Desert Bloom Weekend
When: March 26-28, 2010
All TCT members and interested RV’ers are invited to join us in Arizona for a pleasant weekend of camping at the beautiful Picacho Peak State Park in southern Arizona, March 26-28, 2010. This will be a very informal, “just camping” event, at one of the nicest times of year. Expect sunny, warm weather (typically 70s during the day), with spectacular desert flowers thanks to the rainy winter.
This park is slated to close in June 2010 as a result of state budget cuts, so this may be your last chance to camp here!
I’ll be leading a hike up the Hunter Trailer to the summit of Picacho Peak for anyone who cares to give it a try. (Strenuous, 2 miles, but fun! Bring gloves, camera, snack, and plenty of water.)
The campground has 85 RV sites with and without electric ($20/$15), plus centrally located water and dump station, picnic tables, fire rings, shade ramadas, and modern restrooms with showers. All sites are first-come, first-served. For more info see http://azstateparks.com/Parks/PIPE/facilities.html The park is located midway between Tucson and Phoenix directly off I-10.
Registration procedure: Arrive anytime you like and register yourself with the state park upon arrival. The park may fill up this weekend, so try to arrive early. Email Rich Luhr, firstname.lastname@example.org or call 802-877-2900 extension 3 to let me know you’re coming.
