About Luna Lake

Luna Lake Campground is a pleasant vacation site with open forest, lush meadows, a lake with great fishing, first rate mountain scenery and additional recreation facilities located within easy travel distance. This friendly campground is located in an open stand of ponderosa pines within walking distance of Luna Lake and 5 miles east of the town of Alpine, Arizona, close to the New Mexico border.

Recreation

Fishing, horseback riding, boating, mountain biking and hiking are some of the activities enjoyed by campers. A non-motorized trail system is open to horse, bicycle and pedestrian travel. Visitors should be aware that although horses are allowed on some of the trails, livestock is not permitted in the campground.

Fishing is available in the lake, and a boat ramp provides easy access to the water. The lake is stocked with rainbow trout. The lake is used for irrigation during the summer; fishing is best in spring and early summer. A marina, fishing pier, bait shop, boat rentals and picnic area are located in the day use area.

Families can also learn about the many cultural and natural features of the forest by attending educational programs in July and August.

Facilities

The rustic campground is located a short distance from Luna Lake. Three group campsites are available for reservation, including two double sites and one large group site that can accommodate up to 120. Vault toilets and drinking water are provided.

Natural Features

The area sits at an elevation of 8,000 feet in the scenic Apache National Forest in eastern Arizona. The campground is near 75-acre Luna Lake, surrounded by a ponderosa pine forest. A large wetland for nesting waterfowl lines the lakeshore, providing good wildlife viewing opportunities.

Peaceful and beautiful sunsets

We love this campground because it is a little out of the way so there are usually spaces.  The spaces are large and nestled in a pine forest near the lake.  Clean restrooms and water available.   You can walk to the lake.  A nice place to kayak, bird watch and the sunsets are amazing.  The town of Alpine is small but there is a little store with food and camping items, a couple of restaurants and a nice bar.
