Enjoyed the entertainment and the area. Very nice campground. Nicely landscaped with cactus. Great people. Enjoyed our stay.

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 :)

Just a short two night stay. Very nice people, nice quiet park. Excellent restaraunt. Fun things to do in the area.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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!

Best park we have been to! The staff and hosts are the best, freindly and go out of their way to make your stay awesome. Frankie's chuckwagon has great food, entertainment and events. And our 7 year old meeting Elvis as we were leaving was priceless. We will be back next year!

We did not have wifi or tv for weather, other than that we liked the overall campground. Loved seeing the horses in front of our site.
