Talking Tucson, AZ

Any one in the Tucson area should drive the Sky Island byway to Mt. Lemmon. It is a GRAT drive that goes through 4 different life zones (desert, grassland, woodland and forest) in a less then an hour. Climbing up to over 8,000 feet. There is a great app to download to that tells you the history and facts of the geology on the drive up.

Thanks for the heads-up, had not heard of it. We were in T for over 2 weeks, and seemed like every other day the road to Mt Lemmon was closed to public traffic due to snow.

We were up to Mt Lemmon the second week of December (2018). VERY nice drive!

We're hoping to spend more time in the Tucson area during our next visit.

The public facility was great and there was a lot to do. I used there gas grills everyday for dinner. They were all brand new. As I do not carry a greasy grill with me. As far as my site, I had to take a wire brush and clean the hose bib threads because my house would not screw on to it because of some mineral buildup. The sewer was broken, but I was able to jam the end of my hose in it. I also had to put a piece of 2x10 under the left wheels of the rig as they were off the ground when I first leveled. I NEVER leave my wheels off the ground when camping. We stayed on 7th St in what everyone there calls peable beach.
Hope this helps. Let me know if you have any other questions.

People either love Yuma or they hate it! I hear this a lot "at the grocery store stay out of the way of the blue hairs's as they are very rude". Also "never go back to that dust bowl again".

Will be curious to your thoughts after staying.

Never have stayed but been there several times. YUP windy and dusty.

Gets cold at night. Lots of Snowbirds make it hard to find a spot but some folks open up thier pastures for them to camp. Folks were mostly nice when I was there. Had RV parks in a few places, Casino by the interstate. Lots of open area and Border patrol there.

Oh yeah, further west of there on I-8, there is a silo with the words "sea level" half way up.

Well, we really enjoyed the Voyager in Tucson. Lots to do and see. Easy town to drive in. Finally found a park where they actually try to enforce dog rules. Saw first hand when they escorted someone out after warning him twice to keep his dogs out of the no pet areas. A little dated, but so am I.


Arrived in Yuma last night at The Palms RV Resort. Nice place but a little pricey. Let you know more in a week.

Don't waste your time or money. The people are nice but that's where it ends. All the RV resorts are a stone's throw from I-8 and the ones further away are in bad need of maintenance. It was much too noisy. I-8 on one side and heavily used train tracks on the other. I said as much, and more, in Campground Reviews. Will never go back. JMHO.

Bill, glad to hear that you liked it. This has been the best TT park I have stayed in by far. We were greeted by the gate guards every time we came back in. They would say Welcome back.
