The only thing keeping this campground from being a 10 is the lack of sewer hookups. This is a Maricopa County Park and limited to a 14 day stay. The campground has some ranger led activities and great hiking trails. If you prefer the great outdoors you will love this campground. We camped at Usery Mountain Regional Park in a Fifth Wheel.

We planned on staying here 2 nights and ended up staying 5. We had just begun a month-long caravan with friends in another rig and this made for an excellent start. A highlight was our evening campfire at our site beneath a giant Saguaro cactus with my cowboy music playing into the night. Sites are very large set within beautiful Sonoran desert flora. Bird life was amazing, and coyotes howled nightly. A true wild west experience just outside of Phoenix. A fabulous, easy mountain bike ride through the desert is close by in the park, and the hike to Wind Cave is one of the most popular in the Phoenix area. Staff was friendly, and the showers were fine, which was appreciated since with no sewer hookup we had to conserve water to avoid a mid-stay dump (there is a dump station here). A brand new freeway (Loop 202)into Mesa and Phoenix is only a few minutes away. Next time we have to stay in the Phoenix area we will bipass those yucky RV parks in town and stay here, sewer hookup or not. We camped at Usery Mountain Regional Park in a Motorhome.

Very nice CG in a desert setting. Beautiful views at night, great hiking trails! Spaces are spread out and each has electric/ water along with concrete table, bbq, fire ring. Showers/ restrooms very clean. Hosts do a great job keeping place clean. Will probably be back! We camped at Usery Mountain Regional Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Absolutely beautiful desert location, enormous gravel site with table and fire ring. Great vegetation and mountain views. The best campground we've been in in 20 months of fulltiming and over 120 campgrounds! Only lack of sewer kept this from a 10. Saw more birds than we have ever seen at our feeders. Showers very nice. Really far from everythything though. Did a lot of driving in 9 days. We camped at Usery Mountain Regional Park in a Fifth Wheel.

This place is amazing! Wonderful sunsets and sunrise is beautiful! Great desert camping far from city lights so star gazing is perfect! For $20.00 a night with elec/water it's a deal. My own WiFi worked great! We camped at Usery Mountain Regional Park in a Tent Trailer.

Even though this park is close to Phoenix, it is up in the hills to the northeast and feels very isolated. The view of the city lights at night is spectacular. The sites are large and well maintained with lots of space between sites. You are never very close to anyone. It is a beautiful, desert environment, great in the winter but probably unbearable during the summer heat. We will camp here again. We camped at Usery Mountain Regional Park in a Motorhome.

This is our favorite Arizona campground. It's in a beautiful desert setting. All sites are large and private with wonderful views and abundant wildlife (birds and coyote). It's a very clean and secure park. The only drawback is the nearby shooting range which can be heard from the campground. There are numerous scenic and well maintained hiking trails nearby. This park is close to all services in Mesa as well as other county, state, and federal recreational sites. We camped at Usery Mountain Regional Park in a Fifth Wheel.

This is our favorite campground in the US. Very large gravel sites in the desert, surrounded by cactus of all sizes, with a cement picnic table, water, and 50 amp power. The hosts even rake the gravel clean between visitors. There are back-in and pull-through sites that will accommodate any size rig. The dump station is well maintained and easy to access. If the campground is full, you can dry camp in the parking lot for $10/day. On one of our many visits I saw it take two days for someone to get in, but usually there are open sites. The sunsets, sunrises, and howling coyotes are wonderful. There are many well marked hiking trails in the park. I saw a review that said it's a tough drive, but that must be a route we never take. Off Highway 60, drive about five miles up Ellsworth Rd., and you're there. No grades, no sharp turns. We camped at Usery Mountain Regional Park in a Motorhome.

This is a county campground and park that overlooks the city of Mesa and Phoenix Valley from the East Side of Mesa at the start of the Superstition Mountains. Sites are spaced very nicely from each other. You are in a desert setting but in 5 minutes you can be at a supermarket or fast food joint. Don't get me wrong, this is not a senior or snowbird park, but a very nice local campground where the city ends and the desert starts. You can only stay here for 14 days at a time. There are no seasonal guests. I live in Mesa, but took my Trailmanor here for it's maiden voyage. However, I will probably go back because to live some peace and quite. We camped at Usery Mountain Regional Park in a Travel Trailer.

This area is a long, long haul up a mountain and around some big bends. Upon arriving, one is impressed by the beautiful dessert. After driving the loops, one is overwhelmed by the remote, desolate, and isolated nature camping can be. This is not a place for social beings. This is for back-woods, back-to-nature, earth loving self-sustaining types. We camped at Usery Mountain Regional Park in a Motorhome.

This is our favorite park. It is a county park, and its only shortcoming is the lack of sewer hookups. There is a dump station available at the park. Sites are huge, with most sites widely separated from neighbors. The park features stunning Sonoran desert flora, hiking, biking and horse trails, great views of the Valley of the Sun and wonderful winter weather. There is a two week limit, but you can stay longer at management's discretion. You must change sites if you do. We camped at Usery Mountain Regional Park in a Motorhome.
