Amazing views!

Really amazing views of the lake and mountains across from site 203 and around.

Bathrooms are pretty nice with flush toilets and running water.

There are many accessible sites, bathrooms as well.

Campsites are close and there are a ton of them but the campground is basically empty... we can see every star in the night sky.

Absolutely no noise except the coyotes and my two crying baby’s 😀

Verizon Lte works pretty well, 2 bars and 1.5mb/s without antenna and 10-20 mb/s with antenna.

There is a nice dock on the lake. Tonto national Monument is 5 miles up the road and really cool to see!

Gas and food is not close, so bring what you need.

We would stay longer if we could.
