Park basic, cheap. Manager is rude and lies to the customers. Noisy. Far from town. - Sergei

Rate reflects annual site charge. Very friendly park with nice amenities. Lots of ATV's and OHV's with group rides several days a week. Pool, pickle ball, shuffleboard, church services, bocce ball, horseshoes, paved streets for walking and biking. Desert access for biking, hiking or ATV. A good mix of full time RVers, snowbirds, permanent residents and overnighters. There are a fair number of park models mingled in with RV's. - ksgypsy

We stayed here 3 Months. Lots of activities. Very friendly staff. And very friendly campers. This campground joins BLM land and is great spot for 4 wheelers you can go out the back gate for access. Perfect spot to walk your dog. Sites are nice and wide. We will come back again. - 210george

The best aspect of this park is the friendliness of the residents. We stayed in the park for a month and got a reduced price but it was still costly and long-term residents pay extra for their electricity. The park has great facilities including 2 pools and hot tubs with tennis, pickle ball, bocceball, horseshoes and a library, computer lab and many other club facilities and activities. The park includes lots of park model residents and a permanent house area adjacent to the RV and park models. It is the kind of place where the motto is "if you are bored it is your own fault" because there is so much to do. The park is quiet despite being on a busy highway with lots of traffic and difficulty getting out at certain times. - mountainfan

This is actually two facilities in one. Canyon Vistas is a traditional 55+ RV Resort with 600 spaces for RVs and Park Model Homes. It is adjacent and attached to Superstition Mountain, which is a 55+ community of manufactured homes with attached RV ports or garages. Both facilities offer a full range of amenities (pickleball, tennis, clubs, happy hours, etc) and residents of either side of the resort have access to all amenities. Since they are attempting to sell out the RV Port section of the community they offered a free week at a RV show. Very nice people. Monday breakfast social introduces new residents and guests. Happy hour 3-5pm M, W, and F with live music is especially nice. Located in Gold Canyon, just a 20 minute drive to Mesa. Site overlooks Superstition Mountain and is surrounded by protected land (desert). Any size rig will enjoy this rv park with full hookups. Advertised free wi-fi only worked in reception, and even there was very slow. Cable TV available if you are staying 1 month or more from an outside provider. Vast majority of residents are seasonal, with lots of folks from Central and Western Canada. - Ncw

We stayed in the short-term area, which is up front. Kind of a strange setup; the spaces each have a concrete pad, but nothing else (but gravel). There may be a tree or bush here or there, but really no shade. However, you'll probably be looking directly across the road at the beautiful Superstition mountains - not too shabby.
The pads are all up close to the roads and they don't go that far back, so if you have a gas motorhome with a mid-point entry door (like us), it will open up to gravel, as will your outdoor under-awning space. If we tried to move all the way forward to at least position the entryway to open up to the pad, we would've needed extensions for both power and sewer, as they are way to the back.
If you pay for short-term space, their policy is no refunds if you have to leave early (they made an exception for us, as the reason we had to leave was lack of space in another of their parks).
Lots of amenities here - two nice pools, a large well-stocked library with books and videos, five pool tables, a large exercise room chock full of new equipment, etc. If this is your thing, you will be in heaven here. Miles of walking within the park as well.
For being out of town, there is plenty nearby. A very nice grocery store (with Starbucks and bakery) across the road, with several restaurants, Chase bank and a nearby Walgreens. Five golf courses across the road. Drive just a few miles west to Signal Butte for more shopping (a huge Walmart, theaters, restaurants, etc.), with a Costco just a little bit further west.
No cable TV, and marginal internet (try the different WiFi hubs, as some are faster than others even if they all appear with the same signal strength). Plenty of over-the-air stations, however. Got decent LTE cell service (AT&T). - coffeetime

Rate reflects a 30 day rate. Overall we are very satisfied with the resort. The site we had did have cable TV ,electric, and trash were included. For longer stays that differs as per website. The cable is good, the trash pickup is twice a week, and since no can is provided most purchase one. We did at Camping World. The pet area is not adequate in my opinion...poor grass,no trash can there and no lighting. Also limited area to walk the dog. We heard they have plans to expand the pet area in October. The resort location was perfect for us as away from major traffic areas but 10-15 minutes away from anything you need. Also, we went into the housing development across 60 and could bike, walk or hike into the mountain. There is plenty to do in and out of the area such as hike,golf,sight see multiple cities nearby. - A.E.Michell

We received a coupon for a free visit at a rally. The price I quoted is a daily rate without a coupon. The grounds are lovely with good signage and a nice entry road. The roads by the camp sites are a bit on the narrow side for easy maneuverability in and out of sites. The sites are gravel with nice-sized concrete patio pads. Our site had quite a slope, but most appeared to be flat. The utilities are placed at the back of the site and we had to use an extension for the sewer. The majority of the sites are occupied by older park models but most have attractive landscaping. The park is immaculate and the green of the golf course, and the landscaped park models, are a nice change from the rocky grounds of much of this area in Arizona. There are many activities and we felt welcomed and were invited to participate in dances and meals. There is one dog park. It is a nice size and has grass, but no shade in the heat of the day and no lighting at night. There is no WiFi or cable unless you purchase a package. Other than that, my only complaint was that we backed up to a park model with a noisy A/C unit and a noisier dryer. We would stay here again, especially if we could stay for a longer period of time so we could get involved in activities. - Dreaming
