We stayed here Labor Day weekend with friends who had their own site and all of us had a blast! This park excels at so many things that it made us forget about what it didn't. You can tell this used to be a KOA at one time but it was better than any AZ KOA we've stayed at. The staff here was so nice and helpful, all weekend long. They truly like kids and families, unlike other RV parks who prefer only retirees. We saw all ages here.
We had what they call a pop-up site, because that's what we travel in. We were surprised it didn't have a picnic table, it was small, and 20 amp, not 30. It turned out we loved it! It had so many trees it was very private and shaded. We had the best night's sleep here that we've ever had while camping—quiet too! It was close to the playground which our daughter loved and easy for us to keep an eye on her. All the 20 amp meant was that we turned the A/C off for a few minutes to use the microwave—no big deal.
We were given a key for the bath/shower house near our site and the lock was a little tricky but we got the hang of it. It had complimentary toiletries, but was not as well kept as the bath/showers in the clubhouse so we showered there, very clean. The pool & terraced patio area was nice & clean, which our families used several times. Saturday night the park hosted a potluck party complete with DJs and dancing. The DJs were great, played a good mix, and took requests. It was so fun! Sunday, the park had a scavenger hunt for the kids, complete with prizes. The DJs were back again at the pool which made for a fun afternoon.
Check-in and check-out was easy and quick. You can’t beat this location. Very close to town, Basha’s, Safeway, Walmart, etc. It made a great base for exploring all the area has to offer. The clubhouse had extensive info on area activities and even gave us a coupon for Tonto Natural Bridge. A quick & easy drive from our home in the valley but what a nice change in temperature for this time of year. Thank you Payson RV Campground for a great weekend, we will be back!
