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.
Stayed in a kabin for the first time and we were very pleased. Restrooms were clean and well stocked, grounds were maintained with lots to do. There is plenty to do in the immediate area so get out and explore. Loved meeting Coco and Billy, the resident goats that followed the staff as they did chores. We will be back.....just no in the heat of the AZ summer.

We stayed in Cabin #1 and the A/C did not cool the cabin down. I do realize that we went in the heat of summer but the A/C should have worked in that small of space. The restrooms and shower where not the cleanest and was filled with flying bugs. The kids did have fun in the pool and the playground. The little one did enjoy the goats. No, I would not stay there again
CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:
It was a hot weekend, 104 degrees, but it defeats the purpose when the cabin door is constantly opening and closing. Air "Conditioning" under the best circumstances will only drop the ambient temperature 12 to 15 degrees provided there is enough humidity in the air to not make the unit overwork.

The staff was very helpful and friendly. The accommodations were great. I will return to this location and already recommended it.

Convenient home base for our travels in the area. Well maintained and safe. Especially appreciated the well-appointed, enclosed pet walk. The resident goats are charming! A suggestion for more efficient heating and cooling: Install a drape that can be arranged over the door to prevent air escaping through the gaps around the frame.

The place is very close to the freeway so we could hear all the traffic. The place is clean and nice, cabins are clean so are the bathrooms. Plenty of shower stalls. All of the visitors except us were RVs at the time we went in June for Father's Day. It's as hot as Phoenix.

My daughter's family and I had a wonderful stay. My 3yr old granddaughter had a blast. She made a camp-friend, they played at the play ground. We got to do panning for gold and gems. Our cabins were clean and the residences were nice and helpful. We will come back (also for the Rock Springs Pies, Yummy).

My husband and I stayed in a cabin which was great! Loved the swing. The wildlife and the animals at the campsite were great(goats, chickens). Can't wait to go back!

Perfect stay in a Kabin! The cabin was clean, comfortible, and we loved the porch swing! This KOA is outstanding when it comes to an inexpensive comfortable way to camp. A grill and picnic table is provided at each site, the campgrounds are clean and quiet. Showers, restrooms, and camp store are located near the sites. Hiking is just feet away. Beautiful place to get away.

We had a wonderful time. Clean cabin and restrooms and a great dog park for our 4 'kids'. The playground was also a big hit with our 3 year old granddaughter. Very friendly staff,

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.

Very clean, quiet, comfortable and friendly. The staff is very personable and the facilities were very nice. I stayed in the cabin for a few days and it was very comfortable and cozy.

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.

My wife and I had had fantastic time. Staff was very friendly and helpful. Facilities were clean. And a great Mexican food stand in town. We'll be back first chance we get!

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.

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.

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.

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

Restrooms were very dirty. If they were cleaned I would have been very satisfied with my stay

Stayed in a cabin with my dogs and everything was great. Manager was very friendly, everything was clean and the location was great. It was my second stay there and I'll be back.
Jul 16, 2013
We arrived KOA around 3 pm, no staff was around, the office and the store were filthy. After about 40 minutes, we checked the after hours box outside and found our envelope. We didn't see a staff member for another 30 minutes, wi fi code did not work and the grounds were no kept up

The people at this campground could be teaching customer service anywhere. Thanks for a great stay.

The stay was great, staff was helpful and educational, weather was fine. My kids enjoyed the stay, especially being able to actually see the stars and play with the pet King Snake.

When i got to the camp ground i have requested deluxe cabin an was not told on the phone that there was none.I also had my god son with me he was very disappointed that the pool was closed an was never told on the phone that it was closed either.The grass did need some trimming around the pool area an other places.Also the rv spaces were to close together an was expecting a bigger camp ground.
Mar 24, 2013
It definitely wasnt what i expected from a KOA. The playground was dangerous, it belonged in a scene from the Chainsaw Massacre. No joke i thought it was going to fall apart. The kabins are directly infront of the lodge check-in and the entrance is directly behind the kabins. No privacy what so ever. The pictures on the website must be from years ago, very deceving.

Very dirty bathrooms and unkempt grounds. Not a lot of pride shown in the property.

Handicap shower needs repair: Shower nozzle is broken, doesn't hang on wall and water dribbles out. Should be more aware of ADA. General store needs more choices ie., dairy products etc.
