After long day driving, needed a place to rest. Luckily this KOA was less than 5 miles away. Had late night registration and sites available. We have 35 ft class A and towing a dolly and concerned with having to unhook, but sites are huge, length and width. Didn't concern ourselves with facilities as it was just a stop over. Did use laundry, very clean. Making improvements, pool, etc.

Very good stay. The vehicles were spaced very nicely for privacy and the park is quite nicely landscaped with trees which made for a plesant feeling..

Great campground. Denise was very helpful. The pull through space with the attached dog pen was excellent. I wish other campgrounds had the pet pen.


Thanks for your review! We are happy to see you like our newly created "PEThouse Suite" Depending on the demand, we may make another, but we are in the process of preparing 2 more deluxe sites that will be 150' long pull-thrus. We will call them the RUNWAY Sites...

Not everything was available, but there were very few people there the day I stayed and the office staff was helpful and polite.

There was only five other rigs there and they could not have put us further away from the dog run area if they tried. I asked and she said none wewe available. Absolutely stupid. I got the impression it was just to much trouble.


We're sorry you were unhappy. In summer months we do improvements to our sites and we are working on all the overnight sites near the dog park and we start between 530a-6a and do not want to park anyone in those areas. Water & elec are off at certain sites as well. We hope those sites open week of 8/7. Our other option is to close the park in summer as most in the desert do but we hope not to.

Very helpful and friendly. I can see the improvements that has been done since I stayed there and what they are working on. My dog loved the K9 dog run.

The Gila Bend park was great. It was very clean and very well planed. Easy to get in and out. I am planing to return this fall for a week or two stay. Thanks for the great stay. Jimmy

Convenient location, friendly staff, clean, new, quiet, pet friendly, sunny, good power, good water pressure, well stocked RV supplies in office, easy trash disposal, newly planted trees will provide nice shade in the next few years, good cable TV, level, spacious, long and wide sites, don't like their (the counties) sewer hose policy.


Thanks for the nice review. Yes, our county does require all sewer hoses to be elevated off the ground for proper drainage. This is especially important in the summer where our temperature stays in the 100's (even at night) and that really can "heat up" the sewage in the line which may cause older sewer lines to crack and leak. However, you can dump without a slunky and then put the hose away.

It's new and looks great. Its a great place to stay if you want to bypass Phoenix traffic. Easy access & friendly.

We stayed 2 nights at the end of Jun and it was EXTREMELY HOT!! First time camping with RV and the staff was so helpful and kind. The camp grounds were beautiful and clean. Will come back at cooler temps.

Pool wasnt open, no she to speak of, winter is the time to visit not summer, people were very nice, let us know when booking that pool was not open, enjoyed it.


We are always disappointed to see only 3-stars. As you mentioned, we let all summer bookings know our pool is not open yet. Also, we mention the temp is 100+, even at 10pm. I think you also meant to say there was no "shade" to speak of, and there is only 1 tree per site. Yes, it is best in the winter, but we've been staying open during the summer for those needing a safe place to spend the nite.

Of course, it was hot. The campground water never got below 110 degrees. Otherwise, a nice place. Ryan was most helpful.

Made reservation online with late arrival and special request. KOA rep called to discuss special request and adjusted our spot to accommodate without hesitation. Welcome packet waiting for us when we pulled in. Very nice park with plenty of spacious spots. Definitely will stay here next time through.

Denise is a perfect host. The grounds are well kept up and perfect for passing through.

Very nice new campground. Beautiful views! Staff was very friendly and helpful. It will be a 5 star in my opinion once the pool and shower facilities are complete!

Nice and new,I hope it remains as nice as time goes on. I wish other KOAs would update and keep theirs as nice. However the dog park was not opened up until a half hour after dawn.


Thanks for your review. Our dog park is open 24-hours, but the grassy area is only open dawn to dusk and we try to get there as early as possible, but sunrise is at 520am so we should probably change the sign to read no earlier than 6am.

We occasionally travel between our home in Southern California and a relative in SW New Mexico. Gila Bend is about half way and this new KOA serves us well. 4 stars now but 5 next time when the pool is finished and open. Very nice & helpful staff.

The spot 134 that we stayed in was awesome, the best with its own dog run, bbq grill, patio and fire pit. Great spot!!!!

This is a newer campground and still in progress, but it's gonna be great. No pool yet (a must in AZ) but not far off and the rest of the grounds are super clean, organized. Owner returned a message promptly.
May 30, 2017
New KOA! Fairly level sites. Great phone, Wi-Fi and all hookups. Would defiantly stay here again.

This Koa is not ready. The trees are to small and the pool must be build.


Our pool should be open later this summer & we let all arrivals know the pool is not ready & have other RV Parks to refer that offer a pool. This RV Park has been here 15-years (new to KOA 2015) with over 150 mature trees, however, the sites are so HUGE, it appears the trees are small.

Always a nice place - hosts are so welcoming and sites and grounds are immaculate. It is fun to watch the love poured into this campground as the new owners make it a vibrant desert oasis.

Extremely clean & friendly atmosphere. Disappointed that fellow campers were to lazy to properly sort their recycles.
