This very clean, paved RV park is in the closest town on I-40 to the Grand Canyon, which is about an hour drive away. There is a tourist train to the Canyon that travels 2.5 hours one way by train right from the park, and a cowboy show before the train departs every morning.

The pool, playground, and dog run are very nice. A pet resort is also on the property for pet boarding during a Grand Canyon visit. The Wi-Fi is free, but not always dependable. At the Passport America price, we would stay here again.
