Chris and I scouted the area for Kaibab Lake Campground and it is really nice.  It's all pavement to get there too which is a nice bonus.  We reserved a separate site (#73) for our very large RV. However in the two group sites there are three RV spots that would accommodate a 40 to 45 foot rig.  Lots of other smaller RV sites within the group area and tons of tent sites.  Only possible issue is parking for the Jeeps is really limited and they don't allow off pavement parking so we'll have to coordinate parking on the pavement loops.  The group site KG1 has a nice ramada but it is smaller than Dogtown lake.  We'll want to bring pop-up awnings too.  

 

In the album are videos, maps, etc.  Bring any kayaks or paddleboards.  I did not see rentals on site. Cash only for firewood.

 

There is no dump station for the RVs but the Maverik in Williams in close and has easy access to the dump stations if you need it.
