We joined cra about a month ago and love it! We did our initial stay and tour at KQ ranch in Julian, Ca. After reading many reviews previous to our stay we almost cancelled the trip, but I’m glad we didn’t. We went into the deal with no plans of joining, but once we got there and saw everything they had to offer at all the different locations we went for it. I notice most of the “1 star” and “negative” comments are people that just wanted all the free stuff and were pissed when they realized there might be strings attached, yes the “gas card” is a reimbursement and the “free tablet” is a cheapy, so if that’s all your going for don’t bother. However, if you are looking to enjoy some great exclusive private camping destinations this may be for you. I was always taught that nothing in life is free!! We can’t wait to tour around and check out some other locations.read more

This is our favorite RV destination. Even though it’s only 2 1/2 hours from Buckeye, we enjoy the many amenities offered. The Tiki bar serves great food at great prices. Daily lunch specials. Their happy hour is fun and very reasonable. Emerald Cove has many events daily and weekend nights too.read more

Emerald Cove, our favourite park to spend the winter in. It feels like home in paradise. Like anything else, one can always find some faults but overall, this is where we want to spend the winter months. We have no complaints, we just enjoy. The friendly staff, the weather, the activities, the family atmosphere all add up to enjoyment. Can’t wait for November when we go back.read more

I been a member since 2007 and have enjoyed emerald cover each and every time we go which is approx. 4 to 6 times a year. Staff in the General store are great and very helpful. I would encourage everyone to sign up and upgrade as needed. The tiki bar is great. P.S. the Blue Water casino is 10 to 15 drive away. Have fun.read more

Emerald cove is our winter destination. We have been wintering in and around Emerald cove resort for 5 years and keep coming back because the "snowbirds " here have become friends, the staff (both paid and volunteers) are helpful and friendly. I don't believe there is a better value for my time and money than CRS. See you all in the fall God willing.read more

We joined CRA in November, Emerald Cove is our "home park" and we love staying there! The staff are friendly and helpful, the food is good and reasonably priced, and manager Skip helped us out in a VERY generous and kind manner. We have stayed at Havasu Springs, nice people there, staff and visitors alike. Yuma Lakes, absolutely LOVED it there! We learned to play shuffle board, bocce ball and came in 2nd in the "blind golf cart" race and they loaned us the cart! We've met all kinds of people, can't wait to see them again! Life's too short not to enjoy and CRA is a GREAT way to enjoy OUR life!�read more

We have been members for a year and have only been to Emerald Cove but we have been there a lot. We spent every holiday except Xmas there and many other weekends, we love it! Power can be sketchy at times get some protection and yes the park looks dated but thats what we love. Were not looking for everything paved the kids rented a trailer and liked it little kid loves the kids club i love the pool and bar, the store has lots and everything is fairly priced sometimes i dont bring anything from home. The crew at the bar and store are super cool and the foods not bad. I read lots of bad reviews and havnt experienced anything except the gas card deal is lame especially if you buy in. I gave 5 stars for the fun my family has there its where they want to spend birthdays and holidays all year long we will be there next week and coming back the next week for Easter.read more

We like CRA and particularly like Emerald Cove and Havasu springs. If you urilize your membership this is a good deal. We like that it comes with membership in Coast to Coast which we used a lot in the East. We first tried it with a partial membership and recently upgraded to a full membership. Some of the campgrounds are better than others, but everyone has their favorites. I would recommend that others look into membership and evaluate whether it is appropriate for their lifestyle.read more

The Park is a nice place to come to but leave your computers and phones at home. There isn't any WIFI that will work for you. Yes, they say they have it but so far it's been non-existent. Watch out for the little kids in the golf carts, they will run into you or your car and keep on going. I'm just stating the facts. We have learned to work around these problems.read more

Love our two weeks on the river, mini-golf, Happy Hour at the Tiki Bar, special daily lunch menus that are reasonably priced. Bathrooms are always clean, pool and spa enjoyable. With lots to do in the greater Parker area, Emerald Cove makes a nice place to call “home” for a few weeks!read more

We have lots of fun. Each park is different. Usually close to towns. There are pools, pool tables, club houses for dinners. Here at Emerald Cove we danced to live music at the Tiki Bar. There's always something going on. If you like 4-wheelin there's lots of desert. Lots of water for fishing.read more

We've been members for over three years. CRA is awesome. Whenever you go to one of these membership presentations you usually think I'll listen to what they try to sale me for 90 minutes and enjoy my weekend on their dime. But CRA was more than just a 90 minutes experience. The whole weekend was full of great memories. Every person I talked to in the park was so happy about their decision to become members. And after experiencing the whole weekend I understood why. You cannot go to a CRA resort and not drive away totally satisfied, relaxed and full of anticipation of your next visit.read more

They do a great job of providing info & essential stuff needed. We absolutely LOVE the new cottages. Keep up the great job CRA!!!read more

I bought a pitcher of 805 Beer 6.00 ....('' Good menu w/ good Prices, Hamburger and FF 5.95 . Food was good. Sat Breakfast 4.95 2 lg Pancakes with 4pec Bacon or 2 sausage. Sunday Breakfast 5.95 With very small glass Champing OK . Overall the Park is very nice and clean, the people that work there are very help full and nice.

I love this place, but.... when your standing in line to place your order of food and u stand there for 8 minutes (in the line with 1 couple in front) because the servers are "new" and say no more food orders. Because your in line before they say no more orders you would expect to still have your order taken. Right!! Well not tonight the newbs called me a lier and said I wasn't in the line...(I was) and said "not going to argue with you" for just telling them i was in line, said I was standing there..pointed to my standing spot. Still refused. What happened to the friendly customer service? No more tips for those two blind bats.read more

We love camping here and have for two years. There is a store with everything you could possibly need. A bar that serves drinks of various kinds and they even serve food. There are three pools and two hot tubs. One set in the sun and one set in the shade. There are things to do for all ages and a River too !!!read more

Kq ranch is a great quick get away for a weekend, or longer. Having only been a member for a couple years it is a great place. I really love the workers there they are always so helpful. Lots of things you can participate in or just be a hermit. Very warm and inviting place to go to not far from the city. And Julian pies are just right around the corner. My only request would be tv and wifi hook ups at the campsites and not just at the club house.read more

We have been members for 4 years and Emerald Cove is our favorite place. The staff at tiki bar, store and gate are helpful. Phil gives management no authority to make decisions. The manager Skip will hardly make eye contact and is not friendly. If you take a concern to Skip or Ron they will tell you they have to ask management and things never change. according to the rule book given out at main gate dogs are not allowed in pool area, buildings or on beach. We have two dogs and do not take them where they do not belong. We observe dogs not only in pool area and store, but in the swimming pool. These are not service dogs as they have no identifications stating so and are not well trained as they sometimes bark constantly and observed urinateing on chairs. It is my right to sit at the bar and enjoy a drink or food with out a dog {or pig which I have also seen} at my feet. There are other concerns we have but this is the one that impacts us the most. We were under the impression that rules were set for everyones benefit. It seems that members and their visitors are able to pick and choose the rules that they want to follow. I hope management gets the opportunity to read this.read more

We have been members for 13 years and love it enough that we have upgraded our membership twice to get all the benefits that CRA has to offer. We can stay 3 weeks at any of the resorts for $0 out of our pockets when we arrive. No extra charge for electricity or a site close to the water. As an RV'r that has spoiled me for all these other parks who do. We had my husband's birthday at Emerald Cove and they were more than accommodating helping my guests reserve rentals. We have met some our closest friends from our time at Emerald Cove. This our retirement plan. Yes..it's not cheap to join but it's worth every penny and this organization puts a lot of money back into their parks with improvements and activities.read more

We've been w/ CRA for 8 years & we enjoy every moment we been in different site but most of all we love Emerald Cove especially during summer I know it's HOT @ this time but if you stay close to water most of the time w/ your toy either boat or your jitski fun time will make it cooler.... If you love Serenity during winter time KQ ranch is the place to go and you will not missed enjoying the enclose pool. We are thankful to be a member of CRA my kids will continue this Legacy. To the management who never stop finding ways to improve each site for excellence TY. Pls continue to listen to your members for any suggestion....FUN FUN time, Life short to be Boringread more

We joined in August of 2015. Have been to 4 of the 10 resorts so far & loved each one. We're at Cherry Valley Lakes as I write this review. When we got here we were a bit concerned but that was due to the site we chose. We were allowed to move to another site in a couple of days that fit our needs much better. The change was without a hassle & we could not be happier. Thanks to "Sherry", the employee, who is also a member, the transition was done in about 30 minutes. Again because of the people who work for the organization doing what they can to make the campers happy.The ONLY comment I have to the CRA ownership is about Internet connections. So many of us, both old & young use the Internet for so many purposes, including writing about our experiences with the CRA resorts. However, beyond that, we use it for paying our bills on time, researching activities in the areas where we're staying while in a CRA resorts, checking our bank statements & balances, etc.As a result we need better, more reliable Internet connections to do these things. The WiFi connections are mostly intermittent & unreliable which is so frustrating when you have things to do online. I, for one, use the Internet for business reasons so I can enjoy my CRA benefits from anywhere I park my rig. Without a reliable, fast, always connected Internet, I lose out on deals that provide me with extra income.So, while I rate the organization with 5 stars, there is room for improvement. I work from my rig, sometimes for several hours & appreciate having WiFi right there & not having to go the clubhouse or other location to get a good connection.When members can do this, their stays are even more enjoyable as they stay connected to family, friends, opportunities to shop, activities in the vicinity & more. This media has become a necessity for my life & will only grow to greater importance in the future. So, please, prioritize this development. The hot spots in most resorts are not strong enough nor positioned correctly to overcome the adversity of the motorhomes blocking the signal.Being able to connect via cable is much better & more reliable as I did at Emerald Cove. It took a while to get that option established only because of needing additional equipment to do so. After that, everything was just like being at home in my office while connected to the world.Keep up the great work, employing the great employees & growing your organization. You've got a great system & we love it!!read more
