Our Review

Tucson is one of our favorite Arizona towns and if you are looking to live the Resort lifestyle this is definitely the top RV resort in the area. With a thriving arts scene, great food, a hip downtown, the University of Arizona, Pima Air & Space Museum, Saguaro National Park and so much more you gotta add Tucson to your travel list.

What can I say about Voyager RV Resort? WOW! This place is amazing! They have nearly everything so you hardly even need to leave. So many amenities in one RV Resort. All the staff we dealt with were super friendly. It’s a very well-maintained and well taken care of 55+ park.

Conveniently located right off Interstate 10, the park is easy to find. Arriving at the gated entry we were greeted by security and directed toward the office building to pick up our arrival packet and pass for the resort. We were then escorted to our site. This is a very large park, there are miles of interior roads that are easy to navigate and walk.

This was our second trip to Voyager RV Resort and both times the resort was not full, even during the busy season, so the spacing between vehicles was very good. On our first trip to Voyager, we had one of the 100 ft. long pull-through sites. On this trip, we had a Premium back-in site that backed to the wash where we could walk our dogs. The sites are long, if not wide, and each one has 20/30/50 amp service and full hook-ups, a cement pad with a small picnic table.

There is an on-site Hotel, restaurant, and bar (which the food was great although the service was slow), convenience store, post office, all kinds of activities, Pools, and Spas, Chapel, game rooms, craft rooms, golf course, etc. There are two dog runs. The one closest to our site was really muddy after a day of rain. But once dried out the dogs loved it. There are two very nice laundry facilities.

If you have one or more dogs you’ll need to make sure you are assigned to a “dog-friendly” loop, since you aren’t allowed to even walk them in other loops.

If you want to get your money’s worth and truly see why this resort is rated so high….take advantage of the activities and amenities. This is not the place to just sit around.

When not experiencing a pandemic, Voyager RV Resort has probably the best set of amenities found anywhere in the state, even including a full-service restaurant and a golf course, and offers more activities than one can count. These amenities are numerous, including a swimming pool and spa, fitness center, game room with billiards, clubhouse, wood shop, stained-glass shop, and a dog park, as well as courts for pickle ball, bocce ball, volleyball, and tennis.

Truly Voyager is one of those “destination” places where many snowbirds come for the winter year after year. It is a must-stay at type of place if you’re in the Tucson area.

Amenities

Voyager Resort has all the amenities you’d want from a campground and more. The staff is very friendly and helpful with any questions you may have. While most of the crafting amenities were closed due to Covid the sports areas were open.

  • Restrooms/Showers

The restrooms and showers looked new and were spotlessly clean when we were there.

  • Laundry

There is a main laundry room near the office area and a smaller laundry room on 5th St. You have to buy a laundry card for $5 then you have $3 credit on it. It is the same card we used at other Thousand Trails Resorts in Arizona. I don’t recall how much it cost to do a load of laundry here though.

  • Dog Park

Our dogs loved running and playing in the dog parks. Plenty of room for them to sniff around and stretch their legs playing with other dogs.

  • Lodge

We didn’t visit the lodge during our stay. With Covid going on we didn’t have a need to go there.

  • Pool/Spa

Voyager RV Resort has three beautiful pools that we didn’t use during our stay since we were so busy seeing the area.

  • Phone and Internet Service

We use T-Mobile for our phone service. Service at Voyager Resort was good with 5G and 3-4 bars of service.

Our Verizon MiFi received 4 bars of service and we were able to use our Fire Stick and stream Netflix with no problems.

  • Mail/Package Service

I’m sure we could have used the mail service at Voyager to receive mail, but we did General Delivery to the Vail U.S. Post Office not far from the resort.
