Stayed here in a 45' motorhome. The staff made us feel so welcome from the moment we arrived. What a great park!

This large park has a mix of open RV spaces and fixed "park models". It is located a few miles west of the town of El Centro. We are not golfers but they have what appears to be a very nice 9 hole golf course on-site. There are a nice variety of facilities and activities including pool/spa, on-site caf,, exercise room, etc. There is free WiFi which we found to be responsive and reliable. The bathroom and laundry are well maintained and clean. If you are here for a short stay and want to use the laundry, be aware that you must purchase a card for $5 then add value to it. I would suggest that the park management offer to loan a card (for a deposit of $5) to those staying for a short period. We paid an average of $40 per night with a combination of Passport America and Good Sam.

This place is a joke! They tell you that they have cable (I specifically asked over phone before booking). Cable didn't work at my site. So, maintenance hooked me up to the site next to me. It worked, but only 5 channels. I talk to the manager and he tried to blame it on TV. After talking with him further, he slipped and said that they don't have the proper equipment and they're trying to get it fixed. I guess if all else fails, blame it on your guests' equipment instead of yours... If you plan on using their shower facilities, don't do it when it's dark outside. The lights turn off every five minutes. No motion sensors. You'll have to walk to the door and press the switch each time. I've been traveling across the country for 7 months (using the GoodSam App.) and this is BY FAR the most misleading rating I've seen at an RV Park. If you plan on staying a night or two, the grounds are kept well. However, if you have any issues don't expect the manager to accept responsibility!

We stayed 3 nights. Excellent Park. Big Rig Friendly. Easy to get into and out of Pull Thru spaces. Friendly Staff. Quiet (although locals say that the Blue Angels practice their Air Show in Jan&Feb and it can be noisey). Nice Cafe on site. Nine Hole golf course is wonderful (affordable and easy to get tee time). This park deserves its high Good Sams ratings. Loved the evening entertainment around the firepit- local music group and nice conversations with the local residents. We look forward to coming back here next year and staying longer.
