ShowLow AZ Boondocking Locations

We've settled on the ShowLow area to get away for a while after the holiday traffic leaves. Never been there and would like some good suggestions for boondocking. We'll be pulling a 26' 5er. Any help would be appreciated.

I haven't had a chance to try them yet but scouted these out via the Internet prior to trip thru there this spring:

Scott Reservoir
Los Burros Campground

Check out freecampsites.net - several possibilities are listed there.

We did both places in showlow, very poor in town on main streets. If you push past showlow about 50mi great lake was our pref. Great choices, variable amenities and prices. Very secluded and excellent nature. Showlow just doesnt offer much but mosquitos and people on top of you. We visited the folks who live in showlow and the best place nearest is great lake, past a casino after showlow if your into that. A couple weeks at great lake will take a toll as the elevation is 9200-9800 a bit tough for sea level folks but worth the hour drive past showlow. Even better is south of wilcox at bonita canyon, beautiful geology wildlife and seclusion. Was free last year to camp there. But thats a ways south of showlow in the chirriquawa natl. Well worth the drive if great rest and much outdoor stuff to do is of interest. Bonita canyon offers up cochise head mon. Organ pipe rock formations and troops of black bears. Was the best spot we stayed in all of AZ. Good luck on showlow.
