Headed to the valley of the sun for a swim meet w the family. Looking for a good place to camp for the weekend. Will be traveling in a group with friends in their RV. Anyone know of a good spot to park the rigs while we are in town for the weekend?

Much appreciated.

The Valley is rather large. Let's narrow it down: Where is the swim meet taking place?

Your right and I thought of this as soon as I hit submit. Meet is in Goodyear. Weekend of the 7th through the 10th.

I was just out there last week and noticed there was weekend camping in the Tonto Forest along the Bush Highway which is east of Phoenix and runs along the Salt River.

Any maybe you'll see some wild horses there... we did.

Thanks folks.

Church next to the Swim meet may allow us to park there for the weekend. If they decide not its gonna be White Tanks.

I appreciate the advice.

Jay
