We really wanted to stay the night in Arizona so we could add the Arizona sticker to our map of states we’ve camped in since we are trying to camp with the boys in all 50 states before they move out.
We saw a sign for the Virgin River Campground right after we crossed into Arizona from Utah. It is a quiet little campground with no hook-ups and it costs $8 a night. It is right off the I-15 freeway.
It’s desert all around you with beautiful views of rocks and mountains. There are a few trails and we took one down to the river. It’s red like the dirt and was flowing very quickly. There were Joshua trees and wildflowers all around. It was so pretty! The sand by the river was just like beach sand but red. It was so cool! The boys loved playing in it.
We went back to our motor home and the boys started playing with these 2 boys from another campsite. We started talking to that family and it turns out that they were from Fresno! What a small world! They invited us to their campsite and we did s’mores with them, and gave each other tours of our rigs since they were just renting theirs but thinking of buying one.
It got very cold so we all went in our rigs for the night, and we’re planning on heading home tomorrow. It’s been a great time traveling far from home and we can’t wait for our next opportunity to!
