This is not the lush Pacific Northwest, nor the tall pines Rockies, nor the tree covered Northeast. It's the desert. And this is one of the best, if not the best, desert RV parks we have been to. It's clean, dust free and convenient to I-8. The owner and staff were helpful and friendly. The enclosed dog run is well designed and maintained. No complaints about the cable TV and WiFi. Spaces are large. Many recent upgrades are clearly evident. If I coud give it more than 5 stars, I would. We camped at Gila Bend KOA in a Fifth Wheel.

Very welcoming staff. We talked with owner in the morning before leaving and she recommended sites to see on our trip. We would definitely stay here again. It is conveniently located far enough off the freeway that sitting outside for the quiet evening was enjoyable. We camped at Gila Bend KOA in a Travel Trailer.

This is one of the nicest desert parks we've ever stayed in. The sites are very large and the park is immaculate. They have a real grass dog park. The sites are level and gravel, with a picnic table. The overnight are in one area, so that the late comers aren't disturbing others. We camped at Gila Bend KOA in a Fifth Wheel.

This park has it all. Beautiful landscaping. Long wide pull through sites. A dog walk at one end of the park and a huge dog park at the other end. Beautiful pool area. Small cutting green. Playground for the kids. We camped at Gila Bend KOA in a Motorhome.

Gila Bend does not have a lot to offer, but there is a great Italian restaurant in town. The name of the restaurant is Little Italy.

Overall Rating:

We stayed for 2 weeks in March 2019; I believe it is either a very new park or changed owners recently? The spots are HUGE! Even the big motorhomes have plenty of room; It is just a mile off US Hwy 8 and Hwy 85 so highway (and railroad) noise is audible but not horrible. Since it is a "young" park, the little trees there are mostly pretty small, but...EVERY spot has some sort of bush or tree that adds so much to any RV stay. Best part is the pool! It is only 3.5' - 4' deep but soooo warm! I believe they told me 89 degrees! It is clean too. I'm 66 y/o and appreciate a pool but little kids will love it because of the shallow depth. Showers/restrooms very clean; very nice laundry (including clotheslines!) There is the large "meeting" room with cement firepit/get-together area in back; Absolutely nothing to do in Gila Bend itself, but the Phoenix suburbs are 30-45 minutes away, as is the smaller, scenic, peaceful town of Aho. We camped at Gila Bend KOA in a Travel Trailer.

Tips for other Campers:

Gila Bend is a very small town with several gas + restaurants + $ store + 2 motels. It does have a POST OFFICE and library so you can do the basics; it has a school also; INTERNET is basic RV park style that needs a booster when more than 5 people are on it =] "Fairly" nice choice of DVDs in office; all the staff is helpful and friendly.

Grocery store was 30 miles away in the town of Buckeye, and the restaurants are very few in town. Pretty ride to Goodyear and the baseball stadiums.

This park was a 2 night stopover. We normally do not stay at KOAs unless we have to because not all are kept up. This was the only place on our way to Yuma. It was very clean, appeared to be a well managed park. No trees or huge rocks to worry about. Would be hot in summer. Gravel pull thru in the overnight area. Utilities worked well. Easy on & off I-8. Only dings really were road noise which was constant even all night, so no sleeping with windows open. And, if the wind blows from the west, you might smell the cow manure from the cattle farm off I-8. We just kept windows closed. Only other thing they could do is clean off the picnic tables between customers. Ours had oil and bird droppings all over it. My opinion is if your going to provide a table, make it a clean one for your patron. We camped at Gila Bend KOA in a Motorhome.

Gila Bend KOA, owner at Gila Bend KOA responded to this review

Thank you for your review, and I am sorry your picnic table was not clean. We have had over 14-nights at full occupancy in the past 21-days and have been keeping very busy. For future reference, and at any RV Park, please contact the office when there is ANYTHING that you are not satisfied with as we would have cleaned your table asap. We did a round after your review and cleaned and painted 7 tables, so thanks for the heads-up! Hope to see you again. Scott Swanson, owner.

This park is excellent, quick friendly check-in with escort to my site. Freshly raked level gravel site with new looking utilities. Lots of nice extras, grass dog park with water, dog bath room, driving range (just a net), putting green (carpet) spotless laundry and showers, 4X4 access gate to the desert. A bit hard to find with a tricky turn off the 85, but easy return to the 8 and onto the 10. Will be back for a longer stay. We camped at Gila Bend KOA in a Motorhome.

We had a huge site , 150 ft long. Sites are gravel with a concrete patio. We had a gas grill and gas fireplace. Didn't need the fireplace since it was in low 100's during our stay but we used it one night. The grill was spotless. Great customer service, all KOA's should be like this.

Best KOA yet and by far the cleanest washrooms we have seen in any park. Spacious level sites, desert park so very little shade. Well laid out with convenient access to facilities. We camped at Gila Bend KOA in a Travel Trailer.

We are not fans of KOAs. We stayed here 1 1/2 years ago as a halfway stop. We stayed again 8/26 as a halfway stop. The owner has done a super job making improvements. He has added a pool, super nice bath house, landscaping. The sites are huge and level. The owner was out rolling the sites to make them hard packed. This KOA is a great example of what all KOAs should be like. The staff was very friendly. We camped at Gila Bend KOA in a Fifth Wheel.

This is a great park. Spacious, clean, and very reasonable price. Friendly staff take you to your site. She said they hadn't seen a snake in 3 months. Decent Wifi and good cable. Great place to overnight or rest up for a day or 2. The Shell station down the street has RV pumps. I imagine they get a lot of snowbirds in the wintertime. Will definitely stay here again.
