Access to the park is only via Main Street and can be very tight for a big rig, we are a 40' 5er. Staff escorts you to your site. Neighbors are 8-10' on either side. Most landscaping was tall palm trees that can cause tight maneuvering. Scheduling the site was a real hassle due to staffing problems. There are over 1600 rv sites and lots of concrete. Staff was friendly. Laundry was acceptable, good value, and pretty clean. We stayed here for an rv inspection week long class but otherwise would not return. Just not our preferred type of Park. Their Internet was more than acceptable but most snowbirds had already left. The street noise on Lindsay is loud, ear plugs and sound machine necessary. We camped at Mesa Spirit RV Resort (55+ park) in a Fifth Wheel.
Centrally located to all sorts of shopping and freeways.

We were with a group of 8 rigs, both motorhomes and 5ers. We were parked together in a quiet area. Upon arrival we were escorted to our sites and later visited by the hospitality crew with maps, information and cookies. The staff was excellent helping with our needs. We used a meeting room for three nights at no extra charge. The entrance off of Main is a little tricky if you are making a right turn as there is an island just after you turn in. The guard station was not always manned. We would definitely return, especially if we had a group. We camped at Mesa Spirit RV Resort (55+ park) in a Motorhome.
The LDS church is only 3 miles away if you are interested in doing genealogy research. There are many restaurants in the area and grocery stores.

Hugh (1800 sites) RV Park in the middle of town. Easy check in, nice personnel. Even had a knock at our door with a welcoming committee. That was a first. Every activity and amenity you can image. The park was a hugh maze. Was convient for why we were in the area. Expensive for short term stays. Would stay again for a day or two.

We have stayed at this park several times over the past 10 years, including two winters as snowbirds. Facilities are still in good shape and, as others have said, there are a lot of activities. It does seem that there are more management/staff problems since the change in ownership a few years ago. I made reservations two months in advance for sites for us and a friend. They asked the size of our rigs; they said they could not get us real close together but we would not be too far apart; they gave me the site numbers. When we arrived, their computer showed we had both been moved to different sites, very far apart, and neither one was long enough to accommodate our 38 and 40 foot rigs. The clerk blamed the central corporate reservation system. After about 45 minutes and the intervention of a supervisor, they did find us spaces that were large enough. Bad part was we were along one of the streets bordering the part, where there is very loud traffic noise. The lady checking in ahead of us had a similar problem, re-assigned far from the group she was with. The clerk told her there are certain things you need to say so the reservation is coded in the computer so that the site will not be changed. She also said it is better to call the park direct rather than the central number. Of course, that is what I had done, and we still had a problem.

Reservations are a joke. It's basically first come, first served. Despite making a site specific reservation (and confirming that reservation) we were moved as far away from our large group as possible. Attitude was, too bad, so sad, we're full. Site they gave us was in a park model storage area, cigarette butts all over, open sewer next to us, and trucks, boats and cars stored on the other side. Metal sticking up out of the cracked concrete. We will be going back to Mesa, just not this park. We camped at Mesa Spirit RV Resort (55+ park) in a Fifth Wheel.
Easy access to shopping, activities are good at the park. Don't count on your reservation.

Office staff was friendly and helpful. We were guided to site R-18, and assisted with backing into the site. Park the RV on gravel with concrete patio and space for parking towed or tow vehicle. CTV, utility connections close at hand. There are many activities available within the park and some group events scheduled outside. Streets are narrow and parking is restricted (some resident don't agree). Residents vary, in attitude and friendliness, north to south and west to east. Our stay was okay,maneuvering with a big rig is problematic, we won't be returning. We camped at Mesa Spirit RV Resort (55+ park) in a Fifth Wheel.
You will find many different grocery outlets within a few minutes, any direction from the park. Fuel prices were within a penny, everywhere. The park is like a maize and even with a map is difficult to navigate.

The rate of $22 per day is based on the monthly rate we paid for 30-days between March 14-April 14, 2016. This is a huge "snowbird park" in Mesa and this was our 8th or 9th year staying in the park during spring training. The park is probably 50-50 between park models and wheeled RVs. Most of the sites are at least 40' long (gravel) with concrete patios. Toads and tow vehicles are parked on an adjacent patio extension. The vast majority of the sites are back-in with a small number of pull-thrus. Most of the pull-thru sites are asphalt with maybe half-a-dozen dirt. Each site is full hookup with 20/30/50 amp, water, sewer, cable and wifi. Electric is included in the daily/weekly rate and is metered with the monthly rate. The wifi is just ok due to the load. Satellite TV users will have a clear view of the sky. An RV may find itself parked next to another RV or a park model. Most of the sites are pretty close together although some are wider than they are deep (called 'casitas'). The park provides parking assistance due to the close quarters. The streets are paved and in good repair. The biggest rigs will have no problem navigating the turns. Each site has a mailbox and residents can have mail sent to their site. (the office says they will not accept or hold mail or packages). During our stay we had packages delivered by UPS and FedEx.
Pets are permitted but only in some areas of the park although you can walk your dog anywhere in the park. There are about half a dozen pet exercise areas most of them small but there is a huge fenced pet area in the NW corner of the park. The park has multiple pools, shower houses and laundry facilities all of which are 1st class. There is a large rec area with pool tables, card rooms and all sorts of organized activities during snowbird season. The staff and most of the seasonal/year round residents are friendly and helpful. The park is located very close to all sorts of shopping and services. We camped at Mesa Spirit RV Resort (55+ park) in a Motorhome.

Rate was based on staying more than 30 days. Electricity is charged separately. Flat, level, gravel, back in site. I was in the dog section. Each site has a concrete patio to park on. There are no tables or other services provided. WI-FI was free and the speed depended on the time of day it was used. Laundry rooms were large and clean. There are many activities available if you wish to participate. The park was relatively noisy due to sirens and traffic on surrounding roads. The park was convenient to visit spring training baseball stadiums. We camped at Mesa Spirit RV Resort (55+ park) in a Travel Trailer.
Many services: fuel, food, grocery stores, banks, camping world, shopping, and hardware stores are all within 2 miles of the park.

Stayed here because the other park was full. This park was half full because at check-in they were not friendly and park is old. We were told that nobody had used the spot they gave us for the last year. Sites were tight and the roads were hard to turn with the RV because they were tight. Condition of park was overall run down. Bathrooms were not taken care of on regular basis. We had to leave early for a family emergency and they would not give us give us a refund. We had stayed 2 nights of our 1 week reservation. Family owned RV parks will work with you if you have a emergency, not these corporate parks. And if you are stupid enough to stay here, don't go to the Friday night fish fry, it tasted like crap. Never again Encore , you will not get anymore of my money.

Rate reflects yearly 3,000 payment decided by 365 days. We required a home base for our trailer as we travelled weeks at a time. A week after we signed for the year, the owner sold to Thousand Trails and the overall experience at this 1400+ rv "resort" took a step down overall. Almost all of the "workampers" did not return for 2016 due to mgmt issues with pay and work schedules. There are two very nice pools and four hot tubs in the main clubhouse area. About every ten days the water in the park would be shut down without warning for about 30 mins or so.
Every Sat morning there is a wonderful and large craft bazar and a very popular and largely attended Bingo that same night. The main clubhouse cafe served many lunches and dinners during the week that were of good quality and reasonably priced.
There are many and very well maintained shuffle boards and about 16 immaculate pool tables at the main clubhouse. Very good wifi and cable as well. We camped at Mesa Spirit RV Resort (55+ park) in a Travel Trailer.
Very close to Costco, Safeway, and the new Chicago Cub spring training facilities.

Super nice 55+ resort park in Mesa right on Main Street that will fill with snowbirds beginning in November. Everything was designed well from each site to the entrance. Only negative is the office closed down at 4 pm and we weren't aware of that until we needed them. Everything looked brand new, newly painted, brushed, etc. Just beautiful and well done. Easily one of the top 5 parks in the country that we have camped at. We camped at Mesa Spirit RV Resort (55+ park) in a Travel Trailer.
There is a Camping World just down Main street to the west of the resort.
There is a Safeway grocery on the street immediately behind the park and you can exit the park from the rear to easily reach it.
We ate at a nearby Whataburger (great burgers) and also at Garcia's - excellent Mexican food.
This location is south and east of downtown Phoenix. You take the Hwy 60 freeway east from I-10 South to get over to this area. Very easy to reach them.

This was our third winter at the park. We stayed for five months. We look forward to spending time with the friends we've made and enjoy the activities, my wife is in chorus and I'm involved in wood carving. It is a huge park with well-maintained grounds and a friendly staff.
It was sold in 2015 and is becoming an Encore park. There is a good bit of confusion over new rules, fees etc. and the office staff was a bit overwhelmed by the change. We assume is will level out by the time we get back there next November.
Our only complaint is that the city won't allow propane delivery to motorhomes in the park, so once every winter we have to disconnect, pack up the cupboards etc. and drive around the block to get the tank filled. It is the only city we have ever stayed in that has that requirement. We camped at Mesa Spirit RV Resort (55+ park) in a Motorhome.
We enjoy hiking, kayaking and events at the local theaters and music venues. There is no shortage of things to do in the Mesa area.

We were here for 45 days in Feb. & March. We lost power 3 times and they turned off the water 5 times during that time. All of these interruptions without a word from their staff. The sites were narrow and the streets were filled with tight turns. The cable connection was 150 feet from our site and most other sites had to have cables over 100 feet to connect. The park is filled with old park models many in need of repair. Visually not a nice place to stay. 1800 sites in need of repair!!! We stayed here in a motor home.

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.
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.
