We are planning to go to Arizona next year for the winter months. I would like to know where we should go for sure and which months are the best weather. We are in the Rio Valley in Texas this year and the weather is very depressing, so planning for the next season helps chase the blues away.
Thanks,

We spent much of January traveling around various parts of Arizona to try to determine a good place to stay, but we were unable to come up with a good location. We, too, are interested to see what answers you get to your question.

Some of the popular locations are Phoenix/Mesa/Casa Grande, Quartzsite (if you are into boondocking you can stay in the desert for $140 for Sept. 15 through April 15), and Yuma. These seem to be the warmest areas, but I'm sure there are others that we look forward to hearing about.

Perhaps others have some ideas here --- what about the Cottonwood (Verde Valley), Prescott or Wickenburg areas. Perhaps winters are too cold for what you're looking for, but all are beautiful!

I can recommend Tucson. I guess it depends on what your financial considerations are, too. We've stayed, for a brief time, at The Voyager RV Resort. It was a bit pricy for day-to-day stay (3 nights), but some friends of ours bought a park model there and spend about 4 months of winter. It has a lot to offer in the way of amenities, including grocery, laundry, golf, swimming, etc. Check it out: www.voyagerrv.com/home.html

We spend part of the winter in AZ and part in South TX where we are at the present time.
In AZ we stay in Bouse - near Quartzite and Parker.
Compared to the RGV it's somewhat isolated (20 some odd miles to Parker for groceries) and perhaps isn't for everyone but we like it.
There are two beer joints, a post office, and a convenience store and not much else in Bouse.
One of the beer joints has country music a couple of nights a week though. Of course if you are too upscale to drink your beer out of the bottle they give you a mason jar.

We plan to skip South TX next year and spend all winter in AZ. Bouse for sure and maybe close to Yuma for a month or so if we need any dental work done.

Voyager RV Resort looks very nice. Anyone have any experience with Tucson weather in January and February?

Any other parks in Tucson or elsewhere?

P and S, for the 3rd year we are at Skyline Resort in Queen Creek, AZ which is 40-50 miles SE of Phoenix. It is a quiet park with probably 150+ sites, all of which are FHU and are quite large at 40 X 60. The manager lives on-site.

This year we arrived Oct.10 and will be leaving probably Mar.12.

This park has basic amenities, i.e. very clean laundry, game room, no pool, nor tennis courts. They indicate that next year they will have a woodworking and craft area. The 6 month seasonal rate for '07-'08 is posted as $1500 plus electric. Ken Roberts........

Its hard to recomend someplace since thre are so maney places. Perhaps if you stated what you werelooking for, weather, Area, remote sites, state parks, it would help. I know of so maney places it hard to say.

I live in Prescott, which is 2 hours north of Phoenix....it does depend on the weather your looking for. The warmer weather is Phoenix/Tucson/Yuma ....but there are many, many nice RV parks to choose from throughout the southern part of the state. Casa Grande is a very popular snowbird area. Northern AZ where I live can be VERY cold...including snow.

We stay in Mesa, but we have family there. There is lots to do, but you are in a Meto area. Many parks to choose from and prices are 325-450 per month.
