Great campsite, with table, fire ring, great bathrooms, many facilities like a market nearby and shower for 2$. Veeeery nice!!!! 24h open to buy the park tickets (you need to have credit card) and many activities to do in the morning. Mc Donalds nearby if you have a car and very expensive!

Comfortably located if you are visiting Grand Canyon. Free shuttle bus to canyon and village. Clean restrooms. Huge place for tent and car. Firecircle and table available on each place. Unfortunately you must pay for shower.

My husband and I went here for my birthday in November. The weather was cold, it snowed a few times but boy was it worth it! The campground is nicely situated, SO many spots available. We stayed for 7 nights and really enjoyed the peaceful nature of no one else around. The facilities were very well maintained and we got... More

My boyfriend and I went to Mather Campground to hike the Canyon and stay 2 nights. November evenings...it is cold, but we were well prepared and had lots and lots of layers. The facilities were great. We checked in and actually switched sites. We were originally booked for campsite 14 and changed to 232 because it was a bit more... More

We enjoyed a three day stay here in Oct. 2015. We took the free NP shuttle which is a hop on and off system. So convenient...it takes to you to several vista points, each of which is quite different.Got some wonderful photos. The campground has mostly pull through sites, and the problem is the roads are one way so our... More

For $18 a night this is a pretty good campground. The sites are well maintained and the staff at our check in were friendly and helpful. You can't beat the location with it being so close to the market and the visitor center as well as several trailheads. At night we saw plenty of wildlife including a gray fox from... More

Camped two nights here, camp site was clean and very large, picnic type table and fire pit provided. Campground is within walking distance of the Canyon, or if you like the shuttle bus stop that can take you around the rim. The campground itself is large, the staff were OK. Bathroom facilities are located at regular intervals but can be... More

Liked: Price - very affordable at $18 for a tent site. Location - close to a general store and bus stop to all parts of the park. Disliked: Showers were 8 minutes long!! I love a shower but I felt a lot of water was wasted. Shower room closes at 6pm. Extremely inconvenient if you go on a long day... More

1. The campground is extremely near the South Rim Visitor Center and the viewpoints like Mather point so is a huge advantage - you can go and catch the sunrise easily without waking up too early to drive etc. 2. You can hear some of the animals (elk etc.) at night so gives you a feeling of nature. 3. You... More
