Overall Rating

This is organized dry camping in northern Arizona. Water is available at multiple locations dispersed through the 156 asphalt pad campsites. Most campsites have their own picnick table and fire pit. Each loop has its own building with toilets in good working order. Though spacing varies between campsites, most have generous spacing. Here you are surrounded by flora and this results in a peaceful setting. Bears and mountain lions have been reported but none were seen. We did have a skunk wonder through every evening about the same time. There is very little noise. One of the main reasons to be here is for the fishing at nearby Big Lake. The nearby general store has some food supplies, fishing supplies and rents boats. The nearest town of any significance was about 30 miles away. A dump station is available for an additional fee. Plan on no cell service unless you have a booster. Check the weather as it rains often during Arizona monsoon season. During our visit in late august mosquitos were bothersome and the campground was perhaps half filled.
