Sep 26, 2019 - Railside RV Ranch

/// September 1, 2019 A Travel Day: We departed Dolores, CO by approximately 0700 hrs. Being anxious to return to Williams, AZ we opted to skip a planned stop in Gallup NM and drive straight through to Williams, AZ. The road conditions today were mostly good, the traffic was light with the exception of a shop stretch of Hwy. 84 near Cameron, AZ. This section of hwy was also quite rough. We made a rest stop at the Cameron Trading post, had a quick bite to eat and hit the road again for the climb into Flagstaff. Entering Flagstaff the AC on...

Sep 25, 2019 - Sunset Crater

RV Airbnb? Day 21 Today is the last day we will spend exploring Route 66 before we hit the National Parks. The town of Holbrook has a museum in the historic old courthouse so we visit here first. What a gem. The museum provides information on Navajo County’s past which includes ancient pottery, Native American art displays, artefacts of Holbrook’s early pioneers and businesses, and a tour through the old county jail. The displays and objects show how life was lived from the end of the 19th Century until the late 20th. The old schoolroom...

May 21, 2019 - Canyon Gateway RV Park - (5/12 - 5/14/19)

We didn't have a place reserved in Williams, but were able to get a site here. We were in 6A. Many of the sites are back-to-back, but we were in front. It worked very well for what we needed. The park is conveniently located next to 2 gas stations, one is a truck stop. Once we got settled we drove into town. Williams is located on historic Route 66. It is a quaint little town with a number of places to eat and interesting stores. We drove through and then out of town to take a ride. We ended up riding up Bill Williams Mountain to the top...

Apr 24, 2019 - Williams, Arizona

We arrived at the Grand Canyon Railway & Hotel RV Park in Williams, Arizona around 4:00. This is a beautiful park with asphalt pads and full hook-ups including cable. They have an indoor pool and spa. We went out for dinner at Jessica's Family Restaurant. The owner was a nice man from Greece. The food was good and after dinner we walked down historic Route. 66. There are a lot of shops with so many souvenirs. On a more serious note, I noticed when we pulled into the park that there was gear oil on the front of my 5th wheel. Upon further...

We departed Homolovi State Park on the morning of October 8th heading west to Williams AZ. We arrived at the Grand Canyon Railway RV Park and got set up in our paved, back in, full hook up 50 amp site. .. The morning of the 9th was cold. There was a good hard frost on the windows of the car. We dressed for the colder temps, and brought Bentley over to doggie day care. We had scheduled to take an Inner Canyon Tour which left at 9 a.m. As it turned out, we were the only two on the tour today. and, because it was only two of us, we would be...

/// Wednesday - September 12, 2018 A Travel Day: Woke to beautiful blue skies and we took our time breaking camp and preparing for today's trip. By 9:30 A.M. we departed Show Low and took our back trail to Flagstaff and then continuing west on I-40. The road conditions were mostly okay but we did hit a few rough spots and some road construction west of Flagstaff. We also encountered a strong head wind. We have not had to deal with much wind all season. Departing Show Low I noted that the engine in the Ford F-350 was running a little rough....

Jul 25, 2018 - Arizona, Part 2

We waz robbed! Vivian and I were enjoying a quiet train ride back to Williams, Ariz., from the Grand Canyon when these bandits boarded the train and demanded our valuables. We handed over some money and they left us alone. Whew! Actually, it was part of the Grand Canyon Railway experience that took us to the Grand Canyon. Before boarding the train in Williams, the performers staged a wild west shootout. The two-hour ride to the canyon included a singing cowboy for entertainment. The ride ended at the Grand Canyon Village. How do you...

Jul 24, 2018 - Arizona, Part 1

Wind makes driving a high-profile vehicle very challenging. I remember once towing a travel trailer in Wyoming into a head wind. I couldn’t get the Suburban out of second gear. Once crossing the Delaware Memorial Bridge, we were rocked badly by the wind. Today, we ran into a thunderstorm in Winslow, Ariz. It was a massive storm we could see more than 25 miles away. Just a few miles from our gas stop exit the wind hit. It nearly blew us off the highway as I quickly slowed and struggled to keep the motor home on the road. We made it to the...

May 1, 2018 - Williams, AZ - Canyon Motel and RV Park

Our trip from Holbrook to Williams, AZ was 123 miles of I-40 with white knuckle driving almost the whole distance. We had a 20-30 MPH SW wind with 50 MPH gusts that really made it interesting with all of the trucks on the road. Our steering wheel stayed cocked about 30° with an occasional shift to 45-60° just to try and stay in our lane. We are staying at the Canyon Motel & RV Park just as you come into William, AZ. We have a 50 amp full hookup pull-through that leaves a lot to be desired, level wise. The first site was so unlevel we...

Apr 23, 2018 - Gateway to the Grand Canyon

Well folks we messed up. Booked in Williams, Arizona thinking it was a good place to spend a night after seeing the Grand Canyon. (today's the day ... can't wait) Anyway .. Now here we discover Williams is so much more .. right off historic route 66, Williams has a historic area, a brewery, nightly wild west shootouts, a train station where you can ride the steam engine train to the Grand Canyon, art galleries and so much more. We are already booked elsewhere and have move on but I sure wish we had a little extra time here to explore.

Apr 10, 2018 - Williams, Arizona

. When we went to Grand Canyon National Park a few weeks ago, we stayed right in the park. Leaving, we drove right by Williams, Arizona. That was, as we learned, a mistake, we should have stayed in Williams and taken the train into Grand Canyon. . Williams is a lot like West Yellowstone, a vibrant community geared to the tourist business, with several RV parks and motels, interesting entertainment, restaurants, and watering holes. And, a train that leaves every morning for the Canyon, returning late in the afternoon. A little pricy, but...
