This was the oddest CG we've stayed at. First, the good news. The scenery is spectacular. From there it goes downhill very fast. It mainly caters to boaters, fishermen and tent campers. RVs, especially motorhomes, are an afterthought. There are only 5 FHU sites and all can be reserved online. If you're a transient, your chances of getting a FHU for more than 1 night are slim. We chose to dry camp to avoid hassles but most of the sites are too small or too sloped for a small 30' moho. EVERY site is slanted AND canted. Even with levelers, it was tough to get level. The employees are pleasant but not very effective. I saw at least 6 dogs roaming off leash. The girl at the gate didn't seem too clear on which sites were available. Most of the rules seem to be recommendations.

Contrary to prior reviews, we found several problems with this campground. The road noise in July is very bad. Utah 12 is the main road to Bryce Canyon NP, just 10 miles up the road. It's uphill and all the road warriors have their foot into the accelerator, causing their engines the whine, scream, or roar. At times, our 31' motorhome was literally rattling. To make things worse, their water system was broken so the advertised showers, flush toilets, fresh water, and dump station were unavailable. The host was very pleasant but things were clearly broken above her pay grade. The site is asphalt.

As others have reported, lots of rules but not strident. Good, clean "mini-laundry" open all night (as opposed to full laundry that closed early evening.) A bit expensive for an overnight.

This is an outstanding campground for those who don't need/want utilities. There's water at each (very clean) vault toilet, but filling RVs is discouraged. The driveways and pads are all asphalt (note: can't select asphalt in Site Surface) so there's hardly any dust. There are Ponderosa pines all around that cut down wind but allow enough sunlight so solar panels work fine. The campground is just 1.6 miles north of I-40 so it's convenient for an overnight stay vs the hassle of checking into a commercial campground . The hosts are helpful and personable except one blowhard who's annoying but harmless. There's a dump station at Love's Truck Stop 4 miles west on I-40. They also have good fuel prices, propane, a tire shop if you need it and, of course, fast food.

Nice park with lots of rules. Staff seems pleasant enough. The shower stalls are clean but the one curtain I touched felt slimy. Didn't investigate further. I liked the clean, well kept utility connections. They didn't have any Passport America sites (whatever that means) so they put us in a "Deluxe" site. I can't see any difference other than the extra $10 they charged us. There's no mention of PA vs Deluxe sites on either the park's website or the PA site. Personally, I think it's just a "Revenue Improvement Plan Offering Frivolous Features" (aka rip off) but we were tired an needed a place for a few days.

Great small park for an overnight or possibly a few days in Kingman. Not a resort but very convenient on/off from I-40, Exit 52. Pleasant office staff and clean grounds. There were a number of permanents but their rigs were well kept and didn't detract from the park. One negative is that the utilities are at the very back of the site so even a 20ft sewer hose was too short for our rig. Also, the trees don't provide a lot of shade.

Overall, park was a good value for what we wanted, a place to stay for two nights while we attended events in Tempe. Best feature was a high-pressure air hose. I checked and adjusted all tires before leaving. Thanks for that nice feature. Workkamper staff were friendly and helpful but front office staff is clueless about RVs and RV terminology. As we prepared to leave, my 20ft hose didn't reach the pipe so I asked for directions to the dump station. Discovered "dump" to the kid in the front office meant trash dumpster. Park doesn't have dump station. Circled park twice before backing into an empty space with a more convenient sewer pipe.

The manager is what keeps us returning when we need to be in Yuma. She's a no-nonsense but pleasant lady who is always accommodating. She had maintenance cut back a tree at the back of our space to prevent it scratching our rig. Yes, the grounds and facilities are old and a bit run-down but, overall, you can't beat it for convenience and price. The only thing that concerns me are the kids from the trailer park next door who wander through from time to time.

My evaluation is for an overnight stay enroute home. This place is a great value. We did laundry in their very clean machines and checked out their very nice bathroom/shower facilities but didn't use them. There are some decrepit permanent trailers in the front section but the area is well policed and hidden by shrubs. All the transient sites are pull through. The utility posts are clean, well maintained and embedded in small concrete pads. All the sites appear to be very level gravel and the sight out the front of the rig is beautiful. There's no WiFi but that's not a biggie for us. There weren't many others in the CG but it could get a bit tight when it's full. Access into and out of the CG is easy. It's only a 9 because it's not the best overnight CG we've stayed at but it's pretty close.

Date of Stay:

We stayed 5 days with a group. The only things this place has going for it are views and a decent restaurant. Otherwise, showers and bathrooms are gross, sites are tight & uneven, staff was invisible, power was sketchy (<110v), water bibs were caked in mineral deposits, making it nearly impossible to get a tight connection, advertised WiFi was MIA and gas was >$1.50 more than Stovepipe Wells. In the future, we'll dry camp at Stovepipe Wells and drive over Towne Pass to eat at the Panamint Springs Restaurant. I'd say here again if I had to be near some event on the west side of DV but not as a first choice.

Date of Stay:

Great park with outstanding staff. We stop here to dump and do laundry. The manager and the work camper are very helpful and friendly. For less than 3 nights, electricity is $3 extra per night. Otherwise, they read a meter on the site.

Date of Stay:

No services but it's great for those of us who like quiet and solitude. Lots of room between sites. Petroglyphs are interesting but limited to just one outcropping of rocks.

Date of Stay:

Nice NPS CG if you're seeking quiet and solitude. Generators are limited to 8AM to 10AM and 4PM to 6PM. There is also a No-Generator area. Hosts and rangers regularly patrol the grounds so security is very good. Solar heated showers are a bit anemic when there's cloud cover. No services except dump station, potable water, toilets and aforementioned solar heated showers. Most sites appeared to have a concrete pad which helps hold down dirt & dust in the RV.

Date of Stay:

Outstanding little free AZ Game & Fish Department refuge with small parking lot for ~6 small rigs or ~4 big rigs. No services except a vault toilet but thousands of sandhill cranes and other water fowl during the winter.

Date of Stay:

This is a nice county campground. Each shower and bathroom set is in its own room so there's none of the institutional, locker-room feel. The showers take quarters and have no controls. The water is a set temp. We got there about 4:40 PM and couldn't find a host, ranger, or security so we found a space and hooked up, expecting someone to come around. No one ever showed up by the time we pulled out the next morning. My wife is trying to contact them to see if they can accept a credit card for our stay but, at this time, we're probably on the FBI's Most Wanted List for campground scoundrels.
