  • Just got back today from an overnight camp-out w/our Cub Scouts. We had the Road Runner area reserved. We had a camp area with several fire pits, and one main pit area, surrounded by the beautiful mou...  more »
  • Very good, convenient facilities for picnics protected from the sun, wind, etc. The views from the "flatland" are great. Did not try the trails, but obviously the views would be spectacular. 
  • It's worth a detour! Who wants to see a really nice piece of Arizona desert, is right here! Promenades welcoming small and beautiful picnic facilities (also covered in part!) lure for a trip. We can recommend this system to also campers! The highway is not too far away, but in no way interferes with. Note to campers: easy access, paved parking, there's water, shade roofs, and a very nice bathroom with shower / toilet House.

  • One of the best hikes in Tucson is the Hunter Trail. It is a challenging hike but the payoff at the top is worth it. It's also pretty fun traversing the cable rope ladders. Being a good pair of leather gloves for those sections and pack plenty of water. There is usually ample parking in the park area, bit it is a popular trail, so can be limited during the spring and nice weather. A small playground can also be found near the base of the peak.
  • What a great place to stop and enjoy the afternoon! Was about 94* in the valley. 89° at the top of the Picacho Peak. Difficult Hike ! Sunny ! So bring H2O. Only 1800' of elevation gain. Took me an hour to go up. Heard birds, I never heard before. It was green and Beautiful !!
  • This is one of the best and most taxing quick hikes in AZ. The straight approach is especially challenging, but you can opt for the longer route up the saddle. Either way your payoff at the top is an unmatched 360 degree view of the Catalinas and the Sonoran desert. A great time to go is March-April when desert poppies and other wildflowers are in full bloom. Be forewarned that there a few spots on the way to the top that require the use of assistive cables, so bring gloves to protect your Palmolive hands.
  • Right off highway I-10. Gas station and subway is less than 10 mins away. Paid Wifi is available at certain rates for # of days, I'm able to pick up wifi signal at campsite B1. Clean restrooms and great views! Sunset is awesome! Desert temperatures and low winds, except when there's a thunderstorm near by. Plenty of mosquitoes so come prepared. Cell phone signal is good.
  • Awesome hikes, clean bathrooms and showers, friendly rangers, and really nice people camping! I met a super friendly couple while camping in the 110 heat. Did one of the hottest hikes (108F). Worth it and will go back! (When is cooler ;D)
