5 Parks near Patagonia, Arizona
Nov 2016 - $30.00
We stayed here mid-week in mid-November, and the park was less than half full. We originally reserved site 16 which was very near the lake, but it was pretty short and had quite a slope toward the lake so we changed to site 91. That site was very nice.
The park is a distance from any town so be sure to bring all of your supplies. There is a small park store with some basics but the prices are high.
The location is very nice and seems very popular for fishing and birding. There are a lot of birds around the lake, and one of the rangers is very knowledgeable and provides bird walks a couple of times a week. There is also a visitors center, but it is only open from Friday through Monday so we were not able to enter it. On the whole this is a nice park if you can enjoy it as we did in the middle of the week somewhat off-season. - Walter48

We stayed for a week in a 5th wheel. This is a very crowded park and is nearly always full on the weekends. Water and electric only. Dump station on premises. Great for birding and hiking. The vegetation is severely overgrown. I had to climb on top of my trailer and trim my way into my site which was horribly off level side to side, by more than 6 inches. Took me over an hour to hook up to leave the park because of the site being so far off level. Then I had to go down and turn around in a small turnaround. Again the trees and bushes were overhanging the road and I had to trim my way out. We had to put up with five connected sites having an outdoor football party with four TVs setup blasting all day long with the associated drinking and swearing for four days. Upon leaving the ranger said they didn't know about it. Really?
If you arrive after dark good luck finding your site as there is virtually no signage to direct you. I will not return to this park. - TD700

We were very close to the lake but away from the beach, so our dog could swim in the lake. Dogs aren't allowed on the beach. It's quieter away from the beach area and more private also. We stayed 3 nights. Our site was asphalt, spacious, had some shade, and included a fire ring and picnic table. Great hiking available. There is a trail at the end of the lake for hiking and bird watching. There were some free range cattle in the area of the trail with a big bull that appeared a bit bothered by our presence. - skidiver

Clean, tidy and well cared for RV park. Superb WiFi - no trouble streaming movies. Host was friendly and helpful. Laundry area was spotless as was the shower and restrooms. Quiet, a short walk from downtown Patagonia and close to The Nature Conservancy's Patagonia Preserve - excellent birding. We spend a week here each year. Best RV park we've found in Arizona. Highly recommended. - Billy Lee

This is a nice little RV park with level sites and fast wifi. There's no TV unless you have your own satellite dish or buy their DirecTV connection. Our pull through site was very level with grass. Hookups were fine. There is an orchard next door with a gate and walking path to take the dog. The park was very quiet and pleasant. There was nothing to complain about. Nearby Patagonia Lake State Park was packed while this RV park was less than half full. - Dr. John

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

The road into the park and the campground road are paved, as is all the parking for the sites. We have a 23 foot trailer and had no trouble getting into site 6, in spite of the 22 foot recommends max. It seems like a 25 foot could easily get in here as well and use our site or site 7. There are also a coupe others that look big enough, but a vehicle would have to be parked near the restrooms. All sites have a picnic table, fire pit, bear box and tent pad. There are water spigots at each site that actually have threads, so we could have come here with empty tanks. The sites are mostly nicely spaced. The pit toilet was clean. We had 2 bars of ATT LTE or 1 bar of 4G. There is great hiking both from the campground and from the trailhead. However, these are steep and rocky trails (apparently the trail builders had not heard of switchbacks as there are lots he climbs straight up the hill), so if you are looking for an afternoon stroll, these may not be for you. - ALbums

This is a great little spot in Madera Canyon near Green Valley, AZ. The toilets are vault. There are picnic tables and bear proof storage lockers. I've stayed here over the last 3 years and never saw a bear. The hiking is good. The best is the birding in the canyon. Many migrate here in winter and spring. The humming birds are prolific. Using a Golden Age Pass the cost is $5. Two week limit. - waterwoman

This park is a mixed bag--the staff are nice, the laundry room is small but clean and affordable, there is a pet walk area behind the park. There are a lot of permanent residents but most rigs are respectable-looking. Overall, the maintenance is poor, the sites are too close together and there is a fair amount of traffic noise. I would probably stay here again for a day or two but would not make it a destination. The price reflects a Passport America discount on my first day of three. - mockturtle

We stayed here 2 days and would stay again. While there is some debris around the edges and on the terrific path near the park (perfect for the dogs); the park is otherwise fine. Dated, yes, but so what? The price shown was before a discount. The park has full amenities-- the basics. I prefer dirt and gravel to having everything (!) paved over; I was more comfortable walking our 3 large dogs here. I don't get the other reviewers' comments about "year-rounders." Yes, there are some residence RVs and a mobile homes here, but they appeared to be well-kept and quiet. We were here 2 nights. - beckydmc

They never cleaned the bathrooms in the 3 days we were there. Sites were way too close. Sitting at the picnic table, if I had leaned back, I could have touched our neighbors RV. Trashy old trailers all over the place. The WiFi wasn't awful most of the time. Dog poop everywhere! YUCK! - LTR

This is our 2nd time staying here. Our site was good. Away from the pet training/boarding business this time. People friendly. Went to several functions. Showers clean, restaurant open Thur,Fri,Sat & is pretty good. I like staying at this park. I like that they have picnic tables at each site. Just a nice atmosphere and beautiful mountain views. Loved hiking the Santa Rita mtns, took different trails this year. Took copper mine tour and the titan missile tour. They were putting in a sauna but was not finished when we left. There's an area to wash your car, which is nice. We stayed 3 wks here. Plan on coming back next year. Fyi. Huge open area to pull into when you first arrive or when ready to leave to unhook or hook up tow vehicle and not be in anyone's way. - Upnorthmich

We stayed 2 months. Great view of the Mts from our site. Noisy traffic from highway. Dog park is just dirt and no lights after dark. Has a dog wash. Doesn't seem to be a lot of organized activites except for crafts and potlucks. Information in the clubhouses (3 ring binder)on things to do in the area is from 2005-2006. Some shade trees towards the front. Has a weekend restaurant that locals use. Most of the community seems older. No hiking or biking groups or planned physical activities. Wifi is poor unless you go into the clubhouse. Lots of cozy rooms to hang out in. Large saltwater pool. I don't think I would stay for 2 months again. - MKHL

Large gravel space but would have preferred a pull thru. There was originally no picnic table at our site but camp host brought one over almost immediately. I felt very welcomed here. Joined a chair yoga class & Thai-chi several days a week. Pretty nice restaurant, enjoyed the whirlpool. Workout room, separate yoga room, nice library & pool. Had several pot lucks the month we were there. Bathrooms seemed to be newly updated but shower heads were a bit too 'hard' like needles on skin. Could really use a shower curtain between shower & dressing area or provide a different shower head to adjust. Love the green valley area. Lots to do. Went hiking into Santa Rita mtns. Tucson about 45 min away. Casino within 20 min. One thing to note; may not want to be on north end of park. There is large dog boarding & training center right next door and had lots of consistent barking. Will request spot on the other side of park next time. But will definitely be back. - Upnorthmich
