My original reservation at the main campground was for 2 nights but it was a no brainer to stay longer and explore the area further. First, this is a wonderful park. There is a large volunteer staff that really shares their love of the place. The facility is immaculate currently celebrating its 20-year anniversary. The parking area is enormous with 2 big lots dedicated to pull-in and pull-through RV parking, plus an area for tenters on the south end. The pull-through lot is spacious and reasonably level. However, the slope becomes extreme as you move south past the helipad towards the exit. The views are fantastic with access to all the campground facilities. Sierra Vista is 30 minutes south, Tombstone about the same. A stop at the Historic Fairbank Townsite on Hwy 82 & the San Pedro River is amazing with lots of trails (hiking, biking, horses), old buildings, picnic area & site host.

We camped in the overflow parking area as the campground was full. It’s just a parking lot for RV rigs, and thus all spaces are pull throughs. It is pretty level, but you may have to do some leveling if you are a perfectionist! It is an easy walk to the visitor center, where you pay your $15 for one night of dry camping. There are picking tables & grills nearby. You do have access to some showers that we never looked for. You may have access to the rv dump, we were not clear on that. Nice and quiet. The visitor center offers lots of information about the caverns and their discovery. They have a great gift shop. They offer 2 tours, which are beyond fabulous. We took the “Throne Room” tour because that is the one we could get reservations for. The tours were full about a week ahead, and there are also specialty tours that are not daily. I am pretty claustrophobic and had no trouble with the caves - the openings are enormous and ceilings very very high.
