I disagree with the previous comments. We found the staff extremely friendly and helpful. We attended the boot camp for three days and stayed here for five days. There were scheduled activities every day (other then boot camp). There is no longer a separate fee charged for electricity. Not much ambiance but a typical desert park. All sites are gravel back ins. Our site was level. We would stay here again.

Date of Stay:

One of the nicest campgrounds we've stayed at. Hosts extremely helpful. We stayed here off and on several times this winter. Will definitely stay here again.

This park is primarily for long term use. The staff was extremely friendly. They only had a couple of "back ins" when we reserved the site and only had 50 amp service. They did provide a converter so I could use my 30 amp line. This is a "gated" RV park and the gate closes at sunset. It seemed a bit pricey to me, but I am cheap.

OK for an overnight stay. Small campground but does have pull-throughs that are level. Close to Boyce Thompson Arboretum. Friendly staff. They do have a laundry (get the key) and propane on site. Will stay here again, especially if going to Boyce Thompson or the Renaissance fair.

I disagree with other reviews. The staff and owner were very friendly and helpful. They have a winter rate through February. Our rate reflected electricity and water only. The site was level, and they had a very clean shower/restroom. We stayed here last year and will stay here again. Also you get a free cookie on check-in.

Extremely nice park. We got partial hookups electric and water. There is a nice little lake with coots, ducks, herons, and other waterfowl. We will definitely stay here in the future.

Excellent RV park. Extremely friendly. Clean showers & laundry room. Rate is for good Sam. Actually located in Ocotilla Wells. Will stay here again.

The park itself is nice but in the winter many of the sites are closed. Only a small section of the campground is available for camping and people were pretty close. Be careful not to run your generator, even though permissible, as some people will complain. This is the only campground we have ever stayed at where you need to purchase a permit at a store or the ranger station. We arrived after all were closed and checked with the camp host, who could not sell us a permit or take our money. To me this is ridiculous as, with my senior permit, it only cost $4 to camp. We would have wasted twice money in gas to get the permit! I doubt we will camp here again.

As others have said, this is a beautiful park. My only complaint is the cost of making a reservation prior to coming. It is $25 if you just show up but every time we have come here the park was full. We needed to camp here so made advanced reservations, which cost an extra five bucks. If you want to camp here, be sure and arrive early to get a site (probably before noon). Even then you may have to park in the overflow for a day or two.

It is a nice little park, old but very friendly hosts. There are a lot of full time residents but we had no problem getting an overnight site. They don't have amenities such as Wi-Fi or TV but MUCH cheaper than the other two RV Campgrounds in town. For about half the cost I was willing to give up Wi-Fi and TV. We would stay here again when going through the area.

Nothing fancy but an OK place to stay for a day or two. We stayed here while visiting Boyce Thompson. Electricity, dump, and water at sites. No TV or Wi-Fi. Very friendly staff. We would stay here again. Have a good week rate so would stay here if we visited Boyce Thompson for an extended period of time.

This is an acceptable campground for an overnight or two. Basically, a graveled parking lot with electric and dump. Level site. We had some work done at Camping World, which is next door. We also went to the races, about 10 miles away. If I had it to do again, I'd check out the race track first as there were about 3 sites open when we got there (only about 8 or so sites with hookups) but it only costs $10/night there - in a parking lot. This campground is well maintained though the manager was a bit "cranky". We'd stay here again if we needed to.

As others have said, the best thing going for it is the location to the Caverns. It was an acceptable campsite, level, with electricity and dump. The managers were friendly and helpful. The fudge in the grocery store was great. We've stayed in lots worse places. The only real negative is the price. Not worth $30 but cheaper than commuting to the further state park which I'd rate an 8+, All in all, we'd stay here again if we visit the Caverns.

Campground is located at the hunting lodge about 2 miles from the Inn of the Mountain Gods Casino. Can dry camp in the casino parking lot for free. "RV park" is a place to stay with hookups. Saw an elk in the morning.

Date of Stay:

Place to park for the night after viewing the Three Rivers petroglyph site. The owners are extremely friendly. Not much else around here except the petroglyphs.
