Great spot

Beautiful views albeit mostly hiking along the dirt road… girlfriend and I went in my truck in May, 2021. I have been up to this site a couple times before in July and August months. Never have been disappointed… like any camping site, it’s ideal if you can get there Monday-Thursday but weekends…

Private and Clean

This site was very private and expansive for the location. There is the lower campsite however it is a bit down from the area where the tents were set up. There were multiple fire rings set up around the camp and the rangers who visited us informed that we may not use them and they were going to be…

A bit noisy

The camp sites are nice and large. Spaced out for plenty of room. Sound carries like crazy so kids screaming and dogs barking can be disappointing. The bathrooms are well kept as well. The lake is beautiful and a easy walk around for exercise. No campfires allowed.

High in the Jackpines

About 15 miles from 3 Way on 78, a nice little CG w pit toilets and no water. Though next to the road, there isn’t much traffic and our night was peaceful. I would guess that there are a dozen sites, fairly flat and good for tenting.

Accessible and Scenic

We stopped here on our way further west. There were 2 other campers there, but we were able to find a great spot where they couldn’t be seen.

Plenty of sites, ours was 1.5 miles off 191. Easy to get to in our 26’ bus. Saw a handful of vehicles pass by, likely on there way to Hot Wells.

KOA all the way!

Super clean sites, loved the firepit social area, laundry rooms and bathrooms were toasty warm during the crazy polar vortex weather. Love the last minute night check in option.

Difficult to find the best spot.

Three roads fork off Fuller Rd. (A027) toward the river. The middle fork already had an RV in the flattest spot, which probably had the easiest access down the very steep canyon walls. We went farther west and had a steep hike into the canyon. I didn't camp, but advise there are no facilities,…

Not Much To Recommend

Easy access off 191. Shot gun shells, bullet casings, cigarrette butts, broken bottles, mild trash, wide open desert terrain with panorimic Mountain views. BLM free. No services. If this is your thing, go for it. Spent one night.

Wanted to love it

We did not end up camping here. Beautiful location. Road is super rough and narrow in spots going up Mt Graham. Drove up end of June 2020 and there were so many cars parked that you could not drive the camp ground loop to check out the sites. It did not appear to be monitored by a ranger so people…

Great campground.

You are right off the road so there is some noise, but it is beautiful. Easy drive to get to. Stayed here 2 times in a couple of weeks, two separate sites, and did fine. 21 ft trailer

Peaceful in December

This is the first time I've ever stayed on BLM land. I parked at the 3rd spot in midday and stayed all night. I only saw about 6 vehicles go by the entire time I was here, but I couldn't see or hear anyone else aside from that. The view was nice from my spot. Had about 2 bars on average with…

Who knew internet speeds would be the fastest I've ever seen

I have Verizon and management stated Verizon is the best in this small town and look at my screen shot, it's no joke. He said all other carriers suck.

This is on top of their 2 free wifi access they provide which are already fast! So if you need to get work done and reliant on good internet…

Riggs Flat Lake

Beautiful area and the lake is great for fishing. The road up is long unpaved and rough so not ideal without 4 wheel drive. The campground was peaceful. Smelled and then saw skunks. Pit toilets and they were NOT clean.

Riggs Flat

The fishing is great for beginners and kids, not hard at all and the entire lake is easily accessible. The views from the top are great, the road in up the mountain is not ideal for small cars since its unpaved for a few miles up. There were a lot of skunks in the area and they will get into your…
