This is the winter rate. Lovely park on the lake. Heavily treed next to the water so satellite service will be difficult. Verizon, Rogers and Bell all work well. Sites nearer to the entrance are also nice, separated by cedars and satellite works there. Will definitely stay here again.

Date of Stay:

Lovely park, quiet and dark so sleeping is easy. Close to many wineries and shopping. The rate is the off season rate, we paid $48 for the first two nights. We will definitely stay here again. Nicest park in the area for sure. Verizon works and Shaw satellite worked too but maybe not from all sites because it is quite heavily treed.

Date of Stay:

We had a nice pull through site with a good size patch of real grass. The park is clean and the staff are very nice and helpful. It is only two blocks to Safeway, Walgreen's, other stores and restaurants. Easy access to both freeways making it easy to get to points of interest and major shopping. Quiet despite the proximity to major highways. As good as the daily rate is, we stayed with Passport America for half that. Verizon and Bell ExpressVu both work well. We would definitely stay here again.

Grossly overpriced but the only game in town so they get away with it. We had a nice back in site along the road. Patio, picnic table and grassed area. Walking distance to good restaurants and other shops and close to Solvang and other interesting towns in the area. If wine tasting is a hobby this is the place to be. The WiFi was Tengo but it was good and free, a big surprise. There is a fenced dog run and a dog wash station. There are many trees and getting a satellite signal can be a bit of a chore: we needed to move to another site. If they were full, there may be a problem getting a clear sky spot. Verizon signal is good. I don't think we will ever return to this park because of the cost.

We paid the Passport America price of $15.50. We would never have stayed here for full price. First the good: Nice long pull through site; we didn't have to unhook the car for the overnight stay. There is a store for some food and movie rentals and the man in the office was very nice and helpful. Good free wi-fi and cable. Verizon did not work. Bell ExpressVu worked despite all the trees. Now the bad: the place is a dive. Junk and garbage everywhere and the long time residents sites are disgusting. If management would evict the junkers and clean up the area it could be a nice park. Ok for a cheap overnight stay but no longer.

This is a very nice park and we especially liked the size of the lots. The pools are nice and they have pickle ball, tennis courts and a putting green. The residents are friendly and the office staff friendly and helpful. They could use more activities for the residents because this is a destination park and people spend a few months at a time here. We highly recommend the fantastic Saturday morning breakfast for only $5.00. Very close to downtown Palm Springs and easy access to freeway for more extensive shopping. The wind is wild but they can't be held responsible; first clue are the hundreds of wind turbines just across the street. Verizon works well as does Bell ExpressVu. We will return when in the area.

This is an OK park. We stayed under Coast to Coast so the price was right. They sites are very close together: we could hardly get the door to the motorhome open because the car was parked so close. We didn't have a patio area at all because we needed the space to park the car. Lots of activities. Everyone that works in this park are very nice and friendly except for the older lady that is the sales manager. She is ugly to staff, renters and potential buyers. I went to see her about a membership and was treated like I wasn't good enough to be in the park. Why anyone joins with her in charge, is beyond me. We will stay here again because of the price, other staff and activities but will be sure to steer clear of her.

In the years since I last stayed here the management has changed and for the better. Everyone at the park was very friendly and helpful. One thing we like about this park is that it is quiet, unlike most in Yuma. The sites are large, the pool is nice and everything is very clean. Verizon and Bell ExpressVu worked very well. We will definitely return. This is an SKP member park.

This park is huge and mostly park models. Most park model people do not want RVers around, so not the greatest atmosphere. There are many activities so you can be kept very busy if you want to and the park is conveniently located to shopping access. Some of the lots are wide but very hard to get into because the streets are very narrow and there are fruit trees on each corner. We couldn't get our door open all the way because of the tree and had to wrap the door to keep the paint from being scratched by the branches. The man in the park model behind us was very particular about how close we parked to his unit so we were unable to move back the 6 inches it would have taken to clear the tree. It wouldn't have made any difference to the rear access of his place. Because it is so hard to navigate, be sure your propane tanks are full because Mesa does not allow propane delivery to your RV. I say there is access for 40 foot rigs, but it is tight and you should check out the site before you commit to it. There is now a charge for water and sewer and garbage and all power is metered, including daily rates. There are many activities, but I didn't find one that wasn't an extra charge. I wanted to use the sewing room cutting table to cut out a large piece of fabric but was told it would cost me $15 to belong to the sewing club and only members could use the tables. You must buy your name tag even for relatively short stays and there is no refund. They only take checks and money orders for rent so don't expect to use cash or credit card. We don't use checks and it wasn't mentioned when we phoned to get a spot, so it came as quite a surprise and we had to scramble to find a way to pay. The office staff is without a doubt the worst we have encountered in the 13 years we've been on the road. I don't know if that is the way they are naturally, or if Cal-Am trains their staff to be like this. I won't be finding out because this is the last time I ever stay at a Cal-Am park. When we checked in we were given the total cost for the 2-1/2 months we would be here and we paid it and our receipt gave the in and out dates and the total and that it was paid. A month later I went in to pay the utility bill and was told they didn't charge enough and they wanted another $150.00. I pointed out that my receipt said I was paid up but the clerk couldn't (wouldn't) do anything about it so the next month I talked to the office manager. The reason for the delay was the holiday season. She also said that we just hadn't paid enough and they wanted more and that our rent was only paid up to that day and if we wanted to stay to the date I originally had asked for we had to pay the extra money or leave. She obviously had been coached and had her mind made up long before I arrived. I had plans already made so we couldn't leave so we had to pay the extra cost. I am quite sure that legally I didn't have to because my receipt clearly stated that I was paid up but I had no idea how to fight it, so I paid. NEVER EVER will I come back to this park and strongly advise that if you do decide to come here that you get everything in writing and don't assume that a paid in full invoice means anything to these people.

This is a beautiful site and a good place to get away from it all because there is absolutely no phone service here; you must go all the way back to the highway. Satellite service is OK if you get the right spot. The sites on the upper level have a great view. The road up is steep but not so bad it would be hard to get there. No services on the upper level. Some of the sites have covered patios, and there are firepits. On top of the daily fee (quoted price is for power and water site) there is a $10 reservation fee. There is a small store and post office in the town about two miles away. I probably won't be back, but it would be a very nice place to stay for a while for some peace and quiet.

The management and staff are great. The park is very tight and all gravel so very dusty. They do have a clubhouse with activities later in the year but nothing to do now except golf. We saw everything there was to see in the area after two days and that includes Mexico. Not a real snowbird Mexican town. Only draw would be dentist and pharmacies. We probably will never return to this area, but if we did we would stay here because of the cost (PA rate $62 a week plus electric).

This park had easy access on and off highways. Close to shopping, walking distance to grocery store. Very nice office staff and owner. Good size sites for large rigs. Grass and trees. The wi-fi was good when it was on but the owner said they were having trouble with the supplier. Quiet. We would stay here again.

We stayed with the PA rate of $15 per night. This is not a fancy RV park, and the landscaping was a bit rough, but it is autumn, and nothing looks that great this time of year. There is a catch & release pond. The manager is super friendly and helpful. They have a book exchange room with seating and a computer and printer for your use and an activity room, but I didn't check it out. Too early in the season for anything to be going on anyway. The wi-fi reception was good and fast. The bathroom was clean but strange. It was one little building with a toilet, sink, shower, hot water tank, washer and dryer. I don't know what happens if you are doing laundry and someone wants the bathroom. This is a good place to stay while touring the museum and white sands. Right on road, but not much in the way of road noise. Not a super busy highway. I would stay here again.

Coming from the north you must be very vigilant about watching for the exit because you have to go through the weigh station. If you miss it you have to go into Raton and then backtrack a few miles. The GPS is useless with this park. The view is breathtaking. They no longer give a Passport America discount because 'a customer was rude', a pretty sketchy reason in my opinion. Wi-fi limited to 25mb/day and you are not allowed to do anything but e-mail (no Facebook for instance). The sites are gravel and not too close to each other. We would stay here again if in the area but not a place to stay long-term I don't think.

This is quite a bare bones RV park. Good for overnight though as it is easy access from the highway and has all the good services one would like. The Wi-Fi is strong, the cable has many channels, the spots are large and the management is very nice. This is the second time we have stayed here and it has improved from the last time. They are making improvements all the time. They also have rooms to rent. Verizon works here.
