1 Review of La Posa Tyson Wash BLM Long Term Visitor Area
First to Review
Dispersed camping for a nominal fee ($40 for 14 days; $180 for 7 months from Sept 15-April 15; free during the summer months) and just 2.5 miles out of town. You cannot hear Interstate 10 or Hwy 95 if you choose a site close to the mountains.
Services available on-site include a few extremely well-maintained pit toilets and trash dumpsters. By paying the fee, you also have access to both potable/non-potable water and a sewage dump at La Posa South, just a few miles down Hwy 95. You are allowed to stay in one place during the duration of your stay, or move around the region. Be sure to register at the BLM office at the entrance to this area.
We stayed for a 5 days and found this area very quiet and peaceful. Just a few RVers were running gas generators, while most had solar panels, which always makes things more pleasant. Some folks have their area established for the season hence the funny signs around the property.
Gorgeous views of the surrounding mountains and very easy access to hiking, mountain biking, and OHV trails. There are some Native American petroglyphs and grinding holes south of this area, along the main wash (accessible via mountain bike or OHV). Ask the BLM office for details as they are tricky to find, but worth it.
Sunrises and sunsets are endless and jaw dropping! Easy access back into town for food, gas, firewood, laundry, and just about anything an RVer or camper could need.
