There are not a whole lot of options with full hookups near the Chiricahua Mountains, so Ft Willcox RV Park was our choice for a place to stay while we explored.
This is a Passport America park, so the rate was reasonable. Roads are gravel as well as the sites. There are 26 sites, each with a picnic table; sites are quite close together. Small laundry room and that's about it. We had good, solid 3G Verizon service.
The park is maybe a mile from I-10, but sits on I-10 business route, so there is some road noise.
This place is nothing fancy and served its purpose for us as a way to visit Chiricahua National Monument (40 miles away) and Ft Bowie National Historic Site (33 miles away). Both of those sites were well worth a stopover at a very plain RV park.
Thanks - now we have a place to stay when we visit the Chiricahua Mountains. Appreciated your review of the park. It's always good to know what you're in for when you're on the road.ReplyDelete
We did not stay there and agree there is not much choice in camping. Other than Chiricahua Mountains there was actually the Wilcox Playa and wine tasting to be done at Willcox also.ReplyDelete
I noticed a bird watching sign leading to the playa but never had a chance to go out there. BUT, we did see a Northern Harrier from the RV park! I remember your writing about the wines...the opportunity was never right for us to go tasting this time around.Delete
We loved the campground in Chiricahua, but it doesn't accommodate larger RV's to well.. our 26.5 Lazy Daze would fit into several sites, but overhanging tree limbs are the biggest problem for taller rigs. We noticed some larger rigs camped right outside the park where a forest service road takes off to Protal... and a few more up in the woods on that same road. Some nice big sites up there about 3 to 6 miles and they back up to a nice creek in the pine trees.ReplyDelete

The day we visited Chiricahua there were a couple big rigs right outside the park entrance as well...seemed like a strange place to boondock! We'll have to check out the Pinery Canyon sites some time. We heard that Indian Bread Rocks (on the East side of the Dos Cabezas) had good boondocking area that would accommodate large rigs.Delete
