Access to the Burro Creek Campground is provided via a 1.25 mile paved road from U.S. Highway 93 at mile post 140.2. The campground offers visitors 23 individual campsites, 1 group site, and 2 day-use sites featuring shaded picnic tables, fire rings with grates, and grills at the group site and day-use area. Flush toilet facilities are provided at 2 different locations in the campground as well as 1 dump station. Although water hookups are not available at campsites, drinking water is provided a various locations throughout the campground. 

In planning your trip, please note that sites 1, 2, and 10 through 17 are best for larger RVs (Class A) and trailers (fifth wheels) due to maneuverability throughout the site. Other sites can be utilized for larger RVs and trailers, but it is recommended for visitor convenience that the aforementioned sites are used first. 

Natural Features

The campground scenery features an adjacent canyon carved by the flow of Burro Creek with other mountains and mesas visible in the background as well as a diverse Sonoran desert plant community including saguaros, a variety of cholla and barrel cacti, creosote bushes, Palo Verde trees, and catclaw.

Javelina, raccoons, coyotes, and foxes have been known to use the area as the creek serves an important role in the harsh desert environment.     

Nearby Attractions

The public lands surrounding the Burro Creek Campground are readily available for visitors interested in sightseeing via use of a four-wheel drive vehicle along county-maintained dirt roads. These roads wind through a variety of interesting geologic scenery combined with unique vegetative communities including Sonoran and Mojave deserts intermingled with areas of interior chaparral and pinyon-juniper woodlands. County roads are maintained regularly, but it is always a good idea to check with the local BLM office prior to planning your trip as well as exercising caution when travelling on any of these unimproved dirt roads as visitors travel at their own risk.
