This is one of our favorite campgrounds in Arizona. After a seven year absence we found the campground just as we remembered it. Unfortunately the management has been turned over to a private company, instead of being staffed by USFS hosts. The host was rude and loud. He drives a beat up golf cart, that needs a new muffler, the wrong way on the campground road and for no reason on the sidewalks. I wish the USFS would staff their own campgrounds instead of using these private companies.
Very pretty setting with great views of the Tucson Mountains and Avra Valley. Good proximity to the Desert Museum, Saguaro National Park and Old Tucson. Good privacy between sites because of the native desert vegetation. Got a little aggravated with the lady working the office. They want to assign a site, even though a bunch of them were available. She relented and let me pick a site then come back and register, but let me know she was doing me a favor. The access roads coming into the Tucson Mountain Park, in which the campground is located, are narrow and rough. Take it slow and it's no problem.
One of our favorite state park campgrounds in the nation. Great views. Very well maintained. Most of the sites have good privacy. The only drawback is distant traffic noise from I-10 and the railroad tracks. Not a major problem, however. The electric has been activated for all three loops now.
Much of the campground is used by long term campers and their associated stuff. Even so there are quite a number of sites available for overnight use. The newer part of the campground has wide long concrete sites. Convenient to the Natchez Trace Parkway.
The term "resort" is used a bit loosely. Mostly frequented by long term workers in the area. Had a problem with loud noise next to our site. The manager responded but pulled right up to our campsite and then went to the problem site. So there was no doubt who complained. Not a good technique. We stayed here one night a few years ago. The rates have since gone up and the upkeep has gone down.
Excellent public campground. Gate is locked at 6 PM. Keeps the "sightseers" out. Very quiet at night. The sites located on the lake are somewhat narrow. The other sites have more room. The access road is paved, but a bit rough. Nice walking path around the lake.
This is a Corps of Engineers campground located below Sardis Dam. Access road and spurs are all paved. Some sites are waterfront on a small lake below the main dam. Supposedly a 14 day camp area, but a few of the sites look they have been occupied longer than that. A very nice campground, with lots of large trees for shade.
The campground is over rated and too expensive. The WiFi was very slow, even though we were very close to the router. They put us next to a row of park models, so we had kids going right through our campsite and playing basketball in front of our motorhome. Lots of traffic noise from Interstate 8. Will not stay here again.
