My partner and I stay at Desert Trails RV Park in Tucson. They have a website. For the price, we like it and they do have lots to do with activities. He used to live in Tucson too and feels it is one of the best. An older converted water park but very pleasant folks. I would contact them soon to see availability. Lots of people return each year.

Smile Southern Tx

Check out San Juan Gardens. We have been going there for 4 years now. Nice quiet park along Business 83 kind of out in the country. You don't have all the city traffic to contend with. From what I have checked out, this is the lowest price place to stay in South Texas.

Tres Rios near Glen Rose, TX is very nice. They have 40or more large pull through sites, I will guess over 150 sites totol. Our 33 class A will easily fit most of the sites without the need to drop the toad. Phone # 254-221-0018.

This is our 9th year in the RGV in Mission, TX and our 8th Winter at Pleasant Valley Resort. The weather is 10 - 12 degrees warmer, since we are much further south. The cost of living is much cheaper with 2 Sam's Clubs and a Costco. There are literally 100's of RV Parks and naturally we like ours best. Reasonably priced and a very friendly, active park. I recommend pick a park in an area then you can look around and compare. Next year choose a different area and look around there until you find one that suits you.

I love the Voyager. It has a lot of workshops for many art pursuits run by volunteers. Workshops for minimal fees and lots of experienced mentors. There are also all kidns of sports... Many musical instrument clubs... Games... Entertainment... The pools gym etc... Not sure how it compares with other resorts... Someone suggested there and I have been 2 years in a row

Snowbird Arizona

We are full time RVer's in a 40' 5th Wheel. In the winter we stay at Paradise RV Resort in Peoria/SunCity Arizona. It is the northwest Phoenix area (not in the big city). We love it there. There's tons to do and the shopping is great. Golf courses everywhere, some private some public. It's a Thousand Trails park as well as Passport America but you don't have to belong to either to stay there. They have daily, weekly, monthly and season rates. This coming winter will be our 4th year staying there.

Smile Great RV parks in Tucson

We spent many winters in Tucson and our favorite RV resort was Rincon Country West. We met so many wonderful people who are still friends to this day and the amenities there are unequaled. There are all sorts of classes, huge swimming pool and spa, and many social events.
Also - if you would consider Casa Grande, AZ - half way between Tucson and Phoenix - Palm Creek RV Resort is another wonderful park with an 18 hole golf course. We loved it there also.
I would definitely choose AZ over the Rio Grande Valley as it is much more beautiful with mountains and wonderful colors at sunset. The Rio Grande valley is flat and is not very visually appealing.
Hope this was some help.

I totally agree.... this is a wonderful place.

Texas rv parks

I have been to RGV a few timeseconds and I concur about Llano Grande. Tropic Winds also looked nice and the spots are big and the Mgr seemed receptive. Texas Trails looked good as well. JMHO

We have been going to Hill Country Resort & Park in New Braunfels, TX. We are 35 or 40 miles from Austin and about the same from San Antonio.

In our 10 years of full timing, Palm Creek, in Casa Grande, AZ. is the by far the best park we wintered at. Immaculate, excellent management, and boundless activities. A short drive to Phoenix, or a 1 hour trip to Tuscon.
