    Facilities were great, easy in and easy hook up. Bathroom was fine. The restaurant was excellent. Great food and great prices. Everyone there was very friendly and helpful.
    We didn’t have the best weather to socialize but it was relaxing to say the least,
    Thank you Ebony

    This was a small quiet campground. Well located for exploring the Arivaca area. Takoya was a charming host. If you stay here please try the restaurant. It will be well worth the time and money.

    We got a primo spot among the fellow Snowbirds.
    I got the idea that bathroom/shower spaces are maintained by the guests. But the water is hot, the cantina gets raves from the locals, and the odd hippie/cowboy town of Arivaca is right down the road. Check out the organic coffee roasted by a musical elf named Dirk. Beautiful area.

    We stayed another night. The area is historic and charming. Great place to meet fellow Snowbirds. The cantina serves soul food!
