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.

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.

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 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.

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. We camped at Fool Hollow Lake Recreation Area in a Motorhome.

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.

Beautiful park. Sites are well spaced so plenty of room. Lake is good for fishing. Walking trail around most of lake is great exercise. Our site was high up overlooking lake. Camp hosts keep the park clean and well-patrolled. Entrance gate to park closed after 10pm. Because it is a joint venture between the state and the Federal government all facilities are clean and modern. Stayed four nights. Would absolutely stay here again.

This campground is FANTASTIC! It is spotless - all of it. The restrooms have private rooms with shower, toilet, sink, etc. The roads in and around are all paved, as well as the campsites. There are fire rings, some barbeques, full hook ups on Mallard loop and Redhead loop. Close to town. The Ranger and his wife were wonderful folks. I have never been to a nicer campground. The area it's in is just so peaceful. Please check it out. We camped at Fool Hollow Lake Recreation Area in a Travel Trailer.

Nice state park, but kind of expensive for what it offers. Lake level was very low. They only had 1 loop open due to the snow, which is also why we did not try the restrooms or showers. Getting to the park was very deceptive as you have to drive through a housing development to get there. Would stay again but hopefully, when it is warmer.

This is a wonderful park. The utilities are underground and the streets and pads are all concrete. Everything is really clean. The staff is very friendly. We asked if we could let our dog go swimming in the lake and the answer was 'yes'. The only thing that is negative is our GPS took us down a residential street and we had difficulty turning around. Just beware, don't go down 22nd Ave., set your GPS to 1500 Fools Hollow Road. We camped at Fool Hollow Lake Recreation Area in a Travel Trailer.

This was our second time staying at this beautiful park, which is probably the best maintained state park we've ever stayed at (and we've been to a LOT). Lovely sites, nice trails to walk, and a very peaceful setting. A bonus for travelers with dogs is a great city park not too far away: The Deuce of Dogs Bark Park. My only beef is the $5 reservation fee, which we got tricked into incurring during the off season because we mistakenly thought that the park was nearly full when, in reality, lots of loops were closed already. We learned our lesson. We camped at Fool Hollow Lake Recreation Area in a Motorhome.
