The rate is the daily rate. Electric costs us $3 more. The park is beautiful and very well kept. Check-in was painless. They do give you several sheets of paper, including detailed rules and regulations. As with all Escapee parks there is a 4 pm social hour; everyone was quite pleasant. The sites are huge. Some have the owner's storage shed/casita on the site, ours did not. The park is very quiet as it is a ways off of the road. We stayed for one night, but it would be very easy to stay a week or even longer. We camped at Saguaro Co-op Park - Escapee Park in a Motorhome.

While the park appears to be a nice, well kept place, as overnighters we did not have the chance to experience it.

They do not except reservation. You can not call to determine availability. So you have to drive out to the park to find that all they offer is dry camping. Nice people, lousy way of doing business for travelers. Enough to make us re-evaluate the value of our continued membership in the club. We camped at Saguaro Co-op Park - Escapee Park in a Travel Trailer.

This Escapee park is very well kept and managed. The facilities and camping site were very nice and everyone was friendly. The sites are good sized and most have a small building the owner constructed. Our site was graveled as were most we saw and level. They have someone guide you to your site and show you the hookups. The laundry facilities were good with only a couple of machines out of service.

We got the special rate for first visit of only $50.00 per week plus electric, which is hard to beat. We would stay here again if we are back through this area. We camped at Saguaro Co-op Park - Escapee Park in a Travel Trailer.

We visited the Arizona-Sonora Desert Museum and loved it, what a beautiful place. Be aware that most of it is outside so if it's hot you probably wouldn't enjoy it as much.

Rate reflects monthly stay plus electric. Our park of choice when visiting the area, Saguaro SKP Park, with minor exceptions, has everything for an enjoyable, reasonable stay. Travelers are able to rent the sites of absent leaseholders, so lots, which are all large, may vary from landscaping and pad to gravel only. Best suited for self-contained rigs since the only showers are at the office. The clubhouse offers weekly meals, a fully equipped exercise room, library, and large DVD library. Activities are extensive and visitors are welcome to participate. No WiFi except at the clubhouse, but a pay service is in the works. No pool, but it stays cool here in the winter. Verizon cell and data were strong, the cable is fuzzy, but there are no obstructions to a satellite. Convenient to town, Tucson, and Sierra Vista, with friendly residents and a welcoming atmosphere. We camped at Saguaro Co-op Park - Escapee Park in a Motorhome.

This is a very well maintained park with a very friendly & helpful staff. The lots in this park are all leased to individuals. The lots are available for rent when the leaseholders are away from the park. All the lots are very spacious (at least double the size of a normal RV site) & level. Most of the lots have improvements such as casitas, patios, & landscaping. All lots are gravel covered & have full hookups including 30/50 amp service & cable TV. All streets are wide & paved. Most sites are back-in. There are a few pull-thru dry camp sites available. Utilities are conveniently located on the lots. Free wifi is available at the clubhouse. You can purchase wifi access for $3.00 a day or $12.00 a week that worked reasonably well for us. The clubhouse is located in the center of the park. It is a very nice facility that contains a billiard room with 3 tables, an activity room, an exercise room, & the laundry. Everyone is invited to participate in the many scheduled activities. The park also has propane available on Monday & Thursday from 9 am to 10 am. The price was less than the price in Benson. There is also a convenience station with air & water located near the facilities building. First time visitors who are not Escapee members may stay for 1 week only at the Escapee rate of $20.00 a day or $110.00 a week + electric. Our electric averaged just over $2.00 a day. We were only going to stay 1 week, but ended up staying 3 weeks. We will definitely return when in this area again. We camped at Saguaro Co-op Park - Escapee Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Escapee rate plus electric (about $2.00 per night). Very nice Escapee Co-op park. Well maintained, friendly neighbors, and inexpensive nightly rate. Wide roads are big rig friendly. Sites are FHU with 50 amp and cable. Verizon cell/MiFi reception was good. Satellite reception was good. Park is quiet at night. We would stay again.

We actually paid $50 for a week, plus electricity. We loved this park! It will fit most of your needs. Close to town, which seems to have everything you will need. It is a very well kept park and very friendly. The lots are very level. Great area to walk and enjoy the sunrise or sunset. We loved all of the landscaping and the wild life. I imagine that in the winter the park would be very active. We would recommend this park to anyone! The only two negatives would be the Wi-Fi is only available in the club house and I absolutely hate artificial flowers when you can have real so easily!

Very, very nice park. We arrived intending to stay one week and stayed two. Lots of activities that all guests are welcome, even encouraged to attend. Happy hour every afternoon, numerous craft groups, card games, breakfasts, dinners and many other activities really kept us busy. This is the friendliest place we have been to. It is also very dog friendly.

The park has a number of transient spaces, but most of the sites are leased by Co-op members. We were fortunate enough to be assigned one where the lessees were traveling.

The park is surrounded by hundreds of acres of desert with miles of trails to explore. The dogs had a great time here.

Rate quoted is based on the weekly rate without electricity. Our power bill for two weeks was $67. We camped at Saguaro Co-op Park - Escapee Park in a Motorhome.

One of the best parks we've stayed in. Would rate "10" if they had wifi throughout the park. We happened to be near the clubhouse, so were able to pick up wifi. Clean, friendly, well maintained park. Clubhouse w/ weekly breakfasts and dinners-terrific entertainment! Some of the residents have created adorable little "casitas" on their sites and you may receive a park tour upon request. Can't say enough good things about this park and its residents, we look forward to returning! We camped at Saguaro Co-op Park - Escapee Park in a Fifth Wheel.

This park is small, quiet, well maintained, clean, and tucked away nicely. Sites are good sized. People are welcoming and friendly--they actually have a welcome committee. Lots of groups and activities, if you are so inclined. Convenient location to visit Benson, Tombstone, Bisbee, Tucson, Wilcox. Club house with library, pool room, stage, kitchen, small gym, television, puzzles. Laundry room is small, but adequate. We really liked it here. We felt comfortable, safe, and relaxed. Would stay again for longer period. We camped at Saguaro Co-op Park - Escapee Park in a Motorhome.

Of all the SKPs parks we've stayed at, this was the most welcoming, best organized, and most friendly park. The facilities are all first-class, and visitors are invited to participate in a multitude of activities are scheduled each day. We were fortunate to rent an absent owner's lot, with paved pad, landscaping, and casita patio, but there are plenty of traditional rental sites also. Good cable, nothing to block satellites, and strong Verizon cell/data. We camped at Saguaro Co-op Park - Escapee Park in a Motorhome.

Only there for one night but was impressed by the attractiveness of the park. Very well maintained and with a lovely mountain view. Mostly seasonal, as this is a co-op, and understandably quite popular as a winter destination. We camped at Saguaro Co-op Park - Escapee Park in a Motorhome.

Nice SKP co-op park. Unique buildings on many of the lots, well maintained park. Lots of in-park SKP type activities, and close to Tombstone, Bisbee, and Tucson. Lots of desert behind the park for hikes. Still close to trains that run all night, even without blowing their horns. We camped at Saguaro Co-op Park - Escapee Park in a Motorhome.

I think this my favorite campground to date. The resort was designed by and for fulltime RVers who are members of Escapees. The fulltime philosophy and common sense approach is evident everywhere from the wide, paved roads to the excellent and much used activity center. The sites are both deep and wide. Almost all of them are leased and sport various levels of improvements. Many have “casitas”, which are small buildings with porches. The sites are all gravel but leaseholders decorate them with cactus gardens and other decorations. Here’s the deal: when the leaseholder is out seeing the country, they can put their site in the rental pool. Travelers who rent don’t have use of the casita, but generally there’s a nice porch and other upgrades to enjoy. The lease program is so popular that there’s a years-long waiting list for an opportunity to buy in! There are other sites that are set aside, some for short term visitors and others for long term visitors who come in for the winter. There are even paved no-hookup overnight spots.There are get-togethers every day and many activities. The property has no pool or spa and reservations are not accepted. Escapees facilities are famous for always finding a place for a traveler to park their RV even it has to temporarily be a spot with no hookups. The activity center has a large meeting room with a full-sized commercial kitchen, a large library, a workout room with modern equipment, and a crafts room. There’s also a nice porch with a view of the valley below and the Dragoon Mountains. We camped at Saguaro Co-op Park - Escapee Park in a Fifth Wheel.
