Campground is extremely clean, bathrooms were very nice. Family was able to escape the heat of Phoenix without traveling very far. It was nice to take a little trip into Jerome and see such a unique town built right into the mountain.
At the right time of the year this is a great spot. Week days are better than weekends. It's a clean area but occasionally you will find remains from the "bad camper." If you find the right spot it can be very peaceful and quiet.
It's unusual to find electric hookups at USFS campgrounds in Arizona. The spaces are close together where there is power. During the week, the campers were retired people, mostly from Prescott. In June, the weather got hot by 11 AM, so being able to run the AC was needed, even at almost 8000 elevation. On the weekend, several families came and the adults stayed inside their RVs and let their kids be extremely loud until 9 pm. Next time, I would stay in the lower loop where spots are much bigger and take a generator. There isn't much to do, so camping with some friends would be better. The road up to Potato Patch has many 6% grades and tight mountain curves.
Two loops, A and B. Stayed in loop B, with electricity. Asphalt level pull-throughs, pump water by composting bathrooms. Sites close, but all had trees to shield table. Fire restrictions currently. Several hiking trails reasonably close, small fishing lake 2 mi. distance, ghost city of Jerome on one side of mountain, Prescott on other. Located at 7K elevation, on winding road.
The road goes for miles. You pass a few cattle crossings. Close gate after driving through. Some area big enough for large groups of about 5-7 cars!
Cattle running during day and coyotes at night. Beautiful.
Only 20 min down the hwy to Jerome
