Old Tucson Studios

Posted by on February 4, 2010

We left Tucson a few days ago, making it to Mesa, AZ and planned on staying at Twin Palms RV Park. This venue had only twenty-one units and wasn’t a park at all. I was behind a storage facility and we went past it twice before we found the entrance, which is just a turn into an asphalt lot. It’s amazing to me all the time what is done with photographs on the net to make places seem far greater than in actuality. Needless to say, we couldn’t fit the motorhome. Luckily we headed down the road to Maverik Park and found a spot. We settled in and the next morning I set out in the truck to find someplace with an “it” factor. However, before we left Tucson, we made a brief stop at the Old Tucson Movie Studios. This brief stop turned into a four hour journey. If you didn’t know Old Tucson has provided the filming background for over a hundred westerns. It also was the home of heavyweights like Gunsmoke, Little House On The Prarie, Highway to Heaven, and the list goes on and on. It was a bit nostalgic for me to walk in the same steps as the Duke, Kurt Russell, Clint Eastwood, Dan Blocker and the Bonanza group, among others. But instead of dwelling, why don’t you just enjoy the slideshow.
