“Needs more TLC”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed April 19, 2014

We stay in this RV park twice a year as we pass thru northern AZ. In an old review I said it's OK for a brief stopover & that's still the case because it's cheaper than others in the area & the location is very convenient for running into town. I commend the owners for finally re-doing the (formerly disgusting) bathrooms. They're still small but they look & feel WAY better. The park itself is still pretty much a wreck: old, crappy-looking electric boxes; uneven dirt / gravel sites, many with holes in them; litter blowing all around. When we stayed recently we unhooked our water for the nite because it got just below freezing; in the morning when we went to hook our hose up the standpipe was frozen solid. Really? Non-insulated standpipes in a place like Flag? Unfortunately, many of the long-term & permanent rigs / sites are in bad shape with lots of detritis lying around, giving the place an ugly, shanty town atmosphere. Still... we stay here for the convenience & the price (which should actually be lower since they have no cable, wifi etc, which are pretty much standard in RV parks now).

Plus was $32/night vs $44 at 'other' packs [Not a typo] in the area. Place needs TLC; high pressure water, pleasant smiling receptionist did warn us at check-in. Noisy, close to I-40 (that's a + or - depending on your perspective) and o'nite truck parking; I'm sure they regularly tell us pull-thru overnighters to take 2 spots as we'd not have fit otherwise (40' + 12' toad..sites are end-end); gravel and most unlevel but we made it work, concrete pads are cracked; signs unpainted, ['other RV' we passed from Hwy 89 North didn't look enough better to add $10]

Some long-termers around perimeters of park - I didn't notice 'large dogs' mentioned in another review.

Steakhouse is OK, entertainment a nice surprise; food pricey, not great, just OK. They regularly serve tour-busses so restaurant reviews on this site are probably mostly one-time visits to the place. I look for reviews from locals to 'really' compare.

Too, we prefer campgrounds [Forest, COE or BLM] to 'RV Parks' hence my terminology "Pack ...as in 'pack you in like a sardine.' Bonita CG was our choice but we didn't know where a dumpstation was located to 'fill-er up.'

Room Tip: Sure wish tripadvisor would get another tab fspecifically for RV parks. My other 'go-to site...

Nothing particularly bad, or great for that matter. Got in after the office closed and made it to our assigned spot. It had rained and there was a pretty big hole filled with water in our spot, but we made it work. the spot was really big, but I might have been inadvertently been taking up two spots. Nobody said anything, so that's the way I used it. Lots of grass as well. The location is nice, right off of I-40.

Not the most ideal place for camping, but it was just fine for an overnighter. Try the steakhouse for sure... It's kind of expensive, but worth every penny. Again- Not a place where you want to hang out and enjoy nature, just a place to spend the night if on the road.

We stayed here mostly for the steak house and saloon which is great! traveling with three teenaged sons on way to Grand Canyon we had read the reviews of this RV park and I would have to say they're all correct. Site is very pretty but permanent park dwellers are trashy. Other bright spot is park employee, Jennifer, who was wonderful!

Room Tip: Don't know if there is a particular good spot in the park. We were traveling in a 34-foot RV an...

This place is absolutely the WORST campground we've ever experienced!!! This is not a mobile home park- It is an rv park. After not being able to hook up at our assigned spot, we drove thru the park to find most of the sites were occupied by people living in run-down, very old trailors. Many residents had dogs penned up next to their trailers & the one we were supposed to park next to, had a pit bull and a small dog penned up. There's no grass. it was deplorable. I do have to say that the young woman who checked us in and then issued us our refund was charming and very pleasant, even when we asked for our refund.

Convenient location off I-40 with large sites, many of which are shaded by large pines. We camped over Fathers Day weekend and were able to use 2 sites so we did not have to unhook our tow vehicle. The facilities are very basic - restrooms, showers, laundry. Camp store is limited. Staff was very friendly. Beware that amperage is ONLY 20/50 so you must use a converter is you have a 30 amp vehicle then use the 20 amp plugin. Since A/C is rarely needed, this is not a problem. Water pressure is 100 psi so be sure to have a pressure regulator. Wifi is available, but we used our own mifi instead for speed.

The biggest con is the truck stop next door where semis leave engines running all night. Try to get an acceptable site away from the entrance. Also, the train runs nearby, but that sound is ubiquitous in the Flagstaff area.

I understand the steakhouse can be fun, but we did not take advantage of the offered discount.

Bottom line - good for a stop over or if you don't plan to intend hanging out at your site.

Room Tip: Ask for site away from truck noie.
