  • Can't decide what was more beautiful, the quantities of cacti or the big jagged mountains on our 21 mile drive. We took a boatload of pictures. Piece of advice: get an early enough start to stop for a...  more »
  • Came here to see the monument. Visited the visitor’s center, saw a quick Ranger discussion on reptiles and took the cactus walk there. Nice. The setting was perfect, as was the weather. We took the Aj...  more »
  • Wonderful place to visit. One of the rare place in the US where you can see Organ Pipe Cactus. I would recommend you to stop at the visitor center to get some information notably because the park is sharing one of its boundary with Mexico. A 4 wheeler with high clearance is recommended as the main two scenic loops of the park are dirt roads. Don't miss the hike to see the double arch!
  • This place is a national monument really close to the Mexican border. For the most part it is a safe place to stay. Also they have a beautiful mountain loop that is good for either driving around or taking a hike up the trails. Overall it is a wonderful place to send the day look at all the cactus and breath taking desert scenes. They also have a camp ground where you can stay the night if needed.
  • This is one of our favorite parks! The campground is gorgeous, like staying in a cactus garden. A number of van tours are available for no extra charge. They are very well done and informative.
  • Hundreds of square miles of about every breed of cacti you can imagine. There's a reasonably priced dry camping ground with 128 sites ($9 a night with Senior Pass ). Guided bus tours available from the campground. Beautiful area!
  • Hidden little Gem-who knew? Was more impressed with this than Joshua Tree. Love the Quail in the morning. Saw how quickly, very quickly a brush fire can start. People seriously drowned your fires. Dont play. Pro-tip if you shower & have long hair at the camp grounds bring a cup. You'll thank me ;-)
