“YO! Where the party at?”
The party is right here! All your SoCal friends with their side-by-sides and loud music are all right here. Pirate's Den doesn't lie when the slogan on the staff shirts says, "A sunny spot for shady people!". Believe it. We were meeting up with my full-timing parents and this was the place they picked. Why?! The monthly rate, right on the river, and Lake Havasu City close-ish by seemed like a great deal. We ask a lot of questions prior to booking a site. They kept trying to put us into a site (74A) and kept talking about how a trailer wouldn't fit in there, but (somehow) a 34' bus would fit just fine. Upon further questioning, we found out that we would have to pull forward into the spot, because of a hanging tree, which would negate a river view and would also make it a little awkward because we would be staring right into the windshield of the rig parked behind us. So, if they tell you a site that has a letter behind it, please know there is something a little fishy about it. The rest of the sites, although facing the river, are tight. Your neighbor will be on their patio right next to your rig, so when they play Toby Keith's "Red Solo Cup" four times in a row on a Wednesday night, all singing at the top of their lungs, well, grab a cup, because you're part of the party now, too. It rained a lot while we were there in December and the soil in the campground must be clay, because it became a red, muddy fiasco of watching people trying to drive, walk, or get their rigs out. Deep, slick, sucking mud everywhere. There is a restaurant on premise, The Black Pearl, that serves an awesome breakfast. The best biscuits and gravy I've ever had. Having the restaurant onsite was really nice. We enjoyed the outdoor bar, as well. The sunsets were amazing every single night. Since we stayed here for the month, we had mail delivered. A word to the wise: Know exactly what mail/purchases are coming here, when, and look to see who signed for it on your tracking number. When we asked for our mail, we were immediately told on several occasions they didn't have anything for us, when we would literally stand on our tiptoes, peak behind the desk, and (knowing what we had purchased) would point and say, "That's what we ordered. It's right there.", to which they would reply, "Oh", with no apology. Everything had our name on it. They just seem so incredibly indifferent to trying to do a good job. The front office actually sent one of our larger purchases to the restaurant and had it in the storage room there. We kept asking, and asking for it, and they kept denying and denying, and finally we told them what date it had arrived and who had signed for it. Turns out it was in the storage room for the restaurants use. So, be on top of it with your mail and purchases here. There is a laundry room. It's very small with four washers/four dryers. You have to pay a $40 deposit for the key to the laundry room. Typically, there is always one washer down and it's not their fault and they can't refund your money because a completely separate company owns the washers/dryers on their property. What?! The water will stain your whites. I highly recommend a portable water softener because the water here is terrible. We have Verizon. Our bars came up as 1X when arriving (although they swore up and down on the phone that Verizon worked really well) and we pulled 1-2 4G with our weBoost. We did enjoy many of the four wheeling trails. The area is scenic. We had a blast doing the Jeep trail to the Desert Bar. If I was a boater or side-by-side owner, and wanted to have a crazy party week in the summer, this is the place I would stay. And I think that's exactly what they cater to.
