Good point.

We've boondocked in the parking lots of medical facilities and hospitals when one of us had tests scheduled and/or surgery performed...(can't get closer than that).
BTW, some had electric hookups and some had both water and electric.

I would like to say, I live in Tucson. Retired from Davis Monthan AFB in 95. I love to read about what others do here in town. I live here and don't go do half of what the visitors do. How funny.


We jump in ours and go to Patagonia Lake, nice place with power and water. Fishing is good at times. We go to Hot Wells OHV area, east of Tucson, and north of Bowie. There are some natural hot springs there, and the BLM built some tubs that run with the hot water during daylight, with solar powered pumps. They lost enough pressure to go on their own a few years ago.


There are a lot of other RV areas around town. If you are retired Veteran, don't forget about the base, the FamCamp is pretty nice.

We just stayed at Lazydays Koa for 2 weeks after the Escapade. We loved the park and we love "2 times a day trash pick-up.... and maybe some free fruit trees" as Mel put it. The restaurant on site is wonderful after a day of sightseeing when you don't feel like making dinner or getting out again. We also took the driving course and convection cooking course at Lazydays during our stay. The driving course while likely qualify you for a discount on your insurance. It was a 10 percent discount for us. Highly recommend!

Thank you for the review of the park and ideas of things to do in the area.

On previous trips to Tucson, to visit my ol Alma Mater UoA, finding a short term RV park was always a problem. I'm glad KOA took over the Boudrey's facility (I think that is where it is) as it will make it easier for the traveling tourist to spend a few days in town.
Oh, I will never knock those who dry camp, but it is not my style.
Happy Trails.

We found the park very convenient to have some repairs done a Lazydays RV. The park is very nice but the walls and concertina barbed/razor wire made us a little uncomfortable about the surrounding area. Obviously not the nicest part of town. Most of the businesses in the area were surrounded by the same. When we left we went up through the northern Tucson burbs and didn't see any barbed wire there. The fruit trees are a nice touch, we made lemon bars from the ones we picked there. Fantastic to have tree rippened fruit.

We ate grapefruit until we were tired of it.

This thread comes at a good time! We're currently in Mesa and the re-repairs on the flooring that we expected to have done next week will not be done until early May...did not expect to stay in the area that long. Now trying to make the most of a forced extended stay!
We went to the Titan Missile Museum which was totally awesome....except the tour guide talked too fast! We may take in the sights everyone here suggested, esp. the different places to stay. It may get too hot but there's always Karchner Caverns I guess

Thank you for the good info!
Someday we will get to Tuson and we too like a nice park.
Sounds like a nice place
