Something not right?

Description

A parking lot that you could pull into for the night. Just north of the train tracks. Train runs all night, but we could sleep through the noise, train doesn't blow its horn nearby.

The "parking lot" has 2 entries. One was blocked, but the other was open. Was staying there for 1h, but the rumbling/bass of the train(s) made me move on. It's like sleeping above a discotheque.
Just make sure not to block the fence!
I also couldn't find any "No Trespassing" nor "No (overnight) parking"

Report Check-In

Everything is blocked/closed and doesn’t appear to be open for RVs anymore.

Report Check-In

To start off, we are in a pop-up truck camper to give reference. As for the noise of the road and trains... People drive this road all night, so we heard them pass every time. It sounds like there must be many cracks in the road because the sound is uneven and louder than a good road would be. The trains make crashing, high-pitched squeels, and rumbling sounds all night. One crash sound even woke up my dog, which rarely happens. The rubbles we could also feel and not just hear. If you have a well insulated rig and some good ear protection (if you are sensitive to noise), then it probably won't be too bad. I was super thankful they didn't also blow their horns when coming through.

Report Check-In

Quiet, but for occasional clatter of train cars.

I see that someone else came by today and didn't stay due to the fair taking up the marked lot. I have decided to park at the very visitor center. there are no signs prohibiting overnight parking so I hope this works out.. if not there is another dirt lot to the right of the fair set up. this is a great location and I'm sure there isn't always a fair going on. only a few blocks from the famous standing on the corner.

Looks like it would be a good spot, but a carnival was taking place and filled up the entire lot.

Report Check-In

Lots of flat, level space. It's between the road and railroad, but still nice and quiet. No train horn, so that was a help. Walking distance to the "Standin on a Corner" park and some good food/ice cream places. It was a great one-night stop.

Report Check-In

Nice easy spot, and very flat. We stayed in the southwest corner of the visitors center paved lot in a Class C. A truck with travel trailer stayed in the gravel lot of the west. No hassles. Trains can be loud, but did not bother us. Good park behind visitors center to walk the dog. Due to high winds, we stayed a 2nd night as well, although bailed during the day to avoid overstaying our welcome.
Great cell service (Visible/ Verizon)

Report Check-In

Great place to stop for a night. Cops seen patrolling the area. Safe. Near trains, but seemed like white noise.

Report Check-In

Just a gravel parking lot, pretty leveled. Just beside track so a little bit noisy but were able to sleep anyway.

Report Check-In

Lot is huge—half paved, half flat gravel/dirt. The night we stayed, there were 4 rigs (2 camper vans, 1 large toy hauler, and our 32’ motorhome) with room left for 4x as many. I personally WAS bothered by the train noises, but it was fine enough for a free overnight stay. No one bothered us, and there was plenty of law enforcement making rounds around town so felt safe.

This was a great place, with lots of room, next to the visitor’s center. There are several, very active, train tracks, on the far side of the parking lot. The trains ran all night but with no whistles. I still slept well even with all the train activity.

park for the night, no issues
train right next to you but nothing crazy

Very convenient place to park for the night on the way to Flagstaff and the Grand Canyon. Large paved lot, no problem fitting our 22-foot Class B. There’s a fair amount of noise from the railroad. There is a dumpster.

Report Check-In

This is a nice little spot. Train yard right next to you but they didn’t bother me. Take a walk down the road after you park to the historic downtown and see all the “standing on the corner” kitch. Quiet spot, no one bothered me and was able to spread out a little and not feel rushed.

Very nice and welcoming! Very flat gravel.
Just have to get use to the train, and there is A LOT of them.
Visitors center mapped us out a nice walking trail to the
Famous Winslow corner. Saturday mornings there is nice farmers market
And craft set up, just behind the visitors center. We picked up a souvenir stepping stone, made by a local.

Nice spot to park, beautifully developed. One other camper was there in the dirt lot. We parked right on the paved lot. Nice and flat. Good cell coverage AT&T. Someone came by at 2AM to put their trash in the dumpster, a cat circled the van once, people came by to sit at the lovely tables in front of the center and the trains ran all night. LOUD, unless you love trains. Enjoyed Standing On The Corner kitch in the morning.

Big safe lot right next to the visitor center. There are trains that go by but I slept just fine. This place is perfect for big rigs because there is a lot of space. There were two other RV's here that spent the night with no problems.
