This could be a nice park. It isn't. There are lovely palm trees and mature cactus gardens and the location is convenient. Unfortunately, there seems to be an overall lack of care, possibly due to the absentee owner [he lives in Canada]. My first observation was of people checking in at the office. The office staff was shockingly rude to everyone, treating paying guests as problems to be dealt with. She actually asked one woman, 'Well, what do YOU want?!' I did not use the restrooms but did use the laundry. Out of eight dryers, five were 'out of order'. I was told by residents that this has been the case for 'a long time'. I spoke to the owner by telephone because, if it were MY business, I'd want to know how it was being run. The owner spoke as if he was concerned about the park but I had the impression he didn't really care about the rude staff or the general lack of maintenance. The residents are very nice people and they deserve much better. - mockturtle

This is a very old park. At least two thirds of the park are full time residents and many have very run down units. The cable and wifi worked well. Unless you get a site in the "A" row I would not stay. In the back of the park is another section for short term stays called the B row. If you have a large motorhome or 5th wheel it is difficult to get in and out. Main road is paved and sites are gravel. - kegmaster

Flat, level, gravel, pull through spot about 75 long. Fence rail on each side to separate rigs. No picnic table or shade. Good place to stop for one night. Hit a hot streak today. 105 degrees at arrival, cooling down to 79 degrees. Park was clean and OK to walk dog around. - travelcouple

Pros: Spacious sites with large patio area, clean bathroom & showers, exceptionally friendly managers and staff, planned activities (jam sessions, card games, crafts). Cons: sites are dirt, roads are gravel = tons of dust. The nearest supermarket in Blythe (24 miles). Escapees 15% discount reflected in price. - Jayhart

Great place for overnight stay. In the winter they have a lot of snowbirds. The sites are level and are fairly wide. No one is in the office; you can't call ahead, but there is a care taker that will help when you arrive. Full hookups, some pull-throughs, most back-in. They allow pets and at the back of park is a nice area for walking. We have stayed here before and will come back again! - hapicamper

Rate is based (kind of) on a monthly rate. We loved this park. We had a huge site. There are lots of friendly people with planned activities. Verizon and AT&T worked just fine. The location is perfect in the little town, and you can ride your ATVs directly from the park. It's very nice, and we would definitely return. - Wanderin

Not a bad park, for Quartzsite... large staggered spaces. All gravel. Small restroom but very clean. Some sites only have 30amp. No cable, wifi was spotty. Very nice folks run the place. - Tredguy

Not much here but the basics, but those basics are provided with grace and style. There are lots of permanent rigs, but enough empty sites to accommodate travelers. Very basic. No picnic tables at sites. One single-person restroom with shower. Immaculate. Very nice host and hostess. There is a laundry room and a library/sitting room in central building with that one restroom. Great for an overnight stop, or even longer, if your intention is to be out in Quartzsite during the season. If we're traveling through again, this would be our first choice. This place doesn't seem to be in Woodalls. I haven't a clue how I found it. I may have just picked it off Google Maps. I'm giving it a 7 rating, not because it has lots of features, but because it does exactly what is needed, with no issues or problems. - Ed Greenberg

This was the worst place we have ever stayed! The facilities are run-down and mediocre. The wi-fi only works if you are right under the tower, and does not work all over the campground. (false advertising) I tried to use the washing machine, carefully following the directions, and it wouldn't start. I went to the office and the woman there was furious because I didn't know there was some goofy trick to jiggling the door. She became even more upset when I pointed to the directions on the machine, which did not mention the trick door. The restroom toilets and sinks were okay, but the shower floors looked cruddy. Worst of all, the entire campground is littered with broken pieces of concrete tire stops, which are used to separate the campsites. I tripped and fell over one of them in the dark and dislocated and fractured three bones in my ankle, which eventually required surgery with plates and screws, and months to recover. Immediately after falling, I went to the emergency room, then we came back to camp to pack up and leave. I phoned the office and told the obnoxious woman who answered the phone what had happened. I suggested they remove the trip and fall hazards, and she rudely refused to consider the suggestion. I told her we now have to leave a day early and asked if they could at least do the decent thing and refund the money for the unused day, and she said no; there are no refunds. Even if a guest is seriously injured. This place is DANGEROUS and the management has a callous disregard for guests safety. I will NEVER go to Quartzsite again, unless it is to sue B10 Campground. - DMarilynB

This is an old park, with old but fairly clean restrooms/showers. The grounds are well-kept. - Bill Strong

We stopped for one night in a class 'B' van. It's a large gravel lot like a lot of the RV parks in Quartzsite, if you've been to Quartzsite you know what I mean. There are some trees too. There are pull threw sites (both where each RV faces one direction and where they face either direction- the doors will face each other), back in sites & tent sites. They are water/electrical sites. Friendly people running the place, clean bath houses with GREAT showers, laundry & a place to do your dishes (if you need that). Wifi and a central shaded area with picnic tables & electrical outlets (I saw people on their computers in there), a TV & a large coffee urn. I had my own internet so I did not try the park's. I'd stay there again. - becida

This is camp in the desert. Some trash cans in area and a few porta potties. Dump station and water at Las Posas South but not at Tyson Wash. Be prepared to wait an hour or more to use dump station during Jan-Feb. Park wherever you want but most people try to space out sites by 50 yards or more due to generator noise. A lot of dust from off road vehicles. Ground is hard packed gravel, lava base and will support any size rig. Watch out for big dips in some roads. Easiest way to find a site is to use tow car to scout out location. Beautiful sunsets and starry skies--very peaceful. Tons of stuff to do in Quartszite in the prime season Jan-Feb-early March. $40.00 for 2 week stay-pay at BLM entrance station at each LTVA (long term visitor area). The further you go on Hwy 95 north or south of town the less crowded it is. Tyson wash is south of town about 3 miles. - clint77

To start with boondocking is not our choice in camping. We were with a group of 5 other rigs and got a very secluded spot about 3 miles off the highway over a rough dirt path. There were plenty of available camping sites for multiple rigs closer to the road but you would have to eat the dust from those of us that camped further away. BLM charges $40 for 1 to 14 days. We stayed 3 (which was more than enough). They only accept check or exact change in cash (my $100 bill was not acceptable). A credit card machine would make the whole check-in process much faster and more secure. The people working the desk were not friendly or helpful.
A generator is a necessity. Between the dust and our campfire smoke a shower is necessary every day which leads to packing up your rig and go waiting in a long line to dump and fill up with water every few days.
We can now cross "going to the Quartzsite RV Show" off our bucket list. We will not be back. - lyzzards

We stayed at La Posa South with a group of a dozen other RVs during the Quartzsite RV show. It's hard to decide on a numeric rating for this because it's just a giant patch of desert, not really a campground! Pros: lots of space to choose from, and even during the big RV show we had plenty of room around us and didn't feel crowded. Great views, great sunsets, and a short drive to town. 8 water filling stations means there's not much of a wait to fill your tank. Cons: lots of dust whenever someone drives by, the ground is all large gravel/rocks which was quite hard on our dogs' paws, and there are only two sewer dumps to handle the thousands of RVers during the RV show which means you could wait in line for hours to dump. We opted to "take it with us" to our next destination. It's $40 for up to two weeks, and we were there for 4 nights, thus our $10/night calculated rate. - LifeRebooted

This park is also known as River Bend. One is for tents and another is for RV's according to the owner. Water in the showers was warm and owner said she would tell her husband about it. FYI, no ATT service in the RV area. If you're Xfinity customer there was great free wifi available. Sites abut the highway so some road noise. In short nice park, but expected more for the price point charged. - hmthomas1

River access was nice, but WAY too much money for what you get! Also seemed to be more of a "full time" campground than a vacation spot. Has a lot of folks living here and it was very noisy. It's right on a busy road, so lots of traffic noise too. Also very crowded. - frenchman

Crowded, noisy. Way over priced for what you get. Friendly hosts, but the crowd seemed like a bunch of squatters looking for a free meal. Did like the river being close, but had a hard time enjoying it. - mountainsurfer

I just spent 11 days in the Kofa Wildlife Refuge and it's as beautiful as any high desert landscape you've ever seen. Granted, that type of landscape is a bit of an acquired taste, but once you embrace its beauty it sticks with you.
The Palm Canyon Road entrance is just north of mile marker 85 on the east side of Hwy 95, about 25 miles or so south of Quartzsite. The road in was a little washboardy but very manageable. They do see flash floods from time to time, and the road shows some evidence of rutting from previous floods, but it's wide enough to maneuver around the problem spots even in my 43' rig towing a car.
One issue is ground clearance: on the road in it's not an issue at all, but when they grade the road they leave a berm of gravelly debris along the sides which creates a curb that many if not most RV's and Travel Trailers would find difficult or impossible to get over. This unfortunately blocks access to what would otherwise be some pretty nice campsites for larger rigs, though smaller setups might be able to take advantage of them.
During my stay there were only a few other campers out there, mostly in travel trailers, so we all had thousands of yards between us to call our own. There was some very light day-use traffic and the occasional hunters / shooters whizzing by on quad-runners, but the dust they kick up dissipates very quickly due to the almost constant breeze.
It's beautiful, quiet and isolated... and expansive. The sunsets are magnificent and the hiking is as easy or as hard as you want it to be: The flat plains are perfect for long evening walks, and the mountains / canyons at day-use area at the foot of the mountains are a bit more challenging.
There's a park host for any questions you may have, but really you just find a spot and park. It's boondocking at its best, and it's absolutely free. It really doesn't get much easier than this. - Wryly Blithe

Kofa National Wildlife Refuge sits off Highways 10 and 95 near Quartzsite. Excellent dry camping - not another soul there when we were there - we drove in off Highway 10. I understand the entrance off Highway 95 is the more popular and probably more crowded. Lots of cacti in a high desert landscape. Be careful of where you walk your dogs because of the cacti. Vehicles with low clearance could have problems on the gravel/dirt roads but we were fine in our 24' class C. You can camp anywhere within 100' of any road. Wilderness at its best. - casasf

We were looking for a place to stay for the last 10 days of December and January. There are a lot of RV spaces available in Quartzsite this year, Pattie's had a great rate ($185 for the month), a superb rate compared to what some of the other places quoted us for a gravel pad with hook-ups. There are no restrooms or showers. The people are friendly, the sites are large enough, there is a laundromat and propane sales on site. Right across the street is the Quartzsite General Store and the Redbox. Bread, milk, fresh meat and movies are just a short walk away. The main sales area is about a 20 minute walk away. The Wi-Fi comes and goes at times, but is mostly there and it is strong enough to watch a video. As a place to park an RV with hook ups close to the Quartzsite "action"; Pattie's RV Park has what's needed. - becida

We stayed monthly. The first month was $225, then it went down to $175 with electricity at 19 cents kwh. The park is probably half long term and half transit. We had no complaints about the park except for the water pressure would vary from low to high. The Wi-Fi was excellent: never had a problem with reception or staying on. There is a laundry in the front of the park, but is also open to people outside the park. Everyone was nice from the manager to the residents, including long term folks. If we ever go back to Quartzsite, we would be open to staying here again. - rvgrandma

Stayed 5 months-reason my daily rate is low. Because park is located at edge of town you can more easily see mountains and desert. But because of location wind and dust is more of a problem. Dogs are welcome? This last winter, owners were asked to walk their pets outside of park. Which resulted in losing one beloved companion to a rattlesnake bite. Laundry and bath area is locked at 6:30pm. I was told I needed to finish and leave by 6:30 because area would be locked. RV site is driveway gravel not the small pea gravel that can be raked/leveled. This causes lumps under the patio mat. Dusty, not paved-wouldn't matter since there is nothing north of park but miles and miles of desert. This park's season rate was one of the least expensive. More parks are now offering 5-6 month special rates. Free WiFi--very limited use. Policy: use more than owner wants and he locks your computer. - Nakotah

One of the better parks in Quartzsite. Very large level spaces. No cable, wifi was slow. Good 50amp power. The folks running the place are very pround of the park & it shows! The even escort you to your site & make sure all is ok. Very easy on/off the the 10, but very quite for the most part. Will will be staying here again next Jan. - Tredguy

During 9 years of full-time RVing, we've never experienced such a hostile environment before. After less than a week, we wanted a refund and we were refused.
PROS: Conveniently located from I-10, Large sites, Quiet end of town. Clotheslines available for use.
CONS: WIFI limited to 250 MB a day (Owner monitors and "Denies Access" if you go over). Few 50 amp hookups. Dusty, speed limit isn't enforced.
We paid for 6 months upon arrival. Left (with notice) for 10 days. We returned to visit friends & found our site rented!
Bring Bottled water. Others don't recommend using the Park water.
Not allowed to exercise your generator. You have to unhook and go outside of the Park to take care of that. Running a Diesel engine to air-up and re-level, that's not allowed either!
Not at all pet friendly by a manager) he displays such hatred toward dogs, nothing can fix that.
Restrooms, 1 shower/1 toilet in Clubhouse. $2.00 to take a shower! Laundry: 2 washers, 3 dryers. All are locked during the hours of 6 pm - 8 am.
NOT ADA compliant. Refused admittance of a Service Animal. Requested a Service Animals' papers to copy and keep in the office for their records, both actions are illegal. Manager quotes ADA rules from a man at the "Sanitation Department." Puzzling since the Sanitation Department is in charge of Sewage and Garbage.
Work-campers seldom return (someone needs to look into the reason for that). Management manipulates facts to cover the reasons.
In conclusion: The Managers have gone out of their way to make this a miserable experience. What they do is targeted harassment. Unless you enjoy having someone stand in front of you, smiling while they lie to you repeatedly, or if you like walking on eggshells constantly because a manager likes to throw his weight around. We'd recommend you avoid this park for anything more than an overnight stop, until a change in management occurs. - Suzze99

Very nice park. Long, level and spacious sites. Easy in and out. Immaculate laundry facility. The managers on duty, (Arlene & Bob) were very pleasant and extremely accommodating and helpful. Would certainly stay here again and highly recommend this park. - Cucutz

We were guided into our site by an employee and we hit a water pipe. The manager's husband showed up and wanted to know who the (profanity) idiot was who did this. We had to pay for the repair of the pipe. After contacting the corp. office they decided to split the bill with us. As long as this man is working at the park we will not return. Other campers had problems with this employee as well. The rest of the staff was pleasant and friendly. The sites were clean, gravel, with a concrete pad, and the roads paved. The bathrooms, laundry and recreation room were modern and clean. Bring your own table as none are provided. - nevada campers

Nice staff and a very clean park. Probably the best in Quartzsite. Would be a 10 if sites were just a little wider. I would not hesitate to camp there again. This park is completely booked in advance in January and February. - Wyoming Wanderers
