We were pleased to find this spot within the Forest with T-Mobile service! Close to the city.
You are high in elevation, so it can be cold at night. It was below freezing Mid-April.
You go on the road and pass a large area with possibly a lot...
When you turn on the Coconino road, you can't camp right there, you must continue past a cattle guard when it becomes the National Forest, about 1 mile from the main road.
You can clearly see there's a few spots to camp. The road can be rough,...
This to me is a real camping, with a lot of trees, no hookup, not too close to the neighbours.

T-Mobile worked well, we were able to work and...

As mentioned by others, the dump is located by the car wash.

We camped in a 19ft Motorhome RV in the Ringtail...
The camping was very well maintained and has a lot of trees for privacy. The host was very friendly. We have a small 19ft motorhome so we did not have difficulties to park, but I can imagine some would have. There were no hookups, but water...
We were happy to camp here since there was cellular service and the possibility of having non-electrical (20$) and electrical (30$) campsites. It is a the very end of the park road.
We chose the non-electrical since we do not absolutely need...
This state park campground is a gem!
You can have a campsite right by the water, there's bathroom/shower/laundry facilities, beautiful beaches, an easy loop of at least 5km you can walk/run, 2 short nature trails, and plenty of vegetation and...
