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. Nice "cook-out" area for campers in addition to the "Cowboy Cookout" area. Offers a breakfast - all you can eat pancakes with coffee for $2.99; sausage, OJ, Milk, eggs for add'l charge. Evening "Cowboy Cookout" of New York Steak with "petrified toast" ($16.99), Chicken Breast filet ($11.09), Cheeseburger ($6.50), Hamburger ($6.00) chiliburger ($7.25), Hot dog ($4.75) - dinners served with ranch beans and potato salad. Sides of potato salad, ranch beans, soda, petrified toast, bowl of chili and hotdog available. Rate of $46.88 for 50amp full hook-up and 37 channels of cable. $14.06 discount for 3 nights with my KOA card. Petrified Forest is 35 miles back east; Winslow AZ is 34 miles west; and Meteor Crater 60 miles west. I would stay here again. We camped at Holbrook / Petrified Forest KOA in a Motorhome.

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). We camped at Holbrook / Petrified Forest KOA in a Motorhome.

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. We camped at Holbrook / Petrified Forest KOA in a Fifth Wheel.

Tips for other Campers:

Holbrook has a county museum that is worth a visit. They only ask for donations. We spent the better part of a whole day at Petrified Forest NP. Walk the 1 mile on the Jasper Forest trail. Takes you on a walk right into a field of petrified trees.

Typically over-priced KOA but Holbrook is a poor town. It seemed reasonably safe in the campground and cooled down at night. The wifi was much better than most RV parks. Nothing special.

This is the worst KOA park I've stayed at in 17 years. The sites are too narrow, electricity went out 3 times, wi-fi is sub par, the shower nozzles either face out into the dressing area or you have to stand up next to the wall to rinse off, the rates are much to high for the accommodations offered. I'll never stay here again. We camped at Holbrook / Petrified Forest KOA in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

Fix the wi-fi, lengthen the sites (about 5' too short for tow vehicle), make them wider, fix the showers, put in fire rings - spend a little money on maintenance of this park. We had to park our car right outside the door which made the site seem even narrower.

All sites were pull through. Stayed in a 31' 5th wheel. We just needed E/W. Close to Petrified Forest. Park was clean. Staff friendly. Would come back if in the area again. We camped at Holbrook / Petrified Forest KOA in a Fifth Wheel.

We were on a home bound leg and just needed a place to stay. This is not a destination park; but it is clean, has a good store, every unit is a pull through and was a good value for our stop-over needs. There is a lot of new planting and in a year or two this will be a much prettier setting. It is on our list of reliable parks. We camped at Holbrook / Petrified Forest KOA in a Motorhome.

Pretty average KOA. Sewer connection was set up really high above ground. Bathrooms were dated but clean, fair water pressure for shower. Laundry was clean, well-kept. Very nice gift shop and groceries/cold drinks. Easy drive to Safeway and fast food and gas. My only complaint was that the place was practically deserted and they crammed all of us that were there (about 6) into one row side by side - maybe everyone requested near the bathrooms like we did?? We camped at Holbrook / Petrified Forest KOA in a Travel Trailer.

Petrified Forest & painted desert are nearby (40 minute drive). Canyon de Chelly is quite a drive (practically 2 hours) - - -but the rock formations were breathtaking second only to Grand Canyon. Hubbell trading Post is a MUST - so interesting and they have wonderful Navajo Rugs/wallhangings for sale.

We stayed here to visit The Painted Desert/Petrified Forest national park. Other than an over night stop, it's the only reason to stay here. That being said, the staff was very nice and accommodating. The CG is a big gravel parking lot. It reminded me of a drive in theater. Actually, I have fond memories of drive ins (another story). We were in the first row sites 1 - 10. They are OK length wise but very narrow. Our awning overlapped into the adjoining site. We were in site 8. The cable did not work and the power was intermittent - not good. The owner came right out to assess the situation - very good. We were so close to sight 9 that we just plugged into the cable and power in that site. The owner blocked out site 9 so we were able to just stay where we were. All the other sites were quite spacious and would have been much better. We would stay here again with the caveat that we would insist on another row. We camped at Holbrook / Petrified Forest KOA in a Travel Trailer.

Go to the Painted Desert/Petrified Forest national park. We did not know what to expect, but it was great.
Also, the best restaurant in town is "Mesa Restaurant Italiana". It was a great surprise and the Italiana chef wife was very pleased. Both the calamari and the mussels were great. Trip advisor agrees.

The park has gravel roads and sites. Our site was not quite level and for a pull through it was very short and narrow. We had to un- hook and park the car in front. We park this way often, but we've had room and didn't stick out on road! I find the price high.

Nice staff, place was very clean and quiet, they offer a cheap pancake breakfast and a small menu for dinner. No problem with setting up our satellite. We camped at Holbrook / Petrified Forest KOA in a Travel Trailer.

Surprisingly, I don't recall ever staying here before. Personally, I do not appreciate reviews like a recent one that says this is like a "drive in" parking lot. It is quite misleading. While there are not a lot of trees, there are dozens of sites that have small trees and/or shrubs between them. There are a variety (FHU, W&E only, pull through, back in, etc.) of RV site types. There are also about a dozen cabins/lodges and several dozen tent sites. We had a level, gravel, FHU, pull through site with 35 channel cable TV. Most sites are satellite friendly. Beside the bathrooms and showers in the main building, there is a second, seasonal bathhouse near the tenting section. This park has the usual KOA recreational facilities - (closed for the season) pool, playground, horseshoes, volleyball, basketball, etc. There is a K9 dog park. The have a cafe that serves a "cowboy cookout" and a pancake breakfast. The WIFI worked fine for us until it got dark. The staff I dealt with were friendly and helpful. The only recycling I saw was for aluminum cans. We camped at Holbrook / Petrified Forest KOA in a Motorhome.

Very convenient to I-40 and Petrified Forest National Park. This campground is nothing special, pretty much a gravel parking lot, but is totally fine for an overnight visit. The KOA staff is friendly. They offer a breakfast and dinner service--we didn't join but it looked good. They have planted new trees which will add to the overall appearance. Our complaint about this KOA is that they pack overnighters into one section--most of the campground is empty, and yet we are squeezed within a few feet of neighbors on both sides. Not sure why they couldn't spread us out a bit? It's tight....no fires allowed, but frankly there's no space to really have one if you have a neighbor. Our picnic table was inches from the neighbor's hookups. Since the campground has easy access to I-40, you can see and hear the interstate, but the noise from the interstate is not bad....the noise from all the overnighters pulling out at 7am is much worse. We camped at Holbrook / Petrified Forest KOA in a Fifth Wheel.

I called ahead and told the staff the size of my RV and left my credit card number. When we arrived and checked in we were given site 8. Do not stay in sites 1-10. They must reserve these for people they don't like. Our site was so narrow my steps were in the next site. They assigned other campers to the sites on either side of us making it a very tight fit. I could reach out and touch the guy next to me. We had to move the picnic table to the front of the site. There was no room for it on either side. I can't believe this is a RV site. I will not return to this campground. For the amount of money I paid to stay here, this is ridiculous. We camped at Holbrook / Petrified Forest KOA in a Fifth Wheel.
