This is a very quiet park in January. With all the permanent recreational residents with boats and jet skies, it's probably a totally different story in July. We camped in one of the pull through sites in the back. We really enjoyed our stay. Had some great walks along the Colorado River. The facilities were nice, everything worked great. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Nothing special but certainly OK for a stopover. 6 miles off the interstate. If you have a boat or watercraft they have a launch ramp right into their private lagoon and then on to the Colorado river. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
One of the worst places I have every stayed. We were put out in the field where they had just burned off some trees and stuff. The sewer line didn't work and was over flowing. Not very friendly staff and some of the residents were down right rude. Tried to move close to the river into empty spots, but they wouldn't allow us to move. I would never stay here again. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
This park has approximately 200 permanent sites with 8 RV sites upfront near the Colorado
River. There are another 12 pull through sites in the back of the park with 50 amp hookups. Tenters are allowed on the grass in front of the 8 RV sites and make it miserable with loud stereo's and drunken behavior. Low voltage is a major problem and Destiny refuses to fix the problem. I do not recommend this park. We camped here in a Motorhome.

We stayed at McIntyre Park. OK midweek, but by Thursday the jetskiers and wakeboarders start arriving and the place gets NOISY! On their site, they claim it is a quiet park. HA! Nice lagoon and ramp, but the lagoon is a madhouse on weekends.. Low voltage on weekends. Bathrooms not clean on weekends. We are still trying to get our electricity deposit back. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We stayed overnight while traveling west so it was fine for one night only but I would not stay longer. No sewer access and no TV reception even with an antenna was a negative. It is a very quiet campground (in January) being on the river, and five miles from the highway. We had a spot on grass backing up to the river, but very close to other RVs. So close you could hear the people in the next motorhome. Not much room to park your car either. Most of the RVs there were permanent summer residents that were not being used, just parked. The Passport America discount does not apply on weekends, so arriving on Friday was full price, and not worth it. I imagine the summer months would be really busy and noisy with permanent residents. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
We arrived in the early afternoon. Half of our camp site was muddy. The caretaker had just watered the grass three hours earlier. The pull through sites are very wide. We were able to move away from the mud. The listing claims there is sewer hook ups, not true. There are dump stations. They are not very clean or easy to use. The camp is very quiet and remote. I'm not sure the site is worth the $33 they charge. I most likely will not stay here again. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Quiet campground, some sites are available for those of us who are passing through, but most sites are permanent residents. Store and outdoor restaurant serving bar food and beer. Friendly staff. This is a fish camp, but in October the river was just about completely dried up. We would stay again, but just overnight using Passport America. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Very nice well-cared for park with many permanent residents. Being on the river is oriented to boaters and it has its own boat ramp. It is shady with lots of trees. We parked in a pull-through on well-kept lawn. The sites along the river have great views, but look cramped. We had a nice time sitting along the river eating ice cream sandwiches purchased from the general store. We'd stay here again. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
We stopped here passing though. The sites were level. The restrooms were fairly clean, but older and could of used some added maintenance. There were several park homes with permanent residents. The roads were narrow, but no overhanging branches/wires. It was an easy on/off I-10. We might (??) stay here again, but only for a day, not extended. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
The site we had by the river had a nice view. It goes downhill from there. The 2 women I talked to in the office were friendly as was the guy early in the morning turning on sprinklers. This park is basically a trailer park with a few RV sites. The long term residents do as they want and don't adhere to the rules. My wife picked up bread (?) pieces from our site when we arrived and the next morning we were greeted with some sort of chips thrown out. We also had dog crap in our site the morning we left. The PA price started at $21, ended up $28 ($32.95 if we added the Wi-Fi) with no sewer hookup. They did give us one day free because we are seniors (had to ask about it after trying to sign on after hours). The "Beer Garden" is very unfriendly as are the full timers here. I am sure we will stay at the county park next time, same amenities and free Wi-Fi. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
A bit pricey when compared to the county park down the road, but there is a small store. No cable, but plenty of stations over-the-air. Can see the Colorado river from many sites. We camped here in a Motorhome.
The park setting was nice as we were on the river, but that is were it stopped. There is a leash law for your pets, but that appeared to be only for those that camped short term. Those that rented sites by the month or the season didn't seem to have to follow the rules. There were dogs leaving deposits around our motor home as staff walked by and made no comment to the dog's owners. We were to have our motor home sewer drained on Friday attended at the office and was told that the person doing that would be by soon, that was at 8:00 am, there were four to be done that day. He showed up at 11:45 am so that day was wasted for us. Over all we got the impression that the sewer guy was doing us a favor. The office staff were helpful, but they couldn't seem to motivate the outside staff. The laundry has 2 washers and dryers that don't work properly. $2.00 to do a drying is just a little too much. The men's bathroom was closed for two days. Over all if you gave me free camping here I would go some where else and pay. We camped here in a Motorhome.

I booked this park from reviewing there web site which I will never do again. There is not much good I can say about this park other then they did refund my payment. We camped here in a Motorhome.
First, if you use the pull throughs there are no sewer hook ups! The restrooms were nasty. There was a party going on well into the night and to say it was loud would be an understatement. The next day there were beer cans in the road and around the campground. It resembled a fraternity party from Animal House. There are ant mounds everywhere. If you can overlook these things it is an OK overnight stop. The roads to the park are very good but once in the park it is very narrow for a big rig. Once you register you have to circle the store and you had better be good to squeeze around to get back to your pull through site. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Very nice older park which is basically a full time trailer park with some RV sites. Most of the trailers are second homes and occupied just part time. Facilities are old but well maintained. No sewer hook up but staff will empty your rig with honey bucket trailer twice a week. Sites are on grass and are level and spacious. Staff very friendly and helpful. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
This is one of those examples of a campground calling themselves a resort. They’re a lot of permanent residents here. They must call this Hidden Beaches because there are no beaches. There is a dirt mound between the boat ramp and dock they call a beach. The boat ramp is protected from the river currents, which is handy for loading and unloading your boat. They do have a nice store, which is also used by a lot of locals and day workers. This is a Passport America park however instead of cutting the price in half, they give you the basics for the price. They will charge you extra for electricity, WiFi, and sewer which will bring it back up to near full price. We would have stayed at the Passport America park around the corner but wanted a river front site. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Sunday, April 14 â€“ Mayflower Country Park, Blythe, CA: This is right over the state line from AZ interstate 10 heading west. It cost us $12 with Passport America, but they donâ€™t honor it during the winter months when this park is full. We had a half shade site with water and electric. This park sits on the Colorado River, but it is too dangerous to swim in it and warnings are posted. Check in was efficient and the guy was really nice and informative. There are no reservations; itâ€™s a first come first serve park. Picnic areas are in the park and the bath house serves both those camping and those using the park for the day. The bath house needs to be updated. It is old, used, but it was clean. There is RV storage in the park, lawn bowling, and three loops for camping. We were allowed to pick our own site. On a Sunday night in April less than a third of the sites were taken. Fine for an overnight! We camped here in a Motorhome.
The rate of 12.50/day reflects the Passport America discount. Sites are spacious but parking is on grass. Driveways are just sand and grass. Some driveways are difficult to get through because of loose sand. The water supply is really gross, as in nothing I could bear to taste. The park is too far from cell towers for reliable service, at least on my Sprint cell. Verizon air card service was weak. The good: the park is in a scenic location on the Colorado River and is a peaceful setting for a relaxing stay. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
The rate reflects the monthly fee of $275 which includes electricity, water, thrice weekly honey wagon service, free Wi-Fi (much improved), and limited antenna TV. This is definitely not resort-style living, but a charming park for snow birders seeking value, pet-friendly surroundings, friendly neighbors, helpful staff, loose rules, some group activities (lawn bowling, potlucks, ice cream socials)and spectacular sunsets. It gets rather crowded and cramped in January with folks staying here rather than nearby Quartzsite, Arizona, but thins out nicely as activities wind down there. We stayed here 6 weeks last winter and 3 months this winter. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Super quiet, good-sized spots, very popular winter destination for snowbirds. Beautiful sunsets. Lovely views. Some permanent RVs in one part of the campground. Large campground. Very pet friendly. Many places to walk dogs off leash right outside of the campground. This place literally shuts down around 7 p.m. - it's very quiet all night. We've camped here before and will return. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
I've got to give them credit for "trying". Latest bond issue improved the entry area, maintenance & administration buildings. Gate keeper on the way out (we came in too late to see them the night before) informed us that another bond issue was scheduled to upgrade the rest room/showers which appeared VERY basic from the outside. Great access to the Colorado River but actual sites are simply quasi laid out over sand/dirt/grass. Would probably give it another shot to see how that other bond issue affected the overall layout. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Our overnight stay was $22 plus $1 for each dog. It has a nice looking brick pavers at the entry road with nice looking masonry buildings for the administration functions. The actual camping area is more rustic though. It consists of gravel roads with a fair amount of grass areas throughout the campground. We pulled in here for an overnight stay and rather liked the place. It has quite a few tall trees scattered throughout. There is a boat launch ramp down into the Colorado River. At this point the river almost looks like a wide canal with swiftly flowing current. There is water and 30 amp electric but no drains at the sites. The high mineral content of the water makes it less than desirable for drinking. Bottled drinking water is suggested. The sites are not well defined as to where you should park. The hookups are located at the front of the site as you pull in. While we were there a tank truck came around to pump out RV holding tanks. This is I believe a service several times a week for the monthly snowbirds during the winter season. We dumped on the way out, but there was overflow water sitting in the concrete basin surrounding the 4 inch drop inlet at the dump station. This campground is in a quiet location. We would camp here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Rates: $18 dry camping, $22 with electric, $110 for 7 nights. There are lots of shade trees and mild winters which makes this a great snowbird location. It's quiet and pretty, surrounded by mountains. Dogs are supposed to be leashed, but there are nearby dirt fields where you can take your dogs off-leash. This is not your typical cement or gravel park, nor are there excessive rules about leaving your stuff outside. (I noticed a lot of comments about snowbirders who live here for months.) There are also lots of activities here, such as potlucks, book-sharing, etc. We'd certainly come back. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
The river is pretty and the lady checking us in was nice. That's about all the good I can say. Roads are awful with big ruts. I was told to pull into any available site. It was difficult to tell where one spot was and the next ended. People were every which way - diagonal, straight in, backed in. The bathroom/shower was dirty. There was no soap or towels/dryers by the sink. The Wi-Fi worked well. It's free for the first day. There was no cable. Most of the time I got one station. I won't stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This Park is owned and operated by Riverside County. We feel it is the best in their system. We had the most enjoyable stay last winter. The atmosphere is friendly with many snowbirds from Canada and well as the northern United States. The park is located on the Colorado River and is only 25 miles from Quartsite, AZ. It is generally quiet and clean! Although it does not have sewer hookups they operate a "honey wagon" that pumps out your holding takes 3 times a week for long term stays. They offer an excellent monthly rate during the winter! This park has been the best place we have ever experienced! We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
We have been here many times over the past several years. The people are always nice, and the snowbirds are very friendly. We found that many of them have been spending the winters here for over 20 years. There is Yard Bowling every week that many people participate in. The spaces are large. Large enough to park sideways in your spot if you want, and people do. The water is OK for showers and toilet, but I would not drink it. Filtered water delivery is available, and many snowbirds do this. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This was our second time to use this park. Many snowbirds stay here for months at a time. In the area with the water and electric hookups the sites are extremely close together, arranged rather haphazardly and have no privacy, but folks seem to enjoy all the socializing with their neighbors. If you like a real neat and tidy campground, this isn't it. People have stuff all over the place, but everyone seems quite good natured about it all. For just a short stay we like the dry sites even though they can be a little tricky to maneuver into. This time we got a site with a view of the river and some nice big old shade trees. As with the last time we stayed here, the campground host allowed us to hook up to the water faucet near our site. People have commented on the water. In general, when traveling in the Southwest we use tap water only for showering, doing the dishes, etc. We stick to bottled water for drinking. We like this campground as a base for seeing Quartzsite. It's a lot prettier than anything you'll find in Quartzsite and a lot more quiet too. We'd stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
A OK stop between Indio and Phoenix. Friendly staff. Sites are not marked. Park on grass/sand. No reservations. But the park was only about 1/3 full. I took two spaces and parked in C11/C12 facing south to get good satellite TV. Very hard water so I did not hook up water but used water from my fresh water tank. The park is 'run down' with very little maintenance taking place. Speed bumps - ugh. But for $22 a day well! We camped here in a Motorhome.
Nice, quiet place to crash en route between PHX and Calif grandkids. Accepts PA (half-price) Oct-Apr, sure cannot figure out why not the whole year. It seems to be a boater's paradise, folks come with watercraft to launch on the Colorado River. We stayed here in both directions during Apr/May travels to visit the kids. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Very friendly and attentive. There are no sewer hookups, but the honey wagon arrives 3 times a week. This is not a resort and makes no such claim. The restrooms and showers were clean. The snow birders have created many activities that anyone can participate. Monthly rate of 250.00 including electricity makes this a incredible deal. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Very nice county park on Colorado River, just north of town. Park is all grass with sites clustered around utility poles servicing 4 RV's. Layout seems haphazard. Very friendly staff and residents. Hookups are electric and water only, but pumpouts are free 3 times a week. Very well kept grounds with good walking areas. Very good value for long term stays, only $250 a month, electric included. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This park was a dissapointment based on the 10 it received from a previous visitor. We found the grass sites very bumpy to get to in our motorhome. The electric hookup was 50 amp, but we had a "caution light" constantly on our SurgeGuard. There were obvious "long termers" here for a long time: plants planted around, etc. It was very good for what it was, but don't expect a "10" resort or even an "8" RV Park. Nice trees, shade, and river access for boaters. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is a really nice County Park that is also a Pass Port America park. We paid only $9 for a 50 amp site with water. Beautiful green mowed grass, picnic tables. Shade trees. Huge park with hardly anyone in it. Right on the Colorado River. We will come back if ever in the area again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We spent 3-5 months during the last 3 winters here. Quiet and peaceful during the snowbird season. No highway noise. Bathrooms are old but clean. Honeywagon makes the rounds 3 times per week and is included for a week or longer stay. The birdwatching is good and there are mature shady trees,and beautiful sunrises and sunsets. Staff, volunteers and visitors are friendly and helpful. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
An oasis on the Colorado River, and very popular with folks staying awhile. Parking for the most part on the grass, with tall (Cottonwood?) trees all around for shade. Bathrooms not so great. Very reasonable weekly/monthly rates, friendly staff & campers - lots of folks there for the winter. A few miles to Blythe; nice desert town. Not too far to Quartzite, AZ (but a LOT more civilized) and the Arizona border is just a few miles away if you want to save $$$ fueling up. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This was a welcome discovery for us. We did not want to stay in Quartzite amid all the hoopla and dust and were pleased to find this county park along the Colorado River just a few miles west of the AZ-CA border. The water/electric sites are all crowded together in one area of the park and it was pretty full with snowbirds. We opted for a site in the no hook-ups area and had it pretty much to ourselves. Some of these "dry" sites have access to a water tap and the camp host had no problem with our taking a site where we could connect to one (although she did warn us that most people drink bottled water. We had a nice view of the river and beautiful old shade trees all around us. One caveat - this part of the campground is a little tight to maneuver in, but the sites themselves are spacious. It's the trees that you have to watch out for. They crowd the access road and some have low hanging branches. I'm glad they are leaving them though for in the summer they must provide very welcome shade. We saw lots of birds here and it was quiet and peaceful. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This park was a pleasant surprise. Hidden just past some of the less desireable campgrounds Northeast of Blythe. The sites are all on grass, 50 amp electric and water, and very quiet at night. All the hosts were very friendly and the park was spotlessly clean when we were there. We liked the convenience so well we used it again on our way back through a week later. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is a great place to stay if you like to golf. It is situated on the Blythe Municipal Golf Course. However, if you do not like to golf, there isn't much else to do in the area. The resort itself is very nice and well maintained. The lots are individually owned and you rent from the owner. The "nightly rate" indicated is based on a monthly rate. Most of the owners/renters are from Canada and so are we. Everyone is very friendly. If you love to shop, this is not the place for you. Not many shops in Blythe but if you are looking for a quiet, clean RV Resort, this is your place. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
This former KOA became Riviera RV Resort and Marina at the first of the year. The park is located on the Colorado River. Staff was super friendly and escorted us to our site. Our pull through was long, level, and grassy. The narrowness of the sites makes the side by side hook ups a bit too cozy with your neighbor. Restrooms were clean and the shower stalls roomy. The store had a good selection of snacks, supplies, and tee shirts. There is a decent sized, grassy enclosed dog run. Quite a few long term residents at the park. If you are traveling west, take the exit immediately past the agriculture inspection station and follow the signs to the park. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Great for a quick one night stopover on our way to Arizona. People are friendly and helpful. Site was all grassy, but long and wide enough we did not even need to unhook. Works out perfect and will no doubt stop here again on our next trip to Tucson. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This is an old KOA park that is no longer part of the KOA franchise. It is the Riviera RV Park (I believe) and is located on the west bank of the Colorado River. Nice size sites with grass and trees, utilities work, friendly staff, great (a 10) fenced dog area. Backs up to the interstate so some road noise though not bad. Quite a few long term residents. All in all, a nice, friendly park. Made a nice overnight stop. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Beautiful KOA. Great swimming pool. Hot tub is more a "warm tub". Very friendly reception. Level and large sites. Well maintained and watered grass fields. The one part of the camp looks more a parking lot to me. Ask for grassy sites. One does not hear the traffic . We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is a typical KOA, but is well run and maintained. As is with most KOA's, it's a little close to the freeway so there is some road noise but it's not overwhelming. There are some sites on the river, and the staff will let you head in if you choose to have a view of the river as opposed to a view of the campground. However, if you do this your hookups will be on the wrong side. The dog area is on a small spit of land where you can have your dog off leash on the whole little island if you wish. Some sites have small patio's, but most do not. We used our own air card for WiFi, and the signal was strong. There is also a boat ramp for easy access to the river. I would stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is a nice park, easy to drive a 40 foot motor home with towed vehicle in nice pull-throughs, nice location next to the River. Close to I-10 for easy access to get back on the road. This park had a nice feel to it and it was nice that it is well maintained and very roomy as well. Wi-Fi worked well, staff was helpful. Absolutely would stay here again without any shadow of a doubt. Very, very pleasant RV park. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Nice Park. Large asphalt roads. Sites are sand and grass. Needed one 1/4 board to level trailer side to side. Site was long enough to easily leave truck hooked up to trailer and there was good space between rigs on both sides. Were led to site by staff member. All staff members we met were very friendly and tried to be helpful. Best KOA camp K-9 we have seen. Wi-Fi worked well. Second time staying here. We would return again. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Very nice KOA. The office was friendly, check in quick and easy. Rate reflects a 30 day stay. Pet friendly. A number of long term units, but people were very friendly. Grass was brown, but I hear that it just happens this time of year. Road noise from I-10, but nothing too bsd. We enjoyed our stay and would stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We stayed here four nights and really enjoyed our time here. The manager and staff were very friendly and helpful. The sites are nice, very wide and are grass. I applaud the campground for taking two sites and combining them into one site to allow for the modern day RV with so many slides, especially after coming from a campground where we were on top of each other. The grounds are nice and there's lots of room to walk around for exercise and ride bikes. We would definitely stay here again. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
I stayed here for 1 day. Campground elevation is 264 feet. Maneuvering my 40 footer towing a dinghy in the park was no problem. Roads are asphalt, sites and patio are grass/sand. Pull through sites hold a 40 foot motorhome towing. My site H03 was a pull through site offered 30/50 amp service & full hookups. Wi-Fi (2 hours) and cable are available at no additional charge. I was able to receive AT&T Wireless 3G Internet and AT&T Cellular service. I received Dish Network 110/119 Satellite TV from dish on roof of motorhome. Campground is pet friendly. Kmart is 5 miles away and Albertsons is 4 miles away. I am unable to comment on other amenities due to not using them. This is a decent KOA with a lot of monthlies. It is well maintained and clean. Not many people passing through this time of the year. It sits right on the Colorado River which divides Arizona and California. Major negative is the proximity to I-10 and the California Check Point where traffic backs up. The noise is abundant and continuous. I also think that $40 per night is a little steep, all things considered. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Very pleasant park right by the river. There is a large, fenced-in dog run and no breed restrictions as long as your pet is well-behaved and under control. This is a refreshing attitude as we find the most unruly dogs to be the smaller ones with no owner discipline. Easy late-night check-in process. Sites are large and mostly pull throughs. Staff is friendly and relaxed. Wi-Fi is limited to 2 hours per day - but this should be enough to check email and touch base. We used this park twice - once going and once returning from a trip to the Southwest. Next time we will spend a week here because it was very inviting. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This was a waypoint for us traveling into California from Arizona. It's tricky getting to the park coming from the East. The CA Inspection Station is right at the recommended off ramp and trucks pulling out make the turn almost impossible. So go to the next ramp and make a U-turn back onto I-10 East and drive back to the off ramp going eastbound. That puts you right at the park. By now you may have guessed this is a very noisy park if your in a section near the freeway: which is where they put the overnight pull-throughs. The management is very friendly and helpful. The park is older but in decent condition. The park sits right along the Colorado River which is very pretty and on the CA/AZ border. It's a little tight getting into the park but after that, the turns are sufficiently wide and the pull-through sites are long enough for Big Rigs that are towing. We're 45' with 4 slides and had no problem at all. The sites are on grass and sand. The roads are asphalt. Bathrooms are not good: old, dirty and smelly. The water in the shower smelled of sulphur or something dreadful. Had to re-shower later in the coach to get rid of the smell. The park is dog-friendly and has a nice sized, enclosed dog walk. There is a combination of grass, dirt, sand and asphalt to walk on. Lots of folks seem to enjoy living here full-time. Guess they get used to the noise. Will use this park only as an overnight drop when needed. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Nice long pull-throughs and lots of grass. But, it is very pricey to stay here. Most KOA's are getting way too expensive. Proximity to I-10 made for a lot of traffic noise 24/7, especially trucks. Showers were warm at best and had a smell to the water. Internet was painfully slow. Staff was great and they have a nice pool. Pretty good fenced dog park. Near to river and various stores and places to eat. Price is the main thing that will keep us from staying here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Great place to stay. We pulled in here tired without reservations and everything was good. Friendly reception. Guided to spot. Big big grassy spots. Both of our satellite dishes had clear shots. 50 amps. The park is on the Colorado river. It is also close to the freeway too. Our one negative: it's not cheap. But a great spot to stay a night or many nights. Spot we were put on was all grass. A big plus. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Enjoyable, friendly, and welcoming staff. Nice level grass pads with full hook-ups. The first time through we stayed on the side closest to I-10. Big mistake! The vehicle traffic, specifically the big rigs, make a lot of noise and will make it very hard to sleep. Stayed on the other side when we came back through - quite a few full time residents on this side, but pleasant enough. Great access to the Colorado River if you are a water sports fanatic. 2-hours of free Wi-Fi access then you have to pay. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Nice park for a few nights. For the previous poster, if you want quiet don't stay next to a Interstate Hwy. DUH Propane just 5 minutes away. Very friendly staff. Park grounds kept up. Some some full timers but very nice to visit with. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
The facilities were OK, and the river was very nice. I had two problems with this park. First, the wi-fi was horrible. It barely worked, and when it did you couldn't even upload two photos because of bandwidth restrictions. My main problem was with the location of the park. It's right next to I-10, and all you hear are trucks and their jake brakes all night long. There's a CA checkpoint in the westbound lane, so trucks are always stopping and starting. If you are deaf and don't need wi-fi, this would be a great RV park. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Industrial area, not much natural beauty despite riverfront setting. Wi-Fi was iffy, not reliable. Staff was friendly. Propane was not available when we were here, had to go chasing after it later in the day, which wasted time. Many winter/long-term residents, who seemed to have the best spaces. Good for over nighter. Lots of room for exercising the dog. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Such a nice place to stay. Our site was close to the river. We stayed for 3 nights and had a blast. They had a boat landing and we were very impressed by the campgrounds. They even have limited cable TV. This was our first KOA and we bought a value card and will stay as many as possible. We camped here in a Truck Camper.
We were going to dry camp in Quartzsite (enroute to Sedona) but due to the heat, we called this KOA while on the road to see about availability. The staff was very helpful. When we arrived, they assigned us to probably the best river view spot in the park. There was a grassy area and a little patio type setting at our site. Full hook-ups. This was great for a one night stop. The location was very convenient to the highway. I have nothing to complain about, but I wouldn't want to stay here for more than a night or two because there isn't much to do around Blythe. There was a gas line going across the river and the view on the other side wasn't great. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Our site had 30/50 amps (good power), water, sewer, cable TV with around 90 channels, deep and wide sites, plus level. Most sites are side by side hookups. Our site had a nice view of park models but we could see river in one place. You can see river well from around 11 back in sites. Roads are good asphalt and sites are a mixed bag of gravel, some gravel, grass, or dirt. The Wi-Fi worked very well and speed was good but you have a one hour limit per day. If you need more time, it cost $3. per hour or $6. per day. You have a number of antennas for the Wi-Fi system. Park had a nice swimming pool with hot tub. Some playground equipment for the kids. Staff was nice at check in. Lots of road noise from I-10 that never stops. Verizon cell and air card work well here. Park was very clean, neat, full of trees and plants but not a lot of shade to park under. Staff works hard to water the yards and keep it looking nice. The park is locked up at night and you have a tire ripping guard on the exit gate. Park was close to empty at our stay. You have a Flying-J across the river for your fuel needs and Albertsons super market in town. We also found a number of places to eat in town plus a great Ace Hardware if you need to repair or fix anything. Like all KOA's the high price is the only problem here. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Very clean park with very nice staff. The sites are right on the Colorado River. Good entertainment for kids; a pool, game room, and playground. Would certainly stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This place gets an 8 for location. It's on the river. It is a bit close to the highway, but I didn't have any trouble sleeping. The people running it were very nice. The site we had was large and roomy on grass. They have a large boat launch, and it's really nice to sit by the river. Food options in Blythe are limited, but the campground was nice, especially with the full moon that we had. I'd stay here again for sure. It is pricey, but not too bad. We camped here in a Motorhome.
First KOA I had been to in many years. Very friendly staff. We were led to site and positioned for easy hook up. Water faucet leaked. Contacted office and they immediately came and fixed faucet. Roads are wide and easy to drive. New picnic tables throughout the park. A decent amount of room between the RV's. Very pet friendly. Camp K-9 was great on Dog Island. This is a large fenced in area my dog could run to her heart's content. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
This was an overnight stop as we were traveling from Williams, Arizona to San Diego. The pull through site was easy to access. The campground is right next to the Yuma river but the water level was very low. The people in the KOA store were very friendly and helpful. You are right across the river from Arizona and if you need diesel fuel it is 30 cents a gallon cheaper than in California. The campground is very close to the Interstate and truck traffic noise is fairly loud. This was a good overnight stop with easy off and on access from the Interstate. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
We camped here one night and overall had a pleasant stay. We would have no problem staying here again, although we wouldn't go out of our way to do so. The staff was friendly and helpful. The park has a nice, gated dog play area and as the name suggests, the beautiful Colorado River within walking distance. We gave a rating of 8 because we had large overhead lights right over our site (difficult to sleep), the cable produced a fuzzy picture, and the free Wi-Fi was limited to one hour before the need to pay. Not huge issues, but could be better. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This is a great place especially on the weekends when this KOA RV park turns into more of a resort. The only down side for us was the lack of Wi-Fi that was not working. We needed our computer, otherwise, we'd have stayed longer than one night. Check with management if you need Wi-Fi. The "Missouri" managers are friendly and helpful, and this park is on the Colorado River. Facilities are clean and it has a large center with many added features like game room. We paid a premium for a site on the river. Well worth the price for the enjoyment of watching the water sports, followed by the peacefulness of the river. Wonderful grounds for walking and socializing. Quiet at night, lively, but still peaceful during the day. We'll gladly return. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We stayed one night. The overnight spots are long and level but have no shade. Check your site for ant colonies. The longer term and permanent sites have trees, some with slabs. This is a pretty neat campground for river oriented activities with a launch ramp and dock. We camped here in a Motorhome.
The sites were very uneven. The wifi was horrible and the manager seemed to be pre-occupied with other things. Too pricy for my taste. I would not recommend this park to anyone since the partying goes on too much. The trees are chopped all the way back leaving no shade. The highway noise was more than I liked and the gas lines crossing the river was just a site for sore eyes. Any campground that allows a dog in the store would deem unfit to me. Unless you are a tenant at this park you are just a site number. I would not recommend this park to anyone. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.

Here's a great idea, they actually stay open until 8:00 PM so they got our business! A very friendly place; we were escorted to our site which is the consummate over-night spot: Over 100' long (on grass) with full hook-up (great cable TV). You are right on the river (only park models have river views) with a sandy beach a couple of steps away. You absolutely get freeway noise, which does not bother us much, but may bother others. There are some full-timers, and an RV storage area. However, we felt this was a great overnight spot and would definitely come back. Thanks KOA! We camped here in a Motorhome.
Wow, this place is the best for Dogs! They have huge play area and off-leash swimming for the dogs was encouraged by the management. They have a quiet little bay on the Colorado River for both dog and human recreation. No breed or weight restrictions, but they don't allow aggressive dogs. I like the approach to restrict the bad dogs instead of all dogs that fit a particular "profile". The 50' pull-trough we had was level grass, not black-top or concrete. The park is very roomy and green compared to most KOAs we've visited in the southwest. We would have given them a perfect "10", except for two things: First, The bathroom showers had minor issues like a broken shower-door lock and mold on the ceiling. Second, their "free" wireless Internet is too limited to be useful. Paid service is available, but it was slow compared to our cellular Internet. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
A very nice, scenic park, and everything was very clean and well maintained. We stayed on the grassy sites away from the river and found they were a bit too close for comfort. The way the hookups are arranged, you park your rigs facing in opposite directions so that when you open your rv door, you are facing the adjacent site's rv door - no less than 10' feet away - forget about awnings. The park has nice walks along the river, a little beach and a great, fenced dog park. My big complaint though is the wifi system. It is operated by a private company, you pay for it, and it just didn't work! We always got a very strong signal(excellent) but could not access the internet at all. It seemed there was very limited bandwith available unless you tried in the middle of the night. Very frustrating. A nice park, but I wouldn't consider staying here again unless they fixed the wifi problem. I've had it with parks that advertise wifi and don't deliver. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Another KOA out in the middle of nowhere and just the thing for a one night stopover. The two folks who run it are a real hoot - leftovers from the sixties - who were very kind and funny too and made a point to give us a lovely site. There is direct access to the Colorado River here but the water runs fast so care is advised. Most sites have grass underfoot and trees overhead, which is nice, and when we were there in October it was very quiet - also nice. A number of people live here year round but the campground is extremely clean and well-kept - the camp hosts are doing a great job. We would definitely stay here again. But watch out for the fat Weimeraner - he's a pizza mooch! :) We camped here in a Motorhome.
The park is located right on the Colorado River on the California side. It's about a 3.5-4.5 hour ride from LA depending on the traffic. It's clean and fairly well maintained. We came in rather late and usually KOA posts your site with instructions near the office. This was not the case here. We basically wandered the park until we found a spot. The only space available were in a flat grassy area. It was a full hook-up site and everything worked properly. We were only there overnight so it was fine. A security guard came by as I was setting up and we worked out all of the niceties. One thing to note. Remember I said a "grassy area" near "the river". Well, my ankles beared the marks of several mosquito bites in the short time I was outside hooking things up. If we had been there for several nights I'm not sure that hanging out outside would have been terribly fun. Still, it's right off of the 10 Fwy and it's easy on/off. There's a little noise from the freeway but nothing to be concerned about. This is Blythe after all and your A/C should hum loud enough to drown out any noise. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This used to be known as Destiny Riviera. It's a decent park. Staff is extremely kind and helpful. They escort you to the site; even offered to help us hook up. Sites are very narrow and close to each other. Most are not able to open awnings even. We went on Memorial Weekend. Were surprised to easily find two adjacent spots. Also surprised at the party vibe. There are a number of permanent sites. They were partying as well as the campers on both sides. Had a DJ all weekend. Heavy drinking and swearing. Everyone was really nice, and a few years ago, we might have been right there with them, but we all have young kids now and it wasn't the environment we were looking for. The River has a party atmosphere in general, so of course, so does the campground. The river itself was decent. Seemed like a great big launch spot. The cabins and permanent site were the only real river front (above). A few sites were just behind those. I wouldn't really call it riverfront camping, just near the river. No tents allowed on RV sites. The beach was small, but did the job nicely. Nice store, but not cheap. Pool was nice, not heated for those who mind. Just off of the freeway, but we never heard any noise from our site. I think we were in space C7. There are two sides to the park, I guess a north side and a south side, we were south (opposite of cabins, and tents). Campfires only permitted if off the ground. Probably wouldn't go back just because I know there are nicer places out there, but ok to stay if nothing else is available. Nor would I go to McIntyre. People said that's the party place to be (at least that holiday it was). Stopped by Mayflower on the way back. The beach was not fantastic, but the park was a lot nicer. Would prefer to stay there. People were tubing which was also intriguing (dangerous maybe??). And a lot cheaper. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This KOA is on the Colorado river on the border of CA/AZ. There are no RV sites (that I could see) right on the river, but we walked down to it and there was a nice sandy area that we walked along the river. There is a boat launch. There is a great fenced in dog run where your dog can run free, which was thoughtful. The pull through site we had was wide and long, but not very level as the sites are very sandy from being next to the river. And I mean deep sand in some parts of your site. We never went into the bathrooms so I canâ€™t comment on those, and they were quite a ways from our site. The trash wasnâ€™t emptied enough, and overnight some dogs or something got into it and spread it around, as there were no lids on the cans. There were also some sketchy permanent residents. Overall, an ok place to spend the night if youâ€™re on your way somewhere and thereâ€™s no where else to stay. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Surely they have to be kidding with this place; over priced with poor service and no care for the campground. An open parking lot with storage; very unattractive. What Colorado River? Wire towers everywhere and right off the highway, so noisy we couldn't sleep. We didn't even unhook we knew we would leave in the morning. Had to stay the night after a long drive to get there. Return? We couldn't wait to leave. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This park is situated on the Colorado river with several pull through sites that look out at the river. It is also located right next to I-10 which does cause some noise from the truck traffic. The sites are grassy, level and many have shade trees. The staff is friendly and helpful. There is an excellent area to walk a dog. The space between sites was excellent and all areas were very clean. There is a boat launch for the boating enthusiast. There are a few park models if you have visiting friends that overlook the river. You receive one hour of Wi-Fi free per day. Otherwise there is an additional charge. We stayed here for three days and would return. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Very few campers were in the park when we were there, so it felt as though we were parked in the middle of a big grass pasture with a few trees dotted around. Terrific staff. Easy highway access. Laid back group of permanent residents. Clean. Right on the river, which was at its lowest, drought ebb at the time. Probably a great place for a family spring break when it has more water. Good place for an overnight otherwise. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This campground has changed names to Blythe KOA. It has cleaned up A LOT!! They are moving out the permanent live ins which makes for a much nicer park for all. They do have cottages on one side of the park which are waterfront however this park offers a beach, a large launch area and a unique walking trail to both sides of the Colorado River. Everyday the employees were working on new things to improve this park. We stayed in a Motorhome and the friendliest KOA staff we have seen-the evening couple not only were friendly, the husband helped hook us up! That is service that I have never found anywhere. We will stay here again when we pass through this area. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This used to be a park we liked a lot but it has changed. The riverfront sites we enjoyed in the past are gone. Replaced by boxy little pre-fab "cabins" that block the river views for everyone else. Recently the park became a KOA. The new owners have cleaned the place up a bit but have imposed a big increase in fees. The rate on our pull-through site was $55, by far the highest in the area. We will not be back. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Staff was friendly and helpful. The grass was quite dry, but they were watering and working on getting it green. There are a lot of people who appear to be permanent, but they were very friendly. There is a nice recreation room with some activities scheduled. Seems like it would be a nice place to spend a little more time. We will go back again! We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
We made our first trip to the Riviera Resort. The resort was very clean and well kept. The spaces were big enough for my 34' double slide and tow vehicle. The pool and spa were clean the staff was very friendly. We went during spring break and the park was safe and well supervised. I saw no problems and was impressed with the quality of the campers at this resort. A great place for my family and I'll be back. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This park is under new ownership and some improvements have been made. We had a river view site and it was very nice. Office staff is friendly and site was spacious. WiFi didn't work from our site, that is hit miss at best with most parks but on a whole this is a nice park. We camped here in a Motorhome.
The overall park was good facilities, personal etc. however we were disappointed that the river view sites are now park model trailer's that they rent and the renters park 2 or 3 cars in road making it inpossible to leave with out tracking them down. This park is under new ownership and is catering to the jet ski crowd. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We stayed here and visited Quartzsite from here. The sites are narrow, hard to navigate and poorly marked. The "front" row is on the Colorado river and pretty nice. A bit over-priced for the space and area. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This park is gets crowded and with no real regard to any kind of rules as to where people
park their "toys", quiet hours, etc. It is very tight for large rigs. We would not go back there unless it was absolutely necessary. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.

Pretty decent place. Our site was overlooking the inlet/river near the launch ramp. We were
there during the week so missed the boating crowd, as I heard it gets quite wild. Our site was very muddy as it appeared that someone forgot to turn off the
sprinkler that they move around to keep the grass green. Sites are dirt and grass. Office staff was nice and they had a nice modem area for the laptops in
the office/store. Personally don't think it is a "10", but we are not boaters either. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.

We have stayed here, and at Destiny's McIntyre (also in Blythe) many, many times. We have always been extremely impressed with cleanliness of both facilities, and the staff has been very friendly and helpful each time we've been here. It's very
convenient when driving back and forth between L.A. and Phoenix (they have another park there as well). Right on the river, lots of grass and shade at both
places. We highly recommend! We camped here in a Motorhome.

Very poorly maintained sites. I had to have them cut tree branches before I could get into my site. Sites were not level. There was almost no space between sites. However, park is on river and pool area is very pretty. I would never go back!!! We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.

We have stayed at Riviera RV resort and also McIntyre, both Destiny RV resorts properties. Riviera is an excellent deal and very well-run. The staff was terrific, from the front desk to the maintenance guys. I would definitely return, and reccommend 100%! Great River views, great ramp, lots of GRASS and TREES, something you don't always see in the desert. They also have reduced rates during the week ($25.00). The best park for the best price, anywhere in the area. Try them! We camped here in a camper.
