Another decent Maricopa county park. The park is a bit on the smaller side and some of the sites are closer together compared to other parks in the area. They just converted the group camping area to general use, so that should help some with getting reservations. Water and electric only, but dump station on site. Pull through sites are basically a wide spot in the road. Several sites aren't super level, but not horrible. There are other nicer regional parks near here so we won't be staying here in the future. Friendly hosts, convenient to stores, and some nice hiking trails. Decent Verizon coverage and clear sky for sattelite. We camped at Cave Creek Regional Park in a Motorhome.

Easy to get in and out of the park. Paved roads and sites. Pull through sites have water electric such that you need to pass hose and cord under your rig to hook up. Utilities worked fine. Although we love this park for the spacing of sites and how quiet it is, it has gotten very expensive for no sewer or internet. Most back in sites are not level and are too short for a big rig . We camped at Cave Creek Regional Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Tips for other Campers:

For the pull through sites, if you want your door to open to the site versus onto the road, your hookups will be on the wrong side so you will have to run your hose and electric under your rig to the connections.

Lots are large and well spaced for privacy. The website does not correctly portray each lot as some are extremely short & unlevel even though they claim to be big rig friendly. We actually had to cancel and leave because we were too long for the site we had reserved. No sewer. LOTS of flies due to surrounding homes with horses and farm animals. Streets are wide and easy to maneuver. The pull through sites are the best for big rigs as they are long & level. 50 amps. Very quiet both day and night. Lots of hiking. Very busy; reservations in advance are a must. We camped at Cave Creek Regional Park in a Motorhome.

This is one of our favorite campgrounds. The only negative is the increasing cost to stay here & booking a site months ahead. We always go to the hoop dances at the Heard museum. We rent a car & it is great that Enterprise will pick you up here. Birds, coyotes, and javallenas abound. We camped at Cave Creek Regional Park in a Motorhome.

Stopped in to visit friends. Was really taken with how nice this area is. My wife and I are not hikers but if we were, it looks like this place would be perfect. We did enjoy a couple of sunset walks. Plus everyone seemed to really be enjoying their time here. Always a good sign!

It was very clean with picnic tables, fire pits. My wife liked the hot water showers and quality bathrooms. The staff was good and very helpful. They had an interesting Nature Center that we enjoyed.

It looks like you need to reserve well in advance if you want to be here over a weekend.

But do come. This is as beautiful as the desert gets!! We camped at Cave Creek Regional Park in a Motorhome.

This campground is not as big as some of the other Maricopa County campgrounds, but it is very beautiful and quiet, with a new double dumpsite and lots of hiking trails. Most sites are very well spread out. They were also letting people without reservations use the group site as overflow camping, but I don't know the rules or limitations of those, so you should have reservations or call. Verizon was 2/5 bars, but it is only about 6 miles to a Walmart or Home Depot with 5 bars. Lots of nice shops and restaurants in the town of Cave Creek and nearby Carefree. I enjoyed the birds and bunnies hopping around. We camped at Cave Creek Regional Park in a Motorhome.

Saw another poster had problems with desert rodents eating electrical wire in his tow vehicle. It is true there are lots of critters here, but some lights under your RV and tow vehicle will help deter pests.

This is a well maintained quiet campground. Beautiful sunsets and views. Nice hiking trail- not strenuous. Spacious sites. Near to restaurants and shopping yet feels quiet and remote. Only drawback - no sewer connection but has dump site. We camped at Cave Creek Regional Park in a Fifth Wheel.

City park with nice spots , only 44 sites, no sewer but a dump station. Very quite with great walking / hiking trails . Easy in / out with 45 ft. plus towed. Park is fairly new and showers / rest rooms are excellent but small ,some paved sites, ours was gravel but very level. Walmart, grocery and shopping 5 miles from park, would stay again. We camped at Cave Creek Regional Park in a Motorhome.

No discount available. Site 7 is a large, paved, level site with water and 50 amp electric. No sewer at the site, but a dump station is available within the campground. Satellite reception was good. Verizon cell/MiFi reception was good. We enjoyed our 7-night stay at Cave Creek, but had a rodent or animal get into the engine compartment of our car. On two consecutive mornings we discovered it had chewed electrical wires. The repair costs for two trips to the dealer was $600. Because of this, we are not sure we would stay again. We camped at Cave Creek Regional Park in a Motorhome.

We don't normally stay in government campgrounds but we are really happy that we made an exception. There is no cable (OTA TV was excellent), no wifi (Sprint 3g worked fine) and no sewer connection (if only here for a few days this is not a problem) but it does have 50amp electric. The sites were large and well spaced and included a concrete picnic table and fire ring. The gravel around the fire pit and table appears to be raked between each visitor. This park is very busy in the winter and reservations are suggested (there is an $8 reservation fee). The best part of the park is how quiet and dark it is and still on the edge of a very large metro area. We camped at Cave Creek Regional Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Site was level. Campground is quiet though there is a "rodeo" arena to the south. We heard it one day but only for a few hrs. Pretty good OTA signal. We were able to pick up the AFC and NFC championship games! Verizon was only 1 bar LTE and 4 bar 3G but enough to allow my wife to perform her online work duties including VOIP using the hotspot on her iPhone. Close to shopping and laundromat in Cave Creek. We camped at Cave Creek Regional Park in a Motorhome.

This is an awesome park--away from it all, yet still convenient! Beautiful, well-spaced out sites. Lots to do in the park: hike, horse-back riding, etc. and the Visitor Center has great displays and info. Heard coyotes in the distance at night. Park staff are wonderful! Quite a bargain for such amenities. The bathrooms were immaculate and separate private, locking showers with a water-saver spigot was more than adequate for a really good shower. A real "gem" for camping in the Phoenix/Scottsdale area. We camped at Cave Creek Regional Park in a Tent Trailer.

Sites are spacious and most are well separated. Each site has a picnic table and BBQ pit. We had site #17 and it had no shade and the road was on the other side so the only way we could sit outside in the warm afternoon was to sit in the street. We had a decent Verizon signal during our stay. Great trails right from the campground. We camped at Cave Creek Regional Park in a Fifth Wheel.
