Rate reflects Resorts of Distinction (ROD) rate. This park is nicely situated, one exit west for those wanting to go to Los Algodones, MX. The utilities worked fine. This park is gravel, and most occupants observe the 5 MPH speed limit, so the dust isn't too bad, but if you are on the back row next to the BLM land, the dust from traffic driving by can be a real hazard. The hot tub did not have HOT water, and the jets did not work. We camped at Pilot Knob RV Resort in a Motorhome.

We spent a week here. On the day before we had to leave one of the men working here that drives the golf cart around came up to my husband and asked, "What did you do with the back flow valve on your water?" My husband asked, "What?". The guy led him to our water connection and said the back flow valve here. My husband said there had never been one on it. The guy with this accusing man said, there isn't one on this one either, referring to the one next to ours. My husband was never near the water valve area at all the day the man referred to. The park is run down. The restrooms are clean, but need updating bad. The office personnel were friendly. The tengonet cable is $2.00 a day with coupon codes from the office. We were parked right next to the tower, and our service was slow and off and on. The local TV channels are almost all Spanish except ABC, NBC and CBS and FOX. The jacuzzi was warm and the pool cold. The laundry is $1.25 a load for washer and dryers and do a good job. Most sites had no picnic table, but we had one that should have been made into firewood as it was in bad shape. We will never stay at this park again, primarly because of the employee that accused us of removing a back flow valve from the water. We camped at Pilot Knob RV Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

RPI rate. 8 miles to Yuma and any kind of a store. Lots of pull through spaces that are pretty close together. Gravel interior roads and level spaces with a concrete pad. Everything worked well. Friendly staff, some activities. The pool looked clean and well kept, but we didn't use it. Many people use this as a destination spot and stay all winter. Park is closed in summer. Would stay again.

We stayed 4 nights under RPI rate; close to Mexico. Park needs updating, but we would stay again. With RPI our rate was $12 with 50 amp service. We camped at Pilot Knob RV Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

Very friendly staff and a "homely" feel to the campground. Lots of activities offered. But the hot tub is still broken and we were here last year! No pickle ball or exercise room, which we require. It's a noisy site with highway 8 and the trains close by. Pretty good WiFi ($2 coupons). Close to Yuma and Mexico border. Okay for a couple of night's stopover. We camped at Pilot Knob RV Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

Friendly staff, but the site needs upgrading. Pool is closed due to inspection failure. Internet pretty good. Good pull-through sites. We camped at Pilot Knob RV Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

If you are looking for a park with enough water pressure to shower, this is not the park for you. All the pictures advertizing the park show the pool, which would be ok if they showed penguins swimming in it. It is only 78 degrees, too cold to stay in for more than a minute or so. Don't have maintenance check anything as they will charge you for his hourly rate. Besides being grumpy, this man should not be working in any position where he has contact with the public. We are only here because it is a membership park we were trying to utilize. Bad experience will not be back. We camped at Pilot Knob RV Resort in a Motorhome.

Dusty, dirt roads throughout park. Cement pads at sites, but at the far front of the parking area. Sites are very narrow and short. Staff is friendly. There is highway and train noise, but tolerable. Jacuzzi not working. WI-FI is with Tengonet so you might as well forget it - terrible service. We camped at Pilot Knob RV Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

There are some pretty narrow and short sites in this park. In the past we had always been assigned one of those. This time, however, we were given a site in the back. It was huge!! We loved it. We could only see two problems with this park. One was the number of machines in their laundry and the other was the HUGE (really huge) speed dips they seemed to have dug every few feet requiring you to travel 2 mph. We thought someone got carried away. Our Verizon and AT&T worked perfectly. You can ride ATVs directly from the park to the dunes or BLM land. We liked the park! We camped at Pilot Knob RV Resort in a Motorhome.

The first thing to remember is that they are on Mountain Time even though they are in the Pacific Zone. We arrived a few minutes after 3 p.m. and the office was closed and the gate was closed. We sat there blocking traffic on the road and finally took the chain off the gate and went through (we had reservations). The Security Guard then came running and yelling not to do that. He eventually checked us in, but we couldn't get WiFi until the next morning. Also he would not give us a site until we went out to the trailer and brought in the sewer chemical container so he could see it. The pull-through site we were given was so narrow we had to run over the patio to get into it (so did our neighbor). Highway and train noise is very evident. We stayed one night using Coast to Coast. We camped at Pilot Knob RV Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

We enjoyed this park for 2 nights in our MH. Close to Yuma for shopping before heading to Quartzsite. Volunteers very nice and friendly. Lots of empties so we did not feel the crowding. Imagine row by the office gets very tight. Nice long term spots. Close to activities and places to go. We would stay again. And yes, it's dusty. Hey, it's the desert.

Actually, the previous comments regarding proximity to the freeway didn't bother us. We considered it a plus because access to and from Yuma or Algodonas was easy. What we didn't like was the cramped spaces. They were definitely cramped. We felt like we needed a shoe horn to fit in. By the time folks had parked their RVs, their car/truck had to be parked sideways to fit in off the street. The sites had concrete pads but everything else was dirt. There's a nice clubhouse, small pool and other than that everyone was pretty friendly. The "4" rating is because we certainly enjoyed the full hookups and the location. We camped at Pilot Knob RV Resort in a Motorhome.

Pilot Knob RV Resort is an OK campground but it's unfortunately located immediately along Interstate 8, a major highway moving truck traffic into and out of southern California. We stayed in the back of the park so noise at night from the highway was minimized but none the less, it's still very noticeable inside a Class A Motor Home. All the streets are dirt/gravel and there's lots of dust but that's just part of being in the desert. Electric, water, and sewer services were adequate. Over-the-air TV reception from Yuma, AZ, is quite good and there are NO restrictions to satellite reception. Many of the sites have cement pads on which to sit in your lawn chair to enjoy the beautiful sunsets. There are few amenities in this park yet it's called a "resort", another stretch of the truth. Overall we enjoyed our stay and we had excellent Verizon Broadband and Cell Phone connectivity. We camped at Pilot Knob RV Resort in a Motorhome.

A DUSTY and NOISY park. There is a freeway and railroad tracks. There were several trains all night long. We stayed here with Resort Parks International. The staff is friendly and there are activities in the clubhouse. The pool and jacuzzi are clean. The pads are dirt and very narrow. There are cement patios. The roads are not paved. It is close to Algodones and Casino. We camped at Pilot Knob RV Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

This has to be the noisiest park we have ever been in. Although it is close to the freeway, it is the trains that scream out their whistles all night long that makes it hard to take. The pool was fine, but the hot tub was broken and had been for a really long time. Laundry was poor, as nothing dried, better to take your laundry out. The wireless was very poor and not available at your site. We were there under coast to coast and the "salesman" did nothing but knock our organization and told us that we should buy in to their group and ours would no longer be very welcome. The volunteer workers were wonderful but they were the only part of this park that was redeeming. We camped at Pilot Knob RV Resort in a Fifth Wheel.
