Nelles Ranch RV spot
The site was a perfect location for us while visiting a friend in Scottsdale. Not a typical campsite, it is next to the host’s house, but works well as a home base for sightseeing. We were grateful for the electrical hookup which we had not anticipated. After a slight misunderstanding about where to set up our trailer, Louise did her best to be accommodating.

Great location and hosts!
We stayed at Nelles Ranch with our 33ft fifth wheel. The map directions were easy to follow and got us there with no issues. Be aware its down dirt roads but in town really cool area with lots of space. We got parked and set up quite easily. Louise is a wonderful hostess and even brought us fresh baked muffins! The hookups were definitely welcome after weeks of off-grid camping. We would definitely stay again.

Nelles Ranch RV spot
Louise is incredibly nice and welcoming. She has full hookups (I have 30amp and that’s what she had for me, I don’t know if she has 50amp). You are located in a neighborhood that has dirt roads, so be ok with dust driving in and out. Very quiet except at sundown when the coyotes and other animal howl for a bit but I heard that in a few other camping spots outside of Phoenix and nothing to fear. Definitely recommend

Very peaceful setting
Louise is a great host! She’s very welcoming and friendly. She even helped me back my trailer! This is such a tranquil setting, with lots of shopping nearby including a target just 2 minutes away. I definitely recommend staying here.
