This campground is a mixed bag. First of all, it's quite pretty, even in a drought. It is probably beautiful when the lake is full and the grass is green. The sites are very well spaced with views and it was amazingly quiet during the week while I was there. There are some electric sites but I chose a standard one. Now, for the negative. There is no pay box for campers and I had to ask three different rangers where I could pay my fee before someone finally came around on my second day there and took my check. He said he'd bring back a pass/receipt but never did. Also, when I left I swung by the dump station and found the drains both locked! I had counted on using the dump station so that was very inconvenient. Nevertheless, I would return here because the good points outweigh the bad.

Date of Stay:

Small, very tight park. There is a wall around it but the traffic & train noise are still a big issue. Mostly permanent residents but reasonably clean except for the laundry room which could use a good scrubbing. The pool and hot tub looked clean. OK for a night [I stayed two] and a good price with PA. Would certainly not pay the $37 regular rate.

This has always been a great park--maybe even better than it used to be. Clean-as-a-whistle facilities, pool, citrus trees at every site and very friendly staff. Great Wifi; CATV in some sites, although OTA channels are available, too. I chose a water & electric site which was an excellent value. The only fly in the ointment here is the traffic noise---highway and train. Other than that it's just about perfect.

Date of Stay:

The traffic noise is loud and constant here. This is a small, cramped park with back-in sites. The laundry 'room' [two washers, two dryers] is right in the office, literally. The owner/manager is very nice but I can't see paying $40 for a place that has really nothing to offer. Oh, there are a massage parlor, tattoo parlor and a pawn shop right across the street.

Date of Stay:

Picturesque campground in a canyon with a nice 2-mile canyon trail to enjoy. Had the place almost to myself except on the weekend when there were quite a few day-use hikers and picnickers. There are several water faucets but there was no water while I was there. No dump but there were garbage cans placed near every site. Each site has a picnic table with a ramada and a fire grill. Was able to get Verizon voice/data signal only with my antenna booster. The dirt roads in are washboard-y but don't demand high clearance. IMHO, this campground is a real gem, with widely-spaced sites and great scenery.

Date of Stay:

Very pretty scenery and well tended. The sites are very small and surrounded by rocks and many RVs had a great deal of difficulty trying to fit in. While my small motorhome fit comfortably into a back-in site, I would not recommend the park for rigs that are long, wide, or have slideouts. There is a dump station with fresh water but it's outside the campground.

Had hoped to use the laundry but all but two machines were 'out of order' and those two always in use, so I had to drive into Yuma to use a laundromat. This was a rather noisy park in unpleasant surroundings and I would only stay here again if I had no other choice.

Date of Stay:

Friendly staff but the sites were so close I literally had to crawl under my neighbor's slide to hook up my sewer hose. The laundry was clean and adequate. I only stayed one night and wouldn't want to stay any longer.

Date of Stay:

Just stayed one night. The laundry was ample and very clean. The shower, there was only one for each gender, was very old but seemed clean enough. The location was convenient from I-8 and yet rural enough to be pleasant. Staff very friendly. The WiFi was often slow. Good Verizon signal.

Beautiful park popular with kayakers and fishermen. No-wake regulations on the lake. Three launches. The RV sites are literally a two-tiered parking lot but one RV is allowed two spaces. No dump but you are allowed to use the one at South Mesa just down the road. The hosts were positively the nicest I've ever met anywhere! Stayed my allowed two weeks but plan to return next year.

Date of Stay:

This is a very nice park in a very pleasant town. My site was not very level but the laundry was clean and and CATV and Wifi worked very well. Good Verizon signal. Stayed here overnight several times between longer stays at Organ Pipe Cactus NM, about 35 miles south, to get laundry done and to watch football.

Date of Stay:

Organ Pipe Cactus National Monument is a beautiful desert park. Immaculately maintained. I did not see so much as a cigarette butt on any trails or on the road, anywhere in the park. Very quiet (I camped in the no-generator area) and with amazing sunrises and sunsets. Excellent Verizon signal. Spent a week and will certainly return.

Date of Stay:

Only there for one night but was impressed by the attractiveness of the park. Very well maintained and with a lovely mountain view. Mostly seasonal, as this is a co-op, and understandably quite popular as a winter destination.

Date of Stay:

Very scenic park with good, paved, level sites large enough and staggered to afford privacy. Usable Verizon signal. I did not do the caverns but did hike the trails.

Date of Stay:

Quite simply the most stunningly beautiful campground I've ever visited. It is also the quietest. The park is limited to RVs 29' or under. Many of the sites have low-hanging branches and all are shaded, so no solar. The campground is surrounded by high canyon walls of strange and wonderful rock formations and filled with lush vegetation and is a birding paradise. Great trails of varying difficulty levels. I will come here again. And again.
