COCHISE STRONGHOLD, DRAGOON MOUNTAINS, JUST NORTH OF TOMBSTONE, AZ
(22 March, 2004) Get a really good map. We lucked out, I think. There are several miles of unpaved roads to get here. Nearing the campground, you cross four or five streams. The campground hosts had a large RV in there, but I have no idea how it got there! The bathrooms are outhouses, but there is potable water. This was the hiding place of the famous Apache leader and chief, Cochise. Again, a popular place for climbers, filled with a younger crowd in the unimproved campground.
