Where do we start? We knew there was construction going on at the park, but when we arrived there was only a sign with a phone number to call to register. What they needed was a sign that told motorhomes not to proceed further, or they couldn't turn around without great difficulty. After we called to register, we were given a space and told to walk to the office to pay after we set up. We were about a third of the way into setting up, when a young man showed up at our coach, wanting to know if we had paid yet. We had reservations, and we called, so what was the rush? At the front desk we were told there was no internet or cable, yet they still charged the full price, even though we would have to put up with all the construction and traffic. Huh?!?!? One of the park employees drove so fast, and insisted on passing the construction equipment at a high rate of speed, that he almost took out my wife and two small dogs. When we complained about this, we were met with a shrug of the shoulders. As we understand it, this park has been bought by a church. The main building will house the church, but they will still have limited RV spaces and the hotel. They had better wise up fast about how to run an RV park and treat their customers, or it will be a short run. We will definitely never stay here again. We camped at Life Northwest RV & Lodging (formerly River Life Resort) in a Motorhome.

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 at Distant Drums RV Resort in a Motorhome.

I don't know who gave this park such high reviews, but we had a very different experience. We tried to get reservations a couple days before the park opened, and it was like pulling teeth to get ahold of anyone. When we arrived, we were parked on dusty red gravel, which blew constantly, and left our rig, dogs, and shoes filthy everytime we went outside. The first day, as my wife sat at the computer inside our rig, a tractor, that was setting picnic tables at the sites, pulled up outside our front window, where the driver peered inside, and beckoned my wife outside with the crook of his finger. She came and got me, after being startled by this. When I went outside, I was told to move our toad so that the picnic table could be set up at our site. Why wasn't the campground prepared prior to the first day of opening? And is that the proper way to get the attention of a guest? The campground has tons of rules, which can be a good thing, but not here. One of the rules stated that we couldn't use a ladder or step stool at our rig, as we might sue the campground if we were injured. Our rear view camera was intermittent, so that rule was not complied with! There are no facilities to speak of, and you are instructed not to walk your dog outside the confines of the campground. The hosts were not friendly, and we thought the park very overpriced. We will not stay here again under any circumstances. We camped at J & H RV Park (55 + Park) in a Motorhome.
