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.
We reserved a cabin on Saturday, 08/08 for an overnight stay. Cabin wasn't ready at our arrival; it was hot, dirty and with spiders. The Manager was not friendly. We ended up coming back home around 8 pm after we killed a couple of spiders and called Manager. The site is not maintained; the pool is dirty, bathrooms with strong odors; 4 feral cats around the pool, one of them came out of the spa.

Bathrooms and pool were not clean. Poop on outside of toilets. A LOT of ants in cabin. If this had been our first KOA, we would not go back.

We stayed in a cabin which was good and clean. The only fault at the site is that it would need new sanitary fittings - but they would also need more efficient cleaning! Otherwise a nice place and friendly people.

Cabin was filthy with dog hair. Commodes had feces on them. Pool filter was not cleaning pool. A/C was woefully inadequate for 105 degree temperature environment. Owner was grumpy and did not seem to care. Campground should be removed from your listings as it does not merit your "President's" award.

This koa Was neglicted. Installation has potential.

Bathrooms were hot and dirty with dead bugs all over. The grounds were very poorly kept and the pool was full of bugs and debris. Our cabin had an ant infestation we didn't discover until it was too late, in the morning. The only thing really nice, was the guy and his goats.

When we arrived all seemed fine. The cabin was cute and there were just a few bugs. However, once night fell, the bugs absolutely INVADED! They were everywhere! We couldn't stay but packed up as quickly as we could and left. I am not exxagerating when I saw there were tens of thousands of small flying bugs that invaded the cabin after dark!

Campgrounds are in disarray and unkept. Washrooms are not clean and full of bugs to the point of being unusable. Very disappointed.

Nice but hot

We stayed 5 nights in a Kamping Kabin at Black Canyon City, and enjoyed our stay. The cabin was decorated with nice paintings, etc., an unusual touch. It seemed the owner was the only worker there, and was a little short-handed. We hope he can get some good help if he needs it!

The host was so welcoming. Our cabin was clean. The pool area was not very inviting. There were abandoned looking motor homes on the rim of the property. A very beat up looking mobile home was within 50 ft of our cabin with a old washer or dryer turned on its side in front.

The manger had no help,was doing every thing by his self. Said his employee went back to Canada.

Really enjoyed our stay! The cabins were perfect for what we needed and the restrooms were very clean! And most importantly HOT showers! Thank you! We will be staying at other locations for sure
May 06, 2015
overall, would return. however, a/c in cabin was not working properly and restrooms needed cleaning.
May 04, 2015
I stayed in a cabin and discovered I hate having to get dressed to go to the bathroom.
May 03, 2015
The cabin and grounds were very nice. The one suggestion I would have is to fix the toilets.
Apr 26, 2015
The campground had a nice open layout with impressive cactus landscaping. It was well lit so that using the restrooms at night was easy and secure. The cabin had pillows and linens on all the beds as well as a tv, coffee maker and coffee and a wall mounted reading light. It was air conditioned and had a heater. The camp host was helpful and friendly. There were games, DVDs, books and puzzles

we only stayed one night, but thought the cabins were very clean and maintained properly. Not a whole lot for kids to do.

Place was beautiful. Pool nice. Cabin needed a fridge. Hours of the office could have been earlier and later.

it is always fun to come there at Black Canyon city. We are always treated very well by the camp caretakers, Spaces are always clean and well groomed. And the amenities are fantastic. Thanks for doing such a good job.

pool not heated, area around pool never swept, sandy and with pebbles. So you have dirty feet before entering pool or hottub. workers very friendly.

Feb 05, 2015
Check in was short and sweet. We were met by the staff, including the owner, who explained everything we asked. They were nice, professional and enjoyed their jobs. The campground was clean, quiet and had everything we needed..
Feb 03, 2015
The cabin was very clean, linens provided were really good. Kind of small but overall ok for a short weekend. Office hours were short.

Cabins were clean and nice, bathrooms, pool and hot tub needed a lot of cleaning and repairs
Sep 04, 2014
We only stayed 1 night as we relocated across country with pets. It worked well for us.
Aug 11, 2014
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.
Aug 11, 2014
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.
Jul 20, 2014
The staff was very helpful and friendly. The accommodations were great. I will return to this location and already recommended it.
Jun 30, 2014
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!
May 23, 2014
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.
