This was our first visit to Kartchner Caverns State Park and we really loved it. Kartchner Caverns State Park is simply one of the many beautiful Arizona State Parks. Everything was perfectly maintained from the landscaping to the showers and restrooms. The visitor center was beautiful as well and the staff, very friendly and more t... more

“A great AZ State Park!”

Reviewed Mar 28, 2018

Overall Rating

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

“Cave tours and excellent camping”

Reviewed Mar 28, 2018

Overall Rating

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

“Fantastic spacious sites in a pretty state park”

Reviewed Feb 24, 2018

Overall Rating

Overall, we were very happy with this campground. Sites are spaced far from one another and there are trees scattered throughout the campground, offering a sense of space and privacy. We were in an end space, so we had no neighbor on our driver's side and a very large "yard" on our awning side. In front of us were fields of tall grasse... more

“Beautiful campground with wide open spaces”

Reviewed Jan 30, 2018

Overall Rating

Our 37' toy hauler and long-bed F350 fit perfectly into site 16. Low water pressure. Camp Host told me not to use my pressure regulator. Sites are very uneven front to back and I barely had enough leveling blocks to get level even with fully extended tongue jack.

Best of all, the caverns are amazing!

“Nice new campground adjacent to the Kartchner Caverns”

Reviewed Jan 26, 2018

Overall Rating

The campground is laid out in a relatively open space, at the base of some small foothills. Not the most beautiful scenery, but the facilities were very nice and very clean. The campground is very convenient to the Caverns (an easy .25 mile walk), but the giant parking lot for the Caverns is pretty well shielded from view if you're i... more

“Nice experience - came here without reservation, just knocked on host's door”

Reviewed Dec 20, 2017

Overall Rating

Clean, heated bathroom.
Nice fire ring, table + benches on every site.

Slept in the car, but tent camping would have also been possible.
Very nice sunset, cool location.

Fire ring is not next to table, so warming up on fire does only work, if you bring your own chairs.

We found KCSP to have a great campground. It was well maintained and there were excellent views of the rugged desert hills and mountains all around. Trails provide a short walk to the visitor center which is where the cavern tours start. There are also trails from the CG to hike the hills and mountains surrounding you. Check ou... more
