If you want full hookups just outside Great Basin NP, this is the closest choice. We'll pack the generator and conserve on water usage next time and stay in one of the in-park campgrounds. "Pull through" sites are in groups of 4: 2 vehicles per lane, shared utilities are laid out more for motor homes with everything mid-ships. Bathrooms were closed (backed up toilets) for a couple of days. We were 1 of 3 campers in this campground on a Holiday weekend. Large rocks / gravel spaces, not leveled. Plenty of shade trees. WiFi worked OK. Couple of stray dogs (camp dogs?) ran around a lot doing their dog things (sniffing, begging, wetting on hookups, meeting other campers' unleashed dogs). Did see a great horned owl swooping through looking for supper one night which was cool. The bar was open and the manager and locals were SUPER friendly! But you can camp somewhere else, save some dough, enjoy your stay in Great Basin, and still hang out at the bar if that's what you're in to.

We hadn't been to the Havasu / Parker area before and chose this park as a base camp for exploring. We were very happy with our site, nice and level, shady, good views of the Colorado river. Our site didn't have the sewer hookup, so the price seemed on the high side taking that into consideration (although we knew that when making the reservation so can't complain much). In comparison to several other options up and down the Parker strip, we would likely stay here again if we came back through. AT&T signal strength was good in the site. Local custom seems to be to walk through each others sites. Maybe they all knew each other already, or were less grouchy than I am!

If you know all you're getting is a place to park the RV and you're entirely self-sufficient, the relatively high rating makes sense. The roads are in fairly bad shape, including the approach access, but it helps keep the speeds down, so was fine by us. I didn't see any sites that were level side to side or front to back. We actually moved around in our site after maxing out the tongue jack. BUT, it's a superb location at the edge of Joshua Tree, with direct access to several hiking trails, and made a great base camp to explore the rest of the National Park. Very clean restrooms, no showers, clean dump area with two drains and fresh water fill. If we pass through again, this is on our list for sure.

Nice park with lots of amenities, more geared to the Summer visitor in that regard. Too pricey overall for our style of RVing but it suited our needs for location this trip. Clean.

Lovely park, nice long pull throughs, spacing between sites was nicely private and well planned. As others have mentioned, the hookups can be in awkward location depending on how you pull in. The biggest complaint I have is that the sewer covers were put in backwards in most spots. Not all, which makes me think the contractor wasn't paying attention or didn't know any better. But if you use a 90 degree elbow connector from your hose to the drain pipe gasket, be prepared to run your hose around to make the bend. Other than that, it was quiet (except for the coyotes!), clean, peaceful, and exactly what we were looking for in Anza-Borrego.

A very well kept NFS park. No services to speak of. We love staying here though. Generators allowed. Longer rigs need to watch the dip when exiting, the drive crosses a couple of low spots and we've seen some folks bottom out.

We're not really "Resort" campers but tried a "staycation" and thoroughly enjoyed the two pools, nice shady premium spot, and watching the comings and goings of a lot of rental units over weekend. Rate reflects a Good Sam discount and is a little steeper than our usual spend. Overall, a very nice facility.

This campground suffers from over-use and under-maintenance. Several folks roll or sneak in and use it as a day-use picnic area and treat it like the maid's coming by later to pick up for them. Trash in site, on trails, between sites. Roads are overgrown with trees and bushes scraping your rig every where you turn. People doing dishes at the fresh water spigots is never a good sign, bees collected there which made it a challenge to top up on water. When they close the campgrounds on the other side of the mountain next year for remodeling, we'll be looking for somewhere else to cool off on weekends.

Given the location and scenery we loved it here. They have rebuilt the bathrooms in loop A & B, they are nice and clean so far, I hope our fellow campers keep them that way. Campground was full all three nights we were there in the middle of an August heatwave and didn't have any power issues (30 Amp service). Place is pretty booked up through Thanksgiving, and we felt lucky to have been able to stay there this summer even with the heat. No showers, but that's part of why we have the trailer.

Overall a nice place. A little on the pricey side considering its premium spot is lake view not lake front. No shade and intermixed with permament house trailers, but well kept.

Very friendly management, quiet park, clean area and facilities. A great place to overnight, or to base camp for Zion as we did. We will stay here again. Price reflects Good Sam discount.
