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


Experience a stunning campsite nestled in the picturesque Sonoran desert, situated at the base of rugged desert mountains. Surrounded by towering peaks on all sides, except to the northwest, offering a panoramic view of the valley. Adorned with lovely vegetation including saguaros and organ pipe cacti, this site promises a captivating desert experience.

While the ground may be slightly uneven, requiring leveling for vehicles with sleeping platforms and posing challenges for ground tents, the site accommodates two or three vehicles comfortably. Adjacent to a striking rock formation to the east, the campsite features a primitive stone fire ring for cozy evenings under the desert sky.

Enjoy some cell service and excellent satellite connectivity, enhancing your connectivity amidst this remote setting. Although secluded, signs of life suggest its popularity among campers. Moderate privacy is expected, with the possibility of encountering visitors and fellow campers on weekends.

Accessible by any four-wheel-drive vehicle, larger vehicles may experience scratching due to close vegetation. Despite this, the campsite is undeniably charming and highly recommended, with its only drawback being the slightly uneven ground. Immerse yourself in the beauty of the Sonoran desert at this captivating desert oasis.

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.
