Gila Box Riparian National Conservation Area – Safford, Arizona

1 min read

RV camping and boondocking on BLM land near the Gila River and exploring Gila Box Riparian National Conservation Area near Safford, Arizona. While hiking along the bank of the Gila River I encountered a Gila monster for the first time. The Gila Box is a picturesque canyon lined with Fremont cottonwood, Goodding’s willow, and Arizona sycamore trees. The inviting clear cool waters of the Gila River are popular for kayaking, canoeing, tubing, swimming, wading, and fishing.
