We spent two months at the Tucson Lazy Days KOA this winter and I loved it! In fact, aside from Fort Wilderness, it is my favorite RV Resort EVER!
Watch the short review below or read on for more details.
We were in a standard back in which I thought were a great size.
Our friends were in a deluxe pull through and had plenty of space for entertaining. They even had us over for Christmas Eve. The deluxe sites also had a hedge between you and your neighbor so you don’t have to see their sewer hose when you’re outside.
The campground also had several premium sites with large outdoor seating areas, outdoor kitchens, an upper level deck, or private dog yards.
Although this was more resort style than campground, they did have a nice tent area by one of the pools. They had a little shade and each one had a small outdoor kitchen. Each had a storage area and outdoor sink.
My favorite part was the cabins you could rent if you had family visiting. Now that we’ve downsized, there is only room for 2 to sleep in our RV. We plan to stay at a place that has rentals whenever family comes to see us.
Of course the heated pools were amazing. There was one at the front of the park and one in the back. Both had hot tubs and adjacent to them were bath houses and laundry rooms. I also enjoyed the small fitness room when it was too cold to swim.
Other amenities included mini golf, playgrounds, picnic areas, and pickle ball to name a few.
There was even a bar and restaurant that was open every day. They had socials there for the holidays too.
They even had a lot of outdoor community space with picnic tables and outdoor fire pits. We love meeting other RVers on the road and had several new friends over for happy hour.
The camp store was pretty big with snacks and souvenirs. I even bought a t-shirt there that said, “Tucson Lazy Days KOA is my Happy Place!“
Although the weather was much colder than usual, we still managed to enjoy the local area. There was a lot of great hiking. We also visited some terrific museums.
One of my favorite museums was the Arizona-Sonora Desert Museum, a 98-acre zoo, aquarium, botanical garden, natural history museum, and art gallery. The entire outdoor museum was fabulous, but the highlight was definitely the amazing raptor show that occurs twice (both different) a day.
We also visited Saguaro National Park. This park has two sections, east and west that are divided by the city of Tucson. Both are pretty spectacular and I couldn’t pick a favorite.
One of our favorite (and most challenging hikes) was at Catalina State Park. It was the Canyon Trail to Romero Pools. Beautiful scenery, but we were sore for a few days afterwards. We’d still recommend it.
Finally, a great way to take it easy and just enjoy some amazing scenery is to drive up to Mt Lemmon via the Sky Island Scenic Byway northeast of Tucson. You start driving through a sea of Saguaro and end up in the snow. They say it offers the biological equivalent of driving from the deserts of Mexico to the forests of Canada in a short stretch of 27 miles.
