Gary, are you looking for one spot to stay all Winter, or various spots in the Tucson area that would require moving every couple of weeks? We spend a fair amount around Tucson in the Winter, but not at one dedicated RV park. Several come to mind. Gilbert Ray, a State Park, I believe, is a little out of town but well worth the drive. And of course Beaudreys, for all the bells and whistles. Up the road a bit is Pacheco Peak State Park, great scenery and hiking. We need to know a little more about what you are looking for.

We are looking for a place to stay put for Jan and Feb. In the past we went to southern Ca, but thought Tucson looked interesting and is closer.

Gary, Voyagers is a nice place. No old junkers and the people are decent.

You're welcome. I also checked out Rincon West. It was nice and I imagine Rincon East is equally nice.

I wouldn't stay at Prince of Tucson. Right next to the freeway noise.

If you go to Google Earth and search "rv parks Tucson Az", you'll get a whole bunch of hits. 30-40 at least plus you can see where they are located. You can zoom in close - very clear satellite photo.

Weather was always nice except for an occasional dust storm. The aircraft bone yard at Davis Monthan Airbase is REALLY neat.

We are spending two weeks next January in Benson near Tombstone at Pato Blanco CG. We have never stayed there but it sounds nice. Then onto Apache Junction for 5 weeks then who knows. Word of mouth is better than the directories for real information, just remember we all like different things. For a whole winter (for us that means Jan, Feb, Mar) I like a lot of activities i.e. a "resort" for sightseeing, hiking, and shorter term visits I prefer a campground environment. We also want to try boondocking on some public lands this winter. Hope you find what you want and have a great winter.

Teach -

I'm heading to Tucson for November and possible December as well. I want to move west of Phoenix after that . . . I think. Where did you end up staying? I'm looking for references for places . . . you just can't tell by the website.

Thanks!

If you are retired military, or Federal Employee Davis Monthan AFB has a 144 space full hook-up (FHU) RV park located on the base that costs $17 - $21 a night. They have a 21 day stay in FHU area, most that winter over, move to overflow area for a few days then back into FHU area. Base is located inside of Tucson City Limits convenient to everwhere. Great golf course for under $20 a round with nice practice area. Here is a link for further info Agave Gulchif you qualify for access to the base.

Spikester - thanks!! I called and they said to check in with them a few days before heading that way but that November wasn't usually bad except around Thanksgiving - same with December and Christmas. I'll probably stay there so I can use the base gym . . . retirement does have it's perks, huh?
