Picacho SRA, Picacho State Park & Picacho Camping
Right on the Colorado River, this is a very nice desert park & campground. Most camp sites are large, some fairly private, & most lined with large Tamarisk trees or plenty of natural vegetation. Other camps back up against red rock walls w/ sky views.
Old volcanic peaks surround this large park on the Colorado River – at the border of Arizona. Winter camping is great here. Hunters, fisherman & RVers alike, all know the best kept secret.. Picacho State Recreation Area on the Colorado River is prime spot for outdoor recreation & camping. Canoe, kayak, fish, hunt, mountain bike, hike & off road.
3 hour drive from San Diego on I-8 E. Take the 20 mile access road north from Winterhaven @ Yuma AZ . The desert road to Picacho Campground is paved only a few miles. Last 18 miles is a graded dirt road that is passable for cars & motorhomes. In the summer months thunderstorms can cause flash flooding in the washes, making sections of the road impassable. Check rain forecast before traveling.
