With more than 30 parks to choose from, Arizona’s state park system is filled with diverse landscapes, an abundance of outdoor activities, and plenty of room for RV and tent camping. Most RV sites offer water and electric hookups and typically come with a fire ring and picnic table. 

Here are a few tips for camping at an Arizona state park.

Booking: You can reserve your campsite up to a year in advance. Book online or call the park you’re planning to visit ahead of time to reserve your spot. 

Pricing: Most parks cost $15 to $50 a night depending on the campground and season. 

Choosing a site: You can filter sites online by camping type (RV, tent, cabin, etc.) and RV length. This way, you can ensure your rig fits before you make your way to camp.

RV sites: Most of Arizona’s state parks offer RV camping with water and electricity. However, few provide full hookups, so make sure you come prepared. Parks like Catalina and Picacho Peak State Park offer paved sites, partial hookups, dump stations, and bathroom and shower facilities on-site.
