A members only park. RV parking is behind the lodge. There are many RV's in storage here (15 or so). The 5 transient spaces might be reservable with a phone call, though the Elks RV book doesn't indicate this. The book indicates a 2 week maximum stay; however,during our visit there were 3 rigs here with over a month in the same spot. We saw one other rig spend 1 night during our 5 night stay. It would appear that the lodge is flexible for whatever a person needs. Shopping is nearby.

A members only park. Clean and well maintained. Friendly check in by bartender. Nice overview of the city and valley from your easy chair. My GPS shows the address in the middle of the freeway. Keep driving and you'll find the lodge 1/4 mile up the hill. No freeway noise at the parking area. Another fine example of Elks hospitality.

There was nothing special about this park. Check in service was mediocre bordering on poor. We arrived at noon and check in is 1:00. We were told this at least 3 times as we waited for them to complete other busy work (one person was folding brochures, one was assigning sites to internet reservations) before we were allowed to check in. Sites are minimally adequate in width for a large rig w/4 slides. GARBAGE IS PICKED UP BETWEEN 0530 AND 0700 EVERY DAY!!! (including Sunday) If you are in the park you will hear them bang the dumpsters. We happened to be assigned a space directly in front of one dumpster. It was LOUD. We could also hear them dump the next closest dumpster down the street. I complained and was brushed off. I filled out the "how was your visit" e-mail and got a form letter back saying they are looking into my complaint. 30 days afterwards I've still heard nothing else. We will not return.

A members only park. Near the top of the hill with golf course attached. Host on site. Sewer dump in parking lot. Steak night is Wed. and Fish night on Fri. Very quiet and peaceful location. Near town for any shopping you need to do. This is a regular stop for us, we spend 3-7 days every time.

A clean and nice place to stop. Under new management when we stopped this year. Be sure to double check your GPS and get off the freeway at the right exit. A few years ago our unit wanted us to get off and take a 20 mile trip the wrong way. The web site has the correct exit listed. It is a regular stop for us. You'll enjoy it too.

A well kept and peaceful state park. Full hookups with 50 amp power. In October during our visit only about 6 other campers in the park. The lake is apparently low much of the time so the boat launches are at your risk. Close to freeway, you'll hear the noise when you're outside. Picnic table and cover at most sites.

Date of Stay:

An Elk Member only site. Six back in sites on the edge of the golf course. A little unlevel and a swale to back over. When you look at it you'll wonder if your rig can back in and get out again. My 43' rig did fine. Caretaker advised he was "turning off utilities" at end of week for the winter. Lodge and golf clubhouse is up the hill from the RV parking area. DO NOT DRIVE UP THE HILL! Friendly check in. Quiet and peaceful at night.

An Elks member only park. An excellent place to stay. Parking on grass which looks like it may be soft when very wet. It was dry when we've been here (3 times) so I haven't seen wet first hand. An extremely friendly club with golf course attached. The absolute best prime rib dinner. If you can be here on the last Wed. of the month it is fork tender.

Date of Stay:

A members only park. No host on site at the time of our visit. Long pull-through spaces which become back in spaces when the lot is half full. Easy access for largest rigs (we're 63' w/toad) Plenty of grassy area for kids or pets. Near all types of shopping, restaurants, and fuel. Another fine example of Elks hospitality.

Date of Stay:

An area for Elks members only. Nice spaces with grassy areas. Has Camp Host at times. Water is turned off at end of season when freezing is expected. Water is always available at Lodge, to the right of the entrance. Dump on site for members. Some concern if you leave your toad in the parking lot rather than at your RV. RR at bottom of hill but we did not hear it at night. Activities at lodge included football Sunday when we were there.

Date of Stay:

A space for members only. Friendly staff. Easy parking with large lot. Parked against edge of lot with only one other MH. Close to restaurants, auto parts, and other shopping.

A fine offering for Elks members. Paved lot is next to lodge building. Spaces are striped out and with slides out on both sides my coach I use every inch of the space between the lines. Electric is 30 amp only and has had some work since last year, but needs more. Some outlets were not working when we were here. Lodge is near downtown area but in residential/quiet setting so no highway noise. An excellent overnight stop or spend a couple of days and scout the town. The river is nearby with parks and daytime activity.

Although some listings say this park is in Apache Junction it is another 10 miles or so east of there. If you are looking to use it as a spot for Spring Training games, it is just too far for comfort. Spaces are wide with concrete pads. Cal Am charges seperately for garbage service and sewer/water service (no option to not have either service, you will pay) as well as electricity for month long stays or more. There are two dog parks, the one by the entrance near where our space was is all gravel, no grass. There is only one sign, partially covered by shrubery telling where the check-in is if the guard isn't at the entrance. Trees hang over the roadway and the check-in parking, they seem not to be concerned about trimming them. Another oddity is the cash/checks only payment policy. For large parks this seems odd. We did enjoy each space having a garbage can so no walks to the garbage. With a few minor changes this park would be a great place to just get away for a while if you were only going to the Phoenix metro area once or twice. 28 miles to Tempe city limits is a long drive. Goodyear ballpark, Peoria etc... is over an hour drive each way.

An Elks only RV park with parking on slightly tilted asphalt. Easy leveling, just not dead flat. Sites are around edge of parking lot and have a slight wedge shape. Most are wide enough for all but the biggest rigs. Our 43' 4 slide goes to the painted lines on both sides. During our stay there were enough empty spaces to park every other site and have plenty of room between rigs. Host on site. Another fine Elks member benefit.

Date of Stay:

An Elks lodge RV park for members only. Large level lot with gravel. Average spacing between rigs. Dump on site, wheeled cart (blue boy) available for dumping without moving. Near Legoland. Host on site. Near shopping, 1 mile to beach.
