The understanding of Elk Lodge camping was for traveling Elk members to have a safe, clean overnight stay stop. This lodge rents out spaces for long term, some even permanent live in year round. No reservations accepted, yet people are allowed to pay ahead for a spot and not actually occupy it. There are unoccupied trailers there that are actually for sale. Members are turned away due to no space available. Very disappointed with this Elk campground.
We enjoy this park for the ATV riding, friendly helpful staff big pull through sites, clean pool & hot tub to relax in at night! It is in the middle of nowhere, but close enough to get everywhere. The train going by each night ....ummm? Questionable!
Very nice county park. No cell service, internet service or satellite TV! With that said, roughing it was great. Disk golf course was wonderful! Firewood was sold, 10 pieces for $5.00. Ice was also for sale. Signage was poor, hard to find our reserved site! Nice little beach area next to the boat launch. We enjoyed our stay here, road noise was a minimal at night. Campground was very clean,
This is a membership park. We were here under RPI which is suppose to be $10.00 per night. Cat Spa charges a $5.00 resort fee plus extra ($2.00) for 50 amp. Park is nice enough. Most of the sites need major leveling. They were planting palm trees along the back row, yet these sites are hardly usable. (Bad slope which makes it hard to level if in anything longer than 30'.) Lots of activities. Pickleball is so popular that people come from other parks to play (sometimes a long wait between games). Pools are great, adult and a family pool both with mineral hot tubs. Food selling and store was winding down for the end of the season even though this park is open year round. This side of town gets wind! Staff was very friendly as were most of the other campers. This home park (2 weeks in 1 out or buy week out) has a lot of members who know each other and really seem to be having a good time. This is our 3rd time here and we will be back.
This was our second time here. Very nice park. ROD members so we stayed here for free. Extra charge for 50amp ($3.00 per nite) extra charge for Wi-Fi ($2.00 per nite) Nice big sites with full hookups. Lots of activities, pickleball court was very busy (many people came each morning from outside of the park) so rotation in/out gave you a break. Water volleyball every day was also very busy (many non campers). Meals available. Close to Palm Springs and reasonable golf courses. Laundry available at reasonable price (W-$1.25 & D-$1.00) Gated, wind wasn't to bad. We will return here again next winter.
We stayed here for a week. Nice park, big sites. Some trees, nice path along the river. Pool was nice. Hot tub was out of order the entire time we were here. Lots of planned activities. Pizza wagon, good pizza with reasonable prices. 4 miles to Blythe for any shopping (nothing in Ehrenberg) Pilot J at same exit with RV pumps. Staff is very friendly. ROD so we stayed for free. Sites along the river are for WH members only.
First time to this park. It is cosmetically ugly. Big,level gravel sites. A few orange trees in what looks like the original part of the park. These sites are small and are good for a pull trailer or a camper. 50 amp available at extra charge. Water was OK, we did put our filter on the connection. Some activities. There are a handful of couples here for the winter. At first they were very friendly, but after the inital greeting they were not. Planned activities on their own (water aerobics, potlucks) The campground was only 1/8 full when we were here so we really felt like outsiders as there wasn't any other short timers here. They all had ATV's, went on daily rides but never invited us even though we did camp here with quads. Very ATV friendly with lots of trails that are accessed right from the campground. Pool area was nice. Folks who work here do a great job of keeping the place clean. Place is out in the middle of nowhere, small market about 2 miles away with gas. A veggie stand is in town 2-3 days a week with fresh veggies and fruit. Close to Quartzsite. We found other campgrounds along Hwy 60 that were much nicer (trees) so we probably would not come back here again.
We stayed here while visiting friends in the area. Park was a bit disappointment at first. Lots of older, run down park models with lots of junk around them. Then we got to know the "permanent" people here in the park. Some of the nicest people we have met on our travels. The pool was covered the entire time we were here. Some activities planned. Laundry had new machines but you have to pay $2.00 fee to get a recharged card that can be reloaded for use (we gave ours to a neighbor) as I don't think we will return. Area seemed a bit run down, maybe the older part of town, we felt safe when walking the dog though. Nice fenced dog park area. Club house was nice too. Manager was friendly. Hard water here, 50 amp service, extra charge for Wi-Fi. Was able to pick up Phoenix channels off the antenna. Site was a bit skinny, gravel, with a cement slab. Good central location to see the sites.
This was our second time to Yuma Lakes. RPI members. Staff was very friendly. Park is clean and scheduled activities. New cook this year, food was good and reasonable. Pet friendly, new off leash area: very nice. Water is really bad here, everyone has water softeners or some sort of filter. Sites are big enough, each with a picnic table. It is a ways out of town, so we found it absent of road traffic, etc. You are able to ride your ATV out of the park onto riding areas. Free internet. They have developed the back area into "bought" sites, they come with 50amp. Nice little lake with fish! We camped here under RPI & will return. Great shuffleboard court.
Nice Park. Off a busy road, the sites up on the hill are the best (if you can get one). Staff was very friendly. Pool is nice but has trees around it. The lake had ducks and we saw kids fishing. Planned activities. Accepted member mail, but it is delivered & left in unsecured guard shack at the entrance of the park. Close enough to Tucson to do daily excursions. Lots of people had ATV's and were able to ride them out of the park to riding areas. This was a nice park and we would return here again. We are ROD members so the stay was free.
First visit to this park. We were ROD which made us a bit "sub-citizen" meaning only certain sites were available. We had to take sites close to major roads (lots of road noise) even though the park was 1/3 full. Park was clean, staff not very friendly. Would not accept mail because we were not Western Horizon members. Charged extra for 50 amp. Pool area was nice.
This was the first time we camped here. Check in staff was "polite" friendly. Lots of extra charges (call ahead and ask) we were not told any of these until check in. Sites were adequate, gravel with some trees. Park was clean. Pool and restrooms were clean. Clubhouse was closed for remodeling. Town is close with everything you may need, gas on bullhead Pkwy with big rig access. Wind blew the entire time we were here. Pet friendly. We would return here as it is one of our RPI parks.
