Buckeye Regional Park is just west of Phoenix and has free dispersed camping. We’re impressed that it’s free since each “campsite” comes with a shaded picnic table and a GARBAGE CAN! A big bonus, since finding a place to get rid of garbage is part of the boondocking chore list.
Cell and data are great here, full bars of 4G AT&T and Verizon. We also get over the air television. I wonder if the town of Buckeye is going to be as awesome as this campsite.
My Dad mentioned that he would like to see other angles on our locations, since I try and make the spot look as fabulous as possible. Well, pictured above are the only other campers in sight (behind that RV is an Airstream). I’ll put a shot of what’s behind us on Facebook.
There’s another loop for camping, but it’s much more populated.
Dinner Last Night:
Well, before I go into dinner, we had a really awesome lunch. Roasted Butternut Squash Slider with Caramelized onions and Sriracha Mayo, wow that was good. Her method of cooking the squash in the skin is genius. I saved the left-overs for risotto tonight.
For dinner we had Spaghetti & No-Meatballs with a salad. Brian said “who needs meat?” as we gobbled it down. It was delicious.
