“Beautiful Meadows but the Pollen Won”
Reviewed Jun 20, 2015
Los Burros is located seven miles up a wide gravel road from the town of McNary. The road goes by various names: Vernon – McNary Road; County Road 3140; and Forest Road 224. It is one of those rapidly disappearing campgrounds that is still operated directly by the Apache-Sitgreaves National Forest instead of being leased to a commercial operator. There are 12 designated sites and a volunteer camp host who has hosted at this campground for three or four years. There’s no water, no garbage, no fee, and very nearly no cell connectivity, even with the amplifier and antenna. Both Verizon and AT&T signals would come and go. The host said he got 3 bars of Verizon 3G with an amplifier - we did too, occasionally.
There is a very clean vented outhouse, tall pine trees, and a huge, open meadow that should attract wildlife although we haven’t seen anything except an occasional squirrel. Many of the sites were hiding in knee high grass. We didn't see any sign of burros, but there are a couple small corrals if you bring your horses along. I suspect it would be a very popular place during hunting season.
Unfortunately, BJ's allergies went on the rampage so we pulled up stakes after three days and headed further east.
