Office closes at 4 during the spring and summer. They reserve a row of pull throughs for anyone arriving after 4. Those pull throughs are big rig friendly but will likely require that you unhook your tow vehicle. Our 40 ft plus towed rubicon did not fit. The provided cable tv did not work. We had to dig the cable out of the dirt and it was not functional. If you love your satellite TV, park towards the back of the site to avoid interference with the palm trees lining one side of all the spots in this row. Ambience of this park is better than any in the area. Landscaping and RV spots are well maintained. No picnic tables or fire rings. We camped at Rio Bend RV & Golf Resort in a Motorhome.

Off season so park was pretty empty. Nice site, pool under repair. Golf course next door. Lot spacing was spacious with a sunny/open exposure. Site surface was gravel. Restrooms and showers were clean. We camped at Rio Bend RV & Golf Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

We have stayed here once before for 2 weeks, and did so again this year because the services and staff are great, and the RVers are very friendly. The sites are separated by OLEANDER bushes and wide enough for privacy. The back of the park sites could use more gravel to build them up a bit from the soil behind them, but most are level. I'll be back again in winter of 2017. We camped at Rio Bend RV & Golf Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

El Centro is 8 miles away, the golf course is very good so bring your clubs, pool is excellent and the food is good at the golf course.

Wonderful campground!! Wide, level sites. Plantings between each site. Everyone friendly! Staff amazing. Lots of activities. Golf course, nightly music, pool, laundry. Be warned that the laundry uses a card system so you must buy a card for $5 then load a minimum of $10 so my one load of laundry would have been $15. This is one of the few campgrounds we have visited that we would consider staying for a month or the winter season. Definitely returning. We camped at Rio Bend RV & Golf Resort in a Motorhome.

We came here after we left a narrow street park a bit east of here so loved the wide paved streets. Nothing else going on around this place though. If you need something and don't have a car....good luck. The sites are gravel so plenty of dust into your unit in a hurry. We were here in November, plenty of snowbirds, seem to like the golf course but that's it, nothing else going on. El Centro isn't a particularly well kept town so if you are okay with that you might like this spot. I do like the distance off the Freeway, very quiet spot.

Walking from this place not very good as the roads all serve the farming community. Not much nearby.

Ant infested park, office told us ants are part of nature. We packed up and left had motorhome fumigated for ants.

Listed as a resort 105 degrees no shade and pool under repair, dump! Don't go here!

There is nothing to do there everything is closed up or under construction. The management was not helpful when we needed them. Parking was on orange clay and course rocks that sticks to your shoes, so you have to remove them before you enter your motorhome. We camped at Rio Bend RV & Golf Resort in a Motorhome.

Stopped for overnight stay. Large Pull throughs, along small lake. Best sites for Satellite #5-11. Easy on/off Hwy 8. Actually Located in Seeley, Ca.

9 hole Golf course. Pet friendly. We stay here to get early start to SD. A lot easier to climb the hill in the morning, lower temps and less traffic. Will stay again. We camped at Rio Bend RV & Golf Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

This park was a little further away from the bird watching than was ideal but we would stay here again; the staff were friendly and the price was right. The parking slots and roads are a bit narrow and it would have taken quite a bit of futzing to get our trailer in were it not for being at the end of a cross street. It is older but well maintained and the common areas were neat and clean. The dining area was freezing the one morning we took advantage of breakfast. The golf course might look easy on the score card but elevation changes make this a suitably challenging 9 holes for the average golfer. We camped at Rio Bend RV & Golf Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

Great older well-kept park. Large pool area, local Wi-Fi OK, Verizon card worked fine. Dog friendly, fishing in ponds. Too hot to play golf, course looked green. GREAT overnight spot to head up Hwy 8 to San Diego, about 35 mies to mountain grade. Started early (5:30) when weather cool, zipped right up hill. Will stop again.

We have stayed here a number of times and I have rated this park once before. It is a very nice park. Again we were in a spot overlooking a small lake. There are fish in the lake and someone was swimming in it. Sites are gravel and medium sized. The space were were in this time was a bit tighter than when we last stayed here and our 42' motorhome and Jeep would both not fit into the spot. This place has lots of facilities. Rec room, exercise facilities, golf, restaurant, and so on. My big problem with this park is the military jet noise. It is very prevalent. If not for the noise I would still rate the park a 9. Sites a bit cramped to rate a 10. If you are a light sleeper the noise from the jets and freeway may give you some problems. But there are lots of people who have permanent park units here that seem to like it a lot. We camped at Rio Bend RV & Golf Resort in a Motorhome.

Rate is Passport American. Nice park. Pool was very warm and the hot tub was great. Never made it to town as we were here only 3 days. Plan to return mid March to see the Blue Angels show. We camped at Rio Bend RV & Golf Resort in a Motorhome.

We only stayed here 3 nights. It was noisy with the Navy jets, Blue Angels, practicing over the Park and surrounding desert. We had a pull through which was easy to get into but difficult to get out of. The site itself was level and near one of the lakes and was very quiet, except for the planes. The check in staff were courteous and helpful. Most sites were occupied by snowbirds and park models. We stayed here in a 37 foot fifth-wheel and would stay here again if passing through.

NICE park, friendly staff, parked facing lake on basically a pull through site. Pleasant surprise was the Friday night, all you could eat, fish fry for $8.95 per person. We stayed here for 2 days on our way to Mexico. Will return next year too. We camped at Rio Bend RV & Golf Resort in a Motorhome.

We faced the lake. Wide and long sites. WiFi weak and slow. Went out when the wind came up. Noisy ducks and geese at 4am. Office closed Sunday. But if no resident ducks and strong WiFi I would rate this park a 10. We camped at Rio Bend RV & Golf Resort in a Motorhome.
