Melanie is an amazing host, great directions and communication. The camp ground is right in the middle of town, walking distance to stores, restaurants and entertainment. The site was clean and the whole place has a great vibe. Our dogs had a great time too. We totally will be back.

This place is magical, with hiking trails and Sonoita Creek access very near. Melanie was a delightful hostess.

The campground was clean and wonderfully small Melanie was a welcoming host . I would stay here every time I visit Patagonia

What a great hidden gem! Patagonia was amazing, and it was so nice to come back to Melanie’s property and have hot outdoor showers, and laundry, and everything close by. She was also very helpful and communicative. The javalinas are so cute too, be considerate of them at night.

Good setup for a tent. Indoor toilet was a bonus. I loved the outdoor shower.

We'll be back!!!
What a gem of a campsite! Small, clean, quiet, and wonderful amenities. It has full hookups at each site, which is huge! Walking distance to everything you need in town, and the Hummingbird Sanctuary is down the street. There is a very clean bathroom, as well as an outdoor shower with hot water on the property. A table and chairs in the common area are situated around a fire pit, which one of the guests lit one evening. We sat around with some of the guests and enjoyed the company and the fire. Melanie was a great communicator, good directions/instructions, etc. and Mary Sky was the wonderful host who checked on us and made sure we had what we needed, since Melanie was out of town. Can't recommend this place enough, we'll be back!

The Retro Trailer
This camper was perfect for a getaway to Southern Arizona. The bed was very comfortable. The trailer immaculately clean and well appointed, and you're walking distance to everything in town. There is a little yard for your pet companions as well.

It's amazing great hook ups and set up. Close to hiking birding and town. Great amenities .Definitely will return.

This was the perfect base camp for birding in Patagonia. Melanie was a great host, with good communication and clearly written instructions. The campsite is cozy and has a lot of character, and our RV spot was level and wide, It's a short walk to groceries, restaurants, shops, a bakery, the Paton Center for Hummingbirds, and adjacent trails.

Our stay at The Sanctuary at Sonoita Creek was unfortunately cut short but the night we were there was fantastic. It's very close to the center of town while allowing easy access to the surrounding area. We will definitely be staying at Melanie's the next time we are here.

We loved staying at Melanie’s place! She was so friendly and it’s right in town. Would definitely go back!

Sonoita Creek Camping
Melanie's Sonoita Creek Hipcamp is gorgeous, with great amenities like great washers and dryers, bath-house, and very literally unrivaled CUTE and QUIET rv spaces, that still has a community feel. Their prices are perfect. The hosts were easy to reach, when we had questions, and they are very knowledgeable about whereto go, what do do, etc. The hook ups are well oragnized with adapters and some tools even, on site. We absolutely LOVE staying at this location. We'll be here again.

Perfect little sanctuary
Another great time! Melanie’s place is perfect for staying in Patagonia. It’s a perfect little sanctuary and so close, walking distance, from everything we wanted to see. I can’t wait to spend more time there!

Full of Character Nature Deep RV
I just loved this place! They have done such amazing things with this property. So much character and amazing use of metal materials. The outdoor shower was SO nice! Everything you need for a smooth stay is readily available, plus the hosts are super friendly and very helpful. This place gives off a nature preserve feel (trees, birds, other animals) with all the needed RV conveniences.

Great location, great hosts
Mary Sky, our host was absolutely wonderful in helping us figure out where to eat and hike. She led us to great live music. Super quiet, 150 feet from a trailhead leading to other trails. Town is a ten minute walk away. Paton Hummingbird center is amazing, and a ten minute walk. Easy drive to Patagonia Lake. Good wifi and hook ups.

Camping under the stars.
It was very quiet and peaceful for being so conveniently close to the town. Great for biking or hiking the Arizona Trail or enjoying the water nearby at Lake Patagonia in the state park. Will definitely return.

My new favorite place!
Melanie’s spot was perfect. Better than advertised! It was clean, had everything we needed and more and was so convenient to everything we wanted to do. I saw a lot of reviews about the outdoor show and now I know why! It was awesome taking a warm shower outside while watching the vibrant sky’s and getting peaked at by the Ravens and vultures! The cherry on top was our host Sky! She was more help than I’ve ever had at an RV campground and all her suggestions for things to do and see just made our trip that much better. This is my new favorite place!!!!

Great place for group camping
Great spot for group camping. We had a spot next to our friends and my parents rented out the vintage trailer. Lots of amenities in a private campground right in town. 15minutes to Patagonia lake, 10 minutes to Sonoita, walking distance to Hummingbird sanctuary. Hosts were super helpful and attentive.

Awesome location and setup! Easy in and out! Love the outside shower! Great to work with!

Relaxing and peaceful
We had a marvelous time while at this place. We were able to do a bit of nature walking, with our dog, even through the storm we weathered, it was amazing. The site was clean, roomy, and very peaceful. Definitely a place we will go back to! Thank you for allowing us to have the relaxation and peace we were looking for!

The Retro Trailer
Welcoming and wonderful!
We loved our time in the Retro trailer. We'd originally booked a campsite for our own trailer, but due to unforeseen circumstances had to change our plans. We talked to Melanie, who is a wonderful and super communicative host, and she instructed us on how to get the Retro instead. It was perfect. All the amenities of home, in a fantastic town with amazing birds. Walking distance to everything in town, including the Paton's center for hummingbirds. We would stay again in a heartbeat. I can't say enough wonderful things about our time there. Thank you Melanie for a wonderful experience!

Perfect stay in Patagonia
Beautiful and quiet little space. Close to everything in Patagonia. If you’re lucky Melanie will be playing with her band at the Patagonia Lumber Company. We will be back for sure. Loved the outdoor shower!
