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. We camped at Verde Valley RV & Camping Resort (Thousand Trails) in a Fifth Wheel.

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.

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. We camped at Verde Valley RV & Camping Resort (Thousand Trails) in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

Jerome, a cute little town at 5200 feet altitude, is less than an hour away.

This was my first time to Verde Valley TT and I found it very nice. Stayed at the very last camping section the furthest in the camp ground and it was very quiet. Had a back in spot that was not very level but the river down below could be heard . Most Thousand Trails camps are pretty primitive meaning the spots are gravel at best and some leveling is needed. I wouldn't have it any other way. Restaurant on site with good home style cooking and small store with some needed stuff. Cool Place. We camped at Verde Valley RV & Camping Resort (Thousand Trails) in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

Checking out Jerome, Montezuma Well and Castle, and Sedona all close by and a must see.

We stayed six days under PA and used it as a base for visiting Sedona and the surrounding sites. Very quiet and nice location in the Verde Valley, out of town about 4 miles and away from hustle and bustle. Spacious gravel sites with large trees. Nice clubhouse with Wi-Fi and grill. Laundry area is clean and nice but requires stored value cards that you have to buy for $2 and then load in $5 increments. So you are practically guaranteed to forfeit some money on the card plus the $2 fee. We would stay here again, given the location and setting. We camped at Verde Valley RV & Camping Resort (Thousand Trails) in a Travel Trailer.

This was our first time staying here, and we really enjoyed this preserve. We were only here for 2 nights, so we stayed in the "H" section, without really investigating other areas of the park. It worked out fine for us, but if you want to be closer to the pool/hot tub, the "B" section would be better. The computers were down at the guard shack, so we could not be advised as to which 50 amp sites were still available. The ranger told us that the manager treats the 50 amp sites as "rentals". We were fine with 30 amp for the 2 nights we were here. The scenery is beautiful, and Cottonwood is only about 10 minutes away, and has all the conveniences you may need. Will definitely return!

The setting of this campground is desert but with enough trees to provide some welcome shade. Many campsites have patches of green grass which is watered and protected by “keep pets off the grass” signs. There are three camping areas. One area, “M Section,” is reserved for long term residents and out of play for those of us who are touring the country. The second area, “H Section” is near the primary Activity Center. This is where the restaurant and store are and where there’s live music a few nights each week. There’s also a nifty mini-golf course – one of the nicest we’ve seen in a Thousand Trails. The third area, “B and C Section,” is farther from the gate but is near a very nice pool and spa, the pickleball courts, playground, and another nice lodge. (There’s another, more distant campground, “A Section,” that is designated for group camping.) I’d say that the second and third campground areas are both attractive choices. If you plan to use the pool you’ll want B and C Section. If you want to be a bit closer to the Activity Center (and campground exit for that matter) you’ll want H Section. There are premium 50 amp sites scattered around the campground and people who use them pay an extra fee of $3, $4, or $5 for using them. I’m sure there’s a reason for the differing amounts but I don’t know what it is. There are a variety of campsite configurations. Many of those that are pull through are “double sites” in which two campers are parked back to back, pointing in opposite directions. However, even in that configuration there’s usually a larger “front yard” that is shared with the one of the campers in the next double site. It’s a workable setup and those sites are quite popular. The campground has added cabins and, in addition to the campground set aside specifically for long term use has sold several sites for annual use. Still, there were many nice sites available all the time we were there. This, though, is a popular campground and there are certain times of the year when it is full. This campground is a real winner for Thousand Trails and we’re already looking forward to future visits here. We camped at Verde Valley RV & Camping Resort (Thousand Trails) in a Fifth Wheel.

This was our third time staying at this RV Park for an annual cycling event we attend and we really like it. Very quiet, nice amount of space so that you are not on top of your neighbor and a lovely place to relax after a full day of activity. We also enjoy just walking around the park in the late afternoon meeting friendly people. We will continue to return to this RV park.

The entrance to the H section of the park has been made wider for easier access for big rigs. There are new improvements to the pool and the pool clubhouse making them more enjoyable. This is a 'first come, first served' campground and many of the nicer sites are now long term leased sites so are no longer available to the regular camper. It is still a nice campground and one of our favorites because it is off the beaten path, no trains and rarely any planes overhead so it is very quiet. In C section at night you can hear the small waterfall located on the Verde river not too far from the camp. We camped at Verde Valley RV & Camping Resort (Thousand Trails) in a Motorhome.

We enjoyed our week in this TT campground. We walked and drove around and saw all the amenities, which were clean, well kept, and the pool looked very inviting. Because we were so busy exploring the area, we did not get a chance to use any of the amenities though. A few reasons I did not give this park a 10. The site layouts are confusing to me. There will be a single site with a grassy area, and then there will be two sites, sharing a utility pole, with very little personal use space. We were camping with family and were lucky to get two sites with the grassy area in-between, so it worked out for us. I think each visit would get a different rating depending on the site you were able to get. And with Thousand Trails, there is no specific site reservation unless you are leasing the site long term. We got great reception with Direct TV. Our MiFi was a bit of a challenge, and we had to get our booster out. It said 4G, but only 1-2 bars. I wish there was a way to elect to use 3G with 4 bars. It's not the park's fault - it is just the geographical location here. All in all, we enjoyed our stay. Nice and quiet. Most sites have some trees for shade. We will come back next year. Rate reflects our TT membership. We camped at Verde Valley RV & Camping Resort (Thousand Trails) in a Fifth Wheel.

This was our first experience with TT campgrounds using our Zone Pass. Like others, we were surprised and dismayed that we had to hunt for a campsite, and since we arrived in the busy season close to 5:00 p.m. the picking was slim. Sites were oddly laid out, some with grass, some without, some with almost no personal space, and I think all had shared utility post locations. We ended up in a site that had quite an incline to the personal area, although nearly level gravel pad for our 38' RV. I don't like the idea that you have no particular site available. Once settled though, we discovered the park was a true resort park, with heated pool, hot tub, clubhouse, recreation facilities and lots of planned activities including live music and dancing on Saturday nights. We enjoyed our one-week stay and it was convenient enough to all the attractions and activities of the larger Sedona area.

I would have given this park a higher rating had it not been for the horrible experience we had with our reservation. We arrived on a Friday afternoon and checked in at the front gate. It was at this point that we learned all sites were first come and that not one particular site had been reserved for us. We were told to make our way down to the A lot and choose a spot that was open. However, when we got to A, there were no spots open. We immediately called the office and were told that the two reservation systems had overbooked the park and that we were out of luck. The office did not seem to care about our problem and explained that a large group was coming in and had priority over our reservation. We then ran into one of the housekeeping staff, who took an interest in our predicament and proposed putting us on a row of RV sites that had been closed due to sewer problems. She thought our one rig wouldn't task the system. The park office agreed to this solution and we ended up staying the week in a lovely site with full hook up. The park amenities including the heated pool and spa were nice. WiFi is only available at the clubhouse. We ended up having a nice stay, but the attitude of the park staff (excluding housekeeping staff) needs improving. If you decide to stay here, confirm that a spot has been reserved for you.

Nice park with the majority of sites in a canyon setting. Security gate, 2 clubhouses, restaurant on site, plenty of hiking trails, pool/spa, and open spaces. Unusual layout, since the front gate is a long drive to your site...especially if you're in section A, B or C. This wouldn't be too much of an issue except for the speed limits: 5 mph when driving through campground, 10mph on all other roads. We were flashed the "slow down sign" when going 7mph! The internet was very slow, and sometimes non-existent, good cell signal on AT&T. Would stay there again for a short period of time.

Verde Valley TT is a really nice park. Kept up very well. Very level and lots of activities. The Grill, surprisingly enough, has very good food. They had a fun little valentines day party with dinner and entertainment. The pool area is very big and clean! We really enjoyed this park. We only had 2 complaints and one is not the parks fault. One, Verizon and At&T both say it's 4g but the service in this little valley is terrible. Two, we got into the hot tub and it was not even as warm as a warm bath tub. It was very cold out in the evenings so the hot tub was unusable. But all in all we loved this park and would come back. We have a TT membership and we stayed in a spot with 30amp so we stayed for free. We camped at Verde Valley RV & Camping Resort (Thousand Trails) in a Fifth Wheel.

Still not that great because of budget restraints but still a nice place to spend our down time. Improvements have been made since our last stay here. Sites are mostly level in H section and power, water and sewer easily accessible. Wi-Fi is available at the Activity Center but our cards worked most of the time at the site. There are plenty of activities in the park and nearby in Cottonwood. We enjoy the time we spend here and will return.
