Not your KOA-style camping. The campsites are clean. No showers, of course. We found that all the National Park campgrounds are sans-showers. No cell service. But it's at 7,500 ft elevation and cool. Wild animals roam through the park; a real treat for wildlife photographers. We just missed a huge bull Elk with full rack . . . it was... More

Considering the number of campers this campground hosts, the campground is really well kept. We stayed at one of the campsites in the Pine loop and had a very nice time. The campsite (252) was well-separated from neighboring sites, and was a very short walk from the bathrooms. The site was clean with a picnic table and campfire circle. The... More

For our first time visiting the Grand Canyon we had quite the experience at Mather. The sites were very spacious and offered a lot of space however, and this may just be the site we chose, we had a god awful time trying to find a place to stake the tent. It seemed everywhere we went there were rocks and... More

Lovely cheap campsite quite near the visitor center and Grand Canyon Rim. The sites are very spacious and each have a table-set, a fire-pit and a private parking-space. This gives a feeling of privacy - the place doesn't feel crowded even when it's sold out. The bathrooms and showers are kept very clean. There are good shopping facilities and free... More

We tent camped at Mather for 3 nights. We had a pleasant stay with not too close neighbors and a lot of space. The bathrooms are not too far, but the showers are (not walking distance with all your supplies for cleanliness!). The showers are $2.00 for 8 minutes. We were able to hike to the canyon along the rim... More

Camping at Mather campground was a pleasure. The sites are nice and clean. There is a pit to make campfires and a grill so you can cook on. There is also a nice building to do your laundry and take showers.

Stayed only one night with our small tent. Check-in was smooth. The campground is quite big but sites are fairly spread over the forest. Shadow almost everywhere (true luxury in the summer!). Sinks and toilets not memorable but ok. Showers are located at the entrance (only) and cost $2 for 8 minute of hot water. Coin operated laundry and drier... More

Despite how busy it was, we still had plenty of space. Access was easy and the campsites were wide, smooth and within the tree's. On the first day we had a 6x6 bull elk walk behind our tent and eat leaves off one of the trees. The campsite was close by the general store and the Grand Canyon Visitors Center.

THE GOOD: This campground is VERY close to the actual Grand Canyon. It is completely easy to park your car at your campsite and never use it again for your weekend trip. All you do is walk to the free shuttle station and they whisk you away to wherever you need to go in the canyon. This is a very... More

Absolutely wonderful. Hot powerful showers (8 minutes for $2). Wide spaces with lots of trees. Shuttle picked up right at the check in. Easy access to everything. Laundry easy to use! Dump station handy.
