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.

Patagonia

Stayed one night in a group site on the left large enough for six campers. There were three others when I stayed and one had a generator running non stop all day and night. This site,and the few other sites I saw, are right next to Harshaw Rd. which is pretty busy with fast moving traffic all day. Fire rings. No water. No hiking trails.

Patagonia has Old West character and Red Mountain Food is a good place to buy groceries. There’s a nice hiking trail out of Patagonia off Blue Haven Rd.

Nice escape, nice drive

We have camped here for probably close to 20 years. Always at a boat in site because there is very little privacy in the main tent camping area. At a Boat site you, the kids and the dog can all be loud. It’s a small lake but worth the drive to escape the heat to fish, float, boat, hike or hang out at the camp. Has a small marina with rentals. Hot as hell in the summer but the water is there. Watch out for ants, they are everywhere.

Close to water

The proximity to the lake is great!! The campsites themselves are small.

A pleasant stay.

We stayed here for a week. $150 for a week, or $30 a night. 24 hour security is provided. Staff was very friendly and they are very strict on campground policies. The only little hassle was they have a lot of weekend shows going on and they change the line of travel for getting in and out of the facility. Other than that it was a very good stay and we would stay here again.

Lots of choices for dispersed

Great place, if you don't mind occasional helicopters and A10 Warthogs in the distance. Lots of places to choose from for RV and tent camping. The road is a little rough but definitely done in a passenger car. Nights are beautiful.

Love it!

Obviously, you have to be military, but the views are beautiful. The lady that runs it is very friendly and helpful. The spaces are large concrete slabs with shade trees. I would absolutely come back!

Wonderful Getaway Close to Tucson

Very hard to get a reservation as this lake is very popular. Lake is smaller than you think, and most of it is a no-wake zone. They do rent boats st the small marina/store. Many sites are shaded and have a picnic table; some sites are built-in. Nice trails around. It is also on a major flyway so birding is good.

A little overpriced

Most tent and RV sites have electric, which is wonderful, and some of the sites are really close to the water. There are semi-clean bathrooms, but the shop is wonderful. And the water is a great way to cool off.  You can rent boats. Take your dogs out to other parts of the water, NOT the beach. There are stores right there so you don't have to go into town.

Patagonia lake state park, tent camping with kids

Patagonia Lake State Park Has a great camping site spots with power and water in great views for really reasonably priced. They have a little sand beach that the kids can play on with showers to rinse off before you head back to your little camp. Campsites are a couple minutes away from the mini sand beach. There is fishing. The little Marina also rents kayaks and paddle boats and houseboats. A wonderful gram campground highly recommended for those who have children and pets. Dogs are required to be leashed at all times.
