Mecca Beach is 2 miles further on 111 than the Headquarters campground. Super place for birds. Sadly, this whole park is due to close after the 2012 season. Budget cuts. The sunsets here are amazing. Solar showers are available.
This is in beautiful Texas Canyon, just off the I-10 going toward Willcox. The Amerind Museum is next door and worth several hours. Horse-back rides were available, but we did not take one. Friendly staff. Dry camping was available, too. Sites were on dirt. Not a fancy place..a bit of the old West.
A lovely park on the bank of the Delta in Rio Vista, CA. Well maintained. I walked along the edge of the water for a ways and enjoyed the sunset. A friendly ranger and host greeted me. It's a bit hard to find. You must wind through the town. I'm going back on my way south this winter. No wind.
I agree with most everything said about this lovely desert park. I love this place! Sitting near my rig a bevy of Gambel's quail came by and then a roadrunner jumped up on my truck's hood and looked into the window! In the winter, there are nature walks led by naturalists. Nearby is the Sonora Desert Museum. Don't accept plastic cards, but checks are OK. A 14 day limit.
This is a great little spot in Madera Canyon near Green Valley, AZ. The toilets are vault. There are picnic tables and bear proof storage lockers. I've stayed here over the last 3 years and never saw a bear. The hiking is good. The best is the birding in the canyon. Many migrate here in winter and spring. The humming birds are prolific. Using a Golden Age Pass the cost is $5. Two week limit.
The feature of this park is the hot mineral tubs. It is a rustic setting. Soaking is included in the price. Many birds to enjoy. There are nearby restaurants. I have stayed many times to relax and soak away sore muscles. Rooms are also available.
The 3 private hot pools are the attraction for soaking, not swimming, it's too shallow. This park has new owners. It is located 5 miles north of Beatty on Hwy. 95. Friendly manager. Some highway noise. Lots of birds.
The only reason to stay here is the large swimming pool, spa and sauna. The camp ground is nearly all long term residents and most sites are junky. There are only a few sites available for brief stays. The spa and pool are open to the public.
