El Caso 2…Don’t mind if I do!

Love this site. We end up here a few times a year. This was a special occasion to celebrate life and enjoy family. It was spring break and we drove through a blizzard to find ourselves under clear skies at Quemado Lake. El Caso camp ground is a few miles into the canyon. The camp sites are spread…

Stars 5 Campsite 4

About 10 designated sites around a loop. The sites are set up as to where you pull/back your vehicle/camper into the site. There is a picnic table. The site itself is compacted gravel. There is an area at each site where you can set up tent(s) on dirt. Very little to no shade so suggest you bring a…

Beautiful site BUT be aware of bear

Had a great time last August. We started at this campsite as we found it online. When we arrive there was only one other person there but very limited camping. There are only a total of eight sites all of which are set up for horses. All the stalls pretty clean and didn’t smell and the outhouse was…

Beautiful boondocking.

No facilities (it's boondocking) but beautiful! We camped upstream of the lake in a shallow valley with a dirt road leading to the site/area. We could walk to the lake and across the dam to explore the creek behind it. I slipped in the creek and dislocated my little finger on our second day, so…

Would go again if I could.

Amazing spot, we were working our way out of the state through Gila and stopped here for a night. We took a small dirt road off the main gravel entrance and found a superb spot at the end. Drive was tight so a small vehicle is recommended, 2wd was fine. Stars were as stated, luminous.

Fresh & new

Great 1 nighter! The camp host was very friendly & helpful. This park is brand new, and clearly they know what they’re doing. Good wide turns, clear signage, and in 10 years all the baby trees will super. We even had pizza delivered to our spot. All basics covered, but no thrills. A…

Great primitive campground

Fires are currently banned and the vault toilets are locked due to the pandemic but this is still a great spot to view a pristine night sky. The area surrounding is also littered with hot springs, hiking trails, and an abandoned mining town. We will definitely be returning. Cattle were free roaming…

THE place for star gazing!

Primitive campground with 1 bathroom. 5 designated drive up spots for camping as well as more possible dispersed sites out in the meadow. Several fire rings hint at possible tenting sites. The wilderness that surrounds the site and lack of lights truly make the night sky magical. Check campground…

Hilltop dispersed camping

This is a small campground on top of a hill, therefore great for stargazing! It is dispersed camping (yea, free!) and has two vault toilets. The bathrooms/toilets were well kept and not super stinky like in some places.  There's gravel parking great for RVs, and plenty room beyond that for tents.…
