Colorado River Oasis RV Motorhome Park and Resort
Our next resort on our 1st Odyssey south in the fall/winter of 2008 in our 34 foot Gulf Stream motor home was a stop in Ehrenberg, Arizona at the Colorado River Oasis RV Resort which is a part of the Enjoy America system and is available to RPI Preferred members and is a Western Horizon Resort.
We like this resort because of it’s proximity to so many fun places to visit. Just a few hours away is Phoenix, Las Vegas, Laughlin, San Diego and Los Angeles. Don’t want to mention how close it is to Quartzsite, AZ also. We made a few trips there to check out all the vendors. The first day we went, the weather was so chilly and windy so many of the vendors were not open. We enjoyed our day there anyway, scouted out what we wanted to come back and check out when the weather improved and had a fun day exploring Quartzsite and the BLM area around the city. Everyone seemed to say that the chilly temps were pretty normal for that time of year. Oh, don’t miss the Kettle Korn vendor! That’s the best Kettle Korn I have ever eaten!
Don’t forget to drive around the area and check out the BLM land that is available for boondocking. There’s a ranger station where you can get all the info you need. When you think of this wonderful RV park, you think of the desert and images of dry desert sand but there’s beautiful scenery all around with mountains in the distance and don’t forget the Colorado River borders one side of the park. Blythe is close by for supplies. We shopped at the KMart.
This park is well kept and very comfortable with all the amenities which include a clubhouse, pavilion, heated outdoor pool, spa, playground, picnic area, horseshoes, boat ramp, swimming, boating, bingo, cable TV, laundry, security, badminton, volleyball, propane, small beach area, dump station, movies, a store with RV supplies, too, and don’t forget there’s always bird watching and wildlife around. There’s fishing which requires a license. Within walking distance is a Flying J gas station and their restaurant and store.
For fun besides the cities I mentioned above, there’s the Colorado River, and the Colorado River Recreation area, speedboat racing, off-road excursions, golf courses and there’s also gold and gem mines and don’t forget the Quartzsite gem show. When we were there, we took part in a walking class, I played Pokeno bingo, didn’t miss the ice cream social and we even had a fun time with the horse racing game!
