RV Parks for Camping Near Tucson, Arizona
Stepping back in history, striding into recreation opportunities, hiking a national park; it's all part of the attraction to Tucson, Arizona. On an alluvial plain surrounded by steep, mountain ranges for hiking, Tucson stretches its history back to the ancestral agrarian Tohono O'odam native peoples. It was one of the legendary seven cities of gold on El Camino Real and home to the historic Spanish mission, San Xavier. With more than 350 days of sunshine, Tucson is a popular base for RV camping and a gateway to many activities.

Voyager RV Park

Exploring history is more accessible when camped in southern Tucson. The Voyager RV Resort, located off Interstate 10 south of Exit 270, Kolb Road, is a full-amenity location. Its bar and grill provide three meals a day, there's tennis and golf as well. The southern location saves crosstown traffic headaches when touring Mission San Xavier del Bac, hiking the less visited Saguaro National Park East District, or strolling the historic Western towns of Tombstone and the staircase sidewalks of Bisbee. Voyager is a full RV resort with more than 1,500, 50-amp service sites. Most are the standard 35-foot by 50-foot back-in, but there are many 100-foot pull-through sites. Campers enjoying privacy can select one of the 100 premium pull-through spaces that have semi-private hot tubs and barbecue facilities shared by two or four sites. The park also features 25-foot by 50-foot value sites for smaller RVs without pop-outs. Shower and laundry facilities are scattered about the resort for easy access. Free Wi-Fi is in the air throughout the park.
