Benson KOA

Indulge your Wild West fantasies near the Benson KOA, in a quiet, high desert valley just off I-10.

Benson is the gateway to Tombstone, Bisbee, Kartchner Caverns and Chiricahua National Monument. Apache Chief Cochise's stronghold is nearby. 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. Tour Kartchner Caverns and drive or hike past weirdly shaped rock formations in the Chiricahua Mountains. Pool: April 15 - Oct. 15. Max pull thru: 70 feet. Your hosts: Larry and Katie Hall.

Fort Huachuca Historical Museum and Post

Fort Huachuca, constructed in 1877, was one of a chain of forts established to guard southern Arizona against the Chiricahua Apaches, led by Geronimo. It was here that the Army organized an elite strike force that chased Geronimo and his followers through Mexico's Sierra Madre during the summer of 1886, compelling their surrender. Fort Huachuca was also the headquarters of the famed 10th Cavalry, the "Buffalo Soldiers," one of the Army's elite black cavalry corps. Today the fort is still an active Army post and covers more than 70,000 acres, 110 of which are the "Old Post Area." This historic district contains many notable buildings, among them the Pershing House, and adobe structure built in 1884.
