The park is on the Colorado River and near off-road riding. The park is very very dusty. The place is in bad need of a makeover. It is old and looks very worn. The gifts for attending the sales presentation had so many requirements attached that they turned out to be worthless. There are lots of folks that stay for a long time and their sites look trashy. We camped at Emerald Cove Resort in a Motorhome.
Stay somewhere else unless you are there just for the water access.

Nice park to spend some time in. Lots of activities for every interest. Pools are nice and clean. Bar and daily lunch specials on site. Friendly staff and on the river. We camped at Emerald Cove Resort in a Travel Trailer.
BarBQ on site. Close to Parker, AZ for shopping. Casino nearby has movie theater for reasonable rates. Be sure to visit the Desert Bar!

Our second time here, we had site #78 and we loved it! This place is big and you are packed in fairly close but everyone is so friendly. I know it's been said before but the bar/snack bar has such great deals and Yes, that includes their daily Happy 3 hours when prices of beer are unbelievable. Regular prices aren't bad either. Anyways, good water pressure, mostly 30 amp electrical and sewer. If you want River front here, you'll have to join CRA but as noted. Our site was great. We had good Verizon coverage and since we were close to the Club house, we got free WiFi too, other wise they have cable which requires a rental of adapter(modem). We will return!

Crossroads Cafe in Parker! For Mexican take out- Roberto's was good. Blue Water Casino not too far away was Fun and the last weekend we were there, a Desert Race was going on. Definitely do the Happy Hour at the Resort....3.00 for a 64 oz pitcher!!!! Pool's and Spa plus nice seating area..

Nice park on the Colorado River. The restaurant food was cheap and good. There are lots of activities. Spaces were tight and not all had picnic tables. River access is available. Free WiFi in Club House but if you park nearby and use a repeater you might get it at your site. We camped at Emerald Cove Resort in a Motorhome.
The Parker Dam is closed to RVs, so you cannot access from the north end. Watch for burros on the road. You must eat at Mi Burrito on the other side of Parker Dam where AZ-95 turns. It was fantastic! $1 tacos on Tue and Thu; half price combos on Sun.

Full time RV campers with two children (6 & 8) stayed 17 days in a 42 ft motorhome. Close campsites with pea gravel pads and roads, but easy to maneuver big rigs. BBQ grill and picnic table at each site. Pools were clean and heated. One of the more family friendly RV Parks that we've stayed at in the area. Flat, level, wide open sites with small palm trees and desert bushes for barriers. Tiki Bar at pool side with good food at good prices. Small store that carried most items in need; food, clothes, camping supplies, ice cream. Kid's Klub and playground was very secure. Maintenance was always busy working on something. Helpful staff and plenty of activities. Close to river, towns and desert. We camped at Emerald Cove Resort in a Motorhome.Undo

For 5 dollars you have internet that comes with a modem (Ethernet cable) so only for one device! and that includes also cable TV. We stayed here on our RPI membership. So total paid 15 dollars. Internet is good, cable is good. Long gravel pull thrus and backins, but they are small when you get neigbours. All around the park are palm trees. This is the dessert so the park is not really green but we liked it. Along the river with a nice beach. Quiet during day and night. Nice pools and everything looked good to us. We sure will come back. We camped at Emerald Cove Resort in a Fifth Wheel.Undo

We stayed here as a guest (this is a membership type resort). We paid an extra $2 per day for their cable TV. We had a large corner site. The site was gravel, but the dust was kept to a minimum. The pools were extremely clean. Same for the hot tubs. The snack bar (located between the two main pools) had decent food for a reasonable price. Happy hour (from 3-6 pm each day) was awesome ($3 domestic draft beer pitchers - 64 ounces). Our children enjoyed the Kids Club. There is a beach along the Colorado River; however, the water was too cold for us to go swimming in it. We would definitely stay here again. We camped at Emerald Cove Resort in a Fifth Wheel.Undo

We took this "resort" up on their offer of 4 free week nights in exchange for their sales pitch. This is a very old, tight park. We were shocked that they put us in such a short, narrow, 30 amp site when they were trying to "impress" us. Actually only some, not many, sites have 50 amp. We're in a "pull-through," but it's only long enough for the coach. Only a few waterfront sites and members get those. Our slides are less than a foot from the grill on one side and about a foot from the neighbor's picnic table on the other side. Wi-Fi is only at the clubhouse. They have pool tables and dart boards, but the equipment is all locked up and no one around. The streets and sites are mostly pea-gravel that tracks into the RV. Restrooms are old, but fairly clean. The bar serves "bar food" at very reasonable prices. If you're not into river and water activities, I have no idea why you'd come here. The salesman that gave us our pitch was extraordinarily rude. We would never come back here. We camped at Emerald Cove Resort in a Motorhome.Undo

Stayed here for two weeks in January: closer quarters with the neighbors but we still had a great time. 30 amp power, good water and adequate sewer. Very nice view of river from many sites and close to other activities. The Bar Happy Hour has got to be the best on the River, not only beer, wine but food too. We will return. Stayed here as RPI quests at 10 bucks a night. We camped at Emerald Cove Resort in a Motorhome.Undo

Like coming home. Great, clean pools and spas. Fun pool bar with excellent Happy Hour, and breakfast and lunch specials and tasty choices for early evening dining. Friendly wait staff. Paved roads, but much gravel and dust from sandy beach when the wind blows. Beautiful well tended mile long beach. Fun mini-golf course, ping pong table, and basketball court. Nice kids playhouse. Kids unfortunately allowed to get carried away with pool splashing and should be better supervised and rules set and applied . Handy, well equipped, small convenience store.

Price reflects Coast 2 Coast rate. The June 2012 reviewer must mistake this campground with some other one. Paved roads and gravel sites - not a problem. Nice view of the Colorado River, palm trees throughout the campground, mini golf, pitch and put golf course, club house, 2 swimming pools, 2 hot tubs, all nicely maintained. Don't forget that this is a desert location, so vegetation reflects this. Emerald Cove remains a favorite spot of ours, and we return to here every year.

CRA Member Park. Beautiful spot on the river, parking lot style gravel sites with cement pads, limited landscaping, picnic tables and barbecues at most. Cute little dog parks at either end, one with open doggie access to the river. Nice pools and spas. Fun, reasonably priced bar with good Happy Hour and decent food specials and menus. Fun kettle corn truck twice a week. Well stocked general store. Nice kids club playground and mini, and decent food in clubhouse when offered. Overall, a fun, homey place.

I am a member so read with bias if you want but I have to respond to last reviewer. First, I thought you had to have 3 reviews before you could publish? The roads are paved and the sites gravel. There are palm trees and oleander bushes as landscaping and at one end there are shade trees. If you are here on the weekend in the summer then yes it is on the river and a very young crowd. But it is a big park and you can be at the other end. The two pools are large and heated all year with a snack bar and bar poolside. In the winter there are 400+ snowbird rigs here and a very hospitable crowd. There are 50amp pull throughs. Wi-Fi is free near the club house and the pool area. You can also rent cable modems. Finally you have a half mile of river beach on one side and untold square miles of off-roading on the other. We are over 70 and have a pair of jet skis and a pair of quads. For some this is paradise. For others I guess not. By the way it is the end of Oct and at 9PM it is 70 outside. You can read my other reviews to get a feel of my thoughts. We camped at Emerald Cove Resort in a Fifth Wheel.Undo

Imagine a bleak, over-sized, square, gravel parking lot. Add to that dust blown and lacking any attempt at creating aesthetics in the park with landscaping or design. All of the facilities were old and looked long past due for remodeling. The men's room in the morning in a word: ewwww. Four of the 5 toilets were disgustingly clogged. The showers looked dirty. Apparently the party crowd trashed it out the night before and that is the behavior that park managers permit. There is a pool which was too crowded with kids and too noisy to use, however, there was an adult pool, but the water was greenish with algae and looked past due for chemicals. Skip this place unless desperate to dump tanks. We camped at Emerald Cove Resort in a Motorhome.Undo

They call themselves a resort, and they are truly large, and truly wonderful resort. Beautiful pools and spas. Beautiful beach on the Colorado River. Fun pool bar with good prices for drinks and food. Kid's clubhouse, and park clubhouse with decent, reasonably priced food. Nice dog park. Gravel sites with many palms and other trees throughout park. Well equipped general store, and kettle corn truck here day we arrived, but didn't stay. Each site had a picnic table. Some had grills. Would get a 10 if some of the roads within park were improved, sites had cement pads in addition to gravel, and all had barbecue grills. Price reflects CRA low use membership.
