Park was dirty, dusty with undrinkable water hook ups. Management won't spend any money to upgrade this park. They cater to the summer people, not the snowbirds. Nothing here to keep people returning except for an overnight stay. Internet is off and on. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This is an older, not very attractive, RV park which consists of dead grass, dirt, and gravel roads. The smell of sewage permeates many areas of the park. Some of the riverside sites are really nice, but most of them and many of the interior sites are rented by people who leave their RV there all year and mostly come to the park on the weekends and in the summer. Many of these RVs are old, in poor repair, and have unsightly storage underneath. The gravel roads create a lot of dust, especially when the full-year renters drive their golf carts, ATVs, and jeeps in and out many times a day. There seems to be an effort to keep the park clean, but the infrastructure does not appear to have been updated in a long time. The park managers are sometimes abrupt and often rude when a problem is brought to their attention. There appears to be a different set of rules for the full-year residents than for others, particularly pertaining to leashing and picking up after pets and quiet hours. On the positive side, we met many friendly people who were spending the winter in the park. The monthly rate does not include electricity, which ran us about $70. WiFi is included in the monthly rate, although it is not always reliable. We would probably not return to this park other than for an occasional overnighter to visit friends. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This park at first glance was disappointing in comparison to the website, but we had a great time and the place grew on you. I would come back. The sites were dead grass and dirt, not real level, and we needed an extension on our hose to get to the water hook up. However, on the positive side, the sites are large (both in length and width) and everything worked including the WIFI which is free. I feel the daily and weekly prices are high considering you don’t get a swimming pool or other fancy amenities like some parks at the same price; however, you are right on the Colorado River which probably would be nice in the warmer weather for water sports. What I did like about the park was the friendly people and the “no rule” atmosphere – everything was casual. The park is very quiet and gated for security. There is no road or train noise, just the sound of birds and nature. The restaurants in town are fun. They had plenty of washers and dryers and even clothes lines to hang your clothes out. There was a problem with a sewer smell in several areas. It seemed like management took care of it before we left. The restrooms were clean. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
We stayed in the one rental they have at this park for 2 nights. The location was good, right next to the river and the park itself was very quiet. There was also a lovely gift basket that was waiting for us.Unfortunately, there were three issues pertaining to the rental that gave this park very low marks. First, the rental had cockroaches, very large cockroaches. I understand that any unit being near water might attract them, but I don't want to live, sleep or eat in a rental that has them. Secondly, the box springs on the bed are broken. Even the slightest movement such as turning on your side was met with rather loud creaking noises. The mattress itself was fine, but the box springs were excessively loud. The third and final issue had to due with the smell of sewage inside and around the location of this rental. I don't know where the smell was coming from, but it was strong and really unpleasant. We were told that management has been aware of it for some time, but has not done anything to alleviate the problem. As I stated previously, the rental is in a really nice location, but the three issues are significant enough to ensure we won't be renting the unit again. Also, for some reason this page isn't putting in the nightly rate correctly. It was $100.00 per night (off season). We camped here in a Campground Cabin.

Excellent park on the CA side of the Colorado River just 5 miles from Parker, AZ and plentiful shopping. Friendly staff. Grassy sites. Very quiet park with no road noise. Some water craft but in the summer mostly, pretty quiet now that the water level is down. Like it enough that I paid $270 for a months stay (electricity is extra, about $0.12 per KWH). Owner would allow me to leave for a trip away and return to continue my stay without further charge (at least this time of year, returning in Feb). Grounds are well kept. Facilities are clean and pleasant. Hardly any noxious bugs and there is interesting wildlife wandering through the park occasionally. Very nice park, enjoying my stay very much. Excellent weather this time of year. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Have parked in this park for 10 years. Has had management problems the last few years. Sewer smell has gotten worse last few years. Fees have increased from 5.00 to 10.00 a day per guest. Overnight parking went from 25.00 to 50.00. Needs some upkeep. Dry and dusty. Will not be returning. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This was a very friendly and hospitable RV park, and we had a wonderful time while there. It is right on the Colorado River with docks and hiking available. The facilities were clean, the area well taken care of, and we were invited to the planned dinner, dance, and breakfast despite the fact we just drove in. We had a wonderful time. Our dog enjoyed the trails along the river. We were a little sad to leave. Recommended highly! We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Still hot when we got here, but river was nice! Wish the clubhouse was open, but they don't open it until the winter people come in. Some summer folks still here, were real nice and gave us ideas on where to go and things to see. We had planned to stay longer but family emergency, had to leave early. Will come back if possible, but closer to winter. Will recommend. Nice staff and hosts. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Rate shown for a one week stay divided by 7. Narrow access road would make it difficult for two big rigs to pass each other. Park roads and campsite gravel. My site was fairly level. Utilities worked fine. Long term residents can get a phone connection at site. Good cable TV. Wi-Fi hotspots at clubhouse and office. They are not strong enough to receive from most sites. Friendly staff and long term residents. Enjoyed Thanksgiving dinner with many of the residents. Mature trees and location on the river a nice touch. I would stay here again if in the area. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Very friendly staff, they started just a week ago and are willing to upgrade the park. They gave us a lot of information about where to go and things to do. We have got a site opposite to the office and WiFi was perfect. We stayed here two nights in our 33 footer with a PA rate. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Rate we paid was for Passport America: good for two nights only. Sites just barely accommodated our 40'rig. VERY narrow as this an older park. Sites are gravel with small cement "patio." Park is on Colorado River, has Wi-Fi at office and club house. Club house was not open but it's on the river which is wide/deep enough for lots of boating. Parker, AZ is the only real city close to Big River, CA and it's about 7 miles away across the river. We did an excursion over to Joshua Tree Nat. Park (130 miles away) and was a generally dull outing except to say we saw 29 Palms, CA. Their signs suggest they have a problem with rattlesnakes and scorpions. The managers were exceptionally friendly and the campground was clean but there isn't enough going on in this facility to bring us back. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
