A Coast to Coast campground that is very marginal. The lack of maintenance shows. They have a strict policy of no arrivals until noon. If you get there just an hour early you have the choice of paying $5 or park down the hill in a dusty area with no hookups even if the temperature is over 100 degrees. We payed an additional fee for 50 amp service only to have the electric quit one evening when the temperature was 104 degrees. It was repaired the next morning and the problem was a bad ground in the electric box. There is little or no shade. The clerk in the office was very snippy and was not helpful. Wi-Fi is available from Tengo Internet for an additional fee of $10.95 per week. Paved roads with dirt campsites. Convenient to Casinos. We do not plan to return again. - Bill In Florida
For an older RV park this is one of the best I've ever stayed in. The staff was very friendly and helpful. Most sites are occupied by long-term residents with a small number of sites for over-niters or short-term stays. It's very quiet here - no motorcycles, ATVs, loud vehicles, young partiers, etc. The RV park, pool area, laundry room, lounge, bath and shower rooms are very clean and well-kept. Definitely worth the effort one must make in order to get an available site. - User213

Where do I begin? While the park looks good on the web site and even when you first pull in, it is all smoke and mirrors. We stayed at this park for 3 months only because we had to due to business obligations. Take that map and rules the manger gives you and ball it up and throw it in the trash can because there is no one who enforces these rules once you clear the front gates.
I will start with the pool, it was in the triple digit temps and there is no cover at the pool so you would only want to use it at night, sorry, they lock the gate to the pool at dusk along with the community room where the weight room is at. The only reason for this we could find was that the manager was too lazy to go out and lock it at 10 or 11PM like most parks. There is air conditioning in the weight room but, the park manager has the control under lock n key and she will not turn it on unless she sees a reason to. We complained to her that working out in the gym was hazardous due to the heat and no air but, she will only turn it on if she feels the need.
The same goes for the showers. It is so hot in the bathrooms that when you get out of the shower your already sweating. The water has one temp and that is scolding hot. There was a light out in the shower that we asked to have fixed for 3 months and it was never fixed. So your showering in the dark.
You cannot run your air and use the microwave at the same time at this park. It will constantly blow breakers. We had to help a couple who were first time RV'ers with resetting the breaker because the manager was not around even though she lives there. Don't expect any help with anything at this park.
The manager gives you the park rules all of which are not enforced. Great if your looking for a place to let your dog run loose, have loud parties, people double parking everywhere including in your space and fireworks being let off. We brought it to her attention but, it continued. She appears to be a partier herself and doesn't want to be the bad person. She does give a lot of lip service but no action. I like to party like most people. I love classic rock and I know when to let it rip but, I also know where I am and who is around me and I respect my neighbors. Wish others felt the same way. When there is no one to enforce the rules then their is anarchy.
Then there is the river which made you go there in the first place. Forget about launching your boat because the river is always low at the ramp, which in itself is a nightmare to use especially if you have a large boat. If by chance the water is up, you are not supposed to dock your boat for more then one hour but, everyone we saw left their boat docked so you could not use what space there was.
Then there were people who camped out on the boat ramp because there was no beach access to the water. People also left their boats and jets skis in the swimming area because there was no room at the dock and if there was, they thought that since you were not supposed to dock your boat for over an hour, then why not just leave it in the swimming area. Don't leave your boat or jet ski out over night because the river is so low till around noon that your water toy will be sitting on the ground. - SteelHorseRider
Sorry, but I don't agree with the previous reviewers and for a couple of very specific reasons. We called ahead for a reservation because the website looked so lovely and because it was right on the river and we have dogs who love to swim in the river. We had asked for two spaces together as we are traveling with friends. Now, the picture on the website of palm trees and grass is there, yes and it is lovely. But there is another side to this park - a gravel lot that backs up to a chain link fence with no vegetation whatsoever - bleak describes it best. There were two spots right next to each other in the "pretty" area and as both couples arrived separately, we asked for those sites. When I asked, could we please be there, the woman shrugged her shoulders and said "I thought about putting you there but no, I'm putting you in space 4 (which is by the desolate fence area). We watched carefully and NO ONE took those sites that night. The other negative for me is that when I went to do the laundry, there were no lights in the laundry room. Perhaps a couple light bulbs were burned out in the ceiling fixture but the wall switch light had been replaced with a blank plate so using the wall switch was no longer possible. It was pitch black in the laundry, with the exception of some light from the outside. It was scary to be in there in the dark when some guy comes in, after having a few drinks, looking around! I took my husband back with me to get our things from the dryer and he's a contractor and also couldn't find any lights that were functional. My next complaint is the check in system. It took close to 20 minutes to check in And in the end, I got three separate pieces of paper. It seemed such overkill. It was easier to apply for my Global Entry card with Homeland security! In addition, we were given three pages of rules - there were exactly 50 rules, in rather specific legalese. Really? Now for the good things. The pretty RV spots are really pretty - nice green grass, well tended spaces, palm trees, very very nice. There is a great little cove where the dogs can swim, protected, safe, clean, very much a plus. The club room looked nice and tidy. The pool was being worked on while we were there. Overall, the thing about the spaces left a bad taste in my mouth. There was just no reason not to let us stay in those nice spots and delegate us to the fence. So if you plan to stay, ask which spots are available. The pretty spots are down the middle. And it seems to me that lighting should be watched carefully. - twestover
Nightly rate includes Good Sam discount and taxes. Very friendly office staff and beautiful facilities. Clubhouse offers a full kitchen, outside lounges, books, large screen TV and a beautiful view of the Colorado River. Sites and road are gravel but very level. Nice picnic tables at each site. There's a beach area with lounge chairs and a boat dock. Pool was drained and inaccessible during our stay. I would come again. - RVtravelers2
We stayed on the river in the no hook up sites. Had great site right on the river. The hookup sites also looked very good, but we didn't stay there. Spent two nights here and would stay again. - Alvin Lloyd
We stayed at Camp Davis for a week in Feb. 2015. It could be an excellent park if it weren't for the highway noise and the airplane noise. There are Military training exercises going on all day long. They do touch and go landings and every three to four minutes a plane comes overhead, all day long. There is a stoplight 1/4 mile from the Park entrance and another stoplight at the park entrance. Being on a hill you hear the trucks, loud motorcycles, and cars accelerating up the hill and trucks jake braking down the hill all night long. The bathrooms are in need of updating and cleaning, as is the laundry. The grounds are very well maintained and the staff very friendly and helpful. The setting is beautiful, with areas on the river for sitting, wading, and swimming. They do not have WiFi but there is a private service available. No cable but the major channels came in with an antenna. If you don't mind noise this is a very nice park. The dry camp sites on the river are quieter and very beautiful spots. - DBG
We really liked this park. We parked next to the Colorado River, and unlike earlier reviews we heard NO traffic noise and witnessed no annoying military exercises of any kind. We marked bad on cleanliness because there was quite a bit of dog feces at our site. This is a county run park, our site had no BBQ but did have a fire ring of sorts. We stayed on the primitive side so we could be closest to the river and had no regrets. We would definitely stay here again. - kcjflea
With its appealing Spanish entry, the first impression was cleanliness. We are glad we stopped here. A secure park with an evening guard, it's a very clean senior haven with park models and with sparkling swimming pools, which offers overnight RVs an inexpensive full hook-up option while visiting Laughlin's casinos. We would have rated a 10 if there had been shade trees. We would stay here again as an overnight stop. - from Latte Land
This is basically a 55+ resort. Many park models but very nice in a Spanish type setting. Super clean. Very large area although the sites are close you don't feel cramped. They have two large pools (a cool pool and a warm pool), plus two hot tubs (a warm tub and a hot spa type). All salt water pools. Super grounds and lots of areas for hobbies. Very convenient to all major type stores. Only draw back, its windy in this area and it blows about 1/2 the month. Sometimes it can get high winds. Never could leave the awnings down. - srb1534
$5 per night (using the Golden Age Passport, $10 without) was for a mostly level site that was surrounded by a generous area of sand/gravel and beautiful desert vegetation including large oleander plants, which offered privacy for each site. Each primitive site has a concrete picnic table and fire ring. This campground is located on the outskirts of Bullhead City where every amenity is available. Our site had a 360? view of the surrounding valleys and mountains. Lake Mead National Recreation Area offers plenty of outdoor activities including hiking and biking trails, rock climbing, boating, fishing, hunting, and picnicking. AT&T and Verizon service were three ? four bars of LTE. There were over 20 OTA TV stations and we received many radio stations including HD stations. - DD Rolling Ranch
This park is partly a mobile homes park and has RV sites as well. We used this park as a planned overnight stop and were satisfied with it. Personnel was friendly, facilities were clean and it was quiet in the night. The RV sites are all gravel and arranged in a circle with no trees or bushes so there is not much shade or privacy between sites. There is one or two grills on the lawn in the middle of the RV sites circle. I wouldn't come here to spend my holiday, but I definitely would stay there again for an overnight stop or two. Oh, there's also a store in the park down at the lake shore that has some basic supplies. - Chbronson
I guess you could give this park a 10 because they only charge 10, i don't know but I wish there were more places to stay like this that when passing through, you could get by with ten dollars. Their were no hook-ups, and thats ok for ten bucks at night. It got pretty quiet even when the bikers rally was going on, outside of the summer months I would stay here again. - monaco cruiser
Sites are large and gravel with cement patio. All connections are at the rear of the spot. Cable was good. Wi-Fi was good. Buildings on the ends of the park with shower and toilet are old, but were clean. The ladies' showers in the clubhouse have NO privacy once you step out of the shower area to dress. The handicapped shower in the ladies room doesn't even have a plastic curtain. This could be fixed so simple with curved curtains and a small stool at each shower, but it has been that way at least for 12 years. The pool was not technically open this time of year, but since the weather was in the 90s the time we were there we used that and the jacuzzi anyway. The grounds are well kept, and the people that check us in are friendly. - traveling
Pros: Large park with many available spaces. The pool/spa and community center were reopened recently and are very nice. Most of the sites appear to be level,large lots. Cons: The power connection is on the side opposite the water and sewer. No tables and very little shade at the sites, and the patio slabs are fairly small and in many cases do not lineup for access from the coach. Office closes at 4:00 - Norm Nice Guy
Checked in and was told "no clubhouse, no internet, no pool, no hot tub...all due to a fire". The internet got up and running later, but it is paid internet. Was here last year and found out the pool is solar heated so is not turned on until late April and has not been running during winter months for a few years. I have always felt this is false advertisement when the campgrounds say "heated pool" and it is only heated during summer months. Rate was based on C2C, part of the Sunrise groups, so hopefully things will improve. - Pinantan
The grounds, showers and laundry room were clean. The office offered mail service. Our site was cramped and uneven but we had quiet neighbors. The park was full and included full time campers and snow bird campers. We stayed 3 months. The cost cited was on a monthly rate which was lower than most other parks. The swimming pool was small but nicely heated. - Martins
Nice location and the rate was very reasonable. I do wish that their electricity cap rates were made more clear on the website.. and they dance around that water is not included. It was the first of a couple parks we tried in the area. Better location than most, but we did not get the same community feel nor were there as many activities made available. - SnowbirdSusie
An older park with tight, small spaces, which is typical for parks in the area. It is necessary to coordinate with your neighbor when you want to leave. There were many permanent residents but that did not bother us. The price was reasonable and staff friendly. There is a charge for WiFi, but we did not use it. We would stay here overnight if in the area again. - california traveler
None of the pull-thru spots are even close to level. Ladies in the office either rude or not helpful at all. We received a paper in Yuma for the $98 special. After reading the brochure on the park we found it was advertised for $89.90 a week. Brochure also had wrong address and their comment was they were printed before the new address. What happen to using labels. Will not come here again!!! - teach42
We like this park the rate reflects a coupon obtained in Quartzsite. The park itself has a nice layout, the back ins along the entrance have a great view of the Colorado River and casinos lit up at night. The park is showing a little wear; it could use some TLC. For some reason the cable TV is snowy, most people put their antennas up, don't know what the situation is here, didn't really want to ask. For this rate we would definitely stay here again. This is probably our fourth time staying here; very convenient to golfing, the river, the casinos and the shopping you need to do, it works out great. - monaco cruiser
A very quiet pleasant park. Mostly regular year around tenants. The staff and management are very friendly and helpful. Wonderful pool & spa. Just a nice place to stay anytime of year. - ccjj
Have seen reviews complaining about the wind. We don't seem to have that much of a problem. Have had worse. Staff has been very nice. We have site along the ridge. The view is so beautiful. They have WiFi and cable included, but both are pretty poor. It is very pet friendly with two dog pens and people walking dogs all the time. Everyone is very friendly and makes you feel so welcome. Has heated pool and hot tub which we have used and enjoyed. On site deli and convenient store which will deliver to your site. This place is my kind of place. I could live here if it were possible. - MaMaDee
Not a resort. Pool had problems, not working. Water pressure non existent. Site not level. Not resort quality amenities. Going on down the road to a new park, that is a resort. - camping princess
We stayed two nights at Silver View RV Park. We selected a site on the ridge that faced north toward the Laughlin casinos. I pulled into the site backward so the windshield of the MH was facing the view. I was able to reach the hook up for electric and water but not sewer. Not a problem since we were only there two nights. We had a great view and since we were on a ridge, total privacy so we didn't need to close the curtains at night. Sites are gravel and fairly level. Staff were friendly. Small pool and spa which we didn't use because of the weather. Just below the ridge is a very busy road. Traffic, lots of it, going up the steep hill made for a very noisy stay. The thing that bothered us the most was the wind. It is not uncommon for it to be windy in Laughlin/Bullhead City. However the location of the rv park, on the high ridge, makes the wind even worse. It rocked our MH during our entire stay. It was difficult to hold the door open when getting in and out of the MH. The wind on the ridge was at least twice as strong as in the valley near the river. If you can get a weather forecast that indicates no wind it might be worth staying here for a night or two, assuming you want a view and can tolerate the noise. Next time I'm going to try one of the parks down on the strip in Laughlin. - AKJohn
