Very nice KOA, well taken care of....the restrooms/showers were very clean. Nice little restaurant "Frankies" very good. beautiful pool and nice area for dogs!

We especially enjoyed the unique cactus gardens located around the sites. Many were blooming at this time of the year. (April)

Very nice park. Close to Picacho State park. The sites were nice, though the tree in our site needed to be trimmed a little bit. We had some difficulty with our awning getting caught in the tree. Lot's of cactus around, so watch little kids. The staff was very friendly and accommodating.

This was a great overnight stay - large spaces where we did not have to unhook our toad. Owner was fun and very helpful. We would stop here again if we are in the area.

This was our first stay at a KOA, we typically stay at state parks or dispersed camping. What we found appealing: very clean restrooms! Friendly staff. Great food at the restaurant. Enjoyed the pool! Dog park was very nice! What we would love to see: paved campsites to help keep dust down. Shade tree in front of the cabin. Something to 'do' within walking distance, such as trail rides

Staff was so helpful and friendly. We locked our key in the cabin ( late at night) and they were so understanding and went out of their way to help us. Thank you so much!

Great facility! It is kept up nicely and has a lot of extra, personal touches.

Friendly and helpful staff. Clean facilities. Great steakhouse. The parks shade trees and cactus make for a great atmosphere. Would recommend you make an early reservation. This campground fills up in the winter.

Older KOA needs some repairs---great for Snowbirds! Road and train noise close by!

This is one of our usual stops on our way to and from Iowa/Indio CA. We like the campground, the staff, the restaurant and the convenient access, so we are repeat customers. The staff goes out of their way to be helpful and are always friendly.

What a great clean campground and such friendly people. The restaurant(Chuckwagon) was an unexpected delight and the best steak I have had in a long time. I would say "STAY HERE FOR A GREAT CAMPING EXPERIENCE", you can't go wrong.

Very friendly staff. Clean and level sites. Due to the closeness to freeway it was a bit noisy.

Stayed for five weeks and enjoyed it. Friendly helpful staff. Only drawback was road noise from nearby interstate although talking to a fellow camper located further away indicated that she didn't notice the noise as much. Clean bathrooms and pretty much located between Phoenix and Tucson.

Great people and great site. Booked for next year already.
Apr 01, 2018
Although I loved the large sites and wonderful staff, the interstate road noise, lack of cable, and lack of decent WiFi soured my stay.

We stayed for 3 months and enjoyed our stay very much. Frankie ans Jerry Cross were very helpful and kind and took care of all our needs. Their staff went over and beyond to see all of our questions and request were taken care of. We have already rebooked for next year.

I'm a new RV owner so don't have much experience to compare to. However, the staff at this park was as good as it could be. Thanks,

Grounds well taken care of and very clean restrooms. Thank you!

Very pleasant people. Clean facilities and friendly

Some issues from the get go-no bunk bed in the cabin or 11am check in as stated on website & in confirmation emails, but we didn't mind the cobwebs in the cabin as we felt like it added to the charm. The lady cleaning the pool in the AM was extremely rude, & the check-in lady was pretty curt although she did apologize later. Terry was the BEST part of our stay; his customer service is AMAZING!

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We are very sorry and this won't happen again. We have always had great reviews on our cabin. Our website does say 11:00 check in and it shouldn't have been a problem. Our confirmation does say the cabin sleeps 2. Sorry for the confusion.

Jerry and Frankie Cross were very welcoming when we got to the KOA site. Frankie gave thorough details about our stay, and being new to KOA, gave us insight to a KOA membership to save a few bux. Aside from the occasional highway passersby, it was a very quiet and pleasant stay, with friendly KOA companions at every lot! :) We'll visit again!

Very friendly and helpful staff. Huge area for dogs to run. Clean bathrooms. Clean and relaxing pool. Did not eat at the restaurant this time, but in past very good.
Mar 25, 2018
It was very good: close to a town, close to a good veterinarian (I have animals and needed one), good restaurant, great facilities and all thestaffweregreat! Am returning this fall.

Loved the steak house - and excellent steaks! Good dog area which we and the dogs love - plus huge field if they wanted a run!! Friendly staff.
Mar 23, 2018
Friendly staff and RV guests. Very clean restrooms. Level sites.
Mar 22, 2018
Clean, staff and guests friendly, pool, pet and kid area, lots of plants and flowers, good size pull throughs.
Mar 22, 2018
Pleasant campground, nice people, helpful hosts. The rates are good. Dinner at Frankie's Chuckwagon was excellent both times! Being able to buy fresh eggs from Frankie's chickens is a plus! The doggie park is a plus! It's a shame the adjacent pasture is now off limits, though. In past years that huge area was available as a very large dog sun, and it's now locked. I hope access can be regained.

Thank you. The lock has been removed.

Nice clean campground but too near the Interstate for me -- traffic noise all night.
Mar 21, 2018
Staying at Picacho KOA was a pleasure. The staff, the views, the steakhouse, the overall atmosphere made our stay a most enjoyable tome.
Mar 21, 2018
People very friendly but we were put next to the dump station when other sites were available
Mar 21, 2018
A lot of noise from the highway and railroad tracks. Nice friendly staff.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Being close to I-10 means convenience getting here and getting back on I-10 and it means some traffic noise. It bothers some people and others sleep like babies. Please don't stay close to the highway if noise bothers you. We are striving for our founders award again and it's hard to achieve when we are being slapped with a low score for something we have no control over.
