Just a little farther, you'll find lakes and rivers for fishing and boating. Camp among various types of homes including campers, motor homes, manufactured homes and sticks and bricks. Close to conveniences some walking distance, most you'll want a vehicle to get to, or there is always Uber! It really is the best of both worlds. If you are set up to boondock and like to be near the action and not far from a peaceful desert nature oasis, you've found a low stress place to visit and be merry. End your days roasting marshmallows under the stars. It is encouraged that you bring your instruments!

The vibe at Boondock with Islanders
If you stayed here and have some insider info for us, let us know!
Thanks to these nice hosts for a good place to stay while I was in Phoenix. If you are looking for a place with views and hiking trails it may not be the best location and there are some barking dogs from time to time. I set up with a small travel trailer in their back yard and felt secure behind the gate. They have a firepit and are friendly helpful hosts with a friendly dog. We ran electric from their house to my trailer. I would stay here again.
This is just a little spot that these people have set up in their back yard so don't expect it to be some kind of wilderness retreat. But I have to say, these people were extremely nice and trustworthy. We booked it pretty last minute and we were just camping out of our cars with a tent but they were very accommodating and made sure that we had access to water and power. Like I said, just nice people. If I were looking for a place to tent camp or park an RV on the way somewhere, I would not hesitate to come here again.
