Great Stay

The rangers came by to let us know info about the water table and answered all our questions about attractions nearby.

Close to cliff dwellings and Gila NF trailheads

This campground is really nice for being free. There is a very clean bathroom with vault toilets and there are a couple sm water spigots. Some sites have picnic tables and all have some sort of fire pit. It's good to have a trash bag handy to pack out your trash, as there is no trash service up…
