Peaceful With Great Stargazing and Quiet
Stayed in site 34. Water/electric hookups with dump station in front. Park is a dark sky park so very few lights if you get here after dark.
Great park events with monthly star parties where they open up their observatory and others come with their scopes. Also got to tour the Homolovi IV ruins as part of our camping fee.
Access to Petrified Forest, Meteor Crater, and Winslow with gas and Walmart nearby. Great stay overall.
Verizon on phones only got 1-2 Mbps down and ATT hotspot was less than 1 Mbps most of the time. Bathrooms were clean and Showers available though they did ask to keep showers to under 5 min due to water main issue. Space heater was setup in the bathroom due to cold front moving in during our stay.

This is a great park with well maintained facilities, roads and trails. Rangers are professional and welcoming, with lots of information about the park and ruins. The location is great too with a Walmart within four miles if you need something, and a great coffee hose Mojo Coffee and Expresso. Will be back!

The park is in the process of repairing the roadways. Tar is everywhere at expansion joints and cracks. And it gets on your tires that attract gravel and...
Anyway, bad timing. Not a bad park. You can hear the hum of I-40 and trains. That said, I slept well. Bathrooms are ok. Just a handful of 50a sites which gets the $30/night cost. Now if you get here during business hours you can't just find an "unoccupied" site. You'll need to go to the Visitor Center and have the Ranger assign you a space. After hours, read the sign as you enter the campground and follow the instructions.
Good distance between neighbors. To the neighbor with the bright led ropes, thanks for ruining the dark sky viewing in your direction.

Views, Stars, Peace & Quite
Wonderful place to stay. Accommodates cozy tent to homes on wheels with tow! Lots of pull throughs. Pretty, clean and roomy camp sites. Heads up... it's deliciously dark after the sun goes down, so if your unfamiliar with the campground you might want to arrive before sunset. There's only one bathroom with showers that's an easy walk for most. If you need a shorter distance there's plenty sites much closer. The bathrooms are spotless. There's not a lot of shade for the Summer camper but nothing your awning or umbrella can't fix. Lots of interesting archeology sites and trails to hike. A short drive to town for amenities. You'll get a good night's sleep here and leave a happy camper.

It was great for me and my tent. Easy to get to from 40 , only 1 mile. Clean bathrooms. Water access. Great place to stay if looking for an alternative to a hotel. Loved it.

Pulled in tonight for a one night stay. Saw a beautiful sunset and storm clouds in the distance. Over all this is a very clean park and well kept. Sites a fairly level with all amenities except sewer, but there is a dump station. Definitely hope to return for a longer stay.

Quiet Camping Between Local Attractions
This campground is just 1 mile from I40 but you would not know it! A well thought out camp; each site has an RV parking spot, plus side space for awning, slide, etc, with picnic table, grill and fire ring (when fires permitted). Some are 30amp, some are 50amp ($25/$30 respectively). The restroom/showers are clean and spacious and a dump station/potable water are supplied on site. Well located just outside Winslow (and it's corner!), and close to Meteor Crater, Petrified Forest, Hopi Ruins, etc. Good value, quiet, safe and clean!

Clean bathrooms, nice sites for tents and RVs. Hot in the day, cool at night. It was a great surprise.

Very quiet, clean. We enjoyed the walks to the ruins. Mid May so it's hot and no shade. If you can sit in the shade (awning) and there is a breeze, it's very comfortable. We went into winslow to "Stand on the Corner "

Nice wide open camp ground. You don’t feel like your neighbors are too close. Clean restrooms and showers. Didn’t get a chance to view the ruins. Next time with my wife and dogs.

Great Desert Site For Camping
The facilities were clean and well kept. The site was perfect for our trailer unit and the accommodation for all size unit was just right. Will stop there again.

Spent a couple of days, lots of park roads to bike on. And a few hiking trails too. We stayed in early October, temps not bad, clear skies. Close to Winslow too. Park also has a few pull through sites, easy to navigate. Clean facilities with showers. Could hear coyotes at night and the sound of distant trains!

Visiting the ruins is interesting but the campground was one of the worst I've ever stayed at. Crumbling asphalt uneven sites, unheated bathrooms (temp was 40°F), faucet at our site leaked. I had made reservations and prepaid for two nights. We checked in at the visitor center then as we were setting up, some grumpy old woman on a 4 wheeler drove up and demanded we stop and show her our registration. Very rude, didn't identify herself until I asked.

After a hard day of driving in the Arizona winds this park was a welcome sight. We arrived late after the office closed but didn't have any problems getting into a site. There not any shade to speak of but that made for better star gazing and let me tell you, you could see the stars! We didn't use their restrooms but they were clean.
It was close enough to Winslow AZ that we could go "stand on the corner". What fun and memories...
We went to the office when they opened the next morning and paid. We took a survey and two weeks later we got a complementary two nights at any AZ State Park. Unfortunately we never had the opportunity to use them. We would definitely stop there again!
