We stayed here while my husband worked in LaGrange for 5 weeks. The monthly fee was $280 + electric which we felt was a great deal in comparision to other places we've stayed that did not have all the amenities this place does. Overall we really enjoyed our stay. Owners are very friendly, place is quiet and convenient to shopping. My biggest complaint is the conditions of the grounds (pad sites and roads). Our site had so many goathead/grass burs that it was impossible to keep from tracking them in our rig. Stepping on those barefoot inside the RV is not pleasant and for 5 weeks it was super annoying, The roads and pads are gravel and not level. There are a lot of long-term residents here and some questionable looking rigs. Wi-Fi worked great the entire time. We would stay again but would love to see them improve the grounds conditions.

This park was suitable for a short term stay. The other reviews about the Wi-Fi are correct. They have problems with the signal making it to the sites, therefore you must be up at the clubhouse to obtain the signal. They offer a free shuttle bus to Tombstone, which is nice so you don't have to find parking. Cable TV was acceptable. Site connections are pretty far from the rigs, hope you have long cords for everything. Staff was very friendly and helpful. This is an older park and the electrical is old too. We had problems obtaining full 30 amps from the power pole. If you want 50 amps, they only have a handful of sites so be sure to book early for them. You do hear quite a bit of road noise as cars speed by. On a positive note, of the few campgrounds in the town of Tombstone, this one appeared the best. If you don't mind driving further from the town, you will find much nicer ones in Benson.

Stayed here overnight, didn't even disconnect from our truck. Sites are VERY tight and not long enough. Management was nice and tried to accommodate our length so we didn't have to disconnect by parking us at the back where our truck could extend into the pathway without blocking someone in. Barely had enough room to put our slides out without hitting the little tree and had to move the picnic table. We had a nosy and mean neighbor whom seemed irritated we kept our truck running while trying to fit in the tight spot. Cable TV was a joke: every channel came in snowy. We got better signal with our antenna. Wi-Fi worked well. It was a suitable place for an overnight stay, would definitely not stay here any longer.

We stayed here on our way to Arizona, we didn't even unhook from the truck. From our short visit we can say that their cable and Wi-Fi were very good. Sites were easy to get in & out of and ample long. Our rig, including the truck, is just under 60'. We had no power issues, seemed to get the correct amount of power from the pole. We filled our propane bottles here and their rates were pretty reasonable: $24 for 30lb bottle. I honestly felt $35 for just an overnight stay was a bit high but you don't get many options out in the middle of now where. Not many more choices past Van Horn until you get to El Paso.

We really enjoyed this park. We are 30 something campers and had a difficult time finding a park in the Phoenix area that was NOT a 55+ park. Destiny was one of three we found. The park is very large and we loved all the citrus trees. You are encouraged to pick them which made nice lemonade and grapefruit juice each day. The park power at this park was GREAT!! Sites were plenty wide and long (our rig plus truck comes to just under 60'). Loved how all sites were paved and level, made set up a breeze. Laundry room was fine. We didn't try the pool area but it looked lovely. Great views of the mountains around you. The landscaping was nice, saw lots of green places for being in the desert. While you may be a bit far from the main Phoenix attractions, there is a nice shopping area with a Wal-Mart, Safeway, banks and lots of shops and dining just one exit east. The only other thing this campground could use is cable TV, because we hate dealing with our satellite. We would definitely stay here again and recommend it to others. We saw other parks nearby and many looked very desolate and nothing to write home about. We took lots of pictures of this park and were so happy with our stay.

We stayed here 3 nights and they had a special 3 nights for price of 2. We really enjoyed this park. Would have given it a 10, but we reserve that perfect score for park with no power issues. We have 30 amp and were never really drawing the entire 30 amps from the pole. We tried using our Autoformer but it bumped the power up too much for the rig. So we had to be careful to watch our power usage here. Otherwise, the views were great, pool and hot tub were nice, staff was friendly, free shuttle to casino just a few minutes away. Laundry room was nice but seemed high on the washer fee at $3.00 a small load. We would stay here again and recommend it to others.

We stayed here on a monthly rate using 50 amp. Rate was $497/mo and it included unmetered electricity. This is a membership private park. They do have a public area that non members can use; however, reservations can not be made for these—it's first come. The park is clean, well maintained. Very scenic with the rivers running around it. Park staff leaves much to be desired. I would have given this park a higher rating had their staff actually enforced their rules and respected their paying guests. On 10/10/09 the park rented out a building in the park by the public campsites to a party with a very loud DJ. The booming base of the music literally vibrated the camper. Sheriff on hand at the party measured the decibels at 82 but couldn't shut it down unless it was over 85. So management would have to do something, which they didn't. Quiet time for the park is 10pm. They allowed the party and vibrating base to continue until 1 am, expecting their paying RVers to tolerate such a nuisance until that late in the night. Many of our neighbors were equally annoyed. I wouldn't suggest ever paying to become a member of Ocean Canyon Properties when you will be asked to tolerate such special events. And if you are not a member and are thinking of staying nightly, I would avoid the park on Saturday nights when they seem to book parties.

Website said "expect to be impressed", however we were sadly disappointed. The park's not bad looking for west Texas. But depending on what site they put you in, you might have some trees and you might not. They have an indoor pool along with cable and WIFI that worked well (however only 8 minutes are Free then you have to pay). The first site they gave us was in a nice location and amply wide. However after getting everything all set up, we realized the breaker kept blowing for the AC. After working with this for several hours in the 100 degree heat, we determined the camper wasn't getting enough power from the park. We were in a 30 amp site, so the park kindly moved us to a 50 amp site. But we were told to not get to attached to this site, as it was temporary until another monthly site would come available. This site worked the first night, but only by keeping our AC on low. Then the next day, once we got into the heat of the day, the breaker blew again. It wouldn't even work on low. We tested the park power and once again it had dropped below the minimum voltage needed to run the AC. After complaining to the park, they suggested we leave since there was nothing they could to do for us. After first telling us that no one else was having these problem, they eventually told us they had been having problems with the power company not supplying enough power to run all their sites on a full load in the heat of the day. So depending on where you are parked, you might get enough power to run your AC and you might not.

The park was small and near the highway, so you hear highway noise, but it's still an acceptable place to stay for a weekend (I've seen worse!). Their power and cable work well so we were happy. The scenery at the park, on the other hand, left much to be desired. But we traveled around to make up for it. The park hosts were very friendly and welcoming. Pool was small but and not open when we visited in May. They have a nice patio with rocking chairs and swings around their club house.

We loved this park. Sites were plenty wide, and concrete. It was very clean and staff were very friendly in helping find things to do in the area. Had a picnic table at site which was clean and in good shape. Wonderful views with the lake all around you. Sunsets were beautiful—know why their name is Sunset Point. Quick and easy to get into town for activities or shopping. When we visited the lake was down so you couldn't use their boat dock.

We stayed here on a monthly rate so unsure on their nightly rate. Their monthly sites were booked so they placed us in their Rally area. We paid $375 and that included our electricity. We stayed for a month, but had planned on staying longer until we were disappointed with how they handled loud and disruptive guests. They allow tent campers to camp in the RV area of the park, instead of in the tent area. They were in the site next to us and heard voices all night since they have no rig to go inside. Their actual long-term monthly sites are nice and wide in the back of the park. But the Rally area sites are very narrow, and they pack them in like sardines. You have barely enough room to open your awning much less an enjoyable patio area. We could never get their Wi-Fi to work at our site, we had to use it at the pool area to get signal. The pros about the park are their pools are fun and clean and we loved all the activites they had each weekend. The fishing pond was neat too.
