Check in was very easy and friendly. Good interior roads. We had one of the new spaces with a brick patio. Rate is Passport America. No public restrooms or laundry. Nice clean park, good WiFi. Only minor thing is lack of dumpsters, only two for the park. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Rate reflects Passport America rate. Though this is called Fairgrounds RV Park, and it is located right next to the fairgrounds but it is not affiliated with the fairgrounds. Very nice people in the office. Asked us to pick out a site and come back to office and register. Very quiet park, very tidy with great view of the mountains. Our site was spot on for level. Extra charge of $5 per day for 50 amp. There are some extended stay folks in the park but all sites were so tidy you really can't tell who is long term and who is short. We would stay here again. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This is a nice quiet park, off the beaten path, with fairly large gravel sites, and nice paved roads. It is close to Prescott Valley and about 10 miles from Prescott. The managers were very nice and extremely helpful. The only thing that would make this park better would be if they had bathrooms and showers. You have to have a self-contained rig for this reason. They would also benefit from having laundry facilities. Other than that, we loved this park and area and would definitely stay here again. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Open lot next to abandoned horse race track. Roads are paved. Sites are level and gravel. Easy back-in site for our 44' 5th-wheel. Quiet and out of town a bit. At the edge of the mountains heading toward Jerome, 20 minutes to mid-town Prescott. WiFi package to purchase $13 for a week, worked great. Wonderful host couple, very helpful and kind. Some full-timers. Large open lot to run the dogs. Site was very roomy. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
We have stayed here 4 times over the past 2 years. The park is clean, great attitude by manager. Spacing is good, sites raked gravel and paved roads well maintained. This is a basic services park, not a resort style but for comfortable stays without frills it is very nice. Has some longer term rigs with no porches, outside refrigerators or decks allowed which keeps it more in the theme of RVing. Has good views, propane, and full hook ups, good security with single entrance and a very pleasant casual atmosphere and resident manager. Night registration is handy for odd hours. While cable coax is visible at most site pedestals, it is not functional at all sites yet. Over the air channels from Prescott are received We will be back, it is a clean, roomy basic park with a very good atmosphere. For a basic park it is very good, clean, and it's management easy to work with. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Rate based on monthly stay. Electric is metered for monthly stay and that amount is not included in the daily rate. Cable is an additional cost for monthly residents, not sure about daily residents. Park offers internet, but that is an additional fee, too. Verizon cell and data service were good, as was Sprint. Park is easy in/easy out, big rig friendly, interior roads are asphalt, sites are gravel and level. The sites are some of the largest we've seen. Other than full hookups, there are no amenities – no pool, no laundry room, no showers/toilets, and no shade. There is a large field adjacent to the park that's a nice place for walking pets. The park is located adjacent to a raceway, but the noise was a factor for only a few hours on Saturday evenings. At the time we were there, the park was offering Passport America (3 nights), Escapees and Good Sam discounts. Park is under new management as of October 2013. We would stay here again if passing through the area. We camped here in a Motorhome.
The rate paid was with Passport America. There were no shade trees at our spaces. The park has huge spaces giving plenty of room between sites. You must pay for Wi-Fi access. It was a reasonable rate and had a great signal. We would stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This park is situated several miles from Prescott Valley and it is a 20-25 minute drive to Prescott. The park is in a rural setting. The hookups are modern and work well. The campsites are flat, gravel and quite wide -- about 35 feet. The park was only sparsely filled when we were there, making it seem extra spacious. There are a few semi-permanent residents there, which I gather bothers some RVers, but they (the residents) are friendly and helpful. Our rate, $15, was the Passport America rate. Nice park - we will stay here again when we visit Prescott. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Currently, the rate is $15 a nite, even if you are not a passport member. The internet connection is very fast (10mb), if you stay close to the office. Nice clean park. Only drawback, is the 15 mile drive to downtown Prescott. Would definitely stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We stayed 3 nights in a huge, wide space with all connections perfectly placed for our 40 footer plus tow vehicle. Manager was very friendly and helpful. The site is gravel with no trees but everything was spotless and quiet. We were visiting the City of Prescott so we had to drive about 15 minutes, perfectly acceptable for this great RV park. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Functioned just fine- did not pay for features I do not use! Just outside of Prescott Valley, pleasant scenery, really big spaces, nice & quiet. Staff personable & helpful. I checked other places to stay a couple weeks and this was the easy winner. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
How would you like to check into an RV park where you are greeted like an old friend by the host and the facility is clean, well managed, easy to locate with totally level sites? This is the one! The manager is friendly and accommodating and the rate, $16 with Passport America, is hard to beat. There are no laundry, showers, or restrooms but not a problem if you have a full service RV. We highly recommend this park! We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Well maintained campground with helpful and friendly check in. Road is paved and the level gravel pad is very long and very wide, no need to unhook your towed, it's all very big rig friendly. Extremely quiet, lots of space around the RV, no shade trees, grass or picnic table but the views over to the mountains are lovely and the sunsets are spectacular. There are no bathrooms or laundry. There is WiFi but you have to be close to the office to use it, cell is good. It's about 10 miles to food stores and restaurants. This is a great base for sightseeing. We would stay here again. Rate reflects Passport America. This campground is such a great deal. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This park provides wide, level gravel sites connected by well-paved roads at an exceptional price (using Passport America). Although the brochure and signs say that PA is only accepted for a couple of nights, the manager, a pleasant, low-key guy, offered to honor it for our entire stay. The park doesn't have any other amenities, nor is there any shade, but it has great views of the hills and there is almost total peace and quiet, especially after dark. Even though the park is situated away from the city, it is only about a 20 minute drive to anywhere in Prescott/Prescott Valley and you are also well-located for heading towards Sedona. The name Fairground RV Park appears to refer to what once was a fairgrounds/horse racing complex next door which now is empty due to bankruptcy. So you don't have to worry about crowds or safety associated with events at the fairgrounds. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This nightly rate is based on a monthly stay which is a very reasonable $310. We found the manager to be exceptionally nice and helpful. The park is about 15 minutes from Prescott and about 10 minutes to Dewey. It's only 17 miles to Jerome, an historic mining town, now an interesting town to visit full of art and restaurants. The park has large, level spaces, good interior roads, and is very well kept. It is also very, very quiet. I appreciate that. No road noise or trains. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We stayed at this park for 2 months this summer. It's clean, quiet, well kept, paved roads and wide spaces. No laundry facilities at present but coming soon. The manager makes you feel at home. I will go back again. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
This campground is just plain user-friendly. It is clean, quiet and well-tended. The manager is the go-to guy for anything one might need, and went over and above the call of duty to make our stay easy and enjoyable. The park has large sites, ample clearance, good interior roads, and its central location is perfect for a whole lot of activities in Prescott, Sedona, and Jerome. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Excellent place to stay if you enjoy peace and quiet. Sites are huge. Wi-Fi system needs a better antenna to reach further into the park. Staff is very friendly and helpful. Will definitely stay here again when in the area. Rate reflects Passport America. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Great big vista views of the Prescott valley at a great $15/night Passport America rate! (rate was offered for unlimited nights while I was here, too). Free wi-fi was fast and easy, and park was quiet. Convenient to Prescott, Jerome, and Cottonwood. All sites are pull-through with full hookups. Not many other amenities, but great value for the price and nice friendly park manager. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Rate is Passport Rate. Park is convenient to Jerome and Prescott. We stayed 3 days visiting both towns. Sites are level and staff was friendly. We will stay here again when area. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This park is out of town and very quiet, paved roads, gravel sites that are huge. Easy in and out. My rate Passport America. The Horse Track behind the campground is closed so it makes a great place to walk. We arrived when office was closed so we picked a site. Would return. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Rate reflects Passport America rate. This park is a good launch pad for all to see in the area. Long level gravel wide sites that are not crammed next to each other. The onsite manager was great. Wi-Fi was a little spotty but when available it was real fast. Hookups were laid out pretty good. We will definitely stay here again. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Great park. We stayed here for my daughters soccer tourney and will definitely be staying again soon for another tourney. The only downside is there are no restrooms/showers. There are full hookups, but be aware cable TV is not available in the pull through sites, only at the back-ins. They have this posted but I got in pretty late and didn't see it until the next morning and I was already hooked up. The on site manager was really cool. Nice place for a great rate. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Rate reflects Passport America rate. We stayed at this park while doing a show in Prescott. Manager went above and beyond! Park is very level and the sites are plenty large enough! We have a 40' with a tow dolly and didn't have any problems, there was more than enough room to park the car next to the RV (or put a trailer). Wi-Fi is available (close to check in building) and the back-in sites have cable TV! We will be visiting this park again! We camped here in a Motorhome.
Our rate reflects Passport America for a single night. The Prescott Valley fair grounds are quite a ways from anything. So if you are looking to stock up, do so before hand. There are no bathrooms or showers that we could discern; never the less, the fair grounds are a steal at the Passport America rate. The sites are very level, with newer hook-ups and TV connection. Very wide sites, but they have almost no shade. We'd definitely go back. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Gravel park at the fairgrounds east of Prescott Valley northeast of Prescott Valley on Arizona 89A. The RV parks sits at a nice setting below the Mingus Mountains overlooking the city of Prescott Valley. Very clean and friendly staff escort to site. Wi-Fi only at the office. I did not see bathrooms or showers. The fairgrounds are multi-use so there may be traffic or noise at times. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Our nightly rate is based on the weekly charge. The WiFi was not working while we were here for 10 days. Even when we went to the office. Staff was friendly, park clean. Would stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Big level, gravel sites at this park located about 12 miles from Prescott. Be sure to have them turn on the cable TV at your site or you'll think something is wrong with your gear. No restrooms that I could see but that was no problem. Good Wi-Fi and a good bargain at $15. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is a Passport America Park and they limit the stay to 3 days. It's located on 89-A in Prescott Valley. The sites are large, level and have nice views. We would gladly come back here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
For Memorial day we decided to take the family on an overdue camping trip to Lynx Lake Campground. I grew up in and around the Dewey area but I have not been back in probably over 20 years. I am absolutely amazed how much this place has changed! And for the better. Lucky for us, we planned our trip ahead of time and made a reservation online so we were guaranteed a good camp site. We left Phoenix late Friday morning in 100+ weather and arrived in Prescott about 2 hours later to a very pleasant 75 degrees. We passed Costco and headed south on Walker towards the beautiful tall pines before finally arriving at the Lynx Campground. Upon arrival we talked to the friendly camp hosts who directed us to our secluded campsite and talked to us about gold panning places and then provided us with useful maps and information about the area. There was a fire ban in effect when we visited and no campfires were permitted. We didn't care for that very much but we understand the need to have active banning of fires. The campground is very well taken care of and the restrooms are the cleanest we have seen anywhere. Nights were very quiet and peaceful. Quiet hours are enforced between 10pm and 6AM and despite the campground being full on a busy holiday weekend everyone seemed respectful of one another. There are no hookups available at Lynx but there is potable water spigots are available in each of the 8 loops. We were informed that Lynx is considered a remote camp facility and on a limited water system so make sure you fill up your RV or trailer with water before arriving or you might be disappointed. There are no dump stations but there are several free public dump stations close by. Overall we had an awesome trip and we are already making plans to re-visit Lynx again soon. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
This is a US Forest Service campground, not an RV Park. Just wanted to make that clear from the start. I was forced to input a phone number by this website, but just FYI: the number listed is for the Prescott National Forest, not the campground host. There are no showers, and since "N/A" was not an option, I had to answer "I Don't Know" to the shower question. This campground is in the Prescott National Forest, but you'd never think that when you are first visiting, because it is literally 5 minutes from civilization. That could be good or bad depending on what you prefer when you go camping. You see tons of stores, restaurants, etc, and then, all of a sudden, you're amidst pine trees and the city noise is gone. Our day temps in mid-May were 88 during the day and 50's during the night. Pros: The camping spots were nice size, and we did see some larger pull-through spots. $10 per night. Lynx Lake and the Lynx Lake Recreation area is right around the corner from here, and is a great place to take the family for a picnic, boating or fishing, etc. There is a wonderful trail, approximately 3/4 mile walk that takes you right to the south shore of the lake. Their website indicates that there are some lake view spots, although we didn't see any of these spots. The south shore of Lynx Lake has the Recreation area with picnic tables (some shaded), charcoal grills, great shaded lake access for fishing and the boat ramp. The north shore has a store and boat rental. Stores and restaurants are very close by, so if you forgot something or just want to give the cook the night off, you have many grocery store, fast food and even sit-down restaurant choices. Cons: No electric or water hookups. There are water spigots throughout the campground, but nothing for filling RV tanks, no showers, or flushing toilets. There are some larger pull-through spots, but their website says that a rig can't be any larger than 40', so it might be difficult to maneuver a larger rig around this campground. Campground does not accept reservations and is first-come, first-served, so you are really taking your chances trying to get a spot in this campground on a holiday, or weekend during the summer months. Most of Phoenix is trying to escape to these campgrounds on the weekend, so it can fill up quickly. The pine trees at this campground have really taken a beating in this forest: not sure if it's drought related, forest thinning, or the bark beetle, but many trees have been chopped down and many look dry and are missing their lower limbs. This makes for a lack of shade in many spots. We stayed in Loop C, site #14 and our spot along with most in our area had the sun beating down on us between 11:00am and 3:00pm making for a hot, uncomfortable, sun-burn kind of day. We have other campgrounds that we prefer, but this one is a good one to return to if we can get some time in the middle of the week and just want to stay for a couple of days. We camped here in a Tent.
Very nice retirement / full time RV park. Great location, very nice full timers living here. Our space (#3) was plenty long but narrow with no room for our awning. Now for the reason for my 6. The owners are a little uptight and did not make us feel welcome. We reserved bookend weekends and they somehow lost our reservation for the following weekend. It seems they just tolerate the weekend folks here. We stayed instead at another campground the next weekend, and loved that place. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
This is a tough park to review. There isn't really anything necessarily bad about it. However, you have to realize that this is a mobile home park that has reserved a few spaces for RV's. All the mobile homes are clean and very well kept. The residents were all very friendly along with the staff. We stayed in spot 149 and the lady next door was incredibly friendly and glad to have new neighbors for a few days. The reason we didn't love it is because when we are in our RV, we like to be surrounded by people traveling and vacationing like we are as opposed to just being in a mobile home park. The proximity to Whiskey Row is tough to beat. The park is incredibly clean and everyone was friendly. It just isn't our type of place to stay. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Clean older park with mostly permanent, well kept dwellings. Our site, for our 34 footer and Jeep was fairly small but adequate. The bathroom facilities are unusual for a motorhome park: one toilet and one sink. Period. Amazingly, we never had to wait for anyone however. Payment here is cash only. As an earlier reviewer mentioned, this park's main advantage is its close proximity to the town square, 15 min walk or $4.75 taxi each way if you want to experience "Whisky Row" which is highly recommended. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Mainly mobile homes with RV sites spaced about the mobile homes, back-in and pull through with no amenities such as laundry or showers. Walking distance to the Prescott Court House and Whiskey Row, 3/4 of a mile. The location to downtown Prescott is its best asset. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We stayed at this RV park for almost 2 weeks. The Office staff are great and very helpful. We were in space #1 and we were able to use the free Wi-Fi transmitting from the office however our signal was on the weak side. The facility is very clean but very dusty because none of the roads are all gravel and it gets very windy there at times. There's some really nice trails that will take you to Watson Lake which is right next door and lots of huge boulders located in and around the park. They have some pretty good deals on monthly rates if your a full timer looking for a semi permanent address in the Prescott area. The location is great being close to shopping and Costco. We would go back if we needed to and would recommend it to anyone. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Rate is based on one week stay. Wonderful, rustic park located right next to Watson Lake and nestled in giant granite boulders. Roads and sites are gravel, picnic table at each site. We had site 67 and it was extremely private. Good access to Watson Lake via a short trail. You can also scramble around on the rocks adjacent to the park. Fantastic location! Laundry was clean and inexpensive. The only reason I did not give this place a 10 was the dust from the roads and the lack of wifi. You can only get park wifi near the office. We had a fair Verizon signal with our booster, with reasonable internet speeds. We definitely would stay here again! We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Our experience was mixed. The couple who run the park are very nice & our check-in went smoothly. The location is pretty spectacular with significant large boulders and a short hike to Watkins Lake. The space we were assigned was narrow, compounded by trees on both sides, and untrimmed twigs and branches encroaching into the space scratching up our vehicles. Once parked, we did fine, but there is a lot of dust kicked up with every passing vehicle. Seemed to be a good percentage of full-timers here, as evidenced by some "older" RVs with adjacent "junk piles" accumulating. All in all, an OK stay. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
This is an okay park for a night or two if you don't mind dirt and dust. They could use a couple of loads of gravel to help with this problem. The facilities could use some updating and the spots are kind of grouped together. Not very private if you don't know your neighbor well. The rocks are beautiful and there is a nice trail to the lake, but don't take your dog on it because it is full of wicked stickers and thorns that attach themselves to the feet. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This park is located in some incredible rock formations just outside of Prescott. The surroundings are beautiful. The park is a quiet family owned and operated facility. The staff is helpful, the park is quiet, and if you enjoy outdoor activities this is the place to go. It is right next to a lake that offers boating, hiking, mountain biking, rock climbing, bird watching, and more. The roads and sites are unpaved. The Wi-Fi service is only available at the office, not throughout the park. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
This RV park is very convenient to all areas of Prescott. The sites will accommodate all sizes and types of rigs. The area covers a mountain like area with hills and lots of shade. The gravel roadways can be rough, but they do try to keep them level. This sites are roomy and level. There is no cable TV but lots of over the air channels. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
This is a beautiful and rustic park nestled in the granite dells. We stayed on one of three sites going up the hill and no neighbors. Space was huge, lots of pinion pines, shade, dells on one side, and canyon to the rear. Very quiet where we were. Internet only available in the office but we got by with our own. Phone and wireless service is great. Office staff very friendly and helpful. Received packages for us. Just loved it. About 4 miles north of town and not much around other than Watson Park. Lots of walking trails. We prefer these types of campgrounds to the resort types and wish we could find more of them this unique. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is a very good park in a great location. Our site was wide and level and private. The electric was good. We didn't try to use their Wi-Fi, but we had a good Verizon air card data signal and a good voice signal. We enjoyed the hiking trails into the Granite Dells and to Watson Lake. Only complaint was the dirt and dust. Some gravel would be nice. We would stay here again. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Can`t notice the sign as you come in from the north of town. The campgrounds were simple, clean, and nice. Nothing fancy and this is not a resort. Management and fellow campers were all friendly. My dog and loved the hiking trails around the park which wandered to a nice lake nearby. It's a great RV park but with only one major flaw! The weak Wi-Fi signal only works around the main office. When I complained, management only said, "one of these days we`re gonna fix that!" Stayed 3 days in a travel trailer. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We first arrived just before dark and we were tired. We rushed to set up camp before dark, as the campground is set up on two tiers and some sites looked tricky at night. Our first encounter in setting up was a broken electrical panel cover. We called to let the office know and they told us that several were broken and they had no intention of fixing them - also that there was no cable and no Wi-Fi. We were unimpressed. We learned the next day that there was free Wi-Fi on the office patio and at a table set up in the laundry room. There were also free books and DVDs to use. This campground grew on us over time as there is direct walking access to gorgeous trails in the area, including Watson Lake. Despite some minor maintenance issues, we would stay here again. The sites vary considerably from one to the next. Ours was level, very private and nicely landscaped. The granite dells are absolutely stunning. There is almost no lighting in the park, so be sure and arrive before dark! We camped here in a Motorhome.
We loved this campground. Please note our rate was based on a monthly rate of $320 plus electricity. I do not know the nightly rate. The facilities are older but very well maintained. The laundry is a super bargain at $1 a load! All of our neighbors could not have been nicer. We stayed in the lower section; which is primarily long term. The upper section has a better view of the Granite Dells. If you want to explore this area of Prescott you can't go wrong with this stop. We stayed 2 months while we worked at the Prescott Gateway Mall, which is just 3.5 miles from the campground, and a beautiful drive in itself. We hope to return to Prescott and will certainly stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Lots of permanent residents. Tight driving for my 40' motorhome. Lots of trees but no issues as long as one is careful. The roads are tight and the entire park is dirt. My site was a back in and 40' deep with a steep drop off. Fortunately my motorhome is 40'. My site was very spacious and I loved the walk through the rocks to the lake directly behind the park. The park is about 10 minutes to downtown Prescott. The park entrance is very difficult to see if coming from the north. I would not recommend staying here if your rig is longer than 30'. The staff was friendly and helpful. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We are retired, part time on the road. This is one of our favorites! It has spacious sites, privacy barriers like trees and bushes, shade, and beautiful natural landscape. Quail run through like chickens. We like the sites on the upper level best. There are a few view sites, but we like to back up to those marvelous rocks. We recommend it to our friends. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We really enjoyed this campground after a not so great experience at another place the previous weekend. The owner has done an excellent job building his campground over the last 34 years he's owned it. We stayed in spot 15 in the lower part of the park: it had plenty of shade and plenty of room. There is a nice mix of full time residents, summer long folks and weekenders. The staff were friendly and helpful. Watson Lake is next door with weekend boat rentals and there are hiking and biking trails all around the Granite Dells. Downtown Prescott is just a short 10 minute drive away. I would highly recommend this place and we will definitely be returning. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Nice and helpful host, reserved sites for myself and a friend's motor home on very short notice, and next to each other . Easy to find and great location. Just a short hike to a beautiful lake. The roads are dirt and this kicks up tons of dirt when people drive by, and lots of full time people. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Great park. The best helpful friendly staff I have encountered anywhere. Very nice shaded large spaces. Rock formations around the park are gorgeous. Watson lake within walking distance. I highly recommend this park and i will revisit. Stayed for a week. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
We have a 40' motor home and it was a bit tight maneuvering in this campground. and they look to only have a few sites that will work for the larger rigs. There seem to be several permanent RVs here but are kept nicely enough. All that said, we want to give this place a thumbs up. The reason we came to Prescott was for the Granite Dells and Watson Lake, and this RV park is right next to them. There are trails right out of the campground for access. It's a nice place to stay and quiet. The folks are friendly and you can't beat the location. One warning though. If you're heading north to Prescott, don't take your RV on SR 89. It is very slow and windy and over 40' prohibited. Look at their website for directions. We should have. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Stayed here while visiting friends in the area. Centrally located, friendly staff, clean showers/bathrooms. Wi-Fi only near office, and they charged an extra $1/day for using electric heaters in our rig. Rate is with Good Sam and for three people. We'll stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We camp here at least once a year, more if we can. It is always clean, quiet and very picturesque. Two hiking trails out of the campground, fishing in 2 nearby lakes and town 4 miles away. Small sites, older facility but great if you have a small rig or travel trailer. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Beautiful campground, well situated sites, friendly and helpful staff. They even loaned us a grill. Hiking trail ran from the campground. We will definitely come here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is a quiet and scenic park in the middle of the beautiful Granite Dells outside of Prescott. We stayed for 4 night while attending a dog show in Chino Valley. We enjoyed the peace & quiet and some hikes with the dogs in the evenings. We loved watching the quail and hearing & seeing bats at night. Check in staff were very nice. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We stay here anytime we get to Prescott. The boulders are nice and there is a path to Watson Lake. It is family owned and they take care of their park. Nothing fancy, but well maintained. There is a $1/day add-on for electricity (20 and 30amp service). Conveniently located near the heart of Prescott. Views of city lights are nice. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is a unique, old style campground. Park was very quiet, clean, included scenic trails, and is conveniently located near the heart of Prescott. Some of the trails take you to Watson Lake and Willow Lake. It’s a small drive to the historic Prescott's Whiskey Row, where many shops and restaurants are available. Our site was surrounded by trees, rocks, and bushes. Roads and sites are unpaved, just dirt. Park includes both back-in and pull-through sites. The staff was very friendly. As always, we travel to other campgrounds when visiting a new location. We determined this was the best campground in the area. We plan on visiting every year. Please visit their website for more details and local attractions. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
This is really the only RV park worth staying at in Prescott. Bathrooms are spotless and the staff friendly. The prices have increased the past few years with no improvements. The roads and campsites are DUSTY and the WiFi only works in the laundry room. There was one change: they finally purchased an electronic credit card reader. Up until last year they used the old sliding credit card imprinter. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is a very nice campground in a great location (better than others in the general vicinity) close to Prescott. We were impressed with the rocks and the cleanliness of the facility. Our site was in the upper level and we had trees, rocks and bushes around us, which we very much appreciated. The staff was friendly and helpful upon check in, and we enjoyed our visit: would definitely stay again. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
This park is in a great location just north of Prescott. Located among the granite rocks with lots of shade trees. Staff is friendly and the grounds and facilities are clean. There are some full time residents but all of the spaces are kept clean. Roads and parking spots are dirt and it can be a little dusty if speed limits are not adhered to, or there are heavy winds, not a big worry though. Good water pressure, over air TV and cell coverage. WiFi at the office only. Overall we really like this clean and quiet park and will definitely stay here again. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
This park is carved out of the area adjacent to the Granite Dells area of Prescott. Roads and sites are unpaved, dirt. We stayed in site 69 which offered extraordinary privacy due to heavy foliage on both sides of site. Roads are narrow but manageable. One two pull throughs in park. Some pull in, most back in. No campground lighting results in night-time walks in pure darkness if you don't have a flashlight. We didn't use the showers or toilets but noticed nightly maintenance of both and dog-dropping bag dispensers were also checked daily. Very basic park but we would visit again without a doubt. WiFi only available in immediate vicinity of the office. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This park has everything if you have dogs who love to romp. We have two large dogs who love to hike. There are two hiking trails on each end of the campground. One trail goes towards the rocks and the other goes to a lake. The one towards the lake is wonderful. After a hike through the rocks, we ended up on a beautiful grass field, which lead down to the lake. The Wi-Fi worked fine and our site was shady. The bathrooms odor made the ranking go down to a 9. It was over-powering. It was cleanser smelling, but too much for me to tolerate. Otherwise, great park. We would stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Nice location to Watson & Willow Lakes, golf course and historic Prescott's Whiskey Row. Campground is located among the Dells and trees. Nice hiking trail out the backside of park. No cable TV, Wi-Fi is at office and only 30 amp at sites but we really enjoyed our stay. Our 40 ft motorhome had plenty of room in our site but we did need to put blocks under the front jacks. We will stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This campground has very clean restrooms and showers, and very shady areas and mix of size spaces. We were backed up to the rocks and loved how well the park is maintained and managed. Many trash containers around and a good mix of temp and permanent residents. It's a short distance from the hiking trails which we used. It is a quiet area with a minimum of road noise, and is well laid out for average to small RV's. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Yes, they have gravel, instead of paved roads, BUT the generous-sized spaces and the trees between the spaces more than make up for a little dust. Beautiful view, and those granite rocks are unbelievable! The staff was awesome, and it was so nice and quiet. Good hiking on the nearby trails, and there's dog bags provided at both ends of the park. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
This is a unique older campground, with charm and evidence of the care the owners have for their park. We feel the park was made for a different time, of automobiles and trailers. It's held up well with the RV crowd, with the bulk of the sites being able to handle up 36-38', and a few pull through for larger rigs. They've done a good job of maintaining this park. Though we did not use them, the restrooms were always clean and well cared for. Many of the sites have privacy from their adjoining sites. The walks on the paths to the Lakes and Rocks around the park, are safe and pleasant. The park does have a mix of some full time sites. This is our second visit, and both times we felt the mix of full time and non full time was fine. This is not a park to go swimming, or party at the rec room. It is a nice park to just get away, and use as a home base to hit Prescott, Jeromes, Sedona, Skull Valey, Chino Valley, etc. Many thanks to the owners and staff, for maintaining such a nice park. I could imagine a late 50's or early 60's Airstream club visiting!! We camped here in a Motorhome.
This was a very scenic private campground. The only gripe is that the Wi-Fi is available only in a few sites adjacent to the office. Thus you won't have Wi-Fi at your site unless you can get one of those sites; you will need to use the tables provided in the office or laundry, both of which close at night. Sites vary in size, but there were plenty available for big rigs with good room to maneuver. Management was friendly and helpful. Laundry, showers and restrooms were very good. Rate is for a one week stay. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Nice mom and pop campground. Staff was friendly and accommodating. Lots of rocks to climb. It was nice and quiet. The sites were a little tight to get in and out of. We enjoyed our stay. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
A last minute overnight stay, turned out to be a rewarding and enjoyable night for us. We found the campground to be very clean, extremely quite and very dark at night. Friendly neighbors with several full-timers, but all in all, a very clean place. All gravel spaces, but level and plenty of space between each other. We didn't even unhook the trailer and had plenty of room. No cable, but come on, you're camping! We found a new location to camp at, and next time spend some quality time to explore. Oh yeah: the staff was great and very helpful with directions and check-in. We will be back again. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Close enough to hiking and fishing in the twin lakes. Gravel spots with no camp fires allowed, 4 year old was disappointed but still enjoyed our stay there. Showers and bathroom were clean, appeared to have a few people residing there. Don't try and travel through downtown Prescott with your trailer, parking is non-existent. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Beautiful spot! Camped beneath a 50' high rock wall surrounded by trees. Cool, clean, dark and quiet. Friendly folks too! Not an overdone, "Slick-Sam" type of place, but rather a real-deal, with plenty of the natural world thrown in! We camped here in a Motorhome.
All dirt park. Large sites. Friendly staff. Pet friendly. No 50A. They had wi-fi but we couldn't receive on the upper level. Verizon aircard worked fine. About 900kb d/l avg. AT&T cell worked fine (edge coverage). We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
We loved this park! Nice setting, nice big trees, and plenty of hiking trails accessible from the campground. The owners/office staff were very friendly and seemed to take great pride in the park. It appeared as though there were some long term residents, but everything was well kept and the grounds were clean. Sites are separated by trees so you get a sense of privacy. We will definitely go back - probably in the summer to escape the Phoenix heat! We camped here in a Motorhome.
The park was very nice, the bathrooms were clean, the only problems were the staff and the owners. They were very rude, kind of like you were bothering them by asking a question. Also, we were told that children are not allowed to stay here for an extended time frame of a week or more. I really didn't know that camping without your children was an option. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
The park sits up a hill above the road and is very quiet. The setting is quite pleasant, set among the huge boulders that give the park its name. There is a great walking trail at the back of the park that leads you through some gorgeous rock formations in adjacent open space. What the park lacks is gravel and 50 amp service. As a result of the missing gravel, plan on a dust cloud from every passing car or rig coming through the park. This would be a great little park with proper surface materials. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This park barely deserves a 7 rating, and that's mostly because the folks are nice, bathrooms clean,price is fair ($23 GS) and there's no place else to go in town. They haven't improved anything in years, not even putting soap dispensers in the bathroom. Still many permanent or seasonal residents; some rundown sites. Needs lots of gravel- the road dust is everywhere. Not great tv antenna reception, but Verizon cell & aircard are strong. Scenic rocks nearby, and Watson Lake. We camped here in a Motorhome.
I was impressed with this campground. The host was very friendly, and the campground was clean. There are several permanent residents who reside there. I walked around with my dog, and had a look at every site, and there really is not one that is a bad location. One item I noticed during my three day, two night stay was how quiet it was. A short hike among the rocks and you can see Watson Lake. I recommend this RV campground. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Overall, not a bad campground. A little tight for larger rigs, but manageable. Lots of long-term residents but that didn't seem to be a problem. The staff was friendly and helpful. The rocks are a big part of the appeal but they also give you a very closed-in feeling. The park is fine for an overnight stay. There are not a lot of choices in the area and we would stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This was our first trip in our new (used) motorhome. Our friends stay at Point of Rock whenever they are in Prescott so we met them there for the weekend. We were able to get 2 adjoining sites and had a great time. There is an opening at the end of the campground that leads to a nice hiking trail where, with a short easy walk, you can get a beautiful view of the lake. We found POR to be dog friendly as well. Another good feature is that there was a small convenience store within a short bike ride. All in all I'd say it was a good value for the money with friendly people and clean facilities. We camped here in a Motorhome.

Nice CG. We stayed for 3 nights. Nights were quiet except for the rain and thunder. But we didn't mind those noises. The major road construction work next to the park is near completion with only striping to be done. Rest rooms and showers were quite clean. But no available soap for hand washing after using the toilet. Rocky roads and sites (as the name implies) and many trees but not all provide shade for units. There was no dust problem during our stay. Our site had plenty of room for the 25' TT, the large P/U truck, and the picnic table. The staff members were friendly and not intrusive. We'll be going back again, someday. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
This place is a huge dust bowl. The ad in Woodall's shows very large sites, but many are basically square with little privacy. To add to the dust problem, a large road construction project is underway on the highway fronting the rv park. It appeared there were many long-term residents, but this seems to be the norm in Arizona (snowbirds?). We did not find this park inviting or attractive. We camped here in a Motorhome.
You have to like this park for it's delightful setting in the granite dells north of Prescott but the place is basically a dusty and down-at-the-heels "trailer park" with many of the residents living there permanently (our neighbor had been there 13 years). Nice owners who apparently are waiting for something interesting to happen since they aren't spending any money on maintenance or upgrades. Too bad because the park begs for improvements that would take advantage of the wonderful location. Seems to be the case for almost all the RV parks in Prescott. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Peaceful except for the acacia bugs. Take a hike to the edge of campgrounds and explore
the wonderful rock formations and a beautiful sunrise. We camped here in a Motorhome.

gravel roads, quiet, beautiful rocks! Ask about the trail at rear that takes you to a promontory overlooking a lake. Sites wide offering some privacy. We camped here in a camper.

Check in was fast and easy. We accidently over paid and we were brought a refund (with an apology) right away. Beautiful mountains and great view of Lake watson when you hike up the hills. Only down fall is folks that are staying extended stay had alot of things sitting out around their trailers. We camped here in a camper.

Very interesting park. Huge rocks everywhere (and they are beautiful) It is like camping in a rock canyon. It is dirt and gravel around campsites, but peaceful and quiet, and campsites are at different angles and not too close together. We camped here in a camper.
Well located in Prescott Valley close to town and shopping. No shade at all and can be too windy for awnings. For Elks members only. Quiet location on top of bluff overlooking park. Gravel, mostly level back-in spots, many large rigs. On site RV Host not very helpful, but go into the lodge because the members there were very friendly & welcoming. We camped here in a Motorhome.
An older review mentioned theft concerns. We saw several campers leaving their stuff unattended, with no issues. Sites are generally level side to side, but often have minor to moderate slope from front to back. It's a very nice setting, with good hiking trails. Close to town, convenient. Our rate was the winter rate, when the water spigots are turned off. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Much work has been done to improve the camp sites here and it shows. All the sites are well maintained and very clean. May have a problem getting some rigs level. Vault restrooms are kept very clean. Some of the best hiking/mountain biking trails around. Very quiet. I spent 2 weeks here and could have stayed longer. Only 3 miles from town. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We stayed in March 2011. This FS campground is in a shady Ponderosa Pine forest near several nice hiking trails. Unfortunately this is not a very safe part of Prescott. While we we here, the campground host warned us that two generators had been stolen in the campground during the past 2 weeks. This place sometimes has the feel of a homeless encampment. In fact, one of the local agencies in town provide "free camping vouchers" to the homeless. The campground is within easy walking distance from downtown. A better alternative is Lynx Lake. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This park has been rebuilt to modern standards for a Forest Service Campground. It is 1/2 mile south of Prescott city limits, (pronounced PRESKITT) on Rte 89. Our rate is for Golden Age Pass. It has paved roads and sites for up to 40 feet. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Rating based on a primitive campground. Many sites are situated to allow lots of room between sites and privacy. In Ponderosa pines however not what I would describe as thick forest. Two miles from downtown Prescott. We stayed at park in May mid week and it was quiet,however, we were told on weekends in the summer it gets packed with folks from Phoenix. Compost toilets were clean. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is the first/last time we'll stay here. The HUGE and numerous speed bumps caused the bottom of our car/toad to scrape on them, causing damage. The 5 MPH speed limit in the park apparently doesn't apply to the management/employees as they zip around the park in their carts at 15-20 MPH. Although "big rig friendly", the site we were assigned had trees so close that we could barely extend the slides, and couldn't open the awnings. When the wind blew, it caused the tree branches to scrape the side of the coach. One of our "neighbors" had 5 dogs with them, another had three. They tied them to the BBQ base next to our coach, and their lovely little pets left "deposits" near our coach. Lots of sites contained VERY long term campers, some with RV license tags that had expired many years ago. This left a negative impression, as some of those sites looked pretty run down. On a plus side, the showers provided were clean. We had water heater problems, and my wife used the showers at the park. The location is convenient to northern Prescott, and also allows relatively quick access to the Gateway Mall in central Prescott. We won't be staying here in the future. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Rate reflects monthly rate. I would for the most part agree with previous reviews, and normally would have rated this park a 5 or 6. However, attitude on the part of the person checking me in started me off on a negative note. Then, after I had paid, I found out that the Wi-Fi was only for the people in the short term spaces. After I paid for a month, they put me in the long term spaces, and only then informed me that Wi-Fi was not included in the monthly rate. Nowhere on the web site was this indicated. Had I known it was not included, I would never have stayed here. The park itself adjoins a real park with beautiful hiking trails. The location is scenic and a lake is in the park for those, like me, who Kayak. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We spent a week at this park. First the positives. They put us in a nice spot with many trees, which we greatly appreciated. WiFi and cable worked well. Staff was helpful and friendly. I would give it a 6, if not for the helpfulness of the staff. The location is very nice with trees, a small lake and hiking trails. The laundry room was large and very clean with newer equipment. Water pressure was great as well. Negatives: the park has a rundown appearance and many permanent residents. Since it is an older park (looks like it might have been a KOA at one point), the sites are narrow and small. If some $$ were put into updating the office area and hookups, it could be quite lovely. We would probably stay here again if in the area. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
This is a fairly clean park. I say fairly clean because of a very few irresponsible dog owners. There's some aircraft noise during the day, but at night it's very quiet. Sites are dirt, level or near-level, in various sizes. There are many trees but little shade. To protect against freezing, water spigots are below ground level, with the threaded part facing up and the valve handle facing down. This makes turning the valve handle awkward. Sewer connections are not threaded. Roads are asphalt, gravel, or dirt, adequately wide. There are lots of big speed bumps. Staff are friendly and helpful. In the short-term area, Wi-Fi is strong and usually very fast. Verizon data service works well. The showers lack any separation between the shower itself and the dressing area. Laundry: 8 front-loaders ($1.75), 8 dryers ($0.25 for 8 minutes). Cable: CableOne NTSC and Clear QAM. The Willow Dells Trails are accessible directly from the park and have some great views. We camped here in a Motorhome.
While there could certainly have been a few more amenities, we really loved this park. The store was well-stocked, every employee we came across was friendly, the noise level was low, and the hiking/walking trails around the lake were gorgeous. We saw rabbits, squirrels and birds galore. We would definitely stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Hard to find this campground. We have stayed here a few times when passing through the area. Yes, there are lots of permanent residents, however, each time we have stayed, we have been placed in a separate area closer to the facilities. Has a nice newer laundry, clean restrooms, and great cable RV selection. This park now has Wi-Fi which worked well. The office has a small store for supplies. We would camp here again when next in the area. We camped here in a Motorhome.
About 75% of this camp are full time residents. Some of the overnight area backs up to the residents and they are some very old dumpy RVs. RVs that are sinking into the ground they are so old. A short walk to the lake but it is very very low due to the drought. Its ok for an overnighter. Not a bad place overall. Over stocked store and nice lady at the desk. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Yuck. The drive to this park will get your hopes up, because you pass right by a nice lake and some pretty countryside. Too bad the park isn't on the lake and too bad it isn't kept up. LOTS of long-term people here with many very cluttered sites. Not at all inviting. Host/owner was pleasant enough, but this was not a place we would choose. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This campground changes the rates for camping and cable, without notice. We called 3 days ahead, and when we arrived the rates had increased! There are a lot of residents, and the rules are not enforced on the residents i.e. dogs chained outside, broken down vehicles, trash, RV's badly needing maintenance, etc. The modem is in the store/office, and you stand and check your e-mail with everyone looking over your shoulder. Prescott is great, but this campground is for those who are desperate. We camped here in a Motorhome.
