Hoyer Campground is situated among the ponderosa pine forests of eastern Arizona, and is one of the most popular campgrounds in the area for families and seniors. Is is less than a mile from Greer Lakes in the middle of the Apache National Forest. Hiking and fishing are especially popular.
Greer Lakes and the Little Colorado River are within walking distance for avid anglers seeking out rainbow, cutthroat, brook and brown trout. Hikers can check out several trails within a short drive. Those wishing to relax on a scenic drive can explore the White Mountain and Coronado Trail Scenic Byways.
Curious campers can take part in guided nature walks around the lake or attend educational programs at the facility's amphitheater on Saturday evenings during the summer.
This large facility contains nearly 100 campsites. Sites are shaded and lie on a bed of pine needles or grass. Roads are gravel.
The new shower facilities and dump station are now open. Campers can also purchase bundled firewood from the on-site campground host.
The campground sits in a heavily forested pine and aspen forest at an elevation of 8,300 feet in the scenic and remote White Mountains. Chipmunks and Abert's squirrels are common campground residents, and mule deer and elk inhabit the area as well. The nearby reservoir is one of three area lakes on the Little Colorado River.
Summer temperatures can be very pleasant because of the elevation. However, the rainy season often brings afternoon thunderstorms from late June through August. Visitors should come prepared for rain and cool nighttime temperatures.
The closest towns are Greer and Springerville, Arizona. Campers can find gas, groceries, restaurants and equipment rentals in Greer.
Visitors can explore endless vistas and take part in many outdoor activities in the surrounding Apache-Sitgreaves National Forest, which encompasses 2 million acres of magnificent mountain country in east-central Arizona and New Mexico.
