We paid $325 for a week, taxes not included. As others have pointed out, this is not really a resort park, but you have is a nice clean, small park with sites that are about average in width, but they are extra long. This is not a park where you can just pull in and get a site, reservations are required. The park is very clean, and they have a security patrol. Check-in is a 4x8 sign that has a box containing your site number, a map, and codes to the bathroom and Wi-Fi. You don't have to go to the office, unless you need something. All the roads and sites are asphalt, with gravel between the sites. The Wi-Fi worked very well, as did the TV, OTA and satellite, and cell service was excellent. The park is right off of the interstate, so there can be a lot of road noise. There were several times where it sounded like the highway was a drag strip. There is also a motor sport area across the interstate, so that can also get noisy, but that is usually only during the day. - Bbtj

We were at a rally so no idea of cost. All concrete sites and roads with large staggered sites give you privacy and room to move. It was originally an RV dealers showcase area so has paths and some landscaping. Sites are pull in back out. The paths have benches and open areas that are great for socializing. It is close to I 10 and only has a prefab shower room/ rest room area. Road noise is not an issue for me but can be for some. It is a small unique park as apposed to the standard mega parks you will usually find in Phoenix area. Also be aware it is only for motorized RV's. - peddy dick

Lovely odd-designed park with excellent location - easy access to Chandler, interstate Hwy, casinos, Phoenix, etc. Immaculate large sites with full hook-up. Had no problem with wi-fi. Large clean laundry. Would like to give 10 but no amenities such as pool, hot-tub, etc. As others have pointed out, the office is a bit off the grounds and there is no security gate but it felt very safe. Free RV car wash available across the road for guests. Because of the proximity to I-10, there is definitely a lot of traffic noise as well as a race track across the interstate. Didn't bother us much, but could be very problematic for some. Would return if in area but probably not as destination. - 2retiresoon

Staying here for 1 week. Rate based on weekly rate discount. This is a 55+ community with a small group of sites set aside for RV's. Calling ahead for a reservation is definitely recommended. Overall, we have found it to be very neat, clean, & peaceful. Residents are friendly. Some older units, but all are well maintained. The sites are gravel (like 99% of the area), but not dusty. Each site has a good sized paved patio. Interior roads are paved & easy to navigate. The only negative I have found is that the electrical hook-up at this site is 50 amp only. An adapter is necessary for a 30 amp rig. The community is very convenient to the Chandler area. Lots of shopping close by. If you are coming in on the AZ-202 Loop, do not take the Gilbert Road exit unless you are okay with a u-turn to get to the campground entrance. There is no cut in the median across from the entrance. We would definitely stay here again when in the Chandler area. - Life's good

This place is all about the value. We discussed some of the "questionable" reviews with management prior to arriving for a one month visit close to daughter #1. Frankly, this was about the only option near Chandler, so we took the chance. I would suggest you ask for a space in the "main part" of the park, which is peppered with a combination of mobile homes, and RVs. There is a small section for RVs closer to Gilbert Rd., and it was noisier there. Just about all sites we saw in the main park of what essentially is a mobile home park with RVers tossed in were back-in, and you might find yourself at the limit of your 50 amp line to reach the power pole. Power in Chandler (in fact much of AZ) goes on and off...in our case 5 times in one month. We counted on our surge protector to keep things in shape, and the power was 117/119v across both legs pretty much all the time. Our site was wide enough for 4 slides out, plus the toad either in front/or to the side. A concrete pad was large enough for the awning to cover the chairs. We brought our own Internet, and the cable was just fine. 100+ year old cactus, oleander/bougainvillea (in bloom), and palm trees abound. The pool was large, deep and clean. The hot tub next to the pool was hot and clean. In looking around, it's like time stands still here. The maintenance guy on the golf cart hands out doggie treats, the central courtyard surrounding the pool complex, and the interesting mix of "desert rat" residents, transient RVers, multi-month snowbirds, and local working residents make for an interesting and friendly mix. Anytime we caught ourselves comparing to some of the jazzier places we have stayed we stopped, because we couldn't name one that offered full 50 amp hook-ups for what is about 20-30 bucks a day. If you are looking for luxury...keep driving. However, if you want a unique, clean, value-laden historical piece of Arizona RV'ing...go ahead. - tres gatos

We were here for 3 nights, wish it had been less. This is basically a mobile home park with spots for a few RV's as an afterthought in a very tight corner of the park right next to a very busy road with lots of buses and a 24 hr. Circle K right behind us. We have stayed in nearly 100 RV parks and campgrounds and this was one of the worst we have ever tried to pull in or hook up to. Our electricity was shared on a 30amp circuit with a gigantic lighted 2-sided billboard over our head, so that if we used more than 2 appliances at the same time in our trailer, the circuit would break. Turn the breaker off and out goes the billboard! The sewer hookup was actually underneath the RV, so you hook up and back over your sewer. Road noise was inconceivable. The office's answer for everything was "that's the way it's always been". We had a hedge of bushes between us and the bus stop and music playing 24 hours a day at the Circle K. The pool/rec room was nice. We would NEVER return here. This park would be better served to eliminate the RV spots. - kcjflea

Got to the park with a reservation on a Sunday. The office is closed weekends (wasn't mentioned when I made the reservation) but luckily I had a site number. Oops, that site is occupied by a very nice couple who have been there for 2 months. And don't plan to leave. So we looked all over the park for a vacant site. It's an old mobile home park so RVs ar parked where mobiles have moved out. Hookups are well back in sites. We checked several vacant sites, either had no plug in electric box or too far for my electric cord. Didn't stay because we are traveling with dogs and need electric for the AC. AND we weren't told when I made the reservation that you need a 50 amp adapter if you only need 30 amps. - Go often

Great place to stay in Phoenix. Yes, this park is older, but it is well maintained and the staff are second to none. As others have mentioned this is a mobile home park that rents vacant lots to RVers - the sites are large and well spaced with hookups that used to serve mobile homes so are generally located at the rear of the site, but we had no problems with anything. The only amenity we used was the laundry room (excellent), but they also have a pool, hot tub, and various organized activities. Compared to other parks in the area, Holiday Village represents great value and we will definitely stay here again. - MaggieMouse

We made reservations to stay here. When we arrived, the site was a vacant lot full of weeds. No central hook ups, just residental stubs left over from a long gone park model. Avoid this place. - Luke

Very tight....most spaces back in and require dis-connect of tow vehicle. Sites very tidy. Quiet location. Friendly office staff, help with parking in very tight spot. Mostly full timers in park, rear spaces access from side street not main entrance. Security did not seem to be an issue. Great access to LRT. - Tonyl

Parking lot camping. Strange but very safe. Perfect location to the rail so you don't have to drive around Phoenix. No useful wifi. - Howls_Castle

Just an older park located close to ASU in Tempe. Right next to the metro line. Quiet enough, but most sites are permanents who pay no attention to speed limit signs in the park. Back in sites only, you need lots of sewer and water hose as well as a long electric cord as all the sites have hookups at the very rear of the site. The sites were just wide enough to avoid a cramped in feeling and deep enough for a 45ft motorhome. We found the manager friendly enough, and it was OK for a couple of nights. - run2

Experience was terrible. Spot to park was not as advertised. Had a sewer line break under our trailer and there was no offer of help to move or to cover the sewage so I would not have to wade in it to get out. No offer of any refund for remaining time, I was not staying here any longer. All they could say is "it is not our fault" I understand it does happen. Maybe a little preventive maintenence would help and also to accept a little responsibility. - Mike Harrington

We needed a place for the night on our way back to Texas to visit with family and this was close to them. City RV park with permanent residents, clean and neat, excellent cable and WiFi; the shower facility was very stuffy with poor ventaliation but clean. We would stay again when in town to visit family. - Caroline and Joe

We, a Dutch family on our first visit to the US, stayed one night at Apache Palm RV Park in order to return our motorhome in Mesa. The only garbagecan we could find was closed so we put our little bag beside it. The next morning the manager wanted to charge us an extra 5 dollars for cleaning up the garbage that had unfortunately been spread out in front of the office, presumably caused by a dog or cat. Even though we apologized, she still charged us for the little clean-up. An hour later we returned to the office with a second garbage bag and our question was again where the garbage cans are? We were not allowed to drop it in their garbage can. Instead she insisted that we should take our garbage with us in the RV and leave the park (!) which we eventually did to avoid further escalation and to return our motorhome in time. We have been visiting several hundreds of campsites in Europe in the past 30 years, but we never experienced a situation as unfriendly and unwelcoming as this! During our stay in the US, the staff of all other RV parks were very friendly and helpful. - Peters 2016

Having viewed Twin Palms on Google Earth, I was a little apprehensive about spotting the entrance on arrival but no problems.
A very well maintained, clean park with excellent facilities. Grounds keepers were there about 8:00 Tue morning, trimming, mowing and blowing to maintain the very neat appearance.
I was especially impressed with the sewer hookup. It had not been run over, cross-threaded by an 800 lb. gorilla or otherwise abused and made unusable.
This was our first visit but not the last. - jrbarber

This tiny park is well groomed with small flowering trees when I was there in April (no shade). Any rig under 34 feet should fit in any of the 20 spaces arranged in a U-shape. Very nice bathroom (single use) and small laundry ($2 load). No other facilities are present.
Since it is the backyard of Steve's Cycle Shop (the owner), on Main Street in Mesa, the noise is right there. Roaring motorcycle noise plus regular traffic made it unpleasant to spend a month there.
It is on the east side of Mesa, close to carpet and awning shops and many RV sales lots. If you are in the market for an RV, there are several within walking distance. Camping World is across the street.
The daily rate listed here is based on $425 monthly fee (includes $10 electric meter reading fee, plus a $15 Trash fee) plus all the other fees charged including electricity.
When you check out, another $10 meter fee (owner checks the meters so he charges for his time (2x $10) to read the meter when you check in/out), plus water/septic/trash charges and a $10 key charge (refundable). There is an $8 billing charge plus 13 cents per KWh, which is about average for the area.
The site rental paperwork is the same as though you are renting an apartment/house rather than an RV site. He does let you fill out the paperwork and return it to him.
There is a $250 deposit required at time of reservation which you must get refunded after the utilities are deducted and the keys returned. If you are leaving the area, don't plan on departing Sunday or Monday as the shop is closed. - Margo Armstrong

Stayed here for one week. The park is small with only 15 sites but it was quiet (except for occasional motorcycle noise from the shop next door). Our site #10 was a back in site and had plenty of room with our 36 ft motorhome with 2 slide outs and our tow dolly and car. No bad smells all week we were there. We would stay here again for a short stay...for the convenience of the location. Camping World right across the street. - kemosabe

I really enjoyed my stay here, a very good value for the cost (apparently a year-round price). It is difficult to find a reasonably-priced RV park this close to the Gilbert/Chandler area. The Manager made me feel right at home.
My stay lasted four months during the summer season. Due to the time of year, it was very quiet. The small RV sites are clustered together among the park models. At this time of year, there were no neighbors in my section except a few park model occupants.
The park is old and the electric meters could use a paint job, but the laundry room, restroom facilities, and community center were kept immaculate. The pool was small but well maintained. - Margo Armstrong

We spent several days in this park, we were in town for an unexpected family emergency and found its location very good for getting around to different areas. The motorhome area is rather tight, we had to sandwich in between mobile homes. However if we went again we would just ask for one in a different location. The site had full hook ups and was long enough for coach and our tow vehicle. It was very level. The full-time neighbors in the mobile homes were not happy to see us there pulling our motorhome in and out. The staff in the park however were very friendly and helpful. This is a good size park with two swimming pools and two clubhouse is filled with activities. - Nan Griff

We stayed here for the entire months of January and February. The $24 a night price reflects the monthly rate plus the flat-rate electricity (unusual, as other places we've stayed at month-at-a-time bill you for actual usage).
Palm Gardens has a "low-end" section called The Village, which is where many of the RVs and single-wide trailers are located. It's convenient to the south clubhouse / pool, but also close to Lindsay Rd. which is noisy. Still, we had plenty of room to get our rig in and out plus to park our toad. We liked that CenturyLink provides short-term DSL service to the site, which was a win-win for us. Less for our cell minutes, and true broadband for streaming Netflix, etc.
You enter only on Main, but can exit either on Main or on Lindsay. Post office is adjacent to park, Fry's grocery /gas a block away, Camping World a few blocks away, Walmart a few miles away, ditto for Costco.
Mail delivery is right to your site, which is nice.
Not as many amenities as the Cal-Am resorts we've stayed in, but it is a nice place to stay, and if we returned to Mesa, we'd probably stay here again. - coffeetime

Clean park, mostly a manufactured home park vs. an RV park. RV sites seemed to be primarily occupied by long term residents. Very clean and neat. Price reflects Passport America discount for a week, plus 2 days at the regular rate. WiFi did not work in our section of the park. Verizon JetPack worked well. We were put in a site between 2 single wide trailers; very quiet location, much quieter than the RV section that was close to a busy street. Laundry facilities were about the cleanest we've seen at any RV park with plenty of machines and reasonable prices. - DRFink
