Desert’s Edge RV Village A Happy, Active Resort for All Ages Desert’s Edge RV Village, located in north Phoenix, is a bright, happy, active place. The commons areas and all 210 full-hookup sites have a colorful purple, green, yellow and terra cotta desert landscaping, satellite TV and concrete patios. Some have storage sheds. Big rigs and slideouts are easily accommodated on the spacious standard, premium, or desert garden sites. While most guests drive or pull their own rigs, other choose the convenience of staying in the charming and fully furnished rental casitas with their two patios and ample parking. These folks get all the benefits of an RV lifestyle, but don’t need to tow the RV! Staff and guests laugh easily and often, children make new friends while swinging or sliding at the playground; adult chat by the mailboxes, at the sites, or in the activity rooms; well behaved pets guide their well trained parents to the well kept dog walk. Not only is Desert’s Edge located adjacent to I-17, but it is close enough to Loop 101 and SR 51 that guests have easy access to attractions in all of the cities in the Valley of the Sun. Guests of all ages enjoy an active lifestyle - soaking with a glass of wine in the spa, participation in the water aerobics or exercise class, cooking at the convenient gas barbecues, working out in the fitness center, playing horseshoes, basketball or bocce. Many join other guests and their visitors at the monthly breakfasts, Friday afternoon Happy Hours, or participate in casino trips and other outings. Some guests take advantage of the easy access to the Glendale Arena or to the Peoria Sports Complex and Challenger Learning Center. Still others golf with friends in Sun City or family members in Paradise Valley. PR OF ILE
