Winter CG's South of Mesa, AZ.

Looking for your extended stay (couple months) CG recommendations, ideally south and east of Phoenix, Arizona. Would need full hookups for winter camping (2015/2016).

Thanks in advance.

Bob

I have not been to either of these, but I ran across them yesterday while looking at the desert just south for boondocking locations -

we were at desert gardens park several years ago. Were there only a couple of days. Nice place with great temps. Was loaded with various cactus species. Needed to be very careful if you have a pet as one of the cactus was cholla or jumping cactus. If you get anywhere near them they got you.

Appreciate the replies......, and I did have both Desert Gardens and Rancho Sonora as possibilities.

I'm presently wintering in Texas, but intend to take a drive over to Arizona in a few weeks and spend a couple days looking at different Resort CG's. My plan is to checkout some of the recommendations made by JOF members as well.

My thought next winter was to spend a few months in Arizona, then move over to Texas for a couple additional months.

All feedback is appreciated

Bob

If you know the area, I usually will just zoom down using Google maps. That is how I found those two places. Just stumbled across them while looking at desert. It's also how I found a lot of places on the beach in California. I just spend a few hours looking for RV's on the maps. There are more south of those other two.

Oh, I know you are looking for hookups, but if your interested, there are a ton of boondocking places around there. Check out the road at mile marker 119 on that main road. Here are the coordinates I am looking at for two weeks from now 32.860019,-111.126554

I'm set up for extended stay boondocking...., which is always a possibility for a back-up plan. Most of my summer camping back in Michigan is boondocking, but I spoil myself with full hookups in the winter

We live at the Arizonan, Basha food store is 8 miles away, Wally World is 12 miles away. Most of the people have some sort of ATV to go out in the desert and play. Lots are nice.Some of the people are really nice but you also have the not so nice. The superstitions are about 8 miles to the north and they are great looking.

We were camped next to Ron and Diane and across the street from Dallas . Great people and fun to ride with . Thinking of going back to the park
