Best Mather Campground sites for 24 ft. motorhome?

We will be spending 4 nights in the Grand Canyon at Mather Campground May 27 - 31. We would like to avoid street noise (east end of Juniper Loop and possibly Maple Loop), and of course would love as much privacy from other sites as possible. We will have our own toilet so close proximity to restrooms is not important. We have been looking at the tiny photos on the reservation website but they really don't show much. If you have any favorites or any advice please let me know. Thanks.

This site has photos of each campground and individual site. May help, may not.

Thank you. I have looked at this site. t does show photos but they are very small and it's hard to really get a an idea of the site. Plus the photos were taken in winter with snow on the ground and all sites are empty. So it's hard to see how close you are to other vehicles, tents, etc. Hoping for some personal experience recommendations.

At Mather, almost all campsites are close to each other, so there's not much privacy no matter which site you choose. Most people are pretty respectful of that, though. The best thing you can do is look at the campground map on recreation.gov; it's actually pretty accurate with how close the sites are to each other. You can also narrow it down by entering "RV" and the length, and it will automatically show you which sites are NOT suitable. (ie, tent only, not large enough, etc.)

Thank you all. We will be making our reservations for Mather Campground in the next day or two, I have looked at all the photos of the sites and the maps. Is there a preference for Aspen Loop over Juniper since it is close to the entrance? Would that area be busier and louder? I see that highway 64 runs along the SW edge of the campground so there might be some road noise from the but what about road noise from Market Plaza Rd. which runs along the east side of the campground? Right now we are looking at some sites in Aspen and some in Juniper and are just trying to decide before the reservations open up. We will have bikes with us to ride around the campground and will be using our motorhome and shuttles to doing any driving outside the park so not sure if being in Aspen close to the entrance is important or not. Any suggestions are appreciated.

The closer you are to the entrance, the more traffic you will have going by.
