Nice BLM

You can stop earlier than this just be cautious about the no camping signs. I went back to the empty tanks area and then went in from there. You can get stuck in some sand but if you stay in more gravel area you should be fine. Did see some coyotes so be careful with small animals during the night.…

Simple and quiet

Lots of sites for rvs and tents, usually quite a few folks out there but it is quiet. There are rock fire rings and if you go a bit further down the road there are secluded sites. Would not attempt to get to those sites with a car though. Not too far from Parker AZ and Lake Havasu.

Nice flat open desert pavement

This BLM road spur is across the hwy to the south from the other 139.0 north BLM dispersed area. However this site has much more open desert pavement fingers to camp on and access roads are better. Good cell and likely OTA tv, but no water, trash, restrooms or designated sites. Free BLM dispersed,…

Closest BLM to Earp/Parker

This BLM spur leaves hwy #62 at MP 138.0 at top of hill at boundary of the CRIT reservation. The rocky two track goes north and numerous campsites are available. Since this road spur is closest to Earp and Parker it is popular. Good cell signal and some noted OTA tv signal also. BLM free…

Dispersed BLM or Water Utility?

This site is along the Chambers Well Road ( no signage though), it is noted as BLM trail road #682. Go past the aqueduct ROW and camp on other side....road is a bit loose gravel due to use by trail types. Cell service very good. Hwy 62 noise is likely. This is close to Vidal Jct and there are…

Semi trash pit

This is not a campground or a good dispersed camping by any means. This is a 4 corners intersection with the CA fruit inspection station and a Chevron station with $5 plus gas. The barren dirt lot is just that and the sound of semi trucks would be awful as this is also a 4 way stop intersection. …

BLM dispersed - one of several

One of several BLM Spurs to north of Hwy 62 from Vidal Jct to Earp/Parker. This one is marked as the old wagon road. The turnoff is difficult to see in time so be careful for the fast moving semi traffic behind ya. Lots of campsites along the rocky two track dirt road for a mile or so and then…

Different kind of place

I’m a local so I’ve made this trip more times than I can recall. While I’ve never actually used 4x4, the last couple of miles are no joke. Higher clearance is a must.

Take water. TAKE WATER!

If you can find them, there are trails that will take you east, beyond Alamo lake, into Aguila. From…

Eek

Drove in and drove out. There were a couple RVs which looked broken down and a lot of trash. Did not feel safe. Left to try Cattail Cove, which is 10 minutes away.

So you have a nice Chevron on the opposite corner and then you have a huge dirt lot Which is allowed for overnight camping a lot of truckers seem to pull off there across the street the gas station has propane fill up in case you need and they have just literally a dirt lot very basic. But it’s…
