“Great views!”

Reviewed Mar 12, 2018

Overall Rating

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

“All the good things said about this place are true!”

Reviewed Mar 03, 2018

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

“A hidden treasure. ”

One of the better campgrounds I've ever stayed at, although part of that may be due to low expectations. Over a hundred nicely paved and spaced pads. Nice restrooms and solar showers. Great hikes nearby. I was here in the winter and the weather was perfect -- I'd imagine the summer is a different story. Campground hosts were wonde... more

“NPS Campground Perfection”

Reviewed Apr 04, 2017

This is a huge campground that is so full of lush vegetation between sites you would hardly notice the scale of the place during your stay. The spots are all pull thru style with different rows corresponding to different lengths. We were concerned about getting a spot since it is all first come first served but the ranger on duty say... more

“A great place to stay while visiting the park”

This is a pretty huge campground but it was nearly full the weekend we visited in February 2017. We called in the morning to ask if there would be space for us. It looks and feels new and clean, from the long concrete parking pads to the dump/fill station. Sites have lots of trees, cactus, and shrubs but it is the desert so there isn't... more

Spectacular camping in the heart of the beautiful Sonoran Desert. Campground is large and sort of awkwardly set up, but it's easy to get the hang of. All sites are pull through and are marked by the length of RV it can hold. There are three sections: generator, non-generator, and tent. All the loops are close together so you can ... more
