If you're visiting the Borax or Aerospace museums in Boron, it's an ok place to stay for a nigh,t but I don't think I'd stay much longer. Several of the sites are long term residents, I don't consider this park an "oasis'" It's just a place to park safely for the night with hookups. The manager was very nice and helpful, but the town is not very appealing, to say the least. There is a lot of history here, which is interesting, and the museums are worth seeing. By the time you do all that you will want a place to stay nearby. This works OK for that. We used Passport America at $20 which was a bit higher than listed but still OK.

We were here for 3 days and were lucky enough to get a site without a reservation. We could only check in for 2 days at a time and you have to renew every two days if you can. When we got there the first night we couldn't get a site and went back outside of town to Pegleg Road where we were able to boondock for one night, then we were able to get in the campground. The campground is very nice, palm trees everywhere, and you're right in the middle of the desert. Sunrise/sunsets are spectacular and the park is really quiet. Borrego Springs is a "dark sky" town so you can really see the stars at night. I think if I go back, which I will, I'd try to get one of the dry sites in the upper canyon, numbered 90 and above, since in a motorhome we can go dry for several days and use their water and dump stations. No matter where, it's a super campground.

This is one of the nicest parks I've stayed in; really clean and everyone very friendly. We are not fans of the snowbird type of parks, but this one is very nice. If you're into it, there are so many activities that you can be busy all the time. Two nice pools (bathtub temp), spa, meeting rooms, gym, etc., all available. Free wi-fi. They guide you to your site and help back in so you don't knock over the utilities. There are two sides, one gravel the other lawn. We got the gravel but I think if I were there longer I'd opt for the grass. Lots of folks walking dogs all the time, and two large off-leash play areas. Even though we were there in the tail end of the snowbird season, they still honored our Passport America rate which is a bargain for this type of park. The only annoyance was no garbage cans anywhere, only dumpsters at the front of the park but it's not a big issue. Another nice thing, there aren't any "owner" cabins or spaces, everything is a rental so there is no stigma for those of us just passing through. For sure I'd stay there again if in the area.

What can you say, it's a place to park that's close to a big casino and there are over 700 spaces, so you can usually get a spot. We were crammed in next to others. If you have a slideout you may be just a few feet from your neighbor, plus their car or truck may be right outside your door. On the plus side, there is a shuttle down to the casino, dogs are ok, and they have cable TV and full hookups. We took a ride down to the casino a few miles out of town and liked it better. If we ever go back to Laughlin we'll stay there instead. (My wife liked the feel of the casino better as they seem to have a nicer RV park, and a beautiful lagoon on the river.)

Our first time here, but we'll be back. The nicest people and a really clean park. Rates are reasonable and discounts for cash and the usual ones. The place is really big, but you're not crowded, and we had lots of oranges in Feb. The lodge is the best I've seen anywhere plus free coffee and donuts in the am.

we stayed at this park with a group of about 15 motorhomes. We used their facilities to have our meetings and dinners and the meeting room was filthy. There was a dead mouse behind the stove and my wife had a cockroach crawling up her arm at the table. Also the sink was plugged for 3 days and we had to take our dishes over 2 bldgs away to wash them. The park itself is not bad with lots of room but if you are holding a meeting there I think I would change my mind.

For $15 it's a place to stay in town, I think more quiet than the ones outside of town on Hwy 50 with all the trucks. At least they slow down through downtown so it's pretty quiet. No frills, just a parking lot with hookups. Wi-Fi is pretty slow but it's there, no TV. For a one night stay I think it's just fine, we're there right now and will prob go in the casino for breakfast. There are only two RV's in the park right now, so I don't think they're too busy most of the time.

We hit Austin in the late afternoon and looked for a place for the night. The two in town didn't look too inviting so we checked websites and found this park, just 4.5 miles East of town on Hwy 50. Small park, some pull-throughs, some back-ins but super quiet, a really nice little place to stay. There is water at several spigots, rest rooms with flush toilets but no frills. Just a nice, quiet place to stay for a day or more. I think it's either BLM or Forest Service and that includes 50% discount for Golden Age pass ($5).

I was impressed with the cleanliness and orderliness of the park. I think it's the best in the town, large enough sites, game room for the kids, free coffee, the most immaculate rest rooms I've seen in an RV park. A bit pricey but the whole town is that way. Really close to the town and the west entrance, very friendly staff and helpful. Reservations are a good idea, we had a medical issue and tried to stay longer but they were completely booked up and we had to move to another park in town, but they gave us suggestions that helped. One issue-mosquitoes, maybe it's the month of July but we couldn't stay outside long and even our dog got bitten all over his nose. Otherwise I'd recommend it for sure.

We stayed here for two nights, didn't have a reservation but they had a spot available for us. The park was pretty full and the sites are kind of nice, trees between most of them and lots of shade. It's a real mom & pop operation (maybe just pop) but friendly and helpful. No credit cards, cash only and I think they're a bit high but the whole area is high during the high season. It's a little away from town to walk in, but a quick drive. Rest rooms were really clean, and the park pretty well maintained. I'd stay again but hopefully with a discount. For a night or two they don't offer any. I realize their season is short and they have to make it up when they can.

This is a nice little place to stay along the way, just below Idaho Falls on I-15. Lots and lots of grass and lawn areas, grass between sites. Nice and quiet, I hear a bit of road noise but not bad. Water and elect on site, dump a few feet away. There is a small historical park sort of adjacent to the campground and a little airfield for model planes. I think it's a good place for the money, no complaints. Rest rooms are clean, and there is also a dry camp area for around $5. It's certainly as good as the $32 park we stayed at last night, so no complaints from me.

We used the Passport America card and paid $17.50 so it was fine for a one night park but a bit expensive if no discount. Check in folks were really nice and helpful, park is mostly gravel sites, clean and not very large but long enough for our 32' and toad. Pool small, lots of kids in it but the hours were strange. Doesn't open till noon which is the hottest of the day so we didn't use it at all. My wife likes to swim in the am but could not. There were some trees for shade but not too many. I'd stay there again for a night if in the area, especially with the discount. Restaurant-they recommended the Griddle for breakfast. I'd avoid it, overpriced and nothing more than your typical diner breakfast. I think a Dennys or Ihop would be even better if you can find one.

Stayed here just before the July 4th holiday, snow is mostly all gone and the park seems fully open. We were only there for the night (our first time at this preserve) but it's really beautiful in the trees and the lake is still and would be perfect for a kayak or inflatable. We got one of the few pull-throughs since we had a toad and didn't have to disconnect. There were lots of trailers and tent campers there, so I'd say they were in full operation but we didn't go into the lodge or even look at the pool. I can see staying here for several days just to be in the pines, but right now the mosquitoes are heavy and hungry, I hope it's better when it dries up a bit. Many of the sites are not level and might be hard to set up, or are better suited to smaller rigs but I liked the spacing and we weren't too close to anyone else.

Nice park about 8 miles outside of Twin Falls but worth the ride. Nearly all grassy sites and pull throughs, lots of shade trees. They let me pick my own site, which was a nice change but maybe it was because it wasn't busy. Discount offered (10%) for GS, AAA, etc and I think it's fair for this kind of park. The pool is fed by underground warm springs and is super, and warm. No chairs at the pool at all. They have a gas station in front, prices maybe average or high average for the area, small store, and coffee shop on premises. Wi-Fi is strong, TV with your own antenna or dish. We planned on one night but will stay two because it's such a nice place and there is lots to see in town. The trees and grass make it feel just like a park. For sure I'd stay here again.

We stayed here last night for just one night and had a very nice time. The park is all grass, well maintained, and lots of shade trees. This is really a "mom and pop" park, small but very friendly. Nightly campfire by the owners with campers and neighbors sitting around talking. Really a nice experience and fun. Dog friendly, just do your pickup duty. Nice little pond and stream running through the park. The place is a bit small but cozy. Make sure you watch the exit numbers on I-80 for #343 since it's several miles outside of town. The town of Wells is a bit run down and not too much doing, but we were there on a holiday so lots were probably closed. They accept the Passport America discount so it was 1/2 price, a real bargain. For sure I'd stay there again next time I'm in the area. We drove by the other park in town, Crossroads, and were sure glad we stayed where we did instead.
