“Love this place!!!!”
Reviewed February 10, 2014

We store our trailer there during the summers. We have done this now for two years. We have stayed in the campsites provided there and out in the woods. Love the people that work there!! They have been very nice to us from day one. We have never ate in the restaurant but our friends have and said that it was good. The ony thing I would complain about...would be the price for garbage. But that won't keep us away!!! We love the area and the lodge so much that we have thought about buying and building on property up there. So glad that our friends introduced us to this place!!!! We recommend Happy Jack to everyone that we know that camps. Some have gone and loved it.

"Kotterman", thank you so much for sharing your experience with others at Happy Jack Lodge & RV. Thanks, too, for expressing your concern about the cost of dumping your trash with us. We wish our costs for having the trash hauled off the mountain were less, too, and we do our best to keep your costs as minimal as possible. We're so glad to hear that you'll continue to come back to visit us. We look forward to seeing you soon!

Gail, thank you for your review. We're sorry we didn't meet your expectations. We're surprised that you expressed a complaint about no air conditioning in the cool pines of the Mogollon Rim! We're also surprised to hear you say "everything for kids was broken." As you can see from previous reviews here, our guests' children enjoy playing and hiking around the campground. We also have a wonderful playground that is used by our guests' children daily. We appreciate your input.

My family and I absolutely love coming to Happy Jack Lodge to get out of the "city" and heat. We have tent camped and stayed in both the suites and cabins. We love the staff and have gotten to know them during our stays. The area is a perfect place to either hang out during the day/evening or you are withina few minutes of hiking trails, reservoirs and the National Bridge. We love the fact that our kids can go play and/or hike on the campground. If you're looking for the "lap of luxury" this is not the place to come and you'd be better off at a Resort in Scottsdale but if you're looking to get away from the heat or city, this is the perfect place to enjoy the country. We've also stayed on the South side of the Rim and prefer the Happy Jack area as it is not as crowded on the weekends. Looking forward to coming up for snow play this Winter!

Room Tip: The suites have a full kitchen and a fireplace. The cabins are suited for 2 people comfortably with...

Elizabeth, thank you so much for taking the time to tell others about your great experiences at Happy Jack Lodge! Thank you, too, for explaining that we are not meant to be a "lap of luxury" resort! Every so often we get a complaint because of not being able to meet a guest's expectations because they're used to Scottsdale resorts. Our goal is to be a family-friendly, comfortable, well-kept resort where folks can kick back and get out of the heat in the summer in the cool pines of the Mogollon Rim. We're so glad you've enjoyed your stays with us, and we look forward to seeing you again soon.

The campground and ammenties are nice however there are some things that need to be addressed with costs associated to staying there. We store our RV there. If someone is already storing their RV there and wishes to camp in a dry spot in the campground, water and dump out really should be included. There are measurement issues as well with the RV storage spots; they are many feet shorter than what is specified at the time of rental. The storage spots need to be re-measured and accurately displayed.

If you are looking for a soft bed (very soft) to bed down in for a night, this place will suffice. Rooms are small, decor is, well not sure there is a word to really describes it. On the good side the rooms are clean. Try not and stub your toe on the heaters as you get in our out of bed on one side. There is a very large number of people here - mostly campers and RV's. Seems a bit crowded to me if you are trying to get away from the city. Does have a playground for the kids. I suspect this place is best suited for families who enjoy having tons of people all around. The restaraunt there is ok, basic hamburger, not real good fish and chips. Breakfast ok. The best part of this place is the clean air and the exceptional staff.

Room Tip: ask for a cabin away from the main drag through to the RV sites....

Linda, thank you for taking the time to share your experience at Happy Jack Lodge & RV and for rating our staff as "exceptional" (we think so, too!). I was a bit surprised by your title since we certainly don't advertise "luxury" accommodations. But we're glad you found the room comfortable and clean. Happy Jack Lodge & RV is like a small town with (we hope) something for everyone: RV campers, tent campers, and cabin campers, like yourself. We hope you'll come back and visit soon.

Everything about our trip to HJL was first-rate for the price and how it is promotoed. The cabin was comfortable, the setting refreshing and renewing, and the staff helpful and friendly. We definitely got our money's worth. Only complaint I have is the restaurant is only open on the weekends and the cafe down the road is not worth going to. My kids loved the horse-back riding and my son and I had a blast on our quads driving the forest roads. The pictures of the massive elk that roam the ares are awesome. The blue skies in the day, the monsoon rains that left the smell of clean pine, and oh the stars at night (no wonder there are a dozen observatories in the area). Only thing I could recommend that would make the place a five-star getaway is it needs a pool. Thanks Mercy and Terrance for the great time we had at your resort.

Room Tip: Bring your own groceries if there during the week, the kitchenettes have everything along with a ref...

My wife and I stayed at Happy Jack Lodge for three nights. The cabin was well equipped, the staff was very friendly, and the restaurant was great! All-in-all it was an enjoyable weekend at a very fair price.
