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.
Perfect time of year to be at this park -- lots of vacancies meaning lots of privacy. The sites were clean and wide. I would have rated this park a 10 if there were shade trees surrounding the sites, but I don't believe that is possible in AZ. The hosts gave us some great printed material for places to see, beginning with the amazing meteor crater down the road. We also visited Winslow, the Petrified Forest/Painted Desert, and the underwhelming Hopi Reservation. We wish we could have stayed longer because there were other interesting day trips. The park had 2 large fenced-in dog exercise areas. The park was also easily accessible off I-40, but the road noise was not distracting. My husband said the bathrooms were like a bathroom in a home -- private, clean, tiled, with a glass enclosure shower. Great park. We would definitely return.
This park has made use of every single inch of space. It is well-manicured, clean, beautifully landscaped, and quiet. We were in "elite" spaces in the back. It borders on a park, but you may not walk your dog there. Every RV is packed in like sardines. No picnic tables at the sites but one grill and table is available for anyone to use -- right next to an RV site. There is a small area to walk a dog on a leash. The pool is tiny. There are many long term people who may or may not respond to a "hello". The area is lacking in good restaurants. Road noise is present but not intolerable. For those who like privacy, space, and sociable neighbors, this is not the place for you.
Clean, quiet park. Some sites had sewer hookups, which is uncommon in most state parks. It was not a busy time of year so we had lots of privacy. The sites were wide and shaded. There were hiking trails and some beautiful vistas of areas surrounding the mountain. The location was excellent. We would definitely return.
Friendly staff. Clean campground. There was nothing but sand everywhere. Our campsite was a pull-through which was merely a small pull-off on the side of the road. Since the only activity at this park besides picnicking, is sliding down the sand dunes on saucers, the park had a large number of children. The wind made it impossible to use the grill. I would like to warn people that have respiratory conditions that the air has lots of sand dust in it. My husband, dog, and myself sneezed constantly. This is a unique place which we are glad to have experienced, but we will not return. In fact, we left a day earlier than planned.
My husband, my German Shepherd, and I loved this park! We would have stayed longer except we did not know spring break would overlap our vacation time. Before the spring breakers arrived, the park was quiet and uncrowded. We enjoyed long walks along the lakefront without meeting up with anyone else. Our site was huge and backed onto a wooded area. Deer came by around dawn behind our RV. The park was convenient for us to take day trips to Fredericksburg and the many wineries in the area. We definitely want to return, perhaps a week earlier next time. There is so much to do in the area.
Clean park. Friendly staff. Laundromat prices reasonable. We were allowed to change to a site that had a swatch of grass next to it, after initially being assigned to a site in the back that was totally gravel. What frustrated us and is the chief reason for the low rating: there was absolutely not one piece of earth in this park, where we could walk our dog to relieve himself except the gravel parking lot used for storing RVs. The grass spots along the fence lines we marked with signs stating pets were not allowed. We had to take our dog in the car to a park several miles away. So this really isn't a dog friendly park. This was a quiet park except that behind one fence line is a junkyard with junkyard dogs that bark at all times of the day and night. In all fairness, we were warned about them. If I were not traveling with a dog, the park would have been convenient and adequate for our overnight stay. My husband and I are partial to parks that do not resemble parking lots and that offer privacy which is rare for commercial parks. This was no exception.
