Great campground

Nice area. Didn't catch any fish and lots of trees and rocks near water by camps. Didn't notice a dock till we were leaving. Enough room between neighbors, clean bathrooms. No phone service but it was nice to be off the grid. We will definitely camp here again!

Apache Lake, lower Burnt Corral

Apache Lake is a beautiful desert canyon lake. Getting there is a little difficult via a dirt road known as the Apache Trail. Nice improved maintained sites, most are shoreline and with fire rings, picnic tables. There are some open beach camping spaces as well. Expect a dirt and rock floor, mature desert trees and low scrub. Within the campground is a small boat ramp with dock and a parking lot for your trailer if you bring your watercraft There is a self serve pay station and a camp host. Dumpsters, vault toilets and a few freshwater stations.

Beautiful water front view!

You must get a camping pass at the campground. You can not use a Tonto pass. There are toilet bathrooms only with toilet paper (hopefully, one ran out in the evening and but was filled by morning) There are NOT sinks in the bathrooms and the toilets do not flush (like a multi person outhouse)

Our campsite was big and right off the water! We kayak and this was a nice place to do so however there were a ton of boats, some loud speed boats.
