Crossroads RV Park sits on the fringes of Arizona, five miles outside of Mohave Valley, and the borders of Nevada and California. It is a desert climate and a passing area for travelers and those seeking quiet refuge for more extended periods. There are more mountainous areas, "just up the road."
As the name would suggest, Crossroads RV Park lies in a prominent location for people passing through some of the midwestern United States. Though it rests in the state of Arizona, Crossroads RV Park is mere minutes away from the state borders of both Nevada and California, which both are right across the Colorado River a few miles from the campground. The RV park is designed to cater to two crowds of people: passerby and long-term senior residents. The campground currently has 138 RV sites, with plans to expand in order to add 38 more sites to their repertoire, which would bring the total up to 176. They currently sit on around 8 acres, but with the expansion, they plan on having around 12 acres at their disposal. Due to the campground's size, they are able to accommodate a larger number of people who are merely passing by on their way to other locations. Each RV site comes with full standard hookups, including water, sewage, and electric. In addition to the RV-specific amenities offered at Crossroads RV Park, there is an assortment of other activities and camp-wide features available for use. Such features include a woodshop, laundromat, showers, horseshoe pit, trash facilities, and a clubhouse with a pool table, a full kitchen, and a 105-inch projector screen with Direct TV. Free WiFi is available throughout the campground. Just outside of the RV park, there is an extensive number of ATV trails, which are some of the biggest draws of guests to the area. Many people visit with their ATVs and 4x4s specifically to take to the nearby trails. The surrounding landscape is decidedly desert in its nature. There is little greenery, though that doesn't stop guests from saying things such as "the nature around the mohave valley is gorgeous." It is more akin to a midwestern desert beauty than the traditional forest environments that are more common to the RV park industry. Other nearby activities include casinos in the city of Laughlin to the north and river activities to the west. Crossroads RV Park is open during the entire year, and their best months of operation are from October to April.
The culture of Crossroads RV Park is quiet. The park sits outside of a town which is already relatively small for the area—Mohave Valley—so it is a secluded area away from most other people. The campground as a whole is described as a "55+ Adult Community," suggesting that the primary demographic of visitors are elderly couples who stay for longer stretches of time. The RV park offers daily, weekly, monthly, and annual rates, the last of which even more fully gives the impression that certain guests plan on staying for quite some time. The friendly atmosphere of the property and its staff are prevalent topics among the comments guests make about Crossroads RV Park. A potential difficulty of the property is the size of the roads leading to the sites, though the owner Javis often steps in to assist. One guest said, "Really enjoyed the 60 days we stayed here. Very friendly and helpful staff. Nice residents. We had a bit of a struggle getting our forty-foot fifth wheel parked, but the park manager went above and beyond helping. Overall a nice quiet place, and we would certainly return." Other guests mention their appreciation of being far away from highway traffic. In addition to the campground itself, one of the most considerable aspects of the nearby culture is the ATV trails. For many people, outdoor activities such as four-wheeling are the reason why they enjoy the area. There are also a handful of large cities within a few hours' distances of Crossroads RV Park. Laughlin sits only about 21 miles north of camp, and Las Vegas is within a two-hour drive.
The current owner of Crossroads RV Park is Javis Gandi. He has been the head manager of the property since 2012. The park itself opened back in 1987, under the ownership of a man named Tony. Before that, it was simply more desert land that is common in the midwestern United States. The park currently has 138 sites, though they plan on expanding during the year 2020 in order to increase that number to 176.
