“No WiFi, Laundry Cards and Daily Resort Fee”

This resort was DEFINITELY not for us- it may not be for you either. See our opinions below... Rate listed is based on weekly rate + day rate for one day + resort fees and taxes.

*UPDATE: Our last day here the water went out at 10am. It's after 4pm and still no water. Apparently this happens a lot here. They're runnin goff well water (aquifer) and don't have proper shut off valves, so if something goes wrong, the whole park loses water. Srsly ;-/ So even if I did buy one of those laundry cards, still couldn't use it because NO WATER!

On arrival, at the gate, Voyager very proudly announces "Voted Best in the Nation." Sadly it t misses MOST of the basics that anyone who visits RV parks would reasonably expect. It does have PLENTY of extras (if that's your jam).

1) There's no complimentary WiFi for short-term guests. "WiFi hotspots throughout the park" says the website. In reality, it's four closely clustered hotspots in the center of the park that you'll probably need an installed signal repeater to pick up and a monthly subscription to use. If you want WiFi, it's $40/month (minimum). Begrudgingly, we paid that for what was only a two week stay. What we got was mostly broken and unavailable WiFi, that was slow and pretty unusable even when it did work. This 'feature' is designed for long-term residents. When asked about it, the front desk replied, "yeah, we get that complaint a lot." Really? Seems like the best in the nation might provide WiFi for their guests.

2) Good luck trying to do laundry. You can't use cash. You have to purchase a card, that only dispenses credit in non-refundable $5 increments. A wash is $2 and a dry is $1.75. This is just like 6 packs of hot dogs paired up with 8 packs of hot dog buns. It's a waste designed to get you to keep spending. Again, this is designed for residents (or folks who use Encore or TT a lot). Oh, and even if you do want to go ahead and bite the bullet for convenience, good luck actually getting one of those cards. They were out and had been out of cards for over a week. The closest laundromat was 20 minutes away.

3) There's trash pick up twice a week. But you can't put it out the night before and it must be out by 8am. And 8:30am is too late for it to get picked up. Recycling? Just get in your car, navigate a maze of signs that take you beyond the resort, and separate it all into pile of different dumpster bins.

4) For the pleasure of not having basics like WiFi, laundry, or daily trash pick up--there's an unadvertised resort fee charged per person, per day, plus tax. That's an extra $67.23 we paid for this privilege. If you don't need these things, there ARE 10 pages of activities you may enjoy if you don't work all day (like we do). But still. You're a resort charging a resort fee and you have no WiFi.

5) Get used to wearing a stupid name tag. This is a GATED 24 hour secure facility. You get checked coming in and out of the resort. Doesn't matter. If you're a guest, you always have to wear a visitor tag. Residents are fine. They don't have to wear one. Weird.

6) Okay, what else do visitors want out of an RV park? A place to get packages and mail! Good luck with that too. Expecting mail in a tight delivery window? It gets delivered to some off-site location first, and then brought in the next day. Mail hours are from 9a-12p, then 1p-4p on weekdays (less than that on Saturdays). Try getting your mail at 3:30pm on a weekday. That should work, right? Nope. The mail person went home early. And apparently NO ONE ELSE in the office, with access to that room, can go get your mail for you.

7) Are you a dog lover? Your pet is certainly welcome at Voyager. But only on certain designated streets. Don't even think about walking your dog anywhere else except these few specific areas. I'm surprised they didn't issue my dog a name tag too. They do have 2 gated dog runs and the folks in the dog section are super nice.

If you plan to be a resident and you love HOA's with tons of rules (did I mention the 20 page check-in packet?), then THIS IS THE PLACE FOR YOU! But if you're an RV'er looking to stay for a short while, you would do A LOT better to hit up the KOA just up the road. The sites are about the same, but the KOA at least nails the basics you're looking for. We stayed here because the Gem Show was in town, we needed some repairs on our RV and the KOA was full. Some folks do seem to love it here tho...just wasn't for us.

“Felt Just Like Home Right Away!”

I arrived at the Voyager on March 1, 2018 after spending a few months in Apache Junction (east of Mesa). Went here on the recommendation of people I met in Camp Verde in October.

The sites are really big with concrete patios and the staff will guide you into your site. Great cell phone signal (Verizon.) Since I was staying for 2 months, I opted for high speed WiFi through Jabba Communications for around $30/month. I believe you can also get WiFi and/or cable through the park office (pay extra for this).

If you can't find anything to do in this park, it's your fault! The Voyager has everything from Bocci and Tennis courts; classes in lapdiary, silversmithing, Native America Flute and much more! There is an on-site Nurse Practitoner, Physical Therapist and Acupuncturist and a full-service hair and nail salon! Lots of musical performances and special entertainment throughout the season; a regular Karaoke night (at the on-site restaurant which is very good and reasonably priced) and more! Very large and clean shower and laundry facilities; a community fire pit, 2 swimming pools, 2 hot tubs -- just about everything you could possibly want or need. Voyager also has a hotel on-site which is great if you have out of town company coming to visit. Easy access to The Loop - the recently completed 130-mile bike & hike route that circles the greater Tucson area.

Voyager is easy to get to -- right off I-10 - and while it's about 8 miles to the nearest grocery store, you are well out of the fray, but close enough if you want to venture into Tucson.

This park is part of Thousand Trails and was voted No. 1 in the Nation -- for good reason. Rates vary based on length of stay. They also offer an "Early Bird" discount if you book ahead for the coming year.

I will be returning to the Voyager sometime between late October/early November and plan to stay until sometime in April 2019.
