Enjoy the scenic Sonoran Desert at Burro Creek Campground. This peaceful area has long been a favorite stop of travelers on nearby Highway 83. The campground features restrooms with flush toilets and sinks, potable water, and a dump station. Most campsites are equipped with a metal fire grill, trashcan, picnic table, ramada, and a level parking spot. There are recreation opportunities nearby, including hiking and wildlife viewing.
All individual sites are filled on a first-come, first-served basis and the group site may be reserved by contacting the BLM Kingman Field Office and here is a 14-day stay limit for all campsites. Fees for the campground are $14 per night for individual campsites and $50 per night for the group campsite.
We stopped off Hwy 93 into Burro Creek Campground, the sites are well maintained and level. No hook-ups, but the restrooms are clean and kept up. The creek is a wonderful place to relax and fish. Beautiful scenery and the Hwy bridge in the distance is majestic.
Along the Joshua Tree Highway, US 93, near Wikieup AZ, lies a small and lovely BLM campground. The well paved road drops right off from the highway and into the river valley below. With less than 20 first-come, first-served sites, this cozy campground is a destination in and of itself. Each site has a covered picnic table and grill/pit, water spigots throughout the campground, and clean bathrooms with running water.
The creek flows through a stunning sandstone canyon and offers the chance to fly-fish, or swim/wade during lower water times. Boating might be possible during higher water times. We visited during the spring 2019 “super bloom” of desert wildflowers which was a stunning addition to the rugged vistas. Hiking opportunities through the many washes are nearly limitless, but there are few actual trails near the campground. The BLM has done a great job with interpretation signage, and a small education garden on the desert plants of this area amidst the transition between the Sonoran and Mojave deserts.
The nearest town is Wikieup which has a gas station but not much in the way of food. Kingman is the closest larger city, about 40 minutes away, with all that you need.
Note: We had a weak mobile signal in the campground and surrounding area.
