This is a great place to camp. The views are incredible, the entire park is full of trees and somewhat-dead but often-watered lawn (this is in the desert), and it's a wonderful place to go with kids and dogs. Right outside of the park you can take your dogs off-leash to run. We love this park and have discovered that it's even better in the fall as there aren't many people there. In the winter, it's packed with snowbirders who are there for months at a time. While there are no septic hookups, you can pay extra to have your tank pumped 3x a week during weekdays only, or haul it to the septic hookup in the park to empty your tank. Wi-Fi is so-so here; better if you are near the office, but views are better at the opposite end.

This is primarily a concrete park. It is more like a mobile home park than an RV park, with lots of permanent renters, in the middle of the city. It is near an airport and right on the main road. That said, it is a fine place for an overnighter or if you need to be in the region. Most of the park is asphalt but there are quite a few trees. Check-in was very quick. The Wi-Fi is acceptable (a bit slow). The park felt safe. We would stay here again.

This is a gorgeous park -- full of lush green lawns and trees. The A loop is more well traveled and noisier than other loops. The lake view side has a lot of permanent RVs, but they're very nicely kept. There is no real Wi-Fi here. They don't have Wi-Fi in this expensive 5-star park, for some reason. They advertise as having it in the laundry room, but it doesn't work. They have a free laptop and ports in the office. (That's very out-of-date and surprising for such an otherwise great park.) They're very security-conscious, with a "guard" at the gate. Guests are quiet early in the evening. I've been here before and would stay here again.

This park is a very short walk up the hill from downtown Historic Bisbee. The spaces are not far apart, but you aren't packed in like sardines, either. It's a relatively quiet park, not too close to the freeway and no where near any airports or trains, unlike many RV parks. Children and dogs are welcome, too. There is a dog walk for walking dogs. There is no place for children to play, but the park is not near any roads, either; it's literally on top of a hill with no thru traffic. If you're traveling in an RV and want to see Bisbee (which I'd highly recommend), this is THE place to stay.

Clean park, well kept. Very close to highway. Very small place, no amenities, no place for children to play. In town. Room to walk dogs behind the park. Good for a stopover to see Joshua Tree National Park.

The park is clean and green. It's more of a full-time resident park rather than a vacation RV park. We were handed a couple of dozen pages of rules. The park is near a fairly busy road and also has planes flying overhead. Children are to be kept next to your RV, so it's safe to say it's not really child-friendly. It's quite suitable for a one-night stay. We felt safe here. The residents are quiet. Both restrooms were closed for repairs. Wi-Fi is no longer free: It's $3.99/day or you can buy a weekly or monthly Tengo plan. The Wi-Fi is strong.

This park has it all: it's immaculate, it has Wi-Fi, full hookups, a huge laundry room, a huge pool, a gym, a fenced dog park (separate for the size of dog), several large TV's and lounge areas. Plus, on weekends they have dinners you can buy for $8 or so in the dining room. There are tons of social activities. The place was full of RVs of all sizes. And both staff and guests are very friendly. Typical of Arizona, there was minimal grass (but what there was was wonderfully green) and lots of rock, but the park was also landscaped with beautiful cactus. And it was spotless! There is some train noise, but it wasn't significant. Only one problem: we moved midway through our stay because we extended it, and the Wi-Fi wasn't as strong as in the far back right corner. If Wi-Fi is seriously important, the back right corner seemed to be a better spot for it.

Lovely state park with very large sites, large, new bathrooms. Water/electric only; dump station. Lots of fairly easy to hike trails. Very quiet even when at capacity. Close to shopping. We would certainly return here.

Super quiet, good-sized spots, very popular winter destination for snowbirds. Beautiful sunsets. Lovely views. Some permanent RVs in one part of the campground. Large campground. Very pet friendly. Many places to walk dogs off leash right outside of the campground. This place literally shuts down around 7 p.m. - it's very quiet all night. We've camped here before and will return.

Date of Stay:

Large dirt sites in an old ghost town. The town itself is a short walk up the hill and is a neat tourist attraction. Lots of places to roam and walk dogs. The camp is kept very clean. It's in a quiet area.

We were one of two rvs in this park in Jan. 2012. It's very well kept. It's hard to find, however; although it's on Chance, there is no signage. Look for the guard shack at the gate. We rated this a 6 because there is a nearby train, and the fairgrounds is next to the CA Air National Guard and those planes are loud at night. If you're just looking for a one-nighter, this place is a good deal for the price. There is also plenty of dog walking room.

We have been camping at Dillon Beach (Lawson's Landing!) since the 1950s. It's our #1 favorite place. Lawson's is completely rural. You drive in, fill up your water tank, and find a place to park. It's all open --mostly green pasture land -- with no designated spaces. (There are some way in the back by the Marina that may have actual designated spaces, but for the most part, it's just "find a place you like and set up camp." There is no electricity. RVers use generators. There is a dump station to use on the way out. If you're looking for a place with fabulous restrooms, lots of services, and full hook-ups, this is not the place for you. If you want some place absolutely beautiful where kids can run around and make noise, where you can walk your dogs off leash on the beach (most people do this), and where you can create family memories, this IS the place for you. There's a marina with a dock at the end of the road with lots of fishing and boating. There's also a great little store just before you get to Lawson's, with a nice restaurant next door.

Another reviewer stated that Lawson's has ocean views. Most people camp on the dune side, which doesn't have an ocean view. Some (monthlies?) park near the Marina, which has a fabulous view. We've been camping here for 25 years in tents and a trailer; my husband's family has camped here since the 50s. This is a fabulous place if you love being near the ocean, don't want to feel boxed in (warning: summer weekends, it's crowded), and don't mind that you don't have any hookups AT ALL. RV camping is best for stays of longer than a day or two. You fill your tank when you come in and use the dump station when you leave. There are only a few water spigots so tent camping = roughing it. There are only a few restrooms but many outhouses. We travel all over the US and Lawson's is by far our favorite retreat. It's a fabulous place for dogs and kids, too. Great for walks. I can't say enough good things about it.

This is a fabulous place to take children since there’s a fenced pool and enough space to ride bikes. Kids are every where. The park is literally right next to the freeway (you can see the tops of the trucks going by) so noise is constant; however, you get used to it. It is particularly kid-loud in the RV spaces next to the pool. This is a dog-friendly park. Dumpsters are emptied really early – 6:30 a.m. or so. The RV sites are tiny: about the width of a 2-car driveway. The park is conveniently located. It has strong WiFi. Also, there’s a mini farm with a free “petting zoo” type of atmosphere right next door (a short walk away) where you can buy produce, hot dogs, and treats, and also pet goats, sheep, a pony, etc. While we prefer nearby El Chorro Regional Park because it has large sites, privacy, costs less, and it is super quiet, we would stay here again if El Chorro were not available and if we couldn't find a site at one of the nearby RV parks in Grover Beach and area.

Cleanest bathrooms we've ever seen. Spotless! Good sized gated dog run. Very well kept park. Some freeway noise but not bad. Slept well here. Will definitely return.
