This is a wonderful park for hiking, solitude, quiet and experiencing the Sonoran desert. The sites are generally very large and fairly private, most are pull-throughs. Many good hiking trials leave right from the campground and the rangers offer free hiker shuttles to trail heads that allow you to hike back to the campground and experience real desert solitude. My only complaint is that when we arrived, we asked for a perimeter site, but were told there weren't any available that would fit our 31-foot RV. When we arrived at our site, it was not that great and there were plenty of large perimeter sites empty around us. I didn't bother to go ask for a change, but I felt that they could have accommodated us better. My advice is to arrive after 4 and pick your own site. We camped at Twin Peaks Campground (NPS Campground) in a Fifth Wheel.

A wonderful place. Dry unserviced sites but potable water and dump station available. Paved roadways and concrete pads nestled among 100+ year old Saguaro and Organ Pipe Cactus. Campground info says 40 ft limit but our 43 ft RV and TOAD (61-ft total length) had lots of parking and driving space. We loved, loved, loved this campground. We camped at Twin Peaks Campground (NPS Campground) in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

Some of the park's scenic backroads say they are for high ground clearance vehicles only but they were fine for our '08 Honda CR-V. Drive both the east and west loops and take a picnic basket along as you'll enjoy them and spend the whole day.

$6 per night including tax was the Golden Age passport rate for a night. There are water spigots throughout the campground as well as a two-lane dump station. The primitive site included a level concrete parking pad with a small patio area. There was also a pedestal BBQ unit and picnic table on each site. The generous-sized-for-National Park Service-campground site was surrounded by an area of sand and rocks with beautiful desert vegetation. Sites were large enough to allow for slide-outs, awnings, and the parking of a second vehicle. Roads throughout the campground are paved. There were many hummingbirds, curve-billed thrashers, black-throated sparrows, Gambel's quail, and butterflies flitting around the campground. Our site had a 360° view of the surrounding cactus-filled desert and mountains. This campground is located five miles north of the Mexican border and miles away from all conveniences-it's very quiet at all times and dark at night. Generator use was limited to two two-hour periods-8 to 10 a.m. and 4 to 6 p.m. There are solar showers at three of the restrooms. All the facilities were in immaculate condition. The monument area offers plenty of outdoor activities including scenic driving loops, hiking, biking, and picnicking. AT&T service was three bars of 2G and Verizon service were three - four bars of 4G LTE. There was no over-the-air TV. We received one English speaking radio station and several Mexican stations. We camped at Twin Peaks Campground (NPS Campground) in a Motorhome.

This park is very beautiful, a pleasure to visit, with extensive hiking trails, and wonderful informative presentations by Rangers. More of the park has been reopened, and we felt very safe there; even on hiking trails. Our site was spacious, with a cement pad, cement patio, picnic table, and barbecue. The showers and restrooms were so clean, although the shower water is solar heated - so be ready for a cool shower. The Rangers were very friendly and helpful. We camped at Twin Peaks Campground (NPS Campground) in a Travel Trailer.

The rate reflects a 50% senior discount. Nice, nice, nice. This is an unusually nice campground for a National Park Service campground. The roads in the campground are paved, but the sites are wonderfully level concrete. Nice! There are no hookups. There is fresh water at the dump station and a few water spigots throughout the campground, but it is best and easiest to get water at the dump. The generator hours are very restrictive at 8 util 10 and 4 until 6, either good or bad depending on your point of view. There are solar showers in the restrooms. It is a busy campground, but the sites are well-spaced. They do not take reservations, but the campground was never more than half-full during our almost two-week stay. There is an entrance booth, which was staffed about half of the time during our visit, where they will assign a few site, but they will let you change it if you don't like the assigned site. We were very surprised to find that we got very strong Verizon 4G data and, of course, voice. Satellite was not a problem since there are no trees. The really good news is that the new superintendent has opened the entire park. Previously a large part of the park was closed because of the fear of the illegals coming across the Mexico border. We drove and hiked though out the park with no problems. We camped at Twin Peaks Campground (NPS Campground) in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

There is a great grocery in Ajo, about 30 miles away.

Organ Pipe Cactus National Monument is a beautiful desert park. Immaculately maintained. I did not see so much as a cigarette butt on any trails or on the road, anywhere in the park. Very quiet (I camped in the no-generator area) and with amazing sunrises and sunsets. Excellent Verizon signal. Spent a week and will certainly return. We camped at Twin Peaks Campground (NPS Campground) in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

Ajo, about 40 miles north, is an attractive town with banks, post office and shopping. The Olsen's IGA market has everything you would find in most supermarkets and an Ace hardware store attached. Beautiful old churches built in the Mexican style, adobe storefronts, restaurants.

Nice NPS CG if you're seeking quiet and solitude. Generators are limited to 8AM to 10AM and 4PM to 6PM. There is also a No-Generator area. Hosts and rangers regularly patrol the grounds so security is very good. Solar heated showers are a bit anemic when there's cloud cover. No services except dump station, potable water, toilets and aforementioned solar heated showers. Most sites appeared to have a concrete pad which helps hold down dirt & dust in the RV. We camped at Twin Peaks Campground (NPS Campground) in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

Good Verizon MiFi signal.

Outstanding park at Organ Pipe National Monument. Great campsites with dyed desert brown flat cement pads. Pull through for any sized RV. Two lane dump and water station. Super clean! Nice restrooms with solar heated showers. Giant cactus next to pads. Perimeter walk on the outside of the park with well maintained paths. One of the nicest parks we have ever been to. No WiFi, no electricity. Used ACCESS pass for free entry. We camped at Twin Peaks Campground (NPS Campground) in a Motorhome.

Organ Pipe Cactus National Monument is one of the most magical places I have ever been. The Saguaro and the Organ Pipe Cactus are amazingly large and old. This is the only place you can find the Organ Pipe Cactus. We had a beautiful site at the campground with a picnic table, patio area, and a level cement pad. All of the sites are pull-through. The roads are a bit tight but we have a 38 ft. RV and managed. The staff was friendly and very knowledgeable about the area and taught us a lot. The trails are plentiful and well maintained. There were lovely places to walk your dog, programs at the amphitheater on the weekend, and our Verizon phones and WiFi worked but not real well. I can hardly wait to go back! Rate reflects Senior Pass. We camped at Twin Peaks Campground (NPS Campground) in a Fifth Wheel.

Beautiful campground! Park staff does a great job of keeping the campground clean. We saw them sweeping the pebbles off of a pad next to us. We spent 4 nights here, great place for star gazing & sunsets are beautiful. Very peaceful & quiet. We would return here when in the area.

Beautiful, remote sites in the Sonoran desert: paved, private and pull-through, each with picnic table and grill. If you value nature and quiet over amenities, this is the place for you. Spotless restrooms with camp sinks. Hiking, scenic drives and ranger programs. I had a decent ATT 3G signal, but my husband kept getting a Mexican service, so be careful if you use your phone. If you are worried about the location being right on the border (it is), we saw Border Patrol all over the place on our drive down from Phoenix and over to Tucson. Our rate reflects Senior Pass discount. We camped at Twin Peaks Campground (NPS Campground) in a Travel Trailer.

We came late and slipped the $20 into holder at gate. $12 night plus $8 entrance fee. Found great spot. Nice concrete pad with table. Generator hours 8-10 and 4-6 pm. Its great park in Sonoran desert. Your are camping by giant cactus's. No power, there are water spigots all around but for filling bottles only no connections. Hot and dry. Nice. Visitor center.

A large national park campground. All boon docking, no hookups. Clean flush toilets in restrooms, some with showers. Nice modern dump station with 2 lanes. Good deal for $12 a night. Well maintained with roomy sites. Gas available at Why, AZ and Lukeville, AZ on the border. This is a very remote place, but interesting. If you like peace and quiet this is the spot. Gas station in Why (Why Not) had free Wi-Fi that worked great. We camped at Twin Peaks Campground (NPS Campground) in a Motorhome.

We stayed here in a motor home. We paid the Golden Age passport rate. The normal rate is $12. The park is first come, first served, but park has 208 sites so seldom, if ever, fills (I think.) Each site has picnic table and BBQ grill. Very quiet park. Rangers and volunteers very helpful. Sites are wide and level. A few water spigots scattered around the park so you can add water to your tank if you have device to attach to non-threaded spigot. Climate could be very hot in summer. We camped at Twin Peaks Campground (NPS Campground) in a Motorhome.

Great campground! Nicely laid-out. Each pad has a very level, long spot for your rig. Surprisingly lots of cacti vegetation between spots. Clean bathrooms and showers. The showers on solar power, so when we showered in April – HOT! Staff & volunteers very nice. Well-kept park. Verizon 3G coverage very good. Gas/Diesel can be found 5 miles south in Lukeville, just before the border crossing, or 22 miles north in Why. We camped at Twin Peaks Campground (NPS Campground) in a Fifth Wheel.
