Mingus Mtn CG

Well I boondocked 5 nights the 6th of Oct till the 11th of Oct at the top of Mingus Mtn CG.Not sure you can call this boondocking since they have 50 amp electric hook up but no water.But it is only $10 per night and only half of that for us old folks.
Photo 1 & 2 our campsite on the edge at the top of Mingus Mtn.
Photo 3 is looking down at Cottwood area in the Verde Valley.Sedona is by the red rocks in middle of photo,Mtns in top left of photo are the San Francisco peaks North of Flagstaff with mtn Humphreys peak 12633 ft the highest point in Arizona.The small hill at the right end of the mtns is Sunset Crater Volcano.
Photo 4 is some of the fall colors coming down the road off the top of Mingus Mtn.

Wink Hilltop CG

Well I spent the 11th to the 18th of Oct 2009 at thr Hilltop CG in the Lynx Lake recreation area in the Prescott Basin part of the National Forest just South of Prescott AZ.The prescott Basin is often called a wildland-urban interface area because the forested public lands are adjacent to the urbanized area of the greater Prescott community.Costco,Wal-Mart and Lowes are less than 4 miles from the campground.Wildland-urban interface areas typically experience greater visitor use,human impact and demand for recretional use.
Sadly the "Basin" is a good example of our governments ability to not get it quite right.Some is good like dispersed camping only in "designaded dispersed campsites.BUT of the 111 dispersed campsite most are very small(not for RVs)and the campsites and or roads are not fit to take a trailer on.There are 4 main campgrounds in "the basin"White Spar it is just another campground that is on a paved road with 60 sites at 5700 ft elevation.Lower Wolf Creek this is an older campground with small sites close together down 5 miles of dirt road,It has 20 sites and no water.6000 ft elevation.Then there is Yavapai campground in the boulder strewn Granite Mounttain Wildernes.The 25 sites here that are also small.5600 ft elevation.
Now back to Lynx Lake Recreation Area.It has 2 campground Lynx campground with 39 sites 5600 ft elevation and Hilltop campground with 38 sites. 5700 ft elevation.Both campgrounds are on paved roads and both have water.BUT none of the water taps have fittings that you can put a hose on to fill an RV.Thay are so well made that you can not even get a water thief type fitting on.The host have taps that you can put a hose on but will not let you get water because they DO NOT have anti siphon fittings on them.The campsites at Hilltop are better than the ones at Lynx.You will note in the photos that all the campsites at Lynx and Hilltop are made for tent camping with large area at table/fire pit area for a tent so RVs park on the road side areas.There are a few with back in sites.
The camping rates At Hilltop,Lynx.Yavapai and White Spar went up this year from $10/night to $18/ night BUT they are only worth $10/night.NO hook ups and they do not take reservations
Photos 1,2 and 3 our campsite #14.Photo 4 some AZ fall color.

Ajo is actually a very nice place...close to Organ Pipe SP, and if ya know someone in the town(we do, the ex-mayor of Silverton), it makes things a bit easier...free park, electric and water, and eventually a dump...great light shows at night when the AF is doing night bombings...stars are outstanding, otherwise...not a bad place to be, in the winter...m
