Pictures posted on website are very outdated. The park is very run down and most spots are just gravel parking spaces. Water seems to be an issue as we spent 2 days without it. Sewage backed up in the bathrooms. Activity building looks like it hasn't seen any activity in years. Office looks more like a booze store. WiFi is sporadic at best. Dog feces can be found all over the park. Laundry room had mostly out of order machines. We camped at Wild West Ranch and RV Resort (formerly John Wayne RV Ranch) in a Motorhome.

We had a one month reservation but did not end up staying for several reasons. 1. Upon arrival, they were completely unaware of our reservation which had been made 3 months prior (they took a $100 deposit) and told us they were fully booked. 2. Site they had advised was allocated to us was unavailable. 3. We felt very uncomfortable at the state of the part and the tenants. We planned to leave our RV for 10 days while we flew to CO to visit family but did not feel confident the RV would be safe. 4. We left after 2o minutes and did not stay at all. Manager had disappeared so we left a voicemail to arrange a refund as they were unable to deliver on promised reservation. Our emails and phone calls were ignored for a week so I filed a disputed claim with my bank. Manager falsely state to bank that we we "stayed overnight and used $30 of services" - an utter lie. I also discovered later that a previous reservation we had made 6 months earlier but had to cancel due to travel plans was not refunded the promised $100, despite advice it had been credited (the booking was cancelled 4 months prior to scheduled arrival date). So they had $200 from us and we never stayed a night. $100 was eventually refunded and the other $100 was not. I have found similar reviews by other RVers on other review sites so sadly, this is not an isolated incident. While we understand mistakes and miscommunications do happen and I wanted to give them the benefit of the doubt, this is clearly a case of blatant dishonesty, poor service and unethical business practice. On the bright side, in 3 years of RVing full-time, this is the first and only experience we have had like this so fortunately, most RV park owners are decent people running a good honest business. Sadly, Wild West RV Ranch is not one of them. We camped at Wild West Ranch and RV Resort (formerly John Wayne RV Ranch) in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

Avoid this RV park unless you are desperate and no other options. Avoid paying any deposit or giving any $ in advance - if you need to cancel or change your reservation - or even if they mess up or lose your reservation - you will not see your money again. Even if they promised you a refund, good luck getting it back.

Too much dust and way too close to a cattle feed lot. We did an over night and left early. Those who liked this park because it is cheap would not sway my decision to never stay here again. In addition they charged a dollar more that advertised in the book. We camped at Wild West Ranch and RV Resort (formerly John Wayne RV Ranch) in a Motorhome.

It was a big dust bowl. The area smelled like cattle. We didn't feel safe. Someone came to our coach and begged for money or food. I can't believe Passport America would even have them in their club. We camped at Wild West Ranch and RV Resort (formerly John Wayne RV Ranch) in a Motorhome.

Passport America park. Dust bowl. Looked very run down. Didn't feel safe there even in the daylight. We prepaid our reservation but gave it up cause we didn't get a good feeling about this place. No one at the office. Notes everywhere leaving instructions. This park is just down the road from a huge feedlot. Very smelly! Went into Casa Grande to a wonderful park with all amenities!!! We camped at Wild West Ranch and RV Resort (formerly John Wayne RV Ranch) in a Motorhome.
