Stones throw from the olde West

This is a bare bones campground but at $10 a night right next to the old town Tombstone, it's perfect. There is plenty of sun for solar. Some people used generators. It was very quiet. The host, John. Is very friendly and helpful. The campground is a short walk to Tombstone. Good place to relax and…

Great spot

We're here on January 21. 20 RVs. Quiet and I'm told the Sheriff make passes throughout the night. A great deal at 10 bucks 5 min walk to historic Tombstone. Park all day and spend the night.

Great spot!

Stayed two nights and was a great area. Ended up getting a spot near the main road but overall was very quite. Insane views and just a unique area. Empire Ranch had potable water to fill up and there are a ton of vineyards within 20 minutes. Was super windy one day but definitely coming back.

Close to town

It's a small dirt circle with little to no privace and they charge 10 dollars a night whether or not you're an obnoxiously large RV or a chump just backpacking.

As it's lacking any facilities showers, water, holes in the ground for bathrooms, you're honestly better off finding some free blm land.…

Peaceful and beautiful

If you are looking for a place that is easy to get in and out of as well as peaceful and remote, this is it! There’s a few other campers here, but lost of space between sites so we can never hear them. Great space to walk the dogs around here. It’s gets a little windy at times and the cows can make…

Great location

It's very clean and the couple that runs it are great and very helpful! As you come in they have a small store with fresh veggies and other stuff. Minutes from downtown Tombstone and everything to see.

Amazing campground!

Exceeded expectations!! A moderate 4.6 mile hike after 16 miles on a dirt road. The hike up is BEAUTIFUL and not overly steep (but watch for snakes). The campground was great. We were the only ones there and used site 3. It was very secluded and had a nice big bear box and a nice fire ring. I would…

It was fine

It worked in a pinch and was close to the national park entrance. Unfortunately, I arrived in the dark so be sure to go very carefully up the mountain. It’s very difficult to find a spot at night time because you cannot tell if it’s already taken or not. Sites are not the most level nor very big…

Tranquility

We spent two nights at this amazing campsite. This campground offers 7 official and several unofficial sites that are scattered to assure privacy. Campground is primitive with no toilets or water so come prepared. Gorgeous 360 views of nearby mountains. Easy road access for low clearance vehicle…

Beatiful scenic views

It is an absolutely beautiful area, and the views more than make up for some of the shortcomings of the site. Our site was more secluded, and it was very peaceful and serene at times. There was a full moon when we went, but I would imagine the stars are just brilliant out there on darker nights.…

Tombstone dry camping

We had a great time camping here for a few days. Close to all the fun things to do downtown, only $10 a night, quiet and very friendly camp host!

Peaceful

Stayed 5 nights, very peaceful, approx. 7 sites at Cieneguita CG, others at Oak Tree Canyon (not a real canyon) and the old Airstrip area. Clean vault toilets at the ranch house parking and potable water, approx. 2.3 miles from campsite. Other small pullout spots along some of the side ranch roads.…

Pull into bottom lot!

Right off the “western strip” in Tombstone. Walking distance! The directions only take you to the first parking lot, travel down one more for campers/rv. Only $10, no hookups or amenities but talk of electric in the near future. Also rodeo right next door, not sure on the dates for that, we missed…

Great spot!

This is a huge group campsite with a few fire rings and plenty of space to spread out. It can be reserved during certain times of the year so be sure to check out the BLM site. Otherwise it’s free and in a great spot just off the highway and near Empire Ranch. You should definitely bring bikes to…
