Nice park with lots of rules. Staff seems pleasant enough. The shower stalls are clean but the one curtain I touched felt slimy. Didn't investigate further. I liked the clean, well kept utility connections. They didn't have any Passport America sites (whatever that means) so they put us in a "Deluxe" site. I can't see any difference other than the extra $10 they charged us. There's no mention of PA vs Deluxe sites on either the park's website or the PA site. Personally, I think it's just a "Revenue Improvement Plan Offering Frivolous Features" (aka rip off) but we were tired an needed a place for a few days.

Date of Stay:

Great small park for an overnight or possibly a few days in Kingman. Not a resort but very convenient on/off from I-40, Exit 52. Pleasant office staff and clean grounds. There were a number of permanents but their rigs were well kept and didn't detract from the park. One negative is that the utilities are at the very back of the site so even a 20ft sewer hose was too short for our rig. Also, the trees don't provide a lot of shade.

Date of Stay:

Overall, park was a good value for what we wanted, a place to stay for two nights while we attended events in Tempe. Best feature was a high-pressure air hose. I checked and adjusted all tires before leaving. Thanks for that nice feature. Workkamper staff were friendly and helpful but front office staff is clueless about RVs and RV terminology. As we prepared to leave, my 20ft hose didn't reach the pipe so I asked for directions to the dump station. Discovered "dump" to the kid in the front office meant trash dumpster. Park doesn't have dump station. Circled park twice before backing into an empty space with a more convenient sewer pipe.

The manager is what keeps us returning when we need to be in Yuma. She's a no-nonsense but pleasant lady who is always accommodating. She had maintenance cut back a tree at the back of our space to prevent it scratching our rig. Yes, the grounds and facilities are old and a bit run-down but, overall, you can't beat it for convenience and price. The only thing that concerns me are the kids from the trailer park next door who wander through from time to time.

My evaluation is for an overnight stay enroute home. This place is a great value. We did laundry in their very clean machines and checked out their very nice bathroom/shower facilities but didn't use them. There are some decrepit permanent trailers in the front section but the area is well policed and hidden by shrubs. All the transient sites are pull through. The utility posts are clean, well maintained and embedded in small concrete pads. All the sites appear to be very level gravel and the sight out the front of the rig is beautiful. There's no WiFi but that's not a biggie for us. There weren't many others in the CG but it could get a bit tight when it's full. Access into and out of the CG is easy. It's only a 9 because it's not the best overnight CG we've stayed at but it's pretty close.

Date of Stay:

We stayed 5 days with a group. The only things this place has going for it are views and a decent restaurant. Otherwise, showers and bathrooms are gross, sites are tight & uneven, staff was invisible, power was sketchy (<110v), water bibs were caked in mineral deposits, making it nearly impossible to get a tight connection, advertised WiFi was MIA and gas was >$1.50 more than Stovepipe Wells. In the future, we'll dry camp at Stovepipe Wells and drive over Towne Pass to eat at the Panamint Springs Restaurant. I'd say here again if I had to be near some event on the west side of DV but not as a first choice.

Great park with outstanding staff. We stop here to dump and do laundry. The manager and the work camper are very helpful and friendly. For less than 3 nights, electricity is $3 extra per night. Otherwise, they read a meter on the site.

No services but it's great for those of us who like quiet and solitude. Lots of room between sites. Petroglyphs are interesting but limited to just one outcropping of rocks.

Date of Stay:

Nice NPS CG if you're seeking quiet and solitude. Generators are limited to 8AM to 10AM and 4PM to 6PM. There is also a No-Generator area. Hosts and rangers regularly patrol the grounds so security is very good. Solar heated showers are a bit anemic when there's cloud cover. No services except dump station, potable water, toilets and aforementioned solar heated showers. Most sites appeared to have a concrete pad which helps hold down dirt & dust in the RV.

Date of Stay:

Outstanding little free AZ Game & Fish Department refuge with small parking lot for ~6 small rigs or ~4 big rigs. No services except a vault toilet but thousands of sandhill cranes and other water fowl during the winter.

This is a nice county campground. Each shower and bathroom set is in its own room so there's none of the institutional, locker-room feel. The showers take quarters and have no controls. The water is a set temp. We got there about 4:40 PM and couldn't find a host, ranger, or security so we found a space and hooked up, expecting someone to come around. No one ever showed up by the time we pulled out the next morning. My wife is trying to contact them to see if they can accept a credit card for our stay but, at this time, we're probably on the FBI's Most Wanted List for campground scoundrels.

This is about as basic as you can get and still call it an RV park. It's a grass lot with utility pedestals along the periphery. The host was a nice guy and let me park perpendicular to several sites so I wouldn't have to unhook. There was just one other rig there. The grounds appeared reasonably level. There are no bathrooms, showers, Wi-Fi, or any other amenities. The train track along one side was a bit noisy but not enough to keep me awake after a long day of driving. They love to water the grass, sprinklers were going the whole time we there, about 12 hours.

Rate reflects PA for 1st night plus 3 nights at full $30/night rate. This CG could be a 9+ except for some minor nits plus 1 big issue. First, the positives. The sites are double width for large events where they cram them in. I would not want to be here then. During our stay, each rig had a double wide for itself. The utility pedestals are in good shape and set in concrete so everything is neat and tidy. The shade trees are neatly trimmed to avoid eating RV roofs and solar panels. The surface is large (~1/2 to 1 inch) gravel that doesn't track into the RV. The sites are canted, making it difficult to level without deploying blocks. They won't let you park facing the opposite direction. There's no grass anywhere. The bathrooms and showers are worn but clean except the moldy shower curtains. The laundry has good, clean washers and dryers. The primary host is a nice guy who seems to always be hustling around and getting things done. His underling is a major negative who needs a class on customer service. His first words to me, before I said a word, were, "That's the way it is. If you have to wait 10 minutes, so be it. I don't care."

This is a charming trailer park with a few sites set aside for transients. The best spot, across the street and directly on the water, was already occupied so we got the next best, at the end of the front row, facing the lake. The remaining sites are further back, nestled among full-time trailers and 5th wheels. The owner is a nice guy. Our 25' Class C and towed fit fine but anything larger would be a tight fit. The space was level and covered with patchy grass/dirt and a mature tree. A picnic table was on site. The utility fixtures were serviceable but covered with cobwebs, a personal "ick" factor for me. The bathrooms and showers were too dimly lit to fully assess their condition. We chose to use the facilities in our rig. The laundry room and machines were serviceable. The permanent residents were friendly, unique characters who keep their dogs on-leash, picked up after them and avoided loud, noisy activities. The local Sheriff's office seemed acquainted with some of the residents. Their regular visits to the park, at least, kept troublemakers away. Our Passport America rate was $22/night including tax.

Date of Stay:

Our $9 half-price rate was based on our Senior Pass (which I think is overly generous) but, at the same time, this was strictly dry camping so that's about all I'd be willing to pay anyway. This is a typical NPS CG with LOTS of people crammed in. The sites are reasonably level asphalt. The one thing I dislike about NPS is the Reserve America (RA) system. At this CG, RA essentially owns Loop A. Even if there's an empty space in Loop A, park employees can't edit the RA system to show I'm in it. Bottom line, an RA customer can boot me from a site at any time. Otherwise, the CG is acceptable for a few days while exploring the area. The restrooms and showers ($1.50/3 minutes) are clean and the dump ($5 regular/$2.50 Senior Pass) is well maintained. We had zero signal on either Verizon or T-Mobile devices.
