Storybook forest camping at the Grand Canyon, who knew? Mather Campground provides spacious and shady RV, tent, and even horse sites with stars at night that are simply unbeatable. There’s great sites for group camping, and your party may just turn into a group with all the new elk pals you’re bound to make. Water, super clean restrooms, a dump station, and showers means you don’t have to get completely grizzly on your adventures, and the free park shuttle is a short walk to take you right to the rim. Mather is the place to kick it on the South Rim, just ask the elk!

Mather Campground is GREAT. It's a little hard to find when driving from the entrance so check your map a head of time and pay attention to the signs. The bathrooms are great, very nice and clean (even heated during the winter/spring!), there may be occasional elk that romp through the grounds but that's what makes it fun. I would definitely recommend this camp ground for group camping!

Hipcamper Corene

Awesome campground. There's a shuttle system that is included in your park entrance fee, which allows you to get around the park very easily. There's a shuttle stop right outside of the campground. The shuttles run frequently so you can explore a lot of the park in good time. The bathrooms in the campground are very clean.

Hipcamper Kristin

Wonderful campground. Very busy during peak season (reservation only) but very spacious and quiet (my experience anyway). We stayed in the Pine Loop which is tent only but there were a couple campers in the loop anyway. Our site (#309) had enough room for 4 tents, tons of trees for me to hang my hammock, and had easy access to restrooms and water. The only downside was the amount of large rocks that were in the ground surrounding the fire pit and picnic table. Shuttle stop right outside campground and the market is right down the street for all your camping needs. Happy camping!

Hipcamper Jason

This campground is pretty massive and busy but fairly easy to reserve if you plan far enough in advance. There's some cell service with AT&T but mostly a dead-zone. I prefer camping on the North Rim but the South Rim definitely has a lot to offer.

Hipcamper Anne

Very clean, pretty quiet and perfect for tent camping! The campground is massive and a little hard to find so make sure to pay attention to all the signs once you enter the park. There are shuttles to take you to trail heads and look-out points, but we found that driving was just as easy and allowed us to go on our own schedule, this was key for our sunrise hike to Ohh Aahh Point. Our spot had plenty of space for 2-3 tents, a fire pit, and was right near the bathrooms--just what we needed!

Hipcamper Nathan

We went when it was snowing, bring a warm sleeping bag and plenty of hand warmers.

Hipcamper Tierra

ELKS! Everywhere in the campground. Watch the Ravens, they will steal your PB and Jay!

Hipcamper Xanthe

Stayed here during a summer rainstorm and our tent was almost washed away. In case of inclement weather, find an upstream site or at least a good patch on your lot!
