Rich Hill Camping

Recommended Posts

We are hoping to take our trailer over to the Rich Hill area, and wondered if anyone knew of any good camping areas there. We will be dry camping, so I guess the BLM would be best?

Any tips will be greatly appreciated.

Hi Patrick. Many people camp on BLM land by Decision Corner. Stop and join the Weaver Mining District before you head out there, get their maps and you are good to go. Tell Maryanne Slim sent ya!

Yep, I used to subscribe to the idea of going over that washboard road fast...Until it thrashed my rear axle and then three sets of brake lines! ... Actually, that road is the reason I don't beep Rich Hill area much anymore unless I come in from the south off Scenic Route road... Cheers, Unc

Patrick,

I camp at decision corner all the time with my rig. Just watch out for tire hazards and you will be fine. I take it real easy on Stanton Rd, it takes me about 30 min but it is a real nice drive. When are you going?

Hey Unc,

Where do you catch the scenic route coming in from the south?

Hi Bunk...You go a mile or so towards Wickenburg from the junction of 93 & 89 .... The road is called Scenic Loop Road...Take it straight north then, just before Box Canyon you turn left (north)...It's about 5 or 6 miles and you meet up with Angel's Ranch Road south of Decision Corner near the Lucky Linda claim....You do have to cross a couple of big sandy washes..I don't think you'd want to take a motorhome or 5th wheel until you check it out...Cheers, Unc

Thanks everyone for your help

Bunk, if we don't go to Laughlin for Turkey day, I would like to go to Rich Hill.

We won't be able to make a decision till Monday or so.

I want to donate a bunch of 50 cal. bullets from Havasu to your claim to keep you on your toes..... :hahaha:

Will anyone else be in the area?

Sorry about your Luck Unc but I've been up and down that road many times in the last 15 years and never had a mishap because of the road-knock on wood :brows: Mike C...:ph34r2:

I don't see how one could mess up their junk that bad at a prudent speed :inocent:

Now, if one was hitting it trohpy Truck or Pre-Runner style in a stock vehicle, I could see the possibility of some damage. :D

Hey Jimbeax ... When I was in Congress (at the SV Motel) the last week of September/1st week in October I tried to look you up to no avail. I thought maybe you had moved. Glad to hear you are still in the area. If you don't mind ... please PM me with your cell or home number so I can reach out to you in February if you will be around.

Have a great holiday season in the mean time. Mike F

Hey everyone. Plans are finally made.

We will be leaving Lake Havasu on Thursday morning. Arrive about noon or so?

We will camp at "Decision Corner".....Black Suburban, old Nomad trailer, brown and tan in color.

Anyone in the area, stop by and say hello !

Patrick, Wendy and Dog.
