“Boondocking off Haeckel Rd”

Reviewed Mar 06, 2017

Overall Rating

We were told about the recreation area at the BLM field office in town (Safford) but didn't want to camp that far out of town. We picked a spot just off Haeckel Road where we have great AT&T LTE cell coverage (no boosts but labeled it extended coverage) and can still see US 70. It's BLM land and completely free. There were other RVs ar... more

“One of the highlights of our 17,000 mile road trip”

Reviewed Aug 11, 2016

Overall Rating

After driving in and riding out an intense snow storm the night before, we pulled into Hot Well Dunes to reboot. This is just what we needed. Practically free, private sites, hot springs, ATV trails, great people. The springs are solar powered and drain out every night. Their temperature was just right, not too hot. We enjo... more

“Cheap Dip in the Hot Springs”

Reviewed Mar 22, 2016

Overall Rating

We really just came for the hot springs and were a little sad that they weren't available for use after sun down. After all, who want to soak in hot water in the hot desert in the middle of the day? Well, we did...but it would have been nice to have the option to dip after dark or during sunset. More info can be found in our blog post ... more

“Hot Springs in the desert”

Reviewed Dec 20, 2014

Overall Rating

I camped here the night before Thanksgiving. This is an interesting spot, there are two hot tubs in the middle of an ATV playground of sand dune. If ATV noise and dust bothers you, don't go here as it is an official OHV recreation area, and there are a lot of them. It is also a pretty big party spot. I had been parked for an hour or... more
