Huge campground in the desert outside Casa Grande, literally between I-8 and 10. Biggest sites we have very seen, tons of room. Would have given it a 9 or 10 except no pool, hot tub and Wi-Fi seldom works. You are in the desert without shade so you really need some kind of pool to cool off. Also you have to pay for the showers, at that price one feels "nickeled and dimed" over this. Otherwise, one of our favorite camps. The nearby highways and trains did not really bother us. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Very friendly staff. Large sites, but not level. Large tables at every site. Wi-Fi is free and it works well. They escort you to the site which makes it easy, and we had a pull-through. This is desert landscape and very well taken care of, but a little dusty. There is an active train track and you can hear it at night. Did not hear noise from the highway. We would stay here again. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
We have stayed at this park 2 times as a one-night stopover. Pull through spaces are convenient and surprisingly, although this park is at the intersection of I-10, I-8, and a railroad, it is quiet at night. The park is quite large and somewhat confusingly laid out but they always guide you to your site. Typical Sonoran desert vegetation so virtually no shade. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Got three okays to park our truck camper there to visit Phoenix. But after unloading it an employee said that this was not allowed. Very disappointed in their lack of professionalism. Nice desert park but we will not go there again We camped here in a Truck Camper.
Very easy access off the highway and really large spaces for a change from the regular RV parks. Nice and friendly staff and bought a replacement hose at the store and was inexpensively priced. Would definitely stay here again. Really nice RV park. We camped here in a Motorhome.
The spaces are large. The staff is friendly and helpful. The laundry facilities were very clean and in good working order. They are very pet friendly and had no problem with the 5 dogs who travel with me. I really enjoyed staying in this park and will undoubtedly stay there again sometime. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
They lie. AFTER you've paid, you are told that due to the park's lousy Wi-Fi system, people can rarely get on. You get a paper instructing you to take your dog to their dog park area. When I called to ask where that was, they said there wasn't one and that they had never said there was. I read the paragraph from the paper I had just received saying that pets should use the available pet area. After I read them the correction (from their paperwork) the woman said, "Well, don't you read well!" in a sarcastic sing-song voice! Unbelievable! I wasn't here to get into an elementary school type argument, I just wanted to know where to take my dog. Also, there is NO Good Sam discount, even though that is advertised also. We asked for an immediate refund. They finally, after several more loud arguments, in front of both customers and workers, gave us all of our money back. Both of the women were yelling at once, a few different times. Does the owner have any idea how bad these workers treat their guests? We had been here 20 minutes. As we were leaving, a close neighbor came out and said, "The two gray haired ladies?" He said, "You don't want to get on their bad side!" Our first and only visit with another patron. He said he couldn't wait until his month was over. He said they put notices on your door: "Your dog barked last night; you need to trim the shrub". He said he wasn't paying that much money to do their landscaping. The camp is in between two loud interstates and train tracks. If you get stuck here, go to Wal-Mart and buy hearing aids: you're going to need them. I would suggest wearing them when you go into the office also. Please notice that the last 3 reviews mention the worker's attitudes. If those women had just acted "normal", even bored, but no: they act as if the you are their enemy. I would like to warn you that if you stay in this resort, you'll be wanting a refund within 24 hours. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Very noisy location next to two Interstates: I-10 (200ft) & I-8 (300ft) and one railroad track (1/4 mile). The noise level here is the worst so far. The park owners NO LONGER offer ATV access to the trail head from within the park! The water here is really poor condition; consider tanking up somewhere else. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Stayed for 3 nights, yes the place is gravel, many are. Staff are reasonably friendly, that's OK. WiFi was probably the best we have had for quite awhile. Lots of room between sites, I like that. Highway noise yes, but we have stayed in many where it is much worse. I wouldn't want to make this a long term stay, but would stay again for a few nights. Close to good shopping in Casa Grande without being in the middle of it. They could use some concrete pads at all sites instead of just their "premium" sites at $40.00 a night. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
I agree with most of the other comments. You definitely hear highway and train noise. The park could be improved by the use of more gravel on the roadways and sites. We were here during a bad rainstorm and the place was a nightmare. The Wi-Fi worked fine, but we were 50' from the transmitter. The friendliness of the staff was a hit or miss proposition. Like many parks, you run into the occasional cranky workers and complaining tenants. Probably would not stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
If you like camping in a desert environment, then this is the campground for you. The campsites are spacious but dry and dusty. Do not put out your awning as there are frequent dust devils during the daylight hours. The Wi-Fi is spotty at best and only seemed to work in the morning hours. You will definitely need to have or rent a vehicle to get around Casa Grande. Given the fact that there is really nothing else in the area any better; we probably would reluctantly stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We like desert campgrounds and this is one. What we don't like is highway noise, train noise, and the smell. There must be cattle lots all around. Kept waking up because of the smell. They advertise free WiFi and it is worth exactly what you pay for it. Was able to connect, but kept dropping out and was unusable. NEVER AGAIN We camped here in a Motorhome.
$14 rate is based on $410/month. We're full timers and we had spent several months boon docking and staying in "remote" campgrounds (30+ miles from a city with major stores), when we decided that we wanted to be closer to a decent-sized city. We made our reservation here for the month of February and enjoyed it so much, we extended through the month of March. While there are not lots of planned activities here, we enjoyed walking in the desert, taking photos and going to the movies. Lots of good restaurants and the major stores nearby (Wal-Mart, Best Buy, Michael's, etc.) Was there dust (as previous poster mentioned? Yes, on the 3 or 4 windy days we had. Are there snakes? Yes, but we didn't personally see any. (This IS the desert, after all, and caution is always advised.) The CG is nicely laid out and the long-term sites have plenty of room between them. You'll hear some interstate noise and an occasional train. If you want Wi-Fi, you'll probably have to go to the office, as the signal is kind of weak. (I used my Verizon card.) We'll probably spend another month (or two) here next winter. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
If circumstances had not prevented us from doing so, we would have moved after the 2nd day. If you love dust, this is the place to be. The wireless was lousy and the only choice for TV was a satellite dish or antenna. No activities were offered. Very unattractive landscaping. At the intersection of I-8 and I-10. Very near the desert so if you like snakes and vermin, this is the place for you. Dogs in the park were being bitten by rattlesnakes. The only attraction is the Casa Grande Ruins, 20 miles away. Nothing else to do in this town. The only redeeming quality about this park is that the sites are wide and in a circle so rigs are not jammed in on top of each other in a straight line. I repeat, dust, dust, dust. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
I had a great stay here!! The staff was very friendly and made me feel welcome. Everyone in the campground was very nice and I did not have a bad time. All the facilities were very clean and well maintained. I can't wait to come back. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We stayed overnight while en route to Las Vegas. The desk employee was very friendly and handled our check-in quickly. We were escorted to our site, which was good because we arrived after dark and this place is huge! It would be easy to get lost without the park map. All of the interior roads and sites are dirt/gravel, but they are well maintained. The park lay out is in such a manner that there is lots of room between sites. The sites are arranged in a random pattern and are not your typical "cookie cutter" side-by-side arrangement. Very nice to have so much room. You can hear traffic noise because you are located at the intersection of Interstate Highways 8 and 10. You can also hear the train that passes nearby. The noise did not bother me, but it annoyed my wife enough that she slept with ear plugs. We did not use the showers or bathrooms. The Wi-Fi signal was a little weak at our site, but it worked well. This is a good overnight park that we will use again. The friendly folks that run it help make up for the highway noise. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We are staying here a month. Good access to this area of AZ, but noisy due to being between I8 and I10, plus a railroad. Park roads and sites are all dirt/stone so can be muddy if it rains, and dusty if windy. We are in the desert. Nice thing is the sites are irregular, not the usual parallel to each other. Sites are large. Office workers are friendly. Not a lot of organized activities. No charge to wash units but this has to be done in one location close to office. We would stay here again. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Let us check in early. A little noisy because of the freeway but well kept. Staff very helpful and suggested a couple of places to get service work done. Wi-Fi adequate but not the best. Plan to stay the rest of the week. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is the desert! If you are looking for an upscale resort this is not for you. There are a lot of friendly folks, wide open spaces, and freedom you won't find at other parks. On the downside you are surrounded by I-10 & I-8 along with trains that roll on endlessly. If you can block these out you'll enjoy the park. We stayed here a month. We would stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We stayed here overnight. Staff was friendly and stayed late in order to check us in and escort us to the site. The road and sites are dirt and the site was not even close to being level. The pull-through site was narrow, awkward and shared with another fifth wheel. The electrical, sewer, water and cable was easily accessible. The campground is surrounded by I-10, I-8 and railroad tracks. Noise could be a problem for light sleepers. No landscape to mention. Wind was blowing and dust covered everything. Probably would not stay here again. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This campground is a little on the rough side. The entrance road is paved but, after you get past the administration building, the place consists of dusty, dirt roads filled with pot holes. Sites are not level and consist of dirt with large gravel filling in the low spots. Sites are mostly back-ins, but there are some cresent-shaped pull-throughs. This is the desert, but the entire place doesn't really have one bit of landscaping. Be careful walking your dogs because there are small stickers all over that get tangled up in their coats. Staff are friendly, but some don't seem to know a lot about the surrounding area and they have to keep asking each other to find the answers to questions. The trains and the interstates are close, but we didn't find them bothersome. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This campground has the feel of a State or National Park with the cleanliness and ameneties of a private campground. The sites are of good size. The trails and roads are great for walking - there is enough land to keep you busy walking around the campground for days. The only downside is the proximity to the interstate and train tracks. We will come back. Fifth Wheel. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Very, very friendly! Only reason I gave it a 9 instead of 10 is because there is a nearby busy train track and 2 major freeways and I am a very light sleeper. Otherwise a perfect facility. I will definitely go back! We camped here in a Motorhome.
