The park is in a beautiful desert setting. Sites are far apart, with low vegetation providing a real sense of privacy. The pads are large and paved, and the adjacent ground is regularly cleared and raked. The bathrooms, although unheated, are very clean. The campground connects to several hiking trails that go farther into the desert. The park fills frequently in winter. Reservations advised.
At first glance the park's layout seems odd, but it works fine and there are multiple hookups at each site, very helpful for sewer connection. On most sites, when freezing temps are expected at night, water is turned off in the evening and back on in the morning. It's an older facility with dirt pads and concrete patios. The restrooms were clean but could use newer fixtures and some paint. Wi-fi worked well, and the staff/hosts were very friendly and helpful. This was our second visit, and we will stop there again.
Very convenient location in Santa Rosa with easy access to Sonoma County wine country. Located on open, gravel site with a few trees that might provide some shade in summer. Gravel not much fun for our dog, but several grassy parks nearby. Bathroom was clean but in need of upgrade and fresh paint, especially the showers. Staff/hosts were friendly and helpful. A good value for the price.
It is an adequate overnight stop and convenient to I-5. We arrived after the office closed and self-registered, calculating the Good Sam discount as best we could. The friendly manager charged us a bit less in the morning. Older facilities but the common areas were clean. Long-term residents around the perimeter of the facility, but it seemed quiet and secure. Wi-Fi was not accessible from our site which was well away from the office.
Friendly, helpful staff. Nice location on the Tualatin River with some long-term residents. All sites are very well kept with extremely clean baths and laundry rooms. Relatively easy access in spite of a steep downhill when entering the park. We'd definitely stay here again.
Lovely setting just north of Tucson with numerous hiking and horse trails in a desert setting. Great area for birdwatchers. Excellent facilities, although the bathrooms are unheated and can be chilly during the winter. Be aware that nighttime temperatures can be in the 20s in January, 10 or more degrees colder than Tucson as the mountain area cold settles into the park. Plenty of over-the-air TV for those who enjoy that. Shopping, restaurants are just outside the park.
We love this park. Very popular. It's important to make reservations well ahead of time, although there is overflow (dry) camping near the entrance station. Beautiful desert surroundings with easy access to the Phoenix metro area. Only complaint is that the unheated bathrooms can be chilly during the winter.
We stayed here three nights. Nice place on the east side of the metro Phoenix area with easy access to and from freeways. Staff was friendly and we were escorted to our site. The perimeter is filled with long-term (seasonal) residents. Wi-Fi was fine at our site, and over-the-air TV reception was good with many channels. Pool and hot-tub available though we did not use them. We did use the laundry, which was fine.
We spent a week at this lovely park right on the Colorado River. Although full, it was quiet (pre spring break). Our site had water and electric hookups. 17 sites have sewer too (call park for site numbers). Grassy areas for walking the dog. Great desert hiking. Friendly rangers, volunteers and fellow campers. We look forward to going back next year.
We spent 9 nights here and thoroughly enjoyed our visit. I imagine that in the summer it's a totally different experience with day-use boaters, but it was quiet and relaxing in February. Beautiful views. Shopping in Peoria is about 20 minutes away.
Sites were adequate for an overnight. As previously mentioned, sewer connection is uphill from pad. I was able to work around by manipulating the hose, but the drain at my site was clogged and overflowed. Check before using.
