Not sure why you give negative responses here and in other Forums...you forgot to mention all the dust storms. Maybe a little more research on the subject would be good.
First of all Picacho Peak is NOT a destination place but a place to visit and take in some of the ambiance and history in this area of the SW. Like visiting Tombstone, Bisby, Benson, Katchner Caverns, Nogales...and the list goes on.
We stay in Casa Grande which is not far at all (18 miles) and there are smaller towns closer like Eloy (less than 5 miles) that have services including RV Parks with all the amenities including full hookups if that is what you want.
If traveling 5 miles to stock up on food, fuel etc. is to far for some so be it.
Food Town IGA is a full-service grocery store with an on-site butcher shop, bakery and deli in Eloy. Link to store
If one wants the big box stores, more choices for dining, a Regional Medical Center then Casa Grande is only 18 miles N on I-10.
To the OP: With all that said enjoy your travels and Picacho Peak could be one you'll enjoy.
