“marvel at magnificent cacti”
Organ Pipe Cactus National Monument celebrates the life and landscape of the Sonoran Desert. In this desert wilderness, one may drive a scenic road, hike a trail, camp beneath a clear desert sky, marvel at magnificent cactus, or soak in the warmth and beauty of the Southwest. The monument was part of a movement in the National Parks to protect not just scenic wonders but also the ecological wonders of the country. Organ Pipe Cactus National Monument is the site of cultural resources that reflect long, widespread and diverse occupations by American Indian, Mexican, and European groups. The intersection of these three cultures is significant archaeologically, geographically, and internationally.
Beautiful desert landscape helps to separate the campsites. It’s amazing how many campsites they were able to squeeze in, yet give each spot some privacy. Very quiet in the “no generator” zone. Lots of roads and hiking trails to go explore the scenery.
We managed to get two nights here and would have liked to stay a little longer. It gets pretty crowded as they were limiting the number of campers due to COVID restrictions. It's a beautiful campground with no electricity/water but clean nice bathrooms/showers, although again limited. The sites were paved and level with a picnic table and some privacy. The Park itself is awesome with lots of roads through the desert and mountains and many trails. The Randers were very helpful making suggestions.
