Many parks in the area offering deals Sept > Dec. In Jan and Feb they are usually full.
If you don't want to be heading home till March or April , best to have a reservation somewhere for Jan/Feb.

Cocopah in Yuma, we stayed there last winter for a month. they had 4 brand new Pickleball courts, the courts were new to the park witch is mostly a golf park but wow did we have fun playing Pickleball. We played every day and had a blast. In fact on our last day we checked out by driving the motorhome over to the pickleball court to play our usual 9am game and say goodbye to all the gang. The weather is wormer there that any other place in AZ

In Jan you may want to be in Yuma area , it is warmer. Bounce around you got wheels try several places talk to fellow travelers everyone has a different perfect place. We stay in Yuma Jan Feb then travel some usually end up in Tucson for a month. Next year you may know the place you want to be for 3 months.

We stayed 2 months in Quartzsite this past winter, We really liked all the tents (Jan, Feb) with every thing from soup to nuts.
The park we stayed at... Well lets just say never again.
We headed down to Yuma, like your in a different world very friendly and lots of stores like back home. We stayed at a park with a poster on this site.
Nice park , We liked it
Next fall we are leaving in October and staying thru April.
I can't wait.
If you have questions feel free to ask, someone will have a answer for you.

...and Yuma puts you within 15 minutes of Algadones, Mexico, for cheap meds, optometry, dentistry, etc.

I have a close friend from way up north who has been going there every year for stem cell treatments to treat her MS, which has prolonged her life by about 10 years, so far.

Bring your passport!

Also, about 45-60 minutes into California are some really nice natural hot springs on BLM land. I think it is only like $15 per year (would need to verify that price) to stay there. I visit them every time I go to Yuma, very relaxing.

In December we will be returning to the Voyager in Tucson for our 4th winter season. I like this place because you can be a busy as you want or not. There is the variety of park models, stick built houses, modular homes, rentals and rv's, yes it's huge. Everyone is friendly and no one cares what you stay in. Huge pickleball community, lots of other activities, 9 hole golf course, 3 pools, entertainment.

We've been wintering in and around Quartzsite and Yuma for 5 years. Warmest winter spot in the southwest. You can have some chilly days, and it can get windy in Jan. and Feb.

We like Cocopah RV and Golf Resort in Yuma. I golf and they have 4 very nice new Pickle Ball courts and a couple of tennis courts, and it is a very nice resort with all of the amenities. It is right on the Colorado River and close to California and Algodones, Mexico, on the west end of Yuma, and close to downtown and numerous restaurants and shopping facilities. For Pickle Ball fanatics, I would recommend Fortuna de Oro on the east side of town. We spent two weeks there last fall. They have 6 or 8 very nice Pickle Ball courts and several as nice tennis courts; happy hour every evening; a restaurant; an "okay" golf course, and all the other amenities of a good RV Resort. Nice restaurant and shopping facilities are also nearby.

Can't go wrong with either place, and there are several other resorts in Yuma, but these two fit the bill for what you are interested in. We have spent time in Tucson, and it's a nice place, but it is not as warm as Yuma in the dead of winter.
