After completing our workamping assignment in Yuma, AZ, we headed for Rio Bend RV & Golf Resort for three days before starting our journey to Ouray, Colorado for our summer workamping job at the KOA. 

Of Course, We Do!!!

We had made our reservation with the resort and used our Passport America membership. Upon arriving at the resort we noticed a catch and release pond on the premises and when we inquired about the pond the clerk checking us in asked if we wanted a site with a pond view for no additional charge. We immediately said yes! 

It Was The “Off-Season”

Since it was the beginning of May and it was considered the “offseason” the resort was very quiet. There were RV sites, as well as numerous park models. The park was laid out fairly easy with streets running in rows. There was a catch and release pond on one side of the park with a golf course located on the opposite end.

Nice Privacy Hedges

Our site was comfortable and we had no trouble getting in. We noted that nearly every site had an oleander privacy hedge which we found enhanced the beauty of the park and also gave the sites a little bit of privacy. The site itself was fairly level. The hookups were placed in a convenient spot.

9 Hole Golf Course

We stayed the three days walking the park which has approximately 500 sites and most amenities that you will find at these large RV resorts, and of course a 9 hole golf course. They offered daily, monthly, single, and double memberships for golfing. We spent both our mornings and evenings sitting at our site enjoying sunrises and sunsets overlooking the pond. 

Need To Work Out?

On the same end as the golf course/pro shop, there was a gym complete with both free weights and cardio machines. The shower facilities and laundry room were located in the same building. The office and main activity area was located at the end of the main entrance row.

Surrounding the office was the activity center, ceramic room, cafe, bocce courts, pickleball courts, shuffleboard courts, a pool with a patio, and a gas fire pits. The activities are only run in the “in season” months.

Final Thoughts

This resort looks like it can be a lot of fun during the “in season” although there is nothing to do in the immediate surrounding area. Although we prefer the “woodsy” type campgrounds, we would definitely return to this resort and recommend it. The staff was friendly and helpful and we thoroughly enjoyed our visit.
