Dispersed Camping Area
A lovely, quiet place, even on the 4th of July. Beautiful. Has picnic tables but no other amenities. You bring it in with you, take it out with you. No trash. Not sure if there's toilets (we brought our own).
We are fairly new to camping in Arizona. We decided to go camping last minute this past weekend, so we had no reservations. We found this area randomly, and we were very pleased. It was easy to access, and dispersed campgrounds lined the road. Tons of space between sites. There were plenty of other campers near us, but it still felt fairly private. The fire pits were well maintained. Our site had a beautiful set up of stones surrounding the pit. The campsite was very clean. The area was pretty, but not spectacular. There is road noise from the highway, but that’s the price you pay for easy access. It didn’t bother us for a quick getaway.
Neat little place to go see the views from the rim. The Old Rim Raod gets a little busy for my taste, but being 50 yards off the road helps. The temperatures were great 70s in the day and high 40s at night. The wind starts late morning and blows pretty good until well after sun set. The camp host was very friendly and informative about the dangers of local wildlife.
Fires rarely allowed and the wind can make camping here a bit chilly. Nothing can take away the view though! Some of this area is literally at the edge of the Mog Rim! I wouldn’t bring tiny kids here for fear of them tumbling down the cliff, but adults looking for a quiet getaway would love it here.
