Far and away one of the nicest parks we've visited. You cross London Bridge to get here, which is cool. Excellent location and family-oriented. Not at all a party-style park, which is good for us because we visited during Spring Break. Park is very safe, and though pretty full obviously has a lot of respectful visitors and a number of permanent or near-permanent residents. Kids safe to walk or ride bikes alone. Bathrooms rival what you'd find in high end hotel; granite and beautiful tile. Pool and spa area is spectacular. Laundry room was very clean. In fact, everywhere was clean, and I mean Disneyland clean. They have boat launch as well if you've a boat. They don't rent watercraft but we did that in the city near London Bridge. For a visit during springtime this park was awesome. We'd definitely return though it was expensive. If it were 10-20 dollars less per night it'd be a spectacular bargain. As it is, though it's worth it, it is pricey.

This KOA is in carved into essentially a forest in Flagstaff. Sites are dirt/gravel and not too level, requiring adjustment. We had to be careful of trees as we entered and exited sites. Bathrooms and showers very clean and worked very well. Not that it is anyone but nature's fault, when we were there the trees must've been shedding some sort of light sap. Our rigs and tow vehicles looked as though they'd been rained on with the substance. It easily washed off but was annoying. Staff was extremely nice. Despite the sap rain we'd stay here again.

This is the closest KOA to the Grand Canyon, and is MUCH better than staying at the Railroad RV park in Williams--unless you are a fan of freight trains 5x per night blowing whistles and rattling your RV! This park I gave a "7" rating to because while it is convenient, there are flaws. Those flaws do not apply to the staff who work there, they were incredibly nice. Rather the flaws are in the park itself unfortunately. For instance, the sites were not very level, and are all gravel. My feeling is that if you're constructing a park, level out the sites, then add the gravel. Which brings me to the second reason why I downgraded: it was under construction while we were there, and I'm guessing the workers hit a water line somewhere because water pressure throughout the park was minimal to low. Ours so much so that I put water in the tank, and used our pump to get adequate pressure. The restrooms were very clean and seemed to work though the toilets didn't flush well, probably again due to water pressure. Hopefully they'll get things in order, we'd stay here again, but would check first to see if water pressure was working fine.

Facility is easy to get to just north of a residential area in Kingman, which makes the park very quiet. Flat, generally level sites that require minimal rig adjustment. Sites are pretty basic, gravel, which means that some small rocks will join you on your travels into the rig, but no big deal. Restrooms were very nice and clean. We haven't stayed at a lot of KOAs, so this one was really nice in comparison to other parks we've visited. Would definitely stay here again if traveling through this part of AZ.

This review & very poor rating is based on the complete lack of information from the caretakers of this state park. Our group separately phoned twice to verify location and availability. Directions were very poor, second, the park caretaker advised that there were "plenty of spots." When we arrived, it was packed full. Not a single spot to be had anywhere, so we ultimately had to trek next door to the Sandpoint (privately owned park.) I was very disappointed, and wrote a letter of complaint to the Arizona parks as well. There is no excuse for that kind of incompetence. Would never stay here or even try, since they are a first come first serve place, and their own employees haven't a clue whether you'll even have the chance at a spot. Sandpoint next door was great.

Excellent location on the Colo. River, Lake Havasu. Family friendly. Remarkably clean restrooms/showers. Very, very friendly staff. Only glitch was that the staff apparently unaware that Wi-Fi is available in "the View" bar/food area. Barbecues on site serve as fire pit very nicely. Shade is available from the small trees and the patio covers. Park is old, and some parts are run down, but not that bad. Very picturesque area, small but nice beach. Water was very cold, but it's only April. Very good hiking nearby, so you get to experience the water, mountain & desert regions all from the same location. The only downside according to my 9 year old was the swings were not cemented in so you could not swing as high as the kids wanted to.

The Positive: Close to the train depot. Once inside, the shower area was very nice. RV Park was very clean. Ate late night dinner at Spenser's pub, (family friendly by the way,) and that was decent food, excellent minestrone soup. Highly recommend the train to the Grand Canyon, but take First Class, not coach; the difference is Greyhound bus seating versus huge, plush seats with lots of leg room, and free fruit, coffee, water & pastries in the morning, free cheese, crackers, veggies, sodas, water in the evening return. The Negative: The location is horrible. If you like trains, and the noise which accompanies them, such as whistles & ground shaking three times a night, then this is the park for you. No fire rings, and the community fire pit was not operating. Guest service: poor. Our keys did not work on the doors for the restroom/shower/laundry, nor for entry into the fitness & pool areas, though that could've been corrected by registration I suppose. While we enjoyed the train, we'd never stay here again due to noise level. Rate of $30 is an estimate--part of a package included train tickets.

Excellent location, 5 mi to Meteor Crater itself. Also nearby is a stretch of old Route 66 for those feeling nostalgic. Showers/Restrooms were large & exceptionally clean. Customer service was outstanding; we arrived late and called the 1-800 number, and security personally came to the gate & let us in. Very nice staff, small store, good playground area for the kids. Excellent value, would definitely stay here again. Would've rated a 10 but wife took a shower late in the a.m. & the water was not as hot as desired, but then again it was late.
