This is a nice park. We stayed here for just a couple of days. Great laundry room and showers and restrooms were clean. Lots of desert to let your dog run. A lot semi-permanent RV's here that are working in the area and they leave for work early in the morning. No frills but relaxing. We camped at Wild West Ranch and RV Resort (formerly John Wayne RV Ranch) in a Travel Trailer.

Sites are fairly level, easy entry/exit, PA rate, facilities worked well, Wifi is weak/slow, Virgin mifi weak/slow, friendly check in. We stayed here last year and would stay here again. We camped at Wild West Ranch and RV Resort (formerly John Wayne RV Ranch) in a Fifth Wheel.

A nice park with gravel roads and extra-wide sites in a desert setting with some trees. Wi-Fi and Verizon were excellent and there is a nice laundry. We received all of the TV antenna stations from Phoenix. The camp hosts were very friendly. It is less than 20 miles to Maricopa or Casa Grande. We stayed two weeks and would definitely stay here again. We camped at Wild West Ranch and RV Resort (formerly John Wayne RV Ranch) in a Motorhome.

I called about two months ahead of time to make a reservation. The office lady asked me if I needed wireless internet connection. I said yes and she said she would put me in a site that would be able to get it. When we finally arrived, she remembered our phone conversation and had saved a space right by the office. Good connection. The next day we went to visit "Rawhide," and it was about 90 degrees outside, and we had to leave our two small dogs in our RV. I was concerned leaving them in case the electricity got turned off for any reason. I asked the office manager to keep an eye on our RV and check a few times to make sure the air conditioner was still on. When we got back all was well. She came over and told me she checked our RV a number of times. I couldn't ask for any better service than that. Location is good; lots of room for RV and car in tow. I would come back here again if I am in the area. We camped at Wild West Ranch and RV Resort (formerly John Wayne RV Ranch) in a Motorhome.

If you want to avoid the mega sites of Casa Grande where you're just a number and there to make profit for them - you should consider this campground. It's within easy reach of Casa and Maricopa, close to local small grocery stores and restaurants, but right in the desert with amazing sunsets, peace and quiet. The staff here are really friendly and once again, staff attitude proved to be a winner and helped make this dusty basic campground into a special destination. We camped at Wild West Ranch and RV Resort (formerly John Wayne RV Ranch) in a Fifth Wheel.

Staff are very friendly, sites are level, unpaved and reasonably wide. Park is quiet. Services worked fine. Wi-Fi is free, fast when it works, but very sporadic. Virgin mobile MiFi worked well, good cell service. Price reflects Passport America rate. We would stay here again.

Passport America rate. Nice campground with nice wide, long spots out in the desert, about 19 miles from Casa Grande. Yes, the feed lots are about 2 miles up the road, but we had no problem with any smells from them. I guess if the wind is blowing the wrong way, one might smell them, but since most winds go west to east, that shouldn't happen often. We don't need a pool or a playground so this campground fit us just fine. Didn't use the laundry but checked it out and it's immaculate. People (campers and workers) were very friendly. Casa Grande is a nice sized city with everything you could want. I wish we had gone to Maricopa but we weren't in the area long enough. We do intend on coming back on our trip east. We camped at Wild West Ranch and RV Resort (formerly John Wayne RV Ranch) in a Fifth Wheel.

Passport America rate. Large park, all gravel although some sites have cement patio pads. Spaces are pretty large. No picnic tables or fire pits. Very much out in the middle of the desert. Ten miles from Maricopa. Close to a road, could be dusty if the wind blows (which I am told it does often). Clean laundry facilities. We camped at Wild West Ranch and RV Resort (formerly John Wayne RV Ranch) in a Fifth Wheel.

Good Sam rate. Very nice and clean park with friendly people. The sites were very large and unpaved, but groomed and even. Wi-Fi was excellent. No permanent people. Clean laundry. We ended up staying for a week, it was so pleasant. We will be back! We camped at Wild West Ranch and RV Resort (formerly John Wayne RV Ranch) in a Motorhome.

We stayed here for a week while home hunting in Maricopa. Basic park but lacks a pool. Has very good Wi-Fi. $15 per night with Passport America. And yes, at times the aroma from the cow farm will make your eyes water. We camped at Wild West Ranch and RV Resort (formerly John Wayne RV Ranch) in a Fifth Wheel.

This is a good park, can get a feedlot smell sometimes. Stayed 5 days, would go back. Laundry, Wi-Fi, phone service, in the country, dirt streets and yards. Passport rate even in winter. Not the fanciest park, but good value for the $. We camped at Wild West Ranch and RV Resort (formerly John Wayne RV Ranch) in a Fifth Wheel.

Loved this place! We stayed here a week on PA for just over $100. It was extremely pleasant with very large, even pull through lots. Nice and quiet, yet close enough drive to Phoenix, Maricopa, Casa Grande. We attended a pot luck dinner which had fantastic entertainment and music. We will be back next year, and for longer! The Wi-Fi was fast and efficient. There is a cattle lot about 10 miles away, but that didn't affect us or the air at all. The previous reviewer must have been a devout vegetarian, or the competition, shame. We camped at Wild West Ranch and RV Resort (formerly John Wayne RV Ranch) in a Motorhome.

Price reflects PA discount. Stayed here only two nights, thank goodness. The management was very friendly and helpful. However, there are cattle feedlots on the road to Casa Grande. Not only was it a disturbing site; the stench of cow manure and urine was overpowering at the park. Perhaps the other reviewers had more favorable winds during their stay. The Wi-Fi was very unreliable, as was the cell phone signal. This is an older park that they are attempting to spruce up. The water pressure was good. Our site had some branches rubbing against our rig. Some nice man came right over and trimmed them without being asked. The sites are large and level. While they seem to be trying hard to improve the place, I don't know what can be done about the smell. We would not stay here again.

This campground is a bit out of the way and is under new ownership who is working hard to improve the park. The owners and other campground personnel were very friendly. The campground was quiet, clean, and spacious. We stayed for 2 weeks using our Passport America discount the entire stay. Wi-Fi was excellent. It is about 10 miles from a major casino and there are cow farms in the area (some mornings, there was a slight cow odor but not unbearable). It is about 18 miles west of Casa Grande but an easy drive. We'd recommend this campground if you are traveling on I10 or I8 near Casa Grande. We camped at Wild West Ranch and RV Resort (formerly John Wayne RV Ranch) in a Motorhome.

Loved this park! The manager was super nice and fun to talk to. The park is very quiet at night, and we did not notice any smell from the cows a few miles down the road. It was nice to be out in the quiet desert, seeing all the stars in the sky! The lots are very large and even. Free Wi-Fi and very clean bathrooms and the new laundry machines were great! We will definitely be back. We camped at Wild West Ranch and RV Resort (formerly John Wayne RV Ranch) in a Motorhome.
