This campground was a beautiful campground and good location. The setting was nice, the sites were very nice, and the price was good. This campground mangers cared about their campground, no trash anywhere. Everyone including management was very nice and helpful. I would return to this place again and recommend to anyone. - private0012

In my view this rv park has more pine trees and a prettier setting than any commercial park from Flagstaff to Williams. The sites are a crushed gravel-type material and most are fairly level. It would have been nicer if there was a little more room between sites but none of the other parks are generous in this respect. New ownership needs to do a few things like add cable and do a little site grooming. Limited TV service can be gotten from an antenna but it's not real clear. The biggest negative is the park's proximity to the railroad tracks. The BNSF is very active along this stretch of I-40 and the engineers blow the train horn 4 times each time it passes by the area both east and westbound. We had a nice campfire amidst the aromatic pines in the evening. I would stay here again. - exportman

Very nice piney, woodsy campground. All pull-throughs. Fairly level sites with fair amount of space between sites. Far enough from Hwy 40 to be quiet. Lots of far off trains but not too loud. - Chuckster59

Nice KOA. Several fenced play areas for dogs. Indoor pool (could stay open longer than 8pm). Mini Golf (fee required). Go Karts (fee required). Short Hiking trails at the back of the property. My only complaint was the daily fee for water since its trucked in. This wasn't mentioned when making reservations online. The Wifi worked very well. - jennifernelson49

We had another good experience at KOA Circle Pines. Our kids love the activities. The site was level as requested and all services worked fine. I love the ease of all sites at this campground and the circle makes is so easy to come and go. The only thing we wish... is that the activities were not so costly. The mini golf course is a nice benefit, but $3.50 to play it each time? I think it should be free, or minimal charge, they would get alot more play. The banana bikes at $5/half hour and mining at $7 per child, along with new Go Karts at $8 per kid. How about have a pass for the kids for the weekend? The proximity of the office to activities is inconvenient and makes for a long stay, when parents need to go to office and pay for each activity. There is a trailer down there... staff it and use it! Be nice to have scheduled kids activities as well. - Cantcampenuf

This is a Kaibab Forest Campground with no hookups. It is 19 miles southeast of Williams and the last 10 miles is on a gravel road. The campground fills up on the weekends in the summer, reservations for some sites are available. The lake is stocked for fishing and good for kayaking or canoeing, small electric motors are allowed. Good ATV roads are near by. The camp hosts were very friendly and helpful. National Parks Passes will decrease the nightly rate by 50%. - JEMc

Still one of our favorite NF CGs. We don't stay at the Group Area per se, but the individual campsites are in the same area, just a different loop.
This year, we found that we get slightly better cell coverage at the northwest end of the CG, near the host. - LM&TinView

This "Dry Camping" - so no utilities. Very nice picnic tables and fire rings. I rated the CG a ten on the merits of the questions, but be warned - there is plenty of noise from people running generators, which is frustrating, because I wouldn't take the gift of one.
I have a 19' Airstream - other campers were mostly Class A's and larger 5th wheels. the larger the "rigs" the more generator noise you'll encounter. - Anthony Sherman

This is an outstanding campground for those who don't need/want utilities. There's water at each (very clean) vault toilet, but filling RVs is discouraged. The driveways and pads are all asphalt (note: can't select asphalt in Site Surface) so there's hardly any dust. There are Ponderosa pines all around that cut down wind but allow enough sunlight so solar panels work fine.
The campground is just 1.6 miles north of I-40 so it's convenient for an overnight stay vs the hassle of checking into a commercial campground . The hosts are helpful and personable except one blowhard who's annoying but harmless.
There's a dump station at Love's Truck Stop 4 miles west on I-40. They also have good fuel prices, propane, a tire shop if you need it and, of course, fast food. - LM&TinView

This is our second stay at Canyon Motel and RV Park. We like it's close proximity to Williams and the Grand Canyon. The park is quiet but the spaces, except for one or two of them, have little to no shade. There is a train that runs from Williams, but I actually enjoyed the sound of the train running and either it does not run all night or we became accustomed to it because it did not disturb our sleep. There is good water pressure in the showers and the water was hot, however the showers are now shared by the men and the women, which I must say I wasn't wild about. We would definitely stay here again. - Thirtygoodyears

I liked this old motel/RV park. It seems to have a lot of history. The staff was friendly and gave us a good site. Our Internet and satellite TV worked fine. We only stayed one night on our way to California but it was a good choice and we would not hesitate to stay there again. We had been to the Grand Canyon the previous year and this year were just stopping on our way through to California. We would stay here in our 40-footer again. - rwarner22

The park is average. It allows tent camping which impacts the use of its only 3 bathrooms. It's very high on rules, even threatening to "boot" your car should you park at the office. There is an indoor pool which was closed waiting for parts. Sites are gravel and some tables are huge retired cable spools. 25 cable channels with poor to mediocre reception. Wi-Fi was slow. - Southwest RV'r

Very nice campground. Lots were spacious and offered some shade. Site surface was gravel and featured a fire ring and picnic table.
It was a little far from the Grand Canyon (about 46 miles one way) but very near to Bearizona, which was a fun place to visit. Our site was very spacious. Very family friendly. - Dkkirkland

This is a very good park for visiting The Grand Canyon if you can't get in to one in or near the park. It's 45 miles to the Grand Canyon entrance. The park is clean and groomed. Sites are iron ore type rock and are fairly level. Wifi signal is fair depending on where you are and how many people are using it. Park is busy. Lots of overnighters. We would stay here again if we couldn't find something closer. - bb6306

No WiFi. Cable tv very limited. Staff very polite and helpful. KOA store has lots of items. Site way to expensive, all red clay dirt and very close. Nice fenced in dog run. Very dog friendly. 50 miles from Grand Canyon. - Rascal123

Agree with the previous person who asked why this place gets so rated so high. We stayed for two nights and the place is ok but not 4 or 5 star by any stretch of the imagination. It is all gravel, the spaces are very close together and roads are very narrow.
They also do not monitor how many people they have in each space to wit, the space next to us had 6 adults for a single trailer. Because they could not fit in the single trailer, they set up tents around the trailer. Since they had nowhere to go at night, they sat around talking loudly and laughing until midnight. Since the spaces were so close, this put them right outside our bedroom window. Yes, when I spoke to the owner/desk person/manager in the morning about the noise at midnight, she said she would speak to them but the damage was done by then. She also told me that she lived on site 24/7 but I never saw anyone driving around at curfew checking for noisy rowdy groups like other parks.
Speaking of the owner/manager/desk lady, do not even think about approaching her in the morning to ask about anything. When I tried to explain to her that we were simply trying to pay for the next night and trying to find out the office hours, she pointed to the wall inside the office and said it says "8 to 5." When I pointed out to her that the hours are not posted outside, she became more irritated and finally said, "Fine, I am trying to start my day here but I will stop everything just for you."
I could go on but space is limited. Stay Elsewhere! She does not deserve any more business from us or our travel group. Go to the nicer and friendlier RV park next to the GC rail depot downtown! If you must go, bring bug spray and don't count on room for the dogs to run unless you like dealing with fox tails. - centurion493

It was just a one night stay but it worked out fine for us. Plenty of area around the park for walking the dog & letting him run! Enjoyed the complimentary breakfast as well. We would stay here again! - Tourbooklou

This is a good park that could be a great park with a little T.L.C. Good layout, easy access to town, I-40, and the Grand Canyon. Friendly, helpful, staff. Too many weeds-- fox-tails and stickers, which can be a problem if you have dogs. - User3169

Don't be fooled by the pretty photos of red lava streets and green trees; behind the photos this park is a dump. It is about 75% filled with low income, permanent residents, living in old, dilapidated trailers and motorhomes. There no apparent effort by the management to police these residents, maintain the sites, or clean the grounds.
A sign in the office states "No Refunds." So be forewarned, If you end up parked next to white trash in an old trailer with three dogs and four kids, your tough luck. Suggest you drive through, before you pay. - Wecruise

This park is located directly across the road from Love's Travel Stop. There are 18-wheelers coming and going until late at night. The noise, combined with the bright lights, gets old. I wouldn't want to be here more than one day. There was a horse trailer parked next to us that seemed to attract flies.
Sewer connection plus 20 and 30 amp electricity. Power was stable and the pedestal was clean. - LM&TinView

Friendly, courteous staff. Good location close to town. Easy transportation into Williams with golf cart pick up and return from campsite (cost was a tip). Offered an in depth tour of Grand Canyon available from campsite to Grand Canyon National Park and return by Dave's Grand Canyon Tours. Pricey but we felt worth the money. We had a great pull-through location overlooking a large meadow. - Bobster43

We camped here with friends so we booked a buddy site where we could pull in next to each other and have the doors of the rv, s face each other which was cool. No grass, but rock seperating the sites which did not bother me at all. Power, water etc. all worked well. The cable TV did not but, I was there for the Grand Canyon, so not even worth complaining about. My site was level, grounds are very clean, and we saw maintenance people emptying trash cans every few hours. We did not use bathrooms/showers, because, I bought an RV to enjoy my own bathroom. While you are 45 minutes from the Grand Canyon, Williams is a cool little town to visit in the evening. We would stay here again when in the area. - desertcamper05

We reserved our RV site at the same time as we booked the train and reserved our seats to Grand Canyon. It's all part of various packages. We were also able to book our dogs into the boarding kennel which is at the rail station. We were able to drop our dogs off and walk to the station.
I can't imagine a better way of visiting GC for a day.
The park is clean,open and has great wifi.
A very well run operation. - TGA2016

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
