12 Best RV Parks in Arizona for Snowbirds (2023-24)

Where snowbirds enjoy a second summer in winter

It’s that time of year again! The birds are migrating south for the winter and the RV snowbirds are behind them. After all, isn’t that the whole point of having a house on wheels? So you can follow the good weather no matter where it leads!

Snowbirds love to head to the Southeast, temporarily residing in states like Florida, Alabama, Louisiana, or Texas that stay relatively warm. Other options include the Southwest where the dry climate allows for more temperate winters (as long as you stay in the lower-elevation Sonoran Desert). Arizona is one of my favorite options for northern snowbirds escaping the snow and freezing temperatures this winter!

I rounded up 12 of the best RV parks in Arizona for snowbirds. Check them out below!

Worth Pondering…

This was as the desert should be, this was the desert of the picture books, with the land unrolled to the farthest distant horizon hills, with saguaros standing sentinel in their strange chessboard pattern, towering supinely above the fans of ocotillo and brushy mesquite.
