This campground has very large dirt/gravel campsites, quite a distance from each other that would accommodate any type of rig. The 60 campsites is approximate as I didn't count them. Each site has a cement picnic table and that's it. There is one toilet facility. There is no potable water or dump station. The actual Petroglyph site might be interesting if you have never seen one, but if you are near Gila Bend and looking for a quiet site for a night or two this might work for you. It is 12 miles West of Gila Bend and 10 miles North of I-8 on Painted Rock Damn Rd. The $4 rate reflects a senior pass discount, normally it's $8 per night. This is also a BLM long term camping area so you could stay for 6 months if you were set up for it. We saw only 1 or 2 that might have been doing that and only 15-20 total in February. We have been here several times when in the area and ready to stop for a night or two.
Kartchner Caverns is a must see destination. This is the second time we have stayed here, and the cave tours are nothing short of breathtaking! Having said that, we would highly recommend the campground on it's own right. The spots are large. You are quite a ways your neighbors and it's very pretty. It has plenty of small trees and great views. I would have given it a 10 but for the the lack of sewer at the sight. There is a two week stay limit, but if you were planning to do that, you would probably have to pack up and go to the dump station several times. If you are planning to stay at any of the AZ state parks in the winter, I would make reservations and if you do it on line you can pick your spot on a map that shows a picture of the site.
This is a small older park far enough from the freeway to not have a noise issue, but near enough for easy access. The managers are two of the nicest people I have ever met and the park is clean,well maintained, quiet, and the other people were friendly. The row on the East side of the park is mostly full timers. We were here during the Gem Show and rodeo and they had people crammed in everywhere in electric only spots so it was more crowded than usual but our spot was plenty big enough for our 36' RV with 3 slides and tow car side by side. We were in a spot in the middle of the park so we were more affected by the crowding. Had we moved to one of the angled spots on the West side of the park we would hardly have been aware of it. As others have mentioned, the WiFi is sometimes very slow, but we had no problems logging on. You just had to be patient, occasionally. There is currently freeway construction so access from the South is a little more trouble than normal but no big thing. We would definitely stay here again.
Great Campground! We would stay here again even if we didn't come to see the caverns, which are a must see. The campground is meticulously maintained, rest rooms are clean, staff and campground hosts were very friendly and helpful. Most sites are quite level, and what we liked best is there is tons of space between the sites so you are not looking right into your neighbors' windows. Wish they had sewer but there is a dump station in the campground. Many of the sites have terrific views of the surrounding hills and valleys. Verizon phone and data worked fine here.
Excellent very clean and tidy smaller campground. Each space has a cement pad and a little landscaping with plenty of room for rigs with slides on both sides and a tow car. There is also a pretty little cactus garden with a picnic table. Staff was extremely friendly and helpful and pointed us in the direction of several sights we would have missed otherwise. Strong Verizon and WiFi signal. While not technically "pull through" sites, some of the sites on the right side you can go through the lot next door and pull straight in.
