San Rafael Valley Rd

I was looking for camping on Harshaw Rd and mistakenly took the primitive rd San Rafael Valley Rd and found some great large campsites and group sites along this road. We were able to tow our 36’ fifth wheel up here with no problem as this road seems to be regularly maintained. A couple times while…

Beautiful Birding Park!

Right next to the Mexican border. Gorgeous park with sites on the water. Park is clean, with exceptional restrooms. Boat rides are offered on the weekends. Birding walks on Friday and Monday mornings. We will definitely come again!

Friendly with easy campsites and new showers

Most sites have a lake view. Seems like Arizona takes good care of her parks. Lots to do in the area.

Patagonia lake

Campsites are a little close together. Not much shade so you have to be real familiar with the campsite to pick the perfect spot with shade trees and lake views. At the time we went the sewage dumping station was closed. They do now have a small market across from the beach for certain supplies.…

Nice and convenient to town

First time taking our 30’ travel trailer out. Selected Patagonia because it’s close to home base and there was dispersed camping available. Traveled on a weekday and arrived early. Found a site tucked back enough from the road so road noise wasn’t a issue. After we unhooked we explored further down…

Fun but dirty and noisy

Great Lake if you can hop on a kayak and get away from the day beach area. Weekends during the summer are crazy. It’s the only real lake in the whole area so it is what it is. We go 3/4 times a year. Bird watching is amazing. Also can hike the trail and see some cows. Water and electric on sites…

Beautiful lake and trails, a bird watchers heaven.

We camped in our Tellaro in space 18. It's a nice wide spot where we could easily fit a 2nd vehicle or a 5th wheel and truck. Due to Covid the bathrooms, water hookups and dump station were closed but they all looked like nice facilities. The camp spaces are nicely spaced out except for 2. #'s 35…

Expensive site needs to be cleaned more often

When we arrived I wish the park rangers would have been more Informative on where to park, boat ramps, FIREWOOD, things to help out people who have never been. We had a great campsite that we boated to and camped which we loved. Company wasn’t as friendly as expected people would come in and fish…

Least favorite state park

This has been our least favorite campsite in the Arizona State Park system so far in our travels. We shortened our trip and headed home early because it just wasn’t for us. I’ve listed pros and cons below, but to give you an idea of our camping style, we are a family with young children and a dog.…

Camping alternate to Hershaw

After seeing the dispersed camping, my partner and I knew there must be something better and more secluded. About a 1/4 mile before the dispersed camping there is a national forest access road on the right. You’ll see a forest fire prevention sign at the entrance. 4x4 only no trailers. 3 or 4…

Quiet Campground Even When Full

We visited for our first time for 3 nights and campground was full. Even so, we were surprised how quiet it was. Lots of day use spots if you want to picnic by the lake under trees. Camp sites are sparse (table & fire pit) but we didn't feel as tightly packed as those areas down by the beach.…

Nice state park right on a lake

There’s a store there with basics. We had a reasonable back-in site with electricity and water. Only stayed on night but would definitely consider returning.

Beware Wrong Number

The number to reserve takes you to an RV park in Patagonia Village. This is not the same as Patagonia Lake State Park.
