Discover Phoenix

Looking for sunshine, warm weather, and outdoor recreation? There’s no better way to satisfy your cravings than by renting a camper in Phoenix, Arizona.

Phoenix is a prime location for avid sports fans. Every year, people flock to the city for collegiate and professional football, basketball, hockey, golf, and baseball, just to name a few. One of the city’s most popular events is spring training baseball. Just imagine yourself in shorts and flip flops, eating hot dogs, and lounging on a grassy hill watching your favorite baseball team while everyone you know is still at home, buried under snow.

The best time of year to visit Phoenix is from the late fall through the early spring when the desert comes alive, and daytime temperatures average between 60 and 80 degrees. With almost 300 days of sunshine, people flock to the Valley of the Sun to spend time outside golfing, paddling, camping, hiking, walking, and enjoying the city’s extensive outdoor shopping and eating areas. Don’t discount Arizona during the summer, either. Your Phoenix RV rental can lead you to cooler weather in the northern part of the state — even in August! 

Things to do in Phoenix

Things to do in Phoenix

Pack up your Airstream rental and explore areas of the city where ancient inhabitants left behind evidence of their existence. Hike the Waterfall Canyon Trail in the White Tank Mountains or the Hayden Butte Preserve to find petroglyphs left behind by the Hohokam people. Then, take the family to the Heard Museum, where you can view American Indian art and take part in interactive experiences such as weaving and creating wearable art. Since many of these areas have limited parking, consider leaving your RV at the campground and taking the Valley Metro Light Rail or other public transportation.

Animal lovers who want to learn about the desert’s native species should spend the day at the Phoenix Zoo. The Phoenix Zoo is more than a place to see the world’s most recognized and loved animals; it’s a place where you can learn about and participate in the facility’s conservation and protection efforts. After the zoo, stop by the Desert Botanical Garden for a nature walk through the gardens or a staff-led, family-friendly activity. Before your visit, call to ask about RV parking. Although the parking lots are large enough to handle bigger vehicles, special events may prohibit oversized parking.

Are you looking to enjoy some fun on the water? In Phoenix, water activities are almost as abundant as golf courses and outdoor shopping areas. City campers might like to leave their rig at the campground to spend a day on the water at Tempe Town Lake or visit Encanto Park for a pedal boat rental. Desert dwellers should check out Lake Pleasant Regional Park. Paddlers can rent kayaks and stand-up paddleboards onsite. At Lake Pleasant, RV parking is easy. Park for the day or camp overnight at either the regional park campground or Pleasant Harbor RV Resort.

When the temperatures start to soar in Phoenix, beat the heat by heading to Arizona’s high country, home of Sedona’s red rocks, Payson’s Ponderosa pines, Flagstaff’s alpine tundra, and Grand Canyon National Park. Arizona’s higher-elevation locations have a colder, sometimes snowy winter, and warm days, and cooler nights during the summer. 

RV campgrounds in Phoenix

RV campgrounds in Phoenix

The Phoenix area is one of the best places in the country for winter RVing. During sunrise and sunset, hues of pink and purple dance across motorhome windows, reflecting prickly cacti and the beauty of the Sonoran Desert. At night, sounds of coyotes yipping in the distance help lull campers to sleep. Some of the best Phoenix RV campgrounds lie on the outskirts of the city. In the West Valley, the campgrounds at White Tank Mountain Regional Park accommodate motorhomes and trailers up to 45 feet in length and smaller Class B campervans and tiny trailers. All sites have a grill, fire ring, picnic table, and access to restrooms, showers, and a dump station. The larger, more developed sites include electricity and water hookups. All Campers who stay here can visit the nature center, hike, bike, stargaze, and search for ancient Hohokam petroglyphs.

In the East Valley, the jagged red rocks of the Superstition Mountains frame the campgrounds at Lost Dutchman State Park. The park has several hiking and biking trails and is a habitat for desert animals like jackrabbits, javelina, bobcats, and migrating birds. All RV-friendly sites include basic amenities for camping, and about half offer water and electricity. Campers who want to learn about the late 1800’s gold mining era can visit the Superstition Mountain Museum and Railroad or the Goldfield Ghost Town, both minutes away from the park. 

Phoenix has several private RV parks with resort-style amenities, although many parks cater to the 55 and older crowds. For non-age restricted campgrounds, check out Mesa/Apache Junction KOA or Pleasant Harbor RV Resort.
