Quiet and well laid out

Nice county campground with hiking and biking. No water hookups and no showers but outdoor dishwashing station available. Some sites are fairly small and not level. Only a few would take big rigs. Great desert views.

Great showers, views, hiking

Showers and bathrooms in general are fantastic! All electric sites. Fill up your water tank b4 u get here. Great, challenging hike in the park. Decent room between sites but open. A little bit of noise from the Interstate but not bad.

Wrong gps coordinates

This site is actually about an hour further up toward Mt Lemmon. Search “Whitetail campground” to find it. All the roads in this area are gated off

Happy Accident!

I booked Gilbert Ray based on campground location. We wanted to be close enough to Tucson for day trips yet far enough out to enjoy some peace and quiet. We were pleasantly surprised by the beauty of the place. Sunrises and sunsets are something to behold!

Quiet and close to Tucson

Took a Cruise America rv to the park as a first time RVr. Had electric hook up which was much needed as frigid out. Site was clean and spaced well away from others.

Clean toilets and showers available with blazing hot water, and firewood for $7 a bundle from park office. Trash could be dumped on…

Great, but tight

Gorgeous desert, close to Saguaro National part West side, flush toilets and helpful camp hosts. The spots on A loop at least were super snug. Some larger ones against open desert that we will shoot for next trip. Great jumping off spot for the national park.

Camping near Tuscon

Pima County campground. Positives are that it is convenient to Tuscon. Nice mountain biking and hiking trails right from the campground. East access to Suguaro National Park. Negatives are that it seems pricey for what you get. We stayed in H loop which is first come first serve and had to pay…

Great camping, great hike

We stayed for one night in December. A bit cold but great. Limited shade for when it gets warm in the spring/summer. Beautiful sunrise view of the peak. Staff was great.

Love this place!!!

This was the second time my husband and I have stayed here. We first tent camped here in September 2020, it wasn’t busy and there were maybe 3 other people in the whole camp. When we were traveling this past time though Arizona we stopped again because we loved it so much last time. This trip we…

Love this desert campground. It’s our Christmas camping stop every year. We are huge desert fans and this campground is cactus central!

Too close to Hwy

Nice park with beautiful hiking trails, but as far as Campground concerned, it is similar to a rest area by interstate highway 10; too much noise from street plus a train passes all night

Spacious campsites with great view of trains and picacho peak

Sites were private and views are great. There was a water shortage so you had to show up with whatever water you need during your stay. Showers were hot and spacious. Was available to book same day.
