This was our first stay at Desert Shadows. It is more like a trailer park than a RV park. We had a nice spot for the week right across from the office/pool/rec center. They serve coffee all day in the office. The pool and jacuzzi are both inside. The location was good for spring training games in Peoria. The people were very friendly and they had lots of activities going on and the place was full. Would stay here again for the location. We camped at Desert Shadows RV Resort in a Motorhome.Undo

Beautiful, well maintained park. We visited March 8-14, 2015. All of the orange trees were in bloom and it smelled amazing through the entire park. Sites are pretty close, but we didn't feel closed in. Concrete pad for the trailer, surrounded by gravel and plenty of room to park our truck on the site after we unhooked. They have a gentleman that escorts you to your site and then helps you back your trailer in. Very helpful. Lots of permanent homes here, but they are all immaculately maintained-no old junk here. The park is extremely quiet at night. WiFi is free in office and surrounding buildings, but the signal is very weak-it's only strong enough to use if you are sitting in the office lobby. The lobby is large with comfy chairs, so not really a problem, but it would have been nice to be able to use it in the laundry room which is right across a small courtyard behind the office. The laundry room has glass doors that connect with the indoor pool, but these are kept locked, even at 10 a.m. when we were there, so if you are doing laundry, you have to exit the building and walk clear around to go in a different entrance to the pool. Very inconvenient considering the fact that the doors are there, they are glass, you can see the pool 10 feet away, you just can't get to it to swim unless you go outside and clear around the entire building and then back every 20 minutes to check your laundry. The pool and hot tub areas could use a little cleaning, and maybe repaint, on the floors. They have a book lending library that is very nice. We decided to leave a day earlier than we had anticipated (because we were homesick-not because of the park) and they refunded the fee we had paid for the night we weren't there. We weren't expecting that at all since we had reservations and had paid in full when we checked in. Lots of activities you can participate in at the park, very convenient location in Phoenix. We enjoyed our stay here very much and will return! We camped at Desert Shadows RV Resort in a Travel Trailer.Undo

Very close to I-17 exit, but road noise is not a problem. Not really marked well, so pay close attention to GPS or street signs. Entrance is on right before dead end, which concerned me as it was not marked well off 29th Street. Park is great, with excellent facilities except wifi. Free at clubhouse only, so we used Verizon exclusively. No cable TV but about 30 OTA stations. Laundry room had 19 washers, but 7 were inop. Water pressure dropped as the park filled up. We would camp here again. We camped at Desert Shadows RV Resort in a Motorhome.
COSTCO was right out the back gate. We would get lucky sometimes and follow a long term resident in or out. There is an excellent restaurant called Alexi's less than 5 minutes on Union Hills Dr. That has great food and superb prices

Nice place to stay in the North Phoenix area. Friendly staff , long pull thru space. We did not have to unhook our car trailer. We would stay here again. We camped at Desert Shadows RV Resort in a Motorhome.
Located near I-17 and 101. Restaurants and shopping nearby.

One of the best RV Parks in the country. Absolutely immaculate grounds and facilities. Staff is more than helpful and willing to take time to answer questions or lend a hand. RV section sits in the middle of a very large, permanent mobile home park - the residents are very nice and their pride of ownership shows throughout the park. My rate included the Good Sam discount. This is my second time at this facility and would highly recommend to anyone. We camped at Desert Shadows RV Resort in a Motorhome.Undo

This park is a mobile home park, with about 30 pull-through sites for short stays, which are up front near the entrance. These pull-throughs are long gravel sites with a small concrete pad. Water, electric, and sewer only. Maybe it's because we were here in June, but it was like staying in a ghost town. No atmosphere, no greenery, no lawns, no shade. 107F and nowhere to get out of the sun and heat. OK as a one night stopover. We camped at Desert Shadows RV Resort in a Motorhome.Undo

This resort is mostly park models for snowbirds and some permanent residents. Parking for short-term is on a gravel site with rigs fairly close together. We found the location to be very convenient. The resort was quiet, clean, and the staff was very friendly and helpful. We would definitely stay here again. We camped at Desert Shadows RV Resort in a Motorhome.Undo

There are over 600 spaces at the park, and only 3 shower stalls that close at 10pm. Also no free wi-fi at the sites, but you can reach it at the pool. There is no cable but a few channels over the air. Very low crime at the park, we never even locked up our bikes. Upwards of 90% of the park is retirees living in park models. A large indoor pool and hot tub is very nice, as well as a large laundry room. You can rent a gate opener to allow easy entry/exit through the back gate by Costco. The spaces are tight, no shade or grass, and this place is absolutely sold out in the winter. We camped at Desert Shadows RV Resort in a Motorhome.Undo

By biggest complaint with this park is with Trailer Life/Woodall giving it a triple 10 and a top 100 park by Good Sam. I actually spent the first 30 minutes deciding if I wanted to spend six nights here or try another park. I expected so much more and was very disappointed. With that said, it's a nice, clean park, and the staff and extended stay residents were very friendly. So here's what I didn't like. About 90% of the overnight sites are back in and they are literally wedged between park models. No idea why they chose to design the park like this. No cable. No free Wi-Fi to sites. Gravel sites. No grass. No picnic table. Restrooms are not open 24 hrs. Had to go onto park model carport to get to/use hookups and driver side compartments. Here's what I liked. Nice reservation queue for rigs. Nice wide paved roads. Great amenities like billiards, pool, bocce ball, shuffle board, scheduled activities almost daily, easy access to highways, Costco right behind park. If not for being a great location to visit family and friends, I'd look for another park to stay at next time. We camped at Desert Shadows RV Resort in a Motorhome.Undo

I agree with the last review, nice place but let's not get carried away. We saw same minuses. More park models than RVs. We are active retirees. This place seemed to be populated with those less active and more sedentary. Kind of stuck in the '80's-'90's. We camped at Desert Shadows RV Resort in a Motorhome.Undo

Rate is monthly, plus electric. We have stayed here before and decided to stay for 2 1/2 months this year.We had a corner site with 2 grapefruit trees and concrete patio. Everything worked well and we got Cox cable for the stay. There are a lot of park models, but the residents are very friendly and we were invited to all sorts of activities. A twice monthly Saturday morning pancake breakfast with eggs, sausage and drinks is $3.00! The indoor pool was clean and sparkling. Costco is right out the back gate. We have family close by, and this was excellent for us. There are so many things to do in Phoenix in winter and early spring--Barrett Jackson Auction, Phoenix Open golf, NASCAR, spring baseball and so much more. We will be back next year.

Clean, well maintained park. We planned to stay here one night and ended up staying 3 weeks. We extended our stay on 3 different occasions and had no problems. The staff is very friendly and helpful. Although children are welcome, I wouldn't say the park is family friendly. Absolutely nothing for kids other than limited use of pool. Not sure how many actual RV spots are available; the park appears to be mostly permanent residents in park models. Rate reflects daily with 10% discount. We would stay here again.

Stayed 23rd-26th while visiting grandkids over Christmas. Park is mostly permanents or snowbirds. It is located off I-17 north of downtown. Has twenty 50 amp full hookup pull-throughs. Free Internet in club house, Wi-Fi at space is available through TengoInternet ($$$). No cable. Markets, restaurants all within a two mile radius. The park is well maintained, with trash pick up at your site M-W-F. Will stay again when in the area. We camped at Desert Shadows RV Resort in a Motorhome.Undo

Nice park - stayed here on our way through visiting relatives. Close access to freeways, shops, etc. Gravel pull through sites with full hookups. Concrete pad to put by door so you don't drag gravel into your rig. RV part of park is located in center of a mobile home park so you have access to their lobby, pool, laundry, etc. Free Wi-Fi in lobby / library.

We stayed here visiting family in Phoenix for Christmas. Check in was easy and we were escorted to our site, which was a nice long, level pull through. Only thing missing was a table. The site was clean and well maintained. We did have a problem with the power (it went on and off a couple of times). I moved the power cord to the next pedestal for the night and reported the problem the next morning to the office. Within 10 minutes, they were out and replaced the breaker-problem solved! Good location, close to Costco, freeways and restaurants (In and Out Burger!). We camped at Desert Shadows RV Resort in a Travel Trailer.Undo
