We go to Tucson each year for the gem and mineral show - finding good camping options is difficult - Catalina SP is usually booked out; Gilbert Ray doesn't take reservations and doesn't allow campfires; the private campgrounds are crowded, We pull a 32' 5th wheel with a DRW RAM truck.
Sadie's Retreat was the perfect answer! Quiet, private, plenty of room at the campsite, and we could have a fire (we used our portable fire pit but there is a large fire pit onsite about 50' or so from the RV spot).
Ron was very accommodating - it was a bit tight to get into the site - he moved things and is doing further improvements (we were his 1st guests). There is electrical 30 or 50 amp, water, a large hot tub. We didn't try the wifi but used Verizon hotspot (2 bars LTE) and that worked fine. We stayed 5 nights and would go back.
It was rainy most of time we were there - else, we had planned to ride our mtn bikes on state lands just to the south.
Ron also has a 5th wheel for rent on site which would be a great option if you are travelling with someone else, or meeting someone in Tucson.

Ron was an incredible host! He was incredibly warm and invited us into his house and yard like we were family. We fell in love with sweet Sadie, the namesake for the place. Ron has done an impressive job with the area, he has a flourish for unique art and he yard contains such treasures such as cacti skeletons and incredible antiques. There are many treasures such as an outdoor kitchen, hot tub, horseshoes, and a grill area with wonderful seating. We enjoyed every second staying with him and would be back in a heartbeat!

Ron and Denise were beyond accommodating!! We didn’t give them much notice but they were extremely welcoming and helped us get set up. We had a great stay on their property and our kids were never bored. The grounds were filled with great activities, play areas, and campground amenities that made our stay easy and fun. It was a free-range kids’ dreamland. :)

We spent the day at the Arizona-Sonora Desert Museum, at Denise’s suggestion, and had a blast!

We tried out the RV and it was very well kept and roomy. It was clean and modern and a very comfy place to stay. The bed was super comfy btw!

A great family friendly place to stay. Thank you for a great weekend!

Ron is an awesome host. Very warm and engaging and willing to please. Stayed in the 5th wheel on property and loved it. The place was clean and convenient for the places we wanted to go. Will definitely comeback again.

We stayed at Sadie’s Retreat for four nights in February 2020. We couldn’t find anywhere to park our travel trailer, and found this place and booked it within an hour of arriving.

Ron was gracious and accommodated our last minute arrival with ease. We had full hook ups, it was quiet, safe, comfortable, and we were able to come and go as we pleased.

The hot tub wasn’t functioning during our stay.

Ron was an amazing host and really nice guy. The property was fun, clean and my family had a great time enjoying the trampoline and playground area. We got in late and he accommodated us in his camper which was very cozy, I slept like a rock after the long drive in. We will definitely book again next time we visit.

The space was clean with a lot of nice features for campers. fire pit, wood, tables, access to warm shower, and comfy seating.

There was a bit or road noise from the busy highway and neighborhood dogs, otherwise very good.
