City of Rocks State Park

Arrived after dark but checked with the campground host who advised sites 40-46 are first come- first serve. All other sites are reservation only through Reserve America however you can't make a same day reservation through them, so we had to go first come- first serve. The sites 40-46 are all dry camping but there are picnic tables, BBQ and fire pits at each site. These sites are nestled among huge spectacular boulders. Each site is private and the night sky is amazing without any light pollution. These sites are $10 per night that you deposit at the pay station near the visitor center. There are several vault bathrooms spread out amongst the campsites but there is also flush toilets and free showers at the front of the park near the visitor center. Lots of nice walking/hiking trails to explore too. Definitely will return soon.

Mittry Lake-Free Camp (secondary boat ramp)

We actually camped at the Mittry Lake-Free Camping just across from the Secondary Boat Ramp. Coming in from the south, the campground is on the right side of the road, 1 1/4 miles down the dirt road from where the pavement ends. The camping spots are dirt, separated by boulders outlining each spot. Pit toilets are a little walk away up on the hill across from the boat ramp and dock. Two large dumpsters for trash at the entrance to the campground. Beautiful night sky. Lake on two sides of campground. Nice dock at dirt boat launch area. Nice covered picnic area with lots of picnic tables and shade. It looks like a good place to fish too judging by all the fishermen. 4G Verizon cell service but data is spotty.

Squaw lake campground

We sought this place out because it has showers. Developed campground, $15 a night. Parking lot campground with flush toilets and clean with token operated hot showers. $1 per token. Each token operates the shower for 5 minutes per the sign but it really runs for approximately 7 to 10+ minutes. I like HOT showers and this was nice and hot. Nice views of sunrise, sunset and night sky. Camping on the lake with beautiful views. (If you'd rather disburse camp, there is plenty of other BLM disbursed camping and campgrounds nearby and you could still drive in and use the showers here. We met several friendly people from all over the world.

Pancho Villa State Park

We stumbled upon this great campground, Pancho Villa State Park in New Mexico. All sites are well maintained and appear to be raked and groomed daily. The bathrooms and showers are spectacularly clean and nice. Campers are spread out nicely. Each spot has a cabana, picnic table and BBQ. This is definitely on the top of our "must return" desert campgrounds. So much history here, Pancho Villa's Raid into Columbus, New Mexico. Great museum too.

Comanche Trail Campground

As described, the campground was easy to find. Pulled in just after dark. Only 2 other campers using the campground so we were spread out and spaced out nicely. Grounds were clean with picnic tables and trash cans dispersed through several spots. Paved pads, some more uneven than others but nothing terrible. Some road noise but better than expected. Good Verizon cell service and data. No bathrooms, water or electricity but quiet and fairly private. Definitely a place we will return.

Crystal Point, Beaver's Bend State Park, Oklahoma.

Dispersed campsite with fire ring, beside the lake. Gravel access road has a couple of rough spots but is doable in a 2 wheel drive car. There are several campsites with fire rings along the access road. Fishing and swimming right from the campsite. Good Verizon signal. $10/ night via Oklahoma State Parks website. Showers available a couple of miles away at State Park RV established campgrounds.

Douglas County Fishing Lake

Definitely a diamond of a find. Only a few minutes from town but remote enough to feel secluded. There are at least four turnoff from the road, all easily accessible. Pit toilets in all four locations and trash facilities in at l east two. This is a terrific spot on a lake that is spread out enough that you don't feel crowded. This location has a boat launch, so trailers of all sizes are no problem.

Darby Wells Road

Drove 1.5 miles from the main road and stayed in a large loop on the left. There are several nice spots to camp along this easy dirt road. The serenity among the cactus is amazing. The night sky without any light pollution is absolutely spectacular. It couldn't be any more beautiful. Somebody from down the road told us while he was looking for his lost dog this morning, he saw wood burro hanging out next to our rig but we didn't see them. 🙁 Overall.... great place to camp and highly recommend. Verizon cell service good the entire time.

Bosque Redondo Park

Drove through campground and saw only one sign on one cabana "Day Use Only, No Overnight Camping".

Garland Prairie RD

Good place to spend the night. You could drive in here with anything. Free ranging cows for company. Lots of spots to pull off. Lots of campers but still private and well spaced apart.

Chevron Gas Station and Burger King

Burger King, Navajo Nation Trading Post, and Maverick's Deli all-in-one.

Clean bathrooms open from 6AM to 10PM. We boondocked in the back parking lot with authorization from management. We were instructed to camp anywhere behind the building. We parked opposite the truckers which were full (and noisy). It seemed safe and a good place to boondock. There were two other cars near us with people sleeping inside them.

Crookton - Side Road at Route 66

Crookton Wild Camp spot. Nice, flat, quiet side road loop to boondock off route 66. Nice greenery to obscure you from the road. Somebody has even made a fire ring of rock to have a fire. There is room for a few rigs and/or large RV and trailer. No amenities.
