About Kehl Springs Campground

Kehl Springs Camp is located in a stand of ponderosa pines right at the brink of one of Arizona's most awesome geologic features, the Mogollon Rim. Just a short distance from these shady campsites the rim brings the Colorado Plateau to an endwith a precipitous drop-off that plunges two thousand feet from forested highland to Sonoran desert.

From this high perspective you can enjoy spectacular views of Four Peaks, the Sierra Anchas, and the Mazatzals. At night, the lights of Payson wink up from 2,000 feet down and 15 miles away. Other recreation activities to enjoy nearby include hiking, mountain biking, fishing and boating. The General Crook Historic Trail and the Rim Country Scenic Drive pass right by the campground.

Group Campouts and Events: This campground does not have facilities for large groups or group activities. If one campsite cannot accommodate your group (eight people), please call the Mogollon Rim Ranger District at 928-477-2255 to plan your group camp-out at Elks, Moqui, or Long Valley group campgrounds.

Wrong spot

Kehl is on top of the rim not below. Great campground.

Nice area

Beautiful forest and close to the cute towns of Pine and Strawberry. It's also close to Tonto Natural Bridge. May have to drive some rough roads to get there.

First to Review
Kehl Springs was great!

Peaceful and quiet campground. Bit of a trek up 300/Rim Road, but well worth it. Just ten minutes past the campground are great views over looking Mogollon Rim. Decent bathrooms, no water so stock up. No cell service at the campground but up at the Rim you'll get a tad of service. Over all great place if you kinda want to be off grid.
