However, campers at Jacob Lake don't have to drive at all to take advantage of excellent opportunities for hiking, sightseeing, and wildlife viewing.

Right at your campsite you may catch a glimpse of the black bodied, white tailed, tuft-eared Kaibab Squirrel. It lives nowhere else but here on the North Kaibab Ranger District.

Naturalist programs are available in season, and there is a self-guided trail near the visitor center. Horseback riding and chuck wagon meals are available from a nearby concessionaire.
