Canyon Vistas RV Resort (55+ park), Gold Canyon, Arizona

Date of Stay: December, 2017 - $13.00
Overall Rating:      

Cal-Am had a $999, three-month, Oct-Dec rate for several of their parks, so we tried it. Extra charges for monthly sewer, weekly trash pick-up (you get a big Waste-Management can), and electric. No final bill yet but I think it will end up adding about $3 a day, not bad. This is a very well managed resort with many activities. The location is about thirty miles east of PHX but the highway system in Phoenix is great. The park is on the edge of the burbs but just across the main road, US 60, is a Basha's supermarket (with liquor) in a small strip mall with a Subway, pet care, Chinese food, salon, UPS store, and a mile away is a Walgreen's, another Chinese restaurant, a pizza place, dentists, and more. Walmart, Home Depot, and all the other big stores are 8-10 miles away. Canyon Vistas is mostly flat and connected to three other snowbirds RV parks/communities so you can ride bikes for 10+ miles and not go out on the highway. There are multiple dog parks and a nice greenway walk. This park is more RV's than park models but sister park, Superstition Views has modern casitas with RV ports and Montessa, the other sibling, is all small homes. Gold Canyon RV Golf Resort also has an open gate connected but that is a Roberts Resort, with older park models. Most of the people around us have been coming here for years and most stay Oct-Mar. Just about everyone we've met are really friendly. Not a lot of cliques and lots of ways to meet people. Highly recommended if you're looking for value. We'll be back next year. We camped at Canyon Vistas RV Resort (55+ park) in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

Pizza place - eh. Chen's Chinese - very good. Basha's supermarket just ok. Go to the Fry's in Mesa. Drive the long loop up Apache Trail to Roosevelt Dam, Globe, and back, 3+hours, late afternoon. Christmas light tour - see AZCentral.com - was great. Arboretum/State Park a few miles east is worth the fee. We're kind of in the boonies here, but as I said, the highway system is excellent.

St. Mary / East Glacier KOA, St Mary, Montana

Date of Stay: June, 2017 - $78.00
Overall Rating:      

Several reasons we stayed in this park: 1. Other options for a 42' motorhome were not good 2. Proximity to East Glacier entrance 3. Friends from NY that we picked up in Great Falls wanted to stay close by so they rented a cabin at an exorbitant rate If you can get by the rate, it is a fine park. They put us as close to our friends as possible. Roads are gravel but level. Sites are large enough. Staff is as you would expect at a KOA. One thing - someone opened a package I had delivered there. I inquired after Amazon confirmed it had been delivered and they suddenly showed me my item. Who does that? Anyway, the park is fine. We'd stay there again. We camped at St. Mary / East Glacier KOA in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

Eat at Two Sisters, about 5 miles north. Fun place, always packed. Come with everything you expect to consume. The grocery-everything store nearby is more like a big 7-11. If you go in early summer, darkness doesn't come until after 11. Water quality is good. No need for bottled water.
