We visited Needles in May 2018 and stayed at the Desert View RV park for 2 nights. It is the most beautiful RV park we stayed at during our entire 2 month trip. The pool looked wonderfully cool and clean the laundry room was very clean and the machines worked as they should. The RV sites were perfect because they were so private. The blooming oleander bushes were beautiful and separated each site from the ones next door. If we are ever in the area again, we will definitely stay there.
We looked at other parks near by & they had the best shade/privacy.
Everyone was nice & though fairly full the park was pretty quiet.
The pool was clean and refreshing in the 100 degree heat.
It was fairly easy to get into our site with our 44 foot toy hauler.
I would stay here again if passing thru Needles again.
Needles is on the Colorado River at Interstate 40. This puts you at the intersection of California, Arizona and Nevada. This is a nice RV park with mostly pull through sites. There are mature shrubs and trees separating the sites giving a degree of privacy but the site itself is fairly narrow with no patio or fire pit. There are the usual facilities: full hookups, bathrooms, showers, pool, community room etc. The bathrooms are spotless and well maintained. Most driveways and site pads are gravel. There is free WiFi but it was spotty from our site but reliable from the community room. Good service and friendly people. We paid $195 for a week.
Very quiet location near I40. Beautiful palm trees, well maintained and clean with thick oleanders between sites. Concreate patio pad at each site with plenty of room for slide outs. We took a drive and looked at the other RV parks in the area. We would stay here again. The office staff were very nice.
What a beautiful park!
We planned on staying here for just one night, but we ended up staying for a week. There are tall oleanders in between each site that provide a lot of shade, one of the few rv resorts I've seen that actually have shade and some privacy in between each spot. They have a dog run, a little fenced in area to let your dogs run around, and a lot of people in the park seem to have dogs they walk around, very dog friendly. The community seems very active and friendly, there was a pot luck for St. Patrick's Day which was an awesome surprise. The bathrooms, shower and pool were all very clean and well maintained, we wouldn't have made it through the heat without that pool!
Also, there is really pretty landscape around the park with mountains in the distance all around you, needless to say the sunsets here are gorgeous! We will definitely be staying here again.
My wife and I planned a stopped at Desert View RV Resort for 2 nights and ended up staying 2 weeks. The park operators are very friendly and helpful. The owner of the park is a good person who really cares about his place and tries to ensure your needs are met. The spaces were plenty big for our 27' rig with one slide out. Every spot have trees separating each RV from one another, which gives good privacy. There are a lot of activities to do with other RVer's in the park. They put on different types of tournaments through out the week. Most were snowbirds escaping the north cold. Everyone we met were so friendly. This park is very pet friendly with ample room to walk your pets. The spaces were level and easily accessible. Bullhead/ Laughlin are about 25 miles away, but an easy drive. There are several places to eat in the area. Satellite is easy to acquire. The only downfall with this park is the internet service (slow), which they admit on the phone. They have great rates when staying a week or longer. We will stay here again when back in the area.
Nice open park with trees between sites for added privacy. No tall trees, so satellite access is available from most sites. Spaces are a little narrow for larger rigs with multiple slides. Would stay here again.
