Tucson - Lazydays KOA Resort

View USA South on divatmotoros's travel map.

We have visited many KOA sites before, mostly Journeys (which are the most basic, roadside stopovers) and some Holidays (which are better equipped). We always wondered how much better a Resort is, which is the best category within the network.

We entered Arizona in an extremely hot period, top temperatures reaching 100 F abd above. So the pool and the other facilities were more than welcomed. I was quite surprised how big structures were erected in this campsite to provide shade for the largest RVs (and generating electricity by the solar panels on the roof).


The game room with a pool billiard table was Avel's favourite, we played every single day of our stay. Bori was more amazed in the arts amd craft room which also included a rock climbing wall (both kid loved that). The top attraction was the small pond with a lot of foah amd some turtles, we went to feed them every day using the small, coin operated machine to get food for them. They also enjoyed the small train ride too, which they already tested before in Desert Hot Springs.


The best part of this stay was that we accidentally met a fellow traveller family from Denmark who we met briefly in La Paz. What are the chances that about a month later we both pulled into the same campground? Yet it happened and we had a great chat with them one evening. They were about to close their year long journey for now and planned their return trip home, with some sadness but enjoying their last few days on the road.

We recharged in the great pool for a few days and filled up our tech stock at a nearby Camping World. We got some toilet chemicals hard to get in Mexico and some other small things too. I did some maintenance on the trailer with little luck. We ordered a soft start device for the AC to make it work from a generator too. It is a small box easing the starting peak load of the AC and the promise was to let the AC work using our 2500 watt generator. Well, the theory is one thing, but in practice we learned that despite the 200 USD spent (and the 2 hours installation on the burning hot roof dealing with the desert sun) the generator still stalls when we switch on the AC. Will need to give a call to the company to find out what is wrong.
