Our Opinion: Neutral. If you are an Elk and need a place to overnight, it is a convenient stop at a reasonable price for a 50 amp FHU site

Date of Stay: May 1, 2008

Weather During Stay: Blue skies, very windy (25-35 mph with a Wind Advisory), sunny, upper 70‘s. Low forecast to be in the 50‘s.

Sites: 9 FHU sites with 15/30/50 amps. Sites are long, reasonable width, reasonably level and graveled. All pull-throughs; no need to unhook towed vehicle. Sites face NW. Plenty of space available for drycamping.

Rate: $15 plus tax for FHU: $16.50. Drycamping is $8 plus tax

Phone/radio/TV: Strong Verizon phones signal; aircard on Broadband, 5 bars. No obstructions to block TV satellite. Several TV stations on antenna, including a PBS station. Local NPR on 89.5.

Elevation/Landscape/Terrain: This is a gently sloping RV parking area on a bluff overlooking I-40 and Needles. Views of distant homes, businesses and arid mountains. Elevation is 560’

Lighting/Noise: Low lighting, no problem at all; muted noise from I-40 at night.

Favorite Sites: All sites are essentially the same, except Site 1, which seems almost an afterthought.

Hiking/Walking: Sidewalks fronting rather new neighborhoods.

Comments: Convenient. A typical Elks RV parking area in an arid environment. Friendly people in lodge. Works for us!
