An older park built before the days of big rigs. It is in no way big rig friendly. We had one of the longest sites (a pull-in). At 44' our nose was up against the embankment while our Jeep was parked sideways behind the rig with part of the Jeep sticking out into the access road (even with it so close you could barely get out the driver's door). Asphalt access roads (mostly narrow). Mix of pull thrus, back-ins, and pull-ins. Sites are gravel and relatively level. Back-ins and pull-ins share a utility pedestal. Our site was trashy with dozens of cigarette butts scattered over the site. Power ok, water 50psi, sewer ok. Wifi good signal and with fluctuating speed (between crawling and 5.5 Mbps). However note that password is tower dependent so if you can't get in, verify with the office you have the password that matches the tower. We will not be back.

Decent campground for overnight stays. Convienent access from US 60, asphalt access roads with gravel sites in the new area (where transients go). Power ok, did not use other utilities. Wifi very strong signal and amazing speed (21.5 Mbps). We will stay here again for an overnight or longer.

For a metropolitan location, it is a relatively quiet campground except for the Deer Valley Airport (western departure is almost directly overhead). Lots of general aviation activity during the day, but mostly dies out in the evening. Only noticed the occasional I-15 traffic (and only when the wind was from the west), but we were on the side furthest from the highway. Very tight for big rigs in the front section. Checkin parking requires maneuvering thru front section with 4 relatively tight turns. With big rig, park on Williams Drive outside park, drop toad, walk to office to checkin, then bring rig in. This makes for a mostly straight shot to back area where big rig sites are located. Level gravel sites with concrete patios and some vegetation. Asphalt access roads, but might not be wide enough for two rigs to pass. Getting into sites in back may be complicated by sewer connections inset from rest of utilities and sites at 90 degrees to road. Power ok, water 80psi, sewer ok (but elevated so may be difficult to get a slope), sewer supports mandatory (AZ law), wifi tengo - adequate for web browsing and email, but not much else (this with the paid 30 day premium access). Verizon LTE variable from 1 to 3 bars, but adequate data speeds.

No major changes since our last visit, but it is not as good as past visits. Good asphalt access roads with gravel sites. Depending upon landscaping, can be difficult entry - very narrow between utility pedestals and concrete patio made worse by a tree very close on inside of turn into space. We ended up with 12" between utility pedestal and slides on one side and 12" between tires and patio curb. Major slope towards front of site - front wheels off the ground. Parking pad for car off end of patio, but not usable for us since our door and slides overlapped parking pad. Power ok, did not use other utilities. Wifi has significant connectivity issues including frequent disconnects, sluggish performance, dns (address resolution) to login servers mis-configured and erratic. Strong Verizon signal with good data rates. We've stayed here multiple times, but we'll probably investigate alternatives the next time we're in the area.

Pretty typical koa. Entry road has some good sized potholes. Decent gravel access roads - bi-directional, but not wide enough for two rigs to pass. Good width on the pullthrus, but not long enough to avoid dropping the toad on anything longer than 38' or so. Our site was relatively level. Relatively quiet given highway proximity. Power ok, did not use other utilities. Wifi decent signal strength, but unable to get connection. Moderate Verizon signal with adequate data rate. We would stay here again for an overnight.

Good desert campground right on the highway. Noticeable road noise during the day which is mostly gone by evening. Decent gravel access roads with relatively wide gravels sites. Our site was long enough for 37' plus connected toad. Longer than 40' might need to drop toad. Site sloped slightly towards front, but not so much. that the tires left the ground. Power ok, did not use other utiliies. Wifi decent strength and speed. We will stay here again for an overnight.

A typical southwestern gravel campground. Good sized gravel access roads with really long pull thrus. Level gravel sites. A few trees, but not a lot of shade anywhere. Power ok. Wifi ok - not terribly speedy, but not bad for a campground, occasional disconnects. Verizon signal 4 bars with decent data speed. Did not use other utilities. We will stay here again for an overnight (or for a short stay for visiting the national park) when in the area.

A tired looking koa. Mostly gravel with scattered trees and some struggling spots of grass here and there. Access roads a touch on the narrow side, might be problematic for anything 40' or longer. Pull thru sites are short (37' plus toad sticks out into the access road). Not really a big rig friendly campground. Right up against the BNSF transcon with a lot of trains going by (17 in 3 hrs), but at least they don't blow their horns. Power ok. Wifi good signal strength, but abysmally slow. Did not use other utilities. Verizon cell was 2 to 3 bars LTE, but were unable to get a data connection. We will look elsewhere when needing an overnight in the area.

Excellent resort - peaceful, well landscaped, very friendly staff and residents, quick access to the strip. This is a relatively large, gated ownership resort with approximately 75% of the sites sold (they did not push on buying a lot). All sites are concrete backins with privacy barriers (hedges mostly) between each site. Plenty of room for 37' coach with toad parked in front of the coach. Ownership sites in the rental pool have upgraded amenities (at an upgraded price). Five pool / hot tub / shower / laundry areas distributed across the resort. Last time was very quiet (we were on an inner space), this time was a bit louder but still relatively quiet as we were on an exterior site. Power ok, water 65psi, sewer ok. They have recently replaced their Tengo internet (which was stable and fast for a Tengo connection) with LV.net. iPhone, iPad, and Android phone could not see the network when more than 6 spaces from the tower. Router with high gain antennae never managed to get connected in a week despite repeated calls to LV.net. Decent Verizon signal strength and data speed. We will stay here again when in the Las Vegas area.

Gravel campground with lots of trees. Seemed to be mostly permanent / long term residents. Access roads are OK, but tight in places for larger rigs with trees needing to be trimmed. This really should not be marked as a big rig friendly park. Some sites are accessible only by leaving the campground and going back in a different entrance. The pull-through we were in was too short for a 37’ motorhome with toad (we hung out on both ends). Site was also fairly narrow with a relatively high electric pedestal near the front. We ended up with the right side of the coach up on the concrete patio in order to clear the utility pedestals on the left. Power OK, cable OK, Wi-Fi very good for a campground until all the residents came back to the campground in the early evening. Did not try the other utilities. We will look elsewhere for an overnight due to the accessibility issues.

A lovely park like campground. Gravel access roads and sites with lots of trees. Sites mostly level and spacious with grassy areas. Picnic table at all sites, some sites with fixed grills, portable fire pits on request. Gorgeous during fall color, but problematic for satellite access (at least the roof mounted variety). Far enough from I-70 to avoid most of the highway noise. Some of the sites require careful maneuvering to get in and out, but we had no problems with a 37’ motorhome with attached toad. Trees trimmed well for clearance. Power ok, water 42psi, sewer ok, cable good, wifi good with some slowdowns when park was full in the early evening. Verizon cell strength was highly variable (1 to 4 bars). Did not check the bandwidth as the campground wifi was good enough to avoid using our hotspot. Under new ownership in 2014. We will stay here again when in the area.

A decent overnight stop. Gravel sites with reasonable gravel access roads. Not overly long pull thrus, so dropping the toad is most likely necessary. Sites wide enough to park the toad next to the rig. Power ok, did not use water or sewer. Wifi was not working the night we were there - decent signal, but would not hand out IP address. Decent Verizon signal strength and bandwidth. We will consider looking for alternatives for an overnight in the area since this campground does have the negative of having to drop the toad.

A good job adapting to the desert environment. Mostly gravel sites with good gravel access roads - although we did see a 45’ tag having some issues, but they came down the roads the wrong way and after dark. Pull thrus long enough to avoid having to drop the toad. Trees and some grass in the campground (grass mostly on the western end). Picnic tables at each site. Fire pit on request. 50A power was having some problems - very intermittent out of balance legs (up to 15v spread) with reverse polarity. Owner was very involved, but frustrated with the intermittent nature of the problem. We spent most of the stay on 30A (which was stable). Water good (60 psi), sewer ok, but connection was a bit recessed so hooking in sewer elbow was problematic. Wifi was very good for a campground - stable with good signal strength and mostly good bandwidth (occasional slowdowns). Verizon signal strength was 5 bars. Did not test the bandwidth since the campground wifi was good enough to not need our hotspot. Flies were a bit of a problem (1st half of October) since the field of melons next to the campground was plowed under in late September. The best thing going for this campground is it’s proximity to the San Rafael Swell and the staff. We will stay here again when in the area.

A nice campground with a mix of transient and ownership sites. Asphalt access roads with level gravel sites. Access roads are comfortably wide for a single rig, but not wide enough for two rigs to pass. Most sites are slightly narrow pull thrus (about the length of picnic table between rigs). Each site in the transient area has a concrete pad with picnic table and fixed grill and a tree (mostly Crabapples). We were able to comfortably fit a 37’ class A plus our toad in the site. Some minor puddling on the access roads after rain, but there was enough gravel in the sites to avoid puddling and mud. Power ok, water ok, sewer ok (some sites have the sewer connection recessed enough to cause issues hooking up a sewer elbow). No issues with satellite access. Wifi was ok in signal strength and bandwidth (most of the time), but only for e-mail and casual browsing. We did occasionally have to resort to our hotspot to avoid frustrating page load times. Verizon signal was 3 to 4 bars with reasonable bandwidth. We will stay here again when in the area.

A nice campground set back against bluffs with lots of mature trees. Reasonable gravel access roads, mostly level gravel sites with grassy areas. Most sites had a picnic table along with a fixed grill shared between a pair of sites. There are three different areas in the campground. The back area looks to be the oldest and is completely shaded. This area has the smaller sites although we did see some 45’ class A’s squeezed into some of the sites. The area north of the entrance road has larger sites in a more open area with some shading. These sites can handle 45’ class A’s, but the toads for these rigs tended to be parked in the road going between the rows of sites. This may make it interesting to maneuver. The area south of the entrance road has the largest sites - easily long enough for a 45’ class A plus toad. Seemed to be a bit more shaded that the north area, but much less than the back area. The south area does have a couple of curves on the access road that require a slight amount of extra caution. The pullthrus were alternating so two sites shared a common set of utilities. Also the back ins alternate with "pull ins” - again sharing a common set of utilities. A wonderful 2 acre off-leash dog area is in the front of the park. As noted in some other reviews, this park does have major issues with heavy rainfall. After a spell of dry weather (so the grounds were basically completely dry), we had heavy rain all night - at least several inches. The next morning most of the campground was flooded. They did have people out with portable pumps that morning to get rid of the worst of it, but 3 days of sunshine later there were still major issues with water - especially the area north of the entry road. This area had so much water that people were walking on the picnic table benches to get into their rigs. Some sites in the north area had as much as a foot of standing water (3 days after the rain). The back area seemed mostly dried out after 3 days. The area south of the entry road was sort of in between - grassy areas like a soaked sponge and a fair bit of mud. Puddles remained on many of the access roads. This park would probably be a 9 if they invested in enough gravel to mitigate the drainage issues. There was some highway noise in the front park of the park - mainly in the early evening. Power was ok, water was 58 psi, sewer ok. Did not use the cable. Satellite access was fine in the south area and probably in the north area; problematic in the back area. Wifi strength was good with mostly decent bandwidth except in the early evening with a full park at which time the bandwidth was zilch. Verizon signal was 3 bars with adequate, but not great bandwidth. We will stay here again when in the area (just hopefully avoiding any heavy rainfall).
