Park is flat, dusty; sites are fairly level and there are a few skimpy trees around but it is in the Sonoran Desert. Huge feedlot down the road emits a smell that permeates the RV, even with windows closed. Also, the highway is fairly busy with big trucks going by at all hours of the night. Wi-Fi signal is weak and sometimes completely drops off. Due to the odor and noise, we would not stay here again. We camped at Wild West Ranch and RV Resort (formerly John Wayne RV Ranch) in a Motorhome.

While driving past the feedlots and smelling that 'smell' on our way to this park, we thought, 'oh oh..this doesn't look or smell good..' but, no worries. A nice little park. Wonderful park host who directed us to our site. We would definitely stay here again. We were tired and it was a welcome refuge. Rate reflects Passport America and we stayed one night. We camped at Wild West Ranch and RV Resort (formerly John Wayne RV Ranch) in a Fifth Wheel.

I liked this campground. It didn't smell like cows to me at all. Yes, there is a cattle feeding area a mile away, but I didn't smell the cattle at the campground. Yes, there are permanents on the back row, but I didn't see anything wrong there. I would have given it a better overall rating but the roads were dirt. It is a desert campground like tons of others with rocks and dust. The space I had was large and long. It had a concrete pad for the table but not for the motorhome. I didn't have Passport America (which I do now) but if I had it would have been a true bargain. The manager is a nice guy too. I would definitely stay there again.

Rate is Passport America rate for one night with 50 amp FHU. Park has gravel/dirt roads and pads. Sites are suitable for slide outs, but with little extra room. Park has many permanents/ long term stays. It is close to the road but highway noise was not noticeable; neither was any odor from the nearby large scale cattle/dairy operations. Experience was typical of many older Passport America parks, but for the money it was acceptable. We would stay here again. We camped at Wild West Ranch and RV Resort (formerly John Wayne RV Ranch) in a Motorhome.

I grew up watching the Duke westerns, and imagined that any park bearing his name would be rich in classy, old west ambiance. (Along the lines of Rose Valley RV Ranch in Silver City, but more so.) The only thing it was rich in was the smell of cattle manure from the several HUGE stockyards a mile down the road. The extent of visible improvements to make it a park, was the placement of small rocks to delineate the boundaries of each site. We've stayed in other desert sites, but this place is desolate and depressing.The Showers and washrooms were clean, but unheated. The shower stalls have no change section, so you step out into the open to dry and dress. (And, presumably, to display yourself to anyone around when someone opens the outside access door.) We planned to stay a week over the holidays, but one look (and one smell) convinced us otherwise. The woman in the office was polite and very understanding, and made no issue over our change in plans. I wonder that this might not have been the first such occurrence. I could only recommend this as a park and fly site, and then only if the wind is right. We camped at Wild West Ranch and RV Resort (formerly John Wayne RV Ranch) in a Motorhome.

Really loved this park. It's in the country, very affordable, very clean, very delightful. We will definitely be back many more times to stay--it's the perfect place to stop for a few days whether we're coming or going. A real mom and pop gem. We look forward to our next stop here.

Wow I am very surprised at this previous review. I am at this campground right now and it is very nice! The passport rate is $15.99 a night, the restrooms were very clean and new. All the rigs here are nice and so are the people. To say this place is scary- you must have stayed at a different park! Or are you a competitor? Shame on you.

Too much dust and way too close to a cattle feed lot. We did an over night and left early. Those who liked this park because it is cheap would not sway my decision to never stay here again. In addition they charged a dollar more that advertised in the book. We camped at Wild West Ranch and RV Resort (formerly John Wayne RV Ranch) in a Motorhome.

It was a big dust bowl. The area smelled like cattle. We didn't feel safe. Someone came to our coach and begged for money or food. I can't believe Passport America would even have them in their club. We camped at Wild West Ranch and RV Resort (formerly John Wayne RV Ranch) in a Motorhome.

I give this park a 9, we really liked it. Not run down at all! There are new owners who work there everyday. They seem to really care and have done a great job at turning the place around. Everything was clean, everyone was friendly- and cheap rates! We only stayed for 6 days, but will be back in Jan to stay for 3 months. Safe, clean, quiet, friendly, cheap- bravo.

Passport America park. Dust bowl. Looked very run down. Didn't feel safe there even in the daylight. We prepaid our reservation but gave it up cause we didn't get a good feeling about this place. No one at the office. Notes everywhere leaving instructions. This park is just down the road from a huge feedlot. Very smelly! Went into Casa Grande to a wonderful park with all amenities!!!

I agree with one of the reviews in that the place is run down a bit, but we didn’t feel unsafe about staying there. We came to the Tucson area to visit with friends and see the sites. The campground offered easy access, a great price, full hook-up and a concrete pad. With the Passport America discount it cost us $ 52.00 for our three day stay. If you’re a snow bird looking for an extended stay site, you’ll probably want to look else ware, but the campground suited our needs perfectly.

What a find! We loved this place! The office manager was so friendly, the park was clean and quiet, we met some really great people here. Close to Casa Grande Ruins, excellent hiking, the Casino, and more. We will definitely be back this winter! We camped at Wild West Ranch and RV Resort (formerly John Wayne RV Ranch) in a Motorhome.

Really quiet, nice place, cheap. We stayed here 2 years ago (when it was Table Top RV Park) and it has new owners now. They have really made a lot of positive changes. Planted a lot of trees, flowers, new lighting, better activity center at the ramada. We will be back next year! Close to the casino, nice people there.
