KINGMAN, Ariz. – The Bureau of Land Management (BLM) Kingman Field Office will begin a four-month restroom renovation project at Burro Creek Campground on June 6, improving facilities that have been in operation since 1991. The project, which is expected to run through October, will update plumbing, including water, septic and vent lines; and will replace most interior fixtures, such as toilets, stall partitions, sinks, water fountains, access doors and vanity mirrors. External improvements will include replacing the roof and installing solar panels for downward shielded lights, which will enhance nighttime safety. 

Due to construction, visitor access to restroom facilities and the surrounding areas at the campground may be limited. In addition, the water system that serves the site may be temporarily offline for short periods of time. Temporary restrooms will be available; however, visitors should call the Kingman Field Office at 928-718-3700 for current information on the status of restroom facilities prior to camping.

“Improvements like these are part of BLM’s priority to enhance the recreational experience on public lands in Kingman,” said Amanda Dodson, Kingman Field Manager. “We are excited to complete this project to create a safer and improved recreation experience for visitors.”

Burro Creek Campground is located 72 miles south of Kingman between Wikieup and Wickenburg on Highway 93. The recreation site features a campground, picnic area, and desert garden containing a large variety of native cacti as well as day hiking and backpacking opportunities. The site is managed by the BLM Arizona Kingman Field Office.
