This is a wonderful place to spend a few nights or a couple of weeks. The sites are nestled among the trees with creeks and mountains all around. Great hiking and just lovely peace and tranquility. There are many pull through sites (we had #13) which are really very convenient, but not your typical pull through. In fact, one needs to pay attention to the trees all around as you pull into and maneuver the rig - a nice inconvenience really because of its setting. Would gladly return here on a return trip, and would stay much longer than the 2 nights that we camped there.
Cannot rave about this one. Overprices at $37. Sites are very close together, no privacy or even the feeling of such. Just another RV "resort" that packs them in like sardines, and one that needs a little TLC at that. Located convenient to the Caverns if that is your goal, but I would not return to this park.
This park has received some rave reviews, which we cannot endorse. Yes, it looks great - nicely paved internal roads and concrete pads, heated pool, game room, etc - but the traffic noise coming from both the interstate and the frontage road is nearly incessant and very annoying. And there's no escaping it. Additionally, although nicely paved and appointed, some of the sites are situated on some very difficult inclines, making it difficult for some big rigs and long 5th wheel combinations to maneuver. This in not a park that I would elect to stay at for longer than a night or two as I passed thru OKC.
We loved this park and its close in location - just a few miles to the Riverwalk or catch a bus right in front of the park. The sites were adequately sized with good shade. Everything was clean and extremely well maintained. Even the gravel around our cement patio was raked before our arrival. Well stocked store. All personnel very friendly and knowledgeable. Comments about the neighborhood being questionable are fair, however we never felt unsafe or noticed anything that concerned us. We picked this park because it proclaims to be the closest to downtown; we were not disappointed. For exercise and enjoyment, we part of every day on the Riverwalk. Highly recommend this park.
This is a scary place. We left after 1 night. We had intended to visit nearby Madison and stay 2 nights, but were afraid to leave the rig unattended. The rate was a Passport rate, but do not waste your time. Very difficult to find and get a large rig into. The so-called pull through sites were not level, spotty gravel and grass mixture, and hookups not properly placed. The full time residents, which were at lease 95% of the population, lived in run down trailers in a run down park. Do not consider this place under any circumstances.
Another one of those exceptional state parks to rave about. The view of the Catalina mountains and the hiking contained herein are worth the price of admission. Extremely quiet and laid back. No shade, but the mesquite trees interspersed throughout the park give an illusion of privacy. The showers are Spic-n-Span clean. There is a brand new marketplace across from the entrance to the park, with restaurants, sporting goods, and a super Walmart. Tucson proper is only 14 miles. Would stay here all winter if plans would permit. Oh, and did I mention the excellent hiking?
I rate this park a 10 despite the lack of full hookups. The beauty and serenity of this place is unparalleled. Had planned to stay just 1 week, but upon arrival we quickly decided to extend it to two. We were lucky to get the extension. Site 58 is the best in the place! But all sites are wonderful, well spaced and very private. The desert scenery is absolutely gorgeous, and we lived in AZ for 10 years! For those of you who insist on packing yourselves in like sardines at all the so-called RV resorts in Mesa and Apache Junction, you do not know what you are missing.
Excellent location close in to Silver City yet located on a dead end street next to a substantial cemetery. Very quiet place. The sites were divided off with either shrubbery or fencing material, which made for some nice privacy, otherwise wide open to the beautiful sky and the rolling hills beyond. Would definitely stay here again.
One of the best state parks we've stayed in. The upper loops offer fantastic views of Cottonwood, Jerome and the mountains beyond. Sites are very large and well-spaced. Many trails to explore and nearby, as well as the winding Verde River. Cottonwood and Jerome are nearby gems, not to mention the red rocks of Sedona. Staff was always available and eager to assist. Would give this a 10 if there were sewer hookups.
Some sites look to be a bit tight, but overall a great park. Very clean and well maintained. Staff was very attentive and always available. Best feature was its location, right on the Metro Rail to Tempe and downtown Phoenix. Easy access to all restaurants and attractions in the area. Would definitely stay here again.
We wanted a central location to visit family. This site certainly qualifies, as it provides easy access to downtown area and the Broadripple neighborhood. This is a no frills, parking lot type camp area and if not for its location, could not command the rate. Security is 24-hour accompanied by all-night lighting and perimeter fencing. We felt very safe and appreciated our proximity to everything the city had to offer.
Easy access off I-55. Great for overnight stop, but could be nicely used for longer stays to explore the area. Not a "resort" atmosphere, but clean and tidy park. Some highway noise could be heard, but not disruptive to sleep or relaxing. Sites were very level and enable us to remain hooked up for easy departure the next day.
Adequate for overnight stay as is just off I-44. Some traffic noise and a train or two. Not much of a problem, especially if you use a white noise machine as we do. Was surprised to find a Camping World store across the highway. Also a Super Wal-Mart located just 8 miles west, closer to Springfield. Rating based on value and convenience.
