Mesa Spirit RV Resort Celebrates Half-Century of Business in 2014!


Mesa Spirit entrance then when it was "Travel Trailer Village"..

In 1964, Jerry Williams and Jack Garsky built and incorporated Travel Trailer Village, an RV Park in Mesa near Main & Lindsey. In Nov 1971, Wilfred (Whitey) Dunkel purchased the park and his family still owns and operates the park today. In 2002, the parks name was changed to Mesa Spirit RV Resort and in Feb 2014, the Park will be celebrating 50 years of business!

Nida Stroup moved to the resort in 1979. She and her husband started off as volunteers where they organized the library every morning & evening just to keep it straight. In 1986, Nida took a job at the park and is still employed today. “When I moved here in 1979” says Stroup, “The north side of University drive was orange groves. Baseline Rd was a 2 lane going into Phoenix and the 60 was the 360 - a county road that only went to Gilbert Rd.”

The park will be celebrating their 50 years of business in Feb 2014 with a customer appreciation party and the public is invited to attend. The party will have feature stations all around the park to showcase the 1800 spaces and 88.1 acres from Main and University between Lindsey to Val Vista.
