I've lived in AZ most of my life, but never camped at the Grand Canyon. I had forgotten how busy it is at the Canyon and the highway leading to it. The campground was fullly reserved, but I was able to get a cancellation by accessing the web site a few days before our trip. Using my husband's America the... More

The spacing is a bit tight between sites, and that can be a problem if you get a loud neighbor (as we did one night) who likes to drink and carouse. HOWEVER, out of the entire place they were the only people out-of-line -- which is darn rare for a large, public camping place. Note that they are obnoxious with... More

Overall, it was a great experience. My boyfriend and stayed in maple loop. We were close to two bathrooms (which was nice) - not close enough to hear any noises at night. We saw wildlife right in our campsite when we woke up in the morning. The star-gazing was nice. I've never seen so many stars! The campsite was spacious.... More

Great place to stay on my visit to the Grand Canyon, great for planning purposes to be able to reserve a spot. There is a shuttle from Mather Campground (check the park website) that is very convenient, but I was there during monsoon season, and with so much rain I ended up driving to the rim and grocery store (I...

Visiting Grand Canyon was one of the highlights of our trip in the States and we were looking forward to it. We chose Mather camping ground because everything else was either booked, overpriced or too far away. But it turned out we made the best choise although you also have to book early there too. The experience of camping in... More

We were travelling in an RV, so when I booked on-line I was a bit confused by the specifications, which stated that trailers couldn't be more than 15ft. Turns out this is in addition to your actual vehicle. We stayed here 2 nights and I have to say that the National Park rates are a bargain. However there were no... More

Absolutely wonderful campground. I have been all over Arizona and this was the best campground I have been too in this State. The grounds are maintained very well. Staff and People where friendly, it was so welcoming. The Elk and other wildlife where uninhibited by humans. It was so uplifting to experience the connection with nature so up close without...

We stayed here two nights in a pull-through site. Nearby shuttle to several locations at the national park. We didn't have to leave the park for anything. Showers were adequate and bring coins to operate. The park was beautiful.

Mather Campground is a great value if you can get a reservation. We had camp #149 and it was good not great because it rained a couple of nights and the water tended to run through our camp. We overpacked because this was our first big camping trip. I hade everything I thought we would need. This might have been... More

I was in the Oak Loop and the sites were fairly close together but still spacious. Restrooms were plentiful and clean, and there were dumpsters and recycling receptacles at each (much more convenient than some campgrounds I've seen!). The elk were also plentiful, and a very interesting addition to the scenery! The campground is a short walk from the general... More
