"Gorgeous, Private Sites"

Accessing this campsite is challenging after a rain, but not too bad if the road is dry. If the road is wet, I only recommend 4WD vehicles. The 4-5 designated sites share a pit toilet and are right at a trailhead that leads down to the Purgatoire... Read more

"On the Arkansas River, 10 Min to Buena Vista"

We enjoyed the three nights we camped here in May. The road leading up the the campground was being graded when we left this morning, though in the actual campground there are some boulders to navigate around. I think about 12-15 vehicles could... Read more

"Closest free camping to the South Rim"

I’m still pinching myself that we were able to camp so close to the Grand Canyon, in a nice spot, for free. We drove less than 5 minutes off the main road to find a spot and the road was in good shape. We had a big site to ourselves, surrounded by... Read more

We camped here on the weekend and it never got loud or crowded. The tent sites are big and each has at least 2 picnic tables. Views of the mountains are incredible and we enjoyed being surrounded by the saguaros. The volunteers at the entrance who... Read more

"Nice views, lots of ATVs"

Stayed in a compact site right by the road. The view of 4 Peaks was gorgeous but the ATV noise and dust made us glad to leave.

"Dusty, Not Much Privacy"

We stayed here on a Tuesday in April and there were a lot of others tent and RV camping. We could have squeezed into the official camping area near the pit toilet, but it’s basically a gravel parking lot and we wanted more privacy. We found a... Read more

"Good overnight on the way to Petrified Forest NP"

The sites are right off of the road and easy to access. We camped in the first site on the right which is large enough to accommodate any size rig. Primitive camping, some road noise, plenty of trees to provide some privacy. We were the only ones... Read more
