Loved this campground. We stayed just recently at the beginning of March so the crowds were pretty low. Our campsite.. 172 was an RV campsite for up to 30 foot trailers. We had 0 issues towing our 26ft travel trailer through the campground to reach our site. The site was huge, with a large picnic table and fire ring and... More

If this is your first visit to the grand canyon... this place is huge. This campsite is no exception. If you plan to walk as your main form of transport, reconsider. The sites are well done and would recommend for a friend.

Mather campground is a very well organized campground. You can find there bathrooms, showers and an automat laundry. You can drive till your tent spot, the personnell at the entrance is very gentle and they well explain what are the rules of the campground. They provide a map of the large "facilty" and let you be aware of the presence... More

This was our first stay at this campground. It's huge! There are several very big loops of the campground. Each has a name. The roads wind around through the forest with sites on both sides and many are pull through (maybe all?). They are fairly close to one another but many (maybe all) look into the forest which gives a... More

This campground is definitely my favorite that I've stayed at - at least in a national park! The tent sites are HUGE, with plenty of trees and rocks for privacy and scenery. They're nice and flat too. I could see my neighbor's campfire and that was about it. Bathrooms were very clean and easily accessible; it was also easy to... More

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.

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
