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. We camped at Canyon Vistas RV Resort (55+ park) in a Motorhome.

We stayed here for 6 nights free after looking at their Superstition Views Casitas. We had a beautiful view of Superstition Mountain. The park is very nicely laid out. We stayed in the short term area of the park. Many of the residents that we met here were very very friendly. The facilities are wonderful. The pools at Superstition Views and Canyon Vistas are beautiful! My only complaint is that the WiFi is terrible! If they could make that amenity better, it would be a excellent park.

Rate is for a FHU 50 amp back-in site on gravel with a PA discount. This is a large RV Park with many back-in sites for snowbirds. The PA sites are out front near a very busy highway with constant road noise. Other than the fact we were visiting friends, we would have stayed somewhere else.

This park now has new managers. Not like the old ones who were in the process of leaving. All trees have been trimmed (since someone had a comment). Also have new maintenance person, who along with the new managers is on top of all situations. As far as pickleball -- just tell the office when you call not to put you by there. However, all the residents are too old to play pickleball later than 8PM. the person making the comment just wanted to complain. Trash?? 95 % of trash goes in an "on site" flip top container that is picked up once per week. There are a few other large "bins" but rarely do these even contain any "wet" garbage, mostly heavy trash. Another example of someone wanting to complain! Great RESORT type park that is watched over daily by a very attentive maintenance crew! We camped at Canyon Vistas RV Resort (55+ park) in a Motorhome.

Although some listings say this park is in Apache Junction it is another 10 miles or so east of there. If you are looking to use it as a spot for Spring Training games, it is just too far for comfort. Spaces are wide with concrete pads. Cal Am charges seperately for garbage service and sewer/water service (no option to not have either service, you will pay) as well as electricity for month long stays or more. There are two dog parks, the one by the entrance near where our space was is all gravel, no grass. There is only one sign, partially covered by shrubery telling where the check-in is if the guard isn't at the entrance. Trees hang over the roadway and the check-in parking, they seem not to be concerned about trimming them. Another oddity is the cash/checks only payment policy. For large parks this seems odd. We did enjoy each space having a garbage can so no walks to the garbage. With a few minor changes this park would be a great place to just get away for a while if you were only going to the Phoenix metro area once or twice. 28 miles to Tempe city limits is a long drive. Goodyear ballpark, Peoria etc... is over an hour drive each way. We camped at Canyon Vistas RV Resort (55+ park) in a Motorhome.

We parked here in the section out front which seems to be the place for people staying a few days or a week. It would have been nice to have a picnic table in this area. We were parked right next to the garbage cans where all the residents in the area placed their garbage. It isn't that hard to place a garbage area that isn't so obtrusive. Even though it wasn't that hot, it got stinky. Amenities are nice, the gym was well equipped and people seemed friendly. Easy for us to move our big RV into the site.

Beware : There are 6 PickleBall courts that are open and in use 12 hours a day. There is NO disclosure when booking a site that the park staff and managers are placing you next to them. Very disappointed in the two managers running the RV park, who do not assist in making the situation right and defend the lack of disclosure. The park is nice but if you do not have a bicycle or golf cart to use, then you will be walking miles every day to the facilities. The park is exceptionally long and narrow. The facilities are in good shape and 24 hour use is exceptional for the gym/ exercise room. There are 2 pools in the park. The one in many of the photos is not close to many of the RV sites Again one needs a bicycle, car, or golf cart to get to it. We camped at Canyon Vistas RV Resort (55+ park) in a Motorhome.

We camped here using their fall special, so that's why the rate is so low. They do charge extra for trash, electric, sewer so depending on your electricity usage you will incur another$100+ per month. To be fair to this park, the amenities are good with heated pools, tennis courts, pickle ball courts, pool billiards, game room, computer room etc. The roads are all paved but the sites are rock with a concrete patio. The park model residents are able to do pretty much anything in regards to construction and remodeling which usually began every day at 7:00 AM and lasted all day long with hammering, sawing, concrete cutting etc. Nights were quiet. Some times power goes out and the street lights were out several days in a row. We'd stay again just because the Fall Special is good, the weather is great and this park is far enough away from the city unlike the rest of the Cal-Am parks in Phoenix.

This is a very nice, large park with lots of RV sites in addition to park models. We stayed 1 week on the Passport America rate. Wi-Fi and Verizon were excellent, roads blacktopped and sites were extra wide gravel sites with a concrete patio but no tables. The park is 10 miles from Apache Junction which has all the big city amenities available. The park hosts were very nice and we would definitely stop here again.

A Cal-Am park model resort with beautiful, clean facilities including: pool, spa, workout room, and the usual snowbird amenities. Separate camping area for transients with long concrete pad, but no tables, trees, bathrooms/showers. All the hosts and staff are friendly and helpful. Located across street from Basha’s grocery store and a couple of restaurants and fast food. Free wifi. No recycling. Great view of Superstition Mountains. Would gladly camp here again. Used Passport America for a week. We camped at Canyon Vistas RV Resort (55+ park) in a Fifth Wheel.

Stayed here with large group initially. Everything smoothly run. Rate reflects seasonal Passport America discount, after group outing. Nice pool, spa, clubhouse, dog run, and grassy walk paths. Park models, but away from RV parking. Nice covered area with tables next to pool. Nice gym and billiard rooms. Large back-in spaces with concrete and gravel pads. Paved roads good for bicycles. Across the street from large supermarket. Gated. Nice golfing and restaurant just down Highway 60. Check out Organ Stop Pizza and the weekend swap meet in Mesa. Can't think of anything needing improvement. We camped at Canyon Vistas RV Resort (55+ park) in a Motorhome.

This is a big and fairly crowded park. Good luck making reservations. We called at least 5 times and never got an answer or a returned call. When we got there the transient sites were all taken, but fortunately they could put us in one of the more permanent sites, kind of a tight 90-degree back-in. Although once we got in, there was a separate space for parking our truck, plus a concrete patio. There is a lot to do at this resort. Nice swimming pool, shuffleboard, bocci ball etc. It was a good value. Price reflects the PA rate, which is good for up to 7 days. We would probably stay here again if we had occasion to visit this area. We camped at Canyon Vistas RV Resort (55+ park) in a Fifth Wheel.
