The only reason this park didn't get a 10 is because of the weird tow parking. I'm not sure I can even describe. The park is very well maintained, the check in staff was very helpful and we had an escort to our site, which was very spacious. We won't be back because we're selling our motorhome and retiring from the road, but we do recommend this park to anyone looking for somewhere to park for a few days or even months. - C Kelsey

This is our sixth season getting out of Ohio weather and staying at Leaf Verde. We find it to be very accommodating, friendly staff, clean and orderly. Alot of fun activities and so much to see in just one days drive. - Cathy Van Horn

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

Nice Park with all of the amenities. Sites are paved with cement patios. This is a very large park with a lot of permanent and long term residences. Everybody is friendly and we met some really nice people, but some of the sites are well maintained and others not (the site next to ours had an old car that hadn't run in years and dog poop), this gives the park the feeling of a mobile home park not of an RV park. There is also a lot of noise from the air force base during the day and highway noise in the morning. There is both free and paid WiFi, we used the free WiFi which worked OK. We would stay there again. - newbies2016

One of the few family friendly RV parks in the Phoenix area. We enjoyed our stay. The sites on top of each other and the price was a little high but we really like the area. The staff are friendly and the park is well maintained. The back-in sites are a little hard to get into since they're at a 90 degree angle to the road but we managed after another RV'er moved their truck for us. The pull through sites would be easier but then there is no place to put a tow vehicle other than in the gravel area. - FamilyFoofaraw

Standard nothing special HOA campground with sites on top of each other, concrete everywhere, and rocks/gravel everywhere else. Wifi was usable some days and our phone signal was fairly decent. The price is too high IMO for what you get here. Dog runs are small and dirty. Security makes rounds often at night. Close to some shopping and food. We stayed here only because it is family and age friendly. - Ghettomedic

We stayed at this park for 4 nights. The majority of the Park is set up for Park Units or long term RV'ers. We were in the back of the Park which is a dedicated RV area. This area is nice because it is next to a great dog run and your neighbors are RV'ers. Check-in was prompt and very friendly. WiFi cost so we used our Verizon hot spot. There was some road noise from I-10 that you may not get if you were not at the back of the Park. - mrkpnyb

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

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 an absolutely beautiful setting. After entering the park there is about a 2 mile drive to get to the campsite. What a beautiful place to stay in the winter. Although we prefer campgrounds with sewer hook ups, this is worth not having them. We got over 100 over the air TV channels. We will definitely be back. - Calteri
Nov 2016 - $30.00
This is a beautifully maintained park with huge spaces. We were here on a Monday in the fall and it was quite empty. It is super quiet here. This is one of the prettiest campsites we've been too, and we've been on the road for 3 months. Do note that the actual campground is quite a ways (miles) from the entrance to the park. Just keep going period and going. - beckydmc

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

The facilities are first class and very large. About 75% of the sites are Park models or modular homes. RV sites are crushed gravel with a large concrete patio and are wide enough to accommodate a vehicle, patio and RV side by side. The on site 18 hole gold course is average and we had no problem getting tee times. The only downside and the reason we won't return are the F16s and F35s that fly over Mon - Fri, 8:00am - 9:30pm. The resort is located 6 miles from Luke Air Force base which is a training base. - Karen H

This is a very nice park with a couple minor caveats. As others mentioned, it's close to a military base with F16's and F22's doing a lot of pattern work during the day. Also the whole 2 day a week trash thing with no dumpsters available at all. They were supposed to come on thursday so we put trash out and they didn't come, but the birds did and made quite a mess we had to clean up so we had to take our trash to a gas station while fueling the jeep. Other than that this place is neat as a pin, beautiful pool and hot tub, many other amenities and lots of activities. We were on a "deluxe" site which included cable and decent wifi. The cable is a box though which I had to connect outside but the remote was only infra red so I had to step outside to change channels. Water pressure was good and electric was steady at around 120vac. They lead me to the site and helped me back in. There was a small palm tree on the corner, but really was no problem backing in and site was crushed stone with a nice large cement patio. The hookups however were all at the rear (except sewer which was on the drivers side 3/4 of the way back). Water hose did reach but needed my 50amp ext cord for the electrical hookup or it would not have reached. I guess that works ok for 5th wheels and TT's? There are citrus trees all around and you are able to pick fruit from any non-permanent resident site. Front gate has security during day and secure combination access after hours. I really didn't find the jets annoying but many obviously do, but the 2 day a week trash thing was very annoying... there are some things you just don't want sitting in your rig 2-3 days waiting for trash (especially when they don't pick it up on the assigned day as I experienced). Beautiful facility with nice amenities and very friendly staff. VZW cell had 4 bars LTE. - HomeOnWheels_US

When I reserved this place to stay for a couple of days the website looked great, attractive, lots of ammenities....they forgot to mention that you have jet fighter planes every 15 minutes flying overhead. Unless you like that kind of thing...I would avoid. - 1969-Aug

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

We are staying here for 3 months as my wife is a traveling nurse working in the area. We absolutely love this place! We read all of the reviews before coming out here. There are some bad reviews or old reviews I'd like to address. Yes, there is an egg farm about a mile west and you can only get a whiff of it about 5% of the time. I can tell by the population in the park right now that those negative reviews are having an impact. Another topic of poor reviews is the lack of good cell service. I came prepared by purchasing a cell booster for the weak cell signal. But to our surprise when we arrived, we were getting 4 bars of signal. We found out from another resident that Verizon had just installed a new tower a mile away just 2 weeks before our arrival. Another concern for us was the lack of good park Wi-Fi, since reading the bad reviews. I have been playing with it and getting 3 mbs consistently, which is plenty for us to stream shows on our Roku device (And it is absolutely free). They have 4 or 5 Wi-Fi transmitters throughout the park. I'm not sure if that is a new addition or not, but the internet is working just fine and saving us on our Verizon data plan. We also took a trip through a nearby RV park just to see the differences. Man, that place had RV's stacked like wood. You had just enough room for one vehicle on your lot. Compared to that place, we have acreage. Our closest neighbor is about 40' away; the other neighbor is close to 70' away. Of course we are on a premium lot, which are double lots. I could park 9 cars in our lot. The premium lots are $380/month at this park compared to $580+/month at other parks. There are plenty of open lots, which gives you a very spacious feeling. It is very quiet and peaceful! This park has more to do than I can handle. They have Pickle Ball courts, Shuffleboard, a Pool, a Gym, Bingo, Desert off-roading, Billiards, Ping Pong, Jam sessions, Coffee every morning for the guys, etc. AAA+ - The Forsters

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

We stayed here the last two nights of January, and felt lucky to find a spot in the middle of winter, the busy season for the parts of Arizona that are in the lower elevations. We were given a choice of the regular overnight RV spots or the overflow, and we chose the overflow. It was electric and water in the parking lot behind the main hall, but it was perfect for us. Much cheaper per night (rate reflects the overflow site rate), a better fit and easier to get into with our 45' fifth wheel, and VERY close to all the amenities. There were multiple bathrooms located around the common areas, and the showers were clean and well-kept. Lots of activities, both indoor and outdoor, if you choose to participate. The tiki area served drinks and had live entertainment both nights we were there, and they offer a small selection of food with a daily special. It was a nice spot to stay, and everyone we encountered was very friendly. The staff bent over backward for us, and we can't say enough good things about them. We would stay here again when in the Phoenix area - which we were because we were visiting friends. We did hear the jets from the air base, but they didn't bother us, we love to hear the sound of freedom. There was a paid concert one of the nights we were there, and things were busy and the parking lot full, but that goes with the territory. We were asked to move our truck over a few spots so it would be out of the way and provide more parking, and that was fine. This is a 55+ park that caters to snowbirds and annual owners, but the overnighters are included and made to feel welcome. - Denise and Glenn

Hard place to rate - the pool, common areas, amenities and activities are first rate, but the actual camp sites are awful. The sites are long, but you are packed very tight side to side. Wifi was unusably slow. It wasn't bad for an overnight with the Passport America discount. I encountered a lot of permanent residents and they were all very friendly. - KAP99

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
