“Very nice”

Nice park with paved roads. The sites are gravel with picnic tables, ramada and fire pit. There are garbage and toilets but that's it. Great views but if you take the road too Young Az. ( not a rv road) which is about 5 miles from the campgrounds you will find some amazing views.

“Beautiful”

Reviewed Mar 12, 2017

Overall Rating

I camped on the Mesquite loop for 3 nights in March 2017. There were 10 camp sites on my loop and only 1 other camper. It was so quiet that I heard the birds wings flapping as they flew. My spot had a beautiful view of the lake and mountains on both the east and west sides which made for gorgeous sunrises and sunsets. The other spots in the campground did not have a great view of the lake.

There are no hook ups. There is a bathroom with a flush toilet and sink, and a water faucet by the bathroom but you can not hook it up to your rig. There were also warning signs that the water at Schoolhouse, in a few faucets, had tested positive for lead, but it did not name which faucets. So I didn't drink any of the water. Bathrooms were cleaned daily by the campground host.

No showers at this campground, but there are free showers at Windy Hill campground. I just went over there to shower. Showers were clean and adequate. The Windy Hill campground had a lot more RV's in it. I think this was due to the fact that there were showers and cell service was a little better here. I didn't notice if they had hookups or not.

You need a Tonto pass to camp and you can pick those up at basically any business in the area. There is a gas station and small store just to the South of the campground about a mile or two.

Cell service was very sketchy. Sometimes it would work and other times it wouldn't. Sometimes I would have service bars but when I tried to make a call it said "Emergency calls only". I talked to the other camper on my loop and they were having the same problem.

I would recommend camping here. The weather was in the 70s during the day and down in the 30s at night during the month of March so take an extra blanket or plan to use the heat! The scenery was gorgeous. Definitely take time to drive down Hwy 88 toward Apache Junction, it is a beautiful drive!
