The spectacular natural beauty in Arizona is more than enough to entertain you and keep you coming back for years. RV rentals in Arizona make it possible for you to travel in comfort while taking your time to do the things that interest you. Here’s a brief explanation of the different RV classes to get you started.
Towable trailers are popular RV options. Most trailers can be pulled by an SUV. The fifth wheel is the only model that requires a flatbed truck for towing because it uses a special hitch. A pop-up camper rental in Arizona is light, and as the name implies, they will expand, or pop up, when you set up camp. Toy haulers are great to have when you want to take a snowmobile or ATV with you on your road trip.
It's hard to pick a bad place to camp in this state. No matter which area of the state you are in, you can find one of the top campgrounds in Arizona to use as your home base. Kingman KOA is popular because it's surrounded by mountains and centrally located to many of Arizona's attractions, like the Hoover Dam, Lake Mead, Lake Havasu, and the Grand Canyon.
Other Arizona RV park options include Distant Drums RV Resort in Camp Verde, Rancho Sedona RV Park, and Meteor Crater RV Park Winslow. At Crater RV Park, you can do the awesome day or night hikes along the trail near Route 66. Campers get a discount on admission to the meteor site.
With good reason, the Grand Canyon is one of the most-visited national parks in the US. Even if you've been there before, there's always something new to explore. At night, the starry sky provides another universe to behold. Be sure to take a book of constellations and have some family fun spotting the celestial patterns.
Arizona is also filled with state parks. You can escape the heat in the pools at Slide Rock State Park. Another park with a beautiful lake for swimming, fishing, and boating is Patagonia Lake State Park.
Phoenix and Tucson probably have the most facilities for RV storage. But here are some other options where you can store your RV with confidence:
Arizona accommodates all the needs of RVers, and this includes dumpstations, which are essential for a smooth trip. Many campgrounds allow you to dump for free when you stay there and for a small fee if you're not a guest. Here's a brief list of some Arizona dumpstations:

You won't run out of teams to cheer for in Arizona. Phoenix is one of the 12 cities in the US that has NBA, NFL, NHL, and MLB teams, not to mention NASCAR, WNBA's Mercury and Cactus League Spring Training. Arizona's perfect weather means that you can participate in marathons, mountain biking, golf, horseback riding and more throughout the year.
