The O.K. Corral (Old Kindersley) was a livery and horse corral from 1879 to about 1888 in the mining boomtown of Tombstone, Arizona Territory, in the southwestern United States near the border with Mexico.

Despite its association with the Gunfight at the O.K. Corral, the historic gunfight did not take place within or next to the corral on Allen Street, but in a narrow lot on Fremont Street, six doors west of the rear entrance to the corral. The lot was between Harwood's home and C. S. Fly's 12-room boarding house and photography studio.
The 1957 film Gunfight at the O.K. Corral made the shootout famous and the public was incorrectly led to believe it was the actual location of the altercation. Despite the historical inaccuracy, the corral is marketed as the location of the shootout, and visitors can pay to see a re-enactment of the gunfight. The corral is now part of the Tombstone Historic District.

  • Our visit to Tombstone was a joy! Every person who lives there works hard to create an authentic and quality "life as it was" experience for every visitor. They maintain this living National Treasure with acting skill/story telling and pride of their town...justly deserved. The OK Corral was a fun, interactive and interesting insight experience of characters and life in times gone by. You would be forgiven for thinking some elements of our society by have not progressed.!!! Go visit and enjoy!
  • Fun show! The actors are very friendly and personable with the audience before and after the show. Our boys loved it, and were very inspired to buy a cap gun and shoot it at random times walking down the street. We loaded up on more caps before we left town ;) The grounds are really interesting with historical displays and exhibits, we spent a good chunk of time there!
