Well maintained, ample sites. Workers are doing a great job keeping trees pruned for the back ins. Thoughtful registration gave us a site with shade. Electric is constant, no shut off. Suggest a charge protector on your rig. We camped at Pilot Knob RV Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

Rate reflects ROD membership and fee for 50 amp service. Came to Pilot Knob due to proximity to Los Algodones, MX dentist visit. Park was dusty, barren, and pool and pool area were not clean. Hot tub had 1 man and 2 children in it and there was no additional room available. It did not look clean either. Check-in was expedient, however requested site facing east and was given one facing due west. Several very hot days. Extension needed to hook up electric as post was on the passenger side of the rig. We will not stay again unless visiting the dentist. We camped at Pilot Knob RV Resort in a Motorhome.

Price reflects C2C membership. Campground was very easy to find There is an additional resort fee, I'm not sure what that is for. It is a fine campground, but doesn't really merit extra "resort" fee. This is a standard "parking lot" style campground. There were some trees throughout the campground. The campground easily handles big rigs. Sites are close together, but there was plenty of room in the site for the truck, 5th wheel and jeep. Gravel roads through the campground. Each camp site is gravel. Sites are all very level. Each site had a small concrete patio and picnic table. The picnic tables are just tables-no seats. Most tables appeared to be in desperate need of repair. There is a pool and hot tub area. Both the pool and hot tub are very small. The pool heater was broken the entire week we were there, so it was too cold to use the pool. Good Verizon coverage. Easy to get DirecTV satellite. We camped at Pilot Knob RV Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

Wow! What a difference a few months make, this park has made a change for the BETTER! The staff was wonderful and very accomodating, even allowed us to store our motorcycle when we went to Mexico for the week!!! They accept visitor mail and packages, no site # needed. All the facilities have been repaired and if something does break, maintenance is right there to fix it. My only lingering complaint is the cleanliness of pool and hot tub, pool could use a good vacuum, hot tub probably drain and start over. The sites are relatively wide with a nice size concrete pad, fhu. Some pull throughs, 30 or 50 amp not always both but they are trying to upgrade that. Dog run, nice garden sitting area, some social activities, beautiful views of sunset and the very best night view of the church at the Center of the World, Felicity. We enjoyed our 1 week stay so much we extended for another week. Nice to see a park strive to become better and this one is exceeding!! We camped at Pilot Knob RV Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

Didn't have our reservation, didn't put us on requested pull through, electric wasn't working properly, swimming pool and hot tub were not open due to heaters being broken, dryers were also broken. We camped at Pilot Knob RV Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

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.

Due to reduction in staff a significant amount of activities has been reduced from prior years. The staff is now mostly volunteer. But their attitude is great. We have stayed at this park for several months over the past 3 years. Will stay here again. We camped at Pilot Knob RV Resort in a Motorhome.

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 camped at Pilot Knob RV Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

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.

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.
