Monte Vista RV Resort is located at 8865 E. Baseline Road in Mesa, Arizona.
In our opinion, this is one of the nicest RV parks that we have experienced. As I am sure most of you realize, we are full time RVers. So after having stayed at many parks in our
travels, that is saying something!!
Monte Vista is a 55+ RV park that is part of the Thousand Trails system. But it can also be be reserved outside that system though for about $70 a night.
There are weekly savings too that can make it a little more affordable. And campsites also can be reserved through RPI at a discounted amount.
Just an FYI, to enter the RV section of the park you need to use the entrance on Steven Pollard Avenue. This entrance is easy to access from both the AZ 202 Loop and Route 60.
Monte Vista RV Resort Features
Ability to move any size rig around in this park is very easy. However, we found that you do need to have a security guard that takes you to your site. It’s a resort requirement.
Also when you arrive, they make sure you have access key cards to use all the ammenities of the park.
We have read some reviews online that say that they do not welcome RV’s over 10 years of age. However, we did not find that to be a big issue.
Although they do want a picture of your rig, especially if it is older than 10 years. But there were many rigs in the park that were over 10 years. Ours included!!!!
The sites are concrete pads with full hookups which include 50, 30, and 20 amps. And all of the sites are spacious and mostly level to accommodate any size rig.
They have gravel in between each site which definitely keeps the dust level down especially in such a dry climate.
Monte Vista RV Resort Amenities
The RV section of the resort is fairly new with its own clubhouse, laundry room and pool. You do have access to the other parts of the park though which include 4 other pools, one of which is salt water.
There are also tennis courts, fitness rooms, pickleball, billiard tables and a softball field. So there are many activities at Monte Vista RV Resort to stay busy.
But if you want to just relax and take strolls through the park, fountains and beautiful landscaping await you too. And quail and bunnies run freely wherever you go.
The residents are very friendly and there are a number of dog parks for your furry friends.
A large section of this park contains park models that have full time residents or are occupied by snowbirds. But this does not detract from the park at all.
They all keep their homes up very nicely which make it a pleasant place to be in. They attend to their orange, grapefruit, and lemon trees and share with others when its harvest time.
The resort gives you a friendly feeling and is located in a safe area with full time security guards on patrol. Again all pluses!!!!
Monte Vista RV Resort Surroundings
Enough about the park….how about the area? Well, you are located near just about everything.
Grocery stores (Albertsons, Basha’s, Fry’s and Walmart) abound in the area. Restaurants serving just about any kind of food you desire are nearby too.
And the park is close to highways that take you to other parts of the Phoenix valley very quickly.
One wonderful plus we enjoyed is being near Apache Junction with the beautiful views of the Superstition Mountains. (You can even see them from your RV site)
There also is a fantastic flea market on Friday-Sunday nearby with many vendors selling lots of wares. You can find almost anything there.
This is located all within about 15 to 20 minutes at the most from Monte Vista. And Albertsons is located literally right across the street from the resort.
Nearby Shopping Opportunities
There are also other stores like Home Depot, Lowes, CVS, and Walgreens nearby. Your big box stores are all around you too. So as you can see, it is very centrally located for almost anything you need.
Do you like outside activites???? Then there are many trails nearby that allow you to hike through the beautiful valley.
Not far away are state parks that offer many outdoor activities too. And beautiful lakes within a half hour drive. The list goes on and on. I think you can see why we like this resort!!!!!
One more thing…how about connectivity? Well, being located in such a large populated area, there seems to be no problem with any of the carriers.
Also, Monte Vista offers their own internet access that you can take advantage of as well.
There is an extra charge for this service, but it doesn’t seem outrageous for what they offer. So it might be an option especially if you will be staying with them for a while.
So with all this being said, how would we rate Monte Vista? We would give it a 5 star rating.
The only thing that might be improved on is some of their office personnel could be just
a bit friendlier. But frankly, you have very little interaction with them at all though.
We have always enjoyed our stays there and will be going back again as the winter season approaches.
Thanks Monte Vista for a GREAT experience at your resort!!!!!
