Would have given this park a 10 if it wasn't right beside the interstate. That doesn't bother me, but some don't care for the noise. The staff is friendly and helpful. Guide to site. Many sites are right beside the Colorado River. The handful of full-time residents keep their rigs and spaces neat and clean. Spacious, all grass sites; several have a concrete patio. We definitely would stay here again. We camped at The Cove RV Resort (formerly Riviera RV Resort and Marina) in a Fifth Wheel.

Okay for overnight, would not stay any extended time as too much highway noise. It is right alongside I-10. We arrived after dark and the person on duty led us to our sight. Sight was not real level, and was a bit muddy from recent rain. Sites quite close together. Had to get a special cable box for the TV. We camped at The Cove RV Resort (formerly Riviera RV Resort and Marina) in a Motorhome.

Great location, on the river. Very clean, level sites, good power, good water, cable digital TV available. Escort to site with help setting up offered freely. Very safe location, very clean. I understand the new owners are going to make upgrades starting with the posts. Nice pool. We camped at The Cove RV Resort (formerly Riviera RV Resort and Marina) in a Motorhome.

This park is right next to interstate so there is some highway noise, but not too loud. Manager was very good and let us move after the first sight she assigned had something wrong with the electric and kept tripping our surge protector. Nice wide paved roads with ample room in each sight. Advertised wifi, but was so weak and slow I went to Mcdonalds everyday to keep up. Picked this park because the map on their sight showed a good sized grass of leash dog area. When we got there, the dog area was out on a peninsula and a quarter of the size the map showed. live and learn. They have a large area that would make a great dog park by the basketball courts, but it is just being wasted. Park would be a 9 or 10 if the dog park was there, bigger, and the wifi worked. We camped at The Cove RV Resort (formerly Riviera RV Resort and Marina) in a Motorhome.

We've been here a few times and will go back. We like that it's freeway close, but it's REALLY freeway close. Some nights it was hard to sleep with all the loud motorcycles and trucks so close. It's not fancy at all, your basic campground. Quite a few people come for the summer, so a lot of camaraderie among them.

We do really like that they have a GREAT dog run, and are very dog friendly and easy going. We could walk our lab to the nearby beach and she could be off leash chasing the ball into the water for hours.

They have rules and enforce the important ones when necessary, but also use common sense, which is great. Trash was overflowing Monday when we left and grass needed to be mowed, though we did check in an hour early, and they came later to mow, wish they had mowed a little sooner. (No charge for the hour early, which was appreciated by us.)

One hint - The lake is low almost every Friday, so don't count on launching a boat or Jetski on a Friday. By Saturday it's all good. (This is not controlled by the Riveria, just how the river rights go.) Oh, and extra long spots in the pull thrus! Wow!! We camped at The Cove RV Resort (formerly Riviera RV Resort and Marina) in a Motorhome.

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 The Cove RV Resort (formerly Riviera RV Resort and Marina) 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 The Cove RV Resort (formerly Riviera RV Resort and Marina) 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 The Cove RV Resort (formerly Riviera RV Resort and Marina) 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 The Cove RV Resort (formerly Riviera RV Resort and Marina) 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 The Cove RV Resort (formerly Riviera RV Resort and Marina) 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 The Cove RV Resort (formerly Riviera RV Resort and Marina) 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 The Cove RV Resort (formerly Riviera RV Resort and Marina) in a Motorhome.
