RV Resort near Tucson

Can anyone recommend an RV resort (not too huge) to stay in for a couple of nights near Tucson. Not in the city but somewhere outside but close enough to drive in. Looking for full hookup, laundry facilities, internet and swimming pool. Thanks....

Haven't stayed here personally, but this is the one that is constantly mentioned as very favorable in the Tucson area. Being a KOA it will meet all your requirements.

No sewer hookups either. There is a laundry just a few miles north on Oracle.

Catalina is one of if not the nicest state park we've stayed in, might be hard getting a site this time of year.

De Anza RV Resort exit 46, on I19 south of Tucson, stayed there in January. Huge lots, great laundry, cable with about 20 channels, internet good in the main building, cheap propane at farm store about 2 miles away.

A friend told us about Gilbert Ray County Park and we loved it there. All the sites are electric, I don't think any have sewer or water, but both are easily accessible. It is so popular they limit you to 7 day stays.

If you really want to full hookups, laundry, swimming pool, etc. The KOA is a pretty good place to stay. We stayed there a couple of years ago because it was close to some family that we were visiting. You also get a good view of the military jets taking off from the air force base a bit to the east. The sites are ok, featuring a concrete pad and a lemon tree, but like most KOAs you are close to your neighbor

But, if you can do without those amenities, let me echo what others have said. Gilbert Ray is our favorite place to stay in the area and Catalina State Park is a close second. Much more nature around, much more privacy. Many hiking trails.
But I don't recall a laundry either place.

Thanks to all those who responded. In the end we decided to go for the KOA, as it gave us a plug-ins to top up the batteries as we will be heading off for a week of dry camping next. It also has laundry and a pool as it's nice and warm for the next few days and easy access to visit the city. And it has decent internet too, almost 20 mbs, although I suspect it will slow down around the dinner hour. We also have our own lemon tree which smells delicious. State park it's not, but it meets our current needs.
