Overall Rating

A campsite that offers everything you need. For those who have not booked 6 months in advance: Save yourself the stress of searching for a campground with available Spaces. Sharing a space is not allowed and will be checked. Drive to the nearby National Forest Campground. This one really great and you will always find a nice place.

“Closest Tent Camping”

Reviewed May 07, 2019

Overall Rating

This was our second time at Mather. We left the Airstream at home and tent camped with my son's scout troop. Though this campground has so many sites, there are plenty of trees all around so you don't feel like you have no privacy, and the sites aren't right on top of each other. This site felt spacious and had a great spot for the ten... more

“Such a VERY Pleasant surprise! Lovely!”

Reviewed May 02, 2019

Overall Rating

This campground is such a lovely surprise! The sites tend to be large; some more private than others of course. It was a challenging squeeze for us to pull through our site with our 22' trailer but so worth it. Be sure and research your intended site to make sure it is doable. There are no hook ups, but there are showers and restrooms.... more

“great location, nice facilities, but campsites need work”

Reviewed Apr 27, 2019

Overall Rating

We had a reservation for two nights and ended up leaving after the first. The location is very convenient, within walking distance to the canyon and lots of trails. The showers were clean and hot. And I was very pleased with the full sized laundromat. But the campgrounds were a little disappointing. Firstly, there’s no cell servic... more

We had 5 tents on a site and up to 3 cars on our site. The campfire rings having a grid was amazing. We cooked a great breakfast. We also some some elk walking through the campsite.

“Five stars if NPS repaves”

Reviewed Mar 24, 2019

Overall Rating

We loved staying at Mather for four days to visit the Grand Canyon. The surrounding forest was filled with deer, elk, and birds, yet had enough breaks in the tree cover to allow for decent solar power generation on our portable panel during the day. We felt like we were in an isolated forest, even though we were in the middle of the bu... more

“Great spot close to the canyon”

Reviewed Mar 08, 2019

Overall Rating

We stayed here to be as close to the Grand Canyon as possible. There are some boondocking spots just outside the park, and normally we'd take those, but this was closer for a short trip, and since there was rain in the forecast, we didn't want to risk the mud on forest roads. We're a 33' 5th wheel (but the model is a 29, so they let... more

Location is close to the rim, visitors center, showers and bathrooms, and the market. Bus system is excellent, but walking/biking paths are not well marked and can be confusing. Lots of pull through sites and a non generator loop! Not suitable for big rigs over 30 feet. Trailer village is available for bigger vehicles and offer f... more

“Walk to the canyon rim”

Reviewed Apr 14, 2018

Overall Rating

Campground in the Grand Canyon park that is clean, quiet and very convenient. Walking trails are easy to follow to shuttles or other areas of the park. We were lucky to score an open site, but suggest making an advance reservation.

Overall Rating

We had been traveling for weeks with our dogs and horses. First off we boondocked on FR 302 in Tusayin, but the noise from the Grand Canyon Airport was horrendous. The next day inspite of it being Spring Break, we were lucky enough to land one of the two sites with corrals at Mather Campground in the group area. We had a great ... more
