Nice location if coming to Holbrook AZ

Great proximity to the Petrified forrest NP. Campsites were wide and level. Nice amenities include the chairs, table and fire pit. It also had a fair amount of privacy. Nice experience. Staff were. friendly and helpful.

The power did go out with 102F. The staff restored power and came around to all campsites with the status, Much appreciated.

Never disappoints

We live in the Phoenix area, and we use this KOA as a launching off point for trips to the East. The staff are always friendly and helpful. The grounds are well maintained. We were assigned spot #58 which is a big spot with a paver patio, furniture and a firepit. It also has privacy fencing on each side and full hookups. With our KOA discount it was $81.83. This was our first time with this large of a spot. Next time, we will go back to a regular spot again for a better price. The location is just off Interstate 40 which makes it convenient, but you can hear some of the freeway noise and an occasional train. They serve a delicious breakfast with a good variety that has an all you can eat pancake option for only $3.99. There is also a Cowboy Cookout every night. They are making more improvements to the grounds. Some spots will have a private enclosed patio with a gazebo and fire pit. For dog owners, there are some spots with your own enclosure, but those are hard to get. There is a dog run as well as a designated dog walking area with trees and trash cans.

Okay.

Stayed here Nov 21-23, 2021. 

Firstly, these sites are pretty tight.  They are level, but tight.  All gravel. Secondly, there's nothing for dogs.  They may advertise as pet friendly, but it's really just not.  There's an area designated for a pet walk, but it's just not a pet walk at all.  You have the option to pay an extra $20 for a site that includes a little area for your doggo, but it's about a 4x4 cage with fake grass.  Really only big enough for a toy chihuahua to comfortably use it for potty time.  The restrooms were clean and decent.  Wifi decent. Laundry facility decent. This place is pretty straight forward in how it's designed and what it has to offer.  If you don't have pets, then this place might be good for you. Overall, it was okay for 2 nights, but no more than that.

Great stay

Stayed here on our way from california to home. Greeter was awesome he was very very helpful. Full hookups pull through spot. Pretty level site. We did have to use washer and dryers. Almost all the washers were fictional on the other hand only 3 of 8 dryers worked. We did decide to use the showers so we could take a little longer shower and shave and not have to take a navy shower. Showers were very clean and spacious to change in. The staff the next morning was very helpful with info to have breakfast and pick up some fluids needed for vehicles. Very close to the petrified forest which is a must see, also close to meteor crater. We plan on coming back and staying here again to actually hike some of the trails in the forest.

Great for stopover

Convenient to the interstate, clean, straight forward, and easy spot to stop while traveling!

There was substantial road noise from our spot but not overwhelming and feels the price to pay for a campground so convenient to the highway.

Prices do seem a bit steep for what’s on offer.

Good 1-night stay

This was our first KOA experience and it was a great spot to stop.  We stayed one night as we were traveling cross county and this was convenient.  They have the new cabins and a very nice layout. There is not much to do close by except for the petrified forest 20+ miles away; so we decided to visit the park the day we left, I would suggest planning a 3 to 4 hour effort to drive through the park since it is a long driving self tour and you can get out and see the sites. We stayed in a full hook up, drive through, level, and the WiFi was good.  Not much road noise. They have the good ol' slide and merry go round that are had to find for kids now a days!

Easy and quiet

We got in late so the campground was quiet but what was fascinating was that when we walked out dogs to the back of the campground toward the highway there was a whole section that blocked the highway sounds completely. No idea how that was happening but we could watch the trucks coming East and west and when they were directly in front of the campground the sounds all went silent. Very cool!! Easy and level spots so hookup was a breeze! Great place to stop for a night or two.

A good Basecamp for Petrified Forest

I typically rate campgrounds as they fit into 1 of 5 categories. This campground will be rated as a Basecamp — grounds that offer a comfortable home base that you’re happy to return to after a day of exploring the surrounding area. Ratings for this category are based on: Value to cost: 3 Overall grounds: 3 Utility of sites (hookups, layout, accessibility): 3 Local Attraction Proximity: 4 Reservation Process/Ease of Getting a Site: 5 Amenities: 3 Customer Service: 4 Cleanliness: 3

We’ve come to expect about the same consistent standard for most KOA Journey Campgrounds in which we’ve stayed. Reliable hookups, level sites, minimal privacy for standard sites, limited space between sites and basic amenities. This KOA fits comfortably into this standard. Sites were pretty close together with just a few young trees between, but the grounds were only about 50% full during our visit, so it felt spacious. Our site was level and hookups were steady but a little beat-up (electric box, water spigot). WiFi was very good, only got a little spotty in the evenings. The only amenity we used was the pool, which was large and a nice temperature, but not frequently skimmed and not much on the pool deck for lounging. Great for a dip, though. The nearby playground looked like it left something to be desired, though we didn’t test that theory. There was no road noise, the grounds were silent at night.

The front office was nice enough, no complaints, and the reservation system was straightforward, as always. At $50/night on average, there wasn’t a whole lot reinforcing the cost, but proximity to Petrified Forest National Park was certainly the reason to visit. It’s about 25 minutes To the park and it’s totally worth at least a half-day visit to explore, even if you’re just passing through. There are lots of reasonably priced gas stations, rock shops and fast food options nearby, but Holbrook doesn’t offer much more. I’d say the best option for any nearby proximity to the park, stay for 2 nights if you’re able.

Decent Stop If Passing Through

Stopped here on our way out west and stayed in a cabin. The cabin was clean and well maintained. If you’re thinking about tent camping, check the weather for wind because the area is quite windy. Playground was old school and made of metal, so not ideal for kids in the heat. The pool was a nice relief from the heat and the store had lots of camping basics if you need them.

I stayed two nights here to visit the Petrified Forest. The tent sites sit packed together on the perimeter of the park overlooking the highway, which you can here all night long. This was the most expensive campsite I’ve visited on my road trip, yet they were unable to provide me with a charcoal grill and the fire ring was filled with garbage.

The facilities are clean, at least they have got that right.

Clean, friendly, and comfy

This KOA has lot's of space, from private tent sites to RV with full hookups, fully equipped cabins, even a giant Wigwam to stay at. It also has a pool, playground, small libary, and a well stocked store, everyday they cook food that you can buy instead of cooking yourself. This KOA is in the route 66 town of Holbrook, a small quiet town, with gas, groceries, and fast food all with in a mile of the campsite, the Petirfied Forest is a 30 mintue drive away and worth the trip. During this trip we took a big family group, and normally we tent camp, but we decided to stay in their biggest cabin, it was big and beautiful 3 a/c units, full small kitchen, loft full bathroom and lot's of comfy seat's, all you had to do was bring your clothes and food, everything was there for you. From the gas grill to the fully equipped kitchen, it was a super easy stay. This cabin slept 7 and had a eat in porch as well. It was a little on the pricey side at $160 a night but we felt worth it's price.Check out the video for a video tour of the cabin.

Upgraded tent sites for those windy nights

After driving some 3 hours from our last destination and exploring the Petrified Forest and Painted Desert in the harsh wind, we were exhausted upon pulling into our campsite at Holbrook Petrified Forest KOA. Seeing how windburn we were from the journey, we were offered an upgraded "super tent" site upon our arrival for only a $5.00 charge. The appeal was such that we jumped on the opportunity.

To those unfamiliar with KOA campsites, they offer a variety of options for campers from primitive camping to improved campsites for both tents and rv campers. Super tent sites include electricity and runnin water as well as private yard area for campers. At this particular site it offered a wind shield fence and private treed yard which made for a much more camp friendly experience after the long day.

We had neighbors on the other super tent site which were delightful and we greatly enjoyed conversations with them throughout the evening. The campground was filled with friendly faces! 

Perhaps one of the most exciting features for us after such a long cold journey from our previous campsite was the amenities throughout the grounds which included a cook station open to the public and heated bathroom and shower facilities. The grounds were well kept and easy to navigate by foot.

In the evenings and mornings there was a cook on duty which offered everything from hot dogs to New York strip in the evening and all you can eat pancakes or other breakfast items.

🐰🐰🐰🐰🐰

All in all we give this site a 5 of 5 Bunnies because of the cleanliness, friendliness and overall amenities.  There were no real areas of improvement we could see to make our stay better!
