Welcome to the RV Campgrounds

When you have retired and you want to see the land you can either downsize and get a camper which you pull behind you with a truck or your rent/purchase a stationary trailer at a campground.  This one – with a great view of the Superstition Mountain – is in Apache Junction, Arizona and currently where my inlaws are staying.  The road to get to their camp was just lined with camp site after camp site with some of them advertising 50 or 55+ only for the residents.

These camps in Arizona have some residents that are permanent and others that are ‘snow birds’ but everyone seems to enjoy living in their mini-city.  For more detailed information about the RV lifestyle take a gander at Ingrid over at Live Laugh RV.

And happy Leap Sadie Hawkins Day to you 🙂

        But, I am scared 😀

        Fear not! Well in Arizona watch out for snakes and scorpions but fear not! 😉

        I feel so relieved, my fears were groundless!?!

    Those mountains in black and white… are pretty cool!

      Yes they are but in color with things blooming around them is even better 😉

    Camping! Rugged! Camping!

      These RV’ers are far from rugged.

        The mountains are rugged. Most RVs I’ve seen are pretty plush. We did a lot of camping in Spain and Italy. The campgrounds are generally like resorts and really cheap compared to hostals and hotels. We were at one campground way up in the mountains in northern Spain in a caldera at the end of a goat trail (literally a one lane goat trail and the only way in and out). The village had no stores or bars. Trucks came in daily with meats, dairy and different produce, but the campground had a bar, little restaurant and showers. We stayed at a campground in Siena, Italy that had a pool by the bar, so while the kids played in the pool until all hours of the morning, Laurie and I and a few other couples sat at tables on the edge of the pool, drank wine, talked, and watched Gone With the Wind in Italian on a big screen TV.

    What a view…It looks great in B&W

    Arizona was one of the places we considered retiring, but have decided to stay in Delaware, however, perhaps one day we’ll visit.

      You really must visit! It really is God’s country out there in some parts.

    So many of these RV camps are built with the views in mind. Most are really spectacular. This one is certainly no exception, Teri. Great choice going B&W, too.

      Thanks, John. Some of these camps have better views than other and depending on where your place is in the camp the views can change too.

    It’s a fun and interesting lifestyle. Thanks for the mention. I’ll be missing for a bit while I replace my laptop. You know the drill. To say I’m frazzled is an understatement!

      My dear Ingrid…how I feel your pain because I finally got a new desktop and have spent the past two days trying to get things in the right spots. Still trying…UGH!!!

    RV people are an interesting bunch…I have met with many of them during my travels.

      This was a 55+ community although everyone I met was around 70+ and some of them were characters! 🙂
