6 Astounding Arizona Boondocking Locations

I’ve been pouring over my pictures from our Arizona boondocking last fall. Our weather has been incredibly wet this fall, even for Western Washington. Looking through the photos reminded me just how beautiful the Arizona desert is, especially in the fall and winter.

I thought I’d share some of my favorite photos from our Arizona boondocking adventures from last fall and winter.

Roadrunner BLM – Arizona Boondocking

Our beautiful boondocking spot at Roadrunner BLM near Quartzsite. We spent 11 days in this spot without moving to dump tanks. I was pretty proud of myself for lasting that long. What a beautiful location.

Craggy Wash BLM – Arizona Boondocking

Lake Havasu City has multiple boondocking locations available. We scouted several of them. Read more about LHC; Lake Havasu City, Arizona Free Camping Guide.

Marble Canyon BLM

Marble Canyon was perfect in its remoteness but the roads were rugged and not for the faint of heart. Views of the Vermillion Cliffs made for some spectacular sunsets. Free Dispersed Camping – Marble Canyon, Arizona

Coconino National Forest

Moving north, we spent several days near Sedona in the Coconino National Forest. It was incredible and I would have stayed longer if it weren’t for the dust. The views were jaw-dropping and watching those hot air balloons drift on the air currents every morning can’t be beaten.

Vicksburg BLM

This spot is near enough to Quartzsite to enjoy all it has to offer but far enough away to be very quiet and sparsely populated. That’s what I love in a boondocking location.

I’m dreaming of boondocking in sunny Arizona. If you manage to get there this winter, please share your photos with us.
