Grand Canyon

Conveniently located if you want to get to the park because you are right there but the place was not clean and noisy. Would not return and would recommend going out to TenX for the best experience.

Excellent location, crowded

Campground is in an excellent location, but is crowded year round. Decent sized sites that allow tents and RVs. Little to no seclusion or privacy. Sites are reservable. Firewood is expensive ($8 per bundle) so bring your own if you can. Pay $30 entrance fee + the cost of the site. Bathhouse costs extra $.

Great location, always crowded

The campsite is great. Clean, well maintained, but if you are looking to be out in nature this isn't the place. You are very close to all the other campers. If having facilities is crucial to you, by all means make a reservation (fills up fast). But otherwise I'd suggest camping on forest land down the road

South Rim Grand Canyon

Solid Campground, right at the south rim of the Grand Canyon!!!

Beautiful and Serene

Definitely a great place to camp in order to get the full outdoor GC experience. The sites are very nice, spacious with fire pits and picnic tables. The campground seemed clean and quiet. Restrooms in a good shape. The nights can get very cold (we camped there in early April and temps went down to 20's), since it's so high up (south rim elevation is about 7,000 feet above the sea level). So do some research before you decide to go camping in Grand Canyon. Tons of elk grazing in the mornings. Super serene place. Just like the rest of GC. We only stayed one night, so I didn't use showers, but I hear there is only cold water… Walking distance to the south rim of GC, makes it for easy sunrise or sunset photo opportunities. Grand Canyon Village has a decent grocery store and few fast food options. Don't speed through town…


Great camping spots. Campground has very nice facilities. Good starting point for hiking to different spots on South Rim.

Site 145, Mather Campground, Grand Canyon National Park

Located on the South Rim of Grand Canyon NP, Mather campground has all the amenities of a modern camp site, i.e., hot water showers, restrooms with designated sinks to wash dishes, fire rings and picnic tables. Camp site 145 is partly shaded, and a short walk from the restroom. Like all sites at this campground site 145 is also within earshot of neighboring sites so it's easy to make new friends while sharing stories of the day's activities over the campfire.
