A neighbor of mine is trying to talk me into going to Bouse, Arizona to snowbird come Nov. Price seems good but I know little or nothing about Bouse or the RV parks there. Anyone else been there can say yea or nay about Bouse RV Park? Thanks

Hi Lee,
I have never been to Bouse. Consider reposting this to the Campground Information forum, you should get some responses. On the main forum page, scroll down and you will see the Campground information forum.

Bouse is a very friendly little town. However, we stayed in an RV park there (Coyote Ridge) and it was NOISY! Railroad tracks and major highway traffic (big trucks) right there.

I can't imagine how any of the other RV parks would be much quieter...we stayed a week and got almost no sleep at all.

You can drycamp back in the hills west of Bouse. We enjoyed that except for poor cell signal.

If you're into boondocking, Bouse is not bad at all. Just outside of town to the west on the Bouse-Quartzsite Rd there's lots of places just off the road you can boondock. Not crowded like the boondock areas near Quartzsite and you're not near any heavy traffic, railroads, etc..

Thanks for the info. This neighbor says he has stayed there before in the past some time or another. And I am sure his wife would not put up with a train noise so hopefully the Bouse RV park will not be as bad. He tells me the price is great for Arizona and its away from the crowds but not too far to drive to get to everything. But having never snowbird I wanted to try and cover all my bases. Thank you all.

I asked about the train noise and he says that when one gets a space in the back one is not bothered by the noise. And we are now going to be staying at the Desert Pueblo RV at Bouse.

A little late... but, there's train noise, then there's train whistle noise.

I live (In an RV park) fairly close to a train track (no more than 3 blocks) that has frequent trains passing both ways. Fortunately, our city has made provisions with the Rail operators for them to not blow the horns when they are coming through. And they adhear to that provision quite well. Only once in a while will I hear a blast. That makes a very big difference.

We stay at Desert Gold rv park in Brenda, a few miles south of Bouse. I like our area better than Bouse. We did stop in the town a couple of times..I never heard a train(saw the tracks)when we were there. Old museum at Bouse-Gen patton had a tank training operation. We attended the community days back in Nov, nice small town happening..check out the Brenda area, we are only 3 miles from I-10(no truck noise) and 15 minutes from Quartzsite. We are gold prospectors and rock hounds. Our park has a really nice pool and hot tub, lots of activities(may go to them next year) Produce vendor comes in once a week and the Black Rock cafe across the road is Superb! Sat. nite-prime rib with salad bar and all the trimmings..We are a large park 550 spaces, Black Rock rv village and Brend rv across the road. If you have an atv-take it along..comes in handy. We have been going to the Quartzsite area for the past 3 winters and will be at Desert Gold in Brenda agin this coming winter..
Any questions, email me. Dona
