Very small RV parking lot in the city. Tight turns for big rigs but doable. Very narrow, close sites and some are long enough for big rigs. Paved, level and utilities worked well. We had no problem with Wifi. Everything is clean and well maintained. As convenient to Tucson as you can get. Surprisingly traffic noise is not bad and also frequent train whistle can be heard but did not bother us. We would stay here again. We camped at Sentinel Peak RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

The park sign is on the block wall parallel with the street and not obvious when approaching so watch for the big sign for Nosotros Academy and the park is the neighbor to the north.

We stayed in a pull through which are small but very adequate. The staff is very friendly and also very helpful. They have a shuttle service if you need one and they also have a game room with pool table, ping pong table, TV lounge, and table and chairs for various activities. Not the best area of town but it is a safe place to stay. There is plenty of walking paths in the area. Great location for site seeing. Would stay here again when in the area. We camped at Sentinel Peak RV Park in a Motorhome.

Our 35 foot motor home and our 18 foot flat bed for our car fits nicely in the space we were in with extra space for our car too. The clubhouse is big enough for a large gathering with A Large TV screen, a Fooseball Table and a Pool Table. The clubhouse is very clean. The park is very immaculately maintained. As for pets we had to take our dog out of Sentinel Peak park, which we didn't mind as this gave our dog more exercise. We loved being within walking distance to the grocery stores, restaurants, department stores, and fast food. The noise from the trains never bother us from sleeping. And we never heard any traffic noises. Now to tell you about the manager and her husband. We got there 17 Nov and was planning to leave 31 December, but had to stay until 31 January due to Heath issue. We talked to the manager and were able for us to stay an extra month until my beloved were able to travel. The day we were suppose to leave our motor home was inoperable causing us to delay for 4 hours. The Manager's husband and our dear friend helped start our motor home so we could leave. The manager and our friend called us to see if we made it safely to our next destination and the answer was yes. I have never met a couple that would go the distance to help and give a courtesy call to a client. The manager and her husband are very proud of Sentinel Peak park and they do an immaculate job. Also they do every thing they can to help their clients. Thank you dear friends . We camped at Sentinel Peak RV Park in a Motorhome.

It is a RV parking lot with no grass. My site was plenty long and wide. I had a 2' x 70' lawn for my dog. You must walk your dog down the sidewalk outside of the park. Not bad, just no place for pets if they want grass. The place looks like new. Well maintained and clean. The managers are very helpful. Conveniently located inside Tucson. This would be a great place for a rally. Nice meeting room, looks new. We camped at Sentinel Peak RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

We have stayed before and will continue to come back to this great RV park. The location is outstanding and it's so close to Downtown and the University of Arizona. We did the light rail this last time and it was AWESOME! We've staying in many Tucson RV parks over the years, but this place is our first choice. It's always clean and the customer service is top notch. If you're staying in Tucson, this is the place to be. We camped at Sentinel Peak RV Park in a Motorhome.

The owner of this park lives on site, met us at the front entrance, and was very informative and helpful, a big plus! We were in this park due to its location in Tucson. It is not pretty, but for a few days it works very well. All of the utilities worked well, water pressure was good, the site was very level and our Verizon signal was strong. We would come here again. We camped at Sentinel Peak RV Park in a Motorhome.

Walled and paved but with large green park across street make this a very pet friendly stop. The on demand free shuttle during office hours was a nice bonus. Pool was small and super clean. Road runner watched us from wall. We camped at Sentinel Peak RV Park in a Travel Trailer.

Close to down town. The walk was nice. The rv park very small. They had restrooms..no shower facilities. They have a big received room..that was so hot and nobody used it..could have put In showers there. Not much of an area to walk pets. We stayed for three days. The pool was not heated. It is a clean park but very tiny. We camped at Sentinel Peak RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

As many others have said, the customer service, cleanliness, and location of this park are SUPERB. We've stayed at many RV parks in Tucson over the years and this is our new favorite. Before we checked in, we looked at all the things to do in the area and you are literally so close to everything. We came to see the Gem Show at the convention center (about 2 minutes away by car) and wound up exploring so much more. We checked out the light rail which was AWESOME. It takes you through all these neat areas of downtown and the food options are endless. They have a free shuttle too which is great if you don't have a toad, but we preferred to walk everywhere since the weather was so nice and everything was within a few blocks anyway. We camped at Sentinel Peak RV Park in a Motorhome.

This is an excellent location to visit downtown Tucson. The campground is very close to I-10 and about 6 blocks to the trolley. The trolley takes you to downtown and to the University of Arizona. There is also a shuttle service Monday thru Friday to a street car stop.

The campground has 26 sites - 2 of them were being used by work campers. There are 6 pull-thru sites that are reserved for daily and weekly customers. There pull-thru sites can accommodate any size rig. Some of the back-in sites were being used by monthly residents.

The interior road and sites were on asphalt and were relatively flat. The utilities for the pull-thru sites were in the middle and the back-in sites were located in the back. All sites have 50/30/20 amp electrical service along with sewer and water. The voltage was very good. Each site had a picnic table.

Wi-Fi was available at all sites. Verizon air card and phone reception was good.

The clubhouse consisted of a very large TV, pool table, ping pong table, tabletop soccer foosball and a small book exchange. There is 1 bathroom per gender along with 1 washer ($1.75) and 1 dryer ($1.75). There are no showers and only 1 washer and dryer due to Tucson's zoning laws. There is also a very small clean pool.

There was some road noise along with train whistles throughout the night. Being within a city, this is to be expected.

We would definitely come back to this park. We have a 32 foot 5th wheel. We camped at Sentinel Peak RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

I find this park hard to rate - it's an excellent location, the customer service is superb, and the weekly rate is reasonable for the location. The park is in great condition, and they expend a lot of effort keeping it that way. With that being said, it's really just a small parking lot near downtown Tucson. It's not right off the interstate, but was still pretty noisy. The sites are somewhat close together, but there is plenty of room for slides on both sides. Parking of tow/towed vehicles is very tight. There was wifi, but it was broken for four days of my stay, and they could not fix it. On the one night that the park was full to capacity, my electric heater would not operate. It was fine after the park thinned out again, so it may have been an electrical issue with the park being so full. Still, I can't say enough about how great the customer service was. The location is fantastic for getting around Tucson, and very close to downtown and the University area. Cell service is great. We camped at Sentinel Peak RV Park in a Motorhome.

Stayed here for 4 days in a pull through site, checking to see if this would be a good option for a longer stay next winter. Basically a paved lot with tight sites and a pole shed building with an office, restrooms, and small laundry room. No showers. Park rules are not enforced, barking dogs were left unattended all day in several trailers and no enforcement of quiet hours. Had to clean up cigarette butts and other debris left on our site. Lots of night noise from trains, traffic, and nearby apartments. Would not stay here again. We camped at Sentinel Peak RV Park in a Motorhome.

We selected this park because of the proximity to the attractions we wanted to see. The hosts were warm & welcoming, doing their best to make sure our experience in their city/area was positive. The space was easy to get into, and had ample room for our tow car as well. Our overall experience was very positive and we would not only return, but bring friends with us as well!!!

TIS in downtown and convenient to what anyone could want or need. It was quiet, exceptionally clean, and has new asphalt covering as of April 28, 2016. It is located in what appears to be a nice neighborhood (no train whistles, etc.).

The laundry room is air conditioned and there is a game room. They require jack pads, but loan them to you from the office at no charge.

This is a small park (23 total sites). The sites are tight, their WiFi is satellite so it's poor (typical for campgrounds); however, even our own Wifi could only get slow 3G in this area. There are no showers (restroom only) and no Cable. The pool is a shallow "splash" pool.

Again, this RV park offers convenience with electric, water and sewer with a DOWNTOWN location. We camped at Sentinel Peak RV Park in a Motorhome.

This was a tough one for us to rate. As others have said, the location is the main draw for this new RV Park, being very close to downtown Tucson. The downside of being downtown is that the park is little more than a paved RV parking lot with a very thin strip of gravel between each site (check the Google satellite view for details). The RV park was very clean and the camp hosts were friendly and helpful. The price (weekly rate) was good for a downtown park, but the free WiFi is satellite-based and was unusably slow. The city park across the street and down a block (Menlo Park) was a great place to walk our dog each day, since the RV park is tiny and mostly paved. If you want to be close to Tucson and are OK with tight quarters, Sentinel Peak provides a good compromise between location, price, and site/amenities. We camped at Sentinel Peak RV Park in a Motorhome.
