RV Resort in Mesa, AZ

I'd recommend Venture Out RV resort in Mesa, AZ. Lots are privately owned and owners rent out their units or vacant lots. It has all the amenities you are looking for. They have a website and in the top right corner click on Bulletin Board and look for rentals. There are vacant lots for rent here by the month for about $800-$900 and that will get you the use of all facilities. We have really enjoyed it here, and Mesa is close to everything AZ has to offer. It's also the most dog friendly RV Resort we've seen with a huge dog park the size of a football field. **The RV lots that the park owns and rents are NOT available for dogs so go with a private owner's rental.

Friends of ours recommend Far Horizons Tucson Village in Tucson. We haven't been there before but plan to. They have a dog so I'm assuming it's okay to have dogs. You'll have to look up the amenities.

Findings

Okay.... I am getting a little more educated here. We have not been RV owners for very long (2 years) and just recently retired. So finding destinations outside of NPs and especially some sun in winter for a month or two or three is appealing. Most resorts I am landing on seem to cater to the over 55 crowd which is fine. But they have lots of activities, pools and sun. So here is what I have pieced together at this point:

Cal-Am Properties - http://www.cal-am.com/
They have 12 upscale RV resorts that cater to active lifestyles, pets, etc. The resorts are located in Arizona and California

Roberts Resorts - http://www.robertsresorts.com/
There are 5 resorts in Arizona that, again, cater to an active lifestyle. I couldn't find a pet policy but they say they require trailers to be >26' long ( I think I can fudge 1 foot).

Rincon Resort - http://www.rinconcountry.com/
This is a 2 park resort in Arizona. Looks popular

These all look great and on the mark for what we were interested in. I have not looked through reviews as yet but certainly plan to.

Any comments on these or others?

What I've found for our needs is:
It is not necessary to stay in a resort to get the aminities we want. A nice pool is a requirement. The other aminities being nearby outside the RV park is best for us. (and usually a lot less expensive)

We are in our 5th year of traveling south for several months during winter, October though March this season.

Here at Voyager resort we have been busy all week. Last night patio dinner at the restaurant and dancing in the ballroom, heading for the pickle ball courts this morning, then hobby shops, and pot luck gathering with friends tonight, church tomorrow morning. All without leaving the resort. Next week a short trip to New Mexico and then hiking in the area around Tucson. These resorts are a great winter destination for retirees.

Doug...that sounds perfect, thanks

I would second the suggestions for Chula Vista (San Diego) and Oasis (Las Vegas).

I don't like any of these for a long list of reasons. Also...we stayed at Voyager twice and will never stay there again.
Look at the Sunland RV Resort properties. They are all resort-style with no permanent modular structures. We are currently staying at Emerald Desert in Palm Desert for a week and love it. Beautifully landscaped with lots of shade (which is a must for us when we're staying in a desert) and first class amenities. There is so much to do in the Coachella Valley without having to drive great distances. I can't say the same for the resorts in Arizona and we are familiar with all of them. From here it's an easy drive to LA or San Diego or any of the beach towns in Orange County California. Last time here we drove to the Disney Concert Hall to see an LA Phil matinee concert and then home by dinner.
If you're visiting the San Diego area, I would recommend the the Metro KOA which is set in a forest and an easy drive down Harbor to downtown and the Marina and Harbor district. Also an easy drive to Coronado Island or Balboa Park. We visited Chula Vista but opted not to stay there.
Send me a personal email if you wanted detailed information on various areas of the Southwest or California. We have traveled from San Diego to Seattle many times in the last 12 years.

Campland on the Bay (Mission Bay) in San Diego is great and close to Balboa Park.
