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.

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 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 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.

Huge park that was nice and quiet in mid-April when many snowbirds had left and you can use the PA rate for a week. Otherwise, $50-$75 is way too much,especially with the activities closed down. There is a pull-through row just for RVs in the back, with basic cable and strange hookup locations. Also some large premium sites for $75. Pretty hot here in April; palm trees don't give much shade. Several nice pools spaced around, though they need cleaning. New pickel ball courts and bocce ball area. Convenient location to mid-Mesa. We camped at Val Vista Village (55+ park) in a Motorhome.

This is another of Mesa's Mega parks. It caters mostly to the Snowbirds but we stayed there after most of the Snowbirds had left. The staff was very friendly and we were led to our site by one of the security people. The site was in with the park models but it was large level and had cable. The Wi-Fi was excellent and the the park was very clean. Being that it is a Snowbird park it has lots of amenities, Pool, Showers, Laundry, etc, They were all clean and well kept. We would definitely stay there again. The nightly rate is their summer rate which is the same as the Camp Club USA rate. We camped at Val Vista Village (55+ park) in a Motorhome.

Terrific park. Excellent amenities and more groups, clubs and activities than you can imagine. Nice sites with a cement patio and parking space. The rate reflects a 3 month rate. We camped at Val Vista Village (55+ park) in a Motorhome.

In defense of the park, the electric problem the previous poster commented on was originally created by the local power company losing 2 transfer stations during the extreme cold weather they had in the valley at the time. Some of the park was without power for a couple days but the management provided 3 meals a day for those without electricity. They did everything they could and the power was restored after 3 days of part of the park having no power. The management should be thanked for their efforts in such a stressful time. The nice thing was the residents checked on each other and made sure the older folks were taken care of. We have come back to this park for 8 years and will continue to come back until we are physically unable. We camped at Val Vista Village (55+ park) in a Motorhome.

After paying $500 for 12 days at check in, I was told power would be off for 2 hours for maintenance. I set up and the neighbor told me they had been without power since 8am the day before. No power over night. The next morning, I was told repairs would not be made til summer but that with conservation we would get 4-5 hours on and 4-5 hours without power. We had power on day 2 for 2 hours over lunch. That night (no power again) I asked about the 4-5 hours on. They explained that was for the park models. RVs were power hogs and could not be turned on. After 48 hours of virtually no power we left. Policy states no refunds but they told us our credit card will only be billed for 2 days, time will tell. Our neighbors had paid for a month, were told they could leave but no refund. We camped at Val Vista Village (55+ park) in a Fifth Wheel.
