Just a short drive from the RV park is Chiricahua National Monument in Willcox. A hike through Chiricahua will make you feel as though you’ve been transported to another world. The area, also known as the “Wonderland of Rocks,” is known for its bizarre and unusual rock formations. Whether you plan on driving along the scenic highway, which highlights some of the park’s showstopper formations, or trekking along the 17 miles of day trails, there is so much to see. You’ll be able to gaze up at the rhyolite pinnacles that reach more than 100 feet, explore ancient lava flows, and travel through caves and faults. The park is considered a “sky island,” meaning that the area rises above the landscape and feels as though it is an island in the vast desert below.A little south of the RV park is Coronado National Forest in Benson. Another “sky island” in the area, Coronado National Forest is a surprisingly lush landscape just waiting to be explored. With oak, juniper, and pine and conifer forests, you may forget you’re in Arizona. But if you need a quick reminder, the park is also home to sections of the Sonoran desert and canyons. So whether you plan on challenging yourself while hiking through the mountains, relaxing by one of the lakes or streams, fishing, or canoeing, endless opportunities await at Coronado.There’s something about this region that is simply otherworldly, and a trip to Saguaro National Park near Tucson will further prove that. The saguaro cactus is a giant towering tree with “arms” reaching toward the sky and is often featured in cartoons. Saguaro National Park surrounds the northern border of Tucson and is one of the best places to see these bizarre evolutionary wonders. You can head out on one of the ground-level trails to explore the unique flora (and maybe even fauna) of the Arizona desert, or you can challenge yourself with a hike up into the foothills and mountains of the region. No matter what you choose to do, make sure you pack plenty of water.
History buffs looking to learn more about the history and culture of the local region will enjoy spending some time at the Chiricahua Regional Museum. The museum houses exhibits about the local Native American tribe, the Apache, the history of ranching, and the beginnings of the railroad in the Tucson region. There are also a variety of events that the museum hosts, particularly educational lectures and events thanks to the on-site research center.An afternoon at Rex Allen Museum may provide a break from the Arizona sun. Real-life Western movie star Rex Allen’s life has been immortalized in this hometown museum. The museum is also home to a Cowboy Hall of Fame where you can learn about some of the Southwest’s greatest cowboys and rodeo stars.Those who want to learn about the prehistory and early cultural history of the region can spend time at the Amerind Museum. You can view historical artifacts and works of art from the Zuni and Navajo Nations, learn about the archaeological efforts happening in the area, and learn something new at the rotating exhibits. The museum also hosts a variety of events, such as painting and basket weaving workshops, movie nights, and jewelry and art sales.When you book an RV in Cochise County, you may need to restock and refuel during your visit. There are plenty of gas station and grocery store options in and around town, so you can keep the rental motorhome vacation flowing smoothly.While you will be able to find some excellent Mexican food in the area, there is another kind of cuisine you won’t be able to find anywhere else: Southwest Native.
