I have been coming to River Lodge for 15 years, it has the best location on the strip. The resort has a lazy lagoon, boat inlet, bungalows, a small general store and campsites. Staff is always friendly and the place has a great vintage feel to it.

This park has great river access and beautiful scenery! You can go out on your boat, go golfing, or watch your kids paddleboard in the protected lagoon. It's far enough away from town to feel secluded, but close enough that there are some restaurants and stores just a few minutes' drive away.

I went to the RiverLodge Resort last week and it was unreal. The simplicity of getting in and out of the River is by far the best. Everything you need is there and if you want to go to dinner or party a little it is all so close. I am going back for the 4th and expect it to... More

Ive been coming to River Lodge for the past 20 or so years. The person who used to own the resort did nothing to upgrade the resport and it was sold. The new owners and current management have done absolutely nothing to upgrade the grounds and therer are wild burros running everywhere. The bathrooms are dumps and the grounds itself... More

We are sorry to hear that you were disappointed on your recent visit. We do our best to keep the campground facilities clean and functional for all of our guests and customer service is a priority for River Lodge Resort. The wild burros are native to this area and we have no control over their population. The BLM does make... More

This has been a beautiful resort, but is rapidly deteriorating due to poor management. There is a 9-hole golf course, which is entirely maintained by the snow birds staying there, and they also do a lot of the other maintenance there as well. The clientele however, is another story. Very friendly people, and they do a lot of fun activities... More

The park is nice and open with lots of space, including a beautiful golf course. The donkey's here are also family are so friendly. We love this place... More

I've been living and staying at the river and lake for over 40 years. Now that I'm retired this is the only place I stay when going to the river. Great people, best management and a great golf course. I have been staying there for the last 6 years and love it more than ever. If your one of those... More

My wife and I spent nearly five months at the River Lodge Resort last winter, and we're looking for a way to do so again. We found the environment along the lower Colorado River enchanting. Especially during the winter, when it's possible to scramble into the desert in any direction and barely work up a sweat. The combination of habitats... More

I have been to this park many times and I can assure you there is a golf course. If fact last winter I enjoyed watching the USA vs CANADA golf tournament that the "snowbirds" hold annually. USA won, WOOHOO! :) As for power outages that's not the parks fault. When the power company needs to work on the high power... More

They make it look good on their website, but the reality is this is a low-rent experience at a high-rent expense (there is no golf course). This place has terrible customer service, and we've finally had enough! ...been going to Riverlodge Resort for years to enjoy the river and get away from the crowds, but after dealing with power outages,...
