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.
Shopping close by.

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.
Great things to do in and around Mesa from horse back riding, jeep tours of the desert, grand canyon trips and dining.

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. We camped at Val Vista Village (55+ park) in a Fifth Wheel.

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.

This is a fantastic park and the people are very friendly. This is a Cal-Am Resort. This resort has impressed us so much that we are now looking for other Cal-Am Resorts to stay at. We used our Passport America 50% discount for our stay. There are so many things to do here that you can't say you’re bored with nothing to do. If you’re in need of some separation then hubby can do his thing and the wife can do her thing. We camped at Val Vista Village (55+ park) in a Fifth Wheel.

This is a really nice park. I would have given the park a 10 if it weren't for the strict rules around dogs. Dogs are not allowed to relieve themselves anywhere other than the dog parks which is okay as long as you are close to the dog park. The dog park near our site was very nice and clean. The other rule which we found odd is that dogs are not even allowed to walk on a lot of the streets. Having said that we liked everything else about this park. Staff were extremely nice and accommodating. There were several pools and hot tubs in different sections of the park so there is not far to walk to reach one. The hot tub I visited had enough room for about 12 people. The park was immaculate and the landscaping was very nice. Streets were paved with curbs and every site other than the pull throughs had an orange tree planted in front of it. The park consists of mostly newer park models with a few older ones sprinkled in which are probably left over from the previous management. Some of the streets are kind of narrow with tight corners which makes it difficult to maneuver a larger RV but we were guided to our site through the larger streets by staff. We had a pull through which was easy to get into but the back in sites looked like they would be challenging as they were not very wide. One of the other things we liked about this park is that it was extremely peaceful and quiet at night. It was a refreshing change from other parks we had visited. We only stayed one night as we were on our way to California, however, Mesa seems like a really nice place to stay for the winter so we might be back next year. We camped at Val Vista Village (55+ park) in a Motorhome.

This reflects the 3 1/2 month pre-season rate of $700. We really enjoyed this park: it was clean, well-managed and maintained, had every activity you could imagine (even pre-season), had entertainment about 3 times in the main patio, had special areas for those with pets, had weekly meetings with donuts and coffee, had 3 pools, new tennis courts, 3 shuffleboard areas, pickleball courts, miniature golf, dances, holiday dinners and many other activities. We will definitely return next year. We camped at Val Vista Village (55+ park) in a Motorhome.

We paid 1/2 of the daily rate while there for 2 weeks this spring. The snow birds had gone home and the park was virtually devoid of life. The empty park models and facilities really showed their age without all the activities going on. We have stayed here during the winter season and you just don't notice those things when there is a lot going on. The park is doing some upgrades on the facilities and working to make it a better park. In reality, it is old and the old homes are dragging it down in my opinion. In the future, we will be looking at the newer parks in the area. The people are very friendly here. Dogs are welcome as long as they stay in the pet section. The central part of the park is a no pet zone, which limits the area you can walk in. The "dog parks" are small fenced areas which are not nearly big enough for all the dogs that utilize the facilities. The dog parks were quite smelly the winter we stayed. I never saw them being sanitized, but maybe they are. It is an OK park and one of the cheaper Cal-Am parks in the area. We camped at Val Vista Village (55+ park) in a Motorhome.
