Indulge your Wild West fantasies near the Benson KOA, in a quiet, high desert valley just off I-10 (the "southern route" to L.A.). Apache Chief Cochise held out for years amid the granite domes and sheer cliffs of the nearby Dragoon Mountains. Just south, Tombstone hosts daily re-creations of the infamous O.K. Corral shoot-out. Tour an old copper mine near the Mexican border in Bisbee, where steep hillside streets and Victorian buildings evoke the mining boom days. Drive or hike past weirdly shaped rock formations in the Chiricahua Mountains and tour Kartchner Caverns, one of the world’s greatest living caves (reserve well in advance). Or relax by the KOA pool, perhaps after 18 holes on the new San Pedro Golf Course nearby. Potluck and burger get-togethers greet KOA guests on alternate weekends in winter.

This is an older KOA with long term sites and overnight spots. Well away from road noise but only a few miles from grocery and WalMart. The sites are level, gravel with trees between them. Full hookup is $35 per night. Good signage and easy access for big rigs. The owners, an Asian couple, have been there for 9 years. They are friendly and helpful. We have been there twice and use it as a jumping off point to visit Bisbee, Pima Air Museum.
Nothing fancy but value for the money.
