We stayed at this park in June of 2014 when it was 109 degrees and with everything dry or dead, including the palm trees, there were only a few coaches in the park making it look like a barren wasteland. Still we felt it had "good bones" so we decided to return and see what it was like in Feb. when the temp was a tad lower. What a difference! And viva la difference! The park was almost full to capacity. Everything was green and lush and the three small ponds were also full and looking very good. This is a great park for either a one night stand or for several days or more. Only negative we have is that trying to reach them by phone is near on impossible as it was our first time here. Nine times out of ten you are going to get a recording telling you to either call back or leave a message so be prepared for that. Other than that one small negative, we will definitely be using this park as a stopover on our Arizona desert trip each Feb. Nice wide spaces, lots of grass with concrete pads and good h0okups, etc. We didn't use the clubhouse or any of the other amenities this park advertises but we did walk around a bit and it really is a very nice park overall. Also very quiet at night even tho it is located in busy trafficked area..........................

I'll make this one short. A wonderful park tied in with a really nice casino and golf course/restaurant facility. Spotless grounds, restrooms, and spaces. Manicured and in a very nice setting. We would have given this park a 10 but for the fact that for $55 there was no table, bench or chairs at the spaces and one would think that for this amount, they would be provided, especially when you are just there for the one night and don't feel like dragging out all your own stuff, etc. This park also charges a $5 per day pet fee on top of the somewhat high nightly charges already being paid. I asked the clerk why this was and was told it was because they had to go around and police the RV area for pet droppings. I thought this was a pretty lame excuse. Other than that one thing, we would definitely stay there again and stay a bit longer to enjoy some the casino offerings.

We decided to try this park for one night based upon past reviews but quickly found out that this is by no stretch of the imagination, a "resort". We made a reservation and were told it depended on the day we arrived as to what the rate would be. And when we did arrive we found that the space that was assigned to our Class A full slide Motorhome was not near wide enough and backing in would have been a not so good experience. So I went back and got another space on the "upper level". A tad bit longer and wider that the first one we were able to back in and get hooked up. Then we noticed the neighbors next to us who had their laundry out to dry on racks scattered around their RV. Kids bikes and various toys scattered everywhere and one bike I had to move before attempting to back in. No table or bench available and just the basic hookups were there to use. Whatever this park was supposed to have been in the past is no longer what it has become today. A major rip off for what you get IMNO. Will never stay there again and if you are in the area and thinking about staying there my advice to you is to "drive on" and find something else.

We decided to stay one night at this state park on our way to another destination. We wanted to check it out for a possible return visit next year. The RV park area itself? It's wonderful. The spaces are widely separated and getting in and out is a breeze for even the biggest rigs. We will definitely stay here again for a few days next year on our desert trip.

We decided to try this park on our way home and were pleasantly surprised at what we found. Situated out in back of the casino itself the park is far enough away from the interstate so that traffic noise is not a concern. All hookups worked fine and we had end space #26 which had plenty of room on the neighbor's side and a wide open area on the other. The security patrol comes to your space and gives you a ride to the casino and back and were there withing just a few minutes of calling them. Excellent buffet breakfast and at a reasonable price also. When we arrived the park was probably half full but by dark it was full to capacity and this was on a Sunday night. Will definitely stay here again if it works out time-wise on a future trip.................

What a great little park...!!! Heading north on I-5 we decided to try this park due to the excellent reviews it has been given by others. We arrived late in the afternoon and had made a reservation due to the limited number of overnight spaces available, usually only 6 to 8. We were met by a very friendly and helpful staff and the owner personally escorted us to our site. Very clean and well kept grounds and surrounding areas and the space itself was clean, easy to get in and out of and all hookups worked great. There is a well stocked general store where you check in. The park itself is about a 1/3rd of a mile off of the interstate so there is no traffic noise to be heard. Just silence and a good night's rest after a long day of driving. We will definitely stay here again the next time we are in the area and need to toss out the anchor for the night. I can understand why some folks stay for extended periods as it is like RVing right out in nature itself.

We used this park due to its convenience to family we were visiting in the area. Quaint little park with a lot of permanents but they were friendly and in one instance very helpful with a slight problem we had. Great little store on site that is used by the general public as well so it has many more items than most RV park stores do. We bought several items there. A really nice pool area and a small seasonal lake that gets all covered with algae and scum, etc. when not cleaned. The space was a tad tight to squeeze our Class A into but we managed. A small table is provided and hookups are convenient and okay. Would probably stay again when we are back in the area to visit but only then as there are much nicer parks further away.

This was a one nighter for us and we had no reservations. The park was pretty full when we pulled in and we ended up in what they call a premium space. We saw very little, if any, difference in it and the deluxe spaces close by but again, with no reservations we took what we could for the night. Nice park but a tad cramped and to us it seemed like a "busy body" atmosphere. We had no sooner hooked up and a couple came over and invited us to join them for a glass of wine. Nice gesture of course and we did take them up on their offer but didn't stay long as we were tired from driving, etc. Several other folks came by to find out as much as they could about us and we got a couple of other invites to stop by. Lots of party type folk seem to hang out at this park which is really not our thing when we travel. I guess we are a couple of old "stick-in-the-muds". We didn't use the facilities as we left early the next morning. We would stay here again if we passed thru the area at a time when we wanted to stop for the day but would not make it a final destination or a lengthy stay of any duration. A bit pricey for what we could see and they do tack on a $3/day electric charge which was a bit of a "shock" to us as most parks don't do this, or at least if they do it isn't shown as a separate charge. Overall it's an okay park to drop the anchor for a night. Hookups all worked fine for us in the space we were in and it is convenient to outside stores, local attractions, and gas, etc. The check in staff was friendly and helpful which is always nice.

We have stayed at this state campground twice in the past will continue to go back in the coming years. Situated just southwest of Tucson it is a really beautiful park to camp in. Wide paved roads inside the campground and many different spaces to choose from in three distinct loops. We stayed at the top of Loop A which is higher up and the view to the south from there is spectacular. Lots of area to walk with specifically marked trails that from the park out into the desert should you choose to do a hike or nature walk, etc. No water hookups but there are water spigots with hose attachments spaced throughout the park that you are free to use to fill your tank if you have a hose to run to them. Very close to the Old Tucson movie studios where many of the old westerns were filmed. About a file mile drive to the nearest markets and stores and there are several small cafes and restaurants to choose from also and many souvenir shops of course. This is our very favorite place to spend a week. And a week is all you get as you have to leave and stay away for a week before you can get back in. No reservations, first come first served basis only. Nothing like a typical RV park or resort, but every bit as nice and probably one of the quietest campgrounds you'd ever stay at. Peaceful, serene, with nature at its finest. Just be very careful walking around or a cactus will definitely jump out and bite the crap out of you. And yes those cactus needles really do hurt!!!

Prior to choosing Boulder Creek RV Resort we read all the reviews and were impressed by the number of high marks given this park. For the most part the marks are spot on and indicate just how nice and how conveniently located this park is for those traveling the Hwy 395 corridor. It is easy to find and entry off the main road is also easy and convenient. There were no pull thrus available so we took a back in space which was fine by us. The space was narrow and lined with boulders on each side but we did have enough clearance. Unfortunately some low hanging Pine branches that we didn't notice did scratch the side of our full height coach and we had to have them trimmed to move any further. We were assigned another space which we had no problem getting into. The office gal did take pictures and when we got home I turned in an estimate to have the scratches buffed out and touched up. It took almost a month but we were sent a check to cover 2/3 of the cost to do this. We were very pleased that the owner did offer to pay this in lieu of the fact they do have a damage waiver we signed when checking in. This shows us the park does care about their customers and to having them return to enjoy this great area and their park. We didn't use the facilities but did buy some things at the neat and well stocked camp store. Even though this park is right on Hwy 395 it was very quiet at night. We had neighbors all around but nobody was noisy or out of line. It is a bit dusty as it is mostly gravel and dirt but the trees do make for some nice shade when the sun gets to doing its thing at 90 plus degrees. Overall we would definitely recommend this park and would stay here again. One can incur a paint scratch here and there in any park with trees and tight spaces but when it's handled as our situation was those scratches quickly become a distant memory. What you do remember is how nice the park was overall.

What a great little RV park! Right off Hwy 395 at Topaz Lake and adjacent to a lodge and casino. We reserved a pull-through site on the upper level and found it to be level and with a filtered view of the lake. Short walking distance to the casino where we enjoyed a very good breakfast. Steak and eggs for $5.95 and one of the best 6 ounce top sirloins I have ever eaten. Even though it is situated right next to Hwy 395 there is little to no road noise, so sleeping was restful and relaxed. Easy and convenient check-in at the general store right next to the park. We will most definitely make this one of our overnight stops next time we are traveling this route.

We called ahead to make our reservation for a one night stay. We had to call several times before someone answered the phone. We were told that they had been busy on another line making reservations. So when we pulled in we expected to see a fairly full park. Not so, there were about 6 RVs in the entire park, the place was like a morgue. Okay 'nuf of that, the park is nice but with a temp in Indio that day of 109 degrees and more to come in the days ahead, everything was brown and dried out due to the lack of water and severe drought. The staff of one was friendly enough and handled the registration, etc. quickly and efficiently. Our pull-through site was easy to find and we got hooked up in record time as I didn't want my brains fried out in that bake oven afternoon sun. No road noise that night, in fact it was dead silent other than the noise from our AC running on full all night long to keep us cool, so we slept very well. We would definitely use this park again next time we are in the Indio, however we will make sure it isn't during June, July or August due to the extreme heat.

This was a one-nighter for us and we picked it from the reviews we had read for the Needles area. An older retirement park with the majority of the sites being permanent residents. The site we were given was supposedly a view site, but the only view we had was of all the neighbors and a clubhouse directly across the road. Nice, helpful folks and we did have a good night's rest. Our space was a little tight for Class A but we managed and got hooked up with no problems, etc. The neighbors were friendly, also. One woman came by as we were hooking up and asked us if we were going to be staying a while and started telling us all about the various activities that go on in the park. When we told her we were just there for one night she seemed disappointed. Later we both said that perhaps they look forward to seeing new folks move in so they can find out lots of gossip to pass on about them, etc. Overall, we probably wouldn't stay there again as it is not our kind of park even tho we ourselves are seniors. Nothing against the park. It was fine for what we needed and would recommend it to anyone needing a clean and cozy spot for the night. We would have rated it higher had it not been so cramped feeling.

This was just an overnight stop for us on our way to the Tucson area. Nice park for the money and nice spot for an overnight stay. The folks who operate the park are friendly, and we were guided to our space by a guy who also came back with a large crescent wrench to remove the cap on the sewer inlet. It was stuck shut and ours was just not large enough. We did use the showers, which we rarely do, because our shower connection had broken inside on the road that day. They were clean and had good pressure. We could see the interstate from our space, but there was little to no noise to interrupt a great nights' sleep. Nice clubhouse and easy, quick access to the interstate. Will definitely stay here again when we pass thru next year.

Decided to give this one a try on our way north to Washington over Thanksgiving. Convenient, clean, great host who helped us park even though we didn't need help. Reasonably priced and convenient to get to and from the interstate. Only negative that there was considerable traffic noise, even though others have commented to the contrary. We were parked about mid park and the trees next to I-5 didn't do much to lessen the noise. Still, overall, for a one nighter this is a very nice park with nice facilities and management. Also, there is a nice little cafe plus a Subway shop within walking distance, and nice truck stop to fill up at if you need fuel. Would definitely stay here again when passing through this area.
