The price is much less if you stay for a month or more. We are here for 6 months. We love it, the folks are friendly and the grounds are beautiful. The park is complicated until you have been here awhile and the spaces are difficult to get into but there is an assistant. We love the dozens of activities, cards, pools, closeness to everything, dog areas, people, etc. We will return for the beautiful winters here in Arizona. We camped at Mesa Spirit RV Resort (55+ park) in a Fifth Wheel.

Tips for other Campers:

Walking distance to Safeway, USPO, bike or walking trail on canals, pharmacy, etc. It is inner city/town so noise from sirens, etc.

This was our first time at this resort. The experience has been quite positive. It has everything and everything is perfectly maintained. The pitches are spacious and comfortable. Ideal for a stay of several weeks or months. A little pricey if you're just a few days. Even being in Arizona itself surprised us that the office staff did not speak any Spanish. We are from Spain, but still everything was well. There are activities all day and all directed to the type of client there: active adults over 55 years and retired. The pools are in perfect condition, with ideal temperatures. We would stay here again. We camped at Mesa Spirit RV Resort (55+ park) in a Motorhome.

We stayed here 2 months in November and December 2014. All paved roads, big rig access, 3 pools and I think 4 hot tubs.

Pools/hot tubs sparkled. Many activities offered. All sites have their own mailbox along with a lemon, orange or grapefruit tree. WiFi worked well. Grounds are well taken care of. Shopping, restaurants close by. Would stay here again. The nightly rate is approximate as they were running a Special...3 months for $695.00! We were there for 2 months. We camped at Mesa Spirit RV Resort (55+ park) in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

Safeway grocery, K-Mart, Big Lots are within easy walking distance.

Huge park...you sort of feel like you are in a maze. It was like a ghost town the few days we were there and was very quiet, but I imagine it would be hopping during the "season" when the snowbirds show up. It's not really set up for transients, though there is plenty of room for them during the off season. The office was closed when we showed up at 4:30, but an employee found us a spot we could fit in. Fantastic pool area - two large swimming pools and four "therapy" pools ranging from cool to hot. The pools appear to be open very late, which is nice. Huge clean very reasonably-priced laundry with a large outdoor area for hanging clothes. Bathrooms were very clean. It looks like there is a billiards room and other social areas. Convenient to highways and shopping. Cable and Wi-Fi worked OK. The power pedestal was pretty old but power was adequate and we didn't have any problems. They offer trash pickup only once a week and I couldn't find a trash dumpster. No shade; landscaping consists of palm trees and cacti, and with all that paving it was really hot in September. Sites are gravel with paved patio areas/parking. No picnic tables. Park is kept very neat and clean. We camped at Mesa Spirit RV Resort (55+ park) in a Fifth Wheel.

Passport America rate. Big park, 1800 sites. Multiple dog parks. Prime snowbird destination it seems. Very clean. Easy check in. Everything saw was first class. Quiet at night. We camped at Mesa Spirit RV Resort (55+ park) in a Fifth Wheel.

This was a short 4 night stop for us. We had chosen this due to positive comments in the past but see much lower ratings recently. We made our reservation online and there was some confusion at check in about whether we had paid but that got resolved quickly. The fact that there are separate systems that don't talk seems archaic to me but I do understand the cost to move to a modern setup. We were not given the walk through gate code and would have checked on that if we were going to be here longer. The site met our needs and was close to three dog parks which are just gravel/dirt but kept nice and clean. There are permanent residents near us who are very friendly and most here are cordial. The Wi-Fi is provided by Dish and works very well. Trash is picked up on Fridays which didn't work for us and disposal was a bit tricky to find. There are a lot of older park models along with plenty of empty RV spots. We expect that is true at most of these places from what we could see while driving around. We plan to return to the area next year for two weeks and will stay here again. We camped at Mesa Spirit RV Resort (55+ park) in a Motorhome.

A giant park with its own park map. Concrete and gravel sites. FHU 50 amp worked perfectly. Outside staff very friendly but it seemed one clerk was having a bad week. We stayed five days til our reserved park had an opening. We were across from the pickle ball court and the pings all day were interesting. The gym was very functional, and the fenced dog areas were very close. They also have no pet areas in the park. Lots of activities. We camped at Mesa Spirit RV Resort (55+ park) in a Motorhome.

Reservations are very poor. They confirmed our site the day before, but when we arrived it was full. Office wasn't open when we arrived just before 4 pm on a Saturday. Put us in a non-pet site and we have 2 dogs. Quickly found out that some of the full time residents aren't overly friendly, some are actually down right rude. Sites are too short for big rigs - we are 41' 5er and we hung over the back and the nose was at the edge of the road. Roads are paved, but are rather narrow for big rigs with long bed CC trucks. Services are conveniently located and are good. Lots of cable channels. Sites are gravel for the rig and a concrete patio and separate pad for the truck. This is an older park and it is looking its age. Tried one of the mega parks, but won't return to this one. We camped at Mesa Spirit RV Resort (55+ park) in a Fifth Wheel.

Rate is based on a monthly rate. Poor first impression, our assigned site had been filled and in talking to others this is common. The reservations are a joke. It is also noisy with construction machinery starting at 0700 a few mornings. This is an old park that is definitely showing its age. Has lots of older park models. The premium sites are plenty wide, but not long enough for big rigs. Services are good and include cable TV. Interior roads are paved and in good condition. Could be wider to facilitate big rigs. The locals are not overly friendly, and lots of them are not dog friendly, even just walking the dogs on the street. Lots of activities, but none of interest to us and mostly scheduled in the morning. Won't be back to this one. We camped at Mesa Spirit RV Resort (55+ park) in a Fifth Wheel.

We stayed for 3 months and had a great time. The activities were many, but only during the peak of the season. After April, the place is a ghost town. The wifi was a joke, and the activities staff were a little stand-off-ish, but overall we had a great stay We camped at Mesa Spirit RV Resort (55+ park) in a Travel Trailer.

This was our 5th year and our last. They absolutely refuse to enforce the leash rules for pets. Our cat, on her leash for evening walk, was attacked by 2 non-leashed 80# lbs. Their owner yelled at us for walking down the street with our cat! Reported to management and they refused to do anything about it. Several people reported having their animals attacked by off-leashed dogs and nothing was done. Also had vagrants wandering through park. They cleaned out a lot of old park models, if you do not have a pet, those area would be nice. If you have a pet, this is not a place to be.

What a great place to spend the winter! The multitude of activities is absolutely unbelievable. I especially enjoyed the stained glass and fused glass classes. The instructors are so helpful (and patient). The glass shop has everything you could possibly need. The pools are very nice and quite warm which is great on days in the 60's. Close to everything you could possibly want. We camped at Mesa Spirit RV Resort (55+ park) in a Fifth Wheel.

We stayed here 3 nights. The rate reflects Passport America which they will accept for only 3 nights. I guess for this rate, they pretty much give you the noisiest sites. We had one that backed up against a very busy street. The traffic and sirens were pretty much non-stop. It is a park that caters to seniors and has a lot of activities for snowbirds and permanent residents. They are somewhat dog friendly, and put paw prints on the roads that dogs are allowed to walk through. If we had paid the full price, it would be extremely overpriced for a daily rental site. We would probably find another park next time in not such a busy area. The streets in the park are extremely confusing and the main road in is very easy to miss.

The week I spent at Spirit was very pleasing. As part of a NRVIA training seminar, I was up at dawn and in the class room by 7. Day ended about 5 and then there was time to see what the park had to offer. The location is handy to mega stores and many RV service outfits (if needed). A mixed park with park models and every imaginable RV combinations, all set in spots for easy access. The hot tubs were a big bonus for my old bones and a three day café at lunch time put most diners to shame with the staff, quality and variety of food and prices from the 60s! The park staff were always available to respond to questions, provided excellent meeting area with great coffee that kept us going through the day. The overall park is clean, home to many so you don't get the "trash and dash" feeling of some places we have stayed (once). With their accepting several discount memberships, I do not think there is a better deal in the area for short or long stays. We camped at Mesa Spirit RV Resort (55+ park) in a Motorhome.

We attended this park while having some RV work done at a dealership nearby. Access to the park can be a challenge as the entrance way is not very visible and we drove by the entrance the first time we tried to locate the park. Once you locate the entrance there is a long drive way which takes you into the park and it easily accommodates big rigs. Internal roads are fine and also accommodate big rigs. On arriving we found the staff very friendly and we were guided to our site. The park is an older park and management has combined 2 of the original sites to allow modern RV's to have sufficient space. This is a good idea but the hookup connections are now somewhat awkward depending on the location of your RV hookups so be prepared to have longer hoses and cables then what you may expect. Our site was fully paved. The park is older and despite the number of sites there was only 2 pools which could be an issue if the park was full. It was not in Oct and the pools were not crowded. Bathrooms and showers which we saw were very nice. 50 channels of cable tv was free but WiFi at the site was not available without arranging for a provider at an additional cost. The park does offer free WiFi hotspots at the pool and office and while we were there the signal was very good. There appears to be lots of activities for winter guests. Daily rate was rather high for this time of year. A AAA/Good Same Discount reduced our fee by 10%. I felt the park was overpriced for this time of year. We camped at Mesa Spirit RV Resort (55+ park) in a Motorhome.
