We had a wonderful stay at Canyon Vista Campground. It's remarkably close to the city, Flagstaff, but tucked away in the forest, it feels remote. We went in June 2019, and it wasn't crowded at all. The hosts were absolutely wonderful. They came by and checked that we had everything we needed and offered us water. They gave us a general idea of the campground. They had installed little motion sensor lights in the bathroom, so you don't have to fumble with phones or flashlights to use the loo. They have a box of reading materials, books, maps, etc. like a little free library set up. They had 5 wonderful dogs, all leashed, controlled and super friendly and adorable. A few are trained therapy dogs, just wonderful sweet, quiet dogs. It was so

Average campsite near a highway, the real draw to this place is the incredible climbing access nearby.

Agree with Ryan's review! Epic RV spots, and still decent for tent camping. The camp host was awesome. Ideally, I would go back when there are less mosquitos, just remember to bring bug spray!

I imagine this is a prime spot for RVers, but pretty average for tent campers. Close to town, which can be good or bad. Right off a main highway, so you hear a ton of traffic during the day. Add to that airplanes flying in low. Take away all the noise and this place would be great. Lots of trees. Some chipmunks were playing right out side my tent when I woke up. Best part is the camp host. The guy obviously takes pride in his work. My site, which I had no reservation for, was freshly raked upon arrival. I noticed him making his rounds to everything on his to-do list. Very nice guy. Would definitely recommend if the background noise isn't an issue for you. Really a beautiful place.
