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.
Beautiful area, but it seems that everyone else thinks so too. I waited 15 min in line to get up to the check in booth just to get in the park and when I left the next day the cars were backed up again. This park would be a 5 star plus if it wasn’t for the amount of people and the price for a rv site in a county park. The rv park within was nice, not too close together. The semi developed park is what I was looking for, no electricity or water at the sites, potable water in the area but only allowed 16’ trailer or less so that left me out. The developed sites all had electric and water at each site and one or two had sewer, but at a premium. It cost an additional $8 per night. Their was a dump station at the entrance of the rv park for everyone else.
This is a FREE BLM camping area.
There are multiple places to pull off along Vulture Mine Rd that have dirt roads that you can take further back. We made a couple of attempts in our 26 ft Class C and almost got stuck and had to back out so be aware that some of the roads look good then suddenly become impassable with no turn around. We ended up near the Vulture Peak trailhead with an easy pull off and a view of the peak (33.880550,-112.820176).
There is no water or garbage so pack in and pack out and pack out more than you brought in if you feel inclined. There is a pit toilet bathroom at the trailhead entrance. This is also an ATV area so watch out while hiking because most thought they had the right of way.
There is good hiking to the peak and across the street there is another access to hike in. There is some road noise but it is not too bad., overall a quiet place. This is a trailhead so there is a lot of day use traffic of vehicles, ATVs and hikers but the nights were quiet and pleasant. Chollas are everywhere and we constantly had to pick them out of our dogs so be aware. We did not see any wildlife except some birds but heard coyotes every night.
Note: There is a nice spot about 3 spots in that has an old table and a couple of broken chairs sitting in it. No one came into that spot while we were there for 7 days so though it looks like someone is saving a spot, but I think unfortunately someone just left a bunch of junk there.
Decent Verizon and AT&T coverage.
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.
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.
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
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.
There’s a good amount of campsites but they’re spread out enough to feel like you’re more secluded than you are. It can get a bit noisy with all the OHVs but if you have one yourself it’s a nice little spot. The center pavilion can also be a great place to chill with larger groups.
