Wintering in the Phoeniz area

Can you recommend a nice campground (clean and quiet) in the Phoenix, AZ area that is not too snooty to accept a late model 19' fiberglass trailer for a month or two in the winter?

McDowell Mountain Regional Park

We just left McDowell Mountain Regional Park just northeast of Phoenix, which we liked a lot. Big spread out sites in a large park with 360 view of surrounding mountains. We have a Scamp 19 and no one was unfriendly. Most others had big RV or 5th-wheels and a few Class-Bs.
The main attraction is their numerous hiking and mountain-biking trails. We're into birds and saw quite a few, though nothing unusual.
Restrooms are plentiful and pretty good. Sites with electric and water are $25 per night plus an $8 booking fee. Downside is that it's hard to get in. We had booked three nights several months ago and had difficulty extending. There is an overflow campground for $17 per night with no hook ups, but a very nice bathroom/shower.
There are other Maricopa County Regional Parks probably closer to other parts of Phoenix, some with campgrounds, but we haven't seen them. Google search should find them.

Thank you! Hadn't thought about the county parks. The last time I was at one of the Maricopa regional parks was several years ago and that was to hike - wasn't thinking about camping back then.

Just checked out the web site and it looks likes these parks will fill the bill for us. We can spread our visit over two or three parks and then, if needed, prevail on family and friends in the area before, after, and in-between.

Thanks again!

If you are willing to go a bit further west, La Paz County Park is just north of Parker, AZ on the Colorado River. Water & electric sites are $340 per month plus $.16 per KWH for electric. Short stays under 3 weeks are $25 per night. Prices include cable.

I stayed a month and enjoyed the park.
