We stayed here for one night while traveling from Las Vegas to the East Coast. The park is a great overnight stop. Sites were long and level, easy in and out of the park. Utilities worked as they should and we had a clear shot of the sky for satellite. Verizon signal bounced from 3G to 1x. Owners friendly and helpful. Would stay again if in the area. We camped at Root 66 RV Park in a Motorhome.

Did not have Passport America and they would not honor any of the other cards we had. Site has water, elect and sewer but is gravel, has no trees. Very rustic park that is up for sale, so owner is not really doing much to make it look any better. Laundry room was clean but only has 2 machines ($1.75 to wash). NOTE this campground is out in the boonies..... the closest Walmart is 52 miles away. We camped at Root 66 RV Park in a Travel Trailer.

Tips for other Campers:

Only a few fast food places to eat in Holbrook closest grocery store or Walmart is in Show Low 52 miles away

A good place for an overnight spot. This is the closest camping spot to the Petrified Forest Forest national Park. It backs to the freeway but there are sites closer to the access road with no traffic noise. The couple that run the park are friendly and meet you at your rig to register you. The sites are gravel and level with 30 and 50 amp service, water and electricity. Visually not the best park but this is an overnight bargain if you have Passport America! No other discounts available. We camped at Root 66 RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

This is a gravel parking lot with hookups. The couple that own it are very nice people. When we pulled in we saw the For Sale sign on the park sign. We said, "Oh, so you're selling the park" to the man that was there. He said he wasn't selling it, other people were. We thought that meant he was the manager, not the owner but later we learned that "other people" was his wife. She wants to buy a little house and be able to take their daughter to the park. She was as nice as can be but obviously doesn't want to be tied down the the park any more. We think her husband loves tinkering around the very small park and is happy to stay put. I guess we'll find out how it turned out the next time we pass through.

They have a good supply of petrified wood for sale on the property. $1/lb for lesser colors and $2/lb for prettier ones. We bought several pieces. Rock hounds will love this! We camped at Root 66 RV Park in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

This is the closest camping for big rigs to the Petrified Forest. Also, this campground is called Sun Valley campground on Google Maps but the real name is Root 66.

Price reflects extra price for 50 amp power. Just a gravel lot, nothing to write home about, next to the freeway. Water is terrible, don't fill your tank up with it. Owners are very nice, but he was working on refurbishing a hauling trailer and spent lots of time banging and making excessive noise. No table, no fire ring, and very close to our neighbors. We camped at Root 66 RV Park in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

Safeway in Hollbrook. Propane on Navajo Blvd....best price on diesel at the Maverick on Navajo Blvd in Hollbrook.

This is a basic stop over park while driving on I-40. Near the interstate so there is noise. Sites are close together and flat. We had a FHU back in with 50 amp. This is our second stay and we will stay here again. We camped at Root 66 RV Park in a Motorhome.

For the money, this was an excellent accidental find. If you do the Petrified Forest National Park and Painted Desert from south to north, this may be your best option close to the park exit. Power, water, sewage, level sites, friendly owner/manager and WiFi for $16.50? The owners saw us pull in and made sure to meet us at the door of their home as I walked up as the sun set. I forgot to get the WiFi password and had to go back an hour later after dark, and they immediately answered the door with a smile and handed me the code. There are a lot of far more expensive parks with no management present after dark, much less friendly management. 5 stars for value, 5 for service, and 3 for cleanliness only because we did not use the facilities and have to give it a neutral rating on that. We camped at Root 66 RV Park in a Motorhome.

This isn't a fancy place, but the sites are level, the wifi strong, and I could get some TV channels with my antenna. The office is closed, so you go to the owner's house to sign in. Very convenient if you want to go to The Painted Desert and Petrified Forest. We camped at Root 66 RV Park in a Motorhome.

This place was for sale during our stop. It appears to have been a great RV Park at one time, but the office building once used is closed, and now the owners manage it out of their on site home. They were working on the property (their home) while we stayed here, so improvements are being made. They advertise WiFi, but with only one other person staying here we could never get anything. We camped at Root 66 RV Park in a Travel Trailer.

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.

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.

Great overnight stop or for visiting Petrified Forest NP. Onsite owners/managers are very friendly. Nothing fancy, gravel level parking spaces and park was neat and clean. Yes it is an older park and motel on site not used. We felt very safe here and heard very little interstate traffic, light sleepers might have a problem. Didn't use bathrooms. Only 4 or 5 other campers here, no seasonals or workers or run down RVs that I saw. Wifi availabe but we didn't ask for password, good water pressure and 50 amp was 121 on both legs, site spacing good by Route 66, maybe a little close by motel. We support the small rv parks when we can, don't need all the amenities that we don't use. We will definitely stay here again. Quaint little park worth staying at if passing through or visiting area for a day or two. We camped at Root 66 RV Park in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

Support the small RV park owners when you can.

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.

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.
