Description

"White Mountain Wildlife Area". It was very quiet. We were the only ones there. Dry camping, but free, clean and absolutely beautiful.

drive back over mile and a quarter and you will see multiple loops going to the scrub forest. coordinates of the location originally posted are wrong! if you like being isolated where rednecks go to get drunk and shoot their little pp extensions, have at it. this whole part of Arizona is covered by these people who love to harass travelers! beware!

Lots of good overnight spots here. I loved the big open vistas from my site. About 2 bars of Verizon here

If you drive down the hill from the first little loop area you see there is a fire ring but also some broken glass and other party spot trash. Got a bag full of shards. Probably better further down the road away from the highway.

They also have 2 bars Verizon out there. We also got water from Averys gas station in Springerville and there’s an RV park behind it. I called ahead and they said I could hook up a hose near the ice machine and fill up our tank. They also have propane too.

Great place to dry camp. We followed the advice and went a mile down the road and took the turn off to the right about a mile down. There is a road that you can follow down and there’s several places to camp. We have a sequoia and a 33 ft TT and it was fine. Kind of a bumpy gravel road (washboard) at 20 mph to turnoff. Fine spot if it’s dry. There is a bit of trash and drug paraphernalia scattered about as well as lots of animal bones. One truck came by us at night but left. Otherwise only one other trailer a ways off. Would definitely come here again trying a little deeper off the road.

Quiet, scrub, nice place to hide away for a day or two

This is a beautiful location on the bluff overlooking Springerville. It’s mostly grassland but the first pullout has a tree you can park behind. Not especially level but okay. You can see and hear the highway from this first spot, but the noise is not bad, especially at night. Big rigs might be able to get here.

3 bars of Verizon LTE.

Lots of noise from highway and dirt road. Locals use as a hangout/drink spot. No one bothered us in our tent, but it was loud. Better spot for a van or small rig for free.

it is a beautiful place, a little bit windy. In the second night a pickup made a loop around us, to see who we are!? But then he left, all okay

Just 1 mile further along the track, where you see more trees at your right hand side. Take there the first track there to the right and you will find within 0.1 mile a lot of choices to put your rig or tent. Quiet and peaceful. Easy access for all rigs. A lot of firewood available.

update: found a dead dog in the bushes and about 8 deer/elk legs and body parts laying around. so, yeah.

good spot for one night, beautiful sunset.
a bit of highway noise and lots of traffic on the gravel road all night long. probably not good for a light sleeper, but earplugs would probably do the trick.

Lookout area just before exiting forest. Drive through gate, then follow road to left, there is a small loop where you can park unseen behind a large scrub
