Highlight: Kingman Wash
When you are in Las Vegas or traveling through the area, maybe it's time to decompress, hit the trail and camp on a beach. Kingman Wash is a short & easy drive from the strip, right off the interstate, leading to a wonderful cove with plenty of room for camping with friends. The colorful rock cliffs that surround the cove descend to over 100 feet below the waterline, making this spot popular with scuba divers. The lake is renowned for its clear waters and ideal year-round water temperatures. If fishing or kayaking is your thing, then this area is a great spot for free camping and small boat launching.

Mapping Crew - Arizona

While living in the Midwest, I developed a passion for searching out new trails and hidden spots. That passion continues to this day in the beautiful southwestern United States. My wife and I are full-time RVers who travel from region to region exploring every nook and cranny we can find. While we're getting to know the locals, we gain insight into these areas, then passing on that knowledge onto our subscribers. We truly enjoy traversing long, beautiful back-country routes with epic campsites, but we equally enjoy pushing the limits on difficult rock crawling trails. Our rig was built to do everything and that's what we hope to share with our subscribers. Please visit our website to follow us and for opportunities to join us on our adventures. You can also view our vast video library on YouTube XPLOREMOR.
