    In this video, I give you a taste of the lush Sonoran desert landscape around our camping spot near Ajo, Arizona.

    The campsite is located off the Ajo Scenic Loop Drive and allows 14 days free dispersed BLM camping. It’s a wicked cool spot for photography and hiking.

    Even though it’s close to town, it feels like a million mile away. There is lots of wildlife around, especially birds.

    We camped here in early February, and the weather was near perfect. Sweet location!

    That one cactus looks like he was dancing.  Rock & Roll Ya All!  Is that the Scenic Loop Road that is off of Bate Well/Darby Well Road just south of the mine?  Looking at Google Maps and adding pins to my Avenza Maps so I know I am in the right spot.  Handy with your tools and an artist eye and touch.  Great combination Dear Sir, I am Grateful.


    Hmmm…we may have to head over that way next! We’re in Tucson at the moment. Experiencing some casino dry camping at the Casino Del Sol. We spent a few days at the Desert Diamond here too and were thrilled with all the air activity! Good thing we are early risers! 8 am wake up calls of jets roaring take offs over head! Car alarms going off in the casino parking lot added! We even saw some javelinas while we were set up there! Nice spot! We’re loving Arizona!!


    great!  so, after say 6 days your waste tanks are full and your fresh is empty. Q: where to dump and refill?

    The closest free dump and water fill is in Gila Bend at the Holt Shell station, that’s where we dumped and filled on the way down, or you can pull into one of several RV parks in Ajo or Why and pay a fee, usually 10 bucks.

    Or a person could head an hour down the road to Organ Pipe Cactus NM and book into the campground there. It’s worth a visit if you haven’t been.
