Welcome to Arizona. You need to give us some more information. Are you picking up a unit? Looking to rent a unit? 55 or over (quite a few parks are 55 plus). Likes etc.

One of the first thing that I had to got used to was no grass or very little.
Are you interested in planned activities? Hiking? ATV? Museums, shopping?
There are a good number in Phoenix and between to Tucson. This is our usual area. More information will help.

For lack of information try a search on Encore RV Resorts.

Sedona and Grand Canyon are cold in the winter.
Try farther South. Green Valley,Sierra Vista, Benson,Tombstone. These are all smaller towns and I mention them because I don't like big Cities.

Consider the East Mesa offerings. A number of these offer Trips and things to do for Winter visitors. We have lived here for 50 years and have yet to exhaust the sites to see around here. In fact, I just found an exceptional place less than 5 miles from my house.

Unfortunately, you're not getting a lot of individual park recommendations. You might look at Happy Trails Resort in Surprise, AZ. It's huge and has every activity imaginable including the going craze of pickleball. Here's a link:

Happy Trails Resort - Home Page

Most 55+ parks in the Phoenix area are huge, older and have lots of park models so be prepared. You also might want to try the east end of Apache Junction and Gold Canyon.

Folks will suggest Casa Grande also but that area, to us, gets a LOT of dust from the area farming.

Tucson has the Voyager RV, Lazy Days and a couple other nices ones.

Yuma will also have a lot of parks. Those are the 3 AZ areas to check out for warmer winter temps.

As far as a tour or just driving yourselves to Sedona/Grand Canyon - you can easily do it yourselves. They both have Visitor Centers with lots of suggested information for a look-see. Just check the weather report before you go but after today's winds, the weather should be o.k. Have a great trip!

Unfortunately today's weather at the Grand Canyon and in Sedona is really lousy (rainsnowWIND) due to a fast moving storm that is supposed to clear out by tomorrow. After the storm has moved on we will quickly return to more seasonably warm weather.

A fun thing to do is take the Grand Canyon Railway out of Williams up to the Grand Canyon. There are free tour buses that run to all the lookout points along the South Rim.

Funny you should mention Lazy Days, we just returned from a FMCA Rally there, we have been there three times. It's a nice clean, did I say clean campground. The picture of our unit was taken on a site there. Two pools with spa's and laundry facilities. Paved roadways. Great workout room. Restaurant has great food.
