Get ready for upscale camping at Desert RV Resort, where restrooms, showers, and laundry are always pristine and the sparkling swimming pool is a popular hangout when the summer temperatures soar.
RVers are in for a treat when they roll into this top-notch campground with full hook-ups to electricity (30/50 amp), water, and sewer. The big rigs are welcome with cozy, level gravel sites and thick, leafy bushes offering privacy between your neighbors. Internal roads are gravel and relatively easy to navigate with smooth, pull-through and back-in choices. You can access the Internet at the resort office. The daily rate for the campground is $44.
Pets get lucky with an open-door policy allowing them to stay at the camp. Dogs are required to stay on a leash, and there is a limit of three fur-babies per site. You’ll need to bring doggy bags so you can clean up after your pooch, and aggressive dogs will not gain entry. There are plenty of wide open spaces for daily walks, plus a dog run where woofers can play with their toys or other friendly pups.
The peaceful, desert ambiance offers a secluded place to rest, although the nearby highway and train track can be heard at night. During the day, campers are busy playing horseshoes, soccer, or shooting hoops. A recreation hall is ideal for indoor games while communal barbeques allow guests to cook outdoors.
The Colorado River is a walk away with opportunities to fish, swim, or sunbathe on the sandy shore. Get set for good times on the water in a kayak, jet-ski or boat. The city of Needles, named after the bordering mountain peaks, exudes a magical, desert charm with the infamous Route 66 running through the main street.
Hikers looking to explore the desert mystique should head 13 miles out of Needles to the Dead Mountains Wilderness Area where trails are waiting to be walked. Take the trek to see Mystic Maze, a fascinating series of patterns on the ground created over 600 years ago by Native Americans as a path to the afterlife.
Setting up camp at Desert View RV Resort sets you on a path to adventure with surrounding lakes and a river for everyday fun. The resort is open all year, with holidays and summer being the busiest.
