Made reservations in January, and the park was unable to provide me my 50 amp service when I arrived. Park is under construction and electricity is intermittent. Road diverted around the park. Security personnel checked us in and were helpful. First come, first served, as sites are not assigned. Lots of permanent residents. Would NOT recommend staying here till construction has been completed. We camped at Verde Valley RV & Camping Resort (Thousand Trails) in a Fifth Wheel.

Been here a couple of times in the autumn. Park has electrical issues with Arizona Power so many sites are off line. Restaurant is closed. Not many activities. Permanent residents have their set routines. Little opportunities for kids. Lots of infrastructure repairs needed. Manager trying to get things done but corporate isn't allocating the funds. New recreation person is trying to get organized and plan activities. The concrete and pavement at entrance was replaced. Nearly all good sites are taken by permanent or seasonal use thus limit better sites. Many sites need levelling. We were there during the annual sheep crossing where 2000 sheep utilize a right of way through the park for the annual trek from Tucson to Williams. It was interesting. No plans to return to the area. We camped at Verde Valley RV & Camping Resort (Thousand Trails) in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

For first time visitors to Cottonwood, Sedona, Jerome there are plenty of things to do. Otherwise, just a very quiet place to sit.

We were in area "A", the newest area in park. It was fine, however the sites were very close together. The good part was they were back to back, close with more room on front side. The pool area was very clean and nice. Maintenance throughout the park was well done by friendly staff. We camped at Verde Valley RV & Camping Resort (Thousand Trails) in a Fifth Wheel.

Easy to find. What you expect for a campground, trees,some grass. All sites have tables. Staff and other campers are super nice, friendly park. Many campers are long term or permanent. Hard to get reservations for short term camping. Spa was broken and this was dissapionting. Horse shoe pits need repair. Pool was beautiful and lodges were clean and nice. I will come again. We camped at Verde Valley RV & Camping Resort (Thousand Trails) in a Travel Trailer.

Tips for other Campers:

Go see the national parks, red rocks ,Indian ruins, clarkdale,Jerome,and Sedona

This is my second stay. This time, all guests were concentrated in one area while the park was upgrading the electrical system. Sites are all gravel, level, and most are spacious. Very quiet - far from the road. Nice clubhouse with short-order cafe and a small store with DVD rentals. Large, clean laundry. Very good security and friendly staff. My Verizon hotspot worked fine. We camped at Verde Valley RV & Camping Resort (Thousand Trails) in a Fifth Wheel.

Tips for other Campers:

Stock up - plenty of good shopping in Cottonwood, but it's 25 minutes away. I stay here because of the proximity to historic sites and neat towns, especially Sedona - which is one of the most beautiful places in the West.

This is our winter destination. Between November and February we spent a major part of our time here. Last summer there was an electrical storm which caused major damage to not only the CG systems but two nearby towns were also effected. Sections A,B & C are shut down, only occupied by permanent residents in a few sites. H section is packed and reservations are nearly impossible to get, plus if you don't have a reservation you won't get into the CG and current reservations can not be extended. Until Encore sees fit to upgrade the electrical system in Sections A,B & C, the utility provider will not increase input to the CG. With all that to consider, this is a nice CG. Members maintain activities available for anyone and everyone to participate, and staff is friendly and as helpful as possible. The Home Style Grill no longer exists, closed in November. CG staff keeps the restrooms and showers clean, the pool is closed for the season and the hot tub is down for repairs. We enjoy the time we spend here and will return. We camped at Verde Valley RV & Camping Resort (Thousand Trails) in a Fifth Wheel.

Tips for other Campers:

Cottonwood is 8 miles away and there you will find excellent Medical Facilities, Grocery shopping (Fry's, Safeway & Food City), Walmart and several very good restaurants. Fuel at Fry's is less costly than other locations.

Friendly staff. FHU 50 amp with good Verizon and Direct TV coverage. Nice café with reasonable prices and great food! All the amenities. Flat site which was newly upgraded. Price is for the 50 amp upgraded site. One of the nicer Thousand Trails RV parks. Have stayed there before and plan to stay there again. We camped at Verde Valley RV & Camping Resort (Thousand Trails) in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

Places to visit : Sedona, Montezuma National Historic Site, Montezuma Well National Historic Site, Tuzigoot Indian Ruins. Old Town of Cottonwood. Copper Museum in Clarkdale AZ. Lots to see in this area.

This is a very nice park, certainly nice for a TT park. The park is very large and spread out. Sections A,B&C are spacious pull thrus with some 50Amp. Paved roads and gravel sites with nice grass areas between them. You definitely need to look at this area before settling for H section. Some sites not level but manageable. In contrast to a previous reviewer I think one of the best things about TT is the ability to pick my own site and not to be forced into their choice. I get to chose my neighbor, my orientation for view and trees and distance to facilities, it's great!! WiFi only in club house. Verizon data does not work and ATT works but very slow. You do need to reserve 50Amp ahead. The grounds are tidy and the facilities are clean. There is access to the river. The restaurant food was good and reasonable priced at $8-9. It is about 5 miles to a Super Walmart and a nice town. My rate is Zone Pass with $5 for 50Amp. We camped at Verde Valley RV & Camping Resort (Thousand Trails) in a Fifth Wheel.

The park was having electric problems and we were able to get the last 50 amp site (really needed in Aug). No one else was allowed into section 'A' because of the electric problems so it was wonderfully quiet. We had a pull thru buddy site that was downhill facing south but we came prepared with a solar shield for the windshield. Music on the weekends at the restaurant in the main clubhouse with dancing. Restrooms are always spotless. We like the long pull thrus (70') 'H' section has many shaded sites that are pull thru but they were all full. We will return. We camped at Verde Valley RV & Camping Resort (Thousand Trails) in a Motorhome.

Ming House in Cottonwood is a good Chinese buffet.

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

Tips for other Campers:

If you need 50amp you need to reserve ahead of time. These sites are limited. We parked in a 30amp for 2 nights and then moved. Being we were staying 2 weeks it was worth it.

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

Tips for other Campers:

Hike, bike and exercise your Jeep. Many driveable trails around Sedona and some requring high clearance vehicles. Get comprehensive free trail Forest Service map and $14 hiking map at Forest Service office near Oak Creek. Other maps available at Cottonwood Chamber info center. Excellent dining at Nick's in old Cottonwood. Tuzigoot National Monument worth a half day. Ruben's is excellent shop for minor car/RV repairs.

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

Tips for other Campers:

Great place to see Sedona, Jerome, even Flagstaff. Go to winery at the gate- fun place.

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.

First the good. This park is very close to Sedona and Jerome. It is convenient for doing all types of tourist activities. The bad is the condition of the park. It is showing its age and the cleanliness level is in desperate need of attention. Clubhouse needs to be mopped and dusted, bathrooms cleaned and the hot tub had such a scum around the top, someone had carved their initials into it. Disgusting. The sites are "buddy style" which mean the hookups are in the center and two rigs drive in from opposite directions and park literally inches from one another. Sites are gravel or sand if holes have been filled. Multiple sites are being taken by the "annuals" who appear to have made this their permanent residence. Will likely not stay here again.

Our first time here. My parents brought our son's here every summer in the 80's and 90's. They loved this park. We found the staff to be friendly and always willing to help. Ate several times for dinner at the restaurant located on site. Pricing was on par with others in town.

Most sites required some leveling, but if you arrive during the week, you can find sites that are level. Traveling with kids? Stay in loops "A through C". These loops are near the pool and the river. We will stay here again. Stayed at Verde Valley in a motor home. We camped at Verde Valley RV & Camping Resort (Thousand Trails) in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

Visit the National Monuments around the area and try the restaurant on site.
