Awesome place to stay! Will come back! Beautiful views, super staff! Clean bathrooms we wouldn't have normally used. But the because of freezing cold conditions for the night we had to disconnect our water hose. - RV-NCcamping

The location of the park on a hillside overlooking countryside, I-40 through the valley, and distant freight trains was delightful. However, the ongoing construction of a truck stop right up the hill from the park may impact the ambiance. Laundry was clean, WiFi was good, excellent Verizon 4G signal. Big pieces of crushed red rock was troublesome for small dogs feet. - jbrucemagon

This park has very little to offer. The laundry is mostly out of order and the managers definitely need a better attitude.. The only good thing is the close proximity of Williams. Would always look for another park when in this area. - DalenDeb

The office staff is very friendly and accommodating. We had paid for multiple nights but after seeing that the park voltage was only 103 volts during the hot afternoon we asked for and received a refund so we could relocate. Voltage in the morning was 118 volts. Could not get level as entire campground was on a slant. Site was large, but rocks, railroad ties, and other vehicles prevented easy access. Site was gravel and uncut weeds. A large cable reel in poor condition was our "table". No shade. Railroad tracks on one side of the campground and I-40 on the other side provided noise but no train whistles. Indoor poor, laundry, and restrooms were clean. I would not stay here again due to voltage problems. - Mr. Rick

Nice park with lots of rules. Staff seems pleasant enough. The shower stalls are clean but the one curtain I touched felt slimy. Didn't investigate further. I liked the clean, well kept utility connections.
They didn't have any Passport America sites (whatever that means) so they put us in a "Deluxe" site. I can't see any difference other than the extra $10 they charged us. There's no mention of PA vs Deluxe sites on either the park's website or the PA site. Personally, I think it's just a "Revenue Improvement Plan Offering Frivolous Features" (aka rip off) but we were tired an needed a place for a few days. - LM&TinView

Stayed here 5 nights. We had site 39 at the top of the park. Perfect for satellite coverage. Sites are gravel. Ours was a little tricky to level the coach but lots of room and good facilities. Read some other reviews on this park about the check in staff. We did not encounter anything of the sort and in fact found them to be very cheerful and eager to help out. Lots of signs and rules but IMO, the park is well run.
Large fire pit and BBQ's for groups by the Laundry Room. Did not use but looked like a good set up. - ddrichter

This is the closest KOA to the Grand Canyon, and is MUCH better than staying at the Railroad RV park in Williams--unless you are a fan of freight trains 5x per night blowing whistles and rattling your RV! This park I gave a "7" rating to because while it is convenient, there are flaws. Those flaws do not apply to the staff who work there, they were incredibly nice. Rather the flaws are in the park itself unfortunately.
For instance, the sites were not very level, and are all gravel. My feeling is that if you're constructing a park, level out the sites, then add the gravel. Which brings me to the second reason why I downgraded: it was under construction while we were there, and I'm guessing the workers hit a water line somewhere because water pressure throughout the park was minimal to low. Ours so much so that I put water in the tank, and used our pump to get adequate pressure. The restrooms were very clean and seemed to work though the toilets didn't flush well, probably again due to water pressure. Hopefully they'll get things in order, we'd stay here again, but would check first to see if water pressure was working fine. - Iplar

Small park but very nice. We stayed here for two days in early March and found it very convenient to visit the Grand Canyon and the surrounding area, including the town of Williams which was full of neat little shops. The gift shop is well stocked, the staff is nice and knowledgeable about the area. The sites are gravel, most are pull through. They include a picnic table and a fire ring. The showers and bathrooms are great - individual rooms that include shower, toilet and sink, with locking doors. Very nice for privacy and very clean. - Dani1081

Long sites but pretty close. I was dumping my tanks a few feet from the neighbors eating at their picnic table. The grounds are red lava rock, water pressure is very low. There are lots of activities for kids, albeit they charge for everything. The pool was so warm (and cloudy) that it was not refreshing. The gas station right next to the KOA is the cheapest gas around by 10 cents. Wi-Fi is contracted out and doesn't work with an iPhone. - Bill & Alisen

Lots and lots of wild children, not taught campsite etiquette by their purblind parents. They ride their bikes and scooters thru your site as if it was their site. The sites do not have much free space between you and your neighbor. No shade whatsoever and the indoor pool was a joke. The pool also serves the hotel and was very small and crowded. Add the screaming children and adults from RV park and hotel and that creates a wild experience! Showers were OK, laundry room had a line of RV'ers waiting to use the facility. Overall, nice place - may or may not return. - SD75mac

Wish it had a pool and Pickleball Courts. They have a shuttle service and walk to the train. - dd2some

Modern park adjacent to Grand Canyon Railway and walking distance to Williams. Sites are asphalt and reasonably long. Many sites are not level and jacks were lifting wheels off ground to get level. Wi-Fi and cable TV were awful. Most other campers were having same problem. Office staff was not helpful and nothing was fixed in our 5 day stay. - Bufford

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

I love this place! We occupied a pull-through site with our 38 foot motorhome. We were able to get DirecTV by peeking through the abundant tree coverage. Make sure you come to this campground with water in your tank and your other tanks empty. There is no dump in the park. There are new asphalt roads and site parking. The campground host was very helpful. I was surprised that you could hear so much highway noise here. Thanks for the co-mingled recycling here; wish Corps of Engineers would do likewise in their campgrounds. We would stay here again. - Kent and Margaret

This CG has 3 large group areas and also individual and double sites. It is really nice in the pines and the sites are well-spaced with many pull-throughs. We planned to stay 4 nights but liked it so much we stayed for 8. The lake was really down because of the drought conditions, but a few people were still fishing. No campfires either. Quiet and friendly hosts kept things well-maintained. We went to one of the private CGs in Williams to use their dump facilities. Dry camping with pit toilets and tables at each site. - gtogrl1

We ended up at this RV park because our reserved spot at another park was given to someone else. That park called Railside (which they highly recommended) to see if we could be accommodated. Note that Railside is right next to train tracks so if you want nice and quiet it will not happen there. We paid for a week because we were afraid that we would not be able to find another place as this is a busy time in Williams, being just before the July 4th weekend. The pull-through site was just barely long enough. There are no picnic tables. One of their rules is to please not use carpets on the ground by your RV so that the grass is not disturbed. Um, what grass? The camp itself could use a lot of landscaping improvements; it just looks scraggly, rundown and not conducive to taking a stroll around the campground at all. They do offer free coffee and Belgian waffles in the morning. I did try the waffles one morning and have to say they are really good. Overall however, I would not choose to stay here again, unless it was just for one night. As for a rating of our site, it was not bad but I would also say it was not satisfactory (if that makes sense to you), so I did not rate it. - ParrotMom

We stayed 9 days. There was enough room for trailer with pickup parked next to it and no extra space. Not too spacey. Their ad advertises cable, there was none. The ad included WiFi which ours and both neighbors on each side did not work. Park was gravel. There were trees for some spaces. No pool. There was a lot of train noise in the morning and evening. There happened to be a rodeo, which was 1 block away that created lots of dust. They did serve continental breakfast which was good. Workers were very nice. - Littlegrami

We loved this park. Everyone was friendly and helpful. Wonderful Memorial Day barbecue. Free Continental breakfast. Shuttle to Grand Canyon Railway. We felt comfortable and safe here. Will be back. - judy p

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

OK, the good: Very friendly staff, nice small store, nice indoor pool, nice outdoor breakfast/dinner cafe and a very nice playground and fenced in dog run area.
The bad: First, our site was hopelessly out of level as many, many other sites were. I used every available blocking mechanism I had with me to get our fifth wheel level. Most parks built on a sloping site have sites stair stepped so they're level. Not here.
Second: No cable TV. For a campground this size? Really?
Third: Upon check in, you are given, and told to wear fluorescent orange wristbands while you stay here, so the staff can easily identify campers.
Fourth: Noise! If you want a park that is reasonably quiet, this is not it! We were in the rear of the park, but the park is located adjacent to Interstate 40, (Old Highway Route 66) which has a monumental amount of loud traffic and roaring big rigs 24/7. If you can handle that OK, the East/West main railroad corridor is just across the freeway. Huge trains pass by about every 15 -30 minutes, again...24/7. The campground is located just east of Williams, so ALL westbound trains blow their horns next to the campground before they enter Williams.
There are NO other facilities within walking distance. This campground is just east of Williams with its own Exit (167) off the freeway. There are several good campgrounds in Williams, as well as along the 54 mile access road to the Grand Canyon I am sure that are quieter, have level sites, and don't require identifying wrist bands. We will never return here primarily due to the incessant nonstop noise. - AlaskaJack

Great camp ground! Escorted to our site, easy access sites are not too level but expected in the forest. Large indoor pool, quite at night. Only complaint is that there we were 3 separate RVs and they could not get our sites together even with 3 months reservations. - 10shifter

Note this park is NOT found by GPS so keep your eyes open. Also be very careful of pets. Nothing but lava rock which cuts tender paws something fierce. Sites are rather close but do have a fire ring and tables. Clean, and Laundry is clean and well maintained. Has a Laundry sink for hand washables. - Gloria S.
