4 Parks near Cottonwood, Arizona
Jun 2015 - $25.00
We loved this place and would return frequently if it weren't just a little too far from home for us. We stayed 7 nights. 50-amp service and water worked great. Verizon coverage is great. There are good views from nearly every site and the hosts did a great job of keeping the place clean. Our site was level. Some of the pull-thrus are a little close to each other, but most sites are spacious. The park is just outside of town and there is a dog park just a few minutes from the campground (next to the ballpark you pass on the way in). The hiking trails are nice and the fishing lagoons were very peaceful.
The only reason I gave this a 9 rather than 10 is because the dump site is so far from the campground (approx 1.5 miles round trip). I made 4 trips total with a 15-gallon tote and it took some time! - Brad & Angela

Sites are widely spaced, and most are long enough for our 40 ft. Rv + toad. Some sites are more level than others (70 and 82 are pretty level). Lower loop has shade, but requires local knowledge on tree interference. Upper loops are open. Water and electric are fine. AT&T LTE is strong. We stayed a week and love the place. It's very quiet, even though close to town. There are many walking and biking trails. - Just Dave

We were supposed to be here a week, but left after 3-nights. We were in the wooded Quail loop but found it too close to other campers and just not that nice overall. We had spent nights in other AZ state parks before getting here so our expectations were higher than the reality.
Next time we would choose the upper loop- it is sunny, not shady but there is more separation between sites and nice mountain views.
Water and electricity at each site, but no sewer. There are two dump stations at the park entrance/exit.
The park is 15 miles from Sedona which is very beautiful. The town of Cottonwood where the park is located has good stores and such, even a Home Depot. Plus, there's an "old town" section with some surprisingly good restaurants and watering holes. - Creativepart

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

If you love the outdoors...pine trees, fresh air, mountain views, friendly campers...this is the place for you. Nothing fancy, so if that's what you want go elsewhere. We loved it! It has a selection of areas to choose from, some more isolated than others. We took the first area near the clubhouse, great laundry room and restaurant. Restaurant is very convienent.. but just that..nothing special and over priced. Shopping is 5 min. away. Perfect anchor for visits to Sedona, Jerome, Old Town. Plenty to do! Or great place to " not do"! - 07pacearrow

Thousand Trails is the park of last resort near the Sedona Red Rock Country. It's 5 miles from Cottonwood and another 18 from Sedona. Was only facility available for Memorial Day weekend and was packed, mostly with families with kids and dogs who seemed to enjoy just being in the desert. Sites are unassigned; you drive around until you find one you like which we consider an abdication of management's responsibilities. No Wi-Fi at sites and very slow internet at pools. Speed limit varies from 5-10 mph, including the mile-plus drive from front entrance to sites. Staff in carts cut in front of vehicles thought to be going too fast - a dangerous practice considering severe dropoffs without guardrails on the entry road. Would stay again only if desperate. - Mtmoi

Rate based on monthly stay. Long drive from gate to campground on paved road. 3 sections. One section (where we stayed) closest to main clubhouse and dog run. Others closer to smaller clubhouse, pool, playground & pickleball courts. Roads inside were also gravel but lots of loose rocks. Site was wide and long, 50 amp. Good Verizon, Wi-Fi OK with repeater. Good satellite and over the air TV.
This is a Thousand Trails/Encore campground. One of the "nicest" ones we've been to. The sites in other section were buddy sites looked tight. - jcpjane
