Campground Review - Distant Drums RV Park

We found a nice little RV Park called Distant Drums in Camp Verde, Arizona, not far from the Sedona area. We found out that sometimes clean and tidy gets in the way of functional and convenient!

Nearby attractions - 7 - Very close to Montezuma Castle and Sedona. Flagstaff less than an hour away.

Staff - 7 - Very nice at first, but if you want to take a shower late or get your laundry out of the dryer at 8 pm, you might hear a sweet but unmistakable rebuke.

Natural surroundings - 8 - Great mountains all around. Interstate very close by.

Value - 9 - We paid $18 a night for three nights.

Bathrooms - 8 - What to say about the bathrooms. They were immaculate. Here's the catch though. You have to ask for a key, because they clean every time someone uses them. That way they know when to clean them. This means you can only take showers during office hours. The office was supposed to close at nine, so I got there at 8:10 and the lady said she guessed I could take one, but it would be hard on "the guy." My wife got the third degree about how many were going to use the shower when she went as well. Personally I felt like a third grader asking his school marm if he could go to the potty.

Roominess - 9 - Plenty of parking room and a picnic table at each site..

Facility fun - 8 - Heated pool and hot tub. Exercise room but no playground.

Cleanliness - 10 - This is the cleanest park I've seen yet.

Facility usefulness - 9 - Nice laundry facilities, swapping library, wifi was very good. They sell propane, small store, we had a back-in site since we were Passport America, but they have lots of pull throughs.

Overall - 8 - This is a very well kept park. They even sweep the small rocks every morning in between the sites. Just be careful of the bathroom key nazis.
