About Dairy Springs
Dairy Springs is a comfortable campground tucked away in a scenic area of northern Arizona. Its main attraction is the seasonal Mormon Lake which, when filled with water, draws visitors for fishing, windsurfing and wildlife watching. Hiking, biking, horseback riding and photography are available year-round. The facility has both individual and group sites that can accommodate groups of many sizes, including large families. Natural Features: Dairy Springs sits in a picturesque forest of old Ponderosa pine and oak trees with a grassy understory. The campground is at an elevation of 7,100 ft. and has summers that are characteristically sunny, warm and dry, with the occasional afternoon thunderstorm. Dairy Springs is adjacent to Double Springs Campground, which has a spring that runs to the surface just above the camping area. Recreation: Recreation usually centers around fishing in nearby Mormon Lake (seasonally). The area is ripe with additional outdoor activities. Three hiking trails originate at Dairy Springs and one at nearby Double Springs. The trails lead to scenic overlooks of Mormon Lake and surrounding prairies, forests and volcanoes. Wildlife watching is also popular. Its a very good place to spot hawks, including northern harriers and ospreys. The area boasts a healthy population of elk and mule deer too. Facilities: The moderate-sized campground has 30 single unit campsites with tables and cooking grills, in addition to two group sites that can each hold 40 people and may be reserved at the same time for a group of up to 80 campers. Campsites are nicely spaced with plenty of room and shade. Visitors can walk along a self-guided nature trail or attend a campfire program at the facilitys amphitheater. Fifteen single unit sites are available at the adjacent Double Springs Campground on a first-come, first-served basis. Nearby Attractions: The closest town is Mormon Lake, Arizona. This small and scenic mountain resort village is conveniently close to the campground and offers horseback rides, mountain bike rentals, a country store, service station and steakhouse.

Camping at Dairy Springs

Although it rained he whole time we were there, we still had a blast. Dairy springs isn't far from Mormon Lake which had decent fishing. The campgrounds isn't big and there isn't a whole lot of privacy. You're surrounded by tall trees and a few hiking trails. It's a fun place to take the family.
