We stayed here for a week, and it worked well as our base while exploring the area. It's only a mile or two to drive into Bryce Canyon, and the park's shuttle stops at the campground every 15 minutes or so. It's also fairly close to Red Canyon, Grand Staircase-Escalante, and Kodachrome Basin. We stayed in the new section in the back which has huge sites... some have nice grass lawns and gravel patios, but ours was just dirt. The trees are sparse and young so expect full sun. The rest of the campground is much larger, full of mature trees providing full shade. The sites in this older section are much closer together but still reasonable. The WiFi worked reasonably well during the day, and not surprisingly slowed down a lot in the evenings. We had a week cell signal but it was usable, and with our booster it was much better. We found this to be a perfectly acceptable campground for visiting Bryce, and will consider it again if we return to the area.

     

Kanab RV Corral

Kanab, Utah

Date of Stay:

We needed a spot in Kanab for a few days and this was the best of limited choices. It's very conveniently located, and you can walk to a variety of stores nearby. It was also relatively quiet for being "in town". The WiFi was amazingly fast, better than 95% of RV parks we've stayed at. The big drawback for us is that the sites are very narrow, and many back-in sites (ours included) have a tree on both sides at the entrance to the site, making backing in a challenge. There's no room for error, and the tree branches are low enough to rub both sides of our motorhome on the way into the site. Rigs are very close together, no breathing room. There's a tiny fenced dog park, but we glanced at it and kept going, instead walking our bigger dog along some nearby streets. Since it seems to be the best option in town we would consider staying here again if we need to be in Kanab in the future, or we might try to find nearby boondocking instead if the weather is favorable.

The Wahweap Campground is very large, with around ten separate camping loops. We enjoyed our stay in loop B in the full hookup section, which includes A, B, C, D, and F loops (there is no E). A, B, and C are older have more of a "campground" feel, with large sites and good spacing with some privacy between them. There are back-ins and C-shaped pull-throughs in this section. They are terraced, with A being closest to the lake and lowest in elevation, and C being farthest but highest. Loops D and F appear to be newer sections and are laid out more like a commercial RV park, with straight rows of RVs, smaller sites, and little privacy. The pull-throughs in D and F share utilities between adjacent rigs, so that your driver's side is right up against your neighbor's driver's side (they're facing the opposite direction). We don't like that layout at all and are glad we were not in one of these loops. They offer free WiFi but it was very slow. Verizon LTE worked well, and while AT&T was limited to 3G, it was still very fast. The campground store has the basics, but it's only a few miles to the Safeway and Walmart in Page. If you don't have a National Parks pass you'll need to pay a 7-day park entry fee since the campground is inside the National Recreation Area. We asked at the store if we could receive mail and packages and while they said yes and gave us the address to use, we had some issues. We received UPS packages just fine, but our US Mail delivery made it to Page and was immediately "returned to sender" due to "invalid address". Our dog loved swimming in the lake every day, and since the campground is so large we found plenty of places to walk him. Unfortunately every walk included a few stops to pull thorns / cactus spines out of his paws. Overall we were very happy with the campground, though we did find it to be a little expensive. If we visit the area again we'll definitely stay here, IF we can get a site in A, B, or C loops.

While the most obvious draw for Trailer Village is the location (you can walk to the Grand Canyon Visitor Center and South Rim), it's actually a pretty nice campground too. The campground is huge: row after row of pull-through sites, and there was very high turnover. We'd walk our dog in the early afternoon and see the "Campground Full" sign and wonder at the many dozens of empty sites, but by late evening they were all full again, usually with Cruise America, El Monte, or Road Bear rentals. The sites are average in size... don't expect much privacy, but enough space to not feel cramped. Our site was extremely unlevel, and even with all our wood blocks and leveling jacks we could not get level (a first for us) and had to settle for a slightly crooked stay. We saw many other RVs in a similar predicament, though plenty of other sites looked fairly level. Our Verizon hotspot worked pretty well in LTE, and AT&T worked pretty well at 3G. The park shuttle stops at the campground, there's a decent park-run grocery store adjacent to the campground, and lots of trails and paths for dog walking. We saw elk and mule deer in and around the campground almost daily. We paid $36 but a few days after we arrived we saw they changed the sign to read $44. Too bad, $36 was a pretty great rate in our opinion, for full hookups inside a major National Park. If and when we return to Grand Canyon we'll definitely be staying here again.

We stayed here for a week to be close to the various hiking trails in Sedona. When we made our reservation a couple months in advance they were out of regular sites that would fit us, so we had to pay extra for a "larger" site. Our site #55 turned out to be very nice with plenty of space, but some of the smaller/cheaper sites looked to be pretty close together and less attractive. The park does have dozens of rules to follow, but we never had any issues with the rules. This was one of the cleanest and best-maintained parks we've been to. After some rain and wind the staff was immediately out raking leaves and picking up branches. We took our dog down to the creek several times and although it was too shallow for him to swim, he enjoyed getting wet. The fenced dog park is very small so we didn't use it much, but we found a Sedona town dog park a few miles away that was nice. AT&T and Verizon both worked well, and even the campground WiFi was fast and always available, a pleasant surprise! We'd definitely return in the future... we just wish it wasn't so expensive. Our rate was $58/night with Good Sam but after the $2 dog fee and tax it came to $68/night which is one of the highest rates we've ever paid.

This was a nice state park and a good home base for visiting the surrounding area, including Sedona. However, after staying at many excellent state and county parks in Arizona we found Dead Horse Ranch to be a bit lacking in comparison. Sites were closer together and pretty un-level, showers were smaller and more basic, and the landscape was less attractive (dirt/scrub). That said, it still beats most commercial RV parks... we've just been spoiled by other Arizona campgrounds! The state park has several lakes (lagoons) for fishing and our dog loved to go for a swim in them. It's only a few minutes to Cottonwood, and less than a half hour to Jerome or Sedona. AT&T and Verizon both worked well for us. We stayed in the Red Tail loop. The price ($25) is great, and we'll likely return again if we re-visit the area in the future.

This is a nice Maricopa County Park only a few miles from Mesa AZ. There's quite a lot of space between sites, mostly filled with tall/mature cacti and other desert plants. The back-in sites have their "camping area" (picnic table, fire pit, open space) behind the site instead of next to it. The bath houses are about average, but each has only two men's showers and two women's showers so we sometimes had to wait to take a shower, even though the campground was only half full. There's a short "nature trail" in the campground, and several hikes starting at the trailhead a mile or so from the campground. There's plenty of places to walk dogs, but we also took our dogs into Mesa a few times to the huge and popular dog park there. We enjoyed the large, private sites and the proximity to town/shopping, and will likely stay here again.

This was a tough one for us to rate. As others have said, the location is the main draw for this new RV Park, being very close to downtown Tucson. The downside of being downtown is that the park is little more than a paved RV parking lot with a very thin strip of gravel between each site (check the Google satellite view for details). The RV park was very clean and the camp hosts were friendly and helpful. The price (weekly rate) was good for a downtown park, but the free WiFi is satellite-based and was unusably slow. The city park across the street and down a block (Menlo Park) was a great place to walk our dog each day, since the RV park is tiny and mostly paved. If you want to be close to Tucson and are OK with tight quarters, Sentinel Peak provides a good compromise between location, price, and site/amenities.

North Ranch

Congress, Arizona

Date of Stay:

We only stayed overnight (March 2016) and this RV park was perfectly good for an overnight stay. The price (for Escapees members) was great and the staff was friendly and helpful. The sites and roads are all gravel (typical for a desert RV Park) but we found the sites to be closer together that we like. A little more space would have made a big difference. Our back-in site was along a row of trees which were very nice, but the branches prevented us from backing our rig up as far as we normally would, so we were sticking out into the road a little bit. We had no AT&T signal but Verizon LTE worked well enough. The park recycles paper, plastic, and cans which was a nice change from most parks we stay at in Arizona. There's a pretty nice fenced dog area (gravel) and a dirt path for walking dogs. We'd gladly do a short-term stay again, but the small sites, 30-amp hookups, and lack of AT&T service would make us think twice before a longer stay.

This was a rather unique place to camp... full hookups just a few feet from the Colorado River on semi-private "peninsulas" that each hold four RVs (a couple peninsulas hold a dozen or so RVs, good for large groups). Pros: camp right along the river with dog-friendly semi-private beach access (each peninsula of four RVs shares a section of beach); full hookups; camp fires allowed on the beach (but not in the camping area); good cell signal. Cons: some of the sites can be cramped if all four sites on a peninsula are occupied; some noise from boats going up and down the river; kind of a long drive to any amenities/shopping; roads in poor condition; watch for extra fees. We did the three-night special for $117, but then had to add a $10 reservation charge (you have to pay it whether you call or do online reservations) and $2 per day for our dog. They charge $25 if you arrive early, and $50 per hour if you depart late. They charge $10 per day if you bring an extra vehicle (no fee for RV towed vehicle), and there was a whole list of other potential charges. Sites are sand, which can be a little deep in areas. We'd consider staying here again.

We don't give out "perfect" ratings easily, but Yucaipa Park deserves one. We spent a week here and absolutely loved it. The sites were huge with concrete patios, they have full hookups, there's a very nice hiking trail (somewhat strenuous) at the park, fishing and swimming lakes (we let our dog cool off in the fishing lakes and no one seemed to mind), and there are several supermarkets and restaurants within a few miles. AT&T and Verizon both worked well for us. During the weekends the campground was completely filled with local visitors (we were one of the only out-of-state license plates) having BBQs, while during weekdays we had most of the campground to ourselves and it was very quiet and peaceful. Since it's full on weekends, you need to make reservations early. Fires are allowed only if you bring your own elevated fire pit. The sites at the southern end of the campground get some road noise from Oak Glen Rd, but our site at the far northern end was completely quiet. We will definitely come back.

We were pleasantly surprised by Indian Waters... we feared being tightly packed like sardines but the sites were more spacious than expected (for a commercial RV park). For our one-week stay we chose the cheapest site, a gravel back-in, and it was comfortable for us with a separate concrete pad for our car and a tree. The park is very well maintained with attractive landscaping, trees, grassy areas, and lakes. There were three grassy dog parks (two large enough for our Labrador to play comfortably) and a walking path around one section of the RV park. The WiFi worked sometimes but we found ourselves relying on our hotspot other times. Both Verizon and AT&T had strong signals but were sometimes slow. This being our first time in the area, we discovered that Indio was a bit further away from Palm Springs than we expected, so we had several 45-minute drives to do our touristy things. Given the high price of many other RV parks in the area, we found Indian Waters to be a good balance of quality and price. We would likely return here in the future.

We hadn't planned to stay here, but due to a minor emergency while in Borrego Springs we needed to find an RV park with full hookups for a couple of nights and this what was available. The staff was helpful in finding us a site without a reservation, though we found the price to be surprisingly high for the very basic (sand/dirt), narrow site ($53 after Good Sam, before tax, during President's Day weekend). Our site was a pull-through and was plenty long, but quite narrow. We couldn't safely pull through to exit due to a diagonal tree blocking the front of the site. The back-in sites are only 30 amp and are even closer together, but not that much less expensive. The RV park is relatively small, but since it's adjacent to the hotel it has amenities like a pool, hot tub, and restaurant, as well as some shared fire pits in one area. Behind the park is a wide expanse of desert with some simple trails that were good for walking our dog... just watch out for the many sharp cactuses! The park is in a good location with most of Borrego Springs a short bicycle ride away. They offer free Tengo WiFi, which worked reasonably well for a while, then would go down for an hour or so, then work well for a while, etc. We had decent Verizon LTE and AT&T 4G signal, but both were pretty slow when we used them for data.
