Centered between I-10 and I-8 in Arizona, North of Yuma, the KOFA National Wildlife Refuge is a great spot to get away and camp for free in wide open spaces. The name comes from the King of Arizona mine, as this refuge was the site of many gold mines. You can see some of the old mines here, at a museum, or various closed off mine shafts throughout.
Lucky visitors may also see Bighorn Sheep or Gila Monsters, which are native to the region.
