This is our first time actually camping at a campsite, usually we just camp in the Kaibab forest down the road for free. The campgrounds are surrounded by trees next to the lake. Although camp is not right next to the lake you can see it from most campsites. Sites are decent size and not too close to each other compared to other campgrounds. The lake is beautiful with fishing and a boat ramp available. No showers but there are many clean bathrooms and drinking water available. In the town of Williams there are many things to do such as the Deer Farm and Bearizona that we have done many times. Definitely one of my new favorite places to camp!
So we didn’t actually stay at the campsite, we camped a few miles down the road from the campsite. We have done it multiple times and love it. You aren’t on a campground with multiple people and are only a few miles from bathrooms and the beautiful lake. Bathrooms aren’t overly nice, but better than nothing. Water is available at the lake. Decent fishing, plenty of crawdads to catch and eat during the summer months! They do have a boat ramp and we have brought our kayak before. Williams is a cute small town. One of our favorite places to camp!
We missed the first turn off for this campsite, ended up on a road that was pretty beat up but a fun adventure for my Jeep and teardrop trailer. That area we drove through was full of very angery bees so be careful. Once we pulled in the nice hosts found us a spot perfect for our night of camping. It was a packed house that Sat night and one large group playing music a little too loud for our taste but at 10pm everything went quiet. Woke up to barley anyone else but us an two larger trailers. We loved the peace and quiet so much we decided to stay another night. Lake was beautiful, campground clean, bathrooms are well maintained and the water source worked fine for our 5 Gallon shower bag.
This campground is one of our favorites in AZ and our family has been frequenting it for about 25 years now. It is convenient for hiking and fishing, and is close to the lake but far enough away to promote safety and minimize mosquito damage. There are plenty of tent and RV spots, and unlike many campgrounds the spots can be close to each other if needed, which is great when you have a group of half tent half RV folks.
