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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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!

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.
