Has a great mid-century Florida vibe. As everyone mentions, the walls of oleander bushes between sights are the best. Privacy from your neighbors and also beautiful. Also lots of citrus trees and palm trees. Great site if you're a birder - doves, quails, vireos, nighthawks. Level site, everything was clean and tidy. Staff very friendly. Full cell service for ATT - can see 2 or 3 cell towers from the park.

It was towards the end of April and it was HOT! The park is well maintained and clean, a great stop when traveling Hwy 40 east or west. Nice staff. Easy park to navigate around. Conveniently located off the highway with very little highway noise. The downsides are: the town of Needles does not offer much, the closest grocery stores and decent restaurants were in Arizona, which is about 13-19 miles. Go to Arizona for gas. WIFI was pretty much non-existent and cell coverage was weak.

Lots of road noise from the highway but it didn't bother us. Mostly class A motorhomes and very large trailers. No picnic tables on the sites.Apparently near the Laughlin, NV casinos, but we didn't go there. On historic Rt 66. Apparently, there are many special events for snowbirds from Oct - May. Pool, library (with books and puzzles),.We ate at the Riverside Cafe on the Colorado River, a very friendly, local restaurant/bar. Good food at a reasonable price. Fun relaxed atmosphere.

    Not too crowded a lot of rigs but not a lot of people. Took advantage of the pool to cool off and spots all have some shade. One night quick stopover right off I-40. Gave AAADiscount.

Not much in the area, but we just needed a couple of nights to break up our drive. We like the tall bushes in between each site. The KOA next door did not have the bushes and the sites were closer together. If deciding between the 2, this one is much more a private and I think cheaper too!

The pool area was spotlessly clean, with an outdoor shower and bathrooms. The park is about a mile to the river, which was a little disappointing. Wish it was closer. And there was no picnic table or fire pit or grill at our space but we did have all utilities and concrete pad.

The hedges between the sites offer tons of privacy and quite a bit of shade. The manager and maintenance man were both very kind. The grounds are well-maintained and very clean. We spent our days in the Jeep, taking advantage of the OHV trails on the southeastern edge of Mojave National Preserve (map available on the preserve’s website), and checking out the wildlife in the desert (mostly snakes, lizards, jackrabbits). The desert isn’t for everyone but can be a lot of fun if you’re feeling a little adventurous. Would recommend 100%!

There is one decent little restaurant in town and that is it! At least 30 minute drive to grocery store in Fort Mohave, with more to do in Bull Head City and Laughlin, AZ. Gas is much cheaper in AZ as well. With that said, we are pulling a 44' 5th wheel. It was easy getting into the park, which is right off of I-40 and check in was also easy, office was new and clean. Our bill was $30 more than expected because they somehow forgot to add a "bed tax" to our bill. We were escorted to our site, which was an easy, level, pull through site with a large cement patio. We barely fit in without over extending into the roadway at 44'. There is crazy amount of privacy between the sites with huge, 15' tall bushes. This made it somewhat difficult to get to our connections and extend the slides without scrapping the sides of the rig, but we made it work. There are beautiful palm trees and plenty of lighting at night. The clubhouse is quite antiquated and the pool is nothing fancy. Laundry was clean and the machines worked well. Small, fenced in dog area. They offered free Wifi but the password they gave us never worked. Happy hour on Friday nights and some cards during the day. The term "resort" may be a stretch. If this park were in a different town, I would probably stay there again.

Even just driving to my spot, I could see that the pictures of this park that are posted are really misleading. Perhaps the spots on the perimeter of the park are nice and open, but the area of the park where I stayed was more like a crowded, cluttered, loud, rude, low-income neighborhood. From the moment that I pulled my rig (a 25' Airstream) into my spot, there were at least three other people from various other spots yelling and rolling their eyes as they attempted to give me unsolicited driving instructions on pulling in. The employee from the resort just sat in his golf cart and did not attempt to intervene in what was basically verbal assault. Meanwhile, two of the spots across from mine had large trucks parked in front of their rigs, which extended into the street and prevented me from pulling into my area safely. I was unclear as to whether it was the owners of these trucks yelling at me to turn every which way but in. After finally pulling in to my spot, the large overgrown foliage on either side of my area prevented me from using any of the awnings and made it extremely difficult to handle hooking up. Again, I have an Airstream--no slides, and just about as narrow of a rig as there is, and I did not have enough lateral room. The sides to all sides were cluttered with several vehicles each, and the row across from my spot was almost entirely private properties--so small shanty type houses with unbelievable numbers of grills, spare tires, broken outdoor furniture, lights, trash, etc. I included a photo of the site behind mine, as an example of the overgrowth and the number of alternative vehicles most sites had. Note that this image does not include the tow vehicle for this particular rig.

Was in the middle of the park but still had nice desert views above/between other rigs. Well-maintained pool and club-house. Extremely friendly and helpful staff -- thanks Natalie! Nice neighborhood feel -- there appeared to be a significant number of snow-birds there (all very friendly), and the clubhouse had a series of weekly social activities posted. I will definitely stay there again when passing through.

Upon arrival, there are wide roads from the interstate and finding the park is easy. We checked in and got an escort to our spot from a very friendly man. The pull-thru spot we had was level and wide. Some people were able to fit their tow vehicle on the side of their rig during their stay but we parked horizontally in front with no issues. Our spot was also facing the quiet desert on one side and the pool on the other. Each site has bushes on either side for privacy.We were really digging the pool (that had balls and a hoop) and the bathrooms right by the pool were clean with hot showers. Very well maintained. There was also a rec room right by the pool with tonsss of games, ping pong, basketball... all kinds of fun things with an even cleaner bathroom in that building. There's also a kitchen in the building that's open 24/7 and a big map where you can put a pin in where you're from. Laundry room is on the other side of the rec room and is clean and well maintained as well.The closest grocery store or gas station is right over the river in Arizona with insanely cheap gas prices and it's a fun drive... All in all, great place. The only issue (which clearly isn't their fault..) is the tonsss of red ants in the gravel at our site. I sprayed bug killer around all of our tires and hook ups and they didn't come back but be cautious.
