This is our 4th visit over the years and it remains one of our all time favorites. If it only had sewer, this would be a 10+. The layout, spaciousness, desert scenery, night view of the city, friendly helpful staff and multitude of birds make this park always someplace we anticipate returning to. We camped at Usery Mountain Regional Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Beautiful scenery! Sonora Desert at its finest. Large campsites placed far apart. Miles of hiking trails (watch out for cactus!). Very clean. Large archery and gun range near-by. Very quiet but close enough to Mesa for convenience to stores, if REALLY necessary. Second time there while traveling through. Last time we took an extra day or two so we could go hike to Wind Cave. Rangers were available for questions or help on hiking trail. We camped at Usery Mountain Regional Park in a Motorhome.

Usery Mountain is absolutely gorgeous. The sites are huge. Picnic tables and barbecues are at each site. You feel like you're away from everything but yet the town of Apache Junction is about 5 minutes away. It's a super park, hosts are nice and I can't think of anything negative other than there is no dump at your site. However, there is one on the property. We will definitely be back. We camped at Usery Mountain Regional Park in a Motorhome.

A beautiful spacious park with great camping facilities. The camping spots have lots of room around them so you aren't stacked in like so much cord wood. Friendly camp hosts. No sewer hookup but they do have a dump station. If spots aren't available you dry camp in overflow and await your turn. Max stay in the park is 14 days so spots turn over every day. It is up on a hill with a view of the lights of Phoenix. TV reception is excellent. We will definitely come back here again. We camped at Usery Mountain Regional Park in a Motorhome.

We really like this park. It is extremely busy in Feb and March but it is worth the hassle to get into. Current system has an overflow lot that you can stay in until a spot opens up for you but I understand that an on-line reservation system is about to be in place. Great hiking, clean facilities, great hosts, sites are well spaced with nice views, close to stores of all types. Electric and water at each site and a good dump station. We camped at Usery Mountain Regional Park in a Fifth Wheel.

In six months on the road, one of out favorite places. Wide open spaces, your own personal saguaro cactus. Great hiking and biking. Active and competent camp hosts, clean and well built restrooms and showers. For a regional park, quite amazing. Only real drawback is the lack of a sewer hookup. We camped at Usery Mountain Regional Park in a Travel Trailer.

This is a beautiful park in the foothills above Mesa. The sites are spacious and widely separated. The natural vegetation is abundant and provides good privacy. Some sites have views of the city that are exceptional at night. Sites are level, well maintained and clean. Although it looks and feels remote it is only a few miles to urban shopping area. We have absolutely no complaints and are looking forward to camping here again. We camped at Usery Mountain Regional Park in a Motorhome.

This was our first time in this park and we enjoyed it very much. You are only a few minutes from Mesa, but for the most part you feel removed from the city. There was occasional traffic sounds from the road and you are in the flight path to the airport. I kind of didn't like seeing planes when I wanted to look at the night sky, but the stars are beautiful here. We have a big rig and there are plenty of sites large enough. Didn't see the campground hosts much and they don't seem to be completely on top of their game, cigarette butts in the campsite, and some debris in the fire ring. Lots of coyote sounds and quite a lot of birds including owls at night, so that was nice. The park was quite empty, so we had lots of privacy. The park is about 25 miles from the Mayo Clinic, an easy drive from here. One thing to be careful of, we saw something moving behind our campsite this afternoon and it was a 3' long rattlesnake! Yikes! Yes I know, it's Arizona, it's hot, and we are in the desert. We camped at Usery Mountain Regional Park in a Fifth Wheel.

One of our favorite parks. We look to visit here any time we are in the area. Natural feeling only a few miles from urban convenience. Large private sites and wide roads. Excellent area for birding. Helpful and knowledgeable birding docent. Rating would be 10 if there was sewer hookups. We will definitely return. We camped at Usery Mountain Regional Park in a Fifth Wheel.

This is a very nice Phoenix area regional park. It is large and scenic with many hiking trails. They prefer to assign sites rather than letting you choose one. With our 40' motorhome, not all sites are suitable and many are not level. We came on off-season, the end of April, so we were allowed to choose our own. The sites have a lot of space around them with lush desert vegetation. There is a dump station. We would stay again. We camped at Usery Mountain Regional Park in a Motorhome.

We enjoyed this campground a lot. Had nice wide spots and was easy to pull into. Each site has a picnic table and fire ring. Nights were beautiful and we loved all the stars. Close to grocery stores and shopping but yet far enough out, to feel alone in the wilderness. Camp fires were permitted which was great. Lots of rain so foliage was plentiful which was good and bad, the dog was covered in burrs. You pull in through the gate, park, walk back to register and they assign a spot, which is okay. I guess if you know of a spot and it is open you can request it and get it. Nice place and we will return. We camped at Usery Mountain Regional Park in a Fifth Wheel.

This Maricopa County park is very similar to McDowell Mountain Regional Park. Both are county parks about 35 miles from each other. Usery is closer to the Phoenix metro area. At the main gate, we had to pull off to the side, fill out a registration form, and walk back. The attendant collected our fee, assigned a site, and we drove to the site. It was quiet with an occasional distant noise from the road that did not bother us. At night, we could see the lights of Apache Junction and Mesa. This park has ample space between sites, separated by native Sonoran Desert vegetation. We stayed at back-in site #23, which was level. They also have pull-through sites. All sites have a picnic table, fire ring, and pedestal grill. The restroom/shower buildings were clean and very modern. Each shower (two for men; two for women) had their own private entrance from the outside. We would stay here again. We camped at Usery Mountain Regional Park in a Motorhome.

Most sites are well spaced. The hiking and mountain biking in the park are both very good. Restrooms are newer and very clean. Private showers where you can actually adjust the temperature. We hiked the Pass Mountain Loop, Windcave Trail, and Merkle Nature Trail: all great. I did an 11-mile bike ride on fun trails. We had fires every night. I highly recommend this park for a family. Well worth the $25 per night. No reservations and it's very popular in prime season, so plan on getting stuck in the overflow camping for one night during high season.

Located near Mesa and Apache Junction, this is a good park. While not as well run as its sister park, Cave Creek, it never the less is more than adequate. The hosts are very rigid in terms of site selection and seemingly have little interest in helping RVers get into a preferred site. The manager must wield a heavy hand since we heard that "manager won't allow" it many times including when we asked hosts for recommendations on where to go for laundromats and propane and they couldn't tell us. About one-third of the sites need lots of leveling. The sites on the outside perimeter of the park have the best views and privacy. Virtually all types of shopping is available within a few miles. This is a favorite of snow birds based on the number of license plates from Canada, Minnesota and Michigan. One other note. Sandy, the resident birder, is very helpful and knowledgeable for those interested in the bird-life of this region. We camped at Usery Mountain Regional Park in a Motorhome.

This has been one of our favorite parks since we began staying here back in 2001. Since then they have added new 50 amp hookups and improved the dump so you can dump coming in as well as going out. There is also a new nature center by the entrance to the park. The thing we don't like is the quantum leap the rates took to $25 the first of the year. They charged us $17 to park in the overflow area in the group camping area. We only had to spend one night there. Usually the overflow is located at the park entrance and charge only $10 there. They must have been directed to maximize revenue anyway they could. We come here at least once a year to visit family down below and we love it.
