I didn't realize the loops were made for parking cars! When I booked, I avoided the looped campsites thinking they were just for RVs. If you have more than one car, I suggest getting a loop! Tent or no tent. We were concerned because we had 2 cars and our reservation told us 1 vehicle was alllowed. Upon checking-in, I... More

The Mather Campground is a great place to camp in the park. Convenience and location are exceptional. Wildlife all around including grazing elk right in the campground! No power, but restrooms and water. Price is reasonable at $18 per night.

We stayed here for 3 nights, and it was a great campground. There is plenty of space between you and your fellow campers nearby. There is a cleaning crew that comes around every day and cleans ashes and the area and the bathrooms and it's very clean. The campers around us were all very clean as well, and nothing was... More

I would highly recommend camping at the top of the grand canyon, don't stay in the hotels. The pitches are private, surrounded by trees, with fire pits and BBQ's. The toilets are heated and are cleaned regularly. You do have to pay for the showers, but it will be the best $2 you will spend if you have just done... More

Since Mather Campground is located right by the grand Canyon Village, I was expecting it to be extremely busy. Also, I booked the last campsite available that weekend.. We got there, people are nice and had our reservation ready (make sure that you book online). Our campsite was in the 200s, and we loved the location. Each campsite has enough... More

Stayed two nights in our tiny trailer. Prompt check-in with reservation. Great sites. Clean, private, table, fire-pit, and a bit of shade. Very dark and quiet at night. Washrooms clean (cold water.) Shower / laundry facility excellent. $2.00 for warm shower entirely reasonable. Wash $1.75. Dry $1.00. Wi-fi at shower. Great place to stay. Make sure that you reserve on-line.

I spent 2 nights here in the middle of April. It was clean with spacious tent sights. The bathrooms and showers were clean and heated. It got pretty cold during the night. Around 15° the first night and the second night it snowed! Being from WI I didn't expect colder weather at the Grand Canyon then back home. But the... More

At first I was trying to look for a place at the lodges but decided to camp instead. Im so glad I picked Mather Camp grounds! My dad camped there before and referred me to it. It was nice, clean, quiet and so relaxing! We had a couple friends pass through which was a buck and an elk. I think... More

rather cheap option, very conveniently located, just next to Grand Canyon. we occupied 2 campsites for 3 nights. I was quite surprised to learn they have showers! 8:00am to 8:00pm at $2 per 8 minutes - that's right at the entrance to the campgrounds. as exhausted as we were each day after extensive hiking (including R2R2R) the shower was the...

The sites we had were very spacious,clean with enough trees for privacy.The restrooms were clean, as well as the hot showers! There were elk, some mule deer, and ravens abound throughout the village.Our favorite campsite registration worker was Klein Quimby. He was quite charming, positive, and very helpful. The others were ok, but did their job nonetheless.
