To Barbara and others who stayed in AZ. How do you find places? Maybe not just regular campgrounds, but in Fla. we happened upon a few places that had mostly park models with some rv temp sights mixed in. Do they have those in AZ? Is there a website to use to find these? Sorry, but I know nothing about AZ.

Well its amazing, I actually did answer your question but looking back the post is not here. There is nothing wrong with Florida besides I lived there for 20 some years and spent winter there 2 years ago and that's about all of Florida we can take. We want somewhere new and different.Had more detail in the post that's not here.

Check out RVparky.com and/or download the rvparky app. Excellent information when looking for camping where you like to travel.


What I post is my 2 cents and nothing more. Please don't read anything into my post that's not there. If you disagree, that's OK.
Can't we all just get along?

We spent about 4 years moving all over Arizona (that is the desert part) staying about 2 weeks in each area to get a feel for what was available and find out what we liked. We found out we liked Mesa and when we first started out, the parks even during the Jan-March time frame would give discounts to C2C and Passport America. Once we found a park that we liked, we started reserving for 3 months (Jan-March) then 4, etc. until we bought our park model at Val Vista Village (we had been going to spend the winter there) in 2014. In a lot of respects, the parks in Arizona operate like the parks in Florida, a mix of RVs and park models, and they cater to snowbirds who come for the season. Several parks in the greater Phoenix area now offer specials for Sept-December to entice more people to come before Christmas.

What types of things do you like to do? And what is the time frame you are looking for? One of the things to remember about Arizona is that ALL spring training takes place now in the greater Phoenix Area, so Jan-March are 'prime' season and while parks might have a week or two available in January and the first part of Febraury, from middle of February through end of March a lot will be full, so if baseball isn't your thing, make those the times when you go explore other areas of the state.

You might get a wider variety of ideas by putting your question in the Snowbird Section - - you'll get loads of info from all types of snowbirds in every area of the country.

RGV isn't in the SW, it is on the Gulf of Mexico. Southwest = New Mexico, Arizona, California. States are the left side of the Rockies!

I would use rvparkreviews to look at the RV parks in the areas people have been recommending. The reviews will talk about the amenities, ease of access and the area around it. Be sure and read many of the reviews to get a good feel for the park.
