Daily rate includes KOA discount. New owners under the KOA moniker are upgrading the CG significantly (pool under construction, new restrooms, fresh landscaping). Go north off I-8 at exit 119, about a mile. Local access road is two lane in fair condition. CG easy to find with KOA signage and a big American flag. New owners very friendly and helpful. Credit cards accepted.

Tent camping sites are available but no cabins or yurts. CG roads are gravel with spots of asphalt, wide with gentle turns, no overhead obstacles. FHU-20/30/50. Site conditions vary as transition to KOA standards continue. Sites are spacious with desert landscaping, gravel and dirt, level with utilities at mid-rig, threaded, 4" sewer connection just above ground level. Picnic tables but no patios. Good satellite views. Open fires not permitted but BBQs okay. Adequate water pressure with good taste.

Minimal office store: snack food items, soft drinks, RV accessories. New restroom building still under construction. Single shower in rec-hall modern and clean (score "A"). No propane sales (gas stations in town have propane). Laundry room. Small playground. Free cable TV. Free Wi-Fi but limited bandwidth. Verizon coverage at "5-bars"; 4G coverage at "5-bars". No fitness room, pool still under construction, no game room. Notable railroad but minimal traffic noise. Recycle bins behind dumpsters.

Bug Report: see office for information on poisonous snakes, insects, and frogs/toads. Otherwise, small brown ants invading; pre-treat is recommended (early February). We camped at Gila Bend KOA (formerly Augie's Quail Trail RV Park) in a Fifth Wheel.

Tips for other Campers:

Gila Bend is a cute, little, "Spit-in-the-road."

Some fast food restaurants, local restaurants, no major restaurant chains, no Wal-Mart, no grocery store (some supplies at Circle-K).

Numerous gas stations. Diesel credit at $2.65. No Camping World or other RV stores.

One, local, hardware store. Nearest "big city" is 32 miles away.

First let me say they do have laundry facilities. That was important to us and I didn't see it in the other reviews or on the KOA list of amenities here. That could be because they're still updating the campground and the laundry room is fairly new. The washers and dryers are each $1.50, but the laundry room is clean and there is even a clothesline with clothespins and an ironing board and a great patio to sit on while you wait. I was impressed!! There is a large, clean, well appointed clubhouse attached. Everything here is in very good condition and the folks are helpful and friendly. The sites are gravel, but very spacious and angled so you aren't looking directly into your neighbor's camper. Unlike other's comments I found the wifi very good. We didn't stream (against the rules) but for checking email (and typing up this review) the wifi is better than most. Gila Bend itself is not a great place to stay or visit, but if you are passing through be sure to stay here. We camped at Gila Bend KOA (formerly Augie's Quail Trail RV Park) in a Fifth Wheel.

Tips for other Campers:

The only thing we did was eat at the Space Age restaurant (not great, but not bad either) and visit the Painted Rocks Petroglyph site which was worth the trip and didn't take very long. There is a BLM campground there with no hook-ups, but it has restrooms.

This new KOA has a new owner (Oct 2016) and has turned this park around. If you're looking for a park that is far away from everything and is clean with sites spread out, this is the place. Stayed here some years back and I couldn't believe how much it has changed. Well done Scott. We camped at Gila Bend KOA (formerly Augie's Quail Trail RV Park) in a Motorhome.

What a pleasant surprise. These are the largest sites I have ever encountered in any KOA. Minimal leveling needed. Gravel sites. 24 channel cable. Their wifi actually works...sometimes slow but overall worked well. Some permanents but all the sites I saw were clean and orderly. Their KampK9 is divided into small sections, 2 with grass and the others packed sand with doggy bags provided. Able to separate the social dogs from the less than social ones easily. The staff and owner are extremely pleasant and helpful. Escort to your site who waits to make sure you understand the hookups...easy peasy, and labeled on each side for electric and cable. Everything here seems to be in good repair and a work in progress for new showers and pool area. We camped at Gila Bend KOA (formerly Augie's Quail Trail RV Park) in a Motorhome.

Very nice KOA park located just off I-8. Sites are 100' x 55' level gravel. Free cable and wi-fi and picnic table. Park is very well maintained in all areas. Major upgrades are in progress including a pool and dog wash area. Nice dog park with grass. We would definitely stay here again.

As people on here know, I do not give a 10; nobody is perfect (well, maybe my wife!). Very nice staff, clean and wide. They have put a lot of hard work and money into this place in the year it has been a KOA. And much more coming. HIGHLY recommend it!

We stayed because of reviews and were very happy. Super friendly manager at check in. The place is super clean. The next morning the owner opened early for me to buy ice. We would definitely come back. We camped at Gila Bend KOA (formerly Augie's Quail Trail RV Park) in a Motorhome.

I LOVED this park! Who'd have thought a tiny town like Gila Bend would have such a treasure? HUGE level pull-thus, outstanding staff, the BEST dog park ever (not large but extremely well thought out). The RV park location is perfect if you need to rest before Yuma or Tucson or wherever. Some reviewers complained of train noise. The trains do not blow horns and I found the train hum soothing, like a white noise kind of thing. I will plan future trips with this park in mind.

Pleasant/inexpensive KOA in the desert with good desert views. Super good dog park with nice grass. Very wide and extremely long spaces. About 5 miles to Gila Bend where you can eat and get fuel. No grocery store in Gila Bend. Very recent improvements evident and a new pool was being installed. Moderate semi truck noise from a nearby highway. Train noise minimal. Looking forward to going back. We camped at Gila Bend KOA (formerly Augie's Quail Trail RV Park) in a Motorhome.

Stayed one nite 2016-09-24. The park manager was friendly, professional, and attentive. We arrived at 1700, and the park is just a couple minutes off I-8. Overnight sites were grouped on north side of park. Park was large, and there are many improvements underway. The staff does an excellent job keeping the park clean and groomed. Gravel site was level and spacious. We will likely return. We camped at Gila Bend KOA (formerly Augie's Quail Trail RV Park) in a Travel Trailer.

We stayed twice at the Gila Bend KOA in May. Staff was friendly, check-in was quick. The park had a lot of spaces available with summer coming. We had a back-in which was very easy to get into the first stop and a pull through the second stop. The park is very easy to navigate, the sites are very wide and long. The utilities were easy to hook up and worked well no issues at all. They have a very nice dog park with excellent grass our dogs loved. The grass almost seems out of place here. We didn't go through the actual own of Gila Bend so I cant say what is there. There is a Shell travel center just down the road that has easy to get into RV pumps. It was a nice stay the price was good and we will be back for overnight stops when headed to San Diego. We camped at Gila Bend KOA (formerly Augie's Quail Trail RV Park) in a Fifth Wheel.

We had stayed in the park a few times before for just touch-and-gos under the previous ownership and decided to try a longer stay. The new KOA ownership has made a couple of key improvements and is working on more. The improved WiFi was excellent, and the new cable TV service a very nice addition. There are also great walking loops for people and dogs. The park is clean, and the staff very friendly and helpful. The only downside is the park's location near an interstate highway, busy railroad route, and military bombing range. Despite that, we think this is one of the better parks we have stayed in and appreciate the changes the new ownership has made. We would certainly stay here again.

This is Augie's Quail Trail RV Park and is in the process of changing over to a Gila Bend KOA. It is a very nice clean park with large mostly pull through spaces, management is friendly and helpful. There are several places to eat in Gila Bend but the closest shopping is 40 miles away in Goodyear AZ. We would stay here again if in the area.

It was ok, nice enough for a night while passing through. Verizon signal was choppy. It was basically just a big open park with nothing around and no amenities or reason to stay. The word mediocre comes to mind. We camped at Gila Bend KOA (formerly Augie's Quail Trail RV Park) in a Fifth Wheel.

Just stayed one night. The laundry was ample and very clean. The shower, there was only one for each gender, was very old but seemed clean enough. The location was convenient from I-8 and yet rural enough to be pleasant. Staff very friendly. The WiFi was often slow. Good Verizon signal.
