Brand new with every amenity

This is a must stop in Tucson. The RV park is next to the casino. The park is gated, and it has all the amenities needed for a complete stay plus gambling.

The cost is $50 a night for either a back-end or a pull thru spot. There is 24/7 security, and impeccably clean laundry room with folding…

Rather disorganized

Sites are not well defined but once you know where to park the sites are quite large. No real shade is available as the trees are desert spindly. There has been no one in the office and we were told to just park anywhere.

Quaint and convenient!

Very easy to find, just outside the Saguaro National Park (West District). The sites and loops were very well maintained and had some beautiful views. Bathrooms were well kept and dumpsters were convenient to find. All sites had picnic tables and seating, some of them had canopies that were nice to…

Definitely a winner!

Quiet, clean, a winner! I've stayed at this campground three times now. It's always such a pleasure to stay here. The bathrooms are clean, the people are nice, and the sites are well-spaced. Even managed to get a 23 mile bike ride through the desert today. Great place to stay when exploring Saguaro…

I wanted a close by camp site for my first trip out in the new travel trailer. Gilbert ray was perfect. I chose a nice spot with a bit of extra distance from the next camper so I wouldn't stress about folks watching me back in. The site was a lovely patch of desert with electric and a picnic table.…

Close to freeway RV Park

This 55 and up RV park is just off the freeway and boasts 70 RV sites, as well as permanent mobile home sites. Just outside of Tucson, you are close to great food, hiking, mild winter weather, and the beauty of the desert. R&R pizza is nearby and a local favorite. Good Sam’s RV park

Saguaros galore!

Wow what an incredible desert experience! The closest you can get to camping inside saguaro National park. Come here for hiking and stargazing. Stay for the cool evenings, wildlife, and true desert beauty. The desert museum is minutes away and the best way to learn about the surrounding area. Plan…

Pretty but noisy

Well I was kind of nervous since the last review talked about human trafficking. Which led me to only staying one night, there was a lot of trash when I went. A lot of loud trucks in and out also and the signal for my ATT was one bar if that. Also if you have dogs watch them very carefully with the…

Campground living

This is a good campground and you know you are in a campground. Not much hides you from anything else. But it has wide views in all directions. Nice running/hiking path connects to the campground. Easy access to Saguaro NP.

At the edge of Saguaro.

You can't get closer! This campground was located in a great spot... Scenery all around and trails to Tucson Mountain Park. Minutes from Saguaro West. The staff was very nice. Site was clean and spacious with vegetation and space between the other sites. Nothing like a Tucson sunset every night.

Great RV park for exploring Tucson area

So many amenities, awesome staff, clean, everything worked as advertised. Wifi was a little spotty from our site, just a few tv channels with antenna (no cable). Laundry, showers, TV lounge, food trucks, entertainment, etc.

Pipeline Rd, Marana, AZ

Wide open BLM dispersed camping area near Saguaro National Monument outside Marana, AZ.

The road to the site is paved until you leave Avra Valley Rd on Pipeline, which is a very good dirt road. Our site was as far from the pavement as you can get and we had no problems getting in with our 41’…

I stayed at these sites for 2 nights. Easy to get to with lots of Saguaro cactus to enjoy! Felt safe but I did run into several folks who warned of nearby human trafficking rings. As a solo traveler this made me feel pretty uneasy, so I left the following day. If you are traveling with others I…

No sign from road to know you're there

Free. Not crowded, and pretty quiet. Road is washed out in a couple of places so take it slow. Google maps was right on for the turn off.

Small area, with a lot of people. Close to busy road, so was very noisy.
