About

National Forest

Apache-Sitgreaves National Forest

At the southern end of the East Fork canyon is Buffalo Crossing Campground, an old Civilian Conservation Corp (CCC) era site which actually boasts the largest campsites along the river.The East Fork meanders through the forested valley shaded by tall ponderosa pines and bordered by grasses, alders, and cottonwoods.__Campsites are located a few steps from the stream to protect the Black River's unique riparian zone, but access to the river is easy as the undergrowth serves more to enhance the river's picturesque nature than to obstruct easy passage.Click__here__for a map.

Perfect Spot for fishing

-Update- 🛑Currently Closed 🛑

The NFS is repairing the bridge to this site, so it is closed until 2024.

———- Such a nice little campground- perfect for fishing. Right next to the river with trash bins and toilets.

The lack of trees make this site seem more crowded then it actually is

Sites are first come , first served.
