Family Friendly RV Park in Tuscon over Xmas Break??

Hello!

Anyone have any experience/suggestions for a family friendly RV park in Tuscon for a week over Xmas break? I see a lot of over 55 places, but not many family friendly ones. Leaning towards LazyDays KOA but looking for other options if they are out there. thanks in advance!

Greg

I got Kartchner Caverns State Park on my list. Around 50 miles east of Tucson. W/E, but has dump station.

Who doesn't like caverns.

Safe and happy travels.

We stayed in Tucson over the winter a couple of years ago, at LazyDays KOA. While we were there, we looked at a lot of other campgrounds, for a possible return the following winter. IMO, LazyDays is the nicest park in Tucson, very "family friendly". There are other parks, full of snowbirds, that offer a lot of activities, from woodworking to square dancing to knitting classes, but they tend to be pretty close quarters. LazyDays' sites are very nice, with fruit trees surrounding many of the spaces (help yourself, for free. We had fresh OJ almost every day.) Close to Old Tucson (movies were made there), with tons of interesting things to see and do in the area. The park itself has two pools (one heated, IIRC), playground area for kids, and more. I think you would really enjoy it.

We stayed at LazyDays KOA about 2 years ago. We absolutely love it. We have family in the area and will be staying there on our next visit. They have a nice Bbq Rib restaurant on site and it was very good. Our site had lemon trees.

Stayed in the state park in or near Marana, which is at the northeast side of Tucson. Wow, right up against base of mountains, huge sites, very, very clean, but only has central dump station. Our son lives in Marana. He said for security reasons, stay away from any campground south of an east-west line through the center of Tucson. (See Mt. Lemon while you're there. Also has the worlds largest collection of restored aircraft anywhere. Not counting aircraft graveyard at Davis-Montham AFB.) Happy camping!.

Vince says stay away from any campground south of an E/W line through the center of Tucson. The BEST RV parks are south of the center of Tucson. However since winter is the busy season, finding a site in December could be a problem.

Xmas in Tucson

We take our trailer down to Tucson frequently in the winter and have been doing so for many years. If you want hookups reservations are required. Catalina State Park is easily the very best choice. Certainly a destination in itself.

GREG Could you please describe what a family friendly park is?
Are you just saying you have kids who want to play in the park?
Swimming pool?
Playground with swings and slide?

Have heard others ay this but have no idea what they consider family friendly.

I basically mean I’m looking for someplace that allows children (I.e. not an over 55 resort).

Lazydays KOA is our choice anytime of the year. Never had any problems getting a spot there at anytime. Our kids/grandkids live in Sahuarita (just south of Tucson) so we are there a lot.
Nice restaurant there also.
Oh, and they don't care if our grandkids stay with us. The kiddos love it as they have two pools

Still, I say check out Catalina State Park. One of best state parks around.

I've stayed at Crazy Horse RV Park and really liked it. Swimming Pool, scheduled activities. Close to Pima air museum and lots of other tourist sites. Nice onsite laundry/bathroom and showers too. Fast food and other restaurants within walking distance. Biking/Hiking trail close by. Recent covered Solar sites available.
