There is a haunting quiet to the Arizona desert, almost as if it is holding its breath, waiting for you to listen. You can hear it in the wind that traverses the almost barren landscape; if this is what you're looking for on your RV camping vacation, then look no further than Burro Creek Campground, near Wikieup. This rustic and simple RV park has restrooms with flush toilets and sinks, dump stations, and potable water. All of the individual sites have a level pad, picnic table, trash can, and a fire grill, and can be rented by the day for a limited length of time (in order to provide camping opportunities for as many people as possible; you can ask what the limits are when you book your site).
The area is a popular destination for hiking and backpacking, with its numerous varieties of native cactus and rock garden appearance. It's also a popular stop for motorists on nearby Highway 93 who are attracted by Burro Creek's tree-lined embankments and deep blue waters which contrast against the Sonoran Desert Canyon in the background. You can swim in the river and also picnic while you're here. Don't forget to take your RV rental for a spin on the local highways; there is something majestic about riding high above the surrounding traffic, in comfort, an experience that everyone should have at least once.
Search for an RV in Mohave County, and you will be one step closer to the vacation of your dreams. You can begin that dream by heading to Havasu National Wildlife Refuge, a birding hotspot that was created to provide habitat for endangered bird species and to reintroduce species that had left the area as cities and populations expanded. The area consists of lakes, marshes, and sloughs, fields where wheat, rye, and millet are grown, and desert upland with stands of cottonwood and willow trees. While you're here, you can go boating on the Colorado River and enjoy fishing too; there is a boat launch near Topock Gorge. Canoeing and kayaking are possible, and the area is a photographer's dream with the diverse landscape and wildlife species that are present.
Prescott National Forest is an undisturbed natural preserve that has remained unchanged as far back as the days of the gold rush. The area is part Sonoran Desert and part grassland, with the Verde River cutting through. You can canoe or kayak on the river, which is open to all forms of non-motorized boating, or swim or go tubing. There is an abandoned railroad, the Verde Canyon Railroad, that follows the river and provides you with an opportunity to hike the tracks and observe the red rock canyons that border two national forests. The forest is home to the Walnut Creek Center which conducts research on the area and provides educational opportunities.
Dead Mountains Wilderness Area is centered around the rust-colored Dead Mountains and is populated mostly by creosote bush desert scrub and desert wash scrub. If you enjoy viewing wildlife, you'll have a chance to spot bighorn sheep, coyotes, roadrunners, golden eagles, and many more bird and mammal species. Don't forget to bring your camera as the combination of scenery and wildlife provides some unique photographic opportunities. Hiking is allowed, but bicycles and other modes of transportation aren't; if you want, you can bring your rental RV and leave it nearby, outside the park, to enjoy warm food and drinks in comfort once you're done.
When you've had your fill of the outdoor life, turn your RV rental and head for Kingman where you'll find a selection of antique stores you can browse for that special gift you hadn't thought of until you see it in the store. There are several wineries you can visit, a distillery that imported its equipment from Germany (the owners will gladly show it to you), and a brewery that produces small-scale craft beer plus authentic ginger ale. The town has an urban park with an antique steam engine and caboose at one end and a memorial to Vietnam veterans at the other. There are several museums on hand, including one dedicated to Route 66 (which passes through Kingman) and an outdoor shrine with a quirky selection of articles such as antique cars you can sign, a fertility bell you can ring, and a giant painted head. Feeling hungry? The shrine has a food stand where you can grab something hot and quick.
Salome is a small community where you can shop for antiques or just relax and enjoy the quiet ambiance. It has a reasonable restaurant industry for its size, and you can choose between Mexican food, a diner, pub fare, and more. Pub food is usually a good choice and the venue offering this has friendly service and outdoor seating for starters, plus takeout service and a nicely varied menu. The food is not fancy, but it's well prepared and comes in large portions; if you make it here, try the prime rib.
The Arizona desert is where you will find quiet, reflective outdoor experiences, stunning landscapes, and culture you won't find anywhere else; let Burro Creek Campground be your introduction to it.
