Windmills and Ranches by the Arizona Roadside

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


Explore a primitive roadside campsite situated on the outskirts of BLM land in the Arizona desert. Conveniently located along a lightly trafficked dirt road, this site provides easy access as a major artery. Adjacent to the popular Arizona Peace Trail, frequented by side-by-sides and off-road vehicles, it offers a scenic route for enthusiasts.

Immerse yourself in a desert oasis surrounded by Joshua Trees and free-range cattle, with stunning mountains to the east and a flat landscape to the west. While well-used, the site maintains cleanliness with visible signs of life. Positioned at a moderate elevation, it provides some cell service and an unobstructed view of the sky, making it suitable for satellite connectivity.

Accommodating a few vehicles, this campsite is somewhat recommended due to its limited privacy and proximity to the road. Ideal for a brief overnight stay while passing through, the site offers a practical spot to rest amidst the captivating Arizona desert landscape.

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.
