Seeing the Grand Canyon with my very own eyes has been a goal of mine for quite some time. I reached that goal with our road trip this October. My little famlia loaded up our car and hit the road from San Antonio to Arizona.
If you’re trying to do the math, that is just over 17 hours of driving. We broke it up into two days and arrived at the Grand Canyon/Williams KOA Campgrounds just after 7p.m. on our second day of driving. When you set out to visit one of the most popular national parks, it’s important to have a full good night’s rest. We got that at our Grand Canyon/Williams KOA Deluxe Cabin.
My family has admitted to me that our KOA cabin may have changed our camping game forever. It was the perfect indoor accommodations for our outdoor adventures.
Cozines for All at the Grand Canyon KOA
I am more than happy to sleep in a sleeping bag in a tent when we go camping. My husband, on the other hand, prefers a bed. Part of what makes KOA awesome is that families have choices – a deluxe cabin, camping cabin, glamping tent, RV sites, and tent sites. We chose the deluxe cabin with a patio and a full tub and shower.
The deluxe cabin was so cozy and had everthing we needed to be comfortable. We had a king bed in one bedroom, bunk beds in the second bedroom, and a queen size bed in the loft. In addition, the sofa pulled out in to a bed in the living room. There was plenty of room for everyone. We had one full bath; a patio deck, a BBQ gril, two large flat screen tvs, and a kitchen. There was enough space for each person to feel comfortable to take a nap, watch tv, play a game, or just relax.
Plus, the temperature changed so quickly in the few days that we were there. From frozen mornings to warm afternoons. Our cabin kept us warm and comfy. Dad had plenty of rest which was great because he was the driver-in-charge. The boys had so much fun running up and down those stairs but still got a sold night’s sleep which they needed for all the hiking I made them do in the Grand Canyon.
The Kitchen in a KOA Deluxe Cabin
That kitchen had a stove, microwave, refridgerator, sink, dishwahing machine, and even a coffee maker. It was stocked with cookware, cooking utensils, plates, bowls, drinking glasses coffee cups. and eating utensils. I’m sure they had more forks in that drawer than we do at home.
We were able to cook dinner after our long day at the Grand Canyon National Park. That’s a major bonus when you drove hours to get there and only ate fast-food and snacks for two days. We were so looking forward to making our own food. If we were there during the warmer months, we would have taken advantage of the grill outside. We also had a warm breakfast before we had to check out. That beats fast food any day.
The Grand Canyon/Williams KOA Campgrounds
Did we have regrets choosing this location? Yes. We only stayed two nights. Knowing what I know now, I would defintiely spend more time at htis KOA Campground or ones similar to it. There are more amenities and activities to enjoy outside the cabin, too. A few that are available at Grand Canyon/Williams KOA are:
- Dog Park
- Outdoor Pool
- Coffee Lounge
- Rec Room and Pool Table
- Bike Rental
Enjoy Northern Arizona Outdoor Beauty at the Grand Canyon KOA
Taking in nature’s beauty has become one of our family’s favorite past times. Arizona did not disappoint. There are beautiful views in every direction. As a family, as with any group of poeple, it’s important that everyone feel comfortable before and after your outdoor adventure. If you don’t feel like you can rest, eat well, and relax, the outdoors just isn’t as enjoyable. We were able to do all of this at Grand Canyon/Williams KOA.
Queridos, how do you rest up so that you can enjoy your outdoor family adventures?!
