First of all, A 5 star resort "must" have WIFI for their customers. The park lets you buy WiFi from a third party vendor. Then when you drive in you have to make a hairpin turn to get out of traffic in the park to register. The sites are gravel mixed with dirt.

Most of the sites art flat halfway through and sloped the rest of the way. Also the utilities are at the for extreme end of the campsite. Forcing you to back your RV up all the way to the end and still use two sewer lines to connect. We camped at Picacho Peak RV Resort (55+ park) in a Motorhome.

We stayed here for three nights and would certainly return. The park was very clean and well landscaped. Our site was just wide enough for our trailer with three slides, but the length was fine, and we didn't have any issues getting the utilities connected. No wifi except in the library, which is fine with us. Cell coverage was strong. Noise from IH-10 and the railroad track beyond was always present. We slept with the AC blower going and the white noise was sufficient. Office hours are 9:00 am till 3:00 pm, and since we were leaving the park early and returning later we had an issue with getting in to pay for an extra night. We camped at Picacho Peak RV Resort (55+ park) in a Fifth Wheel.

Stayed overnight Overnight spaces are pull throughs and are large enough for motorhome and tow. There was a privacy fence, patio and picnic table. Nice spaces for an overnight stay. Lots of longer term residents in RV's and small cottages. Close together but very tidy. Large central complex with pool, hot tub, and activity center. Only negatives were pretty bad highway noise and no cable TV. We camped at Picacho Peak RV Resort (55+ park) in a Motorhome.

We stayed one night and wished we could stay a week. A beautiful park full of nice desert landscaping. A small but fully equipped park. We ate dinner in the cantina the food was good and very reasonably priced. Super clean, super well maintained. A great stop on I-10. We camped at Picacho Peak RV Resort (55+ park) in a Fifth Wheel.

Very nice park with easy to get into slots. Next door to the state park with plenty of hiking. Pool was warm as was the spa. Exercise room was well equipped and maintained. Free internet at the library only. Major draw back is that it is located next to the freeway and railroad. If this kind of noise bothers you it could be an issue. Do not miss the Ostrich farm next door. Its well worth the seven dollars. We camped at Picacho Peak RV Resort (55+ park) in a Motorhome.

We found this park to be very nice, we had never stayed here before when in this area and very happy we choose this park. It has several long term park models but they are not mixed with the rv sites. The park is very well maintained and the people very friendly. The water is very good, which is unusual in the desert. The Wifi costs even for short term visitors. The "club" facilities are nice as is all the common grounds. We choose the super sites. These sites have a paver patio with a private fence on two sides. These sites are long and wide. All the pull through sites are easy to get into and wide. The back ins are wide and have plenty of maneuverability for big rigs. The one down side to some people might be the distance to Tucson or Casa Grande. We find the lack of being in the city a plus. This will be a place we would return again.

Very nice park. Long pull through. We only slept there for one night but I would go again. No one was there, it was very quiet with a few people who live in homes or RV. I believe it is a place that most people go in the Winter to escape snow. What was strange is the office hours this time of year are 9-1. I could not get anyone on the phone and when I got there I had to fill out an envelope and provide my information like credit card, etc. I hate doing this, but there was no other way to stay. Thank goodness they had a security guard that was off duty that helped me. Otherwise I would have had no idea how to do this. Never stayed at a place where they did not have someone to check me in.

First Class spot, except they charge for overnight WiFi. Fenced dog run, large laundry, nice pool area, Extra large sites(new) but rock still needs to be packed down. Fuel and food (Subway and DQ) at highway exit. Most RV Parks have free WiFi so this park needs to get with the program. Staff was very friendly and helpful. Will stay again.

Convenient to freeway. Easy to maneuver a big rig. Super-size sites are level, spacious and have a patio with picnic table and privacy fence. Showers are clean and plenty of hot water. Laundry room looks really nice. Staff is very nice and helpful. The location is stunning, right at the base of PIcacho Peak. Just outside the park is plenty of room to take the dog for a walk. There is a charge for Wi-Fi but we were at the end of the row and got the free Wi-Fi from the truck stop. It worked fine. We have stayed here before and would stay again. A great park. Price reflects Escapees and off-season discounts. We camped at Picacho Peak RV Resort (55+ park) in a Fifth Wheel.

I would rate this park higher except for the wind and the highway noise, both of which they have no control over. The people were friendly, the view is outstanding. There are lots of activities. We stayed 2 nights and the second morning there was an awful smell from the sewage treatment area. I would stay again We camped at Picacho Peak RV Resort (55+ park) in a Motorhome.

This is an excellent park. Sites are compacted gravel and roads are concrete. FHU 50 amp worked great. There is a small gym and pool and it was very clean. Staff very solicitous. We have stayed here before and will again. Easy movement to and from the freeway. The traffic noise was not noticeable. We camped at Picacho Peak RV Resort (55+ park) in a Motorhome.

Rate reflects Good Sam rate for one night. Easy off and on I-10, some highway and train noise but it didn't keep me up all night. Hot tub could have been a little warmer for my taste but was nice to relax in, we were the only ones using it. In my opinion, the sites would be more user friendly had they been angled instead of straight for the pull thrus. We camped at Picacho Peak RV Resort (55+ park) in a Fifth Wheel.

Access to the sites we were placed in was awkward. The hookups are placed at the entrance of each site rather than the middle, so that when we placed our 5er out of the roadway, our sewer hose was not long enough to reach, so we ended up not connecting anything but the power. But the park was clean and staff friendly and helpful. We camped at Picacho Peak RV Resort (55+ park) in a Fifth Wheel.

Very scenic park located on the Picacho Peak mountainside. There are many Saguaro cactus scattered around the park, as well as other cactus plantings. The entry and courtyard area are quite impressive in a Mission Adobe style. Access is easy right off I-10, and sites are easy to get in and out of. All streets are paved, pads are concrete on gravel sites and quite a few have trees. Pool and Spa are in the Courtyard area, so are protected from wind. Clubhouse is huge, and seemed to us that there was something going all the time. This is a mixed park, in that, there are RV sites mixed with park models. Everyone was friendly! This is probably the friendliest park we have ever stayed in! I pay attention to Good Sam Ratings, and this park has some of the highest I have ever seen, like 10 10 9.5. we stayed here a year ago and now back again in November. A year ago the water was typical for Arizona, super hard and alkaline! You couldn't drink it. This year the park made the financial commitment to install Reverse Osmosis water plant for the entire park! The water now has to be the best in Arizona. We loved the park and we WILL return! I rate this park as a 10, and I don't give out 10's We camped at Picacho Peak RV Resort (55+ park) in a Fifth Wheel.
