Nice quiet spot by water. Cell service spotty, but usable.

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.

“Beautiful!”

Reviewed Jul 15, 2018

Stayed here in mid July 2018...except for the intermittent monsoon rains, it was quite an enjoyable experience. There are pull in and drive through paved sites with gravel pull in sites nearer the water. The restrooms are adequate and are flushable! Never used them...we have one on board. We had read previously that tents were not all... more

“Can't take it easy in Winslow Arizona...”

Got in and slept 1 night. Following morning the "host" comes over to me riding an atv during stage 3 fire restrictions (no spark arrest) making me sign in. After that I moved to a more secluded spot next to some other campers. After almost having the camp sat up host comes over and says I can't camp at that site only at an rv site. Nat... more

“Typical RV camp. Not ideal for camping— privacy”

Reviewed Apr 11, 2018

Overall Rating

Views are amazing, perfect view of sunrise & sunset, full open sky at night. There is a river running through which is definitely a plus. Bathrooms did not work, and by not working I mean there wasn’t even a trickle out of the faucet. Absolutely filthy toilets, and floors. If you’re tent camping look elsewhere, this spot was de... more

“Free, basic campground with great views”

Reviewed Apr 08, 2018

Overall Rating

Great place for a free night or two. City "park" campground. Bathrooms were locked when we were there since it was before April. It's built around a lake and you can park right down by the shore or up on a hill overlooking the area. No problem with our 32' Class A, and I'd think a larger unit would be able to negotiate the cam... more

We've stayed here numerous times both coming to SW & returning home & will continue to do so I agree w/ all of what's already been posted but would add a few items.

“Free camping, beautiful location, little noisy due to trains”

Reviewed Dec 20, 2017

Overall Rating

Perfect location if you just want to stay somewhere over night without spending money.
Stayed there end of November 2017.

Things to complain about:

  • Train noise during entire night. Trains using there horn all the time;
  • Bathrooms were already closed for the season (why?)

Little off the highway.

“Nice Level Spot Overlooking the Lake”

Reviewed Dec 14, 2017

I don't think you can ask for much more from a free spot. We were here in mid December and the night sky was fantastic. I'm a train buff, so it's just a few miles into town to watch one of the busiest mainlines in America. The town is famous because of the Eagles song, "Take it Easy", but there is a hotel here that is an incredible pie... more
