Southern Tier: Camping between Hope and Congress, AZ?
« on: January 10, 2019, 10:16:48 am »
Hey, Riders:

I'm looking to start a desert tour pretty soon (Bishop, CA, to Prescott, AZ) and I'm wondering about camping along Rt. 71 between Hope and Congress.  I'll be riding via Lake Havasu to Bouse, but the run all the way to Congress from Bouse will be too much for me, especially on a short winter day.  Is there still an RV park in Aquila?  I rode this section years ago and saw that there was an RV park, but pushed on and camped beside the road--not too bad but might prefer something more established.  Other ideas? I would prefer to get farther than Salome. Thanks!

There are several east of Hope. The one farthest east from Bouse is about 38 miles out, a bit east of Wenden.

Go to Google Maps and search form "Campgrounds near Aguila, AZ".
