“Most beautiful campground but most difficult to access.”
One of the most beautiful sites overlooking a mountain lake. We were the only ones there in May 2018. But there are consequences for your vehicle. The only realistic route to this or any nearby campground is 50 miles from the northern town of Reserve, involving 25 miles of horrible washboard gravel that will shake your vehicle to death at any speed. I really liked this place, but I wouldn't do it again with my vehicle. And although GPS may show an east-west route from Hwy 180 via the ghost town of Mogollon, don't even consider it, as it is single lane, steep, blind hairpin turns, and gravel and large rocks and ruts, and not fit for anything but short high jeeps and OHV's. I rode my dirt bike several miles past the sign in the picture and it was challenging even with that. There was no cell reception in this area.
