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. - LMandTinView

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. - LMandTinView

It's a great in town park. Williams is within walking distance. Location is the important part of this site. It's not what I consider a campground, more than a parking location to do things. Plenty of room for big rigs, even backing in.
Negative --my dogs didn't like the volcanic rock used fort mulch around the rv site. It hurt their paws. - Mike Hostetler

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

We made this Saturday night reservation during busy season on the same day, and snagged one of the very few remaining spots on a busy Grand Canyon weekend. About 1/2 of the sites are pull through, 1/2 backin, many plenty long enough for our big rig and toad. This is a great PA price for FHU, and it is very close to downtown Williams, making shopping and dining really easy. It's also located close to Bearizona. The staff are quite friendly and very efficient. At the same time there are a lot of "No" signs posted around the property. No parking, no stopping, do not drive here, etc. which always adds a bit of an edge to a stay. Because we had plans to do something on the morning of our departure that required us to leave our motorhome somewhere until noon, with a checkout time of 11:00 a.m., we asked if we could park our rig in their spacious and virtually empty car parking lot, or in their virtually empty storage lot for that one hour. We could, for $8. That irritated me. It wasn't like we were asking to leave it for a full day of sight seeing. WIFI was very strong and reliable. We would stay here again at the PA rate. - MissMyGolden

This RV Park had one feature that was absolutely essential to us - they had availability. There were very few places we could reserve at due to this being a high season here. I think this park has potential - but they have some work to do. The sites need to be levelled, including the "grassy" areas which are bumpy and virtually non-usable the way they are. Plant a few trees. Get rid of the painted spool tables wherever you have a decent picnic table and it appeared that there were good ones at most sites. I agree with the reviewers who don't like the "rules" focus - I think it is important to set rules but they are all worded in the most arbitrary fashion you could think of. Have someone rewrite them to get the behaviour you want but not appear as "Gestapo-like". Great check in service. With these few changes I think this could be a very desirable park. - Northern Sue

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

Good location in scenic area. Easy on and off I-40. Because there is a truck stop across the road it is quite noisy most of the time with trucks coming in and going out. Lava rock is used for road and site bed. It has, over time, pulverized into a fine powder. When it is dry this creates a red dust that settles on everything. Park was very busy this time of the year with people headed south and down for winter. Staff was great. - JC69
Aug 2016 - $35.00
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. - LMandTinView

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

Beautiful park nestled among the pines, but overall just okay for an overnight stay. Very tight sites, mostly unlevel gravel. When we chose from 2 available sites based on how level it was, there was NO satellite signal-not surprising among all the trees, but a bit disappointing. Very friendly and engaging staff, easy access from the interstate. - pnation53

Rate above included a KOA Customer Appreciation - "Stay Fri get Sat free". Check in was very smooth and quick. Stayed in space 85 which was not level so could not use picnic table. Sewer connection was too high for good discharge so used dump site instead. Fire ring was positioned at the back of the space -- too close to rear of RV to use safely. From walking around this was one of the few space with these challenges. Very good cell phone reception (Verizon) and Dish reception. Would stay here again just not in this spot. - sandyinpine

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

Really nice RV Park. Paved roads with decorative rock separating the sites. I would have given it a 10 except that RV Park itself has no amenities except for laundry, restroom and picnic area. The reset of the amenities are at the Hotel. If you call the hotel they will send a shuttle. Also there are three scheduled freight trains that come through during the day. The 6am morning freight train is very annoying. I was also surprised at the amount of traffic noise from I-40 given that is was a good distance away. WiFi was OK but not very fast and would drop out. We would stay there again. - newbies2016

You definitely get what you pay for. Level, paved pull thru with hookups that were all in good repair. Bathroom/laundry very clean with large showers/dressing area. Water pressure was not as much as I would have liked. EXCELLENT WI-FI - no problems at all. Shuttle will drive you to the railway to ride to Grand Canyon.
If train noise bothers you at night - would not recommend. There were at least 2 trains per night. - Lynn and Linda

Nice clean park located about 30 miles west of Flagstaff. Easy access off I-40. Sites are fairly level asphalt, long enough for our 42' 5th wheel and truck but pretty close together. Free cable, wi-fi and picnic table at each site. No fenced dog area and no good place to walk your dog. They need to have an area for pets not covered with rocks. Great location. Easy walk to downtown Williams, about an hour from the Grand Canyon and next to the Grand Canyon Railroad. No pool but can use facilities at the neighboring hotel. Have pull thru and back-in sites. Accept Passport America during "off season" which makes this park very reasonable for our stay. - travelswithpuppies

We stayed here one night. The space was a back-in and it was roomy enough. It is a nice park and quiet. Friendly staff. - ArmandV

The facilities at this park are actually OK. The park was less than half full. We had one of their premium, FHU, pull through sites with minimal (less than 20 channels and NO weather channel) cable TV. Our cost was less that previous reviews because the season is winding down. The Wi-Fi was OK with just a couple short disconnects. The big problem for us was how un-level the site was. For the most expensive sites, the drop from right to left was the worst I have experienced in years. After 20 minutes of trying to find a sot on the sites where we could possibly get reasonable level, we gave up, We went back to the office and got another site. The new site had the same slant but was doable with a couple boards. The fact that they even assigned us the first site and then seemed put out that we found the site unacceptable, lowers the "service" ranking. 2 hours later they put a rental RV in the site we rejected. All you had to do was look at their Class C to see that it was on a terrible slant all night. The bathroom and shower facilities are completely inadequate for a park that is often full during the height of the season and has so many many non-sewer sites. In addition to the usual bath facilities in the main building there are several satellite bathhouses, but they are small and not all of them have showers. They did have a dumpster for recycling. - Jerry S

This is a large park, all rock and gravel & not level. Lots of overnighters & right on highway going to Grand Canyon so always noisy. They had only a couple brochures available on the park & staff couldn't help with bookings. The grounds were clean but bathrooms were not. Considering the number of people using the facilities, staff needsto check & clean them
more often. This park is way over priced for what you get. - Allen1775

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
May 2006 - $26.00
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 was having engine problems and had to stay somewhere for the night. The office was not open so I pulled into an open spot and planned to check in the morning. At 6am someone was banging on my door threatening to call the police because I was not registered. It was a nightmare. The sites are not level, the park is dirty and the staff unfriendly. I do not recommend this park. Keep rolling and avoid at all costs. - RV4me16

Our truck broke down 2 miles from Ash Fork. Good Sam ERS selected this CG for us.
This is a very old, former KOA. Been through a couple of owners since then. As others have stated, the current owner has been putting a lot of money into bringing this place back to its former glory.
We found the Managers to be very accommodating and very knowledgeable of the area. This came in handy as we had 9 days to do sightseeing.
For the value - I'd stay here again.
Rate listed was approximate GS daily rate - I paid for a week, then added 2 more nights. - jbeletti

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
