It's Alright

Nice spot close to town. Quite a few people out there, but far enough away that you don't really notice them. Kind of a lot of garbage, but if you can overlook that, it's a good spot.

Awesome geology but no internet

Best thing about Craggy Wash is the awesome geology. Internet is non-existent. Main road is soft sand. Long rigs may have an issue turning around. Was almost full when I visited so privacy and solitute were not there. But if you are lucky enough to visit when there is hardly anyone else there your experience will be far better than mine.

Popular spot. If you’re looking for quiet this is not your place but if you’re looking for texture in the landscape for hiking and exploring - this area is great. Close to town, really cool rock formations, cell service, however those are the reasons everyone comes here. The road goes way back and gets annoyingly bumpy but any vehicle could do it just fine. Lost cell range maybe 2 miles in and the camper vans/rvs were less after that but still plentiful. Pretty area.

Quiet and away from highway.

Nice, quiet, and away from the highway in a tucked away valley/wash. Good rocky hills to climb around too.

Really Enjoyed it

Thank goodness for this place. Stopped for one night on our way home. Little bumpy on the way in. But we felt safe to stay overnight.

Many disrespectful ATVrs

We are on our second week here, having moved once in the wash to get better sun for our solar panels. The sun is weak here this time if year (Nov) and sets early. The other reviews covered the positives. There doesn't seem to be any host nor rangers (we've been on various BLM land all year & seen no rangers & even when we had to call BLM twice at other locations the rangers said they were too far away to help). The main issue here is disrespectful ATVrs. I've watched them close & those ATVs coming in on RVs seem generally respectful but the locals coming in from town on CanAms, etc, are worst. They drive outrageously fast & will run cars off the gravel road. The speed limit is 15 though most cars couldn't go that fast on the poor road. We've had some Jeeps go by really fast but some ATVrs doing at least 70. They even drive incredibly fast at night. So, you are going to get dusted out by them if you try to sit outside or eat outside. Heaven forbid your kid or dog wander into the he road because they can't stop fast in the gravel even if they tried & some look like they'd just keep going even if they hit you.

No Thanks

Like camping on NYC except for the atv that run up and down the wash day and night. Noisy ... Stinks I am never coming here again.

Great spot

Large area, we went 3 miles in with a 29’ 5th wheel and found a nice spot with few campers. Road was in good shape. Very quiet And great views in the upper areas. Two site hosts that we saw giving us more confidence in the safety. Lots of low rolling hills with minimal brush making hiking anywhere easy. It’s a BLM so no hook ups or services of any kind.

Bumpy but mostly quiet

The road in is pretty rough at some points but there was lots of room and mostly quiet but we could hear other campers at some points in the night

Great Scenery & Wildlife Views

Really fun place to stay while visiting Lake Havasu City in the winter. Seems to have questionable inhabitants during the warmer months. NO T-Mobile Service!!! Verizon and AT&T work fine. Not much shade, if really much of any. Bring a canopy or at least an umbrella for when you're outside. Great place for hiking! Very big open space with a navigable gravel road that winds back a few miles.

Getting in craggy at the wash

If you're passing through Lake Havasu and you're finding an need to find a place to stay you don't have a lot of money and you're not planning on staying too long this 14-day BLM land is a great spot to check out
