This is a wonderful RV Park. I didn't give it a 10 because there is no pool. When the pavement ends you'll hit a section that is very washboardy. Even doing 5 MPH I kicked up a huge amount of dust. We were very surprised when we checked our level and didn't have to do anything other than put our stabilizers down. The sites are terraced and set in such a way that for the most part each site has a view. Most sites have a small grass area and tree between them with a table and barbeque grill. Wi-Fi is good although we have had periods where we couldn't get on. Our Dish worked great as did our over the air antenna. The laundry room is not very large. It has two washers and dryers, the type found in RVs - washer on the bottom and dryer on the top. It's been nice to come home at the end of a sightseeing day and watch the gorgeous sunsets from our site. The highway and railroad tracks are not far from the park and you can hear them. Our first night my husband didn't hear anything (no surprise), I heard at least 3 train whistles and I think there was more (yes I'm a light sleeper). This is a perfect location for seeing things in the area.

We arrived after hours and were told to go through the Rambo Gate. Took security about 10 - 15 mins. for them to open the gate. Pulled in and they open all the bays and then they went through our rig before we could go any further. You will need to turn in any weapons while you're on base. The camp host was friendly and met us as we drove in. He advised us we would need to go into overflow until a space opened up. The overflow area was full of weeds and holes, which made walking a bit of a challenge. There were numerous vehicles also parked in the overflow area. The camp host came by the following morning and advised there was a space opening up and we could move as soon as they left. The laundry room was clean. Watering was being done via hoses moved around by the camp host. We were a few sites away from the laundry room in the trees and our satellite worked fine.

The base is very easy to get to from Hwy 58. You will go under a train trestle just off of Hwy 58, the height sign says its 14’. The park is very clean and the camp host very welcoming. You share the hook-up area with the neighboring site which makes the driver’s side slide outs of your RV inches from your neighbors. We used 2 electrical cords due to the length from the back of our rig to the electrical box. There are 2 roads inside the park, a perimeter road and an interior ring so rigs can pull in from either direction. Parking of your TV or toad should NOT protrude onto the perimeter/interior roadway. There was an individual in a Class A who parked his toad in front of his rig on the interior road, while we were there, which impeded our ability to stay on the roadway. We enjoyed our stay and will return.

Close to Disney World and Universal Studio. Just past a KOA Campground. The people were friendly. This is a private, family owned park. They have 282 full hook-up sites, 30/50 amp. The park looks a bit dated, but appears they are trying to update it by building vacation cabins to purchase, then rent out when you're not there. The roads were VERY narrow and the sites close together. At 60' long, if anyone had been parked on the road or in front of their rig we wouldn't have been able to get by. I had no choice but to drive on their grass in order to get our rig in. I'm not saying I wouldn't stay here again, just be aware before you commit to coming here if you’re a big rig. It's right next to Hwy 4, so there may be road noise. Amenities include a heated pool, exercise room. During the Snow Bird season, they have scheduled activities, a Saturday morning pancake breakfast and afternoon hot dogs. The laundry room is open 24/7 with 16 washers and dryers.

Easy on/off I-10. People there were friendly. We had no noise issues from hwy, trains, dogs etc. Would be nice if it had some trees for shade.

The FamCamp is right next to the main gate. The BX & Commissary are close enough for a good walk to. They also have Diesel on base. All the sites are gravel back-ins with grass and well spaced so you're not on top of each other. Plan on the office being closed when you arrive as their open hours are very odd.

We looked at the resort with the same name, first. What they had available was in the employee housing area. With a total length of 60' maneuvering around their roads was not worth risking damaging our rig. This Furnace Creek NPS Campground was much nicer then that resort or Stovepipe Wells. It was great not having to run our generator and having water & sewer hook-ups. The campground was very easy getting in and parking. We will definitely return.

This was the 1st time to stay at an Escapees park. We only stayed overnight and were not impressed. The sites for over night guest are all back-ins and the entire area is gravel. There was an additional $3 charge for electricity. Considering how far off Hwy 93 it is, the next time we'll stay in Wickenburg.

This was our second time here. The 1st night we were in the overflow area. Which wasn't bad at all. We moved to site 41 the next night. Won't do that area of the park again! The electrical box is on the concrete slab you're supposed to park on. It was a major pain to try an get the 5th wheel on the slab and not hit the electrical box (several boxes have been hit and were bent over). The park is close to a lot of things to see and do. We found we love with Tucson and will definitely be returning.

Our visits to Pahrump have been to visit family. Our first time here was in Dec. 2012, we had site #23 and loved it. It was quiet and right next to the laundry & showers. Our Dish Tailgater & Verizon MiFi 4G worked great. Our next visit was in Feb.2013, this time we had site #155 which had constant traffic going by and about as far from the laundry & showers as you could get. It did have a “lake view” which you get to pay extra for if that’s your thing. The staff and guests have been very friendly on each visit. It appears to be very family & dog friendly with enough things to keep the kids happy. The laundry and showers were clean. If you don’t have your own Wi-Fi, or satellite TV and you want it you’ll have to pay extra for that also. Only one park out of the 28 parks we've stayed at over the past year and a half of full timing did not include free Wi-Fi & cable TV. It is a “pretty” park and appears to be a good place for families with kids, and those that are on “vacation”; however, there are other RV parks in the area that may be better suited to the non-gambling full-timer who is only in need of laundry, Wi-Fi, cable, or a place to rest before moving on.

Date of Stay:

The first RV park as you're coming into town from the west, and the last RV park if coming from the east. Full hook-ups, large pull-throughs with picnic tables. Free Wi-Fi worked OK with some interruptions. OK for an overnight stop. Entire park is dirt/gravel. Wouldn’t want to be here in high winds. They offer absolutely no discounts of any kind, which made it one of the most expensive parks we’ve stayed at. We’ll be trying the RV park at the other end of town on our return trip.

Date of Stay:

Park is nothing special & overpriced. They charge an extra $1 day (per pet) even for cats. There "free" internet is only at the office area. We will not return to this park nor advise anyone else to use this park.

This is a fantastic park and the people are very friendly. This is a Cal-Am Resort. This resort has impressed us so much that we are now looking for other Cal-Am Resorts to stay at. We used our Passport America 50% discount for our stay. There are so many things to do here that you can't say you’re bored with nothing to do. If you’re in need of some separation then hubby can do his thing and the wife can do her thing.

Pads for your rig are very narrow. Check sites first to be sure you can make your turns without hitting anything. Depending on the site you choose (pull throughs) you WILL run over there concrete slab if your rig is large - 37'+. If you need to use there showers be sure to check them first. I took pictures of there showers/restroom to prove how filthy they where when we were there.

Date of Stay:

Staff was friendly and accommodating. Park is right next door to Costco. If you need your propane filled they can do it there.
