We loved camping at Bob and Cindy’s Wild Burro Retreat. The hosts were very accommodating when we arrived and helped get the trailer in place then left us to our self’s for the remaining 4 days. There is so much to do in the area and having the preserve right across the street for hiking and bike riding was great. We look forward to a return trip when back in the area. A private little piece of beautiful desert.
Thank you

First of all Bob and Cindy have an awsome piece of property with the most amazing desert views. The sunsets are so beautiful it's hard to believe they are real. You will likely hear the coyotes barking and yipping at night and may get lucky to see some strolling down the road during the day. The location is perfect, close enough to town to have the essentials and dove mountain is beautiful. Bob and Cindy make everything easy from the moment you get to camp. They went above and beyond to help us feel at home while staying on their property. 10/10 would highly recommend!

This was a very nice place to stay, not too far off the highway yet still totally private. Having water and power available while being so quiet was a really nice option, we had an amazing sunset. The hosts were very communicative and we wished we could have stayed longer.

Private desert retreat 🏜 ❤

Wonderful private feel! Easy access up the private drive at the base of Tortolita Preserve Trail Head. The preserve is just across the street from the camp area. Which allows for great views, amazing sunsets and rises, as well as lots of animal sightings and sounds. Every night we heard owls, bats, coyotes and more! Overall it really feels like you're way out camping alone but with all the luxuries of electricity, water and cell coverage. Backing the Dove Mountain suburb there's plenty of shops and restaurants!
If you book, make sure to drive W Moore Rd to N Wild Burro Rd. Very easy back in with huge wide driveway. The private dirt road is quiet and perfect for walking the dogs, feels like your very own private hiking trail.

Private oasis in the desert! The site was everything we could have hoped for; quiet, beautiful, across the street from some fun single track. Bob and Cindy were welcoming hosts and we definitely plan to go back.

Recommended. Real desert experience yet with power, water and snacks provided by hosts. Lovely sunset and sunrise and very little city noise. Clever metal sculptures along the little trail next to campsite. Just a very positive experience!
