-Free campsite in Safford
While on our full time RV adventure, we had the pleasure of watching a movie from 1985 called “Lost in America”. The story is about a married couple in their 30’s, who decide to quit their jobs, buy a Winnebago, and cruise around America as free spirits (sound familiar?).
As a result of some comical events, they find themselves in the small town of Safford, Arizona looking for jobs. When we found out that we were going to be near Safford, we decided to stop. When we found this awesome free campsite, we know it was worth staying for a few days!

This free campsite is only 10 miles East of Safford, AZ.
It was very easy to get to. You turn South off of US-191 onto Hackle road, and it is down the road about 2 miles.
almost every time we go camping!
The road in is very smooth and level, making it an easy entrance/exit for any size rig.
We liked this free campsite because it was close to town, yet there were very few people camping there.
An added bonus for this spot is that you have an front row view of the beautiful Mount Graham, which happened to be covered in snow when we were there.
We stayed here for 5 nights in early February. The weather was nice, being mostly sunny and 55-70 degrees every day. We enjoyed a lot of peace and quiet during our stay.
Our AT&T cell service was great here.
If you are ever in the Safford, AZ area and looking for a free campsite, we highly recommend this one!
