If you must have glitz and glamour - stay away. This is a great desert c/g. Many miles to walk, great place for bike riding. The people are all family. Free laundry. We spent Thanksgiving here and had a potluck dinner with some wonderful folks. For the price - it's a diamond. For the atmosphere - it's gold. We can't wait to go back. The little town of Gila Bend is fun, not much there but several good places to eat. A little ways out of town is a fresh water shrimp farm. A short drive to beautiful National parks. Loved it!
It is very quite and peaceful. It is the perfect stopping point for a couple of days on your way to California. The rates are excellent. And the best thing, free laundry! The camp host is very friendly and so were all the other campers! You will not get any TV without satellite, but there is a lounge with cable. The sites do not have cable and have not for years. Or, you could just attend the nightly bombfire and talk with other campers. It was a short stay but we really enjoyed it. Oh yea, take bottle water with you. Each site has a water purfying unit for drinking water. It puts out 1-2 gallons a day. And buy the water before you head out because there is no major retailer in the direct area. The park used to be a mobile home park so the spots are very large, pull through, no problem areas with lots of space between sites.
