Yes, A Gem
A great park. Nice level sites with a view across the valley full of saguaros. About a mile from fwy and train, NO noise. Very clean restrooms with showers. The water situation is being corrected soon with a new well.
I can't speak of the hiking, we got in too late but the video at the small visitors center showed a steep ascent with a chain hand rail.
We will return.

Too Expensive For Wha You Get
$30 gets you showers electric and dump basically, water is high in nitrates so unfit for children under six or Small animals, WiFi isn’t free and there is a lot of highway noise.
Besides that the park is beautiful, and extremely well maintained. Personally I find it too expensive, i could see paying 10-15 at most.

Open Year Round
We nearly missed this little gem of a park because the heading said September to May, we came through in July. The campground is set up behind a small mountain that sits between the camp and the Interstate, we heard no traffic noise. It was clean and peaceful, we look forward to coming back.

Great 5 Days.
Great place and very well maintained. We enjoyed the Sunset Hike so much we did it twice. Did not go all the way to the cables because I’m a chicken!! Do yourself a favor and walk out the gravel road at the end of the camping area to the huge rock where you will find ancient mortar holes and shallow caves.
Clean and well maintained bathrooms. We did not have water access to our trailer on our site but some do.
We will return to this campground some day.

Probably nice but gate closes at 10pm if you arrive late with no way to get in to see if you can find a spot. Call earlier in the day to get a spot and the code for the gate. We called at 9pm but wasn’t able to get ahold of anyone.

First Time RVers
We stayed at this campground for 3 nights in February. It is a very well cared for campground! The facilities are clean and the parking spots well groomed. We never got in any hiking because the weather the whole time was raining and the wind was blowing so hard it shook the trailer. It's a bad omen when the highway signs say caution, blowing dust area. The surrounding area is pancake flat and I'll bet the wind is a problem here. The mountain is beautiful with lots of saguaros. The campground was packed but quiet and did not provide much privacy. There was power hookups but no sewer at our sight but the dump station was close by if we needed it. The power went out during the storm so we got to experience dry-camping (nothing but what you brought with you). The highway is nearby and you can hear the sound of traffic (when the wind wasn't blowing 40mph!). All in all, really nice campground but our weather was horrible so we saw the inside of our rental RV for 3 days!

Stayed for 2 nights with my family in our 28ft TT. Sites were clean and roomy. The bathrooms were also well cared for. Campground was well cared for and of course how could you not being up against a mountain. (Picacho Peak)
Hiking was great, lots of great scenery with all the saguaros around. Already planning a return to explore more of the mountain.

Nice clean site, with clean restrooms and amenities. Only stayed overnight, but wish I could have spend a few days there.

I have been coming here for over a decade & staying 14 days. This is the cleanest ship shape campground in this area for travelers. It is the only one in the area also that has a fire ring in each site. Showers are very clean and there are hiking trails also. Staff are super friendly and readily available. Cabanas a in some sites... hook ups.. picnic tables in each one. Wifi..dumpstation.. and firewood for purchase.
