To clarify precious reviews: Yes, two gift shops and same owner. The western gift shop has free camping, but no hookups. Some spots have a shady pavilion,and there are some teepees you could stay in for free, too. The eastern gift shop offers electric, 30amp, which does work, for $10. Neither has much in the way of food, just some candy bars, sodas and a six pack or two of Budweiser. Our kids (1, 3, and 12) had fun playing in the teepees and random petrified wood about the place. Great spot for a night or two while exploring the national park. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
It is hard to rate this campground, because other than a good level campsites with a picnic table, there are no facilities such as electric, water or dump. However the price is right - free! The campground is situated so one can enter the North entrance of Petrified Wood National Park, tour the park with a RV, pulling a toad, and exit via the South entrance and within less than a mile, boondock at Crystal Forest Gift Shop Campground, at no cost. That can make a pleasant and rewarding day. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This free campground has no hook ups, no dump station, and no water. Its main attraction is that it is located just outside the southern gate of the Petrified Forest National Park. It has fairly level sites , some with picnic tables. The friendly owners provide a place to dry camp adjacent to their gift shops to visitors of the park in hopes of encouraging sales, and we obliged - outstanding selection of polished petrified wood! For its value and location, it is worthwhile. We would stop here again when in the area. We camped here in a Motorhome.
As stated, this is free. What a great idea! But there was no electric available when we were here. Other review sites say yes: for $10 a night. The sites are level and clean, with a covered patio with table, and your very own petrified tree stump by the door. We explored the park from here. The gift shop ladies were very friendly! And they said we could use our generator anywhere, in spite of the signs, because there was no power. I couldn't get the form to take $0, so I put in $1. Actually, after counting what I spent in the gift shop: it might have been more. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is a FREE site located 100 yards from the south entrance to The Petrified Forest NP. It is provided by the gift shop. There are spaces available with picnic tables (no generators allowed) and a section with no tables that allow generators. Great place to park while visiting the park. I rated it a 9 since it was better than I expected for a free site. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Spaces too close together. I don't want to be able to hand the mustard to my neighbor through our windows! There's lots of empty sites here but they cram everyone together in a corner so no one has any room or privacy. The picnic tables are falling apart and have splinters. It is all gravel. It is fairly level. Wi-Fi works but sometimes is slow. They have good cable TV. The dog area is all dirt and has plant stickers in it. There is a nice grass area with large signs that say 'no dogs' . They have a fenced in dog park that is far away from the overnight sites. All in all - it's good for a short stay only. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Rate reflects GS. We stopped here to get out of a high wind warning condition. The previous reviews are pretty much in line with what we found. It was very dusty due to the high winds and not much either natural or manmade to block the wind. Our site did not have a breaker on the power. Water pressure was good. The site was level both front to rear and sideways. It was a good overnight park. They have rolls and coffee in the morning. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
We stayed here three nights while we toured the Petrified Forest/Painted Desert and Meteor Crater and Winslow. The park was clean with a high desert landscape (no large trees) The staff was friendly and they had a cookout each night. There was a dog walking area as well as an off leash fenced dog run. We were close to I-40 but the noise was not bad. We would stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
I-40 stop over campsite but also good stop for the incredible Petrified Forest. Staff very friendly and helpful. All gravel park and not really clear what is site and what is road. Wi-Fi excellent but campsite was very quiet. Although near to I-40 there was very little noise. Would recommend but have to say again that KOA have become expensive. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This is the daily rate for a 50amp pull-through and reflects one discount. Signage was OK. The staff was friendly. The roads and sites are hard-packed gravel and fairly level. The trees could interfere on some of the sites. The water pressure could have been better. There is some road and train noise, but not bad. The cook shack was handy for when you didn’t want to cook. Overall, an OK place for a few nights. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We love this place because of the owners and their Cowboy breakfast and dinner. It's in the desert so there is only a little greenery and a lot of dust. The sights are long and level with good cable. The owners work hard improving the place and are very friendly. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Big gravel parking lot. A decent spot to stop for the night, but wouldn't want to "live" there. Swift office staff with speedy check-in, much appreciated. We'd stop again if rolling through. Petrified forest is miles away. It's a 70 mile round trip to see that particular spot from the park. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
We stayed here in order to tour Petrified Forest and Painted Dessert. Close enough to both to do that. Not one of the best KOA's we've stayed at. The check in person was not very friendly and took a little longer than necessary to get checked in. The site we were given (#40) was at then end of the row and closest to the highway but probably the longest and widest site on that row. Entire campground was gravel roads and gravel sites. Sites are level enough but very dusty. The best part about staying here was meeting some really nice folks right behind us. Avoid the local eatery advertised in the KOA paperwork called Joe and Aggie's, would been better off eating at the campground. The price for the this campground is a little too high. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This park met all our needs, which as full-time RVers, are very simple. Easy access on and off the highway; the park host was friendly and helpful; the park was clean and well-maintained; The pull-thru site was spacious and accommodated our big rig easily; all the hook-ups worked well. The park had all the amenities you'd expect from a KOA. The only negative we experienced was road noise from the Interstate. We especially like KOA parks for overnight stays and this one fit our needs just fine. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Not bad for a KOA, but don't believe everything in their advertising. I took a site supposed to have "plenty of room for those big rigs with a tow without unhitching". When I showed up in my 40 foot MH with tow I didn't want to unhook, I was told "pull in as far as you can and let your car hang out in the drive - it won't matter". It worked because the place was fairly empty late in the season, but I wouldn't trust that when they are busy. Otherwise, no problems. We camped here in a Motorhome.
I was impressed by this KOA...the owner is very friendly and helpful. The BBQ and breakfast were wonderful...nice way to meet others! I agree with the comment regarding the burrs in the lawn...but found those throughout Oklahoma and Texas. I would stay here again and recommend it! We camped here in a Motorhome.
The staff is friendly and helpful...excellent customer service. The sites are level and roomy, although a bit on the short side if you have a long rig and a tow. It's the desert, so there is little or no grass in the RV area and the gravel tends to get muddy when it rains. The park is clean and well-maintained. The WI-FI was good when it worked; it inexplicably went away numerous times while we were there. Nice park! We'll return. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We stayed here for 4 nights and liked the closeness to area attractions such as the Petrified National Park, Meteor Crater and Highway 66 sites. It's an open campsite with a few trees here and there and close to the highway, but you don't really hear it. The staff was very friendly and helpful. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This park has very crowded sites, gravel with nothing in between. It's a big park with a lot of pull-through sites. The dog area had pricklers or something because our had trouble walking on the path. The WiFi worked and then when I tried to go back on later it didn't work. They had a cowboy barbeque for dinner and it was good. They also had a pancake breakfast but we didn't go to that. It's okay for one night. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Good clean park, convenient to Petrified Forest. Staff was very friendly and offered a breakfast and dinner for extra fee. The sites are on gravel, with plenty of room between campers. We would camp here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Well kept KOA. Since it is in the desert it is dry and very dusty, but the owners were very pleasant and helpful. The site was plenty long and level and we were not crowded together. The laundry was too expensive and the pool had a lot of leaves floating in it. But all in, it was nice and clean and we would stay here again if we get back this way. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Clean, dusty, but well kept. Extremely friendly staff. Morning breakfast was good and fast. Would stay again. Very convenient to the Painted Desert, Petrified Forest, and the interstate. Very little road noise, but easy in and out. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Nice, clean park. Great location for Petrified Forest, Canyon De Chelly, and Meteor Crater. Nice, friendly staff. Great dinners and breakfasts. Will plan to go back and stay longer. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Under $30 for a pull-through, electricity and water. Roomy site, level enough for one night. I'd have given it a 6 if it had a dog run. Friendly owner. Hey, it's 100% Holbrook! We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Friendly staff. Close to interstate. Nothing fancy. Flat gravel sites. No dog run. Trash cans by dog area full as everyone used them for garbage since only dumpster was way out front. We camped here in a Motorhome.
The campground is close enough to the freeway to make it really convenient for an overnight, and there are some places to eat close-by. The owner and his son keep the place clean and well maintained. The kid's park is a trifle "dated", but everything works and my daughter enjoyed it. I ran into an electrical problem with my RV and the owner was quick to loan me a extension cord so I could isolate and fix the issue. I would definitely stay here again. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This is an OK campground. The whole thing is gravel and the sites aren't level side to side. It is clean and quiet. Management is friendly and helpful. We spend the night here when traveling through the area, and have spent a week here when we were touring in the area. KOA's in general are a bit over priced, but we still pay the price to stay here. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
The park is okay but nothing to brag about. My site was not level side to side. The wireless internet is slow. everything is loose gravel. but what can you say, it's a koa and they are mostly all over priced for what you get.The swimming pool had about 6 inches in the bottom. The back row bathrooms were closed for the season it said. Will try a different rv park if I come back through here. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Good park. We have stayed here a couple of times. This time three nights. Gravel sites. Near freeway but road is tilted away and noise level low. Evening cookouts for moderate cost. They also have breakfast. All utilities worked well. There are lots of parks and attractions in this area. We also visited the old La Posada Hotel in Winslow which served us the best lunch. Beautiful small hotel. Also, nice Indian ruins north of Winslow. If you go to Petrified Forest be sure to walk down some of the trails. Really a beautiful place. This KOA features some of the clearest sky you can imagine. Lots of stars. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This site is a good place for an overnight stop. The dog run is not fenced. Sites are level, all connections are at the rear of the RV. The cable TV connectors are female. Most cable connectors are male to match the female cables most RV's carry. A male adapter is needed to connect the cable. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Nice stop on our way through. Clean, well kept. Good facilities, nice play area. Level spot, easy in and easy out. It rained when we stopped, otherwise we would have had a nice view of July 4th fireworks! Close to Petrified Forest, which was a nice drive. Staff was friendly. We would stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Person in office was very friendly. Sites are gravel, however they were fairly level. They also had a cookout and we just ate there, very good. Would stay here again if in the area. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Basic Park with some new trees that interfere with Satellite TV and don't provide any shade nor privacy. Too pricey for location and plainness of park. There is a restaurant at the entrance to the park. We only stayed passing through so did not use any facilities. We camped here in a Motorhome.
A little pricey, but a good park. Lots of cable channels. Good Wi-Fi though it does slow down at times. Sites are level. Sites are a little small, but we always had a free site between us and the next RV. Good showers. Low price for the laundry. Lots to see in the area. We camped here in a Motorhome.
For our visit, this campground was okay. Water pressure and quality was good, cable and Wi-Fi both excellent. Very friendly and helpful office staff. Some interstate noise depending on which way the wind is blowing. Roads and sites are a gravel/sand/dirt mixture that I am sure would cause a dusty mess when the wind blows and a mud pit when it rains. Neither was a problem on our visit. So check the weather before you decide to stop. Sites are pretty level. KC diner just up the road is a great place to enjoy serious home cooking if you are sick of cooking. We would stay here again if the weather was right. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Daily rate includes KOA discount. Stayed here 2 nights and only drawback was that site 24 was out of level side to side by over 3 inches. Check-in was friendly and courteous. Wi-Fi was good. Swimming pool was not open due to season. Would stay here again when in area. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Our site was a gravel, pull-through site. It took 2 boards to level my trailer side to side. The sites seem short but the gravel roads are wide. I was unable to tell where any site ended or the road began. I had to ask at the office if my truck and trailer were impinging on the road. Each site has a small tree for shade. The swimming pool was closed for the season. TengoInternet was supplied free for each day with a coupon. Staff was friendly and gave good suggestions of where to eat and how to see the Petrified Forest and Painted Desert. Dog walk is OK but there is no off leash area. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
I stayed here for 1 day. Campground elevation is 5,271 feet. Maneuvering my 40 footer towing a dinghy in the park was no problem. Roads, sites, and patio are gravel. Site spacing is good. Pull through sites hold a 40 foot motorhome and tow. My site 103 offered 30/50 amp service & full hookups. WI-FI and cable were included in the daily rate. I was able to receive AT&T Wireless, G3 Internet ,& Cellular service. I received Dish Network 110/119 Satellite TV from dish on roof of motorhome. Campground is pet friendly. Walmart is 35 miles away and Safeway was 2. I am unable to comment on other amenities due to not using them. Campground was quiet and open. I would stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Access from I-40 is good. Staff was friendly. Park is very small (crammed). The roads are gravel and pads are road bed type gravel. There is a run down playground. The dog walk area is dirt (no run). Lots of feral cats around the property. The place smells like the nearby Burger King. There is quite a bit of highway noise. This is okay for an overnight when you are arriving in Holbrook and the day has been long. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We stayed here over night in site 47. We arrived early enough to explore the town and enjoy a swim before heading to the cookout for a lovely steak dinner. This was one of the few campsites that we stopped at during our 3 month trip that had an option for dinner and a chance to meet other campers in a social setting, which we quite enjoyed. We also took advantage of the pancake breakfast early in the morning before hitting the road again which was a nice change (no dishes to do before leaving!). We would stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Another over-priced KOA; and it’s an automatic $10 fee if you cancel your reservation unless you wait inside of 48 hours then they keep it all. The campground was virtually empty, so there’s no reason to make a reservation with a better campground just across the street. The entire campground and all sites are dirt with nothing for pets. We stayed here one night, but we won't ever make another reservation to stay here again! We camped here in a Motorhome.
A gem in the middle of the desert. Near the Petrified forest, this ia a great park for an overnighter or two. Neat as a pin and well- managed and cared for. The staff are very friendly,knowledgeable, and helpful. There is a good playground for children and nice-sized, clean pool. A good, affordable breakfast if you want it (eggs, sausage, pancakes). Good wifi and cable reception. A good one to put in your memory bank. We'll be back. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
[ 7 / 10 ]
The RV section is gravel with a few trees, the tenting section is grass but right beside the I-40. The sites are very close together and have not been leveled recently. The next door sewer connection, where we were, was very close to our stairs. The water and electric sites are a better choice. As noted by others, they do provide meals on site. When they are not busy they do place people on every second site. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Overall, I'd say it's clean and quiet. Internet connection is very disappointing (slow), so beware, you techno-travelers. There's very limited shade, so make sure your awning is in good repair. For those of you with dogs, prepare yourself with having to find a pee friendly bush that won't bite back (cactus). We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
We parked here 4 nights and wished it could have been more. The park is clean and well kept. All you can eat pancake breakfast ($1,99) is served every morning and in the evening a cowboy cook-out with a fantastic steak. Internet access works great, sites are large and partly shady. Park is located close to famous Route 66, Painted Desert and Petrified Forest. Next time in Arizona we will sure come again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We enjoyed this KOA with a great game room for our niece. We were given a site near the office but the lights were quite bright so I would chose a different spot. The pancakes for breakfast (all you can eat for $1.99) were wonderful. A very popular place for late arriving RVs but it was fun to watch them park. A friendly park. I would stay here again. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
We loved this park. The food (steak dinner for my husband, chicken for me) was very good, as was breakfast. We heard very little road noise, even though it is near I-40. The site was large, had a picnic table and a small shade tree, and the management made sure to spread people throughout the campground, so we had no close neighbors. Lots of playground stuff: basket ball and V-ball too. Didn't use the pool. Restrooms were clean. Only downside was weak water pressure in the shower, and the Wi-Fi (Tengo) fluctuated. The management was very friendly. We would easily stay here again! We camped here in a Motorhome.
Right off I-40, within minutes of Holbrook and Route 66 sights. Near Safeway supermarket. 20 miles from Petrified Forest. A large pool, playground, basketball court, BBQ and breakfast option, friendly staff. No shade, but can see Route 66. Right on top of neighbors. Big Rig Friendly. Would stay again for short stops in area. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Clean campground. Friendly staff and owner. Breakfast and dinner available at reasonable price. Close to highway but noise was very minimal. Verizon air card and phone service excellent. Good cable TV. Small trees so satellite reception would not be a problem from most sites. Good place to stay if your exploring the Petrified Forest. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This was one big gravel pit. Nothing spectacular to speak about. The Wi-Fi wasn't too good, you needed a coupon for each day you needed to use it and the connection was bad. We stayed 3 days but wouldn't visit again. The atmosphere was dismal!!! We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This is a great campground to stay at. The staff is very helpful and really know the area. Close to Painted Desert and Petrified Forest. Plus, it's located right on Route 66 and a great Museum in the town. We always enjoy coming here. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Yes this is an older KOA but they have been making improvements. Rate is monthly as I work on the road. All services seem to be in good order. MUST SEE, Navaho County Museum, great, free and a step back in history. Eats, Romos for Mexican on Hopi (route 66). Take the time to see the town, it is a historical archive. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
We have stayed here several times, and since we chose it again, we are well aware of its condition. It is like most KOA's in that it is pricey for an all gravel facility. It could also use some updating, but remains serviceable. It is somewhat close to the highway and the train track but not so close that it was an issue for us. I heard mostly a barking dog off in the distance outside of the park all night. The owner is very nice and immediately recognized we were repeat customers. He put us on the same spot as the year before, inquiring if we had any trouble the last time we were here. His store was clean and well stocked. The bath houses were also clean and well maintained. We drove over to the competing facility to have a look around, and decided quite quickly that the KOA was the right place to be camped! We will more than likely return next year if we travel I-40 into Arizona. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is a typical KOA campground. They are right off the highway and pricey for what you get. They have long pull through, gravel sites and allow campfires. Roads are also gravel. Cable reception was good. Both our Verizon cell phone and wireless internet reception was good. You can hear highway traffic and train noise everywhere in the campground. They offer breakfast and BBQ at a reasonable price. Bathrooms and laundry rooms were very clean. We visited Petrified Forest NP and Painted Desert (20 minute drive) during our two night stay. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This campground is easy to get into as it is off Business 40 and the town is small. The owners have a fully stocked store and are very friendly. The sites are mainly on gravel and a few trees but then again there aren't very many trees in this part of the country. The spaces are well maintained and easy to get to. Even though you are close to the freeway we didn't hear any traffic noise. Yes, we would stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Easy access, wide, long pull through sites. All dirt/gravel. Friendly owners, who also have a small restaurant for burgers, etc., for dinner and pancakes for breakfast. Great for an overnight stop. We camped here in a Motorhome.
A clean and well-maintained RV Park. Staff was extremely friendly and helpful. They have a small outdoor restaurant where they serve an all you can eat pancake/coffee breakfast for $1.99. They also have a great dinner BBQ with reasonable prices. Their store is clean and well-stocked. RV spaces are level and all amenities were in proper working order. We stayed here for one night while traveling through the area. We would stay here again. There is some freeway traffic, occasionally you could hear a train in the distance. The park is located in a newer section of town next to Hwy. 40. There is good on and off highway access. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
The staff were friendly and well informed about auto repairs and diesel prices. The sites were easy to exit and enter. We enjoyed the outdoor cookouts in the evening and the pancakes in the morning. The sites were not paved, but were level. The restrooms and showers were clean and well equipped. We would stay here again. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Essentially a large gravel parking lot on old Route 66, a couple blocks from I-40, a convenient place to stop and/or stay to visit nearby Petrified Forest (20 minutes east of park). Not many trees in the park, but then, not many trees in the entire town/region. Park offers some basic meals in outdoor dining area, convenient since not much else nearby to walk to or even drive to. Overnight a big storm came in, lots of rain, which created huge puddles in the gravel "park. We got quite wet wading around our coach to unhook and depart. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Typical KOA, tired, old, dusty & overpriced but what could you get to grow out here anyway? Even though this is close to I-40 we did not hear any road noise, park was very quiet and dark. It's a good overnight stop to visit the petrified forest. The morning breakfast was nice and inexpensive. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Road noise from I-40 and view of traffic causes a lower rating. Well kept gravel park with some trees. Wide roads and fairly narrow sites, just long enough. Could barely fit our 40' motorhome with toad attached. Helpful and pleasant owners have made an effort to create a nice park in a desert environment. Utilities worked well and well placed. Verizon cell worked well, did not use our Verizon air card. Spent one night passing through and would stay again if in the area. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Apparently the flood damaged noted by one reviewer has been totally repaired. I saw no ruts anywhere. However, all the sites are somewhat out of level. I had to lift up one side about 2" to achieve level. The also use TenGo Internet, and I'm finding that they do not support either iPhone 4 or iPad connectivity. I filed a support request but have yet to have any answer. Found this to be a comfortable park though noisy as most KOAs tend to be. Love the breakfast served each morning. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Even though I would not consider this a destination CG, one could not have expected more for being in the middle of the desert. Everything worked great, TV, Wi-Fi, 50 amp electric, great swimming pool, friendly owners, friendly campers, etc. They had a cook out in the morning and evening the food was good as well as the prices. We really had a nice time here. Convenient to the Painted Desert and Petrified Forest. Spent two nights. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This is a typical KOA park with all the expected amenities. The owners are helpful and seem to care about what you think (we had a small incident with a transient person and it was immediately addressed). The laundry and rest rooms/showers are clean and well maintained. A well stocked store, cookout breakfast and dinners are also available (we did not use these). The sites are a bit tight for a long trailer but fine for a brief stay. We live in Tucson so this may become our stopping place on our trips going forward. Access from I-40 is easy and Holbrook has everything you need to restock for a longer trip or just grab a rest day. Several tourist sites (e. g. The Petrified Forest) are an easy drive from here.
We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
We chose this park because we wanted to visit Petrified Forest National Park and needed a place to stay overnight. Our options were limited as there is only one other campground nearby and it did not have good reviews. The camp hosts were very friendly and the full hookups worked, but that is where my positive feedback stops. After checking in, we started the drive to our site. The only way we knew which way the road went was because of the huge ruts in the ground. We are traveling in a 43 footer, and requested a site large enough to accommodate us. The campground website claims to be able to handle big rigs, but our experience was different. The campground's Premium Sites were flooded out, so we were put in a big-rig pull-through site. The camp hosts told me that we would be able to fit in our site without disconnecting our tow vehicle. Fortunately, we were planning to disconnect because there was no way we could fit without disconnecting. In fact, we had to park diagonally across the site so our rig was not out in the road. This caused an ill-placed tree to be literally outside our door. The site had many ruts in it from previous campers' jacks. We attempted to level by just putting the jacks in the ground, and the ground was so soft that our jacks dug holes in the ground too. We had to put plywood under our jacks in order for the jacks to be functional, and by the end of our stay (2 nights), the plywood was cracked in the middle because the ground under them settled more. There was very little gravel on the pad site and the campground itself was an absolute mud pit. To add to the bad experience, there were some seasonal campers there who let their dogs run wild. I would not stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is a typical KOA with a friendly staff. Rate reflects 10% discount using KOA card. Sites are gravel, but good and level. We were disappointed that, since we had told them on the online reservation we were bringing a dog, we were placed so far from the dog walk as to make it unusable to us. WiFi is pretty slow. We would stay here again. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
A fine place for a base camp while visiting the area. About twenty minutes from the Petrified Forest/Painted Desert. Yes, as previous reviews have stated, this KOA is dusty, with virtually no grass and few trees. But, that would have to be because it's in the middle of a semi arid desert. The campground is clean and well-maintained with a friendly staff. For a price, breakfast and dinner are also offered. Clean bathrooms/showers. Good internet. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Very nice KOA while traveling along I-40 near Petrified Forest National Park. Weather gets very windy and hot during July. Staff VERY friendly. Stayed here for four nights so we could see all the surrounding area including Winslow and Meteor Crater. Seems like most people stay here one night then move on. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
We camped here 1 night in our tent (2 adults and 4 kids) on our way through Arizona. We paid extra for the "super-tent" site, which had great privacy (fence and shrubs) and a shared shelter with sink. However, the super-tent site is very dusty and the regular tent sites appeared to be on grass. Would probably use a regular tent site next time. Kids loved the playground and pool. Also the cookout dinner and breakfast are excellent, good food and a good value. We camped here in a Tent.
Good location, very nice people, but basically a parking lot. This is where you stay for good and helpful service during a trip, not ambiance. The bathrooms were clean, but it was a parking lot. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This was a very nice park and the owners are very friendly. We tried the cookout and it was very good and a good value for the money. Our only complaint was the cable TV did not work very well. We were only able to get a couple of stations. We camped here in a Motorhome.
As full-time RVers, we generally avoid KOAs because they are not a good value for a couple traveling with no children. However, this one appeared to be the best choice in the area. Glad we stayed here. On-site owners (2 couples) were very friendly and helpful. Check-in was a breeze. Breakfast and dinner is available daily for a fee, prepared to order by owners in a chuckwagon-style outdoor diner. All you can eat pancakes, $1.99 ! Plenty of room in the sites; utilities worked well; laundry room was very clean (5 washers/6 dryers). Great for visiting Petrified Forest/Painted Desert and Winslow. Would definitely stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Rate reflects KOA card discount. This is your typical KOA. Not great, not terrible. It is very convenient to the National Park and worth it for a couple of days stop-over to see the park. Place is all gravel and very dusty - typical western campground. Wi-Fi worked good, as did Verizon aircard. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Nice enough place to stop for the night. Nice people run the place. Have a BBQ dinner and a pancake breakfast on site. Next to Interstate 40 so some traffic noise. All gravel and sites level. Not a lot of shade. Would stay there again on another trip. We camped here in a Motorhome.
The campground is really a dirt/gravel parking lot with a few small trees. RVs are lined up in rows without much space or privacy between them. This campground does have the friendliest staff I’ve ever run into, it’s convenient to I-40 in Holbrook, and has a nice playground, and swimming pool. This campground does make for a nice one night stopover. We would not go here as its own destination. We really enjoyed the cowpoke cookout. This is in a shaded area near the front where they will grill you a steak, hamburger, or hot dog meal for a very reasonable price. They also do pancake breakfasts here. You can eat there at the picnic tables or bring the meal back to your rig. We camped here in a Motorhome.
The previous reviewer must have a small unit because these sites are very small, especially narrow. Our rating of 5 reflects our experience, but it is a nice park and most will rate it higher. Our problems: Rigs over 40' are parked on the back row, giving more room to maneuver. These are probably the worst spaces in the park. They are not level, the sewer connection is a foot above the ground, and there's old tires and scrap metal at rear of park. The gravel had asphalt chunks mixed in, that were large enough to make walking difficult (space 105). In front of us, space 94, a number of people were living in a small, old, motorhome. Not sure what was going on, but visitors came at all hours. We will not stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Stayed here for 3 days while sight seeing. Check-in was great and the owner and staff were very friendly. Sites are big and gravel through out. Laundry and bathrooms are spotless. Store was great and staff very helpful about sights in surrounding area. Would recommend this KOA to everyone. Thanks for a great stay. The rate reflects a KOA discount. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
We were in site #43. KOA is very clean and has full hook ups with cable and wi-fi. The park has a pool, horseshoes, volleyball, basketball court and a large playground. The entire park is gravel except for tent sites. If tenting you have to move your tent everyday so you don't burn the grass. KOA has a store and the gentleman checking us in was friendly. We did not use the restrooms or laundry but I suspect they were in working order. The sites have young trees on them, give it a few years and they should throw more shade. Eacn site comes with a picnic table. The site width was generous but we found it not long enough to park our toad behind and we have a 35 ft Motorhome. We didn't watch any TV but there were 55 channels available on the cable list. Verizon worked here-ATT did not. Shopping, gas and restaurants are all nearby. KOA offers pancake breakfast and Cowboy cookouts, neither were going on when we stayed. The Petrified Forest about 20 miles back to the east of the KOA. I would recommend as a good clean, safe overnight spot. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We needed a quick overnight stop to avoid a snowstorm to the west. Check in was a cinch, we don't have a discount card, but owner accepted AARP even w/out membership card- nice touch. Sites are a bit close, but very suitable for a stopover. Hookups were in good working order, nice selection of cable channels. WI-FI was available, but we used our Verizon air card. Very easy access from I-40, and we were not bothered by road or train noise - it either wasn't loud or we were dead tired. We did not use the showers/bath houses, so can't comment on those. We would come back. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Sites are a bit close for our tastes but since ours was not a long term stay it was OK. We also prefer concrete or asphalt pads and it was all gravel. Hookups were in good working order, nice selection of cable channels. Wi-Fi was available, but we used our Verizon air card. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Very nice staff at check in. Gave good clear info for parking and Wi-Fi. Wi-Fi worked better here than in most other places. A little noise from highway but not too bad. Stayed only one night. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We stayed here on our way to and from the Balloon Fiesta. This is our first KOA where the Wi-Fi actually worked! The sites are nice and wide. The park was full before the fiesta, and empty on the way back. This is one KOA that I would recommend. Our rate reflects the KOA Value Card discount. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Typical KOA park with good electric and water hookups. Since we were only staying one night, we didn't get a sewer hookup site. We got the AARP discount of 10% which paid the taxes. This place would be good again for a one night stay. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This was a nice campground with all of the amenities you would want, including free wireless internet. We used it as base camp for Petrified Forest/Painted Desert which worked well. As with most campgrounds in Arizona and NM, it was all gravel (sites and roads) but it was not dusty when we were there. Sites were very level. I would recommend this campground and come again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Great campground to stay at while visiting the Petrified Forest National Park. Campground is easy in and easy out. All sites are pull through with ample room to maneuver in and out. No shade trees as of yet as the trees are young. The hookups are all located closely to make hookup easy. This is an all dirt and gravel RV park but the gravel is enough so that when it rains it's not muddy and it did rain while we were here. The power is good, no surges of any kind. Would stay here again. We camped here in a Tent Trailer.
This is a standard KOA: good level gravel sites, good Wi-Fi and TV reception. It has easy access to I-40. Some sites with shade: we got one. A clean pool area and friendly staff. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is a large, level, gravel campground. Some trees, but probably 10 years from being real shade. Friendly staff. Had the pancake breakfast which was OK and at a reasonable cost. Verizon cell and aircard signal was very good. Not very busy, so campers were spread out. Utilities and cable were good. We would stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We stayed here the 3rd and 4th of July. Location was close to everything we wanted to visit. The petrified tree in front of the office was spectacular. We attended the Fireman's BBQ on the 4th and the fireworks that night. We would stay here again. Our grandson's liked the pool and the laundry room was clean. A Park Ranger from the Petrified Forest presented a late afternoon program for the campers and a small western combo provided good, toe-tapping music while steaks were grilled in the chuck wagon. We did not eat supper or breakfast there because we prepared our own food. A nice stay. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Very nice park. Convenient to Petrified Forest, Painted Desert and Four Corners. Lots of things to do in this area and this CG is convenient as a home base. We had two active 10yr old and the playground was excellent although dusty. The pool was cold but refreshing. Breakfast and Dinner available but we did not use them. Weather was perfect. No freeway noise. Friendly staff and they tried to space out the campers so you did not feel crowded. We would stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
The campground was nice and the people were friendly. They offer breakfast and dinner every night at a reasonable rate. The swimming pool was clean and lots of places to sit. Not many shade trees near camp sites though. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
There was no shade at any of the sites. Lots of gravel and dirt - very dusty. Bathrooms weren't great. Two of the stalls were out of paper and the floor in the shower stalls had lots of hair - more than should be there if they cleaned the floors every day in my opinion. The staff members at check-in were very nice. The park was fairly empty, yet they put someone right next to us which didn't make a lot of sense to me. The playground was okay. We didn't use the pool because of thunderstorms but it looked clean. Not sure if we would stay here again. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Mostly all large crushed rock and dust. Big rig sites were large enough. 50 amp, water, WiFi all OK. Management friendly, but must question their judgment when they sent a tow of a disabled motorcoach right next to us. There were plenty of other sites available. The noise of a large diesel tow truck, flashing lights and spotlights was not a good experience. The "Cowboy Cookout" provides a decent steak dinner and breakfast. Otherwise not much to recommend it. We used it as on overnight stop - which was enough. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This was an excellent campground for a base camp to eastern Arizonia. The staff were friendly. The Chuck Wagon food was good. The sites were level and the facilities were well kept. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
OK campground. Nothing to right home about. The air card worked OK. The sites were slightly leveled. Pull throughs are short! There is nothing going on at town. Mesa an Italian restaurant was tasteful. The one thing that we did enjoy at this campground was the weekend breakfasts. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Everything below is accurate + Spotless Pool and a 'Cowboy Cookout' providing eggs etc. in morning and Burgers, Dogs and one of the best NY Steaks you will ever eat for very reasonable $. We camped here in a Motorhome.
The friendly owners have made this RV park one of my favorites. We had an electrical problem and the owner came over to help and even jumped in his truck and went to the hardware store for us. I've never been so well treated by owners. Sites are level, though the entire park is gravel. This is typical for the area. There are young trees, so one day, it will not seem so barren. Even so, I haven't seen another park with trees, so the new landscaping is nice. Cable is great, too. That's hard to find in RV parks around here. Next time we come to Petrified Forest / Painted Desert, we will make a point of staying here. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Adequate for big rigs if the park is fairly unoccupied. We parked on an end site with exit to a driveway through the park and were fine. Bathhouse and laundry were clean but very old. The pool had not yet opened for the spring/summer. Breakfast was good and plentiful for a very cheap price. In our opinion, if the KOA's are going to charge extra for kids, they need extra entertainment options for them. If some options are closed for the season, then reduce the price accordingly. The owners were hands on managers and were friendly. Wi-Fi was fine with good reception. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This camp is run by a husband and wife team. The wife was very pleasant and helpful, even apologized for the weather. (It was very cold and windy when we camped here.) However, her promise of excellent WiFi service did not materialize. When I had trouble connecting the WiFi and talked to the husband about getting help he could not offer any. Finally I asked for the support telephone # for the system and I ended up having to spend 15 or 20 minutes on the cell phone before getting help from Nomad, and even after that I only had intermittent service for about 1 day out of the 3 days we stayed. Park was all sand and gravel, but this is typical of all parks in this area (Northern Arizona). Our pad was reasonably level and roomy. There may be shade there someday, but trees are small so it will be awhile, and then only after leaves have sprouted in late spring, as they are deciduous. Adequate pull throughs and 50 amp service available. Cable TV reception was adequate but not great. Nice gift shop for an RV park. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Very friendly & nice owner/operators. Felt right at home here. The whole campground is gravel. No grass and small trees. Pool was closed. Wi-Fi and Cable TV is free. Gravel roads are not lit at night. For some reason the don't turn on the street lights. I-40 in across a field from the campground but surprisingly there's very little road noise. This really is not a park for kids. We would return. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Nice park with nice big sites. Clean showers and rest rooms and nice dog walking paths. The owners are great. Very friendly and make you feel right at home. Highly recommend this park! You can be sure I'll be visiting every year on my way down to AZ and back to MI. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is a good KOA with level gravel sites and great wi-fi and cable TV. The staff is friendly and helpful. They take great pride in their business and were all painting the office while we stayed here. They are not serving the pancake breakfast or cowboy supper right now as it's the off season, but we've been here before and had it and it's delicious. We stop here every time we pass through Holbrook. There are some great old Mexican restaurants downtown that we always have to try when we come here. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
A good campground with good cable and WiFi. Nice size sites. It's all gravel because it's in the desert. I would give it a 7, but the owners are extremely friendly and they have the Cowboy Breakfast and Cowboy Dinner. $2 all you can eat pancakes with coffee. The dinners are reasonable too, but it is really fun. We go out of our way to stop here! We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is a good park, but not a 10 in my opinion. It is basically a large gravel parking lot. The sites appear to be relatively level and of adequate size. Few of the trees are large enough to provide any shade. The Wi-Fi and cable TV worked well, but as is typical at KOA's they cost extra. The on-site breakfast and dinner is a nice option. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
This is one of the most welcoming campgrounds I've ever been to. I arrived after 8:00 pm, and was impressed to find the office still open, even though it is not the busy season. Wireless internet is free with a code provided by the office, although it appears that they charge a fee for monthly campers. Cable television works well, although they do charge $2 extra per day for cable, so make sure you get a site without it if you don't plan to use it. The owners host pancake breakfasts in the mornings and cowboy cookouts in the evenings May 1 - Oct. 31. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
We used the park as an overnight stop. The entire park is gravel and found our site level. Free wi-fi with a strong signal. The sites were large. The staff was friendly. We would use this as an overnight stop again. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Very clean, and Owner was great. WI-Fi works well,no road noise from highway. We enjoyed this place so much each time we travel the area we stay here. Also great pancake breakfast in morning. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Here is an owner that truly understands that how you are treated at check-in sets the tone for your entire stay, be it a week or a night. Couldn't have asked for more! Interacting with guests during "Cowboy Cookout" was a nice touch. Yes it's all gravel, no, there is no shade but it is the desert. Nice clean, safe, well cared for place to stay. Facilities are well cared for, hook-ups in the right place, Wi-Fi and cable TV are excellent. We certainly would stay here again. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
This is a basic KOA near the I-40 freeway. No shade. However, it has all the amenities (i.e., Cable TV, 50 amp, nice wide sites). All sites, as well as roads, are gravel. Not a bad place to be for a day or two. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Clean park with lots of amenities and great wifi. Staff was terrific, providing all kinds of information to us. Dog area isn't the greatest but overall, great value. I will definitely stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
The rate is more than I like to pay, but the choices in the area are not good. This is a nice clean and safe place to stay while visiting Petrified Forest National Park. Great staff. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
It is Arizona so not much grass to be expected. Nice campground with very friendly and helpful owners. Have a BBQ (fee) in the evenings. Free Wi-Fi which was nice for a KOA. Clean facilities. Easy access to the National Parks. Staff very accommodating with odd time arrivals and departures. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Great place to stay. Nice welcome and very helpful staff. Good playground and pool and easy access to National Parks close by. They provide a nice pancake breakfast outdoors in the mornings. Nice touch! Best overall campground we've used. We would stay here again. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
There was a very friendly staff, nice pool, good playground for the kids. Great proximity to Petrified Forest National Park, and there are numerous eating establishments nearby. Campground also offered a "chuckwagon dinner" with live music, at a reasonable price. There aren't a lot of camping options in this part of Arizona, and we'd gladly stay here again. The only drawback is that the campground is essentially one very large gravel parking lot, with almost no delineation between the interior roads and the sites. This doesn't help the dust, which already is omnipresent due to the desert location. We camped here in a Tent Trailer.
Owner/operators make a nice arrangement. Large sites, gravel not too bad for the cycle, pancakes a nice touch. Scenery in area great - two day to four days. Would certainly return. We camped here in a Motorhome.
I agree with all previous positive comments and would add that the pool was large (by KOA standards) at 50 X 30 feet, sparkling clean water and heated to 81 degrees on May 2, even though the air temp was below freezing at night. Enjoyed their breakfasts and cowboy dinner. Incredibly friendly and helpful owners. We intended to stay one night but opted to return after seeing the gorgeous Painted Desert and Petrified Forest Natnl Park. Overall an excellent park. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Great people, very much a family hands on campground. Laundry was clean. Showers were clean and the owners were great. The pool was not operational yet, but it had been recently painted and looked great. Good playground for the young ones. Plenty of restaurants in the area. Safeway in town with pharmacy, and pharmacist was very helpful with a special order. We enjoyed our stay very much. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Typical KOA, with RV sites right next to each other, but pleasant enough in the off-season. It's close to the highway, but there's not much noise. The sites in the back are nice and dark. Wi-Fi good. Tenting sites nicer than the average KOA, with actual grass, a rarity in that area of the world. Big playground area right near the bathrooms, with some fun equipment and big trees, But, and what IS it with KOAs? it's as if corporate headquarters mandates that every KOA playground contains at least one piece of really unsafe playground equipment, in this case a home-made climber that offered a wide variety of ways to accidentally fall six feet to the ground. And I'm not an over-protective parent! This KOA is quite convenient to Petrified Forest National Park, and the town of Holbrook is a delight to anyone who likes rock shops, as there are a whole bunch, all featuring legally-gathered petrified wood, so you can take home all you want without stealing from the park. Be sure to check out the great tourist-trap rock shops right outside the park on the Holbrook side. The campground is also close to a lot of fast food, but avoid the KFC, unless you want some edgy entertainment and bizarre stories to take home. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Good campground with level sites. We were in #11. Friendly staff. Convenient location for Petrified Forest and Painted Desert. We will return to this KOA. Not muddy at all while we were there. We camped here in a Truck Camper.
This is a nice enough place, but compared to others, if you want a memorial extra special place to stay, this is not the one. Not their fault, just not a very pretty area. The people were extra friendly and helpful, but the park just lacks for beauty and things to make the stay great. We would look for a different stop on our next travels through the area. Make it to a different town or area for the evening. We camped here in a Motorhome.
There are limited campgrounds available in this area to visit the Petrified Forest. This campground is a glorified car park with no landscaping and was very muddy. Entrance was quite tight and limited area to park and register. Sites are flat and wide but totally gravel. Dog walk was just the perimeter around the campground. Would not stop here again We camped here in a Motorhome.
Keeping in mind this is in the desert, it's an OK park. Clean sites, utilities a little inconvenient but not bad. Spaces a little close, but level, easy to get into/out of. Staff good. Have a well equipped store, and good dinner and breakfast on site. Good place for one or two night stay-over. Would stay here again. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Park is entirely gravel with a few small to medium trees. Shade is a premium in this hot, desert environment. Spaces were OK width (not generous) with just enough room for provided picnic table. Hookups concerned me because water faucet was about 4" off the ground and inches away from the sewer connection. Restrooms and showers were clean and about average quality. Shower heads are too low for anyone over 5' high. My wife experienced problems with water pressure and scalding when toilet was flushed. Extensive cable TV channels were provided. I had problems connecting with the free WiFi service and the office staff wasn't knowledgeable about WiFi. I eventually figured out a workaround. Nice pool & playground for the kids, but none of the extra recreation possibilities that are featured at many KOA parks. Park staff were very nice and helpful and they even offer a great pancake breakfast in the morning and a "cowboy cookout" in the evening (for a very reasonable additional fee). The City of Holbrook doesn't offer much to the traveler except opportunities to buy rocks and petrified wood. We didn't find any decent restaurants or other tourist spots nearby. The Petrified Forest is very close to the park and the 28-mile drive through the National Park is very RV friendly. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is a great little RV park. The park is a little worn, but the owners are friendly and helpful. They also have a cowboy cook out from 5:30pm to 7:30pm that features steaks, hamburgers, hotdogs, etc.. The price on the food is reasonable. There is a playground for the kids also. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We stop here every time we go through Holbrook. The place is a lot busier than it was last year when we went through. There is a nicely stocked store with lots of trinkets, as well as a swimming pool. They serve a Cowboy style pancake breakfast as well as a Cowboy Steak Dinner. If you don't want steak, you can order chicken, hamburgers or hot dogs. Staff is friendly. Good gravel surface roads, as well as plenty of room for slideouts. Each site has a picnic table. We will definitely return. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Overpriced. Noisy traffic, poor water pressure. Good points. Was able to get in and out easily with a HDT and 35 ft trailer. Was in site #30, an end site. We stayed here a few days so plenty of room for us. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Nice place to stay overnight or visit the area for a while. Only complaint was that the dog's were noisy and the owners did not do anything about it. Lots to see in the area. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Location is good and easy, but the drive-through sites are short to keep your toad hooked up. It is dusty, with a picnic table at each site. Lots of small trees, but no grass, and light on the gravel. Reception lady was nice and helpful. I would stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Wonderful owners-- very friendly and helpful. Very clean, well-maintained park. Good wifi and cable TV. Also, the town of Holbrook has lots of fun stuff to see with Rte. 66 attractions as well as Petrified Forest Natl Pk. Only slight drawback to this KOA is that it's on a hill overlooking the interstate, so noise might an issue if you don't have a well-insulated trailer (or if you want to sleep with windows open). It didn't bother me much, so I give this KOA a high rating! We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Basic gravel lot in the middle of the desert. The staff was very helpful and provided a great map for sight seeing. Not a big fan of KOA's, but this place is definitely worth a stop if you are traveling on I-40. Pancake breakfast and chuckwagon dinners are suspended for the season so we didn't get to sample the fare. Place fills up even during the week. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Although this is not one of the usually high-rated KOA campgrounds, we really liked it. The staff were very friendly, the laundry was clean, and the food was outstanding. The wireless internet worked extremely well which is more than I can say for some places that advertise it. This campground had a very comfortable feel to it. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is a very nice park and has all the amenities that you would expect at a KOA. The staff is very friendly and work to make your stay enjoyable. The pancake breakfast is great and they will also cook-up a steak for you in the evening. There is lots of natural beauty to see in the area and they also provide you a tour map upon arrival. I'll be back when in the area. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Friendly, easy to use Wi-Fi. Pancake Breakfast is available daily and they have a limited supper menu. Close to area activities. Convenient to I-40. Easy to get in and out. We camped here in a Motorhome.
[ 10 / 10 ]
Spotless,friendly, excellant food, great place to stay!!! Level sites, easy hookups, very nice campground. Have plenty for you to do, great tour maps and did we mention FRIENDLY. This park could make me a KOA fan. We will return! We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Older and typical KOA. The worst part of the park is their sites and roads. The roads and sites are dirt, gravel and very dusty. Roads and sites are narrow. When I left I had to drive through empty site as I couldn't make turn on narrow road. I walked in neighbor's patio area to access my utility hookups. Staff was friendly but could have helped narrow site issue by not putting everyone together as there were many empty sites. My water spigot was 12" above the sewer hookup. I find this unacceptable. They advertise heated pool, but it was very cool on 90 degree day. Most people also thought pool was too cool. Their chuckwagon dinner and breakfast were great. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Typical KOA. Clean gravel sites which are very level and fairly close together. Very friendly and helpful staff. They are still serving their pancake breakfast, and cowboy cookout daily. This is a quiet campground which fills up every night. We were surprised at the number of RV's that come in each day. Noise from the Interstate was not a big deal. This is our third visit to this campground and the longest time we've spent which is one week. There's more to see than we first thought here if you like old historical buildings and the desert area. We would use this park again. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Park was very dusty due to them working on sites. Thought it was over priced for the area. Convenient to restraints. Would not stay here again because of better parks close by for less money. We camped here in a Motorhome.
The owners felt like long lost friends at the end of a long day of driving even though this was our first stay at their Holbrook KOA. They and their 2 sons were so warm and friendly. Owner spent considerable time helping me get my laptop hooked up to Hotspotzz so I could stay in touch with my friends and family while on the road. He went way out of his way to help me and was so cheerful while juggling trying to hook me up, calling Hotspotzz when we had problems, and checking in other campers. We met several people who said they went out of their way to stop here this year after having been here before, just because they wanted to visit with the owners again. What more can I say? It is such a joy to be around people who enjoy their job and their customers so much. We camped here in a Motorhome.

We don't normally stay at the KOA's and now we know why. We spent a nights stay at the Holbrook KOA and we were NOT impressed. We felt like sardines in their very small spaces. We had a popup trailer next to us and could hear everything from them. We only have a 24'class C, but any one with slides would be right up against the person next to them. All the dogs seemed to behave themselves, but a lot of kids screaming and running around acted worse than any dog I've seen. We had our AAA book and it said SPECIAL RATES FOR AAA $19-$21, we brought the book in and they said, OH, sorry those are wrong prices. This has happened at every KOA campground we've stayed at. It was $26 for only electric and water, if we wanted anything else like sewer or cable it was more. The WiFi was $5.95 and then we tried to get tuned in and it didn't work, the staff was of no help. We were very disappointed with the grounds. We took our dogs to the 'dog run' area and there was huge ant hills with killer biting ants and we spent the next hour picking out stickers from all the brush around. Road noise was awful from I-40. It did have clean showers, in the tent area, but the front ones were just OK. We wouldn't stay at this KOA again and we aren't picky, have stayed in the Wal Mart parking lot with more amendities. The Woodalls book's review was great, so trusted that, but won't again. We camped here in a Motorhome.

Fairly typical KOA. Sites are level pull-throughs with not much space in between. Spotless laundromat and nice pool. They serve an outdoor breakfast and dinner in season. Hotspotzz WIFI is available for an extra fee. As with most KOAs, a bit pricey, but you generally know what to expect. Very friendly and helpful staff. A good place to stay while seeing Petrified Forest NP and other sights. The office provided us with maps and tour suggestions. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
The owners went out of their way to make our stay great. He helped me set up the WIFI internet, as well as explain all the options for the internet that were available. They also had driving tours printed in their welcome newsletter which I thought were great. The pet area was very nice with lots of trash containers available. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This park is clean and management is helpful. WiFi is available but costs $6 for a 12 hr block. We have stayed at less expensive campgrounds that offer it at no extra charge. Cable costs extra as well. There is a phone line available, however, all dial-up is long distance. We were there in late April. Even though temps were in 80's the pool wasn't open yet. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Clean campground with *excellent* management team. They also grill up some great food at
night and for reasonable prices. WiFi on the campground has good coverage with reasonable (but not great) speed. Park is not much to look at, but well-maintained. I would certainly stay again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
[ 9 / 10 ]
This is a very nice KOA park. Park is clean and in good shape. All sites and roads are
gravel. Staff was nice at check in. Cowboy cookout 5:30-7:30 pm and pancakes 7:00-9:00 am, very good. Some road noise from I-40. We camped here in a Motorhome.
[ 8 / 10 ]
Extremely friendly/helpful staff. Nice large pull through sites. The managers have a
steak barbeque every night with the best steaks I've had in a long time. Reasonable price too. We camped here in a Motorhome.
[ 7 / 10 ]
Good location for sightseeing; everything neat and clean; mostly all gravel. Easy interstate access We camped here in a camper.
[ 7 / 10 ]
Clean campground. In town on a busy street. Level easy access sites. We camped here in a camper.
A great campground near I-40 and the Petrified Forest National Park. It is not fancy but the sites are all 100' pull-through and the utilities were good. Friendly staff and free coffee and muffins in the morning at the office. They also have an amazing display of petrified tree sections adjacent to the office. It is a great stop along the way for a day or two. Not a luxury park with a pool and all. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Very long pull-throughs. But if they were full you'd be very cozy with your neighbor. The price is right for an overnight stop. Wi-Fi was above average. I would stay here again. Eat at the Wayside Cafe. Very friendly people and great food! We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Check-in staff is very friendly. Coffee and muffins are offered in the office in the morning. The campsites at this campground are long and narrow with a picnic table on a concrete pad which is very nice and kept dirt from being tracked into the rig. It's definitely big rig friendly with the 100 ft pull-through. Laundry room is large with 8 washers and 5 dryers at $1.50 per load. Bathrooms and showers are old but kept very clean. We will definitely camp here again. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This park is basically a rock parking lot with hookups. It's OK for an overnight sleeping place but we prefer to stay in places with a little more eye appeal. Positive notes are the showers were clean, the laundry was clean and the equipment worked, and the staff was friendly. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Rate reflects GS discount. Friendly owner and staff. Good park for the Petrified Forest. We only spent 2 nights here this time. Years ago we did spend more time while visiting the area. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Very, very windy until dusk. It's the desert so expect dust. Best part of the site was the length of the pull thrus. I believe you could park two motor homes with toads head to tail. Many options along site to connect sewer, electric and water. Showers were clean with plenty of hot water which you will need after being outside in the dust. Stayed for one night so it served our purpose well. Probably would not choice vacation spot but a good stopover. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Very friendly and helpful staff. Sites are plenty long, but would be very close together if park was full. Restrooms were clean but sadly in need of updating. Sites are basically dirt with very little gravel left. Park was quiet and we would stay here again. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Holbrook, AZ is in the desert, so the area is sandy and dry. Good Sam discount applied. RV sites are mostly pull through and very long. The park is clean and desk check in was friendly and efficient. OK is about 19 miles from South entrance to Petrified Forrest National Park. We stayed here 2 nights. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
The park sites are very long pull thru's. They are a little narrow but the length gives you the feel of open space. The main roads are paved and the spots are gravel as is the center road in the park. The utilities are all good and located in multiple places along the site so you have the several choices depending on how you want to park and the location of the hook-ups on your rig. They have big rig sites although it looked like most sites could take large RV's. The wifi was good better than most parks. The office is friendly. We would stay again. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Holbrook never appears to have much going on, and is not a shopping mecca, but it is the nearest town to Petrified Forest National Park. It can be very windy here; although, it was calm when we visited this time. The OK RV Park looks better than it did when I was through about seven years ago, so we gave it a try. The park is far enough off the freeway and the rails to be relatively quiet. You will hear trains in the distance. The staff were friendly, efficient, and helpful, and gave us useful information about local businesses. As is typical of southwestern desert campgrounds, the roads and level sites are gravel, although some have concrete pads between them. The place apparently changed hands a few years ago, and the current owner is slowly making improvements. Some trees have been replaced and all appear to be alive. The spaces are ample, quite long, and many are rather wide. You could park a sixty-footer with a toad in the one we got. There are codes for the WiFi which works well, but is a bit slow at times. The restrooms we used are a block with two each mens and womens. The mens room I used had two toilets, two showers, two sinks and a urinal. The restrooms are older, and somewhat run down. However, everything was clean and worked properly. The restrooms we used are not really well-adapted to handicapped use, but others in the campground may be. The dog walk is along an unpaved road and grassy field running along the back of the park. Remember that Arizona does not use Daylight Saving Time, but stays on Mountain Standard Time all year. This appears to be a point of pride with Arizonans. We stayed two nights. We would stay here again if in Holbrook. We paid $54 for two nights ($27 per night) with a Good Sam card. We camped here in a Tent Trailer.
We spent 3 nights here because it was convenient to the area. It's a bare bones park with no real amenities. The back half of the park was a trailer park with some very old trailers. The staff was friendly and the park was clean. One issue with water, we were told when we arrived that water would be turned on at 10AM and off at 6:30PM because of cold weather. It was a minor inconvenience but felt we should have been told when we made reservations. We would probably stay here again for a night or two. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
The name says it all, actually better than ok. The bathrooms are very dated but clean. The location is convenient and it has really large, pull through sites. Great overnight park for value. Host was very nice. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Stopped into OK RV Park traveling cross country. There were many open sites as we were passing through in the off season. The park manager was very helpful. She guided us through our site and chatted with us while we hooked up. The park was very clean and quiet. We enjoyed our overnight and would return again if we're passing through the area. The one item that concerned me was how close sites are together. During the busy season I think it might be "close quarters" for guests. I always like larger sites for a little privacy. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
As other reviewers have said, this park is basically a dirt parking lot with hook-ups. However, I don't know who the rude person was who one reviewer dealt with, because the woman in the office when we arrived was extremely helpful and very nice. It's also nice to have an RV repair facility at the back of the park - we had our oil changed right at our site before we left in the morning. We also went to Mesa Italiano for dinner, but we thought the food was way overpriced for a small-town restaurant. We might stay there again if we were in the area. BTW, don't miss the Petrified Forest and the Painted Desert - they're awesome! We camped here in a Motorhome.
Rate above is with GoodSam discount. Rather plain park with four long rows of long RV spaces. Interesting arrangement in that if space 15 noses in from the south then 16 noses in from the north. If the park is full, you might be "utility side to utility side" with another RV. Early in the morning the internet measured 6 MB down and 1.5 MB up. Park TV was supplied by Cable One. Channel selection was excellent. Multiple sewer inputs for each site a great idea. For an over night stop, I'll be back. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Adequate for an overnight or two. The sites are very long and fairly level, but all gravel. There is a concrete pad with a table at nearly each site. The office staff was very nice. No amenities. Just a pick flat gravel lot with decent power, water and sewer. Cable worked very well. One nice feature was many sewer holes in a row next to your site, so you never need a long sewer hose. The best thing about this park was the restaurant up the street called Mesa Italian Restaurant. Excellent food and service at a good price. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We stayed at this park for two nights and I will never come back. The sites are dirt, long and narrow fairly level. The staff is extremely rude, unhelpful and not at all knowledgeable about their campground. The electric was very old and the cable is a joke, very fuzzy and only some of the cable hookups work. Water pressure is very high and needs only to be turned on a half a turn...oh and it leaks very badly. Would have considered returning in the future if not for the staff. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Stayed three days here. Owners and staff where great and very helpful in all ways. Thanks to staff for all her help. The park is all gravel and level. I did not have to level but did see some other rigs that had to be leveled. Each site has a large concrete pad. I was lucky and got one of the few sites with a good shade tree. The restroom and shower house is old and was always clean. Great place to stay to visit the Petrified Forest and the White Mountains. All utilities worked well and Wi-Fi worked well. I would stay again. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This campground is conveniently located off I-40. I would describe it as a very plain campground. Much like a parking lot with hookups. They have pull thru sites with level concrete pads, Great for those who don't want to unhook their toads. Their pedestal box looks beat and doesn't have breakers but instead has them nearby in a locked box. I connected to their electric and everything was fine until 10 pm when everything shut off. I tested the pedestal and got zero volts. In the morning the breaker was re-set and I did get 121.5 volts. Couldn't get power to my coach. I stopped for repairs and found the transfer switch was zapped. The tech said you were hit by a power surge. The bottom line is I wouldn't recommend using their electric without a surge protector. We camped here in a Motorhome.
The good features of this park are that the sites are very long and will accommodate any length RV. The WiFi is that fastest that I have ever experienced in an RV park. There is no road noise and the train is very far away so the sound is not obtrusive. The bad features are that the sites are side by side and there is just barely room enough for a neighbor with his awning out. The parking area is mostly dirt so you drag it in every time you go into your RV. The wind is bad enough that we couldn't put out any kind of mat to cover the dirt. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We stayed here for 1 night on our way out of Arizona as there wasn’t much to choose from in this area. The interior roads and site pads are gravel/dirt. The sites are narrow but long with a minor slope. It was pretty much just a parking lot. As long as your neighbor pulled to the end of their site, there was a little room between the next RV. But if RVs are parked adjacent to each other there wasn’t much room. The sites were long enough to keep the toad attached so no need to unhook. They have FHU (water, sewer & electric - 50/30/20 AMP). They charge depending on the electrical service you want - $5.00 extra/day for 50 AMP service. The utility connections are about in the middle to the end of the sites. There weren’t many trees so there was no encroachment and a clear view to the Southern sky for satellite reception. They provide complimentary WiFi which was password protected. The pet area was along the outer edges of the park. It was sand/dirt. They do provide waste collection bags. Although they have a leash law, some of the residents didn’t adhere to it. There are dumpsters around the park to dispose of waste if you’re walking your dog on the interior roads. Not much area to walk dogs outside of the park as the adjacent roads are somewhat rural without shoulders or sidewalks. There were common restroom/shower buildings located around the park. Access was controlled. Didn’t use the facilities so can’t comment on the cleanliness of them. The staff was friendly and helpful. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Old but clean parking lot style RV park. The entrance and exit roads are shared with an adjacent mobile home park. 50 Amp is available for $5 more. Sites are narrow but come with an aged, cracked cement pad. Electric pedestals are old and appear kinda of iffy as we needed assistance locating the breaker switch, located at another pedestal. This is an OK, no frills one night place. Price included 30 amp, Good Sam discount + Tax. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Just to be clear, this is not a resort park. But it is quite adequate for an overnight or 2 night stay. No grass, small trees, no shade, hard packed gravel sites that are level. This type of park is somewhat normal for parks in the southwest that are located on major interstates that cater to the travelers. Free coffee and muffins in the morning. Friendly park staff and reasonable rate for full hook-ups. We stayed here 2 nights and would return again. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
There isn't much to recommend this park. No grass, no trees, very narrow pull through sites. Not a place one would choose for any reason other than you are passing through the area and need a place to stay for the night. It is quiet - far enough from the highway that you don't hear it. Easy on/off Hwy 40. It is very dark. There is no designated dog area. The "dog walk" is a dirt and gravel road. I would not choose this park again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
A plain, parking-lot style campground along I-40 serves the traveler admirably. It is close to the Freeway exit, easy in and out, not too noisy, good WI-Fi and cable. The staff is friendly and CG is clean, neat, and well organized. Multiple sewer and cable hook-ups by each site. Long, if somewhat narrow pull-through sites, but they stagger occupants when they can. All gravel and very flat. Could be dusty at times. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
At first glance the park's layout seems odd, but it works fine and there are multiple hookups at each site, very helpful for sewer connection. On most sites, when freezing temps are expected at night, water is turned off in the evening and back on in the morning. It's an older facility with dirt pads and concrete patios. The restrooms were clean but could use newer fixtures and some paint. Wi-fi worked well, and the staff/hosts were very friendly and helpful. This was our second visit, and we will stop there again. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Good Sam rate shown. Easy in/out, on/off highway. Easy pull through, good utilities. Level sites. Great Wi-Fi. High priced but in cold weather, we wanted to plug in. Sites are very close/tight so if it were full/busy that would be annoying. Would be very dusty if there was wind. Not bad for a night or two if you are OK with the price. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This park was fine for an overnight visit, but it is not a destination park in my opinion. The manager was very friendly and took great care to place us in a spot where we could get maximum shade from the hot afternoon sun and wind, which we greatly appreciated. All sites have concrete patios, the site was level, but it is definitely a parking lot atmosphere. We did not use the washrooms or showers. The park is laid out with a public street running through it which was not an issue for us but might be for a family with small children. No real traffic noise, being far enough away from I-40. It was fine for an overnight stop. We would probably stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Large level gravel sites with concrete patio. All hookups are at good locations. Bathrooms are very clean. Good free Wi-Fi. Free coffee and muffin in morning. Great for a one night stop along the road. We stopped after driving through the Painted Desert/Petrified Forest. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This park was clean and well kept. It was a big gravel area with full hook ups and all pull throughs. I liked that because, even though there was space, they didn't stack us on top of each other. The best part was the hottest shower I've had on the road in almost 3 weeks. For overnight camping I would definitely stay here again. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Just needed something overnight. This was ok, but public roads run through it and I did not feel it was a very safe place. Otherwise, it was just a big parking lot with a few trees here and there and good enough for overnight. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Sites were sparse but level with good utilities. We would stop here again. Although the rate is a little high for just stopping for the night, it is offset by the free Wi-Fi and cable TV. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We camped at this park one night passing through. I made my reservation several months ago and when we checked in, everything was just as they had promised. The lady in the office was extremely nice and helpful. The park was clean and they had a nice display of petrified wood outside of the office. Everything was just as described on their website. This is a good overnight place to stay. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Site were level and ground was hard with no boards The sites were plenty long but a little close together. We used it to go to the Painted Desert and the Petrified Forest. It worked well. We were only in the park for evenings. Bathrooms were okay but the drains for the showers were in a awkward position. The offer free muffins and coffee every morning. Site access & park roads were very good. We didn't try the internet. Well off the road and a quiet park and pretty dark at night. The park was well maintained and the office folks were friendly. We camped here in a Motorhome.
The one word that can be used to describe this park is "tired". But then again the whole town of Holbrook is tired. That being said this park is great for an overnight stay. The sites are large and level. You share a power pole with the next rig but the sites are very long so you do not have to look into the neighbor's windows. Would stay here again for a night or two. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Great overnight stop or visiting Petrified Forest-Painted Desert Natl Park 11 miles away. Plenty of fuel and food places within walking distance. Dog Friendly but stickers in dog walk area. Plenty of room for big rigs. Will stop again. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Stayed in park one night. The park is mostly gravel and dirt. The 50 amp sites are side by side. We were parked one site away from our neighbors and the park indicated they tried to separate the units. There was no 'good' place to walk the dog. We were told to 'walk him anywhere' which was the road or other empty sites. We likely will not return. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Easy on off to highway and quiet for as close the park is to road activity. Clean! Easy pull in pull out. Cool collection of petrified wood by the office worth taking time to see the amazing pieces. I would stay here again. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This is a great campground to go see Petrified Forest and the Painted Desert (visit parks from the south entrance on 180). Lady at the check-in made us feel welcome, very friendly atmosphere. All sites are pull through, and each site has multiple sewer connection options (no need for long hose). Everything was clean. Holbrook is a small friendly town with a great Safeway grocery. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
I found this campground on this site. It's old but okay for a couple of days to see the NP and especially the Painted Desert. The staff is very friendly and helpful. The sites are actually long enough for two long rigs. The town is nearby for shopping and other sights to see. Restrooms and showers were exceptionally clean. Laundromat has eight washers and six dryers and is reasonably priced. I used my Good Sam card for this price. I'd stay here again, if ever in the area. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Good no frills park for being in the desert. They say they charge a slight premium for 50 amp service, but the front office never charged us. Quiet location (however next to a mobile home park in which some of the tenants would walk through the RV park) about a mile off of I-40 and easy to get into and navigate into our spot. Staff was friendly and offered free coffee and muffins in the mornings. WiFi was spotty. All spots were long and staggered so you weren’t on top of each other. Spots were all gravel and pretty level. In fact the entire campground is gravel including the pet walk areas. Again, being in a desert environment our dogs had to adjust doing their business in dirt and rock which they did after some prodding. Their free cable worked excellent and they actually have 50’ cables attached to the power boxes (you will get no antenna reception here). You just hook it up to your rig. Bathhouses were clean and water pressure in the roomy shower was good. Overall I would stay here again. We camped here for 2 nights. We camped here in a Motorhome.
The rate reflects GS and 50amp charge. Hookups were excellent, multiple sewer connections per site make it where you are always close. Cable was poor; WiFi was Ok,not great. Every site is very level. People in office were very nice. The park is one entire gravel pad but an effort was made to improve the sites by planting trees. If park was full, sites would be very close, but the office staff tries to rent every other site thereby giving everyone extra room. Not a destination, but good overnight. Our dogs missed the lack of grass. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Rate total with GS discount, for a two night stay. Most here for overnight only. ALL pull through sites, made it nice. Off season right now, but it could get congested as if they were crowded, one cement pad has 2 picnic tables. But sharing is good, right? Strong WiFi. Walking distance to local fast food, grocery store, dollar store, parts store, etc. In about 4 years, trees will be mature and this place could rate higher. Restrooms/showers fine. Snacks in office along with free coffee/muffins. Fair valued park. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Easy access off I-40 at Exit 286. Across the road from a McDonalds and a Mexican restaurant. The small town of Holbrook (on historic Rte 66) is 2 miles away and has a Safeway grocery store. This is an open campground with EWS (electricity, water, sewer) sites that are level and on a gravel surface. The $27.50 fee is for 30A with Good Sam discount. If you are in Holbrook to visit the Petrified Forest National Park. I would suggest using the south entrance to the park along Hwy 180 and exiting at the north entrance on I-40 so as to experience the effects of the afternoon sun in the painted desert. The campground gives free coupons for a piece of petrified wood from a local retailer. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Large parking lot style with rather narrow but long sites separated by cement pads and a picnic table. Small trees planted by sites but no real privacy. Several sewer connections made hook up easy Driveway is level with gravel surface. Free cable worked well. Wi-Fi only worked for the first evening even though signal appeared moderately strong. The office lady was very friendly and helpful. We paid about $27 with Good Sam discount. All sites were pull through with amble road space for access. The campground was very quiet with occasional train horns in the distance. We would definitely stay here again. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Dirt and gravel, muddy by trees. NOT level. Asked if level and was told yes. Rates different than listed on website. Additional $5 for 50 amp. Tall electrical boxes, was difficult to position for slides. No water from 7:30pm to 10:30am and no discount for not having water. Not friendly, spouted off rules like they were expecting problems. Would not go back, there are plenty of other RV facilities around. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
We enjoyed a very quiet New Year's Eve in this park and found it to be a place we'd gladly return to another time. Friendly folks in the office. Ratings indicate shade sites not available. Lots of trees, just not tall enough yet to offer much shade. Pull through sites are long and wide enough for the biggest rig and there will still be room left over. Park was easy to navigate, with sites clearly marked. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We spent one night. The sites are very long. If all the sites were filled, there would not be a lot of room between sites. Each site has a cement strip with a picnic table that is shared with the site next door. They turn off the water when the temperature is below freezing so we did not have water from 7 pm to 9 am the next day. Friendly staff and clean restrooms and showers. Very easy to get in and out of the site. Open fields behind the campground for walking the dogs. Had a sign that they do not allow RVs that are over 15 years old. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
There are very helpful, and friendly staff. The park is basically a large gravel parking lot, with LONG pull through sites. The utilities worked well, with fast free wi-fi at site, and a large clean laundry. It is central to both entrances to Petrified forest. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This was a very nice park with very long and wide pull-through sites. Good Wi-Fi, cable TV, very nice laundry room and friendly staff. The only negative; the traffic from the mobile home park adjacent to this park entered and exited through the RV park and the residence seemed to drive very fast. We stayed 3 nights and would stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We stayed here instead of the KOA to save $5-10 on a one night stay. In warmer weather and in season we would have probably stayed at the KOA for the pool. This park has side-by-side, FHU, pull-through sites. Most sites are satellite friendly. The sites are long but a bit close together. The laundry and bath buildings are old but clean and serviceable. There is a club house but I did not see anything for kids (playground, pool, etc.) As at a previous park we were unable to connect to the WI-FI in the evening but were able to do so in the morning. There are a few fast food places within a 10 minute walk. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is a quirky little park, which is adjacent to a mobile home area. The pull through sites are extremely long and ours was very level. The Wi-Fi, cable, and utilities were very good. The staff was friendly. We did not check out the bathrooms/showers. You could hear the train from this park, but it was not loud enough to keep me up at night. My only complaint was the traffic that entered and exited from the mobile home area at what I deemed to be a high rate of speed. This park is appropriately named, as it is "OK" for a one or two night stay while visiting the petrified forest and other local sites. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is a big, quiet park with extra long sites and a friendly staff. It wasn't very busy during our stay so seemed particularly spacious, but it might be tighter when crowded. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Very nice CG for a stop over or a couple of nights. Easy access from I-40. Just far enough from I-40 so that the traffic is a humm. Ditto for the train tracks. Actually the train whistle was sort of romantic. We asked for a pull through so that we would not have to unhook. Our site was over 100' long with multiple sewer and water hookups. Strong Wi-Fi, water pressure and electricity was dependable. We would strongly recommend this for a stop over. Yes, it is gravel (but aren't most?) but it is well packed so dust is but a minor problem. If in the area, we will be back. Did I mention that Pizza Hut delivers? We camped here in a Motorhome.
This park is clean and quiet. The staff is friendly and helpful. The WiFi worked fine. The only downside was that it's all rock or gravel. I tried to walk my dogs on the perimeter where there were some plants, but they got full of sand-spurs. I would stay there again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
The Park is easy to find and has paved roads and very long gravel pull through sites with a cement slab next to it. The trees are small and not good for shade. There is a clubhouse. We were parked on the last road, the "doggie" area. You can walk the dogs along the back of the park, their dog walk. It was okay to walk them on the road too. Very plain, but for a overnight stop it was okay. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
This park is fine for an overnight stay. Long sites, all gravel, no shade, and it's VERY windy in this part of the world. The bath/shower was older, but clean. Didn't get wi-fi password at check-in and office was closed when we got back from dinner, so didn't get to use it. Convenient to I-40. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
This is a very clean park with long, level gravel sites. Entrance and exit are easy: a great choice for overnight or when touring the area. Staff is friendly. There is an interesting petrified wood display near the office. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Easy access from Route 40 and well marked. Easy in and out for big rigs. Very dusty and open. Friendly people in the office. It is $5 extra for 50 amp service. Good for a night while passing through. We did not use the bathrooms or showers but used the laundry and found it nice and clean. Be careful buying fuel in the area as prices are all over the place. $4.69 near the RV Park and $4.03 less than a mile down the road. We would stay again if passing through. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
You will not find a harder working or friendly owner/manager than here! This is a large park will all level gravel sites. Shade is sparse. Even the largest RVs are easily accommodated. Clean and well maintained. This is really an overnight or two stop. We used it to visit the nearby Petrified Forest. It makes a perfect loop trip. Would stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Rate is Good Sam discount. Clean, well laid out. Wide, gravel sites with concrete patios. Host is friendly and helpful. Muffins and coffee for breakfast provided. Stayed one night, would stay again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Just off Historic Route 66, this park has long, narrow, level, gravel pull-throughs with sewer access every few feet. Water and power was good. They have cable TV, WiFi, a bathhouse, and laundry, although we used none of them. Verizon worked fine. Our only complaint is the designated dog-walking area is really dark and not as well-policed as it should be. Not a destination park, but a for a couple nights, this is a good location to visit the Petrified Forest National Park and see Holbrook’s iconic roadside architecture, including the restored Wigwam motel. Don’t miss Mesa Italiana, a fabulous Italian restaurant, about a mile northeast. We camped here in a Motorhome.
The person on duty at this park, was extremely helpful, accommodating and friendly. I would have given a 10 rating if there were not a lot of goatheads (the stickers that get into dogs' feet) in the dog walking area. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
As others have said, this is a nice place,with very level sites, and a nice lady in the office. The WiFi worked extremely well. There were lots of channels on the TV. The bathrooms and showers were clean. Laundry is $1.50 to wash & dry. It is a good overnight stop. $25 price was the Good Sam rate. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Easy well marked access off the hwy. Friendly and helpful staff. Paved interior roads with gavel sites with a picnic table at each site. Sites are close but they make an effort to put a space between rigs. Utilities are accessible and all worked properly. Multiple hook ups at each site and a coax cable is supplied for the TV cable. Level sites and close to stores and restaurants. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Probably the longest and most level sites we have had. Our 36' 5er and our F-350 fit easily. Sites are real close together but they don't put you side by side unless they are full. A very basic park probably best for overnight or short stays. Free WiFi. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This is a nice wide open park with long, level and easy in and out pull throughs. Most were side by side. WiFi works better when fewer people are using it. It was quiet at night. They serve fresh muffins in the morning. Just what we needed for an overnight stop. We camped here in a Motorhome.
First thing, this has to be the most level spots I have seen yet, off the hitch the trailer was dead level without blocks or anything. Very basic park, clean restrooms and laundry. Laundry is a bit expensive, but the machines are very well maintained. There is nothing for kids here besides the petrified wood display to climb around on. The sites are huge (could park my quad cab F-250 in front or behind the 38' trailer). Sites are right on top of each other, however they do a good job of keeping everyone spread out. The hookups are interesting, they have two shore powers and two water points (both heated for cold nights) and about 6 sewer drains on each site. Park owner is very friendly and knowledgeable about the area and attractions. Free coffee and muffins in the morning at the office. Store is basic and everything in Holbrook is expensive compared to other towns. Will stay here again if we are in the area. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
The OK RV park is OK. A convenient stop, but certainly not a "destination" park. Fine for a couple of nights to see nearby attractions. A gravel parking lot with long, narrow sites. All utilities and Wi-Fi at site work well. You will have a close neighbor at busy times, but when we were here they were parking every other site, so plenty of room. Walking distance to McDonalds for breakfast. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Nice quiet campground well off I-40 but still conveniently located. Front office staff was very friendly with nice selection of odds and ends you may need, plus they serve complimentary muffins and coffee each morning. If you are looking for an EXCELLENT dinner, be sure to ask for directions to Bubba's Big Pig Bar-Ba-Que, you will not be disappointed. Also, be sure to check out downtown Holbrook if you want to see how Route 66 must have been back in it's heyday. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We arrived at this park without a reservation and got a perfect site without tree obstructions for our satellite TV, although we could have used their cable TV if we had to. We needed a spot that would accommodate our 60 foot length and this site could have handled a 90 foot rig. The pads (dirt) were level. This is a great overnight park. Don't know if we would want to spend a lot of time here due to closeness of the sites to each other. There are a lot of trees, and some sites would have shade in the afternoon if you wanted shade. The staff was courteous and efficient. Took me less than 5 minutes to check in. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is one the few campgrounds that has learned the art of speedy check-in. A nice compact park. Nice large sites. Very convenient, multiple sewer dump receptacles at every site. This is a nice touch. You must ask how to find Bubba's Bar B. Que. Enjoy. Take a camera as you drive past the Wigwam Motel, the historic place where you can sleep in a wigwam. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Pull through sites have two hook ups and rows alternate even/odd, so that your entry faces your neighbors. You share a concrete slab with 2 tables on it with your neighbor. We were told to try to stay at one end for privacy, however our neighbor didn't do the same. Their 5th wheel was parked in the middle with their truck parked behind them. They had the table closest to them loaded down with stuff and came out as I was fixing breakfast and sat at the table closest to us. More or less forcing us to stay in side. Ok in a pinch but probably won't stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
A windy, dusty park when we stayed here. The manager was exceptionally helpful, giving us a site so our fifth-wheel door didn't open into the wind! I thought that was especially helpful. Very clean, spacious laundry facilities. The sites are very narrow (about 17 feet) with trees at the edge of most sites so we had to be especially careful bending ourselves into the site but the manager was there to help us. It was an adequate park for the two nights we stayed here. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Clean open campground with small shade trees. Has friendly staff. Has lots of space between campsites and each has a concrete slab and new picnic table. There are extra-long campsites for pull-throughs with two hook-ups at each site. WiFi worked fantastically fast! This is a great place for one or two nights. Will stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
A very easy park to maneuver. Sites are narrow but very long, with connections at both ends and multiple sewer hook ups. Sites are gravel. The lady at the front desk was efficient and friendly. Showers were roomy, with a large dressing area. There was a nice laundry, although we did not use it. The park was quiet. Units were spaced out since it was not very full. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
We stayed here for 2 nights several years ago, so while passing through again, we were happy to be able to stay here again. It's a no frills park, but very nice for a night or two. I was surprised to read the review saying the sites were narrow because we find them the opposite. There is plenty of room to get in and out and not be on top of your neighbor. The Cable is good and so is the wi-fi at our site. We did not use the restrooms or laundry. The staff were friendly, and we were advised there would be coffee and muffins in the morning. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
We chose this park as a base to visit the Petrified Forest and Painted Desert. The park is quiet, spacious and nicely maintained. The sites are all pull-throughs which we felt were plenty big. The laundry is large and inexpensive. The showers are also large and though dated, are very clean. The new owner says he is working hard to not only improve the RV park, but the adjacent mobile-home park, which we did not feel threatened by in the least, like someone else reported in a previous rating. The staff went out of their way to make us welcome and we would definitely return. They accept Good Sam, AAA or KOA discounts. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We selected this campground because it was cheaper than the nearby KOA. We were glad we made the choice. Yes this a a strange campground--set up for mobiles. Lots are long and narrow but there are hook ups at each end which allows you to avoid being too close to the guy next door. You do share a patio and picnic table with your neighbor but these aren't things we generally use. This park has the best rest rooms and the best showers I have ever seen at a campground. People who normally shower in their rigs were taking advantage of them. We used this campground while visiting the Painted Dessert, Petrified Forest and Canyon de Chelly. It's 100 miles to Canyon de Chelly. There is a free National Forest Campground, a motel and cafe at the Canyon visitors area. The free campground is very nice and rigs up to 30 feet should be able to find a place. We didn't know that until we drove up there. If we had known this we probably we probably would have cut our stay at OK RV Park by a day to have avoided the 200 mile commute. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Easy on/off I-40 and makes a good overnight stop. Very long pull through sites. We travel with our dogs, and grassy areas to walk them were extremely limited. We would stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
A good overnight spot. The restrooms and showers were clean, had good cable TV. WiFi was available but we did not use. There's some RR noise, but that's true anywhere along hwy 40, Route 66. We camped here in a Tent Trailer.
Most of the previous reports sum it up pretty good. Sites are super narrow. I had to juggle around to be able to open both living room slides. The WiFi is the strong point of the park. Not much else good to say. The park includes some pretty rough mobile homes on the north end. Went for a walk and I felt the need of something to have for protection. Dusty, dirty, unlevel, very old sites. Check in clerks were nice. Not any other decent place to stay here. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Always a good convenience stop and never any problems with services, campsites, utilities or staff. The sites are all level, easy pull-throughs, and the town of Holbrook is a cool place to visit on old Route 66. We have enjoyed excellent friendly service at all restaurants, stores and attractions in Holbrook and have been saved from disaster by Scotty's towing at a very reasonable price. Petrified Forest and Painted Desert are well worth the stop. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
A strange campground setup. Looks to be converted from a mobile home park. Sites very long and level. Also very narrow but it looks doubtful that enough campers would be here at one time to force the issue. Nice laundry. Had good AT&T and Verizon reception. Good for seeing Petrified Forest NP, Meteor Crater, etc. Not much else in town or around to do. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This was an interesting park. It had multiple sewer and water connections in the longest pull-through site that I have ever seen. Our site was a little narrow. The roads were paved and the site was dirt. The laundry was reasonable in cost and had several washers and dryers. Thankfully we arrived before the end of day when the over nighters started arriving. The line was about 5 or 6 RVs deep. Overall, I was pleased and would be happy to stay again. Man oh man, check out the petrified wood logs beside the office. They are wonderful. However, there is a whole forest of them nearby but it was neat seeing the logs. Free coffee and muffins in the office for breakfast. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We were very pleased with this campground. Almost level sites, clean and friendly. I would have given this campground a 10 if not for the very narrow sites. I have 3 wide slide outs and saw a potential for a problem should the campground be full. Otherwise, this campground is a great place to stay for a night or two. Its close to Interstate 40 and only about 23 miles to the petrified forest. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Price is Good Sam with the tax. Flat, large gravel sites with picnic tables, cable, fast wi-fi. Large, individual showers. Wasn't very crowded so we had lots of privacy. Free coffee and muffins in the morning. Road noise from I-40. We camped here in a Motorhome.
As other reviewers have remarked, the CG is old and the sites are "buddy" sites with very little room between sites. Luckily, there were not many guests there and were spread out. Since we had read some previous reviews, we were not too disappointed with the accommodations. The staff was friendly and suggested sites to see and directions on how to get there. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
It has easy access, and the restrooms are clean. The sites are narrow and side-by-side. That means absolutely no privacy. It is OK for overnight stay, not good for anything longer. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This is one of those "bless their hearts" situations. It's also an example of that line about putting lipstick on a pig. The lipstick: they have a nice little shop, the people are very friendly, the roads are very navigable, they have free cable (and they supply the cable), and they have free Wi-Fi, but, "bless their hearts." (And here's the pig.) It's an OLD park, and while the sites are long (100 feet), they are side by side and very narrow. The park is just outside a very run down mobile home park, so the "feel" of the place is poor. It's not bad for an overnight stop, and if you lower your expectations and not expect $33 worth of ambiance and facilities, you will not be too disappointed. We camped here in a Motorhome.
The Lady in the office was very friendly. The park was clean and easy to get around in. My only problem was she put us in one site and we had to change because my uni5 was bigger then she thought. After we moved it was fine except the sites are super close and you had to share the cement slab with your neighbor. It is good for a nights stay, but don't think I'd like to spend more then the one night. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
The name says it all. Easy in, easy out and all utilities worked, including Wi-Fi. Not fancy, but we will stay again if the timing is right. Did not use bathrooms or laundry. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This was a good, basic RV park. All amenities were available, but were very basic. It looks like an old drive-in movie theater parking lot. But, we did get our laundry done. The staff was very friendly and accommodating. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This was a decent park for a one night stay, but it was not fancy at all. The staff was friendly but the park itself appeared to be not much more than a gravel parking lot. The WI-FI worked and the cable TV was OK. The park had several long time permanent residents. I doubt if I would stay there again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We have stayed here many times on way home. It is an easy off and on the freeway. The restrooms are very nice and clean. The office help always have been pleasant. It is not a fancy park, but it is handy and clean and large pull through sites. Yes, permanents in the back, but away from the overnighters. They do drive a bit fast through, but we have had a paved road, so at least no dust. And will stay here again. We didn't notice any train noise as a prior review stated. We camped here in a Motorhome.
It has long pull through sites, that are nice and level. Staff very nice, coffee, muffin and donut breakfast is provided. There is easy access to I-40, but it is also near busy train tracks. We used as an overnight stop. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We stayed here 2 nights while checking out the area. The sites are dirt and we are lucky no rain hit while we were here. The park has low rent mobiles at end of park. Although the speed limit is 15mph, people in the mobiles go through a lot faster. For the 2 days we were here, motorcycles ran at high speed up and down the roads. Has good cable TV and 50 amp if you need it. Be prepared to pay an extra $5.00 for it. They have some long termers on the back row. This is where the motorcycles are coming from. Definitely an overnight spot only. Office staff were friendly and helpful. Picnic benches are in need of repair and painting. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Ok is just that OK. Ok for a one night stop over. Sites are gravel/dirt and they have good utilitiy hook ups. The cable TV and Wi-Fi are good. We would stay with them again when going through the area. Nothing fancy but it's "OK." We camped here in a Motorhome.
Just stayed the one night in Holbrook, on our way to the Albuquerque Balloon Fest. Glad we made reservations here a day ahead of time, as they were booked full. Level, gravel sites, wifi, cable tv, restrooms & showers were a bit old but clean. They take credit cards now, staff was friendly. Could hear some trains in the distance but not very loud. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
As others have posted basically a big gravel parking lot, but long and level spaces. Good for an overnight stay and close to the Interstate. Trailer park shares the same road and a few "suspects" drove or walked by, but I'm probably just paranoid. Friendly staff with coffee in the morning. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Park is basically gravel parking lot, common in the desert, with huge pull through sites (100 ft + long) with small 25 ft trees at about half the sites. Side by side multiple hookups (each site has the choice of 2 or more utility connections with sewer drops about every 10 feet). They appear to use every other site, facing north to allow more spacing until they need the opposite direction sites which then gives one a close neighbor. WiFi, CTV, continental breakfast/coffee included & +$5 for 50 amp. Credit cards accepted. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This is a great, stone base, level, easy in and out, RV park. There are trees, but not grassy areas. Each site had a picnic table. The WiFi worked quite well. The staff was friendly, along with the coffee and muffins in the morning, we enjoyed our stay. The fact that this park is pet friendly made the choice an easy one about staying here. There is a mobile home park located behind the RV park, so there was some traffic, but not to any distraction. Located just behind a small strip mall with some fast food, and a small grocery store makes this a great overnight stop. It is just off of I-40 and the sign to the entrance is large and easy to see. We would stay there again when traveling the northwest portion of Arizona. We camped here in a Motorhome.
The park is located in a newer area of town. It was quiet here both during the day and also in the evening. Sites are good sized, include a concrete patio slab, and some sights have nice shade trees. Park is very well-maintained and clean. Employees were very friendly and helpful. I would return to this park. We spent a week here in May, 2007. There are several nice restaurants located within a mile. Easy access from Hwy. 40. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
A clue! Office would not accept a credit card! Cash or check only. Lady in the office did speak to me, but only when she was forced into it. Much vehicle traffic to & from Mobile home park behind the RV park. Showers & bathrooms were clean, but old. I would not stop here again. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
It's just an overnight with nothing extra. The staff is curt and unconcerned. The internal traffic is constant from the trailer park in the back. They do have the largest petrified wood logs I have ever seen by the office. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Gravel sites with concrete pads. Quite. Easy to find. Easy access to interstate. Good Sam discount. Plain Jane, square deal. Good place to overnight and do the laundry in the provided laundry mat. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
[ 5 / 10 ]
Park appeared to be either in process of deteriorating or being fixed up-couldn't tell for sure.
Office staff was unfriendly and unhelpful-when I was put in a spot where the 50 amp plug was in use she gave me two new site numbers & told me to go check them out.
Sites were gravel with concrete pad for picnic table. Sites were a little on the narrow side if one has slide-out. Park was clean, off I-40 a block and quiet. We camped here in a camper.
