We had site B-14, a perimeter site, perched at the convergence of several small washes. The sites are huge and well separated, and have electric hookups only. Potable water is available at the dump station and it's easy to fill your tank on the way into the campground. Perimeter sites are preferrable to center sites, many of those were very barren and open to all the other center sites. Take a good look at Google Maps when selecting a site.
Though the campground offers wifi for a fee, we used our own with a super strong Verizon signal. Restroom/shower facilities are large and clean and free.
Interstate 10 and train tracks run about half a mile away so you do hear freeway noise, but it's muted and it's neat to watch the colorful freight trains roll by regularly (no train whistles). The Park is situated between Phoenix and Tucson so the trails can be busy on the weekend.
Minutes after setting up camp I walked Rosie outside and we saw a mama javelina with two babies running through the wash! Minutes after putting out a bird feeder we had Gila Woodpeckers feeding! Hawks circled overhead each day.
Several miles of trails are available at the Park promising outstanding views and an excellent workout among the cactus.
This was a wonderful place to stay, especially if you have a perimeter site. We would definitely stay here again. Rosie loved it too!

|I am so happy and content I'll just sun myself right here on the rocks.|
|Rubbing my back on the rocks is awesome!|
|This is the life!|
|Can we stay here forever...please?|
