Railside RV Ranch
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 13 October 2013

We have been stopping at Railside RV Ranch for many years and will continue to do so when we travel across I-40. The staff is great, the prices are reasonable, the park is conveniently located and well laid out. BUT when we first started stopping there around 7 years ago, the breakfast consisted of coffee, juice, fresh fruit, packaged muffins and sweet rolls, breads and packaged cereals, later they added a waffle maker. Not bad for a "free" breakfast. When we stayed there recently, there was coffee, packaged cereal, hard boiled eggs and a nearly empty jug of orange juice. There was a waffle maker but no batter to make waffles with. Next time, I won't waste my time and energy walking to the office for breakfast, I'll just eat in my RV like I do everywhere else. I'm sure that skimping on their breakfast offerings is because of the economy but I'd rather they raised their rate a couple of bucks and put out a decent breakfast or just quit serving it altogether, I was very disappointed.

Railside is in a great location. Close to tourist attractions and a little bit of a trek, but is walkable to downtown Williams. Noise from I-40 was not an issue, but sometimes the train whistle knocks you out of your socks. The train doesn't run that often so that really didin't bother me either. The people are nice, the park is clean, but it is just an RV parking lot.

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.
