There may be sites with sewer water and electric available intermittently, only if a camp host has moved out. Otherwise plan on dry camping, i.e. fill up your water tank, have a generator and/or solar panels and plan on driving out of the park to Flying J or another local RV park to dump tanks. I camped near the rodeo arena in the lower parking lot. The road is good asphalt all the way to the parking lot which is clean pea gravel that is groomed (chain raked) regularly by the camp hosts. It rained steady the first day and half I was there and the lot drained very well, no mud or standing water puddles. There are lots of trash receptacles in the lot and a port a potti for use by campers and day use folks at the trail head. This is a popular site for folks hauling their horses in a trailer, so parking along the sides of the large lot makes it easier for them to manoever in/out. There is no potable water for people, but there is a horse watering trough with a spigot near the trees at the trail headAccess to Phoenix, Goodyear, etc. is quick and it is very quiet at night...other than coyotes singing. Keep small dogs/cats on a leash and near you at all times. Camp hosts report seeing coyotes meandering through the lot in the day time, not fearful of people. I had to do minimal leveling on wedge levelers. The main reason I picked this park was proximity to the beautiful golf course within the park. There are no defined sites, just first come first parked. There is no shade in the lot, so camping here without power in hot season would be iffy. - GoldSeeker

We stayed here for a quiet week and there were no horse events in the arena nearby. We did not see any showers or bathrooms. Our site did not have sewer but our friends did. We did not see a dump site. The view is spectacular and there are hiking trails. - rolling homeless

We had covered parking in the employee area by reserving 3 months earlier. This is an ideal location for the West Valley. Dog walks are pleasant with available trails close by. We were within minutes of the Rally this year so were able to visit. It's very close to our daughter so another great selling point. We'll go back again. - Arizona Traveler

This is a Snowbird park, which was fortunately half empty - lots of Mobile homes and permanent residents. We were in a smaller "pull through" section, sites were level but very close together - not even 10 feet between campers. Small concrete pad at back of site, no picnic tables and with a tiny wannabe tree, so no shade from the high Arizona temps! Location was very close to all major shops and services but a long way from downtown Phoenix. - Retired Wanderers

Excellent short term park, with nice gravel sites. I did notice long term sites were all dirt, and no picnic tables at any sites in the park. This is only complaint I have, otherwise great park. - LindaC

I don't recommend this park if you want to be parked in one site for your whole visit. They think nothing of moving you from site to site saying someone else is coming when no one does. Very poor management and office staff has no idea about running a park. - Tina 69

Very nice and large park. Sites were plenty big enough. There were quite a few sites that were seasonal and had some residents that have been there awhile, however, there were no "trashy"rigs. The park has lots of mature orange trees that provide shade. The staff was friendly and helpful. Would stay there again if in the area. - Possumvalleybrndr

As we walked in the woman at the desk chose that moment to pick up a piece of mail and write on it, ignoring us. After a few moments of standing there she acknowledged us. She seemed bored and tired. I questioned the total amount charged, to which she said, "Taxes." So once we were settled, I sat down and did the math. We had been over-charged $40. I went back to the office to discuss this. She admitted she'd charged us an extra night; she had counted our departure date, though we had clearly stated "3 nights." She called her manager over and there was some unhappy discussion between them. He never spoke to me, never said, "Sorry," nothing. She then refunded the amount and was gracious about it; but there also was never an apology from her. Later we found we could not access the pool; went to the office and were given a key (no word about that on check-in). So, management issues overall! That said, this is quite a nice park. Level, concrete sites with picnic tables and patio. The roads in the park are tight, but the sites are spacious enough, and there are orange trees with fruit that can be picked. The pool is very nice. The park is quiet and peaceful...except for the jets from the nearby air force base! During the day, that intermittent noise really gets annoying. This is a gated park, so appreciate that extra security. At night the globe lights are not overly bright, appreciate that as well. - wandering2

Nice well maintained park. A lot of amenities. Spaces were not close together. All concrete pads. The pool and other amenities closed too early at 8. Would like to see them stay open longer. Pet areas were all gravel and far apart. Need more grass pet areas to walk the dogs. Security gate access was a nice plus. Air Force base next door. A lot of noise when jets depart. I'd stay here again. - KMK

The site was level with the hook ups toward the rear. We had an escort to the site and help with parking. Everything was very clean. The wifi worked fine at the site. we did hear that they were having issues with the cable, but we did not use it. - Al and Anne-Marie

This is a beautiful resort probably one of the nicest we have ever stayed at clean well landscaped beautiful pool sites are reasonably large but the above price is based on a monthly stay and is plus utilities and does not include internet which is available for approx 25 to 35 per month but you have to sign up for a recurring billing which was too much of a hassle even small campgrounds provide internet garbage was picked up twice a week which could be an issue the washrooms and pool are in the center of the park which is huge so it can be a long walk although the pool area is large so is the park the first 2wks we were there the park was full and the pool too crowded to use the last 2 was it was empty pool was lovely Then there are the jets this by itself is reason to look elsewhere we would not return. - janel323

We came here thinking this was a premium park judging by the price. No dumpsters, and they keep replying that they're "working on it", which is not true. The comments on the twice-weekly garbage pickups have been going on for years, so management is either incompetent or dishonest. Length rules for RV's are only a guideline...not enforced for some people. The jet noise can't be overemphasized- it's like sleeping next door to an Indy track! People that work here are mostly workcampers and not really interested. Park managers stay in their office. For the price this park should be managed much better. The RV sites are a tax break for the owners, and they are really only interested in selling horrifically overpriced manufactured homes. Mens showers need to be refitted, they're showing their age. RV sites are a good size but not anything special. The sites are gravel with concrete patios. No WiFi unless you pay extra and the desk people tell you it's not very good. The alleged "premium" sites have a 4 × 6 piece of fake grass in front and a concrete picnic table....lol. The golf course restaurant is ok. Food is typical and the service uneven. With all the focus on selling you a mobile home there, this park rates a 2 star. We won't be returning. - Michael and Leah

The park is well located near shopping and restaurants. Paved roads were smooth and RV site was level and clean. We enjoyed the big resort pool. There are mostly older retired folks and many mobiles and park models, with a few short term RV spots here and there. The view out your window will be a mobile home. We felt safe and secure in this park. - Kason rolling

If you have pets, forget this park: There is no designated pet area. The front gate is a bit tight if you are pulling a long trailer. The majority of this park is for 55+ residents who reside in trailers, very few RV spaces and some of them are very tight. Most of the residents are not pet friendly and your dog will need to potty on the street or on your lot; come to think of it, most of the residents are not friendly - period. The Park is gated, which is a plus. The park has a few planned activities for their guests, but we only attended the occasional Saturday donuts social. Reasonable rates for an extended stay, we spent three months in this park. - Dave Scott

A basic rv Park with decent facilities, friendly people here, sites are decent. Nothing fancy but showers are clean and water, electric (we only need 30 amp) and sewer. A nice pet area with grass. Not a resort but all we wanted was a reasonable place to stay for 3 weeks. No pet size requirements. No minimum trailer sizes as so many other parks in the area have on close to plenty of restaurants, grocery stores etc. And an RV sales and repair shop right next door that had a part I needed and refills propane so that is very convenient. - Bob_W

This campground suited our basic needs while in Phoenix. It is not a resort, but convenient to many local attractions. They say they have 50 AMP, but we couldn't find one empty site that had it. We stayed in in early Spring, so AC wasn't vital. If we needed 50 AMP, we would find another place. The main downside was the check-in. The hotel guests get priority, so be prepared to wait a while if you check in at a busy time. - travelSupremely

The park is behind a Days Inn which apparently took over a Ramada Inn. The park is as described in other reviews: older and in need of some work, nothing fancy. But, that being said, the park was clean, and I only saw one permanent site that should have been removed. There are few 50 amp sites, and those are really suggested for the Arizona area. We were here for spring training and to visit family so we found the park to be acceptable and safe. We will certainly return. - nmunozjr

We really enjoyed our stay here. It's quiet and has beautiful views both day and night. We loved to ride our mountain bikes on the trails through the saguaro, including the competition tracks. The sites are spread out. It is a bit of a long, slow drive from the campground to the edge of town, but that's what makes it quiet, right? We had an extremely sketchy Verizon data signal, even with our cradle booster. - Brad & Angela

Fantastic campground, with very large sites. Tired of being squished next to your neighbors? Then camp here! There are a few drawbacks: No sewer hookups (dump station), and only one shower in bath house. But this is a minor "complaint" as the sites are very clean, quiet, incredible views, and extremely spacious. Yes, they do have a locked gate at night, and shopping/groceries are far away (2-30) minutes, but this park is well worth a stay in Winter & Spring. Excellent cell reception and plenty of over the air TV channels as well. - Phoenix Rover

We stayed here for a few days while visiting friends. It is a lovely setting and easy back in. Nice area around the fire pit. We had 2 really big complaints: 1) the is only one shower(m&f) for all of the campground. There is no sewer hook-up so if you are there for more than a couple of days, it's a hardship. Plus the push bottom shower only stayed for abou 30secs. 2) There is a gate for after hours which is nice however it is an awful set-up. It's a combination lock with dial. There is no light on it & your auto lights don't help. Plus it right next to a cattle grate making walking scary. They need to have a lift arm gate. I can't say the camp hosts were very friendly--no one was. But the views are amazing and the stars are amazing at night plus great sunrises. - Afhertzog_54

Passport America rate was a couple bucks higher than advertised on PA site. Very convenient place to stay to visit Phoenix. A bit of a drive, but way better than driving through Phoenix with your RV. Paved roads, gravel, dirt sites but very nice. Not busy when we were there, would be close to your neighbor if they were full. No trees/shade, big rig access is great. As long as they take PA I will stay again (max 3 nights at PA rate then $5 per day more). - Coley

Clean all around, friendly and well organized. Lots of sites lined up like most large parks. Shopping nearby and away from all the noise. Nice park but could be dusty whenever the wind blows. We found sand every where an opening existed. - dalenoel

This is a big park and like others have said they have a lot of rules. They went over the "rules" twice once when we checked in and then when they took us to our site. Over kill but it is their park and can run it the way they wish. The sites are long enough that we did not have to disconnect, but very narrow. Our site was a buddy site which means front doors open to each other they attempt to minimize the effect by having both coaches go as far forward as possible. It was okay for one night. Asphalt drive with dirt pad space. Most of the park is full timers this time of year. The park is jammed, has no color with no charm at all. The only reason we would stay again is family is close and you can go down 85 and avoid Phoenix. - sjones

Unfortunately we've heard this park has been closed and purchased by the city. They have other plans for the property. Planes, trains, and automobiles! Noise was definitely noticeable. All are basically next door. We enjoyed our stay and the park was very convenient for Mariner and Padres games. - SandyBBB

We've found it! An OASIS in the desert! Donorma RV Park is absolutely a gem. We are so lucky to have found this park. It is not like the sterile parks where they have 80' palm trees that offer no shade, and everyone is stacked up against the neighbors like sardines. The lots come in a variety of sizes to fit most RV's.
Donorma has trees that offer shade, grass, the green mowable variety, a smorgasbord of cacti to check out, humming birds, and bunch of bunnies running around. The management staff (family) are very friendly and helpful. Pretty much everyone was involved in getting us in our space and set up correctly.
We found Donorma while looking for a RV park in the area using Google Maps. All the trees we saw are what drew us to it. We also noticed that it had a pool. Sadly, the pool has now been filled in, and more gravel seems to be arriving daily.
What really made this park stand out from the other parks was the fact that it wasn't a sterile gravel lot, or slabs of concrete and asphalt like all the others we looked at. These RV parks do nothing but radiate heat late into the night which everyone tries to avoid any time of day when you're in the desert.
Anyone that has ever spent any part of the summer season in an RV in the desert looks forward to shade, and a pool, to get away from the endless sun, and heat. We hope the owners realize what a unique gem they have here.
Pro's - Friendly management, trees, green, lots of shade, quiet, location, very clean bathrooms, onsite propane, washers/dryers, pets allowed.
Con's - No pool now, more gravel than needed. - Stone n Pebbles

We stayed at Donorma RV Park for the Winter of 2016, November thru April. This park is such a great place to stay! We found the managers to be very kind and helpful. They work hard to keep up the park and are always doing landscaping or taking care of the grounds in one way or another. It is a family-managed park and so the park has a family feel to it. There are showers and bathrooms as well as 4 washers and dryers for the visiting rver's to use. There are chickens and rabbits and numerous birds if you like animals. There are pets allowed as well. It has a number of pull thru sites and accommodates rv's up to 40'. This is an oasis in the desert as the landscaping uses fruit and hardwood trees as well as many varieties of flowering plants and bushes. It is a very nice park with very nice people managing. - KarenFay
