Free Camping. Great place to get away from the Phoenix summer heat. The first half mile past the houses off I40 seem to be where the long stay (14) day RV and trailers camp out. If you continue up the mountain past them you can find the more dispersed camping away from others. It is very quiet up there and in August the temps were around 50 in the morning and around 80 during the day. The reason for only 4 stars is the bees. Not sure if they are burrow bees or not but they were everywhere and took over all water sources so keep that in mind. Also cattle go through the woods so don’t be shocked when you wake up to a a few 700lb cows in your campsite.
Very pretty area. Can be quite secluded if you go back a ways. There are large areas for groups of people in RVs, Vans, or Tents. Open Range, so cows and elk grazing isn't uncommon. T-Mobile 4G LTE service works great (either 3 or 4 bars out of 5). AT&T 4G LTE service is around 2 or 3 bars out of 5, so not terrible. The park is very clean so PLEASE TAKE YOUR TRASH.
