This park is very beautiful, a pleasure to visit, with extensive hiking trails, and wonderful informative presentations by Rangers. More of the park has been reopened, and we felt very safe there; even on hiking trails. Our site was spacious, with a cement pad, cement patio, picnic table, and barbecue. The showers and restrooms were so clean, although the shower water is solar heated - so be ready for a cool shower. The Rangers were very friendly and helpful. We camped at Twin Peaks Campground (NPS Campground) in a Travel Trailer.

The rate reflects a 50% senior discount. Nice, nice, nice. This is an unusually nice campground for a National Park Service campground. The roads in the campground are paved, but the sites are wonderfully level concrete. Nice! There are no hookups. There is fresh water at the dump station and a few water spigots throughout the campground, but it is best and easiest to get water at the dump. The generator hours are very restrictive at 8 util 10 and 4 until 6, either good or bad depending on your point of view. There are solar showers in the restrooms. It is a busy campground, but the sites are well-spaced. They do not take reservations, but the campground was never more than half-full during our almost two-week stay. There is an entrance booth, which was staffed about half of the time during our visit, where they will assign a few site, but they will let you change it if you don't like the assigned site. We were very surprised to find that we got very strong Verizon 4G data and, of course, voice. Satellite was not a problem since there are no trees. The really good news is that the new superintendent has opened the entire park. Previously a large part of the park was closed because of the fear of the illegals coming across the Mexico border. We drove and hiked though out the park with no problems. We camped at Twin Peaks Campground (NPS Campground) in a Motorhome.

Nice NPS CG if you're seeking quiet and solitude. Generators are limited to 8AM to 10AM and 4PM to 6PM. There is also a No-Generator area. Hosts and rangers regularly patrol the grounds so security is very good. Solar heated showers are a bit anemic when there's cloud cover. No services except dump station, potable water, toilets and aforementioned solar heated showers. Most sites appeared to have a concrete pad which helps hold down dirt & dust in the RV. We camped at Twin Peaks Campground (NPS Campground) in a Motorhome.

Organ Pipe Cactus National Monument is a beautiful desert park. Immaculately maintained. I did not see so much as a cigarette butt on any trails or on the road, anywhere in the park. Very quiet (I camped in the no-generator area) and with amazing sunrises and sunsets. Excellent Verizon signal. Spent a week and will certainly return.

Ajo, about 40 miles north, is an attractive town with banks, post office and shopping. The Olsen's IGA market has everything you would find in most supermarkets and an Ace hardware store attached. Beautiful old churches built in the Mexican style, adobe storefronts, restaurants.

Outstanding park at Organ Pipe National Monument. Great campsites with dyed desert brown flat cement pads. Pull through for any sized RV. Two lane dump and water station. Super clean! Nice restrooms with solar heated showers. Giant cactus next to pads. Perimeter walk on the outside of the park with well maintained paths. One of the nicest parks we have ever been to. No WiFi, no electricity. Used ACCESS pass for free entry. We camped at Twin Peaks Campground (NPS Campground) in a Motorhome.

Organ Pipe Cactus National Monument is one of the most magical places I have ever been. The Saguaro and the Organ Pipe Cactus are amazingly large and old. This is the only place you can find the Organ Pipe Cactus. We had a beautiful site at the campground with a picnic table, patio area, and a level cement pad. All of the sites are pull-through. The roads are a bit tight but we have a 38 ft. RV and managed. The staff was friendly and very knowledgeable about the area and taught us a lot. The trails are plentiful and well maintained. There were lovely places to walk your dog, programs at the amphitheater on the weekend, and our Verizon phones and WiFi worked but not real well. I can hardly wait to go back! Rate reflects Senior Pass. We camped at Twin Peaks Campground (NPS Campground) in a Fifth Wheel.

Beautiful campground! Park staff does a great job of keeping the campground clean. We saw them sweeping the pebbles off of a pad next to us. We spent 4 nights here, great place for star gazing & sunsets are beautiful. Very peaceful & quiet. We would return here when in the area.

Beautiful, remote sites in the Sonoran desert: paved, private and pull-through, each with picnic table and grill. If you value nature and quiet over amenities, this is the place for you. Spotless restrooms with camp sinks. Hiking, scenic drives and ranger programs. I had a decent ATT 3G signal, but my husband kept getting a Mexican service, so be careful if you use your phone. If you are worried about the location being right on the border (it is), we saw Border Patrol all over the place on our drive down from Phoenix and over to Tucson. Our rate reflects Senior Pass discount. We camped at Twin Peaks Campground (NPS Campground) in a Travel Trailer.

We came late and slipped the $20 into holder at gate. $12 night plus $8 entrance fee. Found great spot. Nice concrete pad with table. Generator hours 8-10 and 4-6 pm. Its great park in Sonoran desert. Your are camping by giant cactus's. No power, there are water spigots all around but for filling bottles only no connections. Hot and dry. Nice. Visitor center. We camped at Twin Peaks Campground (NPS Campground) in a Motorhome.

A large national park campground. All boon docking, no hookups. Clean flush toilets in restrooms, some with showers. Nice modern dump station with 2 lanes. Good deal for $12 a night. Well maintained with roomy sites. Gas available at Why, AZ and Lukeville, AZ on the border. This is a very remote place, but interesting. If you like peace and quiet this is the spot. Gas station in Why (Why Not) had free Wi-Fi that worked great. We camped at Twin Peaks Campground (NPS Campground) in a Motorhome.

Great campground! Nicely laid-out. Each pad has a very level, long spot for your rig. Surprisingly lots of cacti vegetation between spots. Clean bathrooms and showers. The showers on solar power, so when we showered in April – HOT! Staff & volunteers very nice. Well-kept park. Verizon 3G coverage very good. Gas/Diesel can be found 5 miles south in Lukeville, just before the border crossing, or 22 miles north in Why. We camped at Twin Peaks Campground (NPS Campground) in a Fifth Wheel.

We stayed here in a motor home. We paid the Golden Age passport rate. The normal rate is $12. The park is first come, first served, but park has 208 sites so seldom, if ever, fills (I think.) Each site has picnic table and BBQ grill. Very quiet park. Rangers and volunteers very helpful. Sites are wide and level. A few water spigots scattered around the park so you can add water to your tank if you have device to attach to non-threaded spigot. Climate could be very hot in summer. We camped at Twin Peaks Campground (NPS Campground) in a Motorhome.

An amazing place! Be sure to hike the Desert View trail daily and you'll get much more out of your stay. We saw different cacti in bloom every time. The showers don't get very warm in March, so beware. The Verizon service is excellent and thus we had interned via tethering and could keep up on email and such. Dark here and a sky filled with beauty. Near the the top of my Top Ten List, for sure. We're "Geezers", so paid only half of the daily rate. We camped at Twin Peaks Campground (NPS Campground) in a Motorhome.

Wow! What a beautiful place! Hot showers. No power or water, but the sites are large, level, and gorgeous set right in the desert. February was wonderful with spring flowers with nice temperatures. Dark at night to see stars. Friendly rangers. We camped at Twin Peaks Campground (NPS Campground) in a Motorhome.

This is our second time here in the last 3 years, and we love this place. We do not care for commercial parks- too close together and too expensive. So State, County and National Parks are our choice. This one is absolutely beautiful, spotlessly clean, and has the most friendly hosts. Enough room between sites, restrooms now have showers, and the desert scenery is unmatched. True, there is no AC, but water is available, the dump station is good, concrete pads are pretty level. We'll be back. Don't expect any services at Lukeville though; it's pretty much empty. We camped at Twin Peaks Campground (NPS Campground) in a Fifth Wheel.
