When Winter Storm Landon chased us clear down to the southern edge of Arizona on our way to Florida, we were pleasantly surprised to happen upon this gem. It turns out that the Tucson Lazydays KOA is kind of a big deal, and we were lucky to land a last minute booking. We stayed two nights (waiting for the winter weather to clear off our path through Texas.)
On our first night we were booked in a "Fruit Tree Pull Through," and the kids loved picking fresh grapefruits out of the trees. We also spotted orange, lemon and lime trees around the campground as well.
We were moved for our second night because they were at capacity (and we were booking last minute per the weather.) The second site was a "Back-In with Private Dog Yard & Fireplace Patio." Although this site was an upgrade, we really preferred the fruit tree sites for their greenery. Our dogs did enjoy some time off their leashes in the private yard, but it was quite small. They're most likely designed for teeny lap dogs that accompany many on the road.
This was a great place to take the dogs out for walks, and the exercise and sunshine felt amazing after days on the road. While exploring the campground, we spotted so many different types of sites that we'd never seen before - There were some with patios, verandas, casitas, two story sun-decks, sun covers, and even play places all on each site. We'd never seen anything like it before. You can check out the variety of site types on their website HERE.
We could tell that this campground was clearly a destination for many - locals and snowbirds. The resort also featured a pool and hot tub, BBQ restaurant, tennis courts, putting greens, tiny library, pool tables, and a lot more. There was a major gem show in town the same week, and the campground had a little gem show going on during the day.
If you're ever passing through Tucson, we'd give this one two thumbs up!
