It was your typical dispersed camping experience at ~6500 feet. Pine trees. Cool nights. Beautiful place. Schnebly Hill seems like a campground more geared toward off-roaders though. We saw at least 40 ATVs, Polaris, quads, etc…and we were only there for 24 hours. The Foxboro Lake was bone dry but the dam was still neat to check out. About 15 minutes north is Munds Park and Pinewood…go there for an even more off the beaten path experience. It was pleasant but I wouldn't recommend if you're really looking to get away from PEOPLE. Its a great outdoors spot if you just want some fresh air mountain vibes. PS - Please bury your toilet paper after wiping and while you're at it bury your poop! Ladies, we dont like to see tampon applicators left in the wild. Be better humans in the wild PLEASE!
Exit 226 off of I-17 and head west on Schnebly Hill Rd. There is dispersed camping all along the road for the first mile or two. It is first come first serve. This is a dirt road and on the weekends there are a lot of off road vehicles and they will not hesitate to drive right through your campsite if they want to get somewhere. We ended up blocking the trail that the off-roaders kept taking with a fallen tree and our teardrop camper to keep them out. That might have been a jerk move but it was crappy to have them drive through and kick up dust at all hours.
After that was taken care of, we had a nice time. The little pond was full of water, lots of wild life, camp fires were aloud, plenty of trees for hammocks, lots of hiking trails, space for group camping.
I did have some hitchhiking spiders when I got home.
