Rustic, but very friendly staff. Right on Business 10 in Quartzsite which is a town of about 5000 full time residents whose population swells to close to a million every January and February when they host a couple of big RV and Mineral shows. Most folks dry camp on BLM land, but if you are in the mood for something slightly more formal then B-10 is fine. Essentially it is an enormous expanse of gravel with a few cinder block buildings for showers, laundry, office etc. Sites in the "back" may offer sewer hookups, otherwise there is a dump on the facility. The staff is great-friendly and make free coffee daily. Campfires are permitted at your site, plus there are some community fire rings around. You are about a 2-3 minute drive to the "Big Tent" for the RV show.

Nothing to write home about. Right on a busy street, bordered by a Harley dealership, industrial park, and elevated, very busy train trestle-freight and commuter. 10 minute walk to a public beach, homeless people prevalent. Gang activity present in parking lot of beach/public park. Beach OK, dangerous undertow right in front of the Lifeguard Tower. Staff are for the most part aloof and arrogant, if not downright hostile. The one saving grace is that Cole Sampson, the owner's son, has taken over the helm and has a pretty good handle on customer service. He's also a lot brighter than the old management "team," and will hopefully turn the staff's attitudes around--lot's of anger there! Otherwise this park is your typical "old" RV park- small tight spaces, very few 50 amp service spots. Nice pool and jacuzzi, a lot of effort is put into groundskeeping, but beware there are too few dumpsters and they always overflow. WiFi OK. High prices tend to keep the "dirtbags" out. Carlsbad/Legoland about a 15 minute drive. Stayed here off and on for the past 5 years and can't think of a restaurant I'd recommend in Oceanside. There's nothing within walking distance of this park, oh and I forgot--watch out for the ants!

Clean, well maintained, and reasonably priced. Natural spring fed hot tub is something different. Not much to do in the area, but very peaceful and relaxing. Park staff was top notch.

This is really 2 parks in one. The first is up front by the office and is primarily short term and transient- the second is across the stream and is a nicely manicured, well treed combination RV and Mobile Home Park that is about 70%RV and 30%MH. There are quite a few "permanent" residents in RV's in the long-term area also. Mostly military retirees and some active duty with the usual contingent of snowbirds it is a very quiet and friendly park. Watch out for the speed bumps, though, they are killer! The owner/ manager is friendly and helpful and keeps a very close eye on things.

CLOSED. They turned it into single family homes.
