Central Arizona Wintering Spots

We are beginning to look for an RV site for the 2013-2014 winter season. We've wintered this year at Valle del Oro in Mesa which is a lovely park, but way too big for me.

Since we are going to be in Arizona, I'd like a park that at least has a view of the desert! Preferably, just a few hundred sites.

We're looking at a 4-5 month stay in a 37 foot Alpine motorhome.

Are there any recommendations out there?

You might want to look into what the Parker area has to offer. RV parks on both sides of the Colorado River,AZ & CA. some small and reasonable.
We're on the river, in a park with 200+ sites but because it's spread out we hardly notice the size. We don't get as much wind as some other areas of the desert south west because of the river valley. Down side is it's an old park with limited facilities and decent shopping is 14 miles south; Parker; or 27 miles north in Lake Havasu City.
2 1/2 > 3 hrs from Pheonix, Vegas, Yuma and Palm Springs.
