I'm planning a cross country trip in February, its a change of assignment so I'm locked into the date. I'm hoping to spend a night remote camping along the Grand Canyon and am looking for advice on if this is feasible, and if so, where.

I was originally looking at Point Sublime but it seems like that isn't accessible in the winter.

I appreciate any advice you can provide.

I think you are going to be hard pressed to find anything close to the North Rim in the winter. Most roads towards the canyon are closed. The south rim is typically open through winter as long as the snow isn't too bad. Is the south rim an option for you?

The south rim would be an option. Do you know of any good sites?

I'm normally all about exploring to find a good camp site, but with a big trip like this, that's part of a move, I'm trying to plan things a little tighter than normal.
