This park was a bit hard to find but worth the effort. It is in town just south of Picacho on Valley, so there are sirens and city noises. The paved access road makes a tough southbound turn off of Valley and needs repair. The very wide interior gravel roads were in good condition. We had a deep, back-in, shaded, graveled site on the north side. Hookups were conveniently placed, and we had a small picnic table at our site. Front desk folks were certainly friendly. We will stay here again when we are in Las Cruces.
The folks at the front desk were very friendly and eager to make us feel welcome. Gravel sites are very long and have ample separation. The utility connections were conveniently grouped for our motorhome. Verizon phone signal was five bars. Bring your satellite dish or DVDs, as there was no PHX batwing reception or cable at the park. Wi-fi at the park was spotty and not very reliable, but that is supposed to be fixed soon. Gila Bend is a somewhat isolated desert town. We had a good dinner at Little Italy and breakfast at Sophia's. We will stay here again whenever we go through this area.
Just north of Oro Valley on Oracle, this park is amongst the best in which we have stayed. The CG is quiet, with large, paved, and separated sites, each with a picnic table. Restroom facilities are spotless with good hot water showers. The park has a good dump station and the batwing gets Tucson channels. Verizon phone signal was two or three bars. The Oro Valley public library is close by for internet access. Rancher's Supply is just north in Catalina for a propane fill. We would stay here again for sure!
This is an old KOA and it shows. The entrance/exit off of the street to this park was tough to negotiate, and over very rough pavement. Our site was very tight, with obstacles (trees and service pedestals) making access difficult. The nose-to-tail site had just enough side room for our slides, barely enough length for our tow car, and the sewer connection was too far to the rear. Rainwater drained poorly and pooled throughout the campground. The CG is close to I-44, and truck and traffic noise was a nuisance throughout the night. The laundry and shower rooms were clean. We camped in a motorhome and would look elsewhere if we were to stay in the Tulsa area again.
