This park, nestled only about 1/2 mile from Prescott’s downtown area, is ideally situated to that wandering RVer who wants to explore the nearby town without driving into it with their rig or tow car. There are plenty of trees, it’s a quiet little place, and the office is an incredibly cute faux rendition of an old western mining town. The rates are cheap and the old Irish man who owns the place is very welcoming and jovial.
There ends the appeal of this park for anyone who isn’t on their deathbed. It is one of Arizona’s infamous 55+ parks, though the website will tell you differently. While the site clearly states that anyone wishing to live in the park full-time (and these are people who live in “trailers” so large they compete with most houses in more populated states) must be 55 years or more ancient, it also plainly explains that this age restriction does not apply to nightly or weekly RVers.
We were coming from another RV park just outside of town early in the morning, but had to make a quick stop at the local grocery store first. I called the office at Pine Lawn Ranch and mentioned we were coming, asking if they had space for us. We were assured that their was plenty of space and a reservation would not be necessary. So imagine my surprise when we showed up and the woman told us their was no room at the inn, so to speak.
I informed her that we called ahead only a few hours ago and were told we could get a spot for a week, to which we exchanged several long, awkward moments of silence, until finally she gave in and said we could stay. I guess a spot suddenly opened up while we were waiting. We paid the fee and were given the last overnighter spot in the park, which was literally 2 inches wider than our unit. It took us around 35 minutes to somehow wedge ourselves into the 45 degree spot between some beautiful trees. The spot itself was gorgeous, with plenty of shade from the beating Southwestern sun, and an ample little cement porch surrounded by a low stone fence, but an RV spot is pushing it. The spot is likely better suited for a camper van at best.
The owner’s wife, the dodgy woman who admitted us in the first place, so sweet of her, kindly informed us that children are not allowed to leave our spot, and certainly no bicycle riding was permitted in the park. This last bit was particularly interesting as two days later the owner’s own grandchildren were riding their bikes around the park, largely unsupervised.
The park has no bathrooms or showers, so bring your own bathtub. There is no WiFi access either.
All in all, the location is the prime benefit of this park, and if you’re older than 55 or have no children, it’s a great way to go. But if you prefer to not feel like your parents are always looking over your shoulder, you may want to try out one of the parks outside of town.
