We just stayed here for a week with two other friends and their coaches. This is "our" kind of RV campground. Quiet. Very large sites. Good outdoor eating area. A view from our coach. Beautiful sunsets.
I would rate this a 10 if we had had a sewer hook up. From what I could tell there were very few sites with sewer.
This is a county park on a large lake north of Phoenix. I was mostly full the first days we where there as it was spring break for kids. After that it was about 1/3 full. We used this as a home base to go to pre-season baseball. If you like peace and quiet this is a great park to do that. If you want to be closer to the action and shopping I would suggest getting closer. It is about a 20 minute drive to a market from here.
On the way to Phoenix one morning my wife spotted a heard of wild burros about a mile outside the RV park entrance. We had seen the signs on the road indicating they were in the area, but then got lucky and saw a group of about ten of them. This RV park is also prime habitat for saguaro cactus. There are thousands of them in the park and around it. Very nice spring wildflowers. We camped at Lake Pleasant Regional Park in a Motorhome.
We visited the Scottsdale musical instrument museum when were were here. One of the best places to spend a couple hours we have been to in quite a while.

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. We camped at Lake Pleasant Regional Park in a Motorhome.
Firewood here is $7 for a very small bundle, and the nearest stores are 20 minutes away, so if you want a campfire buy your wood before arriving.

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. We camped at Lake Pleasant Regional Park in a Motorhome.Undo

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. We camped at Lake Pleasant Regional Park in a Fifth Wheel.Undo

We really enjoyed our time here. We booked far in advance for a site along the lake and it was amazing. All campsites come with a fire pit and picnic table which is covered by a metal awning. Sites are large and have good distance from other campers. Campsites only have water and electric but a dump station is available. We moved to another site a week later and discovered the desert views were just as amazing. Boat ramps and hiking trails are available around the park. We liked the restaurant (Scorpion Bay) which is located within the park. Freeway access is about 20 minutes away. We would camp here again.

Nightly rate was $25, plus there was a fee of $8 for online reservations. Park is easy in/out. We had reserved site 22 online, but upon arriving and seeing the site we didn't think we (in a 40' RV) could get into it without scraping our jacks. There was a large incline at the entrance to the site, so we changed sites. There was a $5 fee for that change. It was obvious that many RVs had scraped while entering/exiting site 22. There is no mention of the large incline online and it isn't visible from the online images of the site. Site 13 has a bit of an incline also. There are pull-throughs and back-ins and there is good spacing between sites. There are trails for hiking/pet walking. There was, however, a lot of horse poop around the park, even in the kids' sand box. Verizon 4G worked well. There were no benches in the men's shower area to place clothes, towels, etc. There were benches in the women's shower area, but no mirror. We stayed 5 nights and enjoyed our time here, and will return if in the area. We camped at Lake Pleasant Regional Park in a Motorhome.Undo

We stayed here for a total of three days with partial hookups. Both water and electric (50amp) were offered, but sewage would need to be dumped on our way out. The new spot was near the top of a hill overlooking the lake and surrounding area. We were also just below a cell tower which meant we had full coverage while here. The sites are large with a covered picnic area and fire pit. We enjoyed staying here. There was a little play area for the girls and plenty of land to explore as a family.

As previously noted, sites don't have sewer, at least in our site #25. Sites aren't mowed as not enough help, but that's OK. Our site doesn't have a view of the lake, but that's OK as we are only staying for a couple of days. Our site doesn't have a cover for the table but it is 125 feet long. Pretty far out from Phoenix, but if you have a boat, it is a good deal. Probably won't stay here again because to far out for us. We camped at Lake Pleasant Regional Park in a Motorhome.Undo

We REALLY enjoyed this park. The only thing we did not like was no sewer at the sites and a 2-holer dump station on the exit road. Spaces 7-23 have great views of the lake, are paved and are reasonably level. No problem with our 40' motorhome. Sitting right under a Verizon tower so 4G was 5 bars. Electric (50 amp) and water were A+. Many people were swimming in the lake, but we did not try it. Wild burros are occasionally in the campground. Fantastically dark at night and very quiet when we were there. All sites have a covered picnic table and the sites are well spaced. We camped at Lake Pleasant Regional Park in a Motorhome.Undo

Very scenic campground with views of the lake. Paved sites with fire pits and covered picnic tables. Our site was spacious and level. However, as others have posted, some can be a challenge for larger rigs. The showers could use some more attention and cleaning. No benches or mirrors for shaving.

Expensive for a county park (and $8 reservation fee!), but very nicely maintained park. Nice trails, pretty lake views, ranger-led programs, level and clean sites. We camped at Lake Pleasant Regional Park in a Motorhome.Undo

Spent 2 weeks here and loved it. The lake is beautiful, and the campground has large, level sites on pavement. The marina has a great bar and casual restaurant. We were able to pick up Wi-Fi at the marina, and the marina allowed us to use their laundry facilities. We saw wild burros on a hike. We camped at Lake Pleasant Regional Park in a Motorhome.Undo

We spent 9 nights here and thoroughly enjoyed our visit. I imagine that in the summer it's a totally different experience with day-use boaters, but it was quiet and relaxing in February. Beautiful views. Shopping in Peoria is about 20 minutes away. We camped at Lake Pleasant Regional Park in a Travel Trailer.Undo

This is a great CG. There are no amenities other than the great outdoors but that's all we need. The staff are also really great to work with. We have a 40' rig and the campsite we were assigned was impossibly unlevel and super tight. The staff helped us find a suitable site for our stay in fact, the one we ended up with was much, much better and we will request this one on future visits. This though is a lesson to readers with big rigs-- caution many sites are very unlevel and tight--others though are certainly capable of hosting the biggest rigs. An added nice touch is the double dump station so you can get away faster than if there was only one. We camped at Lake Pleasant Regional Park in a Motorhome.Undo

Have been coming to Lake Pleasant for over ten years and it only gets better. Most of the sites in the Roadrunner camping area overlook the lake, what a view. The park Hosts are great and many of them have been coming here for years. Years ago there was only 30 amp service but now there is 50 amp at all sites and I have never had an electrical problem. New since April of this year is the reservation system and I think it's a great idea. You never knew with the old first come first served system if you could get a site during busy holidays. You can make a reservation six months in advance. There is also a new marina on this side of the lake with a fantastic restaurant right on the lake. This is the best COUNTY or STATE camping facility I have stayed at. We camped at Lake Pleasant Regional Park in a Motorhome.Undo
