On I-17, 25 miles north of Phoenix: Take exit 242 (rock Springs/Black Canyon City) and turn east. directly ahead is a sign: Frontage road. Follow Frontage road; KOA entrance is 1/2 mile on right. Avoid exit 244.
Very friendly staff and nice conditions except for the women's bathroom. There was a sign "no hair dying in shower" that must explain why the shower floor looked a filthy brown color. Aside from that it was a very enjoyable stay.

Been a KOA, I was expecting better for the price I paid. Concerning the up keeping of the ground there were no maintenance of landscaping surrounding each site & they were not level which create problem to level our unit. We travelled with friends who had their motorhome.

Our family found this KOA to be a great base camping for multiple day trips. It's not fancy, but it's clean and it's safe. We weren't bothered by the wandering goat - Billy, our kids really enjoyed feeding him. If you don't like animals, just shoo him away. He only sticks around if you have Doritos or peanuts. LOL. We'll stay at this KOA again in the near future.

This campground has been around a long time. It has that distinguished older look and feel. We enjoyed a quiet night off the highway and the landscape and birds provided a delightful scene and sounds to wake to.

Overnight. Hosts were excellent and helpful as I had an oversize unit. The whole campground including showers etc was very clean

Campground is not kept up, full of weeds, unfinished projects, small space, hard to get into, sign posts laying on angles, dirty bathrooms. The hosts are great and try very hard to make stay pleasant, but after staying here for 6 years with hope of things getting better and only getting worse will not stay here again.Great people but poor KOA.
CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:
Internet order, picked the cheapest site, between Christmas and new years. Never talked to owner never asked for an upgrade and considering it was December and we are in drought there were no weeds. We didn't start having weed problems until late January. M Booth and F Prichard have pictures.

This is a great campground. The staff was friendly and very helpful. The cabin and restrooms were clean. My dog also enjoyed her stay with the fenced pet area so she could be off her leash. The goats were cute and came over to say hi when they went on their evening walk.

I have used this KOA numerous times and always have been satisfied. The owner has often gone out of his way to assist us even after hours. It is clean and convenient.

Nice friendly people and campground. Liked the goats.
Nov 12, 2013
Apparently there is a goat-keeper on site. A goat urinated near me while I was taking photographs. Then the goat left feces on the porch before I had moved all my things in. Never again. Employee on duty was cordial but not a true professional in appearance. Men's bath poorly maintained. .1 star

Jack at the reception desk is Mr. Hospitality, he assists his customers with top notch customer service! Single women traveling will feel very safe at this KOA. Great security.

Probably worst KOA that we have stayed in. No maint. has been done on weed control and new gravel is needed. Bathrooms are in bad shape as no deep cleaning has been done in a long time. Walls and showers are dirty. Around swimming pool the chairs are dirty and worn and weeds are around pool patio. KOA should be doing an inspection of this property as this is going to give KOA a bad name.

Great facilities and location with additional plus of beautiful hiking area right next door.

I arrived after dark and left very early, but the cabin was very clean, management very pleasant, and I wish I had had more time to spend there.
Oct 23, 2013
The owner/manager, Jack, is wonderful and always accommodating. He has been very helpful with questions regarding our hot water heater that we had issues with. We would highly recommend this KOA to everyone.

One person running the camp, not too smart

My stay at the black canyon city Koa was awesome! Jack was helpful and accommodating. Jack went out of his way to make my stay comfortable and enjoyable. And interesting! Jack has incredibly adorable and friendly pet goats. You can purchase small bags of peanuts in Jacks store and feed the goats! Jack is an animal lover of both domestic and wild . Next visit I will hike black canyon!

The cabin was clean but everything else was dirty and filthy.The bathrooms were a disgrace,the showers and sinks were never cleaned the whole weekend we were there.One bathroom was out of toilet paper from the time we arrived til the time we left.There was junk,wood and tools everywhere.The office was a mess with papers and garbage all over the desk as well as the floor.Goat droppings on sidewalks

The owner, very nice and helpful. The bathrooms a little smelly! Overall good experience. Little pricey, $50 per day.

We arrived late and left early, but our stay was everything we expected from KOA.

Checked in very late and left very early. it was easy to locate our site registration information. Clean site and everything worked. Will come again.

Convenient location outside Phoenix. Needs a little bit more care and attention.
