We arrived 8PM during the weekend of the Hot Air Balloon Festival. Although KOA prices are normally reasonable we considered the rate we paid for a lot without sewer services rather high, This was the last site avail, and it was getting late, so our choices were rather limited. Campground was fine, staff were proficient (although very busy). Overall was good, except for the price.
As first time snowbirds to Arizona, our plan was to stay 3 months at Gold Canyon and then 3 months in Florida. We were so impressed with the resort, the excellent management, the great amenities, Arizona's fantastic weather, that we purchased a Park Model after only 3 weeks. We have been here a little over 3 months and the resort has lived up to all our expectations. The other residents are great and there is a good sense of community. We plan to spend many happy years here!
