“Typical NPS Camping: Tight loops with crumbling infrastructure”

Reviewed Jan 18, 2018

Overall Rating

I'm sad to report that NPS camping continues to be a dissapointment for us, with few exceptions (such as Fruita or Watchman). Check-in staff unfriendly, campground roads tight and crumbling with encroaching tree branches to scratch your precious aluminum. Camp neighbors loud through the night, and seemingly nobody around to enforce rul... more

“Peaceful in winter”

Reviewed Dec 15, 2017

Overall Rating

Great place to stay in the winter campsites in Pine loop. Some aren’t very big, just enough to park our 25 ft RV in a few places. Showers and laundry are located about 5 min walk away but toilets were close by. Lots of rubbish bins around. Good place for a quick drive to catch sunrise at the rim 🌅

“Great way to experience Grand Canyon”

Reviewed Oct 06, 2017

Stayed for 3 nights at this site and really enjoyed it. Quiet 2 of 3 nights. Elk hanging out just near our site 3 of 4 days. Walking distance to the shuttle service (awesome). Less than 5 minutes to the General Store which has a deli (pizza, hot sandwiches), gift shop, firewood (Buy it here, don't bring it from out of state) and ne... more

“Fun Tent Camping in the Grand Canyon”

Reviewed Aug 12, 2017

Overall Rating

We stayed three nights in our tent. I highly recommend booking your spot well in advance. We got lucky and found nights available about a month in advance, but our dates were very flexible as well. You do have to pay $30 to get into the Grand Canyon and we paid $54 ($18 a night) for 3 nights online. All other campgrounds in the area ar... more

“Large Campsites - Perfect Location!”

Reviewed Jun 25, 2017

Overall Rating

We spent three nights tent camping in Mather Campground. Booking is best accomplished well ahead of time and online at rec.gov. When we visited in May there were no vacancies and people were being turned away. The location is perfect and there's a shuttle stop at the entrance to the campground. You can actually walk to many of the ... more

“Quiet space”

We were here last week of April. Great space between sites and really quiet. We had a little path close by to the bathrooms. The walk to Camper services was pretty easy. The walk to the rim wasnt too far and paths were easy to follow. Bathrooms were moderately clean and the showers were a bit dated but clean enough Cell cover... more

“Great Campground in Grand Canyon NP”

Reviewed May 06, 2017

Overall Rating

The sites at Mather campground are well spread out. There are no hookups though it does have one centrally located dump station. While it is a large campground, you are not camping on top of your neighbors. Each site has an asphalt pad and some fine tuning with leveling blocks was necessary. Bathrooms have running water and are wel... more

“Grand Canyon Splendor”

Reviewed Oct 22, 2016

Overall Rating

I have camped here a couple of times before in a tent. This time I was in a 30 foot class A motor home. The campground does have a 30 foot limit. Most of the RV sites are pull thru, site 182 was a little tight getting into but very doable. The site itself was large, neighboring sites not close, so I felt like I had it to myself. Als... more

“Perfect Spot Conveniently Close to the Canyon”

Reviewed Sep 07, 2016

Overall Rating

Mather Campground is a gorgeously wooded campground not far from the visitors center, the village, and several outlooks and trailheads. It certainly was convenient, and though we went over Labor Day weekend, it felt surprisingly uncrowded. Most sites are spaced nicely apart, and plenty of trees and shrubs provide privacy. Our pull-t... more

“Perfect for a South Rim visit”

Reviewed Apr 28, 2016

Overall Rating

We came to see the Canyon (of course) and this was a good starting point. The shuttle comes to the campground entry, so you can easily visit any part of the south rim without having to drive. Our site was rated for a 30' trailer, but we had to work to back our 25' into it. The spaces on either side of us would have been easy. Each s... more
