A very nice park and the people were very pleasant. Some shade but not a lot. We camped at Holt's Shell RV Park in a Motorhome.

This was a good stop to break up the trip between Tucson and Yuma. The site was level and traveled. You are located pretty close to your neighbor and they do have a few long term guests. We did see a pretty sunset. The store has some basics, but since it is the middle of the desert the prices are higher. We might stop again. We camped at Holt's Shell RV Park in a Travel Trailer.

This park provides a great stay for overnight or longer stay travelers at a remarkably low price. Be sure to check in at the convenience store before entering the park; there's plenty of room to park while registering. Easy access to the park from I-8, long, level pull-thru sites, and full hookups with a laundry and desert dog-walking area. Some noise at night from the truck stop, but otherwise quiet and dark at night. WiFi at the store; unusable in the park. Good Verizon cell and data, and no obstructions to a satellite. Get here early and call ahead to check if there are spaces available, this park fills up quickly. We camped at Holt's Shell RV Park in a Motorhome.

Our intent was to spend one night and stayed for two. We were also pulling a tow vehicle and did not have to disconnect.

We arrived from the East going to California. Our site was easy to pull in and pull out when left. The Interstate also was easy to get back onto. Everything was clean and level at the site and we did not use any other facilities.

The park was really interesting in the way it was located just enough off of the Interstate. They has all the services that we needed. We stayed another day because we wanted to walk up and down the desert trails by the Gila Bend River, (no water).

They also have lots of dry camping outside the park with a free dump and water. If you need propane they have it also.

Reading the other reviews I agree this is a great stop when traveling. .

We would definitely stop here again in the future. We camped at Holt's Shell RV Park in a Motorhome.

We love this place. It's great for an overnighter or for a few days. For us as fulltimers, it's a chance to avail full hookups, 50amps and fresh water. The pull-thru gravel lots are easy to negotiate and plenty wide. Although there is WiFi, we couldn't log on, maybe because the campground was busy.

The nearby store is great for gift shopping and basic supplies. The staff is friendly and efficient. Propane and diesel fuel is all right there. We've been here several times and have had a consistently good experience. We camped at Holt's Shell RV Park in a Motorhome.

I wish there were more parks like this near the interstate everywhere. It is inexpensive, with full hookups, pull throughs, and everything works. It is close to the interstate, there's gas, and there's food. We camped at Holt's Shell RV Park in a Motorhome.

We just needed an overnight on our way to Yuma. This was a perfect place to stop. It was easy to get into once you realized that the RV park is behind the Shell gas station. Everything was as advertised except that we were supposed to stop out in the parking lot and go into the Shell station to register and pay and a site would be assigned to us. We parked first and then registered but they did not make us move. Long sites, gravel, level, laundry, wifi. There is a unique gas station/gift shop with lots of neat extras to buy. We will stay here again. We camped at Holt's Shell RV Park in a Motorhome.

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.
