We were really happy to find the majority of Ghost Town Rd in paved or smooth shape. Make sure to turn right on Cemetary Rd and then the camping area is on your right. Plenty of room for our truck and horse trailer which is nearly 50ft. I think there are some long term campers here for which we rated the site at four stars instea... more

leave Congress on Ghost Town rd, cross over cattle guard and continue on dirt road toward mountains. Monday evening probably 8-10 rigs scattered widely. Closer to the mountains the locals pull up for shooting practice but not disruptive. The brush is interspersed with cactus, the sites are clean, the birds are singing and it's really q... more

“It was good”

Reviewed Jul 07, 2016

Overall Rating

The ghost town was private property, you can't get near it. We gave it 3 stars, because the ghost town was the reason we picked it.

We are tent folk, so we still had a good time. The stars, and scenery were great. Very quiet, too close to people. Most of the RV people were very friendly.

“Beautiful site”

Reviewed May 02, 2016

Overall Rating

This was a one night visit as we traveled through the area, but we would definitely go back. We took the road off to the right, just past the "Old Cemetery" -- GPS: 34.188691, -112.852888. Beautiful site, beautiful views, working Verizon signal. There were others camping in the area, but none close enough that we could see them ... more

“Second time here”

Reviewed Mar 18, 2016

Overall Rating

I camped here with friends about the same time last year. We had a spot near the hills. I'm back this year, alone, at a spot closer to the newer cemetery than to the hills. It's flat and fairly smooth with vegetation on three sides that slopes down to a wash with lots of animal tracks. I can see a couple of neighboring campers but ther... more

“Unofficial Shooting Range”

Reviewed Mar 04, 2016

Overall Rating

We thought we scored big with this spot. Its pristine beauty right at the base of the mountains seemed perfect. But alas, nothing is perfect. After two months of wintering in an RV park, we were ready to dry camp for a while. The dirt road from Ghost Town Road is fairly smooth. There were several areas to access lower elevations for ca... more

Reviewed Mar 04, 2015

At 3200' elevation, a lush, quiet, private area, ringed with mountains. Most sites have rocked fire rings. A few longterm RVs since rangers never come around. Wickenburg 30 mins away, Prescott an hour north, or Phoenix (Surprise) an hour east. Congress Water dpt sell up to 50 gal water for $1. Transfer station charges $1/bag. SKP'S No... more
