I followed the instructions on freecampsites
I'm about 3 miles from the Interstate.  Great for October in AZ.  Wind is blowing , pleasant sitting in the shade.  It's about 3500 ft elevation.  I have a nice flat spot at the top of a hill... the road , which is unpaved, gets a surprising amount of traffic.  So, I'm a little bit from the main road, and not getting as much dust as someone parked right ON the road would get .   

ATT and Verizon internet is great, as is cell phone.  I can actually see I17 to the South East.  There are lots of hills , so that's my only view.  Although I'm not in the middle of nowhere (NOW), it feels like it.  

I like this spot a lot, and hopefully will stay here for the whole 14 days (since I don't want to RUIN IT FOR EVERYONE)  .   Big Grin Tongue

Of course, this is a boondocking spot; so no services.  Also, haven't seen a Class A or a 5th wheel, it's hunting season, so there are hunters out here.  And it is rifle season.  Haven't seen any hunters hunting, though 2 are camped about 50 yards away.  They left early this morning, and I didn't even hear them.  Very considerate folks.  I mention hunting only because that bothers some people. It does NOT bother me.  

This is a view toward the West from my hill.  

thanks for the review Pat. highdesertranger

Looks great. Prescott temp at 1:00pm 75 degrees, 15 mph wind.
When I hear " Prescott, Az. ". I think of this photo: 
Public Domain,
Pic was taken winter 1879-1880 in Prescott, Az. Doc sent that pic to his uncle. The uncle that gave him a diamond stick pin, before he headed West. 
My "Doc Holliday Bible", is this well researched book "Doc Holliday: The Life and Legend." by Gary L. Roberts.
Prescott public library, I would think, should be in there library. 
Enjoy the 14 days.
Well, blmkid, I might have to take a ramble on down toward Prescott.

My pleasure.   I have a mission now.

Crown King brings back memories. I was going to buy a cabin adjacent CK, however, land could not be purchased with it plus the long dusty/rough road, I passed. A great road for 2 wheel'n/quads into Crown King.
The weather map chose Cordes Lakes as the nearest weather station. 

The closest town with a post office is Mayer AZ, 86333.

About 10 miles on dirt road from here.
Sounds like you are King of your hill Pat.

Something about big fish and little ponds. ...better yet,  the ONLY fish.

I just left the Prescott Natl Forest. Was camped off Senator Hwy. Great weather. Only stayed for a week, but it was a great week.
