Fender’s River Road Resort and Motel – Needles, Calif.

A small, scenic park on the Colorado River
  • Editor Rating

  • Rated 4 stars
  • 80%


This very small park right on the Colorado River was surprisingly nice. It doesn’t look like much on the satellite view, but we ending up with a partial river view from our full hookup site for the $15 a night passport America rate.

The campground offers a few sites with great river views and a two-story deck right in front of them. The laundry room/ shower building is newer, and it is about a two-mile drive from Interstate 40. We plan to go back again when we have some time -- and enjoy a river view site.

  • Space at the site was so short we had to disconnect the tow vehicle
