We used our Passport America membership (if get a $44 membership, please insert our referral # C-711961), scoring an RV site at the Kaibab Paiute Tribal Campground, with full hookups for 50% off, at a total of $12.50 a night! We stayed here 6 nights and think they would have let us stay even longer at that price since the park wasn’t full. Each RV Park that takes Passport America has different rules for when and how many nights they can be used, so be sure to read the notes on each park.
The Kaibab Paiute Campground was a little off the beaten path on the Kaibab Paiute Indian Reservation just outside of Fredonia, Arizona. We liked the campground because it was very quiet, the sites were pretty roomy, and it was a great price. It was also located right next to a walking trail that led to a gas station down the road that had a good restaurant there as well.
Management at this site was very nice, and though there was no pool, we asked if the kids could run through the sprinkler on a hot day, and they nicely said yes. The lounge has been recently remodeled and was very nice with a ping pong table, big screen TV, games, the nicest showers we have seen at a campground yet, and bathrooms. The RV Park wasn’t nearly full enough, and the Kaibab Paiute Tribe owns this land, so we think you should go!
The Pipe Springs National Monument was located right across the street from this campground and there was more in this monument than it looked like from the outside. There was a nice museum inside that explained the history of the Paiute Native Americans, and the Mormon settlers who made their home on this land. There were also gardens and animals at this site. There was a fort that the Mormons had built and used here as well, and we attended a Ranger led tour of the fort that they conduct every hour. We also hiked on a nice hiking loop that was just beyond the fort area. It was an educational experience visiting this National Monument, and the kids got Jr. Ranger badges here as well.
We didn’t get a chance to travel the hour and a half south to the North Rim of the Grand Canyon like we had planned to, but we heard from a few other people that they loved it! The town of Kanab was 30 minutes from this location, Hurricane was 45 minutes from here, and Zion National Park was an hour north of this park. If you don’t mind driving, it is a great quiet, and affordable place to park and explore the Northern Arizona and Southern Utah areas.
