Dispersed camping in the Coronado National Forest as well as a scenic drive.

A historic mining district that extends along the bottom of a sycamore-shaded canyon is the focal point of this short, easy drive. You’ll start in the quaint little town of Patagonia, with its rich mining and ranching heritage, and drive up the meandering course of Harshaw Creek. The canyons carved by that small stream and its tributaries were the center of extensive mining activity from the end of the last century well into the present one. Even today, mining activity continues in some areas.

    We lived on Harshaw Road very near the junction with Duquesne Road for a year in one of the very few places that could be leased. It's beautiful there most of the year. We experienced our first honest to gosh real blizzard on New Years 2010/2011.
    One important point to remember is the area is heavily patrolled by various federal agencies and visitors are sometimes repeatedly stopped and questioned. Be prepared to obey authority and comply. The law enforcement guys and women can be a bit jumpy.Signs warning of smuggling and illegal immigration adorn the roadside at several intervals.

      I was thinking of spending a little time in the Harshaw rd area near Patagonia, Az tenting it. Is any reservation needed, how far from town and how rough is the road. I will be on a bicycle so it would help to know which bike would be more suitable.

      Thanks for the info on cheap camping,

Our community provides the best free camping information available. Free campgrounds can be hard to find. makes it easy. We give you a simple, map based search engine to find free and cheap camping areas. Community reviews and ratings provide you with up to date information and help you select the best camp site for your next camping trip.

This is a platform for sharing campgrounds and camp sites you have discovered. We are community driven, and while we will be adding many free camping spots, we hope that you will add some of your favorite camping places as well. By sharing camping information freely, we can all spend less time researching campgrounds, spend less money, and more time camping. If everyone contributes a few campsites, we'll all have more places to go camping.

Please come back and let us know what you find! User reviews help other campers decide on their next camping destination. The more information you have, the more informed your decisions.

Whether you enjoy tent camping, car camping or RV camping, our goal is to help you find the best places to go camping. We believe that free camping areas are often the most beautiful and peaceful camp sites. Our focus is on public lands. You own these lands and you are entitled to use them. We especially like camping on Forest Service land, BLM (Bureau of Land Management) areas, WMA's (Wildlife Management Areas) and county or city parks. We hope you enjoy the same style of camping.

We are not actively seeking Wal-Marts, truckstops or other parking lots and will not be adding very many of these. There are enough Wal-Mart and truck stop directories out there already. However, if a member of the community finds one of these locations to be useful for overnight RV parking and creates an entry, we may approve the listing.
