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.

This is a massive resort comprised of mostly park model units. There is a small area for short term stays. The spaces are gravel with concrete patios. The area is designed to have opposite entry pull thrus. We pulled all the way into ours, but the RV next to us did not. Our slide outs were almost touching. This was the only negative to this resort. It is beautiful. While this is still the off season they have many activities for their residents in-season. The pool area was one of the nicest we have seen. The water was perfect and the pool area was large and very nice. We would be very happy to stay here again. We camped at Sunflower Resort (55+ park) in a Motorhome.

We have stayed here, because we have friends in the area. It is a very large park with the majority being permanent owners. They do have an area for transient customers which is okay. We don't participate in the activities, but they do have a lot going on in the season. We stayed overnight in the summer, and it was fine for an overnighter. We definitely would sty here again.

This is a nice park with great facilities. Lots of activities if you want to get involved. Pools, hot tubs, steam room, exercise room. You name it and they probably have it. Nice pickle ball courts, also. If you are traveling to the area for medical reasons it is close to the Del Webb hospital and medical facilities. The amount paid per night is the Passport America rate which is 1/2 price. We would stay here again. The draw back to this park is there is only a small strip at the back of the park to walk dogs. No fenced area to let them off leash and there are lots of dogs in this park. A lot of park models, also. We camped at Sunflower Resort (55+ park) in a Travel Trailer.

We stayed here for a month and loved it. They call themselves "the friendly park" and it's true. We were made to feel welcome by all and encouraged to participate in all of the activities. There are tons of activities to pick from. It's an over "55" park, so it's not for children unless they are visiting. Everything about this park is great. If you are just staying for a few days you will get a spot in the back, which is fine. Otherwise you are mixed in with the park models. That's fine too unless you are a big rig and you are being placed between two park models. They have someone help you but it's still tight until you get in. The rate reflected is for a monthly stay. We camped at Sunflower Resort (55+ park) in a Fifth Wheel.

Great +55 park for a week, month, or longer. Monthly pull through sites on dirt with large concrete slabs. Cable TV , Wi-fi strong. Resort type pools, and everything you want or need. Live music and dancing by pool. Pickleball, tennis, lawn bowling, chip and putt golf. Real friendly atmosphere. Price shows 3 month rate. We camped at Sunflower Resort (55+ park) in a Fifth Wheel.

This is an older park with mostly park models and an older population. They fit us in between park models but would have liked to have one of the RV sites closer to the fence and wash in the back just for RVer company. Good off leash in the dry wash but it seems few pick up after their pets so be careful till you get further out. The Wi-Fi is horrible and even going to the office area does not help. Neither does the "computer club" who kept insisting I pay $10 to join but still could not help. Beware. They insist on name tags and many have a chest full. Laundry is good but very busy so it can be a challenge to get washers or dryers. Would only consider a short stay. We camped at Sunflower Resort (55+ park) in a Fifth Wheel.

We had a 3 nights free pass from The Rally, and stayed longer. Regular rate is ridiculous $55. They gave us 10% GS rate and then PA rate kicked in for 50% on April 1st. As nice as the amenities are here, it's too pricey. We liked the "transient" area in the back because it has cable tv hookups. Road noise wasn't that bad, but you get jets flying over. As mentioned before, they have the stupid rip-off card system in the laundryroom. Giving this park a high score for the very nice pools, spa and fitness room, plus free cable, which is hard to find in Phoenix. We camped at Sunflower Resort (55+ park) in a Motorhome.

Public areas are well maintained, however some park models are showing their age, a few look not maintained at all. Sites are large, level with concrete pads. Residents very friendly, lots of activities. All utilities worked well. We were given a "3 free night" coupon at Good Sam Rally, so not sure what their rates really are. Have "no pet" areas which is very nice, however we were told the owners may change this in the near future. Surprise is a very high density area, and traffic was bad. We stayed in middle of park, but still heard traffic. Laundry was very nice and clean, but they have a pre-paid card system to pay for both wash and dry. Pre-paid card costs $2, and the minimum purchase is $5, all nonrefundable. Washer and dryers cost $1.25 each, so if you are only doing one load, you are donating $2.50 to the pre-paid card company: quite outrageous. I suppose most residents have their own washers/dryers, so this is just a rip off to short stay people. We would not stay again. We camped at Sunflower Resort (55+ park) in a Motorhome.

Although we stayed only 4 nights when asked they put us in a nice site between park models. Level with a large concrete pad. Much better than the transient sites on the dirt next to the dog walk area. We could not get the wifi to connect. Too expensive for what it is. As others have said, this is a park for long term stay. Cable TV not available for short timers but we received all major networks via antenna. All facilities seemed excellent: pool, snack bar, bocce ball, tennis, etc. We camped at Sunflower Resort (55+ park) in a Travel Trailer.
