What a great campsite in just a stunning location. Literally 10-15 minutes walk to the south rim of the Grand Canyon, and 5 mins walk to the general store and bus stops. Well laid out campground which never felt over crowded, and gives privacy if you want it. Shower and laundry facilities very good and reasonably priced. Very natural surroundings... More

This was my first tenting trip in about 25 years. I chose this campground because you could make reservations. The campsites were widely spaced and seemed well cared for. The bathroom was clean and they also had an primitive outside dish washing area. The showers were fairly far away from most campsites, requiring a car to get to this coin... More

Out of the two of us, it was my first time ever tent camping - now I'm hooked!!! Mather Campground could not have been a better choice for an inaugural camping experience. Check-in was easy & quick - the staff very professional & helpful. We reserved Site# 104 in the Fir Loop after seeing pics of it here in Tripadvisor... More

We arrived late at night and in the dark but the campground was clean and easy to find our site. The laundry and showers were clean and staff by helpful people. It was pretty quite even with all the people around. Sites seem to be spaced out well enough. Made a great launching point to explore the canyon.

Mather Campground is located inside the Grand Canyon National Park, South Rim. Each campsite was large and clean, complete with fire pit and picnic table. One morning, a deer walked right through our campsite! Bathrooms were very clean, and heated. We stayed in a site a few campsites away from the bathroom which seemed like the perfect distance away…it was... More

For all of the people here, it was quiet & we got a great night of sleep. We were at the back of the campground which was closer to the road than I would have chose, so when we return would not choose that back loop again. I booked it online & thought it was more secluded than that. The... More

Sites vary. If you go for one on the periphery, as I did, you have open woods nearby and can find places away from the road to pitch a tent. Sites closer to the road are more constrained for space. OTOH, some loops are a bit of a hike from the laundry and showers (which are very reasonable--the laundry area... More

The bathrooms were spotless no matter what time of day or night you used them the campsites are well kept and spacious enough to really enjoy yourself. The general... More

We camped at Mather Campground for 2 nights at the end of June, 2014. We chose Mather over the smaller Desert View campground (south rim) because Desert View is first come first serve without hookups. You can reserve sites in advance at Mather and they have restrooms, showers, laundry, etc. I knew we would need to have reservations. Mather is... More

We stayed two nights in the Mather Campground, site number 80, to be exact. We found the campground to be very well organized, everything was neat and tidy, virtually no trash or other non- natural objects were seen, surprising because of the large volume of campers that use it. Our site was close to a bathroom facility and had some... More
