NW Arizona Campsites for RV Boondocking

These are the NW Arizona Campsites we've occupied in our RV Boondocking Travels. I've arbitrarily marked off the NW quarter of Arizona as being that West of Page/Flagstaff/I-17 and North of Alamo Lake/Cordes Junction.

Kaibab National Forest RV Boondocking Camp


Directions: Go south from Ash Fork/I-40 on HWY 89, approximately 7 miles to MP 356.8 (just south of MP357) to Forest road #35. It is a cattle guard on the left/East side of the road. Slow down and be prepared for it... if you watch the MP markers you'll be ready. We camped approximately 1/4 mile in... there are places before... and many farther in.

... another approximately two miles farther south on HWY 89 is a second dispersed NW Arizona Campsites access, again on the East Side of the Highway... forest rd #4

How We found this Camp: I was familiar with the area... and... we used a Kaibab National Forest Map...

Season/Month I Observed November 2010 and March 2011 Weather I experienced Varied. Storms passed through between brigh warm days. 50's in that earlywinter... several days over 70 in March.

Return from NW Arizona Campsites to Goin' RV Boondocking

RV Boondocking Campsites

If your confidence is lacking to find your own genuine, full, RV Boondocking campsite, Do this.

Stay in one of the developed campgrounds. You're still boondocking. From there, make daytrips checking on Campsites using This campsite search method.

When your confidence has grown sufficient, you can start going straight there rather than the short stay in a paid, developed camp.
