Thumbs up Gilbert Rey Campground in Tucson Mountain park

My wife Anne has wanted to photograph the huge Saguaro Cactus for a while now. Since we love the National Parks we decided to head on over to Tucson and make a visit to Saguaro National Park for the first time. There are no campgrounds in the park for a rig our size but we did find a nice county park nearby called Gilbert Rey Campground in Tucson Mountain park. The park is located just a few miles from Saguaro National Park West. Perfect! The Gilbert Rey Campground was nestled in among the giant Saguaro cactus with nice views of the surrounding hills. Itís a picturesque little place with 30 amp electric, RV dump station and fresh water fill. The price is very reasonable at $20 a night.

Looks like a great place to stay. Sounds like my kind of place, got to love those county parks and the price too. Jim

Yes it's true, come to think of it I've rarely been disappointed with a stay in a county park.

If you haven't already done so the visitor's center at Saguaro National Park is really nice. Just down the road on Ajo Highway is Tiny's. Check it out on the night they have their rib special. On the other side of the valley is another gem of a campground- Catalina State Park. Water, 50 amp electric and the cleanest bathrooms I've ever seen in any park. Great hiking and lots to do. Although you wouldn't know it from the park, just outside the entrance is a new mall with Walmart (no overnight parking), movie theatre, and some nice restaurants.r 4th Ave and downtown Tucson is an interesting place. Check out the Hotel Congress where Dillinger's gang was captured. The Gem and Mineral Show is coming up together with Fiesta de los Vacqueros with the largest non-mechanized parade in the world
