Best Arizona Campground

We are spending our 1st winter of retirement in Arizona. We would like to have a nice campground that has full services. We are Canadian ,so the dollar is going to take a hit.Where to go and not to go.How much can I expect to pay. I love to golf and my wife loves to play cards.

Hi there I live in Mesa, AZ. There are numerous RV resorts here in the valley, Casa Grande, Tucson, Yuma, etc to choose from. Since I'm a resident here I have only stayed in one locally when we were in the process of selling and moving to our new house. We stayed at the Apache Wells RV resort for three months and enjoyed it very much! Lots of activities, pool, arts and crafts, etc.

Safe Travels and welcome to Arizona!

What do you like with respect of city vs country? We elected to move over into California (a bit warmer) around El Centro (Rio Bend RV and Golf Resort, 8 miles west of El Centro) which has a nice 9 hole golf course. It is in an agricultural area, so no concrete jungle for us. El Centro is about 60,000 population and has al the services including Costco, Walmart supercentre, etc.

We looked in Yuma (too windy), and Phoenix/Mesa/Apache Junction but did not find one for us. The row on row of park models etc was not appealing for us. It was a large city feel.

Hope that helps a bit.

The 'best, full services, golf and the Canadian dollar' can't be found!

However, if you want to 'try', I would try the Yuma or Parker/Havasu City areas. Mesa/Phoenix/Apache Junction or Tucson areas will be more expensive. Good luck!

We like the Mesa area. It's just at the edge of the Phoenix metro area, so the traffic is not too heavy, but there are many nearby amenities. You might consider spending a month at a time in various locations, to see what you like best and give yourself some change of pace. Note that it's already fairly late in the season to get long-term sites at many parks.

Tucson has great climate, little dust. The average monthly park fee is $550-650 per month. Most are plus electric. We have stayed at South 40 Ranch, Desert Trails, Justin's RV park, Whispering Palms. They are all great. We tried Yuma, if you have any breathing problems or allergies I would avoid it. Otherwise Yuma is nice.
