I found the grounds to be well kept and and spacious. I tried out three of the beach areas there seemed to be about six different zones. My favorite was the north section beach which is also the smallest, it had very picturesque views of the red rock mountains. The power was good 50 amp and the water of the tap was really nice; I did let it flush for about 5 minutes before hooking up to it. This resort has a 10 hole golf course which access was included with the camp site fee. There is a small general store good for beer, ice, smaller niceties for people and RVs. TVs in the resort were responsibly priced, but major shopping is best done in town. We camped at River Lodge Resort in a Motorhome.

We had 4 spots all together. Not one of he 4 of the spots had hook ups hat were working. Some spots like outer spot only had water that was working. The full timer who was located infrint of us had an extra trailer that was in our spot. Our truck stuck out further than it should have. The spots were wide enough. Park was not well kept. The best part was a couple of snowbirds that were there and tried to help the us. We went into the office on the 13th when we left to talk to someone in The office. The lady that was working could care less that we all had issues. She said "I am just a snowbird working for my spot. There is nothing I Can do to help you." We had made reservations for our trip back to stay at the park again. We did not return. The bad part is our reservations were non refundable. They could not pay us to go back to that park. Out of the 4 rigs we all give big thumbs down, the pictures are very deceiving. We camped at River Lodge Resort in a Travel Trailer.

This is a large park that hasn't been maintained well. It is dusty, with gravel roads and a musty smelling club house. The focus is on renting spaces for park models and they seem to have forgotten about the RVs. From what we were told three parks were combined to one large park. There is a Par 3 golf course, but those staying in the park have to maintain it in order to keep it in reasonable shape. Beware of the large speed bump on the downside of the office that goes diagonally across the road. Large coaches could loose a windshield. We camped at River Lodge Resort in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

Watch out for the large speed bump on the downside of the office. Also beware if you are coming from the north as you can't cross the dam, but will need to travel 17 miles south to Parker and then north again on the west side of the river.

This is a large old campground located on the banks of the Colorado River. The sites contain mostly RVs and some tiny houses. Many of the RV sites are occupied by snowbirds down for the winter. The interior roads are wide and easy to navigate. The RV sites were dirt/gravel, good sized, reasonably level and spaced right with good access to utilities. All full hookups worked.

Cell phone reception was terrible, but the premium WIFI worked very well for $20 a month. Restrooms, laundry, and showers were dated, but functional. Staff and campers were friendly. This is a great place for dogs. The par three golf course looked good and is very popular with the residents. We stayed here three weeks. This isn't a bad campground for the money, but there's lots of campgrounds in this area worth a look. We camped at River Lodge Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

Location is 3 miles north of what is shown. Dusty, dirty park. Most sites are way away from river. Too many speed dumps. Most roads potholed or are just dirt. Paved roads are worn out, rough. Leaking faucets. Way over priced. Cant go over parker dam with any RV. We camped at River Lodge Resort in a Motorhome.

We found River Lodge Resort to be a great campground to go to in the spring (April or May)after most of winter visitors have left and before the summer crowds. It is located on the Colorado River so be sure to ask for a beachfront site. Sites on the river have a covered picnic table and there is enough landscaping to provide privacy from the next RV. The sites are good sized and the hookups are convenient. The weather can be very warm at this time of the year and is generally wind, but if you're looking for sunshine this is the place to go. There is a boat access at the resort and on weekends there is a lot of boat traffic on the river, otherwise it is quiet. You cannot cross the Parker Dam to get to the resort as it is closed to large vehicles, but the website provides directions to get there. We would highly recommend. We camped at River Lodge Resort in a Motorhome.

We stayed here for the month of Oct. just before the snowbirds. Monthly rate was 320.00 and we were about 25 feet from the Colorado River. Backed in and had a great view. This is an older park that just changed ownership. The new owners were working hard and were very nice. There is a par 3 golf course that is included in the fee. Its Bermuda grass but fun to play. 2 really tough par 3 holes. People friendly. Had a swarm of "May" flies for awhile. All and all it was a nice stay. Would come back. Understand that after Nov it fills up fast. We camped at River Lodge Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

This park has new owners since Jan 2006. They are a huge improvement over the previous owner that used to own it. The 9-hole golf course is well maintained and fun. Lots of trees and grass. One mile of beach on the Colorado river, to include a marina, a nice enclosed lagoon with a beach, and cabana for kids. The staff was friendly and helpful, especially Joe, the park foreman; and Kathy who runs the store and office. This is the best RV experience we've had in years. We're going back soon!!
