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

Be aware of the 14-day cancellation fee. We had a reservation for five nights; asked to change it to four when we arrived but too late, had to pay for five. Park is small with sites crammed in everywhere; some are wider than others. Access to sites is not a problem as long as you pay attention to where you were going. Restrooms, pool and the grounds in general are well-maintained. Location is convenient to any place in Tempe, and even downtown Phoenix since the light rail station is across the street from the park. Some airplane noise when the planes take off to the east, but generally quiet at night. - Ray Z

Our fourth spring stay at Apache Palms has remained remarkably consistent. The RV park is well maintained and the management is very friendly and accommodating. The park has revamped its WiFi with several transmission locations. When the WiFi worked, it was excellent; however, during our stay the company that actually provides the Internet service was constantly attempting to get the system to work reliably. On another note, more security seems to be in place at Apache Palms and that is much appreciated.
The laundry and shower areas are well maintained. The same can be said for the pool and spa areas. Even though the pool is relatively small, the water temperature is perfect for just about any external temperature.
What my wife and I look forward to is camaraderie among the people staying here. In the spring, many are visiting the area for spring training baseball, so you see banners supporting the Giants, Angels, Cubs, etc. Unlike other venues we've been to recently, the short term and long term occupants are very congenial.
Hopefully we'll be back again next year! - Professor Ken

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

This was a convenient campground for visiting friends and family in the area. As a result, we did not spend much time there. Clean. It appears that there are mostly permanent or semi-permanent residents. Interior roads are navigable, but can be a bit tight even for a 35' motorhome. Owner wonderful and very helpful. We would not hesitate to stay here in the future. - dandd

This place is a gem! We are relocating for a job to the Phoenix area from Indiana. I checked out at least 15 places online where I could park our 33' travel trailer long term while I found a rental house and my wife was packing in Indiana. I am so lucky to have found Green Acres. I visited several of the other places I had looked into and this was hands down the best choice for short or long term stays in Mesa. There are several locations that claim to be RV Campgrounds but are either an old motel that was partially torn down or an aging mobile home park that has vacant spots between extremely run down ancient mobile homes, very scary. First of all, for Green Acres the facilities and grounds are spotless with many nice touches that make it feel like home. The staff is extremely accommodating but very firm on making sure things are kept clean and rules followed. The laundry facilities are very usable and next to the pool that has a misting system over a covered seating area...just right for waiting on the dryer. The spots are small but adequate and as expected with this being so close and accessible to everything including the metro rail system. There is an amazing Thai restaurant and Vietnamese bakery just across the street. I would stay here again and would recommend it for anyone looking for a clean, value based, comfortable place to stay while in the valley. Only reason why I gave the bathrooms a 4 and not a 5 is that while house like nice and extremely clean they do not have AC so unless you go first thing in the morning they can be hot in the summer. - Dodgeboy64

Older park in town, sites are very closely packed together. Best selling point is the location, less than a block from Safeway and a stop on the light rail system that goes right into downtown Phoenix, Cubs stadium within a mile. Big rigs would have an issue. I'm little, so I'll be back! - ldukeb

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

This manufactured home park is central to everything in the Mesa and Phoenix area in our opinion. This is our third time here. Last time was three years ago. There are many many more sites available to RVers because of the aging population here. Many of the mobiles have been dismantled and as a result the sites are huge!! The people are very friendly. The two swimming pools are well maintained as is the very large hot tub. The roads are very wide and are asphalt. This is a very easy park to negotiate to the sites. Just check the site before you drive in as there may be some left over metal from the previous home but the park has tried to clean the sites up. Water, sewer, and electric are included. The price reflects the monthly rate divided by 30. The nightly rate is around $30 a night. This is the best deal that we have found in the area and will come back whenever we are in Arizona. - Rib

This is a 55 + park that indicates RV's welcome. We spent two weeks here and were comfortable and had the use of the pool. Wi-Fi is not advertised but I was able to pick it up. The garbage is only picked up once per week which is fine if you are in a park model but not good enough for an RV. No dumpsters available. Pleasant surroundings easy access to the Mesa/Phoenix area. Would not stay here again just not our style. - Rib

I parked my new 32' Motorhome here from January through April. The rate I paid was a monthly rate. Although we kept the RV there (hooked up), I did not stay there full time but we were in and out all winter. I really enjoyed my stay there. The managers were great to me and very accommodating my entire stay and went out of their way to greet us every time we arrived. The management worked 7 days a week making improvements to the park. They were diligently working on removing the remaining mobile homes to make it entirely an RV park. I believe when I left there were only maybe 3 mobile homes left to remove. They have plans for even more improvements by next season. Finally, I cannot finish without saying how friendly all the campers were in the park and we have made some good friends. - Dino H

The park is being transitioned from modular homes to RV's only. The park is understaffed for amount of activity occurring. Maintenance staff is too busy with modular home removal to tend to day-to-day tasks such as pool and bathroom cleaning. Bathrooms has disgusting musty smell and lack ventilation and proper lighting. Molly Maid cleans once weekly. One stool and one shower per sex. No dressing area for shower, so you must lock the main entry door to have any privacy when showering. Bathroom was feasibly adequate when this was a modular home park, but as an RV park, its usage will increase and accommodation need to be upgraded. Office is closed on the weekends, and the men's room is often without toilet paper over the weekend. There appears to be issues with the sewer system, and the smell of sewer gasses drifts through the park from time to time. No picnic tables. No cable TV, but ample over-the-air channels and great satellite reception. Wi-Fi works most of the time on the office porch only. Pool is attractive but not maintained. There was dirt, palm fronds, debris, and a hand towel at the bottom of the pool the entire month we stayed. One table at pool with 4 mismatched chairs. No loungers. Sites are decent size. There are cement patios, rigs park on gravel. There are gaps between the various cement patios/parking and many vary in height. Lots of cement forms/footings from modular homes which serve no purpose now. Many orange and palm trees in park. Many wild parrots live in trees. Large grassy area between pool; and road for dogs, but it is not fenced and road traffic is possible hazard. Park has potential, and manager has big plans. It will be a long haul to make this a high quality resort. - RagTopDay

Did we come at a bad time? Reservation system is ridiculous. Long "application", include a picture of your dog and rig? And a non-refundable $25 deposit (not applied to your stay)? Then, if accepted, pay for your full stay in advance. Only one shower/restroom which was filthy and lights didn't work. WiFi only at office. No cable TV. No place for pets to play. If you are looking for a spot in Scottsdale, keep looking. - CCR

I suspect this is a great park in the winter for snowbirds. But for an RV in the summer: not so good. Electricity was not good. I wasn't getting full 50amps and you need every bit of it when it's 110 degrees. Pool and clubhouse was very nice but the AC in the gameroom was very bad. - LEB2

I would not recommend this resort during the summer months, as the pool was like bath water with debris falling from the palm trees into the pool. The site size is very very tight. No grass anywhere to dogs to walk on. People are unfriendly. Said "Good morning" to everyone we passed on the streets, no one person acknowledged. Especially, I said "Hello" to a lady riding a bike, she did not respond. However, as we were walking our two dogs towards the lake area, she yelled out that we are not permitted to walk dogs in this area, only on the perimeter of the property. The perimeter was asphalt and concrete. The website is very deceiving. It is in a very bad looking neighborhood. - The Sconyers and their boys

55+ park, but allows 38+. One of the best parks we have ever parked our 40' coach. We are insurance property adjusters and stay at many parks across the nation. Roadrunner has a 1st class staff and park. Always friendly and accommodating. The park is sparkling clean and friendly residents. We were sad to leave, and know we will stay there again when back in the area. Kim and Kathy are so friendly and helpful. We call Roadrunner 'Pleasantville'. Must visit and treat yourself to an awesome time. Great location to many activities, but quiet and away from traffic. Security guard on duty. Thank you Roadrunner - you are top of our list of great places to park! - Nancy DJ

You can only make reservations by email. Cash or credit card are not accepted. This is a"gold mine" as Scottsdale has lacked for RV parks.They were in the processing of moving trailer park full timers out and putting in RV folks at 4 times the rate. Consequently it was messy and unkept. Location excellent for Scottsdale and ASU. - grey wolf

Stayed here in early May 2014. Great, friendly host. Grass, trees, and shade. Park is in a great location and in walking distance to Old Town Scottsdale. - SB Jim
Apr 2013 - $45.00
This park is all about location--an easy walk to old town and eating. The park is very compact which makes it difficult to back into your site--no pull throughs. The managers will help you, and you will get it done. Once you are in, the spacing and parking are decent. Because of this I would not recommend this park for a short stay unless you are very small and maneuverable. Good water, power and fast Wi-Fi. Some grass, flowers, and trees. I like the park a lot. No credit cards accepted. - rjallred

We stayed here for a few days for Angels spring training baseball. From their website, this place looks pretty good so decided to give it a try. Don't be fooled, it looks really nothing like website shows, kind of deceptive. The sites are mingled in with double and single wide trailers, many of which have seen their days. The surrounding area is not the best either. Some of the positives are a very nice pool / spa, clubhouse & gym. Plenty of room at the sites. At best, use this spot as a home base to check out the surrounding areas. We would not stay here again. - kirksumida

This RV resort is convenient to the freeway bypass and provides easy access to the Phoenix, AZ area. The resort is undergoing changes, moving from a mobile home park into an RV resort and vacation retreat. The sites are mingled with Mobile Homes and do provide total hookups. The community access is gate controlled, the amenities offered are clean and the staff is very helpful and friendly. This is a good stop, for overnight or long term, worth the effort. Just know it is a bit more than an RV resort, at least for now. - SilverBear

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 like a small park, this fits the bill, spaces are normal size which is not too terribly wide but fine for me. Friendly staff and campers, some landscaping, excellent wifi, local cable channels, clean laundry and restrooms, not terribly noisy since road noise is buffeted by the motorcycle shop out front. Icing on the cake is the Camping World directly across the street, a good repair shop a block away, a nice walking/bike path along the canal out the back gate and very good mass transit. Long term visitors book by July, I was just 2 nights and was able to call the day before and get a site. I'd make this my go-to park when I'm in Mesa. - abbyarts

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
