There is BLM free camping a few miles out of town, and there is an inexpensive dry camping rv park in town. #TombstoneAZ history and points of interest all wrapped up in a nice tourist attraction. etc... IMO, the best restaurants in town are OK Cafe and Big Nose Kate's Saloon. There is a privately owned dry camping RV park for $10.00/night within walking distance of all the action. The owner also has a business right there that srlls some grocery items. @Third and Survey Shopping. OK Cafe has gluten free toast!!! And they sprinkle cinnamon on the hot chocolate whipped cream. At OK, we were seated "European style" at a large table with 3 other people, so we got to meet some interesting travelers and had a very enjoyable breakfast & conversation. Not all seating is like that, but it was a busy weekend and they use the large table this way. Some of my food photos are after I ate some, so not as pretty. Hey, I was hungry.😊 Van Life Pantry - Nomadic Pantry
