Great park and facilities. However, the WI-Fi is terrible and perhaps the worst we have ever encountered. They recently added excessive gravel to the site we were assigned. It was large gravel that made it very difficult to park into and level. The pools and scheduled events are extremely clean and well managed. Would stay again, but would hope that they would make the improvements necessary to the gravel pads and WI-Fi. - Gen G
We do 4 months here over Winter. Love the people, food, activities and amenities etc.
Worst WiFi we have ever encountered and has been for a couple years. Bring your own hot spot or give up on being on line. After all the complaints we have made and heard its amazing there's been nothing but bogus reasons and no improvement. Would rather pay for reliable service.
Large fresh rocks in many spots make it hard to be level and be sturdy. You think you are going in level and one side does a 4 inch trench. Pull out and try again and finally get level. 3 days later one side sinks into the rocks and there you go again.
We will keep coming here for the other things but would really like to see small rocks for solid sites and reliable WiFi. - snowbirdstoday
I stayed for almost a week. I was at a pull-thru site and these are very close together. The back-ins are larger. The sites are all gravel with a concrete pad. Most of the sites have larger rocks than gravel and have large ruts in them since there is way more rock than needed, it makes it a bit hard to pull thru, level and get solid ground to put down your jacks. No picnic table, no other amenities other than hookups. Very few trees in the park, mostly bushes. This is a destination park for lots of northern people who stay the season. - sloopygirl
Rate is based on a monthly of $513. This park is so unfriendly to RVers with the exception of other RVers. Most of the park is old park models and the residents must resent the travelers because they are not at all nice. The office must go out of its way to get people that are clueless to work there. We were told electric was about $0.12 Kw. but when we went to pay for electric at check out it was half at $0.12 and the other half at $0.16. They could not answer my questions. It was always the women that knows is not here. We payed $77.57 for a month and did not use anything but lights. No electric heat or A/C. The women at the office could not even figure out my change when I paid cash for it. She tried on the calculator for more than 5 minutes to figure she needed to give me $2.43 back!! The end to a bad experience at an "Old" Park. - BendOR
I guess if you like being stacked into cement pads like cord wood with little landscaping, this is a place for you. Not at all designed for short term stays. I believe that it would have required a helicopter to get a few of the rigs in and out of their sites. We were virtually trapped with our 38' 5th wheel. I guess I now know the meaning of "typical 55+ snowbird park". - NVDesertGirl
Stayed here for a week. Snowbird park with a lot of park models. People very friendly and many have been returning there for many years. This is an Encore/ELS park and there seemed to be add on charges for everything. Laundry use is by card that has to be bought for $2 and then $$ added. There is no refund for unused amount when you leave. Pool is good and there are water aerobics. Pet area is fairly small but there is a dog walk area outside the back gate. This is an agricultural area, and can be extremely muddy after rain, and it did rain while we were here. The fields were not under cultivation and consequently when not muddy were dusty!! Would probably not return here. - stodarca
The park was quiet, too quiet. Ghost town quiet. Most lots are empty, they have a pool, we did not use. The Wi-Fi is terrible, and no other amenities. Lots are spacious and has large trees with concrete pads which is nice. Could be a great park if they would update. A train horn can be heard at night, but that obviously can not be helped. The Park manager is friendly, but can't do much, due to upper management. The Resident park handy man was extremely friendly and very helpful. The Park is quiet, just has a ghost town feel to it: kind of unsettling. - zookeypurr4
We wanted to stay two nights, but the park office said that they will only take a cashier's check or a money order. NO CASH OR CREDIT CARD ACCEPTED. We moved on to another park. - Luke
Very quiet, a lot of empty sites here. Kind of nice really. Pool is very nice, heated to 82 degrees night and day. The only thing I have against the park are the speed bumps. You really need to slow down for them. All in all, it's a pretty nice park. - gray ghost
Stayed only one night, and park was excellent for the Passport America price. Enjoyed the pool and hot tub. Wi-Fi worked OK. Efficient check-in and out. Would be glad to stay here again. - Edistobob
Rate based on monthly stay but rates change for high season. Combination of park models,transient residents,wide streets for our unit and nice pull thrus for short stays. Lots of activities,very friendly staff,close to all shopping and restaurants. All the bathrooms,showers,laundry areas super clean. Pet friendly with restrictions. I would've given it a 10 but many areas around the park where dogs can't walk so that's a negative for us dog owners. Would definitely stay here again. - Shirley Briand
Nice Park. The rate reflects weekly rate with Good Sam. They didn't take Passport America. We were shown to our spot by a very friendly host. We were given a spot right across from the dog park. It was very noisy and since we don't have a dog, we asked to move to another spot. The office was very accommodating of our request and we were given a much better spot for us. The sites were very large and nice. Because it's an Encore location, the laundry machines are by a credit card that you purchase for $2.00 and then add money to the card to use the machines. I didn't use the laundry because I object to having to pay for a credit card to use in the machines. The washroom/shower facility was in the office building. There was a second washroom area closer to us, but it only had one washroom and no showers. Not very convenient.The worst thing about this park is no internet at the sites. We had to walk up to the office building to get internet. It was a real pain. There were lots of activities available to do at the park and the park was close to stores and things to do in Casa Grande. We would stay here again if there was internet available at the sites. - Lollyp
Rate is approximate: we stayed here Coast to Coast. We came 3 years ago to stay for only a few days and ended up buying a park model trailer. We like it here a lot and come back every winter. There are only 4 short term pull-through sites, but there are quite a few long term sites. There is also a nice community of snowbirds who come every winter. A nice friendly place to stay: short or long term. - tajmahaulers
Stayed here under the Good Neighbor Park rate. Had a very nice pull through site. They only have a few overnight spots as there are mostly park models. Staff not overly friendly. - TeamElk-Rib
This park has insufficient power. Should not be used by RVers. Mostly residential units. We signed in for a week. First morning - power clicked on & off a hundred times. They moved us twice to get to an "improved" site and still poor power. It was cold and our inside temp got down to 40 degrees. The first site we were assigned was right by the dumpsters in the back of the park. Terrible! Finally, we asked for refund of remaining two days AND GOT IT! and left. Beware several of the Encore/Lifestyle parks are old and full of trailer homes and old camp trailers. - jdonais
This is a beautifully landscaped, well maintained and HUGE park (2100+ expanding) The sites are quite wide, with a concrete pad and gravel, no table, no plantings to seperate the sites. Kudos to the maintenance & cleaning staff...they work long hours, always cheerful and keep the place spotless. Free wifi is available at the library/computer room. Three small laundry rooms-the one near the gym & pool, where most want to wait it out, has only 8 washers available to the public, 5 others are marked 'cleaning staff only'. Far too few machines for a park this size and this was December, the RV sites are 50% empty!! Only 3 machines take coins, you must buy cards for the others and they charge an extra $3 for the card. Lots to do but there are charges for all activities except the pool exercises. ie.-$6 per line dance or Zumba class. Nice pool room, no shuffle board tables.
Very expensive...we stayed on a 'first timers' rate but to stay in January we would have paid the regular monthly rate-$31 per day, plus power & a trash charge of $30 per month. We had wanted to experience camping in a mega park, but found it's just too big for us. - camperx2
Stayed 4 mos @ $27/nite net (4 month peak rate) in this outstanding park. 40'x50' sites are pea gravel w/concrete patio slabs and hard surface roads throughout the park. This park is world class with over 2000 sites split between park models and RV sites. Still plenty of RV sites although park models/patio homes continue to be built. Every hobby interest has a group. Outstanding wood shop with very knowledgeable staff. Reservations to specific sites available. Always check special pricing promos for 1st timers! We will be returning for 4 mos in the fall of the year. Utilities are extra on monthly stay! Averaged $70/mo. - photoguy
The rate shown reflects the daily portion of a 4 1/2 month stay. This place is Paradise, and is by far the nicest park we have stayed in during our 20+ years as RVers. The grounds are immaculately kept, the sites are large, there are activities to suit every interest, and everyone we met was very friendly. We took pickleball lessions soon after our arrival, and instantly became addicted to the game. Palm Creek has 24 world-class pickleball courts, so we are spoiled. Casa Grande is a great town, not too big, not too small, with stores and restaurants to cater to your basic needs. Specialty shopping and dining is within an hour's drive near Phoenix. We will be returning in the Fall for 6 months this time. Highly recommend! - henny38
Very friendly quiet park. Loved being out in the country. Only two miles to a great golf resort-Francisco Grande Golf Resort. Liked the daily park-wide "Happy Hour" to which everyone is invited. Enjoyed being able to have a campfire with wood or propane fire pit. - Arizonaboy
Escapee RV Club park, members 55 and over only. Perhaps the friendliest park in the system. Loads of fun activites. The town of Casa Grande is a perfect mix of new and old with lots of shopping and great restaurants. - palamine
Escapees rate. The lady at check in was polite, not friendly. When I started asking questions she quickly gave me the "rules" sheet, showed me our spot and a very nice man escorted us to our site. All sites have casitas which make the backing in a bit tight but doable. Animal feedlot within 3 miles- unpleasant barnyard smell both mornings during our visit. Run the A/C. Ladies shower- one shower, $.25 for 8 minutes. The shower curtain was disgusting. This didn't just happen--that kind of filth takes a while to build up. Not much going on in town. Our preference would be to find a different location outside of Casa Grande. - Topdach

This is a very quiet park within the city of Casa Grande. I did stay here in the "off season" as it is mainly a winter visitor park. The sites are very spacious, with great electric service and great water pressure. The park is convenient to shopping, entertainment, dining, fuel and everything else a person would require. There is good security in the park with a security gate that closes at 7 PM and opens again at 6 AM. They provide a pass key to operate the gate after hours. The manager is very helpful and pleasant to deal with. The rate quoted is for a months stay and included all utilities and equates to $407.00 per month. I would stay here again. - bones1941
This is a gated 55+ community with many permanent park models. The visiting RV area is half asphalt and half gravel, kind of between 2 roads but very convenient for the activities center and all the many craft rooms. We stayed 2 weeks over Christmas and New Years and had a fantastic time. There is so much to do it's hard to keep track. They have just opened (Dec 2014) a new sports area at the rear of the park with many excellent facilitied for Pickle Ball (8 courts), Shuffleboard, horse Shoes, Boche Ball. there is even an asphalt paved RC Car race track!
Bring a bicycle to get around, the park is nice and flat.
The whole place is extremely clean and well landscaped.
everyone we met was friendly and welcoming.
If you have an RV over 10 years old call them before you get here. - Brian n Barbara
Short term stays are placed in a gravel parking area right along the road where the other residents speed past. This campground is very close to a level railroad crossing so there is train noise and whistles blowing at all hours. At 6:30 am the maintenance staff were working on the trailer directly behind us to get it ready for the occupants to arrive. They were noisy too! The weekend staff we dealt with were very friendly and helpful but the office staff were busy training someone which was their only focus. On the positive side the facilities in the park are very nice. Would not recommend and would not stay again. - seatosea
Don't come here if you are a dog owner. There are new rules that allow dogs anywhere in the park. Many of the owners of park models are unhappy with this and are unfriendly if you are walking your dog to the dog run areas which are just outside the park through a gate. You must either keep your dog on your lot or walk him in the street to the dog park. There is no parking at the dog park area since you are not allowed to park on the street. A few residents do have "we are dog friendly" on their park model. If no dog this is a great and friendly resort, with many activities, and large RV spaces. Only without a dog would I come back. - 210george
Nice older 55+ park that the management is trying to renovate. Pickle ball courts are nice and well used. The park is installing new shuffleboard courts which we will use on the next trip. Front gate staff woman was not friendly and told only the bad stuff about management. Apparently she didn't like management and was venting at everyone. There is a lot of small town politics going on that spreads over to short time visitors. We were there during the Park's Party which was food and games. The Golf Cart Races and game activity were fun. We assumed that we were not included in the party until a resident from Virginia drew us in and made us part of the fun. We will return during the Park's Party next year. - moosewatcher
This is a fairly new park, and everything looks new and clean. It appears to be more of a winter snowbird park, but had several sites for transients, and we paid the PA rate. Came in after hours, but the friendly and helpful staff came right out to check us in and lead us to our site, which was a back-in, but very large. The near WiFi was being worked on, so we used the system at the clubhouse. The WiFi worked great, and the clubhouse was large and tastefully decorated. We would definitely stay there again. - Full Timers since 2002
This park is not in Casa Grande as it says: it is several miles southeast. An OK park but the spaces are hard to get in to. All are back in and the streets are narrow. Not a tree in sight in this flat, hot desert area. Some stay year around, some leave their rigs for the summer. Although things were winding down, they still had quite a few activities going on. We were here only 2 nights, so didn't get involved in anything. We did talk to one of our neighbors, who said since they were only here for a month each winter, it was hard to feel part of the activities. Park was very clean. - mgalex
My spouse & I stayed here in a 38ft RV in October 2014 with full hookups. They had a beautiful heated pool & indoor jacuzzi within walking distance. Also had a library that was open to guests for reading, making puzzles, or playing on computers. Everyone was extremely friendly and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay. We will definitely return! - User2806
For 55+, this is a wonderful, quiet, clean and well laid out park approximate half way between Phoenix and Tucson. The campers, residents, hosts, are friendly and it has a plethora of well planned activities, entertainment and dining. We spend our winters in a 5th wheel and have stayed here for the past 5 years for times varying form 1 month to 3. - WY snowbirds
Great park for snowbirds. A 55+ park. We spent 5 months and plan on going again. Very friendly park with great staff and management. Close to Tucson and Phoenix. All kinds of activities and something for everyone. Activities well planned and carried out. A must stay if you are in the area. - rolintwo
