Winter spot recommendations?

Just finishing our first snowbird winter in our scamp fiver, did southern states for 3 months; looking for strong recommendation for a great STAY PUT place in southwest for next trip... Dont need swimming but must have shirtsleeve weather and sunshine for our aching bones. Thx, in advance...Kay and Orland (Wis and MN)

Kay & Orland, Apache Junction Arizona has many RV parks that offer long term (stay put) discounted spaces, and the weather will probably be good for the aching bones as well.

There's a few National Parks in the southwest. Organ Pipe Cactus National Monument, Death Valley National Park, both are good and camping fees are low. Stay limits are 21 days and 30 days respectively however they're pretty much ignored.

If you like a beach and a good biking area I suggest South Padre Island in Texas, reasonable fees and great area.

I did 60 days (Jan-Mar) in the southwest for the first time this winter. It was great!
I have a few recommendations.
1- Southern (the warmer area) New Mexico state parks. Very inexpensive with water & electric hook ups ($14/night).
2- Organ Pipe Cactus National Monument. No hookups, but inexpensive, warm & lots to do. Downside is that it is far off the beaten path. Stock up on groceries!
3- BLM areas. Again, I stayed in the southern part of NM & AZ. Most (not all) had no hook ups, but were free & close to other interesting areas. Some had hookups & were very inexpensive.
4- I found AZ state parks too expensive & crowded, and did not stay there.
5- Quail Ridge RV Resort, north of Sierra Vista, was a very nice base camp for an extended period. $10/night, full hookups, great rest rooms/showers, excellent clubhouse with satellite tv, very friendly people/staff, DVD rentals, scheduled events and located in the middle of an area with lots to see and do. No wifi or cable tv, but there was so much to do around there, I didn't need it.

Have fun!

We have wintered in the Rockport/Fulton Texas area for the past two winters with plans to go back this winter. There is no nicer place to stay with abundant restaurants, shopping and the gulf coast only a couple of blocks away. Cost of living is very reasonable. Don't miss movie Night on Tuesdays in Rockport. 5.50 a ticket for seniors and all the free popcorn you can eat.

There are numerous camping resorts in the area with rigs ranging from 13 foot fiberglass classics to 40 foot fifth wheels and the like.

People are awesome as is the weather. We are from Northern Michigan. LOved the mid 70s weather. Especially sunny and warm this year. Our favorite Grocery store is HEB hands down

Come see us!!!!!!!!

I'm second for NM state parks or commercial campgrounds. Very inexpensive and a nice weather in the winter months. Southern TX is my favourite winter travel destination when I'm bored with snowbirds here in Florida :-)

My dad moved to Apache Junction for the final few years of his life. He used to walk about 5-6 miles each day, and the scenery there was great for that. We visited him there and he, my young son and I hiked up the Siphon Draw Trail in Lost Dutchman SP. Great memories. Look up that SP for photos, and you may decide to spend at least one winter there also.

Mike, we live 1/2 mile south of the Lost Dutchman State Park, and hike the Siphon Draw trail many times / year.
