If you are looking for a scenic lodging option with a great location during your visit to the Grand Canyon or Sedona, you might want to consider the Flagstaff KOA Holiday.
The Flagstaff KOA Holiday campground has an assortment of overnight options ranging from camping to glamping in a cabin or tepee.
This article is written in partnership with GoRVing. All opinions are my own.
We used the Flagstaff KOA Holiday Campground as a base for our visit to the Grand Canyon National Park during our weeklong road trip to and from Las Vegas.
We stopped at the Grand Canyon on our way from Las Vegas first, just in time for sunset.
The next day we went back to the Grand Canyon to hike and explore more of the park and then continued on our road trip heading to Bryce Canyon, Utah.
What is a Park Model RV?
According to GoRVing Park Model RVs (sometimes referred to as deluxe Cabins or Cottages) are unique units that provide temporary accommodations for recreation, camping, or seasonal use.
We love to stay in Park Model RVs because it’s the best of both worlds with the amenities of a cabin and a camping vibe when we are traveling to multiple destinations.
Since Park Model RVs are designed to look and function like a home, they need to be hooked up to site electricity, sewer, and water like any RV. They may have a front porch and/or a sleeping loft. This is a great way to experience the campground lifestyle if you don’t have an RV or all the gear that goes with tent camping.
KOA calls this style of Park Model RV a “deluxe cabin” but they are known in the RV Industry as Park Model RVs.
Deluxe Cabin at the Flagstaff KOA Holiday
There are two Deluxe Cabin options to choose from. One sleeps up to 6 people and the other sleeps up to 8 people.
Our family of four stayed in the Deluxe Cabin that slept 6.
Sleeping Areas for the Deluxe Cabin at the Flagstaff KOA Holiday
You don’t have to worry about packing extra bedding because all of the linens are provided during your stay.
There is a separate bedroom with a king-sized bed. There is a pocket door that allows for extra privacy.
Off of the bedroom there is a deck with a table, seating, and a gas grill.
Upstairs in the sleeping loft there is a queen sized bed.
In the family room, there is a full-size futon/sleeper sofa if you need an additional sleeping area.
There is heat, air conditioning, and ceiling fans to help you feel comfortable inside no matter what the temperature is outside.

Full Kitchen Inside the Deluxe Cabin at the Flagstaff KOA Holiday
If you want to cook a few meals during your stay, you’ll find that the basics are covered to get you started.
The deluxe cabin has the following amenities in the full kitchen:
- Keurig Coffee maker
Full Bath with Shower Inside the Deluxe Cabin at the Flagstaff KOA Holiday
Another perk of staying in the deluxe cabin is that you have your own private bathroom with a shower. I did check the bathhouse near our cabin out of curiosity and found it to be very clean.
The bathroom is stocked with a hairdryer, towels, and toiletry items including soap, shampoo, and conditioner.
Fire Pit Area for the Deluxe Cabin
There is plenty of seating by the fire pit with comfortable Adirondack chairs for guests to use.
* It’s important to double-check if the National Forrest Service has implemented a fire ban in the Flagstaff area prior to using the fire pit.
Scenic View of the Base of the San Francisco Peaks
The Flagstaff KOA Holiday sits at the base of the beautiful San Francisco Peaks.
For packing purposes, I would include some layers. During our visit in April, it was very chilly in the morning and warmed up later in the day to the high 60’s.
The summer temperatures in Flagstaff are in the high 80’s during the day and cool down to the low 50’s at night.
