This is a nice place that we stay in when in Phoenix for day or two. It is convenient to Mayo (they give 10% discount if you are going there). Nice long pull thru. Wonderful indoor pool and hot tub. Laundry is very good as well. It has lots of long term people and single wides, etc. But clean and nice. We camped at Desert Shadows RV Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

Have stayed here several times. Fairly level, gravel sites with hookups located more for trailer than motor home. No cable, but good over the air TV. Wifi only at office building. Access from I-17 is good, and location is good. We camped at Desert Shadows RV Resort in a Motorhome.

If I only rated this park on its amenities, I would give it a 9 or a 10. The sites are what brings the rating down. This is more a park model resort than an RV park. The RVs are in "lots" instead of "sites" and are squeezed in between park model homes. The lots are very unlevel, tilting towards the street. We needed to use several levels of leveling blocks under our front wheels in order to level the coach. They are also very close together. If our back window opened up, I could reach out and shake hands with the people behind us. And with our living room slideout extended there is only about a foot between it and the pickup truck belonging to the person next to us. Free cable and wifi are available at the office complex only. In order to get cable at your site, you have to contact the cable company and pay their rates. Same for wifi. We don't need cable and have our own wifi hotspot so it didn't really bother us. They don't accept credit cards for monthly stays, only cash or check. I suggest you pay the deposit for the back gate key so that you can get to a traffic light if you want to make a left turn on the highway. The amenities are another thing altogether. The laundry room is large and clean, with plenty of room on the tables to fold your clothes. Washers cost $1.25, dryers are $0.50 for 20 minutes. There is a sitting area with a tv and magazines in the laundry room. There's a large, heated indoor pool and hot tub. Outside are shuffleboard courts and bocce ball courts. An extensive library also has two tables for jigsaw puzzles and several computers. There are also a billiards room, card room, exercise room, etc. There is always some activity going on at this park. We camped at Desert Shadows RV Resort in a Motorhome.

Rate reflects monthly, in high season plus electric. We were here for 4 months, avoiding winter. This a well-located park in North Phoenix, close to all services and Costco right out the back gate.
We have found Desert Shadows to be very friendly, with as many activities as you care to do. Sites are level, with good utilities and a ton of citrus trees all around the park-free oranges, etc for the picking. The park staff is helpful and friendly. We camped at Desert Shadows RV Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

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. We camped at Desert Shadows RV Resort in a Motorhome.

A remote is available for the back gate. This is a very convenient way of getting to the 101 freeway and the mall behind the park. $40 Deposit and get $35 back. Worth it!

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. We camped at Desert Shadows RV Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

Huge park. Mostly park models but plenty of spaces for short term. Very well maintained park. Free coffee and ice in the office all day. Lots of activities. Two dog runs (dirt) garbage pick up at site. Propane delivery available. Pool/laundry/library/fitness center/ billiards. WiFi available only in the office area which is my reason for the 9 rather than a 10. We camped at Desert Shadows RV Resort in a Motorhome.

Rate reflects monthly stay, electric is additional. We spent three months here at Desert Shadows avoiding winter. RV sites are mixed throughout the resort with park models and most have citrus trees. Short term pull thru stays are in the center of the park. Utilities are very good and trash is picked up at your site twice per week. There are lots of activities available including twice monthly pancake breakfasts, as well as exercise, dances, etc. Good mix of folks of all ages, though not much of a kids park. Costco and In N Out burger are just out the back gate. Close to freeways I17 and101, but not too noisy. We will be back. We camped at Desert Shadows RV Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

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.

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.

This is mainly a mobile home park with lots of permanent residents. It was tight in our spot. It was fine for a few days stay, and it was convenient for driving around town. We camped at Desert Shadows RV Resort in a Motorhome.

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.
