“Happy Jack Staff & Amenities were great!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 March 2014

Our original plan was to go camping in the middle of no where with our friends for our kids spring break. What we didn't know was it was still too cold and not "camping season". Our spot was closed off and after attempting our own camp spot one of our trailers became stuck in the mud and it was not coming out. We made our way to the lodge where they helped set us up with a spot for the other trailer and a cabin for the family with the stuck trailer. The staff was amazing to us. They even helped with some supplies to use to get the trailer out the next day. They checked on us at night to see if we needed anything and the next day when we showed up with the trailer, now out of the mud, they even cheered for us! They were so good to all of us and we highly recommend them!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Kristina, what an adventure you had! We're so glad that Kenny and Jen, our on-site managers, could help you out and make everyone a safe and comfortable place to stay. We know our staff always goes above and beyond, but it's nice to have one of our valued customers tell us that, too. We sure hope you'll come back to visit us again this season!

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.

"Kotterman", thank you so much for sharing your experience with others at Happy Jack Lodge & RV. Thanks, too, for expressing your concern about the cost of dumping your trash with us. We wish our costs for having the trash hauled off the mountain were less, too, and we do our best to keep your costs as minimal as possible. We're so glad to hear that you'll continue to come back to visit us. We look forward to seeing you soon!
