Spot outside Scottsdale

A little busy, but nice little area with hiking trails near by. Easy spot to get to that is right outside of the Scottsdale area.

Great spot for shoreline camping

Did a quick overnight trip. Easy to access in any vehicle. If you want to be more secluded keep following the shore line NW, however the more you travel the more ground clearance you’ll need so bring a vehicle with a little off road abilities of you want to be away from the trailers and RVS. Tons…

Amazing!

If you're into mountain biking, this is THE campground. Breathtaking views, cool Nature Center! Showers were just okay. We had a hard time getting them to warm up and the lightbulbs were burnt out so I had to shower by flashlight... But worth it!

Fun!

No frills but where else can you camp with burros? Nature Center was great and the staff was helpful. Showers were "meh".

Clean & Quiet

A little too far out of town if you’re working in the city, otherwise it was quiet with beautiful views. Plenty of trials for mountain biking, and rentals and restaurants in Fountain Hills, about 15 minutes from the campground.

Good sites

Where I camped wasn’t necessarily within this same campground but I drove on Tonelea trail that you will see split off to the left from the main road. On this trail we’re few spots which were all taken. It was a really nice environment with hills, grass and all. Where I setup was about 50 feet…

Excellent Regional Campground

This campground in McDowell Regional park is for tent camping and small Vans, etc. Mix of both walk in sites and back in sites. It is set back a ways from the rest of the park. No showers here. Need to go to the trail head or RV campground for showers which was a bit of a hassle. Excellent…

Off season

Not busy this time of year. The weather is a little bit cool for swimming, but it’s a nice place to hang out by the campfire. Great place to get a little bit off road but not really get too off road….

Nice park great customer service

This is a very nice park, mostly permanent residents. Tons of activities and social interaction. I’m not real keen on high occupancy parks but I wanted to stay near Phoenix - just not in Phoenix. Here to attend my grandsons graduation. Close to major shopping and restaurants. Extremely quiet. Note:…

Desert Tortise

Being near the lake is very nice. Our campsite was not level at all. Basically on the side of the hill. We could not reach the water hook up because of this. There are bathrooms and that’s the only amenity. Having two gate codes was frustrating. The map and signs are not very clear or easily…

Hard to get into but great once here

The road in is several miles of dirt washboard. But the views are great once here. Not close enough to lake unless want a mile or so hike. Most roads are little more than clearings of brush motorcycle trails. Lots of OHV in the area, so weekends really noisy. But nice otherwise. Good…
