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.
Located in a canyon next to Burro Creek. The campground is first come first serve with about 30 spots. Multiple clean bathrooms and trash bins through out the camp. Not too far from the creek which you can hear running at night. Be prepared for rocky terrain to get to the creek. Pets allowed. About 12 miles south of the small town Wikieup where we went for dinner one night, but not much to do in town. Overall a nice desert campsite about a mile from the highway.
Clean easy beautiful spot
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.
