We Landed at Gilbert Ray Campground in Tucson Mountain Park just outside of Tucson, AZ, and right next to Saguaro National Park.
Our Travel Preferences
We generally like to travel without reservations and prefer public camping opportunities over commercial RV parks. Occasionally we make exceptions — however, not often. We're okay with dry-camping & boondocking, but sometimes hookups are nice. We also enjoy the unique overnight stops that Harvest Hosts and Boondockers Welcome have to offer. These preferences are the foundation for our "Overall Experience" ratings. A "yellow smiley face" doesn't necessarily mean that there's a pool or jacuzzi or whatever, but rather a stopover that we thoroughly enjoyed. While a "yellow neutral face" isn't a bad thing, we didn't get as excited about the campground as others. We think a "yellow frowny face" speaks for itself.
