The Picacho KOA was an oasis in the desert for us, after a long long day of driving from California. Wonderful people, great service, incredibly clean, nicely located tent sites and a fantastic playground for the kids. I would return to this KOA any day!


Thank you so much for your comments. We hope you do come back again.

It'seems like we are home when we stay here. Great people and great food at the steakhouse! We will return in October.

The cleanliness of Restrooms was spectacular. The dish washing sink left more to be desired. Was dirty. Our shoes got stolen on the last day. There wasn't anyone but us and the hosts on the camp ground. One pair was and old worn out sneakers, and the other a very expensive five toe vibram shoes. Overall, it's a great place to stay but watch your belongings!!!!! Not all smiling faces are friendly!


Wish you would have come in to tell us about this. We don't have things stolen here so we're surprised. We've had some dust storms and apologize about the sink. Hope you will come back to see us.

Enjoyed our nights stay but noisy from interstate traffic, but would not let that keep us from staying again! Great personnel! Enjoyed looking at all the different cacti and flowering bushes.

Even though they were closing up for the season the next week they treated us very good and the facilities were very clean. Miss having cable like most other KOA's though

We spend a weekend and it was very nice spot. With 4 little ones that loved the playground. All the facilities we're clean at all times. Unfortunately it was windy the evening we got there and dust was flying everywhere but thats to be expected in the desert. Overall this was a nice place!

Noise from freeway and trains.

Wonderfully friendly service. Beautiful desert grounds with shade!!!!
Apr 06, 2016
WiFi only available at office. No cable. WAY too loud from the freeway traffic!!!!!!! But Frankies Chuckwagon has the best pulled pork!!


It is important to notice these things when you are checking in. You have 1 hour from the time of check in for a full refund at any KOA. If this isn't the right fit for you, please don't stay. We work very hard to have a campground people love. This just isn't the campground for you.

Friendly, helpful staff. Extended our stay from 4 nights to 7. Thanks! !


We are happy you could stay longer. Come back again.

Always a great experience with KOA. Picacho is an awesome stop for anyone traveling through Arizona. Thanks, again.

Very nice, nice roomy spots, restrooms were extremely clean. Pool was nice. We will be staying here again.
Apr 04, 2016
The staff was friendly, and the park met all our needs, and then some. We travel with a child and 2 large dogs. Our son swam in the pool, had lots of room to run and explore, and loved all the horses and cattle surrounding the property. Our dogs had great fun in the large cattle roping field, so that we were able to keep them exercised in a fun way. We'll definitely be back if we get the chance!

The grounds are lovely; the pool was nice; the staff were very friendly; and the restaurant was enjoyable. We stayed in the cabin, and even though it was cute and cozy, the traffic noise made it very hard to sleep. So, unfortunately we couldn't rate this higher.


Next time we'll see what we can do about the interstate noise for you.

Usually it is a great experience here. This time the staff was a little grumpy. My wife showed up after I did and one of the guys was very rude to her telling her he didn't recognize the car and she explained that's because the car has never been here before my husband is in there and no I do not know the lot number but instead of saying okay just let me check he was extremely rude to her.


We are sorry you had an unpleasant experience. There is signage to check in at the office before you enter the campground. Had she checked in we would have escorted her to where you were. Hopefully next time it will be a more cheerful experience. We hope you will come back.

Dogs running around unleashed. Poop not being picked up.


We will be more diligent. Thank you for you comment.

Great Dinner and service

The personal touches & caring nature of the hosts made this KOA stand out. Loved all the hummingbird feeders. The entire place was tidy & organized. I typically pitch a tent, but this time I chose a simple cabin (3 nights), because I was arriving late & departing early. The Chuckwagon Cafe was quite handy. I ate dinner there upon my arrival, and enjoyed a cold beer during one of their happy hours.

Very friendly staff, great pool for lazy days :-) food is the best, really perfect! We will come again if we'll ever be around. Greetings from Belgium!

This is a great family run KOA we enjoy the people and it is very clean. Nice restaurant on site but make reservation!The only negative is that you can hear the highway a little bit.


Thank you so much

I only stayed 1 night but my impressions are favorable. Located right off the highway so it's easy to find but loud from the truck traffic at night. The bathroom/showers were very clean. Friendly staff. Pretty nice place... :)
Mar 23, 2016
This was our first stay ever at a commercial campground. We expected crowding and no privacy. We found friendly people, excellent and clean facilities, an outstanding restaurant and as much privacy or company as we wished. Thank you! We'll be back!


Thank you so much for your survey. We hope you will come to see us many times.

Enjoyed heated pool, nice land scape, cats by the office, bar with nice music and delicious Franky'Steak cook on the Mesquite wood.
Mar 21, 2016
Owners were very friendly and helpful, the bathrooms were clean. However the whole place just looks tired and there is no attempt to make it look better, just planting flowers here and there would help.
Mar 21, 2016
My husband and I had a wonderful stay at this KOA campground. They have a great dog park that our dogs loved. The facilities were clean and well kept. We ate one night at the steakhouse-excellent food and service. We would stay again if we were ever out that way. Thanks to Frankie for all the suggestions and help.

Excellent place; friendly staff (including the resident cats). :) A bit dusty, but plenty of shade trees.

A nice place to pitch a tent. Clean and functional facilities. Very friendly people. And a good little place to eat as a bonus.
