  • Large sites, must have reservations since they are very busy. Right off I-10. Good hiking trails to Picacho Peak. Lots of Jumping Cholla cactus, ugh! Gorgeous sunsets.  more »
  • Pretty location. 3 minutes off I-10. Slight highway, train noise. Water/sewer not working on day I was there. Paid WiFi avail at $4.00/day. Very nice overnight.  more »
  • The park with its vegetation will remind anyone of what "the west" looks like. The park is clean, has great rest rooms, and is located about halfway between Tucson and Phoenix  more »
  • I've driven by this park hundreds of times on my way to something else and always enjoyed the beauty of the peak. This time I focused on this park and I'm glad I did! Really nice campground area, clean restrooms and well kept picnic areas. Beautiful visitor center and very helpful staff. The Mexican poppies were just beginning to bloom along with other beautiful flowers. The trails are good, but i have a fear of heights so i didnt do the famous "vertical" hike. But, oh my, the hike to the north at the very end of the drive is amazing and the sunsets are stunning! Definitely a must do experience! Stayed 4 nights and could've stayed longer. Great location to go see other sights in the area, too.
  • We visited Picacho Peak State Park one day on the way to Tucson, because we had never been there even though we drive past it often. It is a neat place with a lot of history. Worth the stop.
  • Easy to Moderate to difficult hikes. Cables bring gloves. Bring WATER. Clean bathrooms. $7 park fee worth every penny. Can get pretty busy.
  • Conveniently located close to I70 and near a few stores. Clean park with plenty of places to walk/ride a bike. Very group oriented should that be a need. Beautiful view of the mountains and water!
  • This is what's left of the Sonoran Desert now preserved as a state park here for many to enjoy campgrounds hiking trails restrooms what a beautiful & serene place to visit.
