Hospitality on the river

Walter's Camp is a great launch point up the Colorado River. I don't own a boat but if I did this would be a regular spot. The drive in is a couple miles on dirt road. Take it slow if you have to but chances are you can get there just fine! You may get some excitement from other guests enjoying the river but all in all this is a relaxing campground with hospitable hosts. The grounds are well maintained and the local campground dogs will greet you with open paws. Bring your dog and fishing pole and head into their general store for some cold beer. You'll have a good time! P.s. 5mph speed limit within the campgrounds is necessary due to foot traffic, especially from kids playing.

Beautiful and remote

Once you leave I-8 it’s about 35-55 minutes back to major services. I hear Fischer’s Landing has a new convenience store. The office has beer, soft drinks and a few choices of hard stuff. The RV pads are cement and level. Our rig is 24 feet and we fit very well on the pad. This is a military only facility so you must be either active duty or retired to utilize. The description says “full hookup” but alas, it is only electric and water. The electric service is only 50 amp (I noted that in a prior review, thank you for the warning). An 50 to 30 adapter is a good thing to have and it worked flawless. The water pressure is very adequate. I would definitely make this a come back to place. The park staff were extremely helpful. When we left, we turn right at the access road to Fischer’s Landing. The dump station is in the screen building with all the golf carts, this is to the left of the store. The screen door is unlocked. You will find the key for the dump station padlock hanging by a 2” piece of pvc pipe. There is a lock box next to it. The cost is $5.00 to dump. It’s on the Pooh honor system, which I found very cool. There is also attached non potable water hose for tank flush out. A bit inconvenient if staying a month but a day or two was no problem.

Leave city life behind.

Come slow things down at this wonderfully secluded campground. About 6 miles off the main highway down a rough dirt road lies this hidden gem. Whether you’ve got a boat to launch, a travel trailer, or a good ol’ fashion tent, you’re welcome here! Located right on the beautiful Colorado River! Heads up, this place gets packed during the warm months!

Right on the Colorado River

Easy in and out off the 10 freeway, large rv friendly, river spots back up to a grassy area on the river, cabin and RV rentals available, laundry room, clean facilities and friendly staff. Right on the California/ AZ border, close to Blythe for groceries and restaurants. Great place for off road vehicles since you can drive to the desert trails in about 2 minutes and ride for hours. All sites are full hook up, streets are gravel, sites have a cement pad and the rest is gravel and can accommodate even the longest set ups.

Great for what it is

This was an unexpected one-nighter and we lucked out with a water-front site! Don't expect a lot - it's a parking lot more or less - but it gets the job done and it's better than others out there even though its a bit pricy.

We showed up on Xmas day so the manager was nice enough to call and let us know where we could get our passes & how to get in. There are some cute little cabins and a rec hall (closed for covid) and they seem to have a little community here. There's even a tiny dog park which they created a dog bath inside - very thoughtful! There was full hookups at the site so that was a nice luxury for us.

The river is a little rundown and sad looking - but people were trying to fish anyway. And although the sites didn't have a campfire, there was a group one right on the beach with a bunch of wood. Wish we had seen that earlier! Lots of dogs but they all behaved and mine got to splash around in the water. 

Very clean restrooms although they are asking that people don't use them right now (covid) which could be why they were so clean.

It’ll do

The spaces are close together. They offer full hookups and beachfront. There are showers and laundry room. Rates were quite high though, paid over $40 for one night of super cramped parking.

Serviceable for 1 night off season

I bet this place is hopping during the summer, but in mid-November it felt sleepy in an abandoned sort of way. Everything was just fine; easy check in, level & clean spot not to tight. The drive in felt sketchy, definitely wondering what we were getting ourselves into. But once through the gate it felt safe enough. Pretty beachfront, terrible playground.

Feeling tired & run down - A lot of Year round folks living there.

The Colorado River was lovely.  Sunsets nice too.  Mid-October -- still need your A/C full tilt.  A lot of year round folks in RVs it seemed.  So a bit of a different culture than those campers that are coming and going.  Weekend parties were a thing!  These folks knew each other --- so it was their little town --- we were camping in.  We had reserved site 95 months in advance and they put us in site 107, next to a perm resident, boat ramp and garbage area.  We were not pleased.  It seems on that end of the property the dogs all did their business too, as the smell was with us all week.  Looked like a good place for jet skiers and loud boats -- and partiers -- but not all that welcoming to those just coming through for a week.   Again water was nice --- with a strong current mind you, and sunsets were awesome.   We will not go again.  But would stop by for 1 night if we were driving through.  People in front office very nice and polite etc… during reservations --- and club house facilities were adequate, dated and clean.

Wonderfull hidden gem.

About 6 miles off the paved road. Roads were graded last week and pretty decent drive, although its posted that 4x4 is sometimes recommended. Host Tabatha is very friendly and helpful. Sites with full hookup, and you can get at waters edge if you Have you Generator. Here on weekdays end of September and very serene. Just what I was looking for.

It’s Blythe.... by the river!!!

Not a nice resort- but if it had a facelift- would be a amazing because of the water access and Mexico like vibes.
