Campground Reviews

Jack and Susan were amazing! From our phone call reservation from the road to checking in everything was a breeze. We had a lovely stay and even extended our stay by a night because we felt so relaxed. Thanks for adding great chapter to our trip!

The place is messy, especially around the pool area. The goats and chickens can be fun, but it attracts flies, etc. We have stayed here three times and this will probably be the last. We located a nicer place in Black Canyon City.

Great place to stay. Price a little high for location.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Our pricing is determined by looking at our direct (most similar) competition within a 15 mile radius offering similar amenities. With our numerous discount programs we fall below their pricing. It's apples and oranges. You may be able to find better pricing, but it comes down to a trade off.

Needs more up-keep. More personal is needed. There was a fair turnover in 3 days time. That indicates it could be more successful with some greater general care. Some long term sites were unkempt and quite unattractive. Bath facility nice but not properly maintained. Sites need attention. Small and tight and disrepair in some.

Ty, your stay was at the end of the snowbird season and my work kampers are on their way to their next assignments. That's business. Now the summer starts and we can work on sites that have been vacated by snowbirds. 1971 we opened, no one conceived a 4 slide rig, but they were built wide.:)

Tall cactus, cute cabins, and delicious pie at a nearby restaurant!

Bathrooms could have been cleaner

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Bathrooms are cleaned once a day, checked at the beginning of the day, at the end of the day and periodically when the staff uses them. Traffic and individual's "habits" are always a problem. If I could have specifics like "toilet paper left on floor" or "tooth paste left in sink" that would help.

Just not enough to do in the area to justify more than one night. Campground ok Nice folks

To Be Fair I Need To Say The Staff Is Very Friendly and Helpful, However The Park Itself Is The Worst My Husband And I Have Ever Stayed In, Filth And Trash In The Sites Including Broken Glass, Old Bottle Caps, Cigarette Butts Etc. The Entire Park Is Littered With Junk Everyehere. The Owner Also Keeps A King Snake In The Office In A Small Aquarium, Not Sure That's Even Legal. We Left 3 Days Early.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

The customer has been here 3 times in the last 3 years. No mention of this was made to either myself or the office. I sense that there is a lot of stress here, noting the capitalization of every individual word. The Kingsnake is native to the park & has been here for 9 years and is a teaching tool.

Only neg was too near the freeway. Noise was terrible.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Customer was on Site 57, roughly 1400 plus feet from the main entrance of the Campground. Possibly a light sleeper because we usually don't get complaints of this nature.

Nice natural site. When we asked about staying an additional day at our site we we're wanted to pay for our electricity use! The man was very insisting that we did not know which site we were in!!?? We also purchased propane, which was very expensive, and he did not close the valve completely. Stated this and was told that I was wrong ...I was right and he finally gave me a tool to tighten it.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Customer stayed 8 nights, plus an additional one. I have no idea what the reference to the electric is - that is included in the site fees. Propane was expensive this time of year. I was the only one with supply for 15 mi each way. Charged cost plus 40% std markup.

I was very unhappy with my stay. First I did't like walking through goat poop to go to the office or the pool. The owner walked them around and would never clean up after them. I believe dog owners are required too. The shower has water standing behind the handicap toilet and is rarely cleaned up. If this is any way the other KOA's are like I don't see us staying at any other KOA in the future.

Facility location, sites and bathrooms were clean, easy access ad wonderful staff. We will be happy to stay there again and recommend this location to others.

The park was rustic but comfortable. Host we're very friendly. The goats were pretty cool. Great access to BCT! We will stay here again next year.

The quail and birds were awesome. Having goats right beside the pet park did NOT work for our dog. All she wanted to do was bark at the goats :(.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

That's okay the goats don't mind. I hope your dog was amused.:)

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

I have no idea, no negative comments listed, can't fix it if I don't know what is broken.

The office staff was very friendly and helpful. The staff also sponsored a potluck for the park which was great fun. The pool opened in March and was very clean and delightful. A great monthly stay for Snow Birds from Colorado!

We enjoyed this campground; hosts were nice, as were most of the other guests. Cabins were clean and comfortable. Only downside was typical problems with toilets getting messed by some rude guests - not sure how you can avoid that in any campground.
