This is a great little park. We stayed there on our way north in the spring, so it was off-season and running as a bare-bones operation. One small issue was that the WiFi password didn't work and there was no one there to talk to about it. The park is beautifully maintained and tidy, with self-registration at this time of year. We really feel good inside when we stay at parks that take your money on the honor system. Kudos to you! We'll definitely stay there again.

We love staying at this park on our way south in the fall and on our way home in the spring. It's our third time staying there overnight. We would give this park a 10 if not for the narrow interior roads, which can be dicey when you're trying to back in to park. We enjoy trains, and hearing them going by the park about 1/4 mile away at night doesn't bother us, but it might bother trainophobes. Otherwise this park is just wonderful. The park office is usually closed when we go through in the off-season, and they rely on people paying on the honor system, which we love. This park is right on the Columbia River and is quite secluded, despite being within a mile of the interstate highway. We will always stay here again. By the way, on our way out in the morning we picked up breakfast at a small eatery beside the Chevron station near the freeway entrance. Can't remember the name of the establishment, but it is the "Home of the Bozo Burger." It has excellent breakfast burritos and breakfast muffins, and their coffee is great.

The rate is based on a monthly stay. We stayed here during March, and the rate was $750 per month. Staff is friendly and helpful, and security staff is very friendly. The park is immaculately clean, and in a convenient area of town. We gave it a lower rating because there are no activities other than the pool, a fitness room and a restaurant. We asked about bingo, etc and they said that the only activities they do in this park are seminars and RV rallies. We didn't mind, as we had lots of things to do and see in Tucson, but the price seems very high for a park with no activities. It seems very much to be a transient park, with very few long-term residents. It's probably not the kind of place where you would want to spend the winter. We would stay here again, mainly because there isn't much else that compares in quality in Tucson.

The rate is based on $390 a month for a premium pull-through site. This park was clean and had wide roads; some staff were friendly and others were abrupt and rude. We stayed for a month and didn't participate in any activities, but we heard that the activities director is a dynamo. There were lots of RVers staying in the park who had Harley Davidsons and other motor equipment, and it was unpleasantly loud at times. Wi-Fi was useless, but we have a Datajack modem that we used instead. A neighbor in the park told us that the park charges a low rental rate, but that they nickel and dime on other things. For example, he said that they charge $5 to read your meter at the end of the month, or $5 per day to store car trailers, etc that you aren't allowed to store on your site. Overall, it is a clean and adequate park. We may stay here again.

We booked at this park with an annual membership, which is $3000 (it comes to $500/month for six months). Due to personal reasons we left after three months. This park is lovely, clean and fairly new. The managers are pleasant and helpful. The park is in a round shape with an inner road and and outer one. There is a nice recreation hall, swimming pool area, barbecue and table area, library, billiard room with one table, and an exercise room. All are excellent, except the exercise room, which looks like a token gesture more than anything. It's only about 10' x 10' in size. Otherwise it is an excellent park. The location is Apache Junction, and if you like to walk in the desert, it is close. There is a good view of the Superstition mountains to the east. This is the type of park that has winter-long visitors, and there are quite a few activities going on. Other than the personal reasons that will not bring us back, we would stay here again.

This is an attractive RV park, with good landscaping. It is about ten miles north of Reno. However, the interior roads are so narrow that you can't drive your rig down them when there are other RVs parked, as vehicles are sticking out due to short pull-through sites. So, you have to go around the perimeter road. The manager was gruff and a bit of a bully. He told us that the price was $36.75 per night, and that included the 10% Good Sam discount. At first he refused to take our $5 Good Sam coupon (and said he's never accepted one before), but he finally relented. Our final price was $36 with tax, which is interesting, since recent reviewers said that they paid just $34 a night. This guy does no favors to his park. The price is too high for what you are getting - let's face it, it's just a place to park your RV and plug in. They don't send in maids to turn down the bed and put chocolates on your pillows. The site was not quite level and we just fit with our fifth wheel and truck, as we didn't unhook. Other than that the park is really nice. Although it's on the highway it is quiet. Wi-Fi is fabulous, and there are about 60 cable channels. We would stay here again, especially if the staff were more pleasant. We would have given it a higher rating if we didn't feel that we'd been rooked at the front counter.

This is an excellent park that we use on our way south in the fall. The price is great, plus we were able to use our $5 Good Sam coupon. Wi-Fi is good as well. This looks like a large state park, with large sites and large grassy areas between them. The only reason we didn't give it a higher rating was that some of the roads are narrow and not suitable for big rigs, and the fact that there is no cable TV available at the park. We will definitely stay there again.

This is a lovely park. The park was clean and well kept and the managers are kind and helpful. The only negatives about this park are the free Wi-Fi and cable TV. The Wi-Fi is free, which is nice, but it is virtually useless. It was slower than molasses and most of the time it timed out before you got to your selected website. The cable TV had just 12 channels. Despite these two big negatives, we would stay there again.

This is a beautiful park, and the clientele seems reasonably friendly. The location is 1/4 mile from an exit on the I-75, and two miles from an exit to a major shopping area. However, the organized activities are limited, considering what we are paying for rent. They have so far put on a few evening events. There is regular shuffleboard and bridge. Yoga is offered for a fee. The only other exercise class is water aerobics which has happened only occasionally due to cold weather and an unheated pool. If you are looking for a park where people stop on the street and strike up a conversation, this probably isn't it. While people do stroll and drive their golf carts around, it isn't easy to meet them. It just doesn’t have the relaxed feeling of many other parks. There is a somewhat snooty attitude here. This park is poorly run, considering that it is costing us $1400 per month to stay here. The irrigation system has been on the fritz since before we arrived, and we have yet to see the grass watered. The swimming pool has been unheated all winter since the pump is broken and still hasn't been fixed. Many site lampposts are not working. Ours wasn't, and it took over a month to get it fixed. We’ve found that the office staff is not particularly friendly. The main purpose of the management seems to be that of selling sites. We rented our site, and one day received a surprise visit from the salesman. We were shocked when he informed us that we could be moved at any time if he sold our site. He also told us that we were not allowed to use the storage shed on our site. No one had told us this, either when we reserved or when we checked in. We continue to use the storage shed and have not been bothered again. As far as we are concerned we are paying a lot of money and it should include everything that sits on the site. If it doesn't, we should have been told that when we reserved. It seems as if they treat renters like second-class citizens, and owners are the important ones. Friends of ours who are also renting here had the salesman show up one afternoon, without warning, to show the site to prospective buyers. He was poking around in the shed when our friend came and asked him what he thought he was doing. Our friend asked him to leave. Finally, right behind our site (outside the park) is a recycling plant of some sort, and all day we hear loud truck noises, crashing truck boxes and ringing phones from about 5 am to the end of the day. Overall, we feel that we are not getting our money's worth, considering that this is one of the most expensive RV resorts in the US. We will not stay here again.

A beautiful park with comfortable amenities. Easy access to the interstate. We would definitely stay there again if we were in the area.
