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 camped at De Anza RV Resort in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

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.

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. We camped at De Anza RV Resort in a Motorhome.

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.

Very nice park, wide paved roads, large, level gravel sites. Kept very clean. Friendly helpful staff. About 10 miles from shopping. We camped at De Anza RV Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

Nice park. Lots of room and more shade trees would make it a 10. Pleasant staff and good maintenance. Sites have concrete slabs and picnic table. Kinda pricey, but competitive for the area. We camped at De Anza RV Resort in a Motorhome.

My nightly rate was a rally rate. The sites are gravel with paves streets. There is a table at some sites and a small cement patio at all sites. Very few trees, so it is satellite friendly. You have a view of the mountains. They have a gate on the entrance that could be closed at night, but I never saw it closed. There were a lot of tall weeds around the perimeter of the park, but the sites were clean. They have a very strange utility setup here. The sewer is on the left where you would expect it to be. The electricity is way behind the rig and the water is on the right near the patio slab. Water pressure was fine, electricity was good too and the Wi-Fi was excellent. I would say the Wi-Fi was the best I have ever had in a RV park. It didn't slow down in the evenings when you expect it to be heavily used. The main reason that I didn't rate the park higher is that I called and made reservations and the manager sounded like she didn't think we needed them so my wife called the next day. We wanted to be beside some friends who were going to be there, too. When we arrived they did not have a site reserved for us and we ended up away from our friends. We would probably return if we are in the area again. We camped at De Anza RV Resort in a Motorhome.

Nice RV Park. Off season. Facilities dated but clean and well maintained. Did not use pool or clubhouse facilities. Sites level, graveled. Well groomed. Would probably stay there again, not a lot of RV parks in the area. We camped at De Anza RV Resort in a Travel Trailer.

Lots of amenities here. Very clean and well kept park. Fri/Sat nights dinner, Sat/Sun breakfast, live band Friday nights. Rate is based on one week stay. The reason I rated it an 8 is because the sites are just gravel...no plants to soften or provide privacy and sites are pretty close together. Park is quite aways from anything. Decent Wi-Fi.

We were a little disappointed in this park after all the good reviews we read. The biggest issue was the sites; the majority are back in and are not large. The pull throughs are nice, but they do not have many of them. I reserved a year out and asked for a pull through, but did not have one for me when I arrived. The clubhouse and activities are nice and have lots to do. The price is $575 a month plus your electricity, so about $675 a month, very high considering the small sites. Views are nice on the east side of park (mountains); however , old RV park on south side and commercial facility on north side detract from the beauty of the area. Bath rooms/showers were old, out dated. I have had far better RV sites for a lot less money. We camped at De Anza RV Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

This is a very nice park. The driveway is paved and wide enough for easy access to park. The sites are flat and gravel that is so well maintained that it might just as well be pavement. There are concrete pads for the picnic tables. The club house is large with an indoor pool, fitness area, and restaurant with good food. The staff is friendly and helpful. The wi-fi and cable both work very. We camped at De Anza RV Resort in a Motorhome.
