Beautiful, well kept park. We were in the pet area and really enjoyed our stay. Going back for a longer stay next year. Level site with concrete patio and still enough room for toad and motorcycle. Mostly full-timers/park models, but also many RV sites. Very friendly staff (including/especially the guard shack). Nice, out of the way location, but only a short distance to shopping and entertainment. Easy to get out to motorcycle riding without having to go through congested areas. Pool and rec center looked great, but we didn’t use it in our 2 week stay. - The Original RV

We pull a 43 ft fifthwheel with a Ford F350 1 ton dually pick up. This is a huge park of primarily park models. No dog run. and a long walk to the club house and pool and other facilities. Park is beautiful with lots of green grass and tall trees and beautiful flowers. Streets are macadam. Spaces are large and long. Short term RV sites are 30/50 AMP Full Hook Up on sand with a narrow concrete pad for a patio. Folks here are very friendly. This is a really nice park - just wish there was a fenced off leash dog area. WIFI is only available in the clubhouse area. No cable TV and no pull thru spaces for RV. We will definitely return. - JanneC

We like this park so much that we took an annual site. Verizon is excellent. Satellite and over the air TV perfect. Internet is available at the activity center, we chose to sign up for Jabba. Sites are flat and large with patios. Roads could be better as Encore desperately needs to put some money into the pavement, which is the reason for the 9. Electric and water are good. All sites are FHU. We have two dogs and stay in the pet section. Lots of activities and good location for visiting the area. We travel in a 40 ft. MH and will be returning. - Deniselg53

This is a beautiful park and a lovely campground. E & W only, but there is a dump station at the exit of the campground. We were here in August and it was hellaciously hot and we were the only campers there but I can imagine that it fills up in more temperate times of the year. It is on the small side so I would make reservations as soon as possible. Most sites seem to require some leveling, but everything is very clean. The view of the lights of Phoenix in the distance at night was awesome! Didn't use the restrooms, but I looked in and they appeared to be bright, clean and modern. Expect we will be back. - Pdxjoanne

This is a county park that is very nice for county. NO sewer, wi-fi or cable. If you are looking to get away from it all, then this is your place. Scenery was beautiful. close to town for shopping for supplies. We have friends in the area and would go back. - gmasharp

This is our kind of campground and will be going back when we are in the area. There are hiking trailheads in the immediate area and they are well marked. We enjoyed the guided hikes provided by park staff. Quite all day and night, great night skies. - Bertha-3

This is NOT an RV Park. It is a long term RV Park for snowbirds. Since I was only there for a week, I had NO WIFI and NO CABLE. You are renting someone's improved lot. Some spaces have Covered parking for the RV and Arizona cabins. Mine was an open lot with a locked storage shed. The spaces are close together. ALL sites are back-in. They do have a volunteer kitchen with reasonably priced breakfast and lunch. The neighbors were friendly. The laundry was clean. - GerryBrown

We stayed here for 6 years. Lately the RV lots are disappearing, as many put Park Models on them. So finding lots each year is getting very difficult. Also if your rig/RV is over 10 yrs old, you have all kinds of requirements to have it allowed in. At 15 yr, has to be inspected by the Board. Electric is VERY high in Surprise. We paid on average about $125/month with very little heat pump or A/C. Loads of activities -- we're PickleBall players (14 outdoor courts), but there are many other activities. Three pool (one seawater). Excellent entertainment in ballroom. - User1723

This park came recommended to us by an RV mobile technician when we were visiting another park near Phoenix. This is a unique RV Resort. It is a destination park rather than an overnight stay park. You can rent daily, weekly or monthly. We very much enjoyed the people and the activities. The lots are large 2400 square feet or larger they are all back in sites. Lots vary in landscaping from bare gravel lots to fully covered ports with Casitas. Lots are deeded rather than owned by a commercial park. Rent directly from owners or a service. Amenities includes a volunteer run restaurant serving breakfast and lunch in season. The food is excellent. Pickleball, Golf, Tennis, Billards, Pottery, Scheduled Entertainment and Tours. It is easy access from the 303 loop and I-10 interstate. Spring training baseball games less than 5 miles away. The golf club outside the gate also has good food and serves a Cod fish fry dinner for 5 to 7 pm each Friday night. - Gypsymaus

Overall this was a decent park. VERY quiet at night. Being a golf resort they stop you at the gate and have someone guide you to your site and after you're set up you go to the registration building about 1/3 mile away from sites. The gravel site was long and wide but a bit muddy in spots. The utilities worked great although the water hook up was placed at the far back of the site and we needed two hoses to reach our rig. All told we would stay there again. - jnk450

Kinda pricey - but a VERY good looking place - I didn't use any of the facilities - BOY ! did they have facilities - everything but the kitchen sink - check out their amenities - it took a while to register as the gal listed them all - hair salon, restaurant, gym, sports fields. I was using the place for a stopover (stayed 2 nights) and to meet an old friend on my way along my cross-country trip. - D Ward

What a luxury resort...a waterfall at the pool, fireplace by the hot tub, a golf course, pickle ball, every amenity you can think of except shuffleboard. Abundant floral, trees and shrubs. A palm tree at every RV lot of which there are 550 RV spots. - Barbara Smith
Dec 2013 - $20.00
A small campground that is a little tight to navigate. They don't have a minimum trailer length or maximum age to camp like most other places around here have. - Artlamah

Very small and parking is bad. - gracieo
Apr 2017 - $44.00
Unfortunately we've heard this park has been closed and purchased by the city. They have other plans for the property. Planes, trains, and automobiles! Noise was definitely noticeable. All are basically next door. We enjoyed our stay and the park was very convenient for Mariner and Padres games. - SandyBBB

We've found it! An OASIS in the desert! Donorma RV Park is absolutely a gem. We are so lucky to have found this park. It is not like the sterile parks where they have 80' palm trees that offer no shade, and everyone is stacked up against the neighbors like sardines. The lots come in a variety of sizes to fit most RV's.
Donorma has trees that offer shade, grass, the green mowable variety, a smorgasbord of cacti to check out, humming birds, and bunch of bunnies running around. The management staff (family) are very friendly and helpful. Pretty much everyone was involved in getting us in our space and set up correctly.
We found Donorma while looking for a RV park in the area using Google Maps. All the trees we saw are what drew us to it. We also noticed that it had a pool. Sadly, the pool has now been filled in, and more gravel seems to be arriving daily.
What really made this park stand out from the other parks was the fact that it wasn't a sterile gravel lot, or slabs of concrete and asphalt like all the others we looked at. These RV parks do nothing but radiate heat late into the night which everyone tries to avoid any time of day when you're in the desert.
Anyone that has ever spent any part of the summer season in an RV in the desert looks forward to shade, and a pool, to get away from the endless sun, and heat. We hope the owners realize what a unique gem they have here.
Pro's - Friendly management, trees, green, lots of shade, quiet, location, very clean bathrooms, onsite propane, washers/dryers, pets allowed.
Con's - No pool now, more gravel than needed. - Stone n Pebbles

We stayed at Donorma RV Park for the Winter of 2016, November thru April. This park is such a great place to stay! We found the managers to be very kind and helpful. They work hard to keep up the park and are always doing landscaping or taking care of the grounds in one way or another. It is a family-managed park and so the park has a family feel to it. There are showers and bathrooms as well as 4 washers and dryers for the visiting rver's to use. There are chickens and rabbits and numerous birds if you like animals. There are pets allowed as well. It has a number of pull thru sites and accommodates rv's up to 40'. This is an oasis in the desert as the landscaping uses fruit and hardwood trees as well as many varieties of flowering plants and bushes. It is a very nice park with very nice people managing. - KarenFay

If you are traveling in an RV go somewhere else, almost the entire park is park trailers and the area they put short term stays in is a sand parking lot with no trees or grass but a nice view of the dumpsters. For what it costs this is the worst park ever! - wildcat77
Mar 2019 - $50.00
Imagine if you're staying here all winter they would put you in a nicer spot. Short time campers are put way in the back on gravel and are very close together. There are no trees, nothing green whatsoever. It worked out for what we needed though. The staff are very friendly and you have access to a lovely pool area, very large laundry room, and shower area. - kks

This a nice clean rv park with a very pretty pool area. We were there to visit friends in the area so we didn't make use of the facilities, but they looked very nice! We would stay again if in the area. - Admiral II

The staff were very nice, had easy access, and was gated. We had a premium end site so it was a little bigger, but no grass. Our large dog was not happy! Great over night spot and we would stay again. We didn't get to spend much time in the park because we got there late and then went to dinner with friends at a really good Mexican restaurant, "Fiesta Americana". We only were there one night. - dejavu

Nice clean park, friendly staff, easy to get in and out of. Our site was an end pull thru a little short for our 34 ft coach with tow dolly and car, once the car was off it was just long enough. Pipe in the concrete was cocked. I was not able to screw my bayonet in had to use a rock to hold it in place. The pool was clean, they have a small putting green and a pickle ball court, the rec hall and gym were nice. The OTA was good, Wifi was just ok it was slow so we used our hot spot. They have many fruit trees that you are welcome to pick from. There are restaurants and excellent food shopping close by. Their 6 month rates a very good, this would be a great snowbird park without the crowds of Mesa but still close enough to Phoenix. - Tfrout
Feb 2019 - $34.00
Nice RV park with easy access off I-10. Most of the sites are back in but they have pull through sites that look like they are kept for shorter term stays. The pull through site was long enough to keep the toad connected. The pull through sites are next to a nice dog run, but a long way to pool, restrooms, activity center and showers. The building are closed at night so there is no restroom, etc, access. There is no free wifi in the park. To use the wifi, you need to go to the activity hall or event center which is not convenient. The park is clean and the roads and wide and getting around was easy. There is a canal right behind the RV park with a dirt trail that goes on for many, many miles. It is great for dog walking, running, walking, etc. We did not stay long but the pool, spa, pickleball courts and exercise room looked nice. We would stay there again. - Ludmilla

This Park has both short and long term residences. We stayed in the pull through sites at the back of the park they are very close tougher but works fine for short stays. . The longer term sites are back in and very wide. We find this a good spot when visiting the area. The services are fine and the people are great. - JDR

This is a Snowbird park, which was fortunately half empty - lots of Mobile homes and permanent residents. We were in a smaller "pull through" section, sites were level but very close together - not even 10 feet between campers. Small concrete pad at back of site, no picnic tables and with a tiny wannabe tree, so no shade from the high Arizona temps! Location was very close to all major shops and services but a long way from downtown Phoenix. - Retired Wanderers
Apr 2016 - $22.00
The park is well located near shopping and restaurants. Paved roads were smooth and RV site was level and clean. We enjoyed the big resort pool. There are mostly older retired folks and many mobiles and park models, with a few short term RV spots here and there. The view out your window will be a mobile home. We felt safe and secure in this park. - Kason rolling

If you have pets, forget this park: There is no designated pet area. The front gate is a bit tight if you are pulling a long trailer. The majority of this park is for 55+ residents who reside in trailers, very few RV spaces and some of them are very tight. Most of the residents are not pet friendly and your dog will need to potty on the street or on your lot; come to think of it, most of the residents are not friendly - period. The Park is gated, which is a plus. The park has a few planned activities for their guests, but we only attended the occasional Saturday donuts social. Reasonable rates for an extended stay, we spent three months in this park. - Dave Scott
