Vault restroom was clean compared to others. Small grocery store at the entrance, walking distance from campsite, never did visit. Few tents and RVers... more

“Great Open Space for Larger Rigs”

Reviewed May 24, 2018

Overall Rating

Just stayed three nights last week. It was a long drive from Tucson, made even longer by the horrible roads (mainly the mule pass area) but it was worth it once we arrived. The site is easily accessible for larger rigs which seems a bit rare these days. The campground was empty except for one other small toy hauler who left the next... more

“Should have been a nice stay but noisy neighbors and butchered a horse/elk made me not a fan”

Reviewed Apr 05, 2018

Overall Rating

It could be I caught this place at the wrong time, there was a large group of RVs in one location which was far enough away except they didn't leash the four dogs they brought with them and left their generator running all night long which wasn't loud except when it's in a canyon where after a few hours it starts to become bothersome. ... more

“Shady, cool, pleasant and free”

Reviewed Aug 26, 2017

Overall Rating

This is a really pleasant National Forest campground, in the northern end of the Gila National Forest. The sites are shaded by large ponderosa pines, and the individual campsites are huge. I couldn't even see another camper from mine, though I did have a bit of a walk to the bathroom! It was very quiet, day and night. I think there we... more

“Beautiful ponderosa pine forest site”

Reviewed Apr 22, 2015

Overall Rating

This is a free national forest campground. There are 10 very well spaced, generous sized, flat sites among huge ponderosa pines. Each site has a fire ring, a picnic table, and a large "tree trunk" table. There is a vault toilet on site. We provided our own tp. We stayed in mid April and an occasional hunter spent a night or two but ... more
