Louisiana State Parks honor the Senior Pass issued by the National Park Service to those U.S. Citizens 62 years old so we were able to stay in this park for $9.00 a night - wonderful! The park is very nice and has all paved streets as well as paved campsites along with a choice of either 30 or 30 amp electric power. There's no additional charge for 50 amp electric!!! Getting to the park from I-10 takes about 25 minutes and passes through some busy urban area. The host staff is very cordial and helpful. The park is rustic and very beautiful. Access to water related activities is handy to the camp sites. Satellite TV access is good this time of year since there are no leaves on the trees. Verizon Cell Phone and Internet Air Card access is excellent!
There is no aesthetic appeal to this campground but it is conveniently located to I-10 and for one or two nights it's OK. It looks very rough. I would not stay here for an extended period of time. We had full hookups but the electric, when tested, showed an OPEN GROUND on 30 amp service - beware! Check before you connect! 50 amp service is at an additional charge. Sites are pull-through, dirt and are tight. Water pressure was sub-standard - had to use the rig's internal water pump to boost pressure to adequate levels. Sewer was adequate. There is NO over-the-air TV reception - satellite only. Verizon cell phone and Internet air-card reception was adequate. We stayed here as Passport Members.
We stayed in this park for one night. It's well maintained with nice sized pull-through gravel sites. Water/electric/sewer were all acceptable - 50 amp electric was provided free! That's one to take note of! Verizon cell phone and wireless air-card Internet reception was acceptable. My wife and I will stay at this park again in the future. The receptionist was very friendly and helpful.
Pilot Knob RV Resort is an OK campground but it's unfortunately located immediately along Interstate 8, a major highway moving truck traffic into and out of southern California. We stayed in the back of the park so noise at night from the highway was minimized but none the less, it's still very noticeable inside a Class A Motor Home. All the streets are dirt/gravel and there's lots of dust but that's just part of being in the desert. Electric, water, and sewer services were adequate. Over-the-air TV reception from Yuma, AZ, is quite good and there are NO restrictions to satellite reception. Many of the sites have cement pads on which to sit in your lawn chair to enjoy the beautiful sunsets. There are few amenities in this park yet it's called a "resort", another stretch of the truth. Overall we enjoyed our stay and we had excellent Verizon Broadband and Cell Phone connectivity.
This campground really disappointed us because of our site location. When we check into the park for our week's stay, we asked to NOT be on a site along either of their main streets. We were told that the street noise was minimal and wouldn't bother us. Immediately we realized that street noise is "significant" and is very disturbing. The attendant who told us that noise wasn't a factor was clearly misinformed or didn't care, I'm not sure which is the case! Prior to setting up we requested to be relocated to another site since there were numerous vacant sites available but we were told that we couldn't move. We'll likely never stay in this campground again since they clearly don't care if those who don't want to be along a major street are inconvenienced. In favor of the resort personnel, I'll state clearly that they put on a very nice New Year's Eve celebration. We stayed there as ROD Members so there was NO nightly rate.
