Campground (NOT 'Resort') near Scottsdale AZ please

Hi folks! I need a place to stay in or around Scottsdale AZ next Presidents Day Weekend. We have a small hybrid (expandable) trailer. Our ideal campground has full hookups, trees and decent-sized sites. Need showers too. We don't need "resort" amenities and are hoping to not have to pay snowbird resort fees. Just looking for a quiet place to stay for 3 or 4 nights for the horse show. Can anyone recommend a place? Thanks for your help!

RE: Getting ready to go

Of course you know when you take out the left handed screwdriver and hammer set, the next time you hit the road, you'll probably need em. Grumpy At our very first night's camp, we were too far from the electrical and had to borrow a 30A extension cord. :S Other than that, it was a GREAT trip.

Getting ready to go

Leaving for first vacation in way too long with DH soon. Since I'm taking DH and the two big Goldens, I'll have an extra 300# of, um, Beloved Companions along. Just went through the rig and pulled out ALL of the non-essentials, including my tea-maker and toaster. WAH! Some of the games. Some of the pots and pans. It came to a surprising number of pounds when you include the extra 15' 30Amp cord, the extra hoses and most of the books - do I really need 3 Good Sam directories in the trailer? Maybe now I'll be able to make it up the hills!

RE: Camping 101

I think the comfort of our rig is inversely related to how rough our earliest campsites were. From rice paddies to tents through the uncovered bed of a pickup truck - suddenly owning a travel trailer or even a Class A makes perfect sense. And if it gets you outside, it's "camping."

Buddy seems to really know what/who he wants, and I'm happy for y'all! But, um, I'm really sorry about your China cabinet too. :-(

US 93 Kingman AZ - I-10

I'm headed for the Phoenix area in a couple of weeks. I noticed that US 93 isn't marked with the "RV-friendly" orange line in my Good Sam atlas. Is there really anything wrong with the road? All that would really concern me is low bridges I think. Has anybody done this road with a rig or travel trailer recently?

Camping 101

Took a 35-ish friend and her 13 yr old daughter camping a couple of weeks ago as they asked "to learn about camping." I took my hybrid trailer; I loaned them a 4 person tent. Also loaned them a 40 deg. double sleeping bag and a lantern. After the first night my friend reported she was "too cold." It turned out she hadn't zipped up the bag, but had just used it as a blanket for the two of them. Dinner #2 was hamburgers on the grill, with charcoal as the campground didn't let us burn wood and we couldn't find any firewood to buy anyway. When asked to make a mound of the charcoal, the teen carefully took them out of the bag, one at a time, and built a very professional-looking pyramid. However, she then did a splendid job getting the charcoal lit. Her mom couldn't understand why we waited until the flames went out before starting to cook. Dinner #3 was pork steaks, again on the charcoal. This time Miss Teen just dumped it into the grill and scooped it into a pile. Very satisfactory. I'm not sure I sold them on the joys of camping, even though we ate s'mores a bunch. I did explain that as far as I'm concerned, camping is what you do so you can enjoy the country: travel, inexpensive lodging, scenery, new places, nature, etc. They both enjoyed watching the stars, the Milky Way and a truly huge number of meteors, but I'm not sure they'll be back around the campfire. It was fun though, and I thought it might make you smile. Have any of you ever "taught" camping to a friend? Not kids or grandkids, that doesn't count. :)

I wish I could be there, but it doesn't look like I can make it. Here's a link to our Albuquerque shindig https://tinyurl.com/nhlwy7c This link goes to a public Facebook album - no FB account needed. Enjoy!
