Conveniently right off I-10 freeway but could not hear any noise. Older park under new management. 1/2 mfg homes - 1/2 RV park -- RV park 1/3 full perm residence - 1/3 short term - 1/3 vacant. Not very social - only saw 4 or 5 people during our 3 days but lets be honest the temp was around 110 s-o-o-o nobody venturing outside. Hosts are new and have lived there since March 2016 - very friendly and helpful. Scenery was underwhelming - flat as a pancake with mountains in the distance. Our site had shade in the PM however full blast sun in the AM. This park is geared for snowbirds in the cooler months during the winter which according to hosts is packed during the winter, very social and one large block party.
This is a reasonably OK place to stay for 1 or 2 nights (during the summer heat) but no more than that unless you like relentless heat. There is a Family Dollar, MacDonald's, Circle K, and a bar close by but that is it. Tucson is about 25 minutes away and that is were the attractions are located. Pull-through site easy access and exit. Utilities were in good condition and worked well. Wi-Fi OK however don't expect TV without a satellite dish. There is no convenience store on sight. Pool is maintained along with Jacuzzi. Propane refills available on site. This is definitely NOT a resort just a basic no frills RV park. - Camino Travelers

A little over priced for what we got. Lousy slow 2nd rate WiFi. Densely compacted trailer park created a uncomfortable feeling. No designated dog park. Won`t be back. - zzzya

The lady running the place was very cordial. The water was unusable, but it was because of the city's water system. She gave me plenty of bottled water to make up for it. She made me feel at home here, clean and easy to get into the site and easy to get out. Very quiet here except for the trains, but for the price it was easy to deal with. I will come back to stay again without hesitation. Made my visit with my daughter very pleasant. - Bear2656

This is our go-to park in the Tucson area. There is nothing special about it other than a great Passport America rate for 50A full hookups, and it is near where our family lives so a good value for us. It is a gravel lot, and, unfortunately on this visit, it had rained (and continued to rain) quite a lot, and the "overnight" spots just to the right of the office were nearly on an island with a moat of water around. The sites themselves were well above the water. We returned to the park in March and it was dry. This time we parked on the second row from the office, and we think those are preferable sites for us due to the length and levelness. - pattic777

The customer service here was outstanding - unfortunately, that's about the only good thing about this park. It would be a good value as an overnight, just to get off the road, except it's such a dilapidated and inconveniently designed facility. The sites are very unlevel, and the utilities inconveniently placed. They are mostly dirt, and you can tell from the wear on the dirt that this would not be a good place to be if it were raining. I wanted to just pull in without unhitching, but to get my trailer on the only level spot where I didn't have to unhitch, I couldn't hook up to the sewer. Also, there is no potable water here, but they graciously give you a large bag of bottled water when you arrive. There is wifi available in the little clubhouse, but they turn it off until someone asks to use it, so it is only available when the office is open. I actually would have rated this park overall much lower, had it not been for the great customer service. - KAP99

We have been staying at this county run campground for several years now and this stay was a bit of a disappointment. Seems as tho the electrical service is sadly out of date and run down and not working as it should. We lost power twice and had to go to the camp host to get it back up and running. There were several other sites in A Loop that also experienced outages. The host told us that Pima County was not going to update or repair the system anytime soon. The 30 amp service is probably only putting out maybe 22-23 amps at best and if you turn on the AC, microwave, and water heater and then the significant other turns on the hair dryer, out goes the power. So we had to use each high draw item with great care so as not to trip the section breaker. This has been one of our very favorite destination parks in the past but if they don't upgrade the power I doubt we will be going back and will seek out another desert type campground for future stays. The camp hosts were very helpful and did get power restored twice for us while we were there................ - BankShot

Gilbert Ray makes a good base camp for exploring the Tucson environs. The park does not take reservations so it pays to come in early and on a weekday. We came in on a Thurs. morning around 11:00 and the campground was already about 3/4 full I'd say and by that night it was totally full and remained that way all through the weekend. The check-in system is well thought out and the staff is good about matching the size of your rig to the size of the site they assign to you. The sites are close together but feel private because of all the native vegetation. All sites have electricity but no water or sewer hook-ups. There are dump stations and water fill stations available however and there are water spigots scattered around each loop. Flush toilets and sinks are available in the restrooms, but no showers. The Visitors Center has friendly knowledgeable staff and is well stocked with information on trails in the area, things to do, places to eat, where to get RV services etc. As others have said, do not approach the park via Gates Pass unless you're in a camper van or truck camper or something similar. It is extremely narrow, steep and twisting! A must drive in your car or tow vehicle though! - BruceandKathyWA

Near I-10. Beautiful cacti, clean. New management. majority are year round camps. Not very dog friendly, one accident ant they will immediately kick you out. Dog "run" is tiny. Refused to give me a Good Sam discount, even though it is a Good Sam Park. Check in says they do not ask for discount eligibility at check in. Manager says they do. Both say if you ask for a discount after the fact they will not. Dumpsters are inconvenient. Manager was condescending. Wifi does not work. Cable TV costs extra. - Lumatic

Park is mostly full timers in modulars with spaces in between. Stayed two nights. Swimming pool is heated and well maintained. Quiet location. - Tonyl

Very nice park - well situated for those who want to be in north Tucson, near shopping and the freeway. Sites are not as close as other parks. Access to some of the rows is a bit tight. We had to back up to get out because the sites across would not allow enough room but - it was no problem. The park staff was very nice and accommodating. They adjusted our stay length with no fuss. This park has dog runs (2) and they recommend walking your dog on the perimeter which worked for us. It was VERY QUIET here. I recommend it! - Hungry Horse Android

Very nice easy to find quite park. All spots are on gravel with just basic connections. We had a pull thru spot which was very large. Had room for my daughters truck also on site. Our spot was closest to the rode but very little traffic or noise. Verizon cell service was very good. - Kempscamp

We spent five nights in one of the back-in sites. It was large enough for the 28 foot 5th wheel and our truck. Internet was present but slow. TV stations limited to about 10 on the antenna. Sites are flat. There are no picnic tables. - Gtwood65

Internal roads are wide and paved, sites are gravel, mostly level (needed one leveling board) and fairly easy to back into, facilities worked well, but are located at the back of the site so you will need longer cords/hoses, site was satellite friendly. Staff were friendly but deal with Christine (owner's wife), park WiFi is free/unsecured and works best in the early morning or very late at night, it's best to bring your own internet solution, T-Mobile cell service was fair to good 4G LTE, same for Tracfone. They do have some activities but not a great abundance like some other parks. The park was very quiet. We were able to move to a nicer site for our final month with no problems. We stayed here for Feb/Mar this year and plan to return for Feb/Mar next year. - KDSpree

The snowbirds had left, we had the park virtually to ourselves (so this is a review for the park off season only). As a result we had unobstructed wonderful views of the surrounding park, and amazing quiet. WiFI was really good (but then we were the only one's there) It's about 20 min from Tuscon, other shopping closer. If you're wanting solitude, this park, in off season, is a great deal! - Two Travellers

Huge, nice park with tons of amenities, most of which we didn't use. The park was mostly empty during our stay, but were told it is full during the winter months. As previous reviewers have said, it is a bit far from town, but worth it for the location to the national park and the openness. Staff was exceedingly friendly and helpful. - 2Openspaces

We really loved this place. It did not have that big park feel . The long term people were very friendly and informative. The staff was also pleasant. There was not fenced dog run but there was plenty of walking area just outside the gated park. Looked like there was a lot of activities if we were staying longer. We found plenty to do outside the park as well. A visit to the Sonora Desert Museum and Old Tucson Studios is a must. We also found our way to Mission San Xavier del Bac "The White Dove of the Desert". Definitely on our list for a long term stay in the future. - Shacky

Although this park is very large, it felt very comfortable and quiet. This was about 7 miles off of the freeway. It was in a very beautiful desert setting. There were quite a few seasonal residents. It seems very well run. We were only there for one night, so did not use any of the facilities. There are separate areas for campers with pets. There were beautiful desert trails where we walked our dog. The only drawback was that there was no cable TV. We would definitely go back if we are in the area again. - Calteri

This is a very well kept park just outside of downtown Tucson and very close to Saguaro National Park and the Museum of the Sonoran Desert. The wifi was exceptional, the best I've had in five months of traveling. We were actually able to stream Netflix! - RVerMJ

This is really a different RV park. It is a small family run 14 site facility located a few miles due west of Tucson, but close enough to get to any of the Tucson sites and shopping. We didn't have any issues getting our 41 ft motorhome in and out of the park, but it is tight so be prepared. They offer a clothes washer no charge, and cloths lines are also provided if you choose to dry in this manner. No dryers are available. The sites and grounds are all sand, fairly level, and firm and stable to level up on. Verizon and AT&T are usable, and good satellite access from all sites. They do not rent to anyone under 55. The owners are a couple of the most friendly we have ever met, and go out of their way to make sure everything is to your satisfaction. In the three days we stayed, we met several of the others there, and found all to be friendly and welcoming. Be aware that the facility is basis, no pool, etc, and is really off the "beaten track", but quiet and peaceful. It appears that the residents are comprised of some seasonal campers and some that are working in the area. - Johnson's

This little out of the way park has only 14 sites and no frills. It does have one of the nicest sites we have had on our trip. Very nice walled, concrete, private patio with a built in grill table and walkway lighting.
The owners are very friendly and will help you as much as they can to make your stay pleasant.
The park is very well maintained.
No restrooms, showers, pool, or much of anything else. They do have a nice little tiki bar that the owner built but I never did see anyone use it.
A lot of the residence are full time and work in the area.
We enjoyed being out and away from the large busy parks for awhile.
Easy access to all the wonderful sites and things to do around Tucson. Very close to Gates pass, Sanora state park, Tuson mountain park and all the hiking trails. About 8 miles to shopping and the highway into Tucson.
Would probably stay here again if they could do something about the barking dog across the street. - digger2280

This is a park of contrasts, the landscaping at the entrance is very nice, and although the park is literally next to the Interstate Highway retaining wall, the wall is painted and since the roadway is so high, you don't hear any traffic noise. Check in was very pleasant, the office area was nice with a spacious, comfortable lounge. We were escorted to our pull through site which was long and appeared of average width for a campsite. That is when the fun began, we pulled into the site leaving about 4' on the drivers side for the slide outs, we were told, this is two sites, you need to move over so the motorhome wheels were about 12" from the utilities to allow room for another RV which will pull in the opposite direction than we were facing. Our slide outs are both on the drivers side, and when extended were a few inches past the utility box. After awhile, the same gentleman pulled up leading a 5th wheel into the neighboring site. To make a long story short, once our neighbor was guided into just the "right" spot, his slides were deployed on both sides of his rig, without exaggeration, we had about 12" to 14" between our rigs, the neighbor had to maneuver such that his slide was positioned so we could open the door to our motorhome. Fortunately our new neighbor and I have good senses of humor, so at least we did not have any issues with each other. Shortly thereafter a motorhome pulled in on the other side of us, and the slides were also about 12" apart. All the sites in our section were that tight, other areas had a bit more space, but not much. The grounds and restrooms were very clean though, thus the 'good' rating. - Wyn

Park sits below a huge freeway wall but noise goes mostly over the top. Our site was small and at odd angles with our neighbors. Some traffic noise is apparent but is tolerable. No Wifi, no cable. Sites are level and electric is solid and stable. VERY small patio with picnic table. Access roads within the park are good for large RVs but some sites are quite small. Main advantage of this park is easy off and on from freeway and quick access to all things near Tucson. - cba

Stayed for a month. Bathrooms/showers were never cleaned. Grime and hair in showers daily. Laundry has swamp cooler, mosquitos everywhere, the doors were always left open. The lounge was excellent and shows where the money is spent. It has a big screen tv, ac, games puzzles and pool table. Just outside is a pool. Dog walk is inconvenient and outside park. People were very nice. Quiet park. - lovemyfifthwheel

The managers were very helpful. We stayed three nights here and loved it. We even had the help of folks getting out of the park as well. I really did like this park it was close enough to Hwy 10 to give you access to the city but far enough that you didn't hear any of the hwy noises. - CourtneyHawke

Have stayed before and came back. Park is under new management. It is not the happy friendly place of the past. Most of our friends that return every year had already left because of the unprofessionalism of how the park is now run. Management involves themselves in Loud and profane Public conflict with patrons. They have several noisy dogs that are allowed to disturb residents. We hadn't been into it a week and had a note on our door stating that it is resident responsibility to get rid of the existing weeds. Children are allowed to run freely and unattended through the park and tamper with residents belongings. WiFi was so weak it was unusable. Gravel sites are close together. Facilities rundown and unkempt . The dog area is not picked up or clean and was full of trash. The Receipt of Payment seemed sketchy. It said balance due and had the amount we just paid as still owing. The stay was so disappointing that we left much sooner than we wanted to. We will not stay at tratel again. - PurpleGypsie

Here is the problem that we had with this park. Restrooms to us were somewhat clean, but instead of having a door for each stall, you had a curtain, not good. Most of the sites are 30 amp and not really that good. They parked rigs in areas to me that are not safe, like on the exit roads. We had a bit of a problem getting out, due to the way they were parking these people. We really didn't have hardly any room for sitting outside. No, we will never go back to that park.
