Winter campers know that Tucson, Arizona, is a great place to spend the months which are too cool for RV camping in other states. Add to this the fascinating surrounding attractions, such as early Native American settlements, locales that once welcomed Pancho Villa and Wyatt Earp, as well as caverns and natural hot springs, and it only makes sense that adventure-minded RV travelers like to visit Tucson. Staying at one of the best RV parks is easy, when you know what to look for.

Voyager RV Park and Resort for Active Retirees

The Voyager RV Park is actually part of a larger resort that serves retirees. The RV portion of the resort features 600 spaces with full hookups, including electricity, telephone and DSL Internet. This is one of the best RV parks in Tucson because it offers a graduated pay system that takes into consideration your rig size as well as the length of your stay. If you have an extra long recreational vehicle, you are sure to appreciate the 100-foot-long pull through sites that are 33.5 feet wide and feature paving, picnic tables and grills. The daily rate varies, depending on the season, and the least expensive time to camp at Voyager RV Park is May through August.
What sets this RV park apart from so many others is the fact that vacationers may enjoy volunteer led activities, which are scheduled at the community center. Retirees with expertise in music, arts and crafts, or other enjoyable hobbies volunteer their time and know-how, get newcomers involved in these activities, or encourage them to participate in regularly scheduled guest entertainment, such as dancing, hiking, golfing or sightseeing.
On the premises there is a day spa for beauty treatments and a Bar and Grill that looks after the culinary enjoyment of those who do not feel like cooking in their rigs or barbecuing.

Seasonal Whispering Palms RV Park near Downtown Tucson for Winter Camping

Visit the Whispering Palms RV Park with its graveled roads and pull through sites for the winter tourist season, which runs from November through March. A highlight of your stay could be the pancake breakfasts, bingo nights, regularly scheduled pot lucks and also game nights that make up the bulk of organized park activities. They take place in the small recreation hall. Although the park is open year round, the recreation hall is only open during the season, and out of season campers may still enjoy the locale but not the activities.
This is one of the best RV parks for families with kids, in part because there is an area set aside for tent campers. Children may enjoy a night away from their parents' RV---with appropriate supervision---to camp under the stars and enjoy the excitement of a campout.

The daily rates vary--AAA and Good Sam Club members save 10 percent--and include all hookups, cable TV, as well as free WiFi Internet.
