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
Nice park, secluded, and private. Gravel pull-thru with full hookups and adequate space, both in length and width. Picnic table at site. We were near the restrooms/showers/laundry room. Ladies' room clean with two toilet stalls and two shower stalls plus sink counter. A bit of a tight fit between toilet area and sinks and you must walk past this area to use the showers. Old, but clean. Husband said same about Men's area. Didn't use laundry facilities so can't comment. People in office friendly and helpful. Other campers friendly also. I wasn't able to use the park shower as they were doing some work and turned off the water, but when I peeked in I saw that it was clean, although old and obviously well used. We would definitely stay here again. - Cbundy02
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
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
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
You will not find a better state park anyplace - simple as that. Huge sites, spotless restrooms, very well maintained in total. - AZSwede
Catalina State Park is located about 30 minutes north of the city but is located in Oro Valley which has everything you need without going into the city. The state park only allows 14 night stays and they don't have sewer but there are dump stations located at the entrance of Campground B and at the exit to the park. There are restrooms and showers available. They are clean and I never had to wait for a shower. The shower/changing rooms are large with plenty of space for your things. I did have to keep the water all the way to hot for it to be warm enough and the water pressure was a little low. No wifi at the campground. ATT and Verizon signal was pretty good but did drop from LTE to 4G a few times.
No trains, no planes, no traffic noise, the campground is extremely peaceful. The mountain views are beautiful. Campground is huge and has lots of great areas to walk the dogs.
Everyone is friendly, the campground hosts are always available, and there is a board of all the various activities like hikes, runs, star parties, and demonstrations scheduled located at the restroom entrance. We called in advance and were told we cannot receive any packages or mail at this park.
We would definitely stay here again. - LifeRebooted
First off, we don't normally give "10s" in reviews, but Catalina State Park would not be adequately served with anything less. We stayed 6 nights in Campground B, with electric and water. Sites have a gorgeous view of the Catalina Mountains; staff is exceptionally friendly; restrooms and showers are large and very clean. This park is a gem 20 miles north of Tucson. We will stay here again when in the area. Big rigs are an easy accommodation. - Pamnken
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
An older but suitable park; gravel drives and pads (what isn't gravel in this part of the country). It was very quiet, no train tracks or highway noise. Our pull-thru site was nice and wide and plenty long. - TeamNewMexico
The park is in a deteriorated part of town and near a neighborhood that is right across the street. There is no security and the area where we parked on the right side of the property is open without a fence or wall. Some of the spots do not have sewer and only 30 amp service. Gravel throughout the park. Fine for an overnight, this is not a park that offers much, but was quiet and in the area of two truckstop at the highway exit. Manager was very accommodating and friendly. - wolffden
Tucson, Arizona (520) 325-3642
Sites: 20 | Latest Rate: $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
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
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
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
I called to make reservations and was told there was a $30/per person credit application charge for anyone staying one month or longer because they had an felon in the park. Not only do I resent the $60 for the credit checks, but every credit check is a negative reflection on my credit report, and I have excellent credit. This is a warning to anyone who is considering staying at this park for one month or more. - babe
Rate is monthly for 30 amp. We are just finishing our 6th winter at Desert Trails and have reservations for the same site next winter. We like this park very much, friendly owners, friendly residents, lots of activities and great hiking opportunities. As noted by previous comments, the WiFI used to be iffy at times. Since a crises with the provider early in the year it has improved considerably. Now that they limit usage to two registered devices per site the WiFi is dependable and reasonably fast. - Dennis M
Internal roads are paved & gravel, sites are level and are generally very small, facilities worked well but are located at the rear of the site ( I needed 30 feet of sewer hose), site was satellite friendly. Staff were very friendly. The park WiFi worked very poorly, they have recently had some issues and so you have to give them the MAC address of all the devices you want to connect to their WiFi. It's best if you have your own internet solution. T-Mobile cell service was just OK. The park was quiet. The rate is the monthly rate. The desert trails are fantastic. We may stay here again. - KDSpree
Camped there for two weeks . They have a lot to offer anyone staying there. They try very hard to have activities. There are many people that return every winter. I found everyone to be friendly and helpful. Wifi sucks at times, but seems to be the case in most parks I stayed at . Some of the sites are small. I would stay again, no problem. - william1996
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
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
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
This is a 55+ campground but more accurately is really 70 to 99 age group and yes, there is a 99 year old resident! Very well organized with plenty of activities for the long term resident. Everything is kept immaculately clean and staff is all very helpful and pleasant. There are more park models than RV spaces so be sure to call ahead during the busy season. We stayed in a patio site which was nice compared to the basic site with no table. When the park is full expect to be in very close contact with your camp neighbours, the good side to that is everyone we met was very friendly. The heated pool was the warmest we've ever experienced. The location is close to shopping but expect traffic noise, especially sirens every day and throughout the night. The campground is gated overnight and we felt safe at all times. The rate was pretty steep for a short stay even after the Good Sam discount but it covered a lot of activities we didn't take advantage of. - theswedes
Previous comments are correct. I would return to this campground if in the area again. Also, it's the first campground I've been to that you can use the free Wi-Fi at full speed without any problems. Try and find some another place like that! - JB FTL
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
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
We checked in and you have to pay with check or cash, no discounts in February. We went to our site number 19 and it was a site they squeezed in at the end of the row. It was small with bushes, electrical panels, and a 3 ft pipe sticking out of the ground. We went back told her we wanted another site. She tried to talk me into staying at that site but was nice about it and gave me another site. The sites are on large stones that are difficult to walk on but the sites are large in size with enough room to park your truck in between your RV and the next site. They advertise fast WiFi at your site but don't count on using it at all. I went to the office and asked if their WiFi was working and I was told everybody was down loading movies and Skyping that why I couldn't get on. The next morning I was up at 5:00 and tried the WiFi and still no internet. There are no restrooms or showers available. The laundry area was very dirty. - jhav
We stayed here in a pull through site. The Tucson Mineral and Gem show was on so campgrounds were very full. There is a weekly rate. Utilities were ok except for sewer in our row. Neighbor next door experienced a flood under his coach because the owner tried to have the sewer opened by blowing it out and did not inform any of the occupants in the row to disconnect. They continued to have problems with it while we were there. We kept our black and grey tanks closed except when dumping to be safe. There is a fair amount of road noise all night and the location is quite a distance outside of Tucson and major attractions. We gave a poor rating because of the sewer, the problem was serious and not fixed right away. People were living with leakage on the ground and odor the entire time (10 days) we were there. Over 38 ft they charge extra and still request no electric heaters or dryers.?? - roamnoldies
We went to this park just after departing Gilbert Ray Campground, so I am probably too critical, but we had expected much more than we found. The lady that we dealt with was very nice and accommodating, I believe she is one of the owners. The park was fairly full when we arrived, but there were spaces available. The spaces are pretty close together and are gravel with very large gravel, so much so that it was difficult to walk on it. The hookups were a long ways away, so you will need long cords and hoses. The electrical power was strong, but you are requested not to use your electric heaters. Really? The WiFi was so slow as to be essentially nonexistent. Our Verizon phone and data worked very well. We had planned on doing our laundry, but there are only a few washers and driers and they were always full, so we had to go to a nearby commercial laundry. We had expected quiet at night but there was a lot of traffic noise at night. It would have been dark, but many of the residents had put up lights under their RVs which made it bright at night. It is too bad that folks do this, but they had. We were able to get satellite, but some sites would not be able to see the satellite because of some small trees. I guess the rate was right, but we would likely try someplace else next time. - TheJim
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
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. - Denise Kirk
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 one night while touring Tucson. Its close to the attractions in the southern and western part of the town. Many seasonal and full time park models. Large sites and good space between sites. Staff was friendly. Accepts cash or check; no credit cards. - Jdawg
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
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
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
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
Nice place. They finished the construction on Interstate 10 and it's now easy on and off to the park. Being close to the freeway, we heard no road noise. Restrooms were clean. - farrah2
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
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
Old park full of park models. Hard to get around in with big rigs. Way overpriced for what it is and the Wi-Fi is a total joke. If you need Wi-Fi don't stop, even though they tell you it works. Have stayed here in the past but after this recent stay never again. - Baby boomer 64
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
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
The park is well maintained and has many activities and clubs. It is in a good location (close to downtown, the Desert Museum, etc.). However, park security has become a serious problem this year with a large number of bicycle thefts (39 recorded with and estimated total of 50 to 60). Park management has done nothing of consequence to increase park security even though the county sheriff has identified the park as being one of the worst locations in Tucson for bike thefts. Be warned that if you stay here and have a bike you need to lock it up using hardened chains and U-locks. We are reconsidering staying here next year because we are beginning to not feel safe. - geno-47
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
Clean park, good book swap BUT no free internet. 21 cents per minute. Trains nearby kept us awake. - mez
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
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
The rate is based on a monthly stay and this park has the best monthly rate in town. I have been here three weeks and after my month is up plan on staying several more days. The park is easy access off I-10 and easy access back on. It is clean and quiet, management is friendly and helpful and always seem to be available. WiFi is free and most of the time it is excellent. The entire area is gravel and sites are level and easy to pull through and the hookups are easy to access. The layout of the spaces in the center is a bit odd; sorta looks like circling the wagons. Not a quibble, just an observation. The spaces each have a picnic table. While I have not used the restrooms nor the showers, I see staff in there frequently cleaning them so I will assume they are clean and maintained. The dog walk area is in an empty field just beyond the fence along the west side of the park and there are gates for access. My only complaint here is that people do not clean up after their dog and the place is a mine field of dog droppings. I wish management provided bags and a trash can and perhaps people will be more inclined to do what they ought to be doing anyway--clean up after their pet. I just walk my dog elsewhere near the park. There are many song birds here which is a real treat for me. Someone wrote another review and said there is odor from a sewage treatment plant. Down the road is the university agricultural school feedlot. Once in awhile if the wind blows a certain way there is a noticeable but not strong odor. It has not affected my enjoyment of this place. There is no sewage treatment odor. They have a nice clean swimming pool here but I have not been able to access it as the gate is locked. Management says the water is still too cold--this guest from colder climes would like to be the judge of that. Because of the freeway construction, access to shopping, which is not particularly close in any case, is more difficult. Getting to the major shopping areas is not a very lengthy trip but getting back is. Will be better when Prince Rd opens up--manager tells me it will be in May. I just plan to do several errands at once and get it all over with. At least all the shopping you need to do plus the fuel, post office and banking (and more) is all in one area west of the park. All that being said, this place is a pleasant place to stay and I plan on returning next winter. - nanzhere
The facilities are clean and well maintained; however, it is way overpriced as compared to snowbird park communities in Arizona. This place is huge. The check-in consisted of handing us a map with the WiFi code and our site highlighted. There was no other information about facilities, hours of operation or list of rules. At least is was quick. Guard gates at both entrances are not manned except for early evening when the office is closed. The park is wide open to anyone. Lots of fruits trees, some of which need trimming. Campsite was gravel, large and clean. Utilities were good although you may need a sewer hose extension. For the first time in several years we found a park with a somewhat usable WiFi connection. Was reasonably stable and ran fast enough especially early in the morning. At other times, usually in the evenings, it was useless. Daily trash pickup on your site. Many street lights were burned out. Park was dark at night. Staff is friendly and speak to you. It is a busy in and out park with some people staying for longer periods. Since it is for the most part transient, guests were not as engaging as those in some snowbird parks. The dog park is actually a retention basin in one corner of the park. Can be a very long walk if you are in the opposite end of the park. Although it is large and grassy, after a rain, it is more suitable for pet ducks. There are numerous bag locations around the park, but many guests seem not to use them. Lots of poop on grassy areas and in the dog park. Guess they figure they are only here for short term. This is not our first time in Tucson. Thought we would try this park on recommendation of others. Probably a great place for families. Won't consider staying here again unless it is for one night just passing through on I-10. Just not our cup of tea. - Thunder Mountain
Park is clean and well kept. Sites are large and paved. Lazydays RV dealership is onsite. They upgraded wifi system while we were there which greatly improved performance. Wifi was very good most of the time. They have onsite trash pickup. There is a restaurant onsite with decent food which is great after a long day of sightseeing. Would definitely stay here again! - Longhorn Fan
This a big park, spacious sites, landscaped well, fruit trees abound for guest picking, and staff are very friendly and helpful. - Mike1987
Rate reflects monthly rate plus electric. Park has superb facilities, abundant activities, very clean and well maintained, very friendly and efficient staff, quiet and comfortable. This is the friendliest park we have ever stayed. Everyone, and I mean everyone, greets and visits with one another - whether you are a stranger or not. We visited other parks while in Tucson and almost felt invisible. Voyager puts them to shame. We normally don't need much social interaction but we missed getting a greeting or wave at other places. Many park models but also plenty of temp rv slots. Depending on slot location a quick overnight could be a tight squeeze and not worth it. Appears to be geared toward longer stays due to amount of activities within the park. Park is divided into pet and non-pet so be sure you are assigned appropriately. Our purpose for the month was to see Tucson and its surroundings. Voyager is a long ways from hiking, shopping, restaurants, recreation, and attractions. 8-20 miles for just about anything. But there is more than enough to do within the park. Be sure to get all the rate details. Golf is not included in the park. $9 for nine holes is steep considering how short the course is. Upon checkout we discovered there was a non-refundable fee for elec hookup and a couple of other smaller non-disclosed items. Would definitely use this park again if our activities do not require traveling outside the park very much. - durham4926
One of the best rv resorts I have been to. Nice level sites with 50 amp service. Back in sites are tight for large rigs, but pull thru sites are available. Many great amenities, many activities. Great place for a few days or a few months. - west virginia traveler
We've stayed here before and weren't impressed, but for a quick convenient two-night stop, thought we'd try again. We called several days early for a reservation. When we arrived, they had reserved the wrong dates for us, showing that we were three days early. Half an hour later, after sitting in a surly clerk's office while they found us another spot, we went back to our RV to wait for the parking staff to take us to the spot. When they did, it was still occupied so we had to wait on the street while they found us another one. Twenty minutes later, we were directed to a long pull through spot with a four-foot wide sidewalk beside it. This was our entire patio. If our neighbors had a slide on this side, my husband could have reached across and touched both rigs. No wifi, shaky cable, no landscaping at all (just gravel and the sidewalk) and ridiculously narrow sites. We walked over to the laundry and found that the card machine had a hand printed sign saying that the payment card machine was out of cards and we would have to trot over to the other laundry. Not what I think of when I hear "luxury RV park". Clearly the traveling RVer is not their target market. They want our money; they just don't seem to want our business. We won't be back. - Vancouver Island Rainbirds
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
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
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
When we arrived at 2pm the office was closed until 3pm. When we were assigned sites(was caravaning with a friend) one of the sites was occupied by someone's trailer and motorcycle. The other site was next to someone with two yapping dogs fenced in outside their old trailer. Found this park to be full of not well maintained permanent trailers; dogs running loose or tied up outside and someone working on a vehicle. The sites were small and backin and difficult to get into. Would not recommend or stay here. We got our money back and went on down the road. Had car campers and tenters all over the place by the office. - retiredhappy
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
This is a 55+ mobile home community with an RV park in the rear. Very well maintained. - AJ and JJ
