Big Springs cabin rentals are located within the North Kaibab Ranger District

The Big Springs cabin site is located approximately 30 miles from Fredonia, Ariz., on Forest Service Road 22, about an hour drive from the north rim of the Grand Canyon.

The cabins are about a 35-minute drive from the Rainbow Rim Trail, a winding 18-mile hiking and mountain biking trail on the forest that offers stunning views from five scenic overlooks along the north rim of the Grand Canyon.

The cabins are a perfect base camp for day hikes on the Kaibab Plateau, or for group retreats in the cool pines.

Visitors can enjoy picknicking, sight-seeing, wildlife viewing and access to additional scenic overlooks of the Grand Canyon from within the forest and other points of interest.

To make reservations, please visit Recreation.gov or call 1-877-444-6777.
