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

Stayed 5 nights. Rate includes taxes and discounts. Heavy construction on new "Love's" travel center next door, but only moderate construction noise during the day (it will be a real plus for the future). Hosts are absolutely top notch. Their WiFi seems to have been upgraded since our last stay and that is surely appreciated. Ingress, egress and set up is smooth and easy. Local train system is a noise factor at night, but this park is furthest from the source making it "sound" instead of "noise." This park has always been very pleasant and we will return. - wkndwrrr2

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

Nice friendly park. No escort to your site. Pool was at the hotel so you have to ride the shuttle or you can walk. Showers were ok, I think they could have used a good cleaning. Not much shade on the sites. Sites were kinda narrow. No dog park. - Yepwearedoingit

This park is exceptionally clean rv park with the train nearby to ride to Grand Canyon , Williams AZ is a nice town to visit , and train ride up to canyon was nice , however when we come back we will drive up, when you camped at rv park the indoor pool was one of the benefits of camping there , the indoor pool and hot tub was great, the fitness area looked great but I didn't use it. - Vetl82

We stayed here because we were taking the Grand Canyon Railway up into the park. This is essentially an overpriced parking lot. When we made the reservation, we thought the only train near the park would be the Grand Canyon Railway; we were wrong. Large, loud freight trains run by the park (as in, RV, ten feet, fence, ten feet, railroad tracks) several times during the night, sounding their horns at the crossings. When we checked in, the water spigot was missing some parts, so I couldn't hook up. I notified the front desk and they had a maintenance worker there to fix it in less than five minutes. The desk staff was also very friendly. The pool, which is indoors across the street at the hotel, had so much chlorine that our eyes burned as soon as we walked into the pool room. The train ride itself was awesome and we would definitely do that again, but we would find somewhere else to stay. - Josh H

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

Best dry camping available. $9 rate reflects senior 50% discount. This campground has had a $1.5 million upgrade thanks to the government stimulus money. I think it was money well spent. - lyzzards

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

Railside RV Park
Our camping club camped at Railside RV Ranch & Cabin Resort from May 14 through May 18 of this year. HOSPITALITY is a word I would have to associate with this Resort. From the welcoming sign when we checked in to the free daily breakfasts of cereal, hard-boiled eggs, juice, coffee and the delicious home-made fresh cream waffles we were made to feel extremely welcomed. The staff is courteous and helpful. The park is clean and well-maintained. When making our reservations I had asked if there was a room where our group might gather for meals and visiting. Their rec room was made available to us and was set up for us for our enjoyment. They provide a free shuttle into downtown Williams and will gladly make reservations for any of the restaurants or activities in town. If I could give more than 5 stars, I would. - Go Go Girl

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

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.

I made advanced reservations, as usual, for my KOA stay. Check-in was fast, friendly, and efficient. We were escorted to our site by a guide in a golf cart. Both water and electric hookups were well placed and were easily reached for use by our RV. All this said, I was told it was obligatory to wear a purple wristband to identify myself as a paying camper as there have been many freeloaders trying to camp for free. I draw the line at having to wear a label. I was told I would be sternly chastised if I did not wear it. My site, #48, was neither flat nor level. I have levelers that were fully extended in the front and my RV was barely level enough to allow me to run the fridge! Most KOA's I have stayed at have had level sites and no ridiculous identification requirements. Kids will enjoy staying here. They have go karts, mini-golf, and a great playground, but I think I can find a better place to stay on my next visit. I was disappointed in this KOA. - Fecampbe
