Reservations required in Apache Junction?

This will be our 3rd winter away in the motorhome. The first year we went to Florida. Took about 2 months to tour our way from Virginia to Key West then crossed over to the west side and made our way back up. With stops in Myrtle beach (freezing) Savannah (cool but beautiful), Stuart Florida (hot but beautiful site in a county park on the inter coastal waterway), the everglades (beautiful), Marathon Key (great vibes but crowded), drove the toad to Key West (crazy, crowded place), Naples (the 2%'ers winter here - and there's a lot of them), Orlando (found out Disney is definitely not our thing) and then home.

The 2nd year was a 5 month tour that included the Grand Canyon, Vegas, Lake Havasu, Yuma Arizona (3 months), Benson, Bisbee, Tombstone, White Sands, Carlsbad, Corpus Cristi, then Texas Rio Grande Valley (1 month). Vegas was fun for a quick visit, Did not "get" Lake Havasu, was very uncomfortable with Corpus Cristi area (oil refinery's). The others were beautiful or interesting places to visit but we were most comfortable in Yuma due to the weather, like minded people and activities.

This year we plan to head west after the holidays and take our time reaching the Apache Junction area of Arizona.

We really enjoy our freedom from responsibility and in all those travels have never made a reservation anywhere. Will that work in the Apache Junction area? Do the parks actually fill up in January? Is the area similar in lifestyle to Yuma?

We have been doing the same fo 14 winters.
We have never failed to find a site when we wanted one in any area anywhere without a reservation....(including in the Apache Junction area of Arizona in '05, '09, and 2012).
