Best RV park in the Tombstone area

This park is located in the country about 8 miles from Tombstone, AZ. If you're thinking of visiting Tombstone (which survives purely on OK Corral tourism) this is the place to stay.

All sites are long pull throughs. We had no problem fitting our 45' bus + 20' trailer on the site and still had enough room to park our car next to the trailer. The roads and sites are gravel with natural landscaping and the sites are all wide enough (approx. 40') to avoid the crowded feel that is so common in many RV parks.

WiFi is free, but I had to go to the main building to successfully connect. Verizon cell and data work well here, but ATT coverage is poor for voice and data. The laundry room features front-loading washers and dryers that are in very good condition.

The rural location combined with the lack of annoying streetlights in the RV park along with the 4400' elevation and dry desert climate make for terrific stargazing conditions. It's worth a visit here just for that reason.

Rates are very reasonable here and if you have Passport America a 7 day stay is $133 including all taxes. They do charge separately for electric (0.13/kwh) - even for daily stays - which is a departure from the usual RV park practice.

Although this park is about 25 miles south of I-10, we would detour south to stay here again while passing through the area - since it is a much nicer experience than the parks along I-10 in the Benson area.

Overpriced 55+ park catering to snowbirds

This 55+ park is predominately park models and is setup to cater to the snowbird crowd. There are dedicated RV sites (both pull thru and back in) unlike the common park model scenario where your rig is parked on empty park model lots.

We had a blacktopped pull through site that was long enough for both our 45' bus + 20' trailer combination and our car parked behind us. There is a concrete patio next to your rig with a small plastic picnic table on it. The sites are surrounded by gravel - no lawns here.

The sites are also narrow - if you were here when the park was full in season, it would be very tight.

Off season daily and weekly rates are absurdly high and additional fees (resort fee, etc) are tacked on. In addition, they are completely inflexible about the age requirements - if a member of your party is not 55+, don't even think about staying here.

Verizon and ATT voice and data worked well here. Exercise room, pools, etc. are top notch - designed to cater to the seasonal snow bird crowd.

We would only recommend this in the off season (if you can stand the heat), at least one of you is 55+ and you are willing to be located well outside Tucson proper.

Best pure RV park in Tucson - but not for big rigs

This was built as a modern RV park back in the heyday of Beaudry RV Sales and has fully paved roads, sites are gravel with concrete patios that feature metal patio furniture (table and 4 chairs).

There are both back-in and pull thru sites. The pull thru sites are not long enough for big rigs - our 45' bus + 20' trailer combination took up every inch of the site and hung over the concrete road gutters. Once the car was removed from the trailer, it had to be parked next to the bus, blocking access to the patio.

The park was 95% empty but if it were full, we wouldn't have stayed here - too much risk of damage to our bus if there was traffic on the park roads.

The park shows some signs of suffering from the parent company having been in bankruptcy recently. Much of the exercise equipment is broken and the pool wasn't as clear as we would have expected- although perhaps that is normal for an outdoor pool in a dusty desert environment.

Verizon and ATT voice and data work well as would be expected in this urban/suburban environment. Park has security gates for entry and exit - although they were often open during the day - negating their function. Park is walled and topped with razor wire which could make some uncomfortable although we saw nothing in a week stay that looked like a problem.

Just about the only decent choice in the Tucson area that isn't full of permanent renters, park models or age restricted.

Nice park in old mining town

We stopped here for a two night stay and found this a very pleasant park. We drive a 45' bus with a 20' car trailer and were able to navigate the park without problems. The pull through was actually long enough to accommodate us with room to park the Land Cruiser after removing it from the trailer.

There are pull through and back in sites as well as some rental cabins "bunkhouses".

Roads are gravel and sites have a gravel drive/pad and some grass surrounding them. Most sites have a privacy screen consisting of rustic wood / timbers / shrubbery that serve as a wind break as well.

Small laundry on site - 4 top loading washers and 4 dryers (which we did not use). Did not check out the showers/bathrooms. Central dumpster location with recycling bins serves the entire campground.

Wi-fi reception was passable from our site although the speed was slow. Verizon air cards and voice worked well. ATT has minimal coverage in the area - spotty voice service and only Edge data - both would probably be unusable if you don't have an amplified setup like we do.

RV park is on an old farm and numerous antique farm implements are scattered throughout the park. Surprisingly, it is located just behind a residential/commercial area (stores, apartments and homes border the park). Their web site leaves the impression they are in a rural location. Despite the in-town location of the park - it was very quiet at night. There was some road noise from Highway 180 but it was nothing that would be considered annoying.

Overall a very nice property that shows pride of ownership. Well worth a stop if you happen to be in the area to see either Silver City or the Gila Cliff Dwellings.
