RV Camping in AZ

We are planning a 4 day RV camping trip in April in AZ. Any favorite spots for this time of year?

Tortilla Flats outside Apache Junction is a nice place to stay.

Well, the Grand Canyon would be an obvious choice. We favored the North Rim due to the topography...very surprised by the hills and forest. We stayed in Jacob Lake at the Kaibab RV Village - nice CG w/FHUs 30A service. From there, it was a very nice drive into the Park - lots of pull offs with spectacular views...no crowds. The drive around to the South Rim was interesting as well. We stayed in Williams at Canyon Gateway RV Park. Not a bad park and was fairly reasonable...FHUs w/50A service. We liked being close to town(buy your fuel in town...much cheaper) and we took a Jeep ride to the top of Bill Williams mountain(dirt and rocky). Very cool view.

The tour of Hover Dam was a highlight for us and although it was 115 degs., Bolder City and the lake were interesting. Lost Wages didn't appeal, so we skipped it and used the money for fuel. A visit to the Painted Desert and Petrified Forest was a nice stop on the way home. We missed a good portion of Arizona that trip and we hope to return to spend a couple months out there...we hope.

The North rim is spectacular! I was there last May 15th (when it opened) and there was snow, snow, and more snow! I was car camping and have a picture of me by the fire with piles of snow all around me! But, you will have to wait until mid May to enjoy it all. It is not open in April, sorry.

And in southern AZ is the amazing Karcher Caverns, historical Bisbee and
the Copper Queen underground mine tour, and the always fun Tombstone.
Don't go to Mexico, they will kill you.

I like the views and scenery around Sedona, as remote and as far away from people as possible.

Flagstaff & the Grand Canyon are beautiful spots also. If you go to the GC be sure to visit the transparent, see-through walkway that extends way out over the canyon. That was quite the experience! When I went about 5 years ago the tribal members were still working on a paved road to the walkway. Check up on that before trying to drive your RV on a narrow dirt path.

You might also like to see the amazing Native American sites and ruins:

If you have kids, they could learn much at these places. I know you're only staying four days, but the Native American sites alone would give you an excellent reason to stay longer or return sooner. :-)

The Tucson area has so much to see and do. There is the desert museum, Sabino Canyon, Old Tombstone and more. If you like to golf well there are too many courses to list. The weather in April will be warm, but doable. Have Fun

We just left Phoenix on Monday. Temps were in the high 80's to low 90's. Way too high for this time of year!

For the weather forecast, I use weather.com. Search Phoenix, AZ and look at the 10 day forecast.
