“Lots and lots of space overlooking the desert, feels like boon docking but with amenities”

Reviewed Jan 03, 2015

Overall Rating

The above rate is based on a $40 weekly rate for dry camping. They also offer extremely reasonable monthly and seasonal rates.

This campground has over 200 acres on fairly flat desert land with 600 randomly placed campsite. Most have no number as each RV can choose their spot between various desert plants.

Weekly campers select their own space in the weekly row which overlooks the desert, daily campers select from the next row across from the road behind the weekly row. Monthly/seasonal/annual campers may select their space from the rest.

The campground has restrooms, showers, dump stations and water faucets. Showers are dated but were clean when I used them (once), although there was a sign in the restroom informing guests that they are cleaned once a week and asking them to please do their best to keep the area clean.

Generator hours are between 8:00 and 12:30 and between 3:30 and 9:00, but those needing to use generators for extended periods of time were "encouraged to use the full-hookup campground across the road, Coyote Howls West". It was extremely quiet when we were there and seemed like most people were not running generators. We ran ours for one hour in the morning and one in the evening.

There is a clubhouse with Wi-Fi and some computers. We didn't use it, as we have our own Mi-Fi. The office provides a calendar of activities, many hosted by the Why Senior Citizens, some located at the Community Center just down the road. These include movies, exercise, crafts, hikes, breakfasts and more. We didn't attend any activities.

It's a great place for dogs with lots of soft dirt, not many cacti, and lots of room to roam, dogs are supposed to be on leash. Also, they should not be left unattended, we saw a coyote right by our campsite one day, although he ran away when he saw us coming out. There is other wildlife around, including lots of birds, and there are also some feral burros in the area, which we didn't see.

There is one general store in Why with basic groceries. The historic town of Ajo is ten miles from the campground and has an IGA. The Visitor Center at the Organ Pipe National Monument is 20 miles south on a 65 mph road, with one border patrol checkpoint checking those returning from down south. The Mexico border is 24 miles south of the campground, and Rocky Point, a popular seaside destination in Mexico is about an hour and 45 minute drive from Why.

There is boon docking on BLM land nearby, but this campground is a great alternative for those concerned about signs stating that "smuggling and illegal immigration may be encountered in this area. Avoid encounters with suspicious groups” posted around the BLM land and other parts of the desert.
