Lodging taxes are added after the Good Sam discount so you pay 44.95 after tax. Sites are a mixture of sunny and open and nearby shade tree. About the only things this park doesn't have are a pool and paved parking pads. Here is a list of the amenities: daily continental breakfast of waffles, cereal, hard boiled eggs, juice, coffee and milk, free WiFi, free digital cable tv, 8 OTA TV channels, loaner movies, book exchange, strong Verizon signal, dog run, dog spa in heated building with professional grade tub, game room with pool, ping pong, fooseball, and darts, outdoor putting green, basketball, exercise equipment room, spa with 2 hot tubs, playground, common use fire pit with wood supply, picnic table at each site, laundry with 4 washers and dryers. If your rig has multiple TV's the digital cable signal may degrade due to multiple splitters. This happened to me and the park owner loaned my a signal booster which fixed the issue. Park owner couldn't have been nicer. Very pleasant office and grounds staff too. You do have to keep a sense of humor about the Royal Gorge Train which does comes by several times a day (both early and late) blowing its horn at the nearby crossing. We camped at Railside RV Ranch in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

The town of Williams, minutes away is very tourist oriented with lots of shops. Prices varied from reasonable to very high depending on the competition. The Royal Gorge South Rim is a 60 mile drive north and you should plan to go early. The higher park entrance fee, now $35 per car, did not seem to thin the crowds. Alternatively take the railway but that does limit you to one area of the park. Flagstaff is 30 miles to the east with name brand stores.

This was the BEST service I have ever received - anywhere. Very nice park, convenient to town and outstanding owner and office staff. Our RV was a bit too long to hook up and get satellite. The owner took it upon herself to call another park in town that had bigger spaces, made a reservation and cheerfully refunded my fee. I have never had anyone so interested in helping and taking care of a customer. Kudos to this owner, and I strongly suggest that anyone consider making a reservation here. We camped at Railside RV Ranch in a Motorhome.

This is a very nice, Friendly personnel, Park. Only about 60 miles to main entrance of Grand Canyon. They offer waffles and juice and cereal for breakfast in the office daily. They also offer discounted tickets to take the train to GC. If you choose to drive to GC they will come and let your dog out and take for a short walk. No set price, donations accepted. Didn't use but there was a hot tub, laundry facilities. We camped at Railside RV Ranch in a Fifth Wheel.

The park was well maintained and convenient to everything. The sites are gravel and level. They served a continental breakfast (free) while we were there. We were there on a weekend, so I'm not sure if it is everyday or just weekends. I felt like $45 was too much for the park with a Good Sam discount. The train that goes to the Grand Canyon passes by several times a day and blows its whistle. They don't run the train late or too early so it didn't bother us.

We were here for a week, mainly to visit the Grand Canyon south rim. Some of the sites had trees and ours did. There was a good picnic table and the hookups were well placed. The tracks for the Grand Canyon Railroad and another train were next to the campground. Although the GC train came back by 6 p.m., some nights we still heard the other train after midnight. Fortunately it didn't need to blow the whistle for a crossing so it didn't keep us up. We would return to this campground if we were in the area. We camped at Railside RV Ranch in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

Grand Canyon south rim was very busy by mid-day necessitating many people parking off-site and taking a shuttle to the visitor's center. When we were there the drive to the west was detoured and the end closed. The drive to the east was more peaceful. Sunset Crater and Wupatki Ruins loop was a nice drive. The Oak Canyon, Sedona, Montezuma Castle was another good day drive. Follow the website directions. Our GPS tried to take us down the wrong road to the campground.

Gravel roads and sites. Plenty of room between sites. Wifi decent. Verizon reception good. We could not get cable to come in, even with help, and all our stays before and after worked well. OTA was just a few channels. Great management. Free waffles and coffee/juice for breakfast. Did not use the spa. Conveniently located for visit to grand Canyon and town. easy in and out.

This is a decent park if you plan to stay in the Williams area for a few days. Sites are narrow - about 25' so you are close to your neighbor, but length is good and pad is level. Each site had a picnic table. 50a power good. Water pressure good. Park was clean and check-in service efficient. Wi-fi reception was up and down so we used our hotspot mainly which got a decent signal. OTA TV was limited with only 2 channels and 6 sub-channels received. The park's cable TV service was good although broadcast in standard def. The campground is located next to Grand Canyon railway tracks where you can watch the trains going daily to and from the canyon. Train noise is minimal. They offer a shuttle service to get to the Grand Canyon train station downtown. We enjoyed our stay and would come back again. We camped at Railside RV Ranch in a Fifth Wheel.

Railside RV Ranch offers superb service and facilities at a reasonable rate. When we arrived, our host greeted us warmly, showed us the upcoming weather for our stay, offered to make any tour reservations we wanted, and drove us to a couple of open spaces to allow us to choose the one we wanted. They offer daily continental breakfast, two hot tubs and a sauna enclosed in a beautiful knotty pine paneled building with lots of windows, a dog spa, with ramp, warm water, heater, and blow dryer, inexpensive laundry facilities, and complimentary pet-sitting service. Personality and customer service abound! Conveniently located between Grand Canyon and Flagstaff, this park is a gem! We camped at Railside RV Ranch in a Motorhome.

We stopped at Railside for a one-night layover enroute to Portland, OR. And we were so sorry to be informed they wouldn't be open for our return trip. We were excited to learn, however, that they may start staying open later into the winter beginning in 2018. The park is extremely well-organized and the owners couldn't be nicer and more anxious to please. And their very capable shuttle bus driver is available from morning to night to get you into the business district of Williams (about 2 miles). We will definitely stay at Railside whenever we are in the area. We camped at Railside RV Ranch in a Motorhome.

Ride the free (but feel free to tip) shuttle into town. Pine Country Restaurant is a "must eat." Be sure and bring your appetite. But they also have "to go" boxes.

Stayed one nite on cross country tour. Great personnel at checkend. Long pull through sites and she placed away from others because they weren't that busy. Continental breakfast that made the 41.50 worthwhile. Used the laundry. Verizon 3G 3 bars. Basically a large lot with a few trees all on gravel behind some train tracks but very comfortable this time of year because windows closed and furnace on. Would definitely return.

We totally enjoyed our stay. The complimentary breakfast was delicious. They have a community fire pit and provide the wood which offered a pleasant evening with other campers. One of the best places we stayed. We were sorry to leave because we wanted to enjoy the spa too.

The park is dirt, rock, and weeds. It was very uncomfortable to sit outside or walk our dogs. The park seems to be better suited for people who need a parking spot for sight seeing. The service was good, and an attraction for others is the free continental breakfast. It was impressive how quiet the park was at night. There are not a lot of good RV park options in Williams and since this was was packed everyday, people seem to enjoy Railside. We would appreciate some money being put into improvements such as more trees for shade, cement slabs, and some landscaping. We camped at Railside RV Ranch in a Motorhome.

This wasn't my first choice, but we had trouble finding a place over the Memorial Day weekend, so we stayed here a week due to lack of places on our preferred route. Rate reflects the weekly rate. As we drove in, I thought I'd made a big mistake. Rodeo grounds next door. A huge gravel parking lot with some trees in between rigs not that far apart. Freeway not a quarter mile away. Train tracks almost within spitting distance. I said to myself, I can get thru this noise, I can...Well, was I surprised! First thing, we made reservations on the Grand Canyon Railroad, which is practically worshipped around here. The office took care of that quite nicely. Then, I found out that they offer a free continental breakfast every day--coffee, juice, waffles, cereal, hard-boiled eggs--just like a nice hotel. Then, I found out that they have a free shuttle, not only to the railway station, but anywhere in town you'd like to go if you don't feel like driving or finding a parking place. Then, I found out that they offer a free BBQ over Memorial Day weekend (and two other holidays in the summer). With live music! I truly have never been so impressed with a campground anywhere, and I've been full-timing for several years. Staff, without exception, were friendly and bend-over-backwards helpful. They all seemed to be having as much fun as the campers were. Lots to see and do around here, as well, all within about 30-40 minutes driving distance. And the biggest surprise of all? It really wasn't noisy. Faint sounds of trains other than the GCRR during the nite. Couldn't hear the freeway. Even the rodeo wasn't loud. The GCRR coming thru was a celebratory sound for those of us who love RRs. Most days that happens about 9:15 and 5:30, and that is it. Maybe it helps to have low expectations to begin with, but I just can't say enuf good about this place! We camped at Railside RV Ranch in a Fifth Wheel.
