Activity/Social AZ Campground for Snowbirds

This year, for the first time, we left our camper in Phoenix and flew back to Connecticut. Our plan is to pick it back up in mid-January.

The Problem?.....My wife LOVES people, making connections, talking, activities etc. I DO NOT. I'm not that much of a solitary crank, but have nowhere near the desire to interact that my wife does.

We plan on going to Quartzite when we pick up the camper, but then, we have no plans. Could anyone recommend an AZ campground with enough of a social/activites program to keep my wife happy but still let me surf the internet and do my own thing while we enjoy the sun?

Any suggestions would be appreciated.

I think she needs the big city snowbird parks. Google RV parks in Phoenix or Tuscon.

Give a look the Mesa, Apache Junction area. Lots of parks in that area. We will be staying at Mesa Spirit. If you have Passport America there are a lot of parks that allow up to one week for the PA rate. This should allow you to find a park that suits you.

Look into Saddle Mountain RV Park in Tonopah, AZ. Lots of activities for her and quiet enough for you.

Good morning, check out Voyager RV Resort just east of Tucson on Kolb road just off I-10. It has everything she wants. My wife loves it, can find lots to do, some with me, some not.

Good luck, travel safe.

X2 on what Firebug5 said. We spent 3 months at Voyager in 2013 and will return this January. This is a great resort for anyone, they have tons of activities, classes, corny entertainment, 9 hole golf course, 3 pools, 2 Jacuzzi's, gym, restaurant, dog groomer, hair salon, computer classes, even political debate, should I go on? It is huge, with park models, modular homes & rv's. You can park among the park models, or with rv's only. Everyone is friendly. We stayed at a park in Mesa and the park model people treated the rv people like interlopers. It's not like that at Voyager. OR you can do nothing at all and enjoy the weather. We stay in the rv only section and love the sites.

Thanks, everyone, for the feedback!!

Looking at the choices, it looks like for activities Voyager will be the place. We'll give it a month, and if things go well and they have room, extend as our whim's dictate.

Look for a Born Free from Connecticut, and it'll be us.

Thanks again

Stan F.

From RI, did you leave the camper in covered storage in AZ? We are thinking of doing something similar.

Uncovered storage in Phoenix. Put reflective film on windows. Got tired of racking up the miles; slowing down and smelling the cactus blossoms.

Gladie: I'm lucky; my wife ENJOYS driving, and I enjoy the "cruise directing". We're basically flying-by-the-seats-of-our-pants travelers. Planning is minimal, so we're constantly surprised.

Some of our most enjoyable times have been seeing a small square on the map that sounded interesting, visiting it and being blown away.

I'm a little concerned about committing for a month ANYWHERE, but, I guess we could always leave. Enjoy!

Do not worry about leaving Voyager, or any of the other recommended spots before your month is up. There is so much to do in the Tucson area, you will be lucky to get your wife to leave in just one month! Don't ask me how I know. . .

Thousand trails?

I'm seriously interested in Voyager, and in surfing on this site (I believe) ran across someone who stayed there with a "Thousand trails" membership for $3/nt.

Looking into the cost for 2 weeks there, it came to about $640 or so in late January. The membership in Thousand trails is $545, and gives us, it appears, those same two weeks for the price of membership, plus more places to stay for free or $3, depending on how much we use our membership.

Am I missing something here? The Thousand trails deal looks too good to be true.

Tanksalotct, you are probably right about your Thousand Trails. That's the point of the membership, that you get to camp for a discounted rate. Go for it!
