Camping in the time of COVID-19 changes things. The CG hosts were friendly, however, and campers kept their distance. Vault toilet was clean and sites were comfortably spaced apart. Most sites are in a fairly open pine forest. Our loop had more RVs than anything else, but everyone observed quiet hours. It would have been wholly peaceful, but SR-64, which heads north to Grand Canyon Village, lies only 400 yards to the east and carries traffic all night long, if sporadically. Maybe in an RV you wouldn't notice, but we were tent camping and were awakened several times by larger vehicles. Still, the meadows surrounding the campground were (in early June) thick with wildflowers.
Stayed here on my way to the Grand Canyon and it was a nice spot overall. Plenty of trees for hammock hanging and a spacious site with friendly hosts. Little hikes lead me to quite a few small scale wildlife encounters that I really enjoyed
This is a childhood favorite and now one of our family’s favorites. Great place to escape the heat of the valley. The campground has many spots to reserve and also many walk up. The lake is stocked with trout throughout the summer. Bathrooms available and water. No hookups.
Primitive camping in beautiful, cool Arizona forest. Most campsites offer a lot of privacy. Dirt roads are a bit rough, so SLOW is an important word!
