Shady Dell RV Park
Bisbee, AZ

 

The Shady Dell RV Park located in the picturesque Arizona town of Bisbee is a throwback in time to the mid-century complete with 50's memorabilia, aluminum trailers, a yacht, and a throwback diner. The Shady Dell started up in 1927 as a place for weary travelers along Highway 80 to stop and grab some rest.
