Don't waste your time! We were led to believe that this was an upscale, modern RV Park. On the phone they were attentive to the year of our coach and the price. We were challenged at the gate (guard/clipboard etc.) We were not shown a map or given a description of the site, only that we would be let to the site. When we finally got there, it turned out to be a barren, small site gravel and slab with a tree that impinges on the site. The amenities were at least two city blocks away! When we told them that we would not be staying, they did not suggest another park. - 1Sight-seer

Big rig friendly with level sites. Stayed for 5 months to enjoy many activities. Entire park was dog friendly with lots of dog parks with bags which was good for us but not good for people without dogs. Nice park to ride bicycle and walk dog. Park needs repairs on repairs to washers, dryers, swimming pools, hot tubs, and showers. Had resident appreciation day but the best prizes was won by camp workers like it was fixed. - Fulltimersrv

This park needs some tender loving care; maybe it's because it was the end of the winter visitor season when we were there, but there were weeds everywhere; I realize they've had lots of rain and that may have encouraged excessive weed growth. The laundry room is nice and clean. Staff are very friendly. The roads are tight and putting a big motorhome between palm trees can be tough! - kks

This is definitely a park model resort that happens to have a few RV spaces. Within minutes of arriving, the "welcoming" guy came by, and within minutes so had most of the "neighbors". We were invited to come by to visit, but we never felt obligated. The facilities are clean and incredible, we even bought a pickleball set to take advantage of the spotless, and lighted courts. The pools are beautiful, with waterfalls adding a delightful ambiance. Fruit trees abound, and just ask to pick for free. Rates will drop dramatically as the park thins out in April...but it can sure get hot then. We loved being able to walk on a dedicated walkway to a nice Safeway food store, and a strip center with a variety of shops. Great dog park, exercise room was crowded at times...and hot. No cable on-site, but lots of digital channels. No Wi-Fi at the sites, just main public buildings. - tres gatos

I have stayed as this beautiful park twice now. This thing is beautiful and massive. It really is more of a park model home resort and filled with tons of Snowbirds. Dont let that stop you. Plenty of places for your RV and the amenities are wonderful, the neighbors are very welcoming and friendly! Two large grocery stores, nice club house. lots of activities if you are going to stay for a few days. The sites are gravel and you have to back in but plenty of room and a cement pad for your tow vehicle. I would highly recommend this place to anyone. I will use it again on my next road trip. - RV Road Warrior

First off, I wouldn't consider this an RV park, it's more a park model resort that allows an occasional RV to join them. We parked between 2 park models in a back-in. There are no pull throughs in this resort. It was 116 in the sun, so all we did was unhook and go to the pool...twice in the pool, which was absolutely beautiful. There are two pools and a beautiful hot tub with waterfalls. The grounds around the pool were beautiful! Water pressure was great, 50 amp service and no cable, but we got 75 channels on the antenna. We arrived on a Sunday and the office wasn't open but security told us a site to go to and said we could check-in (and out) in the morning. The office opened promptly and was very quick to process us. The rates had gone down June 1st, so with Passport America we got a rate of $23 plus resort fee and taxes, totaling $30.78. There were no trees at our site and all it was was gravel and not the easiest spot to back in to because of a post. - Ginny H

This park has beautiful facilities, but it is extremely large, so its a long haul to any of the facilities and activities. The site itself left a lot to be desired, considering the rate paid. The RV spots are way out in the hinterlands. In the row I was parked in, every site was sloped heavily to the front, and every rig was up on blocks in the front or had wheels off the ground. There is no wifi at the sites, even with an antenna, given the distance to the common area where they have wifi. The rate includes cable, with a fair selection of channels. Parking was a challenge, as they have planted useless non-shade producing trees at the front of every site, cutting the site in two. The guy who came out to help me park backed my passenger side mirror right into the tree. The water setup was very rickety, and located in back of the site (looked like it had been run over at some point). The sewer connection ends up underneath your rig. Garbage collection is once a week, with a garbage can at each site. The one at my site was half filled with garbage when I got there. On the positive side, the site was very large side to side. The customer service was poor in both the reception office and activities office. They put you on hold forever if you call. When I got there, I asked the girl in the reception office about a local business, and she just shrugged her shoulders and said, "I don't know, I don't live here." I asked here about the entry rules for the park, and she said maybe the guy at the gate could tell me. The lady in the activities office was too busy talking to a friend to help me. She threw a book at me and told me all of the activities were listed in there. Both golf courses are great, but the 18 hole course is overbooked on weekdays, and 5 hours rounds are the norm. Not worth the price paid, but for longer stays, the rate goes down, and it might be worth it. - KAP99

Second stay here. Just stayed in pull thru by the office since only one night. Great Encore Park. Rate reflects Thousand Trails discount. Not a summer place because of the heat, but okay if driving through. Excellent place to stay in the Winter. Level 50 amp asphalt and gravel sites. 2 dog runs. ALL the amenities. - teepee51
Mar 2018 - $20.00
Best Encore Park that we have visited on the Thousand Trails system. Immaculately manicured and serviced. We stayed only one night so had a pull thru full hookup level asphalt 50 amp site in front of the office. There are about 12 of these. The rest are back in and roads are pretty tight. LONG way to dog runs and they are strict about using them. Strong cell. Did not try the wifi. Several pools, store etc. Very nice, would stay here again. - teepee51

On the plus side: friendly staff, paved roads, sites are level left to right although low in front. On the negative, three big ones: 1-roads are very narrow. Admittedly I am very poor at backing up, but it took 3 people to get our fifth wheel into our site. 2-the sewer drain is in the middle of the site, i.e., under your rig. I had to crawl under the unit to hook our sewer line to the drain, and when we left I unhooked from the unit, threw the hose under the unit, drove away and then walked back and picked up our hose. Why would any idiot design a sewer drain under a unit? 3-the sites are very close together. Apache Junction is a busy suburb of Phoenix, too busy for our taste. - Tom-MNAK

Small friendly place to stay very near downtown Apache Junction. Sewer hookups is tricky, in the center of your parking spot. Be prepared to lay your hose down before you back in. Modest but clean and comfortable amenities. Easy in/out on Broadway (center turn lane). Near all shopping, banking, post office...under 2mi. Nice mountain views as you walk around the park or play pickleball. Grassy area to walk dogs. Direct TV on 3 TVs in clubhouse. Gym had good machines. - Todd Fogelberg

Off season so pretty empty. Park appears to have started as a park model location. Many lots available now for RV'S. The people here and office staff are friendly and helpful. Spots are pretty level and all have a concrete patio. No table or bbq. Roads are in good shape and easy to maneuver around. Towed fits beside patio. Size limit, generally 35'. If longer call for availability. One small grass area. Rules say pets should be walked in the middle of road so they don't go in spaces. - Ray O

Really barren, not easy to get the motorhome around in. NOISY from the road. Would not stay again. - rayzorben

The park staff are friendly and helpful the roads are a good width . Most of the sites will accommodate a larger rig l have red reviews of people complaining about the difficulty backing in to the sites maybe it is time to get something smaller my wife has only backed our rig in twice before had no trouble. Other complaints l have read is about the location of the site they received short timers like us know you get what is available. The residents have been friendly and accepting of us l guess you get the treatment you give. We will be returning multiple times this winter . - RandB with the Gypsy Cats

The people working in the office and mail room are real rude? Not sure if they are French Canadian, but they do not want to answer questions or help you. Flat rude to ignore you and act like they are over worked! - fulltimer345

Staying here for 1 week. Rate based on weekly rate discount. This is a 55+ community with a small group of sites set aside for RV's. Calling ahead for a reservation is definitely recommended. Overall, we have found it to be very neat, clean, & peaceful. Residents are friendly. Some older units, but all are well maintained. The sites are gravel (like 99% of the area), but not dusty. Each site has a good sized paved patio. Interior roads are paved & easy to navigate. The only negative I have found is that the electrical hook-up at this site is 50 amp only. An adapter is necessary for a 30 amp rig. The community is very convenient to the Chandler area. Lots of shopping close by. If you are coming in on the AZ-202 Loop, do not take the Gilbert Road exit unless you are okay with a u-turn to get to the campground entrance. There is no cut in the median across from the entrance. We would definitely stay here again when in the Chandler area. - Life's good

This place is all about the value. We discussed some of the "questionable" reviews with management prior to arriving for a one month visit close to daughter #1. Frankly, this was about the only option near Chandler, so we took the chance. I would suggest you ask for a space in the "main part" of the park, which is peppered with a combination of mobile homes, and RVs. There is a small section for RVs closer to Gilbert Rd., and it was noisier there. Just about all sites we saw in the main park of what essentially is a mobile home park with RVers tossed in were back-in, and you might find yourself at the limit of your 50 amp line to reach the power pole. Power in Chandler (in fact much of AZ) goes on and off...in our case 5 times in one month. We counted on our surge protector to keep things in shape, and the power was 117/119v across both legs pretty much all the time. Our site was wide enough for 4 slides out, plus the toad either in front/or to the side. A concrete pad was large enough for the awning to cover the chairs. We brought our own Internet, and the cable was just fine. 100+ year old cactus, oleander/bougainvillea (in bloom), and palm trees abound. The pool was large, deep and clean. The hot tub next to the pool was hot and clean. In looking around, it's like time stands still here. The maintenance guy on the golf cart hands out doggie treats, the central courtyard surrounding the pool complex, and the interesting mix of "desert rat" residents, transient RVers, multi-month snowbirds, and local working residents make for an interesting and friendly mix. Anytime we caught ourselves comparing to some of the jazzier places we have stayed we stopped, because we couldn't name one that offered full 50 amp hook-ups for what is about 20-30 bucks a day. If you are looking for luxury...keep driving. However, if you want a unique, clean, value-laden historical piece of Arizona RV'ing...go ahead. - tres gatos

We were here for 3 nights, wish it had been less. This is basically a mobile home park with spots for a few RV's as an afterthought in a very tight corner of the park right next to a very busy road with lots of buses and a 24 hr. Circle K right behind us. We have stayed in nearly 100 RV parks and campgrounds and this was one of the worst we have ever tried to pull in or hook up to. Our electricity was shared on a 30amp circuit with a gigantic lighted 2-sided billboard over our head, so that if we used more than 2 appliances at the same time in our trailer, the circuit would break. Turn the breaker off and out goes the billboard! The sewer hookup was actually underneath the RV, so you hook up and back over your sewer. Road noise was inconceivable. The office's answer for everything was "that's the way it's always been". We had a hedge of bushes between us and the bus stop and music playing 24 hours a day at the Circle K. The pool/rec room was nice. We would NEVER return here. This park would be better served to eliminate the RV spots. - kcjflea

The camp hosts were very friendly and the grounds were well maintained. The restrooms and laundry room was very clean also. The place is small around maybe 20 spaces in a lot behind the owners motorcycle shop and in between camps were small as well. It can get noisy as it is a shop and with the Main Street traffic. Our trailer was in a tight spot that the trucks across from us had to be moved so we could get out. The campground is right across the street from Camping World and there's lots of RV Sales Lot, grocery stores and restaurants nearby. This place is ok but I would like a lot more space between camps and if only the road around the campground were wider or had a bigger turn. - Kukana

Having viewed Twin Palms on Google Earth, I was a little apprehensive about spotting the entrance on arrival but no problems.
A very well maintained, clean park with excellent facilities. Grounds keepers were there about 8:00 Tue morning, trimming, mowing and blowing to maintain the very neat appearance.
I was especially impressed with the sewer hookup. It had not been run over, cross-threaded by an 800 lb. gorilla or otherwise abused and made unusable.
This was our first visit but not the last. - jrbarber

I really enjoyed my stay here, a very good value for the cost (apparently a year-round price). It is difficult to find a reasonably-priced RV park this close to the Gilbert/Chandler area. The Manager made me feel right at home.
My stay lasted four months during the summer season. Due to the time of year, it was very quiet. The small RV sites are clustered together among the park models. At this time of year, there were no neighbors in my section except a few park model occupants.
The park is old and the electric meters could use a paint job, but the laundry room, restroom facilities, and community center were kept immaculate. The pool was small but well maintained. - Margo Armstrong

We spent several days in this park, we were in town for an unexpected family emergency and found its location very good for getting around to different areas. The motorhome area is rather tight, we had to sandwich in between mobile homes. However if we went again we would just ask for one in a different location. The site had full hook ups and was long enough for coach and our tow vehicle. It was very level. The full-time neighbors in the mobile homes were not happy to see us there pulling our motorhome in and out. The staff in the park however were very friendly and helpful. This is a good size park with two swimming pools and two clubhouse is filled with activities. - Nan Griff

We stayed here for the entire months of January and February. The $24 a night price reflects the monthly rate plus the flat-rate electricity (unusual, as other places we've stayed at month-at-a-time bill you for actual usage).
Palm Gardens has a "low-end" section called The Village, which is where many of the RVs and single-wide trailers are located. It's convenient to the south clubhouse / pool, but also close to Lindsay Rd. which is noisy. Still, we had plenty of room to get our rig in and out plus to park our toad. We liked that CenturyLink provides short-term DSL service to the site, which was a win-win for us. Less for our cell minutes, and true broadband for streaming Netflix, etc.
You enter only on Main, but can exit either on Main or on Lindsay. Post office is adjacent to park, Fry's grocery /gas a block away, Camping World a few blocks away, Walmart a few miles away, ditto for Costco.
Mail delivery is right to your site, which is nice.
Not as many amenities as the Cal-Am resorts we've stayed in, but it is a nice place to stay, and if we returned to Mesa, we'd probably stay here again. - coffeetime

Clean park, mostly a manufactured home park vs. an RV park. RV sites seemed to be primarily occupied by long term residents. Very clean and neat. Price reflects Passport America discount for a week, plus 2 days at the regular rate. WiFi did not work in our section of the park. Verizon JetPack worked well. We were put in a site between 2 single wide trailers; very quiet location, much quieter than the RV section that was close to a busy street. Laundry facilities were about the cleanest we've seen at any RV park with plenty of machines and reasonable prices. - DRFink
