Simply one of the best parks we've stayed in. The sites are large and level, the people are welcoming and helpful, and the amenities are out of this world. There is always something going on, from concerts, to crafts of every kind you can imagine, to current event discussion groups, and of course Pickle Ball. This is an active, vibrant community that makes everyone feel at home. - Miles and Smiles

The staff was very friendly and helpful. The facility was awesome. You can keep as busy as you want to as there are a lot of activities they offer. The only complaint that I had was about my site. I had to take a wired brush to clean up the water spicket so my hose could attach. The sewer connection was broken but I was able to jam my hose to it. The lost was unlevel. I needed to place wood under one side of the rigs tires. The rated was based on the TT trails collection option. I would stay there again. - rynosback

This is a very nice RV Park. We pulled in earlier than expected on a Saturday and the front desk was very accommodating. The person in charge of showing us to our site came into reception and informed the check in employee that the site they had reserved for us would not fit our 42' coach comfortably. He then went out to find another spot that would. For that we were very grateful. The park is a mix of park models and RV spots. Getting into the new space (between two park models) was a bit tricky due to the placement of light posts, but we made it. Leveling was easy. All utilities worked well - they even offered cable with 10 channels. No Wifi at the site. You'd think in this day and age they'd have that figured out. Internet at the site was possible for a fee, but the $75 "connection" charge made it not cost-effective for a one week stay. So it's possible, just at an unrealistic price. Lots of activities at the park - pickle ball, bocce ball, shuffleboard, different classes, pools, bands - being there for only a week we didn't indulge in any of it. We did use the fitness center which is nicely equipped. They even had a flea market of sorts one day we were there. There's a restaurant on site, ample laundry, and guard gated entry. Felt safe and was very clean. We'd go back again. No Wifi would be our only reason not to since we work when traveling and that's a big deal for us. - theSchreibers

They close the office from 12:00 to 1:00 so you have to sit and wait in a hot parking lot waiting for them to open. The sewer hook-up at the site was awful and probably illegal. No cable and no Wi-Fi. Their entrance is very narrow and restrictive. The road they are on (Ajo Way) is so busy that you sometimes can't get out of the park with your car, let alone your RV. There are much better places to stay when visiting Tucson. - Cucutz

I really enjoyed my stay here. The sites were clean (back in only) and the grounds were very nice. The real pleasant parts about Desert Pueblo, in my opinion, were all the different amenities they had - picnic tables, clubhouses, nice trees/scenery, putting green, pools, hot tubs, lawn games and so on. We stayed for a few days only as we were passing through Tucson, but it was quite enjoyable and we would've loved to have stayed longer. We'll definitely keep them in mind when we swing back into town. - Victor Cecic

The sites are large, deep, and clean. There is no noise from the busy street. When we called to make reservations, the person who answered the phone was curt and rude, but the person who checked us in was pleasant. The biggest disappointments were no Wi-Fi and no cable. This park is a mobile home community, and overnighters are not the focus. We will not stay here again. - LB Rohn

This is a very small park that is all about location, because you are close to Tucson's downtown, and the Mercado. The park is well run, with asphalt roads and very little landscaping. Not dog friendly, as campers are asked to take their dogs to the front gravel to do their business or else take a walk, but with such a tiny park I understand why. We went over to Menlo Park most days, just a couple of blocks away. Area is working class but I felt safe, although I would probably avoid Menlo Park after dark. The RV park is very secure, with code entry for cars and pedestrians. Two employees live onsite and are available at all times for problems. Walk to the street car or the river walk. Short drive or street car ride to downtown or Fourth Street district. - Grants Girl

Spent 1 month in this small, inner city park. It is located near everything you'd need and close to all attractions. Park may be small and all paved ground, but it is still a prize spot and surprisingly quite.The camp staff go above and beyond to make guests comfortable. We certainly would return. - Mainiac

Small park very centrally located in Tucson. Other parks in the area that are much fancier, but this one met our needs for sightseeing around the Tucson area. Paved roads and sites, full hookups, 50 amp. Bathrooms and laundry were clean and nice. Site was not overly spacious, but big enough for 36' coach and toad. Certainly recommend it unless you are looking for a resort type park. - Ribbet

We came here in a MH 6 winters ago, but bought a park model. We love it here because of the wonderful people, but the park management leaves a lot to be desired. The antiquated electrical and plumbing systems cause a lot of inconvenience - systems go out regularly, and occasionally for days at a time. Flower gardens are put in, but never weeded. The pool is too small, there are not enough meeting and class rooms, membership in the wood shop is limited, the pottery building and lapidary studios are too small, yet the owner keeps adding more RV spaces. The rent goes up every year. Three years ago the reason was resurfacing the streets and some of them were done, but not even half. But in my opinion, for $5.500 a year, we expect good roads, working electricity and plumbing. The owner micro-manages the trash to save money so there is always trash over-flowing the containers. There is a perfectly good park manager, but she too is micro-managed. Somehow, this park got the 2019 Mega Park of the Year award. - Ramblin' Duo

This very large park was nicely landscaped and generally well-maintained, with more activities and clubs than we could sample in only a week. We intentionally scheduled our stay to coincide with the Gem & Mineral Show (for me) and the park's spring Craft Show (for my wife). Our site, however, was much too narrow for our fifth wheel and 3/4-ton truck. The truck parking space between our concrete patio and the adjacent park model was so narrow that I had to fold my driver's mirror in and still scraped the tires on the raised patio. We finally moved our trailer back against the electric and water posts and so we could park in front of the trailer. We nearly ran over the sewer hookup trying to fit the trailer between it and the patio. Plus the narrow street and the palm tree trunk next to it made backing in very difficult. So, our site was less desirable than the other park facilities, although the clean, well-maintained laundry building was conveniently located just across the entrance road. - fanrgs

Park is primarily for long-term residents. Spotlessly clean with close adherence to rules (pets only in certain areas, etc). Very orderly and neat. Roads a little tight but we were able to park our 40' motorhome without too much fuss once aligned properly to back in. - ziaptrn

This is by far the nicest KOA I have ever visited. It's huge, but very well run. You will pay a premium here, so if that's a consideration it may not be your cup of tea. Since we don't get out that often now, we like nicer RV parks when we do travel. My rate was high because I visited here in prime season, and this was the only site available. It was called a "canine" site, and has it's own fenced in grassy area for dogs. My indoor cats were not impressed, but might be nice for those with dogs. The neighborhood is not upscale, but OK. The park itself feels very safe and secure, with a night time security guard. If I'm ever back in Tucson, I'll stay here again. - Fotodog

This is a nice looking and large park. Check-in was quick, and the staff was polite. There is a barbecue restaurant on site that stayed pretty busy. There are "covered" sites but it is solar panels so it is not complete coverage. There is a stretch of grass and a citrus tree between sites. The sites are close together but not right on top of each other. Our site was surprisingly very unlevel - mostly side to side but also different in the front and back. We were afraid of torquing the frame so we settled with mostly level. The gravel just needs to be graded which should be done after each RV leaves. Our site was long enough for the car and motorhome but there was also a paved spot next to the motorhome for the car. You are allowed to pick fruit which was in season when we were there so we helped ourselves to grapefruits, oranges and lemons. The WII FI, which was tengointernet, worked good for once. Directv satellite worked fine in our site but they also have cable. You will hear trains, planes and automobiles. The park is not in the best part of town but they have a gate and concertina wire. We were only there for one night so didn't use any of the amenities. - Free

Nightly rate above is based on current (2018-2019) monthly rate. Daily is in the 60's. My ratings below are based upon current analysis and future plans.
10 - senior work campers are great! Other staff are OK. They pick up garbage all day long and offer recycling bins.
9 - Standard pull thru sites are fine - mostly level, all gravel with patio and metal tables. Full hookups placed appropriately.
8- Amenities are fine. Park attempts to offer activities for all ages (remember this is not an 55+ Park). Outside heated pool. Two pickle ball courts (without enclosure so perhaps one has a dog that can retrieve passed balls).
But 1 - as one of the nicest Parks in Tucson, it seems to be trying to take advantage of its success. Current monthly rates for standard pull-thru sites are $945/month. In 2019-20, those same site prices will increase to $1295/month, a 34% increase, and for February, 2020, the monthly rate will be $1395/month, a 45% increase. To me, this is gouging. I've wintered in this Park for over 6 years and will strongly consider options for the future. You know what "KOA" stands for, right? ("Keep On Adding") No longer a family park, it is trying to be a high-end coach park. And if you would like a "premium site", like having an 8 by 10 patch of grass, be prepared to pay for it! Maybe that's what corporate (KOA owns it, not a franchise) wants! Sad! - kurtk

If you are broke and need anyplace HERE YOU GO. I did not actually have any problems here but not brave enough to use bathrooms . Gun shots heard almost every night, police w/ sirens and helicopters over head numerous times, Loud traffic almost 24/7, Worst wifi so far I have encountered even at the 40 dollars a month connection. Manager promises a lot, follows through on little. Paid for a full month so there is a 50 dollar deposit on electric and I used it all somehow ? met a few nice people there but DRUGS and dealers Prostitutes Homeless people everywhere. crappy bathrooms (I got gym membership so I could have a clean place to shower ) may not bother some people but the fact I made it 30 days is A miracle. I don't recommend it and strongly suggest you look elsewhere unless you are looking for that kind of place - tatmanco

Park for small RVs only with no programs and very tight spaces. Value for money poor. Has no discounts. Clean older park with very friendly staff that is in Hi traffic area. Would not stay here again. - RVLuver

I stayed here for 2 nights to have my motorhome checked and repaired. The shower rooms were rundown but clean. Manager very friendly and helpful. But there is more to a park then just the manager and shower rooms! The permanent residents there think that they are better than those of us that are just there for a few days. I sat in my lawn chair and watched as the ringleader of the larger group put on a mask of concern while talking to the manager then as she was walking away with most of the group she tells them that "The fat Bitch needs to go". I would have returned to that park just because the manager was so nice but also because she promised to put me as far away from that group but she no longer works there. - Annita

We were visiting friends came in on a Sunday they were very relaxed about paying and were able to wait until Monday. Our site was very nice and convenient to the pool and club house. But we were NEVER informed that there was a shower room available for RVers. This is a big oversight in my mind, very disappointing to learn two days before we are leaving that showers were available. The shower rooms are very nice upgraded with new tile it sure would have been nice to have the use of them for our whole visit! - DebbieSisters

Very disappointed. I thought Encore/Equity Lifestyle was a large company. This park has very low standards. Very weedy in common areas and some sites. Multiple RV's on single sites, work trailers and boats in yards, overflowing carports with junk. I like the fact that kids are allowed to live here and my dobermans are OK in this park. Bikers are also prevalent at all hours. Not too many teenagers yet, just a few that live here. The clubhouse leaves much to be desired, with a lack of activities and exercise bikes. The only bright spot is the admin lady, very friendly, but she has to work maintenance all the time. This is a park that I will not stay in again. - jbanner77

Only stayed 2 nights with our small TT; mid Nov so not real busy; very nice and helpful staff (managers or owners??). Entrance looks like a slum but our site was clean and level; sites not very big but since we had only 1 neighbor it didn't matter much. The pet area is really just the desert outside the sturdy chain-link fence but we could walk our dogs as far or near as we wanted. WASHING MACHINES are $1.75-old style-they fill right to the top with water; dryers are ~ $1.75 for 72 minutes!! which I think is a good deal. The POOL water appeared clean but green stuff around the edges of the cement-- I probably wouldn't have gone in even if it was warmer--not inviting at all. Women's RESTROOM /SHOWER were separate (locked bathrooms-just 2) They were fairly old, but clean. Again, very friendly and helpful folks the 2 days we were there mid-November 2018. - Jacky11

The managers were very helpful. We stayed three nights here and loved it. We even had the help of folks getting out of the park as well. I really did like this park it was close enough to Hwy 10 to give you access to the city but far enough that you didn't hear any of the hwy noises. - CourtneyHawke

We stayed here for four months the winter of 2017/2018. The manager was very generous, affable, accommodating and diligent about park cleanliness and security. The park is located in a part of town that has some homeless and a lot of traffic. The traffic noise is in your face if you park up by the front of the park, not so bad in the back. The park is just around the corner from Interstate 10 so makes it easy to get around Tucson. There are numerous chain and mom and pop restaurants. The park isn't as ritzy as some of the other parks in the area but my wife and I don't need that. We need everything to work, like bathrooms and sewers, electric, etc. and they did at Whispering Palms. The manager and her husband got to be good friends as well as some of the other people in the park. A friend came to visit us for a month and management made sure their RV was parked right next to us. Can't say enough good about this park. You can look up a good video on you tube about the park made by a pro. - steppin right along

Gravel full hookup pull-through convenient to the Interstate but a long way from Saguaro National Park. Many long term residents, but plenty of room for travelers. Wi-Fi was good, but the cable was dead at our site. (They had been installing new water lines and may have cut some of the cable connections.) We picked up cable from the vacant site next door. We would stay here again. - Alworth

We stayed for 2 nights March 28 and 29, 2016 in our teardrop camper during a two month trip across country. Management was very friendly and helpful. Park was very neat and clean. Restrooms were excellent. Some parks we stayed at during the 2 months on the road were poor, but Whispering Palms was great. Would definitely stay there again when in Tuscon. - Jo and John

I stayed 2016 winter here. It's a fairly noisy park with nearby roads and dogs in and around park. One dog -pit bull, in park is kept inside a fence around a mobile and kept jumping the fence and attacking other dogs and campers. There is a surcharge for their elec so you pay more than the local rate -17.8c. Parking is insufficient -cars are parked in roadway making it hard to get in/out. I probably will not be back and caution others from. - 2 maybe 3 eagles

Wi-Fi only works if you stand next to the manager's trailer. Useless through the rest of the park.
A COCKROACH fell ON MY FACE while I was taking a SHOWER!!! That pretty much says it all about this place. No... there's more and worse. There's a coded lock on the door (and a sign) to keep the prostitutes and druggies out of the bathrooms at night, but someone in the park props the door open every night so they come on in anyway. I tried to take a shower at 11, then midnight, then fell asleep and finally took a shower at 3am... the door was still propped open but at least druggies and prostitutes were gone.
Hot shower. That's all I can say. But a COCKROACH on my face. And be careful... in all the nooks and crannies and corners of the shower/laundry house are BROWN RECLUSE SPIDERS. I dropped my toothbrush by the sink and thank God I looked before I stuck my hand between the sink and wall.
It is not an experience I would ever care to repeat in my life. I'm an RVer, a traveler. After the reviews I read on Google, I expected a good experience, not the experience of staying in a seedy motel where prostitutes do their business. - Kayla Genteel
