Looking for a place for you and your van to hang out in Tucson? El Pais is the place to be. Come take advantage of our incredible outdoor common space which includes a full kitchen, plenty of seating, a movie screen and a pool!

You'll be parked in along side our collection of vintage cars, across from our common area and the pool! These spots do not have dedicated hookups, but if you are looking to fill up on water or dump out a composting toilet we can definitely help you out. Similarly, if you are looking for more dedicated leisure space, check out our RV spots.

WHAT TO DO

Looking to explore the amazing tacos & burritos of Tucson? All the best spots are within a 15-minute drive of our location! Los Tacos Apson, BK, El Guero Canelo, Anita Street Market, the list goes on. You're only 15 minutes away from Downton Tucson if you want to head into the city!

Make a morning excursion out to the Catalina Foothills to hike Seven Falls or Tanque Verde. Saguaro National Park is a short drive away as well.

ABOUT US

El Pais is a mother (Toni) & daughter (Jade) run motel and campground located in southern Tucson. Although we lack the vast amounts of monotonous concrete and asphalt of most RV campgrounds, we make up for it in comfort and character. Just come see for yourself, you won't be disappointed.

We care about your safety:

- We take COVID seriously. We keep distance, wear masks, and common surfaces are cleaned regularly

- We are committed to creating an inclusive space where all are welcome.

I really enjoyed my stay at El Pais! Toni was an attentive host, meeting me at the check-in counter when I arrived. She helped me find a parking spot and told me about the amenities. The vibe is very fun and quirky. I was able to sit by the pool for a little while and then grab a shower. I loved it!

This place was rad. It’s like an old 50s style resort that still has the charm. The flamingo wallpaper, disco ball, and classic cars really add to the vibe. If that’s not fun enough, there’s a nightly movie played on a projector screen over the pool. staff was really friendly and accommodating. Oh, and the chickens! I absolutely love that there are chickens on site. They just cluck around and say hello, and you can enjoy their fresh eggs. Absolutely love it!

My partner and I’ve had a wonderful experience at this Tucson gem. The staff was incredibly sweet and very helpful. We absolutely enjoyed the outdoor vintage lounge and the retro-looking pool. Not to mention, it’s the simple things like the fresh coffee and eggs in the morning that really seal the deal as well. We met some wonderful travelers while we were there! We fell in love with this campground. We will definitely be back when we are in Tucson again. We highly recommend it! You also feel very safe at night when they close the gates. Very secured area!

Toni is very nice and accommodating. There is a incredible outdoor kitchen that set the Stage for some wonderful conversations with other other travelers during morning coffee. Would stay here again.

This place is a step back in time but also very modern and cool! Such a neat little gem in Tucson. Can't wait to go back and use the pool this summer.

This place was great! Toni was super helpful and welcoming and the amenities were great. There was definitely a lot of thought put into everything, and you can tell the owners are RV people and have experience. Free laundry and showers are a welcome surprise for a full timer. I would definitely stay again when in the Tucson area! Just FYI though, there's a lot of road noise, so if you're looking for a peaceful getaway, this probably isn't it.
