Pretty decent place

I loved this place, there’s ton of activity you can do and people are really nice and friendly. The bathrooms aren’t the cleanest but they aren’t that bad. You should definitely bring your own fire wood also don’t forget your fishing rods. The only problem I had was one of the visitors was…

Camping allowed Friday/Saturday night only

We took our RV out just for the the day. I would recommend getting there early as spots fill up as people park for the day and play in the river. Plenty of spots to set up a tent, but not very spread out or private. There were bathrooms and picnic tables as well. A great place to view the wild…

Camping only During October 15 – April 15

This campground is not ideal for trailers as you park in a parking lot.  There are pit toilets.  Picnic tables at each site (5).  There is a $9 per night fee and also a Tonto Pass is needed. Camping is only allowed from October 15th to April 15th. During the summer, the area is day use only.

Coon Bluff

No camping. This area appears to be day use only now. There are several posted signs that say no camping. Throughout Coon Bluff there are several picnic tables fire pits and grill areas. Fire restrictions are in place right now so there’s no fires or grilling which is typical for the summers.

No Camping

No overnight here which is fairly recent, I remember tents here not too long ago. We like to take the kids here to play in the water. We also use it as a finishing point for Kayaking.

There are 7 picnic tables here with a few fire pits and raised grills. Currently a fire ban is in place including…

Great if you’re on the water

There is some no overnight camping at coon bluff or Phon D Sutton, just day use. You need a tonto pass or national parks adventure pass. While you can buy them at some of the sites like this one, they are cheaper in town, I posted a picture with pricing. Kayaking is great and there are some cool…

Camping alongside the riverbank

This ‘campground’ is only open from October through March for overnight stays (Friday and Saturday nights only). Also why I only gave it 3 stars. Lots of sites to choose from, first come first serve. Public restroom/out houses (large tanks underground) dumpster in the parking lot for easy disposal…

Weekend Camp Spot

Overnight camping permitted on weekends only. lots of picnic areas and camping right next to the Salt River. Fires permitted in grills/rings except in dry season. This spot is typically not as crowded as Phon D Sutton, downstream. Tonto Pass required. Majority of area is shaded throughout the day!

Great Picnic spot right outside the city

First, I’m pretty sure this spot does not allow overnight camping. Coon’s Bluff, about five minutes up the road, does allow overnight camping, but only on weekends.

You will need a Tonto Recreation Pass. They can be purchased around the valley at most convenience/grocery stores/wal marts for $8.…

Wild Horses!

Nice spot close to PHX and right on the Salt River. There are many developed sites with fire rings. Do not expect solitude or quiet, especially on weekends and school breaks. However, a glimpse of the local wild horses is very possible, assuming they haven't all been rounded up.
