Date of Stay:

Only stayed one night with Good Sam discount. Office wasn't open quite yet so I checked myself in according to instructions. Huge concrete sites, very easy access, picnic tables. Several dumpsters conveniently placed. Did not use the bath or laundry but both the Wifi and cable were very good. Will stop here again if I am in the area.

Date of Stay:

As others have reported, the staff is very nice and helpful. Otherwise I would have rated the park lower. The gravel sites are very close together, cable TV was fuzzy and the surroundings less than pleasing. OK for overnight and that's pretty much the extent of their business. They offer propane. Verizon signal 3G only.

Date of Stay:

I love this campground! Sites are large & fairly level gravel, each with a ramada, table and grill and all overlooking Walker Lake. There was hardly anyone else here during my stay, so it was quiet. No hookups but there are toilets, which I didn't use. No water, garbage or dump. Only 15 miles from Hawthorne. Good Verizon 4G.

If you don't care about your surroundings, this is a fine overnight RV park. Level gravel sites, convenient access and good CATV & Wifi. While there are only two washers and dryers, they are new and clean. Unfortunately, it is in a rather seedy area behind a mini-mart and Napa parts store. There is a fair amount of traffic. The new staff are just learning the ropes so check-in was a bit awkward but they were very nice. I was here two nights. Next time I would probably spend a few more dollars and stay at the park up the road, but would not rule out staying here again.

Date of Stay:

Not my first visit here and probably won't be my last. Scenery is so gorgeous it can't really be described. Two campgrounds, one, Atlatl Rock, has some hookups. I stayed in Arch Rock, no hookups, but beautiful campsites. As someone has already stated, sites 15 to 29, which branch off the main loop, are the choicest, i.e., the most private and scenic but all these were full so I got site 14, also very nice. The entry fee/camping fee process is a bit confusing and should probably be clarified so that campers can pay both entry and camping fees at one station. Didn't use the toilet facilities. There are water spigots scattered throughout the campground as well as numerous garbage cans. There is also a fresh water fill at the dump station. No Verizon signal. Lots of beautiful hikes and scenic roads. Truly one of a kind.

Beautiful campground on Lake Mead. My fee reflects the America the Beautiful pass. Lots of palm trees and other vegetation, all well-tended by volunteers. Concrete sites, quite level, all with some view of the lake. Concrete picnic tables and grills. No hookups but there is another campground next door that offers them. There is a sewer dump and fresh water fill area as well as water spigots (threaded) near most sites. I would stay here again but not during allergy season.

This is an unusual county park in many respects. For one thing, it allows long-term camping (I stayed a week for a discount)--up to four months. The park is right on the river, has fenced dog parks, tennis court, horseshoe pits and, of course, a marina. Cable TV is available in some sites. I stayed in the water/electric/CATV section. Verizon was iffy at best but the cable TV was very good. If you have a pet, you must deposit $20 which you will retrieve as you depart if there have been no complaints. The park was very busy and, as you might expect, being right on the river, rather noisy with jet-skis, boats, etc. Also a lot of ATVs and motorcycles. The volunteer staff was friendly but insufficient to deal with the number of campers. They really need one person to check people in and another to deal with all the myriad issues that hundreds of campers will surely present. I would stay here again. Good value.

This park is a mixed bag--the staff are nice, the laundry room is small but clean and affordable, there is a pet walk area behind the park. There are a lot of permanent residents but most rigs are respectable-looking. Overall, the maintenance is poor, the sites are too close together and there is a fair amount of traffic noise. I would probably stay here again for a day or two but would not make it a destination. The price reflects a Passport America discount on my first day of three.

Date of Stay:

Beautiful park, well maintained. Sites not very level. Great scenery. Will definitely return.

This could be a nice park. It isn't. There are lovely palm trees and mature cactus gardens and the location is convenient. Unfortunately, there seems to be an overall lack of care, possibly due to the absentee owner [he lives in Canada]. My first observation was of people checking in at the office. The office staff was shockingly rude to everyone, treating paying guests as problems to be dealt with. She actually asked one woman, 'Well, what do YOU want?!' I did not use the restrooms but did use the laundry. Out of eight dryers, five were 'out of order'. I was told by residents that this has been the case for 'a long time'. I spoke to the owner by telephone because, if it were MY business, I'd want to know how it was being run. The owner spoke as if he was concerned about the park but I had the impression he didn't really care about the rude staff or the general lack of maintenance. The residents are very nice people and they deserve much better.

This is not a 'resort' so I found it perfect for an overnight stay. Great value, convenient location east of Yuma. Cash or checks only. Good cable TV, nice staff. Would definitely return.

Date of Stay:

Very attractive, clean and well-managed park, largely occupied by seasonal residents. Laundry room large and spotlessly clean, all front-loader washers. They use a card rather than quarters so you might have $ left on your card when you leave, as I did. The CATV was good. They have TengoInternet WiFi, which I didn't use. There is an electronic entry gate for which you are issued a card. If you have a pet, it must be walked in the pet area, a separate fenced area which you access with a key. There is a fair amount of noise here, as it is in a high traffic area but it's a very nice park with plenty of amenities.

Date of Stay:

Stayed both here and at Cholla. Cholla is prettier and the sites better maintained but both are great values. Good 4G Verizon in both. Sites well spaced and the campground was quiet even on the weekend. Plenty of showers and they were very clean and well designed.

Date of Stay:

I can't think of any reason not to give this campground a'10'. It's beautifully scenic, very quiet (at least during the week when I was there), roads and sites are paved, each roomy site with a ramada-roofed metal picnic table and fire ring. Many, if not most, sites overlook the lake. There is a well-maintained gravel walking trail around the campground. If there was anything negative about it, it was the awkward way one has to purchase daily passes (one for each day and cannot be purchased onsite). Would definitely return here again and again.

Date of Stay:

Part of the access road is unpaved. Sites are laid out in a circle with parallel parking; therefore, there was little privacy or shade. Very little Verizon signal [text only]. The high point was the paved trail along the Rim, with breathtaking vistas. Would visit this campground again.
