“one of the best”
Reviewed 24 February 2014

only spent one night at the rv park with a friend who was there for a week;. so this a limited review. professional staff with clean; great amenities in the cool pines. Access to lakes and the national forest couldn't be better. My experience was so great that I'm going to look into a seasonal site for summer of '14.

Huckey22, how great to hear that staying at Happy Jack Lodge & RV for only one night convinced you to become part of our community! That's fantastic. We've built several new full hook-up sites during the off-season, and our dry camping area has been expanded. We hope you'll get your seasonal reservation in soon ... our official "season" opens May 1! Looking forward to seeing you soon.

We will be staying here for the third year to escape the weekend Phoenix heat all summer. The area is lovely, the weather very comfortable, and the community feeling is abundant. We have made good friends here and share dinner every Saturday evening. Once I arrive, I feel like I am on vacation. The team who runs the place are wonderful. I even rent the cabins for at least three different weekends for family. There is so much to do in the area. And, my hotspot works great so I can teach my online college courses.

Vicki, isn't it great to leave the city over the weekend and come back on Monday feeling as if you've been on vacation? We love that about Happy Jack Lodge & RV! Thanks for mentioning our cabins! We think your family and friends who come up this summer will be delighted to see that we've done some serious "sprucing up" during the off-season. We're glad the Verizon tower on our property helps you get your work done, but we hope that you're able to take some time off to rejuvenate when you're with us, as well! :) See you soon!

My husband and I made our first trip in new rv to Happy Jack. Coming from south of Phoenix where the temps were 110+, it was wonderful! Our campsite was clean and easy to pull through and access to the woods right behind us for walking was very nice. We didn't use the Lodge facilities but the people on the desk were very pleasant.
If you are looking for city amenities or nearby shopping, this is not the place for you. But if you want a quiet, peaceful and cool respite, it is great!

Lucy, thank you so much for your comments about your time at Happy Jack Lodge & RV. You're right! "If you are looking for city amenities or nearby shopping, this is not the place for you." Happy Jack Lodge is meant to be a place to get away from city living and recharging. It looks like this summer is going to be hotter sooner in Phoenix, so we sure hope you'll consider visiting us again soon. Take care.

We store our trailer there during the summers. We have done this now for two years. We have stayed in the campsites provided there and out in the woods. Love the people that work there!! They have been very nice to us from day one. We have never ate in the restaurant but our friends have and said that it was good. The ony thing I would complain about...would be the price for garbage. But that won't keep us away!!! We love the area and the lodge so much that we have thought about buying and building on property up there. So glad that our friends introduced us to this place!!!! We recommend Happy Jack to everyone that we know that camps. Some have gone and loved it.

Gail, thank you for your review. We're sorry we didn't meet your expectations. We're surprised that you expressed a complaint about no air conditioning in the cool pines of the Mogollon Rim! We're also surprised to hear you say "everything for kids was broken." As you can see from previous reviews here, our guests' children enjoy playing and hiking around the campground. We also have a wonderful playground that is used by our guests' children daily. We appreciate your input.

My family and I absolutely love coming to Happy Jack Lodge to get out of the "city" and heat. We have tent camped and stayed in both the suites and cabins. We love the staff and have gotten to know them during our stays. The area is a perfect place to either hang out during the day/evening or you are withina few minutes of hiking trails, reservoirs and the National Bridge. We love the fact that our kids can go play and/or hike on the campground. If you're looking for the "lap of luxury" this is not the place to come and you'd be better off at a Resort in Scottsdale but if you're looking to get away from the heat or city, this is the perfect place to enjoy the country. We've also stayed on the South side of the Rim and prefer the Happy Jack area as it is not as crowded on the weekends. Looking forward to coming up for snow play this Winter!

Room Tip: The suites have a full kitchen and a fireplace. The cabins are suited for 2 people comfortably with...

Elizabeth, thank you so much for taking the time to tell others about your great experiences at Happy Jack Lodge! Thank you, too, for explaining that we are not meant to be a "lap of luxury" resort! Every so often we get a complaint because of not being able to meet a guest's expectations because they're used to Scottsdale resorts. Our goal is to be a family-friendly, comfortable, well-kept resort where folks can kick back and get out of the heat in the summer in the cool pines of the Mogollon Rim. We're so glad you've enjoyed your stays with us, and we look forward to seeing you again soon.
