Railroad Canyon Campground, Gila Nat. Forest, A box canyon, one way in and one way out, no running water, concrete outhouse m/f, no cell phone service, possible rattlesnakes, be bear aware, possible mountain lions, javalinas. You must pack out your own rubbish, 14 day maximum stay, tall rock canyon walls echoe and a nearby stream will woo you to sleep at night, or have a afternoon siesta! Elevation about 8,000' ASL. Not really suitable for trailers-motorhomes over 20-25 feet in length due to steep incline entering camp.

Very cool pictures, everyone. I don't know how some of you managed to pull yourselves away from some of that scenery.

Yeah, have you ever gone campin', you and yours are the only ones there, you get set up, and pretty soon somebody comes and camps right next to you? I mean, the whole campground is wide open, and somebody picks the spot next to yours? arrrggghhhh.

We don't go to organized camp grounds we boondock and it happens out in the boonies too.
So what we did to combat this is we went to some garage sales and bought a couple of tents and some old folding chairs.
We set them up on the camp site on ether side.


I didn't go out to the boonies to have neighbors closer than I have at home, I went camping to get away from them.
