Stayed here for two nights and was impressed by the staff, availability of ice and firewood, and the quick jaunt to Woods Canyon Lake.
If you’re expecting dense pine and privacy, this isn’t your place. The network of campgrounds up here combined with the sparse tree growth sometimes makes for a parking lot-like feel. I’ll look for something a bit less trafficked next time.
I wouldn't say this is an awe inspiring getaway, but it is a refreshing place to escape the heat of the Valley of the Sun in Phoenix. It is a very large campground near Woods Canyon Lake. Some spots are very shady, in the pines, and some spots are not so shady, near the meadow. The campground hosts are very friendly and host Movies in the Meadow and "Ranger" classes for the kids on the weekends. It is very, very common, to have Elk wander through your campsite daily. Good for either tents or trailers.
