My three acres of land is off grid and southwest of Tucson, AZ. I have been living there full time since the end of October 2021 in my own travel trailer. There is potable water available via gravity flow. There will be a compost dump area if you utilize a composting toilet in your rig, and I now have a dump station. I have decent internet service via Verizon. There are no neighbors within sight. There is occasional road noise, but not much at all in late night. Please keep your pets leashed or contained due to cactus, coyotes, bobcats, free range cattle, etc. You are welcome to walk the land and along the main road as desired. Please text or call if you are going to be later than expected. and when you get close. Suggested Local Attractions:There are a few small restaurants in the Three Points area, as well as an ACE Hardware, a feed store and two gas stations. The city of Tucson is approximately 25 miles away, so an easy jaunt to eating, entertainment, hiking, casinos. 2-3 hours to Organ Pipe National Park, 4 to Puerto Penasco, Mexico. 2 hours to Phoenix. Other day trips to Tombstone, Bisbee, Patagonia Lake, Kitts Peak Observatory.

House Rules

Dogs must be leashed when outside. It is a good area for walking dogs, but please pick up after them! If you smoke, please pick up your butts! Generators off at 10 pm, may turn back on at 6 am. The desert cools nicely at night, so nighttime heat should not be an issue. It is strongly suggested to not leave awnings in the out position if you are not on site. The wind tends to pick up quickly and unexpectedly at times and can be very strong.

Location

Access Road Conditions: My driveway is dirt/sand and there is a bit of a rise at the beginning of it. The land is otherwise fairly flat. There is sufficient room to park your tow vehicle either next to your trailer or nearby in the driveway. There are no tall trees to get in the way, just a few small mesquites. Tow Vehicle Parking Details: Need to be reasonably good at backing up your trailer. I have cleared a wide enough path, but cacti are everywhere, if you want to park off of the graded area. If you want to keep it simple and stay of the driveway (dirt), that is fine as well.

Thoroughly enjoy camping and have been living off grid for a year. I am now having a house built on the property, so camping is not my first priority right now. Details: Hello! I am a retired nurse practitioner who moved to NC almost 20 years ago. I have been working mostly in primary care as an NP but also owned and ran an alpaca farm for 14 years in NC. Life took a turn, and I moved to Arizona in the fall of 2020 to help a family member and to have a new adventure. I am currently working full time as an RN Home Town: Outside of Tucson, AZ. I have developed an off grid property, living in a new 30ft Minnie Winnie and a converted shed structure. Favorite Boondocking Locations: My own property!

    Thank you so much Kate for having us. You are so welcoming, nice, kind. We love the beautiful sunrise and sunset from your land. We would love to return to see what the house looks like after it is finished being built.

    we spent two nights at Ocotillo Views. It is a nice spot about 20 minutes from Saguaro National Park. The host was very welcoming and pleasant and her dog was very friendly. cksbrown communicated well and gave very detailed instructions on how to get there but Google Maps will take you directly there. You can hear plenty of birds in the morning (Cactus Wrens).

    This was our first stay being hosted on Boondockers Welcome. Our host and cadre of animal pets were very friendly and made us feel most welcome. We couldn’t have been happier with our first stay. The accommodations were just as described and we had ample level parking for our 22’ Sprinter. The site is in open desert with spectacular views and wildlife within earshot. The host marked out our area with solar lights to demarcate the edge of the prickly desert. A few notes: - Though Ocotillo Views is within the Tucson city limit it is a good 30+ minutes drive from the city proper. The route from the city will pass several boondocking sites, but they appeared crowded and were right off the highway. - Although the site is down a long rural road there is a market and gas station (that has diesel) nearby. - The area has many dirt roads (built for an imagined, but as yet unsuccessful development). This makes for great desert hiking and easy access to the nearby state park that protects the nearby peaks.

    Cksbrown was a wonderful host. We were made to feel very much at home while visiting Edenton NC. We stayed 2 Pleasant nights. She was especially gracious when we had to make emergency repairs to our camper which required working underneath on the plumbing system.
