You'll need to be informed regarding what to bring with you, what facilities are there (or lack of!), ease of access, etc.

Dragoon Mountains Camping

As long as the roads are dry, access by regular car is fine. If there are heavy monsoons, use caution - probably even don't go! These sites are free of charge to stay up to 14 days. There are no facilities, no reliable water sources. Bring everything you need, be sure to clean up & take out all with you.
