It was a holiday weekend so they were full to the max. Still a beautiful park with good hiking. All campers were quiet once the sun went down. For some a little bit of train noise but I couldn't hear it. No water at the sites and there was a warning about nitrates being in the water with caution for infants. I had a full tank of f... more

“Beautiful views and exciting hikes”

Reviewed Jun 13, 2017

Overall Rating

We stayed here in February and the weather was wonderful. I typed $30 for the price, since that's what they say on the park's website, though I swear we payed a lot less than that. I'll have to check my records to confirm that. The park is right off I-10 and a short distance from Casa Grande and not too far from Tucson. The park ... more

“Beautiful, serene, and great hikes!”

We loved the desert vibes and beautiful sunsets at Picacho Peak State Park. While the park is quiet, spacious, and laid-back, it also offers great hikes for all skill levels. We also loved the convenience of the park’s location. It’s right off interstate 10 and offers a secluded feel, but is a quick 30 to 40-minute drive to both Tucso... more

“Hiking, cacti, sunsets and mansion-sized spaces”

Reviewed Apr 27, 2017

Overall Rating

We intended to stay a few nights, but they only had room for us for one night (Arizona's reservation system leaves a lot to be desired). The park is beautiful and is a great stop if you're heading towards or from Tucson. Tons of trail, beautiful sunsets, and massive spots. We'll definitely come back. It's not really near many services,... more

Picacho Peak State Park is set just a short distance off I-10 but except for some faint background noise from the freeway and train tracks you'd think you were miles away. This is one of the cleanest and most well run state parks that we've ever stayed at. The restrooms are kept well maintained and clean and there are free showers with... more

We loved our couple of nights at Picacho Peak State Park. The campground consists of 3 loops (A, B & C). All campsites have 50amp electric and there is a dump station at the entrance to the campground with potable water. There are also 2 shower facilities which we very nice and clean. I think it might have been one of the best showers ... more

***Campground Review*** Wow, does this campground have some amazing views - with even more stunning sunsets! We came on a whim and got 2 nights (Sunday-Tuesday) without any problems with our 32ft fifth wheel. We did try to call ahead, but they would not take same day reservations.

We really enjoyed our week here. Good cell coverage on Verizon but ATT not so much. The highway and train noise is not as noticeable from "A" loop due to a large outcropping directly between. We heard it but it really never bothered us that much. The hiking is wonderful and we climbed to the top of the peak and back down in less than 3... more

Great views and great sunsets. Plenty of space between us and the neighbors. Bathrooms were excellent and seemed to have lots of hot water for showers. Site includes electricity. No water spigots in campground, have to go to the dump area at the entrance of the campground. No trash dumpsters or cans either. Those are located at... more
