Our trip to Fool Hollow was our shakedown trip after recently buying a used motorhome--wanted to learn all the ins/outs of the rig and possible problems before we headed too far from home. Fool Hollow was certainly a pleasant surprise! Forget the shakedown, we'll be coming back here again and again! Loved that within a few hours drive we can get out of the Phoenix heat to such a lovely recreation area. This park was exceptionally clean and well maintained. Sites are spacious and far enough apart that you have a sense of privacy. The trails are great and have benches along the way to just sit, relax and enjoy the scenery. The small lake was well-used by those fishing, boating, etc. Camp hosts are available to provide firewood and such. We camped at Fool Hollow Lake Recreation Area in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

Within a few miles of town with regular shopping facilities and restaurants should you want to leave the park.

We loved this place! We stayed in Cinnamon Teal Site 18 (Cinnamon Teal 19 is probably the best in the park if you can get it) We were greeted by a very friendly Ranger, our site was clean and level and had a great view of the lake. There was a nice woods line between our site and the one on one side. The only thing we didn't care for was the "sharing" of the sites. A lot of sites, ours included, had "piggybacked" which places their vehicle directly next to your trailer and then you kind of share the rest of the site space. It was still very nice though. The campground had nice clean private showers, a nice walking path and plenty of space to walk the dogs. I would definitely recommend it to others and would stay there again! We camped at Fool Hollow Lake Recreation Area in a Travel Trailer.

Tips for other Campers:

They also have a bait store that rents kayaks and canoes.

Excellent state park, very quiet, spacious sites over looking the lake. Sites were gravel but very level. We were excited to see a bald eagle perched in a dead tree near our site. We camped at Fool Hollow Lake Recreation Area in a Travel Trailer.

Affordable A+ park! The park is clean and the staff members are friendly. The showers & restrooms are excellent. The lake view is peaceful, the wild animals are abundant. We camped at Fool Hollow Lake Recreation Area in a Truck Camper.

Tips for other Campers:

Plenty of abundant stores & good restaurants in Show Low. The Show Low City Park is beautiful, too. We enjoy our visits here.

We have camped at Fool Hollow lake numerous times and it is by far the best camp ground we have found. The sites are big and cleaned daily. They have tables and fire pit at every site. They have full hook up and some without sewer. It is quiet, Park Ranger enforced, so even though there are lots of kids, it's quiet. There is a playground for the children that is very clean and neat. The bath and showers are spotless with hot showers. You can get your wood from the camp hosts if needed, but within minutes, you are in town with all the stores needed. We camped at Fool Hollow Lake Recreation Area in a Travel Trailer.

I hesitate to rate this campsite because I'd like to keep it a secret! One of the nicest sites we have stayed at all summer. Sites are fairly private. Some are double sites if you want to camp with friends. Lots of pine trees and shade. We had ample room for our 28 foot rig and our car. Very quiet, great night's sleep. Close proximity to shopping. Small Lake at the campground. You can rent kayaks. All sites are paved and fairly level. Enough room for slideouts. We loved it! We camped at Fool Hollow Lake Recreation Area in a Motorhome.

Beautiful wooded campgrounds with very nice lake, good fishing I hear, as well as kayak and canoe rentals. Each loop has restrooms and some have showers and playgrounds. I've been informed by RV Park Reviews staff that this campground DOES have full hookups, but we paid for a full hookup site and had no sewer, so I am unable to confirm if there actually are full hookups or not. No Wi-Fi, no cable, but picked up PBS and FOX via antenna. The only wildlife experiences we had were stepping on a prairie rattlesnake and coming face-to-face with a skunk while walking the dogs at night. Luckily, both were uneventful. The side-by-side RV concept was a bit too close for comfort, but our neighbors were only there for the weekend. Hubby’s biggest concern was that Arizona seems to employ Department of Corrections orange-suiters to landscape and clean facilities with no signs of supervision. Show Low is about 2 miles away, but about 10 miles to the newer side of town. Lowe’s has screaming fast Wi-Fi for free, no password. Who’d have thought it! We camped at Fool Hollow Lake Recreation Area in a Fifth Wheel.

We recently stayed here for 5 nights in a 36' 5th wheel. Here's the pros: Very pretty area, easy to find, many sites had views of the water, restrooms were very clean and centrally located. There were kayaks and rentals available to rent, although we didn't use them. Here's the cons: It can be hard to navigate and park for larger rigs, as many of the sites had large boulders/rocks next to the roads and driveways, which made backing into the sites more challenging. If you have a larger rig, be careful on the sites you pick out and they aren't very easy to get into. Tip: Also be careful if you have AT&T for your cell phone provider, as it looks like you have cell phone service there but you are "off network" so you may incur additional charges or go over your "off network" allotted usage. We camped at Fool Hollow Lake Recreation Area in a Fifth Wheel.

We made reservations about 9 months in advance for site Mallard 09. This is the best spot in the park for full 50 amp service. The view was fantastic with no campsites in front of our door or out the back to block this great view of the lake and surrounding forest. The site was level, although I did have to drop the front of my fifth wheel to get it level once I unhooked. Water pressure was great. We only could get one TV channel but that is no big deal. The fishing for trout was great as they had just stocked the lake. We caught our limit each day we fished. We had a great fish fry. We camped at Fool Hollow Lake Recreation Area in a Fifth Wheel.

We stayed during the slow season, so only one loop was open. There was only one or two others camping there, but they placed us right next to another rig. Had to drive back 5 miles to the office to get another site assigned. Otherwise, nice paved sites, shaded. It was icy here in January. The lake was OK, not that impressive. Close enough to town. We camped at Fool Hollow Lake Recreation Area in a Motorhome.

This State Park is a typical State Park, but really it is a Gem! Nice layout, paved and concrete roads and sites. Ranger was friendly and helpful. Sites are long, pretty level left-right but sloping towards the back, not a problem. Enough space for slide out and awning. Table, grill & fireplace at site. Hookups are standard and working. Verizon had a good signal, Virgin mobile didn't. Restrooms are shower, toilet & basin in 1 room, tiled and clean. Some sites are more in the trees and might be more difficult for satellite signal. We were staying at 2 different sites and had a sat signal at both. Beautiful trail along the lake with benches and docks for boats. We really liked it, can recommend it and would return if again in the area. We camped at Fool Hollow Lake Recreation Area in a Fifth Wheel.

Very scenic park. Our site in the Cinnamon Teal Loop overlooked the lakes and steep bluffs. We originally were going to stay in Redhead loop site #5, but site was not level enough for our CLass A. There is no park Wi-Fi, but Verizon 4G LTE was very strong. Using the shower in the combo bathroom/shower stalls tended to get the entire floor wet, but facilities were clean. We left a day early because fall nights got very cold (20s) as the park is at 6300 feet. The nearby Safeway store in Show Low is a great grocery store with a surprising wine selection.

Superb park. Nice full hookup sites, great amenities (even ice and a book swap at the campground loops!), scenic setting. Kayak and canoe rentals available, or you can take your own boat on the lake as long as the motor is 10 hp or less. Nice walking trails too. As others have said, don't follow your GPS to get here! Follow the signs on the road only. This is a popular park so reservations are a good idea in season, especially weekends. We camped at Fool Hollow Lake Recreation Area in a Travel Trailer.

Fool Hollow sets the bar high for all the rest. If you don't enjoy this "gem", you don't enjoy "camping". Sites are level, concrete, excellent hookups and while the park is huge, you feel secluded and lost in the forest of pines surrounding you. Very clean facilities and helpful staff. I almost hate to tell the world about this place because we plan to come back again and again and again. The only negative is they only let you stay for 15 days. But that means we will always be able to get a spot when we return. We camped at Fool Hollow Lake Recreation Area in a Fifth Wheel.
