Silver City RV Park is walking distance to some good restaurants, the shops on main street, and the museum.

The KOA is on the outskirts of town with better views, but not in walking distance of anything.

Take your pick, urban and nestled among the cottonwoods, or big sky.

Here's another option for Silver City: Rose Valley RV Ranch on the east side of town ... not too far of the main drag ... have stayed there a couple of times...

We might try Silver City RV Park next time...looks nice.

Big Bend is (kind of) right on your way. Actually, Big Bend isn't "on your way" to anything except Big Bend. Great place if you haven't already been. We boondocked there for Thanksgiving several years back - fabulous!

Ditto for Rose Valley in Silver City, we just came from there yesterday..very nice park and not crowded like so many commercial parks. We are at Roper State Park, just northeast of Tucson, very nice state park with some great mountain views, trails and the natural hot tub.

There are 2 totally different big (Texas big) parks in Big Bend. Big Bend NP which has your typical NP amenities and Big Bend State Park which was a ranch the size of Rhode Island. The state park has a popular annual Thanksgiving dinner. No paved roads. There is a upscale but reasonable RV Park at Lajitas which is in between the 2 parks on the west side of the state park is Palomas RV park which is basic and cheap but has the friendliest people I ever met.

We left on our christmas trip yesterday. We spent the night in Junction, on I-10. The temperature dropped to 27 F (which we weren't expecting) so the city water hookup looked like a popsicle in the morning. Good that we had some water left in our tank so we could shower.

We drove from TX today and are currently spending the night at the KOA in Lordsburg, NM.
Tomorrow morning we're planning to drive into Arizona and then head south to visit Fort Bowie and Chiricahua NM (followed by Bisbee, Tombstone, etc).

If we're lucky and find a place, we're hoping to camp in the Chiricahua NM tomorrow (Sunday) evening. Tonight it's supposed to go down to 30 F so we unhooked the city water and added some water in our tank (also to enable us to boondock in the next few nights).

One week into the trip, this far we spent:

- Two nights boondocking in Chiricahua national monument. Great scenery and very quiet campground.

- Two nights in Tombstone at the Tombstone RV park & resort, with hook ups. The campground is close to Tombstone which is convenient. It's a former KOA so not much privacy.

- Two nights in Tucson at Catalina state park: boondocking. This a great park with beautiful hiking trails in the mountains and between the saguaro's.

- Tonight we're staying at a site in Catalina state park with hook ups.
Tomorrow, we're planning to leave the park.
