Early to mid spring is the greatest time of year to visit Organ Pipe Cactus National Monument due to the blooming desert species. Our visit is at late November so we found the very first come, first served Twin Peaks Campground to become pretty empty, that was excellent !

This is actually the only developed campground inside the monument. Days and nights listed below are peaceful, quiet, and filled with solitude. There are many hikes coming from the campground that result in former mines where one can see abandoned machinery, shafts, and buildings. There‘s also two graded, unpaved scenic loops that wind through different mountain ranges inside the park. The desert and campground are spotted with Saguaro and also the infamous
Organ Pipe Cactus, only located during this park inside the US, but prevalent in Mexico. Talking about Mexico, this campground is merely five miles from Arizona’s southern border to Mexico, so border patrol and park rangers are busy inside the park boundaries and surrounding area to stay residents secure. We‘d no issues during our stay. Campground interior roads really certainly can be a crushed, packed gravel, but pads are level cement and long ! Big rig friendly, sites can accommodate as much as 45 foot rigs, and each site is marked using its length restrictions. All RV sites are pull thru and maybe have a picnic table and spacious, gravel patio area landscaped with desert fauna. With more than 200 sites here, about an eighth the strategies are designated as tent only sites. Restrooms, showers and also a campground take one, leave one library can also be found. The visitor’s center, a mile 5 far from camp, is really a must see with exhibits, par film, gift shop, and rangers equipped with maps and details on the park.
