We have always loved ESRV... It is an absolutely fantastic setting and very natural area. We have always loved the peace and quiet here at night but this stay changed our feeling about "Their Rules" They have a rule which clearly states that quiet hours are 10pm to 7am every night. Persons not cooperating with these quiet hours will be asked to leave the property. Great! Well, at 1:00am, we were awoken by a Diesel Pusher motorhome pulled up beside our motorcoach. We were fast asleep and the coach fixed that! The arriving party moved garbage cans, just about took out our vehicle and just barely made it into their site... it took 15 minutes for the parking process to end. Following that, setup was another 15 minutes... slamming doors, talking and other noises at 1:30am! The next morning we left and went to the office... I mentioned all of this at hich point the office staff said "Well, the people that came in, had a reservation for that site... They were entirled to come in and occupy that site" I mentioned the quiet hours and felt that they were not adhered to in this case. The woman at the desk rudely responded "They had paid for their site and were entitled to occupy the site... What would you do if you had paid for the site"? I said it was extremely inappropriate to bring in a Diesel Pusher that late at night... that it was very inconsiderate of the campers who were asleep in the park... to have to tolerate this noise during "quiet hours". My words meant nothing. Why come into an RV park and park in the dark while waking everyone. Not cool at all.

If you are expecting WiFi here, you won't get any signal or connectivity. The management will blame you, your lack of computer knowledge or equipment... it is a HUGE time waster! The problem with their WiFi system is the only issue. Another thing... every time we come here, the pool is closed... they work on it more than any other pool around. They offer nothing but an apology. If you want a pool, make sure you check in advance! Friends were told that children are not permitted in the park or especially in the pool. The kids and family were asked to leave the pool immediately. Handled very poorly. This park is an adults only park and are not kid-friendly... save the frustration on your grandkids and their parents!

We were a little concerned about space size and power as some had posted. Upon getting here, the sites are of a very good size and the power appears to be great. Yes, it is a different RV park in that it is not "cookie cutter" but that's what makes it so different and interesting. The people in the office and throughout the park are really friendly and it is so nice to not be invaded by Planes, Trains and Automobiles. The sky is so dark at night and the only noise is from the wild Donkeys and Coyotes. I think that if you are looking for a huge, cookie cutter park near an airport, train tracks, or freeway, this place isn't for you. If you like to see the desert scenery and couple it with hiking and biking in the area you will love it. Tucson is not always populated by the winter snowbird group but it has a lot to offer and this park is in a great location to see it all. The quiet here is deafening! Love it!

Nice park but a few concerns. Many of the sites are decomposed granite and are quite messy if it rains. We tried to get a concrete site and they were all full for weekends only. Wi-Fi here was fabulous. Just so you know, there is not a lot to do around here that isn't about wine. We liked it but a little more to do would have been nice.

We love this park! Very friendly and helpful staff and very friendly folks that stay here. Also very dog friendly. This park is spotless clean and exceptionally well run at all levels. The pricing here is excellent and reflects the "simple" and value-conscious nature of the park. This park gives you everything you need and spares the stuff that you don't need. We have never stayed in a park longer than a month or two... here, we stayed four months! We are returning for the winter of 2012/2013 and look forward to being here again. This park, dollar for dollar is the best value and quality RV park that we know of. Give it a try and you will be pleasantly surprized.

This is an absolute gem! The fact that there is no sewer is a good thing; it encourages folks to move on rather than stay beyond the two week limit. The scenery here is fabulous and there are awesome hikes around the park. Do the Wind Cave and Pass Mountain Loop; they are very nice. Sites are huge and very nice firepits, etc., but beware, some sites are not level, and you will need to block up your wheels in some cases. Take some good, solid lumber with you when you go here!

What a great park for cycling and hiking! Nice also to have a brand-new mall outside the gate. We walked down for dinner at the Olive Garden and a movie and walked back to the park. You will never know you are near a major city but everything is very close, but yet, so far away! As with all state parks, no sewer, but that allows turnover so everybody gets a turn in this beautiful park.

This park offers what a lot of parks should: A clean, well run park with proper sites and amenities without. It has great, wide sites and good location for all stores and restaurants. We have really come to enjoy it here and appreciate the good rates.

If you plan on staying in this park and want Wi-Fi, make sure you get an off-site solution. The system here is very inconsistent and spotty. Also, cell-based systems for Wi-Fi don't work well here as the cell towers are not close.

An oasis in the middle of the desert. Only three big issues here that you should know about: 1) Although the park is very grassy and green, the grass is over the desert sand. Ants inhabit the desert here and are a huge population. We had ants all around our 2 sites and beware, they BITE and will leave an itchy and open welt. 2) Sprinklers run 24/7 here to keep it green and growing. Your coach WILL get sprinkler water on it no matter what. It is VERY hard and mineralized. 3) With the beautiful trees comes what trees produce: yellow, pollen powder can, at times, cover everything you own. You will spend a lot of time cleaning here but forget it. Don't clean until you've left. The pollen powder is like a fine powder. It will, however, go into fabrics and other porous materials and stain/affect them. Be forewarned.

Great park for Alberta. EXCELLENT WiFi and amenities. We were in on the twice yearly snowbird transitioning rate. Great location and great amenities. New operators also.

This is a great spot for a reasonable cost in the PS area. We love the location and the walking around the reservoir. The only thing this park lacks is sewer. If they had that, it would be so much better. Also, they do cash-grab a $1.00 pet fee per pet / day and I personally oppose it but the park is well priced and I could live with the pet fee in this case. Wi-Fi here was by a host's router and was awesome! Just get the sewer and I'll give it a 10!

Love this park! Great facilities, sites, hookups, location. Price is a little high for the full hookup sites but they are first class! Couldn't find one complaint about this place. I almost always find SOMETHING wrong but here is almost perfect. We thoroughly enjoyed it here and will definitely return as soon as we can.

We really were excited about coming here. It quickly faded as the creek had overflowed the roadway (common apparently) and we had to take an alternate site. The next day we went to our site and it was on the river: a very visually pretty site. Now for the negatives: Pet fees: they charge a dollar for each pet per day. This is a cash grab and whoever pays this fee is cooperating with their cash grab. Freeway noise is absolutely relentless and contrary to previous reviews, is absolutely brutal! You cannot escape this throughout the entire park. Not necessarily the park's fault, but there are a lot of holes in the ground: we found out only once we had left the park, that our motorhome was infested with Deer Mice. After three days of cleaning, sealing and trapping / killing mice, we are getting it under control. That is until we clear the 14 day "clear" period of getting Hantavirus, if these Deer Mice are infected. Once again, not the park's fault but there is a real rodent population in this park. Beware and prepare to seal and trap your RV appropriately.

This place is absolutely awful! Loud highway and train noise is only outdone by the rude and mean staff! We had to have a place for the night and they said that we could stay but for only one night. Apparently it is due to the 55 rule. I am going to open a 55 and under park in Arizona and if any of these miserable people show up they will not be let in!
