The Great Outdoors

The fifth largest national forest in the United States, Tonto has a diverse array of ecosystems to explore. The rapidly changing elevations, from the lowly Deserts to the ponderosa pine forests which make up the Mogollon Rim, make for a great collection of beautiful scenery. “Tonto” is the Spanish word for “fool” and you would feel like one if you visited Waddell and didn’t make the trip to the nearly 3 million acre park to hike, horseback ride, and nature watch.

Take your RV rental from Waddell to the Sonoran Desert National Monument to get a slice of one of America’s favorite natural wildlife regions. The most biologically diverse of all deserts in North America, the iconic saguaro cactus forest is one of the most visited parts of the park, but the national monument boasts three distinct mountain ranges, the Maricopa, Sand Tank, and Table Top. Spend the trip hiking, horseback riding, viewing wildlife, or driving off road vehicles through the designated trails.

Another trip worth taking is to the Kofa National Wildlife Refuge to the south toward Yuma. Originally established in 1939 to protect the desert bighorn sheep, the refuge offers a diverse amount of plant species and the scattered waterholes offer sanctuary to a surprising amount of waterfowl. Hike and explore the Kofa National Wildlife Refuge when you rent a luxury RV in Waddell. Many of the area’s great parks and refuges have guides so consider making reservations with one of the many tour companies.
