THE RESORT RV PARK
“The small park with a big heart.”
If you want to understand The Resort RV Park, all you need to do is understand how it’s motto came into existence…
When the editor of the park’s newsletter drafted several potential mottos, the park owner, Al LaCanne, said, “Instead, let’s get suggestions from the residents, then ask them to vote.” They did and thus “The small park with a big heart” defines how residents themselves describe the park.

What does it mean to be a small park with a big heart?
The Resort has 792 spaces, which we think is just about the perfect size. It’s big enough to have an endless stream of activities all season long, and all the amenities of the giant corporate parks, without the big crowds. Plus, we have a sister park, Silveridge, a few blocks away, and residents invite each other to their events and facilities.
As for “big heart,” that’s our residents describing the friendships and upbeat spirit of the place. In a recent survey, about nine out of ten residents said they would recommend The Resort to friends and relatives, and a similar proportion rated the staff as “warm and friendly.”
New residents quickly feel right at home because the park has a cross section of folks from states around the U.S. and Canada. You’ll find special dinners/events for Canadians, and for those from Wisconsin, the Dakotas, Washington, Oregon, Minnesota and many others.
The Resort isn’t owned or run by some anonymous corporation in Manhattan or Shanghai; members of the management team all live in the park or in the surrounding metro Phoenix area.
We think The Resort is so special that we welcome comparisons to other parks…
Price Value Comparisons
Every year, Al LaCanne, and Aileen Gunning do a comparison to other nearby RV resorts and send it to all residents. The document compares prices, what’s included in those prices, and also the density, in lots per acre. You can see a PDF of those comparisons by clicking below…
What you’ll see is that The Resort is not the cheapest park in town, but it compares favorably to neighboring parks. And that’s true even though the density of The Resort is far lower than other nearby parks.
When you visit The Resort you’ll quickly notice the wide streets and how the place is not crowded with homes squished in together. The Resort has fewer than 10 lots per acre, which is half the rate of some neighboring parks.
(Prices in the PDF are from the most recent research, conducted Feb-Mar, 2016)
If you’re not worn out from all the clubs and amenities, you can choose from onsite social events and the resort nightlife.
Holiday events, like the Mardi Gras Parade, and the Christmas parade of decorated golf carts
The ever-popular weekly “Bash” every Friday in the season, with special entertainment and meals, musical groups and dances – residents look forward to seeing favorite bands return each year (like the Southwest Surfers and their Salute to the Beach Boys or the Blues Brothers tribute) and to discovering new ones.
During the season we have a full-time Activities Director, and she and her staff work to keep everyone smiling.
Take all of that together and it’s no wonder The Resort’s residents call it
“The small park with the big heart.”
