This is a typical site in our section – nice and level with a covered picnic table and fire pit, and at least a partial view of the lake

Lake Pleasant Regional Park

There’s Betsy with our view of the lake from site #10 – nice!

Noise level and overall “feel” of the park?
This time of the year, VERY quiet and a great place to stay.  It’s
such a nice park that I’m sure it’s packed on weekends during
the summer.  Miles away from any public roads, there was no
traffic noise.  Our site (#10) was in the developed (Roadrunner)
area overlooking the lake, but far enough away that we heard
no boat engines.  My review is based on our experience in that
campground area only; the others were completely different in
their age and type of RV’s that they could handle.

Road and site access/type?
All paved in the area where we stayed, and access into sites was
easy.

Sites spacious and/or level?  Comments?
The sites in the Roadrunner campground were level.  We were
able to get the car into the site next to the RV, although it was a
bit tight.  But the area around the site was spacious, as was the
spacing between sites.  The view from sites on the lake side was
wonderful.  We think site #18 and #20 were the best – perfectly
located for overviews of the lake.

Utilities and WiFi/cell reception?
All sites were electric/water, the 50-amp power and water
pressure were strong.  Our boosted Verizon hotspot and cell
phones worked well, there was a huge cell tower right up the
hill from our site.

Picnic table and/or fire pit?
The concrete table had a cover built over it, and there was a
nice fire pit.

Bathrooms/showers/laundry room?
Another win here.  Clean and modern, with separate bathrooms
and shower rooms.  The showers were push-button, which I
don’t like because there is no temperature adjustment, but the
pressure was good and there were hooks and a nice bench for
the goodies.

Pet and/or kid friendly?
There was a “gym” area for the kids to play on.  Dogs were to be
on-leash in the camping area, but we met several people with
their dogs off-leash along the hiking trails and there were miles
of trails within the park.

Bicycle/walking trails nearby?
There was a short trail right out of our campground, and
several other longer ones a short drive away and within the
park.  Most of them were multi-use for bikes and hikers.  We
enjoyed several of the easy-to-moderate trails during our stay.

Groceries & other services nearby?
Due to the size of this park, it was about a 5-mile drive just to
get to the front gate!  The nearest grocery store was probably
Albertson’s right next to I-17, and that was 17 miles from our
site.  Just east of there were many businesses and restaurants
in the Cave Creek/Carefree area.  Heading south on I-17 is the
main freeway into Phoenix, where any major RV issues could
be handled.

Comments:
This park was a bit remote from services and other tasks we
wanted to take care of while here, but I think we’re just spoiled
and didn’t plan those things too well.  It was beautiful here in
our site overlooking the lake with easy access to several hiking
trails.  The spacious sites and quiet environment of the park
were wonderful and we would definitely stay here again.
