The sun shines bright on Phoenix; this urban spread averages more than 300 days of rays per year. The sometimes-scorching city and the rest of the so-called "Valley of the Sun" attract hordes of tourists and permanent relocators from the Midwest and the East Coast. RV camping in this parched paradise is the perfect way to relax and rejuvenate.
Phoenix is a mecca for golfers, thanks to its clear skies and dry climate. There are more than 200 golf courses and 3,600 holes to play in this desert wonderland. But for most visitors, renting an RV in Phoenix puts them on the road to the vast expanses of the Grand Canyon. Many make the 230-mile journey to the north to witness a giant slice in the earth that few places in the world can rival.
Some amazing outdoor attractions dot the desert surrounding Phoenix. Lake Pleasant Regional Park is just north of the city and offers an oasis-style escape amid the dry, dusty region. Popular pastimes here include boating, fishing, and scuba diving.
On the city's eastern edge, Lost Dutchman State Park provides some prime hiking opportunities. Several trail systems weave through the park, some short and easy with lots of sightseeing opportunities and others lengthy and challenging, leading to stunning, panoramic views. Snag one of the RV campsites at Lost Dutchman and stay awhile to explore more of the rocky terrain.
In a land of head-spinning geology, Grand Canyon National Park is Arizona's colossal tourist draw. And it helps that getting there from Phoenix is a straightforward affair. Take Interstate 17 up to Flagstaff, then Highway 180 to Tusayan, a tiny gateway town just outside the park entrance. To avoid peak-season congestion, bypass Flagstaff and take Highway 89 to the historic Cameron Trading Post. It was originally where Navajo and Hopi tribes came to barter their wares (livestock, blankets, wool) for dry goods.
Eighty miles north of Cameron Trading Post via Highway 89 is a photographer's dream. Antelope Canyon is traditionally known by the Navajo as "the place where water runs through rocks." It's famous for its dazzling display of light against vermilion rocks sinuously carved by water and wind. Entrance to either Upper or Lower Antelope Canyon is only available via guided tours.
Just ten miles west of Antelope Canyon is Horseshoe Bend, named for the shape the river takes as it meanders around a rock. Park your Phoenix camper rental off Highway 89, and make the short hike to the top of the lookout to observe a breathtaking 1,000-foot drop.
Sedona, about halfway between the Grand Canyon and Phoenix, is thought to be the center of energy vortices (or vortexes, as locals prefer to call them) that emanate from the red rocks. These vortices are said to be conducive to healing, meditation, and self-exploration, which perhaps explains why Sedona teems with wellness centers and yoga retreats. But if you want to marvel at something you can see, then the towering, carved red rocks (with the Cathedral Rock being the most photographed) should do the trick.
Monument Valley is close to the Utah-Arizona border. If you're planning to take your Phoenix motorhome rental on a journey to Arches National Park in Utah, take a few hours to breathe in the minimalist beauty of Monument Valley in the heart of Navajoland, where big blue skies and big red rocks rule.
Campgrounds and RV parks in Phoenix are abundant. This snowbird haven caters to long-term heat seekers and temporary travelers just passing through. Rent an RV in Phoenix, and you'll find just the place to fit your needs. Camp near Superstition Mountain when you stay at one of the RV campsites at Twin Palms RV Park. This well-manicured Mesa RV park features modern restrooms and showers, a laundry facility, and water and electrical hookups for your rental RV.
Full-service facilities in the middle of the city can be found at Covered Wagon RV Park. Roll into one of the RV campsites here and plug into the water, sewer, and electrical connections. Splash into the swimming pool, catch up on your laundry at the on-site laundromat, or head out to explore some of the city's best attractions.
When you book a motorhome rental in Phoenix, camping near the Grand Canyon may be at the top of your list. Though, if you plan to be within striking distance of other natural wonders in Arizona, the RV park right across from the Cameron Trading Post plants you in an ideal position to explore Antelope Canyon, Horseshoe Bend, and Monument Valley on a day trip.
The Cameron Trading Post RV Park is right off Highway 89 and offers electric, water, and sewer hookups. Across the street is a gas station, and one mile up the road, you'll find a grocery store. The South Rim entrance is only a half-hour's drive away. If you plan to hike down to the canyon or explore it by pack mule, Cameron Trading Post offers guided tours.
If you want to be right inside the Grand Canyon National Park, consider camping at Trailer Village RV Park on the South Rim. The park, located in Grand Canyon Village, is paved, offers full hookups, has a dump station, and is within walking distance of the market. Children, pets, and apparently, wildlife are welcome. (Expect to be greeted by elk and mule deer when you wake up in the morning.) Even better, you can take advantage of the free park shuttle at the entrance.
With all these amenities, it comes as no surprise that the Trailer Village is often packed, even in January, as it operates year-round. So book an RV in Phoenix and make your reservations well ahead of time to secure a space.
If you want to see the Grand Canyon from the North Rim, camp at Kaibab Camper Village in Fredonia. The park offers full hookups and is open from mid-May through mid-October. A country store and full-service gas station can be found just five miles to the north. From the RV park, the canyon rim is 45 miles away via the scenic North Rim Parkway.
A city rich in history and culture, Phoenix has lots to see. Easily access the metro area using the Valley Metro Light Rail, which serves downtown and central Phoenix. Valley Metro also links these areas to the airport and the neighboring urban centers of Mesa and Tempe.
Visit the Desert Botanical Garden, see a Komodo dragon or a Galapagos tortoise at the Phoenix Zoo, admire the works of Diego Rivera, Georgia O'Keeffe, and Frida Kahlo at the Phoenix Art Museum, or learn about the history of the area at Pueblo Grande Museum and Cultural Park. For an unimpeded view of Phoenix from above, take the Valley Metro and get off at the station near East Camelback Road. You'll have to be physically fit to hike up Camelback Mountain. Many hikers find it challenging, but the payoff is well worth it.
Old Town Scottsdale is a one-stop destination for shopping, dining, and history. Tour art galleries devoted to Native American works, spend some time strolling through the shops at the 5th Avenue Shopping District, or splurge on tasty treats at one of the gourmet sweet shops. Old Town's diverse restaurant scene features fancy fine dining options, low-key Mexican eateries, and traditional American fare.
In the spring, over a dozen professional baseball teams take advantage of Phoenix's premium climate conditions for pre-season training. Book an RV rental for the Cactus League Spring Training and enjoy a few days at the ballpark. Won't make it here for the spring season? You've still got options. Get in position for some Arizona Diamondbacks RV camping during the summer months, and you can park your rig nearby for easy access to the games.
Visit the Valley of The Sun in April and attend the bumping Phoenix Lights festival. This event brings the beats to the vast deserts just south of Phoenix, featuring some of the best EDM artists on the planet. RV camping at Phoenix Lights isn't an option, but several RV campgrounds in Tempe can accommodate your rig.
