  • We camped here for 2 weeks and although we love this park, there is no water for hookups. It's difficult to recommend now. I wish Az Parks would let the public know what their plans are to fix this.....  more »
  • Driven in this State Park a few times and it is really nice. There are places to park an RV, have a picnic, and restrooms. The flowers in the springtime are really pretty! Worth the entry fee.  more »
  • Wonderful place to stop for lunch or a driving break along 1-10! $7 gets you a nice variety of shaded picnic tables and some fun very short hikes (we did Children's Cove) that will help burn off energy, see lots of kinds of cacti, and enjoy the amazing views that come with a little elevation. The ranger was kind and helpful and the bathrooms were super clean.
  • So I’ve been living in Tucson for 4 years now. On various occasions I travel to Phoenix for one thing or another and on my way I would always pass Picacho Peak. It looked very mesmerizing every time and kept telling myself I should pay a visit. I finally decided to go once and for all and boy I wasn’t disappointed. There are various trails you can choose from depending on difficulty. I decided to take the long trail up spontaneously. I made it about 3/4 of the way before I decided to turn back because I didn’t feel prepared to make it the rest of the way. I will probably return well-equipped next time with plenty of fluids and some food, gloves, first aid kit etc. just to be on the safe side. It’s recommended because it’s a tough trail actually and it’s not for everybody. The scenery is magnificent for sure and I love the abundance of the teddy bear chollas which is one of my favourite cacti. I will definitely return again. 👍☺️✌️
