Staying here for 1 week. Rate based on weekly rate discount. This is a 55+ community with a small group of sites set aside for RV's. Calling ahead for a reservation is definitely recommended. Overall, we have found it to be very neat, clean, & peaceful. Residents are friendly. Some older units, but all are well maintained. The sites are gravel (like 99% of the area), but not dusty. Each site has a good sized paved patio. Interior roads are paved & easy to navigate. The only negative I have found is that the electrical hook-up at this site is 50 amp only. An adapter is necessary for a 30 amp rig. The community is very convenient to the Chandler area. Lots of shopping close by. If you are coming in on the AZ-202 Loop, do not take the Gilbert Road exit unless you are okay with a u-turn to get to the campground entrance. There is no cut in the median across from the entrance. We would definitely stay here again when in the Chandler area. - Life's good

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

Having viewed Twin Palms on Google Earth, I was a little apprehensive about spotting the entrance on arrival but no problems.
A very well maintained, clean park with excellent facilities. Grounds keepers were there about 8:00 Tue morning, trimming, mowing and blowing to maintain the very neat appearance.
I was especially impressed with the sewer hookup. It had not been run over, cross-threaded by an 800 lb. gorilla or otherwise abused and made unusable.
This was our first visit but not the last. - jrbarber

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 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

We spent several days in this park, we were in town for an unexpected family emergency and found its location very good for getting around to different areas. The motorhome area is rather tight, we had to sandwich in between mobile homes. However if we went again we would just ask for one in a different location. The site had full hook ups and was long enough for coach and our tow vehicle. It was very level. The full-time neighbors in the mobile homes were not happy to see us there pulling our motorhome in and out. The staff in the park however were very friendly and helpful. This is a good size park with two swimming pools and two clubhouse is filled with activities. - Nan Griff

We stayed here for the entire months of January and February. The $24 a night price reflects the monthly rate plus the flat-rate electricity (unusual, as other places we've stayed at month-at-a-time bill you for actual usage).
Palm Gardens has a "low-end" section called The Village, which is where many of the RVs and single-wide trailers are located. It's convenient to the south clubhouse / pool, but also close to Lindsay Rd. which is noisy. Still, we had plenty of room to get our rig in and out plus to park our toad. We liked that CenturyLink provides short-term DSL service to the site, which was a win-win for us. Less for our cell minutes, and true broadband for streaming Netflix, etc.
You enter only on Main, but can exit either on Main or on Lindsay. Post office is adjacent to park, Fry's grocery /gas a block away, Camping World a few blocks away, Walmart a few miles away, ditto for Costco.
Mail delivery is right to your site, which is nice.
Not as many amenities as the Cal-Am resorts we've stayed in, but it is a nice place to stay, and if we returned to Mesa, we'd probably stay here again. - coffeetime

Clean park, mostly a manufactured home park vs. an RV park. RV sites seemed to be primarily occupied by long term residents. Very clean and neat. Price reflects Passport America discount for a week, plus 2 days at the regular rate. WiFi did not work in our section of the park. Verizon JetPack worked well. We were put in a site between 2 single wide trailers; very quiet location, much quieter than the RV section that was close to a busy street. Laundry facilities were about the cleanest we've seen at any RV park with plenty of machines and reasonable prices. - DRFink

Nice park but overpriced as far as I'm concerned. Selected this park due to the Encore affiliation expecting service and security. Granted I visited in Labor Day weekend but staff, office and security were minimal. Office closed for 3 1/2 days and security shut down every night just when you might think security would be most needed. That being said, there were two pools, two spas, major cable tv, free wifi (didn't use though), library, meeting hall, dog runs (absolutely no shade) Park has an eleven page set of rules. Pets are welcome but again strict rules (the first time I have encountered a 5 ft leash rule) and a potential $50 fine for failure to register your pet with the office (hard to do when you only find out about it in the registration information packet and you go to the office only to find it closed). Parking pads are either gravel or asphalt and were level. Most sites are back in. Park is about 50% park models. - Bobco

We were with a group of 8 rigs, both motorhomes and 5ers. We were parked together in a quiet area. Upon arrival we were escorted to our sites and later visited by the hospitality crew with maps, information and cookies. The staff was excellent helping with our needs. We used a meeting room for three nights at no extra charge. The entrance off of Main is a little tricky if you are making a right turn as there is an island just after you turn in. The guard station was not always manned. We would definitely return, especially if we had a group. - norm scherer

Access to the park is only via Main Street and can be very tight for a big rig, we are a 40' 5er. Staff escorts you to your site. Neighbors are 8-10' on either side. Most landscaping was tall palm trees that can cause tight maneuvering. Scheduling the site was a real hassle due to staffing problems. There are over 1600 rv sites and lots of concrete. Staff was friendly. Laundry was acceptable, good value, and pretty clean. We stayed here for an rv inspection week long class but otherwise would not return. Just not our preferred type of Park. Their Internet was more than acceptable but most snowbirds had already left. The street noise on Lindsay is loud, ear plugs and sound machine necessary. - Jbnau

This is a nice little park right in town. We purchased a new RV a stayed here for a week to shake out all the bugs. Many stores, restaurants and RV shops close by. The traffic noise is pretty bad from morning until late evening but it is very quiet at night for sleeping. The owner, Bobby, was very pleasant and helpful. We would stay here again for short term only, a month or less. - Abyss

We just returned to this park, still with our 40' Alpha which we just cannot part with. We love this quiet little park. The owner greets us and guides us into our spot every time. The guests are almost all winter snowbirds, and all are very nice. Hookups are convenient and our space was large enough for our multiple slides and Jeep. This was just a short trip through, but the weather was nice and we ate outside at the picnic table every night. We will be back any time we are in this area. - RalphOnTheRoad

Very nice park. Lots of activities, nice pool/spa area. Over the air TV stations were more than enough. Friendly helpful staff. The down side. . . Extremely tight spots, i normally don't have any issues backing my rig up, but they were very specific where the rig had to be. Narrow streets and location of palm trees and single wide permanent tenants made parking an ordeal. The wifi is non existent. - Mobeywon

55+ park an expensive "resort" that's more a mobile home park. In town for a funeral and it was close to cemetery. Reservation made and arrived just before dark. They sent me to a waiting area and parked the unit that came in behind me saying if I was not in a site by dark I had to stay in the waiting area. He came by and said to follow him we were headed to the same area. Got to my assigned site and there is a Tow dolly & Class A in the site. He comes back and says they are supposed to be gone. Directed to another site and he leaves again, wife and I are backing in and he is back with headlights in my eyes. Wife says I will finish backing if he turns the golf cart lights out so I can see. He was friendly but the spaces and street are narrow, and over priced. Had I been earlier I would have looked for another place. - Edd505

This was a monthly rate and the value only applies to monthly or longer stays. If you stay for three months they really give you a good rate unfortunately we have to move on after a month at this point that is the longest we can stay put in one spot. This resort has a lot of things to do that are active you can be as active as you want or you can relax and do nothing if you want, the choice is yours. The interior roads are somewhat tight but they are manageable . We enjoy this park we've made lots of friends and got involved in a lot of the sports activities so I could actually see the day when we are staying there possibly three months. Your utilities are charged per your use and billed monthly you also pay a water, sewer service charge this is all Included in the dailey rate that I posted it was probably closer to $25 but 26 gives you a good idea for a monthly stay. We camped here in a motorhome - monaco cruiser

We have stayed athere Val Vista Village previously but not during this discounted period. A pleasant surprise for all the amenities offered at Val Vista Villages. We were camped in a pull thru in the Ranchos section of the park. Right across the street from the large, outdoor pool. A hot tub is also provided. Our site at #39 was not quite level. It slanted from rear to front, requiring my auto level to almost have the front wheels off the ground but not quite. Pads are concrete with a bricked patio. Disposal containers are at each site along with a partitioned, fenced patio, along with a very nice picnic table. Easily the best site I have used in 2 years of FT. We were only in town for the weekend. The $93/night rate is extreme for me but at 50%, I was willing to pay for that for the amenities provided. Interior streets are somewhat narrow but can be navigated even with my 40' Class A towing an 18' car hauler trailer. We remained connected in our 80' pull thru!!! Gated community with a 24 hour gate house security. You are escorted to your site and assisted if needed. Close to shopping, restaurants and entertainment. Easy access to park from major roadways in Mesa and from US60, AZ101 and AZ202. Will return if need arises during off season. Winter months, this park is packed with seasonal visitors, especially from our northern neighbor, the Canadian provinces. This is a Cal-Am associated park. Many of these Cal-Am parks close by and in Gold Canyon. - kihei7

This is a huge park but it is well cared for and the sites are adequate. We stayed here because of the need of a repair to our tow vehicle and waiting for the part. Of course at this time of year the park was less than half full! But the office staff was were very pleasant to deal with. Our only problem was getting lost trying to find the exit! Took awhile to figure things out. Lots of amenities at this park for the winter visitors and beautiful facilities. We would stay here again. Our rate was the weekly rate. - Rick & Karen

This was our very first week in our motor home, and we lucked out! I had been desperate to find a place with availability in the middle of snowbird season in the middle of Phoenix as a couple under 55! When Val Vista Villages called regarding our online reservation request, the kind lady forgot to ask our ages. When we arrived (that same day), they realized their mistake but were over the age-requirement capacity and let us stay. The amenities are incredible; and we used the pool, hot tub, game meet ups, and gas fire frequently. The street we stayed on was full of friendly people and pets. Our dogs really loved the socializing at the nearby pet run. There's plenty to do in a very nice community. - RVin Marvin

This is a large scale park-model community that has empty (usable) RV sites scattered throughout. It's hard to get a count of how many sites are available for travelers. The place is immaculate. It's a 55+ "community" so there are lots of activities for senior citizens. We don't need anything like that, but we're happy to be here in a clean, comfortable site with all working utilities. We were escorted to our site by a man in a golf cart who directed me while I backed in. He did a decent job. The park is dotted with orange trees, but they aren't really "shade" trees. You'll depend on your awning. The Wi-Fi is in the clubhouse. Though it's usable in some close-in sites, it should not be depended on for in-rig use. There is a cable-tv cable, but one needs to be on a long term stay, so you can have the cable company turn it on (at your expense.) We were glad to get a site here, as Mesa/Phoenix in the winter is hard to visit at the spur of the moment. - Ed Greenberg

I stayed here for a week while visiting with family nearby. The park has many amenities, but I only used the laundry, which was very clean and relatively new equipment. This park also has "Park Models" which are in very good shape. I am returning here for the "winter special" this year. Since this was summer and warm many of the RV sites were empty, so lots of room! Each site has a small cement patio between your RV and Vehicle. - RetiredVagabond

The rate listed was using a monthly rate. This is the second year we stayed in this park. It is an older park that is well kept. It has a limited number of sites for large RVs. We had no problems the first year, but the management has changed its billing policies. We came in in the middle of the month and had intended to leave in the middle of the month three months later. We expected to pay a monthly rate for three months. But the park insisted that it had to charge us the weekly rate ($270 a week)for the last two weeks of our stay or we could pay the monthly rate instead which would be less than the $540 for two weeks). In any case, the result was that we would be overcharged around $270.00. We had a hard time actually getting someone to sit down and talk to us, but when we did, we received no satisfaction. We left shy of a two months stay and will not return. The management company apparently doesn't care much for the park's welfare, and the owners, whoever they are, ought to look into this. When we first arrived, our neighbors were very unhappy about their billing as well, and left earlier than intended. At that time we did not understand, really, what they were talking about. Now we do. - North Dakota

Very nice and clean park. Great laundry room and pool. Showers are not wheelchair accessible, but management was more than accommodating and allowed us to utilize the pool shower which was wheelchair accessible. Average age of residents around 70 compared to our ages of mid fifties, that was about the only negative. All employees of the park more than helpful and friendly. Would definitely stay here again. Gated, quiet and very convenient. - cherylh
