Just like the dozens of other fairly small RV parks in Apache Junction, this one has a mix of longer term residents and transients. The park is under new ownership and is being actively upgraded. The rate is a weekly rate. Owners and other residents are very friendly and the entire community is gated. Some of the sites (all back-in) are a bit tight because of a nearby tree or post, but most of the transient sites are fine. All are gravel surface, with paved roads. The pool and clubhouse are quite nice. Considering the price, this was a very good deal. We would definitely return. - wandrr

We returned to see the renovations. Park looks great, new gravel on sites. Sites are still tight. On the west wall, patio's have been angled to allow for easier access. All new bathrooms, showers,and amenities rooms. Still really friendy. - RDRV

Stayed at the Lost Dutchman, a mobile home park next door to Blue Star. Both are owned by Sun Communities and Blue Star is the RV Park. Blue Star is being renovated and have no bathrooms, showers, pool, or amenity building and only have some sites usable. They say it might be ready by January.
This review is for the services supplied at Lost Dutchman by Sun Communities.
Check-in was non existent. They knew we were to arrive Friday and no one was available. Office closed, no package containing information including access codes was given. They only offer a RV 50 amp plug, nice to know prior to arrival as a converter is required for 30 amp. They seem to know how to run a mobile home park but must step up the customer service for the RV Guests.
The bathrooms and showers were not cleaned and restocked daily. I mentioned to 3 staff about a dirty stall door and it was never cleaned.
We look forward to the new Blue Star amenities and remodeled Park. We hope they cater to the RV Guest with better customer service than Lost Dutchman. - RDRV

Smaller older Park. All back in spaces. Check in was laid back, picked from available sites. Most are returning seniors, coming to this park for many, many years. Important to know people are FRIENDLY! I would recommend this park for this reason. New owners have plans to renovate the smaller tighter sites, maybe angle to make back in easier. - RDRV

This is the second winter we have spent time at Bonita Vista. It is an older mobile home park with plenty of sites converted for use by RVs. The sites are huge, with lots of room for toads or slides. The managers/staff and residents are all very friendly and welcomed us to weekly events such as pot lucks, entertainment, pool etc. The park is on the far eastern edge of the Phoenix area, but close to Mesa and near Canyon and Saguaro lakes, lots of hiking trails and other things to do. The club house is spacious, with a library, computer room, TV area and nice showers. We enjoyed our stay here enough to come back for a second winter. - ultrastar28

This is an older park converting many sites to new park models and RV use. Very helpful and nice people in the office, Sites are large enough for most large rigs and not difficult to get into. Plenty of activity geared a little more to the older crowd. Very friendly residents, and helpful. Pet friendly and located close to all the shopping you could desire. Very clean pool and washrooms. Has a sand golf course adjacent. We would stay there again. - redhot60

Not a true RV-friendly park. Just an average geezer trailer park in Apache Junction. RV sites are scattered around, and you must be very careful about your hookups, and proximity to US 60 in the back, or Southern in the front. Some of the sewer caps are sideways, water can be on the patio (wrong side), electric is way back. So take a good look. Wi-Fi only works in the clubhouse. Many facilities in need of repair. Pool and spa look nice, tho concrete is cracked up. Only one usable indoor shower, ones by pool are not hot. "Computer Room" was worthless as was the "Fitness Room" (old machines not plugged in) . Monthly rate $550 is much better deal than $35 daily; not sure how we lasted 30 days here. Won't be back. - Annie's Song

Small, close sites. Not worth the price. Would not stay here again. - JBanner7
Jan 2012 - $30.00
Last resort stay, what brings rating down is un-friendliness of guests, if you are not 65+, rude people!, water very hard and bad taste. Sites are narrow with not much parking for personal vehicle, park car under neighbors slide. Nightly cost is OK for what you get, will I stay again? definitely NO. - my86gw

This is a no frills park which is what we like. We need good TV, cell phone reception and WiFi and we had all three. We hope to spend next winter here again. - karenf.

Nice clean decently spaced sites, great views, okay bathroom, decent price, close to town for all your needs. We strayed in the no hookup sites by mistake, didn't notice it when I made reservations. No hookups is fine for us as we have solar, what I didn't care for was the generators many others use but I guess that's my problem, just something to keep in mind. The showers could use some work, getting dated and not very clean, even if you are the first in after the volunteers get done. Overall I think if I had gotten a site around the campgrounds perimeter we would have liked it better, the generator noise was a turnoff for us. - padlin00

A great State Park with roomy sites, awesome Superstition mountain views, and lots of wildlife. Good, paved interior roads, and mostly level, paved sites. Plenty of trails, from easy to challenging. Lots to do in the Park and nearby. The only negatives: Not enough restrooms/showers; if you don't use the one in your RV you might have a lengthy walk. Only one dump station; two can dump at once but there can be a wait. Campgrounds were full the 2 weeks we were here - reserve well in advance to get a site. We would definitely stay here again. - FranM

Stayed one night to help a friend learn how to set up & use his new tt. (was mine) This is a very nice, scenic park, very well kept, mostly by workcamper/volunteers. . . the only problem we had was low voltage electrical service, which I had noticed previously. 108/109 volts into your rig is hard on a/c etc. Using an adapter 30 amp to 50 plug usually helps, but not this time. .. & the park was nearly empty ( it was 106 out). . In milder weather when a/c is not necessary it's a great place. - seahawk09

This is a very nice clean park.. Has lots of park models with RV's in between..Lots have an uphill slope to get in ... so if you hang low you are gonna scratch the bottom of the RV..Has great WiFi.. Laundry, showers, and bathrooms are very clean. Cable is 24 channels only, but its included in rate. Rate above is average for a 30 day stay. We stayed 1 month, monthly rate does not include electric.. The only negative I have is the dog policy.. If you have a dog you can only stay in the last 2 rows of the park & the dogs cannot walk any where else. It has a very small all gravel dog area outside the back gate...So this park is not very dog friendly..Mall is about 8 miles away.. Sites are gravel with concrete pad.. No picnic table on sites... - Yepwearedoingit

We stopped here to visit friends that were here already! It is a lovely area and weather was perfect. Sites were nice and clean. People were friendly. A much bigger park than we usually stay at. - Rvcastle

This is a clean, friendly, beautiful RV resort with practically all sites shaded. The people in the park are all very friendly. There are lots of park activities. We liked everything about this park except the Wi-Fi (which was VERY poor) and we were only a few sites away from the tower. The park management limits the bandwidth and the amount of usage for each person - and doesn't tell anyone what that usage limit is, so you could open up the weather and your mail and find you have reached your limit on any given day. We were not able to use Skype to talk with our kids or grand kids and we were often booted out of any other instant messaging software, so staying in touch without a phone is almost impossible. There is a computer room where you can connect your own laptop or use one of their computers, but personally I like to use my own laptop very early in the a.m. while my significant other is still sleeping and I am up. This also allows me to connect with family and friends back east. This park would have rated a 10 if the Wi-Fi was better and the only reason we would not return to this park or recommend it to others is because of the poor Wi-Fi. - Kemptvillekids

On the plus side, the park was clean. On the negative side, roads are very narrow as are the sites. Trees are planted right in the middle of many sites, giving another obstacle to maneuver around. We have a 40 foot motor home (no slides) and it was very difficult to get into and out of the site. The head maintenance man was wonderful in helping us out in this matter. However, overall, this is not an RV friendly park, the majority of the park is park models, older, and very close together. We were there two months and didn't find most occupants to be very friendly. The average age seemed to be in the late 70s to 80s. Some of the equipment in the fitness room was broken. The wood shop is very small. The park was fanatical about wearing a name badge, even if you walked or biked outside the park, you'd better have your name badge when you came back in. We had to leave early due to a family health emergency and the park management/owner was not willing to refund any of our advanced payment. We will not return there, nor would we recommend it to anyone with an RV over 30 feet. If you want to buy one of their park models, maybe it's for you. - orggardener

We stay there for 6 months every year. If you are not friendly, this park is not for you! It is so reasonable. There are so many activities if one isn't busy it's your own fault. The closeness of the units causes a community feel and a neighborhood of winter birds and small % of full time residents. - Barbara Smith

This RV resort is a clean, 55 and over only, but very old with about 500 sites, but only maybe a dozen for traveling RV's. Most of the park are permanent park models and very old trailers with add ons, porches, carports. Streets are narrow and units very close together.. We had a very hard time backing our fifth wheel due to the too narrow street. They do allow short term, but I would not recommend this, even for long term. There are dozens of other very nice, newer, modern parks to choose in the area. - Destinations

We had reserved a deluxe pull-thru with propane BBQ grill. We arrived at approximately 2:30 PM and we were escorted by an employee to our site. By the time we set up our fifth wheel, we discovered some electrical problems within the RV. We went to the office and asked about hiring reliable technical help with our problem. After receiving a name, we called the technician only to find out that he was too busy to respond to our problem within the next 3 days. That evening, we experienced significant heater issues in our RV during the unusual cold evening. We decided that we did not want to spend more chilly nights in the fifth wheel without any opportunity to hire technical help, so we went to the front desk to ask the clerk if we could get a partial refund for the 3 nights we had paid or give us 2 nights at a later date in February. The clerk told me to give her specific alternate dates before we checked out of the park. When my wife returned to the office, the clerk told her that they could not give her other dates. Therefore, we lost two nights of lodging after only using one. We were upset with the clerk's answer because we had no other choices except to stay there for two more nights with out heat in our RV. We believe KOA's should consider every case on its own merit. - broncobillyaz

This is a nice campground. Easy to find and well located to shopping. Staff was friendly and helpful. Interior roads are easy to navigate. Sites are level, gravel, wide and long. Utilities are properly located and all full hookups worked. Cell reception was great, but WIFI was terrible. Restrooms, showers and laundry were very clean and all of the washers and dryers worked.
This campground is dog friendly. Not a lot of grass, but plenty of good dog walking space and a nice dog run. Not a lot of extra activities. This is a well kept campground good for shorter stays. - Hurqleez

Stayed one night 2016-10-01. Arrived about 1900, late arrival. Package was at night desk. Gravel site was plenty long and level. We did not unhitch for the nite. Nice park for taking walks. Staff on telephone was friendly and professional. Like the location on the east side of Mesa, when continuing along US 62. Fry's grocery store and other stors about 1 mile NW. - GKLott

This is our 7th year and the turmoil continues. We love the park and the residents that have been here for years. I can't say the same for management. It seems like the owner(s) keep getting rid of the activity directors. We are now on our 5th activity director in 7 years. The latest one had been the manager of the resort, but was stepping down to just do activities. As for the cooks, again we keep on getting new ones (the latest one just left along with the activity director). This will be our last season here due to the turmoil. Now I know whey so many of the previous residents have purchased homes in the area. - Winnebago Wanderer

Stayed 5 nights with the hope to stay for the winter season. Talk about a park in turmoil, this it. Management fired all the regular office workers except the one causing all the problems. New office manager has no clue, cook was fired last year, and the one who was supposed to come back isn't.
No dances. No dinners except pot luck. We had heard good things about this park from past residents so we wanted to try AZ this winter. Save your money. Apache Junction & Mesa have plenty parks to choose from. - joeseph

Poor management only cares about the money. Value very bad for the money. Absolutely no vegetation. Rolls Royce payment for a Fiat. Last resort Resort. If you are this hard up you had better quit!! Stayed here in a Motorhome Tag axel Coach so I did not use their facilities. Place is kept clean and the club house pool area looks nice. Several pet areas are available and most sites at least one car can be parked. Streets are in well kept condition and the areas are somewhat well lit at night. I do not know about security at night but I did not stay up late to check it out. In sort of a run down area of town. Watch out for bike riders scouting for items not locked down. - Steve Holtel

This is a clean 55+ park with traffic noise, though less at night. Sites are closely-spaced, unshaded, non-level gravel with utilities at the back. Some sites have a concrete pad. Voltage is good. Roads are wide asphalt in excellent condition. Sites 88-93 and 100-106 are slightly farther from the road.
On arrival I found the polarity was reversed (hot and neutral reversed) at my site. This was quickly fixed once I was able to convince them it was a problem. The sockets face straight down and are low to the ground, making it awkward to plug in and even more awkward to use a tester. Nevertheless, I know at least one other site has reversed polarity, so I recommend testing before plugging in.
Free WiFi is available in the pool area. It's fairly weak. I measured 270.0 kB/s down. There's also paid Viasat WiFi at the sites. It's strong. I didn't buy service. Verizon LTE works well.
There is one clean, private, non-accessible shower per gender.

Daily rate based on monthly stay, electricity is an extra charge based on meter-readings. These 20 camping sides are basically added to a large mobile home park and campers can use all park facilities, including very nice pool, hot tub, showers, recreation rooms, etc. Very active 55+ community with bingo, pot-luck and dancing specials. The camp-sides are just long enough to fit a 42Ft RV with 4 slide-outs. Your extra car fits tightly next to the RV but then there is no more space left over to enjoy. Some campers put their car on the gravel main road and stay alert for moving it when new RV's come in or go out. The free Wi-Fi worked very well in the AC cooled entertainment rooms. As an extra bonus they organize (seasonal) tours to pick oranges and grapefruits which you can keep for free. We very much enjoyed our stay and will come back again. - Ockie

This is a clean park. There's traffic noise during the day. At night it's much quieter, but there's still some noise. Sites are wide, near-level dirt; some have a concrete pad. There are a few high palm trees but no shade. The 30 amp outlet at my site wouldn't fit my cable, so I needed to use a 50 amp to 30 amp adapter. Roads are wide asphalt in good condition, but many vehicles parked partly on the roads reduce the effective width. Staff are friendly and helpful. WiFi is good in the clubhouse and at a few sites very close to the clubhouse. Verizon data service works very well. Laundry: 2 top-loaders ($1.25), 1 front-loader ($1.25), 5 dryers ($1 for 45 minutes); there's also a clothesline. Credit cards are not accepted. - wjzcbn
