Great Campground

We stayed the last weekend in February. The place was fully booked. Spots were a bit tight. We have a 30ft TT. Electric hook ups only but plenty of dumping stations and water sites. Bathrooms but no showers (we didn’t use them). While the spots were kind of close together the views and vegetation made it feel more intimate.

Lots of great hiking and biking trails from the campground, minutes from the Sonora Desert Museum and Saguaro National Forest. Great spot for a getaway

Very large dispersed parking area

This location is open to all Elks USA Members. It has a very large dry camping area and RV storage area. There is plenty of room even for group camping. We had ten RV’s and trailers in our group and didn’t put a dent in the available parking area. The fee is a$5.00 donation per night. The lodge itself is also a very nice size and friendly people. We were there on Friday night for dinner and the special was really good and also have a menu of appetizers and entrees to choose from. They are also open on Saturday for lunch. Not sure what the weekly hours are.

We will be back!

Only stayed here one night but we thought it was pretty nice. A little close to a busy road so for our pop up it was a bit noisy. Might try to get a campsite on the other side of the grounds next time. Nice heated pools and hot tub, Clean bathrooms/ shower rooms. Has a game room, pickle ball courts, Older playground, and a new dog run being built ( under construction). Sounds like there are plans to build a splash pad in the future. Free donuts on Saturday mornings too! Close to a gas station and Frys Food so you don’t need to go far if you need anything.

Excellent option

We loved this site. The road was fine for our 17’ trailer and spots are spread out well. A few other campers and some shooting in the distance but overall an excellent and free option. Lots of beautiful cactus and excellent stargazing.

None better

Great value with weekly rate. Beautiful pool, hot tub, library, pickle ball and so many activities. Spacious sites, FHU, so well maintained!!!

Really great campground

This campground is really nice and very well maintained. Upon entry into the campground, signs were up saying the place was full. Was so glad I made reservations online through their website. Check-in was very easy and all campground staff seem very friendly. There are several camp hosts, it looks like one per loop.

The sites are all gravel and most seem fairly level. Most seem to be back in and some can be a bit tricky for the less experienced. There are some pull through sites, but not very many.

The scenery is really nice, but there are also many scenic pull over sites along the ride in, but best to go after you unhook your rig as they don't to be large enough to accommodate trailers or large rigs.

There are very nice clean bathrooms with running water and a sink behind them for washing dishes. I only saw grills in some tent only sites, so bring your own if you want to grill some food.

The sites seem to be separated by a lot of vegetation, but voices do carry, Lots of family and dogs walking. Everybody seemed very friendly. Although Covid is still a real threat, he only people I saw wearing masks were the employees, so social distance is very important.

All sites have 30 amp hookups, but water and dump stations are available. There are also water spigots throughout the camp. They also request you separate your trash for recycle and recycle bins are available. 

I do prefer BLM camping for the privacy, but there are none I could find in this area. This place was a really nice place to stay, and they do have a 7 say strictly enforced limit. Peak season is January 1st through March 31st.


One of the best cleanest camp sites we’ve been to. Great relaxing for the week! Bring lights for the hood of your car or a light string to put around where you park so the pack rats don’t eat the warm cables in your engine!

Possibly my favorite ever

We’ve camped a lot and been to tons of state and national parks us RV parks. This one is probably my favorite of anywhere we have been. The sites for the most part are private and large and level. Lots of access to water. Bathrooms are clean (if you’re using them during Covid) and a dishwashing station. Most folks are masked which I appreciate too. Very quiet and very clean. Front office staff is helpful and efficient. There is also a little lending library and a bird game spot. Easy access to the NP. Would definitely stay again.

Family Favorite

This is a great campground. It’s perfectly suited as a site that takes little time to get too, and yields tons of star gazing, hiking and camping fun. You can use a primitive site and get a feel for boon-docking, or take advantage of the super clean showers and bathrooms near the more established camping site. We fully recommend this camping location.

No thrills, great value

This is a great campground for RV hookup. If you’re looking for a great value this is the place. Anne takes a little to get used to, but has a huge heart and takes care of her tenants. I fully recommend this this site.
