Our first couple of days here were great, other then the hookups being on both sides of the RV. We were place by the pool near the office and everything else. We were really enjoying our stay here. Then 2 days later it started every morning around 6:30 am the maintenance workers were by the pool wall talking very loud, I guess drinking coffee. It got to a point where we had to ask them to keep it down. They told us "we did not think anyone was there, that all the rv's were in storage, we will keep it down" The next morning a Saturday by the way, they were at it again talking very loud.

Then we got to walking around for exercise. The people around the RV's were very friendly, but those who are in the permanent type trailers turned away when you walked by them. I actually felt discriminated against because we were not living there.

The office staff were very kind and helpful always smiling. I would recommend people coming here as it is nice. But ask to be place in the RV areas on either side of the Resort. If they want to place you by the pool and you like to sleep late do not bother staying here. We camped at Apache Wells RV Resort (55+ park) in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

Driving a mile or so from here is all the shopping area's for grocery etc. All your main roads are 4 or more lanes. Not much traffic when we were here due to the snowbirds having left for the summer.

This is basically a mobilehome park with some RV spaces available that are squeezed in between permanent homes. But, the amenities are fantastic. There are a lot of activities especially outdoors. Everything is neat and clean and just beautiful. It has to be one of the friendliest parks we have been in. Everyone is so happy and helpful. Even though we only stayed a few day, we were invited to a block party. And of course, there is every kind of restaurant or store nearby so everything is within a short distance. We will return. We camped at Apache Wells RV Resort (55+ park) in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

Had an excellent dinner at Joe's Asian Diner nearby.

We have stayed here many times while visiting friends. It is made up predomintly of modular units, with a few scattered open lots. It has everything you need, water, sewer, 50 amp electric. Sites are average size, with slab patios but no tables. Lots of activities going on during the winter/spring season in Mesa. Was told by the office that for next season (Jan, Feb, March 2016) they would be taking reservations for the month only. This will limit those of us who are looking for a short stay. So call in advance to check it out if you are interested. We camped at Apache Wells RV Resort (55+ park) in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

Was a good location to attend some of the baseball spring training games.

Our nightly rate is based on a week's stay (we are not 55+ but for short stays they allow couples with no kids). This park is almost entirely retirement/snow-bird park models, with a couple rows at the end of the park for RVs. Each site is gravel with a concrete patio. The sites are pretty tight, and tow cars get parked next to the patio. Our hookups were behind the site and on the wrong side, which made our water hookup difficult. The staff was friendly, but quite a lot of the residents completely ignored us--we often felt like "outsiders" who didn't belong.

Our main issue with the park is that they claim to be "dog friendly" (essential for us) but that turned out to be not accurate. You are allowed to have dogs, but the friendliness ends there. There is a tiny fenced dog area in one corner of the park (with a small strip of grass) which is the ONLY place dogs are allowed to relieve themselves. Every time we took our dogs out we needed to get them to the dog area in the corner without letting them urinate along the way. We saw residents with small dogs carry them to the dog area, and with big dogs drive them there. We would happily walk our dogs outside the park grounds but the entire RV Park is walled in with the main entrance (far from the RV section) being the only way in our out. Once our 12+ year old dog urinated on the gravel near the entrance (no plants nearby) and within 5 seconds someone came over to tell us it's not allowed. Having been to many truly dog friendly RV parks, I would not recommend Apache Wells to anyone with a dog.

The RV park is great for active seniors, there's a very large community area, it's clean, and there are a lot of activities. It is an obviously popular park since it was near capacity while we were there. Unfortunately those types of amenities are not what is important to us. We camped at Apache Wells RV Resort (55+ park) in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

There is a fantastic and huge city-run dog park (Quail Run) a few miles away from the RV park. Once we discovered it, we drove our dogs there once or twice a day.

This is a long term park with several park models. The RV sites are among the park models. They have one end that is mostly RV's. The RV sites have good width and length for large RV's but the roads are narrow making it a sharp turn to get in to the spot. The park is not really an overnight type park. The rates are structured for a week and more. The park is a smaller one and more of a community. It has all the amenities that one would expect in a long term park. It is quite and peaceful. The park managers are very friendly and wanted to make our stay a pleasant one. The other staff and guests were also very friendly. We were welcome even though we were there only a few days. We would return to the park if we are going to stay in the area for any length of time. We camped at Apache Wells RV Resort (55+ park) in a Fifth Wheel.

Previous review was wrong, this is a NOT a large park. Actually the smallest in Cal-Am. Only 300+ sites, not like the Mesa monsters with 1000+ . So facilities are smaller size, only 3 showers, etc., and all the park model people/ regulars have their cliques. Residents behind us walked right through our site, on the patio next to our rig, several times: til we came out and asked them not to. Best idea is to stay here on PA ($19.50 plus tax). It's in a quiet area, car needed to shop anywhere. Hookups at our site were on the wrong side. Water quality foul. We camped at Apache Wells RV Resort (55+ park) in a Motorhome.

Could use more signs to find the park. Very large retirement park with mostly mobile homes. Has a very nice check-in person. Has many activities and the best laundry I have been in for months. Seems to be more of a winter community for seniors. We went here to visit family. There are so many parks in the area, that I think we will try another park the next time.

This is a great resort. It takes PA and is a destination resort with many activities. We will stay here again. We camped at Apache Wells RV Resort (55+ park) in a Fifth Wheel.

This is one of Cal-Am’s smaller resorts in Mesa and is strongly marketed to long term tenants. You must be 55 or older to stay here. The parks look pretty boring, with park models and RVs stacked in by the hundreds and with little grass to break up the miles of gravel and concrete. But that said, everything in the park was clean and well cared for. There is an escort to your site, a large pool and whirlpool, 8 shuffleboard courts and an active center with a lot going on. Each site gets a garbage can that is picked up twice a week and everything works. We stayed for 5 nights with a Camp Club USA discount that only cost us $17.50 per night. We would definitely stay here again. We camped at Apache Wells RV Resort (55+ park) in a Motorhome.
