Don't Park In The Desert
Nice park. We enjoyed our bike rides. A park authority knocked on our door asking us to move our Jeep as it was "parked in the desert". I totally misread the semicircle of small boulders as a boundary next to our narrow site as our tow vehicle parking area. I honestly thought the rocks were a boundary. I must be delusional.

Great campground. Very nice sites that are private. Great hiking trails from the campground. Clean bathrooms with hot showers. Very quiet and peaceful. We will be back.

This was a beautiful setting....mountains, trails, cactus-a-plenty! There is no sewer hookups, but there are dump stations which were close. And as you would expect, there was no WiFi so we relied upon our hotspot. One of the trailheads came right off of the campsite, which was ideal. The only thing that we were not happy with was the procedure for getting in the gate after hours. The keypad was several feet from the road and we had to exit our vehicle on a very dark stretch of road to enter the passcode and there were always occupied cars parked along the stretch. We were uncomfortable with that. However...we would stay again.

This is one of the best regional parks around. They offer full hookups but are usually full on the weekends. They offer overflow dry camping if they are full $15. The dry camping actually has better views and space but you can only stay in there if the full hookups are full. If a spot opens in full hookups they force you to go in a full hookup spot $32. I didn't like that but this destination is worth it. They have a beautiful library at the front of the park that is all glass with views of the desert and the city. If you want to see cactus and amazing views of the valley this is the place. There is a water valve to fill your tank right before you enter the dry camping on your left side.

I came out here mainly because I was finding it a challenge to find water to fill my tanks in Phoenix. Although I am dry camping for $12, there is water available as well as trash barrels. The road out to the overflow campground is 4 miles, but, wow, it’s really beautiful here and lots of trails to wander on!

We stayed here Nov 15th thru Nov 18, 2017. Cost was$30 per day with $8 reservation fee. Paved roads with gravel parking sites but all sites are nicely maintained by park Staff. Sites are level and big rig friendly. Pull thru's are basically just a wide spot on the road. Clean open dump sites. Very little shade. Friendly Staff and check in process was very organized. Verizon 4G with two bars. No Wi-Fi. No ice for sale at campground. I haven't checked actual mileage but it looks to be over 5 miles to the nearest grocery store. We would stay here again.
