Boondocking Group Trips

My wife and I will be spending our first winter in Arizona and will be looking for good boon-docking opportunities...not just pulling off the road. We have participated in long weekend trips to various RV Parks with FMCA and Elks clubs. We are wondering if there are clubs out there that do organized trips to quality boon-docking sites?

I think that most folks go boondocking in order to get away from organized groups, so this might be something that will be very difficult to find. If this kind of things does exist, you'll hear about it on this forum though.

Elaine and I are in agreement with 1bigmess. We have gone a number of remote places with two very good friends. We saw the rancher twice in two weeks at one BLM spot near the Gila River in New Mexico. I think you may just have to ask folks when you are out in Arizona. So, 1bigmess and we have been of zero help.

For winter the popular sites are Quartzsite where you'll have LOTS of neighbors but you need to try it once. Also all along that area along the Colorado River down to Yuma. The Ajo area is very pretty. Not much boondocking in the Tucson/Phoenix corridor but some national forest land around Roosevelt Lake.

Not so much organized trips but the Escapees, for example, have sub groups that meet every year at different locations in Quartzsite. When we had our Monaco coach we would meet groups of friends from this forum (IRV2) in a large circle @ Quartzsite and had a wonderful time. At one time I think we had 51 coaches in that circle. Check the owners corner forums or the Escapees boards. Have fun.

The boondocking group(s) in Escapees can be fun. We met with them at Shanty Pond in Florida and somewhere west of Quartzite. We had a great time at both outings. As Duoglide noted, there can be a lot of quite friendly folks. We agree this might be a great start since you can learn a lot of information on boondocking and places to boondock. However, as with fishermen, favorite secluded spots may not be disclosed.
