The Bouse Fisherman Intaglio

visit, enjoy and protect the Arizona Outback

The fisherman is an intaglio (geoglyph or earth figure), a large figure created in the soil by Indians many years ago.

Visit the site of this protected giant on Plomosa Road near Bouse where you will also find a interpretive sign and bronze plaque set in a stone pillar.

Special recognition has been given to Con & Dawn Bergland by the Bureau of Land Management as "Friends of the Fisherman"

Plomosa Road ( off Hwy 72 in Bouse) is also referred to as the "Quartzsite Scenic Route". Wander through spectacular natural desert vistas, cross a mountain range, and drop down into an open valley before you come into Quartzsite. The road is paved and well maintained, scenic viewing and parking areas are abundant. To receive the full effect of the views, a round trip, is a must.

Swansea Wilderness
Arizona Outback - Swansea Wilderness
Scenic site looking NE from Swansea Ghost Town in the 16,400-acre Swansea Wilderness. This is a computer enhanced photograph taken from one of the many 4-wheel drive trails - all the color and mountains are real! only the texture has been added. Excellent area for jeep rides, photographs & wildlife. Herds of wild burros roam this area. First time travelers should enter the wilderness from Bouse / Plomosa Rd. by Sandy

30 miles east of Bouse is the famous Swansea Ghost Town, once a copper mining community, where buildings and remnants still exist.

20 miles east of Bouse, in the remote Butler Valley, is Camp Bouse. The secret Army base built to train men with a "new" tank designed for night warfare. Camp Bouse memorial monuments are located on Hwy 72, across from the A & C Mercantile Co, in Bouse. The 2nd weekend of Feb every year there is a WWII Camp Bouse dedication and reunion on Saturday and tours to the original Camp Bouse on Sundays.

Bouse Community Park: Camping, Desert Hiking, Playground, Restrooms and Equestrian Camping. Located off Hwy 72 on Plomosa Road. Call La Paz County Parks Department for additional information - (928) 667-2069.
