Southwest Region

  • States

    Arizona Colorado New Mexico Utah

  • Climate

    The Southwest Region is mostly arid but also has a combination of climates due to varying elevations and landscapes including mountains, foothills, high deserts, high plains, plateaus and deep canyons throughout the area. The southern parts of the Southwest Region have the driest and hottest conditions of all the U.S. Regions. The higher elevations in the northern parts of the region in Colorado and Utah experience cooler temperatures and snow in the winter. Camping is great at a KOA campground in this region and most campgrounds are open year-round. Arizona especially is popular for snowbirds during the winter months.
