Desert camping

Primitive and far from civilization. Right next to highway 85, so there is a lot of traffic noise. Since this is dispersed there are not any facilities, but surprisingly there is little privacy. Several RVs,but no hook ups. Very close to Organ Pipe Cactus National Monument.

Location

Gunsight Wash is located in Arizona

Directions

Approximately 1.2 miles south of intersection of hwy 85 and 86 in Why on right side of road BLM land. Entrance just south of bridge over wash, through gate.
