In the February edition of RV Life, there is an article entitled Castle Dome From Mine to Museum. Castle Dome is a very interesting stop and I highly recommend a visit.
When we visited I had planned to boondock along the northwest side of Castle Dome Road leading to the old town site. There are numerous nice level spots to pull the RV off the road for the evening and enjoy a desert sunset. However, the road traverses past portions of the Yuma Proving Ground where the government “tests” things. During our travels along the road we saw drones flying over head, dust trails from rapidly moving vehicles (never could see what was creating them), strange noises and ominous warning signs along the road. Unnerved by what we saw, my wife and I decided we should probably head down the road and find somewhere else to boondock for the evening.
Being used by Uncle Sam for surveillance training or target practice is an adventure in RVing I can do without!
