Electric only. Central dump & water on site. Their website advertised an option for $15 non-electric sites. On arrival we found they electrified all sites, so full price required. Bath & showers clean, sites spread out and level. With ample solar panels we chose this park for the non-electric option at low cost, but with that no longer an option we would not stay here again. We camped at Picacho Peak State Park in a Motorhome.

Way overpriced for what you get! Electric only - no water. Very remote. If you are into hiking there are some good trails but that's all there is to do. We camped at Picacho Peak State Park in a Motorhome.

There is nothing to do except hike. Nearest shopping is in Eloy, about 15 miles, and that has almost nothing. So Casa Grande is closest - 30 miles

This is a favorite park of ours. Sites are paved, well spaced and level. The only reason I do not give this park a 10 is the sites are electric only; meaning it is necessary to be very conservative with water usage or to visit the dump & water station during a visit of more than about 4 days. We camped at Picacho Peak State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Hiking, desert scenery. Reasonably close to Tucson (40 miles) if you need a big city. About 10 miles to groceries etc.

If road noise bothers you, avoid this one. Noise from nearby I-10 and parallel train tracks was constant day and night. We left early and forfeited a nights fee because of it. Otherwise sited were nicely spaced, restrooms and showers were very clean, and staff was friendly and helpful. We camped at Picacho Peak State Park in a Travel Trailer.

Park is conveniently located off of I-10 and on a few occasions you could hear the highway, but wasn't bad at all. Sites were well spaced and had picnic table and fire ring. Nice hiking at the park, but not much in the immediate area. Lots of things to do within a 30-45 minute drive though! We camped at Picacho Peak State Park in a Motorhome.

This is a very nice park with a lot of hiking trails. It is close to the freeway so depending if your site is, it could be noisy. We had a great time and would definitely come back. We camped at Picacho Peak State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

This is a stunning campground. It's just far enough off of the interstate to still be convenient, but be relatively quiet. It's very dark and quiet at night. The sites are arranged around a circle, with lots of space and natural desert landscaping between them, for plenty of privacy. The scenery is spectacular. There is electric only at the sites, but a dump station with water is available nearby. The only thing negative I have to say about this place is that it's a little expensive for electric only. There is WiFi available for $3/day or $8/3 days, and its not bad as campground wifi services go. The Verizon signal is strong. Everything is in impeccable condition, and the customer service is great. We camped at Picacho Peak State Park in a Travel Trailer.

This is some distance from the nearest cities, which is really part of its charm. There are several nature trails at the park, and a hike to the top of the peak for expert climbers.

This is a fantastic campground. Beautiful vistas, huge level campsites, friendly staff. The bathrooms are "Disney" clean. And all for only $25.00. Note: campers don't have to pay the $7.00 entrance fee. We camped at Picacho Peak State Park in a Travel Trailer.

We stayed here twice, on the way to Tucson and on the way back. Beautiful setting on the slopes of Picacho Peak with large campsites with plenty of space between other sites, set among the saguaro. Park has a combo of pull-thru and back-in sites, and back-in sites are more than long enough so we didn't have have to unhitch our 24' trailer. Not much in the way of shade so keep that in mind if it's hot. Many have electrical hook-ups but no water or sewer although a dump station with potable water is available. The freeway and train tracks are in site about 1 mile away, and while some traffic noise was noticed, it wasn't bothersome. Bathrooms were clean and modern with hot showers. Lots of hiking and the sunsets and sunrises are stunning. This was one of our favorite parks of our trip, and if there were more to do in the area (we can't hike) we would have stayed longer. Weekends seems to be booked but we had no problem getting drive-up stops on the weekdays. We camped at Picacho Peak State Park in a Travel Trailer.

A simply great state park with 50-30-20 amp electric service! All sites offer space, privacy, table and fire ring. Big rig accessible with paved roads and sites. Potable water and dump available. Great views of a very green desert. Will definitely return! We camped at Picacho Peak State Park in a Motorhome.

This is a medium-sized state park RV/campground in a gorgeous oasis in the Sonoran Desert - Picacho Peak State Park. The lush desert landscape is just amazing - a photographer's dream. Even the landscaping within the campground was beautiful. The RV spaces are concrete and are well-planned for great views, privacy, and space. My site had a private, small ramada (shade structure) with a picnic table and fire ring at the end of a short gravel path. The site was immaculate - park employees clean each one between visits. There is no lighting within the park except for the comfort stations - which allows for good star-gazing. The only downside is that you can hear the highway - faint but noticeable. No water or sewer, but that's not an issue for me. Otherwise it's very quiet and peaceful. I stayed three nights and would have extended my stay if the park hadn't been sold out. I can't wait to return! We camped at Picacho Peak State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Huge sites, very peaceful state park. Camping fee includes $7 entry fee. We stayed two nights in a travel trailer to hike Picacho Peak. We filled out tanks with potable water near the dump station. There is a fee to dump tanks (for non-campers), but we didn't use it. Nice park for a short visit. We camped at Picacho Peak State Park in a Travel Trailer.

This is a great place to stay for a few days. The park has 50 amp electric at each site, potable water, and holding tank dump at the campground entrance. The showers and restroom were very clean and well maintained. We like to hike and thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Picacho Peak. We camped at Picacho Peak State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Nice state park, but the location was a little noisy with I-10 constant noise and the train that parallels the freeway. Good space between sites, lots of hiking trails within the park. Verizon MiFi worked well. Park Wi-Fi was available for $$ so we didn't use it. We were surprised that the sites has 20/30/50 amp hookup but no water. We didn't realize that until after we were leveled and unhooked so we had to haul water. Nice stopover between Phoenix and Tucson and a chance to be away from the big city locations. We camped at Picacho Peak State Park in a Fifth Wheel.
