Arizona is the prime destination for RVers, and if you stay there, you can see why. The Grand Canyon State is high in sunshine and scenery and low in precipitation. The temperature remains relatively warm throughout the year with temperatures easily reaching the upper 70s even in January. This makes it a haven for RVers escaping the harsh winter weather.
So where do all these RVers go? To the best RV parks. We look at the top ten Arizona parks, so you can find a great destination to relax and enjoy this beautiful state.

The Resort comes outfitted with a clubhouse, shower and laundry facilities, outdoor pool, a 9-hole chip and putt course, bocce courts, and host of other activities.
