We've lined up Tombstone RV camping parks right in town for your convenience. We can clue you in to all the choices here. We want to help so you won't miss out on the best pick for your own preferences. You can skip right to the area you prefer to try. Here's the Menu:
We ourselves have stayed in quite a few of these local Tombstone RV parks. That's because we always were regular Tombstone visitors before moving into town. We've owned a variety of RVs - from mini motor homes to Class C, also travel trailers. Then we gave it all up for a little while. Recently, we got back to it again - going way back to the basics. We got ourselves a nice little Teardrop style RV camper. Have you taken a look at them yet? They've become sort of the latest rage!
Right here for you, though, we give you our personal input on local Tombstone RV spots, our own reviews. Yes, we let you know the ones we've personally tried, and what we experienced.
Even if we haven't been to them all, we do drive by them. We observe their lay-out all the time. We get an idea of how crowded they get, and how fast they fill up. We talk to people who bring their rigs there.
Some do not advertise well, or much, or even not at all! We can give you tips on those! All to get you the best selection, insider info, and help for making your choice. Plus see those a little farther out that may suit your taste, especially at busy times when local options are filled.

Wells Fargo RV Park - 215 E. Fremont Street, (520) 457-3966
The most convenient Tombstone RV park to town. The entrance is right off Hwy. 80, just after you pass 2nd Street
It may be the most popular RV park in Tombstone.
They probably have the most amenities of in-town parks overall

You can email them for detailed rate & reservation info:
email@example.com - (or call their number above)
We've stayed here in a pull-through site near the corner of Allen & 2nd Streets. It was fine and the rate was reasonable. The site was a little tight, but not the worst of those in town for sure. Really, most Tombstone RV sites in town are a little tight.
Office & Entrance Accessed From Hwy. 80 - Fremont St.
Some of the Sites Available at Wells Fargo
Stampede RV Park - 201 W. Allen Street, (520) 457-3738 or (866) 409-4778
Our RV in a pull-thru space.
As you come into town via Hwy. 80, you'll see their signs to follow. This Tombstone RV park is on the West side of downtown.
They have pull through sites, but kind of tight! (See more below.) They also have a Tenting Area with no utilities
They are pet-friendly, have an area for long-term RVs, restroom/showers & laundry rooms.
A small restaurant is on-site.
Rates are per/day, increased for holiday weekends, discounts for a week's stay. Also there's military, AAA or Good Sam discount
OUR REVIEW: We stayed here for a few nights in Autumn 2015. They've had some equipment in there & may have made some improvements. But we haven't brought an RV in here, so can't say for sure.
If they have WiFi, when we were there we found it really weak.
Our small Class C just fit into their pull-thru. No room on either side for anything. You can just about reach out & touch your neighbor!
Sites around the edge are much roomier, but are back-in. We would've backed in, but I guess they were reserved, since he wouldn't let us have one. But no-one came on them while we were there!
The pull-thru sites are spaced tightly.
Private laundry, showers, rest-room.
Silver Belt RV Park - South 11th Street & Allen Street, (520) 457-3404
Best to inquire a bit ahead. The "office" is the restaurant/saloon next door. Ask for Steve or Addie (owners) about their Tombstone RV park. Monday and Tuesday the restaurant (Depot Steakhouse) is closed. The saloon (Johnny Ringo's) is open every day, around lunchtime, so someone's always there around then. By the way, they make the best pizza in town!
Full hook-ups, mostly pull-thru sites. Permanent renters are on about half the sites. There are often unoccupied sites available, and the rates are terrific.
Shower/rest-room laundry key provided with rental
Nice concrete tire pads make for level sites
OUR REVIEW: We stayed here for 3 months when we purchased our Tombstone home a few blocks away. It was a fixer-upper, so we stayed in our RV while renovations were ongoing.
We were completely satisfied here. (For us, what was nice was the close proximity to our [not so] new home in Tombstone!)
The price: so reasonable for a Tombstone RV parking spot.
The option to get a meal next door (did we tell you? The best Pizza in Tombstone!)
The hospitality of the owners
The nearby 4 block walk to town
Little more roomy sites than some others in town
A convenience store (Apache Market) right around the corner
Our Class C RV - On the left at the Silver Belt RV Park.
Empty space at Silver Belt - Our RV: the Class C in the back row, left.
Tombstone Dry Camping RV Park - 365 South 3rd Street, down the hill from the Tombstone Historic Courthouse. From Toughnut & 3rd, continue South down 3rd. You'll see the entrance off to the left.
Tombstone Dry Camping
Dry camping, no facilities - so self-contained vehicles handle it best
Rates: $10 for 24 hours
Open lot with cones marking Tombstone RV spaces
You should be a resourceful person to camp here. Able to not need any conveniences or amenities. Many RVers can do it for a short time, I'd think.
Car camping rate also: $3 for 24 hours. Bring everything you need, because this will be difficult for more than just overnight for car camping & not having an RV with conveniences. BUT:
FYI - nearest public restrooms are at the City Park, corner of Allen & 3rd, one and one-half blocks North.
Be sure to get supplies like water at local convenience stores. Check Here>

This Tombstone RV Park has a shuttle into downtown, it's not walking distance (about 1-1/2 mi.) - nice to provide this convenience!
OUR REVIEW: We stayed here many years ago. Can't even remember exactly when, or even if it was under the same ownership.
At that time it was a fine place to stay. They didn't have a shuttle at that time, so that's a nice added convenience now. We would've used it, since I know we drove into town from there. We definitely didn't walk the busy Hwy. 80.

A Wonderful Natural Spa!
Because of the lake, this park has fishing, as well as a swimming area. Hiking trails up the mesa are superior! What's really sweet is the hot springs. They've created a natural spa from it. We took our nine and ten year old granddaughters here in our travel trailer one winter. They loved getting in that hot tub, had so much fun! We've always loved this park. Another section, Dankworth Ponds just South, has fishing & a nice kids' playground.
