Williams / Circle Pines KOA Campground
Reviewed June 25, 2008

We stayed there for Mother's Day weekend, because they had a special offer. We stayed in one of the Kabins. The campground is really beautiful- surrounded by tall pines. Facilities were good- showers and bathrooms were a short walk away. It was really cold at night, but space heaters are provided at no charge. They have a heated indoor pool (free), and some on-site activities for kids. It's a short drive into Williams, and about an hour drive to the Grand Canyon. They have a little store on-site, and rent portable grills and movies. The sites also have fire pits.

The only downsides were walking to the bathrooms (not so fun at 2 am), noisy neighbors, and the close proximity (and smell) of the dump station.

All in all, we had a great time there.

We booked this accommodation as a change from staying in motels and we were so pleased we did!

It was about an hour to the Grand Canyon, our main reason for the visit, and a very straightforward trip. We were given lots of info by the camp managers as well as discount vouchers.

Our Kamping Lodge was just right for us, everything was provided apart from bedding but the campsite were very helpful for information beforehand and so we just picked up some sleeping bags en-route.

The facilities on site are great but unfortunately when we visited there had been about 2 foot of snow so alot of the site was not accessible but I'm sure during the warmer months it would be perfect for families.

This KOA had just changed managers, and wasn't well run at the time (Dec 03/Jan 04). Our cabin smelled of animal urine. The showers were on timers, and the water never got hot at all, which was horrible during the cold winter. The mats in the shower were uncomfortable and hurt my feet. And I'm used to roughing it, so if I complain, then something is not good!
This KOA is in the prettiest area though, surrounded by tons of pines - I just hope that whatever managers are there now have gotten it together.
Trains go nearby it, so if you are a light sleeper, this might not be for you.

We are a tried and true camping family of 6. We drove from WI to AZ and decided not to bring our pop up and tried a Kamping Kabin at our first stay at a KOA. To say the least....we were ecstatic with our decision. The Kabin was perfect. The husband and wife team were very accomodating and kept the facilites spotless. It was a top notch campground...and we have seen our share of campgrounds. We were an hour from the Grand Canyon and that was ok with us. The KOA camp store had a great variety of food and was CHEAPER than the grocery store in tusayan by the canyon. Many kudos to this KOA

This campground was terrific! We stayed 3 nights and loved it. After being in Las Vegas at a concrete campground, this KOA truly had a camping aura. They have an indoor pool, great store and lots for the family to do. We took the train to the Grand Canyon as well as the tour coach and that was great too. The only thing I would have done different was to spend the night at the Grand Canyon Village to experience the sunset and sunrise. Also the mexican restaurant downtown Williams called McGillicuddys was really good and we were able to eat on the patio which was fun.
