Stayed here for visit to Quartzsite show. Huge pull-thru site but paid only for premium (T13). Met a group from Reddings and had a great visit. A few minutes from Quartzsite but worth it. Large site and roads. Cafe was so-so but okay. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We stayed here in July, when the park was close to empty because of the extreme summer temperatures. We had a full hookup with electric, water, and sewer. The swimming pool is beautiful. The park is extremely well-maintained and quiet. The restrooms were spotless. I would definitely stay here again. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
We were here for 2 weeks and had a weekly rate $230. Very clean and well kept RV Park. Wi-Fi could have been better, but not a big concern. Verizon strong. Restaurant on site was very good for a change of pace from cooking at the rig. As others have said, pet friendly with easy access to the desert and BLM land for off leash times. If/when you need to shop for groceries, the closest place is Quartzsite about 11 miles West. We would stay here again if in the area, but 2 weeks was a little long. But it was over Christmas and New Years. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This is a very nice park to spend a few months in during the winter months. The lots (we were in a back in) are huge. Although there is no grass to be seen, the park is very well kept. The park is dog friendly and has easy access to the desert for off leash play. We do not use the showers but the rest of the faculties are well kept and clean. Verizon phone and Internet service works well so have not tried the park's Wi-Fi. Access to BLM ground is just out one of the several gates along the back for ATV riding. Two different desert golf courses, a landing strip for remote control airplanes, swimming pool and a pool table will keep you as busy as you want to be. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Pass by this park if quality wi-fi is important to you. They offer Tengo but it is useless. They take your money and give totally unreliable wi-fi. Surrounding parks have same and more amenities and have much better wi-fi. According to park residents, the poor wi-fi has been a problem for years, but the owner and the managers don't appear to have priority for solving the problem. An expensive split rail fence is being installed while we camped here, and residents and guests suffer from poor wi-fi. Like some other Tengo and outsourced wi-fi supplied parks I've visited, management blames the wi-fi supplier and supplier blames your pc or an inadequate number of park antennas. The park's recreation center is also small and an old trailer is parked next to it as an annex. If a large rec center with nice kitchen facilities is important to your group, I recommend you pass this park. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is our third stay here. We stay here for the RV Show in Quartzsite. They run shuttles back and forth to town. Unlike most parks this one seems to be improving with age. Friendly and helpful staff. Nice Cafe adjacent to park. Lots of activities. Pool and spa are well maintained. We will stay here again. We were here two weeks and enjoyed it very much. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is a very nice stop - especially if you like desert activities such as ATV, hiking, biking, etc. There are gates right out the back of the park to a series of trails and routes around the local hills, etc. A lot of (the nice type) of full-timers around and everyone has ATVs. There are some neat areas to travel to all around, and a desert golf course in back - even a mini airport for Radio Controlled planes. The pool and area is well maintained. Generally friendly feel. Bathrooms weren't "spotless" but definitely at the upper end of the scale. On the downside... Yes, the Wi-Fi is sub-par. Seems like they are trying hard but there are just too many big metal signal reflectors (RVs) since the park is popular. Basically, don't bet on the Wi-Fi. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
The rate shown is the weekly rate. We love this park. The people and staff are very friendly. The sites are very large and can accommodate your RV and all your "toys". We do like to ATV so enjoy the fact that we can ride right out of the park. The cafe is good, but closes the first week of March. The local grocery is sufficient. Gas is in Quartzsite. I only rated it down 1 is that it is a bit dusty since everything is gravel. We ended up staying here 3 weeks and will come back. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Nice park, huge sites, desert setting. A bit dusty (everyone has an ATV) but really a nice spot. If you are looking for shopping or nightlife it might not be for you but quiet and restful it is. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
We have been here one week of our 4 week booking. We are most impressed with the park and staff services to date. We had a Wi-Fi connection problem the first day we were here but the staff were most accommodating and moved us to a site that resolved the problem. We recommend early reservations for a site during the Quartzsite RV & Rock Show period. The pool is heated and the hot tub is hot. The Country Store next door has a good stock of fresh vegetables and meats. We will be back. We camped here in a Motorhome.
The park Wi-Fi here is really bad! They use Tengo and like other parks using Tengo; the management could care less about your Wi-Fi connection. Nor the fact that Tengo took your money and did not deliver decent service. They can ignore Wi-Fi problems and simply blame Tengo. If Wi-Fi is important to you; I recommend you stay away from this place. Ive been RVing full time for 14 years and Wi-Fi here is one of the worst Ive seen in a long time. The quality is about like Wi-Fi was 10 years ago. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is the very first place we camped and we had a good experience, though the park is focused on desert ATV riders and model aircraft flying, neither of which we participate in. It is a desert site, enough said. Everyone was very friendly including the full timers, which we have often found in other locations to behave like they own the place and others are not welcome. Not so here. We probably will go back again to this campground mainly because it was so friendly and the sites were spacious. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
We have stayed here before: but this visit will be out last. Due to a storm the park had no power. So no water (pumps are electric) and no Wi-Fi. We left a day early and I asked for some kind of concession. The manager came out of her office and told me they don't make concession for anyone: anytime! I tried to explain that I have been a customer before, have recommended the park a number of times and I wasn't a happy camper. She was rude, made fun of me in front of other customers etc. I payed and told her I would tell everyone I know about my bad experience. She said go right ahead. So I am. The campers were very friendly but the staff seemed to hate their jobs. We are in the area often but will never stay here again! We camped here in a Motorhome.
Best restrooms and showers so far on this trip! Good food at the cafe as well. Make certain your GPS is correct on the address. Ours wasn't and we had a nice scenic detour. We would stay here again! We camped here in a Motorhome.
Arrived on a whim from I-10 Eastbound off on Hwy 60. Large facility with entrance and parking on gravel. Clean, neat and well cared for park. This park has very few occupants, mostly park models and permanent trailers, 5th wheels and older motorhomes. The areas around each is very nicely landscaped with desert flora. The office is closed at 1:00 pm so payment is on the honor system. Fill out an envelope and identify your payment method. There is a box outside the office just off the highway to deposit your payment. The pull throughs are absolutely huge. There are pedestals at one end of the pull through, so you are limited on position within the space by the length of your electric and sewer lines. Power is good, cable TV is limited but adequate for an evenings entertainment. The rate includes a Good Sam / AAA discount. This was just an overnight for us, but I would like to come back to explore what the surrounding area has to offer. When you look at their web site, you have much more that could keep a family busy for a week or so. I can't comment on how friendly the people are, we didn't run into anyone during the brief stay. Would definitely come back to explore again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Prior to coming to Brenda, I read all the reviews on this site. I would agree that Black Rock is about the best RV park in town. What really impressed us was the friendly people - strangers coming up to us and inviting us over to a campfire, inviting us on a 4-wheel drive, stopping to talk, etc. The sites are very large with ample room for RV, vehicles, trailers, and storage buildings. There are many park models, but everyone keeps their sites up well. Lots of ATVs, golf carts, Rhinos since you can go right out the back of the park onto BLM desert land and ride for miles. We will be back. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This was our second stay at this great park. Keep in mind this is desert camping. No paved roads, no grass, etc. But nice wide inner roads and easy access for any big rig. We are in a 42 ft. and had no problems. They have pull through sites as well as deluxe super wide back ins. Our toad is parked beside the MH. Nice friendly staff. We would stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
I didn't stay here. I stayed across the road at Desert Gold. My mistake. I wanted to do this review because of the Black Rock Cafe. Food was awesome service was great. Next time I'll stay here at Black Rock. Located about 15 miles east of Quartzite. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Very well laid out park. The larger gravel kept the park from being too dusty. Everyone is friendly from the staff to the guests. The cafe is great and I recommend them highly. We will be back. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is a very nice place to stay. The long term residences were very nice and helpful with any questions we had about the area. We carry in our “Toy Hauler” a quad and a Yamaha Rhino and like to ride right out of our site and we were not disappointed at all. It seems as though every other site, park model or not, had a quad so I felt right at home and the respect for others with dust and noise was very respectful. We spent 10 days here and plan to return. The restaurant was great and prime rib night was great. If you are coming from California, please WAIT to get diesel in Arizona and NOT in California as the price is about $0.40 less We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
We stayed one night in a site that was huge! There wasn't anyone on either side of us. This probably isn't a real complete or representative review, since we weren't here during their busiest time, but I liked the way we were treated and I sure liked the size of our site. We'd stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Very, very clean park. Appeared that some of the residents were full timers but were very friendly. The restrooms could stand a coat of paint but were very clean and comfortable. Wifi was extra but at $26.00 a day that was understandable. We would stay here again We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Clean. Very large sites. Propane on site, but expensive. It's lots cheaper down the road a mile. Restaurant on site, but poor food and lousy service. Mail pick up/notice on site, but someone opened a package without my permission before it got to me. The water is supposedly reverse osmosis filtered, but it didn't taste like it. There's a decent grocery store 1/2 mile away. The water at the store is better than the park's. Lots of full-timers/snowbirds here, who pretty much run the park. Our neighbors were _very _ neighborly. Spent several afternoons visiting with them over food and drinks. Plenty of open space around, great for ATVs, hiking, biking, even an RC aircraft field nearby. The park is very quiet, and I get the impression that the full-timers like it that way. There's way too much lighting at night. It's a lot like the suburbs. You can only see the major stars. All else was polluted by street lamps. Close enough to Quartzsite to take in the shopping, but without the January Quartzsite insanity. What I really disliked about this park was that many of the older folks running the park shouldn't be. They're snowbirds or full-timers who have no concept of helpfulness, marketing, or customer service. They seem to be there to get their free space rent and that's it. I would stay here again, but not as long, would not accept mail here or eat at the restaurant, and only buy propane down the road a mile. My general opinion is that it's overpriced for the service quality you get. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Great Park. Very wide sites. Quiet even tho the focus for recreation seems to be on ATV's. Looks like fun. We stayed here twice for a week with the time separated by a week dry camping north of Quartzsite. I really liked this place and the staff. Also, residents seemed very nice and friendly. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Excellent park, surrounded by BLM land. Staff very heplful and friendly. Ideal location for people with mountain bikes, jeeps and ATV's. Roads and sites are fine gravel which are watered daily. Cafeteria and 4 room motel on site. Trash pickup 5 days per week. The sites are extremely large with many pull throughs. Park is attractively landscaped with desert plants. We camped here in a Motorhome.
The last time we read about Black Rock RV Village in RVParkreviews, we had decided to go camping in Brenda but we weren't sure where we wanted to stay. The review helped us decide and we loved it. The park has big sites which are easy to get into. The front desk is a little small and not close to the area where we had to park but the staff was otherwise very nice. The sites and roads are all gravel but it's so close to the BLM land where we take our quads. We went to Dome Rock and rode for hours which we love. Nice place and will go back. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We had a great time camping at Black Rock RV Village. Even though, it is hard to find the Village of Brenda on a map, it is really close to Quartzsite: just a 15 minute drive East on I-10. The park has huge, flat sites and backs up on literally thousands of acres of beautiful Arizona desert. The staff was really friendly and we loved that there was a Cafe on-site. The dinner buffets were so good and the Sunday brunch was really nice, too. We attended a few of the recreation hall events and had a wonderful time! We camped here in a Motorhome.
We love the desert surroundings at this park. Their cafe, Black Rock Cafe, is really good. It was a relaxing vacation and there were many activities to participate in. We enjoyed everything - the facilities, the staff & everything was a welcome change to other places we've stayed. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We stayed here during the Quartzsite show and absolutely loved the place. Staff members were extremely helpful. Park was very full, and we ended up on a waiting list. They actually called us back quickly when they had an opening (great customer service!), and we were delighted with our site. All sites are huge, but we got a pullthrough that was over 100 feet long and 30 feet wide. I have never seen anything like it! They also had a FREE shuttle to Quartzsite. WiFi was great, and the whole experience was terrific. Highly recommended - No waiting list for us next year, we booked our site before we left for 2007! We camped here in a Motorhome.

Huge park,lot's of year around sites. Streets & sites are sand & gravel,very dusty. Most folks travel around in ATV's, noisy & dusty. Friendy people, but not a very comfortable park. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is a basic desert RV camp, but the place is exceptionally clean. The sites are
unbelieveably large. The pull throughs are at least 35 to 40 feet wide and 100 feet long. Everything is exceptionally neat. The restrooms and laundry are the cleanest I have seen in many, many campgrounds. The staff is friendly and available. To top it off there is an excellent restaurant at the campground. This is a good stop for overnight or as a destination to take in the Quartsite spectacular. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.

Beautiful desert campground. Very large sites 50 feet wide! Lots of things to do. Very friendly staff. 18 miles to Quartsite but much more civilized. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
We stayed here while traveling on a 6 week trip. The park was nice but geared more towards retirees. No lawns anywhere in the park so walking your pet wasn't very nice. Pet friendly? Maybe just a little. Had to do that early in the morning and pick up poo from cement or rocks. Not the easiest thing to do. Staff was mildly friendly. Might even say a little standoffish. My sisters husband has Parkinson's and we had to leave early. We had paid for one week and were not told that we could not be reimbursed, even for medical reasons. So we stayed 2 days and paid $204.63. Wont stay there again and would warn everyone to only pay for a night at a time. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Park is mainly a snowbird park but does have a couple of rows of pull-through sites for overnighters and short stays. Park is very nicely maintained with paved streets and sites with gravel with a cement patio pad. Site was adequate in length for our 38' fiver and truck and spacing between units is OK, but could be a little wider. Because the gravel is a little deep we did require leveling as the trailer sort of sunk a little. Lots of activities in park. Wi-Fi is free for the transients and worked at times. Speed varied throughout the day. I was not pleased with the Wi-Fi as it was not reliable. No real trees so using satellite was easy although they do provide cable with 16 channels. A lot of people with ATVs due to trails nearby, so they are coming and going but I did not find it a problem and all drove slow in the park. About 12 miles from Quartzite so it was not bad to be away from all the activity there yet still close enough to get there when you wanted to. Beware there are no services near the park. Only a limited grocery store down the road otherwise you have to go into Quartzite for everything, including gas. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Very quiet and relaxing. Level gravel sites, but kinda tight. Nice pool and large hot tub. My only complaint was the laundry room. All the washers/dryers are old, and many had signs noting problems. There was a moldy odor when you walked in. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Clean park with many activities. Overnight pull through sites very tight. Palm trees, site width, and pedestal placement make parking difficult. WiFi was free for first 3 days after that you pay for Tengo access. We would stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This campground is about 10 miles outside of Quartzsite,Arizona. It does have many regular and full time people staying here. The sites are big and spacious. The cement patio is movable if your rig is too big to get around it. The park offered to move ours, but ,we did not need it moved. If you want activities they have a bunch. They also have a swimming pool, hot tub, miniature golf, horseshoes, pool table, ping pong, exercise room, library, c ar wash and more. They are dog friendly, many paths to get into the desert with nature trails and a desert golf course! The campground is kept up. It's an older campground with some older rigs, but everyone seems to keep their site tidy. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This park is a little off 1-10 in the middle of nowhere. It is full of permanent residents with a small temporary section of pull through sites. Everything looked neat and clean. We assume the park was built long ago, for towables, because of the placement of utilities. Also, not that big rig friendly for staying hooked-up because of the concrete patio location and the planted palm trees at the front of each lot. Too hard to pull through without hitting the concrete or the palm trees due to the narrowness. This is O.K. for an overnight stop but next time we will pass it by. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Great park, very friendly staff and campers. Would give it a higher score if there was more to do in the area. Not much in the area, but desert. Bathrooms were extremely clean. We stayed in a pull through for short term users. Will definitely come back again. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Great ATV Park. Can ride out of the park from your site to more trails than I could ride in a month, and then soak the tired bones in the hot tub at night. Lots of activities, bingo, dancing, karaoke, crafts, yoga, water aerobics . Way more than I can remember. We put down a deposit to ensure a spot next January. Just love it here! We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Short timers are near the clubhouse and pool in pull-through spots. So, you are convenient to the pool, library, showers and laundry room. You are also in the middle of the four-wheelers going by all day and hear that noise. Great place for riding four-wheelers in the desert. You can walk across the street to a great little restaurant, This is a good place to camp if you are taking in events in Quartzsite, but you are miles and miles from anything else. Very friendly residents. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This is a well-kept desert park with many long-term residents. All of the streets were packed gravel and sites were also gravel with a concrete patio. A continuing parade of four-wheelers made it a bit dusty at times. The short-term angled, pull-through sites were very long. However, placement of trees as one exits the sites made it challenging to navigate. Wi-Fi (fee) was OK with coupon offering free access for short-term visitors. We camped here in a Motorhome.
A pretty nice park, but our experience was bad. Planned to stay 2 nights, but left after one. 550 sites, 525 permanent. We were the only unit in the short term sites, and were not welcome. Too many annoyances directed at us to list. Shame on "Big Rig Best Bets" directory for their glowing review of this park. We camped here in a Motorhome.
A very nice and clean park. It has long, level pull-through sites; good Wi-Fi and the TV is ok. The pool and spa were a nice addition. It's all gravel with desert landscaping. A good place to stay while on the road. There are limited office hours but you can register outside. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Usually stay at Black Rock across the street but thought we would try something new to us. The park is very similar to Black Rock, mostly full timers and spaces for travelers. Long pull through sites, very level but gravel. No windstorms, so no problems. Wi-Fi is free and each campsite has a cement patio slab, nice touch. We would certainly stay here again. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
We had a great stay here and will return. Rate is weekly rate. Large wide sites and Wifi is excellent at site. Very quiet park. The pool and spa are great, protected from the wind as they are surrounded by the office buildings. Would been a 10 but the park's paved roads have disappeared in some area. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Rate based on weekly rate. This park has gone down hill drastically. Very dusty and lots of ATVs. Roads are disintegrating. Lot of permanent seasonal park models with way too much junk. Asked for a table, never got it. We will NOT stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We stayed here for 9 days in October. We have a side by side & this is a great park for riders . Very active park in the day time, but quiet at night when you want some quiet time. Most all of the yearly regulars & the staff were really nice.Some of our next door neighbors were from our home town! I liked the fact almost everyone had jeeps, atv's or side by sides- lot's in common to talk about. the put put golf was fun. We enjoyed the pool & the hot tub , very clean. there were lots of birds to see& even big horn sheep. We plan on an extended stay next year. We camped here in a Motorhome.

I did this review to change the contact information. The Website is www.grapevine7.com/desertgold.htm The Phone is 800-927-2101. We camped here in a Motorhome.
I chose this place for the halfway point location and the fact it had a pool. I was very pleased with everything. The office closed early since it's the off season but clear instruction were given at the door. There were plenty to chose from and the site very level. Very level and everything was very well kept. A few full timers here that were very friendly. It is in the desert but the surroundings are pretty and boy was it quiet even though right of the highway. We will definitely be back during the "on" season. Nicest park I've been to. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
We camped here from November through April. Really had a great time. Liked the idea of leaving camp on your ATV and having miles of countryside to explore. BlackRock cafe across the road is excellent, especially Saturday night Prime Rib. The pool is sparkling clean, as is the very large hot tub. Lots of activities to choose from if so inclined. Saturday free music jam session is just great. All local campers participate. Everyone in the park is friendly and courteous of others. There are no street lights in the park, so the stars are bright. We are going back for another winter. Close to Quartzsite and rock and gem dealers and all the vendors and RV show and sale. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
We stayed here for two weeks and branched out to Quartzsite and Lake Havasu on day trips. The staff was very friendly and helpful, plus the resort offered many functions most of which were either free or very resonably priced. They offered a nice pool, spa, library, billiard and exercise room along with several classes on various subjects. We really enjoyed this park and would stay here again. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
