I agree with the other people who made poor reviews. Nice long drive-ways, but you put your RV on the gravel beside. Advertise Wi-Fi, we were close to Hot Spot, but didn't work. No cable. Pricy for no cable and Wi-Fi. We camped at The Palms River Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

Good Sam rating is 9/9/9.5, which must be self rated. Given the nonexistent restrooms and showers a 9 rating makes me wonder. We were parked in a gravel lot with a view of a storage building. I could not recommend this park to anyone. We camped at The Palms River Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

Very nice clean park with a friendly staff and awesome store. Our only complaint is that the pool wasn't heated. Loved it and the river view was lovely. We camped at The Palms River Resort in a Motorhome.

Stayed at the resort during the Christmas holiday. After making an online reservation for a week and paying in full I was told I owed an additional $27 for electric, this was after I stayed one night. The explanation for the charge was “this is a new policy.” The resort web site is not correct, hot tub and pool are not heated and are usable. The resort has a distinctive smell of open sewer by the homes near the pool and showers. ATVs, dirt bikes and golf carts roam at all speeds throughout the resort during all hours making it unsafe to walk. RV sites are mixed in with single wide prefab homes. If you neighbor has an ATV you will be polluted with noise day and night. Paperwork and signatures for registration is mind boggling. I guess it is needed in case you get run over by an ATV. Restroom facilities were clean and the Christmas Party organized by fellow camper was memorable with friendly guests. Sites are level and spacious. We camped at The Palms River Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

This park is geared to manufactured and park model homes. The empty spaces are available for RV's. There is only one restroom, centrally located within the beautiful pool area. I did not see any showers, but they may be there. No cable TV, most residents had satellite dishes. All sites had a picnic bench. HD TV was available on our RV antenna. All of the major networks had a good signal. Staff was friendly and very helpful. Boat ramp available. Reasonably priced for a resort style RV park. Office closes at 5PM, and gate requires a pass code. Best make reservation if arriving after 5pm for gate code, and WiFi passwords. Would stay here again, very nice. We camped at The Palms River Resort in a Motorhome.

Great to stop in for a night. Site had plenty of room, was all red rock, no concrete patio or shade, but again we were just passing through and it was easy in and out. Clerk at front desk was friendly and helpful. We camped at The Palms River Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

Woodalls should be ashamed for rating this RV park high! This is NOT a 5 star resort. The ads for this RV park are VERY deceiving. The "RV" portion of the park is actually in a storage unit-- sites are in a cinder strip between a 10' security fence and storage facility. The pool, though it does exist is actually in a a full time mobile home park not the rv park. The lagoon featured in the ad, is only accessible through the full-time mobile homes-- NOT the description in the add or in Woodalls. We only stayed here because we were tired. I would not stay here again! The sites that do exist as stated above are cinder--no landscaping and the view (besides the neighbors sewer hook-up) were of the fence and the storage unit. There are no public restrooms or showers available to the rv park -- don't expect to use those. (these may be available in the full-time moblie home park) We had to request a picnic table and use blocks to level. All in all, NOT a place we will go back to. We camped at The Palms River Resort in a Travel Trailer.

A very nice park. Staff friendly and helpful. This park is for modular homes and RV's. Seems like RV's are being phased out as new homes are placed. Swimming pool is beautiful but not heated. Spa is great. We stayed here five months. We would return if space is available. We camped at The Palms River Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

Mostly a community of pre-fab homes. In the center is an gravel area with hookups. Swimming pool seemed nice enough, but the rest of the area was desolate. We thought the name Palms River Resort might give us a view of the Colorado river but no view. We had to walk by people's homes to get a glimpse of the river. The only place for garbage was way up towards the storage facilities; there were no other receptacles available. We camped at The Palms River Resort in a Motorhome.

We've been on a 3 week road trip in our new RV. Of all of the parks between CA and TX we stayed at this was by far our favorite. We originally were only going to stay one night on our way home but liked it so much we stayed 2. This park felt like a resort. We have two boys 7 & 5 and this place was perfect for them. The pool made us feel like we were on an island instead of the desert (palm trees, lots of shade, misters, bbq grills pool side). We spent the hottest part of the day in the air conditioned game room playing pool, shuffle board, air hockey, foosball, and Ms. pacman (and laundry!). The kids favorite part was the inflatable tall waterslide: we couldn't get them off it! There were more families here than we've seen at other parks and the kids enjoyed making new friends. Ask for a space by the pool!! Only negative was the river beach area. We hoped to play in the river, but without water toys the pool was more appealing. (Great place to bring a boat: wish we had one!!) The beach was clean, just really small and right next to the boat launch. There was a cool deck area to hang out that's overlooking the river though. We'll definitely stay here again when we're traveling on I-40. We camped at The Palms River Resort in a Motorhome.

We turned uo to this little oasis late and the gates were closed, thought this looks so expensive but rang number on gate, lovely lady came to let us in and took us to resort style site. Spent night in pool had a lovely poolside BBQ, soaked in spa, saw gym, games room even children's water slide, tennis court, and basketball court. Do yourself a favor and spend time at this oasis on the Colorado river; you won't want to leave. Believe it or not this was the cheapest but by far the best RV camp we stayed in over our 22 days on the road. We camped at The Palms River Resort in a Motorhome.

WOW! This is the nicest park I have seen by far. The manager that helped us in the store and with our reservation was very outgoing and polite. She has a great up-beat personality and was very helpful. She gave us a tour of the park which was totally amazing! The club house,pool,spa area was beautiful. You can see it a tight running park and very well maintained. The manager told us that they have year round activities and events. Some at the park and some outside the park. We were scheduled to stay only 2 nights but ended up staying a week. The Palms River Resort is were we will spend our summer when we can. We camped at The Palms River Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

Very clean park and friendly staff. The pool area is very clean and well maintained, however, the pool is not heated which was very disappointing as the pool area is so inviting. Wi-Fi coverage is good. No cable TV, however, they have a great dvd collection in the resort office that you can rent for $1/night. We camped at The Palms River Resort in a Motorhome.

The park in nice. Very clean.The staff friendly. The RV sites were on a gravel slope which required some adjusting and a long way from the river. The Wi-Fi was excellent. The pool heat was not working so the pool was slightly above freezing. The spa required you to turn on the heat which took a half an hour before it warmed. I probably will not return. We camped at The Palms River Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

The GPS does not help find this park. It is easy enough if you don't follow the GPS but use the signs. This park started as a mobile home community. The RV spots are in vacant areas. However the RV spots are not between mobile homes but is sections within the park. The spaces are wide and open no landscaping at the sites. It is a gated park along the river. Nice office and staff the people staying in the park are very friendly and were invited to join any of the activities during our short stay. we should stay again and plan for a loner stay next time. We camped at The Palms River Resort in a Fifth Wheel.
