Find The Perfect Destination For Your Vacation!
From the twisted beauty of the Grand Canyon to the captivating stillness of the Sonoran Desert, the endlessly transforming landscape of Arizona calls out to travelers from around the world. While some prefer to make a clean trip and fly to an airport before taking a bus to their pristine hotel room, this cuts away at the real wonder of the experience.
The best part of any Arizona trip is the long drive through the rugged terrain. Stopping every few minutes because you saw an interesting desert plant or a strangely-shaped mountain. Passing by roadside diners that have been serving travelers for decades. Making memories on your campervan journey through a strange new world.
But, eventually, you’ll need to find a place to park for the night and settle back under the stars. Whether you prefer hiking hotspots, resort vacations, or sleeping deep in the wilderness, you can be inspired by this guide to the best RV Parks and Campgrounds in Arizona!
For The Ultimate Hiking Adventure
Zane Grey RV Village
4500 E Hwy 260, Camp Verde, AZ, 86322
The amazing Sedona region is famed for its staggering red rocks and colorful cliff faces. There are countless trails scattered around the arid desert mountains and the verdant Coconino Forest, with plenty of archeological sites to keep you occupied. Don’t miss the incredible Montezuma Castle National Monument, a prehistoric city built into the side of a cliff near Camp Verde!
The friendly Zane Grey RV Village is right in the heart of all the action. Close to Camp Verde, Coconino, and the stunning Sedona area, a stay at Zane Grey means you’re never far from a memorable hike. The large, shady Village has laundry, toilet, and shower facilities, free WiFi, and RV supplies. Picnic tables are dotted throughout the trees and the bubbling creek, and a large pavilion offers a shady spot where guests can relax. Full hook-up sites start at $50 a night.
Kaibab Camper Village
Fredonia, AZ, 86022
The Grand Canyon, in all its colorful glory, offers up some of the best hiking trails in Arizona. Stretching for almost 300 miles, there are thousands of interesting pathways from which you can view the breathtaking beauty of the Grand Canyon. From well-worn to long-forgotten, from the canyon’s depths to its highest peaks, hikers will never have a boring day on the ancient trails.
The Kaibab Camper Village is located on the Canyon’s North Rim. Set well away from the tourist-focused South Rim, Kaibab offers campers a chance to explore far more secluded mountains, canyons, and forests. The Camper Village itself is in a quiet and pretty setting, shaded by tall pines. The park is basic, with shower and laundry facilities, but it’s the perfect base for any woodland or canyon hikes. Full hook-up RV sites start at $40 a night.
For The Best Campsite Activities
Blue Sky Ranch RV Park
5510 E 32nd St., Yuma, AZ, 85365
Tucked away on the border between Arizona, California, and Mexico, the town of Yuma is the perfect place for a weekend escape. This region offers plenty of opportunities to hike across foothills and drive through rust-colored countrysides. The spectacular Kofa National Wildlife Refuge is worth a visit to see the vibrant desert plants.
The Blue Sky Ranch is a rustic RV Park near the Fortuna Foothills. The Ranch has many exciting amenities including a big clubhouse with games and a pool table, outdoor activities like pickle ball and a putting green, and a book and movie library. It also features a spa and swimming pool. Park guests are invited to participate in weekly BBQs and special events (like ice cream socials). Nightly rates start at $42.
Tucson / Lazydays KOA Resort
5151 South Country Club Road, Tucson, AZ, 85706
Tucson is a thriving oasis town caught between the mountains and unending plains. With the help of the Saguaro National Park and the Sonoran Desert, the savannah-like landscape that surrounds Tucson is as beautiful as it is deadly. Tall cacti erupt from the ground and rattlesnakes slither through the desert shrubs. Wander off the trail and you might feel as though you have slipped back in time to the days of the Wild West.
Just like every other KOA spread out across America, the Tucson KOA Resort promises its campers a fun and relaxing experience. Leisure activities are important on any good vacation and the campsite is happy to provide them. At the KOA, you can cool down with a soak in the pool or heat things up the hot tub. There are basketball and pickle ball courts, a putting green, a racing car track, a kid’s playground, and a dog park. The full hook-up sites, complete with lawn and patio, start from $45 per night.
For The Best Wilderness Experience
AZ High Country Campground
5064 Sawmill Rd, Show Low, AZ, 85901
Blankets of wildflowers and narrow pine forests cover the rolling mountains of the Sitgreaves and Apache-Sitgreaves National Forests. It’s the perfect place to take a step back from the rush of life and lose yourself within the shaded foothills of Eastern Arizona.
The AZ High Country Campground is a friendly RV park between the two forests. The campground is peaceful and homely, with large sites shaded by country trees. Each spot has a picnic table and there is a community fire pit. Free WiFi can be found across the campground and full hook-ups are available. The nightly rate is $35.
FR 9350, Mogollon Rim
Payson, AZ, 85541
Is there a better way to experience nature than to camp in the very heart of the wilderness? In Arizona, there are ample Wilderness or Dispersed Camping opportunities. While rural campsites are great, nothing captures the true feeling of sleeping under the stars like parking your RV on a mountaintop and surveying the moonlit plains beneath you.
The Mogollon Rim is a 200-mile stretch of cliffs that overlooks the Colorado Plateau and the Coconino National Forest. And it’s beauty is accessible to everyone, free of charge. This means that you can set yourself up in one of the vast Dispersed Camping zones and relax, just don’t leave a mess.
