“Free camping, beautiful location, little noisy due to trains”

Reviewed Dec 20, 2017

Overall Rating

Perfect location if you just want to stay somewhere over night without spending money.
Stayed there end of November 2017.

Things to complain about:

  • Train noise during entire night. Trains using there horn all the time;
  • Bathrooms were already closed for the season (why?)

Little off the highway.

“Nice Level Spot Overlooking the Lake”

Reviewed Dec 14, 2017

Overall Rating

I don't think you can ask for much more from a free spot. We were here in mid December and the night sky was fantastic. I'm a train buff, so it's just a few miles into town to watch one of the busiest mainlines in America. The town is famous because of the Eagles song, "Take it Easy", but there is a hotel here that is an incredible pie... more

“Pull thrus/50amp/ on the lake”

Reviewed Dec 03, 2017

Overall Rating

This place is great for a few days stay. We showed up around dusk (during the super moon) & it was the best view!! NO ONE has reviewed the amazing "pull-thru" (by the bathhouse) it's the gem in this park! FREE 50 AMP, AND SEWAGE. (HINT:( it looks like the power lines to the pole are cut, but they are not! Have fun folks!

“Quiet Oasis in the Arizona Desert”

Reviewed Oct 18, 2017

Overall Rating

Great water views, sites right on the water, FREE and reasonable cell signal; a great fulltimer's combo. We arrived on a Tuesday evening and there were still a few spots available, include one right on the water. By the looks of things, folks who are here are setup her for the long haul. Here's a tip... if you have a long rig (ou... more

“Standin' On The Corner”

NAVIGATING: This city park is a short drive outside of town, with free camping for up to 2 weeks. There are two entrances on either side of the reservoir. The south entrance is only for day use, and your navigation system may direct you there. For RV's, you'll want to go to the north entrance, which has quite a bit of space for boond... more

“It's free which is nice”

Reviewed Apr 24, 2017

It's nice that the city provides this for free. When we were there it was very busy. There are 10 spots in the upper campground (4 pull through and 6 back in). We arrived about 5:30 or 6PM and we nabbed the last site (back in) in the upper lot. The pull through sites are paved and appear mostly level. The back in sites a... more

“Fine & Free Local Campground”

Reviewed Apr 21, 2017

Overall Rating

We stayed here for a week in April and had a fine time. There are pull through and back in traditional sites in the 'upper' area but we parked parallel to the shore along the 'lower' area - it was more private and had water front! The lake was used pretty heavily and there are a ton of fish jumping in it. Lot's of birds here so th... more

“Peaceful free camping next to a lovely river -- great kayaking!”

Reviewed Mar 01, 2017

Overall Rating

We stayed here in September 2016 and really enjoyed our time. The road was pretty rocky on the way in but it was fairly short. Saw beautiful sunsets and sunrises and took our kayak up the river. We didn't have to paddle too far (maybe 15 minutes) before we found some really fun boulders to hang out on and jump up of! If you do this -... more
