   If there ever was a fraudulent sign advertising  camping rate per night it is the one at Cherry Valley lakes in Beaumont Ca. It reads "$10.00 Per Night,  Full hookup" in 30 inch capitol letters on a 5ft X12ft sign 40 ft in the air along Interstate 10 on the westerly side. Then in 2 inch letters, which from the ground is not ledge able it states Tour Required.    Being a former volunteer worker doing security10 pm to 4am I say first hand and had to deal with 3-5 people each night who came looking for the $10.00  stay only to be told that if they didn't take the tour it would cost $50.00 for the night!. In reality it was the old bait and switch scam. Additionally even if the person did want to  take the tour they couldn't do it on Monday and Tuesday because  the sales office was closed. This bait and switch got so bad with people getting upset that before I quit I started talking thru the intercom radio to the new arrivals rather then face to face contact so as not to be put in harms way.   And the Owners really think this is a good way to force the people to sign up for membership?.

Update to the Fraud!

AUTHOR: Ben Screwed - (U.S.A.)

After going thru my contract I found something very interesting !  Colorado River Adventures Inc.  "DOES NOT" own Cherry Valley Lakes Resort It is still privately own.

BUT the truth is that Emerald Cove Mobile homes, LLC & Echo lodge, LLC have a lease with those owners and have sub-leased it to C R A by written contract that expires in 2040.

If that is true how can they(C R A ) say that it is a Life time contract they are selling you and wanting you to upgrade for THOUSANDS OF DOLLARS! ? While it states that they C R A might be able to renew their contract or that the contract is renewable that doesn't mean it will be . Things have a way of changing . Also while they(C R A ) state if the lease is not renewed you will be able to go to one of their other parks which are already full  and many on the waiting list. 

 Emerald cove is under similar lease agreement.   Funny they didn't say anything  about leasing the park when they were explaining everything.   

BUYER BEWARE> When they say read before signing, I would suggest everyone do just that , read the fine print.

Yes, Cherry Lakes is now owned by CRA, Colorado River Adventures..

AUTHOR: Alida betts - (U.S.A.)

YES! Your report is 100% correct, as I  have BEEN there. We have a "membership" with Colorado River Adventures (CRA) and bought a membership that INCLUDES an addendum that we can ADD a week to our 2-week stay for a set price ($65). When we tried to do that, they said that Cherry Valley wasn't "included" in the CRA addendum. I pulled out the CRA addendum, which listed Cherry Lakes at one of the participating camp grounds with CRA.

CRA has bought up, and had some RV camps. Most are on or near the Colorado River in Az. They trap folks into signing up, with contracts that are 10 pages long, on both sides with teeny weeny print, that includes, this is a LIFETIME contract, and that you will pay until you die, OR have a negative collection account on your credit report..OR you can try and sell it to someone else (like a timeshare) only the transfer fee is prohibitive, and no one wants to buy it from you, as they can get MORE camps, more benefits direct from the CRA people. They DO  have a huge sign at all their camps saying," Camping $10 a night.."...and NO where on the sign can one see anything that says you have to listen toa 2 hour sales "presentation" that will cost you $10,000 to join and almost $500 a year and then MORE for the vacation rentals... Also the places are filled up with trailers and park models for  people who no longer have RVs...as they are too expensive to fill up, and/or tow to the RV campgrounds, so CRA put intheir own park model 400 sf mobile homes, and tiny trailers for people to rent. There is LITTLE room for the members to bring in their RVs.

They only care about signing up NEW members,and once you sign on the dotted line, they barely give you the time of day when you stay there. DO NOT JOIN their RV camps. DO NOT. DO NOT. Unfortunately, we did!
