Beautiful state park just outside of Cottonwood, good hiking trails, spacious sites. This is the second time we've stayed here and probably won't be the last. Verizon and AT&T worked well. - DRFink
Great park in a lovely setting. Many hiking trails in a variety of terrain. They are a little behind on tree trimming, though, so watch overhead clearance in some sites. Good big rig access with many pull through sites. Fire pits and picnic tables at all sites. Firewood for sale at camp host site. - bobcovey
Loved this park, lots of hiking trails, spacious sites, good Verizon and AT&T coverage, close to town for groceries / supplies but very quiet and feeling that you are a long way away from civilization in the campground. Loved it, will return, already have a stay planned here next spring. - DRFink
We loved this park because the staff was helpful and friendly and selected us a great site according to our requirements. We dry camp and are used to not having amenities, though the basics at this park were fine. I thought this park was great for what we paid. Yes, there were live-ins, but they were friendly and in my opinion, only a couple of the rigs were run down. - Shughes
1st Impr: A dry desert hill. Customer is not valued. Reservations consisted of pull in Sunday, pay on Mon. I agreed to pay cash on Mon. BUT card charged on Sat, before arrival. Most spots cannot accommodate LG RVs. Noone to call. Took a spot so RV would fit, sent them email. Mon: Lawn guy grumbled we aren't supposed to be here. Continues with rude glances our way. Called office asking why they ch'd our card: bookkeeping excuse. Told to move, but already set up. Customer is not valued in this place. - GypsyAnna
At first glance it seemed to have a lot of full timers, but they are nice. The spot we had was in the river area with a great view and easy access so the kids could go fishing. We didn't spend a lot of time here but that is only because there is so much to do so close. Will be back next year - Emma P.
Rate paid is based on a one month stay. Most of the sites here are occupied by permanents. About a dozen sites are reserved for short term stays, though some of those are seasonal occupants. We had what seemed to be the best site in the park, #54. Our door opened onto the grassy area next to the restrooms so we only had neighbors on one side of us. Each site has a picnic table. Even though the park is on busy hwy 89A, it is nice and quiet at night. Everyone in the park was very friendly, staff was very helpful. Location is convenient to shopping and a short drive to Jerome or Sedona. Park WiFi worked intermittently, sometimes fast, sometimes slow, sometimes it dropped you. Verizon signal was good. Lots of trees in the park provide welcome shade on hot days. Sites are a little close together. - Metamorphosis Road
This small aging park is home to mostly permanent residents who have no plans to use their RVs for travel and to seasonal residents who aren't fussy about the appearance of their surroundings. We found it adequate for a short stay to tour the area. Our site was spacious, level and shaded. Staff was friendly and helpful. Wifi was initially slow and unreliable, but there times when it was fast, reliable, and robust. Dogs were not allowed on the few patches of grass in the park!? - Roger H.
Nice little park with a lot of permanent resident sites. Felt very much like a "neighborhood". VERY friendly staff and welcome gifts given. The "lounge" was a bonus area to be able to stretch out and search Internet (very good Wi-Fi connectivity) or read. Laundry was fine and bathrooms were clean. Lots of shopping and dining nearby. You have a very busy road to pull onto, so keep that in mind when making a left turn. - mallardcamper

This is a huge "campground" type park. There are a variety of types of spaces. A lot of them have two sites that face each other and share a patio area. We paid extra for 50 amp and have a private ample size space with bushes on the sides but it is very unlevel. We had to put numerous blocks on one side. There is only dirt and old grass for the patio area. It is quiet. I definitely do not think the park is worth the price. WIFI at your site is not included. - JackieD
We spent most of the winter at Thousand Trails, in two different sites in H section. The CG was extremely busy this year and late comers had difficulty finding a site most days. There are member generated activities nearly every day, every week. The Home Style Restaurant offers an okay menu and an attitude. Verde Valley offers several locations to get out and hike, or shop, bike, quad, and several National Park Monuments and State Parks. Staff is friendly and helpful, propane is available on site five days a week, a little pricey but saves having to drive into Cottonwood or Camp Verde to refill tanks. There are several changes being made in the park, adding four more "get-away" cabins in H section this spring. Many folks spend the winter here in Verde Valley, in long term sites and several reside in the park year round. Sites are kept neat and clean, no eye sores. Two of the H section sites have been covered with rock and cleaned up for handicap access. We enjoy the time we spend here and will return again this next fall. - SilverBear
The campground is very scenic. When you register at the front gate you are given a map and guidelines and told to find your own spot. This was my only interaction with staff. The campground is conveniently located near Jerome, Sedona, and other attractions. The water pressure is low. The rate cited is Passport America plus the $4 daily resort fee. I did not use any of the resort features. - Liz Carmel
