River Island State Park (Parker, AZ)

Park Entrance

 

Our Site #4

Our first stop. We’re here for several days. Notice that we have our big HughesNET Gen5 dish set up. This is because . . .

AT&T Service: none

Verizon Service: 1x (at best)

Campground WiFi:  Download speeds between 5 to 8 Mbps. However, it was only sporadically available.

 

This campground brings back memories for us. It reminds us of all the Wisconsin state parks we stayed at years ago. Electricy and water. No sewer hookups. So it’s campground shower time as our RV holding tanks would fill up mighty fast if we showered in our Newmar. Doing laundry is out too.

Here’s a description of the campground facilities . . .

NEWER CAMPGROUND BATH & SHOWERS

These are located near the campground entrance. We tried both old & new showers. The new showers had the best water pressure and hot water. The older showers took forever to warm up.
