“Small but striking views”

We stayed at Picacho Peak State Park in the middle of a rainy few days so we didn't get to hike in the park which was one of the main reasons we camped there. In spite of this, we enjoyed the striking views of the peak well-kept sites and convenient location between Phoenix and Tucson and recommend it. Value: Good. Like other AZ st... more

While this was a very clean campground with clean bathrooms and great showers we would only stay here again if we needed a night to shower and dump the RV. We could hear and see, not only non-stop traffic from I-10, but the train as well. This was all day and all night. It is hard to justify $30 a night with only electric provided a... more

“AWSOME HIKING”

Reviewed Mar 16, 2018

Overall Rating

The hike to the top of Picacho Peak is EPIC!!! The campground is nice, well maintained and the campsites are spread out. The only reason it gets 4 stars is that there is no water or sewer at the individual campsites, only electricity. And, the bees at the dump/water station are something that you need to be careful of. We will be back ... more

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

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

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

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
