New owners and a new name! The new name is Black Canyon Ranch RV Park. The pool is sparkling and inviting! The sites are narrow for an RV with slide-outs and the hook-ups had not been used for quite a while and were corroded. With TLC and wider, longer pull-through sites, this will be a good stop-over park. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Not very much to add to previous review. This is one of the friendliest campgrounds we've ever stayed in. Quite a few Canadian snowbirds. The site manager isn't around all that much but you can reach her on her cell. Not to worry: the residents will make sure you get set up and welcomed. Small heated pool and hot tub available; bathrooms and showers very clean; good cable TV and Wi-Fi. The 2-for-1 promotion has been discontinued, unfortunately. We would return. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Friendly, accommodating staff. Small town atmosphere. Many returning seasonal guests are friends. Our site, while not typical, was a pull through with plenty of room. Most sites are not this wide but easy getting around. Paved roads, gravel and level sites, good Wi-Fi, voltage and water pressure. All amenities and areas were clean including the pool and hot tub. Easy off/on from I-17. Bring your ATV if your into that. It is on our return list. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Park easy to get to from interstate. Owner was very welcoming, and we got two nights for price of one. WiFi worked very well from trailer. Lots of citrus trees, with lots of fruit available for guests. Grapefruit was delicious. Black Canyon City is really a village, but has decent grocery store, good pizza joint next to campground, and a really excellent Amish restaurant "downtown". I would stay here again. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This was a nice neat park with a friendly staff. The roads were paved and the parking sites had concrete slabs beside your grass parking area. We just spent the night in route to the Grand canyon so we did not have a chance to see all that the park had to offer. The WI-FI was fine as was the cable TV service. I would stay there again, but like many RV parks in Arizona, I felt the nightly fee was excessive compared to RV parks we had used, that were better appointed, in other states. We camped here in a Motorhome.
When we arrived at the park, the office was unmanned, but there was a phone number to call for service. A very nice young lady returned from her trip to the bank in short order, and registered us for two nights. Before taking us to our site she showed us around the small clubhouse and the pool area and directed us to the pizza shop on premises. She then walked out to the site where we were to park and directed us into the site. Although the shade is limited at this park, she did put us in a site that had very good afternoon shade. If you visit at the right time of year, there are many citrus trees on site and guests are welcome to pick fruit from the trees. The site was level and the park was well maintained. Although we did see some elderly residents, there were also many younger people parked here. A tip to those who may be considering a visit of a couple of days, go to "blackcanyoncity.org" and click on "coupons". You will find a coupon for this park that gives you one free night with one paid night. The price of $35.00 covered both nights and tax was included in that price. The young lady who registered us even offered the coupon back so that we could use it on our next visit. Although the park is nothing fancy, employees were very friendly, the park was neat and clean, the pizza was very good, and we would stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
The park is pretty much a parking lot. The personality of the staff was not pleasant. They need more trees, better sites and improvements to the way their guests are treated. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This Park really needs to get a reality check. We have stayed here before and been fairly happy with it, but it has gone completely to the over 75 crowd, so much that it is now run by them. De came in after talking to the owner a week prior. He had told us there was no problem with getting a spot close to the rest rooms, as I am somewhat handicapped. When we arrived the old people who were running it told us the empty spot close to the rest rooms was being held "in case" a big rig came in during the night. We wound up over at the KOA who took very good care of us. Bradshaw is certainly good advertisement for KOA. If you are looking to hobnob with a bunch of really old campers (year round type) and have a big enough rig, this place is for you. we will stick with the KOA across the highway. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Park is family run, and well maintained. Office was closed when we arrived, but self-check in was very simple. No highway noise at all and several stores within walking distance. A lot of long term residents, but everyone was very friendly to us. It is not age-restricted, but i did not see any children while we were there. Pull through site was gravel, quite level, and easy to hook up. Good selection of cable channels and wifi was very reliable at the site. Pool is open until 10 pm, but there are limited "childrens swim" hours. Not sure if it enforced, but it is mentioned in the rules so if you're arriving with kids, you may wish to consider this. A relaxing, friendly, and more-than-adequate place to stop along the road, but if you're looking for a week-long vacation place, this may not be suitable. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
We did an "over-nighter" here because it is 1/2 way between Page, AZ and home. Glad we did. His is a nice park. This is a nice park and worth the stay. It is clean, well maintained and big rig friendly. Long, wide slots available just about any time of the year. The manager is especially friendly and accommodating. The pool just reopened after a major overhaul, the laundry room is neat, and clean. There are many planned activities and short-term customers are encouraged to participate. We will definitely stay here again if we are in the area. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
We have stayed here twice. The park is clean, with a western decor. The trees are not large enough to give much shade. There are flowers, shrubs and mesquite trees throughout the park. The clubhouse has vending machines, pool table, restrooms and laundry facilities. The pool and spa are a nice size. The park is family owned and run. They are all friendly and helpful. You are escorted to your site. Although you are in town, it is a quiet, restful place. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.

I have stayed at Bradshaw Mountain RV Resort often in 2004 and 2005 and have found it to be a very comfortable place. It tends to be very quiet and peaceful and the mountains to the east and west are spectacular. The sunrises and sunsets are especially nice there. The owner has said to me, "We provide country comfort". That is a good way to describe the town and the resort. They have free wireless internet now and that is a big plus to me. Everyone I have met at the park has smiled and been friendly. More than once I've been invited to join the other campers for dominoes, pool tournaments and potluck suppers in the clubhouse. The area is great for four-wheeling and hiking also and all types of shopping and services are close by or within fifteen miles. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.

Wouldn't stay here again. The garbage cans were full by our second day, and very smelly. We stayed over a rainy weekend, and found out that the sites weren't graded well, as there were huge puddles after the rains. Also, there was almost no privacy. For a park that's been open as long as this one, there was virtually no landscaping between the sites. We camped here in a Motorhome.

Nice and quiet other than some dog barking in the morning. Can walk to the grocery store.
We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
The park is older, but we found it clean and quiet. The site we had was not level, but it wasn't bad, we leveled with the wood blocks I carry. WIFI was the best we've ever had at a park !! TV was very good, and electric was wired properly.(I check it before plugging in) Overall, we would stay here again. Landscaping was older, but nice. Typical Arizona, but nice. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Sadly this campsite was very poor. The KOA brochure says landscaped sites well it may have been several years ago. Our site and most that we saw were not level, the gravel had not been raked, goats are allowed to roam around the site in the evenings. My husband used the restrooms/shower area on arrival and said they were disgusting, the urinals were off the wall. There were tools in the vicinity as though work was to be carried out but no sign of this work happening. We are sorry to have to say that we have noticed in general on this trip, January through March that KOA standards are falling but the prices are increasing. The one plus point was that the wifi/internet was very good, a good strong connection however were fairly near the office and the site was not fully occupied. A disappointing stay. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Came to stay in the area for a month but checked out early. The park is run down and trash is everywhere. Restrooms trashy, one toilet not working and no effort to fix it. The showers had black floors due to mold or something. The staff was friendly but need help to get the place presentable. The good part was a large public access across the road for ATV riding, for hiking, and to walk dogs off leash. Rate is based on two week stay. We would not stay here again. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
We pulled in at dark and found a drive-through that was easy to get in. Friendly staff, however the cost of staying at a KOA without their discount card is high. Next time I will find a more cost effective place for a one nighter. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Stayed one night passing through the area. One of the more run-down KOAs in appearance. The staff was very friendly and helpful. The campground was nearly empty yet they placed us next to two full-timers. Not that big of a deal but we could hear their television till quite late at night. The restrooms look like they have been under construction for a long time. We didn't try any of the amenities with our short stay, the pool and the shower were fine. We would probably press on to Flagstaff to the north, or Phoenix to the south next time through the area, although a one night stay would be alright. We camped here in a Tent Trailer.
Cable down due to a problem with the company. Very windy in April.One day it blows the next day it's calm. All gravel. Nice spa,pool clean. Owners were polite.Work Campers were extremely nice. The advertised Saturday Breakfast is a mile down the road at the VFW hall. Incredible view of the high desert when cactus is in bloom. Great WIFI. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We camped here from January to February 2009. As other reviewers have stated, this is more run down than your typical KOA. We were placed near some long-term renters and their garbage would often blow into our site. We spent the first hour after we checked in cleaning up our site. Never used the pool or restrooms, but there was often a bad smell in the laundry. The great staff, beautiful scenery, peace and quiet of the park, and good price made up for the negatives of this campground. Would certainly stay here again. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
This was a very nice park with Wi-Fi and cable included at site. They were finishing up some remodeling jobs in the restrooms and building and it looked very nice. The staff was very nice. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Well, once again I must say that the KOA chain needs to do something with their parks other than sell them over and over again. This one, like so many is just plain worn out. A family from Canada owns it now and just ain't taking care of it. It is all dirt and rained last night and about washed us out. When it was over it was a mass of mud. The shower room had a handicapped room to shower in the wheelchair, someone used it and the place was flooded, add that to a really dirty place and it was pretty nasty. Then someone flushed a pair of dirty underwear down the toilet, what a mess. Bradshaw is run by the seniors, but way better than this. Pass it by! We camped here in a Motorhome.
Pleasant park for people who like the great outdoors. The owners are always making improvements. The WiFi worked great for us. Cable TV worked fine after the staff helped us set up our TV. No fire rings, but we were able to rent an enclosed fire pit for the night. We'll be back again next year. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We will never camp here again! My husband is a travel nurse, currently assigned in Phoenix, AZ. We wanted somewhere out of the city. The views are beautiful here, but that is all this park has to offer. Their wi-fi is unreliable, as I've never gotten better than a "very low" signal, if any. The cable is also completely unreliable. It skips in and out of signal several times per show. We were given several excuses when broaching these subjects and also when we asked to move, due to lack of signal strength. We rely on the internet for school and work. The kicker, they just shut off the water with no warning to fix a pipe. Very inconsiderate. Another reason we won't come back is the drive. It takes over an hour to get into Phoenix with traffic. Overall, this has been a horrible experience. We have been here since January and plan to leave April 22. I would not recommend this campground to anyone long term, anyone who depends on the internet, anyone who likes to take showers at the drop of a hat, or anyone who hates yappy dogs, as they do not enforce the KOA barking dog policy. We camped here in a Motorhome.

I had unexpectedly pulled in late at night because of brake trouble after leaving the RV park I had wintered at. The owner came out to help me into the site and I explained the problem I was having. He took out his cell phone and called a local mechanic who could see me first thing in the morning. An hour after I arrived at the garage the problem was fixed with an adjustment and he only charged me labor. I could have been easily taken, but I had found honest, helpful people. Still being a little rattled from my brake experience I decided to take it easy and enjoy an additional day at the KOA. It is a lovely place with a new pool and beautiful desert landscaping. Everything was so clean and the staff were so friendly. I was so pleased to find them and the way they helped me that I hope to be staying there long term this coming winter season. We camped here in a Motorhome.
It is a nice little park, old but very friendly hosts. There are a lot of full time residents but we had no problem getting an overnight site. They don't have amenities such as Wi-Fi or TV but MUCH cheaper than the other two RV Campgrounds in town. For about half the cost I was willing to give up Wi-Fi and TV. We would stay here again when going through the area. We camped here in a Motorhome.
