“Another great Campendium location”

Reviewed May 14, 2018

Overall Rating

This was my first visit to Saddle Mountain BLM and the information in all of the great Campendium reviews was very helpful so I'll try not to repeat that information. As someone mentioned, going in from Tonopah is the best route, it's paved all the way to the camping area. I checked out most of the dirt roads into the area and the one... more

“Perfect first time boondocking”

Reviewed Apr 10, 2018

Overall Rating

Dispersed is the word. Wide open desert at the base of saddle mountain. Our 33’ MH (with toad) made it through the rough road threading between large wild plant life acquiring a few desert pinstripes and we found the perfect site with fire pit, views for miles and little to no passer-by traffic. Huge site. Could have been used for ... more

“Beautiful spot”

Reviewed Apr 02, 2018

Overall Rating

Gorgeous spots right at the foot of the mountain. Very little traffic. There were two other rigs but quite a distance away from us. I would definitely come back!! P.S. If you don't feel like camp grub one night, on the way in is a tiny little Mexican/American restaurant called Oscar's. It is worth the visit!! Great food, friendly folks... more

“Plenty of room for everyone!”

Reviewed Mar 29, 2018

Overall Rating

We read all the other reviews and came in off of Courthouse Rd. around mile marker 13. The dirt road was good at first, but quickly got very rough and rocky. We stopped to scout on foot after going in about a half mile and found a nice big spot just a little farther on with no one else close by. This was great boondocking - quiet, ple... more

“Great place to Boondock”

Reviewed Feb 23, 2018

Overall Rating

We met up with friends here and enjoyed a week of boondocking. Great place to hike around. Lots of trails for 4x4 and mountain biking. Note: If you are coming from the West Google Maps and GPS might tell you to get off at the Salome Highway exit. Don't do it! It's a dirt road until you get to Courthouse Road. Instead, drive to Tonop... more

This was a wonderful surprise and I stayed the whole time limit. Quiet with great hiking trails. It has a peaceful quality hard to describe. It's not far to go to get anything one needs I stayed at the last dirt road from the Salome/courthouse exit.

“Great open space”

Reviewed Feb 20, 2018

Overall Rating

We loved this BLM spot outside of Phoenix. We didn't really leave the entire time we were here, there are not any towns nearby, but there was enough space for the kids ro run around and play. Space is open and you're not too close to neighbors.

“One of the best BLM’s”

Reviewed Jan 30, 2018

Overall Rating

Everyone pretty much covered the beautiful pictures and experiences. What I can add is the number of entrances. It starts at Courthouse rd and continues for over a mile. I counted 10, where Salome hwy intersects with Courthouse rd is the actual beginning. The GPS cords given is the third entrance which has a very rough road. If you hav... more
