I have found that this is a nice location. If you want to visit in this area, it is very conveniently located about three miles from the Organ Pipe National Park. There is a campground in the park. It offers paved parking and barbecue grills, but it still dry camping. Since this is free I find it a lot better for dry camping. It is close to a town called Why, that has gas, and a restaurant called Grannies that has the best burritos this area has to offer. Can also get ice and propane at the gas station there. I chose to Camp close to the road, because I don't mind the noise from traffic, I feel it is a little soothing at times personally. The BLM area goes back several miles and if you don't mind driving in a little farther in, it is much quieter. I really like this area BLM land and I'm sure to come here again and again.

Nice Winter Hideaway

Very nice location only 4.5 miles from town market. The sign entering the park says "Permits Required" but I spoke to some campers that came here every winter and said that stopped about four years ago and no one there that I spoke to had one.

There is and area for horses and a picnic area with tables and grills.

Nice place to stay when passing through or to stay awhile.

Twin Peaks is a beautiful campground

 Although it is in the desert, the sites are well spaced. No utilities at the campsites, but plenty of water faucets and the restrooms were very well maintained. We hiked the trail out of the group campground and also the Victoria Mine trail. Beautiful desert sun set and sun rise.

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.

Campground closed

This campground is temporarily closed for building the wall.


This is the most sterile and organized campground I've ever encountered, overall, it isn't my style of camping. There are plenty of RV sites with full hookups, spots are organized so it is simple to get the right size spot. If you arrive after hours, there is a list of assigned and available sites for the night. Bathrooms are full amenity and very clean. The area is remarkable however. Good for road and gravel cycling and very photogenic.

Calm and isolated

It is absolutely amazing here. Plenty of space for disperse, primitive camping. This seems like a popular place for primitive camping, but it is so easy to find a quiet private spot. The Ajo MTB trails are here and there is OHV.

It Is What It Is

We agree with the previous reviewer’s assessment of this place, however, we decided to brave it and stay the night anyway because we needed hot showers and to get caught up on laundry and this place is very cheap. It is pretty run down but we did not feel unsafe here. There are dog running around loose so if you have a pet watch out for them.

This is the kind of park where you just have to take things for what they are. When we arrived, there was nobody in the office, so I left a message on the machine and we parked and waited (we did not have a reservation and had not called ahead). Eventually a friendly guy came out, said he was busy repairing something and apologized for missing our call. He directed us to a spot and told us to pay later and went back to work. The cost was$25 ($12.50 with Passport America). We never saw him again and the office was never reopened so we slipped the payment through a slot in the door. 

We didn’t plug in to power here, as our surge protector’s lights indicated an open neutral. There are loose dogs running around all over the place, and nobody seems to mind. People obviously live here permanently, and you can tell they have been living here a long time based on the happy chatter and greetings, especially when the work day was over and people started coming home from work. Two young entrepreneurs came and knocked on our door and asked if they could clean up the cement pad outside our RV, which was very cute. 

Early in the morning, around 5am, we heard people getting up and leaving for work, and later in the morning we saw kids on laptops all over the place, doing their schoolwork. 

The night was loud here, roosters crowing (all night!), dogs barking, trains, and cars. The sign out front said they have showers, but we didn’t see any. The laundry room was functional. 

Good cell service Verizon and AT&T. 

Sofia’s Mexican food in walking distance was delicious, and there are several other fast food options in walking distance as well.

Good flat campsites.

Darby wells Rd. Has some good dispersed campsites right off the road. With flat cleared out areas. There isn’t a lot of traffic along the road either. So I would recommend this for an overnight.

Close to Town, Lots of Space

Managed by Lower Sonoran BLM Field Office 

Very quiet so much glass and old rusted tin cans, possibly from when mining was active here. Lots and lots of shards of broken glass, it’s part of the landscape almost.  There are open mine pits, some fenced off, some not so be careful especially if you let your pets run free. Constant sound of planes overhead from the nearby AFB, with occasional low flying jets. Overall a nice place if you can get past all the broken glass, some areas worse than others. 

Not too many chollas but there are some road in. Alley Rd was flat and level, some washboarding, ok for any rig just take it slow. Coming off of Alley Rd to pull out spots could be tricky for bigger rigs. There were a few nice looking spots that we didn’t attempt in our 26ft Class C because the road up was too steep.  Deep dip on Alley Rd coming in, about 1.8 miles from where the paved road ends, we scraped our bike hitch both coming and going. At around 32.355867,-112.884902. Any rigs longer than about 26ft probably can’t make it further in than this spot if coming in from the north, or you can enter from the other side of the loop and come in that way.

Good verizon 4bars on 4GLTE, ATT had 2-3 bars on 3G, very slow.
