9 Parks near Phoenix, Arizona
Feb 2011 - $35.00
I stayed at this park for an extended stay, about a year and a half, while I was in school. I really enjoyed my stay. The park was clean, well maintained, and well managed. The pool was always clean and was family friendly. - motoguy
Feb 2010 - $33.00
We stayed here 3 nights in a 35-foot motorhome. We had to back in and then park our car in front. It was a tight squeeze for both, so I doubt that anything much bigger could fit. The park is old and small and with mostly permanent residents. It is clean and well maintained and the pool area was attractive. There is a charge to use the bathrooms and showers and the laundry area was kept locked, too. The owner was friendly to me but I don't think I would want to cross her. It is close to the expressway so there was a lot of noise, but that makes it convenient to most things. This would be a good location if you were planning long term because it is "homey". - sandrag

We pulled in and pulled out. Sites way too close, many run down "full timers", just did not feel comfortable. - 07pacearrow

This park is "no frills" but meets all the basic needs. Small park with all back-in spaces. Sites are long, level with plenty of room for slide outs. Good hook-ups and cable. Easy access off Interstate. Plenty of stores and shops nearby. Located in North Phoenix. Staff very friendly and helpful, even providing a packet of tourist information when we checked in. Major problem was a lack of room to walk our dogs. Would definitely stay here again. - travelswithpuppies

Campground is mostly for full time residents. Pool not heated, "out of service" and locked during the winter. Planes flying overhead during the day light hours. Not the greatest neighbor hood, light industrial with a motor cycle training school near by. Sites not bad but you are hearing motor cycle and airplane noise all the time. There is no such thing a 'dog waste pick up.' RV'ers pick up, but long term residents do not! Some people are nice but most of the long term residents are stand offish. Would never stay here again! - cummins6.7

For needing a park within a big city, Desert Shadows is a good choice. The short term sites are close to the entrance with a lot of space and each has a small concrete patio and bench. Sites are gravel.
Full hookups but no cable. Received over 35 OTA stations, most in HD.
Internet is free in the office, which has coffee and nice sitting area. A lot of the seasonal residents visit there each morning. Internet is available at he sites now, for a fee. Quite reasonably priced
Very clean, lot of amenities available. And short term guests are invited to participate in all the activities which there are many.
We find this a nice quiet park that is very convenient and will return here in the future when we visit family in the PHX area. - JoeVinnie
Oct 2015 - $45.00
This is a very nice park. Has about 80% park models. nice pool area, laundry room big & clean, showers were clean. Lots of activities. Nice area for the short timers. Level gravel lots with concrete patio area. No table but has a nice bench. Has 3 dog runs which are not grass just rocks.. Nice front office staff. We will stay again. - Yepwearedoingit
May 2015 - $42.00
Very convenient and "safe" location. The park is mainly mobile homes with an area designated for RVs. Excellent pool facility. Excellent WiFi in lobby area. Many snowbirds were leaving for the summer. - Maltaman
Dec 2015 - $45.00
This was an average park. The site was a little tight for our 5th wheel but we got by. Services were good and the WiFi was adequate. Cable would have been nice even though there were plenty of over the air channels. The camp does need updating and there is a mulch business across the street that when the wind blew toward the camp you got a heavy odor. We would probably choose another campground if we visit Phoenix in the future. - John Borajkiewicz
Nov 2015 - $49.00
Friendly and helpful check-in.
The large gravel sites are level.
Interstate 17 traffic noise is mostly blocked by a high wall. Airport (light) airplane noise is not annoying and hardly present after sunset.
Easterly winds will blow the compost smell of a nearby earth recycling company across the easterly part of the campground.
Restrooms, showers, pool and hot tub are very clean.
Washers are expensive ($ 2.25 to $ 2.75) and dryers also, $ 0.25 per 5 minutes.
No cable, but channels over the air of good quality.
One big disadvantage is that Wi-Fi is provided by (paid) Tango internet. No promotion code given. Wi-Fi connection was good and fast. - Bluesbirdy
Oct 2015 - $25.00
Stayed in back for 3 mos. good size lot. No security, office hrs 10-5. No business personnel after 5pm. Homeless come in and out. Key is needed to get in & out of pool area. Bad smell from mulch across street. Community room is always locked except usually when BYOB nights. No activities. Owner says can't use DVD in community room-no permit. - Yankee camper
Mar 2012 - $35.00
This is the worse RV park we have ever stayed in and we have stayed in at least 200 different parks in the past 25 years! The management is rude, unreasonable and unprofessional. The blonde lady everyone talks about is unbelievable and all reviews about her are true. If you complain or even ask about anything, you are asked to leave and there is a no refund policy. There is no customer service. The RV park is run down and dirty. Maybe the management should stop smoking and standing around and actually do some work! They should also take a communication course! There is an adult only section, but really the whole park should be for adults as they do not let children walk around the park or ride their bikes. The only people staying here are one`s forced to due to the low cost. Never stay here! Go park at Walmart if you have to! - igocampingalot

We stayed here for 2 months ONLY because it was the closest park to where our son lives and the rate was reasonable. BUT, there are some REALLY trashy permanent trailers in the park and a REALLY trashy trailer park behind the RV park. Staff was friendly but when a permanent resident moved a disgusting, piece of garbage, trailer right behind us we complained and they refused to do anything about it. Evidently a permanent resident had moved out of it into another junky trailer and was trying to sell it. It was finally moved after 3 weeks. The RVers were friendly and so were most of the long term residents. Also, when we arrived the owner told us that he was going to be replacing the ratty picnic tables. Saw in a review from 2010 he was saying the same thing. Still has ratty picnic tables. We could not use ours. We would not stay here again. Rate is based on monthly rate + electric. - User2209

Good location on north side of town with easy access to malls and restaurants and healthcare. Management was friendly and helpful. We ended up staying here 4 months instead of just 2 weeks that we initially planned. March-June. Pool and hot tub are on opposite sides of the park. Also some unusual campers here that work for the carnival. (Literally 20 people sharing a camper.) Lots of snowbirds, and year round residents, and students from the motorcycle school. Cable TV and internet are good. They also offer RV storage. If you are in search of a campground with the best weekly rates, this is it. Had a hard time finding affordable weekly rates in the area and lots of parks are 55+. They keep good tabs on the property and patrol it. We felt comfortable leaving our rig here for a week while we did a side trip. Sites are basic gravel. Occasional smells of garlic from the restaurant nearby. Also next to the castle adult frills store. - sysadmin

Generous size sites. Most of sites are seasonal people. Pretty empty now as it before the season. Day time temps in the 90-100 range, which is warm. WiFi works the best of anywhere we have been, which is great. Nice office staff. Enjoyed the pool and hot tub. We would return if in the are again. - BorntoCruise
May 2015 - $18.00
The park is very clean & organized. The showers / restrooms were immaculate and very well maintained. All utilities were good but the procedure to access the WiFi is confusing.
Our only challenge was there are only back in RV spaces. The RV spaces are large enough and the gravel is very level. The blacktop asphalt roadways are just wide enough but take it slow and easy driving inside the park.
My wife and I were very impressed with the organized nature of Phx. Metro RV park. Entrance and exit for the park are on a one way northbound Interstate 17 frontage road. Our charge was PA membership based. There is a $20 dollar, refundable deposit on the shower / restroom key. - fusejockey

Is a park mostly for long term residents but has several rows of spaces for short term. The spaces are wide enough that the tow vehicle can park alongside. Sites are level gravel with paved driveways down each lane. Everything very clean. For Verizon 4G users OpenSignal app shows 12 down / 8 up which is very good. Laundry is great. - irvirv

Stayed here for a month. Our site was large and had a concrete pad but was close beside a permanent mfg home. The management here is very quick to enforce even small inadvertent infractions. Many rules here! Coyotes and wild Javelina pigs wander thru the park daily even though it is barely north of Phoenix. We will not return here! - Cjackg
Dec 2015 - $13.00
We picked this park out due to price . We are here for the winter. Found it to be a real gem! Staff and permanent residents have all been friendly.
Everything is clean and well taken care of. Close to shopping. We will come back next year! Price rate based on monthly 395.00. - ga475555

This is an UPDATE: Since we were here last December 2012, the park has changed management. It has also chanced it's name from an "RV park" to a "RV resort" with no change in amenities except a substantial rate increase: from $21 in December to $34 in April 2013. There is still no security whatsoever, and the speeding through the "resort" is atrocious. We stayed here for a week and probably will not return. - Mike1987

The staff was courteous and helpful, and the park is well maintained. We enjoyed the pool area and spa, and the laundry facilities were great. This park would have perhaps received a higher rating except for the fact we had a bicycle stolen off the back of our RV while parked there. This apparently is a fairly common occurrence, even though the park is gated. We stayed here two weeks. - User3615
Feb 2014 - $16.00
The PPA rate of $16 is right for this park. Alot of road construction going on right in front of property. The pool and spa are very nice, clean and warm. Laundry facilities are older but only 50 cents to dry and 75 cents to wash. Only two showers within the pool area which closes at 10:00pm. Also only two restrooms which are in the rec hall which also closes at 10:00pm. They do have a nice gas bbq grill and two picnic tables for the RV/ trailer guests. But no table or chairs by your site. Sites are close, lined with palm trees and mail boxes which may makes backing in a little more difficult. - Liv4sun
Oct 2013 - $32.00
Though a PPA campground, they did not honor the rate for Sat or Sun night. We paid two nights at full rate ($32) and two nights at half. So average of $24 a night is not bad. Spaces can seem tight, but are quite level and all utilities within easy reach. Step out patio is nice touch and there is clear space to park tow vehicle next to RV. Pool and hot tub were warm, clean and a great addition; laundry was reasonable and clean. Showers are now tile lined rooms (2) at pool side with lockable door, and shower head is rain-head in ceiling. Only toilet we found was in laundry and while "clean", was certainly not convenient nor adequate for campground. As someone said, be self contained. They have recycling program but do not take glass or Styrofoam. Biggest issue for me was Wi-Fi - it is pay ($5 a day or $15 a week) but NO ONE at check-in knew that or could tell me how to get on. I was advised, "Wait until Monday when manager is here." On Monday, SHE didn't know. That is expensive and inconvenient, particularly when staff hasn't a clue. Overall place was convenient for visiting a relative and sites were not bad. But it just felt like RVers were an afterthought. We'd stay again because of proximity to family. - Too-wow

This trailer park has mostly permanent residents along with some seasonal track employees of the horse race track next door. There are, however, several overnight sites along with several sites for longer short term residents with metered electric payable through the electric company. My husband got a job in the area, so we were staying here until we found more permanent accommodations. The pool was closed for the better part of our stay. It had apparently been closed for almost a year. It did finally open, and it was heated and nice. The hot tub is just that, a hot tub of water, no jets. There are about a thousand stray cats that like to use the entire park as their litter box. The whole place smells like cat urine. You will also, inevitably, step on cat feces in your very own site. The park and the area around it have many nice people, but is also sprinkled with seedy folks. All four of our mountain bikes, which were locked, were stolen during our stay! The "24-hour security" is a joke. The cameras, which were right across from our motorhome, were said to be pointed in the wrong direction to see the thieves. I suspect they are simply there for show. The night security guard sat about 25 feet from where all the bikes were stolen. - Penna Camping

Mostly a permanent mobile home park but many empty sites used for RVs. Most full timers work at the race track and we had No problems. Nice residential area close to many stores, Walmart 1 block north. Big sites with gravel parking and concrete slab on door side. Power great, water needs filtering for taste, sewer hookup fine. No WIFI but 4G on Verizon MIFI. No cable but many OTA channels. Pool and spa are heated and seldom used, pool showers and restrooms are always clean. Big laundry room near pool. - Trikki Rikki

This is mainly a permanent resident park located next to the Turf Paradise Horse Park but they do use empty slots for short term visitors. We spent two weeks here and enjoyed our visit. The pool was heated part of the time and then the heater broke. The guy that would fix it was in the hospital for surgery over Christmas so I can't complain too much about it. The hot tub was wonderful though and we used it a lot. The residents were very friendly and we even had one that brought presents to all the kids in the park including ours for Christmas. This was a very economical place to stay for winter time in Phoenix, especially finding a place that allows kids. - Dudley Clan
