Yes, it is a parking lot and sites are close, but it is on the northern end of the Strip, and many of the casino resorts are within walking distance. Some sites have trees and patios, which makes those sites feel more spacious. We were on the outer edge of the campground, where there was quite a bit of traffic and train noise. If I were to stay here again, I would ask for a site closer to the office where the traffic noise isn't as evident. The campground isn't too far off I-15, very convenient.

This campground is under new ownership and there are many improvements in progress. Sites are spacious and level, campground is clean and attractive. Roads are paved, gravel sites with concrete patios. Water, power, and sewer were all good, although all are at the back of the site. All sites are back-in, pull-throughs to be available soon. Fitness room to come, not here yet. On-site restaurant is very good, and the associated winery has many award-winning wines. There will be a heliport! This campground is wonderfully quiet at night, and there are lots of stars in the sky including those of the Milky Way. We would absolutely stay here again.

This park is clean and attractive with paved interior roads and gravel sites. Each site has a small tree and picnic table, is spacious and level. Power and sewer were good, water pressure a little uneven. Satellite TV reception was fine, AT&T cell had five bars but no Internet, Verizon Wi-Fi dropped occasionally. I gave this park a 9 because of freeway noise and trucks using their engine brakes to slow down for the truck stop. I used ear plugs to sleep. I would stay here again, with ear plugs.

A fine RV park in the foothills east of Phoenix. It is very clean and level. Paved interior roads with asphalt and gravel sites. I gave this park a 9 because there are no picnic tables, grills, or landscaping at the sites. We had no problems with power, water, or sewer. Satellite TV is fine, no obstructions. AT&T cell reception is good, Verizon Wi-Fi drops frequently. Pool and spa are nice, although starting to show their age - tiles could use a thorough cleaning. Fitness room is excellent, as is the club room. There is highway noise at night, although not too bad. Location is close to Mesa and Scottsdale. Seems to be a few degrees cooler than Phoenix, a good thing during the summer months. We chose to stay here because we did not want to stay in one of the huge RV parks with 55+ seasonals and innumerable activities. We were here just a few days for sightseeing, and this campground was perfect. We would definitely stay here again.

This campground is set at the foot of a hill and is surrounded by national forest. The pine trees in the campground offer shade. There are really two parts to this campground - tents and small trailers are placed at the front, with lots of trees, quite lovely. Larger trailers and motorhomes are placed at the back, with fewer trees. These sites are close together and somewhat unlevel (some more than others). We first picked site #152. It is a lovely site, spacious with a patio and furniture, in the NE corner. Unfortunately, when we tried to level in our 40' motorhome, the front wheels were at least 15" off the ground. We decided to move. The person in the office told me that site 152 was better suited to vehicles 36' or under, which I imagine is true. It was the drop-off towards the front of our RV that was the problem. Beautiful site though, right next to the national forest. It is the "superest" of the supersites. The other supersites are on the ends of the RV rows. Most are relatively level, and are a little more spacious than the regular sites. We moved to a regular site, which was fairly level although we did have to put blocks under the back left tires. It was one of the narrowest of sites however, and we had to push the picnic table up a slight hill to make room for our RV. My husband had to move back and forth to get into the site, and the people behind us had to move their parked car out of the way. Upon leaving, my husband drove into the site in front of us (which was fortunately empty), because it was easier to turn out of. Once settled we were fine. We were able to receive satellite TV (not possible at several of the sites). AT&T cell phone worked fine. Verizon data service worked well at certain times of day (morning) but dropped often in the evenings. Location was good, close to everything, easy on/off of I-40. Traffic and train noise was not bothersome. The sewer connection was not threaded, which made us a little uneasy. Staffers were helpful and friendly enough. There are other campgrounds in the area, but they were either booked or closing for the winter when we arrived. I might have given it a lower score, except the location is good.

This isn't the nicest RV park we have stayed in. The paved roads could use some work, and the sights are close together. The paved roads could use repair. Water and electric hookups work fine. We were told to use the sewer hose only when needed to dump, because apparently the ravens like to punch holes in them. Go figure. Sites are level. AT&T cell phones did not work in the campground, but did work at the Grand Canyon Village. Verizon Wi-Fi worked intermittently, best in the mornings for some reason. TV satellite reception was fine, and would be at most sites. We had no problem navigating to our site in our 40' motorhome. The big positive is location, location, location! It is a 15 minute walk to the canyon rim, and 10 minutes to the grocery store, cafeteria, and lodge. The shuttle bus stops at the campground every 7 minutes. We would definitely stay here again.

The sign at the campground entrance says "Wahweap Campground", making it a little confusing. The view is amazing. Campers look across the lake at stark rock formations. The campground and the view were both beautiful. We were assigned to Loop A #17. The site was spacious and level. Water, electric, and sewer worked fine. Roads and sites are paved with gravel sites for picnic tables. I loved the natural landscaping. AT&T and Verizon were both very poor, working intermittently only. It rained while we were here, which caused no problems. I am glad we were not in Loop D, the newer area. The sites there are much closer together. We will absolutely return to this campground again.

Very clean, well-manicured. Paved roads, level concrete pads, small trees, grass, gravel for picnic tables. Turns a little tight for a 40' RV, but we managed. Very nice camp store and gift shop. 15-20 minutes from Springdale and Zion entrance. Some highway noise at night, but not bad. AT&T cell worked well. Verizon Wi-Fi was non-existent. Swimming pool and spa were very clean. I explained we would like satellite TV reception, and was asked if the dish was at the front, middle or back of RV! First time I have ever been asked that, and they knew right where to put us. One comment - we first tried to approach the campground via UT-9 from the east, but turned around at the park entrance because we didn't realize they close the tunnel to oncoming traffic for large vehicles, and charge $15 to do it. We decided to go the long way around to avoid this. We later followed a bus through the 1-mile tunnel in our car, and it didn't seem too bad for the bus although it had to straddle the center line. Tour buses seem to do it routinely. We would absolutely stay in this RV park again. It felt very much like a resort.

We enjoyed this campground. Panguitch is a charming community in a beautiful valley. This is a good base camp for Bryce and Red Canyons and other parks. The owners were extremely helpful and very accommodating. Water pressure and 50 amps worked well. The roads and sites are gravel, which can be dusty when dry. Sites are fairly level, pointed downhill a bit. Most sites are shaded, but we were able to receive satellite TV on our end site. Our AT&T cells worked fine, as well as Verizon WiFi. Very quiet at night. We would definitely stay here again.

We wanted to go to the trilobite quarry, and this was the only RV park in the area. Staff was very helpful. Interior paved road with gravel sites. Some sites shaded, pull-thus have no landscaping and are close together. Entire campground is very level. Water and 50amps worked fine. There was plenty of room for our 40' motorhome, but we stayed late in the season so the campground was only half full. Highway and train noise were not bad at night. We would stay here again.

Date of Stay:

This park is very clean and attractive. Staff was helpful. Roads are dirt and sites are gravel. 50amps and water pressure are good. The sites are short and turns can be tight. Sites are level. We have a 40' motorhome and as far as I could tell there were only one or two sites that could accommodate our length, so I am glad we called in advance. Despite trees we were able to receive satellite TV, but not all sites would have this capability. Attractions are close by. Highway and train noise at night were not a problem. I would stay again if the same site was available.

This is a clean and well-managed RV park. It is a parking lot, yes, but most visitors seemed to stay only for one night, and the operation is efficient. Roads and sites are gravel, but easily navigable. We were guided to our site. 50amps and water were fine. No shade at all, very little landscaping. AT&T worked well, but Verizon was slow and dropped frequently. Our site was almost level. Some highway noise. We would stay here again for an overnight stay.

Date of Stay:

Very urban park, but close to everything. Sites a little tight. There are trees, but we were able to get satellite TV. AT&T and Verizon worked well. 50amps and water pressure were good. Internal roads and sites are asphalt, with picnic tables on grass. Helpful staff. Train whistles are frequent, but not too loud. We would stay here again for the campground's central location and convenience.

I have mixed feelings about this campground. It was fine as far as utilities go (amps and water), but it did seem a little run down. For example, there were weeds growing up through the gravel everywhere. Also, most of the sites were very close together. We stayed in a premium site, which is larger than the others, and I am glad we did. That said, the other campgrounds in the area are tightly spaced as well, and are closer to the main road. This KOA campground at least has a buffer, provided by the swimming pool, between the highway and the sites. It seems that during the summer there are many activities - trail rides, swimming, breakfasts, and so on. These were all closed for the season when we stayed here. I like that the campground feels like it is out in the country rather than in town.

I loved this campground. Nice layout, friendly staff. Very clean. We met people who return to this campground every year. Attractive. Very quiet at night. Most sites are shaded, but a few sites are open enough to have good satellite TV reception (as was ours). The office/store is interesting - antiques are sold here, as well as supplies. I would definitely return to this campground if in the area.
