Lake Havasu is 116* this weekend so we decided to head north to cooler temps
Williams AZ is about 150 miles north and 50 miles from the Grand canyon
We dry camp at 7000' elevation. This morning it was 59* and day temps were low 80s
Rode up to top of Bill Williams mtn which is 10,000'.
Met some fellow riders there too

I remember seeing that Sterling truck at the bottom. Cool truck.

We were just past that on the Whitehorse lake road about a mile in. We had a cool ride to Sycamore point which was about 20 miles from camp. As we got back in the RZR it started to pour. it made for a fun cool ride.

Here is my ride from a couple of weeks ago on a morning desert ride. Didn't have time to look at any photos from this trip yet.



Wish I had the chance to say hello.

We were over on FR354 by Summit Mountain where they just built that new Bar Cooley ranch or something.
Kinda bummed since it was a water tank for the elk and deer we would watch go over to there
Fun ride to the top there too
We saw a couple rzrs go by when it rained and the passenger holding an umbrella lol
We went the back way to JD dam and heading to Sycamore when a car got in front of us so we passed on that
I'll have to send you a pm next time we head out

I saw some of those huge homes on Google earth. They are amazing.

Cool area over near Sycamore Canyon for sure. We have some spots at Stoneman Lake area that I have set up with my camera to watch elk play in the pond. They are cool animals.





They kept trying to catch me when they would hear the camera but never did. Lots of fun watching the youngsters.

Those are awesome pics!
We're planning a trip out towards Munds park in september.
I need some camping tips. We like to dry camp but campgrounds are good too.
This is one of our favorite pics heading to Sycamore canyon.
And ol Bud had a different idea of what elk were like. It was his goal to find something to play with.

We are thinking about making a run to Williams next week. Where is an easy place to dry camp in the woods? Maybe 2 bigger trailers.

2 options
Option 1
From vegas you'll see 3 exits for Williams
Take first one #161
You'll go downtown and turn left on 7th street
Go across RR tracks and turn left on Cartaract Lake Rd / There's a campground there and Grand canyon brewery across the street.
You'll be on the north side of the 40
You'll go past Elephant Rock golf course and the road will turn to gravel and find a spot there.
Not as many spots but usually bigger
This a spot with plenty of room

Option 2
More riding and more sites
You'll be on the south side of the 40
Same exit but got to 4th street, also called Perkingsville rd. There's a stop sign in the middle of the road and Rupertos mexican food on the right
Turn right.
You'll go past the reservoir/dam and go about 8 miles
You'll come to a big opening and FR108 to Coleman lake on the right
Probably best bet for first time and a couple big rigs
Next is FR139 on left. 1/4 mile down on left is big spot but very popular
you can drive down further for more spots
Next is FR110 to White horse lake.
Next is FR354 where we just camped. Road up to Summit Mtn is fun
We usually unload the rzr in town and the wife will scout out the spots first
Weekends can get busy
We like this spot. It's the road that goes up to Bill Williams mtn I think FR111. Not well marked
It's big enough to get me turned around.
But you can still see ruts in the mud to the right when we almost got stuck last time lol
rained for 2 days

185ez, great photo of the horses. We have had a heard of them running next to our camp in a meadow near Forest Lakes, They are impressive.

I love your dog as well I have a miniature of yours that loves to ride. She is 15 but stills enjoys riding and camping.



Thank you for helping with directions.

@Discount Tire

Have you gone to Jerome the back way?
We camp off Perkingsville RD and never went down too far
It turns into FS 318 and about 40 miles to Jerome from where we camp
We're heading to Williams tomorrow and looking for a new place to ride to
