71 Parks near Chandler, Arizona

This place is all about the value. We discussed some of the "questionable" reviews with management prior to arriving for a one month visit close to daughter #1. Frankly, this was about the only option near Chandler, so we took the chance. I would suggest you ask for a space in the "main part" of the park, which is peppered with a combination of mobile homes, and RVs. There is a small section for RVs closer to Gilbert Rd., and it was noisier there. Just about all sites we saw in the main park of what essentially is a mobile home park with RVers tossed in were back-in, and you might find yourself at the limit of your 50 amp line to reach the power pole. Power in Chandler (in fact much of AZ) goes on and off...in our case 5 times in one month. We counted on our surge protector to keep things in shape, and the power was 117/119v across both legs pretty much all the time. Our site was wide enough for 4 slides out, plus the toad either in front/or to the side. A concrete pad was large enough for the awning to cover the chairs. We brought our own Internet, and the cable was just fine. 100+ year old cactus, oleander/bougainvillea (in bloom), and palm trees abound. The pool was large, deep and clean. The hot tub next to the pool was hot and clean. In looking around, it's like time stands still here. The maintenance guy on the golf cart hands out doggie treats, the central courtyard surrounding the pool complex, and the interesting mix of "desert rat" residents, transient RVers, multi-month snowbirds, and local working residents make for an interesting and friendly mix. Anytime we caught ourselves comparing to some of the jazzier places we have stayed we stopped, because we couldn't name one that offered full 50 amp hook-ups for what is about 20-30 bucks a day. If you are looking for luxury...keep driving. However, if you want a unique, clean, value-laden historical piece of Arizona RV'ing...go ahead. - tres gatos

We were here for 3 nights, wish it had been less. This is basically a mobile home park with spots for a few RV's as an afterthought in a very tight corner of the park right next to a very busy road with lots of buses and a 24 hr. Circle K right behind us. We have stayed in nearly 100 RV parks and campgrounds and this was one of the worst we have ever tried to pull in or hook up to. Our electricity was shared on a 30amp circuit with a gigantic lighted 2-sided billboard over our head, so that if we used more than 2 appliances at the same time in our trailer, the circuit would break. Turn the breaker off and out goes the billboard! The sewer hookup was actually underneath the RV, so you hook up and back over your sewer. Road noise was inconceivable. The office's answer for everything was "that's the way it's always been". We had a hedge of bushes between us and the bus stop and music playing 24 hours a day at the Circle K. The pool/rec room was nice. We would NEVER return here. This park would be better served to eliminate the RV spots. - kcjflea

We stay here because it is reasonably close to our son in Gilbert. It is mostly long term residents. It is a 55+ community so kids aren't here. Actually not sure what the price is because we arrived after the office was closed and it isn't open on weekends. We were here last year for 5 days and were put in an area for short term. They were too close together so this time having a bigger RV I requested a larger site. Had site #30 which was right by rest rooms and laundry and was perfect. Large patio, plenty of room to park. Will stay again. - Junia

We made reservations to stay here. When we arrived, the site was a vacant lot full of weeds. No central hook ups, just residental stubs left over from a long gone park model. Avoid this place. - Luke

This manufactured home park is central to everything in the Mesa and Phoenix area in our opinion. This is our third time here. Last time was three years ago. There are many many more sites available to RVers because of the aging population here. Many of the mobiles have been dismantled and as a result the sites are huge!! The people are very friendly. The two swimming pools are well maintained as is the very large hot tub. The roads are very wide and are asphalt. This is a very easy park to negotiate to the sites. Just check the site before you drive in as there may be some left over metal from the previous home but the park has tried to clean the sites up. Water, sewer, and electric are included. The price reflects the monthly rate divided by 30. The nightly rate is around $30 a night. This is the best deal that we have found in the area and will come back whenever we are in Arizona. - Rib

This is a 55 + park that indicates RV's welcome. We spent two weeks here and were comfortable and had the use of the pool. Wi-Fi is not advertised but I was able to pick it up. The garbage is only picked up once per week which is fine if you are in a park model but not good enough for an RV. No dumpsters available. Pleasant surroundings easy access to the Mesa/Phoenix area. Would not stay here again just not our style. - Rib

Just an older park located close to ASU in Tempe. Right next to the metro line. Quiet enough, but most sites are permanents who pay no attention to speed limit signs in the park. Back in sites only, you need lots of sewer and water hose as well as a long electric cord as all the sites have hookups at the very rear of the site. The sites were just wide enough to avoid a cramped in feeling and deep enough for a 45ft motorhome. We found the manager friendly enough, and it was OK for a couple of nights. - run2

Be aware of the 14-day cancellation fee. We had a reservation for five nights; asked to change it to four when we arrived but too late, had to pay for five. Park is small with sites crammed in everywhere; some are wider than others. Access to sites is not a problem as long as you pay attention to where you were going. Restrooms, pool and the grounds in general are well-maintained. Location is convenient to any place in Tempe, and even downtown Phoenix since the light rail station is across the street from the park. Some airplane noise when the planes take off to the east, but generally quiet at night. - Ray Z

Our fourth spring stay at Apache Palms has remained remarkably consistent. The RV park is well maintained and the management is very friendly and accommodating. The park has revamped its WiFi with several transmission locations. When the WiFi worked, it was excellent; however, during our stay the company that actually provides the Internet service was constantly attempting to get the system to work reliably. On another note, more security seems to be in place at Apache Palms and that is much appreciated.
The laundry and shower areas are well maintained. The same can be said for the pool and spa areas. Even though the pool is relatively small, the water temperature is perfect for just about any external temperature.
What my wife and I look forward to is camaraderie among the people staying here. In the spring, many are visiting the area for spring training baseball, so you see banners supporting the Giants, Angels, Cubs, etc. Unlike other venues we've been to recently, the short term and long term occupants are very congenial.
Hopefully we'll be back again next year! - Professor Ken

We stayed at this park because of the convenience. We were meeting friends. Spaces very, very small. Attitude very different. Offered a reward if you caught someone throwing a cigarette down or let your dogs "poop". Free nights stay. Did not want pets urinating on their trees, etc. Encourages you to take pets to an empty lot down the street which was riddled with broken glass. Employees spent many breaks sitting outside the office smoking.
You could catch the trolley right across the street. Very close to shopping and college.
Told you when you stayed no regular spots open. Had to pay the extra for a spot which gave you a picnic table and Bar-b-q. - Sander1

This was a convenient campground for visiting friends and family in the area. As a result, we did not spend much time there. Clean. It appears that there are mostly permanent or semi-permanent residents. Interior roads are navigable, but can be a bit tight even for a 35' motorhome. Owner wonderful and very helpful. We would not hesitate to stay here in the future. - dandd

This place is a gem! We are relocating for a job to the Phoenix area from Indiana. I checked out at least 15 places online where I could park our 33' travel trailer long term while I found a rental house and my wife was packing in Indiana. I am so lucky to have found Green Acres. I visited several of the other places I had looked into and this was hands down the best choice for short or long term stays in Mesa. There are several locations that claim to be RV Campgrounds but are either an old motel that was partially torn down or an aging mobile home park that has vacant spots between extremely run down ancient mobile homes, very scary. First of all, for Green Acres the facilities and grounds are spotless with many nice touches that make it feel like home. The staff is extremely accommodating but very firm on making sure things are kept clean and rules followed. The laundry facilities are very usable and next to the pool that has a misting system over a covered seating area...just right for waiting on the dryer. The spots are small but adequate and as expected with this being so close and accessible to everything including the metro rail system. There is an amazing Thai restaurant and Vietnamese bakery just across the street. I would stay here again and would recommend it for anyone looking for a clean, value based, comfortable place to stay while in the valley. Only reason why I gave the bathrooms a 4 and not a 5 is that while house like nice and extremely clean they do not have AC so unless you go first thing in the morning they can be hot in the summer. - Dodgeboy64

Older park in town, sites are very closely packed together. Best selling point is the location, less than a block from Safeway and a stop on the light rail system that goes right into downtown Phoenix, Cubs stadium within a mile. Big rigs would have an issue. I'm little, so I'll be back! - ldukeb

I parked my new 32' Motorhome here from January through April. The rate I paid was a monthly rate. Although we kept the RV there (hooked up), I did not stay there full time but we were in and out all winter. I really enjoyed my stay there. The managers were great to me and very accommodating my entire stay and went out of their way to greet us every time we arrived. The management worked 7 days a week making improvements to the park. They were diligently working on removing the remaining mobile homes to make it entirely an RV park. I believe when I left there were only maybe 3 mobile homes left to remove. They have plans for even more improvements by next season. Finally, I cannot finish without saying how friendly all the campers were in the park and we have made some good friends. - Dino H

Did we come at a bad time? Reservation system is ridiculous. Long "application", include a picture of your dog and rig? And a non-refundable $25 deposit (not applied to your stay)? Then, if accepted, pay for your full stay in advance. Only one shower/restroom which was filthy and lights didn't work. WiFi only at office. No cable TV. No place for pets to play. If you are looking for a spot in Scottsdale, keep looking. - CCR

The park is in transition from being a mobil home park to an rv park. It isn't pretty but the location is great to enjoy Scottsdale. Old laundry room is not inviting but the monthly rate is fair and for a city park the spaces are roomy with all the old concrete from the old mobil homes that have been removed. - suz111

We stayed here for a few days for Angels spring training baseball. From their website, this place looks pretty good so decided to give it a try. Don't be fooled, it looks really nothing like website shows, kind of deceptive. The sites are mingled in with double and single wide trailers, many of which have seen their days. The surrounding area is not the best either. Some of the positives are a very nice pool / spa, clubhouse & gym. Plenty of room at the sites. At best, use this spot as a home base to check out the surrounding areas. We would not stay here again. - kirksumida

This RV resort is convenient to the freeway bypass and provides easy access to the Phoenix, AZ area. The resort is undergoing changes, moving from a mobile home park into an RV resort and vacation retreat. The sites are mingled with Mobile Homes and do provide total hookups. The community access is gate controlled, the amenities offered are clean and the staff is very helpful and friendly. This is a good stop, for overnight or long term, worth the effort. Just know it is a bit more than an RV resort, at least for now. - SilverBear

This tiny park is well groomed with small flowering trees when I was there in April (no shade). Any rig under 34 feet should fit in any of the 20 spaces arranged in a U-shape. Very nice bathroom (single use) and small laundry ($2 load). No other facilities are present.
Since it is the backyard of Steve's Cycle Shop (the owner), on Main Street in Mesa, the noise is right there. Roaring motorcycle noise plus regular traffic made it unpleasant to spend a month there.
It is on the east side of Mesa, close to carpet and awning shops and many RV sales lots. If you are in the market for an RV, there are several within walking distance. Camping World is across the street.
The daily rate listed here is based on $425 monthly fee (includes $10 electric meter reading fee, plus a $15 Trash fee) plus all the other fees charged including electricity.
When you check out, another $10 meter fee (owner checks the meters so he charges for his time (2x $10) to read the meter when you check in/out), plus water/septic/trash charges and a $10 key charge (refundable). There is an $8 billing charge plus 13 cents per KWh, which is about average for the area.
The site rental paperwork is the same as though you are renting an apartment/house rather than an RV site. He does let you fill out the paperwork and return it to him.
There is a $250 deposit required at time of reservation which you must get refunded after the utilities are deducted and the keys returned. If you are leaving the area, don't plan on departing Sunday or Monday as the shop is closed. - Margo Armstrong

Stayed here for one week. The park is small with only 15 sites but it was quiet (except for occasional motorcycle noise from the shop next door). Our site #10 was a back in site and had plenty of room with our 36 ft motorhome with 2 slide outs and our tow dolly and car. No bad smells all week we were there. We would stay here again for a short stay...for the convenience of the location. Camping World right across the street. - kemosabe

I like a small park, this fits the bill, spaces are normal size which is not too terribly wide but fine for me. Friendly staff and campers, some landscaping, excellent wifi, local cable channels, clean laundry and restrooms, not terribly noisy since road noise is buffeted by the motorcycle shop out front. Icing on the cake is the Camping World directly across the street, a good repair shop a block away, a nice walking/bike path along the canal out the back gate and very good mass transit. Long term visitors book by July, I was just 2 nights and was able to call the day before and get a site. I'd make this my go-to park when I'm in Mesa. - abbyarts

I suspect this is a great park in the winter for snowbirds. But for an RV in the summer: not so good. Electricity was not good. I wasn't getting full 50amps and you need every bit of it when it's 110 degrees. Pool and clubhouse was very nice but the AC in the gameroom was very bad. - LEB2
May 2012 - $42.00
I would not recommend this resort during the summer months, as the pool was like bath water with debris falling from the palm trees into the pool. The site size is very very tight. No grass anywhere to dogs to walk on. People are unfriendly. Said "Good morning" to everyone we passed on the streets, no one person acknowledged. Especially, I said "Hello" to a lady riding a bike, she did not respond. However, as we were walking our two dogs towards the lake area, she yelled out that we are not permitted to walk dogs in this area, only on the perimeter of the property. The perimeter was asphalt and concrete. The website is very deceiving. It is in a very bad looking neighborhood. - The Sconyers and their boys

55+ park, but allows 38+. One of the best parks we have ever parked our 40' coach. We are insurance property adjusters and stay at many parks across the nation. Roadrunner has a 1st class staff and park. Always friendly and accommodating. The park is sparkling clean and friendly residents. We were sad to leave, and know we will stay there again when back in the area. Kim and Kathy are so friendly and helpful. We call Roadrunner 'Pleasantville'. Must visit and treat yourself to an awesome time. Great location to many activities, but quiet and away from traffic. Security guard on duty. Thank you Roadrunner - you are top of our list of great places to park! - Nancy DJ

I really enjoyed my stay here, a very good value for the cost (apparently a year-round price). It is difficult to find a reasonably-priced RV park this close to the Gilbert/Chandler area. The Manager made me feel right at home.
My stay lasted four months during the summer season. Due to the time of year, it was very quiet. The small RV sites are clustered together among the park models. At this time of year, there were no neighbors in my section except a few park model occupants.
The park is old and the electric meters could use a paint job, but the laundry room, restroom facilities, and community center were kept immaculate. The pool was small but well maintained. - Margo Armstrong
