This is an Escapes park, our first experience with this campground and a pleasant one. We will return here in the winter. The Escapes members are welcoming and helpful, so much the opposite at the previous campground we stayed at in nearby Wickenburg. Site sizes are fairly large. The sites are sunny and open. The site surface is gravel and there was a picnic table at our site. We camped at North Ranch in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

Congress is in the desert with beautiful mountain views. Open valley driving on great roads and mountain drive to Prescott five or six miles away. Surprise, AZ forty to fifty miles south (suburb of greater Phoenix). Rodeo heaven during the winter months, so that means cowboys/cowgirls on the roads with their trucks and trailers in great numbers. Terrific cowboy museum in Wickenburg.

We only stayed overnight (March 2016) and this RV park was perfectly good for an overnight stay. The price (for Escapees members) was great and the staff was friendly and helpful. The sites and roads are all gravel (typical for a desert RV Park) but we found the sites to be closer together that we like. A little more space would have made a big difference. Our back-in site was along a row of trees which were very nice, but the branches prevented us from backing our rig up as far as we normally would, so we were sticking out into the road a little bit. We had no AT&T signal but Verizon LTE worked well enough. The park recycles paper, plastic, and cans which was a nice change from most parks we stay at in Arizona. There's a pretty nice fenced dog area (gravel) and a dirt path for walking dogs. We'd gladly do a short-term stay again, but the small sites, 30-amp hookups, and lack of AT&T service would make us think twice before a longer stay. We camped at North Ranch in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

Get your rig weighed at the Escapees SmartWeigh station while you're there. That's the main reason we came here.

It's not a luxury park, but I gave it a 10 (excellent). It won't wow you with anything, but everything is as it should be. The workers were all very friendly and helpful. The fellow guests were nice. Someone here complained about the train, I just don't get that. It took me a few days to realize there was a train track in the area, and my hearing is fine.

Many of the snowbirds here are hobbyist gold miners. You might talk one into taking you with them for a day, who knows. There are also quite a few guys with UTVs who go out into the desert, but there is NO racing around inside the park. Everything is peaceful.

The value for the money is very good. We did however get the Escapees member rate. If you are going to stay for a week like we did, joining the Escapees pays for itself and quite a bit more.

It is about 15 minutes from downtown Wickenburg. But it's an easy drive. We would definitely go back, possibly for a longer stay. We camped at North Ranch in a Motorhome.

Very nice desert park. Understand what you are getting in a "desert" park. Level, gravel spots. 3-4 rows of RV's and then mobile home park. There is a wonderful dog walk and dedicated dog area (very small park) with water and chairs. Double entry gates/exit for safety. The park is in a remote area near Wickenburg, AZ. The nights are spectacular without any nearby ambient light. You can see multiple constellations and the Milky Way. Exceptionally quiet. Some people complain about trains. We heard 1 in the morning. There is some truck noise, mostly during the day. There is a club house and activity center. No complaints. 30 amp only and sewers. No amenities (pool, spa, etc). We did not use the washers or showers. We camped at North Ranch in a Fifth Wheel.

Been spending our winters here for 4 years. We really like it, obviously. Not sure why all the negative reviews. The lot owners, the ones we have met, are very nice. The only negative part is the dogs. Goodness, there are a lot of them. However, it is a nice, quiet and safe place to spend your winters. They are in the process of remodeling the restrooms, office and club house. There are a couple of pull thrus now. We camped at North Ranch in a Fifth Wheel.

A bit hesitant to stop here after reading the reviews, but stopped we did. We are Escapees members. Arrived in the afternoon, summer hours, office is closed from 11:30 to 3:30. I had called the day before to get a bit more information. The gentleman I spoke with was very friendly. Told me where to look for a spot that provided some shade trees and an exposure so our roof mounted satellite would work. Nice, level gravel spots. Wonderful eastern view to see the sunrise over the mountains. Went in to register when the office opened. We were welcomed warmly and shown around the clubhouse. Which is quite nice by the way. Clean bath/showers. Very reasonably priced laundry room. We were told of the upcoming activities and invited to join in. On the tour there was a couple working on a puzzle. They both stopped working and gave us a very heartfelt welcome There is also a smart weigh station at this location. In previous reviews someone mentioned constant trains. We heard very few in our four days here. And the few we did hear were barely audible.

We would definitely stay here again. We camped at North Ranch in a Motorhome.

Was pretty upsetting as a new, young full time RV'r to pay for an escapee membership planning to stay in this park for the first time. We arrived late, very late after driving up from Tombstone. Had to fight the trailer to get in an empty spot thanks to all the cars parked in front of the RV's across the row. Apparently folks in the know reserve all the spots where we parked because the next morning we got moved across the aisle into the ditch. The ditch? You ask? Yes there is a berm to keep the other spaces behind the row that's 2 feet lower from flooding but guess where ALL the water goes? We happen to have a rear door so when it rained (it was April it rained A LOT) we had our own private lake at our doorstep! We literally had to step onto the running board of the truck and walk the ledge then jump to the dry spot, it was hilarious! Besides the drainage issues and horrible WiFi and stinky washers in the clubhouse laundry it wasn't bad. The older folks were fun for the most part. We spent a lot of time exploring the area. We camped at North Ranch in a Fifth Wheel.

Tips for other Campers:

Martinez wash. Stanton is way overrated!

Office workers are not friendly. The site was satisfactory. The views were beautiful. The park is made up of park models and owned rv lots. There are 3 rows of rv lots for rent. 50 amp is not available. The cell and internet service was poor. A dog was barking near us and an owner came up and went through someone's site to yell at a man for allowing his dog to bark. She said she would call the sheriff if the dog barked again. The lot owners are the most unfriendly people. They make you feel as though you were trespassing. It appears that the RV park caters to the lot owners. There are no stores or restaurants close. We will not be returning. We camped at North Ranch in a Fifth Wheel.

Tips for other Campers:

Wickenburg is the closet town to shop.

As a member of Escapees, it saddens me that I cannot recommend this park. It was our first stay and they would not honor the $50 per week rate until the week after our stay. Ok. They first assigned us to a back in site, though we had requested (and there were available) pull thru sites. Even with the manager's guidance, we were unable to back into the site. For some illogical reason, they park the dry campers in front of the back-in sites making it nearly impossible to maneuver. They finally decided to put us into a 30 amp pull thru site. Again, ok. Dirt site w/ no trees, no cable, no wifi. Overpriced for what you get, I wouldn't recommend this park even w/ the $50 per week rate. We will absolutely NOT stay again. We camped at North Ranch in a Fifth Wheel.

Tips for other Campers:

Short drive to Wickenburg with its beautifully restored historic downtown.

Escapee park. Not much ambiance but lots of daily activities and very friendly staff. There was a RV repairman this season at the ranch who was excellent. Fixed my fridge with no problem. We camped at North Ranch in a Motorhome.

This is our 5th winter at North Ranch. I really like it here, however, this year it seems they have given up on the grounds. We have been here a few months and have not seen anyone taking care of the old, dead weeds and the new ones growing everywhere. The long term spots are the worse. It is a quiet, safe place. Just too bad the managers have not kept it more presentable. We camped at North Ranch in a Fifth Wheel.

This is an Escapees Rainbow Park. Most of the park are privately owned sites. The short term sites are located in two large graveled areas that could use more rock to keep it from getting muddy when it rains. Very dog friendly, nice off leash area. People running the place are all volunteers and they couldn't have been friendlier or more helpful. There is effectively no WIFI. They will reluctantly sell Tengo WIFI service but it never worked for us or anyone else we talked to. We camped at North Ranch in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

Good shopping in Wickenburg 6 miles away. Be sure to visit Desert Caballeros Museum in Wickenburg. The copper mine tour in Bagdad (and the 120 mile round trip drive) was quite interesting. A four wheel drive vehicle opens up a vast area to explore.

NOTE: This area is off-network for AT&T data plan users. We had to use Wickenburg library's free WIFI.

Primarily a resident park, visitors are parked in a large gravel parking lot with back-in sites. Sites are full hookup, 30 amp only, without grass or trees. Office and residents were very friendly, and we were welcome to attend park activities. No cable and Wi-Fi is not free, but Verizon cell and data worked well and there are no obstructions to TV satellites. Well off the highway, and dark and quiet at night. OK for an overnight or short stay. We camped at North Ranch in a Motorhome.

I disagree with the previous comments. We found the staff extremely friendly and helpful. We attended the boot camp for three days and stayed here for five days. There were scheduled activities every day (other then boot camp). There is no longer a separate fee charged for electricity. Not much ambiance but a typical desert park. All sites are gravel back ins. Our site was level. We would stay here again. We camped at North Ranch in a Motorhome.

Member price for this high desert part with gravel back ins. We had 30 amp FHU and electric is now included. Verizon worked well. Off-leash area for the dogs. We will definitely stay again. We camped at North Ranch in a Motorhome.
