Snow Bird Nest campground is a little less formal than the nearby state campground (Gilbert Ray). Beautiful desert setting and there is a gas station, a Dollar Store, a Subway and general market and a few other small stores just down the dirt road. Hot showers in rustic bare wood stalls, which I found fascinating, being from up north where our climate is not so dry! Duke and Sue Bliffert, the owners, are onsite and very helpful and friendly!! The first thing I noticed was the absence of written rules posted around their property, which adds to the natural beauty:) In the morning the various birds get things started, and at night you hear coyotes calling. I spotted prairie dogs (or are they round-tailed squirrels) among their many tiny tunnels, jack rabbits and road-runners. And civilization is closer than it feels; a 24/7 Walmart Supercenter and Harkins Pavillions 12 movie theater and much more (The Coyote Pause restaurant serves a wonderful indoor/outdoor brunch) are just 7.3 miles away, a spectacular and fun drive through desert hills loaded with saguaro cacti.
This place is in the ghetto and run down. Bathrooms are outdated and the shower drains always clog up so you're standing in drain water while bathing. The free wifi is falsly advertised because you cant connect anywhere unless you're parked next to the office. The tv was stolen out of the rec room. Homeless people set up camp in the field next to the park. Questionable people always roaming through the park. The owners husband will bother you for the rent early and in cash. The shoty electrical work has left entire rows of people without electricity in the summer time. The neighborhood is full of hookers, druggies and a filthy truck stop next door. There are much nicer rv parks that are affordable and some are cheaper than this place and much more clean and secure. This place was nothing but a headache. You couldnt pay me to EVER live there again.
Wonderful location! Also has an Event Center and Meeting Rooms!
Great people, beautiful setting, lots of activities to choose from. We visited, we rented a park model for a season, then bought our own park model!!! We love it here.
