We were there in Feb. 2014, no fee, easy access to Tucson, quiet enough.

I live about 5 minutes from this campsite. From what I have been told you can camp here now, I see campers occasionally, but I am told by locals that they now charge a fee.

This campground is closed until April 1, 2011, unless we get off our asses and appeal this bogus decision. This camping area is being closed because of a pipeline that needs to be dug up on the western and southern edges of the property. Its been fenced off and does not effect entry/exit to the camp and is completely unnecessary. I wish to know if all requirements have been met. Approval by the State Director, submission to Washington, categorical exclusions (CE), environmental assessments (EA), as well as an environmental impact statement. Please let me see the NEPA analysis and all documents relating to this closure as required by the Freedom of Information Act. These quotes relate to closures as outlined by 43 CFR 8364.1: "A closure or restriction order should be considered only after other management strategies and alternatives have been explored including, but not limited to, increased law enforcement, cooperative efforts with local governments and organizations, engineering (e.g., fencing, barriers, or trail improvements), education, and outreach." "...it is important that closure and restriction orders are established only after other management strategies and alternatives have been explored, and it is determined that a closure or restriction order is necessary."

The BLM used to let RVers camp as long as they wanted... but last year (winter of 09 & 2010) it turned into a trash dump and BLM had to contract the trash to be removed. So the pigs and hillbillies screwed it up for everyone. I have been out there for a few weeks and have picked up used toilet paper, feces, etc, to make my camp a healthy place. Also, many hillbillies use the fire pits to burn plastic trash, polluting the air and requiring the next camper to clean the pit out. Haul your trash so we don't have to.

This is one of the only areas to camp FREE near Tucson. We tried other places and were often run out by social control agents. Though I love Tucson, I have yet to find anywhere else that I enjoy camping at besides the Saguaro National Park (national monument when I lived there and has since been upgraded). There are some campgrounds on the Mt Lemmon highway heading up into the Santa Catalinas. These spots are really nice. Tucson mountain park is worth visiting as well. The park is just prior to the national park. Also, be sure to camp in the Santa Ritas near the trail to Mt. Wrightson. Nice campgrounds there. I know the area very well (as well as the rest of Arizona), so if you need some other point outs, feel free to email. BorderPhd@aol.com

Great little spot. Some noise pollution from light traffic and a nearby small airport but we only heard one plane around 7p. Neighbors all quiet and a great little hike and view from the hill. We had no problem finding it following the directions below. We exited the I-10 south on I-19 and took the first exit on Hwy 86 heading west. Our GPS is giving the following coordinates: N32 09.517 W 111 06.984. Nearest address is 6763 W Old Ojo Hwy and nearest intersection is Hwy 86E and S Kinney Road.
