This is a park in the desert. Clean with wonderful concrete patio's that run the length of the coach. People are very friendly and immediately invited us to happy hour. If traveling west be sure to get fuel before coming into California and visit a grocery store. I understand the one in Needles is closing in May. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Wonderful RV park. All RV spots are located with a slab. Dog friendly and people were exceedingly kind. Spacing are adequate in size and restrooms were clean. Would return to this park in the future. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Spent two nights here. About 3 miles from the Interstate, so no road noise. Fairly level gravel sites with concrete patios. Did not see too many people out, but it was pretty hot when we were there. Good power, water, cable & Wi-Fi. A no frills park. We would stay here again. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
We stayed here for 3 months, for $220/mo, actually 205/mo but there is a 15.00 per month charge for reading the meter, so really 220/mo. Friendly staff and residents. Not all sites are 50amp, some only 30amp. Park located a few miles out of town in the desert, so you get a good desert experience, just off hwy 95, noise not bad. Dog friendly park, and lots of area for them to run and play. We would definitely stay again, and enjoyed our time here. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Nice campground, nice people. All gravel with concrete patios. Lots of ATV'rs were here during our stay, but not noisy at all. Quite a few full-time residents, but the place is very clean and neat. The community center was very nice, card games scheduled and lending library. We were here for 1 week. No cable TV, but antenna worked just fine. Close to Arizona and Nevada for side trips. Gas much cheaper in Arizona. Enjoyed our stay. We definitely would return. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
We stayed here overnight as halfway point to the Grand Canyon from San Diego. Very nice folks in office. Beware of the signs when you turn in it directs you to a dead end if you come at night. We had a towed so that is a problem. The owner helped me back up. Great for overnight. Cheap clean and pull through spot. We have young kids no problem also. We camped here in a Motorhome.
I agree with the last post. Great place for an overnight. Gas is MUCH cheaper across the bridge in Arizona, almost a dollar a gallon cheaper. Clean, spacious restroom/showers. Level gravel pull-through or back-in sites with very large concrete patios. Not many seasonals here yet, but many unoccupied RV's waiting for them. I-40 is 4 miles away, so no noise from there. Trucks use Rt 99, but very little noise. Clean laundry facilities and nice rec room. 106 degrees in September!!!! We camped here in a Motorhome.
Gravel sites with a large cement patio pad; full hookups and free Wi-Fi. There's some landscaping around the park entrance, and a lodge/rec room with a pool table, big TV, etc. for get-togethers. It's mostly permanent RVers there, but their rigs seemed clean and well-kept. Moderate highway noise from I-40 and 95. If you need gas, follow "K" St. to Harbor Ave. in Arizona -- it's almost a dollar a gallon cheaper there, and only a 10 minute drive away! We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
We called and were told full hook-up sites were available for $25/night. When we arrived we were offered a back lot site still supposedly with full hook-up and wi-fi, supposedly for the benefit of our dogs. It was dusk and when we got to the site I unhooked and began to set up. Found out the cable did not work and there was no sewer after all. The water and electric worked, and wifi was available. We were told no refund or reduced price because "we already ran your credit card". We stayed one night and left. I think the park mislead us. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Right to the point: We would give the place a high 7+. To get there, go right into Needles and turn right at Highway 95, then go about 4 miles. It's in the country. Really rather nicely kept for a place situated in the desert. Clean spot for a night. Restrooms, shower were clean. Washers and dryers also here. It's not at all grassy: expect sandy, dusty roads. We'd stay again for a night. We felt safe and spent a quiet relaxing night. Met others who stay all winter. Golf is close by. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Nice park. Five miles off I-40. Quiet. Bathrooms/showers roomy and clean. Nice clubhouse. There was a potluck the night I was here and I was invited. Nice staff. Cable didn't have many stations but both that and the Wi-Fi worked well. When I was checked in, I was given a card with the user name and password. I was told to be sure to capitalize as shown. I kept getting an error message. I called the 800 number and was told that the capitalization was incorrect. Other than that, everything else was okay. I was shown to my site. Plenty of space, fairly level. I would stay here again when passing through. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Very easy deal: 25$ per night. WiFi included. In the summer the camp ground is as deserted as the surrounding (seems to be a winter location from the north). Very nice management. We camped here in a Motorhome.
No-frills, desert park geared towards snowbirds. Needs a bit of upkeep, but perhaps the painting and grouting is planned during the soon-to-arrive offseason. We enjoyed a visit to Mitchell Caverns, an hour away. Fuel prices in Needles still gouge at the pace of 70-90 cents more per gallon. Overall a positive stay, may stay again. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Managers very friendly and helpful. Starry nights are a wonder. Clean restrooms and showers. WIFI slow but free. No added cost, only $25 per night. Will come back for a longer stay on the trip home. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
We pulled in and were immediately invited to a potluck which they were having that evening in the recreation room. After a wonderful dinner and meeting some very nice people, we were given a calendar of events for the month. They have a variety of activities scheduled. We later found out that this is a winter visitor park and from about October until March or April, the park is full of people from all over the country (Canada too). They come to this park because it offers a lot for its guests. It is about 25 miles from Laughlin, Nevada - It is about five miles from the Colorado River and from the Golf course. Besides the rec. room activities, there are many other activities in and around the park such as hiking, dirt biking and jeeping. The guests are all friendly, the management is friendly, and we started out as intending to stay for 2 nights, wound up staying for the month, and we'll be back this winter for the season. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This was a very nice park. The hosts were super friendly. Even though we arrived late they came out and greeted up and took us to our spot. The sites are gravel and there are plants tall enough between each site to allow plenty of privacy. It is an exceptionally clean park and very well maintained. We will remember this park and plan on staying here when we travel to and from California visiting family members. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Wow. Agree with the previous commenter. When we arrived it was 112 outside and miserably hot, but the host greeted us at our rig and escorted us to the site, then checked us in right there. Called later that evening to get a bag of ice as ice machine was locked. They delivered the bag of ice to our rig. Great customer service - very friendly hosts. Site was level, well-groomed, had a hedge of oleander and trees for privacy. All utilities worked perfectly, and had a cement pad for chairs, grill, etc. Easy on/off I-40. Rate is Good Sam. This place is a 10! We would definitely return. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
When we arrived in Needles it was 107 degrees but meeting the staff as they checked us in was like a breathe of fresh air! They were fabulous! It was our first night in a rental RV and they helped us hook up and were super friendly. They gave us some extra Wi-Fi passwords (because the park was essentially empty - can't do that when it's a full park!), and put us by the clubhouse and the pool (including the bathroom and showers!) because I mentioned at check-in that the kids wanted to swim. I had called and they had a propane gas grill and they graciously let us borrow it for the night and use the glass tables at the clubhouse for our dinner as long as we cleaned up nicely (and we did!). The rest of the park is really nice with gravel roads and large oleanders and hedges make good windbreaks. It was super easy to 'pull in' and 'pull out' the next morning! 5 stars! We camped here in a Motorhome.
Nicely landscaped campground.. Very clean and each site is plenty big.. The staff is wonderful.. Just got back from taking a quick swim in the pool.. Very clean and very refreshing.. We will stay here again.. We have a Jeep as a toad.. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We are a 45 ft motorhome towing a Jeep Wrangler. This is definitely the nicest park in Needles. Lots of flowers & palm trees. The sites are very private but the turn into the sites is tight for a rig our size. We chose to drive around and easily backed in. I suggest looking at the site prior to moving into it to decide how you wish to approach it. They have concrete pads and the grounds are very well kept. Very quiet; away from traffic noise. 50 amp is good and hookups are convenient. Personnel was cheerful. Good choice and we will return. We camped here in a Motorhome.
An excellent park for a brief or extended stay: small, quiet, spacious and level sites, friendly and helpful staff and far enough away from I-40 for the freeway noise not to be intrusive. We enjoyed the privacy provided by the shrubbery. Free Wi-Fi was adequate, but worked inconsistently. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Stayed here in November 2013 on the way to Arizona and on the way back March 2014 (for one week each way). We love this park. It's not too big,but clean and folks are real friendly. The hedge between sites makes you feel like you have your own privacy. Dog area is not adequate. However we walked our Weimaraner across the road in the desert. Needles is expensive, so gas up in Bull Head City. It's about 70 cents cheaper per gallon. Needles rips you off on gas. Monthly rate here works out to about $13 a day so if you want to long term it here, it would be a great place to stay. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This was a one-nighter for us and we picked it from the reviews we had read for the Needles area. An older retirement park with the majority of the sites being permanent residents. The site we were given was supposedly a view site, but the only view we had was of all the neighbors and a clubhouse directly across the road. Nice, helpful folks and we did have a good night's rest. Our space was a little tight for Class A but we managed and got hooked up with no problems, etc. The neighbors were friendly, also. One woman came by as we were hooking up and asked us if we were going to be staying a while and started telling us all about the various activities that go on in the park. When we told her we were just there for one night she seemed disappointed. Later we both said that perhaps they look forward to seeing new folks move in so they can find out lots of gossip to pass on about them, etc. Overall, we probably wouldn't stay there again as it is not our kind of park even tho we ourselves are seniors. Nothing against the park. It was fine for what we needed and would recommend it to anyone needing a clean and cozy spot for the night. We would have rated it higher had it not been so cramped feeling. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is a clean, well landscaped park with a helpful friendly staff. Lot of snowbirds from Canada and a few park models. We would have enjoyed the stay more except for the incessant ATV traffic and noise. Since most of the interior roads are not paved, this generated a lot of dust requiring us to keep our rig buttoned up. The owner has an ATV and apparently caters to this crowd so if ATV noise and dust is your thing this is the park for you. Be aware that if you use a credit card the owners surcharge the rate to make up for credit card fees. We camped here in a Motorhome.
WiFi available - yes. Does it work - NO. Lost our $100 registration fee because we didn't stay 6 months. Should have registered for only 1 month. Potlucks are a joke. Lasting barely 35 minutes before cleanup crew starts their cleanup and rearranging tables. Because a select few have their card game scheduled for 6:30 and heaven forbid they should be asked to cancel it or postpone it for an hour. While there were a few friendly people there, the majority of the occupants never came out during the day and rarely spoke. Quad riding took a person that loves to travel the trails about 35 - 50 MPH, otherwise you get left behind and if you get too far behind, someone has to come looking for you, and boy do you get the cold shoulder. Listened to constant complaints about how much it cost to heat the pool. After the December (Christmas) potluck, when we couldn't even hang around and chat with friends because the cleaning crew had to clean up, we decided to leave. It's a nice looking park, but not our type. 5 other parties either left with us, or didn't come because of the way this park operates, and they won't go there, either. We won't be back. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
This is a very well maintained Resort, helpful and friendly hosts guided us to our site, then took care of registration at our site as well. Roads are a mixture of concrete and gravel. Sites are course gravel with concrete patios. There are large pull through sites and huge back in sites. Big rig access is a little tight but do able, just take it easy. Very quiet, lots of privacy around the RV with hedges and shade trees between sites, and plenty of space for the towed. There is a wonderful view over to the mountains and the desert landscaping is lovely. The bathrooms and laundry are clean and well equipped. Very pet friendly with a cute dog run and pick up bags. WiFi and cell were good. There is also a heated pool, so you can swim year round. Its an easy drive to Laughlin with plenty of restaurants and casinos. This Resort is very popular with the Snowbirds and we can see why. We would stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Beautiful! Thank you prior reviewers! Great views, nice, level gravel sites. Personal escort & sign in at my coach! Much assistance with our refrigerator issue. (Cover your exterior fridge plate when having coach pressure washed). Would definitely stay here again for overnight or longer stay to visit the area! We camped here in a Motorhome.
A Good Sam park, so we got a small discount and it was off season. I'd guess it's packed in the winter! Friendly staff. Great place for us to spend the night while passing through! Tree shaded spot with good pedestal power and sewer access. Spotless but worn restrooms/showers. Crystal clear pool that was sooo good to splash around in after a day's drive! Easy on/off from the highway, not too much highway noise. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
This is a beautiful park. It is well kept and very clean. Beautiful flowers, trees, and landscaping. The sites are large with a cement patio. There are many pull throughs. The hosts were lovely people, friendly and helpful. It is very dog friendly and has a dog run. It is a park for snowbirds so we had no trouble getting a spot. It's probably hard to get into Oct-March. We would definitely stay here again. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
What a delightful campground in every respect. The host & hostess are super helpful and polite. The campground is beautiful with oleanders at the entrance and in between the individual sites. This campground is impeccable; I can't say enough about it. Temperatures were in the 100s when we got there, but the pool was cool and clean. You will not find a complaint at this campground. Perfect. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Price reflects monthly rate. The park is part concrete and part gravel. Sites are gravel with concrete patios and bushes separating sites. Turns can be a little tight for big rigs. Park was clean but trash overflowed frequently. Camp hosts were friendly as were many of the long term folks. We found the WiFi to work quite well. Verizon also worked much better than it had across the river on the Arizona side. We enjoyed the pool area and the laundry was nice as well. There is some train and highway noise in the distance. Easy access from I-40 made this smaller park full almost every night while we were there. We would definitely return. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We had a nice friendly greeting from the hosts and were escorted to our site and guided into it perfectly. Each site has a cement pad but no picnic table. The sites were narrow but the beautiful oleander bushes made them private. We had no problem opening 4 slides. There was a small fenced-in dirt dog area. We walked our dog on the barely traveled road. The people, even the long-term ones, were very friendly. This is a quiet park. The location of this park is one of the reasons we chose it. We went to Lake Havasu/London Bridge, the Mojave Desert, hiked in the Turtle Mountains, and drove through the ghost town of Oatman. We would definitely return to this park again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Only an overnight stop for us, but a very nice campground. Well worth staying at for multiple days if in the Needles area. Level pull throughs, but a tad bit narrow. Long enough to avoid dropping the toad (with a 37' motorhome). Oleander privacy barriers between the sites. WiFi and utilities were fine. Concrete patio, but our passenger side slider overlapped part of the patio in order to have enough room for the driver side slider. Campground hosts met us as we drove up, escorted us to the site, helped us position the rig, and then took care of the paperwork after we were settled in the site. No having to stop at the office to checkin. Campground was full due to a lot of snowbirds, either still in residence or passing through. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Not a bad little park, but a bit tight for 40'ers. Services at the back of the site in the pull-through I was in, requiring extra hoses etc. Everything was clean and well maintained except for the free Wi-Fi which was useless. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Sites are spacious and separated by Oleander bushes which provide some privacy. The staff was very friendly and helpful. We would definitely stay here again and recommend this RV park. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This is a very nice park. Loved the privacy of each site. Tall Oleanders between sites. Nice concrete patios. No tables though. Camp hosts were very friendly and take you to your site and sign you up. The Wi-Fi is free but signal was low and it wouldn't hook up, We had our own Wi-Fi so it was ok for us.We could see the town at night and it was a nice view from our RV.The palm trees are lit up at night. We would stay here again. Rate includes tax. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This is a great campground all around. Price can't be beat. Easy access on and off I-40. Hosts are super nice and helpful. Easy check-in. Host guides you to your site and registers you there. Pool looked immaculate as did the whole campground. Sites are roomy with oleander bushes between them for nice privacy. Nice concrete pad, clean all around. Beautiful views. We only stayed overnight on our way to Arizona but would definitely stay here again and for longer. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Nice looking park with hedges in between sites which was nice, but made it tight. Resort check in handled by woman in golf cart who appeared miserable from the heat. Gravel sites with concrete picnic pads, but no tables. OK place to stay, but nothing special. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Stayed here as a one-nighter with a late arrival (after hours). Late registration was very convenient and easy. Really nice small park that appeared very tidy and well kept. Sites are quite private feeling although a bit narrow due to the nice shrubs between sites. Appears to have cable but at my site the connector end was missing from the wiring. I would stay here again if passing through! We camped here in a Motorhome.
Extremely well run and well maintained. Very nice folks. Large hedge between each site. Pool and showers very clean. All sites seemed to be pull-through, but I'm not sure about that. We stayed here twice on our tour of the southwest and on our way in and out of California. Out of all the RV parks we stayed at this was in my opinion the best . We camped here in a Motorhome.
Interesting park with a fitting name. First of all there's no office, nice setup actually when you pull in a host meets you in a golf cart, leads you to your site and registers you there. The entire park is 100% rock and gravel. No dirt, no grass which made it tough on my poor dog. The sites are separated by large hedges giving loads of privacy. All the utilities worked just fine and WiFi was decent. The two restroom/showers are on the pool deck. Both unisex giving you your own little private bathroom with toilet and shower, very clean and well maintained. The turns in the park are very tight, with a 20' truck towing a 28' trailer I had to really be on my toes leaving the park getting pointed in the correct direction. I'd stay here again all things considered. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Park hosts are a little unfriendly. Asked the host which site we were going to and he mumbled something unintelligible, gave the impression that I aggravated him, and started driving to a site. The sites are very close together. There is limited shade. Our section of the park was all gravel with a small concrete patio. No table or anything outside other than a concrete patio. The park is just OK for an overnight stay, I would not consider staying here for anything other than an overnight on the way to somewhere else. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This small pretty park is one of our favorites. It is quiet and has tall blooming oleander bushes between each site for privacy. You are escorted to your site by super friendly hosts where registration takes place. Excellent WiFi and although there is no cable, we were able to get several nice channels with our antenna. This is our second visit and we will definitely return when passing through the area. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This campground had many long-term snow birds but some spots for overnight. One of the best stopover parks we encountered on our trip. When we called ahead to inquire about a vacancy, the manager did not want a credit card, just said they'd hold the site for us and they did. The sites are gravel, but are separated by Oleander shrubs that provide some privacy as well as a windbreak. Nice area to walk your dog behind the park into the BLM area. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
A very nice, quiet, and well-maintained park. We planned to stay one week, but stayed for two. If you stay for 7, you get the 8th night free. The resort host meets you at the entrance and escorts you to your site, paperwork done at site (cash or check only). Each site is separated with oleander bushes and trees, providing nice privacy. (For larger coaches you may want to ask for their wider sites.) They have an "unheated" pool. Bathrooms and laundry room are clean. The park is located on Route 66, but is a very quiet road, hardly used. We used this road and the BLM land across from the park to walk and exercise our dog, great place to play! The city of Needles does not offer a lot, but is a great central location to explore many other locations. Fill up in Arizona as fuel is significantly higher in California! We would definitely stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Very nice campground with beautiful spots. The hosts/owners are very friendly and helpful. It would have been a 10 if the pool wasn't so cold and the Wi-Fi was a bit faster. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Facility was very clean and well-run by the owners. Owners were very pleasant hosts, and very helpful with area shopping information and recommendations for dining. Park only accepts cash, add tax to nightly rate. Unusually nice visual privacy between sites and shade. Sites were well leveled and very clean. Hookups were very good quality and condition. No "junk" piled around rigs. We highly recommend this park. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Desert View is a well-maintained and well run RV park. They meet you when you come in and take you to your site where they check you in. You don't even have to get out of your rig until set up. The sites are all gravel with concrete patios and tall shrubs providing privacy from your neighbors. The shower rooms are well-maintained and clean. There are lots of birds in the park and by the time we left, I was a little tired of the mourning doves waking me at the crack of dawn. The downside relates to the town of Needles. When we were there, diesel was selling for about a dollar more a gallon more than anywhere else we'd been. Yes, you heard me right. A DOLLAR more a gallon. I just checked GasBuddy and diesel is currently selling for $4.79 in Needles when we've routinely been paying $3.65 to $3.89 per gallon on the road. There is also only one grocery store of any size there as well and their prices are also high and the selection limited. Not to fear though. A short drive to Mohave Valley a couple of miles north will take you Safeway and competitive fuel prices. Also use care on I-40 between Needles and the Arizona border as both directions will put you on the absolute roughest stretch of highway we have encountered coast to coast. Our RV has a rear bedroom with the closet at the far back of our rig. Despite slowing to 35 mph, one set of bumps recently had us completely airborne with all eight tires off the ground. We hit so hard, it completely ripped our closet down and we had to repair it in Yuma. Northbound isn't much better. Despite the minuses such as greedy gas stations in Needles, Desert View is a lovely and friendly RV park and worth a visit. There is also much to see and do nearby such as the charming town of Oatman, Nevada. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Nice park on hill with nice view. Gravel sites with concrete patios. Resort hosts are very friendly and helpful. Sites separated by 8 ft high bushes. On Historic Route 66. Stayed here several nights while sight-seeing along Route 66 and London Bridge. Would stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
As stated this is one fine RV park. Check in is a breeze, escort to your site, all fees collected at your site, (cash or check only). Sites are separated by beautiful Oleander hedges. Turns are a little tight, however I had no problem with a 34 foot class A with a tow. Site was level and had a concrete patio. The entire staff was very friendly and helpful. The pool was a nice treat with the unseasonable 101 degree temp. However it is not heated and was a little cool. No cable TV but free Wi-Fi that worked very well. Also nice and quiet, a real treat after so many noisy freeway parks. Stay here, you won't be disappointed. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This would be a 10 if they had cable! What a nice place. Best check-in ever! They meet you at the gate, guide you to your site, then do all the paperwork right there. Nice and quiet and nice and private. Very friendly hosts and free Wi-Fi. Love it, will stop here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
A nice overnight spot or home base for exploring the area. The owner invited me to join them for Thanksgiving dinner, but regrettably I had other commitments. Very safe, well maintained park. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
If you stay at this campground you will not be disappointed but in all fairness we stayed here on Oct. 07, 2010 and the weather was nice , down to about 50 for the night. The campground has long drive ways and it has private sites with oleanders bushes separating the spaces for privacy . They have palm trees all the way around and it is very quiet. This is my kind of campground and we would definitely stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
No one in their right mind would come to Needles in the summer unless they had to and this place has a lot of one-night visitors. It's an OK campground, but felt pretty sterile to us. The campsite is large gravel, with a concrete pad, but no picnic table. The site was long enough for our long rig and we could park the truck diagonally in back. The electric power was more than adequate enough for us to run both air conditioners without worrying. The camp hosts were helpful and friendly but they do not take credit cards -- only checks or cash. It's a fine place to spend a night or two and maybe there's more going on in the winter -- it looks like lots of people store their rigs here for the summer and come back for the winter. The directions for getting here are a bit confusing, but they have lots of large signs, so watch for them -- or, as others have suggested, follow the signs for the KOA, which is next door. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Easy access from freeway. Very friendly and helpful staff, that escorts you to your site. We had stayed here on previous trips through Needles and in our opinion, it's a great stop. We pre-registered and paid on line, so we were immediately escorted to our site and did the remaining paperwork here. This park sits right next to a KOA. My advice is drive past the KOA and stay here. We think you will be glad you did! We camped here in a Motorhome.
We pulled up and were impressed to have someone meet us at our RV, it was 110 degrees!! They asked if we had reservations. Noticed we had kids and parked us with in close proximity to the pool. Also, noticed we had a dog and told us where we could "relieve" our dog. They led us to our spot and directed my husband in and stayed to make sure we didn't need anything. The spots are lovely. Each separated by a flowering hedge and even though they sites are gravel they have their own concrete patio to park next to. The pool area, laundry and restrooms are immaculate. I can account for only two negatives. One shower for each sex and the proximity to local services; over 4 miles away. Other then that a beautiful oasis in the desert. We camped here in a Motorhome.
I don't know of anyplace nicer than this. These folks know how to run an RV Park. Lovely desert sites separated by 10' Oleander hedges, exellent pool. Park has nice people, is quiet, super clean. Superb. Follow the signs to Needles KOA: it's right next door but way better! We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Ended up here when we couldn't find Needles KOA. OK for the night - trouble connecting to Wi-Fi since we arrived late and couldn't get assistance until after 8:00am the next morning. "Wi-Fi available" means they have to give you the secret code during office hours. No cable TV. Uneven gravel sites. Probably a good place with pre-planning instead of dropping in late. We camped here in a Motorhome.
The owners meet you and guide you to your site. Access for a big rig is all right, but some of the turns are tight. The owners are very friendly and helpful. The pad was level and hedges provide a modicum of privacy. It is relatively convenient and right next door to the KOA. I was quite pleased with the park as a stopover and would recommend it. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Level, gravel sites with small concrete patio. Large oleander shrubs between each site gives nice privacy. Fair sized dog run; no grass but it's the desert. Nice landscaping. The pool area is lovely and on a 105 degree day, the water felt great. You are escorted to your site and registered there. Absolutely painless process. Would definitely stay again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Gravel sites but level. Oleanders on both sides of site give you privacy. Staff was great. It was a pleasant surprise for the area. Verizon air card worked great. Close to Laughlin, NV (22 mi). A great overnight park. We would stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This was the nicest campground we stayed in on our entire summer trip. It is clean and quiet, and there is shade, which you need in the desert in the summer. The bathrooms and showers are spotless. The people are friendly and they register you at your site and help you park. They even brought us ice right to our RV. We stayed here twice this summer, on the first and last days of our trip. We will definitely stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We pulled in to register and someone met us at our coach. She escorted us to our site and registered us there. We used the swimming pool and the swimming pool patio was beautiful & very clean. The whole park was extremely clean. We had no noise from the highway overnight even though it is fairly close to the park. Each site as a concrete patio. The park roads are gravel. Everything is clean as a whistle. Classy park. We are looking forward to returning again soon. We camped here in a Motorhome.
The hosts were courteous and helpful, guiding us to our site and assisting with parking, and registered us on the site. Cash/checks only. The gravel sites are very pretty and quite deep. We were able to pull through without unhooking for our overnight stay. We would definitely stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We had called ahead to the KOA and Desert View and chose Desert View because they would not charge us extra for Wi-Fi or for having a 12 year old with us. Park is beautiful with blooming flowers and palm trees. Each site feels very private as there are plants on both sides screening you from neighbors. We had one of the PT sites as we were only staying 1 night. Hosts were super friendly and helpful with things to do and places to go. They even warned us not to buy gas in Needles because it is so overpriced. Park has a small swimming pool, horseshoes, a clubhouse and a very clean laundry area ($1.50 wash/$1 dry).There are no playgrounds or things for kids to do besides swim but no one seemed to mind ours being there. Our site had 50 amp, was gravel and had a concrete patio. No grill or fire rings. No cable but the TV stations we did get came in very clear, mostly from Phoenix and Las Vegas. Park was very easy to get to from I-40 and was perfect for an overnight stop. We would stay here again if passing through. Be warned however they only take cash or checks. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We really enjoyed our overnight stay here. Cash or checks only, hosts meet you as you pull into the campground, then escort you to your site. Our site was long enough for motorhome and tow car. Nice flowery shrubs along each side of site providing privacy. There are 2 showers, private. They were clean, a bit dated, but very functional. We would camp here again, an excellent facility. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This rate is based on the monthly rate for the space in which we stayed. If you stay for a month you are also charged for your electrical usage. We found this park one summer while looking for the KOA next door and decided to try it because it looked clean and well maintained. We liked it so much we returned the following three winters for 1-2 months each time as they have a strong snowbird population. It is one of the nicest parks in which we have ever stayed. The owners and hosts are very helpful and friendly. The spaces are clean with tall oleanders and a couple trees between each space for privacy. Each space also has a large cement patio. The spaces are all gravel mostly pull-through sites. The sound from vehicles passing on the gravel road throughout the park can sometimes be very noisy. TV reception is fair with only a rooftop aerial but most folks have satellite. There is an unheated pool, laundry facilities, horseshoe pit, & clubroom. There are many activities if you want to participate but beware they mostly involve $. During the winter there is a music jam every other Saturday, a couple potluck dinners each month, crafts and a golfing group once a week. There are limited spaces available for overnighters which fill up fast so be sure to call well in advance for reservations. We are very disappointed in the new policy for snowbirds effective for the year 2011. They will not take reservations for less than 3 months stay. Unfortunately because of that we will not return next year. We will miss the park and all the friends we have made over the years. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We used this park for a 2 night layover. The friendly campground hosts met us and helped us into our spot which was large and pleasant with nice shrubs separating us from our neighbors to provide a sense of privacy. Everything was very clean and well kept. The park is located far enough off the highway to be nice and quiet. It appeared that most of the sites were occupied by snowbirds who return year after year with just a few sites reserved for overnighters, but everyone was very welcoming. Wi-Fi worked fine. Our stay here was very pleasant and we would definitely stay here again. As someone else mentioned: this park takes only cash or checks. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is a lovely park close to the KOA but further back from the freeway and thus, much quieter. We were warmly greeted and escorted to a secluded spacious site. The facilities are nearly new and spotless. The only thing that keeps it from being a 10 is that there is no cable tv, but then, there is none available anywhere in Needles. We would definitely stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Great for an overnight stay - although limited number of spaces. Very nice host couple. Exceptionally clean rest rooms. No cable here (or at the KOA next door) but can receive several broadcast stations. Wi-Fi worked well. Watch out for the very high gas prices in the area - 60 cents a gallon more than Parker, AZ! We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Lots of gravel, at times I felt I needed 4x4. A nice clean site. We were told the wireless signal was great but we could not get it inside our trailer. We had to sit outside at the end of our spot. I think they need some more antenna's. The price was reasonable but they only took cash or check and we did not know it until they asked for it. Luckily we had the cash or we would have gone to the KOA next door. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
This park is an oasis in the desert. Has beautiful landscaping, friendly, friendly, friendly hosts. You are met at the entrance by the hosts who guide you into your site and register you right at the site. Has lots of activities. We spend the Fall, Winter, and Spring here. It's a good idea to call ahead for reservations. If you miss this one you miss the friendliest, best park in the area. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
All of the previous reviews are on point. Verizon cell and air card signal strength is very good. Have stayed here before, so knew what to expect, including the heat. Currently, hotter than hell: about 115 during the day and 80 at night. No tables at sites, and no grass, but there is a club room building with a covered patio to get out of the direct sun. Would stay here again. More Gin and Tonic, please. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This was one of the prettiest and cleanest campgrounds we ever stayed at. The sites were large and all pull throughs. The sites are separated by large oleander bushes which were in full bloom when we arrived. There are palm trees lining the side of the property. At night they are lit up with Christmas lights around the trunk. It's very pretty and very friendly camp hosts. My only complaint is that there is no nice area to walk your dogs. They have to walk on the gravel. There is a dog pen in the back but it's not very nice and pretty small. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
We stopped here overnight on our way home to Reno from Mesa. We usually stay at another park in the area but decided to try this one for a change of pace. We were very happy we did. There is no office so you are met at the entrance and escorted to your site where the registration is completed and fee collected. We were welcomed as if we stayed here often. It's nice they have a fenced dog area and that you are welcome to walk your dog anywhere in the park as long as they are leashed and cleaned up after. The sites are very adequate for a rig with 4 slides. The patio was nice sized. They only thing that kept us from giving this park a "10" rating is they have no cable hook-up. For those of us without satellite it makes watching our favorite shows a little more difficult. We now have a new overnight spot when traveling east or south. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Very good for an overnight stop. Watch out: gas prices are very high in this area! Hosts met us on arrival: very friendly reception! Pull-through site was a bit tight for slide-out due to trees. Gravel site with a concrete pad. Lots of bushes and trees for privacy. Some roads are paved, some are gravel. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Charming small RV park. Stayed here one night on the way north and would have stayed longer but did not have time. Restrooms older but clean. There is a good rec room. There is no office and the host completes the reservation and collects payment at the site. Good patio pad. There is even a small fenced dog run about 15 x 15. Only drawback is no cable TV. Sites nicely separated by hedges. Great landscaping with good lighting. We camped here in a Motorhome.
The relatively new owners (3 years) have made lots of improvements, from what we've heard. Hookups and concrete pad at site were all in good order. We loved the blooming oleander bushes that separated each RV site--nice privacy as well as the beautiful palm trees that lined the street side--lit up in the evenings. Nice for a stroll. We stayed overnight (on Thanksgiving day no less) and were invited to the resort's feast, no need to bring anything. We had a ball with the mostly snowbird crowd (there were a few other overnighters) in the Route 66 decorated clubhouse. We were sorry we weren't staying longer as they announced a trip for Monday after Thanksgiving to drive to the bottom of the Grand Canyon--sounds like lots of organized activities for the snowbirds. Very nice folks. There are not very many amenities at the resort itself (tiny pool), but organized activities, proximity to Laughlin, Vegas, and other attractions. While we've stayed at technically nicer (read: fancier) places, I give this high marks for friendliness, cleanliness, and overall welcoming atmosphere. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Unfortunately, when we arrived we where told that they did not have a space reserved for us. I showed them my reservation from the online service they use from their website, but they were still unable to honor my reservation. They refunded my $33.00 and we went next down at the KOA (which was cheaper and almost as nice). I was disappointed that they didn't try to make up for their mistake by offering a free or reduced spot the next time we stopped in the area. We have camped at this park several times and have always been pleased, but are very disappointed with them over this situation. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Small jewel in desert. Its mostly seasonal winter long term stays 55 plus. But they do cater to overnighters and its well worth the stop. Pool is very small. Hosts are very friendly folks. Its easy access from I-40 but far enough away to be quiet. Sites are landscaped so you don't see next person. We camped here in a Motorhome.
For anyone who has been to this park & cursed the road, it has been repaved! Park continues to be absolutely spotless with wonderful landscaping in a desert setting. Park is a ten if they add solar heat for the pool which was 74 degrees on a mid 90 degree day. We camped here in a Motorhome.
A very nice surprise! Beautifully landscaped smaller park with level sites, each enclosed by oleander hedges and the entry road lined with tall palms which are illuminated at night. Gorgeous flowers and desert shrubs placed with care. Spotless restrooms, small but nicely maintained pool. Hosts are very helpful. We found TV reception virtually nonexistent, but it was no big deal for one night. This park is well planned and meticulously cared for. Yes, we would definitely stay here again. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
We've stayed there twice, love it each time. First at Christmas 2007, met lots of nice snowbirds, second was May 2008, overnight. Camp hosts both time were helpful, took us to our site, and made sure all was O.K. Easy on and off Hwy 40 . Our Dogs love the fact that they could go for long walks with us in tow . It gets a 10 from us . We camped here in a Motorhome.
This was a nice campground, definitely designed for the retirement set. The pool was very small, but a welcome relief from the heat. Everyone was super friendly. They escort you right to your site. There wasn't any recreation area to speak of, where you could walk around or enjoy the outdoors. But it's on historic Route 66, so that's sort of fun. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Poor road access, but that's not this campground's fault, rather the city/county. We loved the wall of bushes between sites, private feeling. The hosts go out of their way to be accommodating. Quiet, even with a Harley rally in town. Would clearly do it again and recommend it. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Heat the pool! The pool is heated via solar, but at 71* it's too cold for me, especially when the outside air temps are in the 90's. All in all, this is a clean, well laid out park. Not much going on in town. The fuel prices in town were $4.49 per gal for unleaded. If your coming west on I-40, exit #9 in Arizona is a buck a a gallon cheaper! We stayed here for a week in a motorhome and would do so again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is a nice park, we stayed for 5 days. The hosts were friendly but the regulars were not. If you are a social person don't expect much. Most the folks in this park are full time people. My wife and I tried to talk with a couple people, and got one word answers. The park has free Wi-Fi, concrete pads, no cable, gravel roads. The laundry and clubhouse are very clean. In fact this whole park is very clean and maintained. The fuel prices in Needles are a dollar more per gallon vs Arizona. We drove over to Bullhead City and saved $35.00 to fill up. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
This was an OK camp ground. We did get lost using the directions from the camp ground. Camp Hosts who took us to our site said that happens all they time! Maybe they should fix that? Our site was narrow with a concrete slab and no table. It did have bushes to shield one site from the other. No site TV hookups yet they have satellite on every public building. Restrooms and showers were unisex and only 2 in our area. Made for a long waiting line in the morning. The thing that got a 7 review is that they do not take credit cards! Raise the fee $1 to cover the cost if necessary. As people on the road we do not like to carry lots of cash with us. We will only go back if everyplace is booked. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is a very nice park. Needles is so dry and not very scenic, but this park has very nice landscaping, lots of palm trees, and has planted bushes between each site for privacy. At night they have flood lights on the palm trees which is pretty. The park is fairly new and very well kept up. They had free, working WIFI. There is no cable TV, but we got many stations with our antenna. I used the laundry room and it was very clean. The hosts were friendly and escorted you to your site. Many of the RVs are people here for the entire winter. They have a pool too, but I didn't see a hot tub. They do have a club house. I would definitely stay here again and recommend it to anyone. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This is a nice little park. We have stayed here a couple of times while traveling through the area. The road to the resort needs a lot of work, it is the old Route 66 road but not the responsibility of the resort. The pull-through sites are separated by shrubs which gives some privacy. The hosts escort you to your site and register you at your site. The only negative was the Wi-Fi wasn't working. We will stop here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Nice clean park. Sites have concrete patios, but no picnic tables. Wi-Fi was great and free. Pool is unheated, otherwise I would have rated this a 10! There is a Bashes Grocery for food shopping close by. If you need fuel and are heading towards Flagstaff on I-40, the first exit after the truck scales has a Pilot fuel stop with prices $1.00 lower per gallon than California. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Revisited park & found to be big rig friendly. Main roads are concrete and others river rock. Sites are long enough for & wide enough for any size coach with any number of slides. Sites are river rock with a concrete patio pad. No table is provided. The river rock is not dusty at all. Utilities are modern & well placed. Park is mix of park models, seasonals and short termers. Patrons are mainly older retirees and no playground so I would not classify this park as a "family type campground". New wifi is strong & very useable. Staff is very friendly & helpful. I would rate this park a ten, but the pool is unuseably cold even though it was over 90 degrees today. We camped here in a Motorhome.
An oasis in the desert. Large sites, concrete patios, lots of privacy because of Oleander bushes between each site. Very, very quiet. Nice to check in at site. Easy access from I-40. We would surely stay here again if in Needles. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Gravel roads and sites, with a cement pad for your BBQ or tables, etc. Nice staff, very friendly and accommodating. They do not accept debit or credit cards. Cash or check only. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Nice park: large pull throughs with hedges on each side giving privacy. Has free WiFi. Staff very nice. They register you at your site after escorting you. We will stay here again. Very clean park. We camped here in a Motorhome.
I can't think of any thing bad to say about this park. The sites were nice clean gravel with privacy hedges between each site. There was a nice pool next to a comfortable laundry room. And there were plenty of cute quail wondering about the site. If I were a full-timer, I would love to stay a few months at this park. Very, very pleasant. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This is a beautiful, clean and friendly desert park. The landscaping is very pretty and the sites are private with blooming shrubs between. We were greeted and led to our site by a very nice couple, who registered us at the site. We will certainly stay there again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
The staff was very friendly - to the point of letting us know the next morning about bad travelling conditions so we could make choices. A very well-kept park. The pool looks very nice. Pet-friendly. The pet run is best for small dogs but, there is some open land nearby for longer walks. Privacy hedges between sites. I recommend this one. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This park is under new ownership and is now open all year. Staff is extremely friendly and helpful. The park is very clean and modern. Pull through sites are private, gravel and wide enough for any number of slides. Sites have concrete pad, but no table. This is a great park located in the SoCal desert. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We stopped here instead of continuing on to the KOA Needles. Glad we did. It is beautiful. The sites are gravel with a cement pad. The showers we used were by the pool. They were clean, but became quite steamy due to the desert heat. Couldnt be helped really. It is not really a family vacation type of park but kids are fine for overnight. Mine used the pool for hours. We were the only ones in it. The laundry room was very clean, the host was very nice. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Visited park in 40' motorhome. Resort is new, very nicely landscaped and lit. Very big
rig and satellite friendly. Host spaced the rvs every other one(not full) which added to privacy. Entire resort, including the sites, is covered in river gravel which is very clean and non dusty. Sites also had cement pad, but no table. Utilities were modern & well placed. We had a beautiful city light view from our site. Resort had a beautiful pool, but it was too cold as it is solar heated only. Laundry & restrooms were spotless. Hosts were friendly & helpful. We will stop here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.

This new park was a great find. We came across it as we were heading for the Needles KOA, which is next door. A sign out front advertised $16.95 per night. That is the price for water and electricity. Sewer is an additional $2 and then you get hit with a city tax, so it came out to $20.85, still a great price. (cash or check only) The manager met us in a golf cart as we entered the campground and we were promptly ushered to our pull-through site. Then he brought over his wife, who filled out the reservations form and we were settled in. Nice spacious spaces with shrubbery planted between rows. There is a small pool, laundry and a club room where they had a bingo game going that evening. They also suggested a nearby restaurant with cheap prices. We had leftovers to eat however and didn't try it. This little park was very pleasant and is only 25 miles from Laughlin, so might be fun for a couple of days. They get 6 TV channels (UHF). There is some faint noise from US 40, although the highway is several blocks away. The management is trying very hard to put this little RV park on the map. Wish we could have stayed longer, but we'll be back. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
As an ELK member, we naturally enjoy all the benefits of such. You must be an BPOE member to camp here as with all BPOE facilities. This park is clean, well kept and very easy to get into for large rigs. Since we were just passing through we decided to free style it and dry camp which was only $8.80 per night. The hospitality is always great and accommodating. We'll definitely be back as a Benevolent ELKS member and supporter. You can pickup your RV travel directory at most ELKS lodges. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
A members only park. Clean and well maintained. Friendly check in by bartender. Nice overview of the city and valley from your easy chair. My GPS shows the address in the middle of the freeway. Keep driving and you'll find the lodge 1/4 mile up the hill. No freeway noise at the parking area. Another fine example of Elks hospitality. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Rate is for a 50 amp FHU pull-thru site. Elks members only. Sites are level and are gravel facing out from the top of a low mesa. The lodge is located in a residential area some distance from the I-40 freeway so it is quiet. However, as other have mentioned, the wind does blow and in the summer is definitely hot. This is another of those hidden Elks Club gems that we would definitely stay at if again passing through the area. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We stayed here two nights. The lodge and RV are on visa with nice views but the wind blows all the time at least when we were here. It is right off of hwy 40 so you get some noise. The sites are dirt pull-throughs and almost level. Close to Oatman and downtown RT 66 fame. We would stay here again. You must be an Elk member to stay here. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
We planned to make a one-night stand here, but the park was so nice, we stayed an extra night and visited the quaint town of Oatman, AZ nearby. The sites are staggered so you aren't looking right in your neighbors RV. The views of valley are remarkable. With the 50 amps of power, water and sewer on a level clean lot, we'll definitely return if in the area. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is a great little campground. We were very surprised when we found out they had 50 amps. The lounge was open and you get one free drink per person. The sites are gravel and level. The club sits up on a hill and there was wind on the day we arrived. This is a great stop for an overnight. We will stop here again on our way through California. We camped here in a Motorhome.
The rate reflects Passport America. I stayed here for a couple days and it was a very pleasant stop over. A place I look forward to returning to. There are some permanent residents but all the units are maintained and the spots tidy as is the entire park. It also has a small motel on the premises and the units, the manager told me, are being rented to people who are working in the area. The manager put me at the riverfront for the same rate as the spots up above since she had room and had no reservations for that area. It was just steps away from the river. The spot was level enough though not great. The hookups were easy to access. The spot was between two shade trees and she spotted me as I pulled into the spot to avoid hitting branches. The laundry room was clean and spacious with plenty of washers and dryers, and the price was good. I did not use the restrooms or showers but saw they were clean and well maintained. The WiFi was iffy. I wound up using my Verizon which worked well. In addition to the beach next to the park, there is a large deck with chairs and lounges for looking out over the river. The park was also easy access from and to the freeway and a short distance to central Needles. The only grocery was getting ready to close. Do your shopping before coming in or be prepared to drive into Arizona. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We'd had a long day on the road due to a major breakdown. Though it was only a little after 5 p.m., it was dark out. We were driving down this poorly lit, pothole-filled road looking for the local KOA when we came across Fender's. We decided we just couldn't drive a foot farther and pulled in. Though the office was closed, the manager did open up and guide us to a spot. She offered the help of her maintenance man the next morning to help with repairs to our trailer and also recommended a mobile RV repairman. We were parked between two permanent residents, both of whom were eager to chat with newcomers. Fender's is an older park, with gravel roads and grass (mostly dead) sites, but it had everything we needed for an overnight stay. The next morning, I walked our dog down to the Colorado River sites, and wished we could have stayed longer to get a river view site. We would stay here again. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Our one night rate is based on a 10% discount. The staff is friendly and helpful. Sites are interspersed among annual residents. They are friendly, and don't mine you camping near them. There is some grass at most of the sites, and shade. The sites are a little uneven. It's a decent spot to stay for one night. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Spent one night here after a long trip across the Mojave Desert. Lovely shaded spot on the Colorado River. Friendly staff. Very clean and spacious showers and bathrooms. River traffic was continuous and noisy (jet-skis and muscle boats) until after 9:00 PM; that was the only draw-back. Easy back-up into site with our 1880 Lance, and easy hook-ups. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
There were renovations going on in the bathroom area so it was really hot. Was able to get sat. signal and weak Wi-Fi from the campground. Site was OK, no big complaints. Better choices in the area. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
I can't give this place a rating of 10, only because it's a little bit on the funky side. But if you don't care about the frills, this is a terrific little place. We had a beautiful, shaded spot, right on the Colorado River, which was a most welcome surprise after a long day of desert driving. Fender's is nothing fancy, but it's friendly, in a beautiful spot, and the price is right. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
If you had a boat, this might be an acceptable place to stay. For RVs, we weren't very happy with it. Office is listed as open from 8am to 8pm. We arrived at 6:30pm on Monday to a closed office. Our site was cramped in between 2 other RVs (no breathing room between sites). The dump station was at the very back of the site, so our hose would not reach it without us having to park our RV with the rear end blocking the main driveway. Nothing to do at this campground, so you need a tow vehicle to go anywhere or do anything (unless you have a boat). Next morning, office still closed with a sign stating "back at 11am." What really surprised us is that there was no secure way to pay for the site! There was no mail slot leading to the office, and the box outside was not locked, meaning that anyone could pull out your envelope with your payment (check info, etc). This is a huge problem that is easily solved by simply creating a mail slot to the closed office! Our entire stay, the office was closed, so we had no contact or means to reach anyone in charge of the campground. Our phone calls to the office led to an answering machine. Being so close to our neighbors, we could not drive out of the campground from our pull-through site. We had to drive the other direction through the campsite and barely cleared obstacles (like other RVs and vehicles) while leaving. We camped here in a Motorhome.
The rating on this is primarily due to the fact that you get to park right on the river, a very nice location. The spots are undefined and we were glad it was not crowded. $40 seems a touch too high for this considering the amenities (or lack of) but it is run by a government entity and we know how they are doing financially. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Poor access roads (full of pot holes). Sites in the interior section are very close, kind of a parking lot with hookups. We were in site 15 on the river,.a shared site with a total of 10 spaces. Most of the spaces were in a line, like you would park at a curb, very tight and a lot of jockeying to get in and out. We had to ask the motorhome in front of us and the truck parked across from us to move in order to get out. Sites are dirt and gravel, mostly dirt. Campers were very pleasant and friendly with the exception of one group who thought we should enjoy his music and screaming kids well after quiet time and that "dogs on leash" didn't apply to him. If you're really into boating, this is a great place for you. Otherwise, there are better places to stay on the river. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
We stayed in the interior section which is like a dirt parking lot with sites close to each other. No sewer dump at the sites we had. If we ever went back to this location we'd stay out on the peninsula. This section butts up against a grass tent area. Again, might be trouble in the summer. Like a lot of places around the river it provides a kind of run down/old vibe to it. Staff was OK and other campers were fine but I bet this place is a zoo during the summer. If you're a young boater it might be great fun but be careful if you want calm/quiet (at least in the summer months). Oh, they have some funny rules such as must show proof of insurance and no ATVs, although they're constantly going through the park every day. Anything with a steering wheel is supposed to be OK. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
We have stayed at the park for the past couple of months enjoying the desert in the winter. Until recently The sites located on the Colorado river had no sewer hookups, the park would send a truck around once a week to dump your tanks though. Now that they have completed the sewer hookups this is a great place to stay. No more navy showers. You can't beat the winter long term rates of $200/Mo with 50 amp included in the price. We camped here in a Motorhome.

If you love being able to camp on a sand peninsula on the water (Colorado River), having a campfire and enjoying the beautiful weather and privacy- this is a treasure. Every time we stay, we hate to leave. This is the best of camping- good hiking, nearby historically sacred native meeting areas with many pictographs (Spirit Mountain area west of Laughlin), total privacy and interesting groups of snowbirds on the long term peninsulas. We may be one of them next year! We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
We did a quick overnight here a few years back, and really liked it. Our latest experience, while okay, wasn't quite what we expected. We paid extra for a premium "peninsula" site, and they directed us to site #12. What they didn't tell us was that "Site #12" is actually 4 separate sites in one very small driveway that ends against the river. We were the first ones into our 4-site spot, which was fortunate, because we had do do a lot of jockeying around to get a 40-ft. motorhome in the area to begin with (and the office told us we'd have no trouble at all), and then to get within a reasonable distance to the hookups was another battle. The next person in to our "Site #12" was a pop-up camper, and he had to park so close to us that he very nearly had to park under our awning. Very late that night another rig pulled in so our $35 went to give us the privilege of parking closer to more people than if we had just taken a pull-through site in the main part of the campground. Don't pay for a site on the "peninsula" unless you want to get really up close and personal with the other campers, and pay extra for the privilege of doing so. It's a nice enough park, but the peninsula sites were ridiculous. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Park Moabi may be the best deal on the Colorado River from November through March. Sites on the Peninsula section of the campground cost $200/month, including electricity (up to 50 amp), water, and a weekly honeywagon tank pumpout. The sites are reasonably level, on dirt or sand, and you can generally orient your rig for the best river view or access, depending on the length of your hookup connections. All sites are very close to the river. It can be windy and chilly, and park personnel, while friendly and efficient, are too understaffed to enforce pet clean-up regulations. Laughlin and Lake Havasu City are nearby. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Some sites are on the Colorado River but can only be reserved by large groups. Other sites
are not on the river and are basically a gravel parking lot separated by old railroad timbers. Very close to your neighbors on all sides. Entrance road is in bad shape, it is dirt and gravel with a large speed bump at the gate. Entrance station has a clearance of only 12'7". We stayed for one night as a stopover, charged us extra $4.00 beacause we had two kayaks on our roof. Even though we were not going to use them, the park rents them, therefore, they surcharged us for bringing our own. In addition, tried to charge us for our tow vehicle since we detached right before the entrance gate. Only did this because the road was so bad and we knew the sites were back-ins. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Nice, friendly KOA just outside Needles CA in the desert. No grass, but they did conveniently plant tall shrubs between sites to add the feeling of privacy. Very easy in/out with wide gravel roads. They have a pool, laundry, store, pet walk, and playground as most KOAs do. Only 11 of their sites are 50A so call ahead if that's important, e.g. running 2 air conditioners in summer! Both ATT & Verizon had strong signals. The only grocery store in Needles closes this week so plan to drive 20 miles to the closest major Walmart/Safeway if needed. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Good overnight spot. Some of the sites have shade, but most do not. Hookups are well-placed and reliable. Staff is friendly. No cable TV if that's important, but there are a number of over the air stations from both Nevada and Arizona cities. Sites are pull-through and spacious, and the streets are wide. Have stayed here before and will again when in the area. We camped here in a Motorhome.
It is a desert KOA. The sites are gravel and nicely open and level. The staff is friendly, the store is well stocked. Lovely view of desert, sky, and distant mountain . Nice pool and well maintained community room. A good overnight stop, and many guests were using this as a base for Laughlin. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This was a decent KOA. The full hookup sites were a good size for us. The sites are all gravel as well as the interior roads, so a little dusty. The hookups we're conveniently located. The staff we're great and friendly. The park had a nice feel and atmosphere to it. The pool was closed due to the winter season. There is a lot of open desert right by the park to take your dog for a walk or just go for a decent hike. You're right on old route 66. There's lots to see and do in this area. So we really enjoyed our stay. We would stay here again if in the area. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We couldn't drive any longer. Got what we paid for. Nice spot to RON (remain over night). Bathrooms were super clean! Sites were large and level, staff put us in a site where we didn't have to drop the toad. Nice folks, we'll be back--for one night. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Nice spot! Helpful staff and even let us into the closed pool (pretty cold! But great!). Laundry facilities were large enough to handle a couple weeks of craziness. Friendly folks wandering around, excellent landscaping. Well-stocked camp store. Overall, a very nice overnight stay. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Very pet friendly park with full hookups. Can be miserably hot in summer, but the manager always tries to find you a site with some shade. There's no cable, but stations from both Phoenix and Las Vegas come in over-the-air. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Decent KOA, fairly easy access. We had a quick overnight stop and it was sufficient for that purpose. The host (??) was friendly and very nice. She was younger and seemed like a manager. I'm not sure what her role was, but she was friendly. There is a lot of noise from the highway, this is not a vacation-type spot. The store was pretty bare, but had some decent route 66 souvenirs. There was a woman working in the store who was less than friendly, and I remember feeling a bit uncomfortable while looking around. Water pressure was good, power good. The pull-through sites don't have any privacy and I felt very much "on-display" when I stepped out in the morning. Not sure if there are long term people here, but there was an older man who sat outside his RV from sunrise til we left, who just glared at us. It was a well maintained KOA and we would stay again if we were driving through. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
We stayed here for a week visiting with friends. The staff is friendly, has a well stocked store, and nice level, private sites. Most of the monthly sites were filled with snowbirds except the sites without sewer. Very well kept park, quiet, and good views from our site. Would definitely stay here again. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
The friendly staff made this quick stop very nice. The park is in the desert, so there is lots of rock and few trees, and it is a clean and well kept park with a small store at the office. We did not have or need a reservation. Pool was closed for the season. We camped here in a Motorhome.
It was not so busy during the first hot days of October. The place is absolutely clean and very friendly staff. Free Wi-Fi with quite good reception at our site. Especially the nice, large, clean pool made us stay one night longer than we originally planned. We camped here in a Motorhome.
I stayed here as a one-night stopover. Park was easy to access. My site was wide, level and allowed for easy satellite reception from my dome. Staff was very friendly and helpful. They have a well-stocked store. I would definitely consider staying here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Very clean and nice. All gravel. Desert view and desert heat at 107 degrees. Some shade trees, some 50 Amp and all pull-through. It is a very nice peaceful park in the desert. The dog walk is desert gravel. They provide nice shrubbery in between sites for privacy. The pool was nice and private. Overall a good park in the desert. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
A great spot for a one nighter this time of year. The park is located just outside of town with easy access from I-40. It has lots of privacy, spacious sites, and friendly staff. Our only complaint is that they use a private company for their on-site Internet service that charges $2.95 per 24 hours. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
This was our second visit to this park. The sites are large and private with flowering hedges between each one. The staff was very friendly, and wi-fi worked well. They have a cute, little store. Everything was clean and neat. We'll be going back when in the area. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Friendly front desk, immaculate park, all gravel. Remember, this is the desert, so don't expect grass. Shade provided by walls of oleander between sites. Because Needles is so hot, I can't imagine staying here for any length of time. Rather, this is mostly a one-night stop-over on the way to somewhere else, and an excellent one at that. I'll definitely stop here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
A beautiful oasis in the desert for overnight or long term. Friendly, helpful staff, delicious on-site food concession. The most reasonable rates of any KOA we've ever stayed in; great value for the dollar. Definitely would stay here again any time passing through. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Stayed here on my way to Phoenix, and on the way back. Both times the staff was great. They were helpful and just couldn't do enough for you. The campground was neat and tidy, just as I remembered it a few years ago. Clean restrooms. I didn't get to use the pool, but it looked inviting. When in Needles this KOA is the place to stay. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Very clean, well kept, pleasant, and quiet campground. High bushes for privacy between sites. Large sites. We have overnighted here 2 times during our travels and enjoy this park. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
I stayed here for 1 day. Campground elevation is 568 feet. Maneuvering my 40 footer towing a dinghy in the park was no problem. Roads, sites and patio are gravel. Pull through sites hold a 40 foot motorhome with room on site for tow. My site 33 was a pull through site offered 30/50 amp service & full hookups. Wi-Fi costs $3 per day and cable is not available. I was able to receive AT&T Wireless 3G Internet and AT&T Cellular service. I received Dish Network 110/119 Satellite TV from dish on roof of motorhome. Campground is pet friendly. Walmart is 21 miles away and Basha’s is 4 miles away. The laundry is decent. I am unable to comment on other amenities due to not using them. This is my fourth time staying here over the last 4 years. I was booked to stay here 7 days but a mistake was made concerning the site I had confirmation for. I will probably will not return because of this, but this is a nice KOA and reasonable priced except for the Wi-Fi. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is the 2nd time we have stayed in this park as it is a very convenient stopping place. The park is easy to find, and offers nice big sites. The employees are friendly and glad to see you, and guide you to your site. Which is helpful since both time we have arrived after dark. We would stay here again. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
A welcome respite from the desert heat. Asked for a little shade and was assigned a site with full shade. Much appreciated in the heat that day. Sites are gravel with full hookups on the east side and partial hookups on the west side of the park. Friendly staff, good Wi-Fi and OTA TV signals. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This campground was a nice place to stop before heading across the Mojave Desert. The staff was very friendly and made a point of giving us a site with some shade in the late afternoon. For being in the desert, it had attractive landscaping. Everything was very neat and clean. Given the time of year, it was very quiet at the campground. We would happily return to this campground, but NOT in the SUMMER! We camped here in a Motorhome.
Very nice KOA. Clean and well kept. Very friendly and accommodating park staff. The pull through site was long enough for our 37' motorhome and jeep and we did not have to unhook. The grandkids used the pool. I would have rated a little higher if WiFi were free. Would stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is not your usual KOA. Has no crowded sites; all gravel sites are private with oleander bushes between them. Nice pool; did not use the laundry or restrooms. WiFi costs $2.95 a day from a private vendor; no cable TV but there are lots of stations from an antenna. Desert for walking your pets. Lots of quail and their babies running around. Although about 1/4 mile from I-10, you don't get any highway noise and just barely hear the rumble of trains in the distance. We will stay here again on our way west, and would recommend this to others. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Rate shown Good Sam discount. Site a gravel pull through, with trees and shrubs between sites for privacy. Wi-Fi was an option which I did not use. No cable TV, but plenty of channels off the antenna. Park borders desert with nice views of the valley and mountains in Arizona. Freeway nearby, but noise not a problem from our site. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Easy to access from I-40, nice park to overnight or for extended stay. Helpful courteous staff, wonderful BBQ in the evening. Stayed in 30A FHU pull through with motorhome and tow vehicle. All hook-ups connections convenient to orientation of motorhome, sites were level, separated by oleander bushes for privacy. Large pet areas. Will definitely stay again when in area. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This KOA park features rows of pull-through spaces separated by oleander hedges which afford a measure of privacy from one's neighbor. There is also a limited hook-ups area (water and 30 amp only) which is $3 less per night but lacks the privacy hedges. There is a short order restaurant on site which offers a limited dinner and breakfast menu and the night I stayed, a Monday, they had Bingo in the clubhouse. The roads and spaces are all gravel and it could use a refreshing, as it is worn thin throughout the park and ruts have developed in some places. It is quiet at night and overall a pleasant spot when passing through. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Total rip off. Stayed here about 12 hours, maybe. The bathrooms are typical KOA bathrooms: dismal and in need of much updating, they were relatively debris-free though. The front desk lady was very rude and seemed really put out at the audacity of people actually trying to stay at her park. For the princely sum of $38 you get water and electricity. Wi-Fi: only if you go to a website with credit card in hand to pay extra. TV: only if you have a satellite dish mounted on your roof. Sewer: not at this site. Would not stay here again and only stay at KOA's when we're dead tired and there's nothing else available. Hate these places and this place lived down to all the other KOA's we've stayed at. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Hadn't been here in years. The trees and bushes have been trimmed so that although there is still shade available, it is more limited than before. Sites are fairly level with some shade. Pets are very welcome, and there's a nice, though limited selection of groceries and RV accessories in the store. WiFi is available for a fee. We camped here in a Motorhome.
For a KOA that advertises itself as a "lush oasis in the desert" this was a let-down! While the staff was very friendly, they seem to let the place rundown. No cable TV, no Wi-Fi ,but still a premium price for an overnight stay. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Stayed here one night when travelling along I-40. Park almost empty as most people probably don't stay in Needles area when July temps get to 107 as it was when we stopped. Had 50amp so had AC running all the time. Good roof-mounted satellite reception from site #41. Staff very friendly. Would stay here again. WiFi is not free as in other KOA's. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Park has all pull through sites, some with shade and very well kept. Management very friendly and definitely customer service oriented. Close to the freeway and close to Laughlin Casinos if interested. Would definitely stay again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We stayed one night and found it to be a good spot for an overnight stay. There is no pavement so it is dusty if the wind is blowing and the Wi-Fi is $2.95/night. No cable TV but all other facilities are typical of a KOA park. There are lots of choices of RV parks in the area. Desert View is next door and offers the same $30/night but still has no cable. The site we were in was very long so you don't have to disconnect. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
We stayed here 1 month. Staff is very accommodating and friendly. Sites are level and all have an effective privacy hedge of oleander. Bingo in the hall every Wednesday. There is a convenient and affordable patio breakfast and dinner facility. Unfortunately the pool is not heated in winter. There is no spa. We will be back. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This park was perfect for the stop on our way to Grand Canyon from California. The park was extremely clean and the staff was very friendly. They have a little cafe on site that serves dinner and breakfast. We didn't try the dinner, but the breakfast was a great bargain. We ordered one plate and split it between the two of us. We stayed here in December, so there weren't many from the lake going crowd. However, this would be a great place to stop if wanting to hit the river in the warmer months. The Wi-Fi was $2.99, but we didn't try it out. They did have about 5 TV stations accessible via antenna. They didn't have a ton of amenities, but the place is what it advertises, and the price wasn't bad. Would stay again if in the area. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
A typical KOA, right off the highway, so there is highway noise. All gravel, but with huge flowering Oleander bushes separating the sites, so you have privacy between sites. Quail in the campground, fun to watch the families scatter around. No designated pet walk area, you have to use the desert behind it or next door. Level sites and plenty of room in the site to stay hooked up or park next to your trailer. Right down the road about 200 yards is a fancier looking RV park, with lots of big Class A's in it. It looked nicer, but this one was fine for us passing through. I think we were one of only 8 units in the whole campground that night. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
We had a very nice stay. Be warn though IT IS HOT. Furthermore, your GPS won't work properly so call for directions. A nice campground. Carla, the owner is very sweet. We loved our site it was completely private, bushes on both sides. It definitely did not feel like a KOA. There is not much going on in the campground but definitely in a great location for visiting the Mojave desert, Havasu Lake, Las Vegas, the Alamos. The sites are not really level but the air card worked perfectly however there was NO CELL phone Reception. Even with all the shade the satellite worked great. We would stay here again, just not in the summer, it is to hot. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Very easy on and off I-10. Super nice people and park is well maintained. Gravel sites, but nice and wide with good, wide roads. There are bushes between sites for added shade and privacy. We would stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Nice KOA right off the 40 Interstate. Gravel not paved. Friendly check in. This park is right on Route 66. Lots of Rt 66 stuff in gift shop. Nice pool and laundry. Pay WiFi, but not expensive. Some sites with nice view of lights of Laughlin. Close to town. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Needles is Needles, but at least this was a pretty decent park. It had just rained heavily that day so it was extremely humid and warm. The sites are all gravel, some have decent shade trees and some have oleander bushes for shade, and shade is critical in Needles. Park is well maintained; staff is very friendly and accommodating. It's good for a couple nights but not longer. We would stay overnight here again. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
We only stayed one nite here while on the road. It was clean and lots of room to walk dogs. Some shaded sites with easy acesss in and out. We used the pool with the temps being 114 the day we were there. Would stay here again if only for a few nites. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
We have stayed here many times on the way to and from Arizona and points east. It is a very nice, well-maintained KOA and the staff has always been friendly and helpful. The pull-through sites are long enough for my 41 foot MH plus towed vehicle and all the utilities work as advertised. The park is quiet and peaceful. A pleasant place to stay. Everyone is right about the price of fuel. Needles may have the highest prices in the country. What ever you do, don't plan on filling up here. We will stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Very nice people. The sites are mostly level and of a decent size. The sites are also flanked by trees and shrubs on both sides for privacy. No cable but there is good WiFi($). The road into the park (public road, not owned by the park) is very rough. We would stop here again. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
We stopped here overnight on trip from Morro Bay to Monument Valley. Nice welcome, I think from owner. Pleasant washrooms included showers and were clean. Looks like the owners are making an effort, successfully. Ideal stopover for trips from San Francisco/ L A to Las Vegas, Grand Canyon or Monument Valley. Would use again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
The park was clean sandy gravel in the desert. It is not near town, nor is it near the river. It was a clean stop for the night with easy access to the freeway. I would rate it as a place to stop for the night. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This place was great for a quick stop-over on my way home from Grand Canyon. The staff was very friendly and the lot was well designed for pull-through. Water pressure was great and the dump station was easy to use. The park was quiet from people though there was a lot of road noise from the nearby interstate. The showers only have curtains for privacy so I decided to use my own. Note that most GPS systems do not lead you here correctly for some reason even with a full address, so call for directions instead. Luckily for me the host warned me about that when I asked for an address. Sure enough, the GPS was off by several miles. I'm rating 9 due to showers, as I prefer locking private rooms but otherwise the site was exceptionally clean - not even a tumbleweed was blowing around. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Overnight stop, 2nd visit in two years. Easy to find and plenty of room for slide on TT. Gravel roads and sites with tall bushes between sites. Would stay again. Filled up at Westside Shell in Needles, and paid highest price for entire trip, $3.099/gal (and I needed 48 gallons for my F150)!! We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Clean RV Park, but needles is not exactly scenic. Wonderful management staff, large,
clean pool (go in summer and you'll REALLY appreciate it), and a playground. There are no spots that are truly shaded, but the management has planted barrier bushes between the sites that block most of the late afternoon sun. Brutally hot, but that is just Needles. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Convenient overnight stop near I-40 and right on the Colorado River. Met by helpful greeters who directed us to the kiosk for overnight guests. Just picked an open site, added the number to envelop with $30 cash, and dropped it in the slot. With temps near 100 degrees the pool was very refreshing after a day on the road. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
This is a great park with friendly staff. Stayed for two weeks. Great area for pets. Municipal golf course across the street. If I go back to Needles I will stay there again We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
The campground was next to the golf course, it was nice to be able to walk to the course. The spots are large and you have a table at your site. Wifi was good for a fee. The price for monthly rate was good and we would stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We stayed in a site at the waterfront, next to the pond and the Colorado river, which was very nice. Our site had shade trees as promised on the campground's website; really necessary this time of the year. Reasonable price (got Good Sam discount). Wi-Fi did work well, though not free but at a low price. The campground's shop is very OK. Would stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
I was disappointed in this park and would definitely look around if in the area again. Very expensive with few amenities, even with Good Sam discount. Rate did not include Wi-Fi or cable TV. This time of the year you really need shade and there was one tree in the whole park available. We took it, but not a lot of help. It sounded attractive to us because it was on the water, so thought it would be worth the price, except we were not on the water, just a gravel parking lot. Too much money just for an overnight. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Location and weather a plus in an older park that needs updating. Things not exactly dirty but very worn and old, and the bathrooms appear dirty. I did not have trouble with my dog, no dog park, but plenty of places to walk them around the park and the mobile home park which is adjacent. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Check in staff member not friendly, and acted as if I was interrupting her reading. No pet facilities. No grass for pet area, anywhere. If you travel with pets, go somewhere else. Not a good experience. Oh, the Wi-Fi is "pay by the minute." We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
This is a very clean, well run park along the Colorado River, with pull through and back in sites. The store has a good selection of camping gear, clothing, food, snacks, and RV supplies. Laundry facilities were very clean ($1.50 wash/$1 dry). Park staff was very helpful; even to suggesting we check out the sites for one with a shade tree. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Gravel roads and the pool was not heated at this park. Staff was friendly and accommodating. Very nice community golf course across the street. We will definitely stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
I have stayed here many times over the past 10 or 12 years. The park is well run and except for holiday weekends, is easy to get around in. On holiday weekends, the place is a zoo and can get quite noisy. I have camped in my motorhome and in a tent. I recommend this campground except on holiday weekends; e.g., Memorial Day. The last camped date is wrong because the web site didn't work properly. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This park is deceiving. When we first drove in, I thought "Oh, another parking lot." But after we were settled and started exploring, we learned that there are some really pretty, private, water-view and water-front sites here. So drive around all the loops before you make a selection. There is a great pool, with a nice view across the lawn to the boat traffic on the Colorado River. Also, there is a sandy swimming beach on the river, but the thing that really sold us on this park was the helpfulness and kindness of the staff. We had slide-out problems when we attempted to leave, which were eventually solved by one of the park staff members. He didn't have to help us but spent a good amount of time diagnosing the problem, as well as soliciting professional help from the community. Unlike other experiences we had in California RV parks, the staff at this one earned our respect. We would stay here again (even though it was 108 degrees when we arrived!). We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Pluses are it is easy to move about in, It is near the river and has a boat launch, and a large store. Negatives are after dark you are on your own and quiet hours mean nothing. We had two coaches next to us party after quiet hours with their dog running loose and no one cared but the staff were at our coach at 9 am to make sure we were out of the spot. The check out time was 5pm but as it was Friday on mothers day week end they needed the spot. We had told them we would be out by 10 am. I would say it might be a hit or miss type of campground. There are no big box stores in Needles so you have to go to Lake Havasu for Wal-Mart or Home Depot. If in area again might go to Havasu or the KOA. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Rest rooms and showers better and more modern than at many campgrounds. Young woman at desk very cordial. Nice store with a selection of items including food items. At nightly price would be nice if WiFi were free rather than $3. Not exactly easy to get to without paying close attention to direction in Trailer Life Directory. No signs posted on I-40 or on streets direction one to this facility. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Train noise was constant and loud. This RV park is for those that want to be near the activities the Colorado River offers, not a good one for just an overnighter. Level gravel sites, full pull throughs, antenna TV gets 6 channels, WiFi is $2.50 per day. Lots of campers in tents, which resulted in restrooms/showers not being very clean, due to over use. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Stayed as overnighter but it's really a destination park. Golf and boating. Friendly helpful staff. Sites were level with gravel. Easy in and out and adequate space. Has a nice pool and hot tub. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Stopped for a night while passing through. Wasn't expecting much. Wow! A nice surprise.
The park was mostly empty as the snowbirds were heading home. Right on the Colorado River. Nicely groomed, parklike grass area at the perimeter and along the river. A lot more large trees than you would expect in the desert. Sandy beach so be careful. The river is flowing fast. Great pool and spa. We now have a new place to stop on the run to Southern California. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
[ 7 / 10 ]
Park was almost empty when we visited in October. We backed into a site that left us about
20 feet to a sandy beach on the Colorado River. Roads and sites are combination of asphalt, sand and gravel. Park is dusty. Not many trees but you are in the desert. Park has a parking lot feel in most of it. Had a very nice and modern pool and spa. We had a fun time and will stay again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
[ 8 / 10 ]
Clean facilities, nice laundry. Lots of snowbirds. Next to 18 hole golf course. Fair areas for dog walking, down on river. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
This is a C2C CG and our rate was $0.00. The roads are paved and the sites are all river gravel and some are level. Water pressure and power was good. We stayed 4 nights and enjoyed the quiet and warm evenings with a nice view of the river. This is off season and no planned activities were scheduled as there were only about ten units in the park. The posted calendar for the season looked very busy. It appears to be an older resort that is like a ghost town in the off season. The management is very friendly and helpful. They have a nice rec. center with good WiFi and an excellent video selection. There is a nice family restaurant in an adjacent RV park. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Really pack you in here. Signage coming from I-40 not good so be on the look out 1/2 mile in. We have a 38' fifth wheel and had to park right next to the rig so no way to even sit outside without staring at the grill of our truck. This place is pretty empty yet they packed us all in a row, no view of the river either. No satellite reception. We're supposed to stay a week, but will leave early. Not a good fishing location this time of year as the river is shallow and current strong. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Friendly staff, but the park lacked signage to show where it is. We stayed here with Coast to Coast. Like prior reviews said, back in sites, a little cramped lengthwise. AT&T good date and voice, view of the river. We would return if only because of the rate. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is a friendly quiet park. The pool is clean, and the river offers nice sandy beachs, even a beach for your dog. My only complaint is that there is no groceries available nor is food served. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We camped here with Coast to Coast. It is a smaller park with tiered, back-in spaces. We have a 30-foot RV, and they put us in a 31-foot site. Damaged the front of our RV when trying to get out. Sites are level, and most overlook the river. Nothing here for kids. Water has fast current. Staff is friendly. No store on-site or nearby. Had to go to Fort Mojave for groceries. Would not stay here again. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
We are members of Colorado Rivers Association so it cost us "zero" to stay here except for the yearly dues. RPI pays $10 a night. This is a great place to just relax and watch the Colorado River as Needles doesn't have a lot going on. The managers spread the people out which was nice. The sites are level and the pool and hot tub are great. We enjoy picnic tables that do not tip! We will stay here again. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Campground river front sites are great, but not to many of them. It was quiet when we were there overnight as it was Labor Day. Wi-Fi did not reach the site but I had a Verizon card that worked fine. Campground is stepped up from the river. one row of campsites is above the next. Weather was HOT and HUMID. Campground was fine. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We've stayed here 2 times. Off I-40. CTC affiliate park. Nice pool and hot tub. Employees are friendly and nice. Lots of planned activites. Close to Laughlin & Bullhead City and Oatman. I would give it a higher mark but Wifi is available only in the clubhouse. Very inconvenient. Would stay again. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Stayed under C2C and were put up in the worst possible place on the upper level next to the trailer storage area. Luckily we were only staying one night. Road noise was pretty bad. Sites closer to the river would be better for a longer stay. Snowbirds abound and some of the sites were starting to look pretty tacky. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We've stayed here 3 times. Coast-to-Coast affiliate park. Nice pool and hot tub. Management people are nice, helpful. Potlucks, barbecues, breakfasts, ice cream parties, etc. Handy to Laughlin & Bullhead City. Oatman, too! We stayed one week, later two weeks, two weeks again. Only downside: Propane not available and propane trucks not permitted in. So come in full if you plan an extended stay. Otherwise, you have to drive into town for a refill. Aside from all that, we'll stay again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Price reflects monthly winter rate. We were here for 6 weeks in a peninsula site right on the River. Very clean, security very good, river access great, beach between each peninsula. Restaurant mediocre and over priced but good atmosphere, nice bar, etc. Route 66 at Topak restaurant excellent and close. Shopping in Needles about 10 miles. Will definitely spend more time there if we have opportunity. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Did not pay the nightly rate as we are staying here for a month. Great winter rates, nice staff, clean restrooms and great right-on-the-river sites. This is a remote RV park with best sites on the river away from the resort, so if your looking for anything other than beauty and relaxation, this may be too remote for some, but we found it to be our own little paradise. We camped here in a Motorhome.
What a wonderful place to stay with a group of friends and family. Full hook ups right next to the river and your own beach. What more could you ask for. The cost is not bad because the state parks charge $45 per night with nothing, but dirt at least here you have FULL HOOK UPS....WOW. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We stayed on the peninsula and it was almost completely empty. The sites were just sandy dirt, but surprisingly even being that close to the water, there was sewer hook ups. Other than being full hook up, the sites are plain and close together. Each group of sites is arranged in a Cul-de-sac fashion with 4 or 5 sites in a bunch. Each group of sites has a sandy beach that separates one group of sites from the next. The weather in summer was super hot, about 110 degrees during the day. We checked out the restaurant and bar area. We had a few drinks at the bar, but it was so hot, we didn't stay long. Not the resorts fault, but they should have at least installed fans to keep the air moving. It's not like they are not aware it gets hot there! The poor bar maid was sweating bullets. When we checked in, by not making a reservation we saved the $10 registration fee. And they did honor the 10% Good Sam discount. I may stay here again, just not this time of year, it was just too hot. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
It is a gem of a spot. We stayed on the peninsula next to the river. Great spot if you have a boat. There is a water park attached to this park. They have a nice little restaurant and rental cabins. Great park would stay here again. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This is a great spot for the family and dogs to be on the river. The "pods" accommodate 3-4 campers, but the location is great if not completely private. These peninsula locations cost more than the other RV sites that are closer to the office. The people are very friendly and there is a lot to do. We gave it a 7 only because of the cost. $50 per night is pretty steep and if you reserve online, it is another $10. At $60, we think this is overpriced. There are no discounts available. Would we stay here again? Probably because it is interesting and a terrific site on the river, but we sure wouldn't stay here for a long time. Two weeks is $700! I think they could at least provider some kind of discounts: AAA, Good Sam, Passport or senior discounts, or perhaps seasonal rates. Its a fun spot, though. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
We found Pirate Cove RV Resort by accident while traveling down Route 66 going to Oatman, Ca. We pulled in for a bite to eat and was amazed at this hidden gem of an RV Resort in California! The RV Resort was amazing and Pirate themed throughout. It was like visiting the Bahamas in the middle of the dessert. We decided to stay for the night and got a spot right on the Colorado River. We had a campfire and watched the most beautiful sunset ever!! The next day we decided to take a boat tour through Topock Gorge which is like a mini Grand Canyon. Our family was so amazed how well Pirate Cove RV Resort was put together and they did not miss any details. Also what was even more amazing is they had a Zip line that went across the Colorado River! I felt like a kid in a Peter Pan movie. If you are taking a ride down Route 66 this is a must stop RV Resort that can't be missed. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
I agree with the other people who made poor reviews. Nice long drive-ways, but you put your RV on the gravel beside. Advertise Wi-Fi, we were close to Hot Spot, but didn't work. No cable. Pricy for no cable and Wi-Fi. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Good Sam rating is 9/9/9.5, which must be self rated. Given the nonexistent restrooms and showers a 9 rating makes me wonder. We were parked in a gravel lot with a view of a storage building. I could not recommend this park to anyone. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Stayed at the resort during the Christmas holiday. After making an online reservation for a week and paying in full I was told I owed an additional $27 for electric, this was after I stayed one night. The explanation for the charge was “this is a new policy.” The resort web site is not correct, hot tub and pool are not heated and are usable. The resort has a distinctive smell of open sewer by the homes near the pool and showers. ATVs, dirt bikes and golf carts roam at all speeds throughout the resort during all hours making it unsafe to walk. RV sites are mixed in with single wide prefab homes. If you neighbor has an ATV you will be polluted with noise day and night. Paperwork and signatures for registration is mind boggling. I guess it is needed in case you get run over by an ATV. Restroom facilities were clean and the Christmas Party organized by fellow camper was memorable with friendly guests. Sites are level and spacious. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Great to stop in for a night. Site had plenty of room, was all red rock, no concrete patio or shade, but again we were just passing through and it was easy in and out. Clerk at front desk was friendly and helpful. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This park is geared to manufactured and park model homes. The empty spaces are available for RV's. There is only one restroom, centrally located within the beautiful pool area. I did not see any showers, but they may be there. No cable TV, most residents had satellite dishes. All sites had a picnic bench. HD TV was available on our RV antenna. All of the major networks had a good signal. Staff was friendly and very helpful. Boat ramp available. Reasonably priced for a resort style RV park. Office closes at 5PM, and gate requires a pass code. Best make reservation if arriving after 5pm for gate code, and WiFi passwords. Would stay here again, very nice. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Woodalls should be ashamed for rating this RV park high! This is NOT a 5 star resort. The ads for this RV park are VERY deceiving. The "RV" portion of the park is actually in a storage unit-- sites are in a cinder strip between a 10' security fence and storage facility. The pool, though it does exist is actually in a a full time mobile home park not the rv park. The lagoon featured in the ad, is only accessible through the full-time mobile homes-- NOT the description in the add or in Woodalls. We only stayed here because we were tired. I would not stay here again! The sites that do exist as stated above are cinder--no landscaping and the view (besides the neighbors sewer hook-up) were of the fence and the storage unit. There are no public restrooms or showers available to the rv park -- don't expect to use those. (these may be available in the full-time moblie home park) We had to request a picnic table and use blocks to level. All in all, NOT a place we will go back to. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Great park; I love staying here! A beautiful park with all of the amenities! The only problem I have found is that cell service is spotty in a lot of the park. The staff are very friendly and helpful. You will really enjoy staying here if you are lucky enough to find a vacancy. We camped here in a Motorhome.

A very nice park. Staff friendly and helpful. This park is for modular homes and RV's. Seems like RV's are being phased out as new homes are placed. Swimming pool is beautiful but not heated. Spa is great. We stayed here five months. We would return if space is available. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Mostly a community of pre-fab homes. In the center is an gravel area with hookups. Swimming pool seemed nice enough, but the rest of the area was desolate. We thought the name Palms River Resort might give us a view of the Colorado river but no view. We had to walk by people's homes to get a glimpse of the river. The only place for garbage was way up towards the storage facilities; there were no other receptacles available. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We've been on a 3 week road trip in our new RV. Of all of the parks between CA and TX we stayed at this was by far our favorite. We originally were only going to stay one night on our way home but liked it so much we stayed 2. This park felt like a resort. We have two boys 7 & 5 and this place was perfect for them. The pool made us feel like we were on an island instead of the desert (palm trees, lots of shade, misters, bbq grills pool side). We spent the hottest part of the day in the air conditioned game room playing pool, shuffle board, air hockey, foosball, and Ms. pacman (and laundry!). The kids favorite part was the inflatable tall waterslide: we couldn't get them off it! There were more families here than we've seen at other parks and the kids enjoyed making new friends. Ask for a space by the pool!! Only negative was the river beach area. We hoped to play in the river, but without water toys the pool was more appealing. (Great place to bring a boat: wish we had one!!) The beach was clean, just really small and right next to the boat launch. There was a cool deck area to hang out that's overlooking the river though. We'll definitely stay here again when we're traveling on I-40. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We turned uo to this little oasis late and the gates were closed, thought this looks so expensive but rang number on gate, lovely lady came to let us in and took us to resort style site. Spent night in pool had a lovely poolside BBQ, soaked in spa, saw gym, games room even children's water slide, tennis court, and basketball court. Do yourself a favor and spend time at this oasis on the Colorado river; you won't want to leave. Believe it or not this was the cheapest but by far the best RV camp we stayed in over our 22 days on the road. We camped here in a Motorhome.
WOW! This is the nicest park I have seen by far. The manager that helped us in the store and with our reservation was very outgoing and polite. She has a great up-beat personality and was very helpful. She gave us a tour of the park which was totally amazing! The club house,pool,spa area was beautiful. You can see it a tight running park and very well maintained. The manager told us that they have year round activities and events. Some at the park and some outside the park. We were scheduled to stay only 2 nights but ended up staying a week. The Palms River Resort is were we will spend our summer when we can. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Very clean park and friendly staff. The pool area is very clean and well maintained, however, the pool is not heated which was very disappointing as the pool area is so inviting. Wi-Fi coverage is good. No cable TV, however, they have a great dvd collection in the resort office that you can rent for $1/night. We camped here in a Motorhome.
The park in nice. Very clean.The staff friendly. The RV sites were on a gravel slope which required some adjusting and a long way from the river. The Wi-Fi was excellent. The pool heat was not working so the pool was slightly above freezing. The spa required you to turn on the heat which took a half an hour before it warmed. I probably will not return. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
The GPS does not help find this park. It is easy enough if you don't follow the GPS but use the signs. This park started as a mobile home community. The RV spots are in vacant areas. However the RV spots are not between mobile homes but is sections within the park. The spaces are wide and open no landscaping at the sites. It is a gated park along the river. Nice office and staff the people staying in the park are very friendly and were invited to join any of the activities during our short stay. we should stay again and plan for a loner stay next time. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Palms River Resort needs to be your 'Destination Resort' if you want to spend time in the warmth of the Southwest. We found it by accident, and it is one of the best accidents we have ever had. We were headed to Phoenix, found an ad, made a call, and you can say we are HAPPY CAMPERS !! Palms offer extra large sites, friendly managers, great activities, the Colorado River, a general store, beautiful and clean bathrooms, game room, nice gym. All in a gated community that feels like home. Everyone we have met here is friendly, and we believe that is a result of the NEW management that we were told recently came on (Fall of 2011). They and their friendly staff enjoy creating a feeling of community, with Taco Tuesdays and Pancake Breakfast on Sundays that make for a fun time of getting together and meeting people from all over. Wednesday is bingo night at .25 cent cards. We came mid December and found out right away that they had fun things planned for Christmas including a potluck and gift exchange. Then the resort owner (another friendly guy) throws a big New Year's Party for the guests with catered food and music. The resort is half RV spots and half vacation home owners. Very family and pet friendly, great dog walk area, lots of things to do and easy access to highway, Needles, Bullhead City, Ft Mohave and Ft. Havasu. Just 1.5 hrs to Vegas! This is high living and most assured a 5 STAR RESORT that will be our winter destination from here forward. (just don't tell too many people or we wont have room for all our friends to come here every winter) If you have not heard of this place yet, hold on because you will. RV park life does not get any better than this. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This was an overall great resort to stay. They have new signs out front stating that it's under new management. We had the pleasure of meeting them. The couple was very positive and had an up-beat attitude. The park is very well maintained and looks very appealing. They have large spaces back in and pull through any RV will fit in. The club house and pool area is the best I've seen. I will for sure come back and stay here again. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
We stayed here on the midway point from San Diego to the grand canyon. We were here on a Saturday night. This is primarily a residence based (ownership) location. Lots of ATV activity. Our space was a little small for our 35 foot plus towed. Really upscale. The kids loved the game room. They have a new pool,and jacuzzi. The resort is right on the river with a small beach okay for kids. The river has a high flow rate so the beach area is recessed for safety. Small area but okay for young kids. Don't let them swim out to river though. No trash bins nearby, real pain. The office is real nice and well stocked. It was warm 70 in November. Was a nice overnight. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We stayed here on Thanksgiving weekend, on our way south. It was busy with residents using there ATV's, lots of places to ride. The Wi-Fi was not working when we arrive. We informed the manager and she was all over the service provider. No CATV but good antenna reception. Great night sky's for star gazing. Great overnight rate. We would stay here again. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
This is the one of the best RV resorts i have ever had the pleasure to stay at. If you are traveling through Laughlin or going through needles on I-40 take the river road exit and you are there. These are the largest sites I have ever seen. Has a great store and wonderful pool and club house. This place is a 10++++ has excellent monthly rates. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Office was not open during posted hours in advertising. We waited nearly half an hour for someone to open the office more than 2 hours after the posted opening time. Daily message boards had not been updated in over a week. We requested a 50 amp pull through and were told none were available. The road to the site we were assigned was narrow, and partially blocked with other campers personal inflatable toys spilling out into the road. Backing into the space was very difficult. There was no shade, everything was gravel or concrete, and the outside temperature was 108 degrees. Once we had struggled to back in, we found that the oleanders blocked access to the sewer connections for our site. Furthermore, the power box was mounted too far back in the stand and we could not connect a power cord at all. Again, due to oleanders, we had to park on the wrong side of the pad, or scrape up the side of the rig with no room for the pop-out. When we pulled out and returned to the office, and requested a refund, suddenly, there was a 50amp pull through space available. The manager was grumpy and let us know she was upset that she had had to work that morning, and had gotten hot and dirty (doesn't that come with the job?). Not wanting a repeat of the electrical connection problem, and another jaunt through the narrow lanes, we simply asked for a refund and left the park. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Do not rely on GPS. Our brand new Garmin Nuvi had us at an incorrect location. When you get off at River Road Cutoff from the freeway, look for their sign and read what it says. We glanced at it as we went by but kept following the GPS, which had us on a wild goose chase. So, I'd say this place can be confusing to find, as are most of the parks off this old Needles Hwy. Gates close promptly at 5pm so be sure you have a gate code before office personnel go home. The lady who took our reservation was very nice. Lady checking us in was grumpy and ready to be done for the night (4:40pm). This place, in my opinion, is really not laid out well for typical overnight RV guests. It is mainly an owner-occupied resort, set up for owners in the park. At first they had us in a site way away from the pool and activity center although grumpy lady said it wasn't a bad walk to get to the pool. But, for grandparents toting a grandchild and all the stuff it takes for a child to go swimming, it was quite a walk. So, she reluctantly said there were a couple (more expensive) sites across from the pool and activity building. We checked them out and decided it would be easier on us to have one closer to the pool. The sites are essentially an open gravel field with hook ups: nothing else. Note: there is no cable TV available for overnight guests. There was a weathered wood picnic table on the driver's side so after we got hooked up we hauled it over to the right side to use. The pool, spa, game rooms, etc., were very nice. Husband says the pool was cold. Signs everywhere saying pool area and activity building (including laundry and showers/restrooms) closed at 8pm. That's kind of early for overnighters who need these type of facilities after 8pm. The restrooms at the activity building were marked "Kane" and "Wahane." After going back to my RV to use restroom, I was determined to find one at the activity building/pool area. Took a chance and went in the one marked "Wahane" and lucked out: it was the women's restroom! Opened another unmarked door and found it was a private shower area that smelled very badly in there. We showered in our RV. The advertised water slide and bounce house was not up as yet. They should say "seasonal" when they advertise this to people bringing children. There are a couple of basketball hoops inside the tennis courts with one inflated ball for the kids to use and the rest were old and deflated. No instructions as to where you might find another ball to use. I imagine the facilities are very convenient for people who live in the park models and have handy golf carts to drive around. But, this IS NOT for the overnight camper. I would not stay here again and prefer to stay at a place that was developed specifically for the campers passing through. We camped here in a Motorhome.
If you want peace and serenity, this park is not for you. Apparently they have a policy for off-road vehicles but it is not enforced. There was a constant drone of motorcross bikes and dune buggies the entire weekend going in and out and around the park. Common courtesy and respect for each others enjoyment of the park does not exist. It's too bad, because this is a beautiful park and could have been very enjoyable. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We visit Needles every year and tried this park for the first time. It is a park model park on the Colorado River that couldn't sell all the sites, so they converted some to RV sites. The entry is a little narrow and necessitates a wide turn by a big rig. Park is very clean and quiet. We found the residents to be friendly. The sites are red volcanic rock which are long enough to handle our 45' rig with a tow. All interior roads are paved. Utilities are modern and well placed. Some sites had a table, but ours did not, wish it had. Everything looks new as park is only 4 years old. The pool, which is not heated, is gorgeous. The spa was great after a long drive. Nice clubhouse with a big screen TV and entertainment games. I asked a resident if he knew how to access the WiFi as I forgot to get the access code. He called the manager, who was off duty, and she brought the code to me. That is great customer service! The WiFi is the best that we have had in a long time. This place worked great for us. We will return. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Lovely place but a mixture of vacation homes for boaters and 4 wheelers. Very very clean with lots of amenities but over night might feel like a sore thumb. We found it to be just fine as everyone was very friendly. It was pretty empty for RV's. Would stay again for sure. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This park is ok. If you like to swim, the pool area is amazing. It's beautiful. We have two dogs that love to romp and hike. There wasn't much for them to do. There is a very small beach area where they could play, but it was under the condition that no one else was here (we understood this). The restrooms were very far away from our site. The site was completely gravel. We probably will not stay again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Manufactured Home park that added RV spaces. The spaces are huge. The view is beautiful. Large pool, two hottubs, and kiddy pool. Tennis/basketball court, FREE gameroom, workout room. Would have given the park a 10 but pool not heated, hottubs were not kept even warm. Only after complaints by many rv'ers were they turned up some but not enough. Showers are just two small rooms not a bathhouse of any kind. Only 2 washers and 2 dryers. Still a nice place to stay. Staff very nice. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Park is a manufactured homes park, that due to the economic downturn the owner turned 40 plus sites into a RV parking. Monthly rates are very good for what you get facility wise. The sites are very big, all red rock gravel with nice view of distant mountains and beautiful entry way with a gate. Pool with 2 heated spas and heated kiddie pool, exercise room, game room, tennis courts and practice golf nets all top notch. Office help is great. WiFi is sketchy but free and is being worked on.The only negative is that the large pool is not heated. ATV, four wheelers, two wheelers and the sand buggies are out and the noise is sometimes very loud and the park is noisy till way past quiet time, so that is why it was not rated higher. We camped here in a Motorhome.
