Great little place on the River!

We did a Friday-Monday extended weekend here. Great place, friendly staff, dog park and a short walk to the beach / cove area. We weren’t too fond of the 120° we experienced on our stay, but the cool water kept us all comfortable. We stayed in spot 12 and had no complaints it suited us perfectly!

Havasu camping.

We were looking for a spot at Havasu, all the Rv parks were full as well as all the State park campgrounds. Ranger at Lake Havasu State park gave us this location!! He said pretty much everything to the east of 95 was dispersed camping owned and operated by the Blm. (Check Blm map) There were a lot of people camping out here. Everything from families to boondockers. So many spaces to choose from. Pull offs all the way down the road. Rocks can be sharp, I blew a tire in one pull out. I liked this spot tremendously. It allowed us to stay in Havasu a little longer 😁. After 2 days of boondocking we got our spot at Cattail Cove.. Little BBQ spot on the corner of Mariposa and Rolling Hills is worth checking out. Pulled pork sandwiches are amazing 👌!

Hotter than hades

We stayed overnight in July and the temperature when we arrived was 113 degrees! As such, we were confined to our trailer. The price was very reasonable, $30.00 per night. Our site backed up to a large grassy area, but the heat had killed most of the grass. The sites are well spaced. The beach area on the Colorado River looked very inviting, but the ambient temperature prevented us from taking advantage of it. I can see this would be a great place in the winter, but not so great in the summer.

Pricey!

Not a bad RV park. Cost a little more than it should. Pretty small areas. Clean and well taken care of. In a hurry to check out we forgot to get our laundry out of the laundry room, called back a couple hours later after we realized it, mysteriously it was not there!🤬

Lake Havasu

Nice well kept state park campground. Bathrooms, showers. Water and power. No sewer at camp sites, but does have a sewer dump station. Has a cactus garden with small amphitheatre area.
Great beachy area with shade structure

Local review

This park is a hidden gem, a little rustic. Campsites built by CCC, old stone cabins, walls, and trails. There's RV parking away from park, a few campsites for small trailers, and beautiful tent sites.

Hostile Employee Allowed to Mistreat Guests

I sent a letter to the owners of CCRR to alert them of the gross misconduct of their front desk employee, Winnie. I didn't hear back. This is a high-alert-day-and-age when the rest of us have to be wary of disgruntled employees who cross the line by behaving verbally abusive and harassing. Unprovoked threats like:“In the future don’t you dare show up and expect me to make room for you…"(even though we had a text message from another employee confirming availability), and if we didn't like it,“Pack it up and hit the road- go on- hit the road!” are unforgivable. Based on past 1-star reviews, this mistreatment of guests has been ongoing and escalating. So dear owners… on behalf of all your paying customers, your employee's aggressive and inappropriate behavior should not ever be OUR problem. And, until you have made your RV park a safe, enjoyable and friendly place to stay we'll be skipping the high dose of hostility and spending our money with your competition. Haven’t you heard? Zero-tolerance for bullies!

Good stop in an area with few options

We did a quick overnight on our way south to Scottsdale. It's a tiny mom-and-pop place run by super nice folks. We were arriving on a Saturday and even though the office is closed that day, our voice mail request for a spot was met with a quick response. When we arrived, we were escorted to our spot, and told to just pay in the morning. 

The sites are quite close together with no tables but it's a cute little place with lots of common space to relax in-- a volleyball court, a fire pit and chairs, and lots of quirky metal art to enjoy. Definitely a good bit of road noise but not overwhelming. There are lots of permanent residents but didn't really didn't have the opportunity to interact with them during our short stay. 

Showers were spacious and clean. The stalls have coded door locks but can't be latched from the inside while you're in it. There's a magnetic"occupied" sign you can put out but that's really inadequate for feeling safe while showering. 

There are 4 old school agitator washing machines and 4 dryers, one of which was not heating so be sure to check on your loads so you don't waste time and money on a machine that isn't working properly. There is a decent waiting area with to hang out while you do laundry. 

We had breakfast in the cafe on site which was super convenient for getting back to our long haul.

Wonderful family weekend

Went up for a few days to disconnect from the reality of home and to spend some time together as a family. Tent camping - took us a minute to find a spot but we found an amazing space just a short walk to the bathrooms. There’s porta potty’s closer but my little girls wanted to use the nicer bathrooms. There’s tons of hiking, beautiful scenery, VERY friendly wildlife. Elk and deer are everywhere and aren’t afraid of people. The weather was wonderful.

Chillin’ by the river

Davis camp has gotten very populated over the years and gets really crowded, really quickly. If you want a nice spot, better get there early. Bathrooms were all either out of order or very dirty. Also, it is much more enjoyable with water toys (jet skis, boats, inflatables, etc) since there is not much more to do beside hang out by the river or take a ride out on it. The bugs get pretty insane as the sun goes down.
