“Boondocking”

Reviewed Jun 20, 2017

Overall Rating

We stayed in our 42 ft motor home and enjoyed our stay! We had no difficulty finding a level spot and as we have been here previously we knew where we wanted to park. This is a boondock area-no hookups.There is plenty of space to walk a four legged friend-just be aware that you are in a desert area and at certain times of the year you ... more

“Only because it's free and close to Tucson”

Reviewed Jun 02, 2017

Overall Rating

This is not a nice area to camp, lots of fulltime residents and kids partying, noise and gun shots... but it's free and close to the city to get things done for a few days. We've stayed here twice and it's one of the only places we don't really feel comfortable leaving the trailer and dog unattended. It was also PACKED with people w... more

“BLM Camping”

Reviewed Apr 07, 2017

Overall Rating

We came on a Sunday afternoon so only a handful of campers were here. We had no complaints. It was quiet and people seemed considerate of others around them. We were pretty spread out so when busy I could see more noise and such. It was pretty clean when we were there, considering. We enjoyed our stay. As a side note, it looks like t... more

“Gravel area with lots of trash”

Reviewed Dec 16, 2016

Overall Rating

We needed a location near to Tucson for a couple of days. This is a BLM area that's been abused. Lots of broken glass and trash. Numerous spots to park your rig. There are a couple of nicer spots at each end. Unfortunately, they were all taken and we had to park in the middle. Yesterday, the neighbor next to us decided to empty ... more

“Great spot for a few days.”

Reviewed Mar 13, 2016

Overall Rating

We were in Tucson to finish up a solar installation and decided to try out Snyder Hill for our first complete night off the grid (well sort of). Overall it's a nice place to stay for a couple of days, close to shopping and visiting Tucson area. We found the fellow campers to be friendly and helpful. On the weekend, ATVs zoomed by kicki... more

“Free But Not Great”

Reviewed Mar 12, 2016

Overall Rating

I have a love/hate relationship with Snyder Hill. You can't beat "free" especially around a large city - however, it is not the best boondocking site for several reasons. The road noise on weekends is loud . . . motorcycles, racing cars, regular traffic. The place is usually packed which makes it hard to find a campsite with a little p... more

“Great”

Reviewed Jan 04, 2016

Overall Rating

We've camped here twice in the past year, both for several days each time. It is approximately 7 miles east of I-19 on the West Ajo Highway. There is lots of random room to park, but be careful not to block road areas. If you're lucky you might get a shade tree. It is a great area for solar if you camp on the west side of the hill. ... more

“First Official Boondocking Experience.”

Reviewed Oct 17, 2014

Overall Rating

Not a bad place to have our first official, off the grid, boondocking experience. We stayed here to meet up with some friends, and thoroughly enjoyed the experience. This spot is close to activities we wanted to do with the kids anyway, and we love free camping. No problem with noisy neighbors, and we spent an hour one day hiking t... more

“BLM Near Tucson”

Reviewed Feb 04, 2014

Overall Rating

For the most part, boondocking at Snyder Hill is pretty good. It's close to Tucson and it's free. On the downside, there's a bit of road noise, it's a little bit crowded and there was a mentally ill homeless couple camping next to us. Their screaming in the middle of the night prompted us to move to the other end of the campground a... more
