I am looking for a RV site for the winter in Arizona

I want to go south about the first of December and stay for 4 or 5 months. I have been looking at a lot of parks on line the last few days and don't see hardly any I would want to stay at.
Phoenix area would be good. Anyone with personal experience, please share with me a name and general location and I can find it and read the reviews and website info.

One of our "HOT SPOTS" in AZ is the city of Tucson.
We have not picked a CG. Most are pretty good. One Resort has a garden RR.
Love to play with the trains.

Rincon Country RV Resorts - Your RV Resort in Tucson, Arizona

Really nice park in Tucson----we stay there with many friends and have the past nine years. IMHO avoid Phoenix, bad air literally.

thanks RV Friends,
I have been reading RV Park Reviews for a week and can't seem to find anything good about all those parks. Most all reviews are negative.
I'm Thinking maybe Yuma would be a better place to look. they have lotsa parks there and most are very large.
Anybody have info on Yuma specific parks?
thanks Bebop Bill

We love the Tucson area. We stay on the very south east edge of Tucson. Cactus Country is surrounded on all sides by desert. They have lots of activities, and planned trips if you want. Moderate priced. 2 miles south of there is the county fairgrounds, full hookups, not bad for 400.00 a month. If you decide on the Tucson area I will let you know some of the best places to see.

You might want to check out some in the Mesa area. Seems like a lot to do in that area and close to Phoenix.

Remember also that most folks go to forums of all kinds to complain about something (or ask for help) so these sites will always be out of balance with bad vs. good.
There are excellent parks in the Casa Grande, AZ area which you might want to consider if you want to be near Phoenix. Tucson has many places as well. Yuma is very cheap if you want an extended stay but then you are stuck in Yuma! (No flames, please! I don't like Yuma and I don't need Mexican drugs so I choose to park elsewhere.) I also don't like Quartzsite. So shoot me!

Gotta agree w. Bill Adams (above). Check out the Casa Grande area. Good central locale w. easy access to Phoenix, Tucson, even the Colorado River area.

You gotta love how a town name takes truth in advertising to heart, i.e. Casa Grande = Big House, considering all of the prisons in the area. Gotta love the weather too!

If this is your first year of heading south for the winter you owe it to yourself not to just lock in on one area and then go there. As you can see by the posts everyone has their own opinion. But take that for what it's worth, it's just someones opinion. What suits one person may not suit others. Plan on going to several areas and then explore each area to find out for yourself what it has to offer and if it suits your needs. We have tried all of the areas and kept gravitating back to one area in particular and now tend to spend most of the winter there. Where it is is not important what is important is that we like it. We have seen people go south for the winter and go back home disillusioned but they have just gone to an area where friends have told them to go and haven't experienced what south east California and Arizona have to offer.

Unless you got your heart set on Arizona you might want to give Las Vegas a thought as well. Start in the north and work south. I've lived in Tucson for two years in stick house, Phoenix for 4 years in an RV and Las Vegas in both stick houses currently and an RV twice in the past. We're not really into the entertainment scene, but, even after 26 years, still enjoy the lower cost of eating out and the local sights. As mentioned above, all RV parks get bad reviews of some sort. There's one local "RESORT" here that starts out at $75 per night and goes up from there, yet I have read several complaints about them as they don't allow Class C units. Oh well, I don't speak $$, so I have stayed at either the casino parks or out at the Nellis Famcamp.
