We needed a spot for one night that wouldn't require us to unhook. Based on the reviews here, we picked Holt's Shell and RV Park. It was a good choice.

This place is clean, well laid out, and offers basic services, but that's all we needed. We washed clothes and refilled both our propane tank and our gas tank. People in the store were friendly, and the place felt very safe overnight. We would definitely stay here again.

I agree with the reviewer who wished there were more stopover stops like this and fewer overpriced, stuffy, roadside "resorts." We camped at Holt's Shell RV Park in a Motorhome.

Definitely a good value with Passport America discount. Long enough pull thru site that we didn't have to unhook our tow vehicle. We would stay here again. We camped at Holt's Shell RV Park in a Motorhome.

Nightly rate is Escapees. High rating due to low cost and easy location off the hwy. FHU, mostly pull thru sites. Far enough behind the Shell station so that it's not a factor. No cable, ok wifi, but can't beat it for the money. Nice Shell station with convenience store, self serve soft ice cream machine, and marketplace featuring mexican pottery and crafts. Subway shop walking distance. Nice views of the desert. Stayed here again on our return trip thru AZ, highly recommend, will definitely stay again. We camped at Holt's Shell RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

We were traveling cross-country and called ahead from the road to ensure there was a space available. We got the last space with hook-ups; they also have a large open parking area without hook-ups. Their website says they don't take reservations but almost always have spaces open; ignore that and call ahead. Our site was gravel and fairly level and the location is very convenient to I-8. We were disappointed to hear from the very disinterested woman at check-in that showers cost an extra $7 and are at the gas station area in front of the RV park. That being said, the shower facilities were great. They are roomy private shower "suites" with a toilet and sink, and a towel and bar soap is provided. We camped at Holt's Shell RV Park in a Motorhome.

I was a bit skeptical - RV park in back of a truck stop. However, the front area is large enough for trucks to park overnight, but very few did. Once you were inside the park, it was fine, not even enough noise from the road. Not much to do around the area, but fine for a one or two day stop. And the wifi worked actually better than some parks I've been in. We camped at Holt's Shell RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Excellent overnight park. Located at a truck/gas station, plenty of room to maneuver. Good electricity and water. Pet area is great. We need more places like this and less stuffy 55+ parks in AZ. We camped at Holt's Shell RV Park in a Motorhome.

The first time we tried to stay here (back in December), it was full. This time we had no problem getting a site. We paid the Passport America rate. Check-in is at the Shell station. The place is clean, sites are roomy pull-throughs. Great place for an overnight, though we did meet a couple that had been there since November! We camped at Holt's Shell RV Park in a Travel Trailer.

PA rate. Great place to stop for a night or 2 when traveling I-8. Long, level pull through sites with 50 amp service and sewer hookups. We would stay again if in the area. We camped at Holt's Shell RV Park in a Motorhome.

This is a good convenient RV park. It is close to I-8, but we did not hear any highway noise. Most sites are large, clean, level pull thrus. Sites and roads are gravel. The park is big rig friendly. Check in is at the Shell station. They do not take reservations. We paid $13 which is the Escapees and Passport America discount rate. There needs to be more of this kind of parks along the highways for overnighters. We will stay there again. We camped at Holt's Shell RV Park in a Motorhome.

Rate is for a 50 amp full hookup pull-through site with an Escapees discount. Roads, sites, in fact the entire park is gravel. Sites are wide, electric and water pressure is excellent. No trees so good for satellites and has a strong Verizon signal. Free Wi-Fi was acceptable but not great. They have paved additional areas of the large parking area away from the RV park, and there was no truck noise overnight as trucks parked there. Holts has separate RV pumps for gas and diesel, a dump station and propane in addition to the RV park. With the discount, it is a great value and we would stay here again if in the area.

Passport America and Escapees discounts. This park is a good example of what is needed for an overnight stop. Easy in and out, power/water/sewer. Subway next to the fuel station was great for sandwiches after our drive - no need to heat up the coach on a hot afternoon. Next morning out and on our way. A little noise from the road/trucks at the fuel station but not bad. Definitely would stop again. We camped at Holt's Shell RV Park in a Motorhome.

The price reflects the Passport America rate, including tax. Nothing fancy, but full hookups and free Wi-Fi. Only one site has any shade, but for the price, it's hard to beat. Very good access to open country to hike and walk the dog. Only drawback is that there is no cable or OTA television reception. :) So beware if that's important to you.

Rate paid was with the PA discount. The park is not large but there was plenty of space between sites. Wi-fi worked well. The park was quiet. Good for an overnight stop. We camped at Holt's Shell RV Park in a Motorhome.

If you can get in, this place is a real bargain at the $11.99 plus tax Passport America rate. They don't take reservations, so it can be tough to get a spot. Most sites appear to be taken by local workers, but their sites are clean and tidy. Full 50 amp hookups. Sites are level gravel, and the roads are smooth and wide. There is a single restroom, no showers. Surprisingly big laundry with four washers and four driers. Free TengoInternet. Fast Verizon 4G service. Beware, there is no longer a grocery store in Gila Bend, so don't count on supplies here. Excellent for an overnight stop. We camped at Holt's Shell RV Park in a Motorhome.
