“Nice boondocking sites some just off the paved road ”

We found a nice level spot fairly close to the road amongst some brush but it was still quiet as it's not a busy road. There seemed to be a lot of places where you could boondock and only one other RV was within sight.

When we arrived (a Sunday night) someone was just pulling out in a truck towing an OHV so obviously this place is popular for off road fun and probably quite busy in a warmer season/holidays/weekends etc.

Since our stay was nice and quiet we consider this a 4-star boon docking experience. We even had decent signal.

“BLM Dry Camping”

Agua Caliente Road offers free dispersed camping. It’s BLM land so you can camp pretty much anywhere. There are many spots to choose from, some a short distance from the paved road and others much further in. It’s dry camping so bring what you need with you since there aren't any stores nearby. There are many OHV trails in the area so bring your toys.

The info that I’m providing here is assuming that you’re entering from Old US 80. If you aren’t comfortable travelling too far down the dirt road, take the first left at 33.258684, -112.812067. This is a large flat area suitable for multiple rigs. However it seems to be a popular OHV area so expect noise and dust.

We drove 2.5 miles on the dirt road and turned left onto a smaller offshoot and at 33.259556, -112.853306. There was a site a few hundred feet from the main road which is where we camped. This site can fit any size rig. If you want to be further from the main road you can continue down the same narrow road another .25 mile or so there a few other sites as well. Don’t go too far without scouting it out first because it gets bad quickly with nowhere to turn around.

Another good option is to travel a bit further on the main road and turn left at 33.261288, -112.865512. This is a large area not too far off the main road suitable for large rigs.

If you’re looking for more solitude try turning off the main road at 33.254819, -112.888915 and go down the smaller dirt road about ½ mile. There are several sites in there that kind of set into a small valley. This road is not in great condition though, so check it out first before committing.

I had 2 bars of AT&T on my hotspot using an external omni antenna which was enough for slow surfing and email but not much else. I also carry a booster and directional yagi but they didn’t seem to help at all.
