Except for the hottest months of the year, Organ Pipe is a unique opportunity to tour some relatively unspoiled backcountry of the Arizona Desert. After wet winters, the wildflowers among the cactus are spectacular. Newcomers must stop in first at the Visitors Center for orientation, backstory and advice. Some of the best scenery is accessible only by dirt road. Some secret canyons and tinajas accessible only on foot or horseback abound with rare plants and animals. Be sure to get supplies and gasoline in Ajo or Why, AZ. The campground is very outdated. There is a danger due to activities of organized criminal "coyotes" who shepherd undocumented workers thru some parts of Organ Pipe on the way to Phoenix and other metropolises.
