This is an excellent park with huge spaces and a great park to roam with the dogs. The views are spectacular; try to get a spot on the outer rim. The river runs alongside the park. It is super quiet, too. The wi-fi is usually awful -- strong enough all over but hit and miss because too many people are using it at the same time. We have stayed at Mayflower many times. It is a frequent hub for snowbirders who stay for months at a time. There is a discount for a weekly stay and an enormous discount for monthly stays. There are no sewer hookups but the county has a crew of four (!) come by 3 times a week to pump your RV tanks. We camped at Mayflower County Park in a Travel Trailer.

Thank you for taking the time to post your review of our campground! Mayflower Park is operated by RivCoParks and our team of staff and volunteers do their best to make your experience a good one. Wanted to let you know that we are currently making some big improvements to Mayflower Park, we are improving the boat launch, adding a new restroom and shower facility and replacing our water well. Hope to see you again soon.

Rate reflects Passport America. Main interior road is paved, roads to sites are grass/dirt, sites are narrow, short and unlevel grass. Park was all but empty, so our overnight in and out was not a problem. Wide open, clean, well maintained campground, adjacent to Colorado River. Utilities worked; no sewer at site - dump station available. Women's toilets were not clean in early morning, but when we checked out, office claimed they had been cleaned just after we attempted to use them. Good park if you want to boat on the river. We would stay again. We camped at Mayflower County Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Rate reflects Passport America Discount. We stayed when the park was not very full. If you came here during their peak season sites would be very close together. Campground is on a grassy field and fairly easy to level. Site were not long enough to leave the truck / trailer attached. This was okay for a one night stopover, but would not be my first choice for a longer stay. Verizon, AT&Tm and Sprint all had very weak coverage for data and phone at this park. We camped at Mayflower County Park in a Fifth Wheel.

The rate is for a primitive site. We love to find places like this a few miles off the interstate. Very quiet at night. No generators allowed, we love that concept. Airplane noise as of 6:30 in the morning. Most dry camping sites are for smaller RVs except for #1 and #10, which are easy to back in to. However, watch out for some bent trees when making your turns inside the park. There was a picnic table, but no fire pit. Site was about level. Our Verizon worked well. Wi-Fi is offered, but we didn't try. We'll bookmark this park for an overnight stay when traveling again in this area. We camped at Mayflower County Park in a Fifth Wheel.

End site with great views. All grass camp area. Weekly and monthly rates excellent. Bumpy interior roads. Passably clean restrooms. Odd dump station, honey wagon weekly. Next year we'll stay for a month. We camped at Mayflower County Park in a Motorhome.

Level grass sites, try to avoid the sprinklers. Very quite and serene. Worth the drive off the 10 for an overnight. Office was closed but a lady gave us a Tengo free wifi coupon. We hooked up to power only. Would stay here again We camped at Mayflower County Park in a Travel Trailer.

We are traveling cross country in a large Motorhome and trying to economize using Passport America parks. We stopped at Hidden Beaches RV Park. It was well advertised. It was $22 a night with the PA discount, but had limited 50 amp service and didn't seem very appealing. We decided to try our luck just down the same street at the state park. They don't honor PA discounts after September 30th, but it was well worth the extra $8.00. The park is hosted by friendly volunteers. It was almost empty, so we were able to pull in an the back end of the park with an unobstructed view of the mountains and Colorado River. It was peaceful and beautiful. A great spot to sit in the sun and read or fly your RC plane. Not sure what it would be like in the summer, but November was spectacular. There is a community dump site as you leave, but power and water were ample. Wi-FI was a free code that was weak, but with so much beauty, who wants to be on the computer? If you want a rustic getaway for a little more money, this fits the bill! We camped at Mayflower County Park in a Motorhome.

This is a great place to camp. The views are incredible, the entire park is full of trees and somewhat-dead but often-watered lawn (this is in the desert), and it's a wonderful place to go with kids and dogs. Right outside of the park you can take your dogs off-leash to run. We love this park and have discovered that it's even better in the fall as there aren't many people there. In the winter, it's packed with snowbirders who are there for months at a time. While there are no septic hookups, you can pay extra to have your tank pumped 3x a week during weekdays only, or haul it to the septic hookup in the park to empty your tank. Wi-Fi is so-so here; better if you are near the office, but views are better at the opposite end. We camped at Mayflower County Park in a Travel Trailer.

Hot!!! It got to 114 the day we arrived, but was 93 by the time we arrived. Friendly staff, good Wi-Fi, right on the Colorado River. Good power, restrooms so so but clean. Best not to park in the first row as the sprinklers ran all night and passing through the tree branches, plastered our tow vehicle with a sticky, oily residue that took awhile to clear. Overall, a pleasant stay. We camped at Mayflower County Park in a Fifth Wheel.

The rate of 12.50/day reflects the Passport America discount. Sites are spacious but parking is on grass. Driveways are just sand and grass. Some driveways are difficult to get through because of loose sand. The water supply is really gross, as in nothing I could bear to taste. The park is too far from cell towers for reliable service, at least on my Sprint cell. Verizon air card service was weak. The good: the park is in a scenic location on the Colorado River and is a peaceful setting for a relaxing stay. We camped at Mayflower County Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Sunday, April 14 – Mayflower Country Park, Blythe, CA: This is right over the state line from AZ interstate 10 heading west. It cost us $12 with Passport America, but they don’t honor it during the winter months when this park is full. We had a half shade site with water and electric. This park sits on the Colorado River, but it is too dangerous to swim in it and warnings are posted. Check in was efficient and the guy was really nice and informative. There are no reservations; it’s a first come first serve park. Picnic areas are in the park and the bath house serves both those camping and those using the park for the day. The bath house needs to be updated. It is old, used, but it was clean. There is RV storage in the park, lawn bowling, and three loops for camping. We were allowed to pick our own site. On a Sunday night in April less than a third of the sites were taken. Fine for an overnight! We camped at Mayflower County Park in a Motorhome.

The rate reflects the monthly fee of $275 which includes electricity, water, thrice weekly honey wagon service, free Wi-Fi (much improved), and limited antenna TV. This is definitely not resort-style living, but a charming park for snow birders seeking value, pet-friendly surroundings, friendly neighbors, helpful staff, loose rules, some group activities (lawn bowling, potlucks, ice cream socials)and spectacular sunsets. It gets rather crowded and cramped in January with folks staying here rather than nearby Quartzsite, Arizona, but thins out nicely as activities wind down there. We stayed here 6 weeks last winter and 3 months this winter. We camped at Mayflower County Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Super quiet, good-sized spots, very popular winter destination for snowbirds. Beautiful sunsets. Lovely views. Some permanent RVs in one part of the campground. Large campground. Very pet friendly. Many places to walk dogs off leash right outside of the campground. This place literally shuts down around 7 p.m. - it's very quiet all night. We've camped here before and will return. We camped at Mayflower County Park in a Travel Trailer.

I've got to give them credit for "trying". Latest bond issue improved the entry area, maintenance & administration buildings. Gate keeper on the way out (we came in too late to see them the night before) informed us that another bond issue was scheduled to upgrade the rest room/showers which appeared VERY basic from the outside. Great access to the Colorado River but actual sites are simply quasi laid out over sand/dirt/grass. Would probably give it another shot to see how that other bond issue affected the overall layout. We camped at Mayflower County Park in a Motorhome.

Our overnight stay was $22 plus $1 for each dog. It has a nice looking brick pavers at the entry road with nice looking masonry buildings for the administration functions. The actual camping area is more rustic though. It consists of gravel roads with a fair amount of grass areas throughout the campground. We pulled in here for an overnight stay and rather liked the place. It has quite a few tall trees scattered throughout. There is a boat launch ramp down into the Colorado River. At this point the river almost looks like a wide canal with swiftly flowing current. There is water and 30 amp electric but no drains at the sites. The high mineral content of the water makes it less than desirable for drinking. Bottled drinking water is suggested. The sites are not well defined as to where you should park. The hookups are located at the front of the site as you pull in. While we were there a tank truck came around to pump out RV holding tanks. This is I believe a service several times a week for the monthly snowbirds during the winter season. We dumped on the way out, but there was overflow water sitting in the concrete basin surrounding the 4 inch drop inlet at the dump station. This campground is in a quiet location. We would camp here again. We camped at Mayflower County Park in a Motorhome.
