Wintering in Arizona

Looking for a place to winter in Arizona that has cooler temps. Not necessarily freezing but in the 40-50's at night. Based on what I've read thus far, leaning toward the Yuma, Benson area but not sure of the temps. Any suggestions as to area's and RV parks in those area's would be appreciated.

We've stayed in Yuma for the past 3 years and the weather has been wonderful. The only 'cold' time is the last few weeks of Dec into the middle of Jan. Cool as in about 65 - 70 during the day and 40 at night. It starts to get hot around the middle of March - 80 to 90 during the day and 60 at night. Benson may be considerably colder because of the elevation. We've stopped there in Dec and experienced frost during the night.

You mentioned Yuma which is the warmest in winter and Benson which is probably the coolest winter destination for snowbirders. We've stayed in both. Benson can get a light dusting of snow occasionally but will melt by mid-late morning. The days are pleasant.

They are completely different - depends on your needs. Yuma has more shopping and since it's a big agricultural area, can get blowing dust. It has more traffic. Benson is a laid-back western town and has a WalMart & Safeway plus small stores. If you like to do some 4-wheeling or hiking or birding, Benson has it all nearby. We're kind of partial to Benson as it was our winter roost for 10 years. We stayed at the Escapees RV Park which runs a weekly special for non-members to try it out. It's a beautiful park with friendly folks and lots of activities in the clubhouse.

Why limit your self to one place, Phoenix, Mesa, Tucson, Yuma and maybe a 100 more with the temps you want. All havemany good parks, try them all.

Yuma is a cultural wasteland. There is so much more to do in Tucson

Come to Surprise. You will be Surprised?? Sorry for the pun. Happy Trails park. Happening place with every interest you could have. About 10 miles of 55 and older developments. Way to much fun and close to everything. Just my two cents
