Morning Zen is a sweet funky spot right up against Saguaro National Monument. It'd be a great base camp to explore the area and is super close to Tucson. Dale is a very friendly thoughtful Host and I enjoyed talking to him. The property has several RV spots with hookups and a few spaces for tents nestled into the cacti. There's cacti here of all kinds so this is a really great spot for someone who adores cacti, like me, so be prepared for desert life if you tent camping. Keep in mind there are people living here and camping here so you won't be alone, but there's a nice community vibe to the place. There's also a covered flush toilet, sink with running water, and shower in a little outhouse in the center of the property. There are amazing skies here- sunset and sunrise are amazing and it's fun to walk around and admire all the giant cacti! Thanks Dale!
This is a very clean RV park with several tent sites. The bathroom is very clean and nice, there are lots of beautiful trees and cacti, and it borders vacant desert land where you can roam around for exercise or with your doggos! This is a great spot right between Phoenix and Tucson, close to each city. As you can see in the photos, this is not a private secluded spot- rather it's a super convenient, quiet, well-kept RV park with friendly hosts, a super cute general store, and a laundry room. It feels safe and welcoming. Thank you!
I really enjoyed my night under the stars on this beautiful piece of raw land. I'm not sure I've ever stayed somewhere so 'untouched' so this was a new experience for me. It was so incredibly quiet, peaceful and serene. As a single woman camping alone, I felt safe here! It was a little tricky driving down the dirt roads to find this place but Ray's directions are on point. Definitely recommend 4x4 so that you can drive onto his property (it's not packed down like the road is). Look out for the red cones on your righthand side right before you come to the last T on his provided map. This is definitely all about a secluded retreat, so if that's what you're going for, this is it! Also, check the weather before you book since it can get cold in the winter in high desert. :) Thanks Ray for sharing your beautiful land!
This is an adorable farm and a nice place to tent camp and very convenient being only 15 min from Phoenix Airport. (but you wouldn't know it!) There's a well kept large patch of grass next to a lemon grove and a couple of trailers that are also available to book on Hipcamp. It is not super private unless no one has booked the other two options, however no one else had booked when I was there so I had the place to myself! It's very picturesque, especially at sunset when the mountains light up orange I adored the farm stand, where you can purchase fresh eggs, vegetables, honey, pickled veggies and more! The tent site also shares access with other guests to an outdoor shower, porta potty, an awesome outdoor kitchen complete with a sink, coleman stove, gas canisters, and even a cooler! There's a great fire pit and picnic table + chairs as well. You can tell the Host really put some thought into this, which is appreciated. Be careful with the directions- Google Maps takes you slightly too far. Right before reaching what Google Maps thinks is your destination, you'll pass some farm stand signs- This is the spot! (see photos of this too). Talk with Janna ahead of time to make sure you arrive before dark and coordinate your arrival time and read her directions so that you drive around in circles. There's plenty of great food options, grocery stores, and coffee shops within 5-10 min in case you don't feel like cooking. All in all- great spot, very beautiful and well kept! Thank you, Janna!
This property is AMAZING! Absolutely beautiful scenery and endless places to explore. The cacti is diverse and stunning but not overwhelming. There are plenty of places to sent up a tent and Donna has cleared a few large areas for RVs. There are also fire rings and plenty of privacy. Donna lives on the property but you will feel very secluded. I met her dog Jay who was a total sweetheart, but Donna also has lots of other rescue animals on the property. The coolest thing was actual petroglyphs on the rocks here! Getting here off the highway is pretty simple and the roads are well maintained. Come here for seclusion, amazing natural beauty, and stunning skies.
Becky and her husband are the kindest hosts. They accommodated my request very last minute (day of), and even stayed up for me when I arrived much later than planned. Because I have a sleeping set up in my car, I didn't get a chance to test out the hay loft, but I did take a few good long walks throughout the idyllic property and can say for certain - it is absolutely beautiful. There are plenty of grassy flat areas for pitching a tent and the yard is immaculately well kept. There are two friendly outdoor dogs which was a perk for me and my pup! Thanks for the coffee, the hospitality, and friendly welcome! It was very much appreciated.
Staying here was such a treat on my long camping road trip. I didn't do enough research before booking this so when I arrived and found out I had a whole camper to myself, I was so pleasantly surprised! The camper is perfect and has everything you could need.
Craig is a wonderful host and I really enjoyed his company (as well as his son and dogs!). He directed me to a beautiful spot for swimming on Flathead Lake which was perfect. My dog got along really well with his, and I enjoyed watching them play. Craig even helped me hose my dog off when she got muddy from playing so hard haha!
It's very easy to find his place (follow the directions to the T), and the location was really convenient for exploring the Whitefish/Flathead Lake area. Amazing view as well! Can't recommend this place enough and hope to visit someday again! Thanks Craig!
