Hit the Road: The Best RV Camping Sites in Arizona

RV camping has its perks.

More comfortable than tent camping, RV camping still allows you to wake up in the middle of the woods, along the sandy coast, or next to a gurgling stream, and it allows you to sit around a fire as late as you want to, staying up to see shooting stars and listen to the calls of the critters that like to roam after dark.

Lucky for us, in Arizona, there’s no shortage of incredible RV camping sites. RV owners can go in search of cooler temperatures, lakeside views, mountain elevation, or the wide-open desert. The choice, thanks to ample opportunities for dispersed or reserved camping, is honestly yours.

While some destinations, like Sedona, offer more limited RV camping opportunities, other spots — like a number of Arizona’s 31 state parks — offer an abundance of choices. And, if none of those work, HipCamp shows 474 listings for owner-shared campsites across the state. 


Put simply, owners have options when they’re looking for the best RV campsites in Arizona. Here are just a few.


Lost Dutchman State Park

Not too far from home, and not too far from I-10 RV Storage, this park puts campers right up against the stunning Superstition Mountains and near the Goldfield Mountains. The area is somewhat of a mecca for RV campers, who indulge in all kinds of desert recreation, including horseback riding, hiking, and quick trips out to Canyon Lake for kayaking, boating, fishing, paddle boarding, or a day spent on the shore with a picnic basket. An added benefit? The local lore about the famous Old West gold mine. 

Patagonia Lake State Park 

If you’re looking for quiet solitude, Patagonia State Park is considered a hidden gem. In addition to shoreside camping, there are a dozen lakeside, boat-in campsites at this southern Arizona park, offering a truly rustic experience. Pack your personal watercraft, grab your tackle box and prepare for a campout that will help absolutely anyone unwind. 

Stewart Campground 

Those with their eyes to the sky will love Stewart Campground near Portal, a dark-sky city that is known — globally — as one of the best places in the world for stargazing. Although this is a first-come, first-served campsite, there are a few others in the immediate area should this site fill up. The streamside campground is positioned in a beautiful area for hiking, birdwatching, and world-renowned stargazing. 

Fort Tuthill County Campground

When the mountains call, you must go. To get the most out of the adventures available in and around Flagstaff, Fort Tuthill County Campground makes for a solid home base. Situated among Flagstaff’s Ponderosa Pines, the campground offers 101 sites on a reservation and first-come, first-served basis. The mountain campground also offers campers proximity to hiking, biking, Flagstaff Extreme’s ropes course, Upper Lake Mary, an archery range and other nearby attractions — including the Grand Canyon and Bearizona. 

When you’re not camping in your RV, you’ll need a place to store it. At I-10 RV Storage, we offer competitive rates, convenient access in the Southeast Valley, and concierge service.
