Campbell Cove RV Resort, October 20 to November 20, 2015

Rating: 3 on a scale of 5

Location: This RV park is on Industrial Boulevard with businesses all around. So, if you are looking for a more serene setting, stay elsewhere. Having said that, it was a convenient location to access all of the interesting stuff there is to do in and around Lake Havasu City. And it is only a couple of blocks from Lake Havasu State Park that is located along the shores of Lake Havasu (we enjoyed spending time there on multiple occasions). The famous London Bridge and Bridgewater Channel are only a couple of miles away. And Highway 95, the primary corridor to the attractions we visited to the north and south of the city, was also only about two blocks from Campbell Cove. Another positive about the location is that we could see the lake and amazingly beautiful sunsets from the RV resort.

Lot size: This was a major negative for us. The length of the lot was fine, but our neighbors were very close. Since we were here for a month, there were lots of folks that came and went on both sides of us. One couple had their picnic table directly under our slideout. This is where they went to smoke several times a day and it would waft into our motorcoach if our windows were open. Yuck! 

There are 124 sites in the park (no cabins or tent sites).

Sites 1-12 are pull-in sites that afford a partial view of the lake. Sites 14-21 are back-in sites that also provide a partial view of the lake. Sites 110-124 are pull-through sites (we were in 117). The remainder two rows are back-in sites with two sites back-to-back. Many appear to be full-time residences (some a little shabby).

Here are some views of the RV resort.

Amenities: Cable tv (with many channels) is available at no additional cost. Wi-Fi is available for a fee (monthly is approximately $28). There is a lovely pool (heated to 82 degrees) and very nice hot tub. The hot tub was fabulous after hiking a few miles! 

Horseshoe pits and BBQ grills are available in a common area. 

There is also a gazebo at the perfect location to enjoy the sunset. 

The pet walk is a small fenced in area and there is a limit of 3 pets per RV (of course, we only have one). There is an area down a hill that is not park of the RV resort where we sometimes took Sadie to run. 

The laundry room is not too large, but met our needs just fine.

 Many folks that stay here each winter store their RV and/or boat in an area behind the office owned by the park. 

Cost: $490 plus electric ($125)

Management: When we first checked in, I did not feel that the staff were very friendly. However, I had several packages mailed here and additional interactions were fine. There is a pool table, lending library, and lots of information about Lake Havasu City in the office.

General Comments: Initially, my impression of this place was not as positive as it was after staying here for a month. Other than the lot size, we enjoyed our stay here. And we really like Lake Havasu City where there is so much to see and do. I know this RV resort is sold out in January and, probably February 2016. There are many RV parks in the area including the beautiful state parks (Lake Havasu, Cattail Cove, River Island, and Buckskin Mountain) nearby.
