Wahweap RV Park

Wahweap RV Park, 100 Lake Shore Drive, Page, AZ 86040wahweap rv

Along the southern shores of Lake Powel in Arizona, lies Wahweap RV Park.  If you’ve not been to Powell, you need to make an effort!  If you happen to also be a boater, OMG!  This lake and it’s surroundings are simply stunning!  The park itself is beautifully maintained, affordable, friendly, and the nite skies are not to be believed!  The marina is well equipped, with boat rentals , etc., so there is no reason you shouldn’t check out this remarkable, immense lake.  Look over their website and see for yourself.  I’ve only done it twice, but I’m a forever fan!

Grand Canyon Railway RV resort

Grand Canyon Railway RV Resort, 601 W Franklin Ave, Williams, AZ 86046

Maybe the very best it gets for RVers that want to experience the wonders of The Grand Canyon, is Grand Canyon Railway RV Resort.  Williams, Arizona, is about 30 miles West of Flagstaff and considered the Gateway to the Grand Canyon.  If you are planning a stay (I suggest this experience strongly) take the train ride.  You catch the train right at the park, and it’s just 65 miles to the rim of The Canyon, a delightful 2:15 trip.  But more about the park…this park is very clean, neat, and complete.  All amenities are included (they will even watch your puppy while you take the train to the Canyon!) friendly, comfortable, etc.  Sites are roomy, level, and paved.  They are bent on keeping things just so, with pads required under jacks, supports for all sewer hoses, etc., and the park reflects this attention to detail.  We have stayed here with and without the railway to the Canyon, but think you should include the Canyon.  It’s stellar!

Catalina State Park

Catalina State Park – 11570 N. Oracle Rd, Tucson, Arizona 85737catalina

Right there in the desert, just north of Tucson, lies Catalina State Park.  You won’t find many State Parks among my posts, but this one is exceptional.  It’s really the experience that makes it so special.  The beauty of this desert setting at the base of the Santa Catalina Mountains to the East, the cactus, the Road Runners, and the Coyotes, all punctuate one of the most relaxing RV experiences we’ve enjoyed!  This park offers electricity (20, 30, & 50amp) and good water. There are a couple of very accessible dump stations, but no full-hook sites.  Catalina becomes a very popular place in winter, a bit easier to reserve space in the summer and fall.  Oh, yeah…the night sky is not to believed!  It’s also surprisingly close to civilization, but you won’t notice it.
