We stayed in the roadrunner landside campground site 44 with our 30ft TT. Lake side looked nice but we couldn’t get a spot. Good size pad with a Ramada and water/electric hook ups. This place was packed for the entire week. But our site felt pretty private. They allow wood fires and provide a fire ring. The shower/bathrooms were clean. It’s about a 20minute drive to get supplies or groceries if you forgot something. They do sell firewood $7 and ice $3 at the park entrance.

Plenty to do on the lake, fishing, boating, hiking and biking trails. We even spotted the wild donkeys a few times which was pretty cool.

Nice and by the water

Good campground with full hook ups and bathrooms. Close to town still but far enough out makes it great.

Dispersed sites could be better

Not a ton of dispersed camping around here but the spots we found were ok. You’re a short drive or walk to the water where you can boat, fish, hike. Pretty views when you get there. The entrance to the dispersed sites we found are to the left about a half of a mile before you enter the Alamo state park off of Alamo Rd. We were able to pull our 22’ travel trailer in, but it’s kind of a steep climb. Would recommend having a 4x4.

It’s not so bad

Sure, some people don’t know how to pick up after themselves, but I wouldn’t rate it poorly for that reason alone. I always bring a large heavy duty trash bag to pick up whatever I can reasonably fit into my forester. There’s no amazing view but I had no idea there were such forested places in a state like Arizona. I picked up wood at a gas station but there was plenty of brush lying around to burn. The spots are right off the dirt road so I imagine on a busy night it can get noisy and crowded. I camped out on a wednesday night in February and it was very quiet.

AMAZING

From Hwy 93, there is a large pullout for Nothing, AZ. To the right of the pullout there is a cattle guard and a dirt road that forks. Don’t bother with the road to the right, it is a shooting garbage dump. Take the dirt road down to the left- just watch for the occasional dip which might be an issue for large rigs. The road was recently graded so it was nice. 

There are plenty of open flat spaces to park any size rig or even tent camp since the ground is sandy. This place is beautiful! The road further down gets quite sandy and may be difficult unless you have 4x4 but we made it a nice distance in with 26ft class C just fine and found a spot that could potentially fit at least 4 other rigs. 

Large bouldering rock groupings among large old junipers and other desert flora. It was quiet with minimal road noise from the highway. If you’re into rockhounding there is a lot to be found here. 

This area is mostly trash free down the dirt road but at the highway turnoff trash is everywhere. We picked up around out spot but there wasn’t a whole lot. No amenities, bring your own water and pack in and out and maybe pack a little extra out to help keep this place beautiful and open for camping. 

Mountain lions, coyotes, deer and free range cattle in the area. Only heard coyotes in very early morning, though there was a decaying animal carcass near our spot as well as deer legs. 

Poor, barely usable Verizon reception and AT&T was ok. 

There are 4 trash cans at the pullout at Nothing but all the trash has blown all over the lot and the surrounding grounds. Not sure if the trash is picked up or if this area is maintained at all.  Nothing is a tiny little ghost town with an interesting history.

Good for One Night

North Ranch is an Escapees RV park with large gravel lot and closely spaced sites. Full hook up with only 30 amp available. There is also another area for dry camping. This is a good place if just passing through and need to do some laundry and dump and fill and take a nice long shower. The sites are fairly close as most RV parks are, clean flat gravel sites. Nothing special but nothing much to complain about either.

Road noise was constant as was ATV use as many of the campers had them. Covid restrictions in place and a mask is required.

Amenities: 

2 laundry areas with washer dryers for$1.25/each open 24/7 

Dog walk and fenced in dog park near the main road 

Showers Cactus garden walking area- very beautiful and well care for 

Propane on site 

Recycling bin- mixed recycling accepted 

Garbage dumpster 

Dump station(was closed when we were there) 

Exercise room 

Back in sites are$23 for escapee members and$28 for non members. Pull through sites are a few dollars more. 

Weak Verizon and AT&T with occasional streaming if you don’t mind waiting for buffering.

First to Review
Free dispersed camping, some spots with trash, some without

There are many nice places to pull off of Eagle Eye Rd but unfortunately they were mostly taken or difficult to get to in our rig so we ended up at this particular spot for the night. There was so much garbage, diapers, appliances, etc that we expected people to drive up and dump some more trash at any minute, but the night was surprisingly extremely quiet, especially for a Friday night. 

While I do not recommend this particular spot, only because of the garbage, the area between Hwy 60 and Hwy 10 off of Eagle Eye Rd is beautiful and mostly BLM and would be great to stay in for a few days.

We did not hear any coyotes this night, and very few chollas, but we had to watch for broken glass and old ammunition laying around in the piles of garbage. 

Cell service is weak in this area. ATT was almost unusable, Verizon was a little better but still very weak. Eagle Eye Rd is paved and an easy drive, but the pullouts to camp will depend on your rig.

No amenities here.  Near the Harquahala Mountains Wilderness.

Spectacular views

Not a lot of sites at this location maybe 15-20 if you crammed them in, but if you don’t have a big rig their is a few before getting here in State Trust land ( Vultures peak) for a small one time annual fee coming from Wickenburg. Only 4 star because your not going to get the seclusion of most dispersed camping and the cell service is spotty. Verizon was 2-3 bars LTE and T Mobile 1-2 which normally is not bad but most of the time it wasn’t usable. Plenty of trails that begin at the Vultures Peak trailhead and a lot of washes to hike. If you plan on making the hike up to Vultures Peak be prepared, the last quarter involves using your hands to crawl up to the peak. And for those wondering why it’s called Box Wash, it’s the name of the wash a hundred feet south of where the sites are located. My favorite site is the last one before the trail head which overlooks Box Wash. Their is plenty of room at the trail head to turn around most big rigs if the trailhead is not too busy which is day use only with a vaulted toilet.

Primitive camping with dump and water

We stopped here to use their dump station and fill our water tank.  This campground is a great place to feel like you're in a primitive campground, but with a dump and water available.  

Sites are available first come first served.  Self pay kiosk to pay.

- Day use area is free

- Camping is $14 (includes dump fee)

- Group camping is $50

- Dump & water without camping is $10

(make sure to pay the dump fee before you try to use the dump station. The host was uncomfortable with us dumping first and paying after, maybe they have been burned by too many dump and runs, I don't know).  Dump station is clean and there are two separate water hoses for cleaning your tank and one for filling your fresh water tank.

Beautiful area with a view of the Burro Creek bridge.  There is a really pretty cactus garden you can walk through.  Trash bins with aluminum recycling throughout.

Porta potties available while the restroom building is under construction.

Easy access for larger rigs.  

Zero Verizon or ATT service.

Burro Creek, nice place.

Camped at Burro Creek on Jan 13th 2021 for a couple of nights. BLM campground, sites have tables, fire rings, and cabanas. Water is available, as well as a dump station. There are two bathrooms and a group campsite as well. No utilities at any sites, but that's typical for BLM. Price is $14 for regular sites, first come first serve. Discounts are available with passes.  Campground sits in a canyon, nice hiking and star gazing. Water close by but wasn't flowing much when I visited. Fishing is possible when conditions are right. Gets crowded on weekends. No cell service.
