Hi,

We drove through Rio Bend RV and Golf resort and Sunbeam Lake RV resort and liked them both, for a 4 month Winter stay.
The place we stayed in Gold Canyon for 8 Winters has out priced our budget, and we can stay at the above places for just over half the cost.
Being Canadian the exchange rate takes a big bite, after the banks take their ridiculous share, it costs us $1.37+ Canadian per US $, that's 37%!

Any of your thoughts and opinions would be really appreciated.

We don't golf and heard that as nice as Rio Bend is, there is a goose poop problem near the water.

Thanks in advance

Not a comment about the parks but about Canadian exchange rates. We use Knightsbridge foreign exchange to get US dollars which go into our US$ account at our Canadian bank and then is used to pay our US$ credit card. Knightsbridge rates are half a percent above the BOC rate compared to the bank rate of 2.5% above the BOC rate. It's painless, you bill pay Knightsbridge through your bank and the US cash comes into your US$ account at your bank.

Didn't think about the Fountain of Youth, it's probably the most reasonably priced park in that area, some others near Palm Springs or Borrego Springs are $2,000 a month. FOY has pools heated by geothermal water from below.
