Tried to find a free spot close to Chiricahua and Willcox Playa seemed to be it.
It is just a gravel spot right of the road, mainly meant for parking your car and hike to the playa to see cranes. We were too early for the birds migration.
However the 2-lane road is quite busy it did not care us. During daytime we were hiking the beautiful Chiricahua (wonders of rocks) and at night there were only a few cars passing.
The spot it self is large enough to accommodate several big rigs.

“Dirt parking lot next to a busy road”

The camping area is actually the dirt parking lot for the Arizona Wilcox Playa Wildlife area. The area is approximately 100ft square - there are no designated sites. The lot will be quite muddy after a rain.

Would not recommend tent camping here.

The lot is next to a somewhat busy 2-lane road. There is also an irrigation pump at one end of the parking lot which is noisy when it is running.

Overall this is as basic as it gets. The Wildlife area has a 2.4 mile trail around the playa - there is not much else to say.

This spot is ok for a quick overnight stop, but that's about it.

AT&T, Verizon, and TMobile all have good signal.
