This is a huge park but it is well cared for and the sites are adequate. We stayed here because of the need of a repair to our tow vehicle and waiting for the part. Of course at this time of year the park was less than half full! But the office staff was were very pleasant to deal with. Our only problem was getting lost trying to find the exit! Took awhile to figure things out. Lots of amenities at this park for the winter visitors and beautiful facilities. We would stay here again. Our rate was the weekly rate. We camped at Val Vista Village (55+ park) in a Fifth Wheel.

We have stayed in Val Vista for the last 5 years from Sept - Dec. 31. WE have always enjoyed it. Firstly the sites are level and many have concrete pads for the whole site. However the sewers are placed so that they are under the rear end of our motor home, the streets are a bit narrow so it is difficult to park (and our RV is only 35') and the sites are close. On the other hand, it is a full resort with 3 pools, tennis courts, pickle ball courts, miniature golf, horseshoes, shuffleboard, a very new complete exercise facility, a large library and tons of activities. Happy hour every afternoon with live music. Hiking clubs, card club, a huge fabric center, woodworking, stained glass, you name it, they probably have this activity. The fall special this year was $600 for Sept - Dec. 31. We camped at Val Vista Village (55+ park) in a Motorhome.

This was our very first week in our motor home, and we lucked out! I had been desperate to find a place with availability in the middle of snowbird season in the middle of Phoenix as a couple under 55! When Val Vista Villages called regarding our online reservation request, the kind lady forgot to ask our ages. When we arrived (that same day), they realized their mistake but were over the age-requirement capacity and let us stay. The amenities are incredible; and we used the pool, hot tub, game meet ups, and gas fire frequently. The street we stayed on was full of friendly people and pets. Our dogs really loved the socializing at the nearby pet run. There's plenty to do in a very nice community. We camped at Val Vista Village (55+ park) in a Motorhome.

Well maintained park with lots of activities. RV sites are wedged between park models which means very little in the way of air circulation and absolutely no view from any side of your unit. Sites have gravel pads with concrete patios (nice) until you try to back in. The sewer hookup and power pedestal are completely different from any park ever visited. The largest problem is the very narrow street. Backing in was by far the most difficult we have ever done. The layout of the site (concrete, sewer) combined with the narrow street makes it extremely difficult. Add to that the neighbor across the narrow street thinks his truck should be parked in the street making it difficult to enter and exit our site once we are situated. During our stay we had multiple near accidents on the streets entering and leaving the park. People stand in the middle of the street not paying attention, drive their golf carts with no regard for safe driving practices and don't seem to have a foggy clue that dually pickups require a little more room to maneuver than their golf cart. On numerous occasions visits to the laundry room in the truck required exceptional maneuvering since wood carvers parked their golf carts in full vehicle spots occupying way too much of the limited parking availability. Additionally about once each week some type of water emergency occurs and you are without water with no explanation or fore warning. Thankfully we try to keep some water in our fresh water tank. We camped at Val Vista Village (55+ park) in a Fifth Wheel.

When we arrived on a Sunday the gate attendant told us we would have to wait for about 40 minutes before he could get someone to escort us to our site. It actually only took only 15 minutes to get someone to us. After backing into our very tight site it took a while to get leveled since the site was slopped to the front and to the left side. We were told we had to park our towd on the patio but if we had slides on that side we could not have parked there. This is a resort with all the amenities your would expect in a park in the Mesa area and our Passport America membership rate made this park affordable. Strong Verizon 4g service and line of site to the south for a satellite signal is good in all the sites we saw. The park's WiFi is free but very, very slow and we couldn't connect at most times of the day. We would stay again. We camped at Val Vista Village (55+ park) in a Motorhome.

The bad: This is not an RV Park. Rather, it is over a thousand cramped and crowded Park Model Trailer spots, jammed into narrow streets, with a very very few 'RV' spots (which go for a high premium.). The good: Once you do get in, the park facility itself is very nice, with a huge number activities to enjoy. Our experience: The park is normally full with long term winter guests, but we arrived in mid-April. Non-full time guests are tolerated, and the staff in general are not particularly friendly. Receiving our name badges after a lengthy checkin (name badges!?), we were guided to our spot by a Ranger who did nothing to assist, other than to watch and talk with passersby. If you are in an RV, and given one of the back ins that are normally assigned to the Park Models like we were, be prepared for long electric cable runs to the rear of the spots, and sewer drains literally in the middle rear of the drive, as opposed to on the left or service side of a real RV site. The dog runs are nice and grassy, but can be a very long walk. The power went out for unexplained reasons one afternoon, and did not return until the next day. The WiFi went out at the same time, and never did recover. Prior to the power outage, WiFi was adequate but very very slow (0.4 Mbps up.). No cable TV was offered or available. We scanned about 30 digital OTA channels. We camped at Val Vista Village (55+ park) in a Travel Trailer.

This is a very large park which has mostly small mobile homes. We apparently arrived after the season, as their grill and bar were closed for the summer. It has a beautiful pool area with spa (hot tub) outside and another indoor pool with a huge spa (hot tub) inside. Lots of tables, chairs, couches, umbrellas. There is a billiard room with several tables. An enormous laundry room. Lots of craft type areas (some of which were closed). It is close to shopping. The site itself was nothing special, just a slab and sand/dirt. We camped at Val Vista Village (55+ park) in a Motorhome.

We have travelled the US from Maine to Florida and then across to California and now heading back the same way. Of the 20+ RV Campgrounds this is by far the best. Great entertainment daily, live music, events and several pools and hot tubs. There is a restaurant and bar and easy access to town. Concrete pad for RV and parking. We camped at Val Vista Village (55+ park) in a Travel Trailer.

This is a mega park with thousands of park models and RVs. We were there after most snowbirds had left so it was not crowded; however, I can imagine in the winter it is a nightmare with all the parks in the area full to the brim at one time. The traffic in mesa was busy even in this off season. The roads are tight, and when crowded I cannot imagine how they get everyone checked in. We found that our rig barely fit off the road into the one spot available for check in. We had a guide take us to the spot but it was impossible to get into that site with a tree there so we had to move next door, even still had to dodge a park model and sign post across street to back it in. The facilities are very nice once you are there. They have several pools and a very nice Grassy dog run at the back of the park. All utilities worked fine and the folks we met who live there were very very nice. Our biggest issue was probably at check in. After a weary day of driving, it took forever! We had to give them information for a 3 night stay that we have never given out any other place - example Vin number, emergency contacts, and the such. They also had a place to give the lender name and phone number, if you financed your rig, but I refused to put in some of that information for a 3 night stay! Was told the state requires that now. Crazy! Long term, this might be a great place to stay, not sure I would jump through all those hoops for a day or 2. We camped at Val Vista Village (55+ park) in a Fifth Wheel.

Friendly people, we only stayed here because we were flying out for the family Christmas visit and needed somewhere to park our rig and have our pet sitter come in. It's clean, but one of those mega RV parks with 1000's of RVs, sites were close together, way closer than we like. Clean laundry facilities, but needed a card to operate that you can only get from an office. We camped at Val Vista Village (55+ park) in a Fifth Wheel.

Huge park with hundreds of park models. Our site was fairly level with OK hookups. Had to dig around sewer connection because they have them horizontal below the surface of the ground. I don't get it. Price reflects Passport America discount. We camped at Val Vista Village (55+ park) in a Motorhome.

Very nice park. Has all the amenities. Escort to site and help getting parked. Some spots are tighter than others. Big rig friendly. The first week was Passport America at half price for the week. No cable TV, that costs extra. The Internet ranges from good to nothing depending on where they park you. I used my Verizon card, which worked well. We stayed 2 weeks and had to move once, but we extended the extra week. Very friendly park. Lunch at the pool was always under $20.00 with tip. Good food. This is our 3rd time here. We will come back and stay here again. We camped at Val Vista Village (55+ park) in a Motorhome.

A very nice campground. Lots of activities are offered. Easy to get around in, but when backing in the folks that will guide you to the site will not spot you. Seems that they once had a problem with a guest and no longer will help to back you in. The pool is great during these 100 plus temps. Everyone of the hosts are very friendly and knowledgeable about the area. I would and will continue to recommend this campground to others.

Huge park with lots of park models. We have two dogs and were lucky to get a site that backed up to a grassy area. Site was good size, Wi-Fi was fine. It is definitely showing its age. Electric went down twice. They did fix it quickly though. The water shut off one time, but they got it back up right away. Lots of activities. Not really my kind of park since it is in the middle of the city but lots of our friends love this type of park. We camped at Val Vista Village (55+ park) in a Fifth Wheel.
