In it's day, this was surely a classy place, but the buildings are a bit worn now. Everything is very clean and the staff do a good, friendly job. It's a bit overpriced for us at $240 a week, but we have friends in the are, so here we are. The laundry is clean with six washers and eight dryers. It is quiet and surrounded by the above average beauty of Arizona. We camped at De Anza RV Resort in a Motorhome.

Not overly impressed with this large park next to a busy, loud, four lane highway. Sites are gravel with good space between sites but mine did not have a picnic table. Lots of things to do for those who live here full-time during the winter. Good location to tour the area, easy in, easy out. If you go south then come back north to the park, you will pass thru a Border Patrol checkpoint, which slows you down a little but is not a problem. We camped at De Anza RV Resort in a Travel Trailer.

Amado to the north has a nice restaurant and Tubac to the south has golf and lots of shopping and historic things to see. We stayed 3 nights. The park next door is unkept, rather trashy so I recommend you not consider staying there, although it is a few dollars cheaper.

Large gravel space but would have preferred a pull thru. There was originally no picnic table at our site but camp host brought one over almost immediately. I felt very welcomed here. Joined a chair yoga class & Thai-chi several days a week. Pretty nice restaurant, enjoyed the whirlpool. Workout room, separate yoga room, nice library & pool. Had several pot lucks the month we were there. Bathrooms seemed to be newly updated but shower heads were a bit too 'hard' like needles on skin. Could really use a shower curtain between shower & dressing area or provide a different shower head to adjust. Love the green valley area. Lots to do. Went hiking into Santa Rita mtns. Tucson about 45 min away. Casino within 20 min. One thing to note; may not want to be on north end of park. There is large dog boarding & training center right next door and had lots of consistent barking. Will request spot on the other side of park next time. But will definitely be back. We camped at De Anza RV Resort in a Motorhome.

Tumacacori mission enjoyable. Walk along the DeAnza trail. Took a drive around the mountains to several wineries around Elgin. About a 45 min drive. Very pretty drive. If you go, take your own wine glass it will save you money as you will need to buy one for up to 5.00. You can use your glass at all the wineries. Never read that anywhere.

This is a super well-kept park. They have lots of amenities - a clubhouse, a large pool, a dog wash, a dog park/run, etc. Most of the park is paved and there are lots of small trees. Guests are expected to walk their dogs to exterior areas of the park or in the fenced dog park; no using your campsite for a dog potty. The two RV parks in Amado are both a considerable distance from grocery stores in Green Valley; they are side-by-side, both on the frontage road next to a major highway and also next to a noisy train stop. Spacing at this park is similar to the one next door; enough room for your RV, car, and a picnic table on a small slab patio. We camped at De Anza RV Resort in a Travel Trailer.

Tips for other Campers:

To cut down on the highway noise, get a spot way in the back. You'll still hear the train but you won't get so much freeway noise. Buy groceries before you arrive as it is a significant drive to the Safeway in Green Valley (20 minutes). Tucson is an hour away. Tubac, an artist's community, is near Amado. If you bring dogs, walk the either in the dog park area or in the back of the RV park. The front dirt strips (next to the frontage road) are full of thorns.

This is a seriously fine RV park. Superb facility and well-managed. This would be a great place to spend an extended stay, although we stayed just four nights. Campsites are spacious, many with great views of the mountains. Utilities are first class, public meeting places, such as fire ring and meeting
/activity building, are clean and cheerful. We camped at De Anza RV Resort in a Motorhome.

The park is your typical desert park. The park itself is very well kept. Buildings are old but well maintained. Internet (as we usually find) is not good. The staff was friendly. They have a restaurant on premise and we had the fish. One of the worst meals we have ever had. Can't speak for other items on the menu. Well located for local attractions. We would stay there again.

We would visited Ruby ghost town and would recommend it. It was about an hours drive from the park and does cost $12 to get in. There are about 24 buildings left still standing. Interesting. One surprise is they have a lake and white sand beach in the middle of the desert.

Stayed her for 2 weeks while visiting parents in Green Valley. Nightly rate is based on weekly rate. Sites are level and gravel. Sites near the highway have trees. Electric and cable in the older section (near the highway) are at the back of the site. Oddly, the water is next to the patios...you have to put a hose under your rig. Small concrete patio. WiFi is variable. We had no trouble picking it up with our external antenna. Neighbors next to us had major problems. Verizon gave 2 bars of 3G (unless you did a fresh reboot on your phone and place it in a window, then you could get 4G for a short while). Excellent ota tv and cable tv.

Hot tub is HOT the way a hot tub should be. Pool is warm. Only downside (at least in April) is that they are inside. Outside would be preferred this time of year.

Only 2 park models in the entire park, so it is mostly motor homes, etc. Found the sewing room too late for my stay. Extensive shop, which came in handy when my husband needed to drill some holes in a metal bar. Owners are very nice. Broasted chicken in the restaurant is to die for! We would definitely stay here again, due to it proximity to Green Valley.

As for the road noise, yes you can hear it. But it's not that bad. We've been sleeping with the windows open and it has not been an issue. We camped at De Anza RV Resort in a Motorhome.

I can not say enough wonderful things about this resort. A beautiful salt water pool (though on the cold side), a jacuzzi, a HUGE clubhouse. Lots of activities.

The snowbirders make a wonderful community, full of fun and activities. You can step out your back door and hike the desert.

The owners are good people. They're the sort you meet and walk away and say to yourself, "They are good people."

I'm trying to think of a negative to be fair and round out my review... but there is none. Great place, great people, wonderful people. Surrounding area great for exploration and learning.

And the view is spectacular, wake up every morning to the mountains. See the stars at night. We camped at De Anza RV Resort in a Motorhome.

Have stayed here the past 3 winters and like it very much. The winter weather here and the view are great. Lots to see in the area. They have a restaurant open on week-ends with a live band and dancing. There are craft rooms, a woodworking shop and a dog wash. The park is large with lots of room for walking. Already have reservations for next winter! We camped at De Anza RV Resort in a Motorhome.

Obviously, a lot of RVers love this campground, so I will try to provide as much information as I can as to why we did not care for this campground. First, the positives: The campground is very clean, neat, and orderly. All of the fellow campers that we encountered were friendly. There is a restaurant on site that folks seemed to really enjoy. The utilities were strong. There are lots of activities. The location is good for visiting the surrounding attractions and activities. So, why would we not return. The top reason would be the noise from the very close-by interstate. Even though we had a space in the back and it was cold so that we had our windows closed, the freeway was still a roar in the background during the night. During the day, it was not as much of a problem, but at night, it was bad. It was expensive, by our standard, even with the Good Sam discount. The tax brought the cost back up to around $40 per night. If you use the pool, pickle ball court, etc. then this may be OK. We do not use these facilities, so for us it was an expensive place to park. It is so neat, clean and tidy that it felt sterile. There is really no landscaping, just gravel and pavement. The hookups are about as inconvenient as possible; the electrical hookups are in the very back. The water hookup is close to the front and the tap is in a deep enclosure that is very difficult to reach and impossible to hook up to without kinking the water hose. So we would only stay here again if we had to stay for a few days to visit friends in the area. Your views may vary. We camped at De Anza RV Resort in a Motorhome.

This is our 2nd stay here. Very friendly and helpful owners. They "catered" our RV rally with very good food from their restaurant. As to the previous comment on the bathroom/shower facilities - they are remodeling that whole area in the main building. Always a pleasurable stay. And the pull-through site we had was spacious.

This seems to be a well managed park. The driveways are paved. Tthe sites are level gravel with a concrete pad and a picnic table. The power services are at the very back of the lot. The restrooms and showers are clean and neat. We like this park and will stay here again when we are in the area. We camped at De Anza RV Resort in a Motorhome.

Access from I-19 is straightforward, and there is plenty of room within the park for maneuvering. Although there is not a lot of landscaping, especially in the newer spaces, the park is very well maintained and the sites are generously sized. All utilities are good, except the Wi-Fi varies from outstanding to flakey. Their pet rules are reasonable. The noise from I-19 is present 24 hours/day, but in the back of the park where we were it was not bothersome, and it is wonderfully dark at night. Tucson and Nogales are within easy day trip distance, and the excellent arts and crafts stores of Tubac are even closer. There are few to none permanent residents. The office doesn't seem to reliably monitor online reservation requests, so a phone call is recommended. The price shown is for three days of Good Sam, one day without, and includes taxes. We have stayed here three times. We camped at De Anza RV Resort in a Motorhome.

We had a very friendly reception at the office and they gave us a back in spot. But we couldn’t use it as the electric plug was located in the back of the spot and our cord didn’t reach. We paid extra and got a pull through spot that worked. Nice level gravel sites with concrete pads and picnic tables. The washroom/showers combinations were very, very old. Clean, but really outdated and very minimal amount of them. Quaint old office/recreation building, but had obvious leaking from the ceiling in some places. Wi-Fi was free, but really slow. Not much to do here. We had to leave 2 nights early and couldn’t get a refund on the weekly rate we’d paid. Not our kind of place. We camped at De Anza RV Resort in a Motorhome.
