Even though the campground was full the two nights we stayed (over a weekend in August) it wasn't noisy and didn't appear crowded. The campgrounds were well kept and the restrooms were clean. The "accommodations" at each site (picnic table and fire ring) were more than adequate. The showers had plenty of hot water. It is conveniently located in the... More

My boyfriend and I stayed one night at the Mather Campground. We were in the Juniper Loop, space 136. The weather was absolutely perfect, so that obviously affected our experience in a positive manner. Pros: affordable ($18.00/night,) reservation only (www.recreation.gov) (I hate driving around a campground trying to find an empty spot,) fire ring and picnic table at each site,... More

This campground should be called Grand Campground! It is really big and you don't quite feel so crowded as I've had read on another review that visiting the Grand Canyon in August was as busy as disneyland. Well, it is not, there is plenty of space for everyone who manages to make a reservation here. It is well maintained, the... More

We stayed in the Alpine Loop for 3 days. Really hated leaving. The sites are a bit close but we still enjoyed it. Kids had room to play and ride bikes around the loop. Loved seeing the elk stroll through our sights. Can't wait to go back again.

We stayed here for two nights in late July. We stayed on the juniper loop in an RV. This campground is clean and quiet. The bathrooms were nearby but the showers were a bit of a hike! We saw a bull Elk in the campground as well as other smaller wildlife. The sites are all situated in such a way... More

We stayed here four nights during busy July. It was clean, quiet and was a great location to see the Grand Canyon South Rim. For the most part, it was quiet (lots of turnover with neighbors- foreign large groups were loud). Campsites are big and wooded and close to the bathrooms. We stayed in Juniper loop. We showered at the... More

The only way to see and do the Grand Canyon. My husband stopping camping years ago and was the one that suggested we camp out at Grand Canyon. We flew SW and brought our tent, mattresses and camping gear with us for our 2 week vacation and only used it at the Grand Canyon. Even though that was the only... More

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
