I'm really fond of this little park. It's in the middle of the city and the staff is super awesome. Spent most of the past winter here. Spent most of the previous winter here also. The neighborhood is getting better, but my expensive bike was stolen. A fancy lock didn't protect it. Keep an eye out and help make this a safer park. We camped at Apache Palms RV Park in a Motorhome.

It's located literally in the ghetto. You are surrounded by razor wire and hoodlums. The front desk lady is rude and flakey. We hated this place. The staff keeps the park spotless. We camped at Apache Palms RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

At the time of this writing there is evidently a huge party going on in the permanent portion of the park. It is 10 pm, loud music, and no sign of the party abating. There is no staff on duty to deal with it. We need to be up at 4:30 am so my wife can catch a flight. There is no hope of sleep. This is probably the worst park we have camped in.

This was a nice little park with a very helpful and friendly staff. The RV park is kept spotless with each site being policed as soon as a guest leaves. The roads are black top with gravel parking. The gravel is constantly being raked by full time staff to keep things looking nice. The pool was very nice altho we did not use it during our stay. I cannot comment about the safety of the surrounding area but we had no problems during our stay. There is a place to walk your dog which is outside the park but we convinced our dog to do her business on the gravel behind the coach. Naturally we thoroughly cleaned up after her. I felt the rates were in line with the surrounding RV parks but were excessive compared to other, much nicer, parks we have stayed at in other states. I would stay there again. We camped at Apache Palms RV Park in a Motorhome.

We stayed here on our first ever RV trip, so we don't have years of staying other places to compare it to. It felt like we were in a parking lot, as opposed to any 'park'. There are apartments right next door and there is very little ambiance. On the bright side, it was centrally located, although maybe not in the best neighborhood based on the number of sirens we heard all night long. The bathrooms were very clean and always accessible. We camped at Apache Palms RV Park in a Motorhome.

Friendly / helpful staff. I called while en route to advise an after-hours arrival (about 10pm). Staff was helpful; they put us in a corner space so not to disturb too many others with our late arrival. Park was clean but no grass to be found. Additionally, I don't remember seeing any trees. Light Rail construction on roads outside park makes traffic a bit more difficult, but does not effect the park or your stay. A fine place to stay for a night while enjoying MLB (go Angels!) Spring Training about 10 minutes away. We camped at Apache Palms RV Park in a Travel Trailer.

Bad neighborhood, gang bangers cruise park. No staff on duty in the evening. Dangerous neighborhood, police car sirens and police activity all around. Not safe to walk anywhere in the area. Not a safe place for older people or children. Spoke with police officer and he suggested that we could find safer locations in Mesa and Apache Junction. We camped at Apache Palms RV Park in a Motorhome.

If you need to be close to the Phoenix city limits for a visit to Phoenix, this probably will suit your needs ok, but for a recreational camp weekend, I can't say this is the place to go. The surrounding neighborhood is iffy. The campground itself is very clean. The sites are pretty tight especially up near the front. Most likely your front door will be about 10 to 15 ft from your neighbors sewer hose. The office staff were friendly enough. They came around often to sweep gravel off of concrete pads. The grills were kept very clean for sites that had them. Having a picnic table and a grill is considered a premium spot and there are only a few! WiFi only worked for us for one day out of a 3 night stay. The pool looked clean although I didn't use it. Again, if you needed a place to stay in or near the city of Phoenix it was safe enough and clean enough. I can't consider it resort camping however. We camped at Apache Palms RV Park in a Motorhome.

This is a well maintained park with a few big rig sites. Forty foot rigs will fit, no problem. Our 45 footer fits in just a few sites. Must reserve in advance or may not get a site. The location is convenient, but a less desirable location. There has been a lot of construction in the area due to the light rail coming down the street. They are building a light rail station near the entrance. My guess is the park's life is limited, since the property may be very valuable for other uses. The owners are very friendly and helpful. They rake the gravel every day and make sure none is on the pavement. The pool is clean. Overall very well maintained park. Wifi works well if you are near the office. Those sites along the back wall don't receive wifi or barely can receive it. We like this place and found it is the best in the area. There is a park across the street, but we would not stay there.

I would not rate a place a 1, but this is an exception. Arrogant office people, terrible neighborhood, crowded pool (only amenity), and dirty. We camped at Apache Palms RV Park in a Motorhome.

This is a parking lot campground in the middle of a city businesses district. Snowbirds and poor college kids live here. More permanent and seasonal long-term folks than transient campers. Do not stay here if you are on vacation. User Pass would be much nicer. We camped at Apache Palms RV Park in a Travel Trailer.

Very well kept and neat. After someone left a site they came right over and raked the entire area. Close to ASU so great for visiting students. We camped at Apache Palms RV Park in a Motorhome.

Clean park & not trashy at all. Pool & hot tub were clean, but tiny. Getting into back-in spaces was very tight. Took us awhile w/a 40' moho. Forget about the wi-fi & cable. Wi-fi was too weak of a signal to be useable, & cable is a bunch of local channels. Employees are pleasant & helped us get into a spot. Location is a plus. You can hear planes, but as background noise. Traffic not bad either. Whole area was torn up for construction, making for some tight swerving between cones.

Very few big rig sites, tight interior roads, reservations a must. Current road construction for light rail will not be complete till 2008. Park WiFi iffy. City of Tempe offering city wide service soon. Neighbor's bike chained to 5th wheel leg was stolen from the middle of the park, XXX store next door. In spite of surrounding neighborhood location convenient for us but will not return till road construction is complete. Apache Blvd. is only one lane each way and winds back an forth between the construction pylons which could scratch or dent your rig or worse. Temporary access to the park entrance due to construction very rough. Location is in path of airport and pool gets sooty quickly. Park staff quick to clean and maintain though. We camped at Apache Palms RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Made a reservation and arrived late and it was all set up as requested. The WIFI worked well early in the morning then slowed to a crawl as everyone started getting up and logging on. There is, however, a strange rule that they had to "overlook" about having an RV older than 10 years in their park. It seems to be a Tempe city ordinance, but even with a '92 Prevost, they had to make an exception. The staff was nice and the park is very clean. It is also in the middle of town under the approach for the PHX airport. We camped at Apache Palms RV Park in a Motorhome.
