Houston Mesa

Great campground. Next to Payson. Opens up lots of opportunities. Biking & hiking. Excellent and well maintained camp sites. Each site is surrounded by trees. Private.

Great location & well maintained

We have camped here 3 of the past 4 years. It is a great location: close to the big city facilities, but out of the hustle and bustle. Small to medium-sized for AZ campgrounds. Has pool and pickle-ball court and nice laundry. Staff/owners are sensitive to COVID safety. Individual sites are paved…

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!

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…

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.

Don’t try taking an RV in winter

The only road open is from Roosevelt side over the dam wall … we had a 40 ft Cruise America RV. I would have been nervous taking an SUV down that road!!

We tried calling to ask about conditions and no one advised of road issues. Camp might be wonderful but the road killed any chance of us going.…

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….

Well groomed sites, great location

Rode the scenic Apache Trail Arizona route 88 looking for some BLM land. Couldn’t find a flat place to pull over. Grateful to find a campground near the end of 88. Easy access nice trails in the area for hiking

Burnt Corral Campsite

I stayed at this campsite for one night in early November because I wanted to find a place that would be good for paddle boarding the next morning. It was a bit too cold in the morning for me to actually paddleboard but it was still very very worth going. The road is a little bit tough to get down…

Great camping!

Well-spaced sites, clean flush toilets and sinks. Pretty with trees. Close to road. We could hear traffic, but it didn't impede our good time.
