This was an incredible campground. It was very windy the whole time we were here. The peninsula sites are private and you share a beach with the 4 RV's on your peninsula. We were there in April and felt like we had the place to ourselves. The bar and grille was good but the "bucket" drinks were very pricey.($30 for one drink!) Full hookups right on the Colorado river. The RV sites were on dirt and gravel and required several blocks to get our trailer level. When I called and made the reservation the girl at the front desk said all sites and hookups are back in. That is not the case. Some sites are made to drive in for motorhomes. The site they gave us had hookups made to drive in and not back a trailer into. However it was easy to change sites. The only negative thing that happened was on our last night. The group who was coming into our peninsula site the day we left were let in by the security guard at 2AM. They woke us up and were very loud. They should of been put in overflow parking until we left in the morning. Checkout time was 11AM and we felt rushed out of our site due to the 3 rigs who had pulled onto our peninsula and were waiting for us to leave. We called the front desk and complained and they were very friendly and apologetic. The girl at the desk said they are not supposed to let guests in so late and the security guard should not have done that. If it weren't for that I would have given a 9 (no 10 because of no cable TV.) We camped at Pirate Cove RV Resort & Marina in a Travel Trailer.

This is one of my most favorite parks. It has something for everyone. They have campsites on an asphalt lot or you can drive down to the other end of the park and camp on the Colorado rivers edge. The spaces are pretty level and only on dirt. However, they do have full hookups. It is quiet and simple beautiful. And while you are there check out the Pirates Cove Bar and Grille. Great food and conveniently located on the premises. We camped at Pirate Cove RV Resort & Marina in a Motorhome.

Great place to camp, each camp area hold from 4 to 10 rigs, most hold 4. Campsites are not laid out very well, request direction you'll be facing (river, desert, or another rig) when you book. Once your booked in a spot, the staff has a problem to change it. For example I requested 2-A, they said it was not available, they put us in 2-B for two weeks, we were for two weeks and some one did come into 2-A, they were there for one day???? We camped at Pirate Cove RV Resort & Marina in a Motorhome.

Price reflects monthly winter rate. We were here for 6 weeks in a peninsula site right on the River. Very clean, security very good, river access great, beach between each peninsula. Restaurant mediocre and over priced but good atmosphere, nice bar, etc. Route 66 at Topak restaurant excellent and close. Shopping in Needles about 10 miles. Will definitely spend more time there if we have opportunity. We camped at Pirate Cove RV Resort & Marina in a Fifth Wheel.

Did not pay the nightly rate as we are staying here for a month. Great winter rates, nice staff, clean restrooms and great right-on-the-river sites. This is a remote RV park with best sites on the river away from the resort, so if your looking for anything other than beauty and relaxation, this may be too remote for some, but we found it to be our own little paradise.

What a wonderful place to stay with a group of friends and family. Full hook ups right next to the river and your own beach. What more could you ask for. The cost is not bad because the state parks charge $45 per night with nothing, but dirt at least here you have FULL HOOK UPS....WOW. We camped at Pirate Cove RV Resort & Marina in a Motorhome.

We stayed on the peninsula and it was almost completely empty. The sites were just sandy dirt, but surprisingly even being that close to the water, there was sewer hook ups. Other than being full hook up, the sites are plain and close together. Each group of sites is arranged in a Cul-de-sac fashion with 4 or 5 sites in a bunch. Each group of sites has a sandy beach that separates one group of sites from the next. The weather in summer was super hot, about 110 degrees during the day. We checked out the restaurant and bar area. We had a few drinks at the bar, but it was so hot, we didn't stay long. Not the resorts fault, but they should have at least installed fans to keep the air moving. It's not like they are not aware it gets hot there! The poor bar maid was sweating bullets. When we checked in, by not making a reservation we saved the $10 registration fee. And they did honor the 10% Good Sam discount. I may stay here again, just not this time of year, it was just too hot. We camped at Pirate Cove RV Resort & Marina in a Fifth Wheel.

It is a gem of a spot. We stayed on the peninsula next to the river. Great spot if you have a boat. There is a water park attached to this park. They have a nice little restaurant and rental cabins. Great park would stay here again. We camped at Pirate Cove RV Resort & Marina in a Fifth Wheel.

This is a great spot for the family and dogs to be on the river. The "pods" accommodate 3-4 campers, but the location is great if not completely private. These peninsula locations cost more than the other RV sites that are closer to the office. The people are very friendly and there is a lot to do. We gave it a 7 only because of the cost. $50 per night is pretty steep and if you reserve online, it is another $10. At $60, we think this is overpriced. There are no discounts available. Would we stay here again? Probably because it is interesting and a terrific site on the river, but we sure wouldn't stay here for a long time. Two weeks is $700! I think they could at least provider some kind of discounts: AAA, Good Sam, Passport or senior discounts, or perhaps seasonal rates. Its a fun spot, though. We camped at Pirate Cove RV Resort & Marina in a Travel Trailer.

We found Pirate Cove RV Resort by accident while traveling down Route 66 going to Oatman, Ca. We pulled in for a bite to eat and was amazed at this hidden gem of an RV Resort in California! The RV Resort was amazing and Pirate themed throughout. It was like visiting the Bahamas in the middle of the dessert. We decided to stay for the night and got a spot right on the Colorado River. We had a campfire and watched the most beautiful sunset ever!! The next day we decided to take a boat tour through Topock Gorge which is like a mini Grand Canyon. Our family was so amazed how well Pirate Cove RV Resort was put together and they did not miss any details. Also what was even more amazing is they had a Zip line that went across the Colorado River! I felt like a kid in a Peter Pan movie. If you are taking a ride down Route 66 this is a must stop RV Resort that can't be missed. We camped at Pirate Cove RV Resort & Marina in a Travel Trailer.
