This park is modern and well maintained and has an abundance of great services and activities. The common areas are beautiful, and there is lots to do. The customer service was extremely friendly and professional. The park caters mostly to winter residents in park models, so there was no wifi, even for sale. The spots for temporary visitors are nothing special, just a big lot. However, the parking is horrendous. Whoever designed the spaces has never tried to back an RV. All sites are a 90 degree backin off a very narrow lane, with park models on the other side of the lane, built nearly to the edge of their lots. Then, each site has a concrete "patio," not very useful as a patio, really, but they require you to be exactly adjacent to it when you park. This complicates the parking even more. On some spots, I noticed they had put light poles and trees in front of the sites, cutting down on parking options even further. A very nice employee helped me to park, and it took the two of us about 20 minutes (him in the blazing sun!) to accomplish it. But as horrible as it was getting in there, that was the only negative to an otherwise beautiful resort. We camped at Paradise RV Resort (55+ Resort) in a Travel Trailer.

Great park with so many activities. Very friendly staff and long time owners make you feel so at home. Lots of room and wonderfully cared for grounds. Two small negatives : slow internet and only by the pool. Laundry is very expensive. We camped at Paradise RV Resort (55+ Resort) in a Fifth Wheel.

Passport America was accepted. Lots of park model homes and several rv sites throughout park. Very friendly folks at front desk. Back area was pet friendly. Several stores and eating areas within 2 miles. Would defiantly go back. We camped at Paradise RV Resort (55+ Resort) in a Motorhome.

PA rate plus $3 Resort fee. Since one does not have a choice about paying this fee, it should be a part of the regular rate. Staff was friendly. Escort was expert in backing-into-site assistance. Sand sites level and wide, but rain makes sand sticky and annoying (probably not often a problem in Phoenix). No special dog walking area, but have to stay in pet area of park. Lack of wireless at RV sites, not waterfront and Resort fee merits lower rating. Would stay again because of PA rate. We camped at Paradise RV Resort (55+ Resort) in a Fifth Wheel.

Not a typical campground and your site will be between or near to park models. 90% of the park is park models. The park staff was super friendly, we appreciated escort to the site and our rate was Passport America in summer. Park was mostly empty due to time of year, but is very large and probably very busy when it gets cooler. Lots of perks like a beautiful pool, jacuzzi, library, huge laundry, gym, access to an on-site computer, church service on Sunday...all which were available even in off-season. Sites did not appear to be shaded and the hookups were way at the back of the site, so we needed extra sewer hose to reach. Great deal for the rate, and we would return.

We made reservations by phone with a super nice lady. Check-in was very quick and efficient when we arrived. The park is clean and very well maintained as well as being quiet which may be due to the off-season starting. Our price was with a PA discount and is a good value. The sites are adequate in size but the electric was at the extreme rear of the site so some rigs may need an extension to reach the electric pedestal. Our rating is determined by no Wi-Fi, no cable and all back in sites, which are long enough and wide enough for any rig, but the streets are very narrow which makes turning radius and backing into sites with big rigs somewhat difficult. The site escort was very helpful in backing in. Our GPS took us on a scenic tour and when we called the office because we could not locate the park, they recommended using Peoria AZ instead of Sun City. Presto, the GPS found the park with no problem. We camped at Paradise RV Resort (55+ Resort) in a Motorhome.

Very unusual experience. A beautifully maintained and managed 55+ resort. A lot of "permanent" snow-bird mobile homes. Immaculate grounds, pool and hot tub. Activities galore...we had time for none of them. Rate reflects an Encore "weekly special" rate. Very generous paved roads and gravel site with concrete patio pads. No cable or Wi-Fi. Verizon service was 4 of 5 bars. We would definitely return. We camped at Paradise RV Resort (55+ Resort) in a Fifth Wheel.

I have a feeling this place is really busy in the winter, but in August: we were almost alone. It's a huge park. Plenty of level spaces, and the gate guard was super friendly and helpful. Very clean laundry and they have a pet only area. So that if you have pets, they park you in one section devoted to pets. Bunnies everywhere and our little dog loved barking at them. Caution on the water. When you first turn it on, let it run for 1 minute before hooking up to your filter or rig. Some of the spaces may go empty for months, building up dust, so let them run till clear. We will return to this site when returning to Phoenix area: as it was super clean and secure.

Okay place to spend a couple of days while we got the rig ready for travel, but it is not a place I would stay for long. Too much like a trailer park. Staff was very friendly and helpful. Facilities we saw were clean. Security guys are everywhere - felt very safe here. Not much in the area, at least nothing you can walk to. A car or truck is a must.

Very nice park, mostly permanent units for winter owner/residents. Would have rated higher but had no pull throughs, no cable and no Wi-Fi available at site 1515. Had good TV reception through TV antenna. We would stay here again. Rate was with Good Sam discount. We camped at Paradise RV Resort (55+ Resort) in a Fifth Wheel.

Stayed for thirty days on a Thousand Trails special of $199.00 plus electric. A great 55+ resort with many activities. There is also a diner on site open for breakfast and lunch during the week, it is closed on weekends. Great office staff and there is 24 hour security. The resort has a separate pet area for animal lovers. You don't have to listen to barking dogs if you don't want to. There is much to do in the surrounding area. I would stay at this resort again.

Our next door neighbors had a very noisy heater than went on every six minutes and kept us awake at night. It was so loud we thought it was a generator at first. When we asked to be changed to another site, they put us right next to the main road, with lots of constant traffic and noise. We tried pulling in head first so our beds would be farther from the road and a security guy came by and made us turn it around. What difference does it make which way you face? There were two permanent trailers on both sides of us. We then tried moving to the other side of the concrete slab and again he told us we'd have to move. We asked for a refund and left to drive around all afternoon and evening to try to find another campground. We ended up having to sleep in the Cracker Barrel parking lot that night. We also did not like their laundry room and feel it is a rip-off. The have very small, shallow washers that are over-priced and do NOT take quarters. You have to pay $2.00 for a card and keep adding money to it. They do not have a change machine to give you smaller bills and you never use the exact amount you've put on the card, so you end up losing money. We usually only do two or three loads and this time we ended up having to do six loads! For $50/night they don't even have cable TV and in order to use their Wi-Fi, you have to take your computer and go over near the office, which is not convenient. They offer activities for which we paid (in the price)and didn't need or use a single one. We just wanted a site with hook-ups, and cable TV would have been nice for that price. We will never stay here again and do not recommend it. We camped at Paradise RV Resort (55+ Resort) in a Motorhome.

This was our second visit to this park/resort, and not much has changed from last year other than the cable TV service once offered at no charge has now been disconnected and you must either have a satellite dish on you rig or use your TV antenna to get a few fuzzy local channels. The people who work at the front desk are very friendly, capable and helpful. There is much to do at this retirement snowbird resort if desired and the MLB pre-season baseball stadium in Peoria is just a few miles away. Laundry payment is done with a pre-paid card with no refunds which seems to be popular these days. It takes some planning but worked out well and we did not leave any money on the card this year as we did last year. While it has been noted that the hard packed sandy and sparsely appointed RV spaces are scattered among the park model homes, the setting is unique and not at all like most RV parks that takes some effort to get used to. We like its uniqueness and again plan to stay there for a few weeks next winter. We camped at Paradise RV Resort (55+ Resort) in a Motorhome.

This park is an easy place to stay. The staff were very good, the park is clean and well maintained. There is a mixture of park models, motorhomes and trailers. There is a lot of things to do if you are there long enough to be involved. There is a tennis court and small cafe on the property. There is a 24 hour manned gate. We will stay here on our way home .
