To be honest, it was late when we arrived, and only stayed one night, but the park is very nice, clean, and well kept. The spaces are very tight for a big rig. We have a 40 foot motorhome, and selected a pull through site, that was so tight that it was almost impossible to get into and let the slides out. You had to be positioned just right to clear the cement poles they put up to protect the utilities. We will go back at some time in the future, but I will not get a pull through site. it appeared that the back in sites were more open for a big rig. We camped at Picacho Peak State Park in a Motorhome.

We have stayed several times and always had positive experiences. The sites are spread out in the desert vegetation with lots of space between. There are some pull-throughs with views of the mountains and some back-ins. They tend to be level. There is some highway noise but not enough to be a problem. We camped at Picacho Peak State Park in a Travel Trailer.

Our third time to camp at Picacho which is a very well run and scenic park. The rest rooms were kept very clean and the showers are spacious. My only complaint about the showers is that they have those water restricting spray heads that mean that the water is hot at the top of your head, warm at your shoulders and cold by the time it hits your waist. I understand the reason for this, but it makes for chilly showers. I also wish that there were a couple of paths to the restrooms cutting through the campground loops so that if you're camped in a spot far from the restrooms you didn't have to walk all the way around the loop to get to them. These are minor issues though and we would definitely stay here again. We camped at Picacho Peak State Park in a Travel Trailer.

Campsite was clean and mostly level, but picnic table/firepit was too far away to really use. No water or sewer at site, but dump station at entrance, with potable water. Good spacing between sites, and very pretty desert location. Well-maintained hiking trails and friendly/helpful staff. Traffic/train noise from the interstate is audible, but after a while you get used to it. We camped at Picacho Peak State Park in a Travel Trailer.

Hunter trail is a awesome hike, strenuous and exposed, and should only be taken if fit, in cooler weather and with plenty of water. There are several other trails, well marked.

Stayed 2 nights. No water or sewer at the sights. You really feel like you are camping out! Beautiful sunsets. You have a picnic table and BBQ grill. Plenty on space between you and your neighbor. We camped at Picacho Peak State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Most sites a bit too close for our liking although well spaced when compared to commercial campgrounds, the outside of the loops would be better. Many folks with fires at night so it gets a bit smoky. You get a good deal of road and train noise although not to the point where it bothered us. Those 3 things give this campground an 8 instead of a 10. Good hiking in the park and much more nearby if you do some research. We liked Casa Grande Mountian Park, behind the Love's station on I-10.

What a great place to stay! Nice big sites and great scenery and it felt like a true camping experience. No sewer hookups, but they had 3 big bathroom areas for each loop that were close. The bathrooms are very clean and had very large showers with great water pressure. A fire pit is available at your site and had a nice picnic table, we enjoyed our stay and will be back! Had great Verizon and AT&T coverage. We camped at Picacho Peak State Park in a Motorhome.

We've been here 3 different times and enjoyed it each time. It's in a desert setting convenient to I-10. The highway and train noise were distant enough so it was not a problem. There are many hiking opportunities. The restroom/shower buildings are very nice. Sites are electric but do not have water hookups. Potable water is available at the dump station. We like A13 for the view and shade on the patio side. A18, A20, and A21 were either too close to other sites or the table was on the wrong side. This trip in February the campground was full. We were glad we made reservations. In a December and January trip the campground was not full. We camped at Picacho Peak State Park in a Motorhome.

Clean, well-maintained State Park. Good, paved interior roads; mostly level, paved sites. Sites are roomy, long and wide; both pull-throughs and back-ins, with views of impressive Picacho Peak. Sites are Electric only (no water); yet the same price as other AZ Parks with Electric & Water. There is some noise from I-10 and frequent trains, but they didn't bother us with the RV windows up at night. Plenty of hiking trails, some easy and others challenging. Not a lot to do in the area for a lengthy stay, but we would stay here again if passing through. We camped at Picacho Peak State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

If you have kids (or grandkids) take them to Rooster Cogburn's Ostrich Ranch, 1/4-mile down the Frontage Road - lots of animals to feed - in safe, cute displays. They'll love it!

Loved this park! When we go RVing, we go to get away from it all, so the fact that there "wasn't a lot to do nearby" wasn't a problem for us. The park is right in the middle of a saguaro forest with beautiful peaks all around, most prominently Picacho. Spaces are well spaced so you don't hear your neighbors. Beautiful starry skies that you don't get to enjoy when you're near large towns or in tree filled RV parks. Although we could see the train and traffic on I-10, we couldn't hear it. Stayed in A-7, the pull-thrus are convenient semi-circles. Nicely laid out park! We camped at Picacho Peak State Park in a Motorhome.

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.

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.

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.
