Still one of our favorite NF CGs. We don't stay at the Group Area per se, but the individual campsites are in the same area, just a different loop.
This year, we found that we get slightly better cell coverage at the northwest end of the CG, near the host. - LM&TinView

This "Dry Camping" - so no utilities. Very nice picnic tables and fire rings. I rated the CG a ten on the merits of the questions, but be warned - there is plenty of noise from people running generators, which is frustrating, because I wouldn't take the gift of one.
I have a 19' Airstream - other campers were mostly Class A's and larger 5th wheels. the larger the "rigs" the more generator noise you'll encounter. - Anthony Sherman

This is an outstanding campground for those who don't need/want utilities. There's water at each (very clean) vault toilet, but filling RVs is discouraged. The driveways and pads are all asphalt (note: can't select asphalt in Site Surface) so there's hardly any dust. There are Ponderosa pines all around that cut down wind but allow enough sunlight so solar panels work fine.
The campground is just 1.6 miles north of I-40 so it's convenient for an overnight stay vs the hassle of checking into a commercial campground . The hosts are helpful and personable except one blowhard who's annoying but harmless.
There's a dump station at Love's Truck Stop 4 miles west on I-40. They also have good fuel prices, propane, a tire shop if you need it and, of course, fast food. - LM&TinView

This park is close to a lot of attractions. The owners and staff are very nice and friendly. They want you to have a nice stay. Free breakfast every morning if you want. Laundry prices cheap. Gravel sites, could be a little wider but that seems to be the norm. We stayed a month and paid $648.37. Had some problems with cable but that was fixed. Internet slow. Would stay here again. - milodog

Agree with the previous person who asked why this place gets so rated so high. We stayed for two nights and the place is ok but not 4 or 5 star by any stretch of the imagination. It is all gravel, the spaces are very close together and roads are very narrow.
They also do not monitor how many people they have in each space to wit, the space next to us had 6 adults for a single trailer. Because they could not fit in the single trailer, they set up tents around the trailer. Since they had nowhere to go at night, they sat around talking loudly and laughing until midnight. Since the spaces were so close, this put them right outside our bedroom window. Yes, when I spoke to the owner/desk person/manager in the morning about the noise at midnight, she said she would speak to them but the damage was done by then. She also told me that she lived on site 24/7 but I never saw anyone driving around at curfew checking for noisy rowdy groups like other parks.
Speaking of the owner/manager/desk lady, do not even think about approaching her in the morning to ask about anything. When I tried to explain to her that we were simply trying to pay for the next night and trying to find out the office hours, she pointed to the wall inside the office and said it says "8 to 5." When I pointed out to her that the hours are not posted outside, she became more irritated and finally said, "Fine, I am trying to start my day here but I will stop everything just for you."
I could go on but space is limited. Stay Elsewhere! She does not deserve any more business from us or our travel group. Go to the nicer and friendlier RV park next to the GC rail depot downtown! If you must go, bring bug spray and don't count on room for the dogs to run unless you like dealing with fox tails. - centurion493

It was just a one night stay but it worked out fine for us. Plenty of area around the park for walking the dog & letting him run! Enjoyed the complimentary breakfast as well. We would stay here again! - Tourbooklou

We stayed in Canyon Motel during a visit to the Grand Canyon which is not too far. Williams has some nice restaurants and shops to spend an afternoon. The check in process was easy and we were escorted to our site. Staff was friendly and shared info about the town of Williams and the Grand Canyon. As some others have said in reviews, they do have a lot of rules here and signs posted everywhere. But that didn't bother us as the rules were addressing issues that made sense. There is basic cable that worked fine. The wifi worked most of the time. The park is gravel, with few trees. Our site was level and didn't have a table but did have shade to the west. - Traveling_swallow

Very nice park with pull through and back in sites; can handle big rigs and has a place for tenters. The electric was good as well as the water quality. All sites were FHU, with WiFi and cable. The pool was closed when we were there due to flooding, but they do have an indoor pool. There is a small playground; no dog park. There was no rec area/game room. The campground was right on the National Forest line so I was able to walk into it to let the dogs loose. Only bad thing about the National Forest was no trail and LOTS of rocks. The park itself was really nice and we enjoyed staying there. - Kerch Family

Planned two nites - stayed four. Not half a mile from I-40 (exit 165) - no road noise; trains plentiful, but no bother, and enjoyed hearing them. Access is very easy. Fairly level sites - clean and neat - hookups convenient - sites plenty long for any rig and tow (a few back-ins might not do 40-footers). Rail car and cabooses are part of the motel, along with several, more traditional, motel units. Indoor pool. Guessing a few monthly folks (Williams is a nice place to spend a month or so), but all sites were well-kept. Seems owner/manager has rules, and all are expected to follow them - we liked how they run the place, and office staff is very engaging and professional. We plan on coming back to this area, and will be staying here again. - jtids

This is a Kaibab Forest Campground with no hookups. It is 19 miles southeast of Williams and the last 10 miles is on a gravel road. The campground fills up on the weekends in the summer, reservations for some sites are available. The lake is stocked for fishing and good for kayaking or canoeing, small electric motors are allowed. Good ATV roads are near by. The camp hosts were very friendly and helpful. National Parks Passes will decrease the nightly rate by 50%. - JEMc

Nice KOA outside of Williams Arizona. Beautiful area in tall pine trees. Easy in and out for our Motorhome. Ample size long space for big rigs. Several nice dog runs. Relaxed area with many activies for a family. Personal was pleasant and helpful. Short distance to Williams and services. - JacktheRat

Stopped here one night while passing through the area. Didn't get to see or do much since it rained most of the evening. Park is laid out in a big circle and all sites are pull-throughs. We were greeted in the office and helped very efficiently. As already mentioned by another reviewer, although we had paid-in-full for the site when making the reservation, they hit us for a water surcharge "since we have to truck in our drinking water". Seems to me that is just a cost of doing business and should be factored into the nightly rate. I don't know and wasn't told if this is a temporary situation or if this trucked in water is permanent. Not terrible - I think the surcharge was less than $3 for one night.
We were escorted to our site, which we could not get into with a pine branch hitting the top of our 5th wheel. Seem it wouldn't be that complicated to keep the trees trimmed?
They have an on-site cafe which is open for dinner and breakfast. We had burgers for dinner and they were good. The rest of the menu looked good.
This worked for an overnight stop. We will probably stay there again if we need a stay in the Williams area. - FireFlyer

Very nice piney, woodsy campground. All pull-throughs. Fairly level sites with fair amount of space between sites. Far enough from Hwy 40 to be quiet. Lots of far off trains but not too loud. - Chuckster59

Red cinder and very uneven sites. Our self levelling wouldn't work without another 4 inches of packing on some of the legs. Junior at check-in didn't give out full info pack and when asked about visiting the Grand Canyon I was told to drive straight up the road! Laundry a huge disappointment. Not enough machine and they don't perform well. However the park is ideal for visiting the Grand Canyon but take a Papillon Helicopter, it's fabulous! - Janet-UK

Very nice campground. Lots were spacious and offered some shade. Site surface was gravel and featured a fire ring and picnic table.
It was a little far from the Grand Canyon (about 46 miles one way) but very near to Bearizona, which was a fun place to visit. Our site was very spacious. Very family friendly. - Dkkirkland

This is a very good park for visiting The Grand Canyon if you can't get in to one in or near the park. It's 45 miles to the Grand Canyon entrance. The park is clean and groomed. Sites are iron ore type rock and are fairly level. Wifi signal is fair depending on where you are and how many people are using it. Park is busy. Lots of overnighters. We would stay here again if we couldn't find something closer. - bb6306

All roads and sites within the park are asphalt. Everything else is rock, making it uncomfortable for pets. Some sites are level while others are nowhere close. Still it appears the best park for the value within driving distance to the Grand Canyon. Sewer hoses must be on supports and jack pads are required. Our site was level. - Bamagolfer

We camped here with friends so we booked a buddy site where we could pull in next to each other and have the doors of the rv, s face each other which was cool. No grass, but rock seperating the sites which did not bother me at all. Power, water etc. all worked well. The cable TV did not but, I was there for the Grand Canyon, so not even worth complaining about. My site was level, grounds are very clean, and we saw maintenance people emptying trash cans every few hours. We did not use bathrooms/showers, because, I bought an RV to enjoy my own bathroom. While you are 45 minutes from the Grand Canyon, Williams is a cool little town to visit in the evening. We would stay here again when in the area. - desertcamper05

Don't be fooled by the pretty photos of red lava streets and green trees; behind the photos this park is a dump. It is about 75% filled with low income, permanent residents, living in old, dilapidated trailers and motorhomes. There no apparent effort by the management to police these residents, maintain the sites, or clean the grounds.
A sign in the office states "No Refunds." So be forewarned, If you end up parked next to white trash in an old trailer with three dogs and four kids, your tough luck. Suggest you drive through, before you pay. - Wecruise

This park is located directly across the road from Love's Travel Stop. There are 18-wheelers coming and going until late at night. The noise, combined with the bright lights, gets old. I wouldn't want to be here more than one day. There was a horse trailer parked next to us that seemed to attract flies.
Sewer connection plus 20 and 30 amp electricity. Power was stable and the pedestal was clean. - LM&TinView

Friendly, courteous staff. Good location close to town. Easy transportation into Williams with golf cart pick up and return from campsite (cost was a tip). Offered an in depth tour of Grand Canyon available from campsite to Grand Canyon National Park and return by Dave's Grand Canyon Tours. Pricey but we felt worth the money. We had a great pull-through location overlooking a large meadow. - Bobster43

This campground was a beautiful campground and good location. The setting was nice, the sites were very nice, and the price was good. This campground mangers cared about their campground, no trash anywhere. Everyone including management was very nice and helpful. I would return to this place again and recommend to anyone. - private0012

In my view this rv park has more pine trees and a prettier setting than any commercial park from Flagstaff to Williams. The sites are a crushed gravel-type material and most are fairly level. It would have been nicer if there was a little more room between sites but none of the other parks are generous in this respect. New ownership needs to do a few things like add cable and do a little site grooming. Limited TV service can be gotten from an antenna but it's not real clear. The biggest negative is the park's proximity to the railroad tracks. The BNSF is very active along this stretch of I-40 and the engineers blow the train horn 4 times each time it passes by the area both east and westbound. We had a nice campfire amidst the aromatic pines in the evening. I would stay here again. - exportman

I had read the last review which was a pretty good and decided to give it a try. We stayed a week. It is very easy to see how much work the new owners are putting into the park and they are very nice and so helpful! Excited about owning the park they have wonderful plans to upgrade, restore and add new features to the park. I would defiantly come back...I'll want to see what they've done and I am very sure my rating of "8" will go up! So, give it a chance. The prices are very reasonable and it is close to "The Canyon" and other fun vacation venues in the area. - Nancy T

Well, I'm going to go against the grain and give this park a good review. Yeah, it's little rough around the edges but the new management are very nice people doing all they can to turn the place around. The sites are level, there is shade over many, water pressure is good, and the internet is free, reliable, and fast. Those things are not something a lot of parks can claim. I suggest you give this place a chance and my impression is it's only going to get better. - starfishprime

Pulled in and could not believe the mess this place is. Took us to our site, more of a mess, junk all over etc. Wife said she would rather stay in a Wal-Mart than this place as it looked so bad. How this is a Good Sam's park I would never know. We left. - rdmike
