My property borders the San Pedro River National Riparian Area and as such has a plethora of birds that come from Mexico and are only seen in this area. I am also lose to the historic towns of Tombstone and Bisbee.

We had a great time camping on Karen’s beautiful property. She greeted us warmly and made sure we were happy and comfortable before leaving us to our lovely evening. The area is gorgeous, a stone’s throw from the Mexican border and world-class birdwatching, which is what lead us there to begin with. Prepare for some spiky conditions in the mesquite forest, but you won’t be sorry.

My friends and I were very happy with our campsite! We had plenty of space for our three cars and two tents. Karen provided a fire pit and kindling for us. My friends also enjoyed exploring the forest that was accessible from this property.

The roads leading to this land were primitive, but I was able to get there fine in my Prius (driving slowly when it got really bumpy).

We spent 2 days at Mesquite Forest. Karen was very friendly and helpful. Her place is isolated so if you want quiet, this is the place. It has no amenities (bathroom, shower, power, etc) so you have to be self-contained. We have a campervan so it worked fine. I’d like to come over again when it’s gotten some rain. Southern AZ is in a drought so the riparian area is very dry.
