“Great experience for the whole family!”

Reviewed Jul 22, 2019

Overall Rating

We are on a trip with two families in a 32' motor home (12 people stuffed in here). Since all but 4 of us are kids, we wanted to tour the caves. We were originally assigned space #45 but we couldn't level the long motor home. The campground host, Charlie, was very nice and asked us if we wanted a more level spot. Turns out #44 and ... more

“Pleasant and quiet”

Reviewed May 29, 2019

Overall Rating

We spent two nights here the first of May 2019. Lovely park. Only about half full at the time so very quiet. Water pressure and 50 amp electrical worked well. Sites were good sized and paved. Not totally level but only needed a couple leveling pads under one corner to correct. Site was easy to find and access. Bathrooms clean and nice.... more

“Spacious Campground”

Reviewed May 02, 2019

Overall Rating

We stayed here for 3 nights at the end of April. Upon arrival we were greeted cheerfully from the entrance host and throughout our visit we were treated very kindly from everyone. We found our site which was well groomed prior to our arrival. The campground is very easy to navigate and our spot, 46, was easy to back into, mostly level,... more

“Nice State Park in Southern AZ”

Reviewed Apr 15, 2019

Overall Rating

We stayed at this park for a long weekend and found that it was quite full when we arrived. Over-flow parking was the only area available aside from reserved spots. The first day was chilly and cold at night, but with heat in the trailer, it didn't matter. During the day it warmed nicely and the second two days were sunny and enjoyab... more

We loved this campground. This was our first stop on our full time RV adventures and we were definitely spoiled with the park. The grounds and scenery are absolutely beautiful. Night sky is really spectacular. You have neighbors but aren't sitting on top of each other. We had water and electricity hookups as well as a picnic table and ... more

Pros: -Cavern tours were great and hiking around the camping area is nice and easy. Cons: -We were told that we reserved an "RV" campsite when checking in. The website doesn't differentiate and reads RV/tent on our site. The host saw we were tent camping (along with our our young children) and tried to have us move to another site... more

“Mostly Quiet, Beautiful Skies, Okay Stop”

Reviewed Oct 11, 2018

We stayed for 2 nights so that we could see the Caverns and drive over to Tombstone. All in all it was an okay stay, nothing too special except the views at night and seeing the actual caverns themselves. The actual campsite is set up really strange, fire pits far away from picnic benches, some sites large and separated while others ar... more

This was our first time at this campground and we found it to be clean, quiet and the sites are pretty spacious. Aside from the amazing cavern tour there is hiking right from the campground and it's a short drive to other interesting SE Arizona towns like Tombstone and Bisbee. Water pressure was lower than some other campground we've v... more

Did you know this place was voted “best cave in the US”? We didn’t either, but after our Rotunda/Throne Room Tour we could see why. Our guide was fantastic and we met for the tour just a short walk from our campsite. The campground itself was wonderful. We had a spacious site with a picnic table and fire pit, EW hookups we’re great... more
