After spending a month in Las Vegas at Hitchin’ Post RV Park where we were inundated constantly by the noise of the fighter jets, the hustle and bustle of the strip, and the desert heat, we were looking for the exact opposite of all of that. Greer’s Pine Shadows gave us all of that and then some!
As we drove south-east from Las Vegas and neared the Flagstaff area, it became immediately apparent that we were going to be surrounded by some of the most gorgeous views we’ve had since we were at Lake Pleasant a few months back. Upon arriving at the front office and getting ready to check in, we immediately noticed how cool, crisp, and refreshing the air was and that the entire park was surrounded by pine trees. It felt good to be cold for a change!
The guy running the office was extremely pleasant to talk to and very helpful in explaining all of the rules of the park and even walked us back to our spot and made sure we got in ok. He even gave us a few helpful hints about our mail and how letting the park know ahead of time will always make things go smoother.
The park itself butts right up against Coconino National Forest and has its own private, gated entrance to the forest, something we took advantage of and took Lulu and Brienne to romp around. There seemed like endless miles of trails to follow.
The camp itself is incredibly peaceful and quiet. It is made up mostly of summer reservation spots and full-time residents, and they only have 10 overnight spots which fill up quickly during peak season so you’ll want to make your reservations ahead of time. The space we were in was pretty long, but not much wider than our RV due to the tree growth in the area, but we did have a picnic table at our disposal.
Greer’s Pine Shadows is absolutely a gorgeous place to set down and call home and one that we definitely will be looking towards when we come back through the area in the future!
