About This Campground

Located in the scenic Apache-Sitgreaves National Forest in north central Arizona near the town of Heber, Canyon Point has a range of individual and group campsites to suit many visitors.

The campground sits in a heavily wooded pine and aspen area 5 miles from the popular Willow Springs Lake. Campers enjoy trout fishing (both lake and stream), hiking, boating and photography.

Recreation

Hikers enjoy staying at Canyon Point because of its access to trails to the Sinkhole and the edge of the Mogollon Rim, which offers a spectacular view.

Its proximity to Willow Springs Lake also draws boaters and anglers. Families who stay on the weekends often attend educational programs given by Forest Service rangers at the facility's amphitheater.

Facilities

Canyon Point has 113 campsites, 32 of which have electricity. Tents, trailers and motor homes up to 75 ft. are allowed at the campground. Three of the single unit sites are accessible.

Larger families can be accommodated at the five double sites which can hold up to 16 people each, and there are two group sites that can host up to 25 or 55 people, respectively. Each site has a picnic table and campfire ring with grill.

Showers and restrooms are provided, and firewood is available for sale.

Natural Features

Canyon Point lies in a forested area above the Mogollon Rim at an elevation of 7,500 ft. The Mogollon Rim, pronounced by locals as "muggy-own," is a 200-mile long escarpment in northern Arizona that ranges between 5,000 and 7,000 ft in elevation. The unique landscape was created by the uplift of the Colorado Plateau followed by erosion and faulting that has sculpted spectacular canyons and buttes. The rim serves as the geographical divide between the cool high country above and the hot, dry desert below. Summer daytime temperatures are generally 20 - 40 degrees cooler than the greater Phoenix Area. However, the rainy season often brings afternoon thunderstorms from late June through August. Visitors should come prepared for possible rain and cool nighttime temperatures.

Nearby Attractions

Forest Lakes, Arizona is located approximately 2 miles east of the campground. Visitors can find food, fuel, telephones, and groceries. The nearest full service community is Overgaard, 22 miles east on Highway 260.
