Probably one of the best campgrounds I have visited. It is spacious, quiet, and clean. The lake is fabulous for kayaking, or just hiking around. Each campsite is spaced well away from neighboring sites, among beautiful, tall pines. There is room to stretch out and relax.
There are numerous hiking trails all around in the park as well as plenty of places to ride a bike.
The elevation of 6,200' makes for very pleasant weather most of the year. I have spent Thanksgiving at this location and loved that it got cold at night and a little warmer during the day. I have stayed at this campground in the spring, summer and fall - but love the fall the best.
Nearby Show Low and Lakeside are quaint little towns that complete the experience.
