Are you looking in any particular city/area?

Tucson - Voyager, among others.

Mesa/Apache Junction/Gold Canyon (all in Phoenix area) has hundreds. Stay on the eastern side of Mesa.

Yuma is another area for winter.

Some like it along the Colorado River up to Lake Havasu. Good luck finding your spot!

If you want a real treat and like dates. Like those that grows on trees. Try Indio CA. There is an awesome RV park called Indian Waters that is pretty nice. A little pricey but a lot going on. Free breakfast. Nice to meet other RVers. We like it a lot. Plus if you have never been in the southwest Shields Date Gardens is a real experience. JMHO.

We have been at Casa Grande RV Resort since January. We leave March 20th for our home base in Reno and will be stopping in Indio and staying at Indian Waters.

The above 2 and the Wine Ridge RV Resort in Pahrump, Nevada are properties of the same owner who has invested millions in upgrades to former Western Horizons parks.

Love the RV Resort in Casa Grande so much we signed up for 3 months next winter starting in December 2014.

We have been to Eagle View R V resort for many years. Large sites paved, pet friendly, Casino across highway, quiet, borders verde river. No Park Models! friendly people. If your staying in March make your reservation early like June. Its located at Fort Mcdowell N E Scottsdale.

I would think that after this winter there will be a BIG influx of snowbirds in all the southern states.
Make your reservations early !

We stayed in Mesa for the 2011/2012 winter season. The weather and temps. were as close to perfect as you could ask for. The only thing my wife complained about was the fine dust that would get into the coach if you left the windows open. And the car was always covered in dust. I'm not sure the good out weighed the bad, all I know is that if Mama isn't happy I won't be either. She said if we ever spend another winter out west it will be San Diego. I can't complain to that.

I use rvparkreviews to get a feel of what others think. I use one of the weather websites to look at historical weather patterns and temperatures for my time period. I use Google Earth to view the RV park, surrounding area, and individual sites.

Palm Creek Golf and RV Resort in Casa Grande, Az. Check out their website to see all the amenities and things to do. There are "deals" offered for first time visitors.
This is our 4th winter here and we totally enjoy the area. Lots of things to do in and around the area.

Rincon Country RV Resorts - Your RV Resort in Tucson, Arizona We stayed at Rincon Country West (not East) ten years running. We can recommend it to you. Ask for the quads in the rear, grass lawn right outside your front door. Great set up.

Voyager is a little out of town but a very nice set up.

We do not like Phoenix because of some air quality issues.

Casa Grande is between the two, Phoenix and Tucson making each about an hours drive away so that can be handy. Casa Grande is growing and adding facilities rapidly.

If you are bargain minded Yuma is the place to go. Things are less expensive there.
