We stayed at this resort, located south of Tucson and near Tubac, during the hot "off-season." Different rates applied at that time so check the park's Web site for current rates. This resort has historical significance for the local area and dog racing fans as it is housed in the former Amado greyhound race park founded in 1963. The main building has been nicely converted into a huge ballroom, recreation facility and banquet hall. The recreation area is extensive and includes a built-in pool, hot tub, shuffle board, ping pong, pool table, air hockey and two big-screen TV lounge areas. The owners schedule a lot of activities that both short and long-term guests can enjoy during their stay. The sites face prominent views of the majestic Santa Rita Mountain Range. The pull throughs are large, and include a cement slab and picnic table. We were able to pull in with our 32' foot rig and Jeep toad without unhooking, with room to spare fore and aft. There are many recreational activities and historical significance in this area. Some of these include Madera Canyon Wilderness, Tumacacori National Historical Park, and the artist village of Tubac. If you drive back up to Tucson, Old Tucson Studios is a must-see as there were over 300 Western movies made there, with John Wayne putting it on the map. The owners and the camp hosts were super-friendly. They checked in with us a few times to make sure we had everything we needed and to offer their help anytime. Although the new area is nicely graveled and has large sites, it is lacking in landscaping, which gave the feeling of being in a large parking lot. This is why we rated this park a 9 instead of a 10. Ultimately, don't let this deter you because the mountain views really are gorgeous. It is also quiet at night, providing for a good night’s rest after your busy day enjoying beautiful southern Arizona.

This park is in a great location, near Flagstaff and other towns in the vicinity. Their Web site conveniently lists recreation areas and attractions, and the mileage to get there. We went to Meteor Crater, which was about a 45 minute drive. Phase III of the park has HUGE sites for a larger rig. We easily fit out 32' foot motorhome and our Jeep side-by-side with room to spare. Expect traffic noise from I-17 though. The park is mostly made up of small retirement homes, which are nestled among shady trees and hugging the Coconino National Forest. The people at the park are super friendly. We plan on staying at this park again so we can see the many places we have yet to visit in this beautiful part of Arizona.

This was our first stay at this RV resort and it will not be our last! Beautifully maintained and quiet park encompassed by woods and shade trees. Close to all things Sedona, with the famous shops of Tlaquepaque within walking distance. Can accommodate large RVs with all of the hook-up amenities at each site. Clean and recently updated restrooms by our site (#27). They do not allow campfires so bring your propane ring if you want to enjoy a fire at your site.
