Arizona BLM Colorado River District Kingman Field Office

The Kingman Field Office of the Colorado River District in Arizona encompasses approximately 2.5 million acres in northwestern Arizona, including the Mount Tipton Wilderness and the Cerbat Foothills Recreation Area. It was (re-)opened in 1966 and is administered by the BLM.  

This area is part of the Southwestern Basin and Range area of Arizona, and is primarily within the Mojave Desert. Natural water sources are seasonal only, and typically dry. It’s a native habitat to plant species such as Arizona lupine and wild rhubarb, and home to many types of wildlife, from coyotes and pronghorn to grouse and golden eagles.   

I spent time in two areas within this site: free dispersed van-camping near Chloride, and hiking the Monolith Garden Loop Trail in the Cerbat Foothills Recreation Area right at Kingman. 

Access to this area is free and just about every type of outdoors recreational activity is possible here. Areas within the site to check out include the Mount Tipton Wilderness, the Dolan Springs area, the old mining town of Chloride, and the Cerbat Foothills Recreation Area. .
