Date of Stay:

This park provides a great stay for overnight or longer stay travelers at a remarkably low price. Be sure to check in at the convenience store before entering the park; there's plenty of room to park while registering. Easy access to the park from I-8, long, level pull-thru sites, and full hookups with a laundry and desert dog-walking area. Some noise at night from the truck stop, but otherwise quiet and dark at night. WiFi at the store; unusable in the park. Good Verizon cell and data, and no obstructions to a satellite. Get here early and call ahead to check if there are spaces available, this park fills up quickly.

Rate reflects monthly stay plus electric. Our park of choice when visiting the area, Saguaro SKP Park, with minor exceptions, has everything for an enjoyable, reasonable stay. Travelers are able to rent the sites of absent leaseholders, so lots, which are all large, may vary from landscaping and pad to gravel only. Best suited for self-contained rigs since the only showers are at the office. The clubhouse offers weekly meals, a fully equipped exercise room, library, and large DVD library. Activities are extensive and visitors are welcome to participate. No WiFi except at the clubhouse, but a pay service is in the works. No pool, but it stays cool here in the winter. Verizon cell and data were strong, the cable is fuzzy, but there are no obstructions to a satellite. Convenient to town, Tucson, and Sierra Vista, with friendly residents and a welcoming atmosphere.

We enjoyed our stay here while visiting Organ Pipe National Monument; friendly check in, good Passport America discount, and large sites. We were placed in one of the upper rows where there is a great view of the mountains, in a fairly level gravel site. Cable TV worked well as did the WiFi, and there were no obstructions to the satellite but only 4 OTA channels. Verizon cell and 4G were good. Still quiet here in advance of the snowbirds, and dark and quiet at night. A good place to stay at an attractive price.

Date of Stay:

This large snowbird park was mostly empty during our visit, which considering the narrow sites made it acceptable for our four-slide motor home. Paved interior roads with gravel sites and a strange arrangement where the patio was at the rear of the site. Small trees, so no TV satellite obstruction and lots of OTA channels. Good Verizon cell and 4G, but park WiFi was too slow probably because of our location on the far side of the park. Convenient to I-10 and Loop 303, so a good stay for easy access, otherwise nothing special about this park.

Date of Stay:

Easy access to the interstate and 12 miles from Kingman, this park is a good overnight spot when transitioning the area. The level gravel sites are at the top of an uphill slope and it can be difficult unhooking a tow vehicle. Sites have partial shade and a table, and are well spaced. The park WiFi worked well in spite of the number of RVs present, and Verizon cell/4G were strong. Cable TV was adequate and there were no obstructions for a TV satellite. Friendly office staff. This is a popular place and was full by early afternoon, so reservations are a must.

Date of Stay:

Although on the NE side of town and away from the strip and downtown, it's nice to have the security of the base in the Las Vegas environment. During our many visits, hosts have been unfailingly friendly and helpful, and the escort to the site is appreciated. The unique layout results in most sites having more than the usual space, with trees and shrubs for privacy. Cement pad, patio, table, and separate parking are standard, and the WiFi worked well for us during our stay. Verizon cell and 4G were excellent, and there were many OTA stations along with a clear view of TV satellites. The jet noise during the day is expected, but be aware that the speedway north of the base can generate significant weekend noise during the evening. One of the best military campgrounds around, we recommend it over other parks in the area.

We enjoyed our stay at this well-maintained park. Easy access to the highway and with a friendly and accommodating owner, the 50-amp sites are large, level gravel with a small tree and great views of the surrounding mountains. Good park WiFi and strong Verizon cell and data, with unobstructed views of TV satellites. Some long-term residents, but their sites were well maintained. A beautiful area with lots to see, we'll return again.

Date of Stay:

Convenient to the highway, with fairly level gravel pull-throughs near the front of the park. Friendly folks at check-in. A bit tricky navigating the pull-through between the trees for big rigs, but doable. Trees blocked the satellite, but there were plenty of OTA channels available and a an extensive cable selection. Verizon cell and data were strong, and the park WiFi worked well. Plenty of truck noise throughout the night, otherwise a quality stay.

Date of Stay:

This is a nice park a bit out off the beaten track but convenient to Lava Beds NM and wildlife refuges. Very friendly owner, quiet and secluded, and easy maneuvering for big rigs. Sites are roomy, finely packed gravel, and without grass. While shaded, there's room for a clear shot to TV satellites although and are a surprising number of OTA channels. Verizon cell and data were very good. We experienced occasional fluctuating voltage which caused our surge protector to shut down our power. Overall a comfortable stay in an area with few options.

Date of Stay:

We had plans to spend two nights here, and were told by phone that there were many open sites (Their Passport America Ad advertises 70 sites). On arrival, we found that there were only 24 sites with hookups, and only a few with 50A power, and most were taken by waterfowl hunters. Sites are grass, which was long, and not very level. The first site we tried was a 50A site but our surge protector displayed a "reverse polarity" error and wouldn't connect. We tried two others, both 30A with the same error reading. As a result, we left without staying.

There simply aren't any more positive adjectives left to describe this park, so I won't try. Instead, I'll focus on the value. There simply isn't another park that features the atmosphere, amenities, and focus on customer satisfaction for the price of less than $40/night. The shuttle bus will take you to the casino, but also into town for shopping with no charge. Don't pass this amazing place, it's hands down the best along I-5.

Date of Stay:

Rate is discounted rate for frequent players and included full hookups. This has become our favorite stop when traveling through the area. The staff and check-in is more like a hotel than an RV Park, and you pay at checkout. Discounts are offered for dining at the casino. All paved interior roads and sites, both back-in and pull-through, and most have a view of Coos Bay. Hookups are convenient and the cable TV worked well. Wi-Fi worked sporadically depending on time of day, and Verizon cell/4G was strong. No obstructions to rooftop satellites. A very well maintained and professionally operated park; we'll return again.

Date of Stay:

A small park with easy access to highway 101 and convenient to Bandon. Interior roads and sites are gravel with extra long pull-thrus, grass, fire ring, and picnic table. Very friendly and helpful host checked to see if our stay was comfortable. Fenced and very quiet at night. Verizon cell/4g were strong, and there were no obstructions to rooftop satellite. A convenient, quiet, and reasonably priced stay for an overnight or longer; we'll visit again.

Date of Stay:

Beautifully maintained park convenient to I-5, fuel stops, and restaurants, yet fairly quiet at night. Paved interior roads and sites, with long pull-thrus, grass, and table. Row one sites are sloped downward, and our site's sewer location required and extension. Good hookups, WiFi, and cable TV, and Verizon service was strong. No obstructions to rooftop satellite dish. Very friendly and helpful check in. Not much in the area, but a great place to overnight while traveling.

Date of Stay:

Well-maintained, large RV park convenient to Silverton, Oregon Gardens, and Silver Falls. Interior roads and sites are gravel, with long pull-throughs that are level. Grass and small trees, with picnic table at each site. Good cable TV and Wi-Fi, and Verizon service was strong. No obstructions to the TV satellites. Very friendly and professional staff. Some road noise but fairly quiet at night. We'll return.
