I stayed here with my RV club and was impressed by the immaculate grounds and amenities. It's not a destination park (yet) but is still pretty new. Trees aren't grown up yet and they need signage on the road but they are trying to gather more business. Very friendly people and the park is super well maintained. Where have you seen a dog washing station in an RV park? The facilities and kitchen for groups are perfect. They have plans for a complete museum, hotel, airfield and more in the future but only the RV park is done for now. As some others have said, the only downside is the wind that comes up every afternoon but it might be a bonus during hotter weather. The sites are spacious and have grass and tables. I don't think I saw a weed anywhere!

We wanted to get into Bullards Beach but it was full, so we checked this website (as usual) and saw that this park had good ratings. It really is a nice park, don't be put off by the crowded trailers in front. The pull-throughs in back are very spacious with lots of grass, some of the largest sites I've seen. Lots of lawn areas and very friendly and helpful new managers. Very quiet park, we had no complaints. Stayed there 2 nights. There are a lot of park model houses there but this is a very big park, lots of room.

I really wanted to like this park but can't quite bring myself to give it high ratings. The gal at check-in was just a sweetheart but the sites left a lot to be desired. Maybe OK for a stopover but the park is mainly filled with long term units. They say pull-through but I couldn't do it with the other people's cars parked in the way. Had to unhook the tow and back out, although some sites are better and had more room. It was very quiet and there is a lot of shade, I guess I'd stop there again but choose my site more carefully instead of taking the one assigned to me. There were some larger units with toads that could pull through from their spaces. Pick an end spot if you can; they have more room.

We've stayed there twice so far, once with a club and this month on our own while traveling. A first class park, still pretty new with small trees but grassy sites and beautiful pool and spa. The facilities are first class and immaculate. There is highway noise; maybe it's better in the back, I don't know. Nice walk down to the river and very close to shopping. In fact, you drive through the shopping center parking lot to get to the park. Next door to a Shari's restaurant, which is very good.

Their regular rate is $40 but there is a discount if you get the players card. This is really an outstanding park, super clean and the facilities are first class. Grass, trees, casino and shuttle, all you could want in a park of this style. We ate at the casino but were more impressed with the cafe at the gas station, good food and service-I think better than the casino. The fuel was the cheapest anywhere in the area and there is a 3 cent discount with the players card. For sure I'd stay there again.

We were here for 3 days and were lucky enough to get a site without a reservation. We could only check in for 2 days at a time and you have to renew every two days if you can. When we got there the first night we couldn't get a site and went back outside of town to Pegleg Road where we were able to boondock for one night, then we were able to get in the campground. The campground is very nice, palm trees everywhere, and you're right in the middle of the desert. Sunrise/sunsets are spectacular and the park is really quiet. Borrego Springs is a "dark sky" town so you can really see the stars at night. I think if I go back, which I will, I'd try to get one of the dry sites in the upper canyon, numbered 90 and above, since in a motorhome we can go dry for several days and use their water and dump stations. No matter where, it's a super campground.

This is one of the nicest parks I've stayed in; really clean and everyone very friendly. We are not fans of the snowbird type of parks, but this one is very nice. If you're into it, there are so many activities that you can be busy all the time. Two nice pools (bathtub temp), spa, meeting rooms, gym, etc., all available. Free wi-fi. They guide you to your site and help back in so you don't knock over the utilities. There are two sides, one gravel the other lawn. We got the gravel but I think if I were there longer I'd opt for the grass. Lots of folks walking dogs all the time, and two large off-leash play areas. Even though we were there in the tail end of the snowbird season, they still honored our Passport America rate which is a bargain for this type of park. The only annoyance was no garbage cans anywhere, only dumpsters at the front of the park but it's not a big issue. Another nice thing, there aren't any "owner" cabins or spaces, everything is a rental so there is no stigma for those of us just passing through. For sure I'd stay there again if in the area.

If you're visiting the Borax or Aerospace museums in Boron, it's an ok place to stay for a nigh,t but I don't think I'd stay much longer. Several of the sites are long term residents, I don't consider this park an "oasis'" It's just a place to park safely for the night with hookups. The manager was very nice and helpful, but the town is not very appealing, to say the least. There is a lot of history here, which is interesting, and the museums are worth seeing. By the time you do all that you will want a place to stay nearby. This works OK for that. We used Passport America at $20 which was a bit higher than listed but still OK.

What can you say, it's a place to park that's close to a big casino and there are over 700 spaces, so you can usually get a spot. We were crammed in next to others. If you have a slideout you may be just a few feet from your neighbor, plus their car or truck may be right outside your door. On the plus side, there is a shuttle down to the casino, dogs are ok, and they have cable TV and full hookups. We took a ride down to the casino a few miles out of town and liked it better. If we ever go back to Laughlin we'll stay there instead. (My wife liked the feel of the casino better as they seem to have a nicer RV park, and a beautiful lagoon on the river.)

Our first time here, but we'll be back. The nicest people and a really clean park. Rates are reasonable and discounts for cash and the usual ones. The place is really big, but you're not crowded, and we had lots of oranges in Feb. The lodge is the best I've seen anywhere plus free coffee and donuts in the am.

we stayed at this park with a group of about 15 motorhomes. We used their facilities to have our meetings and dinners and the meeting room was filthy. There was a dead mouse behind the stove and my wife had a cockroach crawling up her arm at the table. Also the sink was plugged for 3 days and we had to take our dishes over 2 bldgs away to wash them. The park itself is not bad with lots of room but if you are holding a meeting there I think I would change my mind.

For $15 it's a place to stay in town, I think more quiet than the ones outside of town on Hwy 50 with all the trucks. At least they slow down through downtown so it's pretty quiet. No frills, just a parking lot with hookups. Wi-Fi is pretty slow but it's there, no TV. For a one night stay I think it's just fine, we're there right now and will prob go in the casino for breakfast. There are only two RV's in the park right now, so I don't think they're too busy most of the time.

I was impressed with the cleanliness and orderliness of the park. I think it's the best in the town, large enough sites, game room for the kids, free coffee, the most immaculate rest rooms I've seen in an RV park. A bit pricey but the whole town is that way. Really close to the town and the west entrance, very friendly staff and helpful. Reservations are a good idea, we had a medical issue and tried to stay longer but they were completely booked up and we had to move to another park in town, but they gave us suggestions that helped. One issue-mosquitoes, maybe it's the month of July but we couldn't stay outside long and even our dog got bitten all over his nose. Otherwise I'd recommend it for sure.

We hit Austin in the late afternoon and looked for a place for the night. The two in town didn't look too inviting so we checked websites and found this park, just 4.5 miles East of town on Hwy 50. Small park, some pull-throughs, some back-ins but super quiet, a really nice little place to stay. There is water at several spigots, rest rooms with flush toilets but no frills. Just a nice, quiet place to stay for a day or more. I think it's either BLM or Forest Service and that includes 50% discount for Golden Age pass ($5).

We stayed here for two nights, didn't have a reservation but they had a spot available for us. The park was pretty full and the sites are kind of nice, trees between most of them and lots of shade. It's a real mom & pop operation (maybe just pop) but friendly and helpful. No credit cards, cash only and I think they're a bit high but the whole area is high during the high season. It's a little away from town to walk in, but a quick drive. Rest rooms were really clean, and the park pretty well maintained. I'd stay again but hopefully with a discount. For a night or two they don't offer any. I realize their season is short and they have to make it up when they can.
