“Pretty Spot just off the AZ Trail”
There are certainly easier boondock sites to get to that are in the area. This one is 5 miles of rocky dirt road from Parker Canyon Lake.
The altitude is just shy of 6,000ft msl. So- not high enough for summer camping (too warm) and probably too cold for winter camping- but just right for spring and fall.
There's a nice flat circle area with spots for small to mid-sized RVs - maybe 3 or 4, and some nice tent sites just off this. I was surprised to find a few other vehicles parked in the area, mid-week, mid-November, but they left by the weekend. Some of the trees (scrub oaks and juniper) are large enough to cast welcome shade.
No cell service within a few miles. (either a 4mi hike or a 3 mi drive away)
For us- the key feature was direct access to the Arizona Trail Passage 1- and the Huachuca Mountains. (hiking/trail running). The National Forest "wilderness area" starts about 1/2 mile to the NE, so mountain bikers need to head from here in the Westerly direction- towards Scotia Canyon and Parker Canyon lake.
This is not an official trail head (there is one 1/2 mile up the trail)- so, I presume it's suitable for camping. You may get hikers/backpackers/trail runners coming through. We only saw a handful in 3 days.
If this area is taken, and you think you can continue to drive further up the road into - the road gets even rougher and I didn't see any other spots nearby. There may be some stream crossings- seasonally. 4WD recommended. Even just to get here- there were a few steeper and rocky sections.

Right off a rough dirt road. Not my favorite
Another free alternative to the Lakeview Campground
Worth the drive
