Sundance RV Resort (55+ park), Yuma, Arizona

Date of Stay: January, 2018 - $18.00
Overall Rating:

Cal-Am bought this park in 2015 and built a new ballroom, and a new outdoor pool area. The activities are non-stop, with beautifully decorated theme events. Lots of happy hour activity with live music in the new outside pool area. Great management with friendly staff, dances every Friday night, plus special performances throughout the season. Excellent new sport courts for pickleball, bocci ball, shuffleboard, and curling. Most of the 500 spaces are filled with park models in their own village setting with the transient RV sites in the front of the park. There is some traffic noise in the RV section as the park runs along the I-8 corridor. Easy on/off access. First class utilities, excellent power, cable included. Verizon cell is good. Located in the Foothills area of Yuma within 3 minutes drive to restaurants, supermarkets, and pharmacies. The RV sites are narrow with only a few pull-thrus, not appropriate for big rigs. Some trees but mostly open, so satellite reception should be good. Overall an excellent facility for rigs under 36 feet. We camped at Sundance RV Resort (55+ park) in a Motorhome.

The Palms RV Resort, Yuma, Arizona

Date of Stay: September, 2015 - $7.00
Overall Rating:

The rate reflects the nightly off-season rate in September at $200 per month. In Oct. it jumps from $33 to $44 in high season Jan-Mar. The best rate is to stay the season (6 months) when it averages $20 plus electricity.

Beautiful park, as already expressed here, but the management is not very professional. I was never able to get a correct answer out of the registration person (my guess is there is not a proper training program in place). They charge a $100 electrical deposit against the final bill. After several tries, I finally got all the paperwork done by the next day.

Even though the park was closed for several months, they did not start oiling the streets until after the park opened. The power was off for several hours at different times during one of Yuma's monsoon storms.

I was able to secure a space to park my sixteen year old motorhome after sending a photo. The park policy is maximum 10 years old. We camped at The Palms RV Resort in a Motorhome.

Yuma's temps stay in the 100's until about mid-Oct., so make your plans accordingly. Short freeway hop to the large commercial mall. Yuma has the largest flea market in the state, great place to shop for RV items, carpets, patio chairs, and most anything.

Twin Palms RV Park, Mesa, Arizona

Date of Stay: May, 2015 - $18.00
Overall Rating:

This tiny park is well groomed with small flowering trees when I was there in April (no shade). Any rig under 34 feet should fit in any of the 20 spaces arranged in a U-shape. Very nice bathroom (single use) and small laundry ($2 load). No other facilities are present.

Since it is the backyard of Steve's Cycle Shop (the owner), on Main Street in Mesa, the noise is right there. Roaring motorcycle noise plus regular traffic made it unpleasant to spend a month there.

It is on the east side of Mesa, close to carpet and awning shops and many RV sales lots. If you are in the market for an RV, there are several within walking distance. Camping World is across the street.

The daily rate listed here is based on $425 monthly fee (includes $10 electric meter reading fee, plus a $15 Trash fee) plus all the other fees charged including electricity.

When you check out, another $10 meter fee (owner checks the meters so he charges for his time (2x $10) to read the meter when you check in/out), plus water/septic/trash charges and a $10 key charge (refundable). There is an $8 billing charge plus 13 cents per KWh, which is about average for the area.

The site rental paperwork is the same as though you are renting an apartment/house rather than an RV site. He does let you fill out the paperwork and return it to him.

There is a $250 deposit required at time of reservation which you must get refunded after the utilities are deducted and the keys returned. If you are leaving the area, don't plan on departing Sunday or Monday as the shop is closed. We camped at Twin Palms RV Park in a Motorhome.

Nearby there are two supermarkets, Fry's and Safeway. K-Mart is also nearby. The irrigation canal, with a concrete walking/biking path, runs right by the park; daytime entrance from within the park, locked at dusk.

Glenhaven Estates (formerly Ambassador Downs MH & RV Park), Mesa, Arizona

Date of Stay: April, 2015 - $15.00
Overall Rating:

I really enjoyed my stay here, a very good value for the cost (apparently a year-round price). It is difficult to find a reasonably-priced RV park this close to the Gilbert/Chandler area. The Manager made me feel right at home.

My stay lasted four months during the summer season. Due to the time of year, it was very quiet. The small RV sites are clustered together among the park models. At this time of year, there were no neighbors in my section except a few park model occupants.

The park is old and the electric meters could use a paint job, but the laundry room, restroom facilities, and community center were kept immaculate. The pool was small but well maintained. We camped at Glenhaven Estates (formerly Ambassador Downs MH & RV Park) in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

If you are looking to upgrade or buy an RV, this park is right in the middle of several RV new and consignment lots. It is few blocks from supermarkets, a permanent farmer's market and several restaurants. Located not far from the new transit line, you can park your car and hop aboard to downtown Phoenix museums.

Crazy Horse RV Park, Tucson, Arizona

Date of Stay: March, 2015 - $12.00
Overall Rating:

This is a hidden gem if you need to be close to the Fairgrounds for an event. Tucson is an expensive area, with most parks charging monthly fees in excess of $500. The daily rate listed here is based on the monthly rate of $350. The sites are wider than many parks here, all gravel without patios, but the 50A power and water pressure were satisfactory. It was quiet even though two major truck stops were located nearby. There is a $70 electricity deposit required at check in. We camped at Crazy Horse RV Park in a Motorhome.

Near the Fairgrounds, airport and military bases on the southeast side of Tucson. Two major truck stops here just off the I-10. Restaurant in Triple T has surprisingly good food.

Tra-Tel Tucson RV Park, Tucson, Arizona

Date of Stay: February, 2015 - $12.00
Overall Rating:

This is a small park and is overwhelmed by winter visitors. The utilities did not handle all the traffic. For the first two weeks I did not have enough power to run my microwave. As visitors left and I was moved to a 50A site, the power improved to adequate, barely. This is probably the lowest priced park in Tucson and it is obvious no money is put back into the park.

The rate listed here is based on a monthly rate incl. electricity. Management is very nice and tries to be as helpful as possible with what they have to offer.

Surprisingly, the traffic noise from the nearby I-10 freeway was not an issue. Just so you know, this park is located in the northern section of Tucson and a long way from the Fairgrounds where most of the special activities like rallies occur. We camped at Tra-Tel Tucson RV Park in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

Located in the Northern part of Tucson, you are close to the two major attractions, Tohono Chul Park and the Tucson Botanical Gardens. If you need to get your hair done, see Brenda at Cut Above, close by on Oracle. The biggest Farmer's Market in Tucson is nearby at Rillito Racetrace on Saturday and Sunday. A must-see is the Mini-Time Machine, A Museum of Miniatures located in the northern area.

Carefree Manor RV Resort, Apache Junction, Arizona

Date of Stay: December, 2014 - $20.00
Overall Rating:

This park is primarily park models with small, narrow sites for RVs. The streets are also narrow. There are some deadend streets, so be careful when approaching your assigned site. Management was accommodating when changing sites was necessary. Nice non-coin, cardreader laundry but expensive. Pool just refinished, pool patio remodeled. Friendly neighbors, pet friendly park. We camped at Carefree Manor RV Resort in a Motorhome.

Golden Sun RV Resort (55+ park), Apache Junction, Arizona

Date of Stay: December, 2014 - $3.00
Overall Rating:

Although the spaces are small and narrow (limited to under 34 ft), the sewer hose connection is under the rig. This makes for an awkward setup. Separate section for transient RVs. The rest of the park contains park models. Facilities are satisfactory, there is a nice fitness center, ballroom with line dancing classes. Great value thru Thousand Trails. Also Passport America at $21 per night. There are better values in town if paying full price. We camped at Golden Sun RV Resort (55+ park) in a Motorhome.
