“Peaceful and lots of space ”

Reviewed Apr 15, 2018

Overall Rating

We stayed here for an overnight weekend trip and loved it. There were several other boondockers here but it didn’t feel cramped at all. There was plenty of space, and it was definitely big rig friendly. The large area is literally right off the road so it isn’t difficult to find. There’s a little bit of traffic but it didn’t bother us.... more

We had a great campsite that we were lucky to get . Holiday weekend so it was busy and had some traffic. OHV and dirt bikes were running during the day but operators were very respectful when driving by . Tons of 4 wheeling fun down in the river and a bunch of different routes to go down ( tons of fire wood down in creek ) . Overal... more

“Great Base Camp”

Reviewed Mar 26, 2017

Overall Rating

We came mid week, found a nice spot near the entrance. We enjoyed this area, plenty of roads to drive and rockhound. At the Fastmart 76 gas station in Wickenburg you can dump and fill your tanks and they also have fresh water for about $10 to fill your tanks. They allow small bags of trash when using their services. We ate at Anitas f... more

“Excellent”

Reviewed Mar 05, 2017

Overall Rating

Plenty of room for big rigs, quiet, some road noise but not in the evening much. Some hikers - nice trail at end, even had a few horseback riders come in. Will be back. Convenient to town and only about 45 min from Phoenix if you need a big town.

“A greta desert envronment! Lots of Saguaro Cactus. ”

Reviewed Feb 15, 2017

Overall Rating

This video describes how to get to Free Camping just a few miles west of Wickenburg, AZ. The first site is actually AZ State Trust Land and you need a permit. The next site is Box Canyon and is a free 14 day BLM camping area. This desert is outrageous! Cell service is a bit spotty in the BLM area. See my Video at: https://youtu.be/PtT... more

“Pretty spot but super crowded”

Reviewed Feb 14, 2017

Overall Rating

This campground was really nice, lots of great spots. I don't know if it's because we came on a Friday but it was really crowded, mostly with big rigs. We managed to fit into a spot, but still felt too close to the rig beside us. People walking by didn't seem to friendly towards us when we waved and said hello. I would like to try back... more

“Pretty spot in the desert”

Reviewed Jan 17, 2017

Overall Rating

This was a pretty spot. Basically a big pull off area that you can park in with hiking trails leaving right out of the camping area. There are a lot of off road vehicles here. It was pretty busy the day we were there and kind of noisy with all the off roaders. Pretty easy access to the area, we stopped as we were entering Phoenix cause... more

Stayed here on Christmas Day. Drive past the big rigs parked on the road and you'll find a few individual sites. Site we stayed at had a huge firepit and enough space to have friends come and stay.

“Not what I want”

Overall Rating

Very nice scenery, but the camping area is too close to the highway with too many large RVs for the for the size of the place. Cell service was only 3G. I didn't stay.
