Leaf Verde RV Resort

While in Buckeye we stayed at the Leaf Verde RV ResortIt's not a terrible park, for one night. They lead you to your site and explain the rules to you.  Our guide was very pleasant.

Interior roads are paved.  Sites are on packed sand.  It's the kind of sand that jumps on into your flip flops and bugs your feet.  Sites are not level, we were nose down and tipped to the passenger side.  The HWH was able to get us level.  Verizon 4G was good.

The water is my biggest complaint.  It tastes terrible.  How terrible?  It was bad enough that coffee made with water filtered through a carbon block filter, and a Brita still tasted bad.  Water pressure was abysmal.  Showers required some use of the water pump.

Apparently the legislators in Maricopa county don't have enough to do, so they passed a law saying that if you use a sewer hose, it must be elevated.  Many Class A RVs, including us, don't use the rack that holds up the sewer hose.  You must have one here.

Other than that, it's ok for an overnight.  It is convenient to the west side of Phoenix.  There was no freeway noise.

On their web site, at the top of the page, in about 3 point print, there is the word Location.  I didn't notice it and I didn't check it.  It seems to me that this might be worth giving a little more presence on the web site.  Or maybe it could be mentioned on the phone, when one calls for a reservation.  This is why we ended up out in the corn fields with my hair on fire. 
*Eastbound: I-10 to exit 114 Miller Road, South (right) 0.3 miles to Durango Street, East (left) on Durango Street 1.4 miles to Apache Road (Durango Street turns into Yuma Road), South (right) on Apache Road to Leaf Verde RV Resort.

Please make a note of this if you need an overnight in Buckeye.
