The urban campground in Tempe that we stayed in while we commuted to the Road Scholar program was a ten minute drive away and suited our purposes perfectly. Judging by the early hours that some of our neighbors left and returned, we'd guess that they were working in the area. The campground was clean, quiet and well organized. There was even a light rail station right across the street if we had wanted to go downtown without the car. But space is precious in an urban setting and the price per night relatively high. So we've moved 25 miles to Lost Dutchman State Park, where the sites are spacious and the view spectacular. It feels remote, but groceries, gas and other necessities are still a short drive away.
