Sunny Saint David Arizona- Rehabilitated RV Park Reopening Soon

Saint David Arizona

We reached our destination on Thursday, exactly one week after we left Portland. We are in Saint David Arizona at a previously abandoned RV Park that is now being brought back to life.

The Lakes at Saint David RV Park is located in the southeast corner of Arizona. A friend and fellow, female, solo RVer invited me to come and stay where she had landed just a couple of weeks ago.

Out of nearly three hundred sites here only about twenty are being used. This park has been abandoned for six or seven years but was recently purchased and is being renovated. It needs a lot of work but it has a charm all its own.

The property is surrounded by a barbed-wire fence but I see coyote scat here and there so I keep a sharp eye on Murphy. The other campers are clustered in the second section of the park but I opted for a site in the upper level. There is only one other RV up here and the views are gorgeous.


The elevation of the park is three thousand seven hundred feet. The weather has been nice and warm with highs in the upper sixties and low seventies. Late afternoons tend to bring strong winds and I’ve had to stake the rug down to keep it from blowing away.

I’ve decided to stay here for a full month. The rate is very reasonable and I have full hookups. There is a lot to do in the area and the other campers here are very friendly.

These cute little adobe casitas will be used as rental units after the renovation is complete. Each of them is named after a type of cacti.

As always, Arizona had the most beautiful sunrises and sunsets.

I’m using my time here to work and make progress with my blog and Arbonne business. I’d like to wash and wax Bridget the Airstream and Max the truck. There are some other improvements I’d like to complete also.

  2. Oh my goodness Juley, your photos are once again so gorgeous. They make me want to go there. I love that fencing you have for Murphy. How large an area does it cover, how high is it, and where did you get it, if you don’t mind my asking? I am interested in what you recommend for traveling long term with a dog. Can you do a blog post on it sometime?

    1. Thank you Dolores!
      The temps are great. Even when it’s chilly the sun is so strong it feels warm. It was however, 28 degrees this morning but it warmed up fast.

  3. You do have some beautiful sun sets there . Looking forward to your blogs on the surrounding area . Vern in snowy Boise

    1. Vern,
      I’ll do some scouting soon. I’m getting myself together for a few days. There’s a lot to do here. Stay warm!
