“Decent Stay”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 10, 2014

We don't have kids but this KOA is very kid friendly. We had space 159 - a pull through site. Strange they didn't grade entire site. Our picnic table was on severe slant do to hill not be graded level. The RV portion was level but rest of site not so much. They did not clean up all the cigarette butts from previous tenant which littered the site.. The KOA grounds seemed clean - roads are narrow and while you can pull a 40 RV with 18ft trailer through it is tight fit. Staff was very friendly. Internet is basically non-existent and with many tress getting satellite is tricky. We just used their cable for local TV (not available on all sites). Study park map - you can reserve spaces and some are very close to each other. We will return back here for sure.

Room Tip: study RV park map - some sites not so nice.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 5, 2014

We camped at KOA Flagstaff in July 2014 and left the trailer for a couple of nights when we went to a 3-day trip in the Grand Canyon.

We booked the most expensive site (back-in, full hookups, mountain view with patio, swing, etc.) which was well worth it. It was beautiful and relatively quiet apart from the barking dogs in the tent trailer next door (a definite minus). Overall, the campground feels crammed and it was tight and difficult to get into our site, but the facilities are nice and clean and there are lots of trees, which makes for a pleasant experience.

The location is very good and central, with grocery stores, restaurants nearby. Nice, long extended hours at the front desk and friendly service, and the recycling bins were greatly appreciated.

Room Tip: Worth spending a bit more money on the nice sites backing on the national forest & mountain.

Like most KOA Campground this one has a convenience store and has some camping supplies if needed.

Almost all of the camp sites recieved shade at some point during the day. The staff was friendly and helpful. The seemed to a good knowledge of camping and were helpful to several campers around me.

We stayed in the teepee for one night and really enjoyed it. It's a bit hard to get into because you have to scrunch down but inside it's very roomy! We were pleasantly surprised that there was one power cord with a lamp which came in very handy. The bathrooms at the campground are super clean and I was very impressed. Yes, it's noisy because it's right by a main road but I always travel with a sound machine for background noise anyway, so it didn't bother us at all. We got snacks at the snack bar and breakfast at the Kamp Kitchen, which is a trailer where you place and order and sit on picnic tables and eat. The food was amazing and we played games at the table while we waited. Overall a great experience and very nice camp hosts!

We stayed several days in one of the camping cabins (with electricity) and LOVED IT! It's a one-room deal with a fridge, microwave, TV and one double bed and one bunk-bed.

We were a bit concerned that it was going to get noisy as the campground filled up, but were pleasantly surprised. As soon as the sun went down, it got real quiet.

They have a "community center" with a pool table and a water-attraction and jumping castle for the kids. You can also rent some cool "Banana Bikes". Just do it! Can't explain what they are or how they work. They are fun to do at least once.

An entry to the Elden Mountain trail and "Fat Mans Loop" (on same trail) is right outside the campground (the public trailhead is about 1/4 mile away). Fat Mans Loop is pretty easy, but still gives a bit of a workout (it does start at around 6500 ft elevation).

Close enough to Flagstaff (about 3 miles East of downtown) to see the sights, but far enough away to eliminate any city noise or congestion.

The cabins do get quite warm in the afternoon (highs in Flagstaff were around 85 degrees), but as soon as the sun goes down, they are quite comfortable. A couple of nights I had to close the windows as it got a bit too cool.

The WiFi was a bit spotty. I think it has a maximum number of connections: as the place filled up it was harder to get a connection. However, when I got a connection, it worked fine.

The restrooms/showers are cleaned daily (one from 9-11am and the other from 1-3pm) and are kept VERY NICE. Being in the desert, I was concerned that there would be low water pressure or over-zealous flow-reducers in the showers. PLEASANTLY surprised to find good water pressure, nice flow and plenty of hot water.

The staff was friendly and helpful and actually seemed to enjoy working there! We got into several friendly conversations, one of which led to another hike in the area. Nothing like getting the lowdown from the locals.

We will be back!

Room Tip: Go for the camping cabins and skip the tepees (unless you have an overriding need to sleep in one...

We camped here with our 3 yr old and 20 month old for one reason-camping in a teepee. They are quite large & come with 2 circular beds with a waterproof type cover & a lamp, which sits on a nightstand made of wood and stone. You could easily get 2 air beds on the floor, which is made of pavers and lofted about 5 inches off the ground. The top and bottom portions of the tepees are open a bit, so if it rained you'd be wet. There really wasn't a bug issue, with the exception of some ants. Everyone was very friendly and accommodating-would do it all again!

My daughters cycling team stopped here to sleep before they rode to the Grand Canyon. It was clean, the spots were nice and roomy and the staff was friendly as well. It's also close to town for things like grocery's or pizza if you roll in super late like some of our team did. :)
