Need Campground Recommendations for Phoenix Area

Got to stay in the Phoenix/Tucson area for 10 days. Anybody got any recommendations especially around the Casa Grande area just south of Phoenix. If you have some that you have had bad experiences at you can send me a email at mike.c@mindspring.com if you don't want to publish negative data.

Thanks in advance

I've never stayed in Casa Grande because it's only 30 minutes from home, but I recommend you take a look at some of the ratings and feedback on RV Park Reviews :: Casa Grande, Arizona ( AZ ) - RV Parks and Campground Reviews.

Also I haven't stayed at the FamCamp Davis Monthan AFB, Tucson but I hear it's nice (and inexpensive).

we have not stayed in Casa Grande either, Not sure if its still open, but Beaudry in Tucson has a nice park if you can't get in the base. KOA east of Mesa is nice too.

There are a number or RV parks in the Casa Grande area. The largest and most likely the most popular is Palm Creek but not necessarily the best. It's big and impersonal but it is convenient. We have stayed at Sundance and the Western Horizon (as a guest) and enjoyed both stays.
If you stay near Tucson then I would recommend the Beaudry RV park as well. It is well kept and reasonably priced.

We stayed 1 week at Mesa Spirit RV Resort two years ago. Nothing special but it was very clean and the RV space was big.

Florence is convenient to Tucson & the western side of the greater Phoenix area. A very nice park in this area is: Desert Gardens RV Park - Arizona RV Resort Park Campground with RV Lots For Sale and Rent

I guess there are many parks to stay at in area but we have stayed at Palm Creek because it has a lot different things to do inside park. Some people like different activites that it provides and others are just looking for site. It is located just off 1-8 and 1-10 junction. Probably not full since most of park has gone north for summer. I guess you have to "pick your poison"....
Good Luck

A good place to camp at Tuscson is Pima County Gilbert Ray Campground. The views are unbelievable and the camps sites very nice. Close to every thin in Tucson.

We have stayed at Palm Creek Golf and RV Resort in Casa Grande several times, including 7 months this past winter and we absolutely love it. It is huge but we've never found it to be impersonnal as one poster stated. I suppose this time of year might be a bit different though since it will be pretty empty. Anyway, it's a fabulous park and they've been running a special for first time visitors where you pay for one week and get a week free, so check into that.
