5 Parks near Sun Valley, Arizona
Oct 2016 - $20.00
This an OK place to stay for a night or two. We chose it because it was closest to Petrified Forest National Park. Some of the sites are very narrow. Wifi was there but slow at times, not unlike some other RV parks. Verizon signal is low. Under new ownership so improvements may be coming. - Nat02

The new owners of this park are trying very hard to get it up to par but they have a ways to go. It looks like they have some pull through sites; ours was a back in and there was not much room between sites. The restroom/shower was a small building that only had one toilet and one shower. The electric was good as was the water quality. Also had FHU. The wifi was so sketchy as to be non-existent (and no cable). I could hardly get any wifi signals on my jetpack and phone was sketchy as well. There was no rec hall or any other amenities. The dog park they furnished was real small, but I walked up the "primitive road" and was able to let the dogs loose there. The new owners are very nice and helpful. They also have a nice patio area with tables and chairs and sell petrified wood pieces. - Kerch Family

Was ok for an overnight stay. Very nice people and the price was right for full hook ups. Shower was unusable. It was old and looked like there might be snakes or at least spiders and only one. Lots of ants around the dirt campsites. Bathroom in clubhouse was clean. Probably wouldn't stay there again or for more than 1 night. - Sandygranny

Surprisingly, I don't recall ever staying here before. Personally, I do not appreciate reviews like a recent one that says this is like a "drive in" parking lot. It is quite misleading. While there are not a lot of trees, there are dozens of sites that have small trees and/or shrubs between them. There are a variety (FHU, W&E only, pull through, back in, etc.) of RV site types. There are also about a dozen cabins/lodges and several dozen tent sites. We had a level, gravel, FHU, pull through site with 35 channel cable TV. Most sites are satellite friendly. Beside the bathrooms and showers in the main building, there is a second, seasonal bathhouse near the tenting section. This park has the usual KOA recreational facilities - (closed for the season) pool, playground, horseshoes, volleyball, basketball, etc. There is a K9 dog park. The have a cafe that serves a "cowboy cookout" and a pancake breakfast. The WIFI worked fine for us until it got dark. The staff I dealt with were friendly and helpful. The only recycling I saw was for aluminum cans. - Jerry S

The park has gravel roads and sites. Our site was not quite level and for a pull through it was very short and narrow. We had to un- hook and park the car in front. We park this way often, but we've had room and didn't stick out on road! I find the price high.
Nice staff, place was very clean and quiet, they offer a cheap pancake breakfast and a small menu for dinner. No problem with setting up our satellite. - 2hapicampers

We have stayed here about five times. Good location. Close to the freeway but not too noisy. Sites are gravel, but compacted and not a bunch of dirt. They serve food here for breakfast and dinner. - RFCN2

Easy on and off I-40. Handy to local sites. Level and plenty of room. Will make this a regular stop on Arizona crossings. - uawillyk

At $29.50 Good Sam for a FHU 30 amp site this place is a good deal. The sites are the longest I've ever seen. All pull thru and probably 80-90 feet long. They are parking-lot style side by side on gravel, but they are set up so that the set ups alternate so unless your neighbor has the longest rigs and tow ever you really aren't right next to anyone. There are about six different sewer connections per site and the electric, water, and cable are located toward the rear of the sites. All worked well. The restroom is old, ugly, and badly needs updating. But the showers are generous size, have good pressure and lots of hot water and a door on each stall that affords full privacy. The laundry room is much like the restrooms. There are 8 washers (only 5 currently working). They are on the small side and $1.50 each. The dryers (6 with only 5 working) are good size but only run 36 minutes for $1.50, not nearly long enough to dry jeans and towels on one cycle. The room is spacious, though, with several tables and chairs for folding. Check-in was fast and efficient and overall the place was very clean. No grass for dog walking, though. The park is right in Holbrook and only a couple blocks from a restaurant, McDonalds, and travel center with large convenience store. The wi-fi even worked well! And Verizon signal was four bars of LTE. I consider this a great place to use as a base for visiting the Petrified Forest National Park and whatever else you want to see in the area. Would definitely come back. - Pdxjoanne

This is a High Volume overnight stop right off I-40 in Holbrook. Basically a large gravel parking lot with long pull thrus with rigs parked in a staggard arrangement.
Very close but, there is room for slides. Power, sewer, & WiFi was OK. We stayed here 5 nights to visit sights in the area.
I don't think there is much choice anywhere close by so from that standpoint it was OK.
It was amusing how the majority of the campground would empty out during the day and then fill back up in the evening. - Larry Jenkins

Full hookups and internet worked fine. There are no restrooms or showers. I wouldn't have used them if they were available. Check-in at the hotel. Staff was pleasant and check-in was easy. Most campers were semi-permanent folks who worked in the area. Positives: Price is right for a quick overnight in a drive-thru site and internet worked well (possibly because our site was near the hotel), sites were mostly level. Negatives: dog feces isn't picked up, train tracks are behind Park, it's a parking lot. - Dave RVer

Nothing fancy about this park, but fairly functional for an overnight stay. The owner is a friendly fellow who enjoys coming around for conversation. A small park with many long term campers, the sites are large enough for big rigs although you'll be parking on the patio. The water hookup was recessed into the ground and the spigot was covered by dirty water, so we didn't hook up, but the 50 amp power was good. Free cable TV with limited channels. No Wi-Fi, but Verizon cell voice and data were good. There's nothing to see or do in Joseph City, but for a quick overnight it's as good as any. - Meanderman

Great one-nighter -- cheap and cheerful. We needed a place between the south rim of the Grand Canyon and Santa Fe after a day at the Canyon. It is a good stop right off the highway and easy in and out. The people were nice and they had everything for 18 dollars. We got local channels to watch football, stayed hooked up with a pull-through site and then left the next morning out the back and further down the highway. Verizon and TV worked well. Small sites but our three slides went out fine. Level gravel type sites, not a lot of traffic or others there but a few. Can't beat the price if you are in need of a layover. It was actually on old route 66. Nothing else in the town. - FrancisandRenee

Mostly this is to refine some points of these campgrounds. There are 2 Museums at this entrance to Petrified National Park. The one on the west side of the road has 30 amp power and that site cost $10.75/day. The Museum on the east side has the free camping. There are about 6 sites up front with de-energized 30 amp plugs. There are multiple dry camping sites behind these sites. There was water available but I was told by a gentleman in the store that he wouldn't put it in his radiator or give to a dog. This place has flat parking, is the only place within 25 miles, is right at the entrance to the Park, and it's free. It also has pretty good Verizon MiFi 4G service. You should come with a full fresh water tank and empty waste tanks, and full fuel tanks in your rig and your toad. - pumper9x9

This is a basic, gravel parking lot with only 20A. service. It's handy to the Park and will work fine. Some of the sites have picnic tables.
The view is beautiful and almost worth the $10.75 itself. Staff person was very friendly. - Red Wolf Deux

This is one of those electric only, self contained units only sites. The location couldn't get any better if you're here to see Petrified Forest National Park, which was why we were there. There are no frills here. We did get a very usable Verizon Data signal out here surprisingly. The front office preferred cash only, but begrudgingly accepted CC. We would definitely stop here again if visiting the park again. - Living Our Dash
