We have been invited to stay here many times throughout our years of coming to this area but we just never did, but now that they offer Coast to Coast, we are taking full advantage.

We paid $10 in points with our Coast to Coast membership for a wide and long gravel site that included water, 50/30 electric, sewer, and cable. They also offered WiFi for a price. They did not add any resort fees, taxes or anything else to our total so all we paid was with our points which has become a rare find but a welcoming practice.


This resort is huge and has a spectacular view from high atop this hill. Where our site was located, we did not have any views but we were nestled in so we hardly felt the wind that is very usual for this area and had been frightful many of those days, and the temperatures were frigid most of our stay so even the pool and spa were not inviting at all.



It is nice having two choices in an area where we love to hang out at that we would highly recommend and will definitely be staying at again.

Ridgeview RV Resort

Ridgeview RV Resort

Bullhead City, AZ  86429

12/6-12/20/2016, 3/1-3/15/2017


2016 Update – We could repeat ourselves totally as previous posts. Checking in is always a breeze with wonderful customer service. The wind is still frightful at times but how glorious it is to be so warm during the day and no sweater at night while enjoying the stars under clear skies. We just love it here. Even in May the pool was frigid but due to the 100 degree temps it felt wonderful, December...not so much.

2014 Update – We paid $10 in points and then an additional $3 resort fee plus taxes per night but our Verizon was perfect and worked wonderfully.  The wind was still an ongoing issue but not as bad as in the Desert Hot Springs area.


With our Coast to Coast membership we paid a little over $13 per night for water, electric and sewer, fairly level gravel site that includes cable and a patio slab.  The last time we were here they did not have any extra charges, but they now added a resort fee and tax to their price as many others do.  Even with that, $13 per night for a nice resort in a wonderful area is not so bad.  Our phones and MiFi worked fairly well, but they continued to switch from Arizona to Nevada time regularly, they offer Tengo Internet for a small charge but we just moved our MiFi around and it worked.


The laundry room has 10 washers & dryers and seems to be a very busy place but we found the time to use them.  The restrooms were well maintained but as usual we did not use them.



It was quiet and peaceful at night, but during the day every once in a while a loud plane would take off from the small airport that would shake the ground. 

The swimming pool and Jacuzzi was kept up well, even though we did not use them due to the weather. 



The people are very friendly, both the workers and the guests and it looked as if their rules were enforced, we never seen a dog without a leash and owners were picking up after them.



We will definitely stay here whenever we come through this area again and would highly recommend it to others.

Emerald Cove Resort
2715 Parker Dam Road
Earp, CA  92242
760-663-4941
April 2013, 12/11-12/17/2014, 1/22-1/31/2017, 2/15-3/1/2017


2017 Update - Still no additional charges and they continue to treat us so wonderful...the roads were also worked on getting to the resort. It got so bad the last time we were here rattling that our grey tank shook loose but now the roads are much better.

2014 Update - Still no additional charges and they continue to treat us so wonderful here...it's amazing how the customer service here is so much better then many of their other properties since this too is associated with Colorado River Adventures.  The main company should have this manager train the others...

We had water issues several times during our stay and were told by neighbors that it has been going on for the few weeks they were here prior too.  While hooking up, Jerry ran the water as he always does and it began to come out like black soot...the maintenance man immediately came when we called and said they had been working on the water and will blow out the lines, he did and it fixed that issue.  A few days later while I was in the shower the water stopped and was off for about 10 minutes, I had to finish with our pump.

We paid $10 per night with our Coast to Coast membership, no additional charges for water, electric and sewer site on level gravel with a picnic table and barbecue.  Our Verizon MiFi and phones had great reception and for an additional charge they offered cable.


Our first visit we were crammed into a site on the second row from the lake where our neighbor’s awning was touching our rig and the other neighbor was using our picnic table to sit on while he washed his dog on our site.  We were not happy campers but it was convenient for us while we worked nearby and spent our days off here.

The cleaning people must have had the day or maybe the week off because the restrooms and laundry area were dirty and wreaked of a sour smell.  The smell is the water and even in 2014 it still has that smell.



The store carried all the conveniences including beer, wine, ice and even lottery tickets.  The Emerald Tiki Bar served breakfast, lunch and dinner with phenomenal pricing.  They also offered Karaoke and Happy Hour Specials on some refreshing alcoholic beverages.

We stayed here several times while we were working in the area during a slow time in between the winter and summer seasons.  Otherwise we believe this park will be packed with kids, toys and lots of activities in the River Rat’s Kid’s Club, more like a KOA on steroids.



If we are ever in the area we would stay here again, the location is great and being on the water is surreal but we would avoid it during peak seasons.
