“Sweet spot in the middle of the desert”

Reviewed Jun 12, 2019

Overall Rating

This is a cool find in the middle of the Arizona desert. It’s got:

A paved road all the way there
Picnic area
Level, lettered, clean camp spots
Charcoal grills
Trash cans
A designated swim area
Bathrooms (a lil scary but overall clean; watch out for the glory holes! Yikes! Hahahaha!)

Only bummer was all the bugs.

“Great free camping ”

Reviewed Jun 07, 2019

Overall Rating

The good: We just needed a place to land for the night, and this campground worked wonderfully. Each site has a grill and a picnic table, and it overlooks a lake. Free is always good. The bad: There’s no shade and the bathrooms aren’t good (more grimy than filthy, stained toilets, stalls that don’t lock), so that’s be a considerat... more

“Great Boondocking”

Reviewed May 20, 2019

Overall Rating

At our arrival around 5pm on a Sunday- it was quite full. There were open spots along the inside of the water front, however some motor homes & other vehicles/campers parked so you couldn’t get another truck & trailer in to the open spots. They did not look to be sites for bigger set ups . We parked down in the open lot down by the b... more

“Great view of water - Level with table and firepit - easy access to water for kayaking”

Reviewed May 03, 2019

We loved our stay at MCHOOD. Close to town and grocery stores, loved kayaking with easy access to water from our campsite. Good Verizon service but we still used our weboost. Our only concern ,which has nothing to do with the park, was the amount of overnight tent campers and car campers that leave their trash behind on the ground espe... more

“Great free County Park”

Reviewed Apr 07, 2019

Overall Rating

This was a very nice county park. We stayed in a site right on the water, but there were pull through and back in spots also available. The campground had many openings mid-week, but did fill up on the weekend. We are self-contained so we did not use the restroom facilities. It was a great place to stay to see Winslow, the Me... more

Perfect free area with picnic tables, fire rings, and grills. Bathrooms were closed and will open when the weather gets warmer. I loved being right in Winslow. A great little pit stop on our way out West.

Great views, easy access for any size RV or fifth wheel, some pull throughs, arrive mid afternoon for bigger sites. Great friendly host. Better than the campsite we paid big bucks for the following night.
