They close the office from 12:00 to 1:00 so you have to sit and wait in a hot parking lot waiting for them to open. The sewer hook-up at the site was awful and probably illegal. No cable and no Wi-Fi. Their entrance is very narrow and restrictive. The road they are on (Ajo Way) is so busy that you sometimes can't get out of the park with your car, let alone your RV. There are much better places to stay when visiting Tucson. - Cucutz

I really enjoyed my stay here. The sites were clean (back in only) and the grounds were very nice. The real pleasant parts about Desert Pueblo, in my opinion, were all the different amenities they had - picnic tables, clubhouses, nice trees/scenery, putting green, pools, hot tubs, lawn games and so on. We stayed for a few days only as we were passing through Tucson, but it was quite enjoyable and we would've loved to have stayed longer. We'll definitely keep them in mind when we swing back into town. - Victor Cecic

The sites are large, deep, and clean. There is no noise from the busy street. When we called to make reservations, the person who answered the phone was curt and rude, but the person who checked us in was pleasant. The biggest disappointments were no Wi-Fi and no cable. This park is a mobile home community, and overnighters are not the focus. We will not stay here again. - LB Rohn

We stayed for several weeks in June and will stay the 1st week in July. What has made this Park so special is the Manager and her significant other. She is not just efficient at what she does, but she is incredibly helpful solving any number of problems that come up. When we lost power in our Class A (106+ degrees), her significant other offered to install new house batteries for me. Remember, it was hot as h#%! and the batteries weighed over 65 pounds each! He never complained and installed them quickly and correctly! The Park itself is very clean, centrally located near downtown Tucson, AZ, and has a cute little swimming pool and large Clubhouse with ping pong, pool table, games, a library and a big screen TV. Yes, there isn't much shade, but we just have to wait a few years for the trees to grow! After making my reservations, the manager sent me a complete Park Map. The best part was how she showed the way into the Park and how to enter our space. Most parks just let you figure that out on your own! I would recommend this Park as the best, most friendly place to stay with your RV in Central Tucson! - Deb J

Location, location, location are the key reasons to stay at this park. This is an RV oasis in the heart of Tucson. They have taken a large city lot and added all the things you look for in a place to stay with your RV, even a small pool. A combination of wide, but closely spaced pull thru and back in sites, nicely level and well equipped. There is a "club house" that offers a comfortable lounge, table tennis and a small library. The laundromat facilities are also in the club house so you can wait in comfort while doing your laundry. BE AWARE that this park offers Passport America discounts on Monday - Thursday from April to October but it is not obvious on their website. Once they have charged your stay they have no way to reverse those charges and offer the lower PA rate. All in all, a great place to stay, especially if the University or other urban locations are your local destination. - Dunwoodyradio

If you are looking for a resort, this is not it. However, if you are looking for a convenient location, this is the place. As others have pointed out, this is basically a paved parking lot with a few trees around the periphery. The small park is well maintained and the staff was exceptionally welcoming and helpful. We had a pull through space, which was large enough for our trailer and tow vehicle. The sites are close together, but there was enough room for our slideout. The location is definitely urban, so expect some traffic noise. There was some distant train noise, but not bothersome. The park is no more than 10 minutes drive from downtown Tucson with many restaurants and other amenities. Nothing within easy walking distance, though. The park has a small pool,. which we didn't use. - jwppagosa

This is great place to stay, even for a few days. 80% of the lots are what they call "park models." Basically a 400 sq. ft. single wide mobile home w/ a little yard & porch. They are very cute & homeowners take pride of ownership & decorate their small yards w/ yard art & plants.
There is a section that is 100% motorhomes, trailers, & 5th wheels. We parked on a level gravel lot w/ a good size patio & concrete driveway for our car between park models, but there were also other trailers/motorhomes around us. It was very quiet except for air traffic landing at the Tucson airport & fighter planes from the nearby military airfield. We were ok w/ the noise. We're proud that out military was practicing so diligently.
There is a beautiful large pool, hot tub, & lots of things to do: card games, shuffle board, wood crafting, quilting, knitting, crocheting, nature hikes, bible study, pickle ball, tennis, & a farmer's market once a week to name a few. Guests are extremely friendly & courteous as is the office & maintenance staff.
The bath houses were very clean and kept up at all times. Negative: the water pressure and temperature would come and go depending on usage. The bathhouse in the section of 100% motor homes had private bathrooms; i.e., toilet, shower, sink all in a private room. The laundry rooms were very clean & kept up at all times. Washers $1.25/dryers $1. Hook ups were great, WiFi excellent, Verizon worked great.
Service companies also drop by the resort. Propane dealer comes twice a week, we saw RV repair people, RV detailing. And there were food trucks a couple of times a week. If you're ever here when the tri-tip guy is: buy the tri-tip, it has a wonderful flavor. We would definitely stay again even if we were staying for a few days. It really is a top-notch place. - Living the Life

Who could believe that until January you can get a Passport America discount at a place like this! We were looking for a stop on the way through the area in December of 2017, this popped up on a search through Passport America and decided to give it a try. Impressive to say the least. As we pulled in and were setting up a couple parked near us invited us for Happy Hour, so friendly all through this beautiful resort. Meticulously manicured and impressive! We used our own Internet and had great 4g coverage with both Verizon & AT&T. We stayed in one of the courtyard sites with a green grass square in the middle. Very close to a back gate that lead to great biking and hiking. We liked it so much we stayed for a week in January of 2018 without the discounted price! someday when we don't want to move around as much as we do I could see spending the entire season here! - dmkimm

Stayed there most of January. Streets paved, club rooms clean. Activities galore! This park has access to the "loop" bike path that is paved and runs along miles of Tucson. Everyone was very friendly. We will definitely go next year! Electric is separate..as in most of the West for longer term stays. - Rusty Quilter

This park sets a high standard for all parks, especially the KOA brand. It is one of the nicest KOA's I have ever seen. The roads and sites are all concrete, very wide and big-rig friendly. Each site has an adjacent place for a car, even though the site are long enough to accomodate the car behind the rig. They have covered sites available that use solar panels to provide cover and generate energy. What a great concept! There are two pools and two hot tubs. Both are very nice and one has a playground beside the pool area. The facilities are pristine and the grounds are very clean. Curbside trash pickup is a plus. We arrived after hours and were very happy to be greeted at the gated entrance by 24-hour security. The location is really nice. It is close to lots of restaurants and shopping options and is right off the freeway, but we did not hear any road noise. It is also close to the airport, but we only heard the sound of planes mid-day, never in the late evenings. They are right next to an RV sales and repair service, which is very handy if you need something special for your RV. - PBW

The sites under the solar panels are shady and delightful, well worth the extra fee. All other RV sites are out in the open in huge, parking lot like expanses. The people are quite pleasant. Trash pickup is done conveniently from in front of the site. Recycle bins are provided so one can segregate and put out separately one's recyclables. There are two tiny dog parks but one huge grassy dog park, where even the most athletic and large dog could run and play fetch happily. WiFi is contracted out to a third party provider, and the original connecting is difficult. The instructions provided by the office are inadequate and incomplete. And one must use a different code and a different e-mail address for every device with which one wants to access the Internet. Very awkward. However, once the connection was set up, the reliability and speed was some of the best of what I've experienced at RV camps. There was a very loud party a few sites down from us well after 10:00 p.m. quiet time. I went and spoke to them, and they quieted down some. When I walked the dog at midnight, I mentioned to the gate guard that the party was still going on. I was told the guard would pursue it, but as far as I could tell that did not happen. One should be aware that the whole park is huge. - Samuel J

This place defines RESORT. It has multiple pools and multiple dog walks, including ones tucked into corners that aren't even on the park map. Dog wash, sites with private off-leash, fenced w/shaded dog park. BBQ restaurant onsite with authentic Texas BBQ. WIDE sites, most with a fruit tree (yes, the lemons were GOOD). Camp store, etc., etc. If they added a Beauty/Barber shop, doctor/dentist office, you'd never have to leave. But you SHOULD leave to go see all the wonderful things to see in the Tucson area! - CMNs Life on the Road

If you are broke and need anyplace HERE YOU GO. I did not actually have any problems here but not brave enough to use bathrooms . Gun shots heard almost every night, police w/ sirens and helicopters over head numerous times, Loud traffic almost 24/7, Worst wifi so far I have encountered even at the 40 dollars a month connection. Manager promises a lot, follows through on little. Paid for a full month so there is a 50 dollar deposit on electric and I used it all somehow ? met a few nice people there but DRUGS and dealers Prostitutes Homeless people everywhere. crappy bathrooms (I got gym membership so I could have a clean place to shower ) may not bother some people but the fact I made it 30 days is A miracle. I don't recommend it and strongly suggest you look elsewhere unless you are looking for that kind of place - tatmanco

Park for small RVs only with no programs and very tight spaces. Value for money poor. Has no discounts. Clean older park with very friendly staff that is in Hi traffic area. Would not stay here again. - RVLuver

I stayed here for 2 nights to have my motorhome checked and repaired. The shower rooms were rundown but clean. Manager very friendly and helpful. But there is more to a park then just the manager and shower rooms! The permanent residents there think that they are better than those of us that are just there for a few days. I sat in my lawn chair and watched as the ringleader of the larger group put on a mask of concern while talking to the manager then as she was walking away with most of the group she tells them that "The fat Bitch needs to go". I would have returned to that park just because the manager was so nice but also because she promised to put me as far away from that group but she no longer works there. - Annita

This place was the worst. Can't believe we stayed the entire night. Left as fast as we could at the break of dawn. Did'nt get any sleep. Was not in he best part of town - Nana2008

We were visiting friends came in on a Sunday they were very relaxed about paying and were able to wait until Monday. Our site was very nice and convenient to the pool and club house. But we were NEVER informed that there was a shower room available for RVers. This is a big oversight in my mind, very disappointing to learn two days before we are leaving that showers were available. The shower rooms are very nice upgraded with new tile it sure would have been nice to have the use of them for our whole visit! - DebbieSisters

Very disappointed. I thought Encore/Equity Lifestyle was a large company. This park has very low standards. Very weedy in common areas and some sites. Multiple RV's on single sites, work trailers and boats in yards, overflowing carports with junk. I like the fact that kids are allowed to live here and my dobermans are OK in this park. Bikers are also prevalent at all hours. Not too many teenagers yet, just a few that live here. The clubhouse leaves much to be desired, with a lack of activities and exercise bikes. The only bright spot is the admin lady, very friendly, but she has to work maintenance all the time. This is a park that I will not stay in again. - jbanner77

The managers were very helpful. We stayed three nights here and loved it. We even had the help of folks getting out of the park as well. I really did like this park it was close enough to Hwy 10 to give you access to the city but far enough that you didn't hear any of the hwy noises. - CourtneyHawke

Have stayed before and came back. Park is under new management. It is not the happy friendly place of the past. Most of our friends that return every year had already left because of the unprofessionalism of how the park is now run. Management involves themselves in Loud and profane Public conflict with patrons. They have several noisy dogs that are allowed to disturb residents. We hadn't been into it a week and had a note on our door stating that it is resident responsibility to get rid of the existing weeds. Children are allowed to run freely and unattended through the park and tamper with residents belongings. WiFi was so weak it was unusable. Gravel sites are close together. Facilities rundown and unkempt . The dog area is not picked up or clean and was full of trash. The Receipt of Payment seemed sketchy. It said balance due and had the amount we just paid as still owing. The stay was so disappointing that we left much sooner than we wanted to. We will not stay at tratel again. - PurpleGypsie

We stayed here for four months the winter of 2017/2018. The manager was very generous, affable, accommodating and diligent about park cleanliness and security. The park is located in a part of town that has some homeless and a lot of traffic. The traffic noise is in your face if you park up by the front of the park, not so bad in the back. The park is just around the corner from Interstate 10 so makes it easy to get around Tucson. There are numerous chain and mom and pop restaurants. The park isn't as ritzy as some of the other parks in the area but my wife and I don't need that. We need everything to work, like bathrooms and sewers, electric, etc. and they did at Whispering Palms. The manager and her husband got to be good friends as well as some of the other people in the park. A friend came to visit us for a month and management made sure their RV was parked right next to us. Can't say enough good about this park. You can look up a good video on you tube about the park made by a pro. - steppin right along

Gravel full hookup pull-through convenient to the Interstate but a long way from Saguaro National Park. Many long term residents, but plenty of room for travelers. Wi-Fi was good, but the cable was dead at our site. (They had been installing new water lines and may have cut some of the cable connections.) We picked up cable from the vacant site next door. We would stay here again. - Alworth

We stayed for 2 nights March 28 and 29, 2016 in our teardrop camper during a two month trip across country. Management was very friendly and helpful. Park was very neat and clean. Restrooms were excellent. Some parks we stayed at during the 2 months on the road were poor, but Whispering Palms was great. Would definitely stay there again when in Tuscon. - Jo and John

I stayed 2016 winter here. It's a fairly noisy park with nearby roads and dogs in and around park. One dog -pit bull, in park is kept inside a fence around a mobile and kept jumping the fence and attacking other dogs and campers. There is a surcharge for their elec so you pay more than the local rate -17.8c. Parking is insufficient -cars are parked in roadway making it hard to get in/out. I probably will not be back and caution others from. - 2 maybe 3 eagles

Wi-Fi only works if you stand next to the manager's trailer. Useless through the rest of the park.
A COCKROACH fell ON MY FACE while I was taking a SHOWER!!! That pretty much says it all about this place. No... there's more and worse. There's a coded lock on the door (and a sign) to keep the prostitutes and druggies out of the bathrooms at night, but someone in the park props the door open every night so they come on in anyway. I tried to take a shower at 11, then midnight, then fell asleep and finally took a shower at 3am... the door was still propped open but at least druggies and prostitutes were gone.
Hot shower. That's all I can say. But a COCKROACH on my face. And be careful... in all the nooks and crannies and corners of the shower/laundry house are BROWN RECLUSE SPIDERS. I dropped my toothbrush by the sink and thank God I looked before I stuck my hand between the sink and wall.
It is not an experience I would ever care to repeat in my life. I'm an RVer, a traveler. After the reviews I read on Google, I expected a good experience, not the experience of staying in a seedy motel where prostitutes do their business. - Kayla Genteel
