Railroad tracks and trains are just across the freeway. We know this and requested a spot at the south side of the park, preferably on the end, via email reservation. When we arrived we had been given a slot on the north side of the park, in middle of the row where the nightly trains are quite loud. Showers and dressing areas look like they have not been cleaned in quite some time. One shower head is so encrusted with calcium, the water sprays everywhere but down. The other shower, has powder all over the place so dangerous to use. No shower curtains so dry clothes and towels get splashed with water regardless of the shower head condition. If you shower in your rig, this may not matter to you. I have long hair and prefer to wash it in a standard shower. This is the noisiest park we stay at on our 2500 mile trip due to the "trains" which very much enjoy "running all night" (every night), and playing loud horns as they pass by the railroad crossing about 1/4 mile away. The noise travels. Ear plugs help with our sleep, and I would not stay here without them. This park is no longer a park of choice for us. We no longer recommend this park as we once did.

I believe only sites 1-33 have cable TV and telephone. If you are not a bass fisherman, I would avoid this large parking lot RV park. When I went to complain about drunk fishermen, front desk staff stated bass fishermen are KVC's bread and butter so employees advised to allow them their way. No one oversees the RV park. Prominent signs direct boat trailers to be parked in lot *adjacent* to RV park but people park their boats throughout the RV spaces so access to hookups is limited. As previous reviewer stated, people take up 2 or even 3 sites per rig limiting access to available sites. Free-for-all RV park where near anything seems to be acceptable to management. Over the years I have observed several people beating their dogs, with many others drunk and looking for a fight. Not safe or comfortable to walk around in the evening when often times people are loud and unruly. Cheap place to stay, yes but many trades to save money. Laundromat this year, only 2 out of 3 washers are working and 1 out of 3 dryers. Cafe prices have gone up in recent years, but the food has been reliable and is convenient. Business in the area brings me here the last few years. Over that time I have stayed at this park perhaps 50 days. Events previously described are part of a typical visit. I would not stay here for a family vacation.

Great place to park. Easy on and off freeway but remarkably peaceful and fun to watch the prairie dogs. Bathrooms and showers were clean with plenty of hot water. Easy to do laundry. Room to walk the dog plus a large, fenced off-leash dog area. Meteor Crater RV Park is an oasis in the desert. {Note: Husband paid this time so the rate may be incorrect.}

No idea how someone stayed here for $12 but we have stayed several times over last 4 years and rates are *never* below $30, and are generally closer to $35. Even using Passport America one year, rates were about $17 for limit of 4 nights. Spaces are so close together as to be nearly on top of each other. Grass is great for dogs and park is walkable. Very expensive place to park for basic accommodations. Even a swimming pool would not improve this as park is likely to increase rates to cover the extra expense of a pool. Many spaces filled with stored motor homes, fifth wheels, and boats crowding the occupied units and giving the feel of parking in an RV lot rather than an RV park. The new weekly and monthly rates are the highest we have seen anywhere in 8 years of RV travel, for nothing more than a place to park your rig. Pull throughs are reserved for longer rigs so rigs shorter than a certain length are assigned back-in spaces. Free Wi-Fi is available but during the times we stayed, is unreliable and often slow. For 151 spaces, just 3 washers and 2 dryers which are nearly always in use. Can be noisy primarily from big rigs going up and down the main road, plus several rigs parked outside the park near the Best Western motel. Would stay again but if there was an acceptable alternative, we would consider it instead.

Like other reviewers, this park seems to be deteriorating since our first stay in March, 2006. New owners; we hear. WiFi worked fine for us inside our coach and parked in the back row and while it is close to I-40, it is amazingly quiet. New owners have added breakfast & dinner offerings which they will deliver to your site, if you wish. On the down side though, units are side-by-side and we prefer a bit more elbow room. The place was full when we arrived at 2:30 am and we stayed on a second day to recover from the late arrival. Staff is friendly enough and our dog enjoys the park. We are debating about whether or not we would stay again though on our prior 2 visits (1 for a week), we enjoyed the campground very much. While shower was not clean, it was not severely dirty either and had plenty of hot water with good pressure.

We arrived late, after the office closed, and had one heck of a time finding our site -- nothing is marked on the roads or directional signs indicating site areas, and at least where our site was located (#C6), it is pitch dark with no lights. You can not see the site numbers until you are right on top of it. We were not the only ones who had difficulty -- the husband had to help another rig who had also taken the incorrect direction, a 40' + towed, back-up, etc., so they could find their site. Now the husband tells me there was a note on the reservation envelope saying, "it might be a good idea to locate your site on foot before driving to it." Good advice; however, this still leaves one without any good directions since there are no signs, etc., and it is pitch dark. What if one is disabled?? The husband says this place is "not user-friendly." We decided to stay here rather than somewhere else based on reviews of the park on this site. We will not stay here again.

We enjoy staying at Avi with its easy access to the Casino and restaurants. Windy when we were there this time with mostly sand to walk the dog. She manages and we stay here rather than in Needles or Laughlin. Quiet and close to the Colorado river. Would stay again.

We enjoy Dead Horse Ranch a lot and stay here when we visit Sedona. It is quiet and we love the roadrunners and other animals wandering around. Dog-friendly and quiet for an excellent night's sleep. If I had 1 complaint it is that the only trash bin is at the entrance to the Quail camp area where we stayed. On the other hand, it is a great walk with the dog to dump the garbage, or drop it off on your way out. Will stay again next time we visit Sedona.

We always stay here when going into or coming out of the Mojave Desert. Trains seemed particularly loud this stay though noise was covered up by turning on the fan only on the a/c. Stayed several times and this was the first time we noticed the trains during the night; possibly the spot we were in this time vs the other stays. Bathrooms are always immaculate and the laundry is great! Fun to pick fresh oranges when in season; nothing like tree-ripened fruit. Great, long dog walk area.

Good place to stop on Interstate 5 between Santa Nella and Sacramento. Pretty quiet and freeway noise is minimal with easy access to fast food and gas stations. Our Jack Russell Terrier enjoyed the jack rabbits running around the park in the late afternoon. Have stayed twice and would stay again using this park as a "stopover" rather than long-term location.
