This park is lush with landscape for shade and privacy! Free Wifi, Easy hook-ups and nice size level pull thru spaces with cement pads. Fully equipped with pool, clubhouse, games, laundry, kitchen, dog run, and very clean. Excellent staff! We camped at Desert View RV Resort in a Motorhome.

We stopped overnight. First time here and we really liked the level sites and the privacy created by the oleanders and trees between each site. The one downside was getting here. The address is listed as 5300 Route 66, but GPS puts you about a ½ mile away. It turns out Route 66 here also has another street name.

At any rate, we found it and would stay here again. We camped at Desert View RV Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

Park is hard to get to going west on I-40. Interior roads to park are rough unless you like to shake, rattle and roll. Park is nicely maintained. Has pool, recreation room and outdoor grilling area. Restroom and showers (2) were in pool area. They were adequate. Good place to stay for one night during summer travels. We camped at Desert View RV Resort in a Motorhome.

Have stayed here for a few nights each year as a break for our annual sojourn to Arizona. Good value. Level sites, unusually good site privacy - tall thick hedges between sites. Friendly staff. Great place to dry out from the Oregon rain. We camped at Desert View RV Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

We spent the winter here and enjoyed ourselves very much. We plan on coming back next winter and look forward to all the friends we made. The club House is busy every day with games or pot lucks or just visiting and there's horse shoes and golf or ATV outings. The sites are large, private and quiet. Needles doesn't have much going on but it's half way between Bull Head City/Laughlin and Lake Havasu City and that's perfect for us. We camped at Desert View RV Resort in a Motorhome.

I researched (visited each park in Needles) earlier this year and picked this resort for our group outing. I don't know when the new owner (Sinisha Kostich) took over but he is an outstanding people person. this park is one of the cleanest that we have stayed in. Large pull through sites. Rec Room is 24/7 and air conditioned. We spoke with the owner several times during our stay and he is striving to make this park even better. Our group of nine rigs are looking forward to returining to this park. We camped at Desert View RV Resort in a Motorhome.

We stayed at this park about three years ago and not much has changed. A park of mostly permanents with a long row of pull-through sites for the overnight crowd. Fairly easy to get to and yet far enough from I-40 that the night traffic noise is not bothersome. Nothing nearby in the way of markets, cafes, etc. so you unless you have a tow along you need to have your "essentials" in stock before hooking up. It's called Desert View but all the pull-through spaces face inward and look directly at other RVs or the park's facility buildings and pool, etc. The view of the desert is in back if you care to walk around and take a peek. A good, clean, quiet and safe stopover for the night and one that we will continue to use when in the Needles area. We camped at Desert View RV Resort in a Motorhome.

As mentioned in my review, you are pretty much out of town in the boonies in this park so best to have stock on hand before settling in for the night.

Not really pull throughs. Very tight for 40' mh. Had to trim bushes for slides. Sewer connection uphill. Owner tried to park us backwards in a site much less than 40 feet. Very nice camp hosts. We camped at Desert View RV Resort in a Motorhome.

My wife and I planned a stopped at Desert View RV Resort for 2 nights and ended up staying 2 weeks. The park operators are very friendly and helpful. The owner of the park is a good person who really cares about his place and tries to ensure your needs are met. The spaces were plenty big for our 27' rig with one slide out. Every spot have trees separating each RV from one another, which gives good privacy. There are a lot of activities to do with other RVer's in the park. They put on different types of tournaments through out the week. Most were snowbirds escaping the north cold. Everyone we met were so friendly. This park is very pet friendly with ample room to walk your pets. The spaces were level and easily accessible. Bullhead/ Laughlin are about 25 miles away, but an easy drive. There are several places to eat in the area. Satellite is easy to acquire. The only downfall with this park is the internet service (slow), which they admit on the phone. They have great rates when staying a week or longer. We will stay here again when back in the area. We camped at Desert View RV Resort in a Travel Trailer.

We stayed for one night while traveling through to AZ. Park was clean and well maintained. Gravel interior roads and sites, but very nice large concrete pads for chairs - no tables provided. Restrooms were clean but only two at the pool - shower and toilet together. There was an additional men's and ladies toilet in the community center. Hookups were well placed. No cable, but we picked up 28 air channels. Needles has a 10% occupancy tax. Park was well landscaped with palm trees and oleanders. The KOA next door had few RVs there as this park was full. We camped at Desert View RV Resort in a Motorhome.

We meet the new owner when we entered the park. He seemed like he wanted to make a lot of improvements to the park. The sites themselves are very private with shrubs on both sides of the camper but are a little tight. We had to keep repositioning the camper so the slideouts wouldn't hit the trees. The pool looked a little cloudy but nice. Bathrooms were clean but could use updating. WiFi worked good but you could only connect one device at a time which was a pain. Cable would have been nice but there were enough air channels for a couple of days. We would probably stay again. We camped at Desert View RV Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

All I can say is "WOW"! We have never stayed is such a nice RV park! Everything is so clean! Park has lots of amenities, pool, laundry, rec room with pool table, small kitchen and lots of out door games. Rv sites are gravel with a large cement pad. There are privacy bushes on both sides. Hosts are friendly and helpful even escorting you to your site. Amazing place for being off the highway. We camped at Desert View RV Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

We've been here for a few weeks now and really like the park. Last year we visited multiple parks in the area and settled on this one. There is easy access to the park, which is mostly gravel but well maintained, and the sites are good sized, level, with privacy hedges and concrete patio. The Oleanders are currently in bloom, nice. We have used the pool, laundry and restrooms. All were clean and new washers have been installed. Some of the facilities are dated but well kept. Management is friendly, very helpful and approachable. We camped at Desert View RV Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

My husband and I have been coming to Desert View RV for several years now. It is a half way point for us so it is was a perfect place to stay. We were so disappointed this last time. No resort host to greet you when you come in, No one to guide you to your site and we pretty much had to register ourselves. Upon getting set up we went to use the pool which is usually very refreshing this time of the year but were disappointed there as well.The pool was disgustingly filthy I wouldn't allow our dog to swim in there. The bathrooms were dirtier then i have ever seen them. Not sure what happened to the nice young lady and her husband that have been host there for a few years now but you surely can tell they are no longer there because we always like seeing her smile and her husband was always so pleasant and eager to help us with anything we needed. Needless to say we will not be returning here ever again. Sad really because it used to be the best place in Needles to stay. We camped at Desert View RV Resort in a Motorhome.
