Clicking the pics opens the door to a western legend.
Boondocking in Tombstone Arizona. $10 a night, two blocks from downtown...Ya can't beat it with a stick.
It was a great day today. The new boondocking campground in Tombstone worked out just as advertised on the Internet. It's $10 a night to park in a very large dirt parking lot, no hook-ups, of course. There are only four or five RVs here, so there's plenty of room for everyone. You can park in any direction you want so I can park with the refrigerator side of the bronco in the shade.
But the main thing is it's only two blocks from downtown! I can be walking down Allen Street, where Wyatt Earp and Doc Holliday walked five minutes after I leave the bronco. It's great!
And the fact that it's boondocking only, I consider a plus. Since I enjoy boondocking anyway, I would rather camp this way for $10 a night than pay 30 or $40 a night for a regular downtown campground. In fact I'll go further than that... I would rather pay $30 a night to boondock here then one of the awning to awning campgrounds in town. I walked past one of the downtown campgrounds this afternoon, and the RVs were so close together I don't think most people could put their awning out all the way.
But that used to be the way it was before this new boondocking area came along, high campground prices, and pack um in like sardines, which is why I never even tried to stay in town overnight. So these pictures are the first pictures I've ever taken in Tombstone late in the evening.

There's places in Tombstone that are haunted, but isn't one of them.
When you get tired of walking around, there's usually a bench to sit on where you can almost hear the spurs of the Clanton Cowboys jingle jangling as they walk down the wooden sidewalk to the Oriental Saloon.
Madam Mustache Tombstone Arizona.
Except for a couple of saloons on main Street the town is pretty much shut down by 5:30.
This is an RV park a few blocks from town, yes they have full hookups, but I'd rather be boondocking and not have to deal with the crowds.
I have a lot more Tombstone pictures, but I need to save them for when I get to Tucson. Because until the events start next month there's not a whole lot that I haven't taken pictures of at the Pima County Fairgrounds already. So the other Tombstone pictures will be used to fill in my blog when new pictures are hard to come by.
