Overview:  This is a gem of a state park just outside Tucson.  The views of the Santa Catalina Mountains are amazing.  It is just outside the city, but feels like you are in the middle of nature!  They have super nice restrooms and very friendly staff.  The campsites are very spacious and private.  It is a must see in the Tucson area!

Campsites:  Level, paved, spacious sites with great views!  30/50 AMP with water (no sewer hook-ups).  Gravel patio area with picnic table at each site.

Amenities: The cleanest, freshest bathhouse (showers, toilets) we have seen!  Dump station at campground and a second one available at entrance to park. Wonderful hiking/biking/equestrian trails, camp store, pavilions for groups, daily or weekly ranger lead activities, and picnic areas.

Pet friendly: Yes.  Some trail restrictions due to recent Bighorn sheep re-introduction.
