We spent two nights here on our way from Texas up the west coast. This is a desert type campground, so not a lot of trees or shade. The sites were large and simple to get into. Very few 50 amp sites so we got a 30. The socket was loose and my 50-to-30 amp adapter showed signs of overheating due to a poor connection. The first section of road off of IH-40 from the east was very rough. I noticed that taking the exist to the west and driving back to the park was about the same distance with much better road. We camped at Needles KOA in a Fifth Wheel.

Just across the bridge in Arizona you can find gas for as much as 1.50 cheaper than along IH-40 in California. Literally a 5 minute drive.

It was a last-minute decision to stay one night. This is a nice desert campground. The site assigned was spacious. The park looked clean. Friendly and helpful staff. I even got an escort to my site. A little hard to find. They could use a tall sign to be seen from the freeway. We camped at Needles KOA in a Motorhome.

Very friendly and helpful staff. Neat and tidy. Easy access off the interstate. Nice selection of souviners, some food and alcohol in the store. Easy access to propane station. The site was very level. Very little privacy from site to site. There a few bushes but not many. Good OTA TV reception and good Verizon. We camped at Needles KOA in a Motorhome.

Out of the way park, but easy on and off I-40. Hedges separating sites gave a sense of privacy. Good cell phone and mifi reception. No cable, we received a number of OTA channels from Arizona and Nevada. We camped at Needles KOA in a Travel Trailer.

Tips for other Campers:

Gas is very expensive in Needles, Ca. near I-40. We saved about $1.50 a gallon by going over to the Arizona side of town. You can find plenty of restaurants and shopping about 15 miles north of Needles.

The sites are gravel, fairly level, few trees and the utilities work well. A few long term residents, grounds and facilities fairly well taken care of. The surrounding area has a bit of an old, worn feeling to it. Biggest mistake was taking the 141 freeway exit instead of 139 which would have minimized the amount of travel on the horribly pot holed and pitted access road. On arrival (early afternoon) no one present at the office (summer hours) but our site was posted on a sign on the door. Check in went well after we set up and the office re-opened.

Okay for a quick overnight, although in the future we will just try to bypass Needles. We camped at Needles KOA in a Motorhome.

OK spot to overnight. There's not much in Needles in the way of vegetation so don't expect a nice shady spot. Park and sites are rock and some of the sites offer full hookup. Oleander bushes separate the sites. If passing by this area again, we would probably stay in Lake Havasu City. We camped at Needles KOA in a Fifth Wheel.

This was an over night stop and we didn't expect a lavish site. We did expect our site to be a pull through but it was too short to allow us to keep the tow attached. The site was dirt. Minimal vegetation. Certainly not what we expect from a KOS. Should we need a stop in Needles again we will try the Desert View RV Resort next door. We camped at Needles KOA in a Motorhome.

GPS took us right to the park. Very large sites; very easy and out. All gravel with pretty flowering shrubs separating sites; a bit dusty if the wind blows. No trees in most sites so easy to use satellite TV. No dog park but lots of area to walk the dogs. Well stocked and very organized office/store. Friendly helpful staff. We camped at Needles KOA in a Fifth Wheel.

The pull through site was adequate in size if a little short. The utilities are grouped together in the rear third and worked as expected. Between each site were bushes that really didn't provide much privacy. The wifi was useless and there was no cable, only OTA. Our Verizon MIFI worked very well. The sites are sand & gravel with no real shade trees. Needles is a dying town with few stores. We camped at Needles KOA in a Motorhome.

Thin Gravel sites with bushes in between. Raked after each Rv leaves. Very good staff. Everyone makes an effort to drive slow as it really can be dusty. I would stay here again for a night, but to stay longer depends on how you feel about dust. We camped at Needles KOA in a Motorhome.

Colorado River is near by. Visit Bullhead city and the USS Arizona memorial they have there...its a nice walk along the river at this memorial. Smith's grocery there is good shopping too.

We were scheduled to stay 4 days, but by the 3rd day I couldn't take the fine dirt/gravel I was constantly sweeping out of our RV even with a patio carpet. The park is well maintained but very dated. The bathrooms needed to be remodeled or at least deep cleaned. The shrubs between sites help with privacy where they have filled in. Unfortunately ours had died back in several places and we had to look at our neighbors clear sewer elbow when sitting outside enjoying the weather. The pool did not have water in it. The staff changed daily so we did not get to know them. The long term snowbirds are not the friendliest bunch and stayed in their own group. They Do Not allow ATVs. No WiFi at the site is a deal breaker for me. Typical KOA. Dated with lots of rules. Good for a couple of days or overnight if you can stand the fine dirt gravel in the sites. We camped at Needles KOA in a Motorhome.

Buy groceries and gas in Arizona. Gas is twice the price in Needles. There are no grocery stores anymore.

We stayed here overnight; it's located off of I-40 but little road noise. Staff was helpful and friendly. The view of the mountains is excellent and we were treated to an outstanding sunset. They don't have cable or Wi-Fi at the sites, but have a number of air channels.

The CG is gravel and a bit dusty, it's an older KOA. We camped at Needles KOA in a Fifth Wheel.

We stayed one night in a motorhome. Fairly level gravel sites, very helpful and nice staff, clean restrooms. A very pleasant place to stay on your I-40 travels. Would definitely stay here again. We camped at Needles KOA in a Motorhome.

This is the one KOA that always checks for reward points so that I actually paid much less than the nightly rate. I really appreciate that. Was given a shaded pull-thru site which helped since the temp was over 100 degrees. It's desert so the sites are gravel, but the hookups work well and you have OTA television reception from both Las Vegas and Phoenix. Have stayed here before and probably will again. We camped at Needles KOA in a Motorhome.

Be sure to gas up before you cross the border from Arizona. The prices in Needles are so bad that even the locals go elsewhere.

Had a site shaded from the afternoon sun with full hookups and a picnic table. There is no cable, but OTA stations are fairly numerous. The streets here are extra wide and the full hookup sites are on one side of the office building and the water/electic sites are on the opposite side. Propane is readily available and easily accessible. And dogs are very welcome here. Will stay here again. We camped at Needles KOA in a Motorhome.
