We visited in March, so the campground was not very crowded, especially the tent-only loops where we stayed since overnight lows were well below freezing. We were in site #292. The only complaint about this specific site was that it was too close to the road northeast of the site and we could hear the shuttle bus come by into... More

The National Park Service generally does a good job with their campgrounds and Mather Campground is no exception. This is a large campground (300 or so sites), but it's spread out over several loops and there's plenty of space. There are numerous restroom buildings and each one has potable water. Each site has a picnic table and fire ring/grill combo.... More

Great campground! The restrooms are very clean and right up the road are showers and laundry service. Everything is well maintained. I've been very impressed with our national parks after staying at a few. The National Parks are almost self sufficient and take very little from the federal government, but the federal government shuts them down first in order to... More

We visited the park last June and I'm just now getting around to writing a review (sorry!!)... Being one of the most visited National Parks in the country, you would expect total mayhem and disorganization, but the Park Service runs this place like a well-oiled machine. Mather Campground was a great place to stay. Even though all the sites were... More

After reading many, many reviews on the best campsite locations for tents, we settled on 293. Wanted 294, but it was taken. It's not so hidden that you can't see your neighbors, but it's secluded enough for car camping. The ground can be rough, so unless you like sleeping on hard surfaces, come prepared. They have fire pits there with... More

We camped four nights here last summer, staying in 3 different sites (in different loops!). We only had reservations ahead of time for 2 nights, but kept extending our stay since it was so gorgeous, relaxing, and with so much to see and do. We just asked at the registration office at the campground entrance each time about another night,... More

My spouse and I spent one night at Mather campground in August 2013. We were going to hike to the bottom of the canyon the next day and didn't want to spend a lot of money for sleeping arrangements the night before. (Also, all the hotels inside the canyon were booked). We stayed towards the back, right next to one... More

This camping location is great. The shuttle is just a close walk, and so is the grocery store. The grounds are well kept, but very basic and small. There is an area to put your tent, a grill, a fire pit, and a picnic table. There is also a nice building with laundry, toilets, and showers to use. I think... More

My husband and I camped here for three nights back in August. It was our first time visiting the Grand Canyon so most can imagine our excitement to simply be camping in the park, a short shuttle ride away from possibly the most beautiful and unique phenomena we have ever laid eyes on! Mather is a very large campground with... More

This was our first visit to the South rim of the canyon and I was very excited and nervous. I spent months reading reviews and researching the campground and had read MANY different opinions on exactly how long your trailer and tow vehicle could be in order to FIT in the campground. Its not like the old days when you... More
