“Why stay anywhere else”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 September 2013

We have stayed in many RV parks in our travels across America and while this is not the most luxurious park it is the most family/pet/group friendly park I have ever stayed in. The owners Pat and Tamara treat everyone like family. The complimentary breakfast consists of waffles and hard boilded eggs and cereal with coffee and juice. While there is only one table in the office area there are several tables on the porch. We were able to purchase tickets for the railroad trip to the grand canyon at the office and they provided a free shuttle to the depot. If someone missed the train on the return trip, they would drive up to the canyon and pick them up. (How do you spell customer service?). We had a pet emergency about midnight and when I went to the office and woke up Tamara to ask for help, she provided the 24 hour emergency number of the vet in Flagstaff.

The site are mostly level with a gravel base. Only the sites on the east side of the park have tables but we used the community room which has tables, TV, computer and heat. During prime season they show movies and have a covered area setup tables for large groups. Don't forget the excellent fire pit with free fire wood.

We stayed here with our four small children in our RV along with our friends. they went out of their way to make sure that we could park our RVs next to each other! that was just the beginning of the kindness and care shown while we were there. I have never met a more outgoing and customer oriented owners of an RV park in my life and we have stayed at lots of places. no request was too big or too small they were always asking us what they could do to make our stay better!!! 5 stars does not do this place justice!!! Thanks for treating us with such care!!! Can't wait to go back!!!

This is our 2nd stay at Railside RV Ranch, I would not stay any where else but here! The lots are long enough and flat. That's nice for large Rigs. Easy in and out of park. But that is not the best part, They are very Friendly, do anything for you to make your stay the best it can be. They have a continental Breakfast every morning from 8 to 10. And such clean Bathrooms. The club house is large enough for groups. They even set up a tea time for some of the golfers in our group. Close to a lot of attractions (Grand canyon, Bearizona Wildlife park, just to name a couple) you can take a train ride to the grand canyon if you like. Go stay, you will not be sorry.

We started coming here for a weekend or two each summer. Then we decided to park the RV here for 3 months every summer. Great mix of seasonal regulars and travelers passing through the area. Sits along side the train tracks of the Grand Canyon Railway, which gives it unique charm. The owners take great pride in their facilities and are always seeking to improve guest experiences. Bathrooms & laundry are clean. Owners live on premises. Occasional group cook-off, ice cream social s, and movie nights. Staff provide free transportation to & from the Grand Canyon Railway station as well as other spots in town.

This was our very first RV experience and this park was great. The facilities were spotless. Somebody gave a low rating saying it is just a big parking lot. The trailer part is a gravel lot, but there is a great community area with tables, a fire pit, a stage for impromptu kids performances, a playground. Amazing waffles in the morning. The people running it were lovely and very nice and helpful. If everywhere we stay is as good as this, we'll have a great trip.

If you are stopping at Williams then this is perfect. In fact this was the best RV park we stayed in on our Route 66 trip. The husband and wife staff were perfect hosts and we felt quite at home. Well done to you both and good luck for thee future.

This RV park is a bare parking lot at the side of the train tracks and interstate. I'm not really sure why everyone was raving about it - strange. The owners are really nice, it's true, and very helpful with directions, recommendations or a ride into town. The noise from the freeway and the train was constant, but you got used to it. We didn't hear any trains blowing their horns while we were there, which was a relief. The continental breakfast was a waffle and a boiled egg, which was great, although there was no where to sit, so we eventually got tired of standing in their shop and asked if we could carry though a table from outside. Definitely not the best RV park we stayed in, but ok for one night!
