2760 East Butler Avenue
Flagstaff, AZ 86004
8/30/2015, 7/26-8/9/2016

Our initial visit in 2015 was just an overnight and even though we thought it was rustic and outdated we needed a place to stay in the area while we worked at Sam’s Club and this place was not only the closest but the cheapest so we thought we would give it a try. Mistake number one.

We paid $40 for an uneven, part gravel, part dirt, part asphalt site with iffy power, high pressure water (100psi), and sewer. NO cable or WiFi available.

When we first arrived at 11:15am the check in person was on the porch and bluntly told us we could not check in until noon. We smiled and said we would just hang around until then and she came around but said she needed to take a ride around the park to see her available sites.

On her return, we suggested a site that would be convenient for us because we would be taking Maggie to work with us daily because of our bikes were malfunctioning. She immediately said she could not give us that site but picked us out a great site in the rear of the park. This site was NOT level at all and was so enclosed by trees we could not find our signal for our DirecTV, then to make it worse it was among the full timers that were mostly hoarders. There was so much trash around these trailers that it was disgusting. We called her and asked for our original site and she said she could not give us that site but offered us two others…THE FIRST ONE WAS JUNK…

The other one was not so bad since the tree would be behind us and it looked more level then the first one we opted for this one. Within the first hour the breaker popped and continued to do it several more times so we went to the office, it now being after 6pm and the desk clerk said there was no maintenance onsite but would put in an order for the morning. Hopefully by changing out our worn looking electrical plug will solve the issue because we have a full work schedule ahead of us that we cannot continue having issues like this. They did not come by until after 5pm the next day but thank goodness we had come up with another plan by then, we plugged into the other sites box and called the office to let them know not to put anybody in that site…this upset them but we explained that we would not be without power all day. He tightened up everything and the power was fine after that for the rest of our stay.

We would definitely not want to ever stay here again but from the look of things it may be the best in Flagstaff...ugh!
