I will mention two dangers to be aware of here: 1)Rattlesnakes, they do live in this area and 2)Lower Burnt Corral Recreation Site is situated in a wash and flash floods could occur without warning.
Name: Lower Burnt Corral Recreation Site
Lower Burnt Corral Recreation Site is located in a dry sandy wash on the south side of the boat launch at Burnt Corral Recreation Site. There are quite a few trees for shade from the summer sun with picnic tables scattered about. The roads are rather sandy and a couple spots could cause a problem getting through but they can be avoided.
Campsites: I rather liked this site, there are picnic table scattered about some under the trees others next to the water. There weren't any fire rings nor were the campsite numbered. They really weren't even specific locations just a picnic table under a tree.
