The park is well off the main road and it is quiet. I can't understand the very high ratings previously posted, the campground is basically a dirt/gravel lot with a few small trees in the middle of the desert. No cable TV, no office, no staff to speak of, although a lady met us and just had us park and fill out a self registration envelope and put the money in it. Easy access for big rigs. Very basic with no nothing to offer, so if this is what you are looking for, this place is it. Three or four sites were long term, and besides ourselves and our traveling companions, the campground was empty. Would choose somewhere else next time. The rate was for Passport America.
This is a very nice newer park with a separate transient RV area and long term areas. The facilities and pool were very well maintained and the restrooms/showers/laundry were immaculate. Sites were a choice of asphalt pull through's or gravel back ins. Staff was excellent and escorted us to the site and helped backing in. There was no noise from the interstate, and cable TV and power were very good. Easy access for big rigs. We would stay here again. Rate was for Good Sam.
This park is marginal at the best. Other parks in the area are much better so research before committing to a park in Deming. Some long term, but they kept to themselves, and contrary to other reviews, the interstate and railroad noises were very noticable here. It is basically a gravel wide spot in the road with lots of weeds, dog droppings, and in general in need of some major clean-up. Office staff was very friendly, and recommended a nice steak house that we went to, but it was in the middle of nowhere about 15 miles from town and it looked like a converted barn or warehouse with no indication that it was even in business as a place to eat. We would not stay here again. The rate was for Good Sam.
Park is a nice place for a night or a week. Well kept and a very nice pool area. It has a separate game room building that is divided into an adult and children's areas, with pool tables, books, games, etc. The small cafe is open Friday through Sunday for breakfast and lunch and a dinner on Sunday night. Very good food, and very reasonable prices. One drawback was that we had a choice of either 50 amp/no sewer or 30 amp/sewer. Being in the desert and hot, we chose 50 amp/no sewer. The office staff was helpful, and we think that being Coast to Coast was the reason for the 30-50 amp choice as many empty sites had 50 amp/sewer. One drawback was that on the first day here, a guy came to the RV and talked us into a 2 hour sales pitch about joining Western Horizons. Very expensive plan, and after checking with the Better Business Bureau found it was rated an F. Close to Sedona for a short day trip, which was well worth the 30 minute drive. Not much in Camp Verde for entertainment or eating out. We paid the C2C rate. Would probably find another park if we were to come through here again.
As stated by previous reviewers, this park is basically all lava rock which is not good for people or dogs. Must wear shoes, rocks are about 2" diameter to smaller crushed rock on roadways. Staff was OK, and they were a little put out that we used a credit card, they wanted cash only. The park is about what would be expected for a desert park, and the sites were more than adequate for big rigs. The park dog wanders and just plops it anywhere he wants. So much for pick up after your dog! The major drawback was that the cable TV worked somewhat during the day, and at night the whole thing went fuzzy and impossible to see the picture. Not a good week here since the new shows were coming on and the wife could not even see a picture. The town of Williams is really interesting and there are some good places to see and also good food and fun. Would probably stay here again, if it was a shorter time, and the cable TV worked right. The rate was for Good Sam.
This is a brand new RV park. Good Sam discount. The owners are very friendly and helpful and they toured the park twice a day in their "Log Truck" to check on guests. This is a beautiful and very quiet park with lots of room between the sites. All sites are asphalt with grass between sites. Wild blackberry is everywhere and you just pick and eat. The giftshop has very high quality redwood gifts at very reasonable prices. The park is about mid-way on the Avenue of the Giants and there are many things to see in the area. I would have rated this park a "10" but there is no TV reception and no cable TV available. Cell phones do not work, no matter what carrier, so be prepared to be out of touch. In an emergency, they will let you use their land-line phone. Very pleased with everything else in the park. We stayed here in a 40 footer. We would definitely stay here again.
Campground is all asphalt and is fairly new. Grounds could use a little TLC, cable connections were missing, and weeds needed taking care of. RVers can use the hotel pool. When we were here, the road leading to the campground was under construction and was dirt and thick mud. Our 40-footer made it, but our friends behind us towing a 38-ft 5th wheel said we sunk into the mud about 6". Our rate was for the Escapees discount which the lady checking us in didn't know they offered. Overall- this is a nice campground for a short stay. Staff was very friendly and helpful. WARNING!! The 2 major camping books refer to Hwy 175 in their directions to this campground. From Hwy 101, DO NOT TAKE HWY 175. It is marked "Vehicles over 39' Prohibited". It should say "No RVs, Trailers, Semis, or anything over 30 ft Allowed" Being adventuresome, I figured 40' is only 1' over so we went for it. BAD Decision! Road is extremely narrow and has numerous switchbacks that a RV cannot make without taking both of the two lanes. Hitting the rock face on the side of the road with the rear of the RV is common. A nice highway patrolman told me that when he pulled me over for crossing the center line. Use Hwy 20 off of Hwy 101 to Hwy Hwy 29. It saves time and is three times faster than Hwy 175.
This is an older park, as many old RVs attest. One has spiderwebs all over it and it looks like it has been "in-place" for years. It is centrally located if you are going to SF or the Napa Valley. I-80 noise is noticeable but if you turn on your AC fan it helps mask the noise. Pull-through sites are adequate in length for a 40 footer but they are very narrow. Can't open slide and pull down window awnings without hitting neighbors slide. All gravel sites that are fairly level. One strange aspect of this park is that the office is only open from 9 AM to 12 PM and 2 PM to 5 PM. They have a board that lets you know what site you are in, but the bathrooms and laundry have codes to get in. If you get in late, you can only hope another RVer gives you the code. There is no dedicated pet area, only a small strip about 3' wide at the south end of the park for pets to use. Our rate was the weekly rate.
7th Ranch is a very nice place to stay and visit the Little Big Horn area. We just happened to be there during the Battle of Little Big Horn re-enactment which was very interesting. The park is layed out very well, and all sites offer a great view of the open ranges and mountains of Big Sky Country. The restrooms and showers were immaculate and showed the pride of the owners and the people working there. All were very friendly and helpful. And yes, they still gave free ice cream on check in. It was so good, we went back for more the following night. Big rigs are what this place was designed for. Very easy access in and out of the 70 foot long pull through sites. The only drawback, which is minor, is that the road to the camp is gravel and dirt for the last 3/4 mile. Toad and coach get a little dirty, but the excellent other qualities of this park outweigh that minor inconvenience. The town of Garryowen is a gas station, convenience store, and museum. Don't expect to find a Wal-Mart nearby.
Mountain View RV park is a nice park, and the owners are very friendly. The park is maintained very well, and projects to improve the grounds are in work. Lawns were very well manicured, the park is clean, and well run. Pull-throughs are available for big rigs and there are no problems getting in or out of the sites.
We stayed here for 4 nights and the campground is absolutely excellent. As other reviewers have said, this is truly a resort campground. We made reservations 2 months ahead of time as Coast To Coast members. When we arrived, we were put in "The Meadows" and found there were no sewer hook-up. We asked to be moved since we were going to be there 5 nights but we were told there were no full hook-up sites available. The lady said that as Coast To Coast members,(or RPI, Thousand Trails) we shouldn't expect full hook-ups but to check back to see if they had any cancellations. We checked nightly, and also counted and logged the empty sites. At the end of the fourth day, there were an average of 38 empty sites, 11 of them were empty the entire time we were there. We have pets, and only counted the empty sites in the "Pet Side" of the property. I felt that they were being untruthful as I had logged all available sites for four days, and we left one day early since we had to pack up to dump any way. Really nice place, but the attitude towards C2C was unacceptable. We will NOT stay here again, unless we do the $39.95 for 3 nights/4 days and sit through their sales pitch. I bet those people get sewer hook-ups!
This was a one night stop-over and for that it is OK. This park (?) has no office, only a small portable building that is not staffed. The sites are laid out in a semi-circle with a building in the middle that is home to a Popcorn Ball company. The owner came by about 8:30 PM to see if we came in and she was very friendly and explained that her and her husband owned a truck repair shop next door and they worked there during the day. Road had deep ruts and mud from recent rains. Rate was for Passport America.
This was a disappointment. The RV part of the hotel is either on weeds/dirt or asphalt parking lot and seemed to be an afterthought for RV use and not a planned RV park. We were assigned weed/gravel sites that would not accommodate big rigs and were about 30'long, and the access to the site was difficult for a big rig. Hard to stuff a 40' Motorhome in that one. We were told to go across the street on the asphalt parking lot where big trees coming out of the asphalt kind of marked the sites. The sites are narrow, and with slides out you are right on the line. Our friends were next to us in their 5th wheel with quad slides and they could not put out their awning on our side because of a big tree and our slide out. One good note is that you have the use of the indoor or outdoor pool and the other amenities at the hotel. With so many "real" RV parks in the Dells, we would not stay here again.
This park was a surprise to us. We did not expect such a nice park out in the country away from major attractions or towns. We had a hydraulic pump failure on the motorhome that put us behind schedule and this was on the faster route to get us on schedule again. Staff was excellent, they were there at 8:30 PM to check us in and the young lady was very helpful and friendly. The sites were level, easy to get in and out of, shaded (for the 1 hour of daylight we had left) and very adequate for a 40' motorhome and toad. We would stay here again, and were very happy with the overall condition of the park. It is clean, well kept, and is close to major shopping and fuel. Rate was for Passport America.
A very nice and clean park. Staff was friendly, sites are adequate for big rigs, and the sites are packed gravel. The only drawback to Grandma's is they are NOT pet friendly. Pets must be taken off the property to relieve themselves. Signs are everywhere advising not to let pets pee on the bushes or anywhere on the property and violators will be asked to leave immediately with no refund. Pain in the rear carrying dogs off property. Only stayed one night. Would stay here again, if I don't have my Pekingese! Hint: Park in first row if you have pets.
Very nice park for a short stay. Sites are mostly grass and are very adequate in width and length for a 40' motorhome. Staff is very friendly, and they were mowing when we came in. They stopped and came to our sites to mow them before we pulled in so they would be done. Would stay here again. Close to Wal-Mart, Home Depot, and a number of eating places just 3 miles north.
