I'm glad we went out of our way to stay here. The sites are of varying lengths. It's a very beautiful and unique location. Running off solar in the non-generator area, we had the misfortune of hitting the 3 unusually hot days in mid March, but we survived. ;) It doesn't help that you can't safely keep an awning out with the unpredictab... more

“Beautiful, Remote, Quiet Campground.”

Reviewed Apr 12, 2018

This campground is as good as it gets for Sonoran vegetation. Although there are 200 sites it was never full while we were there. If you do not like the sound of the generators there are 3 rows that are non-generator. The rules on generators are pretty limiting so even the rows with generators can only run them for a few hours in th... more

This is a model park that best models Edward Abbey's vision of national parks humorously/serious comments in Desert Solitaire ... this park is for the people and preservation (as much as possible these days) of the way things were and should remain for the future generations to enjoy and study. Fabulous park and will return... great... more

Easily the most beautiful place I’ve been in many, many months of moons. The organ pipes play silent welcome songs in Spanish to those heading further south into Mexico while the saguaros statuesque perch their guard, the two big cacti breeds forming the cornerstone of an otherwise lush-for-the-desert forest of palo verde and creosote,... more

“Upscale National Park camping”

Reviewed Mar 31, 2018

Overall Rating

Twin Peaks is a large campground situated on a sloping site. As others have mentioned, there are three sections: one for those who want to use generators, one generator free and one for those in tents. We chose the generator free section. We found the layout of the campground a little odd in that all of the sites are pull through, but ... more

We had a nice stay at this campground. The hosts and rangers were friendly, the sites and restrooms were clean and plentiful, and the park was beautiful at sunrise and sunset. The stars at night exploded in the night sky. We'd never seen so many stars. We arrived on a Wednesday around noon, and the campground was about half full. We... more

There's not much to say about this lovely campground that hasn't already been said here. Great views, nice sites, clean facilities, and the extra bonus of having a generator free section (best idea ever) makes this a pretty stellar campground in my book. One thing to note is that the solar showers only offer a small amount of hot water... more

After a difficult time trying to find a place to camp in Tucson, I ended up coming here because of all the positive reviews on Campendium. What a wonderful campground! Very inexpensive, with lovely vistas and the sites are just far enough apart with enough vegetation for privacy. Sites are mostly pull throughs with level concrete pads,... more
