Beautiful amazing desert views. Can't be beat for $20 a night with electric & water. Dump station at entrance. You need to check this place out! We camped at McDowell Mountain Regional Park in a Tent Trailer.

Another great Maricopa County Regional Park. 2 large loops with well spaced sites, in open desert with far away views in every direction. Not much privacy due to lack of foliage. Great place to see birds and coyote. You can even see Fountain Hills' giant fountain from some sites. There are many hiking trails nearby but I found most to be loops of varying lengths through the same featureless desert. It's quite a drive to gas and groceries in Fountain Hills, which can be good or bad, depending on how you look at it. This park gets quite busy by mid January. It's first come, first served. We were quite lucky to get one of the last available spots. Good TV reception with an antennae. We camped at McDowell Mountain Regional Park in a Fifth Wheel.

We have used this park many times, first with Travel Trailers and now with a motorhome. It has always been very clean at each site and the bathrooms and showers are excellent. The songs of the coyotes during the night are regular and come with the package. We camped at McDowell Mountain Regional Park in a Motorhome.
