This is the park that had me questioning the Good Sam rating system. It was awful. The only thing nice I can say is that management was friendly and somewhat helpful. This is a mobile home/snowbird park with some RV spots in the rear, most of which also looked like snowbird spots. The sites are on larger pebbles and crunched when riding on. There are no picnic tables. The facility had a game room and clubhouse that was pretty much unusable since it was so hot, and there was no air conditioning, at least none that was on. There is a men's shower/restroom and a woman's shower/restroom. Just one of each. At least they were clean. We chose this campground as were heading north after our stay and didn't want to get into Tucson traffic. In hindsight, we should have put up with the traffic.
I have been FT for many years and travel all over the country. Stopped here on way to visit family. Very disappointing. I was putting faith in this beeing a good sam camp ground. It is a trailer park with rv spots in back. It sits in an agricultural field. All parking is on gravel. There is a cement slab to out a chair on. Management was nowhere to be found. The sign said office hours are 8-11:30 1-4:30 Mon thru Friday closed on weekend and evenings. The clubhouse was locked so unable to access showers and pool. Pool not heated. The long term residents shared with me that the only time they see the managers is when the owner of the park shows up. There is no shade anywhere. The people staying there had many complaints about recent changes in management. I was told it was never like this with the prior manager. I personally did not get a sense of community and did not feel safe at this park.
Stayed there for 2 weeks. Short way off I-10. Wi-Fi was very slow to almost stop (next time we travel we'll buy a hot spot to eliminate that problem). No cable TV. Antenna did work good once I found the right direction to point it. Very quiet to almost dead park. Not a whole lot of activities. Good thing there was a lot to see in the area.The shower area was big and ok clean. Staff was friendly and helpful if you had a question. Laundry area needed help. Washing machines were old,very small and dirty. They should be replaced. Dryers were ok. Back-in and pull-thru sites were long enough to handle just about any size rig. Short walk to Dollar Store for needed last minute things. Gas station at I-10 exit is $$$. (Take road to Ore Valley to save. Shopping center there to get just about anything you need.) The area around the park seems to be ok. We did a lot of walking around and had no issues. Small Catholic church a few minutes away. We probably would not do a long term stay here again, however if you are just passing thru, the place is great.
Stayed over night - but the people were very friendly and invited us to the goings on... There was plenty of room... Roadrunners were all over - really enjoyed seeing them... The mountain views were amazing... We would def. go back
I travel in a big rig and spent three nights at the RV Park. We have stayed in more than 30 Good Sam's Parks in the last year. The pull thru's are easy to get in and out and the layout of the park made it easy to get around. Easy access from Interstate 10. Utilities are fine (elec,water sewer). Clubhouse,pool, laundry,office are very nice.
The positives- very quiet park. We liked the fact that a Family Dollar Store was nearly walking distance from the park
The negatives- The sign at the entrance is hard to see and we drove by and had to turn around (there were no easy places to turn around). The WIFI did not work for the three days we were there. The "appeal" or surroundings are more like a "5" rather than the "9" rating Good Sam's gives the park. Its fine if you are just passing through but for longer stays I would stay at other nearby Good Sam Parks
