“Pretty but way too close to freeway”

Reviewed Apr 15, 2019

Overall Rating

The peak and mountains are beautiful but this is just too dang close to the freeway. Not only can you hear the noise from Interstate 40 but you can see the trailing lights constantly. It truly is beautiful, but will not go again.

This is a beautiful space. Sites are large and level. Plus there is a Dairy Queen about 2 miles away. Beautiful skies and views of the mountains. Bathrooms are clean. We loved it!

“Lovely desert camping suitable for a short stop”

Reviewed Feb 26, 2019

Overall Rating

Sites at Picacho Peak are well-spaced and surrounded by desert foliage, with good views and relative privacy. The slight elevation of the campground against the base of the mountain gives excellent views of the peaks as well as the surrounding valleys. Our site was perfectly level and generously sized, and the bathhouse and dump statio... more

“Awesome spot! ”

Reviewed Feb 15, 2019

Overall Rating

Right along the highway, but you’d never know. Sites are spacious! We had cell service, plus they offer wifi at the park for about $4 per day! Amazing views. It was raining when we came in and it looked like we were entering Jurassic Park! Staying three more nights, but having to move sites based on weekend availability.

“Quiet and scenic”

Reviewed Jan 16, 2019

Overall Rating

Date of stay: Dec. 24 - Jan. 2, 2018/19 For a southern Arizona state park in the winter and over the holidays, this one doesn't seem to get the push that others do, probably because it's not as close to shopping and amenities as some other parks. The entrance gate is a tight squeeze with a big rig, and the campground roads are narro... more

“Gorgeous sunsets and well maintained park”

Reviewed Jan 03, 2019

Overall Rating

This was one of several stays at this park. We keep coming back! In love with the sunset views and well maintained park atmosphere. If you need groceries, there’s a small Dollar General store about 5 miles down the road in red rock. Don’t forget to take a hike and check out Rooster Cogburns Ostrich Farm. Pull through and back in sites.... more

“Wonderful AZ State Park”

Reviewed Nov 06, 2018

Nested at the base of a magnificent peak and within a nice huge saguaro cactus “forest”. Pricey for electric only, but the park is immaculate, with paved roads and large paved sites that offer space for both a trailer and car side by side or in tandem. Site was perfect level and all sites were spread out to give everyone great views. I... more

I just wanted to say we just got back from Picacho Peak State Park and had to leave this very positive note. We had a WONDERFUL time. They do take big rigs as ours is 40' and we saw others bigger with tow vehicles as well. The staff was excellent, professional and friendly. They were very helpful too.

Overall Rating

We had to pull through site that has electric only but has 50 amp and also 30. The view is absolutely incredible spaces are level they have potable water at the dump station and also garbage. The only downfall is he can hear the interstate but it's not intrusive so that's why only a four star.
