Date of Stay: January, 2016
All sites are privately owned and can be rented on a monthly basis either through Surprise Realty or directly from an owner if you can find an owner who is renting as all these listings seem to be restricted to the bulletin board in the Resort. We rented through the Realty Company and the standard rate is $800 per month plus electric on a per day rate based on the RV length. For RVs of 36-38 feet in length the rate is a flat $3 per day or $5 per day for RVs over 38 feet. The sites are very large averaging 45 feet wide and 60 feet deep although ours was deeper as we backed onto a perimeter wall. Each site is different as they are all privately owned. Ours was all graveled with a concrete parking pad for a car with some palm trees, cacti and grapefruit tree. We found people to be very friendly although we found those in their owned sites to pretty much stick to themselves. We don't recommend staying here in December as the Activities Office shut down the day before we arrived on Dec 12 and didn't open again until Jan 4. As a result you couldn't rent DVDs or buy any show tickets for January performances. They also don't host/organize a Christmas Day dinner. The pickleball lessons also did not resume until Jan 4. Security is good here with no one being allowed entry to the Resort unless their names have been provided to the Security Gate at the Main Entrance. The location is great for shopping with everything located within a few miles. There are many clubs here each charging a fee to join. The pickleball fee is just $15 per season, Mah Jongg is $10, and the woodworking shop is $35. There is also a Lapidary room, Stained Glass/glass fusion, ceramics, Quilting, and Crafts rooms with each group having their own annual fee. The woodcarvers group was a small one and didn't provide anything in the way of materials or instruction. The above named activities did all provide some form of instruction & projects for newcomers.

This park is definitely a "Resort" with first class amenities and beautiful grounds. The sites are large at 40' wide and deep enough for even 45' coaches. The resort has every sport available and the cost is minimal should you chose to join a club to play regularly. We found both staff and guests to be very friendly. Our only complaint is that the Ballroom where the dances and live entertainment are held is too small for the size of this resort so getting tickets to attend these events is difficult if not impossible. 3 Free Computers are available in the Library and Wi-Fi is available there as well as at the Main Activities Building and Laundry Room. Dish Network through the Cable is available at every RV site at a very reasonable rate. We had our own Dish Network cable modem which saved us the cost of renting this making it very inexpensive for us! We loved the Resort but don't care for Casa Grande so would probably not stay here again. If all you want to do is stay in the Resort then this is definitely the place to stay!

The staff were very friendly and efficient. The pull-thru sites are long so no need to unhook toad and a good width with trees in between sites. Sites are gravel. Wi-Fi was free and worked well. There is some highway noise and noise from semi-trailers at the Truck stop just down the road but not enough to keep one awake at night. We would stay here again.

Nightly rate based on monthly rate. We spent 4 months at this resort and loved our time there. We have been at this resort a number of times before but never for more than 2 months. The owner has done, and is continuing to do, improvements to the resort including resurfacing the tennis courts, opening up a Gift Shop, painting murals on a number of the amenity/public rooms, to name just a few. This summer we have been told that 4 new pickleball courts will be constructed bringing the total to 8. This is the friendliest park we have ever been to. There are so many things to do, all for very little or no cost including ceramics, pottery, lapidary, silversmithing, games, numerous exercise/fitness classes, etcetera. The bicycling from the park is the best anywhere. You can exit the pet gate and be right on the Santa Cruz River paved pedestrian/bike path. The city is now constructing the missing piece of this trail that will mean over 30 miles of paved bike trails without the need to ride on city streets. The park brings in first class professional entertainment and a ticket costs no more than $12. We will definitely be back next winter!

Rate is based on monthly rate of $705. Despite what is shown here, this is NOT a 55 plus park. I asked the Manager when I issued a complaint regarding screaming children in the site beside us and was advised that this is an "Active Adult" park! This being Spring Break there were quite a number of young children in the park and I was advised by other guests that at Christmastime there were also quite a lot of children at the pool. The grounds, pool area and public spaces are very nice. If you are a pickleball player or want to learn this sport there are four new courts and free paddles and balls are available. The park hosts numerous free events such as live music at the poolside patio 6 days a week from 11-2 pm, Wine and Cheese Reception every Friday at 3:30 pm, to name just a few. They also put on dances every Saturday night with a different live band and the cost is just $8 each and you can bring your own beverages and snacks. Other live performances are also put on which run about $20 per person. On the negative side, if you are staying for anything less than 3 months the park will not let you reserve a specific site. If you are a small rig this is probably not an issue, but if you have a 38 foot or longer unit with slide-outs many of the sites will not accomodate you. My recommendation to anyone choosing to stay here is to leave your RV in the check-in area and ask the Park staff to escort you in a golf cart to the available sites and once you have selected one that you like and will fit into, then move onto the site. We moved twice and spoke to others who moved 5 times before finally finding a site that would accomodate their rig. Another negative, is that there is NO dog/pet section; the whole park is available for them. As a result we had barking dogs at 3 sites surrounding us. Despite rules that state dogs can not be left tethered outside when no one is present, it happens and complaints to the Park Manager changed nothing. It seems if you are a full-timer in the Park you can do whatever you want since the park is desperate for the revenue. Wi-Fi is available for a fee but it is our recommendation that if you are staying for one month or more that you subscribe to Time Warner at the same price. A Time Warner Rep will come to your site and arrange for the service. Shopping and numerous restaurants are located close by. If you want to stay in Hemet this is the only RV park to stay at but given our experience we aren't sure if we would stay here again.

Rate based on monthly stay (30 nights). This is a lovely, clean, well laid out RV park with wide, deep sites. All RV pads are gravel and there is a separate concrete car parking area and large bricked patio. Sites are private as they are surrounded by lovely hedges. We had site #73 (north facing) which gave us a nice view of San Diego Bay right from inside our motorhome. A large number of sites offer a view of the Bay as they are terraced. If you love to walk or bike this is definitely the park to stay at as the Bayshore Bikeway is a short ride away, and from here you can ride the Silver Strand all the way to Coronado or all the way to Chula Vista Harbor and even downtown San Diego. Imperial Beach is also just a mile away which is a very nice public beach. The park staff are very friendly and helpful. I was most impressed to learn that they refund the cost of laundry debit cards ($5 cost) as well as any money left on your card when you check out. The free Wi-Fi worked very well. There are no amenities at this park except for the golf putting, chipping and driving cage but with so much to do in the area this wasn't a problem for our one month stay. There is a great grocery store within walking distance, and Costco is just a 15-20 minute drive. We would definitely stay at this park again.

Rate is based on monthly rate of $550. Park is targeted to those that want to buy/own a manufactured or rark model home. While there is a section of the park for RVs they have no signage directing RVs where to park to register nor set aside any parking for them once they are on the park grounds. They don't even have a website that promotes or provides any information! The sites are large and graveled. The roads are paved and there are street lights. There is an electric gate which is closed at night and the park and area is very safe and quiet. The office staff is not very customer service oriented. For example, there is no change machine in the laundry room and when I asked the office manager if she would sell me a roll of quarters I was told that I would have to go to a bank! The laundry room does not provide an ironing board or iron either. There are two tennis courts, shuffle board courts, horseshoe pits and bocce playing area. There isn't much in the way of organized activities which we were disappointed in. The Wi-Fi is terrible and costly at $30 per month and doesn't allow the use of Skype, Voice over Internet telephone service, or anything else except Web-based email. We would not stay at this park again.

Rate is based on monthly rate of $675. We have stayed at this park on 4 separate occasions and love it. The people are very friendly and there is so much to do here you need never leave (nor do you want to). Amenities include lapidary, ceramics, woodworking, wood carving, wine tasting, library, shuffleboard, pickleball, bocci, dancing, and much more! The sites are a good size all graveled with concrete patios. The park is close to lots of shopping, including a new Costco, huge theater complex,and restaurants. The park just installed fiber optic cable throughout the park and put in Wi-Fi hotspots at the pool and laundry rooms. Wi-Fi is free and it works very well. We think this is the best park in Tucson and possibly all of AZ. We will definitely be back again.

This is a small pretty park with spacious shaded sites. All sites are graveled and have a concrete patio with grass between the sites and one or more trees alongside. The park is located in a convenient location to all major attractions about a mile off highway 260 between the towns of Camp Verde and Cottonwood which has all of the retail shops and restaurants one could want or need. The park is located in a residential area so it is very quiet. The laundry room is spacious with a good number of washing machines and dryers and the washrooms and showers are clean. The owner is a very nice, helpful man. Upon arrival at the park the owner or one of his hosts, assists people with getting into their sites. Our only complaint, and it is a minor one, is that the Wi-Fi is a little up and down. When working, which was the majority of the time, it worked very well. We would definitely stay here again.

Rate includes all taxes and other fees. We stayed in the Resort side of the park which features beautifully landscaped huge sites measuring 40X80. We had site M32 facing the pond and fountain which was beautifully landscaped. The pool and washrooms are stunning although the pool water is too warm and provided no refreshment. With the temperature at around 90F and the intense sun here, I found it impossible to spend any time at the pool except in the early morning. The Wi-Fi is excellent. The location is very quiet despite being located on Hwy 191 as the sites are quite a ways off the highway and night traffic is light. The paved pedestrian/bike path is located opposite the park entrance and from here one can go north or south into town. All major attractions are very close by, and Moab just 5 minutes away has all of the services one needs. My complaints are that there is only one laundry room which is located in the campground side of the park and there are only 2 washers and dryers. My other complaint is that when RVs are parked on the entrance roadway registering, the entrance road becomes single lane so cars driving into the park have to park behind the RVs and wait for the traffic exiting the park to pass. The Resort side of the park is not yet finished in my opinion and for the price being charged should build wall to separate the two sides of the park rather than the plastic mesh fencing that exists today. This RV park, both sides, is still the best RV park in Moab and a great place to camp.

Park sites are a good size with good space between adjacent sites, and plenty long enough for our 39 foot MH with tow vehicle to park without unhooking. The shower floors were not clean when I used them in the late afternoon, being nothing more than painted concrete. The lights in the washrooms work on motion sensors. I ended up in the shower when the lights went out, and no matter how much I waved my arms around the lights would not come back on. I told the owner and she said that I had to learn to yodel! The Wi-Fi is terrible and only works from the gazebo adjacent to the office. I and a fellow camper spoke to the owner about it and she advised that since the tower they were homed in on was changed a week ago their service has deteriorated significantly and she will be working on getting it improved. This RV park is right against the highway and was very noisy all night.

As other reviewers have noted, we had to stop at the Trucker Centre and select a site. We were not happy about this change and told the staff this as we haven't stopped here in 2 years and had no idea which site we wanted! They are still running the shuttle van through the park if you want to go to the casino or they give you a number to call and they will come and get you. It was pouring rain so we called them for a pick-up and they arrived within minutes. We had an excellent buffet breakfast in the casino which had a great selection of hot food items that I haven't seen on a buffet before. The Wi-Fi worked great! Diesel prices at the Casino Fuel station are the best around as they do not charge an additional price for credit card payments plus the pumps are very easy to get into and out of. We will continue to stay here.

We read about this park on the RV Park Reviews website and decided to try it as there is nothing else in the Eugene area close to I-5 without being right up against it and we are glad we did! There are 5 long pull-thru sites and all were empty when we pulled in. The trees running along 4 of these sites might make satellite TV a challenge but for us we were able to pull it in. The roads and sites are all paved and there are some nice walking trails. You could hear the I-5 road noise slightly if you were outside but not from in the RV. Getting back onto I-5 northbound is also a breeze as you only have to continue north on Coburg Road at the entrance to the park and it is a short drive into Coburg and onto the I-5 with no doubling back. If you need fuel before getting onto the freeway there is also one of our favourite fueling stations right on the other side of the overpass at exit 199 called Fuel'N Go which has better prices than elsewhere in the area and there is no problem for any size RV getting into or out of the pump as this was designed as a commercial fueling station. We will definitely be making this park a regular stop-over on our way north.

The rate reflects the monthly rate of $639. We have stayed at this park on 3 previous occasions and love it. The staff, residents, and campers are all very friendly and there is so much to do that if you want you need never leave the park. They have 4 pickle ball courts, 2 tennis courts, wood carving, lapidary, woodworking shop, ceramics and clay studio, library, wine tastings, and live professional entertainment plus many other events. They have drying lines at two of the laundries which I love. The washrooms are spotless as are all of the other facilities. I am glad that for monthly guests departing in March they now offer the option to extend your stay and pay just $22.50 (including tax) per night. For the first time we were able to take advantage of this offer and glad it was available as the weather on the day we were due to depart was terrible and we couldn't have left. I highly recommend this park to anyone wanting to visit the Tucson area. There are a ton of things to do in the park and area so even if the weather isn't great you won't be bored.

We arrived on a Thursday afternoon expecting to be able to get a site for 2 nights but unfortunately were advised that all sites fully booked for every weekend now through February! The back-in sites, of which there are not many, are very long as are many of the back-ins. There is a huge distance between sites and in many cases trees are also growing between sites giving even more privacy. The washrooms were very nice and clean. There are a couple of nice trails one of which offers great views. Given how busy this park is I would recommend RVers planning on staying over a weekend to reserve their site or else you will be offered the privilege of paying $15 per night with no services to stay in the parking lot!
