Convenient, secluded, beautiful

I enjoyed this site so much that I decided to stay additional days. It is about a 30 minute drive West of I-10 just North of Tucson. Great paved roads all the way until you get to Pipeline Road. I camped a half a mile down a dirt road that was not too bad… Just take it slow and easy.

There’s about five or six flat and level campsites for the first half mile. I do not suggest going beyond the deep ravine. There’s a very narrow cattle gate that I would not want to try to pull my rig through.

I managed to be the only camper here. I felt safe. There is a quarry not far West. You can hear the sound of trucks traveling up and down Pipeline… But it’s not a problem.

My Verizon signal was lightning fast.

The views are spectacular with lots of greenery. Shrubs, mesquite trees, saguaro cactus, and distant mountains. There’s a feeling of being in the wilderness while only being 30 minutes away from Safeway and Chevron. Tucson is not far beyond.
