Description

$10 to camp. Tents and trailers. Rough roads to access some of the sites, 4WD or high clearance needed. Extremely beautiful and quiet. Pit toilets at each end of the park, a small hike from some sites. I think there was potable water at each end too. Not near all sites.

Latest Check-Ins

This spot was $10 a night. The people at the store do not tell you that the road is quite steep and also full of pot holes, you definitely need high clearance to be able to drive here. You don’t need 4wd, but it is really bumpy so you should be aware. The toilets are a far walk from the spots. The spots are great, they have grills, picnic tables, and fire pits. Some are big enough to fit multiple people and the views are gorgeous! You can also hike part of the Arizona trail from here and we saw a lot of walk in hikers!

Report Check-In

$20 for cave tour (for us not worth it) and $15 for overnight camping. Don’t drive up to parking at the store with a rig longer than 35 feet as the exit turn is really tight. Very quit at night at camping spots. Water tap is only at group camp but is only accessible with a 50’ hose. To go to group camp for water is not recommended for long vehicles (30+).
No facilities, there are garbages.
We saw a coati walk by.

Report Check-In

As described. It is still $7.50 for a non-RV site. I have decided to stay here a while.

Right on the Arizona Trails system. Great Basecamp for mountain biking, road biking, and hiking.

Gate is locked at 3:45pm and opened at 8am.

First 3 places are good for RV's. We drove the rather rough road with our 23ft RV with no problems. Nice and quiet spot. Did also the ladder tour on the cave. WiFi on the parking. Pittoilet also on restarea near campground

Report Check-In

Could not recommend highly enough! Quiet, nestled in mountains with huge Saguaros, a cave to explore and animals to pet by the ranch. Plus loads of wildlife, including a family of Coatis. $12 for dry camping in an RV but there is a place to fill up in the ranch parking lot. Totalyy worth in, especially if you have kids.

we have a 25 ft truck camper so they put us in the overflow camping which is in the parking lot behind the cowboy statue down at the bottom of the hill. there are outhouses, we didn't use them. a nice quiet place to boondock. paid $7.50. stayed 2 nights and enjoyed the hiking trails. we also enjoyed the cave tour.

Report Check-In

Campground of the cave was full on a Saturday night so we were told to park qt the ranch a little down the road, fine place and quiet in a parking lot with others véhicules. Water and restrooms available, no showers.

Report Check-In

We paid $7.50 for one night. Many sites with various degrees of flat parking, shade, tables, fire rings. Some near restrooms, some not. The closer sites are easy for any rig or car. To get further back you need a little clearance and agility. There was only one other camper in the whole place the night we were there. No electric. Weak cell service. A few water spigots. Endless cactus, countless stars.
