Nice dispersed camping.

Very nice dispersed camping. Only three other RVs here. Great views of wide open spaces

Quiet, beautiful view.

Great spot to split up our drive. Super easy access and road in, the coordinates take you to one spot, but there is multiple here. It’s not far off the road but far enough to be peaceful and quiet! Amazing view of Mt. Graham!

Roper Lake State Park

We stayed there for three nights in Fall 2022. Wonderful quiet lake and walking trails. Near to shopping if needed. Great birding!

An Arizona State Park

It's on par with other state parks in AZ. Kinda pricey but you do get electric and water. The men's showers are not working but it's Thanksgiving so probably no one around to fix the problem. We have ATT and four bars.

Dispersed camping but road is rough

We searched for fire agates but decided against camping here because the road is a bit sketchy. The only spot big enough has a large bump that would likely tip my travel trailer farther than is safe.

  • Where to hunt for rocks.
  • The scenery!

Reasonable Price

We are staying here for 6 days. Mostly quiet (except when they emptied the dumpster at 5am on Monday morning) and peaceful. We have Passport America so the price is right. Full hookups.

Clean, quiet, comfortable

We visited in November, so temperatures ranged from the 80s during the day down to the 40s in the night. The campsites were very clean and well-maintained, and at the time we visited, the campground was very quiet. Waking up early to watch waterfowl on the lake at sunrise is going to be one of…

Well maintained, great hiking

We found the ranger to be very helpful in terms of outdoor activities (hiking, fishing, etc.) The park has great spaces for tent campers and big rigs, with electricity for 30 and 50 amp campers. They also have several cabins right on the lake. 

Our spot had a picnic table and was right beside…

Checked out campsite

Went and checked out campsite. Was certainly hot. Little bit of walk to river but not bad. Was post monsoon weather. River was flowing fast and looked like chocolate. A lot of side roads for 4x4, quads etc. The Bonita creek drive is gorgeous and provides creek water you can get in. Was a beautiful…

Clean,! But big ole carp!

Went 7-6-2020. Campsites are good size. Had power and water hook ups. Virtually no spots have shade. Pop up AC couldn’t drop the temp below mids 80’s. Lake is small. Has a little “beach” area to swim. Water felt great. Fished that night and son caught and released a big ole carp. All in all a…

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.

Toxic Political Environment

Greeted by neat & clean environment (tho 100% rock) & Offensive political flags instead of the American & AZ flags. No COVID protocols followed. Will not return. Recommend Roper Lake State Park nearby.

Favorite camping spot in AZ

We really enjoy this spot. There are 7 campsites with ramadas and fire rings. One small pit toilet. There’s a small hiking trail to a bridge that leads to the day use area and along the creek. We saw some coatimundi and lots of evidence of other wildlife! $5 a night is great too!
