Goldfish bowl, camp is named after the historic spring that was the clever idea of Shaffer, a resting place and Watering Hole for weary Travelers & wildlife located on Route 66 in the early 1900s. Locals keep the spring stocked with goldfish and frogs to keep the water eco friendly and clear... historically the spring was used for travelers to fill the radiators with water while crossing through the black mountains... you can now travel the same route 66/Oatman Highway climb the 30 or so natural rock curved stairs up to the spring. Once at the spring turn around the view is pretty amazing. Continue on Route 66 to Oatman where the donkeys Run free and treats for the donkey's are sold by the shop owners. Originally they were brought in by the minors to haul supplies during the gold rush era, later they were released where they have settled in to the town Oatman Arizona and surrounding area where they wander the streets along with tourist. Camp is located 11 miles from gold fish bowl spring.

What a cool spot! I recommend not trying to drive there in the dark because the roads are a little hard to navigate and see the signs in the dark. When I left in the morning everything was way easier. Need a car/suv that can handle some rocky roads. It was a beautiful spot tho and well kept. Needed a site to stay between Joshua tree and Grand Canyon and it was perfect.
