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
We love this park for the setting. The site was very large, level with a picnic table and shade. The restrooms are the cleanest anywhere. Great bird watching. We will stay here again. - SteveFerrill
We managed to get the last available spot in the park and were a little chagrined to discover there were no hook-ups. When I called the office to inquire about potable water for our tanks, I was told there was water at the dump station but when we arrived, the signs said "Do Not Drink" so we didn't and couldn't locate any spigots close the road (even though we were told there were many). We ended up filling up from an empty campsite.
Our site, A-8, was a very nice pull-thru but was "backwards," i.e. the one-way street had us going the wrong way so our awning and door opened to the street. We ended up coming back the wrong-way so we could put out the awning and were promptly told by the host we had come in the wrong way but too late, we stayed. I noticed a number of other "wrong-way" sites with campers obviously doing the same thing we did.
After all that, turned out to be a beautiful site with a lovely view of the mountains (sunrises and sunsets were stunning). We were by the horse trail but it wasn't a problem and we had one neighbor within site. We missed having electricity but water and electrical hook-ups are available in loop B (also be forewarned those sites are closer together without much vegetation between them) and one part of the A loop (a much nicer loop with trees and bushes between sites).
Bathrooms were clean and large but the hand held shower head didn't stay where it should and sprayed the wall or the shower curtain and I ended up having to hold it during the entire shower, but it the water was hot.
Others have mentioned the huge new shopping center directly across the street from the entrance, and while it distracts from the "wilderness" experience, was pretty handy for the Wal-Mart and restaurants (especially In-n-Out Burger!).
A beautiful campground with lots to do in the vicinity, but make sure have reservations beforehand as the overflow campground is pretty dismal. - berrycat
You will not find a better state park anyplace - simple as that. Huge sites, spotless restrooms, very well maintained in total. - AZSwede
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
Off the beaten path about 12 miles outside of town. Highway to the park is in rough shape, but once you get to the park it seems worth it. Very serene setting. Park is very well maintained and manicured, sites are gravel but very level. Not much shade but tons of plant life...cactus, wild life... Just a beautiful setting. Limited WiFi and no grass for pets, only gravel which is why a 9 instead of a 10, but it is desert after all. - EggerMar
A large, quirky park on the site of a defunct water amusement park. Place caters to snowbirds who rent for the season, and short-term RV'ers. Very friendly owners and campers. Few or no permanent residents that we could see. Great location on the literal edge of Tucson Mountain State Park, with miles of beautiful desert hiking at your doorstep. WiFi so-so, ATT 4G data connection was good. Nice clean bathrooms with good showers (stalls are a bit narrow) and plenty of hot water. Bonus points for paper towels in bathrooms. Very good laundry facility. In the country several miles from south Tucson, nothing within walking distance. Very quiet! Book exchange library and a selection of DVD's on the honor system. - Lost
My husband and I are full time RV'rs and have stayed in many RV parks throughout the western states and Canada.
Desert Trails is truly an outstanding experience not to be missed!
We just completed a five month stay and will be returning next season for another five.
The owner and his staff have amazing talents and skills that make a huge difference in the quality of one's stay.
The diversity in the activities offered is fantastic so there is something for everyone. Don't miss the dances with live bands..they're a blast!
The beautiful sonoran desert with it's lovely cactus and lots of wildlife is all around you and in just a few steps you'll be out there walking, hiking or mountain biking to your hearts content.
The clientele here is extremely friendly and love to have fun!
The park itself is funky with good amenities that are constantly being improved. The owner is very considerate of one's needs and makes every effort to accommodate you.
Need I say more?
Come.....you will love it! - freewheelingRVer
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
I stayed in a premium desert view site in back. Most people there return every winter. and its quiet with trail access to the desert bordering Tucson Mountain Park. Most sites are level with pea stone and larger stone. Unfortunately mine was higher in the back then the front which would have been ok except the hook ups were on the wrong side.
Laundry could have been cleaner.
WiFi is like a lot of parks, hit or miss.
Atmosphere is casual and fun.
Some planned activities. No pool, restrooms or showers.
My rate was monthly at $585 Rate is cheaper for other sites but the ones close to the road are of course more noisy.
Campgrounds in Tucson are pricey so its still a good deal.
I would come back. - apackof2
Interior roads are paved, sites are level and are fairly spacious. Facilities worked well. Site was satellite friendly. Staff were friendly, park Wi-Fi does not work (bring your own solution), T-Mobile cell/data service was good. The sites at the back of the park are quiet; we had a premium site. I would have rated it higher if the Wi-Fi worked. We would stay here again. - KDSpree
We stayed a month in a premium site that was very large, roughly 70x30'. This is a very nice park, but with a few quirks: no restrooms or showers, and a $2 per night premium for coaches over 37'.
The park is several miles west of Tucson, making it both quiet and handy to all of the city services. Maybe the best thing about the location is that it adjoins hundreds of acres of desert with miles of trails. The dogs especially loved it. - bobcovey
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
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
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
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
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
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
This is a small park and is overwhelmed by winter visitors. The utilities did not handle all the traffic. For the first two weeks I did not have enough power to run my microwave. As visitors left and I was moved to a 50A site, the power improved to adequate, barely. This is probably the lowest priced park in Tucson and it is obvious no money is put back into the park.
The rate listed here is based on a monthly rate incl. electricity. Management is very nice and tries to be as helpful as possible with what they have to offer.
Surprisingly, the traffic noise from the nearby I-10 freeway was not an issue. Just so you know, this park is located in the northern section of Tucson and a long way from the Fairgrounds where most of the special activities like rallies occur. - Margo Armstrong
The rate reflects the Passport America discount. Campground was clear of weeds etc. Gravel roads and spaces with a picnic table. Registration staff friendly and helpful. We were escorted to our site. Did not use laundry, pool, wash rooms. Park is within a short drive to Tucson Mall and many major chain restaurants. My only concern was the 108 degree temperature and low electrical voltage, could only run one AC unit. - Outwest63
Rate was for Passport America. Okay park, a two night stay to get caught up on shopping and laundry. Managers were friendly and helpful. We had one of the first sites as you pull into park. Site was level gravel, but not a lot of room between sites. Wife was okay with laundry, but wished it would have had AC, with the high temps. The temperature was in the high 90's, so we ran both AC's a lot and voltage was steady. Would probably stay here again. - JJ & CC
Very nice KOA campground in a busy part of South Tucson. Very clean, good service. We stayed there with an RV Club but did not get to use any room facilities. They lock the gate off E Irvington at 6:00pm and there is a phone number for security, but you have to drive around and enter via S Country Club. Airport and train noises are problematic, but that's why I gave it a 9. Some kids were zipping around in peddle go-carts and I almost ran over one, or rather he almost ran into my truck as he was zipping out from parked vehicles. - wfgk
Nice Park just outside of Tucson. Formerly owned and run by Lazydays now owned by KOA. Nicely laid out park with some really nice premium sites with grass. Pool and jacuzzi very nice. Good workout room. Restaurant and bar are a nice bonus. Plenty of orange, lemon and grapefruit trees to pick. - Jones714
One of the nicer trailer parks we've stayed at and definitely the best one in south Tucson. All the sites are nicely laid out with plenty of room to park the largest rig (saw many semis with plenty of room to spare). The deluxe sites with grass are definitely worth the extra bucks. There are plenty of fruit trees throughout the park. We had a grape fruit tree on our site. Had a sweet grape fruit almost everyday. Th pool area was very nice but can get crowded because this is a huge park with only 2 pools. The staff was extremely friendly. Garbage is picked up at your site all day until 4:00. They have a large off leash park for your 4-legged family members - one of the nicer ones we've seen. This park is not in the nicest part of town but we felt safe, the park is clean and everyone is friendly. The biggest negative about this place is the poor wifi. It is almost unusable. They do let you use their computer in the game room or you can plug in your own laptop. Overall, excellent park. Very highly recommended if you're in the Tucson area. - bakermancoq
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
Wi-Fi doesn't work unless you are next to office. No clubhouse as advertised. Many permanent residents have trashy looking spaces. One trailer is the definition of 'trailer park trash' with Christmas lights still up. Manager is rude and unfriendly. Do NOT recommend this park. Will never return. - twerntme15
I highly recommend this park because of the excellent management - friendly, accommodating, helpful, and efficient. Laundry facilities are reasonably priced, and restrooms are spacious and clean. Easy access from major highway. Would definitely return. - sheila mal
This is a Passport America park, and for the price, it worked for us. There are quite a few long time residents here with flat tires and lots of outside things. Cable did not work, so we used the satellite and the antennae. Lots to do in Tucson, and we recommend the Desert Museum and Old Tucson. Our site is fairly level but very difficult to back into. We had been assured of a pull-through site, but it was given to someone else. We will stay here again due to the price and convenience to tour the area. - rolling homeless
The other reviews are accurate, this is one of the nicest parks we've stayed in. Everyone was friendly and included us in the park activities as if we were permanent residents. Great separate camp hosts for the RV section. Every area of this park is spotless. I checked "not" pet friendly because they only accept small dogs, and they may not be walked in the park. Designated pet areas are available, but the animal must be carried or driven there. We loved this park and have added it to our winter itinerary. Only negative is you need 20-30 feet of sewer hose to reach the connections if you park near your patio. - Westside
We really enjoyed this park. The people were friendly, the place was sparkling clean and it was close to the hiking areas in Tucson. The sites are level, very large and are on large enough rocks that no dust blows around. Though this park is largely park models, there is a large RV section at the back. Security is tight with someone at the front gate 24-7. There is a large pool and two hot tub pools. There is a large central office with a library, kitchen, lounge, kitchen, large dining area and pool room. It is very nicely landscaped and maintained. Activities are offered. We'd definitely come back. - swike
This is a 55+ mobile home community with an RV park in the rear. Very well maintained. - AJ and JJ
