I hunt every year in January and I am always looking forward to staying there.

Great campground! Friendly people who are always there to help. No need to go somewhere else to eat because they have a steakhouse on premises. Don't forget to make a reservation for dinner because they get that busy !!!

Very pleasant

Some weird people camped there. School bus; nasty trailers with trash around it; actually several sites with them. Shawn was very nice and accommodating and moved us away from them. Thank you Shawn! Loved the steak dinner in the chuck house.

Very friendly and helpful staff. Nice clean bathrooms and sparking pool. The grounds were well maintained. Closest town is Casa Grande about 20 miles away coming from the north. So shop before heading to Picacho Peak KOA.

We came in late with nowhere to stay. The night check in was fantastic. It was a pleasure, and very informative talking to Mandy. She was very helpful to us. They sell propane here so it made a very nice one stop for us.The campground is very well kept and probably the nicest restrooms I've ever encountered. Great job team !!!

We would truly like to thank everyone that works so hard to take care of this campground. Thank you all so much for making us feel so welcome. The best place we have ever stayed. Hope to visit it again. Thanks again!!

We want to thank you for being so kind and for appreciating how hard everyone here does work to make this campground a great place to stay and a place you would like to come back to. It's easy to leave a survey when you're not happy. It takes a little more effort to take the time when you had a good experience. We need to hear about the things we do well. Thank you, Frankie and the Staf

At the last minute, advised no WiFi in my space. Very noisy from the highway and nearby railroad tracks. Be advised the restaurant is closed mondays and tuesdays. Friendly staff.

Really enjoyed our stay. Love the Cafe and the facilities.

Thought this cabin would be a lot nicer. But they where not up to par compared to other cabins we’ve stayed at. They only have 1 cabin and it only has 1 queen bed, NO twin bunk beds for more than 2 guests, the furniture inside is very old & run down, although clean it doesn’t feel clean. Shared Restrooms are also old and run down. They do have nice friendly staff, but I wouldn’t stay here ag

Staff very amiable and helpful. Good room for large rigs. Excellent restaurant on the premises which is even a destination for diners from the surrounding area. Nine months ago I forgot a water valve/gauge/regulator on a hydrant, called in from down the road, and they saved it for me until I could pick it up this year on the way through. Excellent service -- highly recommended place to stay.

I stayed in the cabin and it had a bed already made up and plenty of towels. That's one less thing to unpack. Now I was impressed by their restaurant. I had the bacon wrapped filet dinner. As a holistic physician, I was most impressed by the packs of stevia they had amongst their choices of sweetener. I will be back.

A great KOA Park! Wish we could have stayed longer. Wide open spaces with very wide streets to turn Big Rigs. The Steakhouse was awesome. I had a Filet Mignon and the wife had the Hamburger Steak and both were cooked to perfection. The owners were very personable and friendly. We will definitely stay here again!

Outstanding

Terrain de camping situé à quelques mètres de l'autoroute 10 et à environ un kilomètre d'une voie ferrée. À cause de cette proximité, c'est très bruyant. Le wifi ne fonctionne pas partout sur le terrain.

No internet in site 66. Very pricey for a site with no sewer hookup.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Sorry you had to go into site water and electric. Our full hookups for 50 amp 41' motor coaches were full. You've come every year after Christmas and we appreciate your business. Though your reviews are hard on our score we appreciate your feedback. I don't see much change for next year but we would love to have you come back.

Breakfast is a prime attractions. Camp is clean and neat.

Nice clean park. Friendly staff. Couple water issues beyond the owners control.

The town had a break and had to turn off water to fix the problem. We are good to go.

Clean/Hot showers and owners very welcoming. The on-site restaurant, Frankie’s Chuckwagon, was exceptional!

We were impressed with the Steak House on the premises. Being from Texas, we love our beef and your steaks were to die for. Cooked just right and a very large portion. After a long drive we enjoyed walking a few feet from our rig to have a nice dinner. The karaoke outside was very pleasant. Thank you and we'll be back.

Thank you for the survey and please come back soon.

The campground is "okay", although SO dusty with zero pavement of any kind, including the roads. It's within a stone's throw of the freeway and railroad tracks, so there's no quiet. But the very worst thing is Frankie's treatment of her work campers. She is verbally abusive and doesn't care who hears it, especially in her restaurant. Horrible! She wears her anger on her face, which is sad.

Beautiful Cacti, clean showers, etc. Nice Park. The only thing we didn't like was the dirt all around. Our little dog was filthy.

Sorry about your little dog. We are in the desert.

We really enjoyed our stay. The hosts were very helpful. They guided us to our spot, showed us where the hookups were and even came back later to check that everything was ok. Our dogs loved the dog park too! We will definitely come back again.
Dec 06, 2017
We have stayed there a few times now, but have always been in a hurry to get home or.... would love to stay a couple of relaxed days. Might even get to the restaurant, have heard good things!!! Thanks!
Dec 06, 2017
The camp hosts were great, facilities excellent and clean. Only issue was hiway and railroad/trains noise all nite

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

They don't participate in our quiet time from 10:00pm to 6:00am. We are close to the freeway, easy on easy off.

The good: Everyone at this KOA was super friendly and very helpful. The onsite steakhouse served one of the best steaks I've eaten in months and service was great, make a reservation early. Very pet friendly with lots of room for pets. The bad: Close to interstate and railroad, very loud all night. Many irresponsible pet owners failed to pick up dog poop, Whats wrong with people?

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We have a nice clean k-9 camp. Most people do pick up after their dogs. We cannot stop the trains or the interstate. Low score I think for so many positives you listed. Sorry you weren't satisfied with our park and service.
Dec 04, 2017
Fantastic people/owners/staff!!! Loved everything about this KOA except one: the Wifi is only available at a 2 seat area outside by the clubhouse. Luckily the Chuckwagon Restaurant was fantastic!!! That helped me feel less frustrated about not having free WiFi at our individual sites! Oh the clubhouse has a really nice unique living room and party room that was all decorated for Christmas.

The wifi is available in many areas. We will be more clear in the future.

Staff was friendly, facilities clean. Reasob for low rating is the noise. Campground is close to I10 and train. It's incredibly noisy at night. Campsitesare very close to one another. Campground overall was not crowded, but instead of giving space they lumped RV's right next to one another; The large motor home next to us had loud generator, so between generator, highway and tra

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Campers don't run generators in our campground. We are close to I-10 easy to get to and easy to get back on when you resume your trip. Our sites are also wide. I'm confused by this review.
Nov 28, 2017
The staff were outstanding. The campground was very, very clean and quite. The only problem we had was we could not stay longer. Had to get back to work. We will be coming back.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We are happy you are coming back. We are also happy you found the campground 'quiet'.

Super friendly staff. Just stayed one night but will definitely be back when we head to N.M.

They offered to give us Thanksgiving dinner so we extended our stay through Thanksgiving. Wonderful place! Frankie is the ultimate hostess!

The nicest people are here at this KOA. It is super clean, and I used the great laundry and dish washing facilities. Coffee in the morning was good. Fantastic location near the interstate. (Of course, being near the freeway does come with the noise of the freeway).

Great to find some shade in AZ. Nice staff. Will stay again.

Nice people but no hot water and restaurant only opened part of the year. Which is fine but needs to be clearer in their ad. Hi

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Apologies for the hot water, the new system is in. Not often but occasionally things need to be fixed or replaced. We are sorry for your inconvenience.
