Quiet, very spacious sites, groomed trails to walk, lots of amenities - loved it! Will definitely stay here again! We camped here in a Motorhome.
[ 4 / 10 ]
We stayed at this RV park for 3 months. Beautiful setting, natural desert, walking trails, fitness center, and a pool. All sites are back-in and, except for the premium exterior sites, another RV will be directly behind you so privacy is limited. All interior roads are coarse gravel and would benefit from having a grader go through and pack down the gravel. Walking on the gravel is difficult. There is a nice activity center for people to play bingo, cards, stained glass, etc. There did not appear to be any activity coordinator to plan events. Each week a list of weekly activities was e-mailed and that was appreciated. Pool was only heated when temperatures were above 70'F. Fitness center equipment was minimal;for the number of people wanting to use it. More is needed. The fitness center had an air conditioner but was usually turned off. When the air conditioner was on the room was suitable for use. There is virtually no shopping nearby. If you are looking for isolation in the desert and do not need to shop often this place would be fine. This RV park is definitely more spacious than most of the RV parks in Arizona. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Great gym, nice clubhouse, big sites, very scenic. Stained glass teacher and setup is outstanding. Also very good setup for quilt-making and sewing. Line dancing, genealogy, tagalongs, pot lucks. Lots of activities. Only complaint is the pool is not very hot, and they leave the cover on. If you want to use it, you have to go and ask for staff to come and remove it. Wish they would uncover pool at 10 am and close at 10 pm, and there would be more water activities. Also no picnic tables at sites. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This is our 4th year here. Rate includes 3-mo discount. They are growing VERY rapidly, but the amenities are NOT keeping up. Don't heat the pool till mid-Feb. No mail service - have to rent a box in Florence (10 mi round trip). If you put down a deposit, after you arrive they can sell your lot, and if your section is full, you can end up in the new area which is far from the activity bldg. If you need to drive your car to the activities, there's very little parking, so you have to rent a golf cart. Very few group activities -- most are pot lucks -- almost NO entertainment, and if there is, it's a repeat from last year. We won't come back again. Sad, as it's a beautiful park. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Very lovely park; amazing landscaping. The rate reflects a monthly rate. Wide, wide sites. All gravel, no patios at all. All sites are for sale, so owners will have to put one in where they want it, no pressure to buy. Very clean and quiet park, and we felt safe here. The activity director left the end of Feb., so very little in the way of organized activities or lessons. There were potlucks, ice cream socials, catered dinners (no kitchen in the rec hall) and Bingo. The internet is available for a fee. Didn't use it, so don't know how reliable it is. Pool/hot tub area very nice, laundromat very clean. It is too far from amenities for our taste: the closest big grocery/Wal-Mart is about 15 miles away. A few restaurants in town that we went to, were good; a National Monument is about 15 miles away; a Greek Orthodox Monastery (beautiful) is about 10 miles away; and that's about it, unless you drive 50 miles to Mesa, or 60 miles to Tucson. We might stop here again for a week or so, but a month was too long for us. We camped here in a Motorhome.
I would have given them a 10, but they have gravel roads. I personally don't like gravel roads because they are so noisy. They have a pool and hot tub, wood working room, jewelry making and great laundry room. This is a very nice park. It is centrally located between Tucson and Phoenix. There are some really good restaurants nearby. I would definitely stay here again, although, again, don't like the gravel roads. Clean and upscale. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Stayed one night. No pull throughs, but plenty of room for backing in. Guess the snowbird season is over because the park was almost empty. Good water pressure and power, no cable TV, and I had a little trouble with the WiFi. Not much here, but it seemed kept up. Quite a few weeds about, but I was told they had just sprayed for them. Not a lot of choices in the area. We would stay again. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Nice large sites, all gravel and very dusty if near main traffic route. Good activities with nice building. Needs a kitchen added. Nice pool, workout area and rec room. Horseshoe pits are available. Only two showers. Would stay here again but would like to see kitchen added and wood shop opened for use. All the sites are for sale, no pressure to buy. Rental fees are reasonable. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We stayed here with the 5 free night package. Very impressed with the park as the sites are large and well spaced. Some sections have more mature landscaping. Loose gravel on the roads is hard to walk on. The swimming pool is new, but much too small for the size of the park. Only two showers, which were well kept, but separated from the restrooms by a walkway. Good, new exercise equipment. The park has its own well and the water is good - a definite plus. The sales presentation was low key. We felt that this is a little too far from services although the desert setting was very great and the sunsets stupendous. Another possible drawback is the presence of state and county prisons in Florence. No cable service, and when we used our digital converter there was no signal. Apparently more services are in the works. The clubhouse has no kitchen but there is a woodworking shop and stained glass shop. Would possibly stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Yes, the gravel sites really are huge, though a concrete pad would have been nice. No shade, so it can be hot out here, and it was windy every day which really stirred up the dust. But you get beautiful desert sunsets, & peace and quiet, unless you are parked near the highway. Very nice swimming pool and spa, laundry room, clubhouse, large shower rooms (but only 2). There are 266 sites, very spread out, long walk to the facilities. Only one set of dumpsters, no recycling; lots of residents were driving to anything within. Park is 5 miles from jct. to town, and 10mi.from a major grocery store. Seems an odd spot to be selling expensive lots, which were about 10%sold. Good deal now to stay 5 nights free and listen to low key sales pitch; see website. Definitely a nice place to visit and big rigs will love it. People were friendly. We camped here in a Motorhome.
A new management company has bought this campground and are selling lots as well as renting them. If we were ready to settle down in one spot, we would definitely purchase here. The people are very friendly and welcoming. The staff was great. The new pool and spa are spotless and soothing. Lots of activities to choose from. The setting is beautiful as the campground is surrounded by the natural desert. Saguaro Cacti are everywhere, the sunsets are unobstructed and you can really commune with nature. The campsites are some of the widest we have ever seen..wonderful privacy with space to stretch out and full hook-ups. This park has spoiled us to those other parks where you park side-by-side with other RV's your awnings practically touch and you can look into their windows. We will definitely come back here for a very long stay. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is a lot-for-sale park that rents spots. Park is still in the development phase. If you like a quiet desert setting this place is hard to beat. Lots are huge. We were here for 12 days: first 5 days were a freebee-listen-to-the sales-pitch (no pressure) and then $170 for an additional week. I would rate it a 10, except for no cable and WiFi at extra cost. By the way, swimming pool & spa is currently going through final testing. We plan to return next year, perhaps for a longer stay. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This is a buy your lot campground with renting available. We stayed here for 3 months in a fifth wheel. Left because we were told the lot we were on wouldn't sell because it had an RV on it. They were more interested in selling. Beautiful campground but buyer beware. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
First, this is one of the most aesthetically pleasing parks we've stayed in during our first year of living FT in an RV. The owners have taken great care to keep the facility pleasing to the eyes. There is a B&B on property that is equally nice. There is a lovely pool/spa area with citrus trees growing on the property. They aren't treated so you have to get to the fruit before the bugs do. The coyotes were very interesting to listen to at night off in the distance and sometimes close by, but never on the property. Keep your animal on a leash though. We live in a 39' fifth wheel toy hauler and had no problems getting into our site. This is a small intimate park. The park provided Wi-Fi is very poor. You will be able to use your Verizon phone here, but the air card service is very unreliable. We still work full time and had to leave early because of the unreliability of running off a Verizon air card. The site next to us left too because he has a Sprint phone that would drop his calls. It's very unfortunate because I'd love to stay longer. You are out away from civilization, and your cell signal bounces between three towers. The beauty of this place is it is almost like camping again even though you live in an RV. Also, this is not a 55+ park which is nice. (AZ law requires the parks allow 20% of those under 55 into the park, but you have to take their word for it). The sites are large for this part of the country with lots of natural flora/fauna. We were in site 42 which was very nice until they started parking overflow vehicles in the desert behind us. It killed our view. And, the site that filled up in our right back corner was a little too close, but it's better than most parks in the area. The only negative I can say is the campers who have returned for 8+ years started things off on the wrong track for me. They stay on the back row. We have a dog and take proper care of her. But, I was given the "evil eye" when I walked her in the back row area behind the RV and over by the dog walk. Turns out you are judged before they know you are staying in this back area. They've had problems in the past with other campers allowing their pets in the common RV area for the back row folks and not cleaned up after their pet. Thankfully, I was approached, and the person apologized, but it just set a bad tone. This same group holds daily happy hour as well. I think they could have been welcoming, but I'm not sure I want to associate with folks who are so "tight" and react without knowing facts. I truly hope when I hit the 55+ age that I have more on my mind than to worry about stuff like this and talk about other people. The upside is they do keep an eye on what's going on in the park, so nothing gets amiss fast. If you are a big rig, make sure you stay in a premium site. It's a little more costly but well worth it. Overall, I hate to leave this RV park and would love to return when we don't have to work full time anymore. One last word, the folks are so helpful that make the reservations. I couldn't say anything nicer about the people who work for the RV park. Happy trails! We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Very nice people, the long-term section of the park was great (lots of lovely decorations) but unfortunately we had problems in the overnight section. (The electricity did not work: the owner said they would fix it.) Overnight section did not have much privacy plus no sewer. Pool and spa were too cold to use. No fenced dog area but lots of space to walk around. Club house was very nice and the laundry facility was free. Overall this is probably a better place for someone who is planning on staying a couple of months. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Nice friendly park. At this time of the year the main sites are all long termers who have been here a number of years. We were in overflow area which did not have sewer nor was Wi-Fi signal available. Had to walk to the club to get signal. People are very friendly and about half the park is involved in traveling throughout the area in their 4-wheel drives, mostly Jeeps. Would stop here again. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Rancho Sonora is a nice RV park with a small inn and casitas on the property. The park was mostly vacant an quiet as we camped here in the off-season. The park is well maintained and situated in a nice desert setting. There's a walking path through the desert which is nice early in the morning. The stars are bright as the park is well away from the city. The Wi-Fi worked well. We camped here in a Motorhome.
