First, I would like to say that we have stayed here several times. The good: nice waterfront sites, great area for biking, surfing, paddling, fishing etc.. The weather is also really nice here all winter. The bad: the sites are not well marked and it is possible to show up with someone else using part of your site. With very little (I mean no) management, it can be noisy, especially on weekends. The restrooms and showers are the dirtiest I've seen and I've traveled from the east coast to the west coast 4 times. The newer restroom has no water pressure and the older restroom had a piece of soap on the floor that was there for the two weeks that we were. The campsites I don't believe have ever been cleaned by the staff and you will find lots of remnants when you first get to your site. We do love the area and most of the campers are very friendly. As long as you can overlook some of the issues, you will like this campground.
Very interesting and funky park. They are known for their natural hot springs! I believe they have 13 separate pools that range in temperature from 101 - 114 degrees. The people were very friendly. They have a number of camping areas, and some of the hot tubs are clothing optional. As long as you don't mind soaking next to a wrinkly, naked, old person (wait I just described myself); it is a very interesting park. The sites were very basic with dirt and some uneven roads and sites. This is definitely not a KOA but a nice alternative, and I really liked the hot tubs that were all fed from natural hot springs, and the temperature was regulated by the tank system in the park. We rode our bike about 2 miles down the road to check out City of Rocks State park.
We stumbled into this campsite a few years ago and love it! Great views, quiet and an amazing ambiance. Close to Tucson and easy to get to as long as you don't take Gates Pass Road. The sites are nice and because you cannot make reservations and you can only stay a week. It makes for a nice group of campers interested in nature and not just a cheap place to party. If you like beautiful scenery and a great outdoors experience you will like this campground. I would have given it a 10 if they had showers.
We were heading to a county campground west of Tucson and stayed here for the night. This is simply a big dusty parking lot. With so much space it's hard to believe that they would stick everyone inches apart. Probably great if you are there for an event but as far as camping goes it is very claustrophobic. The lady in the rv office was very nice and someone escorted us to our site. They are very concerned that you park within some posts they have set up so that they can pack in another several hundred rv's The surrounding areas has everything motorized you can imagine. They have oval race car tracks, drag strips, go-cart race tracks, remote controlled air plane areas, and several shooting ranges. Fortunately for us we didn't have any problem with noise but we were there mid-week. They advertise free wifi but you have to go to the office to get it. When I called to see what the password was they said you "probably" can't get it from the campsite. Bottom line is it's ok for an overnight stopover but I wouldn't spend much time here.
