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

Rate is weekly, prorated. Typical snowbird type park. Lined up like cord wood. Lots of activities; pool, shuffleboard, pickleball, library,billiard room. Nice off leash area, staff friendly, & there is an actual hairdresser, manicurist shop on site. Not much to do in the area, gotta reach out to the Phoenix megalopolis area for activities. - rvrrat520

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

This was an overnight stay for us in the heat of the summer. Cotton Lane has a section for pull throughs that is clean and neat. While the long pull throughs are narrow, since there were only three rigs there in the 100+ degree weather, we all had lots of empty spots between us. There was maintenance going on that started early in the morning, like around 6 am. but that was OK for us as we were already awake. We would have liked to take advantage of the swimming pool except it was way to hot to venture outside our RV to walk to the indoor pool. Cotton Lane was a great overnight spot; easy access inside the park; wide, paved roads. Lots of construction going on between the highway and the park but hopefully construction will be done soon. - Dirt Biker

I will give this park good ratings after a six-night stay here while attending Phoenix west area spring training games, with some caveats. First, we don't have pets and weren't here to participate in the social activities - of which there are many - so we don't know about the rules for potlucks, whether the dog park near us is adequate, or have complaint about the absence of pickle-ball courts. We have stayed in a similar 55+ park before so knew to expect few showers (most residents have their own) and narrow pull-throughs. I agree with another reviewer that this IS a huge parking lot, which is what you will find here in Phoenix in the desert. However, this one is very convenient to I-10 and the other highways to ballparks and the city, and it worked great for us. Our site was level, all facilities were nice and clean, and everyone was friendly. Oh, and through our 5 years of RV travel, I've learned to never expect good WiFi, and we are pleasantly surprised the rare times that it actually works. We enjoyed our week here. - SnoopyTXfan

A park most suitable for an overnight or long-term stay, as short term sites are very close together pull-thrus while long-term sites are large back-ins. Otherwise a typical Arizona snowbird park; crowded this time of year, lots of activities, and mostly welcoming residents. Verizon cell/data was strong, there are many OTA TV channels, average cable TV, and the usual spotty WiFi. We chose this park for it's convenience; on the East edge of town with convenient access to loop 303. Easy to access if you continue east past the 303 loop construction area and then double back. - Meanderman

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
Mar 2016 - $30.00
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

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
Apr 2016 - $23.00
The sites were level. All sites had a concrete patio. The hookups are in the rear, so be prepared with extra hoses as the park will not let you borrow any. The Wi-Fi was not very good as there were too many people trying to use it. - Al and Anne-Marie
Mar 2016 - $52.00
As others have stated, this doesn't really fit as a "resort" RV park. It is primarily park models full of snowbirds. The sites are dirt and gravel, most with some type of concrete pad. The utilities all the way at the rear of the sites was probably intended for park models. LONG hoses and power cables are needed. Overall, the facilities are nice and well maintained. One plus I found was a complete wood shop. It has just about every type of woodworking power tool you can imagine with plenty of countertop work space. It's very popular and has some very helpful people supervising it.
A couple of peeves: The twice a week garbage pickup would not be a problem except there is no dumpster for the other days. This seems very short sighted and inconvenient. The jet noise from nearby Luke AFB during our stay was completely over the top. Others have stated that they don't fly at night or on the weekends did not apply during our stay. Last night, at least 3 very loud jets flew over quite low at 1:00 AM. That was the end of sleeping for me. I don't know if they are doing some kind of intense training right now or if it is always this way, but we would not return for this reason alone. It can be ear shattering and seems non-stop at times.
The posted speed limit in the resort is 10 MPH. We must have a different speedometer than most of the other tenants, as they regularly blow past doing 20 to 25. We have seen other resorts using those radar speed displays successfully.
The El Mirage Road in front of the resort is being totally rebuilt, so is a mess. No one mentioned this during my reservation phone call and it was not on their web site. The route we chose off of State Route 60 went thru the worst of the road work and forced us to the curb lane which had overhanging tree branches that added many new scratches along the top of our nearly new motorhome. It is unbelievable that the resort management doesn't get the word out to advise the best routes in and out. - Drakelos

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
