Very nice park, plenty to do. Most sites are back-in. Laundry uses a card that costs $2 plus whatever you put on it. Only in $5 increments, and no refunds. No WiFi in the park, only at the common areas in the front. Very large library with DVD's to check out. A great place to stay. Lot spacing is nearby with a sunny/open exposure. Site surface is gravel and features a patio. We camped at Paradise RV Resort (55+ Resort) in a Fifth Wheel.

Rate is based on 1 week with PA, 1 week w/ TT 20% discount, and includes the $4 a day resort fee, and a rediculous 14% tax.

We were in site 1454, which was nestled in the middle of cute little park model manufactured homes. We had a nice, double concrete patio, with more than enough room to park our car, and truck, plus have a huge patio area.
All utilities worked well, with the exception of one day they we working on a broken water line. I think the whole park was without water for most of one day.
We really liked this park. As others have said, there is not grass in the rv sites, but you are in Arizona.
The people in the homes around us were very sweet and accommodating, and the staff is wonderful. This an extremely quiet area, and very secure due to the front security gate. We could hear the coyotes howling every night.
No park wifi, but Vz mifi, AT&T, Vz phones, and rooftop satellite dish worked well.
Navigating into our spot was a little tight, as it's 90 degrees of turning and backing, with a home directly on the narrow street, but it all worked out fine.
We will return with PA, or if we get a full TT membership, as this Encore park would only be $20 a night. We camped at Paradise RV Resort (55+ Resort) in a Fifth Wheel.

Tips for other Campers:

They do not offer picnic tables at the rv sites. Close proximity to 101 and 303 freeways. The Park offers a lot of activities, as well as concerts, trips, pickleball courts, and a pool.

Excellent park. Friendly people. This is primarily a snowbird destination park, although it is open to folks who just stay overnight or for short stays. Price is reflective of Thousand Trails discount, of an earlybird 6 month discount. FHU 50 amp. Good Verizon and Direct TV. All amenities. Due to the monthly rate, electric and propane are extra. Pet friendly, but limited pet sites. Large flat sites. We camped at Paradise RV Resort (55+ Resort) in a Motorhome.

This is primarily a park model resort that has rv sites intermittently spread around it...in between the permanent homes. The sites are level, concrete, and very spacious...but no picnic tables.

The office staff are very pleasant. The amenities are wonderful. Very clean, large laundry room. Beautiful pool. Just about every store imaginable within a 10 min drive. You won't have the usual "RV park ambience", but for a brief stay its great. We camped at Paradise RV Resort (55+ Resort) in a Motorhome.

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.

Tips for other Campers:

Sun City is a great area with lots of services.

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 camped at Paradise RV Resort (55+ Resort) in a Travel Trailer.

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. We camped at Paradise RV Resort (55+ Resort) in a Motorhome.
