Formerly Colorado River Oasis
50238 Ehrenberg-Parker Highway
2016 Update - The resort is now a non-member park but still accepts our Coast to Coast membership, now charging $15 per night with NO additional charges. In November 2013 the Manthei family purchased the park, they own Sky Valley and Caliente Springs in the Desert Hot Springs area. There does not seem to be many changes, still maintained well kept with lots of activities going on. The staff is priceless and we would still highly recommend it and we would stay here again if we are ever in the area.
They now have a new restaurant, the River Shack located in the clubhouse where we had the Blue Moon Burger that was awesome and the fries were fabulous. They make everything by scratch and it shows in the great taste.
Our first visit in 2008 was a complimentary 4 night stay with a 90-minute tour scheduled during our stay. This is part of the WHR private membership and we are now able to utilize our Coast to Coast membership for our stays.
In 2012 we paid $10 per night with no additional 50amp or cable charges for a water, electric, sewer, flat, gravel, back in site with a concrete pad patio. The sites were a good size for us. On our first visit we had our Jeep which took some manipulating to make it all fit. We noticed many other toad vehicles parked on empty sites which could cause complications of incoming guests.
Our Verizon phones and MiFi worked great here.
Very well maintained park right on the Colorado River which on this visit did not have much activity on it, during our visit in 2008 it was noisy all day with constant watercraft noise.
The pool and spa was fabulous, clean and the perfect temperature.
Doing laundry was nice because they had a lounge area with puzzles and a television. The only issue was there were several out of order machines which made our chore more time consuming.
They had lots of activities which we did partake in a few and had a blast. This is one of those parks where there is a lot of participation in the activities and we can see why. We attended Bingo and Karaoke and fun was had by one and all.
If we are ever in the area again, we will definitely stay here as long as they continue honoring Coast to Coast.
