The park is kept very clean with trash cans all around emptied regularly. Laundry worked well and as it is an off season was not busy. Location was good to I-60 and access to all of the Phoenix area. Some traffic noise but not a problem. Our site was level with good access to all utilities. Over the air TV was very good. We camped at Mesa / Apache Junction KOA in a Travel Trailer.

Tips for other Campers:

Shopping was very close with all varieties. Tourist activities like the Ghost Town were also available if that is what you wanted. The disc golf courses I played in the area were good for desert courses.

Park is clean and attractive. It has quite a few long-term/permanent campers who must think it's okay. But for us there are a few things which make it unsatisfactory. Wi-fi is awful, totally inadequate for the rate paid . Most spaces have zero shade. Pull-throughs are "face-to-face" meaning your door is facing your neighbor's door. This would be very unpleasant with a gregarious neighbor who likes to be outside all the time with his radio playing and has lots of company. (Fortunately this neighbor was on our back side. His behavior was not the park's fault, but the face-to-face site arrangement makes this something you can't get away from.) The dog walk is a 10x10 patch of dirt and gravel enclosed in a chain link fence with a trash can and scooper. No place to walk a dog in the whole park that isn't gravel and either in the road or someone's space. With all the RV parks in the area, we wouldn't stay in this one again. We camped at Mesa / Apache Junction KOA in a Fifth Wheel.

As so often with KOA the campsite needs refurbishment. Our site was spacious but not level due to lack of maintenance of raking the gravel etc. Only one restroom/shower block near the office for a very large site. Biggest complaints are the very poor wifi, no cable, very few TV channels available on antenna and no policing of the pet policy. Overpriced for these reasons. We camped at Mesa / Apache Junction KOA in a Fifth Wheel.

Tips for other Campers:

Close to shops and good choice of supermarkets. Visit Roosevelt Lake and The Salt River Basin.

Work campers keep this park nice and clean. There is a pool and hot tub but the pool is COLD. When we reserved and paid we were assured of good wifi at our site, however this was misrepresented. there is almost no wifi service. When inquired at the office and even hinted at the status of our future time here and the refund policy I was met with a totally different attitude than at checkin. RVing is supposed to be fun, we would never stay here again. I find this alarming for a national chain service that has always been great to us in the past.

The park is ok; it has pull through and back in's. Some sites are side by side. Space varies between the sites, but generally ok width short and long sites. The park has a policy of no "pigtails" can be used for switching from 30 to 50 or 50 to 30 AMP. This limits the availability of sites. We had asked for a pull through and paid for one, but had to take a back-in. Had we not had a commitment close by we would have left. We are not happy at all about this type of treatment. One wonders if all KOA's are like this. We camped at Mesa / Apache Junction KOA in a Fifth Wheel.

While this park is kind of dog friendly, upon check-in you be told if you dog barks you will be asked to leave, if you have one of their vicious breeds you will be told to take them to a kennel otherwise don't stay. It is basically a desert with no grass, very small gravel hard on a dogs paws, would not stay there again. We camped at Mesa / Apache Junction KOA in a Motorhome.

This is a gem of a KOA! Nice site size and very, very friendly staff. We had a beautiful view of Superstition Mountain. Nice and clean campground. My only complaint is that the WiFi was less than good. We would stay here again. We camped at Mesa / Apache Junction KOA in a Motorhome.

We stayed here for two nights for a quick trip to check out the Superstition Mountains. All of the employees were very friendly and helpful. Our spot had our curbside facing southwest and even in our mild winters, the full sun was brutal. Without issue they quickly moved us to a different spot when we asked. The park is all gravel but it is clean and fairly level. If you can, get to the back of the park to avoid some of the road noise. The dog run is somewhat comical but not a big deal as they don't hassle you if your dog goes elsewhere as long as you clean up. Regarding cleanliness, employees, etc. this place is great. The only reason I didn't rate it higher is simply because it isn't a luxury park. That said, it is great for a KOA and a clean place to stay in the area. We would stay here again. We camped at Mesa / Apache Junction KOA in a Motorhome.

Best KOA I have ever seen. Nice wide spots and roads. Very friendly and helpful staff. Pool and spa were very clean. My only complaint is the little, tiny dog run, which could be easily expanded. Location is great close to freeway, but not so close to hear it. Would definitely stay here again. Wish the rest of the KOAs were like this. We camped at Mesa / Apache Junction KOA in a Motorhome.

OK park, desert setting all gravel and sand. Not good for dogs paws but livable. Electric good, Water pressure very poor had to turn on the water pump to take a shower. Work campers run the place and most of them were very nice, owner lives on the property but has very little interest in the guest . We camped at Mesa / Apache Junction KOA in a Motorhome.

We came here for one night as we wanted to visit some of the attractions near Phoenix. The park is beautiful with cactus and small trees, well kept by a very friendly couple, facilities work well. Not too much shade, but they do what is possible around here. No shop available. 35 minutes to Rawhide, a typical family place in the old Western style - great for a Swiss family. We camped at Mesa / Apache Junction KOA in a Motorhome.

Very friendly staff. Gravel and dirt all around but what you would expect for a desert setting. Sites are not level at the front of the park and we had to get moved because front wheels were off the ground and looking at some in the back lots of boards under the rigs. All that said it is one of the few with pull throughs so we will probably come back. We camped at Mesa / Apache Junction KOA in a Motorhome.

This was my second stay here. I like the park because it is one of the few area campgrounds that are not age restricted and it is convenient to the Phoenix area highway system. It seems the vast majority of Phoenix and Mesa area parks cater to snowbirders and are 55+. The park is nothing special, just your basic gravel parking lot with a sprinkling of shade trees and small plots of desert plants between sites. It backs up against the intersection of two relatively high-traffic roads, so there is some constant low-level background traffic noise. It wasn't loud enough to bother me. The hosts were friendly and helpful in pointing out area attractions. The Wi-Fi worked with no problems. I would have no problem with staying here again. We camped at Mesa / Apache Junction KOA in a Fifth Wheel.

Rate is a modified weekly rate. Roads are double wide and gravel. Easy in and out for pull-through site. Water, power and sewer service were good. Site reasonable level. Wi-Fi bandwidth not strong and best to wait until after 10 p.m. for good operation, otherwise it is painfully slow at best. Aerial TV channels were okay and view of Superstition Mountain was vista from our location. Did not use pool or spa but seemed in good condition. Will stay again when next in area.

This is a typical KOA, kind of cozy. We had a level site, facilities worked fine. We were escorted to site. The Wi-Fi is painfully slow, but Virgin Mobile Mifi worked well. It is a quiet park, staff were very friendly and helpful. Be aware owners do not allow electrical adapters (staff don't know why, neither do I). We would stay here again.
