Very well maintained. The hosts were top notch. The bathrooms were spotless. The only negative was the freeway and train noise at night were unbearable. If you're staying in a tent, that could be an issue. It was for us. We left earlier than planned.

We're on a cross country bike trip and this campground was a real oasis for us! Jerry and staff are super friendly and helpful. They even loaned us a cooler a gave us a free bag of ice to keep our food cool. Pool was great too! Many thanks!

The site was excellent. All facilities were good. The only problem was the incessant, 24 hour noise from the road and railway.


The noise isn't something we can change. The interstate is close which makes us easy to get to and then to get back onto the interstate.

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.

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.

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!

Always a great experience with KOA. Picacho is an awesome stop for anyone traveling through Arizona. Thanks, again.

I only stayed 1 night but my impressions are favorable. Located right off the highway so it's easy to find but loud from the truck traffic at night. The bathroom/showers were very clean. Friendly staff. Pretty nice place... :)

A nice place to pitch a tent. Clean and functional facilities. Very friendly people. And a good little place to eat as a bonus.

Not family friendly


We are very family friendly. Everyone has to follow the speed limit. It keeps everyone safe. Sorry you had an unpleasant stay.

My 12 year old son and I enjoyed our stay. Very clean and helpful staff. It is very close to the highway and train tracks but we slept great in our tent. Hamburger and pulled pork dinners were great.

We arrived late in the day and the couple managing in the evening went above and beyond to help us get settled in. They were so friendly and helpful and stayed late to make sure we had everything we needed, stopping by after hours to check on us. Plus the bathrooms were the cleanest bathrooms I've ever seen at a campground!

We had a great time. We met wonderful people and will return. The campground was clean and safe, all of the hosts were helpful and knowledgeable. Thank you....

Very noisy, poor internet, the pool is unfortunately despite the heating cold. But extremely nice camp site and people!
Sep 12, 2015
Great location. No internet. Poor water pressure in the shower. No water fountain. Long motorcycle ride and got to the the site after everything was closed. On site restaurant was closed and could not get a beer. Great for RV but not for motorcycle rider.


Perhaps you should mention you need these things on the phone when you know you are coming in after closing. We talked on the phone about you coming in late and leaving before we opened. Sorry you were not happy.

Great service, friendly staff, nice fenced-off campsite. Wifi needs some juice but other than that it was an excellent stay.

Very friendly staff!


More feedback about how we can improve your stay would be helpful for such a poor score.

Very noisy. Next to constantly busy railroad tracks.


The train tracks are actually on the other side of I-10. Pros and cons to being easy in and easy out. Sorry for your inconvenience.

A very nice campground, unfortunately very noisy near trains and interstate. Very friendly staff. Unfortunately the pool heater was broken this time.


We have replaced the solar panels and the pool is nice and warm. Come on back.

Camp was clean & the staff friendly. WIFI was non-existant but this was one KOA that was upfront about it. I sent my emails & made calls before arriving a BIG thank you for that! I arrived just before their season was to end so no Chuck wagon steaks. Can't place my finger on it but traveling alone the camp felt too desolate. Would not stay here again unless they were in full season.

My 11 year old daughter and I (single mom) stayed in our tent at this KOA Kampground...our second year in a row. We both love it...we feel safe and secure, the grounds are well kept and beautiful, the pool area is great, the on-site restaurant has yummy food, and all the folks that work there (and stay there) are super friendly. Looking forward to staying there again next spring break!

This was a night stop on a road trip from Texas to California. We arrived late, no reservation, did a night check-in and were on the road the next morning. The staff handled the night check-in with no problems, the facilities were clean, and the stay was restful.
