Arizona, Gilbert Ray Campground, Tucson Mountain Park.  The campground is located in a beautiful section of the Senoran Desert with large Saguaro cactus located through out the campground.  The cactus can grow to over 70 feet tall. 


Located 3 miles south of Saguaro National Park (west) on McCain Loop Road.  Directions from I-10 east of Tucson: I-10 west to I-19 south. Exit at Ajo Way (exit 99), turn right. Go west to Kinney Road approximately 5 miles, turn right. Follow Kinney Road to McCain Loop, turn left. The campground entrance is on the left. 

Please Note: Weight restrictions apply to Gates Pass Road.  Big rigs should enter Tucson Mountain Park from Ajo Highway to Kinney Road.  North Kinney Road can be a challenge for large RV's.  South Kinney Road is much better for entering the area.
