RV Camping in Saguaro NP

Having trouble figuring out if you can make reservations to stay in Saguaro NP. Do you or can you get reservations? We have a 30' RV. Traveling date April 16th. Small kids.

Hows the weather that time of year? We just need a stopover between Ruidoso, NM and San Diego, CA.

Would appreciate any ideas.

That is in the wilderness area. No roads in there, only trails. And the camping is for tent camping.

I would suggest cactus Country RV Park, Just off I-10 on Houghton Road.


Another option, about 40 miles east of there, would be the Triangle-T guest ranch.

It has been several years since we stayed there. But, yes, it really was fun. The saloon is a hoot, built around a huge boulder. If you can be there for more than just one night, the Amerind Foundation Museum is maybe a mile away.

Hi again gomez

How about the Gilbert Ray Campground? It's very close to the Arizona Sonora Desert Museum. There are electric hook-ups, but no showers. We tent camped there for a few nights and really enjoyed the location.

No camp/RV sites at Saguaro NP East or West except backcountry. Have tent camped at Gilbert Ray 5 or 6 times and highly recommend the campground but only if you like scenery and wildlife. Most sites there are for RVs but tents are allowed to use vacant RV sites. Wash rooms but no showers. Very convenient for Tuscon Studios, ASDM, Saguaro NP West, Tucson Mountain Park. If you need shop, launderette, pool, tennis etc, then it is not for you.
