Find the RV Park in Tombstone That’s Right for You

By the way, are you all ready for your Tombstone RV trip? We have a great checklist that helps you to make sure you don’t forget anything!

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.

Tombstone RV Parks

Walking Distance To Town

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
  1. Full hookups, pull through sites, rest-rooms with showers, areas for tents with electric & water, free WiFi, laundry, camp supply store.
  • You can email them for detailed rate & reservation info: 
  1. [email protected] – (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.

Stampede RV Park – 201 W. Allen Street, (520) 457-3738 or (866) 409-4778

  • 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.
  1. If they have WiFi, when we were there we found it really weak. 
  2. 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! 
  3. 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!

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.

  • 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:
  1. FYI – nearest public restrooms are at the City Park, corner of Allen & 3rd, one and one-half blocks North.
  2. Be sure to get supplies like water at local convenience stores. Check Here>

  • OUR REVIEW: We stayed here many years ago. Can’t even remember exactly when, or even if it was under the same ownership.
  1. 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.

Overlooking the Park from the Mesa Trail’s Summit

Because of the lake, this park has fishing, as well as a swimming area. Hiking trails up the mesa are superior! Too bad the hot springs is now defunct – dried up. So the natural spa they created from it is just a remnant from the past.

Another section, Dankworth Ponds just South, has fishing & a nice kids’ playground. Plus the hot springs there is still in action. But no spa! Picnic tables available.
