      .

      This campground is DIRECTLY between route 66 and railroad tracks...route 66 being approximately 6 feet from the campground and the railroad tracks being approximately 15 feet from the campground. Though at night there are fewer cars (about one vehicle every fifteen minutes to half hour) these railroad tracks are quite busy (about one train every 7 - 10 minutes and they have to blare the horn about five minutes before they get to the campsite because there's a crossing nearby, so you'll hear both)...ALL NIGHT LONG. So between the cars and the trains you won't sleep much. Also, since the highway that the campground is near is route 66, a lot of the vehicles that drive by are big motorcycles...which are VERY LOUD. In fact a few of the campers in the site while we were there were on motorcycles (or had motorcycles to tow behind their RV's) and were driving in or out of the site very late and very early.

      Out of the two staff members we met while we were there the man who checked us in at around 6pm was quite nice and helpful but the woman who we met in the morning at around 9am was a little too passive aggressive for my taste. The campground was nearly empty (my husband and I in one site, two cabins were rented and about 4 RV's) and so we asked if it would be alright if we stayed after check out (11am)...the woman informed us that we could, she asked how late and we said around 2pm which is when she told us that 2pm was alright but that 1pm would be better (she said this twice during our conversation in a very tinny, fake voice) and that we were lucky that it was too windy for weed-wacking and mowing the grass and that the bathrooms would be closed for about an hour at some point for cleaning.

      About the weed-wacking and mowing the grass...the RV sites seemed fairly kept up, they had a tree to each site and some weeds (to which the woman called 'grass' and needed to be pulled, not mowed) but the tent sites were deplorable!! All of the sites looked as if they hadn't been weed-wacked in at least two years, the weeds (grass!) were so overgrown that they completely encompassed most of the fire pits to the point where my husband had to pull about twenty or thirty weeds just to make the fire pit usable.

      The tent sites are very, very dusty...the dirt in the sites is so fine that just walking around sends dust clouds flying in the direction of the wind about 10 feet. Expect to be covered in fine brown dust within the first hour of being there, this includes everything you bring. It was so bad that we couldn't leave the tent screen open in either the door or the window of the tent because within an hour of them being open everything in the entire tent was covered with a thick layer of brown dust.

      The entire campground smells like sewage which I'm assuming has something to do with the RV dump not being emptied regularly since the bathrooms have plumbing (not pit toilets). About the restrooms I will say that they were kept very clean. There were showers as well and all looked in good, clean condition.

      The pool that is advertised is inoperable and looks as if it has been so since route 66's heyday. I don't think that pool has been filled or used in at least the last decade.

      Oh, and beware of spiders. My husband and I were invaded by two very large spiders in our site during the night...and by large I mean LARGE. They were both about an inch or inch and a half long with bodies the size of my husbands thumb nail (and he doesn't have little girl hands). One of them we captured in a bowl and kept prisoner until we left so as not to get bitten, the other one we lost before we could capture it. On an insect note there were some very neat moths that came by our lanterns, one was as pretty as a butterfly.

      Overall it was a great little town to drive through but next time we decide to camp along route 66 it definitely won't be at this site. For almost $25.00 a night for tent camping it left a very bad taste in my mouth. I won't make that mistake again.

      This is a small campground right off the freeway. It is a convenient stop to make for the night when traveling. The campground is small and there are not many trees so you might want to get their early in hot weather. The staff was friendly. We did not see any attractions to draw you to stay nor was there any activities. As mentioned, it is an O.K. one-night stay.

      Message from Seligman / Route 66 KOA Journey

      Relax! All the sites at the Seligman/Route 66 KOA are pull thrus. From teardrop campers to big diesel pushers, this KOA can easily accommodate your rig. Come in and enjoy the nostalgia of Seligman. The town straddles the longest remaining stretch of Historic Route 66. Stop at Delgadillo's Snow Cap for a malt, just as folks did in the 1950s. In spring, cheer on hundreds of classic cars as they take off� on the popular Fun Run to Topock. Enjoy fun and easy day trips to Havasu Falls, Laughlin, the Grand Canyon, Sedona, Las Vegas and the Hoover Dam. Then come back to the campground's high desert setting to relax by the campfire and tell stories of the day's adventures. Days are warm, nights are cool, and the stars are crystal clear. There's no light pollution here!Pool: May 25 - October 1. Max pull thru: 73 feet.
