Pack a bathing suit, plenty of sunscreen and go–Phoenix’s Tommy Camper Vans is now offering camper van rentals for traveling with ease around the state and beyond. Kristen Keogh, Arizona native and outdoors expert of Here With Her, shares her top three Arizona summer destinations to visit via camper van this season.
White Horse Lake Campground
This Arizona summer destination is located 19 miles south of Williams, and the campground is the perfect place to escape to if you’re craving cool summer nights. Travelers can paddleboard, kayak, go fishing and enjoy nearby hiking trails. When you venture into Williams, you’ll find Bearizona, quirky shops, great restaurants and one of Keogh’s personal faves, Historic Brewing Co. For more information, visit www.recreation.gov.
Keogh’s favorite place in the state can be found in Prescott. It’s a short drive via Tommy Camper Van from Phoenix, and it’s just plain stunning! You can paddle board, kayak and venture onto hiking trails that give you stunning views of the Granite Dells. Bring your camera because this Arizona summer destination is one of the most beautiful spots in the entire state. For more information, visit www.prescott-az.gov.
Don’t forget Arizona has a lot to offer south of the Valley! Mt. Lemmon offers Tommy Camper Van travelers a chance to cool off and enjoy one of the best treats in the state, a giant cookie from Cookie Cabin! Get some pizza, too. Make sure to stop at Windy Point for a scenic view, and watch the temperature plummet as you make your way up the mountain while enjoying the landscape change. This is also a great destination for cyclists! For more information, visit fs.usda.gov.
