"The fitness room offers modern equipment, there is a heated pool and hot tub, a well equipped wood working shop is also used by mentored gourd carvers, additional mentored classes and activities are a real plus. A beautiful courtyard and Serenity garden with tables and seating are landscaped with flowers and native plants and fountains. The park is noted for extremely clean, large tiled bathrooms, showers and a laundry. The conscientious staff are always available to handle anything that arises with the grounds, buildings and nature trails being kept in tip top shape by staff along with onsite park managers, and caring owners showing their pride of ownership."

"Roy and I sold our home in San Diego in 1996 and have been full-time RVers ever since. We have always been looking for the place where we would ultimately settle down. When we drove into Desert Gardens after Thanksgiving 2007, we were hooked so we bought a lot. What a beautiful park -- all of the gorgeous cacti and the way the park is maintained, beautiful buildings, exercise room, activity center, laundry, shop, pool, and spa. The managers are hard working and extremely friendly individuals who make Roy and me very happy in our new home."
-Roy and Darlene Leggitt, Lot Owners
"Desert Gardens is an Oasis in the Sonoran Desert. The Park is truly special. Having made 10 coast to coast trips in the 8 years since we retired, we've visited them all. As far as the sites themselves, even the smallest of these sites are larger than most you will find in any other rv resort. With only 266 spaces, it is very different than the mega parks in Mesa and Casa Grande. We have made good friends and formed short-term friendships with renters. As renters, we were visited by the Welcome Committee and felt this wonderful, respectful, friendly demeanor that dominates the park as a stand out from other parks - especially since we had an opportunity to purchase one of these beautiful sites. Nowhere have we found sites as large and luxurious as these for the price and we have enough privacy space so as not to feel crowded. We love being in the Saguaro Desert - and have a 150 year old Saguaro growing naturally on our site - where else would anyone find that, or better, still own it!? The landscaping in the park respects the desert locale and doesn't try to create an artificial tropical oasis. We now can stay for as long or short as we wish in the desert, 'up close and personal' with the plants and animals that call the desert home. There simply is no comparison."

“A new owner is selling lots and renting them. If we were ready to settle down in one spot, we would definitely purchase here at Desert Gardens. The people are very friendly and welcoming. The staff is great and the new pool and spa are spotless and soothing. Lots of activities to choose from. The setting is beautiful as the campground is surrounded by the natural desert. Saguaro cacti are everywhere; the sunsets are unobstructed; and you can really commune with nature. The campsites are some of the widest we have ever seen -- wonderful privacy with space to stretch out and full hook-ups. This park has spoiled us – in some other parks you park side-by-side with other RV's and your awnings practically touch and you can look into their windows. We will definitely come back here for a very long stay.”
