You'll find some of the best places to camping at Grand Canyon in this map,enlarge to see it in full size.
Mooney Falls, is named for a miner who fell to his death nearby. At 220 feet, it is taller than Niagara Falls.
The falls' turquoise waters give the tribe its name: ha for water, vasu for blue-green and pai for people. The color comes from the limestone that is highly concentrated in the tumbling waters. In the mist and spray below the falls, delicate travertine ledges shape arcing pools. The minerals also drape the cliff walls in flaring aprons of stone.
If you're in the Grand Canyon you have to do the Heli-Hike which drops you off INSIDE the canyon to hike to the waterfalls!
They simply have to be seen to be believed! Was worth every penny and I would say is something everyone should see and experience before they die.
Mooney Falls - To get there you have to climb thru two (2) tunnels cut in the limestone formations, cross some sections using a chain ladder, and climbing down a ladder.

Swim and wade in the pools at the base of Havasu Falls. One can even walk behind the water fall.
