We have stayed here several times over the years. It is usually our last stop for overnight (or couple of nights) when coming home to Tucson area from this direction. Mainly we stop as they have a great laundry and we like to get that done before home. Pros are that it is a very clean park and the laundry and a good dog park. But the cons include it is dusty gravel parking lot with no shade trees. They no longer take Good Sam - that is a fact. There is no TV. And there is only one place to dump trash which is up by the office and that can be a long way away. We would stay there again because of the proximity for us to meet our purpose. - AZSwede

We showed up after hours but were still greeted by a friendly staffer. We almost bolted because of the smell of a nearby livestock facility. But we were tired, it was hot and we needed the 30 amp hookup, and there aren't any nearby alternatives. The smell was gone the next morning; wind probably shifted. The smell is a shame because this place is spotless! The restrooms and showers were immaculate. We didn't use the pool or the laundry, but everything looked brand new. All the hookups were in excellent condition too. They offer discounts for AAA and Good Sam, but not AARP. Great place for an overnight or so, but that smell would probably discourage me from staying any longer. - SLOman

Be aware this place no longer takes Good Sam discount.
No cable TV, pool was being worked on, so we could not use.
101 out and no pool. This basically a dusty parking lot with no amenities. No shade. Price not worth the value. We won't be back. They should of at least gave us a discount because the pool was closed. Instead they told us to head down the road if we wanted a pool. - tookie

We stayed for 2 weeks. This is our 2nd extended stay, and we'll be back!
They do have a $3 per day electric charge, but you really wouldn't want to be without air in August! This is a perfect park if you are a Nascar fan, but it's great family park with fantastic pool equipped with handicap lift, a putting green and tennis court. The showers are clean and private individual rooms. Not to mention the laundry is excellent and the little gift shop is great. Plus Wi-Fi . - Jim and Me

This is our usual winter location. Even with all the road construction, easy access from the interstate. Sites are asphalt and the park roads are new asphalt which is nice. There are citrus trees throughout the park. A number of sites have a good line of sight for satellite dishes. We've heard the park has sold so we shall see this winter how that goes. - Bob & Jo

We stayed for 2 months to work at Spring Training. Very welcoming staff and friendly residents. Park has many trees and citrus fruit to pick as you like. Very warm pool and great hot tub. They have activities every day, but no pressure to join in. Good value in the laundry room, and I never had to wait for machines. Lots of motorcycles in the park, which my husband loved as he went on many rides to learn the areaWe plan to come back for the winter next year! - Carl and Brenda

We had a confirmed reservation arriving on a Saturday afternoon. Office building open but everything inside locked up and no registration packet waiting for us. We pulled in and took a spot. This place was deserted! Definitely out of season - this park is primarily park models with two huge parking lots for RVs. No Trees. Gorgeous Mountain views. Good utilities. Landscaping is young therefore small. Appears a lot of landscaping has died. Wondering if the park is in financial difficulties? Park is on far West side of town. Easy freeway access with no freeway noise. I do not think we will return to this park. Phoenix has lots of alternatives. - JanneC

Normally we stay at the Destiny resort next door, but thought we would give this place a try. It's ok for the night or two, but it lacks personality. All flat and rock and concrete and asphalt. Not much in the way of trees. Wi-fi costs extra. The spots are plenty big enough for our 38' rig plus full sized pickup. Very clean. It has a 4 hole golf "course" (par 3) that was closed during our stay. Like I said - ok, but I think we'll go back to Destiny next time. - Tiny Beast

Stayed at Cotton Lane for 2 nights in our 5th wheel. We had previously made a reservation. Staying at this park (mid-Sep) was a surreal experience!
We arrived early Saturday afternoon. Stopped to check in at the office. The door to the office lobby was unlocked but the registration window counter had the blinds shut. We called the park's number several times. Calls were directed to a brief voice message saying "Welcome - the office is closed". Not a particularly useful message! No information was posted or provided for arriving RVers. No emergency contact numbers were posted. We talked about what to do, and considered going to another park. We finally decided to stay. We had our choice of sites, as we were the only ones in the entire pull through section. Never saw a soul for the 2 nights and 1 day we were there. Really strange.
Very long sites (abt 100'), but VERY narrow sites. All the pull through sites barely allowed an RV to squeeze between the service pedestal on the left and the small paved patio on the right. With a bit of careful positioning, I was able to open the left slides. The pedestal was between two of our slides, but only cleared the side of the rig by 18"! The right side wheels of the rig were only several inches clear of the small concrete patio. Adjacent site sewer connection was right next to our steps - ugh!
On Monday morning, we finally received a telephone call back from the park at 11:00am, when we were on the road. No apologies, no concerns, or explanations provided. Basically, they were just returning our calls and wanted to know what we needed. We said that we had been in the park for 2 nights now, could not find any staff, had left, and would like to pay them for our site. No explanations, apologies or concerns expressed on their part.
Most definitely not a "resort".
We are full-timers and have stayed in a 100+ different RV parks throughout the US and Canada. This ranks as one of the worst. Definitely would not stay here again. - fredcrowley

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

It was a bit difficult to find the campsites in this park. Follow the signs for the Arena and you'll get there. The park also offers primitive camping for $10.00 per night. I saw what appeared to be these sites near the day use park and none looked capable of handling even a pop-up camper. There are seven total sites with full hook-ups, one occupied by the campground host. These are gravel, perpendicular back-ins and a bit tough to get in. But once in you'll find a beautiful smooth concrete patio with picnic tables and a great view. Despite what is noted in earlier reviews, each of these sites has 20, 30 and 50amp electric service, water and sewer. The sites are adjacent to a rodeo arena and the host said he could hook up "one or two" units at the arena with 20amp service and water. I examined this and you would need very long utility cords and hoses and the sites would be unlevel. There are no restrooms at the campground but while I was there the arena restrooms were open and clean. No showers. The host said that the hook-up sites fill up with park volunteers for the winter season from October until around May. I arrived to find only two sites available. Also note that the park is very close to Phoenix International Raceway. - SteveSox

This is a regional park campground with great desert mountain hiking trails and nearby horseback riding. Truly a camping place, and no seasonal RVers. Huge campsites with picnic tables and fire rings in a nicely cleared personal area. (Rattlesnakes and scorpions seem to stay beyond the rock rimmed campsites. We avoided walking paths to the bath house after dark as rattlers like to wrap themselves around the warm rocks that line the paths.) Amazing views of the White Tank Mountains and overlooking the Valley of the Sun. Easy to get to stores, shops and boutiques in Surprise. Easy access to Goodyear for Spring training games. Sites with sewers may be available if Host sites are not taken, but you'll have to ask, and they add $10 per night. Showers had plenty of space and privacy and were very clean. Campsite water pressure was low but adequate (especially since we showered at the bath house and did not use our washer). Easy in/out at dump station. No Wifi or cable TV, but AT&T cell signal was adequate. Dozens of local antenna channels rcvd from Phoenix, and no problem with satellitte reception on our DISH. No trouble maneuvering or backing in our 40' fifth wheel. Originally we stayed for ten days and returned a few weeks later for another five days. Loved every minute in this quiet, desert retreat. - OH2SD

Wonderful campsite! Natural desert setting with variety of trees, cactus, shrubs. Large sites, beautiful sunsets and sunrises. Gates close every evening. Water and electric. Only one shower stall but never had to wait. - NanciRV

Very quiet. Always seems to have spaces. Good hiking. Lovely view from the mountain overlooking Surprise AZ. At night that view is all lit up with street lights, but no noise. Will return. - Johnco

I specifically wanted to stay at this place to play golf. I called for a reservation and asked if I would be able to play (as an overnight guest). I was told yes. I made the reservation for the next week. I arrived and learned that the golf course had been closed for some time, and was not scheduled to open for another month. I also learned that most of the resort's other amenities were similarly closed for the season. Had I known this in advance, I never would have stayed here. It's an inconvenient location, far from anything interesting in the area, and you have to listen to jets from the Air Force Base periodically. While they are not flying full time, when they do go by, its quite jarring. They fly at night as well. With that aside, the resort itself is beautiful, with the exception of the overnight spots. They are bare and ugly, and a long walk from the pool and laundry room. You really need a golf cart to get around because of the size of the resort. Verizon signal was a little weak, but the wifi was good. Access to overnight sites was easy, as was navigating through the park. Customer service was all over the map, ranging from superb (guy who parked me) to average (most of front office staff) to just plain rude (lady who checked me in). One very inconvenient aspect of this place - not a garbage can or dumpster to be found anywhere. There is curbside trash pickup two days a week, and that is it. The instructions are to have your trash out before 7 am, and then they tell you that if you put it out at night and an animal gets into it, you are responsible for the cleanup. Also, all utilities are at the back of the site, and you might need extension cords. I will not return to this place. - KAP99

A beautiful RV and residential resort on its own 18-hole golf course. Very first-class in service and overall presentation. A very active location during the "Snowbird" season. A bit barren and forlorn during our stay. - SeenAll50

We stayed in this park last year for 6 months, Oct 2015 to end of March 2016, never again. Seems they are only interested in getting your money.
They do not return deposit if you have to cancel, give you 2 yr credit. You need 2 deposits one for fall special and one for remainder of stay. Laundry room very dirty. If you attend any events you are not allowed to byob but have to buy from them. Sending a fax from office, to USA 2.00, to Canada 4.00. Using mailbox etc, costs 1.38 to Canada. If you book in for a few months and decide to leave early they change your rates to weekly or daily so you have to pay more. Sites are big , pickle ball is good, well not at night as they have no lights. - jimdl

A small campground that is a little tight to navigate. They don't have a minimum trailer length or maximum age to camp like most other places around here have. - Artlamah

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

Older park-no dog run. If you like the sound of trains in the middle of the night-multiple times, this is your place. Significant noises generated by military aircraft, the sirens from ambulances and the trains. Would not stay here again. Somewhat unprofessional. The park inside is quiet its all the exterior noises that are bothersome. No cable and if you want WiFi you have to purchase it independently. - Tiptop1

This place is OK as a overnight but not longer due to an intermittent stench from a huge commercial chicken egg production facility located about 1/2 mile away. The smell will chase you inside your RV.
Full hookup lots, nearby fuel stations with diesel, easy access from I-10, near post office. Nearest shopping is Buckeye (about 20 minutes away) that has a Fry's and Wally World. - Pawbear

Staff is very friendly & helpful. I didn't reserve and got a site right away in mid December. But be aware, later in the afternoon and weekends the office is closed and there is no way to get in contact with somebody. The location is way out in the desert and there is pretty much nothing around. If you are 4-wheeling, this is a good spot. It's about 50 miles to Phoenix or 30 to Buckeye for shopping. Noise from the Interstate is very muffled and far away. The roads are paved and the setup is nice. There are some trees and palm trees but no green spaces.
Longtimers and daily guests are in different locations. However I haven't seen any RV's in disrepair.
The gravel sites are large enough for big rigs¸ hookups, with water, power, sewer, cable TV were working fine, we were able to pick up the WiFi signal from the computer room, but it was very slow, so I ordered the external solution, which wasn't better at all!
As the park has grown over time, the restrooms, the laundry and the pool might be far away, depending where you are parked. Sometimes, depending on the wind, you can get a bad smell from a nearby chicken farm. There is a pool, a woodworking shop, a computer room and a rec. hall. All is in good repair but shows the age a little bit. We would come back for a shorter term. - CamperAndy

Our 3rd annual stay here on the way east. No negatives with the exception of an intermittent unpleasant odor from the newly built chicken farm. Can really be a problem when the wind is blowing the wrong way. Otherwise the place is great. - terrytckl

They do not have "true 50 amp" service. The breaker is old and kept losing a "leg". People in the motorhome next to us had their inverter fried because of it. Park is old and has mostly park models. The true RV section is in the back and the sites are gravel with a small patio pad. WiFi was unusable. - Enterprise Adventurer
Apr 2016 - $32.00
We stayed here under Passport America. The regular price seemed a bit high though. Most of the sites have park models and are for sale or owned. The sites for RV's were very nice. The dog park is one of the best we have ever seen. We would definitely stay here again. - anglebg

Clean showers & restrooms but quite a way from where we were parked. A lot of great activities & amenities. I liked the entertainment at the tiki bar and we used the whirlpool quite a bit. Parking spaces are quite close though. There was a nice heavy picnic table but it was round and quite large. It was just in the way of our bays & steps and had to step around it every time we stepped out of our rv. It actually stuck out far enough to encroach on our neighbor as it hung over the patio. Very hard to find a close parking space to the laundry. It was geared more for golf cart access for the laundry. And I hate having to buy those laundry cards! I would rather use quarters. A bit too big of a park for me and just not my cup of tea. And it was a bit above our budget. Don't get me wrong, it's a nice place but not for me personally. - Upnorthmich
