It’s was decent. There are designated spots around installed fire pits with grills. There is one bathroom that is handicap assessable. I don’t believe there’s water or electricity here. Parking lot is always empty and the road is quiet.
Stayed here one night on our way to Gila Cliff Dwellings.
A mix of flat spots (slightly too close to the toilets) or tilted spots,further away/up the hill. Pit toilet is available. Picnic tables and fire pits available
There is a canyon that we hiked up behind the campground
