We spent four days at the Mather Campground in the Grand Canyon National Park last week and we had a great stay. The largest MH allowed in the campground is 30ft so we were perfect fit. The campsites are spread out enough to have your privacy. The restrooms were very clean and well maintained throughout the campground. We had deer and elk walking through the campground every day which was a really nice sight to see each day. There is a trail on the east side of the campground that is a little over a half mile to the Grand Canyon Visitor Center and the breathtaking views along the South Rim Trail. If you don't want to walk to the Visitor Center you can walk to the entrance of the campground and catch a bus. The bus system on the South Rim will take you nearly everywhere throughout the South Rim. We hiked nearly 13 miles throughout the park and enjoyed the beautiful views the entire time. My 4 y/o daughter hiked nearly the entire time, maybe when she is a little older we can hike down in the canyon.

If you are planning to camp in the Grand Canyon I recommend Mather Campground to anyone. One thing to know is that it is dry camping, there is a full hookup campground just about half a mile up the road called Trailer Village.
