8 Parks near Williams, Arizona
Sep 2015 - $39.00
Canyon Gateway RV Park is located conveniently off the freeway and features long pull-thru spaces with groomed shade trees at each end. This park does not offer much in the way of extra ammenities, but the staff is friendly, and electric, water and sewer hookups all worked well. Cable TV was very limited and park WiFi did not meet our needs. Our Verizon service worked adequately. All sites are covered with red lava rocks about the size of a quarter. The road surface was covered with a fine red powder which does tend to get on everything. There were a few concrete picnic tables scattered throughout the park, but they could not be moved and most sites did not have a table. We stayed at this park during low season, so had very convenient access to our rig. Parking tow vehicles while the park is full might be a bit of a problem. This park does not recycle. We would happily stay here again. - The Borgs

Rate with tax is $33.24. Nice location, easy off the freeway in the cute, "Rt. 66" town of Williams, but some freeway noise and more noise from the neighboring Love's truck stop. Difficult to leave windows open at night to cool off because of this. Red packed dirt w/scattered lava rock ranging from pea size to peach size and everything in between. Chunks of lava rock and dog mess look the same so when dog owners allowed pets to do their business at the edge of our site and in empty sites, not everything got picked up. Ok spot when traveling through. - lets move

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

This park will work if there are no other alternatives. Most sites (including ours) are gravel combined with lots of weeds. In addition they are not level. Our sewer hookup flows uphill- not very desirable. Voltage was bare minimum acceptable at 110V on each leg of the 50 amp service. The cable spool reel table is totally dilapidated and unusable. Park directions say to "please walk your pets into the nearby forest...... and never inside the RV park...." On a positive note, the office staff is certainly pleasant, and the sites are reasonable size. Doubt if we'll stay here again. - Fred and Lynne

Loved the place, our style. Clean, organized and great staff. Escorted us to our site, explained the rules, sites and places to eat, very helpful. Good WIFI, TV and dog had his run of the forest with leash on of course. We were very impressed with this resort. Clean and easy on and off, plenty of room for 4 slides, 40 foot and a toad. Stayed here 2 nights and will make it a point to come back. - rdmike

I stayed here using my Passport America membership. I paid $25.00 for a 50amp pull thru site. The campground was quiet. It a great place to stay while exploring the area. The front desk clerk was friendly she showed us several restaurant to eat at in Williams, AZ. My site was level. The other campers were great people. We stayed here in our 33ft motorhome. I visited the Grand Canyon National Park and Wupatki National Monument. - Seize the Day RV Adventures

This is a perfect high desert park. The sites have trees and landscaping. The power, cable and WIFI are OK. The water here is trucked in, No Water Well, but the pressure is adequate. Great staff and cute store. We stayed 7 nights and didn't want to leave. - edbtx1

This is a lovely campground with flat sites on gravel. There are a few new plantings and rigs are fairly close. There is no grass. Landscaping consists of gravel and crushed red rock. There is no dog run, but they do have kennel facilities ($) if you are spending time at the Grand Canyon. The train station is within walking distance. - Dreaming

A very clean, well maintained park. All utilities worked well. Unable to access their wifi. Walking distance to town. About an hour drive to the Grand Canyon. We would stay here again. - Jane-D100

The park was so clean and nice we thought it was brand new, it is actually 8 years old. Getting it for the PA rate made it amazing. You can walk to town, places to eat, Safeway and the train station. You have access to a heated pool and exercise room at the motel. Wifi was OK. Easy to get off and on the highway. We drove to the South Rim. Only negative was the train track was right there but with the A/C running it was not a problem. We do not have a pet, but they have a pet sitting service. We would definitely stay here again. - BorntoCruise

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

Space was long enough for our 36' motorhome plus tow. We had all 4 slides out and still had enough room between rigs for happy hour for 16 people in chairs. Site was dead level. Meeting room is small but adequate for smaller groups with tent area for large groups. The staff is extremely friendly and helpful. Free breakfast is good. Fairly quiet but there are trains about 1/2 mile away. The only train that runs past the park is the Grand Canyon Railroad. - norm scherer

Wifi was good, but a bit sporatic. Great free breakfast. If pet friendly, really need more trash cans. We'll be baaaack. Picnic tables at site would be nice. Great weather, even with lots of rain. - User3157
Aug 2015 - $40.00
Sites are small making putting out slides an adventure, sites are dirty and unlevel, interior roads and exit roads are small and dotted with vehicles in the road you must dodge. Not big rig friendly, probably OK if you have a 30 ft or smaller rig. Would not recommend. - mlg2919

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
Sep 2015 - $45.00
We stayed in Sept 2015. Check in was quick and friendly, we were guided to our site #107. The site was long enough but not very level but a little work with our leveler jacks and we were good, the place is on a hillside. No cable but should have for what the price is. WIFI worked great, we didn't use any of the family stuff golf, go arts, pool but they looked fine. We have been here before and will return, overall a nice park. - blowing weeds

I was parked in a pull through site but trees were too close to the site so I had to back out. Their were other spots available during my stay so I requested to move to another when the site behind me was vacated. The vacated site would have made it easy to move but management would not allow me to move even though the site I requested was vacant the entire length of my stay. The park itself is in the pines and pretty nice. - Alan King

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
