“Juniper trees and flat”

Reviewed Sep 22, 2018

Overall Rating

It was easy access to this area. Took Welch Road exit off of I 40. When we arrived there were lots of campers. We took the road to the right, right after you cross the cattleguard. Had a large level Camp Ground with lots of juniper trees. Was well shaded. There were other campers all around us but not too close. Beautiful skies and su... more

“Loved it!”

Reviewed Jul 14, 2018

Overall Rating

We really enjoyed our Welch Road site. We have a 34 ft diesel pusher with toad. It’s the monsoon season at the moment and it rained every day starting around 1pm to about 3pm. The road in has smaller than usual ruts, but it’s not too bad...just went around them. Except for another Motorhome, we pretty much had the place to ourselves. E... more

“Peaceful and Private ”

Reviewed Apr 01, 2018

Overall Rating

Don't get discouraged if you have to drive in a couple of miles. Our site was actually a loop and sat high on a knoll. We could just see Hwy. 40 traffic although we didn't hear it.

“Roadside rest on the way to Grand Canyon”

Reviewed Jan 02, 2018

Overall Rating

Pulled in at night. Had the whole area to ourselves. Didn’t hear the freeway all night. About 8 o’clock a maintenance vehicle drove by. Stayed in the winter and ran the generator alll night to power our ceramic heater. Easy freeway access.

“Simple and Convenient I-40 Dry Camping”

Reviewed Nov 29, 2017

Overall Rating

About 30 miles west of Flagstaff, Arizona, a bit past Williams on I-40 is the Welch Road Free Camping Area. I stopped there and saved some money. Yes, I am a cheapskate. This campsite was conveniently located just off the highway. Check out my video if you want to see an overview of this camping venue https://youtu.be/VQ0MgFRKpQs

“Great spot for passing through.”

Reviewed Nov 17, 2017

Overall Rating

This is a great little camping spot, right off Interstate 40, that is just far enough from the highway for some peace and privacy, but not too far for getting and getting out. Easy for big rigs to pull in and out, and turn around. There is a large section of land, just off the exit, and behind some trees that you can camp overnight... more

“Great place to stay, just outside of Williams, AZ!”

Reviewed May 08, 2017

Overall Rating

Large grassy area with scattered trees. Very easy access for all RV types 14 ft tall and under. There are several camping spots clearly marked with fire rings farther in, but they don't want any motor vehicles that far in any longer. We were very nicely asked to park closer to the entrance the next time we stop here again. There was a... more
