Arizona is an incredible US state, and many people enjoy visiting its regions at all times of the year. Because it is such a large state with so many camping opportunities, we’ve split the state of Arizona into multiple regions. Southern Arizona makes an excellent winter destination for RVers looking to escape the colder climates. Northern Arizona has cooler temperatures than the south, but that just means the ideal times to visit are in the spring, summer, and fall. Northern Arizona is ripe with boondocking opportunities within all of the national forests, and Harvest Hosts members gain additional access to even more RV camping locations with their membership. Buckle up, and join us as we explore some of the best Harvest Hosts locations and unique attractions for RV camping in Northern Arizona.

Must-Visit Places in Northern Arizona
The famous Grand Canyon is an iconic American wonder. Many forget that this incredible landmark is also a national park. When visiting Northern Arizona, be sure to stop by and witness this breathtaking natural beauty. Even if you’ve visited before, some things are meant to be viewed more than once. The Grand Canyon looks different throughout each of the four seasons, especially in the winter. Many folks are surprised to learn that parts of the desert snow plenty, too. Some folks are lucky enough to see the Grand Canyon when it’s covered in a dusting of snow. Unfortunately, at the time this article was written, there are no Harvest Hosts locations near the Grand Canyon. However, there are tons of free boondocking opportunities in the surrounding areas.
Petrified Forest is perhaps a lesser-known national park, especially with the its nearby big brother the Grand Canyon casting a large shadow. However, this park brings its own set of special and geologically-spectacular sights to the table. There are a variety of different activities found here, ranging from an hour-long scenic drive to a half a day of sight-seeing and hiking opportunities. Like most national parks, this park offers hiking, backpacking, and horseback riding opportunities (bring your own horse), as well as guided tours. Did you know that this is one of the most pet-friendly national parks? Your dog is allowed everywhere within the park, except for buildings. Frequent national park-goers will realize what a rare treat that is.
Northern Arizona is one of the best places to explore in your RV during the spring, summer, and fall seasons. The colder temperatures make this desert a dream to visit.
