“Road was rough going in. Should recon the road before deciding to camp there.”

Overall Rating

Crystal Hill is in the Kofa National Wildlife Refuge just south of Quartzite, AZ. It is 5.6 miles from AZ 95. The road is a bit rough but passable. This is a 14 day BLM camping area where you can also collect surface minerals. Verizon service was available. Doubtful if there is digital TV reception.

“Away from the craziness of Q”

Reviewed Jan 01, 2015

Overall Rating

You have to want this one. When you leave the highway you'll see a BLM sign that says "No Camping Beyond This Point" that only applies until you reach the border of the KOFA Wildlife Refuge about 3 miles from the highway. The road was very washboarded - easily traveled, but very slow with the trailer. There were four other units in the area when I was there during Q's RV show in January 2013. It's a great place to get away from the crowds but be based close enough to visit the big show.

It would appear that this area was a developed campground at one time with a few concrete footings remaining. There was some, but minimal, traffic on the road - mostly side-by-side quads that would be eastbound in the morning and return in late afternoon. Apparently hunting for crystals on the hill nearby is a draw - I just liked the quiet.

Verizon connectivity was non-existant on the phone but I could get 3 bars of 3G with the antenna and amplifier.
