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.

Busy

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.

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.

Great hiking

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.

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.

Our little spot.

Backseat bar is a great place to have a few cocktails. The restaurant serves up good food at a reasonable price. RV park seems to stay full,, soooo something is going good there. We love it, hope you will also.

Stay away

This place is a dump. Dirty, dusty gravel parking lot with people right on top of you. Spaces are not even close to level. Not the place to hang out if you have Covid concerns. Might be ok for a quick overnight. Better to head south to Wickenburg and check out their dispersed camping and RV parks
