Payson Campground, site #42

We’ve made it to Arizona – and, hopefully warmer temperatures.

After a calm, but chilly transit across western New Mexico and eastern Arizona we’re parked at what appears to be a former KOA, the Payson Campground and RV Resort.  It’s amazing how many former RV parks are now called resorts.  This one is unique because it’s perched on the top of a hill just off of highway 260.  Long gashes in the pavement attest to the steepness of the entrance driveway – anyone with low clearance needs to take extra caution to make sure they don’t leave their rear bumper or stabilizer jacks in the roadway.  Once inside, the sites are terraced along the back of the hill and along the outer edges.  With trees everywhere, plenty of shade is available in many of the sites.  We were in site #42, a very long back-in site along the outside edge of the park.  While we needed 3 blocks to level, the full hookups (water, sewer and 30/50 electric) were conveniently located.

This will be a relatively quick stop – we’re only about 90 miles from Lost Dutchman State Park.  More from the valley of the sun tomorrow!
