Located near Mesa and Apache Junction, this is a good park. While not as well run as its sister park, Cave Creek, it never the less is more than adequate. The hosts are very rigid in terms of site selection and seemingly have little interest in helping RVers get into a preferred site. The manager must wield a heavy hand since we heard that "manager won't allow" it many times including when we asked hosts for recommendations on where to go for laundromats and propane and they couldn't tell us. About one-third of the sites need lots of leveling. The sites on the outside perimeter of the park have the best views and privacy. Virtually all types of shopping is available within a few miles. This is a favorite of snow birds based on the number of license plates from Canada, Minnesota and Michigan. One other note. Sandy, the resident birder, is very helpful and knowledgeable for those interested in the bird-life of this region. We camped at Usery Mountain Regional Park in a Motorhome.

This has been one of our favorite parks since we began staying here back in 2001. Since then they have added new 50 amp hookups and improved the dump so you can dump coming in as well as going out. There is also a new nature center by the entrance to the park. The thing we don't like is the quantum leap the rates took to $25 the first of the year. They charged us $17 to park in the overflow area in the group camping area. We only had to spend one night there. Usually the overflow is located at the park entrance and charge only $10 there. They must have been directed to maximize revenue anyway they could. We come here at least once a year to visit family down below and we love it. We camped at Usery Mountain Regional Park in a Motorhome.

This park has an absolutely gorgeous desert setting, and each campsite is very private. The bathhouse is Spartan but clean. In general, this place is a great value, although there is only one dump station in the park and it was broken when we were there. We really enjoyed the park programs, small gift shop, and shaded playgrounds. The pull-through slots are easy—you just pull to the side of the road. The sites are not real level but big with a concrete a picnic table and lovely path to the bathhouse. We really wish we could have stayed here longer. The rates increased to $25/day just as we were leaving. We camped at Usery Mountain Regional Park in a Travel Trailer.

I really liked this park and campground BUT they have recently raised their rates to $25 a day. That is getting pricey with no sewer or cable and is high compared to the local private RV camps. But is has spacious sites, great views, very quiet and private and you are not jammed in against your neighbor. A lot of the pull through sites have the power and water on the wrong side (unless you want your door facing the road!) and the hookups are at the end of the sites so it can be difficult to get fully in the site. The sites are all big. Great hiking and biking in the park with lots of trails We camped at Usery Mountain Regional Park in a Fifth Wheel.

It seems everyone has already said it. A great place to stay. Went to the Apple computer stores in Phoenix, then back to the desert for our campsite. Life is good. Dump station near entrance. We camped at Usery Mountain Regional Park in a Motorhome.

What a great campground: $20 a night for water, electricity and awesome views. Has very clean restrooms. The campground is well worth the extra drive. This is a campground and not a cramped RV park. We camped at Usery Mountain Regional Park in a Travel Trailer.

Beautiful views of the mountains and valley, friendly staff, and low price contributed to a great stay. The park allows tents, and may be a little noisy on weekends. But there's good security, and I think excessive noise could be controlled. Only negative: I got chigger (insect) bites! That was irony, while true, I can't blame the park. We camped at Usery Mountain Regional Park in a Motorhome.

Another beautiful setting, surrounded by desert life but within minutes of Phoenix. A great trail system surrounds the park. The volunteer hosts were gracious and helpful. We flew into Phoenix picked up a rental RV and went out of way to stay again a week later upon our return. We camped at Usery Mountain Regional Park in a Motorhome.

This is camping in a desert setting. Plenty of hiking and biking trails. The campsites are well maintained, bathrooms and showers were cleaned and serviced daily. The park is occasionally patrolled by the Maricopa County Sheriffs Office. If you are looking for a place to hike, ride a mountain bike, or just looking for some solitude then this is the park for you. We camped at Usery Mountain Regional Park in a Motorhome.

The park was clean with good space between campsites. The park is very picturesque. The restrooms and showers were not heated, so it was cold in February but the water was hot. We camped at Usery Mountain Regional Park in a Travel Trailer.

One more good campground in the Maricopa County system. The sites are very spacious but many need a little work to level the rigs even with hydraulic jacks. The check in kiosk has info on where to go for laundry and food shopping but you have to ask. They don't hand out any info sheets. They didn't even know where to go to find free wifi. Re wifi, Mesa libraries don't let you get your email when using their system so there is no wifi option there. Good hiking trails as well as an archery and rifle range close by. Beautiful sunset views. I would staye there again but only if I couldn't get into Cave Creek. We camped at Usery Mountain Regional Park in a Motorhome.

We have stayed here for two weeks each year since 2001 since we have so many family and friends in the area. We have watched things improve here over the years. The new 50 amp service now is super. We have never had a bad spot in the park. Now, they are building a new visitor center which should be finished next time we come through the area. It is close to Mesa with everything you will ever need. The thing they could improve in all of the Regional Parks in the county is recycling; the only thing they take is aluminum cans. This overall is one of the best parks we stay in each year. It is so popular, you may have have to stay in the overflow area a while before you can get a spot in the campground. The hosts are real helpful and friendly. We camped at Usery Mountain Regional Park in a Motorhome.

We're actually still in this campground as I write this--we keep paying for "just a few more days" but we're about to hit the 14-day limit (if they have room and you move sites, word is they will overlook the limit). The park has many ranger-led activities--my son has been on more hikes the past couple weeks than ever before. And the "Brown Bag" lectures at lunchtime are fun and very educational. We've seen many coyotes right in the park--the last one a couple days ago about 25 feet from the trailer. And the views, especially at night, are very cool. Lots of cactus, lots of wildlife, lots of events to participate in. It's now become one of our very favorite campgrounds. Like someone else has mentioned, only the lack of sewer hookup kept this from getting a 10. We camped at Usery Mountain Regional Park in a Travel Trailer.

This is a very nice short stay Public RV Park. The sites have electric and water and a dump station is located as you enter/leave the campground. The views of the city at night are great. No night time security is provided, but it didn't seem to be a problem as there are host campers at the entrance to the campground. This is a 14 day maximum stay park. I would stay here again. We camped at Usery Mountain Regional Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Absolutely beautiful desert location, enormous gravel sites with cement tables and fire rings. Great spring vegetation and fabulous mountain views. The best campground we've been in in 2 years of full timing. Only lack of sewer kept this from a 10. Our second time here in 4 months. We can't keep the bird feeders full.
