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.

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.

We took advantage of the three month option and it was a great place to "winter" this year. The staff is very friendly and competent. The park has hiking trails, lots of activities and plenty of sites. The new dog run is a nice addition. Issues or concerns are addressed immediately by the manager and staff.

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

Tips for other Campers:

Lots of historical sites to explore...Montezuma's Castle and Well are worth the short trip.

Sedona is stunning, with lots of hikes. If you are into hiking, buy the trails map and take advantage!

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.

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.
