The 19.50 rate reflects 50 amp site via Passport America (cash only). The 30 amp sites were 16.50. As others described, it's a rundown place in the middle of nowhere, just a place to stop for the night, or if you're touring Petrified Forest NP. We stayed in a 50 amp site near the road rather than the designated narrower sites in the back, so there was plenty of room for our 4 slides. Electric and water pressure were fine and there was a sewer connection. Surprisingly the wifi worked great from our site, which is good because our Verizon 4G was very intermittent. No cable TV; Dish satellite worked fine; didn't try to use the antenna for locals. Constant noise from trucks on I-40, but not something that kept us up. The family who checked us in was very nice. All in all a very good overnight experience for a decent price, exactly what we needed. We camped at Root 66 RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

All gravel, basic park with some level sites. Mostly pull-throughs. Serviceable utilities that seem well maintained. Next to freeway, so light sleepers may have issue. At $19.50 Passport America rate ($3 for 3rd person), it is a marginal value for no amenities, but it is an acceptable one night spot if you have reached your driving limit. Would stay again.

We stayed the two times. The park is basically dirt and gravel. There is a large building there that may have been a store in the past . The motel is in shambles and either needs to be torn down or rebuilt. The couple running it are very nice. The park is up for sale. The park needs a complete renovation. Might be a pretty good investment if someone has the funds. We camped at Root 66 RV Park in a Motorhome.

Price cited is wit a Passport America discount. Campground isn't the prettiest, but great for an overnight. Yes, the motel is empty and most of the doors and windows are removed, but it isn't scary. Overnight OK, a resort it's not. We camped at Root 66 RV Park in a Motorhome.

What others said. Quick access to I-40. OK for overnight. Rundown and for sale. Lots of construction workers. Had 50 amp but had to stretch cable across to adjacent site. Didn't use water or sewer. Passport America rate $19.50 for one night. Tight site for 45', didn't open slides. Wi-Fi didn't work, Verizon 3G didn't connect to Internet. Surprisingly had strong AT&T signal. Site was level and quiet since we were on back side. We camped at Root 66 RV Park in a Motorhome.

Very old RV park. All gravel and dirt roads and pads. No trees, no activity center or rec room or other amenities. 30 & 50 amp and FHUs. Most sites are level, long and wide pull thru. Clean but dated and old. Right off I-40 and traffic noise. 3 bar Verizon cell signal and only 3G mobile hot spot, but good satellite signal. Office staff friendly and helpful. No monthlies. About 8 miles east of the town Holbrook and 20 miles west of Petrified Forest Nat’l Park. We will stay there again for a nite while in the area. $16 for PA with FHU.

Not the Bates as others indicate, but just a quick jump off and back on I-40. Close to Petrified Forest and Painted Desert. Wife kind of liked it, but not the fanciest park in town. Currently up for sale. Only one bathroom, no shower, does not flush too well. Did have sewer service. We would stop back if we were passing through. Only 3 campers there when we were there. The motel part is abandoned. We camped at Root 66 RV Park in a Travel Trailer.

We stayed 2 nights at this campground, since we wanted to visit the Petrified Forest and the Painted Desert. We were very saddened by the neglected state of the entire site The old, dilapidated, empty motel with doors left open is very creepy. The owners are very friendly, but the place leaves a lot to be desired; major cleanup is needed. The only thing we liked about it was it was just on Route 66 which made it somewhat nostalgic. We stayed with Passport America. The price they charged is definitely much too expensive for the place. We camped at Root 66 RV Park in a Motorhome.

I have absolutely no idea how this park (and I use the term loosely) ever made the PA book. What a spooky place. I arrived after dark, and even with a lantern and two dogs in tow, I did not feel safe while roaming around looking for the mythical bathroom and shower that were apparently located somewhere within a derelict and partially demolished motel. Finally, I decided "No way,Jose! I've seen this movie, and I know how it ends!" Best to scurry on back, lock the trailer door, and just use my porta potty and a baby wipe instead of waiting to stumble upon the axe murderer that surely was hiding behind the next darkened and abandoned motel room door. Ye gods, what a place. There were plenty of very expensive rigs at this park, and it looked like some of them were there for an extended stay. But for the life of me, I can't understand why unless there just isn't another choice nearby. The park is right next to the highway and quite noisy at night. The manager was very friendly and helpful, but boy oh boy, he sure doesn't have much to work with. I hate to say it, but the only thing that is going to improve this RV park is the judicial use of a bulldozer and a couple of dump trucks. The creepiness factor is just off the charts after dark, and there's too much old equipment and masonry lying around when the sun comes up. This park looked and felt like the sort of place where children go missing. I was not comfortable camping alone, not even with my trusty hounds on board. It wasn't the manager, and it wasn't the other guests, who were actually very thoughtful. It was location location location, and this park looks like the location for filming a low budget slasher movie. If this post-apocalyptic dump meets the standards of Passport America, then Passport America does not meet MY standards. I won't be renewing my membership. We camped at Root 66 RV Park in a Travel Trailer.

We picked this park because it was on the PA list. It was a bit spooky at first. There was an old broken down motel on the property that reminded me of the Bates Motel in the movie Psycho. Some old run down RVs in the lot, too. The owner was very nice. We just used electric. There was no sewer. Decided to just spend one night, so didn't even plug into the water, just spent the night and left. Noisy because close to highway, but quieted down at night. Probably would not stay here again.

This RV Park is just a gravel parking lot just off of interstate 40. So plan for some highway noise. The P/A rate with tax was $16 and that was too much for what it was. However, it provided electric & water(we did not use the sewer)and we were back on the interstate the next morning. It is just barely OK for a stopover. If there was a nice park closer to The Painted Desert & Petrified Forest we would have stayed there instead. We camped at Root 66 RV Park in a Motorhome.

This is a basic high desert RV park run by friendly onsite owners. Everything was clean and worked properly with a nice laundry. It is very convenient to The Painted Desert and The Petrified Forest. We had a great 3 day stop here and would recommend it. The rate was for PA, but they were very generous in accepting other discounts. I don't think they allow tents.

Thursday, May 23 – Root 66 RV Park, Sun Valley (Holbrook) AZ. This is a campground right off interstate 40 at exit 294 in the eastern part of the state. It is a small park with sites right next to each other with full hookups. It is run by a nice family and we checked in early in the morning so that we could spend the day at the Petrified Forest National Park about 17 miles north off interstate 40. We were coming from the west so it was easier to get a site in the morning and then drive to the park and take the park road from the north entrance to the south entrance and pick up 180 north to Holbrook and back to the campground. Holbrook is a great place to get gas with reasonable prices. This is a Passport America park so the cost was $16.50. Showers are extra and there is not much to do in the campground. It is a good overnight stop right off the highway and you can hear the cars and trucks from your site. There is 24 hour check in and checkout is at noon. It is a safe place to camp with reasonable costs. If we were traveling through AZ again and needed a place to stay on our travels we would stop again. It is also located on the historic route 66. We camped at Root 66 RV Park in a Motorhome.

This is not a luxury park, but this was fine by me, since I am usually not interested in paying for amenities I don't use (pools, playgrounds, and so forth). My site was near the interstate, but I didn't find noise to be a problem. It was perfect for a 1-night stay. We camped at Root 66 RV Park in a Travel Trailer.

This Park is small, with a few 50 amp, narrow sites--all gravel with a few trees. No Wi-Fi and Verizon MiFi worked, but was very slow. This park is convenient for a one night stop--next to the I-40 and close to Painted Desert National Park. We camped at Root 66 RV Park in a Motorhome.
