Arizona Summer Trips Where to Go

Arizonans where to you go in the summer for short weekend/long weekend trips to get out of the heat.

My rig is 34 feet so lots of "campgrounds" don't work for me.

Payson, Pinetop or ?

Arizona where to go

Just about anyplace above 5,000 feet. There are numerous NFS, State Park, and commercial parks on the Mogollon Rim - starting at Payson all the way east to the New Mexico border.

The Flagstaff area also has numerous places to camp in the cool pines. Arizona is a great place to camp!

At 38' actual length, we get into most CG's - private, state, etc. A bit of snug fit sometimes, but doable.

Williams or Page would not get you out of the heat. I'll second that the North rRm of the Grand Canyon would be the coolest. Just before the park entrance there is DeMotte national forest campground that our 40' motorhome fits into and just beyond DeMotte on the right is a good dirt road that will take you to many beautiful boondocking spots. There is also good boondocking around Mormon Lake, just south of Flagstaff. Also, from Payson over to Show Low and many forest service campgrounds that you'll fit. Get to know your elevations in AZ and you'll find lots of spots. Your 34' will fit more places than you think! We love those kinds of spots with our 40'.
