“We liked it. Nuff said.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 2, 2014

First, this campground doesn't have activities or a playground for children. Good luck finding one that does in the Prescott area. No pool either. The laundry closes at 7pm and doesn't open until 8am. That's the negatives.

The campground is nestled in the Granite Dells area north of Prescott so the campsites are shoe-horned in around the beautiful granite formations. It is adjacent to Watson Lake park and you can walk right from your campsite to the miles of trails that circle the lake. Native Gambrel quail frequent the campground and are quite beautiful. Scrub oak, pinon pines, cedar, and cacti are everywhere. If you are visiting in May bring a camera and photograph the many cactus flowers.

Downtown shopping, Whiskey Row, and Sharlot Hall Museum are just a few miles away as is Enterprise car rentals.

Room Tip: Ask for space 46 if you want WIFI in your RV otherwise you will need to sit on the covered porch out...

Loved Point of Rocks campground. Management was nice as well as professional. Beautiful area with plenty of activities available, yet close enough to great dining and entertainment. We already have reservations to return in May! Only downside was really poor water pressure.

3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 9, 2014 via mobile

We have rv'd here about three times. It is a quiet place. We try to get a site against the rocks.. Plenty of shade and border shrubs and trees for privacy. The staff is friendly. It is a fine place to relax. We also like to stay here because it is close to any of Prescott's attractions. Dog friendly. The only drawback --- there are a couple of long time residents' motor homes that should be hauled away.

We stayed here in the early 80's in a VW van and remembered how pretty it was so we decided to go back on our drive through Prescott. We were lucky to get a site as it was the week the Federal Government closed down and all the National Parks/Camps were closed so everyone was looking for an available campsite. The man in the office is the son of the original owner/developer of the campground and he was very kind and helpful. The place was packed but still very quiet. During our walk with the dogs a camper offered them hamburger patties which was quite the treat. Today there are more sites and they have electric hookups. Depending on how close you are to the office, you can also get free internet. If you are too far away you can sit in the office or outside at the tables and access the internet. The grounds were very well maintained. The restrooms were not modern but absolutely spotless. It is a very unique campground with all the red rock formations and one of the prettiest we've been to. We would definitely stay here again.

We stayed @ Point of Rocks in December 2013 and found the resort clean and friendly. Stayed over a weekend for 3 days and paid 28.88 per night with full hook-ups minus cable.

We had excellent ATT wireless phone service. The front office was pleasant and the rest rooms were spotless!

Large pull through and 50 amp service was available. Near by hiking and rock climbing.

Highly recommend

This is a unique, old style campground. Park was very quiet, clean, included scenic trails, and is conveniently located near the heart of Prescott. Some of the trails take you to Watson Lake and Willow Lake. It’s a small drive to the historic Prescott's Whiskey Row, where many shops and restaurants are available. Our site was surrounded by trees, rocks, and bushes. Roads and sites are unpaved, just dirt. Park includes both back-in and pull-through sites. The staff was very friendly. As always, we travel to other campgrounds when visiting a new location. We determined this was the best campground in the area.

We camped here on a three day weekend in our new Airstream. Good hookups. Plenty of hiking opportunities in and around the beautiful lake.
There's no pavement so things can get pretty dusty, but most residents are considerate and drive slowly.
We paid $28 a night with Good Sam membership. Not a bad deal.
