The base is very easy to get to from Hwy 58. You will go under a train trestle just off of Hwy 58, the height sign says its 14’. The park is very clean and the camp host very welcoming. You share the hook-up area with the neighboring site which makes the driver’s side slide outs of your RV inches from your neighbors. We used 2 electrical cords due to the length from the back of our rig to the electrical box. There are 2 roads inside the park, a perimeter road and an interior ring so rigs can pull in from either direction. Parking of your TV or toad should NOT protrude onto the perimeter/interior roadway. There was an individual in a Class A who parked his toad in front of his rig on the interior road, while we were there, which impeded our ability to stay on the roadway. We enjoyed our stay and will return.
Close to Disney World and Universal Studio. Just past a KOA Campground. The people were friendly. This is a private, family owned park. They have 282 full hook-up sites, 30/50 amp. The park looks a bit dated, but appears they are trying to update it by building vacation cabins to purchase, then rent out when you're not there. The roads were VERY narrow and the sites close together. At 60' long, if anyone had been parked on the road or in front of their rig we wouldn't have been able to get by. I had no choice but to drive on their grass in order to get our rig in. I'm not saying I wouldn't stay here again, just be aware before you commit to coming here if you’re a big rig. It's right next to Hwy 4, so there may be road noise. Amenities include a heated pool, exercise room. During the Snow Bird season, they have scheduled activities, a Saturday morning pancake breakfast and afternoon hot dogs. The laundry room is open 24/7 with 16 washers and dryers.
This was our second time here. The 1st night we were in the overflow area. Which wasn't bad at all. We moved to site 41 the next night. Won't do that area of the park again! The electrical box is on the concrete slab you're supposed to park on. It was a major pain to try an get the 5th wheel on the slab and not hit the electrical box (several boxes have been hit and were bent over). The park is close to a lot of things to see and do. We found we love with Tucson and will definitely be returning.
This was the 1st time to stay at an Escapees park. We only stayed overnight and were not impressed. The sites for over night guest are all back-ins and the entire area is gravel. There was an additional $3 charge for electricity. Considering how far off Hwy 93 it is, the next time we'll stay in Wickenburg.
We looked at the resort with the same name, first. What they had available was in the employee housing area. With a total length of 60' maneuvering around their roads was not worth risking damaging our rig. This Furnace Creek NPS Campground was much nicer then that resort or Stovepipe Wells. It was great not having to run our generator and having water & sewer hook-ups. The campground was very easy getting in and parking. We will definitely return.
The FamCamp is right next to the main gate. The BX & Commissary are close enough for a good walk to. They also have Diesel on base. All the sites are gravel back-ins with grass and well spaced so you're not on top of each other. Plan on the office being closed when you arrive as their open hours are very odd.
The first RV park as you're coming into town from the west, and the last RV park if coming from the east. Full hook-ups, large pull-throughs with picnic tables. Free Wi-Fi worked OK with some interruptions. OK for an overnight stop. Entire park is dirt/gravel. Wouldn’t want to be here in high winds. They offer absolutely no discounts of any kind, which made it one of the most expensive parks we’ve stayed at. We’ll be trying the RV park at the other end of town on our return trip.
Our visits to Pahrump have been to visit family. Our first time here was in Dec. 2012, we had site #23 and loved it. It was quiet and right next to the laundry & showers. Our Dish Tailgater & Verizon MiFi 4G worked great. Our next visit was in Feb.2013, this time we had site #155 which had constant traffic going by and about as far from the laundry & showers as you could get. It did have a “lake view” which you get to pay extra for if that’s your thing. The staff and guests have been very friendly on each visit. It appears to be very family & dog friendly with enough things to keep the kids happy. The laundry and showers were clean. If you don’t have your own Wi-Fi, or satellite TV and you want it you’ll have to pay extra for that also. Only one park out of the 28 parks we've stayed at over the past year and a half of full timing did not include free Wi-Fi & cable TV. It is a “pretty” park and appears to be a good place for families with kids, and those that are on “vacation”; however, there are other RV parks in the area that may be better suited to the non-gambling full-timer who is only in need of laundry, Wi-Fi, cable, or a place to rest before moving on.
Manager was very friendly and knowledgeable. Was OK for just an overnight stop while passing through. Site was very difficult to get into. Some sites looked very trashy. Could hear Hwy noise all night. Using this park will depend on what you're looking for and what bothers you. There are no restrooms/showers. This is a mobile home park that is right off Hwy 178/bus 395 with overnight spots for RV's.
Pads for your rig are very narrow. Check sites first to be sure you can make your turns without hitting anything. Depending on the site you choose (pull throughs) you WILL run over there concrete slab if your rig is large - 37'+. If you need to use there showers be sure to check them first. I took pictures of there showers/restroom to prove how filthy they where when we were there.
Park is nothing special & overpriced. They charge an extra $1 day (per pet) even for cats. There "free" internet is only at the office area. We will not return to this park nor advise anyone else to use this park.
This is a fantastic park and the people are very friendly. This is a Cal-Am Resort. This resort has impressed us so much that we are now looking for other Cal-Am Resorts to stay at. We used our Passport America 50% discount for our stay. There are so many things to do here that you can't say you’re bored with nothing to do. If you’re in need of some separation then hubby can do his thing and the wife can do her thing.
Parked here to see the Military Show before going to the coast. Park was full of kids so the noise was up, which should be expected with kids around. The play area and pool were great. The trees provided lots of shade which meant no grass, just dirt under the trees. Someone before us left their ashes on the ground next to the tree, which our 3 yr old granddaughter quickly found.(Thanks SO much.) The staff was constantly keeping up with cleaning due to the park being full. We enjoyed ourselves and will come back.
We were in site #33. Enjoyed the patio & furniture (once we put our chair pads on). Didn't use the barbeque (it was filthy). The site hookups were on the side with the patio & grass which was very awkward. The only other problem we had was when we were leaving we had to back out of our site into the empty site behind us (Thank Goodness it was empty!)because we could not make the turn going forward without wiping out there fencing & taking out the vehicles across from us. We didn't use the casino as we are not gamblers, just the campground as our usual park in Chico was full.
Was a bit concerned about getting into this park when I looked at it on Google Earth. Found it to be easy to get in & out of with our 37' 5th wheel. Their internet worked fine as did our Verizon. I gave them a 5 because there's nothing special about this place. It's just an OK place to park while visiting relatives. Was told when we arrived to make certain our bikes where locked up REAL GOOD because there have been bike thefts in the park. Their posted office hours are Mon-Sat 9am-6pm & Sun.9am-1pm. However, I don't think the office hours are adhered to. I called on a Saturday @ 2:30pm (well within the posted 6pm closing) and was told the office is closed and to call back on MONDAY. I guess they're closed on Sunday even though they're supposed to be open.
