Positives: There is foliage around each spot, so if you want shade, you've got it. Also, when we pulled in, a worker (without our asking) made another camper move his truck, which was parked in the drive, so we could pass. Finally, the spot was long enough so that we didn't have to unhitch, as we requested.

Negatives: The spots are not level. You will need a few blocks, no matter which site you are in. They are tight, so you will be able to see in your neighbor's window if your blinds are open. The "dog areas" are little chain-link fenced spots about the size of our dining table - one next to the dumpster, the other next to the playground. Bring your own "doggie" bags. There was a dead javelina in one of the walking areas that had obviously been there a while. We were there on a Friday night, and there were at least three groups at three different sites partying it up until 12:30 am. Music blaring, bottles clinking, etc. The sewer hook-up was higher than the RV which really isn't the best placement, gravitational-speaking.

To sum it up: This time of year, none of the forest campgrounds were available; however, next time we stay in Payson, if this is all that's left, we'll be staying in the Walmart parking lot. We camped at Payson Campground & RV Resort in a Travel Trailer.

The staff are always helpful, courteous, and customer friendly. They drive through the park at least every hour for security and in case you need anything. The pool was being remodeled. The streets are dirt but are fine for driving. Right next door is the college trail for hiking. The grounds are kept up daily. We pulled into our spot in a 43-footer with no issues. We also had room next to the RV for two full size trucks. Each spot has trees and shade. The WiFi is spotty which is normal for Payson. Playground is fun for the kids. Very quiet from our standards. I am not positive about the nightly rates. We are full timers so we paid by the month. We camped at Payson Campground & RV Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

Have a 40' MH plus tow. This campground was a former KOA, sites are very close and hard to navigate on the narrow campground roads. Very clean and neat and the staff is very nice. Driveway up is steep . We camped at Payson Campground & RV Resort in a Motorhome.

The park is on a sandy hill, large ruts throughout, difficult to maneuver around. They said I would need reservations and charged my card immediately then said that there cancellation policy was no refunds but I would be able to use the days for up to a year. The sites are all sand most very narrow and not long enough. No table but the WiFi worked ok. I would never stay here again, find another park!!

Stayed a month and it was fun; staff was very friendly......think they added some recently which might offset some of the bad reviews. Very pretty, rustic location with lots of trees and very convenient "in town" location; the sites are "paved" with chipped granite so does look like dirt but is very hard (sometimes "dusty") but very quaint. Great place for us for the month we were there. We camped at Payson Campground & RV Resort in a Motorhome.

Went to Tonto Natural Bridge....very nice! Got my knife sharpened by a guy named Chuck and it is awesome! Visited Scissor Shippers for a tour of the facility. Tinys restaurant has a breakfast just down the street for $2 (2 eggs, 2 bacon & 2 cakes= "2+2" special)

Also Macky's at SawMill crossing is wonderful; Dimi Espresso on beeline is the best cup o joe, too

We stayed in this park mostly because of the lack of other parks in the area. I'm not sure how GS gave this park such a high rating unless they consider rutted dirt roads a value because all that they provided was dust and dirt in your RV by vehicles passing by, and beware if you're down wind when the vehicles pass by. I would not stay here again. Dog areas where small and hardly used. The employees where friendly and willing to assist when needed. The owners however could do more to improve the condition of the roads. We camped at Payson Campground & RV Resort in a Motorhome.

Stayed 2 months. Lots of Dog poop all around the park. Lots were not cleaned up after people left and the next people had to put up with the garbage. When checking in was taken to the lot and told by the lady you are on your own I don't help. Around in the back side it could be hard to back in on your own with out help. The lot we had washed away after every rain storm and trying to get it fixed was useless. Will not go back until things get fixed. We camped at Payson Campground & RV Resort in a Travel Trailer.

This park is one of those parks that advertises gravel sites and roads, but forgets that the gravel was put in 15 years ago. The grounds are 80% dirt and little pea gravel. This park is a dust bowl! The park offers no propane or supplies of any kind. The WiFi is poor and there is one trash bin for 80 sites. When I contacted the office in regards to receiving a package, I was told to contact the Post Office for a P.O. Box. Receiving customer's mail was too much trouble for them. There are three parks down the road. We camped at Payson Campground & RV Resort in a Motorhome.

Narrow sites leave no room for awnings, picnic table or fire ring unless you have a small rig under 32'. Water pressure very low. 50amp sites for long term stays, most sites 30amp only. Park seems friendly until they have your money, then they think they can say whatever they like to you and if you don't like it you can leave, and no refunds. WiFi ok for web surfing and email, but will not support streaming movies or Skype. We will not stay here again. We camped at Payson Campground & RV Resort in a Motorhome.

Office staff were extremely friendly and accommodating. We arrived on a Sat. to stay a week, and they only had one site left. They allowed us to stay one night there and move to a better site the next day. This is a great park for kids. The park is dog friendly, but they also do not tolerate barking. A rig parked beside us with small barking dogs that barked for hours, and they were given a warning when we complained. The noisy dogs left the next day. Sites are close but separated by bushes to give some privacy. Most sites are not level, and the park is hilly. We camped at Payson Campground & RV Resort in a Motorhome.

We stay here on a monthly basis, hence our rate is lower than the normal daily. We have stayed here for the past three years during the winter season and are very satisfied with the park, the management and the owners. We like this park because it is not an asphalt parking lot but is truly a campground in the trees but very close to town. I agree it is not for those who demand fancy amenities but it is for those who love the outdoors and a sense of adventure. We camped at Payson Campground & RV Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

Having looked at some of the previous remarks, I'll add that; yes, the lady at the check in was nice, but looks aren't everything. She was efficient, but didn't even ask the length of my rig before assigning a site. Maybe she saw it as I drove past. (?) I'm not certain I'd want to drive a fifth wheel into this place as there were many hills to negotiate with relatively sharp corners. The site we had was very unlevel. It took 3 inches of leveling and exact placement to get where we could connect to utilities and be level at the same time. The wind was not blowing, but I could see where if it were, sand in the air would be an issue. I did not see roaming pit bulls (or other dogs roaming about unleashed for that matter.) All RVs that were about seemed to be relatively clear of junk or other refuse, (in reply to other posting individuals). There did seem to be a severe problem with erosion, as the park is on a hill and the chief leveling material is sand rather than gravel. A concern I had was that the waste water dumping tube for my site was a good three feet below my site. As a result, I did not use it. The parks has many trees of good size and some of the sites are are placed with several trees between neighbors. I'm not sure I would go back to this park, as the overnight price seemed a bit steep for the winter amenities (pool was covered). Frankly, Payson RV parks could use some competition.

The lady in the office was one of the nicest people I have ever met in a campground. Park has nice shade and sites are nice. Seems as there are a lot of people who live here. It turned nasty on the weekend. Loud party nearby from 6:30 AM until after 10 PM. I have no problem with people being loud and having fun, but at least give the rest of us a break during quiet time. My biggest problem with this park though is the dogs that they let in. The weekend brought 2 huge pit bulls next to us. I went out in the morning and a dog that looked like a hyena-pit bull mix was running loose. We have a 13 pound older poodle that we had to worry about getting attacked.

Charged high season less Good Sam. Pool is not open yet. NARROW pull through sites. Had to trim the shrubs on both sides to put out my slides. Can't get to the basement doors with the slides out. This site was level enough to keep the rear tires on the ground. BUT Sewer connection is above our outlet. Only 30 amp connections at our pull through site. No Cable. One station available on antenna. WI-FI is very slow. Tried myspeedonline.com and would not even complete test. Verizon 3g and phone OK. Pass up this town and go on. We were forced here as there was an accident on 260 to Holbrook for 6+ hours which closed the road. We camped at Payson Campground & RV Resort in a Motorhome.

Well lets start off by telling you there ia a "NO REFUND" policy here. That should be the first clue that this is truly in all the years we have traveled the WORST DUMP I HAVE EVER STAYED AT. OK, its' privately owned, what that translates to is no money or effort in up keep. Most places are for "long termers" this translates to people who store their junky old RVs there. Worse yet the electricity is so bad that you can only run the AC (barely too) or the refridgerator or the microwave, forget using more that one at a time the power is intermittent and poor. No tables or fire pits or BBQ,s because the spaces are so small that you have to park there. This place is a joke, I recommend Walmart parking lot first. The dust bowl is a joke too, don't try to eat ouside unless you like dirt on your food! AVOID THIS PLACE AT ALL COSTS. We camped at Payson Campground & RV Resort in a Travel Trailer.
