Southern AZ

almost done with all repairs from last years storm(hail damage) to house, all I need now is new storage/shed and I think shed can wait for a while. D/W an I need to get away for a few months (3), we were thinking of South AZ. or about. I am a KOA member but only use them when I can`t find a nice place to stay.
So, how is weather around Tucson or Phoenix? Any nice camp grounds.
Oh!!, 30ft c-class with towed pickup and a Winnie dog.
enjoy walking dog and sight/seeing .
thanks

If you like a big city, either will do. I personally don't care for Phoenix. Tucson is a few deg. cooler than Phoenix normally, and is not so spread out and more laid back. We winter in Yuma, southwest corner, warmest place in state, real southwest feel and Hispanic culture. Lots of snowbirds. Other places to consider: Benson-Huachuca City-Sierra Vista area; Lake Havasu City; Parker, which have good facilities and decent level of amenities. A sprinkling of KOA's around, but I never consider them for extended stay. I usually don't consider them at all actually.

We stayed at the Lazydays KOA in Tucson in Feb. 2014. Very nice, would go back next time in the area, $40/night. Much to see in Tucson: Air Force "Boneyard, Biosphere 2,
Titan Missile Museum south of Tucson. See our blog:

It is only 150 miles farther to Yuma. Lots of campgrounds at reasonable prices. Warmer than Phoenix and cost of living is lower. 8 miles from Yuma to Los Algondones where you can get your dental, eyes and prescription drugs. If you need any dental work done your trip south will be paid for in the savings.

Another endorsement for the Tucson KOA. Right in the middle of everything.

Plus, they have a large dog walking area. While are puppies were with us, it was noses to the ground at all times. "I thought those times would never end".

We like to stay at Saddle Mountain RV Resort about 25 min west of Phoenix, not KOA but if you have Good Sam or Passport they have a heck of a discount, nice park with reasonable prices.

We are staying at Pioneer RV resort, 36408 N Black Canyon Hwy. Phoenix, AZ 85086. Phone: 1-800-658-5895. They have a club house with games, Bingo, etc. A indoor swimming pool. The pull through sites are roomy with full hook ups.
The price is $399 a month when paying for three months in advance.
I do not work for them, I am just staying here until the end of March.

I live in Tucson, so I'm a little partial. Tucson has some very nice, less expensive CG's to stay in. Look into a few, one is right off Houghton Rd. just north of the I-10 freeway, and the other is at Kolb Rd, just south of the I-10 freeway. Cactus Country is the Houghton Rd, and Voyager is the Kolb Rd. one. That's just two, Cactus Country is a smaller place, and Voyager is bigger, more upscale. Like I said, that's just two. If you're military, there is a FamCamp on base that's not too bad. Always a trip going somewhere from there. If you wind up in Tucson, contact me, and I'll do what I can for you. debtanker@msn.com is my email. I work on the base at the Boneyard.

That one is on my "to do" list. I like the location, out in the country but close enough to all of the needed facilities. Nice layout with plenty of room between spaces and lots to see in the desert around that area.

Rincon East in Tucson. We have been staying here since 2008. We usually stay from November to April. There are many activities and the people are very friendly. There are many activities and the weather is usually pretty good.

One of my favorite places in the Phoenix area is Eagle View RV Resort, Fort McDowell, AZ. It is near Fort McDowell Casino, Fountain Hills and Scottsdale.

They have really great facilities and it is quiet and well maintained.

We are attending the Escapees RV club Rally at the Tucson Fairground Mar 8-13. We are arriving a few days early and would like to know of a good Campground near by. Nothing special just fhu and good security. Was thinking of the Lazy Days KOA but have no idea how close it is to the Rally site. Any help is appreciated. Thanks, TM
