Price reflects weekly rate and Value Kard discounts. This is a very nice park and well managed. The owners are very friendly and helpful. The grounds are nicely kept. Nice large areas between sites with a picnic table and fire pit. We used this RV park as a base for riding our ATVs and seeing Craters of the Moon NM. The location of the park was right on one of the designated ATV routes in Arco, which made it very convenient. We don't usually stay in KOAs because they are usually higher prices and some are old. With the Value Kard and the weekly discount, turned out to be a good buy and the park is newer. If you are in the area, don't hesitate to stop and stay.

This is a nice park with lots of large shade trees and friendly owner. However, the biggest issue with this park is the layout. When you come in to register, you have to go back out to get to your spot. If you are coming in after hours and/or in the dark, it would be very difficult to figure this out. Turning radius for a big rig with a toad are tight. We almost had to unhook the toad to get into our spot. Hookups are way at the back of the site. With our 40' MH + full-sized pickup, we barely fit into the site and had to extend every bit of our electric cord to get electricity. We never could connect to the cable since we didn't have enough wire. Wifi was strong and good. Good to have a nice park, however, in a remote place like Vale.

This is a nice park and well maintained, but we had some issues with it. First, the bathrooms and laundry are located near the entrance, so are not convenient and centrally located. And there is only 1 bathroom for the whole park. There are grass between the sites, but the sites are still fairly close and there are no picnic tables. Our site had a small fence protecting a wet area right at the entrance to our site. We had quite the time pulling the 40' motorhome into the site since on the other side was the tall pipe for the utilities. It took us several tries to get the right angle. The other problem was with the slides out, we couldn't park the car in the spot provided and had to wedge that in as best we could. There are many long-term residents, but they do keep up their areas. This place was OK for a few days , but I wouldn't want to stay much longer than that. Rate reflects Good Sam/AAA rate.

This is a nice park, far enough away from the freeway to be quiet. The staff is friendly. There are many semi-permanent residents, but they keep their sites up. Nice patch of grass between sites, but would have been nice to have a picnic table. Rate reflects Good Sam discount.

This park has good things and bad things. The good thing is that it is close to the freeway, yet noise isn't a big problem. Another good thing is the nice pool and friendly staff and the mature shade trees. The bad thing is that it is an older park, laid out for shorter units. We had difficulties making corners with our 40' motorhome and toad. They do give you a picnic table, but it is old and very weathered. Also there are many semi-permanent residents, some of whom take pride in their site, some of whom don't. When we were trying to leave, we could barely squeak by between vehicles parked on the sides of the access roads. Oh, and those shade trees? Good luck getting your satellite. Rate paid reflects Good Sam discount.

We wanted to stay in Black Canyon City, but the RV park we contacted didn't return our calls so we found Cordes Junction and what a nice find it was! The motel/RV park is very well kept. They have 10 pull throughs that they save for short timers. Their more long-term RVers are at one end of the facility and separated from the pull throughs. We were pleasantly surprised how quiet it was. There also is a very good diner on the property which is very nice since the town there doesn't have much for dining. The park is also easy access from the freeway. The Wi-Fi was OK, but as time went on, I had trouble hooking up to it. We didn't use the laundry or bathrooms which were up at the motel. The staff was friendly. If we are through that area again, we will stay there again.

We were one of the few more transient RVers in the park. Most of the sites are taken by folks who rent their spots on a monthly/yearly basis. I don't think they could have squeezed any more sites in since they even made 3 sites that are really part of one of the streets for overnighters. We did get a pull through which was long enough, but skinny. There are only 4 garbage receptacles and they fill and overflow fast. The people were friendly, the horses were fun to look at, lots of trails right outside the gate for riding horses, ATVs, or hiking, but you were sure squashed in together. Got to know your neighbors VERY well. But in Wickenburg, you don't have a lot of choice. Price shown is a per night price with discounts.

The rate quoted is with 1 night on Passport America and the weekly rate. This is a beautiful park, close to the freeway for easy off/on, but no freeway noise. Their overnight sites are nice, long, level sites with a concrete patio. The park has a number of snow birds that stay all season so there are lots of activities going on. Everyone takes very good care of their sites and are very friendly. From our site, we had a beautiful view of Saddle Mountain to the southwest. I rate it at a 9 and not a 10 because we found dog poo at our site (which never did get cleaned up), the Wi-Fi costs $$ (but is VERY good and worth the price), and the park is a 20-30 minute drive from shopping/eating. We would definitely come here again if in the area.

This is a beautiful park with large pull throughs, big enough for even the biggest big rig. We love this place and return year after year. It is set in the an orange grove and sometimes you can even pick your own oranges. It has easy access to Hwy 58 so easy on/off. I didn't give it a 10 because their Wi-Fi was weak where we were located and the sites are just gravel. Price reflects Good Sam discount, but using a credit card. If we had paid in cash/check, it would have been $2 less.

First, let me say that this is a beautiful park right on the river. If you want to go for a walk/run, there is a nice park nearby and marinas. Wi-Fi was very strong. The only problem is that all the sites are back-in and no sewers. There is one central dump station, however. Your site is fairly large and includes a picnic table and a place to put your towed/towing vehicle. The staff is very congenial. We did find some dog droppings near our hookups and our neighbors were a little noisy. We were there on a Saturday evening and someone had a very large bonfire on the beach at 1:30 am. The park wasn't too hard to find from I-5 so not a bad place for an overnight. Price reflects Good Sam discount and taxes.

We were here just for an overnight so didn't get a good feel for the park. We were out in the new area since we wanted to get our satellite. The new part consists of pull-through with smaller trees. Sites were level, but the level area was only big enough for our motorhome, but not our towed. The sites have a concrete patio and a picnic table along with grass. The park was well kept. The sites in the trees looked very nice if you didn't want satellite. The Wi-Fi was weak where we were located. I marked it down since I thought the price was high. The price shown includes the Good Same discount and taxes. It is easy off/on the freeway so a good place to stop for the night.

We stay in this RV park when we go between Bend, OR, and Reno, NV. Yes, the park and the golf course are out in the middle of nowhere, but that's part of what makes it nice and quiet. It is well kept, people in clubhouse where you register are very friendly. There are nice grass areas between the sites and lots of room for slides and awnings. Wi-Fi strength is a bit poor. They have recently installed a nice "nature trail" that loops out of the RV park. We don't golf, but the golf course looks very nice. The road in is a little narrow and does have a couple of cattle guards. We will continue to return to this place in the future.

Everything about this park is mediocre and dated. First, they keep the registration locked and have to buzz you in. Does that give a good feel about the area? It is a gated park so it is difficult to get a big rig in and out of the gates. Also, getting a big rig about the park is challenging. The sites are packed in. Some sites did have a picnic table, but not ours. They do have trees, but they make it more difficult to put out slides and turn corners. Then there is the military jet noise that is VERY loud at times. At least they stop in the evening, but they start up again at 8 AM. I think we will find a different RV park next time we are in LV.

This is an excellent RV park. The owners are very friendly and helpful. There are lots of large shade trees for those warm summer days. Many of the sites have patios with nice plastic/metal picnic tables. The grounds are immaculate. Wi-Fi was good, cable was good. Couldn't have asked for more. We will be back.

Whenever we are in this area, we always stay here. The owners are very friendly and helpful. The facilities are clean and neat. If you want to ATV, this is your place since you can ride right out of the park and riding your ATV is welcome if you observe the rules. Wi-Fi worked well, bathrooms & laundry room are immaculate. There is great pride of ownership here. The only reason I don't give it a 10 is because the trees are still short so you are essentially parking in a big gravel parking area. There is, however, some nice areas of grass and a nice area for campfires. We will be back.

This park is very busy most of the year. It is about 10 miles north of Moab off a busy highway. The price reflects their "premium" view sites. We did have a nice view of some of the arches in Arches National Park and could see the La Sal Mountains. However, the "premium" sites are in a new area so essentially it is like camping in a gravel parking lot. But if you have a bigger rig, say 40' plus a toad, they will tell you you can't fit anywhere else which isn't true. The park attracts many people who mountain bike, ATV, and dirt motorcycle. The staff isn't very friendly and is very busy with the store/gas station so don't have much time to help if you need something. There is no cable, but we had no problem getting our satellite since there weren't any big trees nearby. We would stay again.

This is a very adequate RV park. The sites are very long so if you don't want to unhook, you don't have to. It does have some snowbirds that stay throughout the winter. There is a restaurant/bar/casino across the street that is OK. The RV park has a fairly fully stocked store. If you like to ride your quads, you can leave right from the RV park. We stay there on our way back and forth to AZ.

This is a no frills RV park that is in association with the fairgrounds. The sites are either scattered around or out in a large gravel parking area. But the price is right. We were lucky enough to get a site in a more shaded area. We did ask for a picnic table and one was delivered in a few days. The WiFi is very weak however, and spotty. What is fun is that you can go to any of the events they might be having at the time and not pay to park. While we were here, they had a gun show and an RV show along with horse events (some flies). The fairgrounds are out of town quite a ways and has no laundry facilities.

This is a gem in the desert. The park is very neat and tidy with HUGE sites. The staff is extremely friendly and very helpful. The people here are also very friendly. We enjoyed out stay very much. I only marked it down slightly since there is no shade. Has small trees, and the park is dusty. We had our quads and the park is very quad friendly: you can ride right out of the park. We will be back.

The rate shown is the weekly rate. We love this park. The people and staff are very friendly. The sites are very large and can accommodate your RV and all your "toys". We do like to ATV so enjoy the fact that we can ride right out of the park. The cafe is good, but closes the first week of March. The local grocery is sufficient. Gas is in Quartzsite. I only rated it down 1 is that it is a bit dusty since everything is gravel. We ended up staying here 3 weeks and will come back.

This is a good site for an overnight when going north or south through Nevada. The sites are long enough for our 40 foot MH and a full-size pickup being towed. The sites are a little out of level, but OK. I even got Wi-Fi out in the RV park (am using it right now). There is a Casino with restaurant just a short walk away.

The price reflects AAA discount. This is a plain jane RV park - OK for a pass through Reno. It is close to the airport, but as long as the planes are coming in over you, it isn't too noisy. The only problem we found was that they didn't tell us that there were no 50 amp hookups at our site. So we tried to plug into 50 amps and nothing so hooked up to 30 and we were OK. When I asked on checking out about the 50 amps, the desk clerk said that he has asked for the 50 amps plugs to be removed for over 2 years. Oh well, 30 amps worked for us. It is quite a walk the casino and eateries, but you can call security for a ride, but allow up to 30 min. for that ride.

In my opinion, $45/night is WAY too much for this park. The park is 99% full of semi-permanent folks so there are only about 5 or less sites for over nighters. And of course, they only have the most expensive sites available. To me, a side-by-side hookup, although a pull-thru, is not considered to be "premier" and thus command the highest price. And no picnic table, only a concrete patio. Trees are small, but there is grass and the sites are well kept. The entrance is hard to find and we almost missed it. We did look at Double Dice just up the road and boy, do they pack them in! They also were very, very full. Iron Horse is probably the best park in the area, but the price is pretty steep considering the side-by-side, the nearby train, and the stream of working folks coming and going each AM and PM. Next time for an overnight, we may opt for the Wal-Mart.

This is a nice park with the exception of the many worker's rigs in the park. So every morning around 5 AM, there was a mass exodus to go to work. Only 50 amps, but with the nice large shade trees, you probably don't need to use your A/C. The owner was very friendly and helpful. The park is very clean. Although most of the hookups are side-by-side, you do get a patch of grass and a picnic table with your site. When in the area, we will stay again.

The park is still under construction, but they have some sites available for overnight or longer. The idea is to sell sites at some point, but still have a few for rent. Since the park was still under construction, there was a lot of activity going on during the day on weekdays. The park is not crowded and has a lovely spot on top of the hills. Our spot looked out over the valley and the evenings were very pretty with the lights from town. Currently, laundry is free and in new machines - only 2 of each, however. The park personnel are very personable and helpful. We did get one night free from the ad in Trailer Life. The one drawback is that all their sites are "pull in" so you have to back out when it is time to leave. But we easily got our 40' MH plus a full size pickup in the site. There also are no picnic tables which would have been nice. There aren't a lot of choices in Mesquite and this is a nice alternative.

We stayed here in order to ride our ATVs. The only bad thing about this park is that it is fairly new so the trees are newly planted so don't provide any shade. And the site is almost all gravel. The laundry and bath/shower rooms are also very new and very clean. The owners are very friendly and helpful. Our site had a lovely view of the valley below and mountains above. We really enjoyed our stay. And if you are riding an ATV, this is a great place to use as base camp since you can ride right out of the park in several directions.

This is a nice park with nice owners. There are lots of shade trees, lots of grass between the sites, lot of room between sites, and mostly pull-throughs. We came here to ride our ATVs and the owners were very helpful telling us about riding opportunities. In fact, you can ride right out of the campground onto lots of roads. The only "funky" part was the pool - we didn't use it since it looked a little icky, but the owners said it was fine, just a little old. It is also very small. The campground is also well off the freeway (but easy access to the freeway) so very quiet. Lots of people came here just to overnight. We enjoyed the place very much and will return in the future.

We stayed here in order to ride our ATVs. There isn't a lot of choice in Richfield for RV parks and this one is obviously the best one. It is well kept, with lots of shade trees and grass, camping cabins, and has a miniature golf course. For what ever reason (I didn't ask), the pool was covered even though it was 90 degrees during the afternoons when we were there. Now here is why I marked it down. his campground uses just about every available inch of ground for a site so they cramp lots of people in a small area. They have a number of rows that are side-by-side hookups - definitely not my favorite, but they are great for people traveling with other RVers. The ATV jamboree was still in town when we got our site so the place was packed and we were lucky to even get a site. We got one of those side-by-side hookups. But on Sunday, most everyone went home so the park was fairly empty. But a few days into our stay, a large group (5 large trailers) moved in next to us on the other side of the hookup. They appeared to be part of paving crew working in the area. They had many small children who were running around the campground. These folks would also stay up until after midnight - not loud, but not quiet. At night, their children would be hitting the insides of the trailer next to us, running up and down the length of the trailer, essentially making a lot of noise into the evening. This KOA has long-term sites on the far side of the campground and they could have easily put these folks there, but unfortunately for our sake, they put them in the area of folks who overnight or only stay a few days. Let's just say we were glad to leave.

This is a beautiful park: very well maintained, lots of room between sites, lots of grass, nice level concrete pads and patios, hosts were very helpful and friendly, and away from the freeway. The park is easy to find and enter. We would definitely stay here again. This is truly a gem in the desert.

We stayed here since there were no sites in Brigham City. Fortunately, the host at Golden Spike (BC) gave us the state park's phone number and they had a pull-through. We had a very nice site with ample room for our 40' MH plus the tow vehicle (65' total). There are, however, branches hanging over the roads, hitting the top of the RV and the freeway noise is not good, thus the rating of 7. The campground folks were very accommodating and helpful. We would stay here again is passing through.

This is a very nice park away from the freeway. The sites are separated by a good amount of "grassy" area. Most of the sites are pull-throughs. The staff was VERY friendly and helpful. There is a nice pool behind the office. The only reason I gave it 8 instead of 9 or 10 is that there are no shade trees (good for satellite though) and the "grass" is mostly weeds. Otherwise a great place to stay and look over this part of Oregon.

This is a quiet, well-maintained park. It used to be entirely a MH park, but as MH lefts, they opened it up to RV's. Since we were only staying overnight, we were put in an area designed just for overnighters since although there were sites with concrete patios and grass, we were on asphalt squeezed in right next to one another. There was no cable (not working at the time in our area), but we got several channels on the antenna. We would stay here again if we need a site for the night.

We were only able to get a water/electric hookup which also does not offer cable TV. Even so, we were surprised that the price was almost $40/night. The park is well kept, but some of the sites are a little difficult to get into and oddly shaped. There are some nice shade trees. They also have a very large laundry room. With your site, you get a table and a BBQ grill. Since the park is easy access off I-15, it is a good place to overnight.

This place is literally out in the middle of nowhere. Be aware that there isn't a good sign to direct you into the resort area and directions in the campground guides don't tell you where to turn. The park is nice, but all sites are dirt with no patios. It is right on the lake and within walking distance to the casino (very smokey), restaurant, and marina. We paid extra for a site near the water, but the view was worth it. There is a ferry that goes on the 1/2 hour to Lake Havasu City across the lake.

We didn't stay here since they were full and I think that was a lucky break for us. This was a scary place. This is "dog patch city". Most of the park was semi-permanent residents who don't take much pride in their sites. The staff was friendly and helpful, however, and did call to the KOA to the east for us to see if they had space. I was never so glad to get out of a place! The campground guides overrated this place.

This is an older state park so getting around and finding a site for a decent size RV is difficult. We had real problems with leveling on the pull-through sites. Also, the park does get a little "rowdy" on the weekends. We stayed here in order to visit relatives on the south side of Bellingham since there weren't any other RV park alternatives in that area. We had difficulty trying to find a park attendant to answer questions, but it was the last week of taking reservations so the number of staff had been decreased by then.

Prior to coming to Brenda, I read all the reviews on this site. I would agree that Black Rock is about the best RV park in town. What really impressed us was the friendly people - strangers coming up to us and inviting us over to a campfire, inviting us on a 4-wheel drive, stopping to talk, etc. The sites are very large with ample room for RV, vehicles, trailers, and storage buildings. There are many park models, but everyone keeps their sites up well. Lots of ATVs, golf carts, Rhinos since you can go right out the back of the park onto BLM desert land and ride for miles. We will be back.

The rate quoted is for a lakeside site. The other sites are $40/night on a daily basis, but they do offer 10% discount with Good Sam/AAA. We came here based on the advertisements and ratings in the campground guides, and made a mistake in doing so. The adjacent state park (Cattail Cove) would have been much better. The sites are very narrow with hookups on one side and the cabana on the other side. We barely fit with our slideouts, and we don't have large slideouts. The access road is narrow so getting in and out of our site is VERY difficult. I found the bathrooms/laundry room - laundry room only has 2 washers & 2 dryers. There are many permanent/semi-permanent residents. There is an OK cafe at the park which was good, but expensive and service is slow. There is a marina associated with the park where you can rent a slip. We won't come here again - the state parks are much better.

This park consists of over nighters and semi-permanent residents. The pull-throughs are long enough, but it is a little tight turning in and out of them. The sites are gravel and when the winds blow, it does get dusty. The laundry room is small and used by others in the town. There is a small grocery store that is part of the RV park and since this is one of the few grocery stores in town, there is a lot of in and out traffic for just the store. We had fun playing in the casino just north of the RV park. We used this as a base to see Death Valley NP.

Even though this place is out in the middle of nowhere, this is a nice RV park. It has many long and wide pull-through sites that are easy to get in and out. There is a small, older casino/bar and restaurant across the street - the restaurant is pretty good. The people are very friendly. The park is quiet. We found out that you can ride your ATV right out of the park in any direction. There are a number of snowbirds in the park. Monthly rates are $275 + electricity.

We stayed here because it was a Passport America affiliate so we got 1/2 price camping. The park is located quite a ways south from most of the things you would want to do in the area such as the casinos in Laughlin. We probably wouldn't have stayed here due to that fact if it weren't the only Passport America campground in this area. It is listed in Bullhead City, but is really located in Fort Mojave. Most of the sites are pull-through with concrete patios and tables. There are a number of full- timers/snowbirds/permanent residents, but most of those folks keep up their sites fairly well. The park is quiet and most campers are friendly.

This is a beautiful park - an oasis in the desert. If you visit in March or April, you will need reservations. Since we visited in February, there were a number of sites available. The only drawback was that there are only a few pull-through sites, but the back-ins were very large. It is a well maintained, well landscaped, fun casino, good and relatively cheap restaurant nearby. Overall, a great place to stay in Pahrump.

We stayed here since it was a Passport America affiliate so the regular price would have been $20. The turnoff for the park was very difficult to find and we almost missed it. It is located in two parts with back in in one place and pull through about 1/2 mile down the road. The location isn't the best with unkempt properties nearby, barking dogs, and smell of horses. The pull-through sites, however, were easy to get into and were fairly level. It is an OK place for a night or two. We found it better than behind the Ramada in town.

We stayed here because it was a Passport America affiliate. Normal rate would have been $30/night. They had 1 site available for over nighters - rest appeared to be permanent residents who didn't have pride of ownership. Sites were squeezed together with little room. Fortunately, the 1 site for over nighters is the biggest site. The hot tub, as noted in the directory, was the hot tub in the backyard of the residence out in the open. The person who greeted us and helped us to our site was friendly and courteous. We wouldn't have stayed there if it wasn't for the 1/2 price camping.
