The price quoted is with a PA discount. I stopped twice, both coming and going and noticed that the prices varied. The charge (w/PA) in the pull-thru area which is water and electric only, was $21.00, but the full-hookup back-in was only $18.00. Not sure if it was a mistake or if they charge more for a pull-thru. On the river with nice tables and benches along the shoreline. Dogs are welcome here and there are mature trees that offer shade in most of the sites. If the road into the park were not so rough, I wouldn't question staying here again. We camped at Hidden Beaches River Resort in a Motorhome.

We were supposed to stay 3 nights at Hidden Beach Resort. We left after two nights. The camp ground sites available for non- permanent campers were pretty bad. We spent thirty minutes trying to decide which one was the less terrible. We wanted full hook up so staying right by the river was not an option as those sites do not have sewer. We picked one that had decent shade and grass. We had a nice view of an old permanent trailer full of spider webs. The other view was old tarps covering yet another semi-permanent camper. The sewer and water hook up is in the middle of two sites, meaning that since all the sites to the left were taken, we were stuck with using a very long extension for both sewer and water, going through our site. Lucky us, there is an awesome Kmart in Blythe and we didn't have to buy anything in their over priced little store (but that is understandable, these stores are just made for emergencies).

Besides the lame sites, the lame views, there is just nothing to do for kids at all! The water level of the river was too high so there is no way for them to go near the water. The beach is hidden...we didn't find it.

If you have no kiddos, take a front site with the river and enjoy the calm. If you have kids, keep driving to the real beaches, Blythe is a boring farming town with not even a little park for kids to play. The Resort is not fitted for young families. There are no picnic tables, no fire pits.

The staff was courteous. The maintenance guys came right away to trim a branch for us, they were young men doing service for their church and helping out.

Hidden Beaches, we didn't enjoy playing hide and seek the fun! We camped at Hidden Beaches River Resort in a Travel Trailer.

Stayed here one night. Was promised a pull-through site and they only had 1 left (Site #1) The grass was wet and a huge pool of water formed under the rear wheels of my car and under both axles of my travel trailer, so stepping in and out of the trailer was very tricky. This RV park is way off the beaten path (I-10). I was uncertain if I was going to be able to pull my trailer out of the water in the morning!

No cable, weak WiFi except near office. No sewer in pull thru sites but a truck comes 2x a week to empty tanks. Pull thru and riverfront sites fairly spacious. Pretty setting on the Colorado River. Riverfront sites have a lovely terrace w/ picnic table. Add'l picnic tables along riverfront. A lot of full time residents. We camped at Hidden Beaches River Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

NOT BIG RIG FRIENDLY. Definitely have to unhook and can't make all the turns easily within the park. Most are impossible with a 40'. I think we are on the riverfront but a fence blocks the view. Really out of the way, not sure I'd stay here again. Lot of permanent "structures" of one sort or another. I wouldn't stay here again. We camped at Hidden Beaches River Resort in a Motorhome.

Rate reflects a Passport America discount. The sites along the river do not have sewer hookups, but the others do. Most sites have at least some shade which can be important in Blythe, and there are supplies available in the small store in the office. The dog enjoyed having grass under her feet again after weeks in the desert. And I appreciated the shade and quiet. It's not fancy, but will probably stay here again when in the area.

Rate is first night PA and then 2nd night was $26. We chose a river frontage site that had no sewage hookup, although the pull through sites back from the river were full hookups and the PA rate for these was $16. We had some to'ing and fro'ing to get set up. Needed to use the dump station on arrival but it was locked, so we had to wait for the maintenance man to unlock it. Had to go back to the office to get bathroom codes as not given these on checkin. And for the two days we stayed here, was no internet but we were told "it was being fixed." The laundry machines needed cleaning but the restrooms were clean (old fittings). The 6 reflects the great view overlooking the Colorado River. We'd stay here again.

The young lady that helped us in the store seemed very nice. I did have an issue with an older white haired gentleman with a British accent that was walking around taking pictures of things. I tried to speak to him and he stated he was the manager. I asked him what he was doing and he said in a very rude tone "I'm doing my job!" I asked him again. He stated that if anyone leaves their boat on the dock he sites them and also will tow anyone that doesn't have a pass. I understand doing a job but, no need to be rude to someone who is just inquisitive. After that, I just walked away. I saw him the next afternoon standing at the top of the dock and he was harassing everyone that was coming up the stairs from the dock. He even got into a dispute with a few of them. I travel to a lot of different camp sites all around the west coast and this individual takes the prize for "Horrible Park Manager" Award. What happened to the customers always right? In his case, the customer shouldnt be in his park. We camped at Hidden Beaches River Resort in a Travel Trailer.

Loved this place!! We stayed here several months while my husband was on a power line job in area. We had a river front sight which was beautiful to wake up to every morning. This place was huge with boat launch on sight. Loved the manager here; accommodating and friendly. Great monthly rate for what you get. Would stay again !!

We stayed overnight while traveling west so it was fine for one night only but I would not stay longer. No sewer access and no TV reception even with an antenna was a negative. It is a very quiet campground (in January) being on the river, and five miles from the highway. We had a spot on grass backing up to the river, but very close to other RVs. So close you could hear the people in the next motorhome. Not much room to park your car either. Most of the RVs there were permanent summer residents that were not being used, just parked. The Passport America discount does not apply on weekends, so arriving on Friday was full price, and not worth it. I imagine the summer months would be really busy and noisy with permanent residents. We camped at Hidden Beaches River Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

We arrived in the early afternoon. Half of our camp site was muddy. The caretaker had just watered the grass three hours earlier. The pull through sites are very wide. We were able to move away from the mud. The listing claims there is sewer hook ups, not true. There are dump stations. They are not very clean or easy to use. The camp is very quiet and remote. I'm not sure the site is worth the $33 they charge. I most likely will not stay here again. We camped at Hidden Beaches River Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

Quiet campground, some sites are available for those of us who are passing through, but most sites are permanent residents. Store and outdoor restaurant serving bar food and beer. Friendly staff. This is a fish camp, but in October the river was just about completely dried up. We would stay again, but just overnight using Passport America.

Very nice well-cared for park with many permanent residents. Being on the river is oriented to boaters and it has its own boat ramp. It is shady with lots of trees. We parked in a pull-through on well-kept lawn. The sites along the river have great views, but look cramped. We had a nice time sitting along the river eating ice cream sandwiches purchased from the general store. We'd stay here again. We camped at Hidden Beaches River Resort in a Travel Trailer.

We stopped here passing though. The sites were level. The restrooms were fairly clean, but older and could of used some added maintenance. There were several park homes with permanent residents. The roads were narrow, but no overhanging branches/wires. It was an easy on/off I-10. We might (??) stay here again, but only for a day, not extended.

The site we had by the river had a nice view. It goes downhill from there. The 2 women I talked to in the office were friendly as was the guy early in the morning turning on sprinklers. This park is basically a trailer park with a few RV sites. The long term residents do as they want and don't adhere to the rules. My wife picked up bread (?) pieces from our site when we arrived and the next morning we were greeted with some sort of chips thrown out. We also had dog crap in our site the morning we left. The PA price started at $21, ended up $28 ($32.95 if we added the Wi-Fi) with no sewer hookup. They did give us one day free because we are seniors (had to ask about it after trying to sign on after hours). The "Beer Garden" is very unfriendly as are the full timers here. I am sure we will stay at the county park next time, same amenities and free Wi-Fi. We camped at Hidden Beaches River Resort in a Fifth Wheel.
