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.

Tips for other Campers:

River City Pizza Co. will deliver to the park. In addition to pizza, they offer subs and pasta dishes.

Easy access of I 40 when travelling either east or west; minimal traffic noise from interstate. Park is located on Route 66 and the office store has a many "66" items for sale. Full service pull thru sites are level and separated by shrubs that have been pruned back in the last couple of years. Sites are a little short, however, the access road is very wide so 5th wheel tow vehicle can safely extend into roadway. There is a wi-fi hot spot available in the office area, no cable TV. A night time walk in the campsite to see the lights along the Colorado River is worthwhile. We camped at Needles KOA in a Fifth Wheel.

Arrived after dark and they were closed. It was January 3 so not much activity so the office was closed. Large area to maneuver in front of the office are was appreciated as we are 45' plus tow. Could see one section that look primarily permanent, but clean and well kept. We chose a site on the west side made of up five rows and roughly 10 sites per row. Easy to pull into and pull out of the next morning. Only issue was once parked, there was only 30 amp power and we really need 50 amp as we are all electric. Could have looked around in the park to find 50 amp, but was late and we didn't want to fuss with it. Quiet nights sleep, worth the money. Would stay here again when passing through. We camped at Needles KOA in a Motorhome.

We stayed a couple of nights to avoid towing during a snowstorm (!); turns out we enjoyed the campground more than we expected. Very clean and well organized. No cable was a definite drawback as there wasn't much over the air. The whole campground is desert dirt, which is fine, but it does track inside a lot when snowy/wet... as expected. The sites themselves are nice and most are separated from their neighbours by tastefully arranged shrubs. They are on the short side, though, but they are wide enough that we could park both our little car and our pickup truck beside the fifth-wheel. That left no room at all. It's also good to know that the closest (complete) grocery store is almost 30 minutes away. All in all, though, we would certainly stay here again when in the area. We camped at Needles KOA in a Fifth Wheel.

Very nice KOA. Very friendly staff. I love the hedges between the spots. It gives one privacy. We got lost coming to the park off of I 40 going west. Apparently there's a signage dispute and their sign was down. The secret is to go left off of the freeway when traveling west! My only complaint is that they seriously need cable TV. No cable is the only reason I gave them an 8 instead of a 10. However, the wide open sky was good for satellite reception. We camped at Needles KOA in a Motorhome.

Nice, friendly KOA just outside Needles CA in the desert. No grass, but they did conveniently plant tall shrubs between sites to add the feeling of privacy. Very easy in/out with wide gravel roads. They have a pool, laundry, store, pet walk, and playground as most KOAs do. Only 11 of their sites are 50A so call ahead if that's important, e.g. running 2 air conditioners in summer! Both ATT & Verizon had strong signals. The only grocery store in Needles closes this week so plan to drive 20 miles to the closest major Walmart/Safeway if needed. We camped at Needles KOA in a Fifth Wheel.

It is a desert KOA. The sites are gravel and nicely open and level. The staff is friendly, the store is well stocked. Lovely view of desert, sky, and distant mountain . Nice pool and well maintained community room. A good overnight stop, and many guests were using this as a base for Laughlin. We camped at Needles KOA in a Motorhome.

Good overnight spot. Some of the sites have shade, but most do not. Hookups are well-placed and reliable. Staff is friendly. No cable TV if that's important, but there are a number of over the air stations from both Nevada and Arizona cities. Sites are pull-through and spacious, and the streets are wide. Have stayed here before and will again when in the area. We camped at Needles KOA in a Motorhome.

We couldn't drive any longer. Got what we paid for. Nice spot to RON (remain over night). Bathrooms were super clean! Sites were large and level, staff put us in a site where we didn't have to drop the toad. Nice folks, we'll be back--for one night. We camped at Needles KOA in a Motorhome.

This was a decent KOA. The full hookup sites were a good size for us. The sites are all gravel as well as the interior roads, so a little dusty. The hookups we're conveniently located. The staff we're great and friendly. The park had a nice feel and atmosphere to it. The pool was closed due to the winter season. There is a lot of open desert right by the park to take your dog for a walk or just go for a decent hike. You're right on old route 66. There's lots to see and do in this area. So we really enjoyed our stay. We would stay here again if in the area. We camped at Needles KOA in a Motorhome.

Nice spot! Helpful staff and even let us into the closed pool (pretty cold! But great!). Laundry facilities were large enough to handle a couple weeks of craziness. Friendly folks wandering around, excellent landscaping. Well-stocked camp store. Overall, a very nice overnight stay. We camped at Needles KOA in a Travel Trailer.

Very pet friendly park with full hookups. Can be miserably hot in summer, but the manager always tries to find you a site with some shade. There's no cable, but stations from both Phoenix and Las Vegas come in over-the-air. We camped at Needles KOA in a Motorhome.

We stayed here for a week visiting with friends. The staff is friendly, has a well stocked store, and nice level, private sites. Most of the monthly sites were filled with snowbirds except the sites without sewer. Very well kept park, quiet, and good views from our site. Would definitely stay here again. We camped at Needles KOA in a Fifth Wheel.

Decent KOA, fairly easy access. We had a quick overnight stop and it was sufficient for that purpose. The host (??) was friendly and very nice. She was younger and seemed like a manager. I'm not sure what her role was, but she was friendly. There is a lot of noise from the highway, this is not a vacation-type spot. The store was pretty bare, but had some decent route 66 souvenirs. There was a woman working in the store who was less than friendly, and I remember feeling a bit uncomfortable while looking around. Water pressure was good, power good. The pull-through sites don't have any privacy and I felt very much "on-display" when I stepped out in the morning. Not sure if there are long term people here, but there was an older man who sat outside his RV from sunrise til we left, who just glared at us. It was a well maintained KOA and we would stay again if we were driving through. We camped at Needles KOA in a Fifth Wheel.
