I cannot believe this place even has the nerve to tack resort onto its title. I'm not sure if it is adventure bound resort or cactus county? Who knows both names are visible in the park. The place is borderline trailer park but not the nice kind. There are quite a few long termers with very cluttered unsightly spaces. The park is showing its age and the lack of upkeep does not help. Spaces are weedy with lots of debris from trees everywhere. The expensive 50 amp spaces seemed a lot cleaner though walking around the park. The walking trails are not safe to use due to cholla cactus everywhere outside the fence on the ground. The washers in the laundry room were gross. The WiFi works good though. Snowbird rates seem high for what you get. - AZprospector

We stayed one night nice staff easy after office check-in. Looks like they have recently combined this park with another and ongoing improvements are going on. Snowbirds had left so there were full-time folks there, very friendly and helpful. Easy drive to service's and looked to have many large pull-thru sites. Watch out if you're walking you're dogs; the grounds are clear, but just past the property line many Choa cactus. Yes my dog Jimmy got a face full of cactus needles the locals were very helpful and gave us a map to local vet. Happy ending, would stay again. - Flying Unicorn

We were very pleased with this campground. It was far enough from freeway and railways to not have any noise at night. The park was very clean, well maintained and the staff were very friendly and helpful. The on-site facilities were clean and in excellent condition. We will stay here again. - garymac01

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

As stated in another review, if you are not looking for a swimming pool, gym, or breakfast delivered to your door this is the place to stay. Although this park does not have the amenities that some of the other parks have if you are looking for peace and quiet this is the place to stay. The owners will go out of there way to make your stay the best ever. There is a tiki hut with flowing water to calm your nerves. At the end of a crazy day of sightseeing, you can also have a party under the hut with advance notice to the owners. I definitely will return. All sights have spacious concrete patios. Please take note that this is a 55+ park. - Papa01

I called the owner while we were still in New Mexico. He told us the -J was a 55+ park with only 13 sites and gave us directions to the park once we arrived in Tucson. He met us upon our arrival at the park and assisted us in parking the M/H. His wife, took care of the registration and information about the local area.
We were very impressed with the sites; A concrete patio with a very decorative wall, a stand for our grill, water at the grill area, Saguaro Cactus and other local shrubs around the patio, and local lighting at night. Some of the wildlife we saw in and around our site: Gambel's quail (were a daily visitor), rabbits, small lizards, ground squirrels, and we also had a coyote pass through our site early one morning. Free laundry (washing machines) and clothes lines for drying , a pavillion with a tropical theme is available for use , and if you have your mail delivered to the park address, it will be delivered to your site mail box. We stayed here for 4 months and discovered that the owners are truly sincere in having a very nice 55+ park, and it shows, both in attitude and personality. We hope to stay here again next year. - MorrisJudy

This is a very quiet, clean park on the east side of Tucson. Friendly office staff. Would stay here again. - TeamElk-Rib
Apr 2012 - $38.00
Expensive, and noisy. Seems like lots of snowbirds, most of whom were gone by now. Some of the residents were on their way out; many saying loud goodbyes at 7:30 am. Planes & road noise too. On the great side, the WiFi was really good and the staff was helpful. - Barnes family
Feb 2011 - $30.00
Not a lot offered, considering the high daily and monthly rates. Too many uncontrolled pets, yearly - settled in - residents, and tawdry around the edges, including 4 burned out RVs that were never removed. Plane noise from Davis Monthan AFB and train line just below. Pool and spa are small and not clean. We would not stay here again! - mrfixer

We only stayed here one night to break in our new RV and make sure there were no issues and this place is great. The spots are huge, the grounds well kept and the staff very nice. Would stay here again. - Steve & Terri
Oct 2015 - $15.00
Stayed 2 weeks and an extra day on accident. They nicely informed me but then offered me the extra day since they had vacancy. Only RV place in ORO valley I think. But would still be hard to beat. - xplorers

This park was at the top of the list as far as State Parks we have stayed at in our travels. We are full timers and usually have difficulty getting state parks with sites large enough to accommodate our 40' rig with toad. Plenty of room here and the site was also quite wide as well. Many sites with shade trees, well groomed and clean campground. We stayed here for a full week and there are many things to see and do in nearby Tucson. definitely would stay here again. Dogs are allowed,. Ours were happy about that. Lots of great hiking trails into the Catalina Mtns from within the park. - 1strunaway

This park is close to the freeway, but most of the noise seemed to come from the immediate surrounding area in the form of unmuffled cars / trucks or trucks from the nearby truck stop. Yup, this is not a ritzy area, but it wasn't threatening either.
It is all gravel sites with no real vegetation or trees, so you're out in the open. They do have a decent selection of cable TV channels, although the picture quality wasn't that good. We're returning to the area in the next few weeks, and we'll probably see what else is available that might be a little quieter, but if nothing pops up, we'd return here again. - coffeetime

If you are looking for a clean, safe park for a couple days or a couple of months, without all the extra stuff and expense, this is the place. Awesome people at the front desk, very clean bathrooms and laundry room. Crystal clear pool with a club house/rec room. Stable power, WI-fi, and cable included. - Tony and Jen
Mar 2015 - $25.00
This park is being expanded. Road is gravel all throughout. It is ok for an overnight but not for more than that. Close to the freeway and quiet. Next to gas stations. Did not see any security and did not have any issues with it. Main problem noticed was in the shower/bathroom area: despite staff attempts to keeping the building clean, no one addressed the fact that all drains are very clogged and as soon as the 1st person takes a shower, the water will over-run on the entire building. This is completely unsafe not only because of bacteria moving from one place to another but also because electricity, hair blowers, etc. The park has a sign that says AAA approved, but I have my doubts that AAA would acknowledge a situation like this.
Staff was friendly. - Isolda M Quintero
Mar 2010 - $20.00
This is an older trailer park with the empty spaces rented to RV's. No amenities at all. Pads are gravel with full hook-ups and concrete patio slabs. Some spots are partially shaded. Some are difficult to get into. Location is excellent: right in the middle of town. Price is the weekly rate. We stayed 2-1/2 weeks. Be advised that the park is sold and will be closing approximately 3/31/2011. - whizbang
Dec 2007 - $13.00
This is trailer park with RV Spaces. Located at Grant & Swan it is conveniently located in the middle of town. Has a pool and no organized activities, which we appreciate. Rate is $399 a month and includes Electric. It ain't the Ritz, but it works. - bobnjoann
May 2015 - $31.00
I really enjoyed my stay here. The sites were clean (back in only) and the grounds were very nice. The real pleasant parts about Desert Pueblo, in my opinion, were all the different amenities they had - picnic tables, clubhouses, nice trees/scenery, putting green, pools, hot tubs, lawn games and so on. We stayed for a few days only as we were passing through Tucson, but it was quite enjoyable and we would've loved to have stayed longer. We'll definitely keep them in mind when we swing back into town. - Victor Cecic
Mar 2015 - $31.00
The sites are large, deep, and clean. There is no noise from the busy street. When we called to make reservations, the person who answered the phone was curt and rude, but the person who checked us in was pleasant. The biggest disappointments were no Wi-Fi and no cable. This park is a mobile home community, and overnighters are not the focus. We will not stay here again. - LB Rohn
Feb 2011 - $34.00
Because the park recently discovered a felon in the park, they now require mobile home buyers and RVers staying a month at the monthly rate to pay $60/couple, in cash, and complete a four page financial application. Some of the information required is your social security number, photo copy of drivers license, mortgage history, employment history including current source and amount of income, bank and credit card account numbers, plus information on ALL vehicles, boats, etc you own. It goes on. Management could not assure that this information would be protected. Interestingly, I was told I could stay as long as I wish at the daily rate and not complete the application. That makes the felon argument sound a little absurd. I would never stay here. - tillie

We were here for 2 weeks. This was the second time we stayed here. The park is lovely with lots of gardens, many among the rv spots. Beautiful desert foliage and fauna, birds galore. Lots of day time activities, however nights are a little bleak. Even the rec room is locked at 10pm leaving night owls BORED. If you're here and thrive on the planned day time activities, you are in the right place. Office staff is a little aloof. Peaceful despite the coyotes howling at night. Property has some older buildings but the laundry rooms and bath/shower rooms are all up to date and very clean. Weekly and monthly rates are discounted. - dilly

Nice RV park with friendly management, residents. Mostly people coming to spend winter during our stay. Park is convenient to most activities. We were only there for a week but will return. Appears there are lots of activities / interests in this park. During our stay there was a Halloween hot dog / potluck dinner. Some people wore costumes & there was costume contest. Residents seem compatible & enjoy the park. - bnkelly

This park is constantly upgrading. They have paved roads, an awesome gym, pool, hot tub, and many more amenities. Yet it still remains "natural." The roads are paved but the sites are rock. There are cacti and Palo Verde trees everywhere. The sites are not all lined up in neat rows, but conform to the natural landscape. There is live entertainment twice a week. It is free, but they do "pass the hat." There are a variety of daily activities, including biking, hiking, sewing, creative writing, bocce ball, and many others. The owner and staff go out of their way to ensure customer satisfaction. - Nibot
Mar 2015 - $34.00
We were visiting friends came in on a Sunday they were very relaxed about paying and were able to wait until Monday. Our site was very nice and convenient to the pool and club house. But we were NEVER informed that there was a shower room available for RVers. This is a big oversight in my mind, very disappointing to learn two days before we are leaving that showers were available. The shower rooms are very nice upgraded with new tile it sure would have been nice to have the use of them for our whole visit! - DebbieSisters

Very disappointed. I thought Encore/Equity Lifestyle was a large company. This park has very low standards. Very weedy in common areas and some sites. Multiple RV's on single sites, work trailers and boats in yards, overflowing carports with junk. I like the fact that kids are allowed to live here and my dobermans are OK in this park. Bikers are also prevalent at all hours. Not too many teenagers yet, just a few that live here. The clubhouse leaves much to be desired, with a lack of activities and exercise bikes. The only bright spot is the admin lady, very friendly, but she has to work maintenance all the time. This is a park that I will not stay in again. - jbanner77
Feb 2011 - $25.00
Encore/Equity Lifestyle Park. FULL OF TRAILER HOMES AND OLD "PARK MODELS". Several recently vacant sites. I believe they are really trying to bring this park back. One new building with one shower/rest room and laundry. Real nice pool and clubhouse. We have enjoyed two winters in Encore park in S Texas, but will not be using them when traveling anymore. - jdonais
Oct 2015 - $45.00
Very attractive, clean and well-managed park, largely occupied by seasonal residents. Laundry room large and spotlessly clean, all front-loader washers. They use a card rather than quarters so you might have $ left on your card when you leave, as I did. The CATV was good. They have TengoInternet WiFi, which I didn't use. There is an electronic entry gate for which you are issued a card. If you have a pet, it must be walked in the pet area, a separate fenced area which you access with a key. There is a fair amount of noise here, as it is in a high traffic area but it's a very nice park with plenty of amenities. - mockturtle

Great showers and restrooms. Nice paved and level parking pads. Gated community with very active clubhouse and activities. Friendly staff. Overall this was a nice stay in a clean park. This was a 3 night stay and we still could have stayed longer. The location is in town right at Pantano and Broadway. We plan to return for another stay. - Jim and Cass
Aug 2014 - $41.00
We only stayed here for a couple nights, but wished we could stay a bit longer. Most of these places are permanent trailer homes, but there are a few temporary sights. There are lots of activities going on all the time and we were welcomed to join any we wanted. There is a very nice pool and hot tub area. And a masseuse on sight! All the homes are meticulously maintained. This location is also right on "The Loop" bike trail, but unfortunately they are still working on some of the segments nearby. It was also very, very quiet here at night. The campsite was on gravel,with a concrete parking area and patio. - ALbums

Gilbert Ray is a fabulous campground. It is located in a beautiful scenic area, yet is pretty convenient to Tucson services and shopping. There are limitless things to do in the area, including several hiking trails, the adjacent National Park, the outstanding Sonoran Desert Museum and the Old Tucson theme park. The scenery is marvelous, with views from most every site. The roads are mostly one-way and easy to maneuver. The only downside is a lack of shower facilities, which makes it harder to conserve water when dry camping. Overall, I highly recommend this park when staying in the Tucson area. - MrSunshine

This park is big rig accessible but it is a good idea to check out available sites before accepting it. Big rigs need to be careful with some uneven sites with power on the wrong side for easy access. Having said that, this is a great park with fantastic views, great facilities including dump stations and water fill. No full hookups but with the 7 day limit, we had no problem. Arrive early in the day, traffic in gets very heavy in the afternoons. Slow down on Kinney Road, 35 means 35 with deep dips and bumps we called it the "roller coaster". They accept cash and checks only. Staff is very friendly and accommodating. - Beech35p
Jan 2015 - $25.00
The only thing not to like about this campground is that you are strictly limited to seven days of camping before you have to leave for seven days. The campground is in a beautiful Sonoran desert setting. Most sites are level and fairly well-separated from your neighbors, with enough vegetation for additional visual separation. There are sites of all lengths, some to accommodate a larger RV. There are only 30 amp electrical hookups, but the power seemed to be nice and strong -- no low voltage situations like you often get at older campgrounds. There is fresh water fill that is very convenient near the dump stations, and there are two dump stations. There are also fresh water fill faucets scattered throughout the campground. It is nice and quiet at night and this is well enforced by the very efficient volunteer camp hosts. Security seems to be very good. It is fairly dark at night; unfortunately, the park has a few bright lights but not bad. There is no problem finding satellite since there are no trees. Our Verizon voice and date (4g) signal were very good. If you are not familiar with the area you will want to take a look at the directions on the park web site. You do not want to bring a large RV over Gates Pass Road, but it is an OK road for accessing Tucson from the park driving a regular vehicle. - TheJim

Good location. Quiet no hwy or train noise. Friendly owners. Electric and water good. Verizon good. We would stay here again. Price is PA. - margeandbob

I stayed in a premium desert view site in back. Most people there return every winter. and its quiet with trail access to the desert bordering Tucson Mountain Park. Most sites are level with pea stone and larger stone. Unfortunately mine was higher in the back then the front which would have been ok except the hook ups were on the wrong side.
Laundry could have been cleaner.
WiFi is like a lot of parks, hit or miss.
Atmosphere is casual and fun.
Some planned activities. No pool, restrooms or showers.
My rate was monthly at $585 Rate is cheaper for other sites but the ones close to the road are of course more noisy.
Campgrounds in Tucson are pricey so its still a good deal.
I would come back. - apackof2

Interior roads are paved, sites are level and are fairly spacious. Facilities worked well. Site was satellite friendly. Staff were friendly, park Wi-Fi does not work (bring your own solution), T-Mobile cell/data service was good. The sites at the back of the park are quiet; we had a premium site. I would have rated it higher if the Wi-Fi worked. We would stay here again. - KDSpree

I stayed here for 2 nights to have my motorhome checked and repaired. The shower rooms were rundown but clean. Manager very friendly and helpful. But there is more to a park then just the manager and shower rooms! The permanent residents there think that they are better than those of us that are just there for a few days. I sat in my lawn chair and watched as the ringleader of the larger group put on a mask of concern while talking to the manager then as she was walking away with most of the group she tells them that "The fat Bitch needs to go". I would have returned to that park just because the manager was so nice but also because she promised to put me as far away from that group but she no longer works there. - Annita

Rate is Passport America. It is primarily a mobile home community with extremely narrow, level, gravel sites. Our 26' fifth wheel only just made it into the site. Office staff friendly and helpful. It is run down and in need of work..eg shower rail propped up, no ventilation in the bathrooms so hot and smell moldy due to the wet, dirty, old mop propped up against the wall you asked to use to wipe the floor after you. Cleanliness in the showers was passable, although fittings are old so the floor looks unclean. One electrical outlet post didn't work at all and the box lid was broken. The electrical outlet post that did work also had a broken box lid. We had broken sleep at night due to road noise, frequent emergency sirens passing and train whistles. We wouldn't stay here again. - Monaire Corporati

We had a reservation, but arrived late in the afternoon and the office was closed. Two gentlemen relaxing outside the recreation room told us to just pick any empty space; which we did. We were to have dinner with friends and needed to freshen up. One of the gentlemen kindly let us use his key to the restrooms and showers. We only stayed one night and left early in the morning, but in the short time we were there, met some very nice people who called Miracle RV Park home. We were told that the park was the oldest in Tucson. It had a very nostalgic feel. Think Lucy and Ricky Ricardo on the road. Well kept, clean and quiet, with friendly folks. Very convenient to the University District and downtown Tucson. Not a good choice for behemoth RV's. But if your RV foot print is moderate, like ours, the Miracle RV Park is a great place to stay. - arascal

Great clean rv park. Level gravel sites with concrete "porches." Free Wi-Fi, that works great, 50 Amp, friendly staff, with escort & back-in assistance. - Randy C
Mar 2015 - $19.00
This park honors the Passport America rate for an entire week, so we stayed 7 days @ $19 per night, which was a great deal! The park is a mix of park models, some permanent residents, lots of winter visitors, and "just passing through", like us. The site was level, power and water were fine. The sites are gravel and each has a concrete patio. All are back-ins. We were escorted to our site. Some sites were kind of tight width-wise, situating the rig between the concrete patio and the sewer. So if this is a concern for you, you might want to preview your site. The interior roads are wide, so that's not an issue. This is not a "resort level" park, but they have a great clubhouse with an indoor pool and hot tub, billiards, library and community area. Lots of activities and everyone was friendly and welcoming. We'd actually consider returning for an extended winter stay. The laundry room was a bargain at $1.00 wash and $.75 dry. Park is located in south Tucson, so a bit of a drive into the main part of Tucson, but a nice compromise if you want to head south to Benson, Tombstone, etc. - DawnsDad

Stayed here for 1 week using the Passport America rate in March. (Many AZ parks will not do that until April.) It is nicer than what we expected. The airport is not that close so any noise is usually distant. There are permanents here but there is an entire area for RVs so you are with other shorter stay people. The staff is very friendly and helpful. The indoor pool was very nice, again better than expected. The sites are large with cement patios and hookups are easy to reach. We would stay here again and would tell our friends to stay here also. - Dave - Kathy

We stayed here for Escapade. Due to Escapade, traffic had us take a different exit than the GPS would have recommended to avoid short off-ramp. Escapade parking staff was amazing. Had a 50 amp full hookup site back-in site. Fairly close to each other but we had a row of bushes behind us which was nice. The sewer hookup was elevated but doable. Had good line of sight for our roof mounted satellite dish but only because it was toward the front of the fifth wheel. - Bob & Jo
Mar 2015 - $20.00
Spacious level sites on pavement or gravel. Some full hookups with 50 amp and some with 30. Good water pressure, poor wifi, good local television, spotty phone and data reception, easy access off I-10, quiet, dark and coyote singing. Not available if fairgrounds are being used for events. Dump station is new, but turn around to leave grounds is tight. Would stay again for an out in the country quiet evening. - RJourney
Jan 2015 - $20.00
Very friendly individual at check-in. Friendly people all around. Several different areas to park RV. Some in gravel parking lots, some near asphalt. Stayed a week for $100.00. People have to vacate the site when a horse show or an event happens at the fairgrounds. Speedway and drag strip close by and can hear the noise when they are racing or practicing. - SallyJack172
Aug 2015 - $30.00
Wi-Fi only works if you stand next to the manager's trailer. Useless through the rest of the park.
A COCKROACH fell ON MY FACE while I was taking a SHOWER!!! That pretty much says it all about this place. No... there's more and worse. There's a coded lock on the door (and a sign) to keep the prostitutes and druggies out of the bathrooms at night, but someone in the park props the door open every night so they come on in anyway. I tried to take a shower at 11, then midnight, then fell asleep and finally took a shower at 3am... the door was still propped open but at least druggies and prostitutes were gone.
Hot shower. That's all I can say. But a COCKROACH on my face. And be careful... in all the nooks and crannies and corners of the shower/laundry house are BROWN RECLUSE SPIDERS. I dropped my toothbrush by the sink and thank God I looked before I stuck my hand between the sink and wall.
It is not an experience I would ever care to repeat in my life. I'm an RVer, a traveler. After the reviews I read on Google, I expected a good experience, not the experience of staying in a seedy motel where prostitutes do their business. - Kayla Genteel

There is a sewer smell in the park. Spaces are small. Pull ins have pea gravel that gets stuck in your shoes. Gnats everywhere. Manager is judgemental on a person's looks. Dog walk inadequate and they will not allow certain breeds of dogs because they are on the 'aggressive breed' list. Wifi is expensive if you use it. Extra charge for more than 2 people. Not family friendly. - twerntme15
Mar 2015 - $30.00
The spaces are very small. We didn't have enough room to open our awning. It was quiet. The restrooms and laundry were clean, but there was a sewer smell in both. The restroom in the center of the park is nicer than the one in the main building. We could not get the WiFi to work at all. The roads were paved, but the sites were partially pea gravel. It was difficult to level the trailer in the gravel. It got inside of our shoes every time we entered or exited the trailer. We would stay there again. - GandolphJames

Very laid back with a mix of long term and one-night guests. The Good Sam discount and weekly prices are good. The pool is nice, although we wished there was a playground or grassy area for kids. The park is right next to the great bike/walk path that continues for miles in both directions, great for the dogs. The spots are close together. The laundry rooms are clean and modern, didn't use the bathrooms or showers. The construction on the bridge is now done, so the park is easy to access. - tinycirco
Sep 2015 - $53.00
Staff was exceptionally courteous at check in. I booked this through the Good Sam Directory. Rating was excellent. However, we were assigned a space that would not accommodate our 44' rig. They graciously allowed us to move to a space that just "barely" allowed the rig to be clear of the road. However, there was a palm tree blocking the door(we just barely were able to get out and in). This is a "retirement community" mostly of mobile homes. I was not aware of this. Beware, this place is """NOT""" pet friendly!!! Nor, is it big rig friendly. We were expected to drive our little dog to the tiny dog park in the "trash" area. - gooser
Mar 2015 - $55.00
Beautiful park. All paved and landscaped to the max. Pet areas adequate. Access is great except that city streets are rough and ill-maintained. Staff are responsive to visitors' requests and very helpful. Leisure facilities and activities keep people entertained and active. Group activities and small, "hobby" clubs are attractive. There is a good mix of overnight sites and residential sites. Peaceful, quiet, and convenient to shopping, the park is a very nice place to stop over, or to spend a season. Many people are leaving to go north for the summer, so the park is even more quiet and spaces are readily available. - george r
Feb 2015 - $53.00
Not as pet friendly as portrayed. Only about one third of the park accepts pets (that is to say where pets are allowed). Walking your pet throughout the remaining two thirds is not permitted. Yes, some inconsiderate owners probably fail to pick up after Fido. For those individuals, however, there are equal numbers (or more) readily available to tell you that pets = pests.
The WiFi is less than desirable and too often your connection fails. Sites are tight for those with larger rigs. Restrooms are 5 star clean and an array of scheduled events are offered weekly.
The future of this park, however, appears to be one of more permanent park models with only limited RV sites. - jeremiah g

A typical snowbird park with many park models, but a nice large area for RVs. Paved roads with some sites mostly gravel but with a concrete pad. Our site was concrete next to a lovely grassy area. Lots of amenities like spas and a heated pool. The restrooms in the NE part of the park are individual with showers included. We loved it here and would stay again. - R&S

We have been coming to RCW for 12 years. In most regards, it is a great park. Lots of activities and friendly folks. The problem is that in the 2014-2015 winter season, there has been an epidemic of bicycle thefts and management has been very slow in addressing the problem. My estimate is that over 50 bikes have been stolen. It appears that an organized crime ring is being tipped off by an insider and then coming in at night to steal the targeted expensive, high end bikes with professional burglar tools. Other snatch and grab thieves are coming in through gaps in the exterior fence. So if you come to this park, be prepared to exercise extraordinary measures to secure your person and property. - JeepnJim
Mar 2015 - $28.00
Stayed for the winter season after a visit last year, and we were pleasantly surprised how much we enjoyed it. Some of the most friendly people around, lots of activities to get involved in. However, the biggest issue was an ongoing problem with bike thefts, despite warnings to lock them up. Also, the continued air traffic from both the local air base & airport flight path made us consider other sites. However, this is still the best park in the Tucson area & we'll return next fall. We had a large pull through site with grass & a tree most of the season until we chose to stay a month longer, then we were moved to a gravel site with concrete patio. WiFi was slow at the peak of season, but best to have your own jet pack if you count on internet access. We will definitely stay again. - nw explorers

This is a small park paved with asphalt and walled in. That being said, it actually felt very nice. The back-in sites have rocks between them and a variety of local flora. Overall, it felt clean and friendly - which was probably due in part to the warm welcome from the staff.
This park is located in town and it's a great place to walk around or shop. Typically, we prefer greener parks, but this is an excellent place to start exploring in-town Tucson. - Dave and Sharon

I don't usually give a park 5 stars but the park is clean, quiet (there is an occasional train) and the pull-thru site spaces are 75' long and wide enough to handle huge rigs like my 65' train. Parks that can't handle us are still out there & since there are more & more of us who are full timers, and have larger rigs because this is our home.
While this is a small park, it is well laid out and every site is full service. There are 23 sites, 5 are pull through. There is a game room, laundry, and a small pool. There are currently no showers but the owners are trying to get permission from the city to add them. The couple who own the park are very nice and will do their best to help out in any way they can. Since this park has only been open since September 2015 everything is new.
We are here for the winter and it looks like a great place to stay. It is close to just about anything you might need & they will shuttle you somewhere if needed. I highly recommend this park. - Larry_P

This is a paved parking lot and seems to have opened recently. The managers are VERY nice and make you feel that you can ask for anything and they'll do their best to accommodate. The location, if you are here to see Tucson is great. You can bike 10 minutes right to the middle of downtown. The recreation room has table tennis and other games and everything is very clean and organized well. Nice small pool and very clean. The park has a van that can drive you to the street car station or maybe to downtown.
On the down side:
1. Internet was slower than a dial-up and sometimes you could not connect. Considering it was us and 2 more RVs in the park you can't blame it on too many users.
2. No cable TV
3. There are trains going though town and the air horn is LOUD. You get to hear it at ANY time, even in the middle of the night.
We would stay here again if we came to town. - Presidio40

Stayed in Site 108, not sure how it happens but every time we check into a new campground, the unit next door is run down and delapidated. Happened here too. Otherwise pretty decent spot. Wifi is a bad deal....if you need wifi, Tengointernet is lousy.
Used the wifi at the office on a daily basis and that worked well. A nuisance to have to do that though. The train is a bit of a bother, but after about the third night you will get used to it. Pretty good place overall. - hrw

We stayed here on and off (mostly on) for a year while we prepared to go full-timing. The staff are very friendly and helpful. The new manager is excellent and has made great improvements. We enjoyed the huge pool and attended several of the planned activities. Close to I-10, shopping, and a great bike path. We would highly recommend this park and look forward to staying here in the future. - Fiesta on wheels

Easy access to freeway but interior roads narrow. Charged extra to use credit card but staff friendly. Sites small and we barely fit. Water flowed with rust in it. Didn't hook up. Pull through sites at the very back with the units in storage and road narrow and hard to maneuver around parked vehicles. It appears run down. Trains most of the night and they blow their horns. Will not camp here again. - CindyRV

This RV Park is basically an old mobile home park. The sites are a concrete slab to park next to with water/electric/sewer hookups. The sites are dirt and gravel. There are no restroom/shower facilities. There is nothing except a place to park and hookup. The owner is friendly. Normal rate is $30, which is way too expensive for what it is, but the Passport America rate made this an OK place to spend the night. There is a train that runs once or twice during the day, but I never heard it at night. It is near the airport, but I never heard any plane noise during our stay. It is behind the Circle K gas station with no sign. Call the number and the owner will direct you to your site. We would stay here again. - sendthefire

This is a small park and is overwhelmed by winter visitors. The utilities did not handle all the traffic. For the first two weeks I did not have enough power to run my microwave. As visitors left and I was moved to a 50A site, the power improved to adequate, barely. This is probably the lowest priced park in Tucson and it is obvious no money is put back into the park.
The rate listed here is based on a monthly rate incl. electricity. Management is very nice and tries to be as helpful as possible with what they have to offer.
Surprisingly, the traffic noise from the nearby I-10 freeway was not an issue. Just so you know, this park is located in the northern section of Tucson and a long way from the Fairgrounds where most of the special activities like rallies occur. - Margo Armstrong

The rate reflects the Passport America discount. Campground was clear of weeds etc. Gravel roads and spaces with a picnic table. Registration staff friendly and helpful. We were escorted to our site. Did not use laundry, pool, wash rooms. Park is within a short drive to Tucson Mall and many major chain restaurants. My only concern was the 108 degree temperature and low electrical voltage, could only run one AC unit. - Outwest63

Rate was for Passport America. Okay park, a two night stay to get caught up on shopping and laundry. Managers were friendly and helpful. We had one of the first sites as you pull into park. Site was level gravel, but not a lot of room between sites. Wife was okay with laundry, but wished it would have had AC, with the high temps. The temperature was in the high 90's, so we ran both AC's a lot and voltage was steady. Would probably stay here again. - JJ & CC

Very nice park, lots of citrus trees. Very limited menu in cafe. Dog friendly, with a great dog run. I wasn't aware of any activities but it was early in the season. They were very accommodating when I needed a late checkout due to my RV being serviced at LazyDays and I had to leave my tow dolly in the space until my RV was returned to me. - AdventurousSoles

This is a nice KOA. Sites are large and well-maintained. Roads are paved; sites are gravel with a paved patio. There's a table and four chairs on each patio. Citrus trees are at every site. I had grapefruit and fresh-squeezed orange juice for breakfast, limes for guacamole, and lemons for lemonade. There are two large laundries in the park ($2 wash, $1.50 dry). There's a nice gift shop and a cafe that has burgers, etc. You can get a beer or mixed drink there, too. People are very friendly. The only complaint is that they don't let you know what activities they have planned. The campground is right next to Lazydays RV. If you need work done on your RV you can have it done there, but make sure you make an appointment several weeks ahead of time. Lazydays also has a parts store, and they give classes in driving an RV and how to cook in your convection oven. There is also a Camping World close by in case you need supplies. We plan on staying here any time we're in the Tucson area. - mrpeepers

We stayed here in Sept 2015. The park was almost empty still being very hot. Check in was quick and friendly. We had a pull through spot across from the office with grass and a patio and furniture. Spot was easy to get into. Hookups worked well. Cable was good about 25 channels. WIFI was useless didn't work for more than a few minutes if you could get on. The grass all over was being removed maybe reseeding or changing to rock? Don't know. Good place to stay, clean and secure at night. We will stay again. - blowing weeds

Tucson Meadows is primarily a mobile home park with 140 RV sites in the back of the property. Most of the sites are seasonal residents. About 30 of the sites seem available for people who want to stay for less than a month. Roads are paved and sites are gravel. The mobile home park is beautifully landscaped while the transient camper sites are not. Just gravel with full hookups. Big rig friendly. Lots of activities in the clubhouse. Full pool and workout room. Even though the RV sites are not visually pleasing, we would stay here again for a week or two. - lmg

I was really excited about staying here since I have before and really loved it. I have to say now that I will never come back. Previously I stayed for several months so I had a much better space. The short-timers are stuck with a narrow "patio" which doesn't allow you to have a good, large flat space under the awning. It also seems as if they hate dogs. They have all kinds of rules and will issue citations if you don't follow them. The "dog run" is on the side of the road with no fence and is filled with stickers so no one uses it.
Overall, I guess, as long as you stay here for at least a month and have no dogs then it's pretty nice. - AdventurousSoles

This is a 55+ community that's got full-timers, homeowners, and transient RV'ers. Right off the freeway, easy on/off and gated. Big, wide roads were easy to navigate. There is also a vacuum, air and water dispensers for all your rigs' needs right alongside the road in front of the restaurant/market. They do have a name tag requirement that is/can be inconvenient, but we didn't wear them, we only carried them with us (if needed), so it was no big deal. We LOVED the pool(s), pickle ball (we even took a lesson - for free!), and the community feel to the resort. The restaurant was great, especially on Friday night fish fry and a before-we-left breakfast. We were welcomed wherever we roamed. We used the showers/restrooms, which mine (women's) was very clean (hubby says his not-s0-much). Our complaint about the showers was that the hot water did NOT work in the morning, even after letting the water run for minutes (which I didn't like because of the waste.) It was about 12noon before hot water seemed to flow freely. We didn't inquire why/why not, we just adjusted to the times (maybe because we were too busy in the pool, walking, pickle balling that we didn't mind).
Our site was super long and level for our 5'er, which was plenty for our rig, plus "patio space" and our F350. Yes, there were no shade trees, and the lot is asphalt/gravel but we were ok with it and very comfortable.
Ok, now the not-so-good-
WiFi wasn't beneficial to daily/weekly travelers. You could get free WiFi in 3 places on the property, which was ok, but what a pain to have to travel out of your 5'er. CableTV only offered a few channels unless you wanted to pay for a larger package at a monthly rate.
We would recommend this resort for the community feel and the amenities. Way more then just a basic RV park for a week's stay - there are TONS of things to do (or not, depending on your preferences). - ErinandCorbin

What is up with these parks that market themselves as big rig friendly? The sites are very narrow with absolutely no patio area. Very expensive and very restrictive. Wearing a badge to be allowed to move around the park? Even to purchase items at the market? Yes, they have a lot of activities and it is in good repair, but entirely overrated when it comes to value. - The DnD Adventure

Rate indicated is based on weekly rate. Registration parking is in gravel parking lot across street south of office. Extremely friendly, efficient and knowledgeable office staff. You are escorted and assisted to your back-in site. Quiet, well located and strong utilities, graveled, level site which has a concrete patio and no picnic table. Centrally located recreation bldg with outdoor pool, pool tables, hall and many activities. Mostly park models and few short term sites with many snowbirds. Walk in desert right from park through gated fence on west end of park. Would stay again in this quiet, clean, well located park on west side of Tucson. - RJourney

This large park has not too many sites for temporarily visitors. It is the only park in the vicinity where we got "no vacancy" as an answer, the first time we dropped by. Very large (and over 30 ft wide) fairly level back-in sites. Nice swimming pool and a small spa next to the recreation building where many activities are offered. In the building you'll also find the laundry room and clean restrooms and showers. No restrooms anywhere else in the park. The park is very quiet during the night, no annoying traffic, train or airplane noise. Park offers free open Wi-Fi, but that is not worth the name. Wi-Fi signal strength is bad and connection holds for about a minute or two. That's why the owner displays a sign: 'Wi-Fi connection not guaranteed'. Paid Wi-Fi available.
Your full hookup has no cable and your antenna will pick up about six TV channels. We stayed a week in this very nice park, however the discounted price of $46 per night is (IMHO) rather expensive for the offered services. - Bluesbirdy
Feb 2013 - $46.00
The park is OK. It is clean and quiet. However, for the nightly rate of $46.27 (after Good Sam discount), we feel it was overpriced because we still had to buy cable TV and Wi-Fi. Wi-Fi was not very strong. - dbfay
Apr 2015 - $30.00
Wi-Fi doesn't work unless you are next to office. No clubhouse as advertised. Many permanent residents have trashy looking spaces. One trailer is the definition of 'trailer park trash' with Christmas lights still up. Manager is rude and unfriendly. Do NOT recommend this park. Will never return. - twerntme15

I highly recommend this park because of the excellent management - friendly, accommodating, helpful, and efficient. Laundry facilities are reasonably priced, and restrooms are spacious and clean. Easy access from major highway. Would definitely return. - sheila mal

This is a Passport America park, and for the price, it worked for us. There are quite a few long time residents here with flat tires and lots of outside things. Cable did not work, so we used the satellite and the antennae. Lots to do in Tucson, and we recommend the Desert Museum and Old Tucson. Our site is fairly level but very difficult to back into. We had been assured of a pull-through site, but it was given to someone else. We will stay here again due to the price and convenience to tour the area. - rolling homeless

The other reviews are accurate, this is one of the nicest parks we've stayed in. Everyone was friendly and included us in the park activities as if we were permanent residents. Great separate camp hosts for the RV section. Every area of this park is spotless. I checked "not" pet friendly because they only accept small dogs, and they may not be walked in the park. Designated pet areas are available, but the animal must be carried or driven there. We loved this park and have added it to our winter itinerary. Only negative is you need 20-30 feet of sewer hose to reach the connections if you park near your patio. - Westside

We really enjoyed this park. The people were friendly, the place was sparkling clean and it was close to the hiking areas in Tucson. The sites are level, very large and are on large enough rocks that no dust blows around. Though this park is largely park models, there is a large RV section at the back. Security is tight with someone at the front gate 24-7. There is a large pool and two hot tub pools. There is a large central office with a library, kitchen, lounge, kitchen, large dining area and pool room. It is very nicely landscaped and maintained. Activities are offered. We'd definitely come back. - swike
