This is one of the BEST KOAs we've ever stayed at!!! The owners were genuinely the nicest we've ever come across (And we've stayed at quite a few KOAs)The cabin was COMPLETELY furnished like a Cozy Inn and very comfortable. The Restroom/showers were impeccable, you could eat off the floors!!!! If you ever have a chance go visit this one!!!!!!!


We are so happy to hear you had a great stay. Please come back soon. We loved having you.

Very convenient Freeway Access, Fairly close to Tucson. Close to Picacho peak (az state park). Not very busy when we visited - quiet. Very nice staff, clean camping grounds, and great pool. Will likely visit again. However, wish there were more activities for kids.

Staff was very friendly. Restrooms & showers were exceptionally clean. However the park looked nothing like pictures on the Internet & that was disapointing

The campground is VERY NEAT and CLEAN. Restrooms and showers VERY CLEAN. Noise from trains and traffic was something I was not used to. All in all it was nice. Staff very friendly and helpful.

Hookups were good, level wide spot, clean, many small ants, had a generally bad vibe here. Next time we will try another campground.

Thesis a different type KOA and may not be what some people want. It is a Rustic Desert Park. Clean but do not expect to see a lot of green grass, just gravel and cactus. The staff also was very friendly and helpful.


You forgot our beautiful tall trees. We do have cactus gardens. We are in the Arizona Desert.

Frankie and Jerry are great hosts. The park is clean and quiet. The pool was very nice and our dogs loved the K-9 area. Would love it if you could expand the items in the store (you'd be amazed at the things we forgot in our hurry to leave home) but we will definitely be back.

This was our first outing in the RV that we recently purchased. The staff went over and above to help us set it up properly and troubleshoot issues we were having. You could not ask for better people. This is a clean and homey park. Can't wait to return when the weather is cooler and the steakhouse is open!


We enjoyed having you stay with us.

I stayed at the picacho peak KOA campground while working on the road for a few months, the campground was clean and well kept, the staff was excellent and extremely polite. I would definitely stay here again if I were camping in the area.

Great stay nice people and a great restaurant with super food

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.

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!
