“ Dirty and crowded”

Reviewed Apr 16, 2019

Looks like a refugee camp upon entering. Lots of toilet paper, food trash, clothing strewn about. Saw folks working on cars ( on jack stand) half collapsed tents. Further in it got better but sites still full of trash... sadly BLM May take this away if it continues. Larger sites past the one mile mark, but turning around for a big rig ... more

“Busy but Amazing!”

Definitely a great spot to boondock. Rollins and I were there with friends and at the perfect time of year with the desert wild flowers in bloom. Lots to see and do in Lake Havasu and if you don't mind some driving you can also day trip to many parts of Route 66 like Oatman and Seligman. The access road is bumpy but passable, I've ... more

Yes it’s a dirt road but no bumpier than any other. Big rigs went in no problem. Some spots hard to level. Near the road is dusty with a lot of traffic. Plenty of acreage to r... more

It's not very well maintained so it's rutted and bumpy in spots and after about 2.5 miles in it gets soft in spots and very rutted. About this Campground/Campsites He... more

“Great site to boondock!”

Reviewed Mar 03, 2019

Overall Rating

We had a great time boondocking in Craggy Wash. Highly recommend it, but to get the benefits of this area travel in a bit further than the first few campsite areas. We got a spot around the 3.5 mile marker. It seems that anything past 3 miles is nice. After 4 mile marker the road is a bit more challenging.

Overall pleased with our stay at Craggy Wash and how convenient it is to local stores and the town of Lake Havasu. We picked up water at the water stations around town for .20 cents a gallon and dumped at the state park . Highly recommend stopping here theres plenty of free camping around this area.

Love this place. The beginning can be a bit crowded as most people probably don’t want to drive further up the trail, but if you do, you can find some wonderful secluded spots. ATT cellular wasn’t very good down below, but as you climb up the trail it gets much better in spots.
