PHOENIX — A buy one, get one camping promotion will be available for outdoor enthusiasts at four Maricopa County parks from Oct. 1 until Nov. 10.

Participating parks include Cave Creek Regional Park, McDowell Mountain Regional Park, Usery Mountain Regional Park and White Tank Mountain Regional Park, according to a press release.

During the duration of the promotion, park visitors who pay a camping fee for one night or more will 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,” Maricopa County Board of Supervisors District 4 Chairman Clint Hickman said.

“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.”

Reservations made online or booked prior to Sept. 1 are ineligible for the promotion.

To qualify for the promotion, reservations must be made by calling: (602) 506-2930.
