Tempe area RV parks

Richard:

On our way to Albuquerque, we intend to stop in Phoenix and catch a couple ball games at Chase Field, Padres vs. D'backs the 26th & 27th.
The race should really be heating up by then .

Then on Monday morning we head to Tucson. I was thinking by staying in Tempe or Scottsdale we could avoid some rush hour traffic.

I was wondering if you and/or the other folks from the Phoenix area, on this thread, could recommend a place here we could stay?

Tnx Lyle

Have a great recommendation for Williams, the Railside RV Ranch. Three of us will be there. They have great service for shuttling their guests into town for dinner and dessert and the will try to place us together if you tell them you are with the Airstream people. Their web site with info and phone numbers: Railside RV Ranch . We plan to wait until 5 or 5:30 to head into town for dinner and will request the shuttle if others want to go with us. I'll pm my cell phone to those staying there.

Regarding Barstow or Needles, you might try the campground at Calico Ghost Town San Bernardino County Park: Calico Ghost Town or the Barstow/Calico KOA: Home page -- RV park location, services | Barstow Calico KOA . We haven't stayed at either place. Both are convenient for the east bound trip on I-40. You might even take old Route 66, National Trails Highway, east through Amboy to almost Needles however avoid the section between Fort Cady Road and Ludlow (use I-40 for this reach) because it was extremely rough and potholed when we last took it.

We will be caravaning across I-40 on Thursday. I believe Don and Gail (Motoman) will be in Williams the night before. Jan and I will be joining Thursday morning in Flagstaff. We will be waiting at Little America (truck stop) which is located just East of the I-17 junction on Butler Ave, just South of I-40.

Keep watching this thread for more details!
Richard, what time should we meet the group from Phoenix at Little America?

Lyle...

Haven't stayed there, but check out the Apache Palms PV Park in Tempe... Apache Palms RV Park - A Big Rig & Modem Friendly RV Park in Tempe, Arizona

A fancier place looks to be Gold Canyon in Scottsdale...but then that's Scottsdale! Haven't stayed there either. : Welcome to Roberts Resorts the golf retirement community of Arizona & RV and Golf Resorts of Arizona USA, Championship golf Arizona, Active Adult Community of Arizona

There are a BUNCH of RV places in Apache Junction, which is further east of Tempe in the East Metro Area... a big snow bird destination.

Just curious why you are going from Phx to Tucson on your way to ABQ...unless you have a reason, of course....it's not really on the way to ABQ unless you're already in the southern part of the state! We are going to ABQ via Show Low in the White Mountains...a much more scenic route. We'll come home via 1-25 and I-10, though...

have fun while you're in our fine state...and see you at the Balloon Fiesta!

I remember it, we went there with Kevbo and the party group from CA Streamers. Hopefully the other guest will get to Williams early enough to go into town for dinner.

TB & Greg...and Cockers Annie & Sadie:

Thanks for the suggestions.

Our reason for Tucson next is, I want to see the Air museum. We won't be able to stop on the way back because we need to be in Monterey, CA on the 8th for the sports car races at Laguna Seca.

Any Tucson recommendations?

Tnx Lyle
