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.

Free BLM land

There are multiple spots to choose from along this dirt road (Bloody Basin Rd) to pull off and camp. The road is nicely graded and fairly smooth with a few sections of washboard and rocky spots. We did fine in our 26 ft class C but drive with caution as some of the pull outs do not have turn around areas and there are deep ruts and washouts to navigate around.

There is no water, garbage or any other amenities so pack in and out whatever you bring, and pack out some more if you’re so inclined. Lots of debris left behind by shooters. 

Nice area with trails to hike or bike around. There are quite a lot of ATVs but they were not as bothersome as some of the areas we’ve camped in. You can hear the highway noise and see light pollution from Phoenix but it was not horrible. We did see some shooting garbage, targets and shells laying around but did not hear any shooting when we were there. My dog did get sprayed by a skunk during the daylight about 10 yards from our spot so be aware of wildlife! 

We did see a park ranger while we are there which is always nice. 

Weak but usable Verizon and AT&T coverage but not enough to stream anything.

Roadrunner Campground

There are many campgrounds on Lake Pleasant- we stayed at Roadrunner which is near the Discovery Center. We went there for an afternoon hike on the Roadrunner Trail and ended up going back the next day to stay a night during our RV Xmas trip. We lucked out and they had one site left. Then we REALLY lucked out because the site was water-facing and absolutely wonderful! We tried to have a fire but a few minutes in the(very kind) ranger came by and said that we couldn't have a fire because it was a holiday. Odd. Apparently that is a land law and the state is trying to cut down on air pollution and it's a blanket rule of no fires on holidays. Again… odd. But we still went on a great little walk and wandered around and found a hike across the road through the desert- just watch out for jumping chola!!!! We even saw a jackrabbit! There's a dump station outside the campground area that is used by all the lake campgrounds, but there's two and it gets the job done. You can also pay a small fee and just go there to hike or just go there to dump. The rangers are all super nice!

Great place for a layover

This is a wonderful BLM camp ground for dry camping. There are a lot of spots and they are well spaced so you're not on top of anybody else. Quite a few spots are pull through, if you have a large camper. All the spots have picnic tables with an awning and fire pits. Currently there are no bathrooms they're all newly being built I would expect they'll be done within a few months. There are no reservations so it is first come, first serve. There is also a place to fill water and dump. $14/night.

Cozy

Cozy camp site, fire pit and table at site fire wood there for me too. Out house closest to me was locked that's the only downside.

Free BLM dispersed camping

This is a good boondocking spot if you’re driving along the I-17. We spent one night here. The freeway is close enough to here in the background but far enough that you can easily fall asleep. There are a couple vault toilets when you pull off the pavement. A few other vehicles were camping in the area. We had good AT&T / Verizon service in the area.

Quick Weekend Trip

Easy access to the site and close to hiking, the marina, and off roading trails. Have a store on the site which is also very convenient. Spots are small and not much for scenic views, so wouldn’t be my first choice if you’re just looking for a quick camping trip and spending a lot of time at the site.

Beautiful and quiet

Stayed here 1 night on a road trip back to seattle from kartchner caverns. Nice large pull thru sites. We are over 50 feet long and no problem. Short walk to the creek. More like a river. Some hiking in the area. Spacious and quiet. A short drive to the highway but no road noise

Primitive

This area is fairly big. We arrived on a Sunday and there were a good amount of campers around who seemed to have been there for a while. The area is very close to residential areas, but some spots still feel pretty secluded. We took the first right off the cemetery road and drove all the way down to a nice little clearing. The sunrise/sunset is awesome. It’s close to ghost town road but that road doesn’t seem to be incredibly crowded, which is nice. No facilities or anything, but a nice area to camp just to get away and camp out for a day or so. Our site had 4G LTE, but just a few steps down the road was no connection so if you’re looking for a spot with service just drive around and you’ll find one.
