Arizona resort opinions

My parents decided on a whim that they would like to head to sunny weather in Arizona in the next few weeks. They plan to be gone for a month and they will be traveling from Oregon.

My question is. I realize this is a busy time in Arizona and that a lot of places are booked. My parents don't mind moving around if needed and this would be their first time to Arizona in their Class B.

What resorts/campgrounds do people recommend for a Arizona newbie?

They won't be towing a car, are there places to rent cars?

They are looking at Yuma,Mesa. Are there any other places that they should try to see?

Thanks for the help,

Right now it's not warm so hopefully they'll have better weather and most likely, they will.

I'd recommend one of the Maricopa County parks in the greater Phoenix area or Lost Dutchman State Park in Apache Junction.

For Tucson I'd recommend Catalina State Park.

They could also check out the Coachella Valley (Palm Springs) which has similar weather but a shorter drive than to Mesa or Yuma. Of course Yuma offers great access to Mexico should they need dental work, meds or glasses on the cheap!

I just tried finding a spot for 4 nights in March. Although I finally found one, about the first 20 places I called or emailed either were full or wouldn't rent for less than a month. It is not easy in the Phoenix area in the winter.
