You must be a member or a Patreon subscriber to see location.


Experience the rugged beauty of the Sonoran Desert at this private, dispersed campsite accessible by any four-wheel drive vehicle. Nestled in a rocky valley on BLM land near Wickenburg, Arizona, this hidden gem offers breathtaking mountain vistas, diverse desert flora including majestic saguaro cacti, and a glimpse into an active mine's operations.

Enjoy unparalleled privacy tucked away from the main road, ensuring a tranquil escape with minimal traffic noise. The site comfortably accommodates one or two vehicles and features a primitive stone fire ring, perfect for starlit campfire gatherings. Be prepared to level your vehicle as the terrain is naturally uneven.

Embark on a scenic adventure along the winding dirt road, showcasing unique geological features and hidden treasures waiting to be discovered. While cell service is unavailable, the town of Wickenburg is just a 30-minute drive away for necessary amenities. Keep your eyes peeled for wild burros roaming the area, adding to the authentic desert experience.

Always tread lightly, leave no trace, respect the wishes of landowners, and leave campsites cleaner than you found them. Be the very best steward of our public spaces that you can possibly be so that they remain public.
