Journey to SXSW – Part 3: Benson & Tombstone, AZ

The 3rd stop on our way to SXSW . . .

COCHISE TERRANCE RV PARK (Elevation: 3600’) – By the way, almost every local business has “Cochise” in its name.

Campground Notes:

  • A really, really, really nice campground. Modern facilities, friendly staff, well-planned sites, great dog walk through a wash, laundry, showers, pool, hot tub, . . . and they gave us free tickets to the campground dinner that night. Jeez! All for a whopping $25 per night (with Escapees discount).
  • Beautiful views of the mountains and, of course, those superb AZ sunsets.
  • However, like most RV parks, the WiFi was sketchy.
  • Cell coverage: 4G (5 Mbps)


On the advice of a fellow camper, we took an afternoon trip to Tombstone which is about 25 miles south of Benson, AZ.

We weren’t expecting much . . . some history mixed with Western schlock and expensive, bad food. You know – a tourist trap.

And we were so right, but we loved it because it was so over the top.

It all started when we bought tickets to a “gunfight” . . .
