3 RV Parks near Holbrook, Arizona

Easy on and off the freeway. Basically a big gravel area with tiny sites. The check in lady was very friendly and let us drive around to pick our spot. Sites were very tight and the bathrooms were horrible. - Cindy Sue

This is a great little RV park. Sites are level and very well laid out. Good distance between RVs and excellent service in the office. It is an older park with some mature trees which does present some difficulties with larger rigs but not too bad . This is a great spot to visit the painted Desert and petrified forest. - Reddingscott

A week stay to explore the area. Really only great activity was the Petrified Forest and Painted Desert. This is a buddy park set up which is not our favorite. While there is an area designated as a dog walk it is pure gravel along a fence. We did find Hunt Park not far away that had grass and was dog friendly. - Tony Connie and Rusty

I'm rating this campground based on the fact that they only provide electric hook-up at a rate of $10 ($10.75 after tax). Sites #1-4 have a trench that would make it difficult to back a trailer into without possibly hitting the back support legs, but truck campers and vans have been using those sites without problem. The rest of sites #5-10 are flat and level. All sites are back-in but the area for maneuvering is spacious and easy to get the job done, even for newbies. They only offer 30 amp service, but we tripped the breaker and discovered it's only rated for 20 amps. They keep the electric boxes locked so you must arrive while the gift shop (west side) is open from 11am-6pm. There is absolutely no water here other than bottled water you can purchase from the gift shop. They explained it's well water that is really cruddy and they only use it for sanitation needs. The lady that runs the museum gift shop on the east side lives in her trailer behind the building and even she hauls her water in from the town of Holbrook. We filled our water and emptied the sewer tanks before we arrived, so we enjoyed resting here for a week. We wanted to see the supermoon occurring 11/14/16 and the night skies here are wide, open, and bright - perfect spot for astronomical events.
We work online so Verizon service is important - we got 3 strong bars of LTE (50-60% strength) without needing our WE boost. 3 bars of steady voice signal. I also noticed among the wifi networks that someone was using T-mobile as their hotspot, so apparently this one works here too.
Across the street (east side), you can camp for free. There are several teepees built from plywood that anyone with a sleeping bag can use for free - score one for the traveling car campers! - Sara C.

We stayed in the campground with 30 amp service and thought it was more than adequate for our needs. We chose a large site, which was level and easy to back into. Some of the sites did have a trench of sorts that had to be crossed when backing in, but for the most part, people had no trouble getting leveled out. We would definitely stay here again. Our unit is self-contained, so we didn't miss having a toilet or water on site. - Bobbi1948

Mostly this is to refine some points of these campgrounds. There are 2 Museums at this entrance to Petrified National Park. The one on the west side of the road has 30 amp power and that site cost $10.75/day. The Museum on the east side has the free camping. There are about 6 sites up front with de-energized 30 amp plugs. There are multiple dry camping sites behind these sites. There was water available but I was told by a gentleman in the store that he wouldn't put it in his radiator or give to a dog. This place has flat parking, is the only place within 25 miles, is right at the entrance to the Park, and it's free. It also has pretty good Verizon MiFi 4G service. You should come with a full fresh water tank and empty waste tanks, and full fuel tanks in your rig and your toad. - pumper9x9

This appears to be a park in transition. Yes it is all gravel but you are in the desert after all. We did have an end site so we had plenty of room. They could do a little better in marking the roadways so that you know how far you can pull you camper into the spot. The premium sites are still being worked but look like they will be great. They have wood walls between each site for privacy. Looks like they are getting new tables and furniture as well. Lots of new trees that will improve the looks of the park. New cottages being built, patios being added, and ground work being done. Very clean and the cowboy bbq adds a nice touch. The wifi was terrible. It would keep cutting on and off. They need more repeaters throughout the park. I do agree with another reviewer that the fresh water right next to the sewer is not very sanitary. We would stay again if in the area. - John Borajkiewicz

This is a KOA in transition. It's obvious that they are upgrading many of the full hook up sites and when finished these sites will be pretty good. However in the present what you get is a gravel site with a picnic table thrown in and tightly packed sites. If you get anything but their deluxe sites then be prepared to see your neighbors up close and personal. We lucked out and had an end unit and this gave us way more room then most, so ask for one if available. The drawback is that WIFI reception is far from the office and spotty at best. I also did not like that the water line and sewer were right next to each other, not a very sanitary set up. Overall acceptable overnight stop or a couple of days like we did so we could visit the Petrified Forest (about 25 miles away). - LucyS

Holbrook - Petrified Forest KOA - All gravel, but no dust (some have said "parking lot" - a little better compared to some camps I've been); very easy off I-40. Very clean; nice store; Allowed be to wash to front of my rig of dust and bugs; Wifi (doesn't seem very fast at all but I am on the last site), using my Verizon 2-3 bars LTE. Sites adequate with picnic table, some with trees. Really nice playground with volleyball, basketball, tetherball, pool area. Really clean and grassy enclosed puppy yard on one side of the park so not too convenient for me but a very convenient dog walk area on my side of park.
