“Nice campground in the mountains”

Reviewed Jul 08, 2018

Overall Rating

Biggest draw is the lake - good for kayaking, canoeing, swimming, and fishing. Hiking trails (except for paved path around the lake) are a drive down the mountain aways. Long winding road (about 11 miles) up the mountain to reach campground - might be challenging for large RV (although there were some in the campground). Only one dumps... more

“LOVE this area!”

Reviewed Sep 25, 2014

Jess grew up tent camping at Payson Lakes so its always been one of her favorites. We loved our campsite - we drove the other loops and it is definitely one of the largest. Even right next to the road, we really had no problems with noise. Lots of great hammock trees! Lake was great for swimming, and we all loved it. Pretty busy in the... more
