Gila Bend KOA

An Oasis in the Sonoran Desert

Welcome to the Gila Bend KOA!

After a day of rolling through the dramatic and diverse Sonoran Desert, you can roll your rig right into this KOA. It's so convenient with the easy-on/easy-off  access from both I-8 and AZ 85. The campground was built for RVers by RVers and it shows: You'll find roomy full-hookup sites throughout the park - all big rig friendly! Relax by the heated pool, enjoy the outdoor fireplace on the 2,500-square-foot veranda or just soak up the desert views and dark evening skies from your site. Fido will love the 4,000-square-foot Kamp K9 with three separate corrals (two with grassy areas). Explore nearby historic sites or the many trails in the desert. Although you're just an hour from Phoenix, you'll feel worlds away as you savor a brilliant sunset at day's end. Tent Sites closed June 15 - Oct. 1. Pool: Open all year. Max pull thru: 100 feet. Your hosts: Scott Swanson & Winston.
