Park was dirty, dusty with undrinkable water hook ups. Management won't spend any money to upgrade this park. They cater to the summer people, not the snowbirds. Nothing here to keep people returning except for an overnight stay. Internet is off and on. We camped at Big River RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

This is an older, not very attractive, RV park which consists of dead grass, dirt, and gravel roads. The smell of sewage permeates many areas of the park. Some of the riverside sites are really nice, but most of them and many of the interior sites are rented by people who leave their RV there all year and mostly come to the park on the weekends and in the summer. Many of these RVs are old, in poor repair, and have unsightly storage underneath. The gravel roads create a lot of dust, especially when the full-year renters drive their golf carts, ATVs, and jeeps in and out many times a day. There seems to be an effort to keep the park clean, but the infrastructure does not appear to have been updated in a long time. The park managers are sometimes abrupt and often rude when a problem is brought to their attention. There appears to be a different set of rules for the full-year residents than for others, particularly pertaining to leashing and picking up after pets and quiet hours. On the positive side, we met many friendly people who were spending the winter in the park. The monthly rate does not include electricity, which ran us about $70. WiFi is included in the monthly rate, although it is not always reliable. We would probably not return to this park other than for an occasional overnighter to visit friends. We camped at Big River RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

This park at first glance was disappointing in comparison to the website, but we had a great time and the place grew on you. I would come back. The sites were dead grass and dirt, not real level, and we needed an extension on our hose to get to the water hook up. However, on the positive side, the sites are large (both in length and width) and everything worked including the WIFI which is free. I feel the daily and weekly prices are high considering you don’t get a swimming pool or other fancy amenities like some parks at the same price; however, you are right on the Colorado River which probably would be nice in the warmer weather for water sports. What I did like about the park was the friendly people and the “no rule” atmosphere – everything was casual. The park is very quiet and gated for security. There is no road or train noise, just the sound of birds and nature. The restaurants in town are fun. They had plenty of washers and dryers and even clothes lines to hang your clothes out. There was a problem with a sewer smell in several areas. It seemed like management took care of it before we left. The restrooms were clean. We camped at Big River RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Excellent park on the CA side of the Colorado River just 5 miles from Parker, AZ and plentiful shopping. Friendly staff. Grassy sites. Very quiet park with no road noise. Some water craft but in the summer mostly, pretty quiet now that the water level is down. Like it enough that I paid $270 for a months stay (electricity is extra, about $0.12 per KWH). Owner would allow me to leave for a trip away and return to continue my stay without further charge (at least this time of year, returning in Feb). Grounds are well kept. Facilities are clean and pleasant. Hardly any noxious bugs and there is interesting wildlife wandering through the park occasionally. Very nice park, enjoying my stay very much. Excellent weather this time of year. We camped at Big River RV Park in a Motorhome.
