The Kaibab National Forest has 4 districts: North Kaibab, Tusayan, Chalender and Williams. The map I have is for the North Kaibab district only. It does show that the Tusayan district is near the South Rim but with no detail. I can't see if there are areas that touch the rim. I also checked my Grand Canyon topo. It shows that the national forest does not touch the rim but comes very close in several areas. The rangers at the South Rim will be able to give you more detail than I can. There may be places inside the Park where you and your family can hang. Let us know what you find out.
Many thanks, Dave
I might give the rangers a call (Skype) before we go and do some recon...
