Were coming to see Okkevil River in June and jr. wants to camp. Are there any low cost/free campgrounds, or public lands where we could camp that are not too far from Tucson ? I don't want to drive in the dark for 2 hours after a show trying to find a campsite tho. Any suggestions ?
I've been residing in the state of Arizona for 20 years. I know. I'm a poor SOB.
If you find yourself on the west side, there's a great desert campground (owned by Pima County) called Gilbert Ray. Gilbert Ray has 130 camping sites which are first come, first serve. Think we doled out $15.00 the last time we stayed the night.
Catalina State Park is also a great one, if you're coming from that direction. Don't forget to check out the "Romero Pools" and "Romero Pass."
By the way, I could be wrong, but I thought the "Okkevil River" was a rock 'n roll band out of Austin, Texas ?? ?
