Very old facilities but ok. Had a problem hooking up to electric outlet, very loose. Not much of a town...miles from everything except few local stores. Also had a problem with owners. Would not stay there again. We camped at Desert Gem RV Park in a Motorhome.

My experience differs from info on this site. WiFi costs "$1 per day, $4 per week, $10 per month"; my site had 30/20 amps but not 50. Restrooms and showers were very clean. Campsites about as level as I've ever found. I stopped here for a night and I would return. We camped at Desert Gem RV Park in a Motorhome.

As stated before, pull-throughs are tight for big rigs. All around tight spaces for big rigs, but doable. Nice spot to veg after a week on the desert at the Q. Price is with a Passport America discount, with tax, $16.25 night. We camped at Desert Gem RV Park in a Motorhome.

Pull throughs are long and narrow. New owners seem to be cleaning and maintaining the park. Lack of over-the-air or cable TV is a negative. Court is small and friendly. Laundry room is clean, and the units work. The $105 per week including the adequate WiFi is a fair price for the facilities. Biggest plus is that you can ride your quad from the gate in any direction and immediately be on many challenging mountain trails (unmarked) with grand views and many mines to look at. Only a small amount of noise from the highway and the trains. I would stay here again; it was fun. We camped at Desert Gem RV Park in a Travel Trailer.

Good park for the money. Great walking trails in the desert. The manager allowed us to pick fruit while we were here. Our Verizon internet works well here. We camped at Desert Gem RV Park in a Travel Trailer.

We spent one night here and found the park to be very friendly and well maintained. Owner was extremely helpful. Plenty of room for easy maneuvering. Wi-Fi was excellent and a bargain at a cost of only $1.00 per day. Will return to this little park again. We camped at Desert Gem RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

An excellent smaller park. Many shade trees and also many citrus trees for campers to pick their own oranges, grapefruit and more. Owner is very helpful and easy to get along with. Fellow snowbird campers very friendly. Good musicians and planned activities. Clean buildings and well maintained grounds. This park rates five stars with us! We camped at Desert Gem RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

The owner seems friendly, But the Wi-Fi is terrible, and the water pressure is set so low that the washing machines don't even fill up! The price is fair IF the problems are fixed, but I recommend you pass for now. Barking dogs are also a problem. Be careful of the business owners in Salome! Some are real rip off artists. We camped at Desert Gem RV Park in a Motorhome.

A very nice little park, beautiful desert to walk, bike or take your dog, very pleasant owners, nice clean and well kept. It is not a big RV resort, but the price of 175.00 per month is very well worth it. A good base camp to explore Arizona, with several pull through sites for big rigs, lot of activities, weekly card games, potlucks, Halloween, Christmas and New Years activities. It is just an all around pleasant place. We camped at Desert Gem RV Park in a Motorhome.

Desert Gem has a new owner and he is improving the park. This is a smaller park and has a special charm. Happy Camper and Passport America members are accepted, and they have a cash discount that is substantial, 50%. Good clean restrooms and showers. Quiet and secure. Adult park. We camped at Desert Gem RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Old park, only one shower and one toilet for women, same for men. Lots of older permanent rigs. Friendly folks, frequent organized meals, games, events. Tight spaces. No telephone available. Cell signal poor. They have some fenced spaces for some of their permanent residents with ever present barking dogs. Gorgeous desert surroundings. We camped at Desert Gem RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.
