A very pretty park that is very remote. The park is off State Road 3 approx 15 miles south of I-25, and 25 miles north of I-40. It's located alongside the burbling Pecos River. Don't trust your GPS - the road leading into the park is the north-most road in the village of Villaneuva, heading east. The GPS incorrectly showed the Park as being as being three miles south of town.
One of the nicer KOA's we've stopped at while traveling. The one detractor is that it is right next to US 84. Other than that, it's very well maintained, the staff is pleasant, and there are many trees - the place is full of them. There's an indoor heated pool and hot tub, and free wireless.
Location - yes, it's in the Grand Canyon, and conveniently located near the scenery. The staff was friendly, and as others have mentioned there are amenities nearby. (Free wireless in the Yavapai cafeteria!) If you want to stay in the park, it's the only game in town. However, I agree with others..the sites need work. Our site (L28) was very unlevel and the asphalt crumbling - this was true of every site and the roads I saw walking through the trailer park. The trailer park really needs more restrooms, and a shower. The sites are small and crammed together.
This is one of the nicest state parks we've visited, hands down. It is very well maintained, with a nice layout. We stayed in the Quail loop, site 8, with a great view of the Tuzigoot Ruins, Mingus Mtn, and Jerome. There are many hiking trails in the park, as well as fishing and horseback riding. The park is conveniently located near many local attractions, as well as Sedona and Oak Creek Canyon. If you stay here, be sure to stop at the Main Street Bistro at 202 Main Street, about a quarter mile to the left as you exit the park. We had a wonderful Pork Medallian and Shrimp Scampi dinner there.
Remote, no power or water (at the time we stayed). However, the site was peaceful, with a nice trail leading off to the canyon and the aroma of sage and pinon in the air. The camp host, Howard, was very friendly, as were his two dogs and cat "Monday".
