Very impressed with the park. Very clean and very nice. The park is quiet and very well run and management was very friendly. Our only complaint was with the WI-FI which was advertised but not strong enough to reach our spot. If we wanted WI-FI we needed to come to the office which was not acceptable. So we did without which was really the best thing for us. We would stay there again for sure. We camped at Distant Drums RV Resort in a Motorhome.

This is a great park, very clean and well maintained. They have some nice trees started and nice landscaping between the lots. They even rake and clean the lots before new campers park. It is a great value for the price. Two roads to Sedona; about 30 minutes on each road. Also good access to Cottonwood, Clarkdale and Jerome. We camped at Distant Drums RV Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

This is a clean, well-managed park with a friendly, helpful staff and good location. Close to the highway, but noise at night was not bad. Wi-fi was good in our rig but better in the clubhouse. Verizon reception was very weak in the park, though better in the town of Camp Verde. Great location close to many day hike options. We camped at Distant Drums RV Resort in a Travel Trailer.

Beautiful area and well kept clean park. But: -very unlevel spaces. Had difficulty placing enough blocks to even get near level. -very weak power. Couldn't run coffee pot and any other appliance together on 50 amp service. -poor cell reception -weak WiFi, didn't work at all much of the time. We camped at Distant Drums RV Resort in a Motorhome.

We stayed 3 nights to visit Sedona, Flagstaff and the Grand Canyon. Very clean. Easy to register, a guide takes you to your spot. All spaces are angled, close and back in. We plugged in our Hughes Autoformer and the ground leg was bad. The park immediately had someone replace the breaker and that didn’t work, replaced the plug and all was well. Friendly fast service! Voltage runs about 118v with the Hughes on. Water pressure was low. Trash pickup every morning. Nice pool, showers, bathrooms and laundry. No open flames is a bummer if you like to grill, but everyone is so close I can see the point. Beautiful stars at night. We would return. We camped at Distant Drums RV Resort in a Travel Trailer.

Immaculate! Very tight spaces, but big rigs will fit. Very, very NOISEY. Loud compressor runs for power washing RVs! Goes on most mornings, lasting for an hour or more. Added to highway noise, look elsewhere for peace & quiet! We camped at Distant Drums RV Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

Clean, spacious, and well maintained. Great park if you do not need reliable internet. Both WiFi and Verizon hotspot is very bad here. If you need reliable internet, then this resort is not good for you. I have no other complaints. We camped at Distant Drums RV Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

Sites were tight but well maintained. Tow vehicle has to be parked next to your passenger side which leaves very little room for sitting outside. The park is landscaped and sites are paved. Some roads are tiered which allows for seeing the beautiful sunsets. There is a small pool and an off leash dog park. Management was very friendly and helpful with places to eat and things to do. There is a company that will hand wash and wax your unit at a very reasonable price (45' for $185). We camped at Distant Drums RV Resort in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

Near the resort is the Montezuma Castle National Monument. Sedona is close by. See The Chapel of the Holy Cross for its architectural interest. . Traffic is a bear so pack your patience in the immediate area. Jerome, AZ is well worth the excursion. Visit Bobby D's BBQ, the Caduceus Wine Cellar, and Nellie Bly Kaleidoscopes (absolutely beautiful!). A drive to Prescott, AZ by way of Jerome is an adventure. Farm Provisions restaurant is excellent.

Stayed 2 weeks at this fairly large campground, which is associated with the Yavapi-Apache "Cliff Castle" Casino nearby. As result, you get $10 per person gambling vouchers per calendar month of your stay, to use at casino, which also provides a free shuttle bus to and from the campground. Wide paved streets and concrete pads, most with accompanying gravel area to park tow vehicle on. For all the paved pads though, they were not particularly level. Avoid Site 51, which is right at entrance and next to dump station, and one of harder sites to back into...lucky us. Park staff misled us, indicating dump station was rarely used, but in fact it was used daily we learned. Well maintained park, with trash pickup at site, a pool, a nice fenced dog park, nice common/social area and covered deck area (where we attended a Halloween Pot Luck dinner sponsored by park), a gym (first time we encountered that nice amenity), and a store, which was oddly lacking in RV supplies. Very nice private shower/bathrooms and laundry. WiFi signal was strong, but bandwidth was lacking, so we often lost the connection. Verizon coverage poor, but good enough for a cell signal booster to work well. Excellent cable TV. Lots of noise in various areas of park, either from interstate on one side, or the surprisingly busy entrance road...with a cattle grate, unfortunately, adding to noise. For the price though (discounted for weekly rate), I would consider staying again if in area...just not in Site 51! We camped at Distant Drums RV Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

Tips for other Campers:

Good base of operations for 3 ancient Native American ruins (Montezuma Castle, Montezuma Well, Tuzigoot), as well as several state parks, Sedona's amazing red rocks and hiking trails, and trips over to Prescott. Verde Brewing Company is tiny, out of way, but very good beers and good food, although menu is limited.

Facilities very nice. Roads are a little narrow for backing in but they guide you. Not exactly level but close. Apache Nation casino across the road and they also own the campground. Pool and hot tub very nice especially when it's 100 degrees. We camped at Distant Drums RV Resort in a Fifth Wheel.
