Details

We stayed at J and H RV Park for two weeks at the end of June and beginning of July. We found the park to be very clean, nicely landscaped and the owners friendly. The owners are strict with their rules, but show a sense of humor – most evident from the humorous signs posted throughout the park. The park is quiet, receiving little road noise from highway US-89. The park is conveniently located near shopping in Flagstaff and to serve as a base for exploring Flagstaff and nearby attractions. The park is pet friendly and provides a fenced-in pet run.

Cost

The park is rather pricey, but more affordable for weekly or long-term rates. Daily rates are $49.50 ($48 with discounts) and $300 per week. Call for seasonal rates. This is the nicest park we are aware of in the Flagstaff area.

Amenities On-site or Nearby

The park provides laundry, showers, a mini-store with RV supplies and some grocery staples, mail and package service, pet sitting and car rental services. Fuel, food, shopping and other services are conveniently available nearby in Flagstaff.

Ratings (1-5)

Accessibility – 5/5

The campground is just off US Highway 89 for easy access. There is no signal at the campground entrance so you may have to wait awhile to make a left turn into or out of the park, depending on time of day or traffic. Drives within the park are wide and most sites are pull thru for easy maneuvering of large rigs. There are some back in sites, but these seemed to have plenty of room for maneuvering. One loop section at the back of the park with mostly back-in sites did seem rather tight. Road surfaces were gravel, site surfaces were cinder and there were a number of steps and tight areas in the facilities that might pose difficulties for handicapped access.

Facilities/Amenities – 4/5

The park provides 20/30/50 Amp electrical on 50 full-hookup sites, picnic tables, free cable TV, free Wi-Fi, laundry, showers, restrooms, TV/recreation room with morning coffee service, book exchange and camp/RV supply/gift store. The park provides mail boxes for seasonal/longer-term visitors, as well as accepting mail and package delivers for short-term visitors. The park features a fenced-in grassy pet run. The park has several patio areas – one featuring a gas fireplace and another features a barbecue and picnic area. On Sunday afternoons, the park hosts a pot luck barbecue and meet-and-greet event for all campers. The park offers pet sitting and car rental services.

Fuel, food, shopping and other services are conveniently available nearby in Flagstaff.

Site quality – 4/5

Site quality was good. Sites were level, surfaced with cinder and amply wide for the largest rigs plus room for a picnic table and to park an extra vehicle. Some sites had a concrete slab for the picnic table area. Being on a small property, the park felt somewhat cramped as there was no real separation between sites. Trees throughout the park provide shade for the sites, but also block satellite access for some sites.

Scenic Value – 3/5

The campground itself is nicely landscaped and the view from the front of the campground is nice. The scenery of note is out and about Flagstaff and the surrounding area.

Location/Isolation – 3/5

The campground is next to US Highway 89 which can be quite busy during the daytime. Still, the park grounds are set back from the highway enough that road noise is not to noticeable. The highway receives much less traffic at night so the campground is very quiet then.

Paws Friendliness – 4/5

The campground allows pets and provides a small grassy fenced-in pet run, a pet wash and grooming area, and a pet sitting service. The park grounds are somewhat small, about 4.5 acres, and may take a few laps around the park to give your pet enough exercise. The pet run itself is a great amenity we wish more campgrounds would provide. It’s nice to have somewhere safe in the campground to allow pets off-leash, even for a short time.

Overall Rating – 4/5

We very much enjoyed our stay at J and H RV Park and highly recommend the park to anyone visiting the Flagstaff area.

Additional info

Internet access

Internet access was very spotty at this campground. The campground provided free Wi-Fi, but the service tended to be very slow and had occasional outages. Likewise, we had a moderate to strong Verizon signal, yet internet access via our MiFi hotspot was also slow and spotty.

(Bonus) Water Quality

The campground water tested quite hard – we added our water softener to the water filtration stack.

(Bonus) Nearby RV Parks

During our stay, we checked out other RV parks in the area, Black Bart’s RV Park, Greer’s Pine Shadows, Woody Mountain Campground and RV Park, Kit Carson RV Park, and the Flagstaff KOA. J and H RV Park by far was the nicest park we saw in the area. Black Bart’s RV Park, Greer’s Pine Shadows Kit Carson RV Park were most suitable for large rigs, but looked a bit run down and could use some maintenance. Woody Mountain Campground and RV Park and the Flagstaff KOA had small sites, looked very tight for maneuvering and did not seem suitable for large rigs.
