3 Parks near Gold Canyon, Arizona
Oct 2015 - $11.00
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

We found the park to be clean and as advertised. The fitness room is lacking. Bowflex ruined. No free weights. Highway noise to be expected due to location. - chiefd

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

Have stayed here before (Nov2014). Stayed for 6 days this time. Mixture of park models and RV's. Stayed in the short term area near the front this time. 50 amp, water, sewer. At least 50 channels on TV antenna. Free WiFi. Free happy Hour at the pool several times a week. Two nice pools. Friendly people 55+ resort. Would definitely stay here again. Campsites are gravel with concrete pad next to RV. - 4jim

We received a gift certificate at an FMCA rally to spend 3 nights at any Cal-Am resort in Phoenix. We opted for this one because it was outside of the city. To our surprise (and delight) we weren't given any sort of sales pitch at any time.
Arrival was interesting. Because our Super-C is over 10 years old, it had to be "approved" by the supervisor. That was a little off-putting. And there seem to be tons of rules. Don't ride your bike on the sidewalks, they leave lack marks apparently.
We were put into a gravel section with mostly other RVs. All the park models were in other sections. We loved the two pools and hot tubs. I made use of the sewing room to do some quilting, it was nice to spread out. We attended an happy hour (free!). Every person we met was very friendly and very enthusiastic about this place.
The only bad thing I have to say is about the clueless-ness of the people in the main office. I am sure the staff at the check-in and activities desks are residents, but they should know more about what is going on. Simple questions about mail, access to the activity rooms could not be answered.
To summarize, my husband loved the place. I didn't appreciate all the rules, etc. It seems a little too stifling. - cmgoeke

Great park. Fantastic landscaping. Very clean. 24 hour security. Beautiful clubhouse with all the facilities you could want including 2 pools, sauna, steam room, and Jacuzzis. Quiet and friendly. Good laundry facilities. Not much to complain about here! - red yamaha

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
