Sonoran Desert & More at the Desert Gardens RV Park in Florence, AZ

Picture of Desert Gardens RV ParkMany thanks to Marcy and Eric Nelson, Managers of Desert Gardens RV Park, for providing us with this post.

Desert Gardens RV Park is a beautiful, undiscovered gem in the pristine Sonoran Desert where you will have “room to roam” on 266 of the largest 40′ x 50′ to 80′ x 85′ fully developed RV sites in sunny Arizona. Each lot has been carefully placed around sensitive cacti and other native plants to maintain the desert environment. The Park is surrounded by the natural desert and stretching as far as the eye can see, colossal Saguaro cacti tower over barrel cacti and prickly pears. The mountains in the distance provide a backdrop for the unobstructed sunrises and sunsets.

In the desert surrounding the RV Park, you can imagine the irrigated fields of the ancient Hohokams, tribes of Apaches led by Geronimo and Cochise, and you may even observe the twilight blooming of the Saguaro cactus flower. Speaking of the Saguaro, the cactus can exceed 10 feet in height and weigh up to 10 tons. Truly a site to see.
