Overall Rating

We found Arizona State Trust Land camping off Gardner Canyon Road. In this video, we show you two separate Arizona State Trust Land camping areas located off of Arizona Highway 83 and Gardner Canyon Road. An Arizona State Trust Land Permit is required to camp here. There was no Verizon, AT&T, or T-Mobile cellular service at this location at the time of our visit. Lack of cellular service weighed on my overall rating for these twin campsites.
