The State of Arizona has done it again with the Kartchner State Park. The Campiste is beautiful in a way only the desert can be and Kartchner Caverns is breathtaking. Recommend making reservations to ensure you get a long enough spot and get a spot in a tour of the caverns.
The only downside to this campground is the road up, I would definitely recommend a higher clearance vehicle. My small car made it, but it was rough and I do not recommend taking a low clearance car, it’s pretty rocky and steep at times! However, the campground itself was absolutely amazing, not a ton of sites but I don’t mind that. There are trails near by, one by the group area that has signs throughout explaining the landscape and the remains of the mining town. Other more interpretive trails lead out to the edge of the mountain, with a killer view and small climbing opportunities.
It is peaceful. Occasionally you will end up with cows surrounding you. Happened to me. This campground is allowed up to 14 days, BUT that is every 6 months. Not the normal 30 days. I’ve stayed there many times in the past 4 years, they keep track.
Beautiful scenery and a lot of awesome places to hike. Rangers and park staff are so friendly and helpful. Our Park host was super nice, but definitely keep things in order. Dogs are welcome you just have to keep them on a leash and pick up after them. The Caverns are the main attraction, please make your reservations early. At different times of the year different parts are open, mostly depends on the bat migrations. Caverns are a must-see! It is close to Tombstone and other attractions.
Tent camping, Cabins, RV Camping, ton's of hiking from various levels of difficulty. Kartchner Cavern's is the main attraction here. Call ahead for availability and tickets. But don't miss all the other amazing hiking trails and nature center. Also check out the other astronomy programs they have from time to time. Tuscon is a "Dark Skies" community that offers amazing views of the night sky.
We pulled in after dark and were gone by morning! We wanted somewhere to see the stars! It looked like a super clean park with paved roads, plenty of RV hookups and bath/shower house. We did tent camp. I wish we could have stayed longer to see the caverns, but this was just a pit stop on our road trip!
Really nice area flat. BLM Numbered campsites, but you can also go to the end of that campground and there's a fence you can go through and there's camping out that way also. Watch out for potholes. Two weeks camping permitted. No services good Verizon
We had a great time here over the weekend. The sites are large and spaced out. Each space has a fire pit and picnic table. There is water available but it’s located next to the pit toilets, not at the individual sites.
You can see the lake from the sites, but we had to walk about 1/2 mile to get to the water. We did catch 3 trouts, so it was worth it.
Over half of the spaces were occupied on a Saturday in February. Several large and loud groups as well.
