***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. Our site (C10) had electric, no water, no shade... more

“Very nice park with some wonderful hikes”

Reviewed Feb 14, 2017

Overall Rating

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

“Beautiful Desert Scenery”

We stopped here for one night on our way to California. The scenery was really nice. There are giant saguaro cactus throughout the park. Our site was level and had 50amp service. No sewer or water hookups, but there iis a dump station and potable water at entrance to the RV section of the park. The bathrooms were very clean. The p... more

“Great scenery and perfect stop on the way to/from Tucson”

Reviewed Mar 30, 2016

Overall Rating

Anyone who has driven from Phoenix to Tucson will recognize the namesake peak of this park. Despite its proximity to the I-10 freeway (visible off in the distance), we found it to be quite peaceful and never found the road noise to be problematic (from the C loop on the end closer to the highway). Reservable sites range from large to h... more

This is a very nice state park with unusually large sites (both in terms of room for your rig as well as for setting up seating areas shade tents and the like.) Since the sites are huge you are pretty much guaranteed to have a good view from your RV. The "great" views will be had by those lucky enough to be on the outside of each loo... more

This state park is not necessarily a destination, but rather a place to camp on the way somewhere. It is located between Casa Grande and Tucson along Interstate 10. But not too close to the Interstate. Noise is not a factor. Although the train track is on the other side of the Interstate, it also is not a noise factor because the campg... more

...and I'm assuming they were on a last chance power drive. I never realized how many cars actually occupy a freeway, but I-10 running just north of the park was very visible, and though the noise was barely a background hum, the sheer number of headlights cutting through the night--and all night--was a little staggering.

We really enjoyed camping at this state park with great views and hikes of Picacho Peak. The paved campsites are large and semi-private with plenty of space between neighbors. We stayed in non-electric site and had many opportunities to use solar. The dump station is convenient for entering and exiting campground. Restrooms and sho... more
