Directions
Camp Navajo is located west of Flagstaff and east of Williams, Arizona. From I-40, use exit 185. Turn south onto Hughes Avenue, go across East Bellecamp Road, at which point Hughes Ave immediately veers left (east) toward an overpass that crosses over railroad tracks. Follow Hughes for 0.5 miles to the main gate. Immediately after passing thru the gate entrance, turn left onto Hale Drive. Follow Hale Drive east for 0.3 miles, then turn right onto an unnamed gravel road. The turn is not well signed, but is just before passing thru a large vehicle storage facility. Follow the slightly-winding gravel road for 0.2 miles where it terminates at the FamCamp.

Very convenient place for us to stop for the night on our way back to California. Easy access from I-40 and there's a Pilot station and a Camping World at the exit! George and Vicki were great hosts and really went the extra mile to accommodate us. After I emailed checking availability, Vicki told me they were full for the week. The next morning after another guest unexpectedly departed, Vicki called me and let us know she had a site for us if we were still interested. The site (#11) appeared to be long and level and we were able to back our 38' coach into our site and connect utilities without disconnecting our car trailer. Overall a great value for the money...we will be back the next time we pass through.

This may be the all-time best kept secret in the entire Military Campgrounds world. Camp hosts George and Vicki are so friendly and helpful that they received a visit and recognition from a general officer just this week. And the new garrison commander, an 0-5 who arrived in July of 2013, told us at a hosted BBQ this weekend that his intention is to expand the famcamp, which would be a great thing. Just 8 miles from Fort Tuthill, and only two exits west of Flagstaff, there is tons of room between rigs, flat ground, and a very clean laundry room and shower. The latter will need to be expanded if the park grows, but for now it's perfect. This is an ideal counterpoint to the noisy, dog-ridden crowd at Fort Tuthill. I hope they'll figure out a way to provide black water hook-up soon, though. That's my only criticism. In every other way, this is just what an RVer or tent camper could hope for....darkness at night sufficient to do stargazing, utter silence of the forested area, and yet the security of being on an Army post. There are other federal agencies conducting business here, so you have to show your ID at the small gate, but everyone has been friendly and fun. Enjoy!

As of October 9, 2013 Pine View RV Park at Camp Navajo is closed for the winter. We had a great season and look forward to re-opening the RV Park on May 1, 2014, depending upon the weather. Come see us next Spring! George & Vicki, CampHost

Third time at this park. Vickie 'n George are great hosts. Great place to stay to visit local area attractions of which there are many. Wouldn't recommend for families with children as there are no facilities for them to safely play. Landscape is rocky and wooded. Ft. Tuthill in Flagstaff would be a better choice for children. About 20 miles into town for shopping, either Flagstaff or Williams.

R.L. left this review using the Directory software: - This is a great place for one who likes a little isolation. It's quite a drive to any of the sights. Shopping about 8 miles one way. It is a great camp with a beautiful view. George and Vicki, the hosts are great. Vicki is starting morning walks around the camp to see sights like the WWII pow camp remains and the national guard training village. By our second day the gate guard was just waving at us and telling us to come through. That's how friendly it is.

We stayed here for two weeks passing time and waiting for snow to melt in Colorado. The park hosts, George and Vickie, are great. They are helpful if you need information on things to do in the area and they keep the showers/bathhouse/laundry spotless. We were able to pick up three or four TV stations (only 1 major network) on antenna with HD TV. No wi-fi in the park. Dump Station only on the way out/in. The post exchange is a semi trailer which appears to be open 6 days a week with minimal items in store: toothpaste, candy bars, soda pops, ice cream, toiletries, and a ton of shower shoes. We could hear trains several times a day but you get used to them. We saw elk, pronghorn antelope and coyotes on the base. The army plays war games sometimes, with urban warfare training close by. So, you might hear a loud boom and lots of rat-a-tat during the day but not often. I have stayed before for one night and made a decision to come back and see more of the Flagstaff area! I would give this place a 5.0 rating if it had wi-fi and TV.

The snow has melted and Pine View is open for campers. It's a great location and beautiful setting. Last year's camphost, Ed, will be here for a short time and then Vicki & George will try to fill his shoes. We love the park and can't wait to greet you. Stop by a spend a few nights with us. Hope to see both old and new friends this summer! Vicki & George

Stayed here while helping a friend with archery bull elk hunt in Unit 11M. Several of us had problems with pack rats getting into our RV sub floors during our stay here. Previous travelers had fed chipmunks and bluejays with peanuts and other food and probably helped create rodent problem. One RV couple had $1600 worth of damage by pack rat chewing on wires in their RV. Base commander and camp host did implement policy to stop feeding wildlife once these issues were brought to their attention. Due to the excessive rain received here during prolonged monsoon season the mosquitoes were also an issue until the weather got cooler. Spaces are more open than Ft. Tuthill RV campground just down the road. Some feral cats may help this campground get things back in order. Good luck!

We stayed here in August and loved it. The camp host (Ed) was there for any needed help. He has done a great job of making improvements to the park and has done a lot of hard work. Ed cooks a great burger and has everyone get together to introduce themselves. The only two things missing at this park is internet connection and sewer connections. A great place to stay and we are hoping to go back! Thanks, Ed!

We had planned on staying here 3 nights, and spent the whole week. This is a great park with a fantastic host. Ed gave us all the info we needed to get settled in. He even showed us a tour of the area. There is a POW camp here that is a interesting site to see. The RV park is in a great location with a nice view in the tall pines, but with enough open space to get satellite! There is no sewer hookup, which is one of the bad things. There is a dump station on the way in and out. The other negative would be the dust from the dirt road. People do drive slow, 5 MPH, so it is tolerable. The bathrooms and showers are spotless, as is the laundry room. Flagstaff is a short 10 mile drive. All in all this is one of the best hidden gems. Cant wait to go back!

A well kept military secret! Great location, close to Flagstaff, Sunset Volcano National Monument and Wupatki National Monument. All sites are back in, but spacious. Host was very friendly. A PX on wheels near the Main gate. Only has snacks and basic toiletry items. Understand that base is busy mid-May through Sept. with National Guard troops. Camping World just a few minutes from the Gate. Enjoyed our visit. Would stay again if in the area.

This campground is within Camp Navajo, 12 miles west of downtown Flagstaff with easy access off Interstate 40. It is located at the edge of a ponderosa pine forest about a mile from the main gate. This would ordinarily be a quiet setting but the nearby train tracks have a heavy volume of traffic. Even with a fan on for white noise, you can hear and feel the rumble of the locomotive engines. No train whistles. The sites and interior roads are gravel. The sites are spaced far apart, providing a degree of privacy. The bath house appears brand new. Each site has water, and 50, 30, and 20 amp electric connections. No sewer hookup. The dump station is located at the campground exit but the outbound lane is blocked by parked army vehicles. There is no commissary on this base and the nearest thing to an exchange is a trailer equipped with a small selection of items. This is a National Guard training base is often empty except for a small admin staff and security personnel. You need a permit from the fire department for a campfire. This permit requires you to “clear the ground down to mineral soil for a distance of 15 feet around the campfire.” You are also required to have a shovel but they waived that for me since I promised to use garden hose to extinguish my campfire. If you are satisfied with a remote location with little or no amenities and no sewer hookups, this campground is adequate. In my opinion, it is nicer than the campground at Fort Tuthill which we visited while we were here.

We arrived at Pine View after we left Fort Tuthill in the rain. Fort Tuthill's hotel clerk actually recommended Pine View. We planned on staying 4 days but ended up staying almost two weeks. The Camp Hosts are just outstanding, Steve and Audrey will bend over backward to ensure you stay is the best it can be and they are very knowledgeable of the local area. There are no sewer connections but there is a dump station (it would get all 5's if they had full hookups). Plenty of space between sites so you will not be crowded regardless of the site. The bathrooms and laundry were the cleanest we have seen in over 3 years of fulltiming (military, national parks and commercial campgrounds). You do have fire rings and wood is laying all over due to a tornado a few years ago (one of the few military campgrounds that you can enjoy an evening fire). Our Verizon card worked great as did our dish tv. Steve and Audrey are continually upgrading the facilities, with a self help gazebo with a new propane BBQ. They brought in an ice bag storage unit so they could offer bags of ice for about $2.00. They also brought in mountain bikes to rent. The warm days and cool nights, plus the attractions in the Flagstaff area warranted our longer than planned stay, plus Grand Canyon was only 50 miles away. We stayed here in a 36 foot motor home.

L.L. left this review using the Directory software: Very nice park. I was surprised to find 50 amp electricity I expected only 30 amp. Camp host was very helpful. Campground clean and well kept. The altitude of the FAMCAMP (7119) sometimes makes breathing difficult at times. Over all this is good place to stay when visiting the area.

6 July 11

L.L. left this review using the Directory software: Very nice park. I was surprised to find 50 amp electricity I expected only 30 amp. Camp host was very helpful. Campground clean and well kept. The altitude of the FAMCAMP (7119) sometimes makes breathing difficult at times. Over all this is good place to stay when visiting the area.

Stayed about 10 days over the 4th of July 2011. When we entered a civilian security officer glanced around inside our coach and wished us a nice stay. Security? well I was only asked to show my driver license to gain access. Security personnel were friendly and professional. Camp hosts were great and In fact all the campers were really friendly. There was a review that said "Beer not allowed on base" which is not correct. We were invited to the club on base and had a wonderful potluck on the 4th of July. The depot is still cleaning up in some areas from the tornado last year and making improvements to the camp ground. Lots of room between camp sites. Great place to use as a base from which to visit the Flagstaff area.

Very easy to get to from I-40 and a good spot to explore the Flagstaff and Sedona area. When entering the gate stay to the right where they let the large trucks in. We found the barriers tight going in and out with just the truck with dullies. The guards let us us the truck entrance and exit the whole time we were here. As a previous poster said they do take security very serious and did take a quick look inside of our rig. Nothing was asked about beer or alcohol but the guard did say that no weapons are allowed on base and there is no storage facility for them so be aware of that. Very quite park that is has very clean facilities. The dump station is close by and easy to use. The camp host, Steve & Audrey do a great job and have a lot of info on the area. We enjoyed our stay here and hope to be back next year.

This is a great place to stay, easy off I-40 and easy to get to the camp site. The hosts, Steve & Audrey really go above and beyond the call of duty to make this place enjoyable. The first day we were there Steve came by and invited us to the Navajo Gourd Dance on Sunday. The dance was held at the old Indian Village on base and was really nice. We were very impressed with the ceremony and were also invited to eat with them. The Indian "Fry Bread" was great! The temperature here was low 40's at night and 70's during the day with one night going down to 32 degrees! Winds were quite strong at times. The Grand Canyon is easy to visit from here, only a little over an hour away. The only drawback is no sewer if you are going to stay for more than a few days. The bathrooms are spotless as well as the laundry room. Great water pressure and heat was on when needed. The poster below mentioned no beer allowed on base....not true.

We call ahead about six hours out and were told there was plenty of space available. When we arrived we were told to just pick a suitable spot and set up by the camp host (Steve). He said he would be around later to check us in. When Steve came by his attitude fostered a very friendly and cordial atmosphere. He was very informative and helpful and from the look of the camp he appears to really care about every aspect of the camp and the visitors there. I asked about the best BBQ in the area and he directed me to Big John's Texas BBQ, it was as good if not better than a BBQ we had at one of the top 50 BBQs in Texas just a week before. The base takes security very seriously, they look inside your rig and check all IDs, (note: no beer allowed on base). When entering the gate you must pull all the way to the right side to get through and for inspection. When leaving with your rig you go out a side fence area about a hundred yards from the gate. The roads to the Famcamp are a little rough but it looks like the roads are being worked on. The base is close enough to Flagstaff to be convenient without having to be in the traffic. While we were there it snowed both days and was in the 30s so we didn't get to do much out. The sites are gravel, long enough for fifth wheel and truck and plenty of space between sites. Hookups are 30/50 amp and water, there is a dump site as you leave the camp. Bathrooms were spotless as was the laundry room, (free Laundry); the cleanliness is a direct reflection on the camp host. Everything about the Famcamp shows that it is taken care of. I would recommend this camp to anyone travelling through the area. We will definitely stop here again if going this way.
