This is one of the best parks in AZ. Roads are paved, sites are concrete and level. The park is very well maintained - the gravel between sites is raked everyday. There is a very good pet run and a great path through the desert to walk your dog. There is a little road noise but the convenient access from the highway and shuttle to the casino easily offsets the noise. The showers are clean and private (large enough for 2). Pool is nice. They also have multiple events and pot luck dinners during the month. Definitely will stay here again. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
I simply do not give out 10s but this is as close to one as I can get. The place is spotless, the staff is great, etc - what more can I say. We have been here many times - use it for our first night out, last couple of nights coming home - best laundry we have ever seen in now 168 parks we have stayed in, and for when we want to spend time up there for Sedona, etc. Highly recommend. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Paid $18 with Passport America rate for 1 night only. Very nice park with a nice pool, hot tub, large patio, and large kitchen, I'm guessing for groups. All sites do not have tables but large sites and paved. The whole park slopes a little downhill but not too much that it affects getting your rig level with a few blocks. Very nice showers. I will stay here again We camped here in a Motorhome.
This site is one of Good Sam's top 100 sites. It probably does get 10/10/10 on their scale, but it lacks character and atmosphere. It sits on the side of Interstate 17, with some sites as close as 20 uninterrupted yards to the highway; the traffic noise is obvious. Most sites have no views. Our site had one of the few small areas of grass in front of it, but looked over a construction storage site. The location is poor. You are over 20 miles to Sedona, and apart from the local casino 400 yards away, you are 3-4 miles from Camp Verde, which consists of a small number of local businesses and a handful of restaurants. You can understand why this is simply a stopover site. Accepts Good Sam and one night Passport America at $21. We camped here in a Motorhome.
The rate reflects Passport America. We have stayed here several times. All the sites are concrete and the roads are asphalt. The electric is dependable, even on the hot day that we were there. You will be hard pressed to find a better park! We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is one of our favourite campsites. The rate reflects for this stay a summer special discount. Once again the sites are clean and well maintained as are the pool and spa area. Very helpful friendly staff. As ever our only minus point is that the Internet is very flaky/poor but we really do recommend this campsite and will certainly stay here again. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This is a nicely manicured park with concrete slabs and pull-thrus (which cost extra). Lots of stuff was broken when we were here. The phones and WiFi were down, the hot tub was broken, the pool was too cold to swim in, but they still want a fortune to stay here, in the middle of nowhere. If you are visiting the casino, there is a free shuttle. Best attraction in the area is Fossil Creek. The check-in is excruciating. Took over 20 minutes even with no one ahead of us. They ask for way too much unnecessary personal information and hand type it in. Next time, we will simply stay in the casino lot next door for free than pay these prices. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We had first stopped at a neighboring campground that was full, so decided to stop at Distant Drums to see if they had availability, and they did. This is a beautifully manicured park with concrete sites that are level, and with full hook-ups. The sites are arranged such that not all of them are side by side. Access to the park is easy. The ladies working in the office were pleasant, but it appeared they were new at working there. There was an escort to the site. There was a nice laundry room, although several of the machines were out of order. The showers/bathrooms appeared clean. There is a fenced dog run. The only downside to the park is that the park wifi is practically non-existent, but we were told that at the time we registered. Wifi seemed to work well if you sat in the office. This park offers both Passport America and Good Sam discounts; however, there are many restrictions with the Passport America discount (no discounts in April). If you want to receive the Passport America discount, it's best to check the Passport America site to see when it can be used at this park, as it's very limited. We would stay here again if passing through the area. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is a very nice RV Park. The only ding is there is moderate road noise. On a scale of 1-10 with 10 being lots of noise, to me this was a 4. The Wi-Fi here as we have come to expect on this most recent trip is pretty useless. We did get a pretty good Verizon 4G signal so used that instead. This park is all paved, medium sized spaces, friendly staff, very nice dog run area, pool, hot tub, and some additional facilities. It is close to the freeway, but as already stated, not too bad noise. You are close to both Cottonwood-Jerome and Sedona. But not right next to Sedona. So expect a 45 minute drive there. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This campground is a beautifully laid out RV park, rates a 10 for design and plantings, plus the red gravel. I thought the staff was very friendly, and as a previous reviewer mentioned there are helpers all over cleaning, directing and answering questions. We saw a rattler when we walked back from the hot tub in the evening so taking a flashlight is recommended! We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
As other reviews have reported, this is a very nicely equipped, maintained and (desert) landscaped park, with generously sized sites and friendly, helpful, mostly working-camper staff. There is some freeway noise, and, if your space is near the busy adjacent county road, the frequent rumble of traffic speeding over a cattle guard. The open desert lies just across that road, however, with superb dog walking, hiking and four-wheel-driving opportunities. Water pressure in the park fluctuates between very low to quite high. There are only six washer and dryer sets, one of which was not working during our stay, inadequate for a park of this size. There is a daily, unremarkable buffet at the affiliated casino, just across the freeway, with a free on-call shuttle. BUT, if internet access is important to you, find somewhere else. The park wi-fi is excruciatingly slow, when it works at all. Ditto for Verizon Wireless. So prepare to be functionally off-net for much of the time. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is an easy park to get to off of the Interstate. There is good signage and a large parking area for registration. The park offers pull-in sites along the perimeter, some of which offer a spectacular view of the Verde Valley. They also have back-in sites and some pull-throughs. Park roads are paved and wide; however, a few sites are challenging to enter or exit. Sites are paved with a narrow, paved patio area and a picnic table. Some sites appeared to have too much of a slope. The park is immaculate and the gravel around each pad is raked when campers depart. The utilities were in the perfect location for our rig. There are pleasant plantings throughout the park and they have a nice-sized dog park. The park is covered in pea gravel, so they aren't struggling with trying to maintain grass. They have buried some large posts (railroad ties) to encourage male dogs to mark that area! They have a motion- activated lamp on a post, but a flashlight would still be welcome at night. Free WiFi is provided for one computer, but it was terribly slow. Cable is also free. We look forward to an opportunity to stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Rate is based on weekly rate. This is an excellent park with friendly staff. My husband used the showers and rated them terrific. They are very large individual private bathrooms. I did laundry and it was also very clean. My only complaint was needing to purchase cards to use in the washer/dryer. I had to wait about 10 minutes while they finished with the customers they were helping. Coin operated would be more helpful. If doing laundry get you card at check-in. This is an excellent location to visit all the area has to offer. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We have stayed here many times before, and loved it, but were a bit disappointed this time. Toilets and showers were not very clean, and staff spent a lot of time standing outside the main office door smoking and drinking coffee. Site was level and plenty of room, with good hookups. We shall probably go somewhere different next time. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We've stayed here several times on the way to southern Arizona. Park is owned by the Yavapi-Apache Nation. It is one of the nicest and cleanest parks we've stayed in. Our main complaint was, as others have said, that some of the pads were very out of level. This requires the MH front wheels to be off the ground, or lots of lumber under the wheels of trailers/fivers. They have repoured or are currently fixing those pads! The biggest complaint is that they will only allow one WiFi connection per site and signal is very unreliable. ATT signal in the park is likewise unreliable, but that is not their fault. Work campers/staff were friendly and helpful. See you again next year. We camped here in a Motorhome.
One of the nicest RV parks we've stayed at in Arizona. Extremely friendly and helpful staff. Park is immaculate with freshly raked gravel and lovely landscaping with concrete pads for RVs. We were able to pull a 41' RV with tow vehicle attached through the site. No need to unhook vehicle because the Cliff Castle Casino had shuttle buses to transport you to/from the casino. We were given vouchers for $20 to gamble and discounts for $2 off the $15 Prime Rib Buffet. Pool was clean as was dog run area. Very nice. Will definitely stay again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We have stayed here 4 times and each time we have been very happy. The showers/bathrooms are immaculately clean. The park itself is maintained every day. They have a pretty small pool with a spa. All of the facilities work very well. Can't comment on the wifi since we didn't use it. We have our own. The sunsets are magnificent and can be see from anywhere in the park. The staff is very nice and we have made some friends during our stays. All of the staff is comprised of Workcampers. The only person, to my knowledge, that is paid is the GM. Everyone works hard to make your stay pleasant. The park is close to Sedona and the Red Rock country. Our rate is based on a monthly rate. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Excellent RV park! Immaculate. Casino and RV fun nearby. Pool and hot tub in excellent condition. Park looks brand new. We stayed in a 40' motor home with slides out and had room to park our SUV on lot. Small grassed in areas and picnic tables on every lot. Sunset views from site were gorgeous. BBQ grills available for use up at clubhouse on patio facing mountain view/sunset. We stayed for two days while doing site seeing in the area. I also highly recommend taking a ride in the Rhino or ATV with the Arizona Offroad Tours (myarizonaoffroadtour.com) it came recommended by the Campground and we had an awesome time riding around the hills and taking in breath taking views. My kids are 3 and 5 and they smiled the whole 3 hours giggling and just having a blast. Two thumbs up for Mary & Cathy our local tour guides! We camped here in a Motorhome.
Great place. Our concrete pad was level and we had full hookups. Host guides you in. My husband used the pool, spa, showers, and said they were great. Everything is very clean and well maintained. Wi-Fi was fine. Shuttle to Casino and restaurants was wonderful. Best place we have stayed at in 2 months. Did not want to unhook so we had a pull though. Staff was very friendly and helpful. Nice fenced dog run. Easy off and on. Will come back again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is a clean, well maintained, and very nicely manicured RV Park. The facilities are spotless, the pool area is well maintained and enjoyable, and the hot tub is large in size compared to most. The sites have decent spacing in between RVs, although the pull-throughs are a little closer than the back-ins. The cement pads are clean and without cracks. Pet area was suitable and served it's purpose. Trash pickup is provided throughout the day, and the shuttle to the casino runs 24/7 and will arrive within a couple of minutes of being called. I would have given a rating of a 10 except for the internet service. It is decent when it is working, but is limited to just one device. The entire park is on a slope, so about 1/2 of the sites are not quite level and require quite of bit of leveling of the RV. Several RVs are with tires off the ground (although our site was not too bad), and this park lacks a play ground for children. We will definitely return to this park. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is a very nice campground. However the low rating is due to the terrible wifi. Only one user allowed and then about the speed of dialup. For this nice high dollar park the wifi is a joke. Will not stay here again. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This place is awesome. The staff are very friendly and helpful. The owner showed us to our spot and helped us back it in. He came back a little later to make sure we were all hooked and up and happy with the site. The Big sign that someone complained about is a none issue. The Casino is close by and has excellent food. We will be going back in July. I wish all resorts were like this one. All sites are cement pads and level. Water pressure was good and power was stable. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Very clean, nicely landscaped RV Park. Sites are level though a little narrow and close. Otherwise, it would have been a 10. Concrete with picnic table and a tree. Back ins actually a little wider and seem to be further apart. Pool, spa, laundry, and all common areas are spotless. Nice central start for all the attractions in area. Would definitely stay here again. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Great RV park. Passport America. Great pool, concrete pads, paved streets, wifi, nice people, great location. We have stayed here many times and always enjoyed ourselves. Garbage pickup all day. All for PA rates, you can't beat this part. Near Cottonwood, Sedona, and Jerome. We camped here in a Motorhome.
My plan was to spend a full month at this RV Park. Instead I stayed just one night. Since my last visit a year ago, an enormous towering Las Vegas style neon sign, advertising the casino, has been installed. An unacceptable eyesore for me and considerable night time neon light pollution. It is absolutely incredible how such an attractive RV Park can have such remarkable unleveled concrete sites. There are a few level sites and none were available for me. Most Motorhome owners may not realize the damaging stress an unleveled concrete site inflicts on the chassis. The Wi-Fi is poor, the pool is extremely small and an overnighter must ask a staff member for a key to the restroom. Those restrooms are closed when you most need a restroom. By first appearance the sites look spacious. They are not spacious once your neighbors move-in. I think the next time Good Sam inspects this place they may want to actually walk around and look at the sites. Stayed here one night, and I will not return. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Great location for seeing Jerome, Cottonwood, Sedona and parks. Sites were fairly level on concrete slabs with easy hook-ups including sewer. Clean - well maintained park. Staff are helpful with tour information, directions and questions. Road noise can be an issue if you are sensitive to that. The Wi-Fi was strong most of the time. Weather in Williams forced us to stay past a week and we did get a 7th day free. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We were guided to a pull-in site that sits literally on the edge of a canyon, providing a great view of the surrounding mesas. Small grassy areas on both sides of the site. Beautiful green native shrubs on the edge of the precipice. I was concerned that the automatically levelers might leave me with a wheel or two off the ground, so I manually leveled it satisfactorily. A number of other coaches had at least one wheel airborne. Virtually no road noise at this site, but the A/C is running most of the day. Only one WiFi device access code was provided. Water pressure was marginally low, but I didn't catch that until completely set up. Later, I mentioned it in passing to a gentleman that works here. He immediately addressed it. We don't use the pool, clubhouse, etc., in parks, but we did walk through. I noticed 2 residentially style BBQ's, complete with propane, that appear to be available to guests. Don't know if that's typical, but it is just one of the things that separates a park from a resort. This is a resort: but rather contradictory at times. There are a number of sites where a concrete patio is provided, but the RV is parked on dirt. Most other sites are concrete slabs with patios. There were also side by side hook-ups in some areas of the park. We really liked our site and feel very fortunate to have gotten it. We will make sure on future visits to avoid the sites with the less desirable features. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This place is fantastic! I felt out of place with a travel trailer covered with 1200 miles of bugs and dirt! Beautifully landscaped, great check-in, helpful people. I could see staying here for at least a couple of weeks. The only thing lacking for a '10' rating was freeway noise and the light pollution from a huge LED billboard for a casino across the freeway. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Our rate reflects the Good Sam discount. This was a nice, clean park to stay in. We had an escort to our site. We appreciated the cable TV and the free WiFi. It is just a short drive (under 10 minutes) to Montezuma's Castle National Monument, which is worth a visit. The casino will send a shuttle to pick you up & bring you back on the 3 minute ride, even if you just want to go over for dinner as we did. The restrooms & laundry were spic and span! We would stay again. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
This is a very good motor coach location. Clean and well kept. The WIFI is limited to 1 device at a time, which is very inconvenient. The cable is barely acceptable. The shower, laundry and exercise facilities were great. Although the location is next to the interstate highway it is pretty quiet here. We camped here in a Motorhome.
World class in every respect. Clean laundry room, exercise room, fenced pet area. Nice pool, casino with free shuttle. Easy access to Sedona (30 min) and Cottonwood (home Depot). A terrific food store (Bashas) 5 minutes away, there is nothing not to like about this park. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
We stayed for 18 nights at this delightful park. Very clean and tidy park, clubhouse and facilities which include an exercise room. Good paved roads, staff very helpful and friendly. They have group bookings but this is not a problem at all, we had no problems at all with noise. There is a certain amount of low traffic noise from the I-17, however being close to the I-17 makes it very convenient. The park is excellent for visiting Sedona and the surrounding area. This is one of the best parks we have stayed at so far and will certainly use again. We have only given it 9 out of 10 as the one downside is that the wifi/internet is poor but we are told that this is a work in progress so we are hoping it will be better by our next visit. A lovely stay here in a beautiful part of the USA. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Roads are paved, concrete sites, mostly gravel (not dusty) everywhere else. Power, water pressure, hookup layout, cable, Wi-Fi, landscape and facilities are fine. It's a busy place and back-ins in the middle rows are close, but it's a unique layout and not confining. Staff is always busy for the betterment of the grounds. We'll be back. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Absolutely beautiful RV park, convenient to the Cliff Castle casino, Sedona, and all attractions. The staff were wonderful, the bathrooms/showers/laundry room/gym all spotlessly clean and beautiful. There was a lovely little dog park with ground up gravel making it easy to clean up after your dog. The pool area is attractive even though it was closed - but the hot tub was open! The clubhouse is spacious, hot coffee awaits every morning. The Wi-Fi is very strong and free! They have a nice book and DVD library for you to check out. The sites were large and roomy for your tow vehicle and your rig with a nice picnic table provided. The staff is so dedicated to keeping the place immaculate, raking the rocks every day, picking up trash, constantly working to keep everything tip-top! There are RV parks and RV resorts. This was a RESORT at an RV Park price! We loved our stay there and we will return often! We camped here in a Motorhome.
We spent Thanksgiving at this resort and enjoyed the hospitality of the park. The turkey was great! The showers are spotless and the staff is always eager to assist you. The new dog run is another added bonus. We also enjoy the convenience of the free shuttle to the nearby casino. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
We choose this park off the website & AAA book and upon arrival it seems good. We booked for 3 nights & paid on arrival. After payment, we were advised the only restrooms/showers were in the office building, and you had to ask for a key. The internet is limited to one device only and can not be swapped or additional ones purchased. We have been on the road for over 3 months and stayed in over 50 RV parks, and this park has been one of the most unpleasant stays. Having to ask for a key to shower and being made to feel that this is an inconvenience to them each night is appalling. On the 2nd night we had 20 minutes till the office closed at 8pm and was curtly told "you will have to be quick, we are closing soon" and telling a colleague they will have to clean it in the morning. When I got out of the showers at 7:50pm, I found they had locked me in the basement shower area. Eventually finding an unlockable rear exit door I managed to free myself and walk around to return the key. There was no apology offered. They had their bags on the counter ready to leave and were flustered that another customer had called in, even though they still had 7 minutes before closing. You can only shower within their hours which is very inconvenient if you like to rise early or go to bed later. You do not feel like you can freely use the facilities. We did not use the laundry, pool, or spa, due to feeling uncomfortable. The park is right beside the I-17 although the noise is tolerable. The sites are narrow with no privacy between them. The park is clean, however, it has no life or personality, and you are made to feel like an inconvenience. We would never stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We stayed here for 2 weeks to visit the nearby National Parks and other attractions on our way to Phoenix. The park is connected with the nearby Cliff Castle Casino which is operated by the Yavapai-Apache Nation. There is a free shuttle between the park and casino. The park is easily accessed from Interstate 17 but you have to negotiate a small traffic circle if you’re traveling north. The park claims they have “level, concrete pads” but the park was built on a slope so a lot of the sites are not flat or level. This is clearly obvious when you see RV’s blocked up as high as 4 to 6” trying to get level. Some of the sites have two different pitches/slopes on the site. There is a mixture of back in and pull through sites. There seems to be more back ins than pull through sites. The basic sites are primarily smaller, back ins located towards the middle of the park. The larger, wider sites are pull ins-back out sites along the perimeter or pull throughs. Some of those required quite a bit of blocking to get level. The interior roads are paved and the site pads are concrete. There are a couple of tight corners to negotiate but they escort you to your site and assist with backing in. Most all of the sites offer a view of the southern sky with few obstructions to get good satellite reception. Some RV’s in the adjacent sites could obstruct the view of the southern sky interfering with reception as there isn’t much room between the sites. They have full hook ups – water, electricity (50 AMP), & sewer. They also have connections for cable and phone. It appears only the higher priced sites have an outside table. The outdoor area is gravel with some grass around the higher priced sites. The park’s Wi-Fi was intermittent at best. There were times when we only received one or two bars for reception. They limit usage to one computer per site and also your usage (the system would prevent large downloads). We primarily used our Verizon hotspot device and the reception was good. There is a fenced pet area with bag dispensers behind the office building/club house. There was a large area adjacent to the park to walk/run larger dogs. There was sufficient paved roads in the park to walk the dogs but there were no garbage containers throughout the park to dispose of pet waste. We didn’t use the restrooms/showers. They were only accessible when the office building/club house is open because they are controlled by keyed entry. We did use the laundry facility. The machines only take a debt type card which you can get from the office. Some of the machines didn’t work well accepting the card. There were many comments about how people preferred the coin operated machines. The pool and hot tub are out door connected to the office building/club house. The pool is open the same hours as the office building/club house. It was nice park. The staff was very friendly and attentive. Daily site side garbage pickup. There wasn’t much around the park as it is on the edge of town in a rural setting. We would stay here again if ever in the area because we like parks connected to casinos. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Extremely clean and pretty. Clean, spacious doggie run. Our site was unlevel. We could not use our Verizon service. Location is near the tourist sites yet out of the congestion of Sedona. We camped here in a Motorhome.
One of the cleanest facilities I have ever been in. Convenient to Sedona and all the other attractions. WIFI could be slow at times. My Verizon MiFI 4G service would not work in this area which I expected. The pool was cold and refreshing. Our site was a pull in facing a scenic view and was level. Cable reception was excellent. Staff was very friendly. One inconvenience was that showers required a key and you had to wait for service desk to open, no early showers in the clubhouse. We ate at the nearby casino one night. Smoke filled, average service, good meal but a little pricey. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Nicely landscaped, cement pads, full hookups, hot tub, pool, laundry, pet friendly, and everything you need. Free shuttle to nearby casino. No play area for kids or groceries. Will stay here every time we are visiting Flagstaff, Prescott, Cottonwood areas. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Camped here 5 nights/6 days. Very nice park. Easy off and on exit to park. One down side would be that showers were always locked and only accessible during office hours, but we use ours in the RV so didn't matter to us but thought it was odd. This park is exactly as described on their website and beautiful in person. Great location to Sedona, Flagstaff, Cottonwood areas. Would definitely stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is a very nice park. The staff was always friendly and helpful. The pool clean and comfortable temperature. The entire park is very well maintained. The concrete slabs are adequate, but for back-in sites your truck is parked only a few feet from your door. So, if you are sitting outside, you are generally looking at your RV or your truck. The thing that was most annoying is the Wi-Fi situation, as the last person mentioned. You only get one password and we both use our laptops all the time. We were able to use our MiFi for the 2nd laptop, but I think it should be clear before you get there that you only get one password. We really like this location which puts you near to Sedona, Oak Creek Canyon, Mingus Mountain, Jerome, etc. We would stay here again. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
As has been mentioned, the park is clean and well run. Downside is not all sites are level and some are extreme. WiFi allows one (1) code per site and usage is measured. Don't try to watch an email attached video or you'll exceed the limit and WiFi will become s l o w and s l o w e r! I find this unacceptable!!! We will try somewhere else next time. We camped here in a Motorhome.
First of all, we really do like this park. It isvery well run, but there are 2 things we think people should know about the park. 1) most sites are not level, either front or back depending in the direction you park. I had to use 4 pads on each of the front jacks with them fully extended to level the coach. When we walked around the park we saw most rigs on blocks. But we do understand the sloped pads because of the heavy rains. 2) they only give you one password for the Wi-Fi even if you have 2 computers. We offered to pay for a second password but we would have had to pay for another site, so one of us did without. Besides these two issues the park is very clean, friendly staff, nice location and a free shuttle to the casino if you want to visit it. We will stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This place was nice. The staff was very friendly and helpful. We had the coolest weather while staying here. It was hot but it would rain and they had the neatest thunderstorms. which cooled it down. Wish the pool would of been open until at least 10 PM. But all in all nice place to stay. Would camp there again. Great attractions near by to visit, Montezumas wells, Tuzigoot and the train ride in Clarkdale. Lot of great history. Casino on other side if interstate with bowling for the kids and gambling for the adults. We camped here in a Tent Trailer.
Wi-Fi very marginal. Some sites would be difficult to level in. Staff was very friendly and guided us to our site with no problems. The fitness room was very modern and clean. Although located near the interstate, we found it plenty quiet and got good sleep. A great place to see many attractions. We ate at the Horn Saloon in Camp Verde and it was good. We would stay there again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is an excellent RV Park, and perhaps the best along the I-17 corridor. Good Sam provided it a rating of 10-10-10. Not so in my opinion! There are 158 sites and at best only 30 are close to being level. Some offering an extraordinary leveling challenge. I recommend checking and finding a suitable level site before getting assigned to a site. At first glance the sites appear to be spacious. Not so if another rig gets parked to your rear. Then you'll find your RV just a few feet from a neighbor. The utilities here are top notched and positioned in an ideal location at each site. The Wi-Fi was great and without any sort of problem. The exercise equipment is new and provides the opportunity to get a real weight lifting work-out. The grounds are well landscaped and well maintained. The entire place is well maintained and there is absolutely no rift raft here. I heard some noise from I-17 and it was easy to tune-out. For me, there were far to many security lights, which are unnecessary. Why do RV Parks think they need to light-up the place like a 24 hour truck stop? Excellent accommodating staff. I stayed here three nights at Passport America rate. I will stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Great location and easy access off I-17, especially for Sedona, Prescott, and Flagstaff areas of AZ. The staff was very helpful, the campground superbly maintained and quiet. All the amenities were in working order--a big plus!! We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This is a lovely and clean park. We stayed for 4 nights for a rally. My only objection is that the office doesn't open until 8:00 a.m., and you need a key to use the shower room. If you want to work out and shower before breakfast, you're out of luck. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is a great park, we stayed here for 2 weeks. The front desk is very helpful and friendly. Clean restrooms and laundry. The only reason I did not give them a 10 is that the Wi-Fi is really bad. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Price is the daily average based on the weekly rate net of Good Sam discount and taxes. While this is a very nice park, it is not a 10 on my scale. To be a 10, a park would need such things as: 1) sites that are level, or at least more level than the ones here; 2) showers accessible 24 hours, not just when the office is open; 3) some kind of table/seating at the sites. I also have a pet peeve about parks that call themselves a “resort.” There are true RV resorts, but a small pool and hot tub does not make a park a resort. There is nothing wrong with being a nice RV park, which this one is. The staff is friendly and is always doing cleaning and maintenance, both inside and outside. The park is in a nice setting, and there is a lot to see and do within a 25-mile radius. Note: The buffets at the nearby casino are overpriced and very poor as casino buffets go. That said, the items off the menu were pretty good and reasonably priced, and the Johnny Rockets Diner was good if you like that type of place. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is a very nice campground that will accommodate larger motorhomes as well as smaller RVs. It is clean and well maintained. The perimeter sites have beautiful views of the valley. I would have given it a higher scores except for two issues: 1) Many of the pads are not level and may cause a problem. For our 40 foot motorhome both front wheels were off the ground after leveling. 2) The Wi-Fi is terrible, so slow it is unusable in the evening. Wi-Fi connections in mid-day were fair. And, they will only allow one Wi-Fi code per campsite. The Verizon broadband coverage was also poor in this area. We camped here in a Motorhome.
An excellent park with great facilities and a friendly staff. An escort led us to our site on the paved roads, and each site is level concrete with a parking pad. Landscaping throughout the park is exceptional, and although near the Interstate, it's quiet at night. The free Wi-Fi worked well, and Verizon data service was usable, but slow. The location provides an excellent base for visiting Sedona, Montezuma Castle, and other area attractions. As mentioned, the showers are cleaned after each use, a remarkable service. We enjoyed our stay here and will return. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Very nice CG. Easy on/off the interstate, close to Casino if you enjoy that. Also many hiking trails in area and national monuments. Close to Sedona and Flagstaff. The staff were very helpful, sites had cement pads, Very well maintained. We would definitely stay here again. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This campground is very nice. They clean the showers after each use. Staff is very helpful and friendly. Centrally located to all attractions. We come to this area for a couple of weeks every year. First time at this park. We stayed in one of the sites along the edge which are not back in they are pull straight in. Most of these sites have a view of mountains and if you have a pet, just walk out the RV and walk on a trail. Loved this park. The only neg is Wi-Fi is iffy and Sprint doesn't work well, at least in the site we were in. Verizon works good. Traffic from Hwy was not noticeable where we camped. Will come back. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We picked this campground based on its central location and reviews published on this website. Most of the reviews were spot on both positive and negative. Nice campground with easy access to area attractions. Great views from west side sites. First, the negatives. Pads seem to vary from level to needing 10" inches of leveling blocks. Doesn't seem to be a pattern to location in campground. One site is dead on next is way out of level. Ours on west side required the front jacks to put the front tires on tip toes. Whoever graded the campground and poured the concrete needs to go back to school. Just be prepared. Water pressure seemed a bit low at times. Wifi was marginal especially during peak periods. Our ATT signal voice was good but Internet sucked. Desk staff seem a bit overwhelmed with more than one check in at a time. But they were nice. On the positive side the campground seems to run well. Daily trash pick up at your site. Electricity was not a problem. Nice, new dog "park." I17 noise didn't bother us even though we like in a rural area. Maybe a problem in part of park nearest Interstate. Good dog walking opportunities off lead especially on west side of park. Very clean sites. Sites not crowded. Seemed to be a lot of snowbirds spending the winter here. Didn't use any other facilities at park. Go to Montezuma's Castle and Well. Jerome is interesting as is road to Prescott from there. Sedona is beautiful but way toooooooo many people and tooooooo much traffic. Trip to Tuzigoot was interesting with nice museum. Don't think will stay here again. No reflection on the park just not enough close good hiking to hold our attention. Camp Verde is in the "ugly" zone between the red rocks of Sedona and the Sonoran desert of Apache Junction. This is a perfect place for a one or two night stay. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We stayed here for 5 nights. When checking in, we found this to be the friendliest park yet. The ones at the check in had volunteer on their name tags, but were ever so helpful. We had excellent internet connection and cable service. We would certainly stay here again if in the area. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
We have stayed at this park several times and will come back again. It is always clean and the staff is the best. They are always extremely friendly and helpful. There is so much to do in this area and the staff is very knowledgable. It is my understanding that the park is undergoing new management which is good news! We stayed here for a couple of months this summer and the manager was gone, however the staff seemed to really have things under control. We certainly never met the "rude" staff. Would definitely stay here again! We camped here in a Motorhome.
This park is centrally located. The park has slipped in cleanliness and friendliness since our last stay. The previous managers are no longer at the park and it shows! The new managers (two women) are not friendly! There were many problems with check-in. We asked for a pull through and got a back in, what a hassle. We were not even offered assistance to our site. The sites are very hard to level your coach in. The Wi-Fi is non existent. When we went to use the showers, the girls at desk were rude and insisted we shower together. I do not feel it was our fault they have to be cleaned after each use! Many things have changed here. We will not be back!!!! We camped here in a Motorhome.
The office staff was great and very helpful. We were given a back in site. Would have preferred a pull through. Leveling was tricky. Wi-Fi was not good at all. There was road noise at night. This is a good central location to get to several other cities and all of the National parks and monuments. It's not a perfect park but we would definitely stay there again. It has an air of safety that not all parks have. Camp workers are never still. They work and clean constantly and the park reflects their hard work--very clean. We camped here in a Motorhome.
My wife chose this park to hold my retirement party/rally and everyone raved about the condition of the park and the hospitality of the staff. The staff went out of their way to make this a wonderful event for me and all of my friends. We will be planning another event here in the future. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Nice park and very friendly staff. Sites are not level but we could deal with it. Nice location for visiting Sedona and there is a casino across the interstate. We would stay here again. Had a nice 4 days. Easy on and off the interstate. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This park creates a great first impression. The streets are paved and the parking pads and patios are concrete. There is some grass around the perimeter sites only. Otherwise it is pea gravel and some bushes around. They rake the gravel smooth daily. There is no picnic table or fire ring. I did like the fact that the pad and patio were wide enough for a motorhome with slides on both sides, room to open your hatches and parking for your toad while still on the concrete. That was nice. I did not like that I had to drive my motorhome up on two boards in the rear and put blocks under the rear jacks to get level. They definitely screwed up when they poured the concrete with such a large slope. The water pressure varied from 36# to 45# so it was pretty low. The sites are kind of staggered with side by side hookups and with the slideouts out you are pretty close to your neighbor. Some larger motorhomes had a hard time backing out of their perimeter sites without hitting the RV across the road. The staff was very nice and accommodating but we will probably not return. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Why is my rating so low? It is a nice looking park with very friendly staff. But when you have a 38 foot MH with auto leveling system and you need to drive up on 2 boards and manually level, there is a serious problem with the design of the park! The pull-through sites, which we were in due to availability, are sloped so much that it is impossible to level. When I mentioned this to the staff that parked us, his answer was: "There was a guy down there parked for 2 years with none of his tires on the ground." Very unacceptable in our opinion. (Also MH manufacturers who state that tires should never be off the ground as it will adversely effect the frame and axle.) We would not return to this park nor would we recommend it to anyone for that reason. We camped here in a Motorhome.
I can see why so many folks give this place a 9 or a 10, but I think most of those folks are retired/older folks (as am I). They tend to overlook the lack of recreational facilities (for example, the pool is way too small for a park this size) for families. A few reviewers have mentioned leveling and highway noise problems. I am surprised that I saw only one other review that mentioned the bathroom/showers closing at a ridiculous 8PM. Yes, the park is attractive, clean, well groomed, etc. and everything worked well, but it does have its' flaws. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Great RV park. Close to a casino if that is your thing. Close to I-17 but road noise was not an issue. Hard surface roads and pads. Great hookups. Cable TV and wi-fi worked fine. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is a very nice park, especially for the price. The motor home sites are a little nicer than the pull-through sites because you are not back to back with your neighbor. The motor home only sites are head in and designed to give you a better view. The sites while they do have some slope designed for drainage, are not excessive. Some may be more than others. There is some traffic noise, but we didn't find it excessive. There is also an airstrip nearby so small private planes sometimes fly low over the park. This is usually during daylight hours, and more so on weekends. The staff is attentive and takes good care of the property. It is the desert so there is a lot of rock, but not much grass. I would stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is a great campground with cement sites and patios, heated pool and spa. It is manicured extremely well. The staff is great. The location is wonderful. We will definitely come back. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Very nice campground. Super clean and well maintained. Ground crew were constantly pulling weeds and raking the gravel between the concrete pads. Everyone very friendly including other campers. As mentioned elsewhere the pads are not very level but manageable. We stayed here while attending a Willie Nelson concert (loved it) at the Cliff Castle Casino across the interstate from the campground. The Casino provides shuttle service to the campground. We will return. Thank you for a great stay. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is a nice park right off the highway. The staff is friendly and the grounds are spotless. Showers and restrooms are clean and the pool was great. I was surprised how uneven the spots were though. Not a big concern if you have levelers. Great place for short of long stays. We would stay again. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Our first visit here but not our last. This park is spotless, well laid out and very well run. The folks here go out of their way to be helpful and informative of the area. Great pool and spa. Long, wide and level concrete pads with well thought out utility placement. Not much shade, but this is Arizona. We don't give out very many 10's but this one deserves it. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
We love this park. It really shouldn't be called a resort, but it is excellent. VERY clean! Very nice staff. Freeway noise might be more noticable if you have to leave your windows open. But with air conditioning and in most sites you hardly notice it. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Rate reflects weekly stay. Staff friendly and helpful. Sites immaculate. Had problem with low water pressure but staff member adjusted water pressure quickly after we reported it. Near so many activities: casino, railroad ride in Cottonwood into canyon, hiking in Red Rock Park, shopping next town over, hiking in Dead Horse State Park, and exploring Indian dwellings near by. Would stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Camp Verde is a great place to spend your winter months in Arizona, but you do get some weather there. The town is easily accessible from this park in addition to shopping and site seeing in nearby towns. The park is very clean and neat. Not good for children however as there isn't much to occupy them other than the pool in summer months. Its a great place for someone to stay for a night or two. There is the Cliff Castle Casino across the way from the park which offers some entertainment on weekends other than gambling and the park offers a bus to and from the casino. The park has a gym for exercise enthusiasts, but it is quite small. Its a great place for adults and retirees! We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Reluctantly, I give this resort only a 9. It should be a 10+, but despite all of the positive things said in prior reviews (almost all of which I agree with), there are a couple of problems. First and foremost, are the sites themselves. Very few of them are level and most of them are from 6"-18" out of level. Many RVs are up on jack pads to achieve a level status. They spent a small fortune putting in roads (paved) and the sites (all concrete with parking space) with neatly maintained pea gravel between the sites, but apparently failed to consider making them level. A few more scrapes with a bulldozer on each site would have done the trick. The other thing that irked me is the lack of picnic tables. When I asked, they told me (you are going to love this) that this was a resort and resorts don't have tables, only parks do. OK, maybe I'm being a bit picky about the tables, but we like to dine outside weather permitting and don't like the idea of using valuable (rig storage) space for a table. All said and done, this is a great park. Very friendly staff. When we asked if we could have another site that was more level, they immediately accommodated. Almost everytime a staff member rides by, they stop and ask if we need anything. We had one tire that needed air, and were told that when we were ready they would bring a compressor to our site. Pool, showers, bathrooms and laundry were very clean. We would definitely stay here again. And you should to, but don't forget jack pads and a table. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Love this park! Close to all surrounding communities to do and see things (Jerome, Cottonwood, Sedona), plus the Casino is near for cheap meals and a shuttle upon request. It's one of the cleanest parks we've stayed at in Arizona! As soon as a rig pulls out, they're there to clean up anything that needs it: rake out the gravel and have it in tip-top shape! If you use the showers, you have to get a key at check in desk, and return when done. They clean the showers after each persons use! Laundry room is very clean and neat with an iron/board. There is a exercise room with variety and TV/video. Swimming pool is ok, but the hot tub is great! We got the weekly rate and we would definitely stop here again. It was 'repeat' for us this year! A nice find with easy access on and off the hwy. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
What a nice surprise! We came here for a week to escape the heat of the Phoenix area, and were met with extremely friendly staff. We parked at a "valley view" site, but there was too much afternoon sun for my wife, so we requested a site change. That request was cheerfully and immediately honored. The sites are cleaned and the gravel raked after each guest. The office has free (and great) coffee each day. They tell you about things to do in the area, and provide maps of such. The laundry and gym are clean and adequate. The nearby casino has a bowling alley and great inexpensive food. It's just a hop, skip and a jump from here to Sedona, Jerome, and Prescott. We asked to move to a pull-through site our last night, as we had to leave early the next day and did not want to disturb any other guests by backing up so early. They cheerfully honored this request. We were very impressed and would definitely stay here again! We camped here in a Motorhome.
This park was neat, clean and up to date. All sites are level and easy to access. Staff was very friendly and helpful. There is no real shade here but early May was still comfortable. Moderate traffic noise from I-17 can be heard. We stayed here because there are a number of interesting points of interest nearby, including Sedona. We would stay here again! We camped here in a Motorhome.
I have three complaints. First is the fact that it's nearly impossible to level your rig. The beautiful concrete pads are so far from level, the company that poured them should be sued. Good luck trying to level your rig. Second, they want your garbage out front by 8:00 am and you can't leave it out overnight. I'm sorry, I'm on vacation and not getting up early so I can put my garbage out. Third, it seems that if you stay at a discounted rate, even though there are plenty of them available, you will not get a pull-through. Otherwise, I agree with all the other reviews about what a nice, clean, friendly and convenient park this is. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
We are full-timers and enjoyed a month at this park. All roads are paved, with concrete pads, and decorative gravel between sites. It was often windy, but no dust. Many sites have a slight slope, ours took three leveling blocks. No shade, few trees. Very convenient location right off I-17; there is some road noise, but it didn't bother me. The Cliff Casino is right across the freeway overpass with a free shuttle. Very nice, clean facilities - individual shower/bath rooms, big reasonably priced laundry, library, well-equipped fitness room, nice pool and hot tub, meeting room. Most of the time their W-Fi was excellent, but there were a few short times when it did not work. Our Sprint air card and Verizon cell phone worked fine. Good Cable TV, 27 channels. Office staff was friendly. We enjoyed Parkside Community Church 3 miles down the road. We would stay here again. The rate is for a month. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
We were just passing through the area on our way to the Grand Canyon. Park was clean and well maintained. Staff was very helpful and pleasant. If we were in the area again, we would definitely stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We go back to this park fairly often in that it is a perfect first night out, last night out or great to for hiking / photo shooting around there or near Sedona. We don't like side by side hookups which is the only downside I see to this park. But the plus side here is that the pull throughs are very long so the patios are offset. Best laundry you will ever find! We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
The sites are clean with concrete pads and parking. Office staff was friendly and helpful. The Wi-Fi was not working at the sites when we arrived. They were changing the towers and indicated it would be completed in 3 or 4 days. It was completed and works great in our location. We stayed for one week. If in the area again, this is where we would stay. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
The park is clean and the rest room and showers are clean, but no access after 9:00pm. The park is located off I-17 which has a lot of truck noise with there Jake brakes. On the other end of the park is a cattle guard making noise. The Management here is not real friendly but the host at this park has no type of events, there is nothing to do. This park is good for a one or two day stay at the most. Not a park I would stay for long a long period. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
We paid the weekly rate, and therefore, got a discounted price. They have different rates for different parts of the campground. Mountain view sites are premium sites and are more than sites located in the interior of the park. This park is immaculate. After a rig pulls out they sweep the concrete pad, check for any debris, and rake the pea gravel that surrounds the site. This campground is meticulously maintained. All sites, patios, and roadways are paved and spotless. Staff was friendly with coffee served every morning. The nearby casino serves good food at reasonable prices. We camped here in a Motorhome.
To say this park is "pristine" is the understatement of the day. The roads are paved, the sites are all concrete pads and the decorative gravel is raked regularly. I don't think there is a pebble or a leaf out of place. The Wi-Fi worked great, the pool was closed, but the hot tub was open. We got the Passport rate (which ends at the end of February) but that meant we were sent to the back corner, which gave us a lovely view of the interstate on-ramp. There's a casino across the interstate which meant we got a great dinner for only $10. I'm not sure I'd pay the full rate, especially since you can boon dock for free at the casino, but at half price, I'd return. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Very nice park. Pristinely clean, and staff was among the friendliest we have met! Landscaping was appropriate for a desert park, and pads are adequately sized. Our site had a nice view of beautiful sunsets and the park is close enough to Sedona that we could drive back and forth to see the sights. Internet was hit-or-miss and we wished the hot tub and laundry facilities would have been open a little later. Otherwise we had a nice stay and hope to return! We camped here in a Motorhome.
This has to be one of the best campgrounds we have stayed at. The manager was extremely friendly and helpful and even stopped by later to make sure everything was Ok. The park is very clean, level concrete pads with a beautiful view of the mountains. Has one of the most friendly "dog areas" with real grass, a rarity in Arizona. Other campers were very friendly and several say they come here locally because it is such a great place to just get away. Manager was very helpful in mapping out local day trips to Sedona (30 minutes) and other local towns. Will definitely make this a stop on any future trips. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We spent a week here in late October at the weekly rate $195.00. Great place to do day trips to Sedona, Jerome, Prescott, etc. Campground was very clean and would have gotten a ten, but the internet was a little unreliable. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Pull-through sites are very narrow, cement slabs with patio. Well maintained and groomed every day. If you need propane, as I did, be careful. I had about 12 inches on each side and needed help to get into position without hitting either a wall or a post. No shade, so the hotter months could be uncomfortable. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Super park - would rate a 10 except for some background freeway noise. Rate reflects a weekly rate. We have stayed here before and will again. Super maintained park with small trees between some sites with a few grassy patches. Staff is efficient and very helpful. Even the small landscape rocks are raked to keep things looking their very best! Back in sites have room for the car alongside and this creates a bit of a patio area. Long pull through sites place cars behind and are a single width but hold the largest of RVs. We have used this park as a base camp to see the sights in the area. Wi-Fi, basic cable and electric are all very solid. A nice desert oasis and a great stopover park. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This truly is a wonderful park/resort. We would've rated it a "10" except for the freeway noise. If you were to camp here during hotter weather then the freeway noise wouldn't be an issue with closed windows at night. Exceptionally clean and well maintained. Staff very friendly in person and on the phone when we made reservations. Beautiful views 360* around. Nice path around the park for walking dogs and humans. Good paved sites with plenty of room to park a dinghy on site, good water pressure, good electrical hookups, well maintained septic system. (no slow draining). Can't say enough about this place. Would stay here again when in the area. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Stayed here on night back in September, the rate reflects PA membership. This is the best, well kept place I have ever seen. Showers, restrooms, laundry and exercise room are very clean. They actually clean them after every use. Grounds are well maintained and clean. Nice pool/hot tub. A little bit of noise from the freeway. We liked it so much we came back here and are staying a month $560 so we can venture out an see the sites around here. Sedona, Flagstaff, Prescott, Montezumas Castle. Oh, and there is an very nice Casino across the Hwy. where you can get a huge Prime Rib for $10 on Tuesday nights. I highly recommend this place. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Distant Drums was a very pleasant RV park with updated facilities and proximity to a number of attractions such as Tuzigoot National Monument, Montezuma's Castle and the Cliffside Casino in Camp Verde. The park is well kept and maintained and the staff is very pleasant and friendly. There is cable/satellite TV and internet available. Internet was a little slow but fairly reliable. Some of the RV sites slope a bit and will require some leveling of the RV. There is a small store on site that carries ice and some limited RV and grocery supplies. There is no pet-run but the Park borders open desert so there are many places to take your dog for excercise and "relief". We stayed here about a month. It can get a little toasty up here in August. It's only about 4,000 feet in altitude. Closer to Flagstaff is much more pleasant during the summer. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is a very nice park. TV is good, WiFi is excellent. The staff is very friendly. This is the first place that calls themselves a resort and truly is. All sites concrete and level. We stayed here 3 days and will stay again. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Distant Drums RV Resort was great. My family and I arrived Friday afternoon, the site they gave us was fantastic. Even though we have an "older" travel trailer, we were able to set up with no problems. The staff was super friendly and very helpful. Loved the private showers. Only down side is they close at 8:00 pm and don't open up again until 8:00 am, so if you get back to the resort late, you have to wait until the next day to shower. Also no restrooms available during those hours. It was not a problem though. Just adjusted our schedule. I would definitely recommend this park if you are going to be anywhere near the Grand Canyon. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
This park is very nice and clean with all of the amenities one could want. It is a bit noisy at night since it is right next to the freeway, but access is good. The staff is nice enough and helpful. We were very frustrated with the limited access to the shower/exercise/pool facilities which are supposedly open from 8a-8p. When we tried to take our kids swimming after a long day on the road, the pool had closed early (in their defense, the maintenance person let them in to splash for a few minutes). We tried to take a shower at 7:15 pm, but we were turned away and told the showers had been cleaned already, no exceptions. The park states quiet time is 10 pm but our kids were told to stop riding their bikes at 8 pm. This park is great is you don't mind CC&R's and very limited hours, but flexibility is not a priority here. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Stayed for 2 months. Many of the best sites are taken by work campers. The store / office should be open later than 9pm and was often closed before 8:30. That lead to the pool being closed before 8:45 as posted. Even if a guest was in the pool staff would ask the guest to get out of the pool, so staff could get off early. The Area around the pool could have been better. Laundry is clean. The Gym small and clean. All in all the best Park for miles around. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
If it had some shade and better store facilities I would give it a 10 because compared to the rest of the RV parks available in the Verde Valley, Distant Drums is a mansion and the others are tract houses. We have tried most of the other parks, because of DD's locale to the freeway and no shade, but should have been staying here all along. Could not hear any freeway noise and with the pool and other facilites, our grandkids loved it. Will never stay anywhere else in the Verde Valley! We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
I found the sites very cramped together. We were assigned a site right next to another rig and there were plenty of open sites so we chose a different one. Wasn't a problem. We didn't unhook and the site was very uneven (front to back was barely tolerable). We were just staying the night so didn't really take advantage of the "resort" facilities. I'd try to find a more reasonably priced park if I were in the area again. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This is our third stay in this park. We love it here. Staff is great. Showers are clean. Pool is great. Sites 38 through 43 have great views. Nice level concrete pads. Laundry is clean. We will stay here every time we are traveling in this area. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is a really nice RV park in a small town. There are some permanent residents, but many come here for vacations. Everyone (especially the permanent residents) were very friendly and helpful. This was our first time in our new tent trailer, and one of the residents helped us set up. We felt very welcome. It was very quiet and peaceful despite the sites being a little close to each other. The bathrooms are very clean (even for a busy Memorial Day weekend), and the showers are cleaned after each person. There is a small pool and hot tub which was also very clean. The grounds are well maintained, and they pick up your trash every morning. The laundry room was clean, and I was comfortable doing all my laundry there. You don't even need quarters as they have a card they issue with however much you want to put on the card. This RV park is my first pick for the greater Sedona area and there is a lot to do near Camp Verde. We will definitely come here again when we return to the Sedona area. We camped here in a Tent Trailer.
This is a very nice, clean park. The roads are all paved and easily navigable. The sites are all concrete pads. Unfortunately, the whole park is on a slope, so while the sites are concrete, they are not particularly level. A 5th wheel would be easy to level but the site we were first assigned had the front wheels about 8" lower than the rear. It had good WiFi and cable TV, and the hookups were convenient. It's also very convenient to the casino. Whether that's a plus or not is up to the reader to decide. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Because of the proximity of Distant Drums to our home, we have frequently stayed here for first night out or last night out when traveling in that direction. We also use it as a base for activities in Sedona and the surrounding area. We have never been disappointed about anything in this park. Sites might be a tad close as mentioned, but not an issue with us. Picnic tables would be nice but that is not a factor for us. We were just here for 5 nights and were very pleased. Staff is great and the owner really does a great job running the place. The laundry is spotless and we use it each time except when first night out. Highly recommend Distant Drums. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This is a very nice RV park. The sites are all concrete and well maintained. The hookups are well placed and easy to use. There is a pool, exercise room, and small store. The staff is friendly. Some sites may be a bit close together, but it really isn't a problem. I thought it would have too much freeway noise, but that really wasn't a problem. Great location to make day trips to Sedona, Prescott, and surrounding area. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is a very well maintained RV resort with nice, level cement pads. The private bathrooms/showers are cleaned after every use, and, although there were only 6 of them, for the 6 days we stayed, we never had to wait. Fairly convenient to Sedona and Jerome (half hour drive). We would stay here again if in the area. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Why do so many camp grounds call themselves a resort? Distant Drums is clean. It has private, clean, contained bathrooms. It's on the freeway. It's near Sedona. Distant Drums is not a resort. I didn't film it. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This was a real find for us! We enjoyed staying here as it was very, very clean and well attended! It's the first time I've ever stayed somewhere that they come in after you've showered and clean the shower/restroom immediately! Laundry room is spotless, ironing board and iron set up for your use taking clothes out of the dryer. Was cheap enough for a wash or dry at $1.25 per. All sites are concrete and very level, neat & clean, dog friendly, quiet nights with low lighting, cable TV and free WiFi. Personnel is friendly and helpful. Shuttle to and from the Casino is nice and 10% discount at restaurant. Handy and convenient to places for sight seeing and shopping (only minutes from Sedona, Cottonwood, Jerome). Would definitely stay here again. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Nice location. Easy access from I-17, so there's some traffic noise, but not really a problem. A good location to use as a base to all the things there are to see in this area. Office staff was very cordial and professional. Workout facility is quite nice. Didn't use the hot tub, pool or laundry, but they looked nice. On the downside, most sites in this park are not level. They're quite narrow, which means you can be inches away from your street side neighbor. WiFi was spotty, as was AT&T cell service. We spent a week here this time, but in the future will probably use this park as just an overnighter. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We stayed one week and the weekly rate was $195, with full hook ups and Wi-Fi included. The park is immaculate and laid out well, but the sites are fairly close to one another as our street side window was not very far from the curb side of the rig next to us. There was ample room for our jeep (which we tow behind our fifth wheel), and our long box diesel truck on our site. Would definitely stay here again but not for an entire winter season. Easy on/off to I-17 and centrally located to Sedona, Camp Verde, Cottonwood, Jerome, etc. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Boy, am I glad that I did not put any stock in that last reviewer. I would have missed the cleanest park I have seen in Arizona. What a fantastic place! The staff is extremely friendly and helpful. We will stay here again and recommend it to our friends. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Lovely location and park. Booked in without a reservation and were assured that we were very lucky, as the place was filling up fast and we were given a spot that someone had just vacated. It was right next to the sewer with prevailing winds. This late in the season did not materialize into Grand Central Station with about three quarters full! Our inconsiderate next door neighbors must have been workers in the area. 5:00 AM motors running, doors slamming and motor cycles idling got my attention. Thanks! Also, it should be mandatory for pet owners to pick up the droppings of their pet on the side roads and trails. People seemed to think that it was okay for their dogs to be turned loose to just go where nature calls and then leave. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Yes, it's a nice park but this low review is a warning for Passport America members. We called twice and could not get a site because the park only saves TEN of the 158 sites for PA, and there's a 3 night limit. The entire month of April was booked. Big Rip-off. Have been here before; it's not really worth the full daily rate which starts at $33 and goes up. We camped here in a Motorhome.
I would have given a 10 rating but, the sites are a bit narrow. Length is fine. This place is new and first class all the way. We decided to stay for two nights because everything is so nice. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
We camped here for one month, March-April 2010. The campground is clean, the staff was very friendly and the location was good right off I-17. The reason I gave this place a seven is that it always smells. I was in site 36 which was only 50 yards from the septic system. It smelled all the time. I ask to be moved to another site three times but I was never moved. I talked to some of the other people in the park and they also said it smells. The only other complaint I had was the noise from I-17. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is well laid out with large sites and individual concrete patios. My only concern was minor freeway noise when outside our RV. Sites are mostly level and ample for large rigs. Staff was helpful and informative. Casino across the freeway, runs a shuttle van here and town is about three miles away for basic services. A newer park that has stable electric. We will likely stay here again although the price is high. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We stayed here for two weeks. It is very well kept and convenient to I-17. The back in sites are snug for a 40' MH. The patio slab is roomy, with plenty of room for a towed vehicle. The wireless internet is strong and consistent. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Beautiful campground just outside of Sedona. Paved roads. Cement pads and patio. Nice laundry and swimming pool. Casino across the highway with shuttle service. Nice little town just down the road with grocery and Walgreens. Staying 3 days but would like to stay longer. Will definitely return. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We stayed here once again: been here several times in the past; guess our returning says something! One of the cleanest and well kept up RV parks we know. We stay for visits to Sedona area for hiking and photo work; and use it as a last night before home when coming in from the north to our home south of Tucson. Great staff and great facilities. Our price is for a pull through site. Highly recommend it and we will return many times. (I don't give out a 10 very often!) We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This was the weekly rate. Excellent park conveniently located. Staff was very friendly and helpful. Grounds are continuously maintained as guests move in and out. Trees that may have blown into our coach were trimmed without us even having to ask. Wi-Fi worked great, and we were in a far corner of the park. Also got a great price on a wash/wax. My only negative comment is that many pads are not level. Will definitely stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Rate is for Passport America, good for 3 nights. Very nice facility associated with Cliff Castle Casino. Heated pool looked great, as did the exercise room. Overall a very well maintained campground. Staff is excellent and very helpful. Negatives: Many un-level sites, why do people that decide to develop a campground, hire concrete contractors who don't have a level or transit? Why does a developer plant so many desert plants that encroach on the parking pad to the point that one can't open hatches, without pushing them out of the way? Why does the park advertise Wi-Fi that doesn't reach the last 3 rows of sites? There are several permanent RVs on the property, some are cluttered. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Very nice campground, especially for a one-night pass through. Nicely landscaped in desert plants; very clean and convenient - right off the I-17. Only criticism would be lack of trees; however, this is not unlike other desert community RV parks. Mostly older adults - did not see any children, but that could be time of year. Pets are welcome. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We have stayed here in the past and will continue to use it as an overnight stop when passing through. The pad we had this time was narrow, we just barely got our wheels on it (pull-through). Also, I had to put blocks under the back wheels so I could level the rig. We noticed that the sites where sloped at one end, I guess for monsoon run off. We took the little bus over to the casino and ate at their cafe, meal was good and they discounted the bill because we had a slot card. Clean park, well maintained. We camped here in a Motorhome.
I camped on Passport America rate, plus tax. Site selection is important since campground is on a hill, and there are many uneven concrete sites that require an extra amount of leveling for motorhomes. Park is beautifully maintained and has a nice mountain view. Electric power was steady at 116 volts. Office staff was pleasant at check-in. I did not use clubhouse facilities. We camped in third row up from southern edge of park. The sewer drains and sewer plant are at the west end of this row, and it was quite smelly outside when we camped here. Also, we were careful backing in since our duals would barely fit on the concrete site pad. Choose your site wisely, and this could be a 10 campground. I would definitely stay here again if I got a more level site up on the hill away from sewer plant. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Feels like we arrived in Heaven. After a terrible experience at Western Horizons "Resort" we came here and THIS IS A RESORT!!! There is every amenity a fulltimer could possibly need, and we're chillin with 2 AC's running and unlimited FREE wireless internet. Worth every dollar! We camped here in a Motorhome.
This would be a great park for a family in a fully equipped larger RV. It was clean and neat and well-managed. We felt secure. But for us, it was more of a "5." You need a key to get to the restrooms/showers, but the key is at the desk of the office that is closed for about 10-12 hours out of every 24. And getting to the office from our site required climbing stairs, which one of us cannot do. It was a nice park which we would *not* visit again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Distant Drums is exceptionally clean and neat. We are full-timers and we have never stayed in a campground where they clean the showers/bathrooms after every single use! The air conditioned and heated private bathrooms are complete, with a toilet, sink, and shower. They even provide you with a disposable bath mat, chair, touchless paper towel dispenser, soap, etc. The laundry room is large and spotless! They use a card system rather than quarters for the washers & dryers, which you buy at the front desk. It has an ironing board, iron, sink, rod to hang clothes, two counters and a TV. There's a computer & printer in the lobby for guests, a sofa with a large TV, fireplace and library in the community room. We intended to stay one night and ended up staying nine days! Loved it there and highly recommend it. Very friendly, helpful staff! Great rates, too (Good Sam's discount makes it even better). We camped here in a Motorhome.
We stayed here two years ago, and loved it then. Nothing has changed and it is still a great RV park. We were on our way home after a three week trip, and planned to stay for one night, but decided to stay an extra night since it is so nice. Showers and rest rooms are spotless, and it is just a nice place to stay. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Nice, new park conveniently located near the freeway. Concrete pads are wide but not many pull throughs or long sites available. Our 40' coach occupied full length of site so a 45' coach would not fit. Park is on sloping hillside so many sites are somewhat unlevel. Very helpful staff at park. Bathrooms and showers were cleaned after each use, believe it or not. Wi-fi worked great the entire time of our stay. Excellent laundry facilities. Park was a nice base for visiting Sedona, Cottonwood and Montezuma Castle. We can recommend this park and would stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We stayed in Distant Drums RV Park for four nights and thought it a very friendly and well maintained RV park. The sites are all paved and swept clean by volunteer camp hosts. The Wi-Fi signal is excellent. A nice trail to walk dogs exists beyond the perimeter of the park. For all the amenities that are available, it is very reasonably priced. The two negatives is that there are no tables and the best sites are reserved for motor-homes but I would definitely return again. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
We stayed here with our RV club caravan of 13 rv's. The staff was very friendly in the office. The yard staff helped us with backing in a few rigs. When one rig would vacate the space was raked and swept clean. One staff member took pictures of our first night buffet and gave it to all of us as a keepsake DVD. New trees will provide some shade in the warm months. We will stay here again. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
We camped here for 2 weeks part of a group of 15 rigs. Our group was kindly offered a discount rate even though we did not ask for it. Most sites are back ins. Sites are cement pads and ours was quite even. These are not long sites but long and wide enough to easily accommodate our 36 Ft rig and plenty of room to park the car and put out a few chairs. One of our party had a 40 ft rig and they also had plenty of room. Club room and central kitchen facilities were excellent. Staff was friendly and accommodating. Very central location to all the local sites - Montezuma's Castle, Sedona, Jerome, etc. New trees have been planted which may provide shade someday, but not now. Wi-Fi is free and our reception was excellent if a little slow but if this is important try to get a spot close to the office. Outer areas of the park had weak reception. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We pulled in last night and got their last site. Hence, the park feels and looks really packed. Whoever designed this park did some things right and some things wrong. The right things are: They designed the perimeter view sites as pull-ins, so you can actually enjoy the view from your front window. The bad news is: Out of 150 sites only 10 are pull-throughs. The others are tight, short, (barely 42'), and no table. In addition, because the sites are so short, you need to park your tow car on your patio. It's a very clean park, (concrete pads, paved roads, very few trees) they collect your trash daily, it is well located to Sedona as well as easy on/off from the I-17 freeway. You will have a little freeway noise, but not unbearable. We would come back, but only if we could book a pull-through or their pull-in view sites (#'s 35 through 50). We camped here in a Motorhome.
The appearance of this park is great, its location for touring the area is good. The biggest downfall is the close proximity of some of the sites. After we set up we had neighbours back in beside us, the site design placed the back of their 5th wheel so close to our trailer that we could not walk between the two units. As well it is not the easiest sites to back into, we had to cut across the corner of the parking pad, this makes it hard the tires. Who ever designed this park really did not do a good job. Yes they utilized all the space they had available but it places the sites way to close together. For the price you pay at this park it is not really worth it. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Amount reflects monthly rate. Camp is clean and orderly but the sites are very close together. There are concrete pads but they are not necessarily level. No picnic tables and moderate water pressure. If you have a fifth wheel, make sure that you get a site with the site across from you is vacant. That is about the only way you will be able to back in. The hot tub is very nice and the laundry room clean. But this is really like a parking lot camping. Beautiful views to the south if you can see them around the other campers. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This was a tight fit. Not so much for the roads around the park, but the sites are quite close together. You would think you were in a prime location, not in the middle of Arizona high country. Anyway, it is one of two RV parks on I-17, with the other about 40 miles North, so it has a nitch in the market. Plus, it is just across the hiway from an Indian casino. It's clean, neat, water OK, elec OK, sewer at midpoint, a nice pool. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Nice campground, some permanents but nothing really old. For a new campground the sites were not as level as they could be. Our neighbor's slideout wound up be about 1 foot for ours, even though we were on an end of row site. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This place has everything, except picnic tables and shade!!! Clean, secure, no stone roadways or sites, happy campers abound, absolutely no obvious 'permanents'. Loved it, will stay here again when we are in the area. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This park is very clean and the sites are well-maintained. There was a large area to walk our two big dogs. The showers are individual rooms with a toilet and shower; very clean. To use the showers, you need to check-in with the front desk for a key. My only issue is the shower rooms could use stronger fans as they tended to get overheated with little venting. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is a very nice, clean and well maintained RV park. Despite being just off I-17 we felt the road noise was minimal. We had our windows open nearly every day and evening until bedtime and only were aware of the highway when an especially loud truck, car or motorcycle went by. The sites are about average for a commercial campground but they are nicely landscaped. Some hookup pedestals are shared but with the camper who is parked behind you instead of next to you which means the pedestals are on the correct side. Some of the back-in sites are really pull-in sites but those have a nice view of the countryside out of the front window. There are a few W/E only sites but the vast majority are full hook-up. The main building is spacious and contains the usual C-Store (which wasn't stocked during our visit), lounge with a big screen TV, laundry, showers and exercise room. The laundry uses plastic cards which can be purchased at the registration desk (they refund any unused portion) instead of coins. The showers are cleaned after each use. We didn't use the pool but it looked nice. The cable-TV contains only about a dozen channels but it is a nice mix. The Wi-Fi seems adequate although we were parked fairly near the transmit/receive point. The nightly rate of $28 was based on their weekly rate. They are a Good Sam park and usually when you take the weekly rate at a park they do not apply the 10% Good Sam discount. Not here. We got 10% off of the weekly rate! The park is located about 15-miles from a Super Wal-Mart and just about 5-minutes from a Basha's supermarket. Sedona is about a 25-minute ride. We would definitely recommend this park. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Very well run park. Staff friendly and helpful, including the resident managers. Wi-Fi was adequate. Neat and clean. Office hours from 6 am to 9 pm! Some interstate noise, but tolerable. We were very happy. We camped here in a Motorhome.
The park is extremely clean and very well maintained. Roadways in the park are a bit narrow but do-able as were the sites which are all concrete pads but we found where the coach went was a bit narrow for a back in site. Pool area looked great, unfortunately didn't have time to try it! Its an easy access to the interstate 40. Seemed to have a large number of long term campers, very friendly people. Garbage pickup at the sites in the morning. Nice trail area off to the west of the campgrounds for dog walking. We would definitely return here when in the area. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Nice, clean, even a good work out room with weights. BUT - the wide sites are laid out in such a strange manner. The rig in the row behind actually winds up being about 5' from the side of your rig. Wide to park your towed vehicle on one side but REAL close on the other side. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is one of those parks you come across just once in awhile. The park is very clean, neat and well maintained. The staff is well informed about the park and the surrounding area. We started to stay for three days and ended up staying for a week. We were charged the weekly rate (last night free) so we were very pleased. We would recommend this Park to anyone looking for a Park that is one or two steps above most highly rated Parks. Within 30-45 minutes of major attractions and sight-seeing. Casino just five minutes away. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Being that this park is one of our favorites, we decided to spend Thanksgiving there. It is still very clean & the staff very friendly. We were pleasantly surprised to see the level of cleanliness is still excellent. Usually as a park matures, the upkeep tends to deteriorate. Not so at this park. Had no problem parking our fifth wheel. We got a nice wide open space further down towards the casino. Aside from a boisterous person in a small fifth wheel across from us, it was quiet most of the time. I'm not sure if he was a park employee or what? Overall our stay was very nice & the grandkids had a blast hiking the trail across the street from the park's entrance. We'll definitely keep coming back to this beautiful RV park. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
We stayed here for a full week and felt as if we had discovered a great "secret" campground. The location was perfect for visiting Sedona, Cottonwood and Jerome. Cliff Castle Casino is just across highway. The facilities were spotless and modern. The sites were well landscaped and offered concrete parking pads as well as excellent privacy. This campground has been added to our "favorites"! We camped here in a Motorhome.
Nice park. Three types of sites. Pull throughs, Pull ins, and back ins. All sites are paved. Pull throughs are long but narrow. Back ins are a good choice if you are disconnecting. On the south end are a few pull ins for motorhomes which over look the valley. Wi-Fi worked well at my site (close to office). Would definitely return again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Real nice place. The sites are paved and landscaped, although they could be a bit larger. Staff very helpful. Only caveat: the exercise room is NOT air conditioned. Fan and open window is your "AC." Heat from laundry room next door aggravates the problem. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Very clean park. Nice staff. Centrally located and easy on and off. It would be nice if they had tables on the patios. Limited pull-throughs, but all sites are paved and somewhat level. We would stop here again. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This is an immaculate park with terrific mountain and Verde Valley views with easy I-17 access. Staff was very accommodating and they take great care in keeping up the park. The only reason I did not give it a 10 is that I found the sites may be just a tiny bit hard to get in to. Otherwise: absolutely no complaints. We had an end pull-through so no maneuvering problems, but I can see if someone has a middle of the row site, and a large rig, it may take a few shots at getting situated. There are only 10 pull throughs in the entire park so if this is vital to you, I would recommend reserving as far in advance as possible or calling before heading out. Pool is a nice size and was super clean as was the spa. We were the only ones in it on both days. It is very close to Cliff Castle casino, (just on the other side of 17) and there are many other fast food and retail establishments just one exit south on 17 (about 3 miles). An easy drive to Cottonwood, National Monument sites and, of course, Sedona!. The back-in spaces on the perimeter of the park (the most southern and western spaces) will give the best views. They do ask that you walk your pets outside the perimeter of the park, but most folks, at night especially, used the grassy areas within the park and were very good at picking up after their pets. Trash is collected at your site daily. Cable and Wi-Fi is free, but the Wi-Fi signal at our site was fair at best. There are also phone hookups. There is also a PC in the office/country store. Would certainly stay again while traveling through the Verde Valley. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
We cannot say enough about this park. The sites were level and paved. Everything about the park was immaculate. The staff was very friendly and helpful. Check-in and out was a breeze as was filling up with LP. This was not a planned stop on our trip, but it will be from now on. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Excellent park. Perfect location as a base camp for Sedona, Cottonwood, Jerome. Whatever you want to go and do it is all within a 30 minute drive or less. Easy access from 1-17. Large paved sites, super nice staff. Pool and jacuzzi were really nice. With temps in the lower 100's, the pool water is very comfortable. If you stay here, be sure to go to Blazin'M Ranch for the cowboy dinner. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This has to be one of the cleanest parks I've seen. It is conveniently located between Sedona & Cottonwood making it very easy to go out to dine or just shop. The amenities are plentiful & well maintained. The showers are spotless as are the laundry room & exercise room. The pool is large & clean along with a nice size jacuzzi. The managers & staff are very friendly & well informed. It is a kid & pet friendly park. The concrete spaces are set far apart with very well maintained landscaping. All spaces are full hook-up, which includes free wifi & free local phone hook up. Propane is available near the office building. This place is a treat to stay at. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Stayed one week . Nice layout with great view . Management allowed a dog run on a site with two large dogs . The dogs barked on at all hours of the night and day. The rule, "Indoor pets accompanied on a leash when outside", was not followed.
We camped here in a Motorhome.
Stayed here a month in site #110, a back in site. Was able to get our 35 ft trailer and HDT in this site. Has an airport across the interstate, with little airplanes flying in and out most mornings. The interstate noise wasn't a problem, but could be for those closer to it. Interior roads are asphalt and sites are concrete. Lots of sites are unlevel side to side, and others front to rear. Pull through sites are very tight. Could be 1 foot from your neighbor's slide out. Site #80, I'd say is the best easy in easy out pull through. Does have cable TV, free Wi-Fi, "free" on site phone line, staff is very friendly and helpful, a very clean campground. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This is a great park and right near the highway so easy to get to Sedona and Jerome and all the other interesting sights. The sites were a good size and there was a area in the back of the park where you could walk your pet. The park was very clean and the garbage was picked up each morning from in front of your RV. The people in the office were very helpful. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This was a very nice, clean park, good location, long paved spaces with a patio, very clean restrooms and laundry and free WIFI that works!! They had garbage pick up every morning at your site. They have a new casino across the highway with shuttle service. Would definitely stay again. Convenient to get to Sedona, Montezuma Castle, etc. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
We stayed here two nights to visit nearby Sedona. I chose this place based on ratings here, and we were not disappointed! This place was immaculate, clean and it really showed that the management cares for the place. The showers/bathrooms are cleaned after every use. The kitchen and clubhouse is very nice and the staff there were friendly. They also have a laundromat and a workout room, as well as a pool and a jacuzzi. The only nitpick would be the odd placement of some utilities in the lot we were in, but fortunately we were able to use the lot next to us. Otherwise the power/water lines would need to be quite long. A minor issue that was by far better than staying in some of the nearby RV parks we had looked at after finding the state park we wanted to stay at was booked. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Distant Drums is an easy access, easy check in, easy park and setup campground. The staff is great and most of the sites have a great view. We enjoyed ourselves thoroughly, and met some wonderful folks. We will absolutely stay there again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
WOW: cleanest resort I've seen. If you use their shower/toilet rooms you log in, get a key. Once you're done they clean the unit. All services are included and work well including cable and site Wi-Fi. Staff is VERY helpful and friendly. Would definitely stay here again. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Don't try the pull-throughs. You can't pull in with your toad attached. The roads are too narrow and the pad is only 10 feet wide. I was on pad 73 and there is a 6 inch drop off the right of the pad which could be an axle buster. Fortunately a fellow camper helped me onto the pad. The back-ins are actually easier to get into. You pay extra for the pull-through and end up with side by side hookups. My neighbor was very close to my hookup side. I stayed here last year in a back-in. It is a clean 'RV Park'. Probably the best in the area. No wi-fi - at least I could not find it. I will stay here again while in the area but I will ask for a back-in. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This park was a delight to visit. It is clean and well managed. The hosts were quite friendly. The spaces are level and paved! Also paved is a space next to the motor home where you can park your tow vehicle. The park is close to a casino which had an outdoor concert the night we stayed. We could hear the music clearly from our campsite and thoroughly enjoyed it. I highly recommend this campground. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is one of the best parks we have ever stayed in. Everything is top notch, including the courteous, friendly staff. The community center is spotless throughoutand includes a complete exercise room. Since this is a fairly new park, the shade trees have not fully developed, but the other landscaping is beautiful. Because of the dryness in this area, it is obvious why there are no fire rings and no fires allowed. Although Rt. 17 is nearby, the traffic noise is minimal. We will recommend this park to whoever we meet and will definitely stay here again. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
We were very happy with our stay here. The pool is clean, and the kids enjoyed it. The showers were spotless. One signs out a key from the desk for a "shower room." It has a lavatory and a shower. There is plenty of room, and it is a nice change from usual CG showers. Our site was level. The park was clean and appealing. The staff was very friendly and helpful with directions. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Visted April 06, very pleased with C/G. This is one of the nicest C/G in the area of Sedona. Would visit again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Very Clean park, however still no picnic tables for fire rings. Some of us would like to sit out at night and talk with friends over a fire and enjoy popping corn or just watching the fire. Having a table to eat at would be nice also. We all don't go there just to gamble. Very expensive place to park your unit and listen to the traffic on I-17. I think this is the last time we will use this park. It is good for overnight stays, just not for weekend get aways. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
What a very nice park. Very clean with paved pull through sites. Very nicely landscaped. Very friendly staff and always ready to help. Laundry room kept very clean with new washer & dryers. Weight room, equipment in perfect condition. Garbage picked up at you site. They have Wifi but only inside their building. We were very impressed with the park. Can not wait to go back. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Free wifi, nice full private bathrooms, helpful friendly staff, free coffee, new park just over 2 years old, right off freeway, good size site, satellite friendly, ATV trail next to park for dog walking. Whiff of sewer smell on occasion but not enough to detract from a 10. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Good new park, with concrete pads. I stayed 2 days. Instant [free] on site phone: but was only live on my neighbors pad. Mine was dead. Lots of staff but not well trained. They had lots of problems with the "computer" when I tried to register for the second day. A local RV dealer had rented all the pull-through sites for a "show" the weekend I was here. So I had to use a back-in, which was OK. I will stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Beautiful park, magnificent views. New so everything is pristine. Lots of amenities. No wi-fi or plans for it. Very easy access to 1-17. Easy drive to Sedona and other small towns nearby. We camped here in a Motorhome.
As someone who is RV'ing 345 days a year, this is one of the very best parks we've been in. The showers were very private and clean, the only drawback is that the showers are only open when the store/office is open. Same thing with the pool/spa. Sites are all concrete and level. This is what all campgrounds should acheive to be like. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This was one of the highlites of a very long trip. I don't understand why Trailer Life only gave it a 5 for visual appeal, as the view is great. We used it as our base to visit Sedona and Montezuma's Castle. I don't know what else someone could ask for in a campground. They have everything and it's all nice. The casino/restaurant's are a short drive across the highway. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Nice new park. Friendly staff. Very clean. Close to I-17 but no real freeway noise. Casino shuttle
will come pick you up. Worth the stop. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Very nice new park just opened in Oct 2003. All sites are paved,large & nicely landscaped. Very friendly staff. The showers are cleaned after each use. Garbage is picked up at each site. This park is just off I-17 about 20 miles south of Sedona. We camped here in a Motorhome.
