“A laid-back Camp off the beaten track”

Reviewed Mar 21, 2018

Overall Rating

We arrived here in early December, planning a brief stay en route to the ‘RV Mecca’ of Quartzsite, AZ. As it turned out, we came to really like this quirky place and have basically made it our Home Base for the Winter, only breaking away for an eight day stint in Quartzsite to get the ‘Boon Docking’ experience on BLM land. (That was during the much-ballyhooed ‘Rubber Tramp Rendezvous’ in January.) Regarding the costs: the $14 fee will get you a decent site requiring minimal leveling, with hook-ups to electrical power and water. Please note, however, that due to Nitrate and Nitrites in the water as a result of local agricultural practices, this water is not potable. No matter. There is potable water available in the nearby (3 miles) town of Salome for $0.25/gallon. That water is made pure through a ‘Reverse Osmosis’ process. There is a Dump Station at the camp. (No Charge for Campers) There is also a Shower Block ($2) which provide the luxury of nice hot showers for those of you inclined to use your RV shower as a place to hang clothes and store things like the dog’s water bowl and Berkey water filtration system, as we do. (LOL!). There is also a separate Toilet Block on site, although the sinks there do not offer Hot water. Site fees become more economical if you plan on staying longer. The $14 Nightly fee goes down to $70/week, or $160/month (plus $0.16 per kWh for electricity.). If you manage your electricity as we do, by minimizing use during the day and offsetting that with solar power, you can easily camp here for an average of $8/Day all up, (including the extra $ spent on showers, potable water, and propane.). There is a small Laundry located in town, as well as an efficient propane vendor. Both of those are located at the ‘Salome Market’ operated by a friendly Korean couple. The Market also has a gas station. Although the town is small, it does have a good family-owned garage/auto supply outfit. We took both our motorhome and ‘toad’ there for routine maintenance and servicing & I was quite pleased both with their work and the price. There is also a ‘mobile RV tech’ guy who can come out to the Camp and do work on your RV and we have been pleased with his efforts as well. There are a couple of local watering holes in Salome (Don’s Cactus Bar on nearby Route 60 is a local favorite) and several days a week vendors set up at a market area in town to sell everything from fresh vegetables to new and used pots and pans, clothing, Mexican food, and all kinds of odds and ends. Across the road from the Camp is the La Paz County Library, Community Center, and Food Bank. It offers free WiFi, books, DVDs, and hosts a number of special events, including great Lunches once a week for $4, although I personally have never taken advantage of that. The Camp ‘Club House’ and Office also has a decent selection of books on hand to borrow, plus coffee, ice, and treats are available, and the Camp Hosts are always friendly, helpful, and informative. The main draw here is that Centennial Camp is known as a wonderful little ‘9 Hole’ Golf destination and a great place to camp if you come to enjoy the many ATV and ‘Off Road’ opportunities which abound in this area. Most of the visitors here are ‘Snowbirds’ from Idaho, Montana, Oregon, Colorado, Washington, and British Columbia, although there is a solid contingent of Arizonians who come here as well - usually Thursday through Sunday for ATV and golf activities. Since my wife and I neither play golf or have an ATV, what was the draw for us? Mainly it was the opportunity to Camp in a desert venue where there is a lot of space (15 is the most number of campsites we have seen occupied, not counting the four or five occupied by Camp Hosts up by the Clubhouse) offering a multitude of trails to hike on with our dogs and the freedom to just be as social or as isolated as one wants. For major food shopping runs we go to either Parker or Wickenburg. Both are located about an hour away. I have gone on numerous ‘Big’ hikes in the area with ‘Leo’ (one of our two canines), and most of those hikes have begun and ended at our RV door. Highlights include Campfires with or without neighbors....star gazing (we caught the Total Lunar Eclipse in January!) in a beautifully Dark Night sky....hearing a chorus of coyotes calling out to each other in the late afternoon or early morning hours...meeting and getting to know fellow campers....and basically, enjoying a place that is not crammed next to a busy highway with sites stacked so close together that it is like an ‘RV Ghetto’ (LOL!) Centennial Park has truly become a highlight of our Full Time RV Camping Experience to date. Our travels began in West Virginia more than five months ago. Leaving tomorrow for points east and north. We will miss Centennial Park, but...will come back, I’m sure.

“Reasonable rates, halfway to Tucson”

Reviewed Jan 25, 2018

Overall Rating

Pulled into the park right before dusk. There were "long- termers" or possibly camp hosts on the main road/ entrance, and a few spots in between but we opted to drive around the loop. Up on top of the hill in the back end were dry camping spots, (also the more seculded) a few fire pits were just getting going and I believe the rates posted were 8 bucks. It was kinda busy for a mid week stay, but it fit our needs perfectly for a stopping point headed to Tucson for a music festival. Last year we stayed in Tonopah, right off the 10 which was exactly half way to Pima County. I recommend not staying in Tonopah due to the sky high rates and smell of chicken shit that will gag you when you step outside! Instead, check this lil spot. You'll be glad! Happy Trails Folks! Love&Light!!
