“So I Creep...”
Reviewed Mar 13, 2018
Two Guns is a Route 66 ghost town with an interesting history, and an interesting present state. I'm going to throw out there that this overnighting/boondocking spot is not going to be for everyone.
There are various buildings in strong states of decay - most are heavily graffitied/vandalized. Set back a bit is an abandoned KOA. It's pretty neat. It could be the coolest KOA you've ever stayed at. And it's free.
It is adjacent to I-40, with the ghost town being the only thing serviced by the Two Guns exit. You can get pretty far back on the property area, if you've got a smaller/4x4 rig. The area is accessible to larger rigs up near the front of the property - if you're cool with pot-holed areas of road. The drive here is dirt, and while the dirt road back to the old KOA is definetely drive-able, it is pot-holed at places - especially currently at the cattle guard to enter the area.
This area is pretty heavily trafficked by interested urban decay explorers, so if strangers poking around the area you are boondocking bothers you, this might not be your ideal stop. There is also quite a bit of litter around the building especially. It's a super neat place to explore.
The property is apparently (rumor) owned by Russell Crowe, but who knows if that's true. The area surrounding these buildings appears to be used/owned by a local ranch - but again, unverifiable. When we were there there were no signs prohibiting ANYTHING - not even a tiny 'no trespassing.' But, I would suggest moving along if you are asked to move along, since this spot is not marked as being on BLM or public lands.
