    Love this place. It looks a little bit old but the shade trees in the front area were great and there is a river trail that was pleasant and easy to walk. The area is beautiful and the price seemed fair, especially for the short distance to Sedona. The location is about 20 min from Sedona, 20 min from Jerome and 20 min from the casino, and just a few minutes from the grocery store and everything happening in old town Cottonwood.

    We stayed 3 nights at a river site and it was very quiet. Clean well kept restroom and laundry, also good wifi even at...Read More

    Don't let first impressions fool you - this is an awesome little park for the location and price can't be beat. Old reviews are out dated because showers are clean! We had at a nice river spot and people were friendly. So much to do and see!

    The last neg review was definitely accurate. I don't recommend Rio Verde for RV parking. Be careful what credit card you give them. This place does not value their paying customers. We had reservations for Sun to Sun. Office is closed on Sunday, so we were told to come to the office to pay on Monday, which I commented we wanted to pay cash anyway. They charged our Credit Card on SAT, before we even arrived. The spot we were given was TOO SMALL for our 38 ft RV. My observation is that most of the spaces are very small. A tight squeeze for most RV's...Read More

    We placed a reservation with this park approx 3 weeks prior to arrival because we were to wait before space 5 would come available. The person that helped said that we would be getting her old spot which we would "love". It was close to the bathrooms, have wi-fi, 50 amp service and a place to park two vehicles which were my criteria. My disabled husband and I packed up and traveled here with great excitement and anticipation to stay at least through the summer if not permanently in Cottonwood and this park. We drove 8 hours and when we finally...Read More

We stayed 3 nights at a river site and it was very quiet. Clean well kept restroom and laundry, also good wifi even at the back of the park away from the office. The staff at the office was friendly and helpful. They also have a tent area in a nice green meadow along the river. We may bring a tent next time but either way I definitely recommend this park and I will be back!

They charged our Credit Card on SAT, before we even arrived. The spot we were given was TOO SMALL for our 38 ft RV. My observation is that most of the spaces are very small. A tight squeeze for most RV's over 30 feet. We moved to an almost adequate size space for our RV, and informed them via email. Our back end is right up to the edge of the cliff over the river. The lawn care guy grumbled at us saying we are not supposed to be here. Then he glaring at us when he speeds by. I called the office and the staff member wanted us to move the RV, but we were already settled in. She said she would tell the other reservation for this spot that we like it better and refuse to move.?? She also says the lawn care guy is very religious and is incapable of the glaring looks I mentioned. You can count on us to NOT STAY HERE AGAIN. We'll be checking the other RV parks in the area for next week's stay!!!

We placed a reservation with this park approx 3 weeks prior to arrival because we were to wait before space 5 would come available. The person that helped said that we would be getting her old spot which we would "love". It was close to the bathrooms, have wi-fi, 50 amp service and a place to park two vehicles which were my criteria. My disabled husband and I packed up and traveled here with great excitement and anticipation to stay at least through the summer if not permanently in Cottonwood and this park. We drove 8 hours and when we finally arrived, we were told that we had been moved to a 30 amp site far away from the restrooms and next to a tenant that has what seemed to be a pit bull running around barking at me when I walked over to look at the site. He wouldn't even call his dog back until I asked him to which was my first clue, from being a work camper, that rules here are not followed when it comes to pets or at least for "certain people".

When I went into the office to ask why we were bumped I was told it was for the "good of the park" by a very rude lady that I am guessing was the owner. (The park needs more to be good than moving me) She did not care that we had driven all this way, that I had a disabled man on my hands or that it was a 30 amp spot that she wanted to move me into and wanted to argue with me that we were promised #5 by her worker. I felt like she was calling me a liar with the way she talked down to me and I was almost in tears.

Of course the only other park in Cottonwood was filled so at 4:00 the only choice we had was a river spot that she found us with 50 amp... We had to back the fifth wheel over a city block in distance to squeeze in and for that we were going to be charged extra money because it is considered a river site... Even though you would need a parachute to get to it from where we were. It is so tight in that spot that we would not have stayed if there were any other alternatives. The next day we had to find another park to move to.

Do not let the map and advertisement fool you... Be very careful if you decide to give this park a try and have a plan B. Pictures are outdated, sites are small and driveway is very narrow especially because the autos are allowed to park on the already small street. They will bump your reservation if they feel they can make more money off you and the park has the feel of permanent people that are under the impression they do not need to follow rules. Bathrooms are small and dirty. Hair hangs off walls and in drains of the showers. Try and stay anywhere but here!
