Clean showers & restrooms but quite a way from where we were parked. A lot of great activities & amenities. I liked the entertainment at the tiki bar and we used the whirlpool quite a bit. Parking spaces are quite close though. There was a nice heavy picnic table but it was round and quite large. It was just in the way of our bays & steps and had to step around it every time we stepped out of our rv. It actually stuck out far enough to encroach on our neighbor as it hung over the patio. Very hard to find a close parking space to the laundry. It was geared more for golf cart access for the laundry. And I hate having to buy those laundry cards! I would rather use quarters. A bit too big of a park for me and just not my cup of tea. And it was a bit above our budget. Don't get me wrong, it's a nice place but not for me personally. We camped at Sunflower Resort (55+ park) in a Motorhome.

We stayed here under Passport America. The regular price seemed a bit high though. Most of the sites have park models and are for sale or owned. The sites for RV's were very nice. The dog park is one of the best we have ever seen. We would definitely stay here again. We camped at Sunflower Resort (55+ park) in a Motorhome.

Sunflower is a parking lot with hookups! The RV sites in the back are side by side, front end of motorhome to back end of neighbor. Step out the door and there is your neighbor's car! Small picnic table too close to neighbor to use. Facilities seem nice, but didn't bother to look at as we knew we would not be coming back, even though we plan on spending a month or more in the area next year. Staff was friendly and helpful, sites are just way, way too close! We camped at Sunflower Resort (55+ park) in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

Lots of shopping- right in Surprise.

This is probably not the place for an overnight stay, but then again you will get amenities that are superb even if your sight is lacking. We stayed two months. We were mixed in with permanents. Our sight was spacious and had room for three cars plus our dolly and rv. They offer stained glass, wood working, exercise, silver smithing, billiards, sewing, pc classes and much more during the winter. There was a band playing every night, Bingo on Wednesdays, monthly vendor and craft shows, and fine food served at the tiki bar. The two pools were amazing and so was the hot tub. I could go on about the park. If you are bored in the winter, blame yourself. This is a top notch winter resort that caters to the 55 and older crowd. My only complaint was our neighbor who had a 45 ft rv, a second 25' trailer, a small motorcycle trailer, a couple cars, and a golf cart on his spot. He kept encroaching on us but this isn't a fault of the park. It's a person who was not taught to respect boundaries. I am surprised how many folks lack respect for the property someone else is renting. Again, I can't blame the park for inconsiderate self absorbed people. When I figure the monthly rate and add the amenities, this park is the best park we have stayed in during our ten years of RVing! We camped at Sunflower Resort (55+ park) in a Motorhome.

We stayed there for the entire month of December, and the $32.50 nightly rate includes our electric bill.

This is a very nice park. It was much easier to get our 36' motorhome in and out of our designated spot than another Cal-Am park we stayed at earlier in the year (Good Life in Mesa). The exercise room is really nice, with lots of new equipment. The billiard hall has about a dozen or more very nice tables. The library isn't up to the standards of where we've recently been (Cal-Am's Canyon Vistas Resort in Gold Canyon was almost like an actual library it was so filled with books).

Once you get your site number, you can have CenturyLink hook up a DSL line (for a fee, of course), and thus, have your own dedicated broadband for watching Netflix and other streaming services. We were able to cut back our cell phone's data plan and save money overall.

Be aware that Luke AFB is nearby, and the noise from the F-16's that depart from that base will be VERY noticeable throughout your stay. There is also nearby train tracks, but they weren't much of a problem. Tons of nearby shopping, but be forewarned - all of the nearby Sun City resorts means that traffic is often terrible, and finding a parking space can be challenging. We camped at Sunflower Resort (55+ park) in a Motorhome.

Many residents call this place Party Central. THE place to be. During the busy season Jan - Mar, the Tiki bar is open for business starting at 12 noon, and the drinks stop at 8:00 pm. Bands, and other musical entertainment are supplied Mon - Fri. Every one seems to have an excellent time, and when they have one of their many "theme" nights, the fun atmosphere is over the top. The young "under 55" managers were very friendly, visible, and accessible to the guests. The numerous clubs, and sports available are more than adequate. If I had any complaints, it would be the long term sites all seem to be back-in, on large gravel lots. My living room faced the back side of the M/H behind me, so we kept the curtains closed. This not withstanding, I loved this placed! We camped at Sunflower Resort (55+ park) in a Fifth Wheel.

Found all the people we came into contact with to be very friendly and helpful. Love the city it is in, Surprise. Staff couldn't have been more pleasant and friendly. Facilities are fabulous! Pool area was spectacular. Would definitely come during winter season. We camped at Sunflower Resort (55+ park) in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

Restaurants, shopping, and baseball is all close by.

Very clean and well maintained park. Exceptional amenities. Pull throughs for all travelers were easy to get into but very tight to neighbors. I would stay at this park again even though the price was a bit high but the amenities make it worth it. We camped at Sunflower Resort (55+ park) in a Fifth Wheel.

This is Snowbird Country! We stayed for three nites while visiting friends and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The gravel pull-thru sites were narrow, but we were off walking, enjoying the pool, the Bistro, the Tiki Bar, so didn't stay at our site for long. The wifi was off and on so nothing to brag about, but there is a great free secure computer center in the park that visitors can use. There are numerous amenities and activities- check out their website. It is a gated, secure community of very friendly people from all over the country (and Canada). We received the Passport Club rates, but they are not in effect in high season. We will be back! We camped at Sunflower Resort (55+ park) in a Travel Trailer.

This is a resort with all the amenities you can think of. They have pools, hot tubs, tennis, horseshoes, shuffle board, sewing, hiking, biking, live entertainment, food, etc. The sites do not have any grass, only pea gravel. The regular sites have all hook ups at the rear so you will need extra long hoses. They do have regular pull through sites where the hook ups are centrally located. The sites are level, but are close to each other. The WiFi is not all that great, and regular sites need to pay for cable, but antenna works just fine. We camped at Sunflower Resort (55+ park) in a Fifth Wheel.

Price is Monthly Rate. Great place to spend the winter. Lots of Amenities, from lighted Pickle Ball courts to 2 heated pools, several hot tubs. Nightly music during week. You can either join the fun or relax. They offer a Sept to Dec promo on RV sites mixed in with resident guests. Love this place. We camped at Sunflower Resort (55+ park) in a Fifth Wheel.

Beautiful campground. Mostly park models for owners. Transient area is located in southeast back of park. As previously stated, sites are opposing pull throughs. Very clean with good power and water. Lots of activities to keep you busy. Transient guests can partake as much or as little as they wish. Very clean laundry room with many washers/ dryers. Surprise is a great place with lots to do and places to see. Restaurants abound. We were here for Spring Training. We camped at Sunflower Resort (55+ park) in a Motorhome.

Noisy! Park is located under the training path for F16 jets. Road construction in front of the park entrance made tough entering and exiting. Nice dog walking area but no play area. I thought it was a little pricey for overnighters. We stayed a week. $305 plus 12%tax. We camped at Sunflower Resort (55+ park) in a Fifth Wheel.

Rate paid is an approximate average for our stay of a couple of months here. Great place, great people, great staff and guests. (age trend would be north of 70). I figure almost all northern snowbirds. Just incredible facilities and activities. As noted it is mostly park models, but a lot of those occupants are current or former RVers. Experienced long term and transient sites and both are fine. As you might imagine, the long term sites are somewhat nicer arranged for more privacy but aren't as easy to get into and out of. Transients are easy-in easy-out and includes cable and electric. They are close to one of the dog walk areas and dumpsters. Only have 2 negatives worth writing about. The dog walk areas are pretty sad and a looong way from most of the sites. Facilities don't include a library; which, I gather was done away with to upgrade the fitness center (which like everything else is very very nice). But there is an excellent public library a few miles away (free card on showing local address). We camped at Sunflower Resort (55+ park) in a Motorhome.
