Going to Tucson for the first time

We are on our way to Tucson and have not made any reservations ahead of time. I am wondering if there are plenty of RV parks that would have vacancies and how to find a good one

This place is amazing. You can check for vacancy and/or make reservations online Arizona State Parks: Catalina: Home Stay is limited to 14 days but it might be a good place to land and then look for longer term if that's what you need

The Tucson Gem, Mineral, and Fossil show takes up most of the area from now thru the middle of February, and it can be difficult to find a campground without reservations.

We have stayed at Voyager RV Resort just E of Tucson many times, and I just checked there site and all of the standard sites are sold out. There were a few of the premium sites still available for about $850 per month.

Gilbert Ray campground in Tucson Mtn. Park is similar to a state park in that the surroundings are natural vegetation and gorgeous. It's close to the Desert Museum and Saguaro - West Nat'l Park.

Justins Diamond J usually has a few pull thru sites available.. they are for short term only.. With the mineral show and a huge trap shoot places fill up in Feb. Most of us regulars out here make our reservation a year in advance.

I recetnly stayed at Pima County Fairgrounds. I'd not recommend that. It's inexpensive, but not pleasant. It's close to the eastern section of Saguaro Nat'l Park which is one redeeming quality. I wrote as little about it in my blog post From Austin to Quartzsite.
