Peaceful Place

Best sunsets, people, and peace for a campground

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.

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!

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.

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!

Amazing campground!

Exceeded expectations!! A moderate 4.6 mile hike after 16 miles on a dirt road. The hike up is BEAUTIFUL and not overly steep (but watch for snakes). The campground was great. We were the only ones there and used site 3. It was very secluded and had a nice big bear box and a nice fire ring. I would…

Great Place to Stay

There is a good mix of long term residents and travelers here. Good, clean safe place to stay with our son and two dogs. My son LOVED the swimming pool. Not a fancy resort, but a very kind, homey environment. I would stay here again.

Nice stop over - so nice, we stayed two days

Self check in and lots of nice sites available. Electric only but lots of good water fill up spots and nice dump station. Spent the day at Saguaro NP and AZ-Sanora Desert Museum is a must see.

Great Southwest Feel

The scenery here is perfect for Arizona. Great views of Tucson Mountain and surrounded by all kinds of hiking trails in the Tucson Mountain Park. The sites are gravel and mostly flat. Loop A seems to have the best views.
