Tucson AZ RV park suggestions needed

Going to be in the Tucson AZ area in Jan-Feb. Would appreciate some RV park suggestions. Don't really need anything extravagant, just a nice clean park with
reasonable rates, whatever that means. All suggestions are appreciated.

We stayed at Desert Trails RV Park last spring. The sites are fairly large and nicely landscaped. It looked like it was a snowbird park, so check availability beforehand since you'll be going in Jan-Feb. Weekly rates were very reasonable when we were there. The campground is adjacent to Tucson Mountain Park with excellent hiking trails.



The campground is also close to Old Tucson Movie Studios and Saguaro National Park.

Hey, vectra400:

Not too many responses yet...huh? Wonder why? We're currently N. of Tucson in Casa Grande and eventually plan to migrate S., but will likely hang out E. of Tucson in the Benson area. It's a bit cooler in the evenings and early mornings, but otherwise a pretty good locale for poking around not only Tucson, but a whole bunch of other fun places, ie., Tombstone, Bisbee, Sierra Vista, Green Valley, Dragoon Mtns. & Cochise Stronghold, Chiricahua National Mon., etc. etc.

We kinda poked around Tucson on one of our previous visits checking out various parks for future reference, but while there are indeed some parks right in and adjacent to Tucson, a number of em were kinda ratty, and we are definitely not very fussy folks.

Hope a few folks have some suggestions. Thanks for posting the question.

Steve & Lynette

Oooops, Hi paz!!

Just saw your post and the pic at Desert Trails. Sure looks nice. Will look it up on-line. Guess WE looked at the wrong parks when we were poking around.

Beaudry RV has been closed by the court. I would want to verify that the RV park was open before going there. I know the total Beaudry facility in Chandler was locked up when we were by there a little over a week ago.

Re: Beaudry RV Park:

Someone on another thread (can't recall where) did indicate that the Beaudry RV Park WAS included in the shut down and is closed as well as the sales and service operation. The adjacent Camping World is open however.

"...pretty good locale for poking around not only Tucson, but a whole bunch of other fun places, ie., Tombstone, Bisbee, Sierra Vista, Green Valley, Dragoon Mtns. & Cochise Stronghold, Chiricahua National Mon., etc. etc." I understand that some of the area is dangerous now days and that it is recommended that you stay of the interstate. Please be careful.

I would have no problems in visiting any of the areas mentioned. I'd certainly be careful about visiting over the border in some of the Mexican border towns, but the places mentioned above are perfectly safe.

We stayed at Justin's Diamond J RV Park in the very back row which backs up to beautiful desert. It's right next door to Desert Trails mentioned above, but has much larger sites. If we were to stay in Tucson again, this park would certainly be our first choice.

We have stayed at Desert Trails twice, in 2009 and 2010. It used to be a water park. It has better landscaping than Justin's, but fills up fast in February.

Tucson has never been a place where we stop for more than a week at a time. But we have stopped there often. Once we found the Prince of Tucson RV Park it became our park of choice in the area. Itís very easy off and back onto the highway and provides the short time visitor a nice base for seeing the local area. They provide lots of amenities and mail service. The sites are not super expensive. Each site has itís own paved parking site which we like a lot.

Here is their web site and a picture of our rig in a back-in site.

South 40 RV Resort is a nice place. They charge by the day, week or month. The have a heated pool,hot tub, laundry room, wireless Internet, and an activities coordinator during snowbird season. Close to the interstate and lots of shopping and entertainment close by.

If you donít require all the fancy amities, then try the Pima County Fair Grounds.
From I -10 exit 275 go South on Houghton road about 1 mile to Brekke (sp?) road turn right (west), entrance is on your left about Ĺ mile.
They canít advertise because it would put them in competition with the commercial RV parks.
