We began our month-long stay at the SKP Saguaro Co-op on a trial basis, taking advantage of their $50 first-visit special. We stayed because the park is really nice, with beautiful people, beautiful views, and the price was right for a longer term stay. Their weekly rate was $110 plus electricity, which broke down to about $19/night. If we hadn’t already made non-refundable reservations for our next stop, we could have stayed a few days longer and taken advantage of their monthly rate of $330 plus electricity. For members who prefer to dry camp, there’s a paved parking area where you can stay for only $5/night.

SKP stands for Escapee’s and this is a member-owned co-op. When property owners leave for any length of time they can return their site to the rental pool for the duration of their absence. We stayed in one of these sites while the owner was away.

Sites are spacious and nicely landscaped. All are 50 amp and full-hookup. There’s a large laundry room, a club house with events and activities, but no pool or hot tub. You can walk out one of the back gates to miles upon miles of hiking trails.

This park is only about 40 minutes southeast of Tucson, and similar distances from Tombstone or Cochise Stronghold in other directions. For nearby shopping, there’s a Safeway, Walmart, and Ace Hardware.

We’ll stay here again when we’re back in the area. Learn more about this great park here:
