Rolling Hills of Southern Arizona Along Ruby Road

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


Picturesque, improvised campsite on a hill-top along a primitive forest road. Although there is no stone fire ring available, this spot is still used as a dispersed campsite due to the ample space available and the amazing 360 degree views of the surrounding desert mountains. It can accommodate two to three vehicles and offers good cell service. The area is exposed to the elements, with only small vegetation, but this provides a great view of the sky for satellite connectivity.

Please note that due to the rugged road conditions, a four-wheel drive vehicle is required to access this campsite. However, it is only one mile from the groomed forest road, and it is still accessible by 4x4 vans with caution.

While this campsite provides great views and privacy, the Ruby Road corridor offers many other boondocking opportunities in more sheltered valleys. There are plenty of nice dispersed campsites in this area, so you won't have any trouble finding a suitable location if this site doesn't suit.

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.

Status – OPEN

We’ve been here in-person, but it might have been a while. To our knowledge, this spot is currently open and accessible, but that can easily change, so always have a back-up plan!
