My family of 4 camped 4 nights at Mather Campground last July. Huge campground with hundreds of sites, but doesn't feel over-crowded. We actually camped in three different campsite loops over the four nights, because we kept extending our stay and had to move to where they had a cancellation! Well worth it. Pay showers / laundry building near the campground entrance stays open late, but don't forget your flashlight for the walk back up the hill to your campsite. The free shuttle bus will take you all over the park, and it has a convenient stop near the shower building. Take the shuttle to the Market Plaza for dinner at Yavapai Lodge or to pick up groceries at the full-service General Store (much bigger than the name sounds!) Market Plaza is also within walking distance from the campground (maybe a quarter-mile, depending on which loop you're camped in.) Carry your park newspaper with you at all times--it has a wealth of information! Shuttle schedules, maps, ranger program times and locations, hiking / trail info, and much more.
