You may even feel like you're living the life of the rugged old West cowboys, cowgirls and pioneers! Well maybe not quite - as you can access many modern conveniences, even though you're sleeping in a tent!

We used to go tenting, but then upgraded to an RV. But we remember what we liked in a campground when we had a tent. So that's what we keep in mind in our recommendations here. There are a number of places in Tombstone to roll up a deluxe RV.
But where's a Tombstone campground that you can you pitch a tent? Well - we'll show you...
