tempe, AZ

Tempe, Arizona has a population of about 160,000, and is located on the east side of metropolitan Phoenix. Like Phoenix, it has a hot desert climate with little rainfall, year round.

There's a plethora of campgrounds around Tempe, and visitors are guaranteed to find several sites that fit their camping preferences. One of the most well-known RV parks in Tempe is Apache Palms, which offers everything you’d expect from a higher end RV campground, including a heated swimming pool and whirlpool and free cable and TV. Most RV camps in the Tempe area provide similar onsite activities to Apache Palms, providing campers with plenty of space and gear for hiking, fishing, stargazing, exploring and biking. The Metro Light Rail provides easy access from these campgrounds to nearby cities such as Phoenix, Mesa, and Scottsdale. In Phoenix, visitors can look forward to attractions such as Papago Park, which contains both the Desert Botanical Gardens and the Phoenix Zoo, the Arizona Science Center and performing arts theaters that put on shows regularly.
