handy stop to avoid rush hour phoenix, great little cafe. nice people...

Can't wait for the owner's rebuttal on this review. Nonetheless, I'm going to be honest. Very noisy from freeway traffic and trains. Woke up all night long. Also, the 50 amp pull-thru's sewer was so far to the rear of the space, we had to unhook our car to use the sewer. Newer coach. Haven't experienced that problem before. Last, the park's too far from anything. Yes, we are VIP KOA lovers!! ;-)

You were in a very nice 'long' pull through we use for 40' motor coaches towing that have no problem. Noise comes with the interstate. We do our best to make your stay Great. We are so sorry your were not happy with our KOA.

This is a terrific KOA: the grounds are beautiful and the staff are wonderful. At it didn't hurt to have Elvis at the park!

I loved the Kamping Kabin. It was such a nice change from others I have stayed in. It is furnished and includes bedding and clean towels! And such nice people own the camp. I enjoyed my stay very much.

Your Cafe/resturant "Chuck's" is absolutely amazing! Food quality and staff service can't be beat! Just amazing! Oh! If I may add a request for food selection....please, please, find a supplier for okra so I can have fried okra next time. Please

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

It is actually "Frankie's Chuckwagon" we will look for some okra for you. Thanks for staying with us.

Older location but very nicely kept and clean - some road and railroad noise but what RV Park isn't by a road or a railroad :)
Feb 25, 2014
Just a short two night stay. Very nice people, nice quiet park. Excellent restaraunt. Fun things to do in the area.
Feb 25, 2014
Very nice campground with an excellent cafe on site. Level tent sites, some shade. Clean bathrooms. Friendly staff.
Feb 25, 2014
I requested a late checkout on reservation but didn't find out it wasn't available until I checked in. We should have been contacted by phone or email that it wasn't going to be available. I have stayed here numerous times in the past and have always been able to get a late checkout, so it is reasonable to expect that it would be available this time.

We did all we could to accommodate you. We explained our full hookups were all reserved. Please find yourself a campground more suitable for your needs.

Great Steak House! Miss communication about water at our site.
Feb 23, 2014
Owners were great. Restaurant people fun and food great.

The thing that sets apart Picacho/Tucson KOA from the rest was the great steak we had at Frankie's Chuck Wagon. We met cowboy celebrity and KOA street namesake, Pete Phelps, while dining which was also a hoot. Facilities were clean and accessible. All the folks were friendly.
Feb 20, 2014
Hosts were friendly and helpful. Sites were level and shaded. Only complaint is that there was way, way to much dust. No grass anywhere, just dirt.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Water is precious in the dessert, sorry no grass, nice big trees though.

The campground is fun by very nice people who did what they could to switch us to a better site. Being off the highway it was noisy but not as bad as it could have been. Some dust control is needed.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We would love to hear your suggestions about dust control if you have some solutions.
Feb 18, 2014
Great team working there, excellent food at Frankie's Chuckwagon and clean facilities make for an all around excellent camping experience.
Feb 18, 2014
As usual I had a great stay here in their camping cabin complete with linens and an easy chair. I had a tasty meal at their café and later on was treated to entertainment by Elvis himself. I was here on a bicycle.

Great location, a lot of attractions in any direction of the campground. Plus it's only 90 minutes from our house, great 3-day getaway. Also, very clean bathrooms and a very good staff.
Feb 16, 2014
It was a great place to stay. Loved the great dinner we had while we were there. We be back. Thanks Rick & Terri Denton.

Only stayed overnight; but facilities looked great. The staff was very helpful at check in and gave us a detour around Pheonix to Lake Havasu. Will stop by again.
Feb 08, 2014
Typical KOA -- excellent in all respects. We keep looking for KOAs wherever we go.
Feb 08, 2014
Everything was wonderful. The people was so kind and friendly. Had a great time.
Feb 08, 2014
WOW - I pulled into Picacho KOA to have all my day's travel "worries" disappear. I have now found a oasis to go to as I travel to San Diego each year. The staff and owners as well as the great entertainment and food along with a level long site. Did I mention Elvis was singing there, WOW - This place is wonderful - stop you'll be delighted, I was and will return.

Bless your heart, we sure enjoyed having you. We look forward to your return.

The steak house was a welcome sight at the end of the day! Great food & service. Elvis rocked! Will be back.

There are trains passing during the night that do whistle as they go by.

Wish I could ask them not to do that.

Frankie, Katie and Jerry were very helpful. This was my first visit to a campground with my trailer. They made it easy for me. The restaurant was awesome. I will be back. Thanks.
Feb 03, 2014
One of our favorites. Easy to pull in, set up. Good sized sites, attractive Southwestern vegetation. Even some horses to watch! Pet friendly, nice owners and staff and a good on-site restaurant if you don't want to cook!

Very intimate campground. Made many good friends. Easy location for Tucson excursions and trips to Casa Grande. Excellent food at the KOA. Restaurant, Frankie's Steakhouse. Nice pool and beautiful landscaping. Very neat and clean everywhere!

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We enjoyed having you here. Ya'll come back
Feb 01, 2014
Nice hosts and decent facility. Tent sites are closest to the freeway, so pretty noisy. Since tents have no soundproofing, would be nice if they located them further back, but guess,they try and put them close to the bath house.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

You are correct. Close to the restrooms and showers is a convenience and the interstate is close by. Sorry you didn't have the best stay.

Highly reccomend!
