  • 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 »
  • This is a good location for hiking, and also good for seeing lots of flowers and cacti in bloom. I found it to be a great place to obtain some great photographic shots of the surrounding desert. Well ...  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.
  • 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!
  • Great hike to the peak. Front side was crowded, back side was not. Backside was better trail. The park rangers seem to take their jobs a bit too seriously. Nice facilities with restrooms and showers. Tent camping is a bit noisy with highway and trains nearby. I'd go back.
  • This was a great place to hike. I would suggest that the peak is more of a scramble than a hike but it was a lot of fun. There are cables that you can hang on to, bring a pair of gloves.There's great facilities in the park and the staff were helpful. One thing that could be improved is the map on the handout.
  • Camped for two days. Great facility. Quiet. Beautiful. Real restrooms with showers. Very clean. Definitely adding it to places I want to visit again. Only complaint was that the campsite was a little rocky which made for some uncomfortable sleeping.
