Since we only stayed a couple of weeks, we were in the transition area but enjoyed the total experience. There are many amenities such as 2 pool s and water exercise options, wood working area, sewing and crafts area, ballroom for shows and plays (we attended a dinner and show - great food), a place to wash your car, pickle ball and Bocci courts to name a few. We camped at Sunflower Resort (55+ park) in a Motorhome.

There is alot to do in this park... you just need to figure out your interests. The pull through sites are large enough to unhook and hook up your car which was nice. Make reservations early. They start taking short term (under 3 months) in September.

We stayed here the last two nights of January, and felt lucky to find a spot in the middle of winter, the busy season for the parts of Arizona that are in the lower elevations. We were given a choice of the regular overnight RV spots or the overflow, and we chose the overflow. It was electric and water in the parking lot behind the main hall, but it was perfect for us. Much cheaper per night (rate reflects the overflow site rate), a better fit and easier to get into with our 45' fifth wheel, and VERY close to all the amenities. There were multiple bathrooms located around the common areas, and the showers were clean and well-kept. Lots of activities, both indoor and outdoor, if you choose to participate. The tiki area served drinks and had live entertainment both nights we were there, and they offer a small selection of food with a daily special. It was a nice spot to stay, and everyone we encountered was very friendly. The staff bent over backward for us, and we can't say enough good things about them. We would stay here again when in the Phoenix area - which we were because we were visiting friends. We did hear the jets from the air base, but they didn't bother us, we love to hear the sound of freedom. There was a paid concert one of the nights we were there, and things were busy and the parking lot full, but that goes with the territory. We were asked to move our truck over a few spots so it would be out of the way and provide more parking, and that was fine. This is a 55+ park that caters to snowbirds and annual owners, but the overnighters are included and made to feel welcome. We camped at Sunflower Resort (55+ park) in a Fifth Wheel.

Staff friendly and helpful. They did park us in the back lot but we enjoy being away from the main area and found the site easy to access and quiet. Fifth wheel parked beside us and connected to our sewer connection but we were able to back in to an open site and dump before we left.

Nice park and friendly people. We do not mind having a bit of a walk to reach the main buildings. We also did not mind parking by the recycling bins.

The park has a nice dog walk area. We are not likely to be in this area again but if we did return we would be happy to stay here again for a few days. We camped at Sunflower Resort (55+ park) in a Motorhome.

Hard place to rate - the pool, common areas, amenities and activities are first rate, but the actual camp sites are awful. The sites are long, but you are packed very tight side to side. Wifi was unusably slow. It wasn't bad for an overnight with the Passport America discount. I encountered a lot of permanent residents and they were all very friendly. We camped at Sunflower Resort (55+ park) in a Motorhome.

They do not have "true 50 amp" service. The breaker is old and kept losing a "leg". People in the motorhome next to us had their inverter fried because of it. Park is old and has mostly park models. The true RV section is in the back and the sites are gravel with a small patio pad. WiFi was unusable. We camped at Sunflower Resort (55+ park) in a Motorhome.

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.

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.

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.
