Point of Rocks Campground

This nice park is tucked right into the local granite hills – very nice!

Point of Rocks Campground

It was unseasonably cold and snowy while we were here. Our site (#53) faced a beautiful rock hill that we hiked several times

 

Noise level and overall “feel” of the park?
Little exterior road noise, no trains and no planes – a welcome
relief for us!  The section near the front office may have heard
more road noise than the area we were in.  We met several other
friendly campers during our stay.  Traffic through our section of
the park was not bad.  The office staff was helpful.  We settled
into site #53 facing a beautiful granite wall and enjoyed our
2-week stay.

Road and site access/type?
Gravel roads and sites, most were back-in or pull-in style, and
fairly easy to access.  Dust was an issue on the interior roads.
Many sites had trees and/or bushes on one or both sides which
enhanced privacy.

Sites spacious and/or level?  Comments?
There were several site sizes and lengths.  Our friends had a
large site with privacy, but we decided to take a smaller one
(#53) near the beautiful rocks and it was a bit of a tight squeeze.
Most sites that we saw were quite level.

Utilities and WiFi/cell reception?
Our boosted hotspot output was marginal, sometimes working
quite well but with periods of uselessness.  The campground WiFi
was about the same, but we survived by switching between the
two.  We had a 30-amp full hookup site, and the power and water
output were good.  Our Verizon phones worked fine.

Picnic table and/or fire pit?
Table only, there were no open fires allowed at this park.

Bathrooms/showers/laundry room?
The bathrooms and showers were dated, but clean.  We didn’t
use the showers during our stay, but I would have no problem
with them – hooks and benches for the goodies at each stall.
The laundry room consisted of 4 washers and 4 dryers of good
quality and prices were reasonable.

Pet and/or kid friendly?
This wasn’t really a kid-friendly park, although the trails
leading out to nearby Watson Lake could be enjoyed by
families.  No pool or gym equipment for kids.  Dogs were to
be kept on leash in the park, and I didn’t see any large areas
for them to run on the property.  There again, they could be
taken on the paths out of the park for a good walk.

Bicycle/walking trails nearby?
A trail out of the park led to Watson Lake and some good
hiking.  There were several hiking trails in the area within a
short drive.

Groceries & other services nearby?
Many restaurants and shops were just up the road in Prescott,
and I mean good and interesting restaurants.  We liked walking
around town and the “Whiskey Row” area to enjoy food and
drink with friends.  There were Fry’s, Safeway and Walmart
stores in close proximity to the park.  I also saw a couple of
large RV dealers in the area with parts and service facilities.

Comments:
Perhaps the dusty conditions within the park would be our
biggest complaint here.  The office personnel were helpful,
allowing us to squeeze into a smaller site near the rocks to
avoid another one subjected to more dust from the park’s
traffic.  The utilities were good, the site level, and this was
overall a nice place to spend some time.  The book and DVD
selection loaned out by the office was one of the best we’ve
seen.  Even though site spacing was fairly tight, the privacy
afforded by trees between most of them helped.  Larger site
spacing and the ability to have campfires would have gotten
a higher rating from me, but overall this was a nice place
and we would definitely come back.
