Kanab RV Corral

Kanab, Utah

Date of Stay:

This is a terrific little park on the road heading south out of Kanab - very close to town but nicely quiet! We had no issues backing into our site (we're just 30'); very large rigs may find some of the spaces a little tight. Our site was nice and level; all appear to be the same. Nice looking pool was closed when we visited, but the rest of the property was open, first-rate, and very clean. Bathrooms & laundry very conveniently in the center of the property. Trees between sites provided decent shade from the sun. Verizon service strong. Basic air channels were mostly in HD. We would definitely stay again!

Date of Stay:

This was our second week-long stay here at ACT; we really like this place! As others have noted, it's not the best for big rigs due to the rise and gentle slope of the property, but for our 30-footer we have no problems--we found level on our own, but they have lots of wood planks around if you need them. The CG is just a year old and the owner/managers who created it smartly worked with the contours of the land. The place is natural and they leave it that way--gravel for the sites/loop road and wood chips (not grass; this is a desert!) in between to tamp down the natural sandiness of the area. They've left much of the natural habitat which is very nice to see, then planted more colorful drought-resistant desert plants. The trees they've planted need a few years before they'll provide adequate shade, but most CG's in this area don't have much shade either. Road noise: depending on your site, there's a bit until ~11p when it settles down, but honestly this is not a problem. [Keep in mind this is a highly-used recreational area; jeeps, 4WDs, bikes, etc.--lots of people come here because of the beauty of the place--there are going to be vehicles on the roads.] There's a nice shared kitchen space--very Euro/Aussie. The bathrooms are new and cool and well-appointed. Everything about this CG speaks to environmental consciousness and resource/land stewardship--energy-efficient buildings, recycling, Moab-cool-vibe-attitude--we're all for it and will keep coming back here!! Rate reflects pay for 6 nights; 7th night is free plus 10% G.S.; a very good deal!

Decent little park where little else exists. Price was right for what it is - mostly dirt with some gravel and patches of grass by a few sites. Some spots fairly level but others required lots of blocks. Small restrooms were dated and marginally clean at best; needed attention most of the time. Beautiful old trees and spring-fed pool were nice, but very little shade here in the desert. 2 w/d @ $2.00 ea. ZERO TV STATIONS and ZERO CELL SERVICE. Each gal who worked in the office from 1p-9p was nice, but nobody else was ever around and if the gal was guiding a new guest to their site the office was closed. CG is getting tired and a lot is being overlooked; needs some capital investment and more attention to make it better. We will try to get into DVNP next time, but would stay here again if we needed to.

Great location for visiting North Phoenix; easy highway access off the 17 and 101. Near Costco, stores, restaurants, and plenty of other services. Facility is very large with an established community of seasonal trailers & mobile homes, but for transients like us there were two rows of decent pull-thrus up front. We extended our stay four additional days and were moved to a back-in site between a couple of mobile homes, but we had no issue with this. Everybody was extremely friendly - our site escort, the office people, and the seasonal residents themselves. The only showers were in the pool area and the configuration was very weird, but all bathroom facilities were always clean. Indoor pool only. Lots of common areas and great share-a-book library. Large, clean laundry facility. Outdoor shuffleboard, bocce, putting area & golf net for full swings. The seasonal residents actively participate in many activities on their social calendar - quilting, sewing, pancake breakfast, etc. We liked it here and will return.

We loved staying here and are coming back - this is a well-maintained, quiet park conveniently located in downtown Sedona. Rates vary; river spots are a premium but worth it. Level sites with grassy strips in between looked nice, so did the landscaping; the maintenance guys were constantly working to beautify the property. Clean bathrooms & laundry facility. Verizon worked well. Our only complaint is that negative signs are posted everywhere - NO THIS and NO THAT; it felt like military school. But other than that....

We whiled away nearly three weeks of winter here and found it fabulous for sunshine and free citrus. Facilities are not super modern, but most peoples' houses aren't either. Bathrooms & laundry room were nice & clean. WiFi was fine; when it got a little slow, our Verizon Hot Spot worked great. Spots are tight (real estate is expensive in Cali!) but we found our neighbors to be super - they really enhanced to our stay! Full calendar of activities offered. Great share-a-book library. Close to many things that make life easy - grocery store, shops, etc. Quiet at night. Friendly staff. We would definitely come back, as many people do year after year.

This is a tired CG that's run by the second generation; it's currently for sale and it appears no money has been put into it recently. The staff is quite friendly, particularly the lady who works in the office and the maintenance guy who takes great pride in raking the dirt every day, but one of the owners smokes constantly and everywhere and it's a little foul. CG hosts mostly permanent residents; we were put next to a Cat Lady who also loves to feed birds on her picnic table; she gave us some good laughs as we watched her from our windows. The bathrooms and laundry room were very clean, but very dated. Like the terrain all around here, the CG was all dirt, and a wind storm left our rig absolutely filthy, both inside (it seeped in thru the window drains) and out. The old trees were pretty, though. All this said, this is a satisfactory place for an overnight stay.

Not the best CG out there, but fine for an overnight stay. Access just off I-40; a bit confusing to find (you can see it but can't seem to get there), but stay on access road right next to the Interstate to gain access. Sites tight, yes, but we didn't have anyone on either side so we didn't feel it. Lady in the office couldn't have been nicer. Bathroom new, large, clean and nice.

Price reflects weekly rate of $125 plus electricity; ours was $10 for the week. Big, well-maintained desert gravel park with wide spaces and lots of room; nice that owners have put in some trees which they water daily. Terrific sunsets over the mountains each night out our front window. CG is a few miles north of town but we liked location for daily walks down the back country roads past horses, pistachio & pecan trees. Heard a bit of road noise but no issue for our sleeping. FHU was fine but no cable; our Verizon HotSpot worked better than their WiFi. Clean laundry room with 2w/2d - $2.00 for each. Two full-service bathrooms were fine. There's a small workout room with decent equipment; fit for purpose. Live music had stopped for the season. Very nice family owners + staff. We would absolutely return again.

This was our second time staying here; clearly we liked it enough to come back and this time we stayed for two weeks. Rate reflects pay for 6 nights/7th night free. Not a resort; no pool or amenities, but a perfect location for visiting Santa Fe, Taos, several Nat'l Park Units & hiking spots, plus loved the 'city' proximity & amenities. Office staff & maintenance guy were very pleasant & extremely helpful. Sites are very level concrete pads with gravel & patches of grass throughout the CG. Fabulous fall leaf colors on the old trees throughout the park. Restrooms dated but very clean & functional. Clean laundry room 4w/4d @ $1.50 ea. We got great WiFi from our site. 22 cable channels with okay signal (no HD). Will definitely come again!

Being tucked away in the red rocks makes for a very unique & wonderful setting and our October visit was pleasant. But as this appears to be the only place with hook-ups for miles around, it's evident that this would be very crowded in busy summer months and difficult to maneuver in. WiFi & cable service were a pleasant surprise given this place is far away from nothing. Sites very tight and took a lot of pads to level. Restrooms very nice & clean. We would stay here again but would think twice about busy season.

There's a lot to like about this park including the fact that you're at the base of a mesa that's wonderful to climb up on top of to get some exercise and a magnificent view. The location is also terrific for visiting Antelope Canyon, Horseshoe Bend, & the Lake Powell Dam/Glen Canyon Nat'l Recreation Area. I think your site defines your experience here. We were in #16, a pull-thru, which we liked; took some blocks to level, though. It was quiet at night & we had nice neighbors around us. Cable was excellent; WiFi & Verizon good. Laundry facility fine; lots of machines. The bathrooms, while just average in decor and size/space, were often busy and not the cleanest - know that speaks more to the users and not really the management, but don't expect nice, clean bathrooms. Other than that, we liked it here and will be staying here again next year.

Beautiful park that's very well managed and maintained. Loved the proximity to Flagstaff, but paid a premium for it here. Level sites. Pleasant office with big trade-it book cases full of books, puzzles, & other nice offerings. Very nice bathrooms & laundry facility. Water features in the park were lovely to listen to. Great trees throughout the park and sites that were gorgeous this time of year. Lots of rules, but they didn't negatively impact our stay so we were good with them. We would stay again.

Date of Stay:

Not your typical campground in terms of layout, but plenty of room around site due to the buddy layout configuration. Bathrooms are pre-fab and old, but they work if you need them. Office staff very friendly and helpful! Easy on/off highway, yet quiet at night. We would stay again.

Date of Stay:

Right on Route 66, this is a very nice campground convenient to lots of American Southwest and Native American culture & national park unit sites that are nearby. Campground is laid out well and has nice amenities, and much care is given to the upkeep of the park. WiFi worked very well most all the time; Verizon strong, too. Great cable offering! Bathrooms a bit old but clean with 3 toilets/showers in each; laundry room with 6 each w/d was very nice. Pool & grill closed for the season, but looks great. Staff very friendly & helpful. We will definitely come back.
