Home to the majestic cacti, Saguaro National Park is a great place to see these enormous plants while enjoying relaxing getaways away from home. Located in Arizona, this 181 sq. mile national park has two geographical districts - The Rincon Mountain District (RMD), often referred to as Saguaro East, and the Tucson Mountain District (TMD) often referred to as Saguaro West. Both are separated by the city of Tucson.
Saguaro National Park is accessible by vehicles and RVs, however there are six designated campgrounds in the park, all of which are backcountry campgrounds located throughout the wilderness areas. Pets are allowed in select areas of the park.
Saguaro National Park has a lot of beautiful sights to behold. From Native American Petroglyphs created hundred of years ago, to resplendent cacti and beautiful sunsets, you’ll be blown away by the amazing views you’ll enjoy at the park. Hiking opportunities are also abundant in the park, owing to the fact that over 165 miles of trails are available. Flora and fauna observation are also pleasurable activities in the park.
In each of the two districts of Saguaro National Park, there’s a visitor center that provides restrooms, water fountains, maps, hiking trails, programs, and staff to assist visitors and campers.
