This is a regional park campground with great desert mountain hiking trails and nearby horseback riding. Truly a camping place, and no seasonal RVers. Huge campsites with picnic tables and fire rings in a nicely cleared personal area. (Rattlesnakes and scorpions seem to stay beyond the rock rimmed campsites. We avoided walking paths to the bath house after dark as rattlers like to wrap themselves around the warm rocks that line the paths.) Amazing views of the White Tank Mountains and overlooking the Valley of the Sun. Easy to get to stores, shops and boutiques in Surprise. Easy access to Goodyear for Spring training games. Sites with sewers may be available if Host sites are not taken, but you'll have to ask, and they add $10 per night. Showers had plenty of space and privacy and were very clean. Campsite water pressure was low but adequate (especially since we showered at the bath house and did not use our washer). Easy in/out at dump station. No Wifi or cable TV, but AT&T cell signal was adequate. Dozens of local antenna channels rcvd from Phoenix, and no problem with satellitte reception on our DISH. No trouble maneuvering or backing in our 40' fifth wheel. Originally we stayed for ten days and returned a few weeks later for another five days. Loved every minute in this quiet, desert retreat. We camped at White Tank Regional Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Very quiet. Always seems to have spaces. Good hiking. Lovely view from the mountain overlooking Surprise AZ. At night that view is all lit up with street lights, but no noise. Will return. We camped at White Tank Regional Park in a Motorhome.

Wonderful campsite! Natural desert setting with variety of trees, cactus, shrubs. Large sites, beautiful sunsets and sunrises. Gates close every evening. Water and electric. Only one shower stall but never had to wait. We camped at White Tank Regional Park in a Motorhome.

This is a county park that is very quiet and secluded. It is small and reservations are recommended. There is one shower in the men's and women's restroom, they are very clean as are the sites, they are well maintained. This is a great park for hiking and exploring the desert, with lots of hiking and off road biking. We camped at White Tank Regional Park in a Travel Trailer.

This was our second stay at the park and they now have the community dump station completed. Our site (32) was fairly flat but some looked like you would need to work the levelers. The Reservation site does have level ratings so take a peak there. Power steady & water well within pressure recommendations for RVs per our monitoring equipment. Paved roads throughout but rolling and one steep but short hill on the way in. Mountain bike and hiking heaven! One of the few places where we saw birds almost immediately after putting our feeders out. It was some sort of public appreciation day and there were all sorts of wildlife and rescue demos going on. 2 nice playgrounds (away form the motor home area) for the visiting grand-kids to play in. Public library just at the entrance gate and, if you're hungry, a swell hot dog cart guy usually hangs out in the parking lot there. Will definitely be back! We camped at White Tank Regional Park in a Motorhome.

Nice park. Unlike others in the area, not as many campers. Dump station is new this year. Nice place for an extended stay. A bit further from Phoenix area events than McDowell or Cave Creek, but just as nice. We camped at White Tank Regional Park in a Motorhome.

We love this park and have been coming here for about 7 different years.The recent addition of power, water and a dump station have made it more popular so now reservations are nearly a must. Not all sites are very level or easy to get into so pay attention to the info on the Maricopa county reservation site. Cell phone service is a little sketchy which is odd given it's location. It is a ways out of town so it is quiet, but it's a ways to stores or laundromats. We camped at White Tank Regional Park in a Fifth Wheel.

This is a terrific park! We live only 40 miles away but decided to spend a week at this beautiful park. The setting amongst the saguaros and mountains is so beautiful. They have many hiking trails. The sites have gravel base, good 50 amps, water and lots of room. We are a 45' motorhome so not all sites are large enough but we had no problem with the site we chose or any of the roads. It only gets a 9 because there is no sewer, but they do have a clean dump station. Sites are very large and clean with table & fire pit. It is a little bit of a drive out here but definitely worth it for the experience. Go slow on the dips on the entrance road. We camped at White Tank Regional Park in a Motorhome.

We have stayed at or visited the other regional parks in the Phoenix area and we like McDowell Mountain Regional park better than this. This is a long drive into the campground past the entrance. The entire park is on the side of a hill, which makes biking down to the nature center/library a problem. Good hikes around the place, with some strenuous hikes and bike trails included. I understand they recently added electricity and water at individual sites which is wonderful. Bathrooms are old, probably original and clean. We camped at White Tank Regional Park in a Fifth Wheel.

I can only reiterate what the previous reviews have stated with a few additions. This is a beautiful and spacious campground. However, there is only only one shower stall in the only restroom that was a bit of a walk from our site. Even though we had four bars on our 3G Verizon phone the data feed was painfully slow and subject to dropped phone calls. You can buy firewood from the camp host but, it's rather high priced at $7/bundle. We had to drive 20 miles one way to a laundromat but hey, it is near the sprawling Phoenix area which is not unusual! Also, be warned that the map incorrectly shows the campground as a one-way but, you will not be able to back into most sites going that direction. We were told by the host that there is no one-way but, they haven't omitted that from the map. There are no extra parking spots if any friends visit. Our nightly fee reflects the inclusion of the gate entry fee. We camped at White Tank Regional Park in a Motorhome.

Folks at check-in gate were friendly, as were the camp hosts. There is now a dump station at this park and all sites in the family campground have electric and water. I believe there are 40 sites within the family campground, but there is only one shower in the mens' room and only one shower in the women's room. There are three toilets in each. It appears that the park is in the process of being upgraded. There are a few sites that have asphalt, but most have gravel. Unfortunately, most of the sites aren't level. Access to the park and the campground is easy, but there are those Arizona dips along the way. There are lots of trails within the park/campground, so lots of places to walk pets, although you have to be watchful of the rattlesnakes and the cactus. There is also a children's play area, making it nice for families. We had to move our Verizon hot spot to different spots in the RV before we found the ideal place for it. It seemed we were just at the outskirts of the tower range. This is one of those parks that tends to have more folks on the weekends, being practically empty during the week. We would stay again if passing through the area. We camped at White Tank Regional Park in a Motorhome.

Watch for the new gravel in the RV campsites. New services have just been installed and the ground is still pretty soft. But otherwise, this place is fabulous. We'd come back in a heartbeat, next time we have to come to Phoenix. We camped at White Tank Regional Park in a Motorhome.

Visited with our new motor home after hearing that they now have power/water masts at every site. Friendly, informative gate keepers and camp hosts. Campground is right in the mix of area trails for hiking, mountain biking. Beautiful area close enough to the Phoenix metropolitan area to see it's cover of unhealthy smog while you breathe the clean air of the Waddel mountains. Will definitely revisit. We camped at White Tank Regional Park in a Motorhome.

A totally wonderful park with great scenery and wonderful trails for hiking and biking. There is NO dump here; so you need to plan ahead when you come. There are water faucets around to fill your tank with wonderful well water. We would definitely come here again. We camped at White Tank Regional Park in a Motorhome.
