“Plenty of space, but can be very windy.”

Reviewed Feb 08, 2016

Overall Rating

We stayed in two locations near here (one a couple miles down American Girl Mine Road on the right, and one a couple miles further up Ogilby Road, on the right). It's pretty easy to find places to camp along either road. Both times it was a good place to enjoy some privacy, isolation, and free camping while being relatively near Yuma. ... more

“Quiet and remote”

Reviewed Feb 08, 2016

Overall Rating

While this site is a little far from Yuma (30-40 min), it was a great spot for a few reasons: 1) tons of space to camp, 2) great Verizon signal, and 3) very little dust, 4) well-maintained roads in. We stayed here for quite awhile. There's not much to do nearby (a small ghost town to the north, and Yuma to the east), but it was a g... more

“Easily Accessible”

Reviewed Feb 26, 2015

Overall Rating

The pros of this spot is that it's easily to get to, lots of options and easy enough to find some land to yourself. There's also great cellular signal in the area. Otherwise, the land is pretty barren. But there are some great views of the sand dunes and surrounding mountains. Yuma is a bit of jaunt away (close enough to do some ... more

“Desolate camping, convenient location”

Reviewed Feb 16, 2015

Overall Rating

This is a fairly barren part of the desert, with stunning sunsets and sunrises and some desolate beauty, but you need to look for it. The nearby sand dunes are wonderful, we took so many pictures. This spot is convenient for Yuma and for crossing the border to Algodones for dentist work, prescriptions and Tequila (should be avail... more

“Easy access, close to town”

Reviewed Feb 05, 2015

Overall Rating

We have stayed off the Ogilby road a couple times in the last two years. Lots of places to boondock, flat ground, easy access for any size rig. There are always several other campers in this area, but it's pretty easy to camp away from other people. Close to Yuma, and Algodones. Tumco ghost town is just down the road, and that's a pret... more

“Pretty Isolated Spot”

Reviewed Jan 29, 2013

Overall Rating

I can't help but think of the Tom Petty song when I think about boondocking at American Girl Mine Road outside of Yuma. Anyway. This place is pretty awesome. When we camped there it was the less populated road just past Sidewinder off of Ogilby. The winds were howling in January, but the temperatures were perfect. 50's at night ... more
