Excellent location just on the edge of Tucson. Sites are spread out with great views of the mountains at most. Loop A seems to have the better views/spread out sites, but only half of loop A has hook-ups. Loved the hikes we took right from the campsite. The Romero Pools hike is wonderful, but not easy (but we saw several seniors on the hike, so!) Very friendly people camped here, mostly families so it was quiet at night. I'm interested in returning in early spring to see the flowers, it was pretty dry in November (but weather was lovely). Have fun!

The RV park owners were very helpful with directions to our next city, and the price for a private park was very reasonable. The sites themselves were not much better than a glorified parking lot, but the park redeems itself with a very nice picnic area with trees, tables, and a covered deck right on the Animas river. We cooked and ate our dinner with the rushing water as a nice backdrop. I would use it for an overnight stopover, or to visit the Indian ruins in the area. It isn't worth more than a couple of nights here.

Best parts of this campground: Large level sites with decent privacy, shade, and mountain views. Worst points: highway noise, and no view of Colorado river from any of the campsites. We would, however, stay here again. We camped here with one other family and stayed across a large groomed yard from each other, making it feel like we had private space to ourselves. Be aware that the full hook-up sights in general have less shade (or none). The electric only sights were better established with trees, grass, etc. The main bathroom and showers were much cleaner than most campgrounds I have stayed in. We thought at first the highway noise would be bad, but it became background "white" noise after only a few minutes. The kids caught 12 fish during their one evening of fishing from the ponds at the campground.

We camped here for 3 nights with two other families. The campsites have great views, and we saw mule deer two of the three evenings here. No problem with privacy (try for an outer loop site if you are concerned). The picnic tables are covered and have 2 of 4 sides covered to protect from the sun. There is an fun short hike from the campground to the cliff edge for a beautiful sunset view, and you can walk or bike to Dead Horse Point from the campground. This is a MUCH better choice for camping than any of the RV parks in Moab. Conserve your water, there is only one place to get drinking water in the campground.
