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. We camped at 88 Shades RV Park in a Motorhome.

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. We camped at 88 Shades RV Park in a Motorhome.

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. We camped at 88 Shades RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Just an overnight stay in August. Office was closed but owner came to help us. There are some trees, but basically AZ desert "landscaping". Most were long-term (with few if any people in August). Convenient pull-thru with some bushes. Nice ot have cable TV - We camped at 88 Shades RV Park in a Travel Trailer.

Tips for other Campers:

Try for a site away from I-10. Off-season there's plenty of choices, probably would be much more difficult in winter, so plan ahead.

We camped here in a 42 foot motorhome with a toad. The park was very clean and the sites were large. Staff was very accommocating and passionate about their park. We were thrilled that they had great wifi and cable TV which we had not had for about a month during our travels at other parks. The price as reasonable. When walking my dog throughout the park I found a lot of fruit trees by the recreation center and later peaked in there to find recently remodeled bathrooms and nice hot tub!

Really nice way-station between LA and Tucson. The staff was extremely attentive and receptive. Even though in a very rustic, rural area in the wild west, the park is more than adequate for a comfortable stay and the price is right. Several pull-through spaces accommodated our 26 foot motorhome with a toad (pickup). The staff indicated that they were going to plant some shade trees that will improve the overall aesthetics of the park overall. Sure beat sleeping in the hot desert or running the generator all night. Visited the site both May and June of 2015. We camped at 88 Shades RV Park in a Motorhome.

Quartzsite is a unique desert community. Colorful and of the old west. Some year a round eateries, adequate gas station choices and loads of opportunity to explore the desert.

Park is mostly permanent residents, many old-time travel trailers (50s and 60s) so kind of a blast-from-the-past to walk around. Large level pull-through sites for overnighters, which are further away from I-10, so not much highway noise. Typical one-piece molded stall showers were clean and had lots of hot water. Friendly residents and management. We will stay here again. We camped at 88 Shades RV Park in a Travel Trailer.

This is an older park. They call the streets paved, but actually there are more chuckholes than pavement. Sites are gravel. Though we were backed up so close to the rig in back you could barely walk between them, there was plenty of room side by side. They provided someone to help with backing in. The section where we stayed was mostly long-term snow birders who were friendly during the week we stayed in Quartzsite. Staff was efficient and courteous. My husband called them "mother hens." He was petting a neighbor's dog before we pulled out, and it scratched his arms badly until they bled. The owner washed the scratches off, but the bleeding continued. He went into the office on our way out to tell them we were leaving, and the ladies insisted on washing the scratches again, putting antibiotic cream on them and then bandaging his arms. The laundry room was clean, but most of the machines had out of order signs on them, though another resident might have put the signs up to reserve enough washers for himself. He came in, filled all the "out of order" machines with his wash, and they suddenly worked. We camped at 88 Shades RV Park in a Travel Trailer.

We stayed here at their busiest time and so we didn't have the best spot, but it was fine for our 4 days there. I couldn't get the Wi-Fi to work, but it is possible that the problem may have been with my computer, and we were really too busy to bother with it. The facilities were all fine and well maintained, especially the clubhouse and jacuzzi. Laundry was not expensive, but many machines were out of order. We thought that for the low price, we got a lot of bang for our bucks. We camped at 88 Shades RV Park in a Motorhome.

Par for Quartzsite. Many parks close the office at noon post season. This one opens from 3 to 6 for the overnighters. Verizon LTE works well so didn't bother with parks Wi-Fi. We had two iPhones, an iPad, a MacBook and a Roku streaming device. All worked well on our Verizon Jet Pack. Great for an overnight. Would stay here during the big show in January if we decide to do that. We camped at 88 Shades RV Park in a Motorhome.

Typical Quartzite Park. Dirt. Overnight pull throughs were long so I did not have to disconnect. Wi-Fi available, Verizon Card strong. Noise from Hwy 10 noticeable at night. Full timers dogs tied up outside during daytime so it was noisy walking your own dogs. Close to freeway exits for an OK over night stop, About a mile from Worlds Biggest Swap Meet.

Gravel pull-through site with easy electric, sewer and water connections. Outstanding cactus garden. Very pet friendly park with good pet trail in wash. Very friendly office. Very good Wi-Fi but park was fairly quiet before the busy season. We camped at 88 Shades RV Park in a Motorhome.

We only stayed one night and thought this was a nice little park (can't expect too much when price is so reasonable) liked it much better than last place we stayed in Quartzsite. We would definitely stay here again and for a longer period. We camped at 88 Shades RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

On par with most parks in Quartzsite. We had a nice gravel pull through for the nite. Restrooms are old but well maintained. Car wash & oil change pit on site- nice. Wi-Fi was free & ours rocked. We would stay here over nite again some time. We camped at 88 Shades RV Park in a Motorhome.
