“Perfect Stop Along I-40 Between Arizona and New Mexico”
Reviewed 10 March 2014

During our trip across the southwest in our 38' class A motorhome, we needed a stop between Page and Santa Fe, and the Holbrook/Petrified Forest KOA fit the bill perfectly. This KOA isn't fancy, but the staff was very pleasant, the gravel sites were big and level, and it had very easy access to I-40.

I also have to say that the food wasn't bad at all. We had just finished a long day's drive and didn't really feel like going out, so we tried the steak that they cook up right there at the KOA. It wasn't filet mignon, but it was pretty darn good and very reasonably priced. It was also fun to try the "petrified toast," which I'll leave as a surprise for when you get there.

We'll be passing through the Southwest again at some point, and I plan to stay here a second time when we do so we can check out the nearby Petrified Forest, which we didn't have a chance to see this go around.

We only stopped here 1 night but the staff were friendly. Right on Route 66. Easy access from main street & I-40.

The spaces are easy to find, Long enough to leave your car hooked up, Narrow though, not enough room to open out awning. Full hook-ups. Excellent Tengo Internet WiFi 1st day FREE.

The Cowboy dinner was not bad and well worth the small price of $6 for a burger, $15 NY steaks were huge, good value. A great way to meet other RV'ers and the staff at the park.

We traveled in our 36ft Motor-Home. Full hook-up.

Room Tip: Easy access to I-40, main street. Narrow spaces.

Site was spacefull, nice pool. Would come again. There was a cookout location on the premises with dinner and breakfeast. We tried the all you can eat pancakes (2,99 USD incl. coffee). Eggs or sausages were reasonable. Restrooms were clean in good old KOA standard. Free Wifi.

A few cabins, but mostly RV hookups. Not exactly in a scenic area, but there's a pool and playground and basketball court! Clean bathrooms and showers. AC in the cabins. Beds were comfortable. Picnic tables and a nice porch swing to sit on, but no other chairs. Grill to cook, but no campfire.

Room Tip: Wouldn't try camping in a tent here! It's all gravel! Get the cabin.

Close to (but not too close) the I40, this is a large cinder / gravel KOA which provides what it is supposed to do at a reasonable price. Washing / drying costs $3.50, wifi is free and the signal is strong but sometimes it is so slow as to be unusable, toilets / showers are clean, cable has more channels than is sensible, there is a cinder based play area for children and pitches are not too close together. Check-in was welcoming with useful travel information provided (and generally the staff were very helpful whilst we here here)and we were left to find our pitch (which was not hard). No pitches seem to have any useful shade. The only substantial grass is the area for tents. For the price we paid, we were very content with what we received and in fact we came back for a second night even though there are a number of other RV camps in the area, some of which being slightly cheaper.

We had reservations at another campground in Holbrook and were horrified at the condition when we arrived so left and looked for a better place. We found it at the Petrified Forest KOA. It is very clean, nice laundry and shower rooms. They serve dinner and breakfast on the premises if you do not want to cook. This campground is convenient to the Petrified Forest and Painted Desert. If you are camping in this area, this is the place to stay.

I rated this KOA as average. It is nice and what you expect from a basic KOA but nothing special. The staff is friendly, the bathrooms are clean, but the landscape could use a bit more green. It is very barren in the RV and cabin area.
