Winterhaven, California: Gold Rock Ranch

For those who seek an out-of-the-way place in the desert to park their RV. Gold Rock's claim to be a "resort" strains credibility, but it is near an abandoned gold mine with 1,000-foot-deep shafts.

Gold Rock Ranch Road.

Gold Rock

A strange little RV camp that bills itself as a resort, but let's be real. It's mostly long-term trailers centered around a gift shop and old mining equipment on display. Quaint because of its bramble fences and speed limit of "Darn Slow," it's a nice place to stretch your legs between Blythe and Yuma.
