First, this is one of the most aesthetically pleasing parks we've stayed in during our first year of living FT in an RV. The owners have taken great care to keep the facility pleasing to the eyes. There is a B&B on property that is equally nice. There is a lovely pool/spa area with citrus trees growing on the property. They aren't treated so you have to get to the fruit before the bugs do. The coyotes were very interesting to listen to at night off in the distance and sometimes close by, but never on the property. Keep your animal on a leash though. We live in a 39' fifth wheel toy hauler and had no problems getting into our site. This is a small intimate park. The park provided Wi-Fi is very poor. You will be able to use your Verizon phone here, but the air card service is very unreliable. We still work full time and had to leave early because of the unreliability of running off a Verizon air card. The site next to us left too because he has a Sprint phone that would drop his calls. It's very unfortunate because I'd love to stay longer. You are out away from civilization, and your cell signal bounces between three towers. The beauty of this place is it is almost like camping again even though you live in an RV. Also, this is not a 55+ park which is nice. (AZ law requires the parks allow 20% of those under 55 into the park, but you have to take their word for it). The sites are large for this part of the country with lots of natural flora/fauna. We were in site 42 which was very nice until they started parking overflow vehicles in the desert behind us. It killed our view. And, the site that filled up in our right back corner was a little too close, but it's better than most parks in the area. The only negative I can say is the campers who have returned for 8+ years started things off on the wrong track for me. They stay on the back row. We have a dog and take proper care of her. But, I was given the "evil eye" when I walked her in the back row area behind the RV and over by the dog walk. Turns out you are judged before they know you are staying in this back area. They've had problems in the past with other campers allowing their pets in the common RV area for the back row folks and not cleaned up after their pet. Thankfully, I was approached, and the person apologized, but it just set a bad tone. This same group holds daily happy hour as well. I think they could have been welcoming, but I'm not sure I want to associate with folks who are so "tight" and react without knowing facts. I truly hope when I hit the 55+ age that I have more on my mind than to worry about stuff like this and talk about other people. The upside is they do keep an eye on what's going on in the park, so nothing gets amiss fast. If you are a big rig, make sure you stay in a premium site. It's a little more costly but well worth it. Overall, I hate to leave this RV park and would love to return when we don't have to work full time anymore. One last word, the folks are so helpful that make the reservations. I couldn't say anything nicer about the people who work for the RV park. Happy trails! We camped at Rancho Sonora Inn & RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Very nice people, the long-term section of the park was great (lots of lovely decorations) but unfortunately we had problems in the overnight section. (The electricity did not work: the owner said they would fix it.) Overnight section did not have much privacy plus no sewer. Pool and spa were too cold to use. No fenced dog area but lots of space to walk around. Club house was very nice and the laundry facility was free. Overall this is probably a better place for someone who is planning on staying a couple of months. We camped at Rancho Sonora Inn & RV Park in a Motorhome.

Nice friendly park. At this time of the year the main sites are all long termers who have been here a number of years. We were in overflow area which did not have sewer nor was Wi-Fi signal available. Had to walk to the club to get signal. People are very friendly and about half the park is involved in traveling throughout the area in their 4-wheel drives, mostly Jeeps. Would stop here again.

Rancho Sonora is a nice RV park with a small inn and casitas on the property. The park was mostly vacant an quiet as we camped here in the off-season. The park is well maintained and situated in a nice desert setting. There's a walking path through the desert which is nice early in the morning. The stars are bright as the park is well away from the city. The Wi-Fi worked well. We camped at Rancho Sonora Inn & RV Park in a Motorhome.
