Very small RV park with about 20 sites. Some are pull-through and most are long enough to allow a fifth wheel or toad to remain hooked up. This place was very clean and well maintained and is right on the river making it exceptionally peaceful. Each site had a new or recently refinished picnic table. Even though it is right next to the road that was not at all noticeable from our site. Both the Mens and Womans facilities were single seaters making for lines in the morning. There was also only a single shower in each and the laundry contained a single washer and dryer. The wifi, for me, was unuseable. The signal was mostly below 80 dbm (one bar or less) and kept fading in and out. The wifi router's were set to not assign IP addresses so the only thing you could do was surf the general web. My bet is that the three wifi routers that were visible were only desktop devices intended for covering a room or two and not intended for use outside the building they were in. The cable TV coverage was outstanding, delivering 60 or so channels but nothing local. Verizon cell was borderline weak and my Galaxy 6 kept switching between 3g and 4g which was disruptive to my using it as a hotspot. The downside is the owner/manager was very domineering and overbearing. I might have met a more obsessive control freak at some time in my 72 years but I really cant remember when. It made what could have been a very enjoyable 5 star stay very unpleasant. The guys adversarial and confrontational attitude escalated one or two trivial situations into unnecessary conflict. You cant sugar coat rudeness and disrespect with "Sir", "Please", and "Thank You's"; rude is still rude and completely uncalled for.

The single most expensive RV Campground I have ever stayed at. Wouldn't have given this place a second glance but due to local events all other campgrounds were full and the place where I did have reservations was overbooked. About half the sites at Fireside are ridiculously narrow and close together. I got one of those :( We were so close to our neighbor on the passenger side that we couldn't put the awning out. And on the other side it was either put our slider out or the neighbor on that side put out his awning. We compromised by having him only put his awning out halfway. Pretty sad site design. There were sites crammed into every nook and cranny and many were much worse than ours. I never before had to consider just how unpleasant it is to have to listen to the trickle of running sewage because the neighbors dump hose was only 5 feet from our front door. The little grass patches between sites was deceptively uneven and riddled with potholes. I ended up turning an ankle bad enough to cause me discomfort for the next week or two. This place did have the best wifi we encountered on this trip. The signal strength average, as reported by network stumbler, was more than -50 dbm (very strong - about 4-5 solid bars) and the network speed that was achievable averaged 60 mbs. Cell phone, on the other hand, was pathetic. This is Verizon territory and the best I could get was -75 dbm (1 bar or less) and there was a lot of dropout. Couldn't use my Verizon hotspot. Definitely wouldn't stay here again and wouldn't recommend this place to any family or friends.

Very pleasant park. Spaces are fairly close together but not unpleasantly so. most are pull through and we stayed hooked up to our 27' overnight with no trouble. I would have rated this park higher but its right next to the freeway and the noise IS very intrusive without relenting. The office staff was so pleasant and helpful and we couldnt ask for nicer. The wifi signal was strong but the fastest my WiFi Stumbler recorded was 18Mbs with the average down around 5Mbs. Either older equipment or else the network was just plain busy and my gear was having trouble getting its slice. Verizon cell phone was 3-4 bars 4g and 5 bars 3g.

Very pleasant and helpful staff. Small park shaped like a horseshoe with the permies around the perimeter and all the transient spaces are drivethrough down the middle. These spaces were well mailtained, with clean and raked pea gravel. The spaces were some of the widest I have ever seen and were long enough to stay hooked up with a 30' fifth wheel with room to spare. The permanent resident units were all well maintained and didnt have any of the usual clutter. Nice pool helps with the notorious Kingman summer heat. TV had lots of clear channels and the wifi was strong and fast enough for Pandora. Only downside is that the sites could all use more shade or I would have given this place a 10.

Delightful small park. Very clean and well ordered. Kind of hard to find - be sure and set your gps for lat/lon coordinates. Sites were level and drive-through. Most had shade and all had picnic tables, water, and electric. No TV here and the wifi didnt work the night we were there but the location was so quiet and peaceful that we didnt miss the wifi one bit. Staff was very friendly and helpful. Wouldnt hesitate to recommend this place to all my F&F.

Beautiful Setting in the tall pines next to or near a private lake, depending on which campground (there are 5 or 6 different camping areas). The campng pads are as well spaced as any park I have ever been to and are mostly level. As I drive around I don't see anybody with more than two yellow leveling blocks. The bathrooms are sparsely spaced - generally one to each camping area. Ours was quite a hike but was Very clean and fairly new. However, there was only one commode and 2 showers. Fishing in the private lake was great and I saw some two or three pounders come out (none for me though). There are no sewer hookups or I would have rated this place a 9 or 10. There is also no camp provided WiFi. Bring your hotspot though as I had no trouble getting 3-4 bars on 3G. It was really a slow connection though... not fast enough for video streaming but Pandora and XM streamed just fine. OpenSignal.com reported 775kb download and 885kb upload. The camp store is pathetic.

Great place for an over night. Right on Hgwy 50 but the traffic dwindled to nothing early in the evening. Laundry was clean and functional. Pleasant place with grass between all campsites and a large grassy area in the middle for the grand kids to play. Staff was friendly and helpful. We would stay here again.

Well manicured park that is clean and pleasant. The hot tub was the most popular place during these October evenings. Sites are gravel and mostly level, but really close together. The entire park is right on the main highway and close to a major intersection with a stoplight. You hear highway traffic all night long and in the early morning hours the local diesels all use their jake brakes for the stoplight, so it is really super loud. TV signal is occasionally flaky and the internet totally sux. Internet is one of those syndicated park services that limit your usage. It was amazingly slow and I kept getting disconnected even though we were not doing any streaming or heavy traffic. The front office was very pleasant and helpful. They hooked us up with tours and such that we later figured out were indeed the best of the lot. Sadly, we would not stay here again - mostly due to the high traffic noise, but also because of the crappy Internet service.

Nice park, really clean grounds with grass between all the sites. Sites are gravel and are more than long enough to accommodate a large 5th wheel and its tow vehicle. This is the only park in the area that claims TV hookups; however, our site only received 21 stations with no TV channel card or TV Guide. Also my reception was really poor with noise lines and a flaky picture and the best my HDTV could do with the signal was 480P. Then too the Wi-Fi was only marginally useful. My site kept dropping out and when it was connected it was so slow it was useless. I did a speed test and got .08MB download after the third try. Again, it was only slightly better than nothing. I don't think I would stay here again.

We camped here during the government shutdown after being kicked out of the campgrounds at Grand Canyon Village inside the NP. There is very little shade over most spots and not very much formal landscaping. Many of the lots are overgrown with weeds and some kind of thistles that stuck to our dogs coats. It was fairly noisy during the day because it is right under the helicopter and airplane main flyways for the airport about a half mile away. (That was only a problem during the day.) The for-pay showers that other campers reported are now gone - they have been replaced by simple shower curtains. Haven't used them yet so don't know about the water temp stability. There is no TV and no radio stations unless you bring a satellite dish, but I am typing this over the campground WiFi so no complaints about that. My own FreedomPop hotspot can't get enough of a signal to do DNS resolution so the campground WiFi comes to the rescue of connecting me to the outside world. $51.00 per night for 30 amp full hookups is way too high. That is what I would expect to pay for a fully landscaped park with paved roads and all the amenities. They really need to price more reasonably.!
