Very spacious sites, most fairly level, others less-so. Sites are situated so that you are not looking into your neighbor's RV and vice-versa. Sites are paved, as are roads. Modern bathrooms and showers, very clean. Park is generally well-maintained. Market store with good range of food, etc. Boats available for rent. Electric and water worked well, good setup for the dump (no sewer hookups). A very nice, scenic park with lots of walking and bird-watching opportunities within the park and nearby. They said Verizon works, and I did get some very minimal AT&T phone and cellular data/mail service occasionally. A very pleasant campground. - SW Rick
This campground has been significantly upgraded since our last visit several years ago. Now all RV sites have 50 amp electric and water hook-ups. The more popular campground is the east campground as opposed to the west campground. The east is a little more removed from the action. Just a caution, do not go for site 35 or 36. There is no way to tell when making reservations, but these are double (buddy) sites. We booked it not knowing this and changed, with a penalty, otherwise we would have been about 6 feet from someone we did not know, nor want to know. The campgrounds are fairly well spaced, but many are very unlevel, and you cannot really tell when making reservations how level or unlevel the site is. This is a birders paradise, and the reason for many campers visit. There is great hiking just outside the park at Sonoita Creek Natural Area. There is a big problem with cows and their waste since Arizona has an open range policy and the park does little or nothing to keep the cattle out. You do need a free permit that you obtain from the park Visitor Center. We found everyone, volunteers and staff, to be very helpful and friendly. Most of our visit the park was not crowded and we had no problem with our utilities. However, during the Christmas holidays the park was much more crowded and the voltage went down low enough that our electrical management system shut down the power. I suspect that, in the summer, when the park is very busy and everyone is using their air conditioning, that voltage drop could be a big problem. We had no problems with satellite since there are few trees. With Verizon we had poor 3g data and poor voice, even with our booster. We stayed at the park for our two week limit and will definitely visit again. - TheJim
The winter volunteers (all boat and bird tours and family programs cease in mid-April when the Visitor Center closes) are a welcoming and knowledgeable group that make the camping experience pleasantly memorable. The park is very busy with families camping, fishing and boating. I gave it a 7 because the majority of the campsites are not level and require multiple lego blocks to approach any kind of level state. - SunStar203
Small park just outside the 'center' of the town. Very quit, day and night. All sites are level and spacious, some pull-trough's. Two restrooms and one shower for men and the same amount for women. All clean. Some RV parts for sale in the small office.
DirecTV available for $ 2.50 per day. Flawless fast WiFi, even streaming is possible! Recommendable park. - Bluesbirdy
Patagonia is a good stop if traveling the southern AZ routes. We stopped for a few nights. Our 45 foot RV would not fit in the back in site the owner wanted us in. The tree branches were too low to back in enough. Fortunately there was only one other RV at the park at the time so we pulled across into one of the pull through sites and used all of it. Utilities worked well. TV and internet were okay. Owner a bit eccentric as another reviewer stated, but nice enough guy. If we were in the area again we would try the State Park. - Pamnken
This is our second winter staying at this park for a couple months. This year we were there from January through March. Very enjoyable - friendly folks, and the owner is great. Park is always clean and quiet. Walking distance to town, and lots of outdoor places to explore. Very reasonable rates by the month, the cable TV is very helpful, and the internet is fantastic, even for streaming movies. Our Verizon phones work very well here too. Big bonus is the park is highly dog friendly with a 4 dog limit. We like that. We'll be back. - migrantcohens
