Nice area right on the verde river. River was flooded with a very strong current and made hiking to the hot springs extremely difficult none of the other campers successfully made it to the hot springs. I was fortunate to have two kayaks with me and was able to cross the river with them and had the hot springs all to myself.

Spent two nighs in October. This is a popular spot due to the great hot spring on the other side of the river. First night was Saturday and it was a bit crowded with the best campsite on the river already taken. People kept filling in through the night. Someone was firing a gun in the late evening.
