“Peaceful and quiet”

We loved this campsite. We were headed to Mesa (as most others were, it seems), but it is closed until April, 2019. Sites were very well spaced and large. We had no trouble finding one to fit and the campground was not busy this time of year. Our site was not too shady, so we were able to use our solar. Each site as a fire pit and... more

Our original plan was to stay at Mesa due to the reviews and hook ups. We were a little concerned with day temps as this was mid June. The plan didnt work as Mesa is first come first serve. We even arrived early on a Wednesday but everything was already taken and honestly, I didnt really like the look and feel of the sites. Well, w... more

“Smaller, Quieter, ‘Overflow’ alternative for Mesa CG”

Reviewed May 02, 2016

We headed for Mesa Campground early on a Friday morning (mid April) having been warned it, and Gila Cliff Dwellings, would get very crowded quickly over that weekend: but we found the campground already part-full with all back-in sites taken, the only vacant spots being pull-overs on the sides of the loop road.

“Beautiful Mountain Camping”

Reviewed Mar 21, 2016

Overall Rating

We intended to stay at Mesa Campground with hookups but they were full so we opted for Upper End and it was delightful. The crisp mountain air was a nice break from the warmer valley temps and who can resist the smell of pines wafting in the breeze? Upper End is small but walking access to Lake Roberts which is pretty good fishing from... more
