Get Directions
There are two principal access routes to the campground. Depending upon which route you choose, travel on an unpaved road will range from 1.25 to 5 miles. From Prescott take the Senator Highway (Mt. Vernon Avenue) south for about 6 miles. You will pass the entrance to Goldwater Lake and the community of Groom Creek. The pavement will end about 500 feet before you reach Forest Road 97. Turn right onto Forest Road 97 and travel for another 1.25 miles to the campground on the left side of the road. Forest Road 97 is unpaved but is suitable for all vehicles during dry road conditions. An alternate route from Prescott is to take U.S. Highway 89 (White Spar Road) south for about 6 miles to Forest Road 97. Turn left on Forest Road 97 and go for another 5.1 miles on graded dirt road to the campground.  
4 Reviews of Lower Wolf Creek Campground
Had an awesome weekend of camping all around Arizona!

We found a dispersed campsite right of Senator Hwy in Prescott AZ by Wolf Creek. It was somewhat difficult to get to, but it is possible in a 4x4 and good ground clearance. There were nice fire rings already made and plenty of space for multiple tents if wanted! Plenty of trees for hammocks and plenty of ground space for tents.

Nice and plenty of space

Had a blast driving up to Prescott for the weekend with friends, and we got lucky that we got to have a fire since Prescott has had a lot of fire problems.

Nice but crowded

The Lower Wolf Creek campground was clean but the spaces were really close together. There were a lot of people there with a lot of small children and when driving through the campground you had to be on constant alert looking for the little ones. The bathrooms were clean and the roads were "paved" and fairly well maintained. There was a water faucet but no way to turn it on. I don't know if it was an old pipe or for emergency only but they don't have water available that I could find.

Lower Wolf Creek

Well maintained campground. Clean vault toilets. Nice hiking around area. Good place for families. First come- first served only, no reservations for sites.
