Great location for visiting North Phoenix; easy highway access off the 17 and 101. Near Costco, stores, restaurants, and plenty of other services. Facility is very large with an established community of seasonal trailers & mobile homes, but for transients like us there were two rows of decent pull-thrus up front. We extended our stay four additional days and were moved to a back-in site between a couple of mobile homes, but we had no issue with this. Everybody was extremely friendly - our site escort, the office people, and the seasonal residents themselves. The only showers were in the pool area and the configuration was very weird, but all bathroom facilities were always clean. Indoor pool only. Lots of common areas and great share-a-book library. Large, clean laundry facility. Outdoor shuffleboard, bocce, putting area & golf net for full swings. The seasonal residents actively participate in many activities on their social calendar - quilting, sewing, pancake breakfast, etc. We liked it here and will return. We camped at Desert Sands RV Park in a Motorhome.

We pulled in and pulled out. Sites way too close, many run down "full timers", just did not feel comfortable. We camped at Desert Sands RV Park in a Motorhome.

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. We camped at Desert Sands RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

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!

The park is clean and green. It's more of a full-time resident park rather than a vacation RV park. We were handed a couple of dozen pages of rules. The park is near a fairly busy road and also has planes flying overhead. Children are to be kept next to your RV, so it's safe to say it's not really child-friendly. It's quite suitable for a one-night stay. We felt safe here. The residents are quiet. Both restrooms were closed for repairs. Wi-Fi is no longer free: It's $3.99/day or you can buy a weekly or monthly Tengo plan. The Wi-Fi is strong. We camped at Desert Sands RV Park in a Travel Trailer.

This is a tough one to rate. The sites are very narrow and one may have to park cockeyed to be able to open slides. The pool was fine and the spa was cool compared to others. Most of the park is homes and just a small area for RVs. Getting there is a battle. All I can say is read the directions the Web gives and look at a map if coming in from a different way as we were. Both GPS's tried to send us down streets that were not made for RV traffic. We camped at Desert Sands RV Park in a Motorhome.

No security - the gate was wide open day and night. The spaces seemed narrow. There is no atmosphere to speak of. It is located in a so-so neighborhood in north west Phoenix. We had no real contact with staff. It is OK for overnight, but I can't imagine spending any serious time in this place. We camped at Desert Sands RV Park in a Travel Trailer.

This park could be rename the Purple Park for the color scheme and shirts worn by the very friendly staff. We stayed here for four nights. It was very convenient for our purposes. I might have given it a 10 but for two things. First, the entrance and exit have concrete runoff channels between Williams Road and the park driveway. We were very careful and scraped both entering and exiting. And we noticed many other coachs, fifth wheels and trailers experiencing the same thing. Second, and less of an issue, was the noise when planes were taking off from Deer Valley Airport when the wind was out of the west. That said, we would stay here again. We camped at Desert Sands RV Park in a Motorhome.

Nice clean park, good location to I-17 freeway. Pool was up and running and though we didn't use it, it looked inviting. Some shade, but not a lot. We camped at Desert Sands RV Park in a Travel Trailer.

Nice clean park and the staff is very friendly. Easy access from I-17. When I was there, the pool was drained and the laundromat was closed for repairs. No wifi. Internet and cable is only available from a local provider and is charged by the month only. You can get local channels with your antenna. I only stayed overnight, so I didn't need any of these things. Again, very clean and well maintained. I would stay here again. We camped at Desert Sands RV Park in a Motorhome.

Very close to I-17, easy in and out of park. Excellent location on the north end of Phoenix. Low key and quiet park, mainly working class people. Monthly rates available, I stayed for three months while working and would stay again if in the area, reasonable rates. We camped at Desert Sands RV Park in a Motorhome.
