Cottonwoods RV Park is an excellent park all around. They are not especially fancy, but they cover the basics very nicely indeed.

- Large flat parking sites
- Great camp store
Cottonwoods is not a perfect RV Park but it is a very good one and comes at a reasonable price. It is clear they take a lot of pride in their small park and keep it in great shape. The sites are long and flat with easily accessible hookups. The grounds are well maintained. The bathrooms and showers are clean and well maintained. I simply found it to be a very pleasant place to stay.
One highlight of the park is their Camp store. They had a pretty good selection of RV supplies as well as fun antiques and other goodies. We rarely buy much at camp stores but we picked up a new states stickers map that included Canada and I was tempted by a lego RV set. I managed to resist, but if it had been a lego airstream it would have made its way into the trailer.
The only weakness of the park is that it doesn’t have a lot of shade trees and overall is more gravel and cement than grass. There is a lovely park area next to the main offices so what greenery they do have, they’ve done nice things with. The pool is not especially large but it was nice enough for cooling off on a hot day and they kept it open out of season while we were there at least.
All in all, it’s a great RV park to stay at while visiting the area and well worth the asking price. I highly recommend it.
