We spent Thanksgiving to New Years staying at Az state campgrounds. During that time they are very empty. We stayed at Picacho Peak, Patagonia Lake, Kartchner Caverns, Roper Lake, and Lost Dutchman. All great parks. I would definitely recommend Kartchner- the caverns are spectacular! One of the two tours is closed after Apr. 15, due to bats nesting. A good day trip from there is Tombstone or Bisbee. A great day trip from Picacho Peak is the Biosphere 2

We spent some time in North Arizona this past summer..... we had good luck with Bureau of Land Management Campgrounds, especially around Taos. Also FOrest service campgrounds and boondocking.

The BLM camps had lights and water usually hot showers.

With the golden age access pass our camp fees were below $10 in most places. State parks were more.

Another nice park to put on your list is Buckskin SP. On the Colorado river a bit north of Parker. Cool and mellow by the river in the winter.

I hear it is jumping in the summer with all sorts of river antics going on.
But quite mellow this time of year.

We are sitting in AZ as we speak, have been camped for a few days (boon docking) just a mile outside of the south entrance to the Grand Canyon. Temperatures here are a little cooler than in the Phoenix area (20's at night, low 60's during the day), but it has been great. We are sitting on a fire road and there are multiple "campsites" (obviously there are no camping fees), although we are the only ones here. A little slice of heaven. And with our senior pass access to the Grand Canyon is free as well.

We will shortly (as in later today) moving to Lost Dutchman and McDowell who others have commented on - this will be our first time at either of these locations, but will try to give you some insight after our visit.

Oh, and I forgot to mention we stayed in a national forrest campground called White Spar which was great! Just outside of Prescott, which is a cool little town. Near Prescott also are a couple of lakes (Watson Lake to name one) which are just drop dead gorgeous if you travel with kayaks or canoes; very quiet, no motorboats. You can see some of our AZ travels if you click on travelwiththeslowskys.com, a blog I use to try to remember where the heck we've been! We will be in AZ for another week or two.

All right, last post. We will also head in a few weeks down near Tucson to Catalina and Valley of Fire campgrounds. We have not been to either, but I believe these are both supposed to be nice.
