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

Stayed over night. Prices to high, paid more for a pull through, would not ive me a discount. Would stay there again because it is close to interstate I-10. - retiredblade

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

This was our second week long stay at Catalina. The setting is superb, the rangers friendly, and, while you feel as though you are out in the desert, Wal-Mart and restaurants are just across the highway. Restrooms and showers are modern and kept very clean. Sites are paved, level, and long. Plenty of room for the coach (36') and toad. Sites are well separated and have easily accessible utilities. While there is no sewer, there is an dump station nearby. Plenty of hiking right from the park. - starwind

We heard and read so many good things about this AZ state park, we were really looking forward to our stay. Unfortunately we were a bit disappointed. Don't get me wrong, this is a very decent park with some great views, but it is older and not as well maintained/cleaned as well as some of the other AZ state parks we have stayed in. Sites are mostly level with decent spacing between them, some pull through, some back in, most big rig friendly. No sewer hookups, but two dump stations on site. Some nice hiking trails in the park, but they do get pretty crowded on weekends and holidays. A few other trails in the park which do not show up on the park map are much less used and more natural. Most trails dog friendly, but no dogs allowed in the bighorn sheep area. Great location, close to Tucson with plenty of touristy things to do. Very close to shopping and restaurants. My biggest complaint is that there are no speed bumps and too many people drive fast through the campground. A big plus (for us), no fires allowed. We'll stay here again when in the area next time. - Jerry and Betsy

Sites we a little tight but utilities worked good. We did hear one train but that was it for noise. Staff was very friendly and helpful. I would stay here again. - RayN
Oct 2015 - $28.00
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
May 2015 - $30.00
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 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

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

This is our 3rd winter here. We stay Nov thru March. A 50-amp site is $595 per month. The staff is very friendly, accommodating and extremely knowledgeable of the activities and attractions in the Tucson area. The park provides a seemingly endless list of entertainment and social activities, and organizes many hobby/interest oriented groups. The park is very dog friendly. - tweymouth

Ten months on the road, and this is one of the coolest parks we've been in. It's a large park, but instead of rigs all in a line like most places, the interior roads twist and turn all over the place and there are sites stuck in all sorts of corners and crannies. Most are pretty close together, but the way it's set up it doesn't feel that way to me. There's lots of beautiful Sonoran desert landscaping all around, and hiking trails just out behind the park. There is only one area of the park that runs along the road. We were there the first night and it was a bit noisy so I would try to avoid that if possible. This place is a great value and very popular with snowbirds so reservations are HIGHLY recommended. We were lucky to get in without them. There are all sorts of activities every day if you are into that sort of thing, and lots of amenities, pool, hot tub, library, craft center, etc. It is a bit of a drive to town, though.
There are three laundries, one "main" restroom/shower building and several others scattered about. The ones I saw were all spotless. The one I used in the "TV lounge" is a totally private room, all tile, really nice, good pressure and lots of hot water. The laundry room I used had six of each. $1.50 per load of wash in good size machines and $1.25 for 50 minutes on the dryers. You can use quarters, but there's no change machine, BUT it takes credit cards and if you use a card you can choose as little as 10 minutes on the dryers which is great if a few things are still damp. Big folding table too.
There are two dog runs also, one for the little guys and another for any size that has a bunch of plastic play structures to make an "agility course" of sorts. Lots of fun for the pup. I probably would've given this place a 10 except their wi-fi was pretty much worthless. Good Verizon coverage though. No cable either which I found surprising. I would/will definitely stay again. - Pdxjoanne

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

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

Absolutely beautiful RV resort 10 miles north of Interstate10. So NO hiway noise and NO railroad noise. The park feels private and secluded yet is just minutes away from anything you could want in terms of shopping and restaurants. Paved laneways. Premium site offers concrete slab for the RV and patio with lovely mosaic topped table and benches. A tree shades each site. Very good full hookup utilities with cable TV and very very good WiFi. The entire park is beautifully landscaped with Arizona greenery. Remainder of the site is small pea gravel. Sites are quite close to each other and back up to another coach, rv or park model. Everything is meticulously maintained and beautiful. Resort is located at the base of mountains and the air is so clear you actually feel as though you can reach out and touch the mountains. Beautiful long, fenced dog runs are available on two sides of the park. The outdoor pool is heated salt water as is the large spa. It is a beautiful pool area with plenty of tables and chairs both in the shade and in full sun. There is a small mini golf course and ping pong table. Plus a fully equipped workshop for silversmithing, stain glass and fused glass and a rock workshop. The activities director works hard to have something to do for everyone - all day long and in the evening. Pot luck dinners, movie night and much more. The staff and RVers were all warm and very friendly. We loved this park and cannot wait to go back. - JanneC
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

This is an absolutely gorgeous, quiet county park. The sites are gravel and I think most would require a bit of leveling. They differ widely in length and width but many appear to be usable by big rigs and there are some pull thrus. All sites have electric and there are numerous water spigots situated around the campground. If you pick a site close to one you can use it to fill your tank but you are not allowed to hook up to it. There are no sewers but they do have a dump station. No showers either, but the restrooms were spotless and modern. The Sonoran desert scenery around the camp is beautiful and there were lots of birds. Coyotes too, though, so keep the pups close by! There is a hiking trail off of "A" loop that connects to the trails in Tucson Mountain Park (but no dogs allowed. Bummer!) There are no reservations, but on a Saturday in January there were plenty of open spaces to choose from. There is a seven day limit. No wi-fi, of course, but I got enough service on Verizon to be able to use data. We will most definitely be back if we are in the Tucson area. - Pdxjoanne

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

This is our fourth time staying at this park. We love the spacious sites and proximity to Tucson Mountain Park. You must be self-contained as there are no washrooms or showers. Laundry facilities ore OK but we preferred to go to Thrifty Wash because of more table space for folding clothes. Lots of good hiking. Christine is particularly helpful. Propane is delivered to site. The grounds are beautifully maintained. No picnic tables. - rvbravo2

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

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

We had planned to stay in Tucson for 3 nights, however we arrived at the park with a broken windshield in our motorhome. We called the insurance company as soon as we noticed the crack (Sunday); received a CSR response on Monday. Short story, on Christmas Eve (11 days later) the installers arrived with the windshield and had it installed in short order. During our unscheduled stay, the staff and volunteers at Mission View were so helpful and worked with us on a daily basis to extend our stay and make our visit a nice one. We found the park on RV Park Reviews and are so happy we stayed there. Nice, large lot with paved patio and picnic table, and convenient to many attractions. Definitely recommend and would enjoy staying in this park for a season. - Happy Journeys
Dec 2015 - $35.00
Nice wide gravel back-in sites with concrete patio, paved area for parking toad and bright night light right at door for front door motorhomes. No fenced dog park but overall pet friendly. Friendly campers with activities. Paved roads, clean gravel and concrete patio contributed to great cleanliness. Private bathrooms with sink, shower and toilet. Nice indoor pool and spa. Good wifi. There is cable but over-the-air seemed to have as many or more channels. Quiet within the park with security patrol during the night but some aircraft noise during the day. Back-ins are 90 degrees to the road and space between patio and sewer connection is fairly tight. Escort is concerned about sewer connect so can have you rub tires on patio if you don't have another guide on passenger side. It was in the 20's at night when we stayed there and bathroom interiors were pretty cool. Finding a nice, reasonably priced, pet friendly rv park during the winter in Tucson for a short stop over seemed to be a challenge but this park fit the bill. Rate was with Passport America. - Markk

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 - $34.00
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

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
Mar 2014 - $31.00
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

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
Jan 2016 - $55.00
This is a very nice park, with very nice people. Unsure of exactly how many sites they have...but it is a BUNCH. Lots or park model homes. Lots of activities. Used one of the 3 laundries and it was clean and had plenty of coin operated machines. A lot of the folks we met, spend the winter here and have been coming for a decade or more.

Have spent the month of January here and love it. Sites are very spacious. Staff is friendly and helpful. Very well maintained park full of friendly people.
We plan to return next year! - nludwig

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

As they say in real estate: Location, Location, Location. This is a small, urban campground with eighteen back in sites (ranging from 30-50') surrounding five 70' sights. This small campground also has an office, clubhouse and small (wading) pool. We stayed here because we don't tow and like to be near public transportation. Surrounded by restaurants and only 6 blocks from public transit, this park delivered exactly what we needed. The campground hosts are work campers that are dedicated to making your stay very enjoyable. They even offer a complimentary movie Saturday nights in the clubhouse with free beer and snacks. Since this campground is only 6 months old, everything is spotless. - Ncw

This is an inner city campground of 30 sites. It's new and as it was once a service lot it's mainly asphalt and gravel surrounded by fences but with a small tree and a picnic table at each site. The people that run it are helpful and really try.
The down side is only one washer and one dryer and the very poor internet. We were told that due to all the surrounding businesses and condo there is a lot of interference even with boosters. Perhaps seek your own service.
All in all a good location. Walking distance to stores. We will use again. - Grums

This is a small, new park about a mile and a half from downtown Tucson just west of I-10. It only has 23 sites one of which is occupied by the camp host. It is located in an old residential area surrounded by apts, homes and a park. If you are looking for a large grassy spot with trees and a big view of mother nature this is not the park for you. However, if you are looking for a good campsite, close to downtown activities, managed by some really great people than this is the place. - DennisA

We stayed for only one night and our stay at South Forty was fine. The wi-fi worked for the most part (in fits and starts). No cable, unless you plan on being there longer - then ComCast (as of this writing) can hook you right up. I checked out a bathroom and shower area and except for the very strong disinfectant smell, it was clean and usable. This is an older park and the first place where we were asked to unhook our toad, as the turns were sharper than we were used to. Overall it was fine. I think I can see the appeal for snowbirds and long-term residents when I poked around the main office area - there was a real poker room with several tables, a fairly large library and several puzzle boards. In another area, there was exercise equipment and the morning we were leaving, a small group of ladies were exercising. It's clear that there are a nice selection of activities to be had. The front desk staff was also superb - helpful and honest (saying the internet wasn't the best, when in fact, it wasn't too bad.) The hot tub was pretty popular and had we been staying longer, we would have tried both the pool and hot tub, too. The only negative was the location - it's north of the City and away from the action and in a not terribly nice location. It's not a ranch, nor a resort, but definitely a good, older park. And yes, 55+ really means - most of the longer term folks are 70+. - Ellistea

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

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
Sep 2014 - $19.00
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
Jun 2014 - $19.00
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

We love this park. It it was our first stay and we actually stayed longer than planned. The park is immaculate! Friendly/helpful staff. Loved the fruit trees at each rv site. Only thing that needs improvement is the wifi. In the evenings it was difficult to log on or got kicked off. We plan to go back next year and stay a month. - di0215

beautiful resort park, paved pads with concrete picnic table, next door to Lazy Days RV service center. Appears that this is winter spot for many RVer's and it is a good choice with many activities and close to shopping,etc. A little pricey for a one night stop but very nice and we will stop on our way back home. - bg3putts

We spent 2 1/2 weeks here in January and our only regret is we didn't stay longer. We shy away from KOAs... but not this one. It's a great long term RV Resort. The sites are gravel for your RV but there's a nice patio and every site has an asphalt parking spot for your other vehicle. We stay in a deluxe pull thru and these include grass and shrubs to better separate your space. We had a large Olive tree in our space that gave us some shade.
There are two sections of cover spaces - which may sound odd - but the "coverings" are hundreds (thousands?) of solar panels and they are probably 40 or more feet above the ground. There are some openings for some light to get through and the whole arrangement is very attractive. The only issue I could see is that it could be hard to get Satellite reception depending on your rooftop dish location.
Great facilities, super clean and well tended sites, nice people and all around a great place to stay.
One more thing - FREE Citrus! Lemons, Oranges and Grapefruit EVERYWHERE. Free for the picking. At the farmer's market we saw fresh Grapefruit selling for $3 each - but we picked about 1 dozen or more during our stay for free. Everything was ripe, fresh, and delicious. The front desk encourages picking the fruit and folks walk around with a plastic bag and "shop" to their hearts content. - Creativepart

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

This was our second stay at this park. The short-term parking is in a gravel field but the park has pull-thru sites with concrete patios. The park has lots of services, activities including 3 pools and an on-site hotel. The hotel is a good services if you are there for the winter and want a place for friends and family to stay when they visit. - mountainfan

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

Western Way is a little southwest of Tucson in an area called Tucson Estates adjacent to Tucson Mountain Park and a short distance from the Saguaro National Park (Western portion). Like so many 55+ parks in Arizona it has a mix of park models and RV sites. We had a back-in site which was mostly level, gravel with a concrete patio and a grapefruit tree. They have good facilities with heated pool and clubhouse. The park is clean and the staff were very accommodating. The Wi-Fi worked well and restrooms were generally clean and well maintained. Rate based upon a weekly rate. - Coopsecondact

This Park is beautifully maintained, friendly staff and seasonal visitors. Gorgeous views of the Tucson Mtn. Range and near to the world class Arizona Sonora Desert Museum and Old Tucson Historical site of many western movies. The pool is pristine and there are many fun events at the Club House. - User2417

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

Noise-no whispering here-planes, train and automobiles. Sites are short for long trailers. Just a few nights stay was a good quick stop value at Passport rates. Sites are hard packed gravel so easy leveling etc. Bit of a PITA to get into with large trailer but lots of room for turning when pulling out. Very helpfully and friendly staff. Easy off and on from freeway. All in all probably would not stop again just because of 38 foot trailer length but would still recommend for shorter trailer and quick stays. - snowbirdstoday

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

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
Nov 2010 - $18.00
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
