“high desert campground”
Let Holbrook/Petrified Forest KOA be your base camp to explore all the surrounding National Parks and Monuments. Easy access to I-40 gets you to the Painted Desert and Petrified Forest National Park (20 minutes). Take a day trip to the Grand Canyon (2.5 hours), Canyon de Chelly (1.5+ hours), Monument Valley (2.5+ hours), or Fort Apache (1.5 hours). Walk around the rim of Meteor Crater, less than an hour west. Or stop at the Hubbell Trading Post (a National Historic Site) on the Navajo Reservation. In Holbrook, drive through town on the original Route 66 (don't miss the Wigwam Motel). Check out the museum of Historic Route 66 and The Hashknife Outfit – one of the west's largest cattle ranches. Back at the campground, relax, enjoy a stunning sunset, and shop for silver and turquoise jewelry in our store. Then plan your next day's adventures. Pool: May 4 - September 29. Max pull thru: 100 feet.
This place was okay to stop for the night. However it is very overpriced and lacks amenities to go with the high price. Wi-Fi signal was so weak it was unusable. Pool was not well kept. Spot was so so. It was level which was nice. The dog parks were useless. Having gravel as the base just results in them being too hot to be used. Next trip across we will skip this spot.
Wasn’t sure what to say about this park. It does look like they are trying to make some improvements. The site wasn’t level, and there were some issues. Awful dog park, and it was pitch black at night. Dead trees should be taken down. A mixed bag to be sure.
Great scenery with lots of attractions near by. Staff is very nice and hospitable. Campground is kept clean and is very scenic. We enjoyed our walks in the late afternoon and evening. We visited the South Rim of Grand Canyon, petrified forest, and the meteor crater. Great campsite with plenty of room.
Excellent place to stay. Arrived after hours and they made it easy to find our site. Thanks ! Toby and Ollie loved the dog park.
This is the worst KOA I’ve ever stayed at. We were placed at the farthest tent camping spot. The nearest bathrooms were closed, the dishwashing station didn’t function, everything is falling apart, there are spaces that need some love with the tables and grass.
If you’re passing through with an RV, then this place will due but if you are tent camping don’t stop here.
Nice Quiet campground. Lots of single night pass throughs from people going east and west on the I40. Large Gravel spots easily accommodate 50+ feet. Solid 50 amp power, got about 60psi out of the fresh water lines. There is a good size pool, and play area for
The kids. Oreillys auto parts 5 min down the street but it seems pretty picked through if your looking for something specific. Lots of good fuel stations. Couple of spray and wash for tow vehicles (nothing for the big RVs). Everything is about 45 min away. (Meteor Crater, Winslow AZ, Petrified Forest) we saw everything in 2 days with time to spare. I would stop here again for either a single night or couple days to burn.
Small crowed sites, bathroom drains were full of hair. Looked like they weren’t being cleaned much, opted not to shower at all during my stay
Very clean facility. Our site was ready when we got there. In the winter they close a bathroom, of course the one closest to our spot. The other bathroom was heated and was very welcome as it got down to 23 degrees overnight
Amazing place. We got the cabin with the bathroom inside and a room with bunk beds. The main room has a beautiful large queen a kitchen and table and a full bathroo. It is everything that you could dream of in a log cabin.
Great cabins for the non-camper types... we stayed in one of the well-appointed cabins which was perfect for us. We had simple kitchen amenities, comfortable beds and a clean bathroom. The picnic table on the porch was perfect for meals. We are not accustomed to campgrounds that accommodate big RV's so the gravel surroundings were a bit bleak to us. The staff made up for that by being friendly and offering great food suggestions. It was a great alternative-stay on a long road trip and the location was perfectly situated between Grand Canyon and Carlsbad Caverns, two must-do's for any roadtripper.
