Campground Reviews

Nov 26, 2013
The campground caretakers were extremely nice, however 30 plus dollars to set up my tent on some grass is a criminal fee. I arrived at night, prices were not posted, and I was just tent camping. I could have stayed at a motel for 30 dollars. Not a positive experience in that regard, but I will stress that the hosts were very, very nice people.

Our prices are inline with the state park. We will take a reservation for no charge and the state park charges $5.00 to take an online reservation. We have food to your site, a pool, clean warm restrooms. Our goal is to make stays Great.

Cutest cosy cabin we have stayed in. Staff was so helpful in a stressful situation. I am a light sleeper, didn't hear noise at all. Liked the cacti.

We liked this park. It was a spur of the moment choice to add to our travels to Mesa. We took the scenic Rout via Florence AZ. Beautiful desert.

Everyone was really friendly and inviting. The grounds were beautiful and well kept and the Kabin we stayed in was the best we ever experienced. It was like sleeping in your own bedroom. Great time.

Enjoyable every time we pass through. Especially like the dog park area and the wonderful friendliness of the owners...

This is an incredible camp. Everyone, staff and campers, are very warm, friendly and helpful. I'm headed back next week for an extended stay as I miss the people.

I really enjoyed my stay in Picacho. Dean and his wife were wonderful. Dean helped me set up my tent and he even delivered my dinner ! I built a nice campfire and went to sleep under the stars. Everything was neat and clean. VERY well taken care of. Thank you !!!!!

Very pleasant stay at a nice campground. Facilities are excellent and the hosts and all the campground staff were very friendly and helpful. our dog loved Kamp K9 and we had a hard time getting him out of there.

Staff friendly & helpful, nice campground with trees. BUT Internet is NOT available at individual sites, only at the clubhouse which closes at 7pm. This should have been mentioned in the directory. Rating 10 only if internet at sites.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Good point. No wifi to your site will be mentioned in the next directory. Thank you for your suggestion.

It was the BEST KOA Cabin that we have ever stayed in. The cabin was cozy and very clean - finished with extra touches for added comfort. The whole park was extremely clean & nice - bath house was spotless.

It is so nice to have someone happy with the result of the work we put into our campground. Hope they come back many times.

In the KOA magazine it said there was a restaurant onsite. When we arrived we were told it would not open until December 1. Also the wi-fi was very poor at our site. So poor we could not access it. Also the landscaping needs to be made much, much better.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We offer food to your site. The "magazine" states wifi not wifi at your site. Landscaping is desert and lovely.
Oct 24, 2013
Poorly run KOA. Piles of dead trees and branches laying around. Poor wifi. Could only use at the office. Would not stay here again nor would I recommend.
Oct 23, 2013
This is the best KOA we've ever stayed at! And, the different cacti. It reminded you of a botanical garden.
Oct 21, 2013
very very clean inside and out Frank and Jerry were great.So was their food .
Oct 21, 2013
The best pool of all KOAs. Not the size, but the temperature! Great camping sink, super showers. We will come back!

I'm a native Arizonan so we appreciated the western motif and landscaping. Since the Casita RV is well insulated, we didn't hear the I-10 traffic. We enjoyed the pulled beef and pork BBQ. We probably stay again this Winter. R&V

Very clean facility and friendly staff. No camp ground wifi though. Landscaping was very nice.
Oct 16, 2013
Stay nice. Only dirt to walk the dogs on, no real store to speak of but it is OK for one night only when it is within our range of travel. Staff helpful!
Oct 16, 2013
Great rest stop.

The staff (owners?) were fantastic, my tent site was perfect and the bathroom was heated. But this KOA is 100 yards from a major freeway (Tucson - Phoenix.)If you are tent camping, give up any chance of sleep. The constant din of fwy traffic is unbearable. Why KOA builds so near freeways is beyond me. The niceness of the staff and the campground itself is overshadowed by the unrelenting fwy noise
Oct 14, 2013
Had a good time - nice office folks. Kids had fun. Thank you
Oct 13, 2013
Interstate,train,and plane noise was Terrible and very limited shade unlike the website stated.The managers were nice and restrooms were clean.
Oct 12, 2013
Very nice, clean KOA. Great staff. Nice amenities. Nicest dog run I have scene in any RV park.
Oct 11, 2013
Very nicely desert landscaped. Wonderfully long level sites. Large and clean dog yard. Perfect overnight stop!
Oct 09, 2013
Very clean and very friendly!

Railroad track, horses/flys/smells, freeway noise. hosts were friendlyt

City campgrounds are better for some campers. We are in the country. Can't change that.
Oct 08, 2013
for the price$$$ they should have paved streets and cable tv. The people were friendly, but we could stay other places near there for alot less.

KOA policy, not happy within the first hour - full refund. I wish they would have said something to us.

VERY CLEAN and friendly.

Other than train and freeway noise, this was a very nice, friendly place.
Oct 06, 2013
Staff is very friendly and helpful. Facilities are very clean. Nice pool. Sites are long, wide and level. Gravel, no grass but some interesting cacti and trees. On site seasonal restaurant. They will deliver limited menu items to your site. They have cube ice and fresh eggs for sale. Only reason I did not rate it a 5 is that it is in a very remote location. Stay long time if you like that.
Oct 04, 2013
The people in the office were very friendly and the campplace was nice. In the shadow. We enjoyed swimming in the pool.And the food you cooced for us!!! The sanitair was good and clean.Thank you for everything!
