We are empty-nesters enjoying our retirement years on our 5 beautiful acres in Marana, AZ. We are conveniently located just 7.7 miles (15 minutes) east of I-10.' *Please note: We do not allow tent, truck, or car camping. All guests must have a self contained, trailer, RV, or camper van with a working toilet. We have full hook ups with a 30 amp electrical service. We enjoy traveling in our trailer and have recently determined that we would love to provide a convenient, beautiful and peaceful camping experience for others! We have beautiful mountain views and are adjacent to the Tortolita Preserve. (2,400 acres) The reserve offers trails for hiking, biking, or horseback riding. We have cleared a portion of our land, far enough away from our home, in order for our guests to experience a taste of desert beauty and privacy. If you enjoy wildlife, know that it is very likely you will see cottontail rabbits, jack rabbits, javelina, and more. You may wish to visit the Ritz Carlton - Dove Mountain which is just a short 6.3 miles up the hill. There, you can enjoy a delicious meal and/or the best of golfing. Dove Mountain Brewing is 2.7 miles down the hill and offers locally handcrafted beer! Enjoy the best beer and grilled food while playing darts or watching your favorite sports team on TV. The best thing about our property is the feeling of being secluded yet having everything else nearby. There is certainly no shortage of things to do and no shortage of desert beauty here at the Wild Burro Desert Retreat! PLEASE NOTE: We do not allow tent camping nor camping in trucks or cars. All guests must have a self contained trailer or RV. Thank you!Come and enjoy beautiful mountain views, lush desert vegetation, peace and quiet, and more! We border the Tortolita Preserve and we have the most amazing sunsets! We offer full hook ups with a 30 amp electrical service. ~ Please note: We are unable to accept tent campers and all camper vans must be self contained and equipped with toilets.  Please be sure to tell us what you will camping in when you make your booking request. Thank you!

Wild Burro desert paradise
Bob & Cindy have set up a little piece of paradise in the beautiful desert. The site was spacious and well equipped with picnic tables, water, electricity, and trash. It was peaceful and the stars at night were lovely. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay!

Thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Wild Burro! Very private, very quiet (except for the coyotes, owls, and other assorted birds). Great access to hiking and mountain biking across Tortolito Preserve across the way. Great road cycling access to the famous Loop Trail as well. Fairly close to Saguaro National Park West & the Arizona-Sonora Desert Museum. Communication with hosts was quick. Site was immaculate when we arrived. This one is at the top of the list for a return visit!

Beautiful, peaceful space
We loved staying at this beautiful spot! It was peaceful and private with nearby (.5 mile) access to a hiking/mountain biking trail. We’d highly recommend this Hipcamp Host to anyone staying in the Tucson area.

Still amazed that this place exists! We loved everything about this secluded spot with the best sunset views. Directions were spot on, welcome sign was adorable, and the box of handy info and snacks was so thoughtful. It is such a gift when folks share there pieces of paradise with strangers. Thank you Bob & Cindy for a wonderful stay.
