Clean and spacious

$15 for non electric spot. I thought it was worth it because of everything that comes with it. Paved roads, large parking spots, picnic tables and grills, and fire rings. Water also at each spot.

Toilets and showers were clean and free to use (comes with camping fee). Also plus we’re they were heated and the shower got nice and hot.

Walked my dog along a 1.2 mile trail through flat brush land. Good for trail running.

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 Spot

The cleanest restrooms/showers I’ve ever seen. Cool lake. Some staff are a little bristly.

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.

Petrified Forest NP Basecamp

Stellar basecamp option off I-40 to explore Petrified Forest National Park. Online reservation was easy and cheap. Tent and RV sites reasonably spaced. Fire Ring and picnic tables at each site. Bathrooms were open with running water and flush toilets. Camped two nights while visiting Petrified Forest.

Tip: 10 min drive to Winslow for dinner and drinks at Relic Road Brewing Company🍻 🪵

Great Campground

We really loved this place. Incredibly clean and well kept sites. We stayed at Mallard 02 and it was a great spot. It’s a double spot so might be really tight if another family showed up. All sites have concrete pads and most seem to have full hookups. Beautiful trail around the lake that was great for birdwatching and walking the dogs. The trail was very easy and would be easy for the kiddos.

Nice option off I-40

This state park offers tent sites, RV with electrical/water and pull-through sites. In winter water was turned off at campsites but bathroom and showers were open. Trash and sewage dump also available. Just a couple of miles off I-40 which is both convenient and not very scenic. Great sunset though looking fish at the interstate. Homolovi archeological site to visit if you have time. Great cell reception both Verizon and AT&T

RV’s Welcome

We didn’t actually stay here because the reviews were confusing and we got into town late and needed a reliable place to stay. We ended up driving past it while leaving The Petrified Forest and saw plenty of RVs parked in the lot with signs saying RV’s could stay overnight for free. We asked one of the guys by his RV if there was an electric hookup and he said yes for 30 amps and for a 15 dollar fee which you can pay in the gift shop. The gift shop was open till five. I don’t know how it would work if you got there late and tried to hookup without paying, the lady in the shop was not very friendly. Regardless this looked like a great place to stay for free if you do not need the hookup, or if you want the hookup, get there before five and pay inside!

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!

No services, No worried

I had my reservations about going here. I thought would see the park in 20-30 minutes. We took almost three hours to drive the 25 miles through the park. Some areas are very austere, however the OTHER areas more than make up for it. The Petrified Forest is NOT a bunch of rocks laying around. (Ok there are plenty of those too) but awe inspiring views and colors that will blow you away. Please, if you are traveling Route 66 (I-40) and you are near Holbrook AZ, you will not be disappointed.
