Now GCNP is one of the most visited and NP in the US and one of well maintained one too. Mather campground is one of the many in-park amenities and very well maintained too. I had not done any camping before let alone pitched a tent, so it was a challenging at first but turned out to be just fine....

If you're looking for once in a lifetime experiences, you've come to the right place. I was adamant about camping at first, it being my first time. I can honestly say choosing Mather Campground to be my first will never be something I regret. One thing I wish I would have known however, is that it actually rains at the...

On of our stops during our cross country summer camp with the Boy Scouts. We were a small group (8), had 2 sites on the outer curve. Upon our arrival the boys discovered a bull elk standing in the tree eating. What a site. Good location, showers were ok, but they were worth it. Shuttle service was awesome. Will definitely...

Location is great, showers are available (for a few dollars), and there is a free shuttle bus to the canyon (much easier than walking). But by far the best part for us was a magnificent elk that wandered right past us one evening!

We were on a 7 week road trip and spent a night camping at Mather in early October. We visited 7 national parks and several state parks during our stay and this campground was one of the best we stayed at. The campsites are spacious and give plenty of privacy. The campground is ideally situated and close to the village...

As my friends and I were beginner in camping and we almost passed out from the cold, but the camp ground is really good located. Then by night, as there is no light all around you, you have an amazing sky view with so many stars! The washroom/toilet are clean. Just be prepared because it is really cold by night.

We stayed here one night while passing through and really enjoyed it. Although the website says there are not many amenities, there are. We were pulling our trailer and found the dump station right near the front gate easy and clean. There were two sides of the dump station, so no waiting. The restrooms were clean with running water. No...

We stayed in this campground for 4 nights and loved it. We had plenty of space and a nice fire pit for evening campfires and cooking too. We hiked the entire south rim and have the blisters to prove it.

I have stayed at this campground on 3 separate occasions. Spring, Summer and Fall. I enjoyed every stay. The bathrooms are a nice option and I definitely prefer them to digging a cathole and searching for rocks to use as TP. Nuts and bolts here. The bathrooms have electric outlets without the ground. If you want to use a portable...
