BLM, Ya Outdid Yourself!
Great little BLM CG. As previously described. There's a sweet little picnic area just a mile down the road, just before you cross the bridge. A half dozen picnic tables under a grove of shade trees, along the river. Take the drive all the way down the Black Hills Back Country Bywy, all the way back to AZ 191 for some stunning scenery. Stop (when you can) and explore/read the Interpretive signs. The road can be sporty ... narrow, steep drop-offs, a little bumpy, hairpin turns ... but worth the effort. Sign says it's 21 miles and to plan for 2 hours. We took 3. Lots to see and do nearby. Visit the towns of Cliffton and Morenci and learn about the mining operation that's been here over 100 years. Very cool indeed. No electric, water or sewer. 1 pit toilet and a couple of trash cans. Very clean CG. Please help keep it that way. $5, $2.50 w/ senior parks pass. Great solar to keep your batteries charged. Very good AT&T LTE coverage.

This is an awesome little campground. It seems so be brand new and squeaky clean! It is dry camping, no water or electricity. It's 4 miles off of Hwy 191 on a smooth well graded gravel road. We are the only ones here. There are 5 back-in sites and 2 pull-throughs. There is an outhouse, garbage service, concrete picnic tables with canapes, 50 - 100 yards between sites, and awesome views of the Gila River canyon. Verizon service with 3 bars of 4G. All for $5/ nite.

Great place to stay. Walking distance to the Gila River. Bathrooms close. No electricity but nice covered spots with grill and fire pit.
