Best place to spend the winter in Tucson?

We are lucky, hopefully next June we will take our RV, and start full timing. Next winter we are going to spend in Tucson. We are leaving on vacation Sunday, flying out there, and will spend several days looking at RV parks to spend the season.

I would appreciate any recommendations, or for that matter, any input on places to stay away from also.

We spent a week at the Voyager Resort in February. We made reservations for 3 months beginning January 2013. Everyone was friendly, there's a lot of variety, they have an area for just park models, an area that's mixed park models & rv's, and an area for just rv's. They also have modular homes and a golf course. There were a lot of activities, restaurant, 2 salons (people & grooming) pools, spa, pickleball courts. You could exhaust yourself with all the activities & classes going on. It was also clean and the office staff friendly.

being we live here we don't really know about RV parks but Tucson is a great little town with lots to do.

If you want to get away from a RV park setting for a bit there's a beautiful State Park in Oro Valley off of Rt 77 (Oracle Road) called Catalina State Park. It's only 3 miles from our home but we drive the motor home over there frequently for a break. They take reservations on line - I think the max stay is 14 days. we go there every Thanksgiving. Right in the foothills of the scenic Santa Catalina mountains with great hiking and biking. The entry road is across from a new mall (with a WalMart- no overnight stay- and restaurants) but you would never know it from inside the park

I'll be at the flat track races until Sunday but if you would like some pointers on things to do/see around Tucson send me a PM. My vintage motorcycle club meets next Wednesday at The Barrio Brewery if you're into that kind of thing.

I second Catalina State Park. We have spent time there each of the last 4 winters. DW's sister lives about 5 miles from the park, so it works well for us. There is a two week limit, the park became reservation-able about this time last year. Temps in the park are about 8 degrees cooler at night than at sister-in-law's house. You would never know that civilization is so close when set up in this park. All spots are very long and wide. All have water and 50 amp electric, sewer is centralized with a total of 3 dump stations.
We are staying home this winter, otherwise I'd be making reservations right now!
