Having the opportunity to spend time here at Ponderosa RV Resort and get out of the heat of the Valley of the Sun was amazing! I’ve spent a total of 4 1/2 months here so far and I’ve had a blast. There are community events during the day and night, on weekends and Bingo on Thursdays. The lots are well-maintained and spacious. The park offers free Wi-Fi but if you’re staying for three months or longer you can set up Sparklight Internet and cable TV. They have 30 amp & 50 amp power stations, public restrooms, a community center, and a dog park. There is a mixture of full-time and part-time residents and the people are a lot of fun. The park is open year-round for rentals. There are many places nearby that you can go visit, craft fairs, art shows, dog parks, and entertainment. It’s also a great jumping off point for day trips up to Winslow, Big Lake, and Sunrise Park Ski Resort.
