Click the pics, you might find a place you want to boondock.
I've done this before, but I figured I would do it again since it's been a while and show everyone the boondocking situation at Box Wash. Like I've mentioned in previous posts, I don't know how long this area will be available for boondocking because the BLM... I guess nowadays I have to spell out, "Bureau of land management," so people know what I'm talking about since there's more than one now, gave it to Maricopa County, so now it's basically owned by Phoenix, Arizona. They're planning on turning this place into a Park, where you will still be able to camp, but it will cost seven dollars a day to get in the gate and $30 a night to camp. And they will have enough rules and regulations to make sure you can't enjoy any of the things we all come here to do now.
So the first picture is the Jeep trail that leaves the large parking area where a lot of us boondock and goes about 1/4 of a mile with boondocking spots all alongside it. There Is a turnaround at the end and you can come back. But don't let the term "Jeep trail" fool you, all that can be accomplished with even a large RV.
This is a typical pullout next to the Jeep trail; some spots are bigger, some are smaller, and some of them, like this one, have room for more than one RV if you brought your friends with you. All of the boondocking spots have beautiful views of the mountains, hills, and desert.
this is a smaller spot but I've seen medium-size class "C's" in here. It's actually a nice spot because Box Wash runs right behind it and there's a slope behind that fire ring that you can walk down to the large sandy Wash.
I think this pullout would hold the biggest class "A" bus. I'm standing in another pullout on the other side of the Jeep trail taking this picture. the Jeep trail is that lighter dirt area in the lower middle of the picture.
there's room for several RVs in here and you don't have to back-in you can turnaround at the end of this long pullout. That's the Jeep trail on the right.
This is a real big spot, I think you could get two class A's in here. That's the Jeep trail on the far right.
when you get to the end of the Jeep trail there's a cul-de-sac where you can turnaround. That's a restroom on the right side. You can't see it because of the restroom, but there's an entrance to a hiking trail that wanders through the desert just as far as you want to go that's got some of the tallest Saguaro's I've ever seen. On the left side you can see a gate for a road that's for four-wheel-drives. You can walk or bicycle the road of course and it goes for miles and miles, but it's too rough for the FamilyTruckster
