Campsite Review: Pleasant Harbor Campground

Campsite Review: Pleasant Harbor Campground

Campsite Review: Pleasant Harbor Campground is located southeast of Lake Pleasant about twenty miles northwest of Phoenix Arizona.

This is not a review of the normal RV park or the sites on the edge of the lake. We didn’t do anything like normal camping. The white marker on the satellite view marks the location of our RV which was parked there intentionally, by our choice, in fact, we rented “two spots” right next to each other, one for our old RV and one for our new RV. The entire purpose of our stay was to move, from one RV to the other, without walking very far.

The fee for parking in this open lot also covered our entrance fee into the resort and I think it covered access to the amenities, but I am not sure. We were there to move from one RV to the other and sleep.

For us, this situation, in the middle of an open gravel parking area was ideal. Here is the link to our story about our move from the newer RV to our nicer, older RV. Moving day, where to put all the stuff

Campsite Review: Pleasant Harbor Campground insider info:

From our observations, this place is very nice, but we didn’t experience any of that. Our mission was to move from one RV to our new one, with as little work as possible. The map layout below represents a small part of the actual RV park and lake edge RV parking locations. They all seemed nice. Initially, I was a little stunned at the price — for an open gravel parking lot. But it was ideal for us. The locations next to the lake were the same price as we paid, and assuming we could enjoy some of those locations and the amenities, pool, spa, and similar items, we may be back.

The desert around the area can be very beautiful, especially at sunrise and sunset. But it can also be extremely hot. Pick your season with this fact in mind.

  1. I love camping. Our family always does this every weekend, and it is one of our bonding experiences. Last week, I was looking for a new campsite, and upon searching, I stumbled across your blogs. Thank you for this writing. It helps me a lot. To make the story short, we tried this place and it was magnificent. The place is calm and quiet. For me, this condition, at the center of an open gravel parking area was exceptional and one of a kind. The fee for parking covered our entrance, but does it cover access to some of the amenities?
