We stayed at Fool Hollow Lake for a week. While we didn'find much to love about the Show Low/Pinetop/Lakeside area, we LOVE Fool Hollow. We used the time to kick back and relax. The campsite was spacious, shaded, and well separated from the sites on either side. There is a nice lakeside trail along the lake. Being right in town is a plus. The road leading to the park is a little rough, but nothing to worry about. Just annoying. We would definitely stay at Fool Hollow again. We camped at Fool Hollow Lake Recreation Area in a Travel Trailer.

We really enjoyed our stay here. We were in Mallard Loop so we had full hookups. Our spot was #1, so there was no one on either side of us, and we still had a glimpse of the lake. Restrooms were extremely clean. Easy access to fishing and the walking trail, and also it was a short drive to stores and restaurants in Show Low. We camped at Fool Hollow Lake Recreation Area in a Travel Trailer.

Loved everything about this park. Beautiful natural setting, trees, birds, lake, trails. Some sites have W/S/E, some 50A. Sites are roomy, paved pad and patio area with picnic table and fire ring. Sadly, we were only staying overnight, but could not have stayed longer because the park was booked up. We felt lucky to get a site without a reservation, even mid-week in October. I believe this is the first park I've rated a 10, but it really is my kind of park! What a pleasure after several days on the road and only so-so parks the whole trip. We camped at Fool Hollow Lake Recreation Area in a Fifth Wheel.

Fool Hallow is great one of my favs. The sites are spread out so you can breath, and the dogs can relax. Site surface is asphalt and features a fire ring and picnic table. Lots of hiking. I love Arizona camping. We camped at Fool Hollow Lake Recreation Area in a Travel Trailer.

This is the best state park we have stayed at. There are firepits, ice large space between the sites, very quiet and close to town if you want some restaurants or forget something. We camped at Fool Hollow Lake Recreation Area in a Travel Trailer.

We have been coming to Fool Hollow now for 11 years. The facilities are still excellent, but the electrical system is showing its age and suffering from the increased demands of new RVs. Voltages go as low as 100vac during high demand periods and it is necessary to transfer all multiple power systems to propane that can be. (I.E. - hot water and fridge.) Prices have risen again to $35 for a full hookup - 30Amp site and it is nearly essential to make reservations a FULL year in advance. Even before we ended this visit, our preferred site was already booked for our preferred dates for 2017. The campground now has a new manager that has caused significant confusion concerning policies and procedures. Campers as well as staff cringe at the thought of ANOTHER change without consultation or contemplation. Between these problems and the new prices local RV Resorts are becoming a more attractive. This is a shame as this is a very fine facility. We have made reservations for May-June 2017 but are keeping the option open for alternative opertunities. We camped at Fool Hollow Lake Recreation Area in a Fifth Wheel.

Reserve very early if possible. Nearly every summer weekend this facility is completely full of "valley" (Phoenix) people escaping the 110+ temps of the city.

very nice park with paved streets and pads. pads pretty level. beware that some sites have trees close to pad that will prohibit/limit your slides. tree cover blocked satellite and could not pick up any over the air channels. only 30 amp service, with sewer in Mallard loop. would visit again. We camped at Fool Hollow Lake Recreation Area in a Motorhome.

It is truly a beautiful park with spacious sites, some have natural screening, but many are double sites which is great if 2 parties are traveling together, but not good if you are not traveling with the other party as there is absolutely no separation. Only Cinnamon and Mallard loops were open. Mallard may have water and 50 amp (and sewer?), but Cinnamon has 30 amp and water. However, the voltage was extremely low - blew the circuit almost every time the microwave was used, even when everything else was off. We had to be extremely careful and generally turned the generator when cooking because of this. Office has limited hours, but no answer when we called during the posted hours and we could not find a camp host (think they were off duty). $33 was too pricey for such poor electric service and no sewer (and the dump was closed). No problem getting 35' motor home in and there were other larger ones. Because of the beauty, I might stay here again, but would try to get Mallard. We camped at Fool Hollow Lake Recreation Area in a Motorhome.

This was one of the best places we have stayed at. The sites are spaced apart nicely. There are concrete slabs for RVs yet the campground has a nice National Park "in the outdoors" feel. The campground is very well-maintained, pet friendly, and there are lots of areas to walk. The lake is beautiful. We loved our stay and will definitely go back.

Some of the friendliest campground hosts and support people we have ever experienced are here. The campgrounds are beautiful and Fools Hollow Lake is stunning. Hiking trails, boat rentals in season, very clean bathrooms. This time we stayed in Ruddy Duck loop which has electric and water only. But, park dump station is 3 minutes away on drive out. Solid Verizon 4G service to use as mobile hot spot. Very dog friendly. We camped at Fool Hollow Lake Recreation Area in a Motorhome.

Beautiful park with nice pads and huge spaces. We stayed 2 nights in the fall and enjoyed every minute. Close to groceries and restaurants. Gets really busy on the weekend but with the well spaced and landscaped setup, it does not feel crowded. Lots of hiking, biking and lake opportunities. We will stay here again.

Camping in state run facilities make me happy.....the sites are typically spaced enough to have some privacy, the facilities are usually clean and work. There is a balance between amenities and nature. We were at Fool Hollow for 3 nights and loved every minute......even with the rain. Water and electric is really all we need. Will come back here again. We camped at Fool Hollow Lake Recreation Area in a Travel Trailer.

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.

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!
