We recently stayed overnight at Needles KOA. We have been road tripping in a hired RV and stayed at a few KOA places. All have been helpful but the host at Needles was exceptional. She gave us tips to save on fuel (where to go for the best price), places to visit and things to see. She also assisted with information on other KOA sites for our future reference including what type of weather we may be heading into.
I would recommend Needles KOA for a clean bathroom, campsite, rec room, pool and the best host around.
We are new to driving a RV and this is the first place we stopped. The lady was so sweet and told us we could use the pool even after hours if we were quiet. It was 107 degrees so we appreciated the pool and we had it al to ourselves.
The staff are friendly, helpful, polite and courteous. Park is quiet, easy on and off access from freeway, well laid out, easy to navigate. The showers and restrooms are clean. Older RV park is well maintained and kept clean. The spots are not close together, vary spacious. Pool is well maintained and close to showers.
My wife and I, our 10yr old son and 7 yr old daughter pulled into to the Needles KOA on an exceptionally hot day. 47 degrees C (119f) expection a run down camp ground.
Given the rest of Needles is pretty vacant and derelict this was a reasonable assumption.
We were very pleasantly surprised to find a very well looked after, tidy and clean stop off for the night.
We were greeted by a very friendly lady who went to the trouble of checking our needs and downsizing our lot to something more suitable, and then provided a refund for the difference.
The pool was a welcome sight. Clean and of a decent size.
Although the camping lot area is mainly sand and rock, it is kept clean and very safe for kids moving about.
This is a great little KOA, worth a stop if you are in the area.
We got there and found only one other person in a campervan, so had the place pretty much to ourselves.
Bathroom/showers were very good.
Didn't get to use the pool as it was quite cool when we got there in mid April but it looked very inviting.
There were several taps by the tenting sites which were leaking which was a bit of a sad thing to see, especially since California is in drought. It was obvious they had not been fixed for a very long time as plants were thriving and large.
Lighting was dull but ok for walking about at night.
My only negative was it was on a main train line which had trains running past quite close every ten minutes, literally!
Lovely area if you are into boating and the river.
