This is off of the 79 highway south of Florence, AZ - 6.6 miles back just off of 96 Ranch Road.

Nice pictures! Curious as to how you know where you can pull off the road and set-up? Are there marked areas? Thanks

I don't have any hard data or anything, but for that specific area there are only signs that say use the road at your own risk as it is not maintained. I had a buddy recommend that area because he hunts over there. There were a few others camping on that road and the roads around there, but none were close to me. I saw a sheriff driving up the road as I was driving down - he just waved as I passed by with my trailer. Up the hill, there is a ranch (96 Ranch).

Looks beautiful. One of our favorite spots is Buenas Aires National Wildlife Area on the border south of Arivipa.

The large state atlases/gazeteers show what is private land and what is federal and state. You can stay on most BLM land as a careful camper.

It is best to check out the back roads before you haul a rig in. We usually have a base area and then scout out the back roads in our 4x4 pickup. Want to make sure that you can get in, turn around and get out. Have just pulled the mountain bike off and pedaled in on numerous occasions. Pedaled in the 3 miles in and out to our favorite spot ever, Laguna Azul in the Yucatan. Found a 10' pole by the side of the road so I could make sure we would fit under the branches.

Beautiful spot. I wish Arizona would fix their screwed up ATV laws.

The street legal requirements. DW and I wanted to go ride in the area around Florence and Superstition Mountains last fall. If you need to ride on a dirt road that is maintained to get from one trail to the next you have to be street legal, including license plate. Since TX doesn't issue plates for ATVs we can't ride over there.

New Mexico has a much better idea. ATVs are considered off road vehicles and are allowed on any unpaved road unless there is a local ordinance that prohibits it. Can also ride short distances along the shoulder of paved roads to get from trail to trail. All I have to have there is my TX off road sticker.
