This is a good place for a stop over, especially if length of space is important. We have a 37' fifth wheel, and no problem pulling into a pull through with truck parked in front, plenty of room left. No concrete pads, but there is somewhat of lawn.
Located on the Colorado River with boat ramp, am sure it could get busy here during summer, weekends and holidays-but employees seem friendly and helpful. Many long term residents scattered throughout park.
Did not use tv, required special equipment from office, but the wifi worked very well and was included in price.
We were in section H-spot 09, which definitely picked up noise from freeway, but did not bother us-we were so tired! There are other pull-thrus on the other end of park which might be good if you are sensitive to road noise.
Have stayed here many times on our way to/from Tucson, and will continue to do so (as long as it stays the way it is now), as it is easy on/off right by the Blythe Agriculture Inspection Station. Although road is a little rough after new off ramp when going west-no fault of the park, but thought I would mention it for information only. We camped at Riviera RV Resort and Marina (Former KOA) in a Fifth Wheel.

Tips for other Campers:

Town with many restaurants and amenities to the west a couple of miles.
Office at park has store with a good selection of items.
Rough road after new off ramp when traveling towards the west before you reach rv park.
Cheap gas east of Blythe at Texaco in Ehrenberg, Arizona.

We got there late--after closing - but someone met us at the front and led us to our campsite. Site was pretty, on grass and very large. Park is located on the Colorado River. We walked down to the water and waded in--beautiful, clear river! We camped at Riviera RV Resort and Marina (Former KOA) in a Motorhome.

We stayed here one night while passing through. Liked it so well we stayed another night on our return trip. Very convenient on and off I 10.
Price was for a large pull through site will full hookups. As others have mention, the digital cable box is a nuisance, but works fine. Dated, but well maintained. Staff was very nice and friendly.
Will definitely stay here again when passing through. Great location on the Colorado River!! We camped at Riviera RV Resort and Marina (Former KOA) in a Fifth Wheel.

This park is on the Colorado river which is a perfect location for boaters, jet skiers, etc.. At 45.00 a day, I expected the grounds and restroom/shower area to be clean. Cigarette butts were all over our camp site and the restrooms were in need of cleaning, repair and updating. In reading the park rules, they are very strict about 10:00 PM quiet time although our neighbors across the road partied hardy until 11:30PM. Be sure to consult your Good Sam book for directions as the city changed the street name and many RV'ers get lost using their GPS. Helpful folks in the office. They will hook up a cable box for you, otherwise there is no TV reception. We camped at Riviera RV Resort and Marina (Former KOA) in a Fifth Wheel.

Stayed here one night passing through on I-10. Used to be a KOA 'Resort' but now a Good Sam Park with some age, but well run. Right on Colorado River. We agree with review from Nov. 2015. Uses a non-digital cable system that requires a converter box that can be mounted outside at the cable hookup place - takes some time to get it working. Lots of stored RVs, but active sites were level. Showers were older but the water flow very high and plenty of it - great shower. Nice hostess and her husband. Cold and windy our night there - so no info on activities. We camped at Riviera RV Resort and Marina (Former KOA) in a Motorhome.

We had a large pull through which accommodated our 36 foot fifth wheel and truck. Site was level with some grass and dirt. Nice fenced dog park in area away from main Park. Good walking along River. Verizon service was good. No cable available as office was closed. Per sign on door cable available only during office hours. We were able to pick up some channels with antenna.

Right next door to the interstate. Probably a good resort at one time but in need of some TLC. Easy Check in and taken to site which was in an open grassy lot with no shade and very unlevel with very old hook ups. Electric box next to us had back open with exposed wires and weeds growing in it. Place had plenty of empty sites with shade and yet we get put in open field with 105 degree temperature. Bathrooms and showers filthy dirty in need of a good cleaning. Only positive I found was cable and Wi-Fi. I would not recommend this place; find the next one.

Stayed here for 2 nights. Nice campground with both back in and pull-through sites. Check-in was easy and quick then we were guided to our site. Our site was all grass and level. As it was over 100 degrees we used their inviting and extremely clean pool. Park was very clean and fairly quiet. It is near the interstate but it is more like white noise than traffic noise. Campground is right on the Colorado River with an extremely large boat ramp. A few long term campers but their sites were clean and uncluttered. We camped at Riviera RV Resort and Marina (Former KOA) in a Travel Trailer.

Located right off the freeway which was great. This campground is located directly on the Colorado River. Beautiful surroundings. Pool, boat rental, pet play area which was huge and grassy. Sites are grass and a little uneven but well maintained. The roads are paved. We were escorted to our pull thru site after a quick check in. WiFi was one of the better I've found. We would stay here again. We camped at Riviera RV Resort and Marina (Former KOA) in a Motorhome.

Stayed 1 night. Lovely grass sites with a picnic table. Quiet. Washrooms are somewhat dated but they are clean. Campground is located next to the river. Used to be affiliated with KOA, but is now is with Good Sam's. We would stay here again. We camped at Riviera RV Resort and Marina (Former KOA) in a Fifth Wheel.

They were running a "stay three nights, pay for two when I visited". The camp was clean, the staff very polite and the grass sites were very close to level. It's a great location right on the Colorado river with close freeway access. I'd stay here again. We camped at Riviera RV Resort and Marina (Former KOA) in a Motorhome.

Have breakfast at the Courtesy Coffee Shop in Blythe. It's like stepping back into 70's architecture. The food is good too!

Speedy check-in and help was offered to back up into the camp site. Paved roads and level, grassy, no shade sites. A few sites available next to the river. Situated 100 yards south of the 10, unfortunately. Highway sound hearable all day and especially at night when the wind dies down. Campground, pool, hot tub and restrooms are clean. Small store on campground with some food items, drinks and RV spare parts. For watching TV, you get a free digital box during your stay. Channels are of perfect quality!

The free WiFi reception is good. Uninterrupted signal and fair speed. We camped at Riviera RV Resort and Marina (Former KOA) in a Fifth Wheel.

Great overnight spot between Phoenix & LA. Nice long level pull-thru sites with grass. Good turning radius throughout park. Good 50 amps. Personnel was friendly and park is clean. Some freeway noise. We camped at Riviera RV Resort and Marina (Former KOA) in a Motorhome.

Good Sam rate. Nice friendly check-in. Led to site. Grass site not level, but was an easy adjustment with wheel shims. 50 amp didn't work so used the site's pedestal next to me to hook up, as it was over 100*F. Wi-Fi was strong and solid. Exiting was confusing as there was no signage and they have tire spike strips that aren't functional. You actually drive over them to exit! We felt a bit pricey for the age and overall looks of the park. Doubtful we would stay again, but maybe. We camped at Riviera RV Resort and Marina (Former KOA) in a Fifth Wheel.

Not sure if this rate includes a discount. Check in person did not mention. Staff very friendly. Very hot Saturday so not real crowded park. Bathrooms clean. Strong shower and good hot water. Great pool area. Perfect temperature! Nice beach on the river. WiFi was one of the strongest we have had. Lots of cable TV offerings. Grassy sites but level. It looks like it could be tight if the park got full. We camped at Riviera RV Resort and Marina (Former KOA) in a Motorhome.
