Buy One, Get One Camping Promotion Returns to Maricopa County Parks

Beginning October 1, Maricopa County’s Parks and Recreation Department will bring back the popular Buy One, Get One camping promotion!  The promotion allows park visitors who pay the camping fee for one night, or more, at a desert mountain county park to receive one night of equal or lesser value for free during that same stay.

“More than ever, our residents are seeking outdoor recreation activities they can enjoy with their families. The county’s regional park system provides a wide variety of recreational opportunities such as trails for hiking, mountain biking, and horseback riding, wildlife viewing, stargazing, and camping in the beautiful Sonoran Desert,” said Chairman Clint Hickman, Maricopa County Board of Supervisors, District 4. 

“While this promotion is not valid for reservations made online, I’d like to remind park visitors that they can still book their spring visit up to six months prior to arrival via our reservation system.

The system allows visitors to take virtual tours of the campsites, view campsite specifications, and reserve their favorite spots from their computers and mobile devices. Online reservations may be made at,” said R.J. Cardin, Maricopa County Parks, and Recreation Director.

To receive the free night, park visitors must contact the Call Center at (602) 506-2930 ext. 1. 

The promotion will be applied to stays booked between October 1 and November 10, 2020. Reservations booked online or before the September 1 launch of the promotion are not eligible.
