Black Rock RV Village

Black Rock RV Village in Salome has added numerous sports courts and dog parks.

MH Residential LLC, which co-owns and operates 14 parks across southern Arizona, California and Texas, has completed more than $1 million in park improvements in preparation for the upcoming winter season, according to a press release.

The improvements include the installation of new swimming pools and hot tubs, improvements to community rooms, bocce ball and pickleball courts, dog parks, and other enhancements.

“Snowbirds who stay at our portfolio of parks this winter are going to love the improvements,” said Michael Yamin, a spokesman for MH Residential LLC, which owns 14 parks either on its own or in partnership with other investors.

MH Residential has also opened its RV parks to people of all ages, which enables the company to accommodate the growing numbers of young families and people under 55 who have purchased RVs during the pandemic. The absence of age restrictions is particularly attractive to RVers visiting southern Arizona, where most RV parks are restricted to people 55 and over.

“We’re trying to make our parks as accessible as possible to everyone who enjoys the RV lifestyle,” Yamin said.

Improvements at MH Residential properties include enhancements at the following parks in the following states:

The park’s putt-putt course is being refurbished as well and new landscaping is being installed. The park includes 71 RV sites, seven cabins, eight tent sites and one loft apartment.
