My comments are essentially the same as last year when I said, "For the past 20 or so years we have visited this park usually at least once during the year. It seems the only thing that has changed is the price. I have a problem in that sites are not designated for RVs only. I have a bigger problem in that I cannot see that any improvements have been made over the years. This year we had to settle for a spot way up the hill from the Marina, not at all level, and if ever there was an asphalt pad, it had disintegrated. We will continue to visit here, most likely, as we rent a lodge unit for our grown children. That makes the discomfort of a far too costly site, in my opinion, amidst tents, worth while. There seems to be no rules as to where boats can be parked, even intruding into space of others. My preference is that if it is an RV space, the space should be restricted to RVs, not whoever gets there first with however many tents. This year, trying to use the dump station would have been hilarious, if not so frustrating. The person before me, 20-30 mintues later, was still in the process of dumping tanks. When he started hosing out the inside of his dump hose, I left, figuring I would find another place to dump my tanks. In short, this place needs lots of improving and monitoring to make sure rules are enforced.

If I were rating this based on reception from office personnel, from time I called to check-in, it would be a ten. Other than that, I can't say much in favor of the place. I'm amused by the number of places that use the term "resort" for a campground out in the dirt. Any place that today does not offer Wi-Fi will never get a high rating from me. Though Wi-Fi was advertised, I could never get to the Internet though I did get a message I was connected.

We camped in Site 13. Though it had an asphalt pad, it required some leveling on one side. Not very busy even though it is the summer season. My primary purpose was to do geocaching and there were enough caches scattered about to make the trip worthwhile. For a public campground, this is very well done. Had it offered Wi-Fi, I would have kicked the rating up a notch.

We visit this park at least a couple time each year and will continue to do so. It does, however, need upgrading. Interior road through the Lynch campground is eroding away. Spaces are not level and asphalt has eroded away in most places. We had the entire campground to ourselves the two days we were here. Lots of wild animals, including deer and wild turkeys. There are two geocaches, difficult to get to, and not within walking distance of Lynch campground. Still, I managed though I need a cane to get about.

Rate is based on Golden Age Passport. We arrived about noon on a Sunday. Most all campers had departed though the remnants still there seemed to have been a noisy group. By nightfall, all weekend campers had left and the campground contained only three campers, all arrived during the afternoon and all departed by early morning. Gang symbol XIV noted scrawled on a fixture in a lavatory. Lavatories and showers are tiled but by end of day not very clean. Well laid out campground with paved interior road. Rather tight with boulders on side of road but sites are angled in a way that backing in with a motorhome is easy. Might be more difficult with a 5th wheel. Great place for hiking. The major problem is gnats and flies that makes it difficult to stay outside.

Great place! We were in area with hook-ups which was filled to capacity. Obviously, a reservation is desired if you want hook-ups. Lots of open sites in rest of park, however. Previous reviewer commented it's within walking distance of town. I suspect it is as I walked about three quarters of a mile along the shoreline and then up a path that led into a residential area. Finally I ended in a small park that had steps leading to the beach. I suspect one could get to town that way. I was very impressed with the masonry work, done by the CCC's during the Depression era in the 1930s.

Of the many places that use the word "resort" in their name this is one that in my opinion can rightly say it is a resort. The office staff was gracious. One young woman even led me outside and showed me a spot where it was possible to get cell connection. The Gift Store is attractive and well stocked. Parking on a concrete site with grass all around is nice, making it possible to hook-up without getting in dirt or mud. Connecting cable TV was bit difficult as the box with a cover is right next to the ground. Not much with TV reception though. My GPS took me off to the left up a narrow country road several hundred yards before reaching the park. When I recovered, the GPS then said the park was some 8 miles straight ahead. Actually it was to the left in clear sight. Since the cell reception was spotty to non-existent I rate this park a 9 rather than a 10, fully aware that it is not the park's fault that cell reception is not adequate. Price is Good Sam discount.

This seemingly is an older park with lots of old units and what appears to be permanent residents. What I particularly liked was the new 20 site area set aside for over-nighters. It has truly been designed for easy hook-up with a pole that contains all outlets. Hooking the sewer hose and water hose is all that makes one bend down. Pads are of concrete and the islands in between sites are of gravel. Interior roads paved. Good Wi-Fi and lots of TV stations. Price was right for sure. Next to train tracks so there is train noise, as there is traffic noise from major streets.

Rather than paved interior roads roads and parking sites are of gravel, though level and well maintained. It is configured so that vehicles have to park nose to nose in most spaces, making things very close when slides go out. To the right is an island with concrete curbs and a concrete walk the entire length on both sides. There is a huge tree in each island though barren of leaves at this time and the island is of lawn. There is a picnic table and barbecue. This island is shared with the vehicle on the other side of the island, again making things very neighborly. Few people while there so no problem. Office personnel answered my email inquiry and the woman at the desk was pleasant and helpful. Cable TV and free Wi-Fi though Wi-Fi will not allow sending out mail with any attachments apparently as my computer crashed each try after several minutes. Because of the Wi-Fi not doing what I wanted it to do I will rate this park a 6 at best. The cover to the electrical box was broken, with the brads that holds covers on missing. Thus, when attempting to get to the electrical outlet the entire cover fell out. This is not a park I would stay at again considering what is provided for the price.

A beautiful spot on the Colorado River. Store/Arcade/Restaurant are nearby. All sites are back-ins but configured in a way it is easy to do. For history buffs, a visit to the community of Postson northwest of Parker could be of interest as one can view the remnants of the internment facility, where some 17,000 people of Japanese descent, mostly American citizens, were interned during World War II. There is also a monument just north of the community of Postson. I would give this a 10 were Wi-Fi available, even if provided by an outside source for a fee.

My review is based as one who travels rather than lives in a box on wheels. Accordingly, this is not a park for an overnighter. Arriving at 2 PM, there was no one in office to provide information but rather a self-registration. Site does have concrete patio but in between rocks. Not a good view at all. At best, I give this place a 5 as it does have good Wi-Fi and lots of TV stations.

I will give this park a rating of 7 at best as it is geared more toward snow-birders and permanents than over nighties. There is a toilet/shower facility somewhere in the park for sure but not readily accessible. Wi-Fi provided by an outside source for $4.95 a day. Was easy to make reservation and woman in office very nice. Escorted to site and assisted with backing in. About 10 miles from Yuma.

Great place! Wi-Fi available through AT&T for $7.95 per day. Visitor Center within walking distance across the desert, .6 mile, on a concrete walk. Beautiful area though a bit cold at night. Rest room very basic with cinder block walls and cement floors. There were paper towels though rather than the usual electric hand dryers. Showers required 25 cents for two minutes. If you depend on GPS for direction enter address as I ended up in another part of the park, some 15-20 miles out of my way. Spaces are pull-throughs and about 30 feet apart with the distance in between sites covered with desert vegetation. Woman at gate was pleasant and helpful. A place certainly worth visiting.

This is "camping" for sure without any of the amenities we've come to expect. Campground is within walking distance of the Visitor Center where there is free Wi-Fi. Ranger personnel at Visitor Center are very pleasant and helpful. Park is quiet at night. Not much shade and lots of dirt. Rate is Golden Age Passport. Garmin GPS directed me to turn toward the old Borax mine several hundred yards before the actual turn into the campground.
