Amazing time at an amazing campground! I just had to leave a review after seeing some of these older ones. This campground is large and spread out and NICE. Beautiful and well cared for. I don’t know if it’s new owners but they definitely care and put a lot into making sure campers have a great time. We got fresh eggs delivered right to our site, and firewood every night delivered just by texting. It’s quiet, the bathrooms are clean and new. Everything looks new. We had a great time and will be back!

Wonderful RV park in beautiful desert park surroundings. Owner was a lovely young lady, brought us firewood and a picnic table. Very nice hike right out the back, lots of saguaro cacti. Great campfire location, great camping location! We really loved our time here- thank you Deanna!

My young daughter and I have lived at Wild West for nearly a year now and we couldn't be happier to be away from the hustle and bustle of the city. The park is beautiful, the bathhouses/restrooms which are coded for additional security are cleaned and inspected on a daily basis and the showers are spacious! The FREE WI-FI is amazing, even with running two smart TV's and a tablet at the same time. The onsite laundry room is newly air conditioned and also immaculate. The office which was remodeled and just opened a few months ago is full of delicious treats, drinks, and just about every beer and wine your heart could desire. The owners, Nash & Deanna will bend over backwards to make your stay amazing with fire pits, grills and picnic tables. The neighbors have become family in a way you just can't get in a traditional neighborhood. The night skies away from all the lights are perfect for stargazing, enjoying the quiet or conversing with great people. You won't be disappointed when you come to visit!

Fellow RVers: STEER CLEAR OF THIS UNETHICAL PLACE. Our experience this past winter at Wild West Ranch & RV Park (formerly John Wayne RV Ranch, LLC) in Maricopa, Arizona We paid a $100.00 deposit via credit card to this campground on 11/10/2017 for a month's stay beginning on 12/18/2017. Upon arrival, we wrote a check for $400.00 for the monthly rent. We left the campground on 1/13/2018, and my husband had made arrangements earlier in the week to return for another month beginning on 1/28/2018. Our credit card was charged by the campground for our electricity usage through 1/13/2018 on 1/29/2018. The amount charged was overstated, and a credit was issued to our card for the difference. We had not authorized this charge. Upon our return to Wild West on 1/28/2018, we wrote another check for $400.00 to cover the month ending on 2/28/2018. (At this time, our initial $100.00 deposit is still on the books as a credit). On the morning of our departure, March 1, 2018 we discovered the campground had charged our credit card 5 times between 10:57 and 11:08 am on 1/28/2018 for a total of $80.00 for electricity usage. We had not authorized this charge. We went to the office to inquire and ask for a final invoice along with the return of the deposit since it had not been used. I was told we would not receive our deposit because we owed money to the campground. We totally disagree with this and they have offered no proof of it. The owner Deanna R. Wilson-Alkateeb (wife) was offsite and would only communicate via text. The owner Naji Alkateeb (husband) was onsite but offered nothing but insults to my husband. As of this post, we have yet to receive any communication from the campground and our many emails and texts continue to go unanswered. We have filed a complaint with BBB-Arizona. A complaint has been filed with our bank as well. It turns out, this is not an isolated incident, and other campers have had similar problems involving the return of deposits and unauthorized credit card charges. There are several reviews out there. CAUTION: DO NOT USE YOUR CREDIT CARD WITH THIS CAMPGROUND!

We stayed for two months, paid our rent and paid our electric. Things were ok for the most part. Met a lot of nice people. Our problem is that we can't get our credit due us from the electric deposit of $100.00. After leaving message after message after message, we finally went to the office at the campground to check on our refund. At that time, we were told it usually takes 30 days and will be refunded back to the card with which we paid the deposit on. That is all fine, but why couldn't someone just call me back and communicate this to us. We left on January 2nd, 2018 and it is now February 15, and we still have do not have our credit. I have left two messages since our visit to the office on 2/5/18 to let them know we still do not have our credit and once again, there has been no response. We do not appreciate the lack of communication with the manager or the owners. Obviously, someone doesn't care about the situation once the customer checks out. Also, besides the reviews you read on here and elsewhere, we met another camping couple at another campground and they stayed at Wild West RV Resort 6 years ago and they never received a response from the owner and have not, to this day, received their credit for their electric bill. I don't understand how a person can run a business in the manner these seem to run theirs and feel good about themselves.

Unethical Owners. After contacting them three times for deposit back due to husband's illness, I still have not received my deposit back. I cancelled two months prior to our stay in January. I now believe all the bad reviews! Do not do business with this RV park.

After calling dozens of RV parks, this is the only one that did not have any restrictions on age or occupancy, and it was the most inexpensive! Due to mechanical issues we arrived after midnight, and the owner was nice enough to get out of bed and show us to our spot. We stayed January-May with our 5 children age range 12-4 and all of us were sad to go. So peaceful and quiet. It's perfect for the low maintenance traveler who wants to just relax and enjoy the beauty of the Sonoran desert. I felt safe here with the kids while my husband attended school in Phoenix (an easy commute.) The only drama was residents who refused to pay had to be removed from the park, but that didn't affect us. About a quarter of the park are long termers who are either helpful or keep to themselves. The landscaping is nice with mature trees that provide shade and a citrus orchard. Clean bathrooms and large laundry facility. The office also seconds as a small convenience store. Oversized slips, plenty of walking trails and desert area to explore. Amazing sunset views of Tabletop Mountain and huge saguaro cacti. The kids enjoyed movie nights in the clubhouse, riding their bikes around the park, and plenty of nights around campfires with new friends. We have nothing but great memories of our time here.

My family had so much fun here! The staff was so nice and helpful. There were a plethora of very spacious sites that I think could fit a lot of different size rigs. There were a lot of great amenities they offered that was more than what we needed. We also found all of the wondrous activities were fulfilling, fun, and relaxing! I really enjoyed the location as there were so many beautiful sights that surrounded the campground and there were so many great places that were only a short drive away to eat or shop. My boys loved the off-roading trails as they say “epic”. - Review provided by RV Park Recommendations & Reviews Facebook Group
