Camping vacations don’t get much better than the Tucson area. Pleasantly cool piney mountains cloak the Southern swath of the state, filled with canyons and cliff dwellings. In the area are hundreds of golf courses and reliable sunshine makes the region a favorite escape from winter. The fragile Sonoran Desert sweeps across the state’s southwestern quadrant, featuring stunning desert scenery highlighted by the iconic saguaro cactus. Your RV will make the perfect base camp for all of Arizona's attractions.
