This county park is pretty isolated, far from any amenities or stores. The location is quite pretty with the mountains, lake, and some trails for hiking. The marina seems to be a big draw for local activities, as there were speedboats zooming around (sometimes loudly) in the lake near the campground, and we also saw a gas powered parasailer.
We stayed in the Roadrunner campground, on the lake side of the campground. The sites are a little closer together than most county/state parks we've been to, and the usable space in our site was particularly small due to the steeply sloped terrain. The provided picnic table with roof/cover is very nice, but due to the location of the table's roof/cover we were unable to open our patio awning. Our site was low in the front and required several wooden boards under our front wheels to keep the leveling jacks from lifting the wheels off the ground. The park also has a very nice playground for kids. A cell phone tower is on the hill just outside the campground, so we had great Verizon LTE and AT&T 4G signals (no AT&T LTE available).
We would consider staying here again, although we prefer some other county parks in the area that have larger sites and are closer to stores/shopping. - LifeRebooted
We stayed three nights in the Roadrunner Campground at Lake Pleasant and really enjoyed it. The high desert terrain is very scenic and the lake makes for a great view. It's also very removed from any busy roads so very quiet. We came to this park after spending three nights in Mesa so the quiet almost hurt our ears! This park is very popular with local boaters. Part of our stay was on a weekend so the sites around us almost filled up. Still quiet at night though. The sites are paved, many are uneven but we were able to get level without much difficulty. We stayed on the east side of the campground at site #12 and had a partial lake view. That site had poor drainage with lots of dirt and sand on the pavement from recent rains. If I were to stay there again I would stay on the west side of the campground. There are no lake views on that side but great sunset views over a beautiful valley. Sites #60 and #61 looked fairly level and would provide great views from a MH windshield. Most people stay on the east side so it's less crowded on the west side. The reservation web site does not work with Firefox. We had to use Explorer to book online. - AKJohn
We stayed in one of the partial hookup sites in the Roadrunner Campground. Most of them have a covered picnic table, which makes it tight to back in. However, our site was a pull-through, making in and out very easy. Some leveling equipment was needed. Hookups were fine. Very strong Verizon signal; our MiFi worked excellent. There are several campgrounds within the park and dry camping (10$/night) is allowed in many areas along the shoreline of the lake. However, most of the dry camping spots are better suited for smaller RVs. If your rig is larger, go to the paved boat launch area just half a mile from Roadrunner. Some dry camping is also offered at the north end of the park. You have to check in and pay at the main entrance first, though. Pretty quiet location, just the burros can be heard. Best bet to see some is going to the north entrance in the late afternoon. Maricopa County plans to increase all fees by about 20% within the next months. We would come back anyway, but fetch a dry camp site next time. - TheSchweitzers
