December through February in Arizona

We've decided to spend our first "Snowbird" winter in Arizona. I would love suggestions on some great RV Park/Resorts. We like Warm so the lower elevations are best. Tucson and some areas near Phoenix look to be our best bet.
We're pretty active people and don't care to just sit and rock and watch TV, so a place with some outdoor activity features are appealing.
Lastly we're not rich, so it's gotta stay somewhere around $450-$550/month. Less is always good so long as we're not sacrficing too much.
Thanks for your help.
Don & Dar

Hi Don & Dar,

These sites may help you pick: RV Park Hunter - Arizona
RV Park Hunter - Arizona
Arizona Official Camping Guide - AZ ARVC

I lived in Yuma, for eight years, it's three hours from San Diego & three hours from Phoenix. It's low desert, so will stay warmer, at night, than high desert places will.

We stayed there for a week last year and I'd add my vote for it. Unfortunately, we had high winds the whole time but the resort was pretty nice.

We spent 1 week here Cal-Am Resorts - in February. I highly recommend it and it is a good location to use as a base camp.

Thanks to all of you. Unfortunately, we like all of your suggestions, and still can't decide. We may just go a month here and then a month there, etc. At any rate, we'll be there. If you're in the area, look for the Blue & White TropiCal.

In January / February we spent 1 week in Quartszite, 1 week in Yuma, 1 week in Tucson, and 1 week in Mesa. If I was going to stay a month it would be in Tucson or Mesa. A visit to any of the Missions is very interesting and the Heard Museum in Phoenix is a must see. The town of Tubac is an artist colony that makes a good day trip. Sedona is a long drive from Mesa / Phoenix but is a neat place to explore.

Hi Don & Dar, I recommend two great parks on the Colorado River. My first choice is Moabi Regional Park in Arizona located 11 mi east of Needles, Ca. Winter rates are $220 per month with full hookups on the River. This is located 25 miles to Laughlin, Nv., 63 to Kingman, Az., and 113 to Las Vegas, Nv. If you prefer further south, I would recommend Mayflower County Park, located just 6 mi north of Blythe, Ca. Their winter rates are just $250 per month with water and electric. They have a free honey wagon service 3 days per week to empty your holding tanks. This park is 104 mi to Yuma, Az., 150 mi to Phoenix, Az., and 121 to Laughlin, Nv. Good Luck! Mark

We stayed in the Cal-Am park Val Vista Village in Mesa Az, there is more to do there than you can fit into a winter. The park is very friendly and the facilities are all in very good condition. There are 3 outdoor pools and one indoor, tennis, pickle ball, billards, sewing, lapidairy, computer club, jewelry and stained glass classes. There is a post office, library,puzzle room, rooms for cards, ballroom for dancing and dinner shows, entertainment, shuffleboard, bocce ball, fitness center, massage, beauty shop, pretty much everything but a pharmacy and grocery and they are just down the street-can walk or ride bikes there. We find there are great restaurants, shopping churches, citrus orchards, and touring into the mountains and desert in each direction. We love spending the winter here. Have reservations for next year just hope the gas is not going to keep us home.
