Agua Fria National Monument at Bloody Basin Road. North of Black Canyon City, Arizona

(Gilbert, AZ)

Bloody Basin Road travels through the heart of Agua Fria National Monument and provides accessibility to Pueblo La Plata, the remnants of a Native American community that existed from 1250 to 1450 A.D.


For this trip, we pulled the pop-up camper to a spot just off Bloody Basin Rd at the top of Perry Mesa. The spot was fairly quiet with 1-2 cars or ATVs an hour driving past.

The road up the hill, just past the vault toilets heading west, was a bit rockier than I expected. I would recommend finding a spot before the vault toilets with most RVs, as I did some minor damage to my pop-up.

Heading east from I-17 on Bloody Basin Rd, there were four or five good spots before you reach the vault toilets and the hill up the mesa.

My location was: 34.23286,-112.021228

Sounds like a great camping area. Sorry about the damage to your pop-up camper. I camped near Badger Springs Wash, but hadn't checked out Bloody Basin Road yet.
