“Nice Arizona state park with a mountain view, small lake, and hot springs”

Reviewed Feb 26, 2018

Overall Rating

Another nice Arizona state park. Highlights are the trails, small lake, a natural hot springs tub, mountain view, and well kept up campground. Nearby in Safford and Thatcher there are several places to purchase groceries: Safeway, Bashas (Arizona-based, family-owned and -operated grocery chain), and Walmart. Also, if you like g... more

“Beautiful and quiet”

Reviewed Jan 04, 2018

Overall Rating

Very peaceful and well maintained. We were there for New Years weekend. The Park Rangers made their rounds enough to be sure everything was going well, but were always friendly and unobtrusive. Site 36 is a “backwards” site ... we weren’t supposed to but we went in the opposite direction so our campsite wouldn’t be on the road. This... more

“A nice park”

Reviewed Oct 21, 2017

Overall Rating

This is another nice Arizona State Park. It’s well-maintained and clean. It’s along the shore of small Roper Lake. There are lots of birds to see and mountains on both sides of the campground. Mt. Graham and the adjacent National Forest area are well worth the drive for an illustration of the effects of elevation on vegetation.

“Quiet & Level!”

Reviewed Mar 06, 2017

Overall Rating

Our spot was easy to back in to and very level. We got in after hours (but before the gate closed at 10 pm) and picked up our vehicle tag the next morning. We had water and electricity and were able to dump the tanks on our way out. The folks at the visitor's center were friendly and able to tell us about a few things to do in the a... more

“Roomy sites with great birdwatching, walking path and thoughtful touches.”

Reviewed Feb 22, 2016

Overall Rating

We opted for the dry camping loop (Gila Loop) because we didn't need to hook up. There are water spigots located throughout the loop. Each site has a picnic table or two, and all are paved and level. It looks like they've raised the rates to $18 (dry) and $28 (full hookup) since the original listing. We visited February 21 and 22, 2016... more

Reviewed Mar 08, 2015

Overall Rating

2nd time here for us. We stayed in the hookup loop and were very happy with the site. Park is laid out well and the bonus is a small warm spring hot tub/spa. Back in town of Safford is a GREAT Mexican restaurant, Casa Manana.

“Relaxing & Peaceful”

Reviewed Mar 07, 2015

Overall Rating

We were surprised with how much we liked it here! We stayed in the dry camping loop because 1) it was only $15/night instead of $25, and 2) it was way less crowded. There were a few people that came and went overnight, but we mostly had the place to ourselves. The small lake is beautiful, and our kids had a great time watching the ... more
