    I want to get back into camping/fishing/hunting hanging out with nature and am looking for some good camping/fishing/shooting/dove hunting locations.

    Criteria:

    preferably no official campground/pay site
    2WD friendly trails or sand
    site on or near the water/lake
    as close to UofA campus as possible


    Please send me tips/locations/direction etc.

    Thanks!!

    HA! On or close to water, and close to UA? Good luck. There's Apache Junction that has some lakes, but it's hour and a half north. Then Padagonia(sp) that's south, but it's pretty gross from what iv heard.

    See build thread.
    Im planning a camping trip on mt Lemmon off mt bigelow road in the next couple months.

    Not what you really requested but it's still a camping trip and even though it may involve my neighbor and crew from work, I think it'd be cool if a bunch of tacomas were mobbin and hoggin the spots up there.
