We stumbled upon La Siesta Campgrounds in the Rollin’ Oldies Vintage Trailers Facebook group. The campground was mentioned for its unique offerings – an RV park with electric & water hookups and a selection of vintage campers that can be rented nightly. As fulltimers traveling the country in our own vintage camper, we thought it would be an awesome experience to visit La Siesta Campgrounds for a few days.
Please check out the park review video below – it features the many vintage campers La Siesta has to offer.
Here’s the breakdown
Location: Arivaca, Arizona (55 miles south of Tucson)
Price: RV Sites starting at $18, Tent Camping $12, Vintage Camper rental starting at $65
Date/Temp: Feb 9th, highs in the mid 80s and lows in the mid 40s
Noise: La Siesta is a very quiet campground. Tucked away in rural southern-Arizona, wild life is the most we heard here.
Wifi/Cell: Our phones (AT&T) and our hotspot (T-Mobile) received no cellular data. We did have full bars for making calls. The campground has centralized wifi. We could access it on our laptops from our site and were able to upload YouTube videos and stream from Netflix.
Groceries/Errands: Downtown Arivaca is a few miles away from La Siesta. There’s a grocery store, gas station, restaurant, artist co-op, post office, and a weekend farmers market. Unlike other small towns we’ve visited, Arivaca offers many organic options at the local grocery store.
Dog Friendly: The park is very dog friendly. They allow well-mannered dogs to roam off-leash and offer lots of land to explore. Arivaca also has multiple dog-friendly hiking trails.
Scenery: Rolling hills lush with hickory trees surround La Siesta Campground. The night sky is amazing here, too. With no light obstruction, we could see millions of stars every night.
Entertainment: Buenos Aires National Wildlife Refuge is located a mile away. It offers many hiking trails to explore. Downtown Arivaca’s history and charm also lend itself to exploration. Within a 40 mile radius there are historic towns, missions, and parks for day-trip outings. If you feel like chilling, make a campfire and listen to the coyotes howl.
Overall: We really connected with the vibe at La Siesta Campgrounds. The hospitality is amazing and we have all the amenities that make us comfortable. We highly recommend Arivaca and La Siesta as a weekend getaway or a month-long retreat.
