Something not right?

Description

The road had been graded and this was the only place we could cross over the gravel berm. It is a nice place with dozens of BLM disbursed camping spots, all level, and a few with fire rings. There are some shrubs. Far enough away from I8 and train tracks to not hear them at night. We had the place to ourselves. 1 or 2 bars of Verizon.

Stayed here for one night after leaving Yuma. Pick up supplies before going to site cuz there's nothing nearby. Was able to drive in off in my low clearance van. Do so with caution.

pros: Easy to get to from the freeway. Quiet, not crowded. Cons: Far away from city/amenities.

The other user who advised to not turn at the dip is referring to the actual wash, the area eroded by water runoff. One look and it’s obvious that you should not drive into that. The access is at (32.7376036, -113.7384094) It is the left turn immediately after the wash. The wash is the lowest point of the road, and before and after it are permanent yellow signs that advise not to cross when flooded. The access is between the signs, closer to the north sign. Right now there are two temporary traffic barricades between the signs positioned on the left edge of the road. The barricades are the Type 1/Type 2 that hinge at the top and have a flashing light (the lights are currently off). The access turn is where the second barricade is placed.

our camp spot was on 32.73677, -113.74021, off the road on the left side just past the little road wash/dip. We had a great afternoon and evening. Almost no highway noise, no other campers and beautiful views. Highway rest stop one mile away.

As described by others, good gravel road and level spots. Berm isn’t a problem just find where it’s been driven over. Accessed easily on 500 lb motorcycle

Nice spot for the night. There were only three of us for the night. Well spread out. Peaceful with a low rumble of Highway and train noise. Not disturbing.

Awesome spot! Very quiet and lots of dispersed camping. When the road has been graded there’s a berm but just have to find the entry spot - it’s only small anyways. Highly recommend.

TIP - If you're here on a hot afternoon, drive up the track towards the hill as far as you can. There's no shade from trees, but you will get sunset shade half an hour before the lower sites, as the sun dips behind the mountain.

Very peaceful dry camping. Far enough from the interstate that you can’t hear it. Google maps tried to take me a strange way through farmland, but it really is less than 10 minutes off of I-8

Good overnight stop. Want to be on your own, but highway nearby? This is the spot. Even have little TelCel (Mexico) here.

This was a great little camp spot right off the highway. It was pretty spacious. We camped at the base of one of the hills for the night enjoyed the scenery and the stars. It is perfect for an overnight. We had no trouble finding a place for our sprinter van.

There are dozens of free, level, BLM sites here, well dispersed. Some have campfire rings. A gravel berm had been crossed enough times for us to cross with our 18' easily. 1 or 2 Verizon bars. We can't hear the freeway from here. Avenue 52½ E is washboard for ½ mile, not terrible. Camping is free.
