12 RV Parks near Snowflake, Arizona
Feb 2018 - $18.00
The campground is owned by the City of Show Low and is run by a concessionaire. It has both no hookup spots and electric spots. I was there during February in a no hook up site and paid $18 a night which is the lowest rate. Rates are higher for pull thru and electric. Since it is owned by the city, there are no US Govt card discounts or any other discounts and the rates are the same all year. Show Low is snow country in the winter and so what is special is this campground is open all year. It is right across from the Lake and has good cell service. Providers are Verizon and Cellular One which may roam for ATT, depending on the ATT plan. It is very busy in the summer and spots are close but it is dead in the winter. All water facilities are shut off in the winter so that leaves one pit toilet, no tap water and no dump station and there is no reduction in fees. I was in the main campground by the office. The other areas were closed for the season. My travel trailer is 25 ft and it would fit in most if not all of the sites in my area. There are trees making it tricky to get solar for the whole day. The big pluses are the winter season, close to the lake and right in the Town of Show Low. The negatives are the cost for so little facilities in the winter and not really a backwoods experience. - AZ Camper

Nice campground that's similar to a forest service campground. 8 electric sites. Sites were not level but we had no problems leveling out. We were in site # 31 with electric. We were able to get our dome satellite in and we had a decent cell and air card signal. A fire ring with a grate and a pedestal BBQ along with a nice picnic table is provided. Campground is open year round taking reservations during their high season. We arrived mid Oct. and the sites were first come. Discounts are given with the Golden Age Pass that you can purchase at a Rangers Station. We paid $15.00 because we used our pass otherwise an electric site is $26 a night. Dump station available and potable water is available near the restrooms. Play ground is fenced in and next to the campground office/store. Lake is across the road with a boat dock but people were using it to fish off of. Stores are close by with lots of restaurants to choose from. - jannie5

We've been coming here once or twice every year for 6 years. It is still as nice as ever in terms of facilities, service, and atmosphere. They have instituted a reservation policy so beware. If you don't have a reservation you might have to jump sites in the middle of a stay. We were here early in the year, and the CG was not crowded, but some other campers had to move in the middle of their stay. - OldSoldier

Nice quiet and level place to park with electric only. Great value. No amenities or services. Right at the entrance station to petrified forest. - KAP99

I'm rating this campground based on the fact that they only provide electric hook-up at a rate of $10 ($10.75 after tax). Sites #1-4 have a trench that would make it difficult to back a trailer into without possibly hitting the back support legs, but truck campers and vans have been using those sites without problem. The rest of sites #5-10 are flat and level. All sites are back-in but the area for maneuvering is spacious and easy to get the job done, even for newbies. They only offer 30 amp service, but we tripped the breaker and discovered it's only rated for 20 amps. They keep the electric boxes locked so you must arrive while the gift shop (west side) is open from 11am-6pm. There is absolutely no water here other than bottled water you can purchase from the gift shop. They explained it's well water that is really cruddy and they only use it for sanitation needs. The lady that runs the museum gift shop on the east side lives in her trailer behind the building and even she hauls her water in from the town of Holbrook. We filled our water and emptied the sewer tanks before we arrived, so we enjoyed resting here for a week. We wanted to see the supermoon occurring 11/14/16 and the night skies here are wide, open, and bright - perfect spot for astronomical events.
We work online so Verizon service is important - we got 3 strong bars of LTE (50-60% strength) without needing our WE boost. 3 bars of steady voice signal. I also noticed among the wifi networks that someone was using T-mobile as their hotspot, so apparently this one works here too.
Across the street (east side), you can camp for free. There are several teepees built from plywood that anyone with a sleeping bag can use for free - score one for the traveling car campers! - Sara C.

We stayed in the campground with 30 amp service and thought it was more than adequate for our needs. We chose a large site, which was level and easy to back into. Some of the sites did have a trench of sorts that had to be crossed when backing in, but for the most part, people had no trouble getting leveled out. We would definitely stay here again. Our unit is self-contained, so we didn't miss having a toilet or water on site. - Bobbi1948
