There is no pool, no WiFi, no cable . . . Well, not much of anything here other than an overpriced restaurant. The sites are small, not level (We have three 4X4 boards under our jacks.), and the roads wore out years ago. But the fare is the lowest in town and everything works. If you are just stopping for the night, it's an easy in and out. If you are here for Flagstaff, BB's is just on the edge of the city which is very close, and there is bus service to downtown and the mall. We like Black Bart's and stay here every time we're visiting Flagstaff. And, the office workers are wonderful. The only bad is there is a huge parking lot adjacent to the RV park. They run their engines all night. If the wind is blowing toward the RVs, it becomes hard to breathe for some. - The Penguin

Stayed several nights in a 40' class A with tow vehicle. Overall, this campground has not been upgraded for a very long time. The interior roads are in bad shape, site's concrete patios are broken up, most sites have water ruts (sites are mostly gravel/dirt), and mole holes are everywhere (my wife twisted an ankle). Two of the three site pics on the website are of one site closest to the office which they do maintain. Our site was so unlevel that I used 3" leveling blocks under left rear wheels, 6" on right rear as well as extending my rear jacks fully on top of 6"blocks. Many campers could not connect to either electrical, water or sewer without extensions. There is no cable or WIFI. The laundry room is clean and affordable. We should have researched this campground before committing (e.g. checked reviews and satellite views) and we will not stay here again. Many people come here for an overnight (get off the freeway) stay, or to visit the on site restaurant - which we did not try. Verizon and AT&T cell coverage is good.
Research reviews carefully. You will be camping next to a noisy truck stop. The most level sites are 2-24, but they are closest to the truck stop. Sites 25-55 have the most unlevel sites. 112-131 are not too bad. You may need electrical, water or sewer extensions. - MarksOnTheRoad

The roads and sites need repair. Location is good. Needs some TLC. Lots of full timers right in front, they should be in the back, out of the way. The sewer connection was using a piece of cement hooked to a metal handle. Very hard to connect. One nice thing: We went to the Steak House and experienced singing waiters and waitresses. That was excellent, the food as well. - Donna Hintze

Bonito NFS campground is nestled under tall Ponderosa pines and located just before Sunset Crater NM. For the most part the branches are high enough not to be an issue.
The road into the park as well as the interior road and sites are on asphalt. There is a combination of back-in as well as pull-outs sites. Most of the back-in sites are narrow but are spacious between sites. Most of the sites can accommodate a large rig and possibly a tow. There are (3) bathhouses with flush toilets but no showers. In the back of each bathhouse is a non-threaded faucet designed to fill your jugs. It is not designed to fill your RV tank. Fresh water for your RV tank as well as a dump station is not available. Every site had a picnic table and fire ring. Some of the sites are more leveled then others.
There is no reception from a Verizon air card or cell phone. We were able to make a phone call by driving to the Lava Flow parking lot about 2 miles away.
The base rate for this campground is $22. The price seems a bit high for dry camping. Perhaps the cost is due to the fact that concessionaires now manage this park. Senior discount cards pay $11.
This was a very peaceful, relaxing campground and we would definitely come back here again. - adsaxs

very safe feeling. picnic table on concrete and asphalt pad for trailer. a bit expensive without Sr Pass 50% discount since no water for RV and no dump station and no shower. but overall, a beautiful, convenient park and I would come back. - Camden12

We arrived to find that there is no water available for RVs to take on board. The camp host was kind enough to call the neighboring group camp and make arrangements for us to get water for a small charge. We enjoyed seeing Sunset Volcano Monument (the visitor's center is across the street). Also close by is Wupatki National Monument which was very interesting to visit. The park itself is very nice. Enjoyed our visit. We stayed here with a Golden Access Pass. - hbcamper

We came in at night in a big 5th wheel. Most of the other campgrounds said we were too big. This place had easy to find big pull-thru sites for short stay guests right near the front of the park. And right by the nice little bath house. The trees were nice. No pool but we didn't want one. - Kimra

Nice quiet setting in the tall pines, convenient to town and sightseeing, but roads, sites and facilities in need of serious upgrading. Very helpful staff didn't offset excessive daily rate given the condition of the park. 70 percent of the sites are taken up by permanent residents with mobile homes in various conditions. WiFi was marginal at best and cable access is limited to a few sites. Trees limit satellite reception in most sites. - skigoldsboro

I think we got the only site without shade. There are plenty of trees. The people are nice. It's 5 miles outside of town. So it's real quiet. There was plenty of room to drive. I was able to back in to my space no problem (and that's a feat for me). It's only 35 miles to Sedona. I would stay here again. - Wendell48

This is CG is dry camping with flush toilets and water spigots, in the middle of northern AZ pines. The whole CG is very clean but the volcanic cinder tracks into the motorhome at every opportunity.
There are smaller pull-through sites along the side of the main drive as well as larger back in sites radiating out. Our pull-though was very level and trees were cut back to clear our roof.
The only downside is that there's absolutely no cell signal. Driving 2 miles toward Highway 89 will get you usable signals. - LM&TinView

Wow: loved this place. It does not take reservations, and we came in July, late in the day. Lots of lovely, spacious spots to choose from. The rangers say it is the last to fill up. Forested, natural sites, level, far from your neighbors. There is a ranger program, toilets. Very peaceful. Great location for Walnut Canyon, Sunset Crater, Wupatki ruins. No hook ups. I will return. The staff was so very accommodating, friendly and checked on us soon after arrival. They will deliver ice and firewood for a fee. - kallee

We stay here every time we are in the area. There are sites that are just a pullout and others that are back in type. Some are big enough for big motorhomes and tents are welcomed. No water, no sewer, no dump. There is potable water near restrooms and they allow you 5 gallons. Thin forest atmosphere, very well maintained. Flagstaff and area is a Dark Sky area. No outside lights. Great area to stargaze.
The Camphosts are very friendly, they sell firewood and have an ice machine at the campground also.
Rangers have presentations at the amphitheater on weekends, also other activities like hiking. - jlfinaz

We have stayed in this national forest campground before and will again. It gets a lot of weekend usage from Flagstaff. - scampreviewer

I agree with Guinness's very thorough assessment of this campground. My family and I stayed one night (Saturday) in site 26, a back-in site. The site was slightly higher near the road, but since my 24' motorhome is lower in the front, leveling was not required. This being a Saturday night, we worried about a noisy neighbor, but promptly at 10 PM, they quieted down. We were very pleasantly surprised. If we are ever in this area again, we will definitely stay here again. No AT&T connection. - TARDISRV

Dry camping in the Coconino National Forest. There isn't much around, so plan to stock up before you visit. The campground is big rig friendly, easy in/easy out. Interior roads and sites are paved. There are two loops (A&B) in this campground. Loop B is reservable online and Loop A is not, at least at the time of our visit. Loop A is first come, first served, and there are 15 spaces in Loop A. Had we known there were first come, first served spaces, we would not have reserved online since we were planning to arrive on a Monday. Although we reserved online, we decided to give up the reserved spaces and stay in a site in Loop A for the four days we were there. Our site (site 11 in Loop A) was level, but not all sites were level. Some sites have more space between them and the next site, but all sites are nicely spaced. Some sites offer more shade than others. There isn't much privacy between sites, though. There are flush toilets at various locations throughout the campground, shower facilities in one building only, a dump station, and a water fill station. The water fill hose is located on the side of the shower building. The one restroom we visited was clean. We didn't use the showers, but we were told by the camp host that the cost is $3 for 5 minutes. Each campsite has a fire ring, a grill, a picnic table, and a designated tent space. There is plenty of open space for walking pets. Although we did have a couple of unwanted guests (mice) join us while at this campground, we enjoyed our stay and will return when passing through the area. It's a beautiful campground that's kept clean by the camp hosts and the park service workers. - Guinness

We spent 3 nights here. As others have mentioned, it's just an OK park, old and in serious need of upgrading. Woody would probably roll over in his grave if he saw the park today. For $37.00/night, seemed pretty overpriced. Our site was hopelessly out of level in both directions. Used every piece of lumber I had with me and still not enough. Power is 30 amps, and the outlets are only about 1 foot above ground. Ours had been hit and bent over, so it was nearly impossible to connect without lying on the ground. Easily repaired, but they haven't bothered for some reason.
Main railway lines are just 1/2 mile to the north, and this is THE main railway corridor, so there is a 24/7 constant train noise roar.
Roads are gravel, and sites are red dirt. And yes, it makes a mess in your RV. Fortunately, no rain, couldn't deal with red mud.
Staff is nice enough. One other note. There is NO in park lighting other than one on the restrooms, so it's DARK everywhere, no walking around without a flashlight, mot to mention security concerns from our perspective.
Also, the sidewalk around the restrooms has collapsed, and is nearly impossible to walk on for older folks. A hazard at best, and again, not a hard repair, but no one seems to care. Big red flag for me to stay away next time. No problem swiping my credit card though! - AlaskaJack

Very clean, friendly, quiet campground! The view of Twin Peaks from our campsite was just wonderful! The owner went above and beyond the call of duty to make our stay perfect....and it was.
Thanks! - clhamann1

This campground is really just ok. However, for the money, it's probably the best value in Flagstaff. The sites are all thick, dark, dirt. You can imagine how much fun that is to deal with with small children. Some sites are quite spacious while others are quite small. The campground seems to may a strong attempt to place campers into the sites they are best suited to. Our site was perfectly adequate for our 35' travel trailer and Excursion, but there were many sites that would not have been adquate. The campground does fill up on the weekends, so make a reservation. The facilities are in poor shape. The laundry room has no hot water and many of the machines are broken. The bathrooms are clean but in need of a remodel. Rate reflects the monthly rate for a family of 7. - JPen365

This is a nice, well-kept campground nestled in the ponderosa pines. Our site (#2) was satellite friendly, but we were unable to connect to the lodge's WiFi, even with our WiFiRanger booster. WiFi aside, the staff was courteous and friendly; restrooms and laundry clean and well maintained. A previous reviewer mentioned that sites are not big rig friendly, and while I tend to agree, our site was more than ample. Walmart and Bashas' just a short drive north on AZ89. The recreation area is collocated with Ft Tuthill County Park where Pickin' in the Pines is a popular annual bluegrass event. Hiking trails abound, and the urban trail will take you on foot or bike to the aforementioned Walmart. The only downside is that sites are without septic hook up. If your stay takes you beyond the capacity of your tanks, breaking camp to dump can be a pain. Overall we thought this campground was a good value and will visit again. - CO2RV

We did not have reservations. We arrived on a Friday afternoon about 5:00. Greeted by wonderful staff. We were too big for one site, but they immediately told us what all sites they KNEW we would fit in. They told us to hurry and hookup as Friday nights are free hamburgers and hot dogs. We went up to the clubhouse patio and enjoyed a free supper. Horse shoes, volleyball, card, dice. Small store with beer available. Very shady. They have yurts, cabins, A-Frames too. We will return. - DigMyPast

Sites are very small, tight and NOT level. They are in the process of rebuilding the restrooms in the camping area. Showers and restrooms available near the office. I would NOT consider this campground to be "big rig friendly." Close to Flagstaff. Some over the air TV. No road noise. We would stay here again. - thetravelkids

Nice campground with a variety of facilities. KOAs are almost always dependable but this one is nicer than most. There were two dog parks with a couple of agility things which our dog really enjoyed. Note that the weekend rate was $50/night even with the KOA discount. Surprisingly there was no one to guide us to our site although this is a pretty big campground. - storms

Lots of spaces, but hard to get our fifth wheel in. Tight corners. Very outdated and dingy bathrooms, but the biggest thing is how much trash and debris in campsites-butts, bottle caps, plastic junk, etc. this KOA needs an overhaul! - Jenna69

Interior roads were very narrow but space was long enough for RV and tow car. The 36ft motorhome next to me had a difficult time getting out of his spot. Great entrance to hiking trails from back side of park. Very good reception for my cell phone (Verizon) and Dish TV system. Had cable but did not use. Entrance was tight but great to have stop light at entrance. - sandyinpine

We enjoyed our stay here, excellent location a few miles south of Flagstaff. Tall trees, lots of shade, nice bike and walking path. Spacious overall park with an amphitheater for events etc. Many campground sites and the road were hard to discern. We have a 30ft travel trailer and anything bigger would have to be careful negotiating turns and trees, and the sites aren't that big. We had a water/sewer site and it worked fine, had a picnic table and fire ring. No electricity available. No bathrooms, just Sani-huts, but they were clean. We were unable to connect to the WiFi, the signal was nonexistent to very weak. Verizon cell signal was weak, but usable. The campground hosts are from Recreation Resource Management and were friendly and helpful. The rate was $25 for a water/sewer site, and $20 for a dry site. - trussman

We really like this campground and how quiet it can be. There are only about 7 spaces with water + sewer hookups, and there is a dump station. - joester

This park makes it into our top 10 weird camping spots. We loved the location. Close to town, in the shaded woods, and near walking/hiking/biking trail. And $16 was a nice price, too, but that's the end of the good. There are no discernible roads and barely any obvious site. It's really tough to figure out which are tent sites and which are RV sites. We like boondocking, but when paying money for a site, I do like to have a "site." Tons of ruts which is non-trivial in monsoon season, but these turn into arroyos rather quickly. No clear ways in/out. No facilities beyond portapotties. Only a few sites with any hookups. Park happened to be pretty empty, but it was still noisy. No real supervision/camp host presence outside of office hours when the nice fellow checks you in. It's an adventure sorta like the ziplining business next door to the campground. - JCLC

Cash Only! This is a family run park very conveniently located and significantly less expensive than the other RV parks in town. Most of the residents appear to spend the entire summer here but are friendly to newbies. All pull through sites, gravel, that are quite tight. ALL Pull through spots, can be tight. All gravel. We only stayed one night on our way to San Diego. Will definitely come back. Owners are just wonderful. - JanneC

Easy to get to, convenient location. Although it's right off a busy highway, it's set back into the trees, attenuating the traffic noise somewhat. Site was very long and level, though quite narrow. A little tight driving through the park, but not horrible. Customer service was good. Wifi was good, as was Verizon signal. - KAP99

Friendly, helpful staff. Improved grounds from our last stay, and a dollar or two less! Handy to National Parks and other sites in the Flagstaff area. - W Davidson
