Mesa AZ 2 night stay recomendation

Looking at this Sunday and Monday night.
MH is 42' and towing a 4 door JK and its first trip towing and likely will be solo.


I would like a drive through spot that has easy access from the freeway, I'll be coming in from Hwy 93 to 60 to 202 to near Apache Junction area.


Shade is a plus but have 3 slides with awnings so ...and need full hook ups 50amp



Recommendations welcome and any words of wisdom.


Thanks so much!

You might as well get the best view for your stay. Lost Dutchman State Park in Apache Junction has large sites.

Prepare to be HOT! It has been around110į here lately and there is no shade. Personally I would park that rig in the lot of a nice hotel and enjoy the amenities like a pool and AC.

For those of us that live here full time hot is 115* plus. Looks like we hit that today. 3 AC's in an RV is not enough as far as I'm concerned, rather be in a resort living it up.

Itís way to hot for Lost Duchman state park. I would check out Valle DelíOro RV RESORT. Itís right where the 202 and Hwy 60 intercept. They use to park overnighters right next to the club house but you may get a big space since you are staying two nights. And yes you will need all of those ACís blowing all of the time.

I am a bit confused. I live ~1 mile from Valle Del Oro and about 10 miles from Lost Dutchmen and I can tell you the only difference will be electric service. Is it that the generator won't run all 3 AC's at once? While that may make it easier it is still going to be freaking hot, even with 3 AC's running.

The OP was planning his stay this past Sunday/Monday. He probably has left already.

Lost Dutchman would have the same temps as Valle Del Oro.

Lost Dutchman also has 68 sites with 50/30/20 electric.

We volunteered there.... awesome park!

Just an FYI. These are Cal Am Resorts. None of them are accepting reservations for the rest of the summer, per their websites.
